    Did the USA 'have it coming'? Inevitable attacks on US soil.

    A proper venue to discuss whether or not and if so why, how and whatever - - - transferred from the 9/11 thread.

    Of course they did. They are after all the evil Satan according to the terrorist's. Add to the list the US's little Satan helpers. Ya know them countries gettin wots comin to them.

    UK
    France
    Pakistan
    Israel
    Palestine
    Russia
    China
    Spain
    Philippines
    Germany
    Indonesia

    These just off the top of my head. Sure there are more but you get my drift.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Agree with you that they had it coming, but that list of countries; why Palestine at all? Israel is surely top of the list followed closely by the UK. Russia is very anti-west and could be considered an ally to Bin Laden. China WTF, could be anything.

    That's why 'getting what's coming' is written the way it is.

    Ok, no real responses, let's see if I can state my opinion without being labeled as a baby-killer by certain sections of this board - - -

    I am proposing that the reason this event had such a devastating effect in the American psyche is simply because it happened on US soil. A quick look at the last 100 years shows where the wars/attacks/police actions were played out . . . the US involved - for whatever reasons:

    WW I
    WW II (yes, Hawaii copped a bombing)
    Korea
    Vietnam
    Iraq (Bush sr)
    Sudan
    Iraq (Bush jr)
    Afghanistan
    (Then the little ones in Panama etc . . .)

    Battles and wars where the US lost many more soldiers/people than 9/11, but the scars of the attack in NY run deeper in the American psyche and has dictated the political direction as 'the end justifying the means'.

    Point being that the US sends its forces (again for many reasons) overseas to fight, recently for a bizarre concept called 'democracy' which needs to be brought to societies that have never had it, nor are ready for it.

    I am guessing that the above may be a reason for some quarters to have celebrated the attacks. I can only guess because nothing justifies the loss of innnocent lives, be it 9/11 New York and DC nor Baghdad, Kabul etc . . . Anyone who would like to use this thread to suggest otehrwise for their feeble reasons of a lack of ability to discuss issues intelligently can simply get fukked.

    The unquestioned loyalty and support for Israel (please try to nail me on this as I am a great believer in the right for Israel to exist in peace and spent time on a kibbutz) is clearly a thorn in the side for not only Palestinians but for the region as a whole.

    The conspiracy theories that the US os led by the Great Jewish Conspiracy ( Hi Jesus Jones! )

    I always wondered if the sole DOA in a terrorist attack ever stops to reflect: Damn, I'm glad I was the only one.

    they DEFINITELY had it coming.
    i do not have any time for the moslems, and do not condone what they did:-i think their religious fanaticism is dangerous, and an abberation and they dress funny and all that, BUT

    the yanks were warned, could easily avoid any moslem shit if they did only one thing: stay the fuck off moslem soil!!
    i know this is a very simplistic viewpoint, and that there are huge issues, plus reasons the americans need to interfere in the moslem world, but then they should expect retaliation.
    why not just be honest:
    "we need oil, saddam has pissed us off, and we want iraq's oil supply, and we will go there and fukkin take it, coz we CAN!
    Bush would have got my respect, had he done that, instead of using the lame excuses about osama bin laden, saddam being a twat, etc,to justify the gulf war
    if you want to/need to kick moslem arse, just do it! but don't squeal when they fight back!

    When someone puts something out there it always comes back at you!

    Expect a few on Teak Door wouldn't be surprised (one day) and to have an irate fellow poster tap them on the shoulder and wack them on the nose and after they have "put out there" a particularly nasty and personal post!

    Lankmark/Icon status maybe. How dare you is a good guess. Don't ever mess with our money can't be too far off. (For people of NYC) It wasn't a TV show this time. For the warmongers, a perfect goal in overtime!

    It's probably because the people were convinced that America was impenitarible due to their technical know how. Similar thing to the French and 'The Maginot Line'. All the knowledge the US has and it takes half a dozen camel shaggers to bring it to it's knees. US get over it.

    Seriously though, I doubt it. For all the ranting and raving I see TD as a place where people who are sometimes isolated, through choice or force of circumstance, to interact, vent, explode, or just rip the shit out of fellow TDers who want to do the same.
    I find it hard to believe that it'd go beyond that.
    OK obvious exceptions being Galt and Wilde.
    Other than that though, no.
    Have there been any "extra IT" confrontations in the history of TD? I don't know.
    Sad if there were.

    No the US didn't deserve 911, nor UK or Spain theirs, and for that matter can't see that any of Allah's victims deserve anything that civilised nations have been cursed with for pussyfooting with the scourge.

    Easy for armchair pundits to prosecute the person who's set alight, rather than the arsonist.

    Deserved? Nobody deserves this. 'have it coming' - absolutely.

    Sure, meddling in others affairs does have consequences, specially if accompanied by the kind of talk I have witnessed by Americans on the net.

    Were the top brass caught unawares at Pearl Harbour? I don't think so...hindsight is fine for putting together the clues, but PH may have been just the sort of catalyst they wanted/needed to squash the yellow menace.

    i do not believe that, would be happy to see the camelshaggers destroyed- just need to be honest about it!
    if you are going to beat the crap out of a country for your own gains, why try make excuses for it? ...just fukkin do it!
    if you start a fight, and get a bloody nose,: get up and fight back, or admit defeat!
    bottom line is:
    just fukkn be honest about what you are doing! that way you will end up with supporters and detractors from all sides, and you will know how you stand in the grand scheme of things.
    no need for bullshit....ever!
