9-11 did not affect most people directly. They did not loose anyone or anything in the towers. The ones complaning about what the war is costing us in dollars and the lives of our people in the service are those people.
History repeats itself and these people need to read the history books.
YOU DO NOT KILL A SNAKE BY CUTTING OFF IT'S TAIL.
It is better to loose some people on foreign soil than to loose many on home soil.
And for those that think (They will not do that) Look at Hitler and the Jews.
If Hitler had won the war (If it had gone for another 6 months he may have) and he got done exteminating the Jews who would be next? The blacks? The orientals? Those who are not blue eyed blonds?
If you are not part of eliminating the problem, you are part of the problem.

So what's the lesson learned about WWII Germany?

There are many you should have learned by now. The Jewish learned, No they would never do that to me and 6,000,000 ended up in the ovens.

Besides all of the lives which were lost, there also was, and still is, a trickle down affect which has made quite an impact on all of us, namely, the U.S. economy.

Look at what it has done to insurance premiums alone.

about people forgetting....in all the internet boards people are still posting their silly questions about problems in THEIR little world.Bet if it was a relative or friend that they saw leaping to their death from the WTC towers they would feel a little different about this day.......

I was setting in my class room that day waiting for the bell to ring and start my classes when a fellow teacher came in and told my what happened. Of course I went to the nearest tv and watched like everyone else did. While we were watching an 8th grade girl anounced: "Why are we watching THAT? It isn't like it is here in our town. It won't bother us any".

Some of her fellow students were quick to "jump her cases" about the comment.

I fear that is the sentiment that too many folks have these days. "IT DOESN'T AFFECT ME DIRECTLY SO THEREFORE, IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER."

Oh really? Just sit back and watch!

Hey Dave,

I realize you're talking about 911 of course, but what
are you referring to when you talk about killing a
snake? What foreign soil are you talking about
Afghanistan? Iraq? Could you be a little clearer if you
don' t mind.

If a snake is coiled to strike you, Do you cut off it's tail or it's head.
Any country, any place, Or would you rather build bunkers around you're home and defend you're self there as best you can.
DON'T say it can't happen. Read the history books.
I remember Pearl Harbor.

Dave,
You can kill a snake by cutting off it's tail. You just cut the tail off about 2 inches behind the eyes.


Paula    Posted 09-11-2003 at 08:37:06       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Dave, which snake are you referring to?


Dave Smith    Posted 09-11-2003 at 08:41:16       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Hitler, Mousileni (sp), Sadam, Binney Din and the da**** liberals that want to give our freedoms away.
Dave <*)))><


Paula    Posted 09-11-2003 at 08:46:09       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Okay. So the connection between 911 and the whole
cutting off a snake's head thing is with regards to
Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan?

i don,t understand the difficulty in comprehending what he was saying.


Dave Smith    Posted 09-11-2003 at 11:58:39       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I think what we have here is a troll. Or maybe a person whose father or grandfather should have had to hit the beach at Normandy or Okinawa to defend freedom. Quite likely she would not be here.

Oh my goodness, why the hostility. I am not a troll. I am
asking you to clarify your position. You spoke with a
great deal of symbol and I was drawing certain
conclusions and wanted to make sure I was drawing
the right conclusions. I like clarity.

Specifically I was wondering if the poster was
connecting Iraq to the WTC terrorists who were mostly
Saudi Arabians. Why, because recently I read an
article that declared 70% of Americans polled were
certain that Iraqi terrorist flew planes into the world
trade center.

I have posted here for a little while now and don't
understand why plain questions would warrant such
hostility.

Paul, The problem is too many people are fat and happy As long as they are not directly affected, they will forget. I went to high school back in the early fiftys with two kids that were liberated from Hitlers death camps. You can sure as he!! bet they didn't and won't forget.

I lived with a JAP (Jewish American Princess) for 5 years in the early 80's who had 2 out of 4 Grandparents liberated...Still had the tatoos...She was a JDL supporter and had done 2 years in the Kibutzim in Israel...

I won't forget that one either...

And neither will my Daughter if I have anything to say about it...
