NikoIaev: How could the WTC tragedy happen in America? Leave it to the Maqrines to abandon political correctness and speak the truth. Here's how... from a U.S. Marine corps harrier pilot.

NikoIaev: The tragedy that befell all of us on Spetember 11th shocked America. America no longer feels safe. Many of you said "The government should have known! Thirty billion dollars is being spent on intelligence!! What about the military!?!?" Just a reminder, America, you voted our Clinton government into office. For years you allowed some dishonest politicians and twisted television media personalities to shape your ideas about the defense of our nation.

NikoIaev: Why? Because most Americans were too lazy to listen beyond the 3-minute sound bytes on the evening news. Here's a news flash not being broadcast much.: "On Spetember 11th, America had the exact level of protection, military and intelligence, that it was willing to pay for."

NikoIaev: Only yesterday the Congress and the Senate approved 40 BILLION dollars "down payment" to fight this war. A short time ago, our politicians said a 100 million dollar increase to the Navy budget was substantial. In that same bill they ordered the Navy to conduct an 85 million dollar study on... breast cancer research.

NikoIaev: Yes, America, your elected officials decided that the US Navy needed more mammograms and fewer missiles. Was this an under the table sneaky move? No, it was right out in the open. The Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the Navy both opposed it. A New York Senatorial Candidate (Yes, she's the one) was enraged that the Military would be so sexist and irresponsible to the needs of civilians and wanted the Navy to give the money

NikoIaev: back immediately! But the media paid it little mind. So, America paid little attention. Did anyone ever watch CSPAN? Particularly when the heads of our armed services essentially begged OUR representatives to give the military more money to fight terrorism and maintain a strong defense? Did you see the debates by the heads of intelligence services that terrorism was the new threat? They told the commities of Congress that the CIA, FBI and the

NikoIaev: Services did not have the necessary money to build intelligence networks in the areas where terrorists were being harbored. They warned again and again that there was clear and present danger within America's borders. Americans must have been watching one of their other 114 satellite channels. The military said: "We need more money to maintain military radiness and Combat Training." Americans Answered: "What the military needs is Sensitivity

NikoIaev: Training! You're all sexist homophobes! I saw it on 60 minutes!" The military said: "We need more money to build ships, planes, tanks, and improve our technologu. America still has credible threats throughout the world. Terrorism will come to America's doorstep." America Answered: "You're all part of a vast right-wing conspiracy. There is no more Soviet Threat! My Snator told me so! He/She says we do not need such a big military!

NikoIaev: You're dinosaurs trying to hold onto the Cold War! We need Social Programs!" The Military said: "We need to recruit more Americans into the military. We need to increase our force." America Answered: "You're not taking my kids! We're going to shut down the ROTC programs at our high schools and universities, because you descriminate against alternative lifestyles! ROTC teaches CHILDREN (under 21) how to shoot guns! You just want another Columbine! Rosie and Oprah say so!"

NikoIaev: The Military said: "We can't keep interfering in the civil wars of small insignificant countries. It wastes our time, expends our resources, decreases training, and demoralises our troops. The men and women of the United States are Warriors trying to defend OUR nation, we are not the third world's police force." America Answered: "You heartless bastards!

NikoIaev: Can't you see the tear in the eye of that starving child!?! There are flies on her face for Christ's Sake! Get Moving! Jesse Jackson on CNN said that is what we pay you for!" The Military asked: "Why isn't America enraged over the terrorist attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 AMERICAN sailors? How about the Air Force barracks bombed in Saudi Arabia? The embassy staffs in Africa? The soldiers mutilated and dragged throughout the streets of

NikoIaev: Samolia?" America Answered: "We don't have the time right now! We're busy defending our animal rights! Our schools are handing out automatic weapons! The federal givernment is descriminating against cross-dressing Bolivian hermaphrodites! The police are all members of the Ku Klux Klan! The lack of Ozone is ruining my tan! If they cut deeper into Food Stamp those poor women will have to move down to size 18/20 deresses! AND THE WORST!

NikoIaev: Corporations are raising the prices of thier products so high I might not be able to afford the multi-disc DVD player for my 36" digital-ready TV! Besides, YOU GUYS ARE PAID TO DIE!" So, America, while you sit on your couch or around your office coffee pots and ask, "Why did those terrorists kill innocent civilians? Why didn't they go after the military?" remember

NikoIaev: this, America: They already had, but America didn't care. These terrorists realised that they needed to kill American civilians, and lots of them, before they could have thier desired reaction from the people of this country. Well, now they have it.

NikoIaev: isn't tom sexy

remembering sept 11

I still cant belive it was a year ago even though so much stuff has hapened since. I remember it so clearly. I woke up at like 9 am that morning. Because I was pregnant at the time, And i had bad morning sickness. So i got up to run to the bathroom, And when i came back in my room i turned on my T.V. And i seen the planes crash into the tower. I really didnt know what to think. I thought we were at war or something. So i called my bf at work. He said he was listening to it on the radio. Now its all ready a year later. And i hope nothing like that ever hapens again. I mean last year i wa sscared because i was pregnant. But this year I have a baby to watch out for. So its even worse, cause I am somewhat scared for him to.

(no subject)

i am very nervous about today. i don't think the terrorists will hit again, although they might. but its highly unlikely - although the united states is on VERY high alert today( which is NOT a good sign ).

even though i don't think the terrorists will bomb the united states just the thought of september eleventh being here again is nerve racking in itself.

Happy Birthday Joey. -.-;;

Today is my friend Joey's birthday. ._.; It was kinda sad, we were all so happy on the morning of September 11th, screaming " Happy Birthday to You " at the top of our lungs on the bus, then Andy haney got on and just screamed " THE TWIN TOWERS HAVE BEEN BOMBED, Y0. " x_x; We like, didn't believe him at first... Until we turned on the radio and we heard people discussing it on there. Then my friend A.J. got on saying they had bombed the pentagon. .__.; We were all freaking out by the time we got to school, my friend Jessica and I were hugging and crying saying " I don't want to die!! " o.o; Thinking up places that they would bomb next, not suprinsingly, they were all in California x.x; A lot of teachers broke down crying and had to leave school, all of us, and even the people that made fun of everything couldn't even smile that day. .-. The anniversary can't be any better.

TWO THOUSAND ONE, NINE ELEVEN

Two thousand one, nine eleven
Five thousand plus arrive in heaven
As they pass through the gate,
Thousands more appear in wait
A bearded man with stovepipe hat
Steps forward saying, "Lets sit, lets chat"

They settle down in seats of clouds
A man named Martin shouts out proud
"I have a dream!" and once he did
The Newcomer said, "Your dream still lives."

Groups of soldiers in blue and gray
Others in khaki, and green then say
"We're from Bull Run, Yorktown, the Maine"
The Newcomer said, "You died not in vain."

From a man on sticks one could hear
"The only thing we have to fear.
The Newcomer said, "We know the rest,
trust us sir, we've passed that test."

"Courage doesn't hide in caves
You can't bury freedom, in a grave,"
The Newcomers had heard this voice before
A distinct Yankees twang from Hyannisport shores

A silence fell within the mist
Somehow the Newcomer knew that this
Meant time had come for her to say
What was in the hearts of the five thousand plus that day

"Back on Earth, we wrote reports,
Watched our children play in sports
Worked our gardens, sang our songs
Went to church and clipped coupons
We smiled, we laughed, we cried, we fought
Unlike you, great we're not"

The tall man in the stovepipe hat
Stood and said, "don't talk like that!
Look at your country, look and see
You died for freedom, just like me"

Then, before them all appeared a scene
Of rubbled streets and twisted beams
Death, destruction, smoke and dust
And people working just 'cause they must

Hauling ash, lifting stones,
Knee deep in hell, but not alone
"Look! Blackman, Whiteman, Brownman, Yellowman
Side by side helping their fellow man!"

So said Martin, as he watched the scene
"Even from nightmares, can be born a dream."

Down below three firemen raised
The colors high into ashen haze
The soldiers above had seen it before
On Iwo Jima back in '44

The man on sticks studied everything closely
Then shared his perceptions on what he saw mostly
"I see pain, I see tears,
I see sorrow - but I don't see fear."

"You left behind husbands and wives
Daughters and sons and so many lives
are suffering now because of this wrong
But look very closely. You're not really gone.

All of those people, even those who've never met you
All of their lives, they'll never forget you
Don't you see what has happened?
Don't you see what you've done?
You've brought them together, together as one.

With that the man in the stovepipe hat said
"Take my hand," and from there he led
five thousand plus heroes, Newcomers to heaven
On this day, two thousand one, nine eleven
