September Eleven Discussion

Nine Eleven changed:

politics and emotions,
magazine essays and small talks,
military budgets and death toll stats.
Changed the level of angst and aggression.
Result: less multiculturalism, more hate.
Who will put an end to the clash of civilizations?
Nobel Prize for HIM.

As a tribute to September Eleven attack 10th anniversary
some friends of my photo pool created some textured versions
of my helicopter flight shot of the World Trade Center
BEFORE the attack …
texture: crows by JO, Norwich, England
twin towers

dear Ben, you wrote: “9/11 was used as an excuse to invade Iraq and brought the U.S. close to bankruptcy. Financially, because wars cost a lot of money.

In the contrary, the tensions are stronger than before …

“How can American’s say that they are the smart ones, the ones who see things with intelligence; when 97% of it’s population supports a war that has no positive outcomes except to bankrupt the U.S. financial system? The math is quite easy to see. You take $1.4 trillion dollars (the actual cost per year of U.S. war) and multiply that by 8. Yes, eight, as in EIGHT years of war and you get $11.2 trillion dollars already spent on something that was really a waste from the start. Admittingly, I have lost all interest and faith in politics because it was Obama who promised to end these two wars. Uh, he did not …”

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment as well as subscribing. I agree that no amount of bravery could completely reverse that horrible day or stop some of the things that happened in its aftermath but I believe it did help. Yes a plethora of violence and hate ensued but quietly in its shadow understanding and kindness has begun to take its place. People are beginning to see that if we let our fear completely dictate our actions we are no better than the extremist who decides to use airplanes and people as weapons. The only way I can accept this horror is to believe that perhaps this purpose was to eventually cause change for the better.

    frizz-reply: yes, there are different levels of reaction. We should not be fixed too long on the first level (=anger and the war against terrorism). Maybe we should make an end to military actions after the death of Osama Bin Laden.
