Here is yet another reason to love this forum! It seems that most folks in this group like to really crack the books and go to the ends of the earth to get to the truth. It's just one of the reasons I like it here. So, what's the issue? My wife is a discussion group nut. Sometimes she discusses a subject with me to sort of get my take on things. This morning my wife showed me a bit of history I did not know, and now I am so glad to be confronted with the truth about 9/11. I am only going to paraphrase and I can't release a name and don't try to figure out who because they're not here....yet. It seems that 9/11 was indeed a terrible thing in which thousands of soldiers were left by the terrorists to lay and bleed to death! Now you too know what really happened! I do agree with the " historians" post though, that I too hope this Never happens in the United States again. Kind of like the gal on U-tube who apparently had two or three accidents at deer crossings, so she complained to a guy on the radio about it. She contended that if they would move the signs to a slower and safer place, the deer would cross there instead of where she's been slamming into them. Yes, I know the deer thing might not be a military topic but I just had fold that in for kicks. Anyone else have some other "Conflict history," we should all get our note pads out for?
