Thoughts on 9/11
So, tomorrow is the anniversary of 9/11.
I’ll be honest, as I always have, and tell you, American flags do not dance in my head when I think of 9/11. Nor do I become Flush with Rage or Salivate for Vengeance.
The Truth is-
I don’t live in New York, and I don’t know any of the dead from that terrible day.
I know, I’m a selfish bastard, but at least I’m an honest Selfish Bastard.
At least I’m not Milking Tragedy to Feign Moral Superiority or to Draw Attention to Myself in a Münchhausen by Proxy kind of way.
I will say, I do believe 9/11 was a Tragedy, but not because the Twin Towers came Tumbling Down, but because of what Followed.
Nine Years Later Our military remains in both Afghanistan, and Iraq as a Result of 9/11.
Or should I say-
Our military remains in both Afghanistan, and Iraq as a Result of the way 9/11 was exploited by the Bush Administration.
Sure, Asshole Wingnuts will say there’s no Proof that Chimpy Used 9/11 as an Excuse to Invade Iraq, but No One Takes Those Supercilious Cunts Seriously Anymore.
In fact, after Enduring 8 Years of that Menace known as Chimpy Mc Stagger, I’m Inclined to Draw my Glock from my Shoulder Holster, and Peel a Mother Fucker’s Cap Back.
As I write this sentence, young American Men, and Women continue to Fight, and Die thousands of miles from home.
That is the Real Tragedy.
In 50 years, what will we say-
Well, son, They Fought So We Could Be Free.
Surely no one still believes that Horseshit?
I know there’s a fine line between Questioning these Wars, and Discrediting the Sacrifice of our Military, but the questions must never stop.
If for no other reason, so that our Military will never be used in such a Careless, and Arrogant way Ever Again.
You see, apparently we didn’t learn from Viet Nam.
Nine years, and Counting.
Thousands of Americans dead.
God knows how Many of Iraqis, and Afghans.
Trillions of Dollars Spent.
So a Man who Spent His Entire Life Steeped in Inadequacy could Act Upon His Paranoid Delusion that He Was Chosen by God to Save the Human Race?
Think about that for a Minute-
The Mother Fucker Believes God Chose Him to Be President so He Could Wage War Against “Gog and Magog?”
He is a Disgraceful, and Despicable Human Being.
And he is the Legacy of 9/11.
George W. Bush is why thousands of People Died.
Sure, you can Blame Democrats, but they were merely Debris Caught up in the Perfect Storm.
A Disgraced Son Yearning for Redemption, and a Murder of Crows surrounding Him Hellbent on Creating Utopia-
By Any Means Necessary.
It was Inevitable, and Now all Those “Brave Soldiers” are Mostly Forgotten by the Men Who Took Advantage, and Shamelessly Exploited Their Sacrifice when Doing So Still Captured Headlines.
Yes, we’ll Hear from Them Again.
They say how “Proud” they are, and Claim “We Did the Right Thing,” and Cheney will More Than Likely once again refer to those who Oppose the Wars as “Commies,” or “Traitors,” or “Know Nothings.”
Anything to postpone his Growing Irrelevance for One More Day.
And after we Voice Our Outrage at their Hypocrisy, and their Cowardice, and the Sun Sets on another 9/11-
Only the Troops Remain.
Only they Remain Bound to the Decision Made what seems like a Life Time Ago.
Only they Continue to Live, and Die in a War Zone.
Cheney will Retire to His Ranch waiting for his soon to be Granted Permanent Deferment.
Bush will do as he always Has.
He’ll Remain Oblivious Convinced the World Will One Day Revel in His Greatness.
They said We Would Never be the Same After Viet Nam-
They Were Wrong.
