The 12th anniversary of the plane attacks on America will pass in a couple of days. Those of us old enough to understand news reports when those terrible attacks took place knew there would be far reaching implications. Most of us however did not realise that two wars, Iraq and Afghanistan, would follow because of 9/11, killing tens of thousands of people, including women and children.
Although four planes were highjacked in America on September 9, 2001, only three hit their targets. One was downed in a field either by the passengers on board who fought with the terrorists or, if you believe conspiracy theorists, by US fighter jets. If the latter was true the dead Americans were collateral damage.
There are many documentaries and docu-dramas being aired in the UK as the anniversary approaches and all make for grim viewing. Trying to imagine you were a person trapped high in one of the Twin Towers, on a captured plane or a first responder during the tragic events of that day is unthinkable. The families of the victims live with that on a daily basis.
Politicians faced some tough choices that day and in the days that followed, but conspiracy theorists believe that some were complicit in events. Re-Think 9/11 is one organisation which has an online petition and has begun an ad campaign around the world. The ads are on billboard posters and one is prominently displayed in Times Square.
We make no judgement but re-thinking world events is no bad thing. In light of how the world seems to be moving right now, with the Syria crisis, assessing events such as 9/11 which changed the western world forever makes sense.
The following is posted on a Chemtrails blog. It shows a group of architects in Times Square below the re-think poster. Bear in mind it is not proven fact but opinion:
Supporters for Architects and Engineers RE-THINK 9/11 CAMPAIGN came armed with factual brochures to educate and remind the public that scientific evidence does not support the government’s coverup of what happened on 9/11/2001.The huge billboard (54 X 46 ft) overlooks 47th Street and 7th Avenue and will viewed by over one-million people every day throughout the month of September. This unprecedented attention to the root of all post 9/11 evil comes at a time when the world is awakening and re-thinking the consequences of ignoring this huge pretext for endless aggression.
Conspiracy theories about world events are nothing new. Proving that they are more than theories is difficult. At times it can be impossible. You may think that 9/11 is old news and it is hurtful to re-open such painful wounds but perhaps it is time the truth was proved, no matter what that truth is.
In this writer's opinion the current lack of enthusiasm for any military action against Syria's Assad has its foundations built on the lies of politicians, top brass and special forces. Every time we learn that lies were used to fulifll a hidden agenda we lose a little more faith in our leaders, their ideals and their politics.
Was 9/11 built on lies? That is unthinkable and shameful, but is it true?
