Let's not ignore the root causes of the assymetrical warfare event of September 11th. We need to appreciate the nuanced factors behind this tragedy and try to change our behavior so that in the future we can be more sensitive to the plight of the developing world.

Interviews with bin Laden reveal one main cause of his attack to be the secular nature of America.
So, from now on, American women should wear veils. Pornography must be banned. Prohibition must be reenacted. Technology and the wanton decadence it affords must be stopped. To do otherwise would be callously insensitive to the underprivileged victims of the developing world like Osama bin Laden, born into heart breaking poverty. Not to mention it might get us attacked again.

Sure, sure, America gives tons of foreign aid to Egypt. And we've sent humanitarian aid to Afghanistan up until the attack. But it's not enough. How can we indulge in luxurious excesses like comic books and internet message boards when other people in the world are oppressed?

America should get over the alleged attack already. I'm sick of all this crying and moaning, as if terrorism hasn't been plaguing Europe for years. It's like a mother crying more for the death of her baby than for the death of someone else's. Where the hell does SHE get off?!

And Falwell! We all know that he represents every mainstream American of faith. Therefore all Americans of faith are blithering idiots. When will these fools learn there is no Good or Evil?! It's all the same shade of grey! Murdering civilians is ethically the same as not murdering civilians. Falwell should be shut up for good! Speaking against abortion is the same as bombing clinics. Everyone knows that speech is the same as deed.

Speaking of which, Steranko is a no good Censor!! He's the lowest, most despicable thing in the world, because he infringes upon the creativity of artists! And look what comes of that:
Kirby, Barks, Ditko, Steranko, Herriman, Gould, Schulz, Eisner, Raymond, Caniff, Moore, all these no talent hacks slaved beneath the fascistic yoke of other people's censorship, be they editors or owners of the characters. You know Caniff was dying to show tits, and it only would've improved his art, but some small minded syndicate boss imposed his restrictions and values on the hapless artist.

The result: not one of these pigs can hold a candle to the towering achievement of Daniel Clowes, owner/creator/genius. His mastery of the medium is unchallenged and hahahaha, I crack up every time just thinking about all those sweaty foreheads! And mmmmmmm those delicious tits. Brilliant.

CNN's reporting has been atrocious. How about the fake footage of our Palestinian brothers celebrating the death of "innocent" men, women and children? Thank the Goddess that Cockburn straightened them out! He'd never stoop as low as CNN; reporting unverified propaganda!

All this flag waving on CNN makes me sick! We enlightened comic book readers should band together, stand up and be counted! Start wearing signs in your community to show how you feel: "America Deserved It!" "We Had It Coming!" and "The Chickens Have Come Home to Roost!" Especially you New Yorkers. Be brave! Stand up for your beliefs! Don't cower like those chicken hawk America lovers.

Patriotism is a lie. I owe America nothing. I hope they have Osama bin Laden kill Captain America. And a room full of babies. Now THAT'S a comic I would read. Either that, or make Cap a homeless Palestinian drug-addicted pimp/terrorist/victim of the Pax Americana hegemony. They should only show the ugliest, most heinous side of American life. That would be cool. I hate beauty. And love.

The best thing that ever happened to comics was the gritty, dark, abnormal psychology realism. Look at the positive long term effect it's had on industry sales.

And how about those firemen? What saps. Actually throwing their lives away on complete strangers. If I were there I would've ridden the fire truck north with the siren on! Everyone knows we all act from self interest. These firemen didn't nobly lay down their lives. They were responding to vestigial imprints of the subconscious to preserve the tribe. There is no virtue or nobility. How could there be? After all, I'm not virtuous or noble.

Anyway, I wasn't surprised in the least. I hate to say I told you so, America. We dissed the world with the Kyoto treaty and the Racism conference. Those sleepers would have aborted their year-long missions if we had only shown more respect for our global co-habitators. Or if Gore had won. But will we learn? No. Stupid Americans!

The only thing worse than Americans are Americans united and thinking that they are right. Nazis thought they were right too, so obviously anyone who thinks they are right must be wrong! Nazis liked beer too. Good thing Prohibition will be coming back. And not a moment too soon. Thanks, Osama bin Laden! Show us the way, brother!

I'm an American.
I hate America. And other Americans.
All Americans are stupid except for me and my comic book reading friends. And then only the ones that read the comic books I like.

Hope not.
I thought about posting in the Gutters, but I was responding to the first terrorist attack thread and to Steranko's thread, both of which were topside.

And I didn't want to derail Steranko's thread, so I kept it separate.

I was gonna give some long winded angry response but then I stopped reading this and decided not to give up my time with this guy. I suggest everyone else does the same. Dude obviously just needs some attention cause his mother didn't hug him enough.

My favorite part was the bit about Daniel Clowe's "towering achivement." Not to mention those wonderful sweat-beads. Bwah-hah-hah!
