Al Qaeda spent roughly half a million dollars to destroy the World Trade Center and cripple the Pentagon. What has been the cost to the United States? In a survey of estimates by The New York Times, the answer is $3.3 trillion, or about $7 million for every dollar Al Qaeda spent planning and executing the attacks. While not all of the costs have been borne by the government — and some are still to come — this total equals one-fifth of the current national debt.

Now, really.... besides that false assertion, there is the one about WHY they would do that- just to see it go down? Out of what? Simple hatred? Desire to fall harder, some more? ...Oh wait, let me guess "Because they are jealous and hate us for our freedom." N'importe quoi !
A little less aggression from your side would be nice, as I didnt attack you in any way. Last week investors fled from the Euro into the USD. This is a fact. I am working at the FSE so please dont try to outsmart people you know nothing about.
Apart from that you totally misunderstood what I said.edit on 12-9-2011 by ALF88 because: (no reason given)
