Is it foolish to believe that America is anywhere near perfect? That's an easy question to answer. Is it foolish to look upon world leaders as Gods instead of fallible human beings? That's a little tougher, but yes. And is it foolish to believe that America is not the global police force? Yes, it is. But America has always pushed to be the dominant superpower and world leaders, no big secret. I think that, in regard to totalarism, September 11th has made things such as George Orwell's 1984 and the various post apocalyptic futures a reality, whether we like it or not.
I see that you have put a lot of thought into your arguement here. I won't try to defend America from some of the claims you have made, but I will say that your claims of America killing the 5000 that died on September 11th as if they were flying the planes themselves, if you were to justify it, would mean that every person in the American intelligence agencies and all the military and law enforcement branches would have to have kept quiet by now. A likely scenario, you think? I've heard these claims before, by anti American protestors desperately trying to push their cause. I'm not saying you are like this, on the contrary some of your comments such as what you say about the gun laws is very good. But this is where I heard these comments before. And the threats of September 11 would have been told to military, law enforcement, intelligence agencies and possibly even the media, and I just can't see all those people betraying innocent lives live that.Originally posted by scheherazade
i for one am sure they knew about 9/11 (to be clear i think they get info on 10000's of terrorist threats, and so few materialize that i dont blame them for not reactingto the 9/11 possibility), and were HOPING it would happen, just because it gives them leeway to act, and makes people complacent to their actions.
