i was looking at CNN unfortunetly, and found this

imo proof that this was an act towards WW3

Eh. Doubtful.

WWIII =/= the war on terrorism.

WW3 would have to be a war between several large countries...

There is no "war on terrorism". It is fake, just a brand image for you to suck up like Coca Cola or McDonalds.

Sweet Bird Of Truth (Matt Johnson)...

6 o’clock in the morning & I’m the last person in this plane
Still awake
Y’know I can almost smell the blood washing against the shores,
Of this land that can’t forget it’s past.
Oh the wind that carries this plane is the wind of change,
Heaven sent and hell bent!
Over the mountain tops we go, just like all the other GI Joes


This is your captain calling--with an urgent warning
We’re above the Gulf of Arabia--our altitude is falling
And I can’t hold her up--there’s no time for thinking
All hands on deck--this bird is sinking

Across the beaches and cranes, rivers and trains
All the money I’ve made--bodies I’ve maimed.
Time was when I seemed to know,
Just like any other GI Joe
Should I cry like a baby, or die like a man
While all the planet's little wars start joining hands,
Oh what a heaven--what a hell!!
Y’know there’s nothing can be done in the whole wide world.

I don’t know what’s wrong or right,
I’m just a regular guy, with bottled up insides,
I ain’t ever been to church or believed in
Jesus christ
But I’m praying that God's with you when you die.

Masked does have a point. In some respects, the War on Terrorism is no less hype than the latest obsession with the Scott Peterson trial or Janet Jackson’s breast. Ask yourself why in fact the War in Terrorism merits such intense and obsessive focus and attention? Are deaths caused by other wars, disease, natural disasters and hunger any less significant?

The world sustains on average 15 to 30 million deaths alone per year due to disease or famine. AIDES accounts for 2.6 million deaths per year. Natural disasters account for roughly another 250,000 deaths per year. Accidents: another 500,000 deaths per year. 150,000 of those deaths are caused by medical mistakes!

The death toll due to terrorism from 1980 to date is well under 20,000.

So why the hype? Hold on to your seat now….The answer is MONEY!

The Fiscal Year 2004 budget request for the Department of Homeland Security is $36.2 billion.

Congress appropriated money for the war in Iraq in two supplemental appropriations. The first, Public Law 108-11, signed on April 16, 2003, appropriated $79 billion, and the second, Public Law 108-106, signed on November 5, 2003, appropriated $87 billion. That’s a total of $166 billion dollars.

(For kicks, see what we could have spent our money on….

But is that money even being spent wisely?

Since the September 11 attacks, about $13.1 billion has surged into state coffers from the federal government -- sorely needed money that has gone for police, fire and emergency services to help finance equipment and training to prevent and respond to terrorist attacks.
That is a 990% increase over the $1.2 billion spent by the federal government for similar programs in the preceding three years. But the vast majority of the $13.1 billion was distributed with no regard for the threats, vulnerabilities and potential consequences faced by each region.
Of the top 10 states and districts receiving the most money per capita last year, only the District of Columbia also appeared on a list of the top 10 most at-risk places, as calculated by AIR for TIME. In fact, funding appears to be almost inversely proportional to risk.
If all the federal homeland-security grants from last year are added together, Wyoming received $61 a person while California got just $14, according to data gathered at TIME's request by the Public Policy Institute of California, an independent, nonprofit research organization. Alaska received an impressive $58 a resident, while New York got less than $25. On and on goes the upside-down math of the new homeland-security funding.

Sure, we could attempt more earnestly to solve many of world’s, or our nation’s problems, but solving such problems rarely, if ever, makes anyone money. Thus the reason for the hype.

Just my humble opinion.

And, oh, enjoy that CocaCola and MickeyDees...
