Do we need another 9/11?

Filed under: War on Terror — relee @ 9:22 am

9-11-01I’m not sure we do, but it’s an interesting idea, courtesy of Stu Bykofsky of the Philadelphia Daily News:

America’s fabric is pulling apart like a cheap sweater.

What would sew us back together?

Another 9/11 attack.

The Golden Gate Bridge. Mount Rushmore. Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The Philadelphia subway system. The U.S. is a target-rich environment for al Qaeda.

Is there any doubt they are planning to hit us again?

If it is to be, then let it be. It will take another attack on the homeland to quell the chattering of chipmunks and to restore America’s righteous rage and singular purpose to prevail.

I think this may be going too far. What do you think?

My feelings are best summed by this: pray for peace, prepare for war.

  1. Another attack, which we all know is coming, would certainly reunite America against her terrorist foe. But is the cost of such a disaster too high? I bet Stu is getting a lot of hatemail of late for daring to voice this opinion.

  2. I bet he is too. This is the most preposterous thing I have ever heard, impale America so that it will unite in hatred against a worthy foe. Umm, this is just the thing we christians should pray for (note sarcasm). This is a little too Westboro Baptist Church I think. Are you people sure that you don’t go there? I have my doubts. Well I will pray for you and upon you being cured of this primative hatred I will sing the praises to Jesus!

  3. I think those atheists-gay-pagans in California need a douse of 911 to get the to wake up and smell Jesus’ coffee. Frankly blowing San Fransisco and Hellywood off the map would do everyone lots of good.

  4. That was only the judgemental satan stored within you speaking. May Jesus wrap you in his love and cure you of this judgemental hatred. We are not the almighty and we shall not cast our stones upon fellow sinners! may god love you!

  5. That’s some of the strangest logic I’ve ever seen. As if another attack will make the problems in Iraq go away or compel everyone to like Bush.

  6. Yep if only everyone in america would blow up major cities and kill all flute players this would be the place to be wouldnt it?

  7. America would be better off without flute handlers and other perverts. But you’re straying off topic. Would another 9/11 style attack reunite America? Wouldn’t that possibly be a good thing?

    We are currently divided. We need to unite for a common cause: defeating the Islamofascist terrorists. Perhaps another attack would bring us together. I think that’s what this author is saying.

    True or false?

  8. Another attack will unite the Americn people against Bush & all the other incompetents who are running this nation into the ground. As a matter of fact, chances are good that Bush (or whoever it is who’s really runnimg things) will orchestrate an attack, probably just before the election, or, especially when a Democrat wins, just after the election, so they can simply turn the U. S. into the fascist nation they want.

  9. You obviously do not read! I already said that is the sickest idea I have ever heard how can you support mass murder for the effect of united hatred on a Christian agenda. You obvioulsy type without thought.

    And for M.Bouffant you have got to be kidding me right you think that republicans are facists while the two main contributer to the democrats are obviously socialits. This is the corrupt one-sided world we live in people only see the truth in one half. You are mistaken. And, Psycheout and stu are sick twisted indiviuals, if only La Mona were here, You deserve the sad fate that you shall recieve. May GOD have mercy on your pitiful soul!

    Do you honestly believe that another 9/11 would unite us? I don’t. Heck, I can picture the blame game that would play out right now. the left would blame Bush for invading Iraq for nothing, and we’d be quick to point out that all that BS rhetoric “fight them over there”, “they’ll follow us home”, “democracy will defeat the hateful ideology” was as we always argued, BS. The right will attempt to use it as a way to scorn anyone who dared to be more concerned about not having health insurance or protecting the environment than terrorism. They’d try to spin it into a “I told you so” situation and increase calls for interning Muslims, martial law, invade yet another country or to passing laws that would cement our status as a bona fide police state. That, and they’d blame the liberals and the Dems for trying to undermine the effort or say that their actions “emboldened” the terrorists to strike us again.

    Frankly (and frighteningly), I don’t think it would take another “9/11” to accomplish this either. A single suicide bomber in a suburban mall would probably be enough to throw the country into a panicked tizzy. I’m afraid that cooler heads would not prevail.

    In other words, false. Another “9/11” would not be a good thing for America. This guy is off his rocker.

  11. They won’t attack here because we’re defeating them in Iraq!

  12. M. Bouffant, you sound like a Ron “Truther” Paul supporter.

    Interesting analysis, ChenZhen. But when America is attacked, people tend to rally around the leader, any leader. Americans, by and large, are scared little children looking for someone to protect them. Sad, but true.

  13. Thank you for an ideal and realistic portrayal and answer to the question. God is with you ChenZhen. May his love prevail! Jesus is famous for what (his love=correct response). He is howere, not famous for his ability to over-throw the roman government you should think Mr. Psycheout. may god cure you of your stubborness to accept the truth!!! may god invade you !

  14. Since everybody is too sissy to accept the death of two thousand more left coast liberals like what happen on 9/11 I suggest we just pretend another 911 happened. With special effects today we can easily create a virtual terrorist attack that will seems as real as an actual event. We’ll then have a lottery and select two thousand people at randmon to go live in England or something. That way we can pull together before the terrorist attack happens and stop it.

    Once the liberals see what it would be like if two nuclear warheads were set off in San Fransissyco and Las Angels by a gang of atheists and Muslims they’ll come around to our side.

  15. If that’s what it takes to get the nation back on track again, then sadly, so it must be. ?It’s sad that the democRATs have put their partisanship in front of patriotism and are unwilling to protect the nation just to pander to a few anti-war nuts.

  16. Hey Harry is taken loser. Anyway it isn’t fear that makes the idea stupid it is the fact you people think that one life has more spiritual value than another would you hope that two thousand christians die and go to heaven, than two thousand hellbound souls. You should virtually stand on a pedestal and push them into hell youself. thank you but no thanks i dont think its my place to push people into an eternity in a lake of fire. My jesus cleanse you of these satanic thoughts!

  17. Harry Potter,

    Me or no TRUE Christian will ever push anyone into a Lake of Fire. That’s Christ’s job. We are just warning people because we love dirt bags like you and don’t want to see your worthless backside burning hell.

    I forgive you for your’ harsh words a 100 times a 100 times as Jesus tells me to. My Jesus forgives your Jesus for being a false Jesus.

  18. Harry was with us long before you, Harry Plotter. So you’d best apologize and shut up. Otherwise our moderator Sam Brown may be banning you in short order. You can count on it.

  20. BJ,
    How dare you question me with you word-twisting and Pseudo-Chrstianity. You are a LIAR. You said,

    “Since everybody is too sissy to accept the death of two thousand more left coast liberals like what happen on 9/11…”

    I don’t think that sounds forgiving do you? First you want to blind-side “liberals”, but you dont know whether or not there are christians there. You are a poor excuse of a representative of Christ. There is only one Jesus thank you very little. The only thing different is the word-twisting christians who take all (including the metaphorical) stories in the bible as literal. That is the “difference” between our Jesus’ I don’t like the way you present your self as “working” for God. Yet you speak for selfish reasons. Grow up, learn what a metaphor is, and ask jesus to excuse your ignorance! Thank You GoodDay!

  23. There is only one Jesus thank you very little.

    Yes, the one in The Bible that I worship, not the false hippy Jesus you heretics have cut and pasted out of scripture. Unlike you Harry Potter I don’t go threw The Bible with a red marker striking out anything I don’t like. That whole “it’s a metaphor” line is just nothing more that the greased poll to Hell set up by Satan himself.

  25. Thank You but no, I do accept the bible as is. The fact to lie about me (and Jesus) is not looking good for you.

  27. I think ChenZhen is right here.

    What the situation in Iraq would really need would be a change of strategy. The normal strategies worked when you squashed Saddam in mere weeks. But they failed against the insurgents, leading to the quagmire we have right now. The surge wasn´t as effective as exspected, either.

    (Perhaps to your surprise) I´m against a full withdrawal of US troops right now. It would plunge Iraq into a full, all-out civil war. What is really needed is more international support. As might as it is, the US military can´t pacify a country as big as Iraq on it´s own.

    With other troops around, one could also have an eye on potential foul apples inside the US troops. People like those that have been court martialled recently for rape and murder against Iraqui citicens are only plunging gas into the fire of this conflict.

    @BJ: 2 nuclear warheads would likely kill a bit more than 2000 people.🙂 And faking that is rather impossible, seeing that millions of people in those cities would know it´s fake in an instant.

    At first they would know it was a fake but after a week of 24/7 news coverage of the virtual terrorist attack convince them.

    As for the number of virtually dead, the virtual terrorist nuclear weapons will have killed more people if it wasn’t for President Bush’s bold leadership.

  29. Is Ed Note supposed to be an editor of the site? Because he/she seems really biased. People who host sites aren’t supposed to imply sway to either side, not that it matters, though. After all, this isn’t our site. We’re just here to piss you people off. All we’re really doing is clashing idealogies. No one has or will ever succeed in converting or altering in any way anybody here. You see that, right? Clashing idealogies does nothing without stable argument, which no one has offered at all this whole time.
    It’s interesting that Ed Note bans Tyler Duren for spamming, but not Sysiphus or PsycheOut for being radical extremists who advocate murder and conspiracy.

    [Ed Note: If you have a point, perhaps you should make it, Mr. Caldwell. Tyler Durden posted the same comment on over a dozen threads and he did it more than once. He was warned. And he failed to heed the warning. He is the only person who has ever been banned here at B4B, and God willing, will be the only one going forward. He could simply apologize and be allowed to comment again, but he has not. Psycheout was warned by me about posting pictures of Mormon underpants. I hope that makes you feel better. If you don’t think I am fair, you are free to go elsewhere. I am a very patient man. Perhaps you should be as well. Sincerely, Sam Brown.]

  30. I’ll probably get banned for attacking the almighty Ed Note now.

    Oh, please. You people still think NASA’s fake, and if you people are the ideal Americans, why should the patriotic population be convinced?

    Simply anyone in the cities would know it´s a lie. You know, it´s rather hard to miss a nuclear explosion going of right besides your house.🙂
    And every newsstation in the cities would at once bring out the story that it´s fake.

    And any leadership, as good as it might be, is totally useless against a sudden nuclear detonation. It could save some people from the radiation afterwards, but in case of a nuke detonation in Downtown L.A. the explosion alone would kill far more than 2000 people.

    Another thing would be that it´s quite impossible to find an excuse as to why no houses have been damaged. Even an explosion of just half a kiloton strengt would flatten a whole block and damage every adjacent.

  33. We should just get invaded by aliens. It worked in Independence Day! That way we could focus on killing them instead of killing each other.

  34. People always unite in the face of crisis. But, more often than desired, people become monsters to fight monsters. Look at Nazi Germany: they pulled themselves out of the Depression and became a superpower in record time.

    But why is division such a bad thing? Why should unification be desired over balance? If everybody believes the same things, supports the same things, nothing would ever get done. Existence would have lost its meaning. The reason modern religion even exists is because they constantly compete with each other.

    Even Capitalism is based on constant competition. Capitalism could not work if a single monopoly owned everything. No, it requires individual parts growing and changing in response to healthy competition. Capitalism is, in a way, economics’ own Natural Selection.

    No, I think that “reunification” of America is an undesirable event. America was created in balance, and as long as it is a democracy, it will always have balance.

    The Soviet Union never had balance. It was the state or nothing at all. That is an example of terrible unity.

  35. PG,

    You’re missing the beauty of their plan; with a virtual nuclear weapon the destructive power is what ever the government will says it is. It’s not like it is a real attack. Anyway terrorist nuclear weapons are more likely to be dirty than explosive anyway. As for what the locals thing, well they will are ready know it’s only what might happen so no problem there.
