9/11's can be prevented by having the US start a foreign policy that doesn't exploit other nations. If we rebuilt Afghanistan after their war with Russia, this never would of happened. If we didn't choose to support dictators that kill their own people, aka Pinochet, Baptiste, Chang Chi Shek (sp?), Hussein just because of the money and control that is in it for us, then maybe 9/11's wouldn't happen.

Don't fall for the BS line that they hate our freedom. They hate our aggressions and using them. Or how about all those children in factories making footballs and sneakers for us to use? How much hypocrisy does the US Government show? How much do they tolerate other nations to do to their own people than they'd let happen here, just to save a few bucks? American foreign policy has been horrendous for over one hundred years.

And look what happened after the attack! People just feeling bad for themselves, feeling invaded, when they lived 1000+ miles for NYC and had nothing there at all. You heard less crying from the victims than you did from the people who wanted to be the victims! And it was about 3000 Americans who died. Always said as 3000 Americans, when in fact, it was more like 2200 Americans and 800 internationals from about 30 countries. Those people have been ignored by the ethnocentric Limbaugh types.

Also don't forget that it was Americans that attacked us in Oklahoma. Americans that mailed the Anthrax. It was Americans that started the forrest fires this summer. And it was an American who flew a small aircraft into a building in Tampa and another American who was putting bombs in mailboxes in the mid section of the country.

So if we don't want 9/11 to happen again, perhaps our foreign policy shouldn't be one based on dollars and cents, but on justice.
