The legacy of 9/11

This is a good time to reflect upon the fact that if Mohammed Atta and his band of brainwashed lunatics (and if you subscribe to conspiracy theories about how 9/11 was an "inside job," you must read no further) hadn't crashed those planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon five years ago, Charles Johnson would still be languishing in the obscurity he so richly deserves.

In other words: Little Green Footballs would still be a quirky, obscure little web diary of very little interest to anyone except system administrators, web-design geeks, and lite-jazz fans -- and certainly not worth taking the trouble to watch. So this blog wouldn't exist either, obviously.

As far as LGF and the rest of the wingnutosphere is concerned, the reason they rarely indulge in speculation about what the world would be like if 9/11 had never occurred is quite simple: it's because 9/11 has been very good to them. Very, very good indeed.

So fuck you, Mohammed.

P.S.: While you watch Bush & Co milk the 5th anniversary of 9/11 for all it's worth today, you might like to ponder some of the other victims of that fateful day (warning, PDF file!)...

Interesting to note that LGF'er Realwest hasn't felt the need to wheel out his lies about his 79 year old Iwo Jima hero dad dying in the WTC saving people.

More interesting to note is that no-one there thinks it worthy of comment - given the day that's in it - and the talk of 'defiling' 9-11.

The diagram is a bit off. It fails to mention the war in Darfur and Southern Sudan. The Americans have backed particularly the Fur people, calling "genocide" on response to an armed rebellion by this Animist tribe to Sudanese supposedly Islamist rule. It parallels the backing of the losing side in the Somalian conflict and now they are calling for armed involvement by foreign troops. Deaths from this conflict are about 150,000 plus, they need a bigger map

You should have broken it off atthe word "anyone". It's 2012 and you nailed it. I came upon it by mistake thinking that Little Green Footballs was probably some worded pseudo for "lesbian/gay freedom".
Which, judging in light of the more current posts and Mr. Johnson's change of tune, may be evidence of a personal episode in his life.
