It is time for 'United 93'

It is time. At the risk of possibly fanning some rather harsh, terse and direct emotional flames -- it is time. The movie about the heroes of United 93 is due for release in the US by the end of this month. It is time. While this has been mentioned before in this blogspot, perhaps it is time for another reminder.

During this week when there were other scandals that had hit different parts of the US [some to be mentioned at another time], the death penalty phase of the trial of the only person to be charged with being a conspirator in 9/11 has started. To hear some of what was said by not just those who lost family and friends on the planes and in the towers, but also the survivors was to bring back a day that many of us thought would not happen to the US again. While Pearl Harbor is similar in that it was an attack on a US territory, as we all know, 9/11 was more sinister. More evil -- with the faces of the bastards who comiitted these acts on tapebefore they boarded the planes. The stares of those who supposedly practice the 'religion of peace'.

Peace my ass. These vermin and others like them took a sick, twisted amount of joy in seeing tapes and hearing about the World Trade Center being destroyed and the Pentagon being hit. Plus these little sh*ts have vowed to take aim at the US again at some point.

Now if this movie does inflame some here in the US, good. If it spurs action to take political correctness out of how we handle the borders, even better. If it will mean that we will be even more vigilant about keeping our skies, oceans and cities safe -- excellent [if some of you are about to say 'this will lead to racial profiling' and 'we will then persecute people because of religion, etc' -- get over it and get over yourself. If it was any other group that had comminted these henious acts on 9/11/01, very few reading this would object to proflling, detention, expulsion or even the death penalty/extermination for them].

If you look at page for the film, there are two simple words in the background. Never Forget. Keep that in mind folks.

[The best background piece about the people of Flight 93 can be found at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette . Others have talked about the passengers -- ranging from Michael Savage to John McLaughlin. However, this is straightforward and brings it home. Never Forget. It is time to remember]

4/16/06 Another voice did stand up with regard to those on 93. Neil Young [yes, as in Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young]. The words of Todd Beamer were put on record, not for profit, but as another reminder:

Let's Roll - Neil Young

I know I said I love you
I know you know it's true
I've got to put the phone down
And do what we gotta do
One's standing in the aisleway
Two more at the door
We've got to get inside there
Before they kill some more

Time is running out
Let's roll
Time is running out
Let's roll

No time for indecision
We've got to make a move
I hope that we're forgiven
For what we gotta do
How this all got started
I will never understand
I hope someone can fly this thing
And get us back to land

Time is running out...

No one has the answer
But one thing is true
You've gotta turn on evil
When it's coming after you
You gotta face it down
And when it tries to hide
You gotta go in after it
And never be denied

Time is running out...

Let's roll for freedom
Let's roll for love
Goin' after Satan
On the wings of a dove
Let's roll for justice
Let's roll for truth
Let's not let our children grow up
Fearful in their youth

Right on Todd and Right On, Neil
