Only this level of "BAAAAWWWWWWWWWWW" would prompt me to post again.
We've ruined world politics in the last 10 years because we insist on crying over 9/11 and acting like it's the worst thing to have ever happened to a country, ever, and not only does every other country (who have experienced a great deal more turmoil and fear than we have, BTW. Think about S Korea's proximity to the crazy people running N Korea.) need to bend over backwards to cater to our notions about what's a high level of terrorism.
9/11 was a terrible thing to have happened. So were the Madrid bombings. But no one dragged their ARMY into an unrelated country and killed untold numbers of people over the Madrid bombings. So let's use 9/11 to ruin world politics and then BAWWWWWWWWWW and expect other countries to never make aesthetic decisions that may remind us of 9/11 too much when we look at them. Because the US is such a special, special snowflake compared to all the other nations out there that have experienced terrorism.
Really? Withdraw all of our troops and never offer aid again because we don't like that there's a building in their country that may make us think of 9/11? Are people aware that leaving the area has the potential to destabilize the region? So throwing our weight around, bullying other countries because of an apartment building, that's the appropriate response? Because no country has EVER been through ANYTHING as PAINFUL AS 9/11 BAAWWWWWW.
It's the Worst Thing In The World to us. But only to us. The IRA devastated England in past years, Spain was in pieces, torn apart by civil war relatively recently, everyone's aware of N Ireland's troubles. I would hope that no one would actively try to use the pain of 9/11 to aggravate us, but if we do not get some emotional distance from 9/11 as a country we will continue to ruin world politics.
Yes, it looks like 9/11. Insofar as any towers with interruption in the design will look like 9/11. I don't think I'd support building something like this in Manhattan, but to insist that this can't be built thousands of miles away because IT LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING THAT HAS HURT US MORE THAN ANYONE HAS EVER BEEN HURT, and especially to say that to S Korea, who's tangled with N Korea on our behalf more than once, taking a great deal of risk to do so.........................
Americans, we were hurt. It was awful. I would wish those 3000odd people back right now if I could. But we've GOT to move on. We CANNOT keep throwing our weight around regarding 9/11 like this.
