Today we ALL mourn and honor the loss of over 3000 plus of our fellow humans who passed on that fateful day 12 years ago. It’s a sad and reflective day indeed.
Coming from over 90 countries, those lost represented the majority of the planet and demonstrated how close we are as a species; that we are not so disconnected, not so different from one another. In fact, it demonstrated that we are one. We’re all human beings.
And the immediate response from around the world was absolutely amazing. Each country one by one came to America to offer its condolences, heartfelt love, and care for the great loss on that day. It really was a new world order.
And on September 12th, U.S. President George W. Bush had the whole world with them. We were going to find out who did this and punish them. Everyone was on board. There was no country in the world that was against going after the perpetrators of our human condition.
U.S. President George W. Bush had the greatest goodwill capital to spend that any one leader has ever had in their hand. It was the greatest opportunity to bring everyone together that the world has ever known. It was the opportunity not only of a lifetime but the greatest opportunity in world history.
And so what did the U.S. President do?
Well, one year after the event, the world’s worst salesman managed to piss off almost every country and human around the world by following his Neo Con PNAC handlers and lying to everyone about launching wars in the name of 9/11 that had nothing to do with 9/11 whatsoever.
All he had to do was do a “thank you” tour around the world visiting each country and thanking them for their support and he would have gone down as the greatest leader in world history turning us vs. them into all of us.
Instead, With the whole world in his hand, he spits on them and turned the greatest opportunity into hell on earth whereby the U.S.A. is now the most mistrusted nation on the planet; a known liar, criminal, spy, and thief turning the good American people in pariahs around the world. Shame on this man and his handlers! What a disgrace!
Yes, twelve years on, we all honor the loss on the day. But let us not forget how 9/11 was not only hi-jacked by the mentally ill who flew those planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and into the ground in Pennsylvania but that it was also hi-jacked by the mentally deranged who choose to dirty pitch the world into a decade of darkness for profits and power.
So today, we honor the lost and mourn the greatest missed opportunity in world history. We suffer on…..
