    I suppose the Germans took aim of Poland on 1 September 1939.

  2. Delta

    Airplanes taking aim — of course and it aligns with the complementary narrative of cars mowing down people. Now could there be any common element to these phenomena? No, nothing to see here folks. Move on. (/sarc)

  3. ACTOldFart

    Also Teddy Kennedy’s car being maliciously resposible for a certain event at Chappaquidick

  4. stackja

    NYT took aim at history for the ignorant.

  8. Winston

    Cassie of Sydney – it’s off to reeducation camp for you.

    Germans did no such thing in this Newspeak. Panzer tanks, Nebelwerfer artillery and Stuka dive bombers ‘took aim’. Probably best to not even mention what they took aim at or why while you are at it.

  9. lotocoti

    I suppose the Germans took aim of Poland on 1 September 1939.

    No.
    Tanks took aim.

  10. Old School Conservative

    Don’t forget the downplaying of evil with the misleading “over 2000 died” falsification.
    Sounds just a little better than the truthful “nearly 3000 people were killed that day”.

  11. C.L.

    The Western left cheered the attack, that’s the truth.
    Peter FitzSimons spoke eloquently on their behalf two weeks after 9/11:

    Hello. We are sorry. We are desperately sorry that the world has now moved to the point where it is on the edge of an abyss from which there can be no return. We accept that such hate as drove the planes into the World Trade Centre towers can only have come from incredible suffering, and we are desperately sorry for that suffering, even if we are yet to come to grips with its specific cause.

  12. Bruce

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear”

    Marcus Tullius Cicero

    Magic aeroplanes. They have the same view of guns. Simplistic thinking by intellectually deprived cowards.

    Feel free to name the real evil of 9/11 right here…I’ll wait…

    Can’t wait to hear what religious conservatives think happened on 9/11…

  15. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Great insight there from Cicero, Bruce.
    Lots of traitors in the MSM these days.

  16. Roger

    We accept that such hate as drove the planes into the World Trade Centre towers can only have come from incredible suffering, and we are desperately sorry for that suffering, even if we are yet to come to grips with its specific cause.

    The creation of Isra3l is a crime which must be erased. Each and every person whose hands have become polluted in the contribution towards this crime must pay its price, and pay for it heavily.

    Osama Bin Laden, “Letter to America”, 2002.

    What do you think, Pete, should we throw Israel under the bus to appease the angry Mohametans?

  17. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    There is a particular fool infecting both areff’s thread on 9/11 and now this one.
    Says he’s waiting. At traitor’s gate?

  18. Dr Faustus

    Peter FitzSimons spoke eloquently on their behalf two weeks after 9/11:

    Prior to that strange comment, if I considered him at all, I thought of FitzSimmons as a bit of a joke: an oaf with intellectual pretensions, trading on a brief and undistinguished career as a Wallaby.

    But not toxic.

  19. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Magic aeroplanes. They have the same view of guns.

    Yep. My immediate thoughts too, Megan.
    Classic leftism. Never sheet home responsibility. Always use weasel words.

  20. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Americans don’t like to think of their Saudi buddies as the enemy

  21. Cassie of Sydney

    “What do you think, Pete, should we throw Israel under the bus to appease the angry Mohametans?”

    Well yes of course….the standard leftist line now is to blame those dam Joooos.

  22. stackja

    More silliness from Skip.

  23. cuckoo

    Just about the only non-crazy thing in the Age these days is the comics page. Yesterday’s Wizard of Id strip was a surprisingly moving, non-humorous commemoration of the 9/11 attacks. I’m surprised they let it run.

  24. Mother Lode

    Germans did no such thing in this Newspeak. Panzer tanks, Nebelwerfer artillery and Stuka dive bombers ‘took aim’.

    I heard that no one was more surprised than the Germans when Poland was invaded.

  25. Mother Lode

    “What do you think, Pete, should we throw Israel under the bus to appease the angry Mohametans?”

    They’re collectivists!

  26. Sean

    I guess that makes Peter Fitz a ‘victim blamer’

  27. candy

    Peter Fitz could always move to Afghanistan and give up his millions to fighting a cause over there.

    But he takes the fruits of Western civilisation living here and denounces it at the same time. How can he live with himself really after what he said.

    Feel free to name the real evil of 9/11 right here…I’ll wait…

    A certain religious sect, un-namible thank to excessive PC, common in the middle east and well known to despise other religions, was the “cause” of 9/11. We need to reciprocate and declare war against them – wipe the entire sect from the face of the planet, and destroy all copies of their “religious” texts.
    If such is unacceptable, then put up a big barbed-wire fence around the whole middle east and tell them “You’re not coming out until you’ve sorted your differences – nobody and nothing in or out until then”. (They act like children, we should treat them as such)
    I’m generally an extremely tolerant person, but these people have – and continue to – show their true colours, and they are the enemy of freedom.

  32. “some people did something”
    .
    Nah – some planes done sumfink.

  33. Robert Arnold

    Suggest Mark Steyn Mail Box “A Mockery of Justice” for a disturbing comment on 9/11.

  34. Kneel

    should we throw Israel under the bus to appease the angry Mohametans?

    No.
    We should treat them as they treat us – second class citizens, with no rights at all.
    Turn about is fair play, innit?

  35. Mother Lode

    I’m surprised they let it run.

    The cartoonist probably told them it was ‘ironic’.

  36. Tom

    Feel free to name the real evil of 9/11 right here…

    Like all leftards, you pretend not to see evil when it’s staring you in the face because the human trash who perpetrated it are your de facto military allies in your campaign to destroy the West.

    The difference between leftards and the rest of us is that we’re not tortured by demonic self-hatred.

  37. Rex Mango

    Can’t link to Steyn, but here is a real evil:

    If this is a war, there’s no agreement on what we’re up against: Terrorism? Islamic terrorism? Islamic extremism? Islam? Whatever it is, a president who, on the campaign trail, mocked his predecessor’s inability to use the words “radical Islam” himself eschewed all mention of the I-word today. September 11th 2001 was supposedly “the day everything changed” – if by “everything changed” you mean “the rate of mass Muslim immigration to the west doubled”. As that absurd statistic suggests, we are not where I thought we would be 16 years on: We run around fighting for worthless bits of barren sod like Helmand province in Afghanistan, while surrendering day by day some of the most valuable real estate on the planet, such as France and Sweden.

  38. C.L.

    Prior to that strange comment, if I considered him at all, I thought of FitzSimmons as a bit of a joke: an oaf with intellectual pretensions, trading on a brief and undistinguished career as a Wallaby.

    I’ve known a few blokes like FitzSimons. Boof-heads who marry good sorts in brain jobs. She either embraces the boofhead lifestyle or he is given a makeover. Guess which of those usually happens. So she throws out his Stubbies and thongs, makes him use deodorant, introduces him to couscous and toenail clippers. In the case of Wilkinson and FitzSimons, she nagged him into a job as a left-wing ‘writer’.

    What airplanes?
    Zero evidence.

    We’ve always thrown Israel under the bus to appease angry Mohametans. Can’t even imagine what you’re trying to say with such a zany and ignorant comment, but this IS the cat.

    We kept doing it right up until they flew planes into skyscrapers and continue to do it to this day.

    But I’m still waiting for someone in this thread to name the evil that happening on 9/11.

    Nothing like the evasions of religious conservatives and their supporters to make the mainstream media appear competent and non corrupt by comparison…

    18 Years have passed since the unlamented WTC towers selfishly impeded the paths of some aircraft taking a harmless joy flight over Manhattan

    Yes, those collectivist crackpots are that stupid and evil – and in five years time the fabricated headline above won’t be parody, it will be prophesy.

    Oh, hi Iampeter.

  54. Lee

    By the NYT’s line of reasoning, the Nazis didn’t kill Jews, the death camps and gas chambers did.

    Hard to believe that the NYT was once considered a serious, non-partisan newspaper.

    They also recently extolled the “virtues” of the Soviet Union over the contemporary U.S.A.

  55. Nob

    Peter is possibly another from the school that 9/11 was caused by theism, therefore Catholics and those other People of The Book.

    I can see Australia Day getting off the meathook here since it was boats that aimed at Sydney Cove, not people.

    Classic: self-awareness is at the root of this problem … mostly the lack thereof.

    Although the United States is allegedly a democracy with a rule of law, it has taken 17 years for public pressure to bring about the first grand jury investigation of 9/11. Based on the work of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth led by Richard Gage, first responder and pilots organizations, books by David Ray Griffen and others, and eyewitness testimony, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry has presented enough hard facts to the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York to force his compliance with the provisions of federal law that require the convening of a federal grand jury to investigate for the first time the attacks of September 11, 2001.

    This puts the US Justice (sic) Department in an extraordinary position. Every informed person is aware that elements of the US government were involved either in the perpetration of the 9/11 attacks or in a coverup of the attacks. There will be tremendous pressures on the US Attorney’s office to have the grand jury dismiss the evidence as an unpatriotic conspiracy theory or otherwise maneuver to discredit the evidence presented by the Lawyers’ Committee, or modify the official account without totally discrediting it.

    9/11: Steel Beams were turned into Dust Before Hitting the Ground

  67. Shane

    Its good to see that so many people from both sides of the fence know not only what happened, but more importantly the causes of that day’s events.
    Anyone with a brain would have lots of questions but no answers.
    Somehow or other during an official US defence dept wargaming scenario of a bunch of civilian planes were being hijacked, a bunch of mostly Saudi Arabians armed only with box cutters, somehow hijacked a number of commercial planes & then flew them into various targets, destroying all or parts of 4 buildings despite only 3 of these buildings being actually impacted by said planes.
    Subsequently & in payback at least 2 or more countries (but strangely enough, not Saudi Arabia the home of most of the hijackers), are invaded & destabilised at a cost of several trillion dollars to the US taxpayer & a species of literally hell on earth for those unfortunate indigenous inhabitants.
    (Normally Tony Abbott would be expected to have his role in this story questioned but instead we have PM Howard in the US on the actual spot in Washington on Der Tag.)
    Putin has complained for the past decade or so about how he was repeatedly yelling at the US that 911 was about to happen, the last time being 2 days before it happened, but was completely ignored.
    There is such disturbing high strangeness accompanying the 2 towers’ destruction like the series of pictures of the antennae on top of one of the 2 towers literally turning to dust & blowing away.
    Dr Judy Wood with her book ‘Where did the towers go’ seems to be the only one willing to go with the actual disturbing evidence.
    Meanwhile the official story remains a wild total conspiracy tale.

  68. Clam Chowdah

    Hello. We are sorry. We are desperately sorry that the world has now moved to the point where it is on the edge of an abyss from which there can be no return. We accept that such hate as drove the planes into the World Trade Centre towers can only have come from incredible suffering, and we are desperately sorry for that suffering, even if we are yet to come to grips with its specific cause.

    A beta male par excellence.

  69. PB

    Kind of like how “shots rang out” when the subject turns to ghetto crime.

  70. cuckoo

    Incredible. SBS tv news, in their coverage of the Ground Zero commemoration, showed part of Nicholas Haros’ scathing rebuke to Ilhan Omar (“somebody did something”) but topped and tailed it to exclude any mention of Omar. Watching the report you would have had no idea he was directly addressing her. Just incredible.

  71. Diogenes

    Max & Shane,
    I would like to introduce you Mrs Diogenes uncle by marriage , a former LtCdr in the USN, who was
    1. working at the Pentagon on 9/11, but on the other side to where the plane impacted
    2. lost several close friends in the offices where the plane impacted.

    Try and tell him what happened at the Pentagon. I will happily call 000 for your ambulance(s)

  72. Shane

    Diogenes, I am at a loss as to why you introduce yr uncle, a Post-traumatic stress survivor to the discussion at hand.
    This is unworthy, coming from someone with an avatar who said ”I know nothing, except the fact of my ignorance”.
    I [& Max] raised valid, unanswered, really disturbing questions which no one in the media with mortgage payments or school fees will go anywhere near.
    Its so much easier to go into denial

    https://scontent.fmel5-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/307671_458627827535182_1906627924_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_oc=AQkMrshofmg5GHJm3PrQ63wN0q4F-cILeC73FnjWUuO6oO_CduxKRQeOJQ7u1R6YzI4&_nc_ht=scontent.fmel5-1.fna&oh=7ac372ad082ccaeb41049c92b8d5d1b2&oe=5DEF1CFC

    In this case, the truth has so many levels & so many are in denial because otherwise its just so horrible that I am so glad that I am not on a jury somewhere trying to ascertain the truth because it would so depend on who was supplying the evidence.
    And at this stage who can you trust.
    To me, it seems obvious that Saudi Arabia & other alien/foreign influences were involved somehow ….using mind-blowing as yet publically unknown technology..
    Obviously for the hijackers to play the part that they did in this play, some levels of the US government had to be involved as at least facilitators or in the cover up{?} at some level.
    All nations have factions competing for power, so it certainly doesn’t mean all branches were complicit.
    Just think of the Texas plumber whose truck ended up in Syria being driven by ISIS fighters.
    The Pentagon thing was just totally bizarro strange, just do your own research or better yet let yr uncle by marriage, do it.
    Having said all that If this doesn’t trigger something in yr head I despair of you & you should have failed yr VCE/HSC clear thinking exam & perhaps shouldn’t be allowed to vote because ….we definitely aren’t in Kansas anymore

    Dead Men Tell No Tales – Bin Laden and 9/11
    By Eric S. Margolis

    So who did it?

    A large number of Americans still don’t believe the official version of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.  I am one of them.
    The government and tame media version – that crazed Muslims directed by Osama bin Laden  attacked New York’s twin towers and the Pentagon because they hated ‘our freedoms’ and our religion…

    Private nationalist groups in Saudi who bitterly opposed foreign domination of their country could very well have financed and organized 9/11.  But, of course, Washington could not admit this.  That would have brought into question the US occupation of Saudi.

    What’s also pretty clear is that lsrael – at minimum – knew the attack was coming yet failed to warn its American ‘allies.’  lsrael was the chief beneficiary of the 9/11 attacks – yet its bumbling Arab foes and bin Laden were blamed for this crime.
