Thoughts on the 11th September
Today is the fifth anniversary of the 11th September 2001 attacks on the USA, and the first of the wankblogs has started shedding its tears. Time for a dose of reality. . .

Four years ago the Exile was chatting to an American about the upcoming first anniversary and this fellow wondered how Mexico would commemorate the event. The Exile replied that it wouldn't; that the USA is a foreign country and that Mexico was not involved in either the event or its aftermath.

Mexican television had run wall to wall coverage of the attacks as they happened, but within a week the country's TV services had gone back to their daily diet of soap operas and the like. Thus the Exile was quite correct when he said that Mexico would treat the anniversary as just another day.

Clearly the date is important to Americans and their Quislings in Britain. However for the rest of us the 11th September is just another date in the calender.

I second that. But just like with religion, we have to pay some professional attention to this essentially irrelevant shit, simply because the busy little beavers of fascism are hard at work against the rest of us -- using this crap as camouflage cover.
