NY World Trade Center 11/09 attack, What do you think about it? Mysterious was the 11/09 air attack of world trade center, don't you think that it is strange that the 1st power in the world cannot expect that, don't you think that Bush knew that something will happend but he didnt anything! Your opinion is IMPORTANT !

I'm pretty sure Bush didn't know about incoming attack. Personally, as an observer from distance, I think he cares about USA. But even if not, the attack like that caused him a lot of troubles as a president and politic. Why would he want it? It was or would be, more or less, a political suicside: knowing and doing nothing. I don't believe he knew. I remeber the day when it happened. I came back from school at 3 PM (9 AM in New York) and my parents were watching TV. My first thought was that it's some kind of catastrophic movie... I was 12 at the time, but I understood it very good: many innocent people died. Not only in WTC towers, not only in planes, but also those who tried to rescue them... Firemen and others... I remember I cried that night. I don't understand people who do such horrible things. But also I don't understand wars... Well, I'm Polish Roman Catholic. My nation suffered a lot form wars and occupation (I mean communism as well). But I don't know what to think on the topic of war in Iraq. From one side - every war provides suffering and deaths of innocents. From the other side - the Saddam Hussein's regime provided suffering as well. I really don't know what to think of it. But Tej is right - from what I know Islam is a religion of love and peace. The terrorists are fanatics that misintepret the Quran. And I really don't understand why everybody hates each other. What's interesting: why Buddhists and other religion which are totally different from monoteistic religions can cooperate peacefully with them, and Chrisitans, Jews and Muslims, who believes all in the same one God, can't stand each other? As I said before, I'm Roman Catholic, but it never occured to me to depreciate anyone just because he or she believes in different way! Can we just live and let others live in their way?

As an answer to Catisse: Buddhism etc. don't believe in gods, that's why they can live in peace. Muslims, Jews and Christians all believe they are right and they all think they need to "spread their faith" unlike buddhism/hinduism where spreading the faith isn't considered as important as in the abrahamic religions. Basically, the world would be better off without abrahamic religions.

There were a lot of victims and a lot of damage. I'm not sure whether that attack can be described as criminal and terrorist or not, cuz Bush is criminal himself and he caused the death of many innocent people. Also wht happened in USA on September 11 does not justify his cruel and inhuman crimes in mid-east countries nor his control of the petrol resources. Wht I'm sure of is that Islam is a merciful religion and has nothing to do with terrorism, and the essence of the Quran is human relations and human dignity-the opposite of terrorism. I hope that one day we will be able to live in a peaceful and civilized world.

Your question seems pretty strange.Here in China,I haven't heard anything like" Bush knew what would happen but didn't do anything".Personally,I don't think Bush dare do so,he does care about his people though his way of dealing with some problems seems extreme.That's exactly what I know about Bush.But you see I'm only a teenager,I'm not able to think about political problems deeply,but I do care about world peace.Whether the terrorist activities took place in the US or anywhere else,one who knew the incoming danger but didn't say it out cannot be forgiven as well as the terrorists.

i think,first of all,Bush definitely cares about the national interest of usa,and terrists atteck coukd give him a perfect excuse to annonce a war against the mid-east countrys ,and hold control of the petrol resouce.but as a member of human,needless to say the president of the united states,bush doesn't have a reason to hurt his people so badly.so i don't think bush has hidden the truth. i still trust him and the leadership of usa
