And our cities are part of the cities

Destroyed by us..


B. Brecht



 I was 45  when 9/11 took place. Now I am 55.  It is  high time to forget the illusions and stop being disappointed on every step.  But  it really  hurts to see marauders. It hurts when Joe Scarborough  asks us all to 'thank  Obama and Bush for keeping us safe', as some sheep thanking  the shephedrs. It hurts to see the farce when Obama and Bush stand together  and  pretend to  be  united  or when Clinton  invokes the 300 Spartans talking about  Flight 93.  It hurts no matter what.   Lie cannot lead to the truth and if 9/11 was a tragic event it was also an event of unbelievable coverup and satanic danse macabre.   And it only started there. Now we reap the harvest:


1. Vincent Bugliosi, the best jurist  of the US had proven that Y2000 elections were stolen by Bush. Now  Joe Scarborough wants us to thank Bush.  Go figure.

2. Aftet 9/11 in two unlawful wars and currently in Lybia we, the US invaders had killed about 1 million people, destroyed the way of life  of tens of millions. tortured, maimed and  abused tens of thousands of people and killed tens of thousands of our  own. And we now celebrate.

3. Due to necessity of  the invasion of Iraq  the mission of Columbia  Shuttle  was not  a topic of a national emergency or asking for help from other nations. They died in fire.  All because  of Iraq. And now we celebrate.

4. During the decade following 9/11 not only we invoked  stupid and  uinlawful  'laws' like Patriot Act but we also  transformed the country to the pseudo-police state with enormous Homeland Security  which spends billions on  self- support.  And we celebrate it now.

5. Our economy collapsed under  the  pressure of wars, thievery and greed. We have no economy anymore. And we celebrate it now.

6. We had cultivated a clan of corrupt elite. After 9/11 NOT EVEN ONE government official was fired or demoted or even investigated. R. Clark, who stated unequivocally that the government failed, was shunned.  And we celebrate it now.

7.  Thousands of innocent people were put to jail under fabricated accusations of terrorism, many of them very young. We have a permanent concentration camp  in Gitmo now.  At the same time NO TRIAL was performed on the official 9/11 event because it was  procalimed an act of war. Evidence was destroyed and no criminal investigation was sought. And we celebrate this now.

8. The propaganda machine   had been mobilized to crush and ridicule any possible  opposition or strife  for truth.   Prominent Americans like Scott Ritter or Michael Moore were slandered multiple times.  Dark forces like 'Tea Party' are flourishing. Right- wing extremism is on the rise. And we celebrate that now.
