You can check out 911research and it will show you pictures of the pentagon ... and give you some of the evidence we have on what happened that day.

This war, started and perpetuated by lies, needs to be stopped. Too many Americans have lost their lives for no reason!

While it is good to read all the above comments from people who are aware of the havoc this administration is wreaking on the entire planet, I am VERY frustrated by the lack of awareness and the acceptance or denial by many Americans. They have become so spoiled and isolated here that they refuse to acknowledge the reality that is unfolding around them. What more is it going to take ???

I am also frustrated by how Americans are in denial. It's like they are spectators to what's unfolding before them but aren't actually involved. I try to explain to people, at work for instance, and they look at me with a blank stare or they say "we can't do anything".. If we don't do anything who is? Our children? Our grand-children? If that's the case we might as well kiss the human race goodbye. The earth is not going to wait another few generations. That is my main concern, people just don't realize the danger that we are in with this Administration and I'm afraid that when they finally "get it" it's going to be at the point of no return. I bet the dinosaurs thought they were above the laws and balance of nature too.

Thanks for the information, Bush is laji!fuck him.
