"Terrorism has replaced Communism as the rationale for the militarization of the country [America], for military adventures abroad, and for the suppression of civil liberties at home. It serves the same purpose, serving to create hysteria." .. (Howard Zinn)

I never considered it a replacement of the U.S communist containment policy and its funny how 9/11 happened a few years after the fall of the soviet union and the “cold war” there was big bad to go after and we’d devoted all this $$$ in military spending and with that day that spending, and aggression could be justified again rather be questioned  View Larger

For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media
