The day the symbols of American imperialism (Twin Towers) and American militarism (Pentagon) were attacked; also the day most average American citizens realized there were real-life consequences for complacency and apathy in the face of criminal policies carried out by their government.

This was also a significant moment in modern history because it marked the first time ever members of the oppressed nations actually fought back by striking at the center of world trade and finance. The World Trade Center and the Pentagon, both legitimate targets according to the very same standards of the US military, were attacked because the terrorists saw them as the main source of Western economic exploition and oppression of the Third World (through corporate globalization and military intervention).

Finally, it should be said that contrary to popular thought, terrorism is NOT a weapon of the weak. In fact, it is most often a weapon of the strong, and it has been practiced by powerful states for thousands of years, except they never call it "terrorism", but "liberation", "counter-terrorism", "defense", or some other self-justifying label. Examples include Rome, Nazi Germany, Israeli "Defense" Forces, and the US State Department.
A captured pirate was brought before Alexander the Great. "How dare you molest the sea?" asked Alexander. "How dare you molest the whole world?" the pirate replied, and continued: "Because I do it with a little ship only, I am called a thief; you, doing it with a great navy, are called an emperor."

The day that people are already starting to forget... September 11th should NEVER be forgotten... How could anyone forget the day that all those people lose their lives in a senseless act of violence by Jihadists who have no care for human life, all they give a fuck about is "Allah". The media never reminds you about september 11th... They never talked about the familys of the people who died they might have shown their pictures here or there but they never interviewed them, showed them what pain they are in... If any of you have truely experienced pain then you would NEVER forget september 11th because of the pain the friends and family of the people who died that day have... No physical pain can ammount to the emmotional pain of losing someone extremely close to you.
Never forget September 11th... The worst day in american history...
