To my fellow Americans, American did this to Americans. Don't listen to the media.

Dont get me wrong, I feel sympathetic to all who this day has effected.

WOOSH

The whole point is that "country" in this context is unimportant. Whether a person is killed in the United States, Canada, Pakistan or Japan, isn't relevant to the event's moral significance. It has obvious political and practical ramifications, but the only way you can take 9/11 to be significant and the other events insignificant (assuming you have no personal investment in either, namely friends/family) is if you think human welfare is utterly unimportant.

This has absolutely nothing to do with America's obligation (or lack thereof) with respect to world affairs. But I digress. You shouldn't let facts get in your way. Continue promoting the American stereotype.

That's funny, because that's exactly how they feel about us. Maybe if there were less people like you, we'd have a lot less aggression towards eachother.
