Yesterday was the 10th annual comemoration of the 9/11 tragedy. On TV channels, like History Channel, I saw heart touching programmes, like the Last Calls (made by victims) from the Twin Towers. I, personally, condemn any act of terrorism, regardless of by whom it is done. While 10 years have passed and many of the victims' family members have tried to learn something from the tragedy, I doubt if the American government has done the same thing. While George W. Bush immediately aired after the disaster and announced that he condemned such an act of homicide, he should have also reflected, why such a terrible thing could have happened. What triggered those terrorists in the first place to do such an act?
For me, as what those terrorists themselves might have shown, it is the American foreign policy of double standard. The negligence of the US government of the homicide that takes place almost everyday in the Palestine and the support that it shows to Israel are immediate examples. Those terrorists wish to teach the American government a lesson! That's an important thing that must come to our attention.
Yet has the US government really learned something? From what I saw from the TV, where Bush has only condemned such act of terrorism, without seemingly having tried to understand the reasons of its occurence, followed by the agressions he launched to Afghanistan and Iraq, to me it appears that NOT a lesson has been learned by the US government. Measured from the toll of innocent victims that 9/11 has brought, it is such a big shame for the US government.
