    A True 9/11 Memorial

    Would it be nice, if for one day, we could convince or stop every unnatural death in the states? So that no one is murdered or killed for a full day. Now that would be a great memorial. Too bad it just wouldn't be possible.
    My evil laugh has a squeak in it.

    wow!! i wish. But there will always be those selfish people who would take this day to kill someone. You know, it's how this world is and until humanity overcomes the obstacle of superficial things such as money and goods, this is not going to happen. There will always be unhappiness, unless you take drastic measures. And with unhappiness comes dislike which can ultimately lead to death.

    Don't forget that it wasn't just the US that was affected by this.

    It appears to me that America is blaming the rest of the world for this crap. Kiwis had to suffer $1,000,000,000NZ (from tourism etc etc) because of "September 11" and I'm sure other countries are just, if not more, pissed off about it.

    Kiwis???

    I dunno, but I don't think 9/11 effected my or my family in anyway... this was the first year that we actually flew somewhere on a plane for vacation instead of driving.

    yes... america was lazy because it was worried about its image. It didn't want to be thought of as the country that killed thousands of thousands of people, rather it relies on the natives to the land which will later betray them and try to kill em (ie. osama and sudhaim)

    It's a dammed if you do dammed if you don't situation. If The US didn't help out Saddam against Iran and ignored the situation , There would be a country full of dead Iraqis. We would be hated by arabs for letting that happen. Instead we helped them, Their president went nutts and they hate us for that. I guess that is one of the ball n chains that goes with being a superpower. Take the Iraq situation today. If we do nothing and Iraq nukes some one, we'll be blamed. If we take Saddam out, we get blamed. No matter what the US bashers will be there with grins on their faces.

    yes... i no. I'm just saying before, america should've intervened and not just help someone without having real power which is the only way to preserve peace in the world. The only way to keep peace in a world of differences and hatred is by someone having power to change your minds, the us can temporarily occupy those countries (similar to what it did to japan) and then when they get on their feet. leave.

    There will always be those people who hate the us. Whatever happens, there will always be countries that hate the us. Jews and Palestinians will be enemies for a VERY long time or perhaps forever.

    Yep you are pretty much right. Doesn’t matter what the US does really. If the US goes into Iraq and takes Saddam out they will be perceived as bullies. If the US leaves him alone and he nukes someone like Israel then they get blamed for not taking him out while they had the chance.

    Being the worlds peace keeper is a thankless job. But someone has to do it. I'm glad there is someone out there at least trying.

    KIWIS ARE FROM NEW ZEALAND!

    It's because Kiwis are the native bird of New Zealand, and KiwiFRUIT is what you people probably just call kiwis.

    I sure hope whoever said it was Australian knows there are differences between NZ and Aussie! lol

    America isn't the world's peace keeper.
    It sticks its nose, rather obtrusively into other countries' business, and just causes trouble.
    Even Nelson Mandela thinks the US is a threat to world peace.
    The US only think they're the world's peacekeepers, because they wipe out anyone that could **** with them.


    And another thing, september 11th hasn't effected the whole world.
    Well actually sorry it has.
    Its pissed us all off. We want america to just shut up.
    We're all sick and tired of listening to it.
    Of course few people will say that publicly, but everyone just wants american to shut up.

    No you wouldn't. Nobody else in the world - a few mouthy politicians aside - thinks "Oh, I wish America would come and help". Why would they? They've never thought "I wish the Russians would help", or the British, or the French etc etc.


    I'd be interested to hear of genuine examples of where Americans have been vilified for not helping. Rwanda? Ethiopia? Zimbabwe? None of the above? The only times your help was requested - the two world wars - you took your bloody time. Why so keen to rush in when you're not invited?

    Because don't you understand, the US is the peace keeper of the world.
    So they have to help us all out.

    Because as you know, the rest of the world can't take care of itself.
    None of the european countries have their own armies, so we need the US to rush into everything.

    Gosh I thought you would have known that

    I think this is going a bit over the top guys.

    The average American has no say in their foreign policy, just the same as we don't.

    They do seem to live up to their stereotype somewhat, so perhaps that perception is accurate, but I also know from personal experience that they are mostly friendly people (apart from traffic cops, geez, arseholes!) and probably don't even realise that they are somewhat disliked over their policies towards others

    And they can't be that stupid. They have after all put men on the moon which is more than anybody else has done. They did start the very thing you are using right now, e.g. the internet. Whilst that screen in front of you was thanks to a Briton, the rest of your PC is thanks to Americans.

    So, how about everyone gives it a rest, because it is contributing to the sour tone around this place.

    Not true young Chris, parts of the internet are American, and parts are from all over the place the first people to form protocols for networks were mostly in Universitys & government funded stuff, based in the USA, UK, France, Germany... it's true that the Yanks have done the most development of computers, but the computer itself was mostly the brain child of a man called Alan Turing (An Englishman)

    I haven't been here much recently, I didn't know it's getting a bit sour

    My dad worked on some of the original protocols to get the proto-internet routed across SATNET from America to England (and in my home town as well )

    The RSA encryption stuff was invented by some poor man working for the British MOD. He signed the British Secrets Act so he couldn't publish it . . .

    . . .UK joins/forms NATO. UK shares technology with NATO. Americans publish algorithm . . .

    hmmm

    also made in Britain was the CD Player, DVD Player etc etc.

    As for the American's all I can say is 'Greetings from the Mothership'
