9/11 + 10: America still impotent, rapidly forgetting

Ten years and a day ago, on September 10th 2001, America was hot shit. Our military maintained bases across the planet, and our fleets of supercarrier-backed battle groups maintained our dominance across the world's oceans.

Then 9/11 happened, and the world learned that Big Stud Uncle Sam was completely impotent. Just like a body-builder whose testicles shriveled up from decades of steroid use, America's trillion-dollar-a-year defense industry was completely flaccid when we were attacked with 19 box-cutters.

No matter how many brown people we kill in the Forever War, America will never get its mojo back.

However, 10 years has given us enough perspective to say one thing for sure: while an impotent bodybuilder can take a blue pill to perform, not even Energy Viagra can help with gangrene of the nation's horsecock.

It doesn't help that we're forgetting what happened on that day, 10 years ago today. It will only be another 20 or 30 9/11 days before the world mostly forgets.

After no more than 60 9/11 holidays, grandchildren won't even ask their grandparents where they were on 9/11/01, because no one will care.

To make the point: who here remembers World War I?  That's right: NO ONE! The only people who could possibly remember life during the first world war are at least 100 years old, and are probably locked up in a nursing home. We don't even celebrate Armistice day anymore. The holiday is now called Veteran's Day so that there is a little bit of relevance to people who are still alive.

But we're only 10 years out, and the infection is severe. While  maggot therapy might've helped 10 years ago, when the infection was still fresh, today horsecock amputation is the only option that can possibly keep the patient alive.

but one day in the not-really-that-far future, most people will be taking the day off, BB-Qing, maybe popping some fireworks, getting drunk and enjoying the 'AT&T-Mobile Memorial Patriot Bowl'.

The only ones that will be concerned about what happened on this day will be the kids in History class that have been told it will appear as a section on the test.

So, I wonder who's going to be on Idol this season?

When I say that (1.00 / 3) (#25)
by alevin on Tue Sep 13, 2011 at 08:02:38 PM EST

I mean that I'm a little bit more caring because someone in my family was in one of those buildings and narrowly escaped being killed.

Surely if someone in your family was nearly murdered or raped you'd feel a little less indifference about the event than those not directly involved (300 million others). I'd daresay though that most of those 300 million, though not directly involved, probably do care more about 9/11 than the average kuron, judging by what I've seen & heard in the media from citizens of this country vs. the sentiment in this story.

I don't have high expectations of anyone here or take it personally, though. Just that I do still care myself.

Of course the average American cares more. (none / 1) (#27)
by messybuu on Wed Sep 14, 2011 at 12:48:57 AM EST

#1 The average American is a true Christian. The average kuron is a pagan. Pagans believe humans to be a threat to Gaia and thus the only good human is a dead human (or a pagan). #2 The average American is an American. The average kuron is a European. Europeans hate humanity and love nothing more than for people to die needlessly (see trench warfare in World War 1).

Plenty of horrific trench warfare there. The European error was not in learning from the wounds the USians inflicted upon themselves.

It's far more likely to kill me or my loved ones than terrorism ever was or will be.

I care more about random murder and rape than I do about terrorism.

In short, most of the people in the United States are morons because they care a lot about the possibility of an extremely unlikely event that kills fewer people than their precious SUVs.  How many times has someone cut you off and almost clipped your front bumper or almost ran a red light into you?  Yeah, you're a Traffic Survivor.  Congratulations.

Highlights of yesterday's ceremony at WTC site (1.50 / 2) (#15)
by alevin on Mon Sep 12, 2011 at 01:07:46 PM EST

which I attended, included: God hates fags and 9/11 truthers. (hi rez)
which one do you agree with? (3.00 / 2) (#16)
by krkrbt on Mon Sep 12, 2011 at 05:02:31 PM EST

You've obviously chosen to highlight these two groups, so one of them must resonate with you. Are you a truther, or do you hate fags?

Just curious. :)

I just might be one (fag) myself (2.00 / 3) (#17)
by alevin on Mon Sep 12, 2011 at 06:58:05 PM EST

so when I saw them I was thinking like "MAYBE IM A FAG AND I'LL FUK U THA FUK UP WUT THE FUK U GONNA DO ABOUT IT" towards them. Of course I didn't say anything. Looks like they flew into NYC just for this event from Bumblefuck, Midwest or something.

I took a bunch of pics, you can see them by removing the filename at the end of the URL and viewing just the directory but there wasn't much interesting but those two and the new WTC buildings under construction so that's all I highlighted.

Anyway yeah maybe I'm gay FIIK but far from admittedly so excluding this post and a few people so yeah. oops.

Guess I went to visit in May 2003 - it was a big hole in the ground then.

I was actually in Queens the weekend before. I thought about going to visit the towers again, but figured they'd still be there 'next time', and didn't want to deal with bridge tolls and parking, or figuring out public transit.

new building looks quite shiny:


Thanks for the pics. :)

That explains why god sent planes into NYC (3.00 / 4) (#23)
by Pentashagon on Tue Sep 13, 2011 at 06:51:48 PM EST

instead of San Fransisco.  Waaaay more fags in NYC.

That makes about as much sense as Bush whacking all his rich cronies instead of flying planes into NASA or other scientific research centers.

I think it's worth reading, so:


there, much better. :)  I like this quote:

One of the lessons of 9/11--the actual lessons, not the ones they talk about--is that countries are more powerful than Man from U.N.C.L.E. conspiracies. If you're attacked by an actual country, like Imperial Japan, you've got a problem; if you're attacked by a nutters' club like Al Qaeda, you'd be better off taking a Xanax and getting back to business. We'd have saved a lot of lives and money if we'd just ignored 9/11.
