  1. Amen Dwayne. In one brief paragraph you describe how America produces a roving scale replica of the Vietnam War Memorial, yet has nothing to commemorate the Gulf of Tonkin.

    The chances of America abandoning it’s “Defense Economy” burlesque, drastically diminished after a volunteer army helped replace “citizen soldiers” with a more manageable “warrior caste”.

    How long it takes to mold that force into a Neo-Praetorian Guard, can be reliably predicted by our collective gullibility.

    Please keep the good stuff coming… We may yet defy astronomical odds.

  2. The important thing to remember is that U.S. terrorism caused the 2001 tactic and retaliation. Osama was a terrorizing friend. Shock-and-awe terror bombing and torture has been used by the U.S. empire since colonizing the Philippines, well, forever come to think of it. Remember the nightmares that immature hegemony creates that cause unnecessary genocide and soldier suicide. Royal behavior was always weak- Saudi or American, it seeks fake honor, wealth and power and murders innocents to do so.

  3. The bipartisan utter lack of concern let alone guilt for the tens of millions of innocent human beings killed, maimed, and displaced in US “interventionist” wars, and coup d’états since WW2 subsequently revealed to be based on lies and greed is astounding. The sociopathic zeitgeist that describes current US foreign and domestic policy is unconscionable. This is what we should never forget.

  4. “Mourn for the dead and fight like hell for the living” For starters, overturn the Patriot Act, punish war criminals, defend the homeland from corporate profiteers, pass Medicare for all.

  5. Another telling component of “the whole fucking shitshow” is Building Seven which fell at 5:20 PM. 52 stories straight down in 5.4 seconds including 2.25 seconds free-fall (gravity driven with no resistance from the structure below). There must be near-simultaneous global failure of all 81 steel columns for this to happen. This is controlled demolition. What might this imply?

    1. A complex plot involving hundreds if not thousands of people keeping a secret for years before and after the scheme was designed that defies Occam’s Razor?

      1. To be fair Mr/Ms Moderator, lots of secrets were kept during WW2:
        Hiroshima.
        Nagasaki.
        And the Tokyo and Dresden Firestorms.
        Close to one million civilian fatalities.

      2. My comment emphasized facts that are not disputed. Occams Razor is what I utilized when I concluded “This is controlled demolition.” The Moderator counters “Thousands of people keeping a secret for years before and after the scheme”, to nullify my critical point. His (or her) assertion has nothing to do with the collapse of Seven. Why “thousands of people”? This is off the point and intended to deflect inquiry and belittle those who rely on the laws of physics. These physical principals exemplify Occams Razor. Your unnecessary extraneous assumptions are dull.

      4. Controlled demolition would mean humans placed bombs earlier or during the event, likely at least dozens. Then all the people in the chain of command, all the people that would needed to be shutdown so as not to properly investigated wreckage.

  6. They did it before–and they did it again. You guys should read Robert Stinnetts book- Day of Deceit about Pearl Harbor.

  7. The steel that fell with building seven was shipped off lickety-split to China; a proper forensic examination therefore impossible. Nevertheless, the symmetric collapse of 52 stories in 5.4 seconds must be controlled demolition. Shaped cutter charges utilizing nano thermite will burn above 4000°, through steel like a hot knife through butter. There were explosions experienced in Seven well before it fell. Office fires had nothing to do with this immense operation, except to serve as a lame explanation.

    1. Ground zero was a crime scene in which Mayor Guiliani intervened to preempt and obstruct a properly conducted investigation. This is a fact that all those decrying “conspiracy” theories choose to ignore.
