No, I don't 9/11 was a scam I believe some of the best patriots and smartest Americans died in the strike (you don't jump of skyscrapers for nothing), there are terrorist strikes on American soil every day, it would have been a lot worse if 9/11 never happened there would have been a lot more terrorist strikes than there was if we had never killed the terrorists (the attacks would be smaller, but much higher in supply). Anyone see the Boston Blast that would be a lot more common, as in every day. You say that is was a scam, then why was a plane heading the white house, just than god for those true patriots in that plane RIP.

You might want to take this to the forums to gather opinions.
If you want to actually debate this I'd be glad to (I've had five already in case that is an issue), however due to language barriers I suggest a rule of no one voting on spelling and grammar.

Opinions: 9/11 was not the excuse for the Iraq war, but it was the excuse/justification for the Afghanistan war. To say it was an excuse, does not change the attacks having been quite real and deadly.

Are you asking a question or are you debating? But yes, I think it was an excuse for revenge against Al-Khaida, whatever his name is, because he tried to have George Bush's dad killed. The whole Bush Administration was bull anyway. Everyone knows it.
