Everyone is saying something about the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and saying it better than me. I don't have much to add about the events of that day. The aftermath isn't really worth talking about either. The dullard in charge of the country on 9/11 gave some stirring speeches and then lied us into two different wars, one of which we just got out of.
Meanwhile, while we were told we were in a perpetual war on terror, it turns out that the real war is actually being waged against us. Now we are the terrorists. Nice reward for supporting W. and the GOP. They are in cahoots with the Left to replace us with cheap labor/consumers from third world shitholes and most of them are on board with labelling us the greatest danger to our own country.
We will never know the truth of what happened on September 11th, 2001. As always, anyone questioning the official narrative is labelled a "conspiracy theorist" and derided as a "9/11 Truther". Also as usual, there is a wide spectrum off doubt and questioning. The same is true for lots of events. If you suggest that 5,999,999 Jews died in the Holocaust instead of 6,000,000, you will be labelled a "Holocaust denier" and "anti-Semite" and like 9/11 you can't even ask questions without being cast out of polite society. Fortunately that has never concerned me.
Somewhere between the narrative we are told by the government/mass media and the most outlandish of "conspiracy theories" lies the truth.
At best this was a colossal fuck-up with multiple agencies dropping the ball leading to nearly 3000 deaths and billions in property damage.
At worst this was a massive conspiracy to get us into multiple wars and crush individual liberty with 3000 Americans used as pawns to accomplish a goal.
Did we know about the hijackers and just let them do their thing, along the lines of the most common theory about Pearl Harbor?
Or is a foreign entity that is never named responsible for plotting this?
Did the buildings, all three of them mind you, fall because two of them were hit by planes or did they have some help?
You get my point. The real concern political dissident should have when looking at 9/11 is seeing how the government and media, really the same thing, manipulate events and manipulate us in response to events. No matter what happens, whether they orchestrated it or not, everything works to their advantage.
As I said, we will never know the truth about 9/11 but we can see the truth behind the web of lies and deceit that followed and has led us to where we are. Who could have imagined just a year after the millennium changed that a single event on one day would so drastically change the course of the West for the worse?
