Did September 11 mark 'new stage of world history'?
October 8, 2001 - http://www.themilitant.com
BY PATRICK O'NEILL
Commentators in the media as well as capitalist politicians have struck
a constant theme in the aftermath of the September 11 attack: "The day
the world changed," they say. That phrase, taken from the headline of
the British Economist magazine, is one example. Washington, London, and
other imperialist governments are hoping to convince working people and
middle-class layers that a new world has dawned, and that their moves
to war in Afghanistan, the militarization of the United States,
restrictions on workers' rights and constitutional liberties are being
taken simply in response to the attacks in New York and Washington.
The world changed when Clinton got busted cheating on the first lady, and
got impeached. It was a pre-cursor for the events to follow. Sept. 11, was
the culmination of a years worth of planning by a bunch of desert doods, who
resented Bush Jr. taking office. Think about the magnitude of the strike on
the twin towers, and the careful, and pain-staking planning. Nothing quite
as complex like that happened during the Reagan, and Clinton
administrations. Only small time stuff. That just goes to show you how much
the desert doods hate the Bush bloodline.

in failures others massive loss of lives. This Islamic terrorism goes
way back and is merely getting worse- and they're targeting westerners
in the hopes that the west will do what they can't- castrate

The first twin tower attack was very small. Not spectacular at all as
compared to what was happening outside the U.S. Where's the link connecting
Bush Jr, to the other attacks happening on non-U.S. soil when he wasn't even
in office yet? Anyhow, I'm only suggesting that his election finally drove
the Islamic terrorists over the edge, daring them to commit to a massive
loss of life *within* the United States, unlike the world has never seen --

there's no way they'd tolerate the world with his son in office. I think
that's a reasonable speculation since neither you, nor I are within close
proximity to any of the players at that elevation to know any better, other

prevailing around Bush Jr's election time was that of, "like Father, like
Son", as in, same hidden agendas, which may not sit well with the Oil

The first twin tower attack was very small. Not spectacular at all as
compared to what was happening outside the U.S.
Actually it was an even better plan- lucliy for us some Yuppie scum
illegally parked their mini-van just where the terrorists wanted to
park their rental-van... otherwise the towers would have collapsed.
The mastermind of the plan was a New Jersey (Rutgers) educated
engineer who knew just where to place the bomb... 10 feet was all that
stood between failure and sucess that day.

Where's the link connecting Bush Jr, to the other attacks happening
on non-U.S. soil when he wasn't even in office yet?

I used the word "S-p-e-c-u-l-a-t-i-o-n", my man. And, there's nothing silly
about mine. If I don't get it straight from the horse's mouth, or witness it
for myself, then that leaves some room for me to speculate, which can't be
construed as a permanent opinion. Someone with a delusion isn't open to any
truths, alternative, or not. I am. What we see/hear from the media about
World politics is second hand information, maybe even half truths, or
downright lies. I'm saying that we're not getting the full scoop. Look, Bush
Jr hasn't found the MW of D yet, like many speculated he would, but he also
hasn't slapped a U.S. claim of control on Iraq's oil like many speculated he
would either. A lot of what we "think", we know is, to a certain degree,
speculation. So, who're we to believe? The left, or right chicken wing?

Seriously! That seemed to be a common theme among people who didn't like
Bush Jr. Don't shoot the observer man. Myself, I'm half-n-half with that
speculation. You never know. It's hard to measure a son's bond/loyalty to
his father. I don't pretend to know if it's strong, or weak, or what their
hidden agendas are. Common, or not. Only the possibility that Bush Jr. may
be, as some have said, continuing where his father left off, and that's what
I eluded to in the Terrorists being pushed over the edge. People claimed
that Bush Sr. screwed up our economy, which Clinton tried to fix, and Bush
Jr. is now screwing up again. Who are we to agree/disagree with that
opinion?

Look. I'm not Hudsy, a.k.a. Hudson Jackson, a.k.a, MH2. Hudsy is/was

which I
Post by KJ
do, go ahead.
Think, KJ. The plot started in 1996. Who knew who would be President in
2001 in 1996? What about in 1998 when the CIA first heard about a plan to
fly planes into the WTC?
9-11 had nothing to do with Bush. It had everything to do with the
perception that the US would not respond to terror strikes and was a paper
tiger.
Do the math Pig
We have a long history of warfare that is significant, even the desert doods
aren't that dumb to ignore the might of our military force, and weaponry.
It's one of the reasons why Russia could never get the nerve to fully go toe
to toe with the U.S. Now, I know that Iraq's military leadership has made
fools of themselves on, and off the battlefield during the latest war, but
their soldiers in the trenches knew what kind of force they'd have to reckon
with in the end, thanks to the Gulf war.

I think that 9-11 was just the terrorist's sore loser way of saying to the
world that they never accepted the Desert Storm defeat. And, in their
embarrassment, probably decided to finally do their thing during Bush Jr.'s
time, because yeah, they probably did think he was a wuss, and therefore,
wouldn't be met with a decisive response for war. But now, the whole globe
knows exactly what the U.S. is packing. This is significant for countries
like China, North Korea, and yeah, the former U.S.S.R. who have, or are
contemplating to flex against the U.S. We all know that it doesn't mean shit
to the terrorists, because they just can't understand, and accept the terms
of a lost cause.

Their reasons for terrorism never seem to focus on a specific, maybe, thanks
to the media who further add to the pool of speculation. But one thing is
for sure, with the amazing fact that most of the terrorists are Saudi
Arabian, and not Iraqui should be a good indicator that we need to leave a
lot of room for analysis, and yeah, speculation. There's a lot that just
don't quite figure, and it bothers me when others come off as knowing for
sure what it's all about. Wasn't it the popular belief at one point that it
all had to do with religion power struggles? Nah. I can't believe in that a
hunnert percent. Then there was the oil issue. That theory went down the
tubes. Then there was this association Bush Sr. had with some of their
leaders. Man, the whole point is,
w h o t h e h e c k r e a l l y k n o w s?

The plot as you say, could've all just been a grand scheme concocted by our
own military leadership to get us into a situation where we can test our new
military hardware, etc. One never knows if that's how a plot is played out.
Man, you can do all the reading you'd like, and walk away from each sitting
thinking "you know", but in the back of your head still lies the questions,
and the "what ifs".

Remember..."think outside of the box". Yeah, just because the price of gas
in California has gone down, you gotta think about who in the U.S. is
controlling that exactly. Some people think that it's the desert doods
controlling the price of our gas, but how's that? Our country has a lot of
filthy rich/powerful people, and who socialize with most of the swinging
dicks in Washington, Corporate America, and European powers. We also have a
pretty good reserve of oil. Who is to say that these rich American doods
didn't connive with each other in an attempt to make more money, connive
with the rich/powerful everywhere else around the globe, come up with the
string of terrorist acts here, and there, and play the cards so that
eventually, the U.S., and Iraq would be going toe to toe, again! And, in the
end, everyone of them conniving bastards came out even richer than they were
before! Both Bush Jr, and Saddam just might very well be the poor schmucks
caught in the middle, manipulated, and used as scapegoats in a grand money
making scheme.
W h o k n o w s ?

There's a whole lot of shit that can be looked at to try, and solve a
puzzle, and that's the game I like to play. Which, I'm doing with yawl right
now. Mostly, because I'm bored. It's Sunday, and I need constant breaks from
my current development project. heheheheheh.

to the terrorists, because they just can't understand, and accept the terms

But 9-11 was not at all about the Gulf War (or only marginally so). OBL is
not Iraqi, nor was he a supporter of Saddam (they certainly had contacts,
and had a mutual self-interest in their hatred for the US, but even as OBL
called on Al Qaeda to attack the US to defend Iraq he said Saddam was an
unbeliever). Indeed, he is a Saudi, who were attacked by Iraq during the
Gulf War.

OBL's fatwahs against the US do specify one outgrowth of the Gulf War --
they want non-Muslims out of Saudi Arabia, including military. But OBL's
stated goals in his writings, speeches and fatwahs, is the complete
expulsion of non-Muslims from lands formerly belonging to the Caliphate --
which included much of Spain and the lands around the Mediterranean up into
the former USSR and India. He seeks a global Muslim society, based upon
14th century laws and science.

9-11 wasn't outraged Arab manhood striking back. It was an attempt to
destroy the economy and will of the US to lead to a global Islamist rule.
OBL did not "lose" anything in Desert Storm. OBL is fighting against
Westernization and progress; look at what the Taliban did in Afghanistan to
see the world as he would remake it (no music, no kites, no women on the
streets, no education for women, etc.).

Think about it -- the Suadis *won* the Gulf War... yet 15 of the 19
hijackers were Saudis. How does this fit in with the "sore loser" theory?

While the elite media pretend to not understand, students of the ME
understand the "roots of terror" all too well, as do everyday Arabs. The
elite media don't want to go into the details because it reflects less than
well on the Arab and Muslim philosophies and culture. In a multicultural
world, where every culture is to be valued as equal, how do you retain your
liberal viewpoints when you have to explain that at the base of terror is
not poverty (most of the hijackers were from wealthy or upper-MC families)
or oppression by the US but a barbaric culture seeking to subjugate women,
countenance slavery, murder those who do not believe as you do, and impose a
failed 14th-century judicial and economic system on a modern world?

The media refuses to acknowledge even the simplest of realities of the ME --
that the Arabs don't want a separate Palestinian state, they want to
exterminate all the Jews and erase Israel from the map. How many statements
from Arab leader saying exactly this over the last 50 years do you need?
How many statements of purpose (such as that of HAMAS, Hezbollah and Islamic
Jihad) who state *on their websites* and in their charters that they exist
to kill every single Jew and eradicate Israel? That such an undeniable
truth is constantly denied by the press, and hence believed by the sheep,
simply boggles the mind. It is as if in the statement of purpose of the
Republican Party there was a sentence saying "We support the repeal of the
13th Amendment and the re-enslavement of blacks." Would the media ignore
this? I don't think so. Yet since Israel was formed it has been the stated
intent of all Arab states that Israel not be recognized and be destroyed.
One Arab leader, Anwar Sadat of Egypt, broke with this position... and was
assassinated.

The reason the American (and world) public do not "know" about terrorism is
that we want to speak nicely about the barbarians, partly because we want
their oil and are too sophisticated to take it like we would have in the
past. Instead of taking it, we let ignorant barbarians whose fathers herded
camels lay about in lavish palaces and bribe officials around the world.
They speak of frienship in English then publish attacks in Arabic (which the
ferengi are, of course, too stupid to translate).

Peter Jennings will never talk about the barbarism of the Arab and Muslim
cultures because that would be "judgmental", and we can only be judgmental
about America. So we moan and groan about trying to understand these
misunderstood people -- who just laugh at us as they take advantage of us.
They are adept at playing our game -- they know the words to use to make us
feel guilty (they send their children deliberately into fire fights to get a
photo op, then complain about the lack of funds to teach their children).
They don't think like Westerners, although they understand our compassion
and sense of fair play and do all they can to turn these "weaknesses"
against us.

The West closes its eyes to the barabarities of the Arab Muslim world, and
pretend they are just like us "only poor." Just ain't so, Mabel.

That is absurd. People want to say how incompetent Bush and his
administration is, then they want to say they are so fiendishly diabolical
as to be able to hatch and pull off the most monsterous plot in history
without a single leak. C'mon. Leave the conspiracy theories to Oliver
Sione. Logic dictates that you go with the simplest explanation that fits
the facts -- OBL planned for years to hit the US and did. Nothing outside
of conjecture has ever come out even in the conspiracy sites to dispute
that.

Well, because the same factors that affect the price of oil in the US affect
the price of oil in the rest of the world.

Don't waste your time with conspiracies. They depend upon other people
being a whole lot smarter than anyone else, and if there is one thing we
should understand about our government or industries, they are filled with
people of varying intelligence and creativity. Anyone who has ever worked
with the gummint, or worked with high-level executives or politicians,
realizes how silly conspiracies of the elite really are. Most of these
folks are just plain dumb, and couldn't keep a secret if their IRAs depended
on it.

Randy, we have the same TV channels, and the same news sources. Although, I
don't read the paranoid, schizophrenic web sites that you review from time

meaning is true. For all we know, they could be alumni at Al-Jafar's tavern.

Their reasons for terrorism never seem to focus on a specific, maybe, thanks
to the media who further add to the pool of speculation. But one thing is
for sure, with the amazing fact that most of the terrorists are Saudi
Arabian, and not Iraqui should be a good indicator that we need to leave a
lot of room for analysis, and yeah, speculation. There's a lot that just
don't quite figure, and it bothers me when others come off as knowing for
sure what it's all about. Wasn't it the popular belief at one point that it
all had to do with religion power struggles? Nah. I can't believe in that a
hunnert percent. Then there was the oil issue. That theory went down the
tubes. Then there was this association Bush Sr. had with some of their
leaders. Man, the whole point is,
w h o t h e h e c k r e a l l y k n o w s?
While the elite media pretend to not understand, students of the ME
understand the "roots of terror" all too well, as do everyday Arabs. The
elite media don't want to go into the details because it reflects less than
well on the Arab and Muslim philosophies and culture. In a multicultural
world, where every culture is to be valued as equal, how do you retain your
liberal viewpoints when you have to explain that at the base of terror is
not poverty (most of the hijackers were from wealthy or upper-MC families)
or oppression by the US but a barbaric culture seeking to subjugate women,
countenance slavery, murder those who do not believe as you do, and impose a
failed 14th-century judicial and economic system on a modern world?
The subjugation of women, slavery, and murder are just ingredients thrown

Republican Party there was a sentence saying "We support the repeal of the
13th Amendment and the re-enslavement of blacks." Would the media ignore
this? I don't think so. Yet since Israel was formed it has been the stated
intent of all Arab states that Israel not be recognized and be destroyed.
One Arab leader, Anwar Sadat of Egypt, broke with this position... and was
assassinated.
You talk as if Israel was formed just yesterday when it's been around since
Jesus's time. Are you saying that this Israel hatred thing isn't a front for

The reason the American (and world) public do not "know" about terrorism is
that we want to speak nicely about the barbarians, partly because we want
their oil and are too sophisticated to take it like we would have in the
past. Instead of taking it, we let ignorant barbarians whose fathers herded
camels lay about in lavish palaces and bribe officials around the world.
They speak of frienship in English then publish attacks in Arabic (which the
ferengi are, of course, too stupid to translate).

That's not necessarily true. You're a businessman, and you deal with

You really aren't current on this ME thang, are you? Israel was founded in
1948 after the UN mandated a partition of the area into a Jewish state
(Israel) and an Arab state (Trans-Jordan, later Jordan) along the lines of
the British proposal found in the Balfour Declaration of 1920. Before that,
the land was relatively unpopulated, except for remnant Jewish settlements
and Arabs (both in villages and nomads). The Zionist return movement had
started in the late 1800s, and a number of Jewish towns had sprung up,
attracting Arab workers.

Prior to the British Mandate (where the Allies in WW1 divided up conquered
lands in the ME), the region was governed by the Ottoman Empire. Israel as
such ceased to exist in Roman times with the Dispora, when the Temple was
destroyed and Jews forced to flee the region for their lives.

Israel as we know it, and the conflict that rages today, dates effectively
to May 14, 1948.

It goes way beyond the leaders. There is a cultural gap between Arab

assume they think like us is dead wrong. They assume you will cheat them,
because that's what they'd do to you if they had a chance. Compromise is a
sign of weakness, compassion means you are either gullible or weak or both.
Even the "charitable" elements of the culture grow out of the inherent
treachery -- to have any social stability, you need to set aside homicidal
and thieving impulses when someone is in your home. Even the practice of
hajib, or veiling women, comes not as a modesty provision but to protect
women and their men from kidnap and murder. Because of the early practice
of infanticide for girls (a man needs strong sons, not weak women!) there
was an imbalance of the sexes. Women were kidnapped and their husbands or
brothers who tried to protect them were killed. Beautiful women were more
desireable and thus a bigger threat. The veil and bulky clothing was to
keep temptation to a minimum.

Ah, yes. Folks like MEMRI are also 'Muricans, but provide the greatest
insights into Arab culture through translated documents. But, for that
matter, CAIR is also a 'Murican site. That doesn't tell you much.

These are historical documents, KJ. They aren't forgeries, they aren't
propaganda. Sometimes the radical charters have been ammended over time to
change the offensive wording to appeal to polictical allies, but many times
they have not (I believe the PLO has changed some wording, while HAMAS has
not).

OK, how about the official PLO website, www.fateh.net. Read their
constitution. Note well Article 12:
Article (5) Liberating Palestine is a national obligation which necessities
the materialistic and human support of the Arab Nation.


Article (6) UN projects, accords and reso, or those of any individual
cowhich undermine the Palestinian people's right in their homeland are
illegal and rejected.


Article (7) The Zionist Movement is racial, colonial and aggressive in
ideology, goals, organisation and method.


Article (8) The Israeli existence in Palestine is a Zionist invasion with a
colonial expansive base, and it is a natural ally to colonialism and
international imperialism.


Article (9) Liberating Palestine and protecting its holy places is an Arab,
religious and human obligation.


Article (10) Palestinian National Liberation Movement, "FATEH", is an
independent national revolutionary movement representing the revolutionary
vanguard of the Palestinian people.


Article (11) The crowds which participate in the revolution and liberation
are the proprietors of the Palestinian land.



Goals

Article (12) Complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist
economic, political, military and cultural existence.


Article (13) Establishing an independent democratic state with complete
sovereignty on all Palestinian lands, and Jerusalem is its capital city, and
protecting the citizens' legal and equal rights without any racial or
religious discrimination

Explain how this is compatible with any "roadmap to peace". The PLO
("Fateh") rejects UN accords (i.e, the partitioning of the British mandate
into Israel and Jordan, specifically rejecting the right to existence of
Israel) and calls for the military "eradication" of Israel ("economic,
political, military and cultural").

How can you say our media is biased against Israel, when their motivation

Hello? Where have you been over the last few years when the charges of
media bias have been argued back and forth? The bias was so bad in the LA
Times that there were organized boycotts where Jews canceled their
subscriptions (http://www.geocities.com/truthmasters/mar2003.html), ditto
the NY Times (http://www.newsmax.com/showinside.shtml?a=2002/5/1/133522).
Others merely pointed out the bias
(http://www.jewishsf.com/bk021101/us52.shtml).

I have noted the bias for quite some time in the Chronicle. Last year there
was a headline about "bold" Palestinian gunmen going into a settlement and
shooting an infant and woman in their beds. Somehow, I don't see even the
Chronicle describing the 9-11 hijackers as "bold." "Bold" has positive
spin; Websters defines it as "fearless before danger : INTREPID : showing or
requiring a fearless daring spirit". Is this a journalistically neutral way
of describing terrorists who dress as Israeli soldiers to kill women and
infants in their sleep?

You also have the editorial policy of the Chronicle not to discuss the ages
of Israeli minors killed by terrorists (going so far as to cut them from
wire story copy that is, with that exception, the same word-for-word) while
giving the ages of Palestinian children killed or wounded. There was the
instant condemnation of the "massacre at Jenin" by the press, which turned
out to be a hoax.

All media is biased. They are not independent news organs simply seeking
the news -- each paper or news outlet has an editorial policy, has style
books which reflect that bias ("Here at the NY Times we say 'undocumented
workers', never 'illegal aliens'.") They have a target audience (which is
why the SF Chronicle has a picture on the front page or the Datebook section
of a gay person or couple almost every day) and pander to that audience.
Papers like the NY Times set the news agenda for the day; you will find most
major metro dailies echo the stories and perspective of the NY Times, as do
the network news programs.

Rarely does the anti-Jewish sentiment come across as boldly as a cartoon
that appeared in the Chicago Tribune on May 30, 2003, showing a hook-nosed
Sharon following a path of dollar bills being laid down by Bush leading to
Arafat. How many Jewish stereotypes can *you* spot in the picture?
(http://www.camera.org/index.asp?x_context=6&x_article=480) The
implication, among others, is that it is Israel who must make the move to
peace, when year after year the peace process is shattered (as in the last
few days) by Arab terrorists intent on derailing it (peace doesn't fit with
their agenda of destroying Israel).

Israel as we know it, and the conflict that rages today, dates effectively
to May 14, 1948.
Some of us know that the conflict that rages on in the middle east today
has
to do with land, and who owns/wants what.
Well, if you *know* that, then you are wrong. Why, then, when Rabin offered
97% of the occupied territories to Arafat did he walk out and unleash the
current intifada?

This has never been about land per se. This land has been ruled by a
variety of nations over the millenia, Arab and non-Arab. Before 1948 there
were about 500,000 people living in what is now Israel at a level of poverty
and squalor not seen outside... other Arab lands. The few oasis of
cultivation and civilization were what the Jews had carved out starting in
the late 1800s. Since 1948, the Israelis have created a miracle in the
desert far beyond what their oil-soaked neighbors have accomplished.

This is *not* about land. It is about the subjugation and eradication of
Israel. Although, in a way, it *is* about land -- denying one inch of it to
Jews. Why wasn't 97% of the land enough? 100% of the land would not have
been enough, so long as Israel existed. The land the Arabs want is
*Israel*, not the occupied territories. This is what is behind the "right
of return" Arabs demand. Some 400,000 Arabs left Israel in 1948; some 4-8
million demand to return. They would overwhelm the Jewish population and
take over the country. Israel wisely denies this.

There has been a great deal of research done into Islamist terrorism which
the public simply does not take the time to read. ME experts like Daniel
Pipes were warning of Islamist attacks in the US homeland long before 9-11,
and their analysis has proved spot on. You have to study this stuff,

Even the "charitable" elements of the culture grow out of the inherent
treachery -- to have any social stability, you need to set aside homicidal
and thieving impulses when someone is in your home. Even the practice of
hajib, or veiling women, comes not as a modesty provision but to protect
women and their men from kidnap and murder. Because of the early practice
of infanticide for girls (a man needs strong sons, not weak women!) there
was an imbalance of the sexes. Women were kidnapped and their husbands or
brothers who tried to protect them were killed. Beautiful women were more
desireable and thus a bigger threat. The veil and bulky clothing was to
keep temptation to a minimum.
These are people who *think* differently than we do. Failing to
understand
Post by Congenital Kano
that in today's world can be fatal.
Dood. To me, that's totally absurd. Failing to understand that there are
armed sickos out there *is* what's fatal. Not cultural differences.
If you assume your enemy is just like you only dressed funny you will not be
prepared for their attacks. Would you force your pregnant wife to strap
dynamite to her body and blow herself up on the hopes of killing one or more
enemies? Do we place weapons in schools and hospitals? Do we crowd
civilians around military targets to either protect them or provide PR
against the "heartless enemy?" Do we behead the wives and children of
suspected traitors to keep them in line? Do we surgically remove women's
clitori so they feel less sexual stimulation and are less likely to stray?
Do we consider it honorable for a brother or father to kill their sister or
daughter because she "shames" the family by dating a non-Muslim? Do we
believe that women should remain uneducated and sequestered in the home,
only to go out with a male relative? Do we stone a women who has been raped
because she has shamed her husband or family?

I think you recognize cultural differences between the Pinas and the States.
Why would you not believe there would be greater differences between
cultures that do not share a common language, religion and history?

Two things. Look at the major hot spots in the world today, and you

where ever you find them. This "religion of peace" brings bloodshed
wherever it grows powerful... and other Muslims do not condemn or seek to
stop it. Could it be because their holy writings say that this is a good
thing?
Dood. It's not the religion that causes death. It's the men that possesses
the sick mind, the greed, and the lust for power.
Why is the common denominator Islam? When you look at trouble spot after
trouble spot, and in each case there are Islamic radicals involved in
diverse parts of the world who don't have ethnic ties, you have to look for
the common denominator.
Post by Congenital Kano
Where are the "peaceable" Muslims in today's world? What are they doing
to

control their radical brethren?
This is like saying, "What was Kj doing to prevent Joeker from going
madcow
on Renowl". Dood! Are you getting enough food? I need to bring you to
Peppermill again. Nah. Let's do Black Angus.
If a Catholic flew a plane into the Dome of the Rock claiming to do it in
the name of Jesus and the Church, the Pope and Catholic leaders from every
nation would stand up and denounce the act; Catholics and Christians from
around the world would contribute generously to rebuilding the shrine, and
dedicate themselves to finding any others in the plot. After 9-11 there was
virtual *silence* from the Muslim clergy, in the US and abroad. What weak
statements that were made (and never by the main leaders) said they
regretted the loss of life "but you should think about your actions that
have brought this on you." Arabs in the US were more concerned about how
*they* might be targeted. The Arab-American groups like CAIR spent more
time denouncing racial profiling and potential abuse than stating that these
terrorists did not represent Islam. Tony Blair and Dubya were more
apologetic than the Muslims were, saying that this was not "true Islam."

Sorry, look at the history of Islam. Mohammed was a warrior who recorded
many battles to subjugate people to his beliefs by the sword in the Qu'ran,
and the history of Islam has been one of bloody conquest and subjugation
ever since. In the last 60 years, almost every armed invasion of another
country has been by Muslims.
Nah. It's my way of getting a vibe for people, places, and things. Don't
take offense, but if I thought like the responses you typed, there's no
way
I would've shared a table with you, a strange white guy at Peppermill in
Daly city. I don't know Randy, but it shore feels like you're testing me
to
see if I really am racist. Which, I'm not!...ya damn honkey.
Don't confuse racism with appreciation of cultural differences. Muslims are
not of a particular race, but they share certain cultural traits based upon
their belief system.
So, uh...when we gonna do Black Angus?

Think, KJ. The plot started in 1996. Who knew who would be President in
2001 in 1996? What about in 1998 when the CIA first heard about a plan to
fly planes into the WTC?
9-11 had nothing to do with Bush. It had everything to do with the
perception that the US would not respond to terror strikes and was a paper
tiger.
Do the math Pig
We have a long history of warfare that is significant, even the desert doods
aren't that dumb to ignore the might of our military force, and weaponry.
It's one of the reasons why Russia could never get the nerve to fully go toe
to toe with the U.S. Now, I know that Iraq's military leadership has made
fools of themselves on, and off the battlefield during the latest war, but
their soldiers in the trenches knew what kind of force they'd have to reckon
with in the end, thanks to the Gulf war.
<schnipped for brebity>

Even so, other countries don't understand the U.S. all that well and
other cultures constantly underestimate or misjudge U.S. resolve. Yes
we talk it to death and protests make big news items at home and
abroad and this gives them the wrong impression. You see, in most of
their cultures the only discussion that takes place is whose turn it
is with the camel at night.

Arabic cultures don't have a long history with democracy (much like
Africa oddly enough) and so view any debate about policy as a weakness
in the government or country. To their view, a strong leader would
take charge and make the tough decisions without debate. That runs
anathema to western democracies and the U.S. in particular. They see
public debate and discourse as a lack of resolve because something
like that would never be allowed in their sandbox.

Ah, I recall that post.

What amazed me was when Randy revealed the Amsterdam hooker's
name was La Shaneequa.

Dood...dunno that it was specific to Dubya. The hijackers were taking
flight training in the U.S. before the 2000 general election was held.
In fact, I'd say the planning went back to the late 90's.
93 is when the first wtc attack happened. So, yeah, you're correct.

The whole terrorism thing has a long history and while they might not
have whacked such high profile targets and killed as many in one round
the only significance to the Twin Towers/Pentagon/Pennsylvania attacks
are that they were inside the U.S. rather than in Europe or the Middle
You get a free Cuban cigar of course, because that was the main
significance. But the timing of it...that could be very significant too. Why
did it happen while dubya was in office, and not Clinton? Why did it happen
after the dot com bust, and not during?
Simple timing. The pilots started their training in 1999 and 2000.
It takes normally about a year to train for the Commercial license (a
precursor to heavy jet training). Prior to that you'd have to
identify who the pilots would be, get them into the U.S. on a student
visa, make financial arrangements and so on while not being
conspicuous.

Had they started earlier, it could've happened under Clinton and
before the bust. In fact, if I were OBL I'd have wanted to make it
happen during the boom to destablize the markets.

East. The USS Cole, the Khobar Towers attack, the Embassy bombings,
all the way back to the Beirut Marine barracks bombing all come to
mind.
Yes, it does. But the planning that went behind them, wasn't as complex.
More like a series of small weapons fire aimed at various points to keep the
enemy's attention scattered.
.
The planning behind this wasn't anymore complex than a truck bombing
in the Middle East. The only difference was getting 4 pilots through
flight training. That cost (my guess) around $120,000 plus living
costs. The jets used were free, no bombs needed to be built or
supplies smuggled. What is so complicated? You give al Qaeda credit
for more than they deserve.

As for meticulously planned and executed, maybe. I tend to think that
bin Laden got very lucky because we were very lax.
That's correct. Maybe, not. Looking at how mismanaged communications on
America's part sunk Pearl Harbor, it looks like the same thing happened for
tt/pent/penns. Maybe not, maybe it was overlooked on purpose to justify an
attack on Iraq, boost the economy, expose Enron. W h o k n o w s? You gotta
play the facts, opinions, and theories, conspiracy or not, to see what's
behind it all.
Sure. One thing I lernt in pilot school is that every accident is a
chain of events. Breaking one event in the chain changes the outcome.
Likewise this thing. Weaknesses in airport security, border
screening and fumbling of intel between agencies all added up to
"boom".

I know I'm sounding pro-Dubya but I'm not. I just don't buy into the
whole 'get even with Bush' or 'conspiracy to invade Iraq/boost the
economy' thing. Think about it...since Sept. 11th the watchword in
the U.S. has been paranoia. How does that help the economy? "Gee
Mildred, maybe we won't take that vacation to Disneyland this year cuz
those Arabs might try to blow it up." And if OBL was such a good
planner who wanted to get even with Bush, why pick a day to attack
when he's not even in Washington? Better yet, why not hijack a plane
in Miami and crash it at the school he was visiting in Tampa?
Nah...it just doesn't pass the make sense test to me.

If you want to make the assertion that OBL has been beneficial to
Bush, he has. His popularity went up at home, folks like Randy became
overnight conservatives, the whole color coded alert system promotes
paranoia and there have been changes to how free and open our society
is. I doubt that Bush would've had the strong support at home to
attack Iraq without OBL's little party. So OBL is maybe 1 for 3
having caused us to disrupt our lives with the unintended effect of
strengthening Bush's position and bringing further intervention in the
Middle East (Afghanistan and Iraq so far).

Yeah, but you're fogetting the logistics. Their housing, rental cars,

Sure, that conspiracy, and others have a lot of holes leaking theories, and
the questions you posed are in the back of so many minds. Why this, and why
not that. The fact that OBL didn't hit Bush could lend itself to a
conspiracy where they're conniving with each other. "Tell you what Bush, why
don't I coordinate an attack on 3 points of interest, you blame me,
therefore, justifying a search-n-destroy mission in Afghanistan, then when
people aren't looking, blame Iraq, get your people in, and destroy our
mutual enemy. But you must ensure that I'm not touched".

Post war Iraq...Have we caught OBL yet? Heck. We don't even have Saddam.
Whattup wid dat? Maybe both of them are sipping on Margaritas on some
private island, laughing at Americans for wasting their time on wondering if
Tupac Shakur is really alive, because...just how does he manage to get newer
songs released on the radio when he's supposed to be dead? Oh Geezo.

The dot com boom started tanking in 2000, a year before the attacks.
My employer was one of the last and the proverbial patis hit our fan
in December 2000. By September, we were already fully in the tank.
Was it 2000? I guess it might've been that year for the rest of youse guys.
Heh. We programmers get in a year or two earlier I suppose.

Why take photos of the targets and synchronize? OBL didn't intend to
actually cause the collapse of the WTC. That was an unplanned
'bonus'. He just intended to wreck havoc. You watch too many good
spy movies dood. This wasn't much more complex than someone holding
up a 7-11. Send 4 Arabs to U.S. flight school (many schools used to
advertise in foreign flight mags and say they'd do the visa
paperwork), sneak another 15 into the country, some via Canada.
Hijack 4 passenger jets on a widely known light travel day (Tuesday).
Find several targets well marked on any map.
7-11 holdups remind of the movie, "Raising Arizona". Actual holdups I'm
sure, are conducted in the same frantic fashion. Enyhow...even with your
summary, it still seems complex, because there's a lot of variables you have
to consider. A 7-11 hold up has much less.
Don't confuse large or cumbersome with complex (though this wasn't
large either). Complex would be infiltrating NASDAQ and manipulating
the prices to make a profit. BTW, OBL probably financed the whole
thing by some short sales made just before. He's shrewd.

"Those who do not learn from history..." Pearl Harbor isn't exactly a
good analogy though. Back then we knew what the Japanese were up to
and still fumbled the ball. This time it was a surprise helped along
by general laxness, bureaucracy and ineptitude. To which we've added
more bureaucracy in the form of the Dept. of Homeland Security. Yeah,
that'll fix the problem.
Heh. A recruiter from that dept called, and asked if I can come back out to
play. Not sure if I can handle the pressures of an additional wife, but at
least this one has more positives than the actual one. Heheheheh.

I'd write that book KJ. Then I can say..."I knew Kenny Joe when he

I wish I had the talent for bookwriting. I once toyed with the idea of
writing a script for a movie containing intrigue, action, adventure, and the
occasional Pilipino sighting. Everytime we watch a flik, and we see someone
that looks Pinoy, or see what we think is a Filipino last name in the
credits, all of us are like..."hOY PINOY!".
