yeah, sum1 else has posted that
11. dont start posting bull like that
12. How crap is that
Ugh, no way. That is so stupid. You are exposing America as something so evil when I believe they ARE humanistic and ethical and wouldn't even dream of doing something like this.
that's quite short sighted adhsur. Things never have to come from the top men, there are always branches willing to do anything for their country. Even in american history there have been 'rogue' agents who have commited atrocities for their 'countries interest'.

The President of the USA - George W. Bush - 11 letters.
The previous USA President - Bill Clinton - 11 letters.
The US Secretary of State - Colin Powell - 11 letters.
J K Rowling - 9 letters
Harry Potter - 11 letters

= 9/11 therefore the Harry Potter books foresaw 9/11 (even those printed after the date).
16. It's 3 Morrocans and two Indians of Spanish origin. El Pais wouldn't get it wrong and nor do TVE. Would it personally make a difference to you if this weren't ETA? WHat if it were Al-Qaeda? Would you feel different?
17. al qaeda is probably seen as more of a threat to britains that eta, so however selfish or sadistic this might sound we would probably care more if it was al qaeda
18. every time I hear that it was exactly 911 days since 9/11 it makes me shudder, it just seems so... scary and horrible. I just can't understand why people set out with the intent of killing innocents - the world's not right. Why can't everyone just be happy?

If you think about it if you something's going to happen it's probably not
19. come on people, its just sheer coincidence. do you think large terrorist organisations would care less if the tower attacks took place on sept 10th or the train bombs took on place march 12th. they will just be thinking, get the job done! Try and link the sept 11th attacks to the us embassy bombing in kenya, or the WTC tower bombing in 1990 (i think) using dates.
