Yes, a hugely inconvenient truth, I remember thinking on the day why is this happening? why is America being attacked? and realising that there must be a reason because no one would go to those extremes unless it was very serious......

that is a nicey-nicey child-like way of saying absolutely nothing. Why not strap a pair on and tell us what you think the reasons where then?.

Bearing in mind the world political/military situation at the time of the planning of the attacks (and further back to the Bojinka plot),the commonly held belief is that these attacks were in response to the 1991 liberation of Kuwait - an action the allies had complete UN mandate for and which ended when the legal extent of those mandates was reached.

If you think that international intervention in the affairs of any sovereign state is unjustifiable under any circumstances, then that is ridiculously na´ve, and a stance which would for example, have ironically led to thousands more deaths of muslims in the Srebrenica massacre and from 'ethnic cleansing' in Bosnia.

Enough of these trite oversimplifications, if you have the bollocks to discuss the facts then do so.
