9-11
    #4644463 - 09/11/05 02:32 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Four years ago today terrorists hijacked four planes during flight over American air space. Their targets were the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the White House. Three of the four planes were successful missions for the terrorists, with the fourth plane going down in a field in Pennsylvania.

I often think about the Americans that died that day when I see an airplane flying in the air. I will never forget that day as long as I live.

The terrorists on that day killed thousands of people and wounded a nation. The events of that day have changed the course of world history.

As a nation we are still wounded and bitterly divided. It is at such a low point that now natural disasters are viewed as political events. I think that it is a sad state of affairs that public discourse has degenerated to this level. This whole hurricane affair has me questioning why I spend so much time on politics. Maybe it is burn out. If politics are going to be in the gutter, maybe I shouldn't spend my time in the gutter.

I thought about doing a simple 9-11 post and a tribute to the fallen. But I realized that it would be impossible to do that without it degenerating into some form of bashing, fighting and accusing.

That is understandable to some extent. It is hard to put 9-11 in context without thinking about all the ramifications and consequences of our response to 9-11.

I hope and pray for the future of the world and the future of my children. I hope that they can live in a world of peace and prosperity, and a world devoid of 9-11s. I hope that the surviving victims of 9-11 have found the strength, courage and intestinal fortitude to put their lives back in some semblance of order and move on from their grief. Just as I hope that the victims of the large natural disaster down south can rebuild their shattered lives. And I hope that some day all of us can realize that what unites us is stronger than what divides us.

We need to always remember our scars and let them enrage us.

Smart people look at their scars and alter their behavior so as to ensure their well being. Fools lash out blindly in rage and get more scars.

We have to keep killing Islamic terrorists to weed their genes out of society, even by allying ourselves with moderate Muslim governments.

I have no problem with killing Muslim terrorists, or any kind of terrorists for that matter. However, genetics has nothing to do with terrorism. Terrorism is a political act as much as it is a violent act, and it requires strategies and responses that take this into account. Our alliances with and support of certain governments in Muslim countries is a major motivating force in the creation of the terrorist mindset.
