R.I.P. The 2976 American people that lost their lives on 9/11 and R.I.P. the 48,644 Afghan and 1,690,903 Iraqi and 35000 Pakistani people that paid the ultimate price for a crime they did not commit

Can we also speak about the number of American soldiers that came back from these wars and commited suicide, because they couldn’t cope with what they experienced? A number already significantly higher than people who actually died in the attacks. Basically, the American government, in the act of “avenging” those lost in the twin towers, killed more Americans indirectly by its actions.

By no means do I want to belittle the victims of 9/11 and the event itself. But maybe one should start to quietly remember those fallen (ALL OF THEM wordlwide), instead of using the date as a shtick to constantly rally people into war-mongering for “conflicts” that for the longest time have nothing to do with 9/11 anymore.

Just a thought.
