I am fed up with this whole terrorism thing.
Historically the attack itself was very small. 5000 people died? I can name a country every week where bigger tragedies are happening.
And yet, the current dominant power, USA, keeps bringing this up and up, terrorism here, terrorism there. Damn, I don't know what happened to americans, how come can they think 9/11 was a enormous disaster?
Much more important, because of this small happening, they are screwing theirselfs and the whole world. I mean, now in USA you can be arrested for the most insignificant things, have your life investigated, all in the name of "Let that not happen again"!
I remember I cried when the planes hit (I am not an american). Not because per se the act was awful, but because of the cultural implications it will have all over the world. I thought USA would close its door to a lot of things, but it's happening too damn fast. I thought the first doors to close would be international agreements, because the american people would be more paranoic with their already poor view of what other countries do.
But oh man I was wrong. Maximized by the Bush administration, the first acts were taken inside. Maybe it's because of the anthrax attacks, because they were (probaly) made by someone inside. So it was decided to first fix things inside, and later worry.
But I don't like the fix, I am sure a lot of people also don't, and I believe they are doing more harm than any good.
I repeat my first troll paragraph to make you understand why I am fed up with this, why I can't stand anymore these things happening: I can name one country every week where bigger tragedies happen.
Please, please, please, let us go on with our lifes.
