    9/11 was not the first terrorist attack on US soil. In fact, throughout history America and her citizens have committed terrorist acts.

    The bombing of the Alfred P Murrah Federal building was pinned on Timothy Mc Veigh. He confessed and mainstream America believe that he and Terry Nichols were the sole conspirators. There is a school of thought that puts forth the thesis that the two perpetrators were covering up a larger conspiracy tied to Middle East terror groups. While this may be true, the basic fact is that the bombing was a terrorist attack executed on American soil against American interests. So 9/11 was not the first strike against America on American soil (sorry Noam). But perhaps I am splitting hairs here.

    Then again, when one looks at the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing one cannot ignore the blatant fact that we have been attacked already. What differs between the 1993 attack and the 2001 attack? For one, the 1993 attack was declared as and treated as a criminal act, which it was. The perpetrators were apprehended and justice was served. In 2001, Bush declared war. And the evidence was destroyed, a lot of inconsistencies were covered up and no true investigation was done. Unless you think the modern day Warren Commission AKA the 9/11 Commission did their job and no more should be said on the subject. For me, 9/11 was a crime and the cover up of that crime was an offense far worse than the actual terrorist attack. And one last point, for all those people who claim that George W Bush has kept us safe since 9/11; it was 8 years between the first WTC bombing and the next attack.

    September 11, 2001 brought America to a screeching halt. This was an effective and brutal attack on our soil. Instantly we knew it was Islamic extremists who sought to radically change our culture to one of a strict theocracy. Americans were shocked and appalled, and rightfully so. But violence caused by religious extremists is not new to America. The Puritans exacted very harsh treatments to those colonists who did not abide by their God-fearing rules. The witch trials of Salem and other places displayed a pathetic, yet dangerous, hysteria surrounding the fear of subversive behavior. But the worst may be the bombings of abortion clinics and the killing of their doctors. Religious zealots dehumanize their victims when they believe that the doctor or the female getting an abortion is sinning and must be punished. Zealots believe that they will be rewarded for doing God’s work. Sound familiar? The 9/11 terrorists had the same belief.

    I can go on and on about terrorist activities committed by America and her citizens. There are many more examples. However, the basic fact is that now the guns are pointed at us. But it is the guns of Corporate America. It is the guns of the Military Industrial Complex. It is the guns of the Pentagon and the White House. America is changing into a softer version of a fascist state (think of George Orwell’s 1984). A state controlled by banks and investors. A state where individual liberty pales in comparison to the liberty of capital.

    We are cannon fodder for oil executives, mercenaries and war profiteers. We are cattle for business to exploit. The sad part is that we embrace it with open arms because that is what we have been conditioned to do.

    no ..your arguments and opinions on these subjects lacks key pre-programed responses such as references to mental illness, tinfoil hats ,twilight zone music and the regurgitation of long ago disproved misinformation that characterize the the typical FOX viewer

    But it is soooooooo true. You do realize that the news is not the news per se right? The news is opinion shaped by the heads of the owning corporations and by the sponsors.

    You do realize that the military industrial complex has gained strength and is now infiltrating our state department. First response teams will soon beome privatized and run by firms like Blackwater right?

    Rather than being sarcastic and flippant, you should be opening your eyes to what is happening to our country. We should be stopping this at all costs.
