I wish we only had to memorialize the victims on 9 11 2001, but Bush used 9-11 to enrich his friends. More than 6000 U.S. soldiers have now died in the 2 wars, twice as many as the terrorists killed on 9-11. Countless civilians, and thousands of other soldiers have died since the Bush Administration invaded Iraq and Afghanistan..
It was a load of bullshit, meant to make the US become closer to a Police State, and to increase profits of the Oil Companies using the chaos the US caused in the Middle East. What did you expect from 2 Oil Men?
9-11 has been used to make money and reduce civil rights.
Bush/Cheney...both Oil men, both with many friends in corporate America who would make huge profits in the War Machine....Halliburton....Blackwater....Defense Industries...Bankers... Insurance Companies...they all made huge profits. Lies about Weapons of Mass Destruction........The 2 wars have now cost so much that it has bankrupted America, and along with allowing Bankers to do anything they want to make profits.
America ate it up. Rah rah Rah.
Fear did it.
