9/11 was the THIRD largest terror incident in the history of mankind

Even though people seem to forget...or want to deny it as such...#1 and #2 belong to the USA dropping the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which killed between 129,000 and 226,000 people, most of them civilians. It does not matter that a war was going on...this was still an act of terror aimed at civilians. Yes, 9/11 was horrible...and we should not forget...but don't forget the the U.S.A. murdered thousands more that were gone in an instant...men, women, and children...whose only 'crime' were being Japanese. Those bombs were not 'military strikes'...they were acts of terror. Plain and simple.

Military targets are one thing, though it is sad anyone has to die...civilian targets are an entirely different thing (although yes, Germany holds the record for most civilian targets killed during a war, the USA holds it for the number killed in one moment)

@myklj999 And these are humbling statistics. To realize that our nation is right at the top of the ladder, for the mass killings of innocent civilians:( My father told me things that went on, when he was stationed on Okinawa. All those people wanted was a little bit of food, to fill their stomachs!
@myklj999 There's a show on right now about the events of Sept 11th at the Gander (Newfoundland) airport. The planes came in one after the other after the other. And they didn't have the infrastructure to handle such air traffic, but they did it. And then there were no air craft left on the radar to account for.

This day is even remembered in Riga, Latvia. When I lived there they had a building also known are the World Trade Center and I always felt funny whenever I walked past there Only five floors but still the World Trade Center.
