Terror Attack Upon U.S.A. - September 11th, 2001
Six years ago to the day we in America remember. We recall the day that America was attacked. We mourn the loss of those whose lives were taken by Osama Bin Laden, and his radical Muslim followers. We remember how we felt as we hopelessly watched each tower at the World Trade Center fall leaving only flames and dust - and broken bodies, and broken lives.
We remember those whose lives were taken in the attack upon the Pentagon, and those lost on Flight 93. We remember our sense of loss, and our rage, and our vow to support any means necessary to avenge this horrible act - to bring those responsible to justice - to make the world safe again from such madness. We remember.
Pearl Harbor Attack - December 7th, 1941
The attack upon America on that day in September of 2001 wasn't the first such attack. The British had attacked our young nation in 1812, and the Japanese had launched a sneak attack upon our Naval forces docked at Pearl Harbor in December of 1941. We remembered. We did not forget.
We had known the bitter realization of our state of ill prepare before 9-11. We had known the sense of loss, the anger, and the rage before. We had vowed before to bring justice and peace to the world - and to vanquish our enemies wherever we found them. We remembered.
Yet, despite the similarities the response to the 9-11 attack could not have been more different. After the attack upon Pearl Harbor in 1941 the United States declared war, and mobilized for total war. The entire nation went on a war footing, and millions of men, and women enrolled in the fight. Everyone sacrificed at some level to help defeat the Axis powers.
The same sense of unity which led the U.S. to total victory against its World War II enemies existed in the years following the 9-11 attack. However, after the liberation of Afghanistan from the Taliban it was clear there had been a lost opportunity to capture Osama Bin Laden. Bin Laden's head would not be served to the civilized world at the end of a rope, but instead he managed to flee into northern Pakistan.
We as a nation were told it was only a matter of time, that something would be worked out, and Osama and his gang of thugs would be captured, and killed.
But then the focus of the hunt morphed. Wedged between tax breaks for the rich, and the destruction of our civil rights began a full fledged campaign of lies, and deceit meant to convince the American people that a war against Iraq was needed.
Through the efforts of the Bush Administration the U.S. public were convinced that it was Saddam Hussein who should actually be the target of our ire. We were told that Osama Bin Laden was a non factor, and that an attack upon Iraq would liberate a people - that democracy would flourish, and that security in the Middle East would be imposed.
Now years later as the non stop sectarian violence in Iraq has loudly spoken we see how our invasion and occupation of Iraq has been one of the most horrible and destabilizing events ever put upon the peoples of the Middle East.
And what of justice for Osama Bin Laden? Six years later he is alive, and free - and he has paid no consequences for his terrible act.
Our so called leaders have betrayed us to the wicked men behind the scenes - those who shackle us into the servitude of Middle Eastern oil interest, and the corporate war profiteers.
While thousands lost their lives six years ago on that terrible day in 2001 it is we the survivors who have been victims to this nation's so called leaders - for they not only have allowed Osama Bin Laden to evade justice - and to mock us, and our sense of patriotism, but it is our corrupt leaders who lied to us, and betrayed us - leading us into a war based upon lies, and greed.
And in the end isn't that what the lesson is that we the common people of this nation are being taught by the likes of the upper class and their boys in Washington D.C. - that patriotism and nationalism no longer matter in the age of wealth earned not through labor but inheritance. Wealth earned through ownership in stock in multinational corporations which care not for America, but only for a quick buck.
In this age our leaders collude with the very people who finance hatred and violence against our nation and they do so openly. In this age we look back to what we once were and we remember - and we wait.
Osama Bin Laden - Alive & Well
Question: Why hasn't Osama Bin Laden been killed or captured six years after 9-11?
Answer: He's worth more to the Bush Administration alive than dead.
Adolf Hitler - Dead April 1945
If September 11th, 2001 was the equivalent to the December 7th, 1941 attack upon Pearl Harbor then Osama Bin Laden would have been dead by now.
By this time World War II was over. The United States went from a nation in the depths of an economic depression to the saving the world from the likes of Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo. America's enemies within four years fell from the status of regimes bent of world domination to the scrap heap of history.
Admiral Yamamoto - Killed April 1943
Comparisons between the Japanese sneak attack upon Pearl Harbor to the 9-11 terrorist attack upon the United States are inevitable. Some say that a war on terror isn't the same thing as a world war. Some say that there's no way to definitively win a war on terror, and perhaps that is so, but just looking at the failure to achieve the one goal - the capture of those responsible for the 9-11 attack - it is clear that a huge difference exist between the United States of old, and the current version led by the ever corrupt Bush administration.
Benito Mussolini - Hung April 1945
Instead of pressuring the Pakistani government to give up Osama Bin Laden the Bush administration has put the capture of this mass murderer on hold while it has concentrated its efforts on the occupation of Iraq. It is as if the capture of the individuals responsible for the mass murder of thousands of American citizens was secondary to the take over of a nation which presented no real threat the the U.S. - a nation which we had already contained.
One must examine, and question the motivations of those involved in deceiving the American public, and America's Allies into invading, and occupying Iraq - instead of dealing honestly with those actually responsible for waging war upon America.

War on Terror - Too Lucrative To Win
It is quite clear that Osama Bin Laden is simply too valuable to the Bush Administration as a boogy man to ever be killed, or captured. Leaving Osama Bin Laden alive, and trotting him out from time to time as a means of creating distress in the populace helped elect George W. Bush in 2004. Bin Laden has become a tool successfully manipulated by Dick Cheney, and his underling, George Bush to remind the public that the nation must always be frightened of every shadow.
Only in this way can attention be shifted away from the domestic agenda. Only this way can the people's efforts be misdirected from addressing long ignored social issues, and it's corrupt and broken political system. Only in this way can huge amounts of U.S. tax dollars be plundered and funneled into the coffers of the war profiteers.
Osama Bin Laden is George W. Bush's Tool.
