9 1 1

The more I think about it... Sorry folks to bother you...
Anyhow, issues.
1. Why on September 13, 2002 did we have DefCon 2? What could be almost as dangerous as a pre-nuclear war condition (that might cause DefCon 1)? Why did we have it first time since 9/11 of last year?
2. Association from chess. When one opponent has a better position and a clean plan ahead, there's not really much other opponent can do, besides mutit' vodu ("make water muddy" == try to confuse the opponent). Changed status-quo might confuse opponent to a point where he'll start making mistakes or choose moves that are beneficial to you. You run a chance to loose fast, but situation was shaky anyway. I've used this tactics (often successfully) alot...explanation follows...
So, it is obvious to me, that either Bush, or some other powerful group knew about 9 11 preparations. I have some links below for interested folks... The more I think about it, the less likely it seems that Bush was capable (or even needed) cataclysm like that. After all, he had "a better position". But since operation was so complex, it is very likely that it was either planned, or "missed" by high ranked oficials. Now, getting back to issues 1 and 2, someone obviously makes water muddy here...
This mysterious revolutionary "Bin Laden", that tricked military and intelligence all over the world, if he is still alive, probably hiding under close supervision of DIA... :roll: what's a code-name for al-Jazera network again?
Apparently, world doesn't want US to attack Iraq. The more I think about it, the more I start believeing that Bush doesn't want it either, he is just forced to play the card (issue 2?). If Bin Laden is so guilty, why not to present evidence to the world? Because it will spook Al Quaeda? Why, they will run hiding? :roll: There is NO EVIDENCE. Without it, Europe obviously doesn't want a war in its backyard. Prove me wrong.

Could DEFCON 2 just be everybody needs to be on their guard really serious? I don't think GWB going to launch a nuclear strike against men with pointy beards driving a truck bomb.
As far as world being against US hitting Iraq. I hear that Putin might change his mind if we grease his palm. So instead of taxpayer like you facing 80 Billion, it's 100 Billion. Just the price of doing your friends a favor.

He's neither my friend nor yours. Here's a speech of a possible democratic candidate on 9/11/2002 for ya... I am not against kicking butt, it's just all this is BS. I WANT EVIDENCE, and unless some old bush produces any, noone in the world will believe it. These boys studies Soviet Union too much, they now use same old commy tricks...
these army boys are all good, haha. :roll: tell this to second graders. so much sh1t hits the fan up there you don't want to know. better off ignoring it and keep plugging on, just like Jason likes it... me a little tired and cranky, pardon

Proof of what? That he develops weapons? So do India, Pakistan, China, North Korea. Why don't we attack them? what the flunk is wrong with you people, stop watching f@#%ing CNN, save your brains for meaningful things! Did you read LaRouche, Jr. article, what d'ya say?
I hate putting dent into people's belief systems...I want to see a SINGLE PROOF, that Bin Laden, Al Quaeda, or whatever the heck their name is, was directly involved into 9 1 1. A SINGLE PROOF. Please. Don't give me "how to fly Boeing" manuals. Nor color pictures of 20-some arabs that majically appeared on 9/12, as if pulled from a dusty file. A real proof. No less, no more. And then go bomb them, with my complete support. I've had enough of this BS in USSR. Come on people, help me out here...

OK, ok, calm down. I think I am onto something...So, "terrorists" attack US... we, as wounded beast retaliate, hammering Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudis...Who's the winner? Who's that lucky state that will be a direct beneficial of mass massacre in Middle East?

Another way to look at this is:
Where are the 9.11 victims from?
I heard on 9/11, all the israli employees were coincidently absent from the twin tower. There ought to be some explaination to this.

Are their own words enough for you? Of course I suppose insane conspiracy theories are easier to believe if you are so predisposed. I'm sure you can come up with some other logical reason Al-Qaeda had intimate knowledge of the events, and intimate knowledge of the hijackers. I suppose you can come up with some other reason for known Al Qaeda operatives telling a reporter how they (al-Qaeda) planned the operation.
While I'm sure you would like to see whatever classified evidence our intelligence agencies may have in order that you may feel satisfied, somehow I don't think you're going to be allowed to see this. However the words of al-Qaeda themselves should be enough for you, although I'm suppose you might dismiss these reports as some great conspiracy as well. I guess it's more convenient to believe in fairy tales sometimes though.

Yes, the explanation is that this was an unfounded and false rumor. Some people will believe anything.

If you were really seeking the truth then you would have had no trouble finding that many Israelis died in the attack.

By the way, I heard a rumor that you couldn't find a cab downtown before the attack because all the Russians and Arab cab drivers were warned by Al Queda before the attack.

Shura, what exactly do you want as proof? We have videotapes of Osama bin Laden and his associates planning the attack. We have Al Queda's Chief logistical planner, Ramzi Binalshibh, admitting that he was the chief planner for the attack. So what exactly is the "proof" that you require? Or is proof irrelevant and all you want is to denounce America?

But I remember that, on 9/11/01, CNN reported several Israelis nationals were arrested for mysterious behavior - they were caught taking pictures and laughing in a building near the twin tower.

I didn't mention anything about Islam. I said there were no Arab countries on the list. Lebanon is an exception but Lebanon has a large Christian population. That might explain it. But no Saudis... no Egyptians... no Pakistanis... no Yemenis. In fact, go through the list of where the terrorists were from and you won't find a single person from their countries. Very curious, don't you think? I wonder if they were warned to stay home that day. What do you think "Truth Seeker"?

At www.snopes.com, there is currently a list of 9/11 rumors rated true, false, etc., with links to further information. The link is titled "rumors of war" and is near the bottom of the page. Both the 4000 Israelis and taxicab rumors are there, rated false.

The Snopes link on the 4000 Israelis rumor points to a Slate article http://slate.msn.com/?id=116813 which mentions the five Israelies on a roof rumor, which they were unable to verify.

I heard the same rumor about people laughing and taking pictures, only I heard they were Arabs. Can't remember the country, doesn't matter.
The undisputed facts are "Truth Seeker" (yeah, right) that proof of al-Qaeda's responsibility for the murders are well known by this time. There is by now much evidence which has shown this, they have stated as much, and now we have one of the admitted masterminds behind the operation in custody, only a few short days after he dared the West to try and find him.
I'm sorry these facts destroy how you and others like you wish things had happened, but that's just the way it is.
While it is strictly an opinion piece, you might find this article, written by Saudi journalist Rasheed Abou-Alsamh for ArabNews, of interest.
First, we must stop denying that any of the hijackers were Saudis or even Arab. We must also stop saying that the Sept. 11 attacks were a CIA-Zionist plot to make the Arabs and Islam look bad. This is utter nonsense! We must be mature and responsible enough to admit that these sick minds that hatched and perpetrated these dastardly attacks were, sadly, a product of a twisted viewpoint of our society and religion. We must ask what went wrong and how we can change our society and education system so that this won�t ever happen again. Blaming others for our shortcomings as a society won�t get us anywhere, and will only serve to alienate us further from the rest of the world.
Second, we must stop the hatred being taught to our children in schools. Why are they being taught to hate non-Muslims? Is this a reasonable way to bring up future citizens of the world?

Maybe some of the above applies to you as well, "Truth Seeker"?

I don't think most of us are surprised by "seeking Truth" and his ilk these days. But less you think his is an isolated view, here is a recent opinion poll of Egyptians conducted by an Egyptian news paper.

They deserved it: 52%
Sympathy for the victims: 35%
Afraid of the future: 24%
Admiration for the culprits: 28%
Anger at the culprits: 10%
QUESTION 2: Who do you think is responsible for the attacks?
Israeli intelligence/Mossad: 39%
We'll never know: 25%
Al-Qa'eda or other Islamic militants: 19%
Others: 19%
QUESTION 3: How do you view the American war on terror?
A means of asserting the US's global dominance: 68%
A war against Arabs and Muslims: 51%
A justified response to the attacks: 15%
QUESTION 4: How do you view the results of the American war on terror?
Descent into chaos and increasing violence: 93%
The end of democracy and human rights: 48%
Success in eradicating terrorism and a more peaceful world: 1%
QUESTION 5: How do you view the future of radical Islamists?
Their popularity will increase: 51%
They are becoming weak and isolated: 31%
11 September was their death blow: 11%
QUESTION 6: What do you feel should have been Arab and Islamic governments' position on the US war on terror?
Oppose: 63%
Support: 10%
Remain neutral: 22%

How about this:

Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien said this, quote, "I do think the Western world is getting too rich in relation to the poor world. And we're looked at as being arrogant, self-satisfying, greedy, and with no limits. And September 11 is an occasion for me to realize it even more," unquote.
Prime minister says he's not blaming the USA for the 9/11 attacks, but others are outraged.

But its an Islam thing, no arab thing. Al Quaeda understands itself as a pan-islamic organization. There are arabs which aren't muslims (there are arab christs or arab jews). There were turkish members in the Hamburg terror cell under Mohamed Atta. Are pashtunes arabs (I don't think so)?

I heard a rumor that many Muslim-Americans were shocked and saddened by the attack like all the rest of their fellow Americans. Actually, I can verify this rumor since I spent the following week with some.

How come does this stereotype races? Tom didn't say that all Russians and Arabs are cab drivers in downtown NY!
It would be more accurate to say "let's not stereotype NY downtown's cab drivers".

hmmm...

First of all, in my mind, there is no doubt that Osama bin Laden was behind the 9/11 attack. At the same time, I do not think it is so wrong to question who was behind this. There is evidence that suggests that there is something we are not considering. I just believe the evidence for is more than the evidence against, but I am willing to listen to both sides.
But commenting on that statement:
I do not see anything wrong with that statement at all. Anyone who is outraged with that statement has problems.
In no way does that statement blame the USA for the 9/11 attacks, but it does address a very important point. It addresses the main cause (not blame, but cause) of such an attack. Now we can argue for hours about whether or not America is to blame for the image it has in much of the world, but the fact is that much of the world does feel this way about America. So much in fact, that I think it is quite arrogant of America to dismiss this as, "The rest of the world is wrong, we are right, they can go to hell."
There is much more than that, and America needs to start looking at itself to see why so many people are unhappy (to say the least) with America.

I agree 100% with you Anthony. I am not american but I am from south america, and I think we've grown "covered" from american culture and american feelings, and the way their society behaves. Now that I am away from this continent (I'd say really away) I think I've only seen one point of view during my whole live and never realized that there are a lot of people out there that hate america so much. They have their reasons and I think it is impossible to modify their point of view about america. I remember watching TV news and they showed a news paper conmemorating the attacks with a headline : "september 11th, a punishment from god"... that was shocking..

Cause? I don't think so. The cause is a bunch of extremists warped view of the world. Much like Charles Manson they are evil. There is no justifiable cause or reason. There are many people in the world that don't like what someone or some country does but do not kill people. To try to find cause or reason is giving them legitimacy. They have none. They are killers pure and simple.
I read an article today that says a woman in Nigeria will be stoned to death for having a baby outside of marriage. If you want to look for causes, look no further than rules like this.
