More than three thousand people die every day in the US alone. They were all afraid, all in pain. I just fail to see how this is any different than a normal day where hundreds of thousands of people die. I'm sorry to whoever it may offend, but it was just a normal day for me. Their deaths are no more or less important or significant than any other death any other day of the year through any other means.

You know, in my opinion, we messed up in the aftermath of 9/11. The world trade center should have been re-built from original blueprints immediately. No expense should have been spared to rebuild the towers, exactly as they were, within a year. Just to show them, we'll ALWAYS get back up.

Why are you people so against loving your country? I love the USA. It's not the best country, it's not the worst (Somalia). I was born and raised here. This is my home. These are my people. I will call myself a patriot, and though I don't agree with how this country is being run, I love it. There are good people all around the world. Good people died on those planes. There isn't anything wrong with loving your country.

My friend, from far far away wrote me this once.
"Hello, my dear friend.
I know it's pretty rough there where you live, but the people from America, invaded us again with a new wave of troops. They are coming in daily, and by now they killed a lot of my friends and family. We still are not showing any resistance, because their warfare technology is superior to ours.

I'll write you anytime soon, if I make it alive.
I wish you much of luck and may you live happily.
Your friend Eytukan, from Pandora"

You wanna know why I dislike/don't agree with American patriotism (mainly)?
Because whenever something like 9/11 happens, the American medias say "3000 AMERICANS died" instead of "people", making it seem like Americans are 80123^32 times more important then everyone else.
User avatar #293 to #256 - robotgoose (09/12/2012) [-]
To clarify, this happens in Sweden as well, when there has been an earthquake or such somewhere, it may sound a little like: "100 people lost their lives today in an earthquake in Thailand. According to the ministry for foreign affairs, 5 Swedes are in Thailand right now but they appear to be safe".

What I mean by this is that yeah, it kinda happens in Sweden as well, but not to that extent.
I feel as if terrorist attacks happen in the US, 100 US citizens die and 50 other, the president or another important person mainly says something like "100 Americans lost their lives this day".
Badly explained, but I hope you understood.

The worst part of it is that it was not only Americans that died in that cowardly attack. One of my countrymen had a friend that was killed in the towers. She is a musician here in Japan. In honor of her friend's death, she wrote the song "Dogwood". The musician's name is Hitoto Yo.

This is just one small example of the many non-Americans lost that day.

Yeah, I know, sorry about that.
I've been kinda brainwashed since most well, Americans (inhabitants of the US) refer to the US as America.
But for some people, I actually think it is just like the way you said, the rest of the Americas doesn't matter so you just called the US ""America".

I'll be honest before a couple of hours ago I was sick of 9/11 as well... but I just watched the videos of it for the first time on the history channel it's really traumatic. People had to choose between burning to death or jumping from 80+ stories up. Can you imagine doing that yourself?

It's sad, but something of that magnitude has happened to nearly every country at some point, yet Americans on this website act as though it's the worst thing since Hitler
User avatar #83 to #65 - keiishiyama (09/12/2012) [-]
No **** . You do realize that, since 1941 and until 2001, we've never been attacked on our own soil? We'd grown used to knowing that the borders of America were the borders of absolute safety. I'm not saying it's the worst thing since the Holocaust and World War II, but it's certainly one of the worst terrorist attacks in history, and definitely the worst thing to happen to America since Pear Harbor.
User avatar #98 to #83 - lordmoldywart (09/12/2012) [-]
It's nowhere near one of the worst terrorist attacks in history, you realise terrorist attacks covers nearly every act of genocide in history? Terrorists aren't just arabs with tea towels wrapped around their head, they can be anyone
User avatar #177 to #98 - ilovehitler (09/12/2012) [-]
To a lot of Americans, we do see it as one of the worst. It's one of the few most of us know about.
I'm not trying to insult America, but as a whole we aren't smart, and don't like thinking about wars in other countries. Then those same attacks come to us for the first time in our recent history, so it's pretty big to a lot of Americans. It's just more...real. And what do humans do when finally confronted by reality? They find strength in numbers, in this case it would be them getting the overly patriotic thing.

I'm not saying that it's anywhere near the worst terrorist act, far from it, but it's the most real for a lot of Americans.
User avatar #102 to #98 - keiishiyama (09/12/2012) [-]
Why the **** are you trying to de-value the tragedy of 3,000 people by saying there have been far worse? Do you know how much of an asshole that makes you look?

I don't know who the **** educated you, but innocent deaths are innocent deaths, and one innocent death is just as bad as three thousand, or indeed, six-to-eleven million.
User avatar #109 to #102 - lordmoldywart (09/12/2012) [-]
You really are a dumb little cretin aren't you, you're what people have been talking about.

One innocent death is not as bad as 3000 or 6-11 million, are you really that ******* retarded? Is the social side of your brain imploding on itself? Because you have no idea how much of an idiot you sound like, people like you are the worst kind of people

You actually think 1 death is as bad as 3000? ******* . Idiot.
User avatar #112 to #109 - keiishiyama (09/12/2012) [-]
Innocent people die for no reason. Numbers don't mean **** compared to the reason behind it.

Hitler ordered some 11 million people to death because they were different. al-Qaeda killed 3,000 people "unintentionally" while they tried to attack the American government.

How the **** is it any different? All 11,003,000 people were killed because of no logical reason at all. I fail to see how one death is worse than three thousand as a result.
User avatar #117 to #112 - lordmoldywart (09/12/2012) [-]
You're actually trying to explain how 9/11 was as bad as the holocaust? The reason behind it may be bad, but I know if given the choice between 3000 and 11million deaths, I'd choose 3000 BECAUSE LESS PEOPLE DIE

I don't think you understand exactly what you're saying here
User avatar #120 to #117 - keiishiyama (09/12/2012) [-]
If I ever had to choose, and I can thank God knowing I won't, I'd choose 3,000 as well. But does that make it any better? I killed people either way. What does it matter whether I killed more or less? I killed innocent people. What about that concept is so difficult to grasp?

Numbers are statistics. Death is death. I don't feel any worse if I see ten innocents die as I would if I saw one innocent die.
User avatar #125 to #120 - lordmoldywart (09/12/2012) [-]
YES, IT DOES MAKE IT BETTER, 3000 DEATHS IS LESS SADDENING THAN 11 MILLION

I don't know how I could make it any clearer
User avatar #128 to #125 - keiishiyama (09/12/2012) [-]
Death. Is. Death.

Either way, innocent people who had no connection to anything were killed for no reason at all.

We are going in circles, so unless you want to bitch at me and have me do the same, we must agree to disagree.
#130 to #128 - lordmoldywart (09/12/2012) [-]
I just don't understand your logic behind thinking 1 death is as bad as 11 million
User avatar #132 to #130 - keiishiyama (09/12/2012) [-]
Just like I don't understand how you think one choice for death and dying is better than another just because less people are involved. People still die, right? You may feel better knowing you saved some 10,000,000, but I guess I just focus on the 3,000 that had to suffer as a result of your choice.
User avatar #145 to #132 - lordmoldywart (09/12/2012) [-]
People still die, and I'd rather have no one die, but given the choice between 1 and 11 million I'd pick 1. You on the other hand would have to think about it for a while seeing as though they're both as bad as each other
User avatar #179 to #128 - ilovehitler (09/12/2012) [-]
The difference is in the cold, hard, numbers and math.

One person is one person. One person is just 1.
11 million people is 11 million people.

1 < 11, 000, 000


The difference is in the numbers.

Al Qaeda killed 3000 with that attack. It's not a good thing, but by no means is it the worst.
Hitler killed millions. That's millions of people who could have advanced out technology, medicine, and what have you. He didn't care if they were geniuses, he wanted them dead.

The 3000 in the trade center were, and correct me if I'm wrong, mainly business men and the like.
#207 to #65 - sylvan (09/12/2012) [-]
I'm an American and I understand that it's not one of the worst acts of death and destruction in history. In fact, it's nothing compared to the hundreds of thousands we've killed in the Middle East or the millions we indirectly killed in South America in order to prevent communism from spreading West. Still, like ilovehitler said, it just seems so much more real to us. Nobody from our generation or the one before (basically the generations that use the internet) was alive to experience the more famous killings of recent history like WWI, WWII, and the Holocaust. We didn't personally know anybody who was killed in these events. 9/11 however was only 11 years ago. We were able to see the tragedy through the news and those of us who were children at the time were able to understand the magnitude of the event by seeing how our parents were effected. These things are much more personal when they occur within your own lifetime. If the Big Ben was destroyed 11 years ago and resulted in the death of 3,000, I'm sure the people of England wouldn't be comfortable making jokes about it.
User avatar #95 to #24 - mahnamesjakers (09/12/2012) [-]
I actually love making fun of 9/11 over the internet, and I laugh my ass off at the crazy hilarious **** people come up with to make fun of it. All jokes aside though, I really do think it was a very tragic day for Americans. Do a lot of people go overboard with exaggerating the scale of the situation? Yes, yes they do. But I still think that, in all seriousness, it was one of the worst things to happen to America. The thing that sets it apart from other catastrophes is that it was completely and utterly unexpected (we were not in a state of war, it was just another normal day), and at the time nobody had any idea of what was going on or what would happen as a result of the planes crashing. Other events, although unexpected (such as Pearl Harbor) were slightly more expected due to the fact that we were in a time of war, and everyone knew immediately that the event happening was a bombing on a harbor. During 9/11 it took many people over a half an hour to realize that it was a plane causing the event. This is just my outlook on it but I know that a lot of people have different views on it.
#157 to #95 - elemonator (09/12/2012) [-]
Actually military intelligence were in the midst of understanding that there was potentially going to be a terrorist soon and that the twin towers may be a target. The reason it wasn't so easy for the public to know it was a terrorist attack was because the planes crashed. Planes do do that sometimes. It was then quickly realized when two planes crashed into the two different towers. We knew it was a terrorist attack on Pearl Harbor because there were ******* fighter planes bombing and shooting at us. Kind of hard not to realize what the **** is going on.

Won't listen to a foreigner? Maybe a fellow american can talk some sense into you.

You see, a lot of Americans act like 9/11 was the worst attack in human history, and have decided all muslims or middle easterners are evil terrorists because of it.

And you're right, we only show documentaries and the like, yet many still think that counts as being patriotic.

No, you don't, you are just a retard who thinks that what people say on the internet is the same that people talk about in real life. 9/11 just happened and on that day channels make documentaries of it on TV, don't like it, don't watch it (oh wait, you don't even live here) and the people who had relatives that died remind themselves because why wouldn't they?, their loss

You guided yourself by some form of media communication, whether it be the internet, tv, or the newspaper. Unless if you were a CIA detective chosen to lead the case behind the 9/11 attacks and you gathered all your information yourself, which I highly doubt you were.

Yes, the fact that 3000 *people* died on 9/11/2011 in New York is very sad.

- I still don't want to hold hand and sing 'Kumbaya' with 'my fellow Americans'
- I still disagree with most of "My Fellow Americans" about everything (just in new ways now)
- I don't appreciate the fact that those deaths were used as political fodder for more pin-suit politicians every since (and will be for decades)
- I don't like my country's 'response' to those attacks (which may have been a setup in the first place).
- I am still very suspicious that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job (The evidence relating to the pentagon is the most compelling for me)
- I don't really give a **** about comparing this event to Hiroshima/Nagasaki. They happened. Does it really matter who 'deserved' what? How do you determine is someone 'deserves' something anyways? It's your freaking opinion.

The fact that "9/11 was sad" should not interfere with our pursuit of truth about the origin of those attacks, and the debate about what steps should be takes to ensure similar events do not happen in the future.

It's an "inconvenient possibility" that not many choose to embrace.
If you've done proper, unbiased reasearch about it and come to the conclusion that it was real, then that's great, but one shouldn't blindly disregard a possibility just because you wouldn't like it.

The focus was how to revenge the attack. Not Why and HOW it happened. Not just by a plane, but how it all came together. Only wthing in focus was to revenge it. Nuff said.


Anyways, you sir deserve a medal!

...And ***if*** it turns out that people inside our country deserve to be the target of that revenge, they should not be exempt.

Just saying... if.

To all that keep saying that 9/11 happened 11 years ago and that America should get over it, I have one thing to say.

In 1865 the 13th Amendment took effect and Slavery was abolished from the United States. Now we still have dumb ass ******* and I do mean ignorant people, still running around like we just let them off the plantation. If all of these ******* are still mad about something that ended 147 years ago then we should be mad about something that happened only 11 years ago.

So to all that say that we shouldn't be mad, you can go **** off.

You should only be mad if you lost someone you love.

two completely different situations. When people say America should get over it they really mean that we have right to mourn, and be sad. But what we do not have the right to do is place our loses above the loses of others. Death is death. It affects all. Look at Iraq, the death toll for Iraqi civilians is over 100,000. So while we mourn for our own people, we shouldn't forget to mourn for their people too.
America needs to put aside it's sense of self importance and mourn all families, all friends, of all countries. Equally.

I just made an account so I could reply to this, and also to show that I am not afraid to stand behind my words (not saying that you are). And yes I know that last statement holds very little ground when said over the internet, but I would say what I said in my last post to anyone that I had to face to face. I am the anon that posted #93. I agree with you and I respect what you said. The way you put it makes sense, and we should equally mourn the deaths of the human being that have died. Now as for everyone else, I still stand by what I said, because not everyone means what you mean and if they do they don't know how to phrase it so they don't sound like complete assholes.

Again I agree with you and I respect what you said. Thank you for your post.

Its not the patriotism that is annoying, its that everything that happens to USA is a big deal, but when something happens to any other country its no big deal.

holy **** , 3,000? yeah, so many people. in mexico there have been about 10,000 deaths since 2006 because of the drug war, and they don't get memorials, recognition, an in general aren't as well-known around the world as 9/11 is. Hell, look at Syria, there's been about 20,000 deaths by July, almost 6 or 7 times as much as in 9/11. No disrespect, but yes I believe that, with all due respect, americans are a little ignorant about other world issues.
The US is bombing other countries like it's nothing, but when they get this small attack they say it's a worldwide tragedy.
