Real 9/11 memorial.

This is what I'd have done, had it been up to me. Athena.

Fifty stories tall. Throwing her spear at Mecca. The tip of the spear is a full-sized F-15 Eagle. Only my version has her throwing a lot harder and looking a lot more dangerous. She'd have 3,000 helpers holding her re-loads. And the construction would be finished.

'Nuff said.

If it'd been up to me, there wouldn't be a Mecca left to point at.

The first response to 9/11 would have been to nuke it.

But, hey, that's just me.

Memorial is better than nuking them. Its scarier, its -cheaper-, and it lasts longer. That's because it sends the right message to the right people without killing everybody else.

I've heard that idea before! :)

We should have no qualms about pointing fingers at the real culprits or speaking plainly on this matter. For decency's sake and for our own survival.

Hi Osumashi!

Given evolving events in Egypt and Syria, I think we will have plenty of cause to name the real culprits and build Athena.

I've long been loudly of the opinion that its stupid to put the whole Western World on OHMYGHOD!!! alert for a few deluded assholes like Al Qeerda. A Muslim Brotherhood controlled Egypt, Libya, Syria and Iran, that's different.

I think Mr. Harper's actions regarding the military lately are very well advised. Bring back the traditions of the services, put the Queen at the top where she belongs, buy some new stuff and hire some more guys.

Because clearly the days of letting the Americans do it all are over. Barry ain't going to do jack shit.
