No comment




"On September the 10th most of the country thought that New York was full of fags, jews and spics and should just sail off into the Atlantic. By September 11th it was every hillbilly's personal tragedy."

And by the way, 35 years ago today the democratically elected government of Chile was overthrown with the assistance of the United States government. At least 6,000 people were "disappeared" or outright murdered.

Explain the collapse of the third building, the pools of molten metal in the wreckage, the absence of any identifiable aircraft parts at The Pentagon etc, etc and I will stop thinking about the Reichstag Fire. Until then, condolences to those who lost loved ones and hope that the perpetrators are identified and captured someday.

Nathan Nothin' made much the same analogy with the Reichstag fire. Plausible enough, but i just don't buy it.

Thanks for the timely reminder on the Pinochet coup of 1973. Thatcher too connived with that bastard a couple of decades later. I'd posted on Victor Jara a couple of weeks back, but I was premature.

When I caught the breaking news on 9/11 I was listening to the Ramones. My son's mother telephoned to tell what was up, and I switched on the TV but watched it with the sound turned way down. Very surreal.
Even 7 years later it hardly seems possible. I could not bear to post anything remotely commemorative yesterday. I did not trust myself to say what I wanted without causing confusion or offence. The burden of uffering is always heaviest on the innocent.

Hey Ib, I really don't have any answers. I cried for days after 9/11/01. I couldn't stop thinking about all of those ordinary people who had been seized in the midst of their ordinary lives, all to prove somebody's point. I had no idea what had happened that day. I still don't. I'm deeply dissatisfied with the official explanations, and I can't stop noticing who benefited most from the attack. I'm also tired, frustrated and indiscreet. I blurt shit out.
