    People die but that doesnt mean 9/11 happens, it was a history making atrocity carried out by suicidal terrorists, that doesnt happen everyday.

    and this post is kind of funny coming from Mr "let's look how many Iraqis have died!" as well... burning oil wells isn't exactly an environmentally friendly endeavor either

    If you're so concerned about overpopulation do your part, don't celebrate the deaths of other people- that's just uncalled for... what you've done in this thread is nearly as insensitive as showing up at the funeral for a younger person and saying "at least this is helping reduce the strain on the earth's resources!"... there's a time and place for showing concern, but this thread isn't that time or place for stuff of that sort :rolli:

    There's a lot better ways to reduce population and it's strain on resources than taking some macabre glee in the death of civilians in a terrorist attack
    im not celebrating death of anyone.

    yes there is better ways of reducing population, but those are not going to happen. better way than reducing population would be food production more efficient in a way that wouldnt destroy the croplands, eliminating big companies whos only objective is to make as much profit as possible without thinking others(this would require big changes in politics), offer free birth control to everyone in this planet etc etc. but since this is not going to happen either, its better that people are atleast killing each others..

    maybe i should have picked up other topic for posting these statements, but i would have got the same kind of responses in others topics also.

    Ah, yeah.. sorry. I was actually talking about the people of the world in general. I guess it doesn't make it ethnocentric. Attention from those who lost loved ones seems reasonable but what about those who aren't involved? I just don't like nations....and boundaries...it influences segregation of attention.

    So it's prime distinction is "suicidal terrorists"? And this makes it globally significant?

    Yeah we're just hanging on your every word because you're totally saying things that no one has ever said before, and things that we don't already know. That combined with your totally objective opinions makes this a real life lesson for all of us, I'm sure.

    See, that's what kills me about how things are now. Remember when the attacks 1st happened? People from many other nations were grieving and flying American flags in honor of those lost. That's not even going into the fact that it was the World Trade Center and that there were many victims from other countries that died in that attack.

    Such a great tragedy, but so many people from all over the world and so many different walks of life within even our country banded together to support each other in mourning. From that great tragedy came one of the finest moments for humanity, as far as I see...Damn shame that's already been forgotten.

    No I get what your saying, I think we have an over population problem as well, but there are better solutions you know. You were just really insensitive thats all.

    you wouldn't have gotten as offended of responses elsewhere... this is a memorial thread that you brought it up in... it's completely inappropriate. Not to mention, by your rationale, the death of children would be the best because you're stopping them before they reproduce... people in their mid-life or so, as many of those who died in the WTC attacks, have already done so, so their death matters a hell of a lot less in the realm of environmental impact. The fact that you're insinuating that it's better for large amounts of people to die in some countries than others doesn't go over well either because it's not like we select where we are born- I didn't chose to be born in the US!

    I would never say that it's fine for people to die because of their environmental impact... Free birth control and zoning restrictions and preventing the developing countries from burning a shit-ton of coal should be a greater concern
