That could be a whole other discussion in itself, couldn't it? Could be we have some American Idiot apologists around too, but that
seems to be too inflammatory of a thing to say. Too politically incorrect, so to speak?

No, I never forget.
People of many countries and religions died that day.
Oh please. Americans die all over the world all the time, but its not something that personally affects us. 9/11 was completely different. Do not act
like you know how we feel about it, because a few people from your country happened to be some of the victims.
You clearly have a tendency to make excuse for Islam. You also don't seem to have any feeling about the fact it was involved in launching the landing
gear of a plane in to this building.

Where is this response from you coming from based on what I posted? Strawman much?
I know where the landing gear landed. Irrelevant. Lots of debris landed in a lot of places on that day.
I am "acting" like nothing. My country? I'm American. And not Muslim, in case you going to crawl there next up your strawman's butt.
It personally affects some of us when anyone dies. Goes to awareness and empathy, I suppose.
America and Americans were fortunate and had some damn good law enforcement going on to not
have been so affected by foreign terrorism to that
degree for many decades. Many countries were and had been dealing with it sanely, with intelligence and law enforcement/paramilitary/military,
depending on their governmental situations, and with a they're-not-going-to-get-to-us attitude and with common sense and logic in their responses.
Was 9/11 tragic and horrible? Hell yes! But the after effects are probably even worse. America lost its collective mind on that day.
OMG how could this happen to us?! Even though it was an arguable inevitable possibility forever. Even though it was happening all over the world,
where people would simply pick up the pieces and carry on with their lives...not letting the "terrorists" affect them because, see. That's how
A good majority of Americans let the fear mongers control them and allowed and are still allowing a lashing out against an entire religion, allowed
attacks on two countries, and caused the needless deaths of hundreds of thousands more people, more Americans and allies included. This was a
disproportionate response on many levels. Illogical. Based on fear. Where is the real grit, determination, and backbone to pick up, carry on, and not
let the terrorists win?
And look what they've done to us your "leaders" and the "terrorists." They've made us look like fools, hating an entire race and religion. They
made us as a people and a country look like unthinking, bigoted idiot cowboys who were collectively unaware of the world state before that day and
answered this affront with bombs and bullets and more killing. As if "terrorism" started on that day. As if it's not a fact of life and a danger
ALWAYS and everywhere.
It's not even logical to think that you can
fight or even quantify an ideology with guns and bombs and so much collateral damage, which will
simply breed more terror for generations to come. There's that lack of logic again.
And look around you. At what America has become. The leadership who kept scaring you used the events of 9/11 to rob you blind. Same leadership who
left the borders and ports wide open had you so scared about "terrorists?" Like that makes any common sense and wasn't a clue to how scared
really weren't. Theyused
(some of) you and your fear and ignorance.
Yes, take a good hard look at what's happened and is still happening as a result of one attack. You know, there's a hole at ground zero that pisses
ME off more than any Islamic community center ever will because that shows they really GOT to us. They won.
That being said, I will remind you that the topic in this thread is the ADL...hypocrites or not?
