On the 6th anniversary of 9/11 Richard and the other local Truthers are out with their signs and leaflets. In a couple hours I'll be meeting them at the theatre to watch 9/11: Press for Truth and the 2nd edition of Loose Change (though I've seen them a dozen times apiece, and I can't stand Loose Change).
I'll post again later tonight.
What are my thoughts six years after the worst foreign terrorist attack on American soil? Mostly, tiredness. I'm tired of the administration's lies, which are being replaced by a fascistic bully-boy attitude. "OK, so you don't want us to do this, we'll do it anyway. Stop us."
I'm tired of wars that aren't accomplishing anything of substance and apparently shouldn't have been started. I'm tired of the broad hints from neocons that we must defend Israel against Iran. Israel can defend itself. 90 minutes at Entebbe? Hell, we could learn a few things from Israel. Better to let Israel fight its own battles than to ignite WWIII. I'm tired of the creepy, leering grins of Bush and Cheney. (Keep smiling, guys, you're going down in history as one of the nation's worst presidencies ever.) Most of all, I'm tired of 6 years of fighting with not much to show for it except bodies and heightened tensions.
