I feel sorry for the people who died on 9/11. But all of the nationwide mutual masturbation that happens every anniversary of this event disturbs me. It was very sad, lots of people died in a gruesome way. But... we should let them rest, and move on. This idea that we should "never forget" is flawed. Of course we won't ever forget. We should move on. The dead would want us to. Besides... fewer than 3,000 people died in the attacks in america. Over a million civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq etc. have died in the years since. I'd say that's a much greater sorrow. It's all awful and pointless death, but the irony is that we say we'll "never forget", but we so easily forget the vast majority of deaths that happened as a result of this violence. - 9/11/13

  • Can't you see that this is what your people do to appear like they care about their country? What about all those people who they kill in your useless wars? Does someone remember them?

  • Exactly. No one cares about the furriners. Only those of the 'home team' who died become martyrs worthy of worship. My country embarasses me.

  • Misplaced idealism will cause even more deaths in the future. Never forget so you learn from history and don't repeat it.
