If the metal melted then what was it still doing in the wreckage? Why do these to concepts just not fit together?

Recycling is environmentally Friendly.
Building a Warship out of materials gleaned from and Act of war, is purposefully symbolic.
Using symbology to assist in the capture of one who thrives on symbology is genious.
So it's an Environmentally Friendly Symbolically Genious effort, which I applaud.

Afganistan is land locked, how do you get a boat, a large naval battle ship, into Afganistan?
Unless they plan to make it a hovership it will not be used to find Osama Bin Laden as it can not get into areas that he is in.
Although why did he attack? He was put in power by Your president Reagan, funded and supported by your president Bush Sr., got 69million dollars from your president Bush Jr. in June 2001, he was a family friend with the Bush Family, why would he attack? Or at least not attack when a family friend was in power and not done it when your president CLinton was in power to make him look bad?

Nobody answered the post regarding the Bush / Reagan creation of Al Queda?
WHat we did in the 60- 70-80s is coming back to haunt us. It is that simple. We dont care how many farmers in Central America were killed , we wanted bananas in our wheaties.
We didnt care how badly people lived under the dictators we supported, and even installed in government, we wanted our Oil, Copper and industrial metals.
We invade Iraq because the saudi arabian son of Billionaire buddy of President George H Bush funds the attack in New York......someone explain the logic here, becaused there is none to see.
Iraq will come back to haunt the USA for generations.

Ever wondered why?

The world would like us to forget 9/11 for several reasons...
1. they hate us, and were cheering or think it was something we deserved....
Very succesfully as well, right?
2. we are currently rolling over the desert and into several nations as retailiation for the incident.
Terrorists have nothing to loose, you can threaten them to attack 100 fold, they don't care. Waving the stick doesn't work for terrorists.
I would like to counter the argument "we are creating terrorists" because if 9/11 has caused us to invade two countries, that demonstrates to these people that the US will retailiate 100 fold for any further attacks.
Yeah that worked really good for Chechnya, didn't it? Mailing testicles is the answer to stop terrorism, not stopping international intervention...
The Russians demonstrated this by removing several of the terrorists testicles and mailing them to their families and then executing them.
Indeed they are, 9/11 was one sweet payback for those evil terrorists...
paybacks are a .....well you know how the rest goes,
