    But look, if the terrorists attacked just 2 hours later, they would have killed 50,000 rather than 3,000.
    Now you tell me, does somthing smell suspicious or what?
    You amaze me.

    edit:
    So you're implying that Bush got the people to hijack the planes and fly them into the WTC at 9am to reduce casualties? So what, 3000 dead were ok, but more was unacceptable? Why wouldn't he have flown them into it at 2am or something then? Besides, what makes you think 20x as many people would have died 2 hours later? Most people are to work well before 9.

    Never mind, I'm not going to make assumptions at what you believe. Please, tell us what you think happened and why. I can't keep all the stupid conspiracy theories straight.

    I don't like the prospect of joining the bandwagon of people that are against you, but you're not making it easy for me to stay out of it.

    There's a difference between "I can't say that because somewhere, someone's feelings might get hurt" and "I can't say that because it will make me sound like a cretinous tool". I detest the former line of thinking, but am in full support of the latter. Conspiracy theories are best left for those who invest in tin-foil stocks and a Mel Gibson circa nineteen-ninety-something. As a humble citizen of the internet once put it:
    if the Illuminati or George Bush or the Israeli's or the frieking JFK/Elvis/John Lennon Conspiracy Team wanted
    people to think the Pentagon was hit by a friggen airplane instead of a missile, they'd just hit it with a friggen airplane.

    Most conspiracy theories are seen as crazy and insane, and because of that I am going to end my session on this thread now so it won't get too hot.

    Translation: "There's no evidence to back up what I'm saying, because it's crazy and insane, so I'm going to leave before people challenge what I believe and make me actually think, which would likely cause my punyass little brain to pop like an overripe pimple"

    On second thought ... I'm not going to let you walk all over me, regardless how hot this is going to get.

    Take a look at this video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...29448192753501

    If you sit through the whole thing and watch it, then you will see why I think what I think, there is simply to much proof. On the other hand, you probably won't, because you are a coward.

    So prove me that you'r not a wimpering coward who uses colorful words and phrases to hide his shame, by whatching this whole thing through. I dare you too.

    Oh christ, Loose Change? The crap in that has been debunked so many goddamn times it's not worth going over again. I mean seriously, I at least thought you might have something original.

    I'm pretty sure this is Loose Change I'm about to speak about.

    I enjoyed the one relatively popular conspiracy theory that Flight 93 was invented.... No cell phone calls, no fight to take the plane down, no "Let's roll!"....

    So what happened?

    Their plane was swapped with another plane somewhere at another airport. Everyone in the flight is OK, and the plane still exists in a hidden location somewhere I think according to the theory. Overall, they concluded something really almost funny if it wasn't so absurd and insulting to the victims of 9/11... it was something as stupid as saying the entire plot of 9/11 was conceived and orchestrated by the government to steal gold from the WTC.

    I can think of easier ways of handling a trick plan to achieve either getting hidden gold or getting political support than blowing up the WTC towers with either missiles or explosives, flying a missile into the pentagon, another missile into a field in Pennsylvania, swapping planes, hiding the original Flight 93, trucking off some gold, inventing a bunch of cover stories, launch a war in Afghanistan for a phantom oil project, launch a war on Iraq that has cost money and lives, lose public support over it, watch gas prices soar, have to spend millions (or perhaps billions or even trillions) to rebuild something in place of the WTC towers,.......

    Do you guys get it, yet? This conspiracy stuff doesn't work the way you might think it should. I'm amazed at the people that seem to think Bush causes hurricanes... He's supposed to be an idiot, but he's also supposed to be a genius behind a huge conspiracy. Make up your feeble minds already!

    Queatrix, you disappoint me. I think I would have enjoyed to have a discussion on the subject of 9/11. I ran out of sparring parners in the last political debate I had here, but I don't think I would mind debating the odd conspiracy theorist.

    Queatrix, before you accuse me of being a coward, I'm not watching that garbage because I've already watched it. It's brought up in every single thread like this on the entire effing internet. If you've got specific points you think warrant discussion from it, bring them up, but I'm not watching that crap again.

    My favorite theory is the "Pentagon plane was a missle" one. They loaded all the people on this plane, it took off, landed at a secure location and they shot a missle into the pentagon. While that was happening, the plane was chopped up into bits, and scattered across the lawn along with the body parts of the people onboard.

    Seriously, Queatrix... I know you're at that age, but you really need to get this whole "It makes sense to me, there for it must be correct" idea out of your head. Like Govt said, every single point made in that video has been thoroughly debunked by significantly more qualified professionals than the ones who were involved in the video. If logic alone doesn't tell you that video is crap, then just simple search the internet and look at the counter-points.

    Please show me these counter-points, I'm not ignorant to any possibilities. (I would search Google, but I really don't know what to use as my query.)

    EDIT: Also, I'm not saying that everything the video says is true, just the main idea that the inside US government was responsible.

    What was the motive?
