Most of the kids celebrating were probably somewhere between 8 and 14 when the 9/11 attack occurred. It must have been a very strange and unsettling event for them. Who knows what angst has built up in them since that day and how satisfying it may have been to release it in song and celebration.
That's all true, Finn. Why do you never consider the angst that has built up in the same aged children from Iraq and Afghanistan who have been used and badly abused [somehow 'abused' just doesn't quite capture it, but you know what I mean] for years, and not just in one localized area, New York, but all over their country.
They have seen, repeatedly, their families slaughtered, they themselves often get to play with cluster bombs and breath depleted uranium spread by the US and the UK.
But you know, it's not only not you, there's rarely any Americans saying these things, talking about how much the other side has suffered, for, do I have to remind you again, two illegal wars started against people who had done nothing at all to the US, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Come on, really, where is the sense of shame?
If the old canard about the US doing this for "the citizens of these nations, the poor, the downtrodden" was true, you would expect to see a lot of commiseration with the travails of these people, a lot of concern expressed for their sorrows, and yet, we see none.
You've really gotta ask yourselves, why is that? It's totally incomprehensible.
