So, I was on facebook the other, and I cam across my cousin's status update. And boy, did it piss me off. I replied to it with a little angry rant. I'm kind of curious to see what you guys think about it, so I'm gonna post it here.

Him: Why are people sending me 9/11 rememberance flags?? Why would I want to remember the biggest lie in American history??

Me: "Why would you want to remember the biggest lie in American History? Why wouldn't you want to remember it? So you're one of those people who think it was a conspiracy and it was actually our own government that set the whole thing up? That's fine, but it doesn't matter who did it, our own government or Muslims, that doesn't change the fact that hundreds, nay, thousands of people were unjustly killed that day. The people on the planes, in the buildings, the rescue workers who risked and lost their lives trying to save these people, all unjustly killed.

And what about the family members and friends of the people who died that day? How do you think they feel? "Oh, but it's all a conspiracy, the whole thing was set up by our own government, so why should I give a rat's ass about those innocent people?" Right?

If anything, it's actually even more sickening if our own government, the very thing that exists to serve us, the people, set it up, than if it was just a group of Muslims. So you guys who believe it was all a government conspiracy should be even more appalled by it. Which one would be considered more heinous, a father killing his son, or a stranger killing a random person? Now apply that to this situation.

That, is why you should remember it."

So pit, what do you guys think about this?

He's not obliged to care. Some people have a level of emotional detachment which means they are capable of being aware of events, that, whilst tragic had no direct baring on them, without going into paroxysms of grief.

Meh, I guess you're right. I'm one of those people I guess.

When I was 14 I thought the government did it but then I saw that popular mechanics website and I realized it was just too implausible.

I do think they haven't told us everything though, whatever that means. Al-Qaeda are definitely responsible though.

I dunno I really don't care about it...it happened but it's nothing special to me, I don't care if people really put up flags about it. I mind my own business and so do they so it's a fair balance.

9/11 was a win all round.
We got rid of like 3000 americans, a few religious extremists and then got rid of even more American soldiers in the war.

I think that deserves remembering.

I'm normally perfectly fine with others opinions, but when it's something like "thousands of people died... but it was done by our own government, so I don't care" then it annoys me. But yes, he is entitled to his own opinion though

It's allowed to annoy you. That's your opinion. But acting like an ass is acting like an ass, no matter what reason you go about it for. See, while he just stated his opinion, you launched into a facebook tirade that should have been a blog anyway and dramatized yours.

I don't see what's so confusing about this.

Every time someone puts up a 9/11 rememberance flag, the government wins just a little bit harder.

People like this piss me off too. But I don't get all worked up about it because taking on an idiot like that doesn't do any good. They're still stupid and there's millions of them left.

9/11 was horrible. A lot of people died, did it change the world as much as people make it out to? No.

Maybe it's incorrect of me to think this, but whenever someone brings up 9/11 in a vengeful manner, i can't help but think of the 80,000 civilian victims of the Hiroshima atomic bomb, or the 40,000 civilian victims of the Nagasaki atomic bomb. Two whole cities demolished in an instant, by the USA.

Thats not including the several hundred thousand people who died from the after effects (IE. Radiation poisoning, lack of food/water, lack of shelter, lack of proper medical aid)

I know it ended a war, but I don't think the means justified the ends.

In my opinion, and I may get flamed for this, it was a much worse act of terrorism. (the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion)

That doesn't change the fact that 9/11 WAS bad.

The average person doesn't piss me off when discussing this topic, it's the ignorant people who want revenge.
