A little OT, but this is a video I thought some of you guys might be interested in. It's called 'Before You Enlist', and is about the flip side of Army life. I supposed if one young musician on this site who is thinking of joining up sees it and reconsiders their options, it will be worth posting:

You guys think I should start a new thread for it?

There is no doubt that the administration used 9/11 to influence the citizens of the US to get behind the Iraq War, which is utterly deplorable.
You dismiss everything that's labeled a conspiracy theory regarding this topic, yet you say there is "no doubt" that the US government tricked its people into going to war? That is a conspiracy theory.

Yeah. And made a documentary about it:

Actually, that's not a theory. That's an opinion. I never said anyone 'tricked' anybody. It is my opinion that they preyed upon people's fears. And they continue to do so.

Second, I don't 'dismiss' anything. Like I said, I've done the research. Looked at things from both sides. There is an avalanche of eyewitnesses, experts in ballastics, demolition, structural engineers, pilots, forensics, etc., who all line up behind the generally accepted perception of what happened that day. The CTists have not a single expert anywhere to back up their claims. Why can't they get one structural engineer or controlled demolition expert, just one, to back up their claims about what happened to the WTC?

I'm gonna check out your documentary now. January 18, 2003, seemed like such an amazing day for public protest and demonstration. Amazing, how it just meant nothing, in the end, for poicy. But I am still glad we have that symbol of resistance. I was in San Francisco that day too.

And noborders, since I think you and I are on somewhat of the same page, at least concerning the war. Check out these George Monbiot articles concerning the 9/11 conspiracies, and their adjunct effect on other more important causes.

I'd bet that even if it was proven that the US government was behind 9/11, the PNAC people would argue that the government had to do it to get the people behind the war effort that is so essential to them - for the "good of the world".... and I bet a good 20% of the population would eat it up too...
