This one happens to be the Eleventh Anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon as well as a failed attack on the U.S Capitol. I started to attempt to write something profound, but I think that’s all be covered by better writers than I.
The TV is full of shows about 9/11, but I don’t know how much they are going to educate people who lived through the day. We all have our memories, some lost loved ones, others have since died themselves.
The attacks have been described as a declaration of war against the United States, but the truth is that the war was going on for years before the towers fell. Most of the American public just was oblivious to that fact and in the years since too many people have gone back to their blissful ignorance, however our enemies haven’t. They still have the same goal and it has nothing to do with Israel, Palestine, the Crusades, or any of the other BS you might read. We have lost sight of their goal, but they have not. Which is what they are counting on.
The events of the so called “Arab Spring” were part of that same war, although you’d be hard pressed to find anyone talking about it. It’s complex and Americans don’t seem to like complex subjects. Or at least it seems that way.
We’re eleven years into this phase of the war, the end is not in sight, and victory is not assured.
The last thing we can do is forget
