Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Once more
into the breach,
dear friends,
once more

Topic: 9/11
"Or close the wall up with our English dead!
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect.
(III,i) "
Henry V by Shakespeare.

Though in this case it is not a case of closing a
wall with our dead, but preventing our dead from being defiled.

Twice now the Memorials to the Horrors of Sept 11, 2001 the Fall of the World Trade Tower, the Destruction at the Pentagon and the Valor of Flight 93, have been placed upon the Altar of Political Correctness, Bonding and Healing in preparation for Sacrifice.

Twice the American Public has risen in condemnation and STILL they try the same things, and then blink all innocent eyed when called to task.

First it was the Statue of the Firemen Raising the Flag. I posted on that here.

Some Things Are Sacred

THEN they wanted to use the WTC Memorial, NOT to honor the dead, but to teach us lessons about our past, Uhh why we deserved it I guess?

I posted on that Here.

Take Back The Memorial Petition

and Here.

WTC Memorial

Now it seems they have their hands on the Flight 93 Memorial, whose name it turns out is intended to be
the "Crescent of Embrace" made out of red and sugar maples. How SWEET, and how symbolic The Red Crescent has the same meaning in the MidEast as The Red Cross does here.

When I read, "The idea of the Crescent of Embrace, Murdoch said, is to be a gesture of healing and bonding.", my reaction was NOT one of healing,

I do NOT want to be "bonded" to the symbol that inspired the 19 Jihadists for the first serious attack on the US since Pearl Harbor.

When you consider all the controversy about the World War One Memorial in the Mojave Desert, because it is in the shape of a cross?

Memorial in peril on Mojave preserve
The cross is the focus of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, which contends that the display of the cross on federal land violates the constitutional principle of separation of church and state.

I have HAD it!

I agree whole heartedly with most of what you said, however I hope your comparison of the Red cross to the red cresent was a simple mistake, I hope you aren't saying the red cross aids terorists and criminals at nearly every opertunity, or that it bows before the dictates of it's political masters, even when those result in harm to the people they were supposedly taking care of or that the red cross uses the people in it's care to make political points or that the red cross provides different levels of care to different people depending on what bribes or requests from influencial people the physicians resieved. I really hope you're not saying the red cross does all that because when you compare them to the red crecent which does all that and more it certainly sounds as if that's what you're doing.

My use of the Red Cross as a Comparison to the Red Crescent was deliberate, and not mistaken, but I thought the simple Religous and Geographical symbolism was obvious enough on the surface that deeper meanings and inuendos were superfulous.

Nor as it turns out was I even taking into consideration, as neither do I consider it a reflection of Red Cross as a whole the aid given to terrorists in Iraq by the Italian Red Cross/

So unruffle your feathers.
