's message, "TERRORIST ATTACK TO THE U.S." on 11:04:34 09/13/01 Thu
Its been a week now and people, abroad at least, have had more time to analyze what happened.
If anything this attack was 'spectacular'. It was covered from every angle and was visible and overwhelming. I lived in NYC most of my life and to see something like that happen is still incredible. I still can't believe that it did happen.
While I am sorry for all those that lost their lives, especially the firefighters and other aid givers, I can't help but think that the only reason any of this happened is because of the USA's arrogance and less than commendable foreign policy. This attack was executed in response to America's actions in the middle east. The main culprits in dragging the USA into the middle east is oil, Israel, and, once, the USSR.
Lest we forget, the USA created Bin Laden, and once their business was done, they forgot about everything there. The USSR was gone, so why should the USA care anymore, right? Typical US arrogance.
As the editor of Time Europe said, Americans don't understand why they are hated by so many. They are brainwashed into thinking that they are the best and that their foreign policy should be that of imposing thier 'happiness' and 'perfection' unto others. They also believe that that IS what the US gov is doing and has been doing. Thats not true.
While I totally condemn what happened, as mentioned by many many people... the USA had it coming. Its horrible that it took something of this magnitude for people to hopefully wake up and realize what has been going on. But the US people are already being brainwashed into
the "kill all" mindset.
Indians (sikh) are being killed or beaten just because some Americans are so ignorant to think that because Bin Laden has a turban, that these people are involved or sympathise.
I fear for the world now because of America's impatience.
Bin Laden, while most likely involved, riterates his innocence. But America does not care. Should Bin Laden be innocent, they wouldnt care. They are set onto destroying him and his organization, and whether it was him or not, he is the only thing the US can give as a scapegoat.
This is a mess and I wish there was a way that we could all get out of it in a more peaceful way without causing more destruction and death.
... and on another note... while the US has been struck by this attack, the rest of the world's conflicts go one and no one cares about them nor checks them anymore. All of a sudden, the US is the only country in the world that has lost innocent victims.
