stonicus: We've always been at war with Eastasia...
Marine1: FarkedOver: Marine1: Religious fundamentalists who use violence to further their means. Specifically, in this case, those who follow militant IslamWhy is militant islam at odds with the US? Do they hate our freedoms? Do they have legitimate gripes?They see Western culture as sinful and a threat to their lifestyle, as well as an obstruction to their efforts to spread theocracy based on the conservative interpretation of Islam. The US happens to be the big player in Western culture.

HectorSchwartz: All this BS amazes me. We lose a couple buildings and 3,500 people. We then retaliate by leveling entire cities and killing about 200,000 people./never forget!!!!1

We then retaliate by leveling entire cities and killing about 200,000 people./never forget!!!!1Proportional response - those building were more expensive than the collection of mud huts and those 3,500 people were worth a lot more than the dirty heathen peasants huddling in said huts.

They won. They farking won. We lost our civil liberties and our country is flat broke.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Amos Quito: [www.yourbbsucks.com image 450x370]Prophesy.Protip: Sometimes, news networks show interviews recorded earlier, while running a live news crawl.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: You know, it would be one thing if I'd lost so many freedoms due to a competent adversary. I'd still be upset, but I'd at least understand it. But no, the government wants me to live in pants-shiatting terror of guys who set their shoes on fire on planes, or light their cranks on fire on planes, or try to build bombs out of cans of gasoline and firecrackers, or come up with devastatingly clever plots like bringing the Brooklyn Bridge down with a blowtorch, or blowing up the Holland Tunnel so water could flow uphill toward Wall Street, or taking out the Sears Tower with nothing bad thoughts. Hell, the one plan they were successfully able to carry out in this country apparently shot their entire wad of sleeper-cell suicidal malcontents, managed to hit only 75% of its targets, and killed just 3,000 people in buildings that had closer to 50,000 people total in them.No, rather than some super-genius nemesis, we're supposed to be scared of a bunch of primitive, cave-pooping nitwits who spend most of their time arguing over how much facial hair their sky daddy thinks they should have, the best way to carpet their women, and which ancient statues should be blown up.Terrorists are morons. They succeeded on 9/11 not because they were good, but because they were reasonably lucky.The greatest threat to my life is the daily commute to work, the delicious package of bacon in my fridge, and my penchant for power tools coupled with a disinclination toward safety gear. Terrorism isn't even in the top ten list of things threatening me.
NutWrench: AntonChigger: inb4 all the "BUSH WAS THE REAL TERRORIST WHAARGARBL 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB" folks come crawling out of the woodwork./Grabs some popcorn and a front row seatHow about, "Bush was a miserable failure at everything he did in life, including the presidency and a lot of stupid people voted for him. Twice."
Amos Quito: Protip: Watch the video.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Rrrrriiiiiiiight./Occam's Razor, how does it farking work?
iaazathot: Marine1: HectorSchwartz: All this BS amazes me. We lose a couple buildings and 3,500 people.

So why did we kill a couple hundred thousand (conservative estimate) people in Iraq for 9/11, thus allowing them into Iraq?
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Amos Quito: Protip: Watch the video.So I've got a video with no indication of what time it was actually being transmitted, a Chyron that be representing more up-to-date information that what is being shown in the video, and a "LIVE" indicator that randomly appears and disappears throughout the video. And your conclusion is that this is proof that a building next to two large buildings that just got hit by airplanes was demolished, but the super-duper secret plan to do this was for some reason leaked to a foreign government's news service so it would make it slightly easier for them to produce their news by allowing some flunky to type a single sentence into the Chyron generator a few minutes early only someone else screwed up and broadcast it earlier than was "supposed" to have happend.Rrrrriiiiiiiight./Occam's Razor, how does it farking work?
Hellbound: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Rrrrriiiiiiiight./Occam's Razor, how does it farking work?This is Amos Quito, just wait for the "it's the Jews" bit. He already got to the conspiracy stage.Give him some time to warm up.
EdNortonsTwin: I've never been a victim of crime which puts criminals at the bottom of my list of threats. The police are really just so unnecensary.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Our leaders are morons. They succeeded on 9/11 not because they were good, but because we are so terribly gullible.
thecpt: That song is awful. Please use this land is your land.Thank you.
Amos Quito: Enjoy.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: EdNortonsTwin: I've never been a victim of crime which puts criminals at the bottom of my list of threats. The police are really just so unnecensary.But criminals exist! I read about them doing nefarious activities in my town. There's a reasonable chance I might run into them.Apart from the 19 guys that took a one-way trip to virgin-land, I gotta say, I don't see a lot of terrorists running around this country.And criminals' schemes actually work. Like, "Hey, nobody's home, let's break a window, go inside, and steal stuff," is a reasonable plan."Let me put a can of gas in my car and then put a firecracker on a timer and let the resulting shockwave blow up Times Square" is not a reasonable plan for many reasons, not least of which is that it fails to account for the difference between explosion and combustion.Terrorists are incredibly rare and generally incompetent, particularly when it comes to attacks in this country by beturbaned, ululating malcontents. Criminals not so much. See the difference?/Bad analogy is bad.
Thunderpipes: Wow, new low for even Fark guys. 3500 people lost family members, you don't care. This is not a left or right issue. Just... wow.
Marine1: Yes, these people are a menace.
indylaw: I went to bed last night thinking that maybe we'd moved beyond the morbid death cult of 9/11. But no, I wake up this morning and some of my friends post "Never forget" on their stupid farking facebooks.Oh, that we could forget. That we could go back to a time when we don't spend trillions of dollars hacking and slashing at phantoms and wars brought on false pretenses and justified by fears. That we could go back to a time where the only people that expressed the notion that their political opponents were all traitors were complete farking lunatics living in the shadows. That we didn't have to go through this theater of throwing away our cup of coffee and undo our belt and our shoes and let some minimum-wage mall-cop cretin feel us up FOR FREEDOM before we can board a plane to go home for Thanksgiving. That we could stop this morbid never-ending grief musical every September where we turn 3000 bankers and office grunts who were in the wrong place at the wrong time into martyrs of the Second American Century.I farking hate 9/11. I'm tired of having to pretend that I still care deeply or else I'm some sort of traitor. It's been over a decade. Let those people rest in peace rather than digging up their bones for your political song and dance, and let the rest of us get on with trying to live our lives with some semblance of sanity, dignity, and liberty.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: the government wants me to live in pants-shiatting terror of guys who....
Pantubo: Jihadis are nice, harmless people. Just like they were back in August 2001.I can't believe people don't know this!
Lt. Cheese Weasel: ThrobblefootSpectre: HectorSchwartz: We lost our civil liberties and our country is flat broke.What civil liberties did you lose? And I agree we are broke, and should decrease government spending.He can't carry large bottles of mouthwash on planes. Yep, the towelheads won.....
Marine1: HAMMERTOE: Marine1: Yes, these people are a menace.So, how do we get rid of everybody who worships imaginary magical beings?Because they're all evil, amirite?/are you actually a "free thinker" or did Dawkins give that one to you in one of his releases?
Hellbound: Amos Quito: Enjoy.Right, so that means it's the Jews
Hellbound: Not that now Americans will understand what the Jews are facing
Hellbound: which is what he actually meant but that 9/11 was a Jewish conspiracy.
Hellbound: You're like a broken anti-semitic record.
Hellbound: And regarding your building 7 conspiracy, even nutjob supreme like the guy behind loose Change thinks it's ridiculous.
mbillips: What a boogie man might look like:[newspaper.li image 300x298]So, since 9/12/01, we've had 36 deaths at the hands of terrorists in the U.S. Meanwhile, nearly 450 Americans have died from beestings, and more than 400 have been killed by lightning. Whar is USA Bee & Lightning Protection Act? Whar?
DaCaptain19: Thunderpipes: Wow, new low for even Fark guys. 3500 people lost family members, you don't care. This is not a left or right issue. Just... wow.Approx. 10,500 deaths per year from drunk driving alone.And alcohol is a legal drug.We have buildings in which the sole purpose of attending is to become too drunk to drive.Memorialize THAT.
Cold_Sassy: Um, you forgot the "Patriot Act" which pretty much stripped you of ANY rights, you two dummies.
