Neither the USA nor Japan was innocent in that war.


Everyone lost.


The Japanese killed a lot of non combatants (mainly Chinese in the hundreds of thousands) in the most cruel and horrifying ways, and these are NEVER taught in schools. (Maybe because we pardoned them in exchange for their research)


Unit 731 for reference.


The a bombs were devastating, no doubt.


The bigger lesson is war in general hurts humanity. 

oh yeah, well I think the use of the A bombs was justified because the casualties on both sides would've been tremendous it sucks that Japan wouldn't give up but they were big about that tradition of the Samurai and not giving up or whatever
It's interesting how the atrocities committed by the Germans/Nazis is taught so heavily but the Japs are ignored largely, they just talk about the internment of them.

I think that's what distinguishes Nagasaki and Hiroshima from 9/11. We were in a time of peace.

Now that I think about it, I think 9/11 had an indirect effect on me personally, and that would have to do with my relationship with my dad. He did some time in both the Iraq and the Afghanistan Wars when I was younger. I honestly think it wrecked my relationship with my dad hard, as I was way more attached to my mom because of that.

I'm sure I'm not the only one here who's had something like this to a parent who serves in the military.

From what I've gathered from you talking to you, I think that's very possible.

I mean, your dad really wasn't present in those early years of your life so I'm sure that had a huge impact.

i never heard of anyone who thinks it didnt happen but some people think bush did it

Not surprising. There are still people who do not believe the Holocaust didn't happen and that the SSA didn't put men on the moon.



As long as anyone is oppressed, no one will be safe and free.

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

I was waiting for an English class to start, after spending the morning at the university. A classmate came in and said "a plane hit the twin towers", and I pictured something like a Cessna crashing against it by accident. Then other people came in with conflicting information and scarce sources, and eventually we had our class without knowing the full picture. On my way home after that, I stopped at a shopwindow where TVs on sale were tuned to news stations. Saw the building on fire and the headlines, and started to get the sense that it was a bigger thing. I arrived home and my brother, who would have been at work but was ill, told me the full story, and by then the second plane had already hit its target as well. Information on the remaining planes was much scarcer, often taken back shortly after released, and I believe it took a day or more for the Pentagon's plane to be confirmed.

I think everyone I knew understood at the time that this was a relevant event, some at least in a sense of mere salience (like, say, Notre Dame's fire), some in a sense of world politics shakeup. Looking back, when I think of what changes in our world I would say were brought about /largely influence by this attack, I tend to think the ones behind it can sadly be very proud of the outcome :/



For example, in your case, it's a negative.



And while you were getting your pencils ready for English class, I was 19 years old, fresh out of high school serving in the U.S. Air Force. I believe that same day, my flight received chemical weapons hazmat training before being deployed to Bahrain 2 weeks later...


I love this country, so much so that I'd be willing to die for it. So, yeah...don't tell me how much pride I'm allowed to show for being part of one the greatest nations on Earth.


Have a great day.

I agree that these events need to be taught. after all those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. and it needs to be remembered as a tragedy. The A bombs where a tragedy. Chyrnobol was a tragedy. hiroshema was a tragedy. we remember them so we do not make the same mistakes next time.

into trains? here's the model railroad thread!

The way to get the specs for my PC. go to the store. Buy some potatos. boil them and mash the. and stuff that in a focus g with a ssd.

I might have been about 4 or 5? Think I saw it on the news, but as a 5-year-old I wasn't terribly interested in news. In any case, 3 planes crashing into buildings, 2 of them at the same location seemed absurd.


I did read about it some years later. But on that day in 2001, I really couldn't care less unless it was F1 or Manchester United.

I came home from elementary school to watch TV and I saw it on almost every TV channel. That made me realize it was that serious.


And I lived in Canada, back then.
