"Empty Sky" -- Dave P. von Eber and a few questions

There are many eloquent memories of September 11, 2001 flourishing on the internet. And there is no lack of analysis.

Here is a link to Dave von Eber's blog, "Journal of the Plague Year".

It breaks my heart to hear that people still think the US invasion and occupation of Iraq is a response to 9/11 or that it is "protecting" us from further violence.

How can we say that it is the "first" terrorism on this soil, when enslaved people were kidnapped, and brought on a hellish journey to experience "servitude" in this New World?

Were not the acts of domination (to be euphemistic) committed against the Indigenous people of this continent (and all of the islands)terrorism?
