                     The 9-11 Moment
[col. writ. 9/9/07] (c) '07 Mumia Abu-Jamal

It is true that 9-11 changed everything, but not quite the way that the
Bush Regime intended.

It changed how many in the world perceived the U.S., for sure, but the
U.S. response to 9-11 has done more to change such perceptions.

As the ashes began to cool from the embers of what was once the World
Trade Center, allies and enemies alike expressed solidarity with the U.S.,
and shed tears of sympathy.

What a difference six years makes.

What was once solidarity has cooled to bitter toleration, and barely
disguised anger.

Remember the so-called "Coalition of the Willing?"

It has dwindled in number and fervor.

Politicians know enough to talk the talk, but precious few are willing
to walk that walk.

Even America's staunchest ally - England - has marched its troops out of
the southern Iraqi city of Basra, under cover of darkness.

In many of the countries where leaders signed up to join the U.S.
crusade, their people have voted them out of office, and sent some leaders
into political retirement.

Such are the wages of democracy.

At home, the war has deepened divisions not seen since the ravages of
the Vietnam War.

And the President? Not only are his numbers in the basement, but he's
pulling his party into the cellar with him.

His latest ploy, to buy time by pointing to the Gen. (David) Petraeus
report, neatly juxtaposes the power relations between civilians and
military. Civilian leaders, in a democracy, aren't supposed to do what
military leaders says; the military is supposed to obey their civilian
political leaders.

But, since 9-11, the nation has fled so far, so fast, from any real
semblance of democracy, that listening to the most profoundly undemocratic
institution in the American republic seems almost normal.

If the Bush regime has changed anything, it has changed this.

A war begun in bad faith, cannot end well.

From the day George W. Bush announced his "shock and awe" bombing runs
over Baghdad, we have seen nothing but a long train of disasters.

The Gen. Petraeus report may do quite a few things, but it won't change
that.

just, yet refuse to defend it--at that moment you begin to die.
And I have never seen so many corpses walking around talking about
justice." - Mumia Abu-Jamal
