September 11th, the day the world changed forever

I have heard a lot of crap about the events of September 11, 2001. Everyone seems content to quake with fear at the prospect of an "international Disaster" like the events that took place on September 11 happening again.

  • The total death toll for the events of September 11 is 3,212.

    Is this a significant loss of life? To my recollection there have been greater losses of life in floods, earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis. Why then, did they kick up such a fuss about this miniscule loss of life? America have caused even greater deaths in the past.

    eg.
  • There were 58,226 American deaths in the Vietnam War.
  • There were over 1.5 million Vietnamese deaths in the same war.
    Oh yeah, and let's not forget Australia;
  • Out of the 47,000 troops sent over to fight along with the American soldiers, 500 died.

    Casualties of War - Putting American Casualties in Perspective
    by Geoff Price November 3, 2003


    Therefore, I am confused as to why the Americans continue to kick up such a great fuss when they have been the invaders before and killed many more people than those that were killed on September 11.

    Furthermore, they have pushed themselves into a war against "terrorism". A war that is bound to continue for the rest of eternity, if they truly are killing "terrorists". America is the true terrorist nation, they strike fear into the hearts and lives of many more innocent people than a singular attack on the world trade center did.

    Time for criticism and comments...

    A thousand-odd word comment, lost because of MOTHERFUCKING INTERNET EXPLORER.

    Bill Gates, I hope a crocodile inflicts the same tortures upon you as Papillon planned to inflict upon his chief prosecutor.

    Yoooou son of a bitch, I agree. After all, what is more stupid ideal than having the right to disarm countries while at the same time building up their own weapon caches. Ooh noone can have WMD's but we're allowed to have 6,800 active one thanks :P

    Yeah, if America were to put an attack up against another nation that was supposedly a friendly nation and started ww3 they would have a head start on everyone else... in terms of mass fire power.

    Only 13% of Americans obtain a passport during their lifetime. They don't know there is world outside there own, unless CNN mentions it.

    But they still can't locate the countries that CNN talk about.

    Australians don’t know any better.

    Back in the dim dark days when I was a Year 8, some of my fellows could not say whether Paris was a city or a country. Let alone locate it on a globe.
