If you are still shaken by the horrifying scenes of September 11, please observe a
moment of silence for the 5,000 civilian lives lost in the New York, Washington, DC and
Pennsylvania attacks. While we're at it, let's have 13 minutes of silence for the 130,000
Iraqi civilians killed in 1991 by
order of President Bush Sr. Take another moment to remember how Americans celebrated
and cheered in the streets.

Now another 20 minutes of silence for the 200,000 Iranians killed by Iraqi soldiers using
weapons and money provided to young Saddam Hussein by the American, British and Russian government before the great eagle turned all its power against Iraq.

Another 15 minutes of silence for the Russians and 150,000 Afghans killed.

Plus 10 minutes of silence for 100,000 Japanese killed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the
Atomic bombs dropped by the USA.

20 minutes for the 200,000 in Dresden and Hamburg in the scramble for Germany long after they were neutralized by the Soviet army.

We've just kept quiet for one hour: one minute for the Americans killed in NY, DC, and
Pennsylvania, 59 minutes for their victims throughout the world.

If you are still in awe, let's have another hour of silence for all those killed in Vietnam,
which is not something Americans like to admit.

Or for the massacre in Panama in 1989, where Americans troops attacked poor villagers,
leaving 20,000 Panamanians homeless and thousands more dead.

Or for the millions of children who have died because of the USA embargoes on Iraq and

Or the hundreds of thousands brutally murdered throughout the world by USA-sponsored advisors(what the hell that means)of so many civil wars and coups d'etat (Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Grenada to
name a few).

Maybe, and although the memory of Americans claims otherwise, someone may remember
the USA attack on Baghdad where 18,000 civilians were killed. Did someone see it on CNN?
Was justice ever served? Or was there even any retaliation?

We hope that Americans finally begin to understand their vulnerability and the cowardly
attacks and other tragedies that they have caused around the world.

Now it is important that I take great care not to mention your Allies in crimes such as England, Israel,France, India, Russia,last but not least the United Nations (sec & Sec Council).

The dead in other places hurt as much as the dead of the Towers.

Now, let's talk about terrorism and it's interconnecting causes and element i.e. RACISM ZIONISM GREED shall we?
