911. .. your America, 9/11 is nothing in comparison to the 200,000+ innocent people who have died due to your terrorist campaigns in the middle east.

Really Funnyjunk? This post is about remembering the police and firefighters that died trying to save people on that day. The comments have devolved into a flamewar over foreign policy. Neither the people trapped in those towers or the people going up had anything to do with that. Save your vindictive american basing crap for another time.

I was in New York 4 days before. I was 3-4 at the time. I told my dad I didn't want to go in there. It must of been a sign. Because 4 days later I was with my dad because he had to watch my cousins and then it appeared on TV about it. Lets honor the brave souls who gave their lives trying to save those people.

Is it even worth pointing out that Japanese people don't constantly post memorials about Hiroshima and Nagasaki - 246000+ killed and many more left with radiation poisoning and other developing cancer later in life. You also don't get any memorials for the 1150000+ deaths from the Oil Wars... 9/11 was a tragedy, but in the grand scheme of things it's but a drop in the bucket. If anything, it's more disrespectufl to them than respecuful; do you really think OP posted this to honour the dead? Or is it much more likely that OP, like a conniving douche, saw that 9/11 posts get thumbs and so uploaded his own?
User avatar #143 to #133 - rhinoplasty (06/11/2012) [-]
with the amount of feel posts on todays front page i have a feeling that alot of these douchebags are profiting from the dead
#145 to #133 - anon (06/11/2012) [-]
That's apples and oranges kid. People die all the time in war. It's sad, but unremarkable. 9/11 was a peacetime attack that destroyed thousands of people as well as some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world. It's obviously going to be a bigger deal.

Anyway, the **** Japan did in WW2 lost them all license to be a victim. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are peanuts compared to the atrocities they commit in China.
User avatar #150 to #145 - akhilleus (06/11/2012) [-]
And the civilians of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the ones committing the atrocities? Collective guilt's a retarded concept - by that logic you're responsible for the deaths of civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan...
#177 to #133 - anon (06/11/2012) [-]
Actually, Japan has applied to make the sites international memorials multiple times. They get rejected because they're not victims, they were evil bastards that got their asses kicked.
User avatar #191 to #177 - akhilleus (06/11/2012) [-]
How the **** can you generalise every single Japanese person as an "evil bastard?" That type of blatant jingoism is ******* retarded. The only sins of the civilians killed in Nagasaki and Hiroshima was to have been born Japanese and to have lived there. Sure, Japan comitted a lot of atrocities, but blame that on the military commanders and the government of the country at the time. The citizens and civilians of a nation are scarecely to be blamed for the sins of its leaders, especially when the leaders were there undemocratically, and used political murders and extrajudicial executions in order to maintain power...

I see what you're saying, but 9/11 started a war, Hiroshima ended one.
P.s. The Jap's knew that they could have prevented the bombings, they just chose to not to. 9/11 was an attack that the United Stated had no control over. Plus the U.S. has both apologized on numerous occasions and has paid both money and man hours to try to make things better.

I still understand what you're trying to say though.

I also think that this is honoring the heroism of the N.Y. Fire Department. Nothing wrong with that.
User avatar #190 to #147 - garymuthafuknoak ONLINE (06/11/2012) [-]
there was way more options of ending the war without that much civilian damage. Just think of it as, you're gov't is being stupid, and then you get nuked the **** out of and you had nothing to do about it.
User avatar #204 to #190 - unncommon (06/11/2012) [-]
Your* and there's a terminology called 'Acceptable Losses'. It means that one thing is sacrificed for the greater good. The war could have went on, could have killed more and more people, ruining more and more lives, but they seen a way out. It might not be clear to you, but I'll give you an analogy: It'd be like two guys fighting to the death, they're both battered and weak, one man cuts the others foot off so he can't fight, the man continues swinging his blade at the other. So the man cuts one of his hands off. The man can still fight, but they've accepted that if the fight goes on, they'll both die.
User avatar #216 to #204 - garymuthafuknoak ONLINE (06/11/2012) [-]
Well Japan was crippling already. With the countless amount of B-29 bombings, America would have had things wrapped up in days. Japan literally had little to no military left.
User avatar #219 to #216 - unncommon (06/11/2012) [-]
That's where you're misinformed friend. Many people died on either side, too many people, and Japan wasn't going to let go of that so easily. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a last resort. Even before they bombed Nagasaki the Americans begged the Japanese to surrender. They Bombed Hiroshima and begged once more, then threatened to bomb Tokyo. The Japs finally gave up.

Trust me when I say that it was necessary. I have family that died in the bombing of Nagasaki.
User avatar #226 to #219 - garymuthafuknoak ONLINE (06/11/2012) [-]
Actually, more bombings were planned. America had 7 nukes ready and was ready to take out the Japanese race. Someone in the military stepped up and stopped them at two. Japan was also ready to surrender before the Nukes. Look this up, it's probably what they never taught you in schools.
User avatar #231 to #226 - unncommon (06/11/2012) [-]
Well I take back the last part, but Japan didn't surrender until after Hiroshima, the Americans just didn't get it until it was to late. And back to that analogy, the Japanese were planning to do the same to the United States. What about all of their bombings, sinking of ships, and countless other tragedies towards the U.S. (i.e. Pearl Harbor).
User avatar #236 to #231 - garymuthafuknoak ONLINE (06/11/2012) [-]
That's just one occasion. If America did that to them, it would be heroic, if you do it to America, it's a war crime.
User avatar #241 to #236 - unncommon (06/11/2012) [-]
Well considering that Pearl Harbor was the start of the war and that no prior conflicts are recorded. There was more occasions also, maybe you should research them.
User avatar #254 to #241 - akhilleus (06/11/2012) [-]
Actually, America kind of forced Japan into war. While not necessarily forcing them to commit atrocities and Pearl Harbour, the US did use huge amount of sanctions of oil and a boycott of any Japanese goods, ensuring that the Japanese economy suffered greatly and increasing popularity for the incredibly militaristic and nationalistic factions within the government. Imagine today if the EU, OPEC and Canada stopped exporting oil to America and began to boycott American goods - you're kiiding yourself if you don't think America would go to war. War already looms with Iran due to its threats to block the Straits of Hormuz, and that's just a drop in the bucket compared to the fact that almost all of Japans oil was provided by the US...
User avatar #273 to #254 - unncommon (06/11/2012) [-]
If they were to stop exporting other countries it would be ignorant, they'd loose money and hurt themselves. But if that were to happen we would simply start drilling our own oil (which I'd hate to say it, but Obama is right on that part). Japans hand wasn't forced to do anything. They over reacted and started a war because of it.
User avatar #375 to #273 - akhilleus (06/11/2012) [-]
While the US does have oil, Japan is a largely resourceless island, and doesn't have a source of oil, meaning that it would be further pressured. Besides, how is it ignorant for other countries to stop exporting to the US, yet the US stopping exporting to Japan wasn't? Destroying a nation's economy is a far better reason for it to go to war than for the reasons the US gave for invading Iraq and Afghanistan...
User avatar #387 to #375 - unncommon (06/11/2012) [-]
The US stopped exporting to Japan because it stopped drilling. We found it to be easier to import oils rather than to attempt to make a profit off of it (it's also dangerous, i.e. the exon oil spill). Japan could have found someone else to have purchased the oil from.
User avatar #415 to #387 - akhilleus (06/11/2012) [-]
At the time 80% of Japan's oil came from the US - it's impossible for a Nation to completely overhaul its economy overnight, it takes several years at least....

Just because only a few people died relative to other attacks doesn't minimize their importance. The 9/11 attacks have still had an absolutely incredible impact on the direction of America in the last decade

User avatar #227 to #218 - jrondeau **User deleted account** (06/11/2012) [-]
I never said they weren't important. I just stated that akhilleus shouldn't assume that the death toll is the most important aspect of a tragedy. But yes, people do need to move on from the tragedy (probably not to racism though, as that's something you really can't kill), as dwelling on it really brings nothing good nowadays.

I remember sitting in my fourth grade class when the planes hit. My teacher got a phone call then she looked at all of us and said that one of the Twin Towers had been hit by a plane. She told us that if we were picked up from school that it probably meant that someone we knew was dead. I remembered my Dad talking the night before about how he was shooting a T.V. show near the World Trade Center the night before. It was probably an hour after the second World Trade Tower was hit did my mom come in to pick me up. It was on of the most paralyzing moments of my life. I just kept thinking that my dad was dead and I nearly broke down in class.
He wasn't dead, thank God. He was safe but even so my mother wanted the family to be together. The ground was littered with ash, metal and burned bits of paper, all of which we collected and saved. I didn't live that close to the Towers, I live in Brooklyn and it amazed me that so much rubble found it's way over the water and into my yard. I could look up and see the bright blue sky choked with smoke.
Every time I think about that day, my number one thought was how could a teacher say that to a bunch of 8-9 year olds? That if a family member picked them up then that meant another was dead?
To this day the thought still scares me, what if she had been right?

User avatar #343 to #324 - ButtonFly ONLINE (06/11/2012) [-]
I have, but like many other things I've experienced I still look back on them from time to time and remember it. It brings me comfort, whether it be a beloved family pet who was brutally killed or a tragedy that effected thousands upon millions of people, I still think about it because those are events in my life that are important to me, no matter how far they are in the past. I believe I'm allowed that much.

Hey, fellow new yorker from brooklyn here, I know how you feel. I was just in kindergarden, I remember being able to look out the classroom window and just seeing smoke in the void where the towers used to occupy. My teacher was in a panic. My parents picked me up and I remember seeing burning papers in the sky. When I got home my parents had their eyes glued to the tv set. So sad.
User avatar #359 to #284 - ButtonFly ONLINE (06/11/2012) [-]
Yeah, it was a weird feeling, especially because the morning had been so bright and sunny.
I can't imagine what it was like for you being five or so. I'm sure it was a little more confusing but just as much as a shock.
User avatar #603 to #359 - outerspacebar (06/19/2012) [-]
I was 5 when it happened. Never forget. I was in school and I could see the smoke billowing outside the classroom windows. The teachers were in uproar and panic. My parents came to pick me up early. I remember looking out the window of the minivan and seeing papers and ash fluttering in the air and landing on the pavement. When I got home my parents were mesmerized by the television. If I recall correctly my mother was crying. Seriously thought these 9/11 jokes are ****** up. I was born and raised in New York. I knew people who lost their lives in the attack and I really cannot understand how people can be so hearless as to make jokes about the attack. Never forget 9/11/2001.

had America not nuked them, a good portion of the world could be speaking Japanese right now. Even if America had won without using nukes the deaths may have been higher then they were. The bottom line is, it wasn't an unprovoked killing. They started a war and America finished it using the quickest way means they had.
