Today we should all remember a tragic event – the day a vicious world empire found a publicly acceptable excuse to bomb others, invade non-threatening nations, torture political dissidents and kill at least 300,000 innocent people, in pursuit of economic and political objectives. September 11th has shown that they consider one American life to be at least worth the blood of 100 other innocents. While it is a universal truth, that all human lives lost, should be mourned – the point behind this statement is, the people who have organised the quasi-religious 9/11 memorials – and who have used it for their murderous political purposes, clearly do not. In the end, the 9/11 memorial is a testament to the inequality of their viewpoint to the lives of humans, based upon their nationality and religious affiliation. The memorial to WW1 commemorates the deaths of both Germans and Allies – but the 9/11 memorial commemorates an unapologetic focus only upon the lives of the American victims – while ignoring the far larger number of victims which died subsequent to, and in the name of, the 9/11 attacks.
The Terrorists attacked on 9/11 in the name of the globally oppressed Muslims – The American government oppressed and attacked Muslims globally in the name of 9/11.
So mourn we shall…and forget, we shall not…

that needed to be said…
I have to agree with you here. By the way, the true figure of people killed in wars allegedly justified by 9/11 is 2.5 million.
