I'm glad he's dead. Hope he burns in the fiery pits of of the underworld for the rest of eternity. Even then, he wont feel all the pain he inflicted upon others and their loved ones. A man like him has no honer and isn't worth spitting on - much less mourning over. You can hardly consider him to be a "human being". No rational human being would do the things he did. I remember 9/11 just as if it was yesterday. And I was only in 5th grade. What I saw in the news that day was deeply distressing to anyone who watched. People were dying on national television. It wasnt a movie. It was reality.Those images will be permanently etched in my mind.
People are CELEBRATING because it's an iconic moment. Because it's a step forward. I'm sure people celebrated when Hitler died.
If you want to talk ethics take a look at this first:
At least 2,985 people died in the September 11, 2001, attacks, including:
2,966 victims [2,998 as of Spring 2009]
All but 13 people died on that day. The remaining 13 later died of their wounds. One person has died since the attacks, of lung cancer. It is suspected to have been caused by all the debris from the Twin Towers.
There were 266 people on the four planes:
American Airlines Flight 11 (crashed into the WTC): 92 (including five terrorists)
United Airlines Flight 175 (crashed into the WTC): 65 (including five terrorists)
American Airlines Flight 77 (crashed into the Pentagon): 64 (including five terrorists)
United Flight 93 (downed in Shanksville, PA): 45 (including four terrorists)
There were 2,595 people in the World Trade Center and near it, including:
343 NYFD firefighters and paramedics
23 NYPD police officers
37 Port Authority police officers
1,402 people in Tower 1
614 people in Tower 2
658 people at one company, Cantor Fitzgerald
1,762 New York residents
674 New Jersey residents
1 NYFD firefighter killed by a man jumping off the top floors of the Twin Towers
There were 125 civilians and military personnel at the Pentagon.
1,609 people lost a spouse or partner on 9/11. More than 3,051 children lost parents.
And that's JUST on 9/11. Ever since, about 51,800 Americans have been killed. And it's not just Americans who have suffered, it's people from all over the world as well.
But unfortunately, I do agree that his death wont have much of an impact on the so called "War Against Terror".
