Civilized discourse is not about reading drivel day after day
and never ever saying it is drivel. I called no one names you
will note.

I did not say so. But that was not what 9/11 was about and the
thousands killed are irrelevant to whether that was what it was
about. Tossing them in bullies the question and implies those
who disagree with your assessment are ignoring them when this is
not the case in the least. You might not do this on purpose but
it is not helpful.
