Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for that poem, gives some perspective on things.
Quite a fight here last night. It was like a contest for the highest position in our PN hiërarchy.:)

Aviation has always been a point of interest for me and what really happened on 9/11 is for sure one of the things I really want to know.
I did myself a 'replay' of the plane-trajects with a flight-sim on my computer. Only after hours of trial and error I could fly my machine in one of the towers. Hitting the Pentagon the way it was done was impossible for me on the sim. But I'm not a pilot, just a computerdesk-amateur.

So, there are questions about what exactly happened. The way the US-authority's handled the aftermath raised more questions than answers.
But I do not really care who's behind all this, who's manipulating who. They are all of the same calibre, Bush, Bin Laden and their allies or followers.

The real danger are the fences being build around our democracy. In this my disappointment about Europe grows when I see the USA political leadership is hardly criticezed. An open and strong democracy would deal with technical details in no time.
