While addressing the 9/11 memorial service, Bush said many of us struggle to understand why the terrorists attacked the WTC on 9/11/01.

I can tell you right now, there is nothing difficult about it. The reasons could not be any more obvious and the reason why any American would be struggling to understand is also obvious.

The reason why we were attacked:
Because we keep trying to turn their world into a commercial market, whether they want it or not.

The reason why Americans struggle to understand it:
Pride. We Americans are not interested in learning how "evil" we are. Instead. we prefer to look for other reasons where we don't look like bad guys, even if we have to make something up.

It's imperative to the American psyche to be seen as the heroes, not the villains but unfortunately, the actions of our elected government, especially on matters of foreign policy, confirms our role as the "evil empire".

Ever since WW2, the neoliberal order, perpetuated by the G8, has been trying to incorporate every potential source of wealth into a globalized market controlled by the wealthiest oligarchs. The process starts with diplomacy and, depending on the resistance encountered, will escalated to diplomatic or economic hardball and eventually, in the most resistant cases, military intervention. In other words, we don't take "no" for an answer and if need be, we will topple any government or democracy that dares to resist.

This neoliberal order along with its global institutions like the World Bank and the IMF is symbolically head quartered in the World Trade Center in NYC. No other target could make it any more obvious what message those Saudi terrorists were trying to leave us with. The only people that can't see that are the prideful Americans themselves, pushing a wide variety of alternate reasons… my favorite being that they are "jealous" of our freedom.

Bottom line is simple. The World Trade Center was a counter attack in response to a long running American-led effort to commoditize the world. Our refusal to accept this truth is our guarantee that terrorism will continue to be a threat to our lives despite what our massive but ineffective military does.

Yup... I have business to take care of until later in the afternoon, so I'll be signing out for a while, but I will check in this evening and respond to anything thoughtful... but I won't be holding my breath. ;) A lot of them will simply ignore the post, which is the safest way to preserve one's delusions, but to be honest, there isn't a whole lot to debate here. I'm really just holding up a mirror.

I agree with your assessment and never liked the term Global market as if everyone has to get on the same page and must sync their economy with that of the West.
Some countries can go a lot further with a lot less but they get exploited by "richer" countries that have little interest in maintaining separate cultures respecting the values of a lesser country. It's all about profit and greed. And if a country don't want to go along and modernize their ways, they are trampled on anyway in the name of progress. If they have strategic minerals or are strategically located they are getting an airport , embassy and a foreign military base weather they want it or not. It's hard for a culture to survive in the face of such modern technology disrupting their once peaceful lives.
That was Osama Bin Ladins Biggest bitch about America. He felt we were desecrating his holy land. And in fact I don't think he was wrong for feeling this way. So he acted out in a way that he would be heard. That said I don't think he.was behind 9-11 but he probably cheered when it happened.
