Only losers would lack the common decency to respect the passing of innocent victims in such a tragedy and the solemn reverence that it deserves.

I was waiting for the usual suspects to turn this into yet another hate-America or hate-Trump thread. Your collective immaturity and lack of decorum makes your trashy efforts easy to predict.

Like the old saying goes, you can't fix stupid. A real tragedy, I will never forget.

never forget ? how could anyone forget something that has caused years of death and destruction worldwide. no one ever even mentioned why the towers were attacked, civilians killed were just collateral damage as far as the attackers were concerned . the towers contained many American banks ,traders ,consultants etc.
they were the target.
ironically the attackers were mainly Saudi, financed by Saudi money. and now the west and America supply the Saudi's with bombs to blow up children on buses in Yemen. todays Washington post headline.
The Trump administration vouches for its Saudi friends as civilians die in Yemen

the continuing repercussions of 9/11
the world is not my home, I'm just a passenger

Yes, it's amazing how little blowback came to the Saudis.

I understand there are a minority of Americans who think it was an inside job carried out by the American government. Presumably that view is seen as repulsive to ordinary Americans?

Well at least we turned up....Nobody else paying their respects????? Shame on them.....
Allow me to pay my respects and relate the following:

I flew from Ulan Bator, Mongolia to Tokyo on September 5, 2001. On the 6th, I toured the Kitty Hawk which was then berthed at the U.S. Naval Base in Yokosuka, 90 minutes south of Tokyo. I had several meetings at the base and enjoyed an evening on The Haunch.

Then, on the front pages of the English-language newspapers in Japan and South Korea (I believe this was September 7, 2001) there were articles warning Americans to avoid patronizing restaurants, bars, and any venues known to be frequented by Americans. Front page, above the fold, of every English-language newspaper. At the time, my local expat friends said it was unheard of.

The base at Yokosuka went on high alert and sailors and marines were confined to quarters. I don't know if the same thing happened at other U.S bases in Japan, but I took the train back down from where I was staying in Roppongi to see for myself: the base was locked up tight and my remaining meetings cancelled. The Haunch was deserted.

I returned to Tokyo with a bad feeling. I absolutely love Japan, especially Tokyo, but I called Korean Air and changed my return flight to Los Angeles. I was ticketed to fly out of Narita on September 11, 2001, but instead arrived home on September 10th. I woke up jet-lagged the next morning when a ringing phone brought the news of what was happening in New York City and elsewhere.

Shell-shocked, my Chinese-American wife and I could only think to find our American flag; I planted it next to the curb. Within an hour, every house on our cul-de-sac had done the same. Democrats, Republicans, independents, Mexican-American, Chinese-American, whatever.

U.S. Intelligence strongly suspected we were going to get hit, but mistakenly thought it would be in Asia, and not the homeland. They had the timing right, but didn't know the target.

Back in Cali I have a copy of the newspaper article from Japan, but maybe this info can be found via Goggle. It was briefly reported in the aftermath of 9/11, but quickly forgotten.

Anyway, R.I.P. to those who perished on 9/11--especially the First Responders. Condolences to the families who lost loved ones.
