Quote from: Phoenix Lazarus on September 15, 2021, 05:44:39 PMBecause of course Islamic terrorists are so focused and defined in what effect they want their terrorism to achieve aside of the destruction, death and injury caused.
Quote from: chveik on September 15, 2021, 06:05:37 PMwell causing death and destruction is the primary goal given the nature of terrorism
Quote from: Phoenix Lazarus on September 15, 2021, 06:22:40 PMBut the IRA didn't just kill people for its own sake, but because they wanted to drive British forces out of Ulster and reunite Ireland independently of us. What are Islamic terrorists equivalent aims?
Quote from: Buelligan on September 15, 2021, 04:24:17 PMI don't see the point of the WTC though, really. If it was up to me it'd be -WhitehouseCapitolPentagon x 2AOBWhilst I accept personal choices and preferences are bound to come into it, I cannot, for the life of me, see their logic.

Quote from: Dex Sawash on September 15, 2021, 06:00:35 PMThe answer to the,"why those flights" question was supposed to be they wanted heavy planes with full fuel loads so trans continental ones are usually big and have full tanks. Those tend to be morning or evening flights ,especially if you want to do 6 at once[nb]most of you won't know about #5 and #6[/nb]Might as well synch them up in the morning.
Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on September 15, 2021, 09:16:35 PMAn attack on a military target, landmark or government agency probably wouldn't have had that effect.
Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on September 15, 2021, 09:24:18 PM Especially if you imagine it vs a purely symbolic target like Mt Rushmore or the Statue of Liberty.
Quote from: Zetetic on September 15, 2021, 09:39:29 PMAnd I think those examples show the problem with a lot of "symbolic targets" that you might suggest - they only really make sense to Americans and the imagined boogiemen, not the people undertaking the attacks.
Quote from: idunnosomename on September 15, 2021, 09:52:42 PMi doubt crashing a plane into mount rushmore would do much since it's granite. you'd probably damage some details and blacken the surface but it could pretty easily be restored.
Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on September 15, 2021, 09:46:38 PMI don't think the USA has successfully reclaimed WTC as a symbol of freedom or defiance.
