Explaining Osama and 9/11

My oldest son just graduated elemetary school and so my wife and I gave him an IPad as gift. He loves the thing. Unlike his gadget n geegaw loathing father, he takes to that stuff with a vengeance.

As an internet scouring curiosity-laden child, he's gotta be watched carefully. Sometimes he finds "acceptable" videos on YouTube that scare him, however. Today he saw for the first time the footage of the World Trade Center being hit by plane and collapsing on September 11th, 2001. I was on an errand when his mother called me and told me how upset he'd been, seeing the people jump hand in hand to their deaths. 

When I returned home, I explained to him what had happened. And why New York had been attacked and how it had affected our family directly (his uncle's boss was flown into the towers killing her). I explained to him that human beings were capable of incredible cold blooded cruelty but also kindness and love. He still wanted to know why Bin Laden had planned and executed the attacks and I replied that the motive may have been to force American troops off the holy Saudi soil or maybe that as a former CIA employee, he'd been stiffed for cash. We don't really know.

What I do figure, I explained to him, is that Bin Laden had a history of being part of suckering Western powers into unwinnable wars. By knocking down the World Trade Center, America would be dragged into a bloody morass like the Red Army was and we'd collapse like the USSR did. And then something hit me that I'd never thought of.

When Bin Laden was laying out this grand scheme of destruction, how come no one ever said anything like "well, it's true that the Americans are infidels, dude--but this retaliation of theirs that you're hoping for? That's gonna be thousands and thousands of our people that get snuffed in a war that really doesn't have to take place. Like, they may be imperialistic whatevers, man, but this provocation means lots of dead civilians, kids. That's not really a great idea--got anything else?"

Of course that never happened and not because of Islamofascism or whatever other completely human trait is laid on one group of people as opposed to all of them. It never seems to keep the Bin Laden's of the world up at night that they're responsible for death and carnage nor does anyone ever tell them that this isn't heroism or martyrdom but murder. 

So I explained this to my boy and he nodded by way of "OK, dad--cool". I dunno if it sank in but if I ever get word back that he walked away from a fight because he knew it never leads to anything but pain, that's a job well done.

 

Comments

I think your son would have been better served if you had simply stopped after saying, "We don't really know."

The reason we tragically still don't know more than a decade later is because we've never had the imperative independent, fully funded and fully empowered 9/11 investigation.

Such an independent investigation was rendered imperative when World Trade Center crime scene evidence was illegally removed and criminally destroyed. Evidence is never destroyed to protect the TRUTH and is almost always an indication of defacto guilt.

Immediate demands for such an independent 9/11 investigation were rendered imperative when government designated stooges were trotted out to publicly pontificate with the absurd "pancake theory of building collapse" despite not possessing the correct Stuctural Engineering credentials required to abide by the Engineer's Code of Ethics.

Most of us do know however that one can't walk through a closed door as fast as they can walk through an open door. And many of us consequently wonder how three skyscrapers (WTC North Tower, WTC South Tower, WTC Building7) could collapse through their paths of maximum resistance at near freefall speeds allegedly due to kerosene fires when no skyscraper before or since has collapsed despite many burning far longer and far hotter.

For those of you with the courage, I recommend exiled journalist, Christopher Bollyn's book, "Solving 9-11: The Deception That Changed the World" available free online here: http://bollyn.com/

I also recommend Eric Hufschmid's, "Painful Questions" available free online here: http://erichufschmid.net/PainfulQuestionsTOC.html

And please watch this YouTube video that I think is the most important thusfar in the history of the USA. Please don't be stupid enough to try to duplicate anything in it. Thermite is seriously dangerous stuff. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNOM_U5UM6Q

Please demand President Obama and the Congress establish the long-overdue independent, fully funded and fully empowered 9/11 investigation. I think that retired Army General Antonio Taguba and retired Navy Admiral William Fallon would make excellent co-chairs of such an imperative investigation.
TRUTH fears no question.

Because a Zionist cabal from UCSB was after you?

You said what needed to be said Neil. Thank you.
I offer additionally, my site http://www.CSI911.info
I am still at the scene of the Crime of 9/11.
When the American people know what you know Neil, they will be moved.
Please Mr Johnny Angel Wendell look deeper into the facts of the matter. Your comments to your Son are not supported by the facts of the matter.
And that matters to us all. It is the Gulf of Tonkin all over again.

Was one of the middle class from around the Mid East who went to fight, after the war already started. The Mujahadeen had already begun to fight the war.

Like in Vietnam an unpopular government asked a super power to come in and help defend it's unpopular government in the face of domestic unrest. The involvement of volunteers, of which Osama was one, was just part of the escalation.

What a bunch of idiotic loose change 9/11 for Dummies crap. The real questions surrounding 9/11 should be focused on the politically calculated intentional carelessness/willful ignorance that allowed the attack to place to begin with. The Gulf of Tonkin is an apt comparison in that we used the event to undertake an unnecessary war, not because of some preposterous assertion that the government was able to orchestrate a massive, perfectly executed, conspiracy.

The government couldn't even pull off having its tax collection entity search for words like "tea party" in connection with charitable organization classifications. Get real. It's the ongoing whackadoodle conspiracy blogging that hinders the efforts to uncover any useful information because the entire topic has been tainted by the tinfoil wearing.

You have questions; we have questions.
Let's have an independent, fully funded and fully empowered 9/11 investigation to get answers.
As certain as you are, it could confirm that you are correct.

And perhaps reveal the secret of the Bermuda Triangle?

It's all good.

Is still ongoing regarding the biggest engineering disaster ever. Cybesq is exactly right. Conspiracy loons with a massive misunderstanding of physical science, let alone human nature, deserve to be ignored, stewing in their own ignorance.
