MY PERSONAL REASON FOR NOT CELEBRATING OR COMMEMORATING SEPTEMBER 11TH!

Today is September 11, 2016, and it is another day.

Personally, I have nothing to celebrate today, I have nothing to commemorate today; I experienced both Pearl Harbor and 9/11/01 and felt the same on both occasions.

Pearl Harbor was a horror story, which lasted about four years, hit me personally, as it hit almost all Americans. I knew the cause, I suffered the consequences, and I celebrated the end and hoped I never had to deal with war again.

However, I do not celebrate Pearl Harbor day, VE Day, or VJ Day; I celebrated peace when it came and hoped I never experienced another war or celebrate another peace.

I suffered hearing the news of September 11, 2001, while living in Europe. I felt it was December 7, 1941 all over again!

Then I breathed a sigh of relief when I found it was ONLY terrorists, and not a war of nations; there is a big difference. What I did not know at that time was the cause of the terrorist attack. Terrorists all have a cause; that cause is the terrorist’s motivation.

There is a huge difference between a “war” and a “terrorist attack”; in a war, there is a cause and two nations kill each other’s people, until one wins and a peace treaty is made, resolving the cause of war.

IRAQ WAR CEMETARY

In a terrorist attack, terrorism is a crime, there is no war, and there is “police action” and where more than one country is concerned there is “international police action”. I was relived in 2001, knowing that it was an act of terrorism and NO WAR WOULD ENSUE!

At the time of Bin Laden’s heinous terrorist attack, in 2001, I did not know the reason for the terrorist attack, nor did my government tell me then; my government either did not know, or they did NOT WANT ME TO KNOW! MY GOVERNMENT FAILED ME IN MANY, MANY WAYS; I WAS DEVASTATED! I’m still devastated today!

When I heard my beloved America was going to invade Afghanistan, a nation having nothing to do with the Saudi Arabian bin Laden’s Attack, the Afghan People had nothing to do with the Saudi Arabian bin Laden’s heinous attack, and the Saudi Arabian bin Laden was not a Taliban who was the ruling extremist Muslim religious group who was in control of Afghanistan, and who was engaged in a civil war. Even before the Invasion of Afghanistan, I publically objected to the Afghan Invasion and war that killed or maimed hundreds of thousands of innocent Afghan children, mothers, and fathers from American bombing, where THERE WERE NO MILITARY TARGETS.

AFGHAN CASUALTY OF AMERICAN BOMBING  4

Personally, in 2001 I was castigated by friends, neighbors, and my own family for objecting to the invasion of Afghanistan and killing of innocent Afghans WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SAUDI ARABIAN TERRORIST BIN LADEN, WHO LATER WAS KNOWN TO ATTACK AMERICA FOR “AMERICA PUTTING A MILITARY BASE IN SAUDI ARABIAN MUSLIM HOLY LAND in 1990, FOR DESERT STORM, AND THEREBY DEFILING MUSLIM HOLY LAND AND THAT WAS THE ACTUAL “CAUSE” FOR BIN LADEN’S HEINOUT ATTACK ON 9/11!

And, I felt personally violated by my country, my friends, and my relatives in 2001; when I returned to America in 2005, after living in Europe for five years, I discovered that Americans did not even know, and many today do not know, WHY BIN LADEN MADE HIS HEINOUS ATTACK ON AMERICA? Bin Laden’s reason did not excuse him or his attack, BUT IT WAS BIN LADEN’S REASON FOR HIS ATTACK!

Then in 2003, my beloved country invaded Iraq, without a declaration of war stating cause, claiming Saddam Hussein of Iraq had responsibility for Saudi Arabian, bin Laden’s heinous terrorist attack; he did not. My American government lied to me and the world.

SADDAM EXECUTION 2

Today on the ‘commemoration’ of the Saudi Arabian bin Laden’s heinous attack, both long disastrous wars of aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq are over; but there is not victory of either war, because there was NO LEGITIMATE REASON FOR GOING TO WAR WITH EITHER AFHANISTAN OR IRAQ! THERE WAS NOTHING TO WIN, EXCEPT BENEFITS FOR CORPORATE AMERICAN FOREIGN INVESTMENTS AND OIL.

Thousands of brave, heroic American soldiers have been maimed or killed in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq in a worthless cause for the American People; Bin Laden was apprehended by President Obama’s sending a few Special Forces into Pakistan for “police action” without going to war.

Personally, I do not celebrate September 11th; I do not commemorate September 11th! Personally, I take no pride in America for September 11; I do take pride the Peoples reaction to 9/11 and in my two grandsons who fought in combat for “their America” in the W. Bush wars I opposed. I do love Americans; I am ashamed of America for unnecessarily defiling Muslim Holy Land in 1990, and for waging wars of aggression against innocent people; but that is not the fault of the People, like me.

And, personally I am sorry to have lost the respect of friends and relatives for opposing my American Government’s religious wars of aggression, hatred, and Corporate American benefit; I only followed my conscience. And, I do not celebrate September11th.
