This year a lot of people I know just don’t care about 9/11. They are tired about hearing of the 2,000 Americans killed, while our government continues with war across the Middle-east and the local politicians throw working people to the streets.
Things that detract from the sympathy most people feel for the lost loved ones;
*drone-assassins, the murders of thousands of innocents and they amount to executions of terrorist suspects without even a trial.
*The Veterans Administration routinely denies benefits to damaged vets and forces them to return again and again to conflicts in the Middle-east.
*Our politicians continue to sign of the Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act, which simply allows any violation of our civil liberties based on the supposed “threat” of security.
*CIA use of water-boarding and other forms of torture at Gitmo and other sites.
*The coordinated violent attacks, and assaults, on the Occupy Wall Street and activist student movements in the last 24 months. This resulted in many Americans jailed for simply protesting the government.
Americans have become cold-hearted and mean-spirited against people in foreign countries, but also against our own people here at home. Not many people in the rest of the world would sympathies with this country today. Many people here don’t either. America reaps what it sows and right now it sows nothing but hate. That can product nothing but people who hate America. -សតិវ អតុ
