And you have used that same excuse since what, 1947? Please that excuse is so thin it is transparent.
Let’s see you have Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Yemen, and The U.A.E., but since May, 1948 all they have done was avoid helping their “fellow” Ay-rabs as one here has labelled them.
Not one has offered any space or a helping hand of any sort, and that is all because of the United States?
I’m sure you are correct, but I haven’t been able to find out how, please explain how and why.

Why would I celebrate? Those buildings were filled with mostly foreign nationals. Not Texans like yourself.

My "buddies" - right. I think you are the only one taking the painful end of the truth personally.

Besides - I thought GW was a buddy of 'yours' - being the neighbouring ranch n' all.

That question you should be directing at Haliburton.

Short snippet from wikipedia.org

1990s
  • Following the end of the Gulf War, the Pentagon, led by then Defense Secretary Dick Cheney, paid Halliburton subsidiary Brown & Root Services over $8.5 million to study the use of private military forces with American soldiers in combat zones.[8]
  • Thomas H. Cruikshank, who served as chairman and CEO from 1989 until 1995, was replaced by Dick Cheney.
  • In the aftermath of Operation Desert Storm in Kuwait in 1991, Halliburton crews helped bring 320 burning oil wells under control.
  • In the early 1990s Halliburton was found to be in violation of federal trade barriers in Iraq and Libya, having sold these countries dual-use oil drilling equipment and, through its former subsidiary, Halliburton Logging Services, sending six pulse neutron generators to Libya. After having pleaded guilty, the company was fined $1.2 million, with another $2.61 million in penalties.[9]
  • In the Balkans conflict in the 1990s, Kellogg Brown-Root (KBR) supported U.S. peacekeeping forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Hungary with food, laundry, transportation and other lifecycle management services.
  • In 1998 Halliburton merged with Dresser Industries, which included Kellogg. Prescott Bush was a director of Dresser Industries, which is now part of Halliburton. Former United States president George H. W. Bush worked for Dresser Industries in several positions from 1948–1951, before he founded Zapata Corporation.

There has indeed been little in the way of 'progression' in terms of peace amongst the Arab nations. Regardless of American intervention.

Do you know why?
Does anyone have the courage to say why is that?

While there were some foreign nationals in those buildings, most, by a wide margin were U.S. citizens............. You really need to get your story straight.

WikiAnswers - How many people died in the September 11 2001 attacks

This will give you at least an idea of the magnitude.

Does that make you any happier?
