There are many conflicted accounts of what happened. Where are the families of these people who supposedly "died"? Where is the fund for them? Why did the goverment whisk off the debris so fast and not allow any inspection? Why do so many witnesses claim to have seen/heard a missle and a fighter jet? Why didn't Flight 77 leave the radar?

Here is a real work example of zero sum Toussiant. Who can forget the neocons' claim that under their leadership America creates its own reality? Remember the neocons' Iraq reality--a "cakewalk" war? After three years of combat, thousands of casualties, and cost estimated at over $1 trillion, real reality must still compete with the White House spin machine. One might think that the Iraq experience would restore sober judgement to policymakers. Alas, neocon reality has spread everywhere. It...

MBM, obviously you have been listening to Malcolm X on this topic. I feel as if this is something that black people have been consistently warned about and this is why Malcolm X was really killed. I also believe that his ties to various revolutionaries around the world and his plans to have black soldiers from Vietnam train freedom fighter armies in Africa was another motivation to have him knocked off. Were you aware that up to 75% of the Special Forces troops early in Vietnam were black?

The interesting thing is that there are a lot of Special Forces units that are mostly all White now. The author of Black Hawk Down is aware of the problem with these "elite, superior, special forces": they are all white. But he doesn't deal with what that elite whiteness means, or where it leads. The American elite forces couldn't perform their central role in Somalia – to protect the oil business – because they were white racists, untrained and unable to relate to a humanitarian mission in...

This does not answer the question. The original hole made by the aircraft was approx. 14ft in diameter, that leaves approx. 110ft of wings that are unaccounted for. Are you saying that they were sheared off? (in which case they would have been laying on the ground in the photo) Or are you saying that the wings were somehow brought into the building - through the 14ft hole? (which would defy the laws of physics) I would buy this theory except on thing - the planes that crashed into the WTC...

That may be true. However, many people would argue that black people are as human as any other human, and that most of the time, humans act in what they see as their best interests.

So if 90% of us solidly back a certain methodology, then that should stand as compelling evidence that this perspective is closer to objectively correct that the opposing one. I would...
