you know, i see a heap of comments about how bad it is that 3000 people died in this tragedy, and i seriously and fully agree.
But I mean, and i'll say it again, i seriously think that 9/11 was a ******* horrible thing, but when you look at it compared to other major tragedies around the world that have been MUCH worse, then it actually even looks silly- even when it shouldn't.

For example, who knew that the quickest and largest mass killing in the world occurred in Stalin controlled Ukraine? Most of a nation killed in less than a few years. Of course, not to mention countless tens of MILLIONS of other Russians who died in the Gulags, the generally **** conditions, and secret police "purges".

yet, when we think of great tragedies, we all seem to think towards the "mere" 3000 people who died on 9/11, all so suddenly in fire and burning flames.

but what about the tens of millions of people who slowly, systematically and efficiently murdered in Russia in only a decade (not including the following 5 years of Stalin sent 26.6 soldiers (again, excluding those millions more he deemed "traitors", who fought for him that he subsequently then killed))?

who remembers them?

So since a symbol of our power and freedom was attacked, and thousands of people lost family members and friends, America shouldn't mourn the loss because it's not as bad as some other tragedies somewhere in the world? Great point.
