今天CBC的The Passionate Eye栏目播的是102 Minutes That Changed The World (改变世界的102分钟)，讲述的是911，从第一架飞机撞上世贸大楼（world trade tower）的双子塔的一塔起火、第二架飞机又撞上世贸大楼双子塔的另一塔，到燃烧1个小时后两幢楼一个接一个倒塌以及整个过程中外界的救援和身在现场的人们的反应，102分可能是指从受到袭击到最后一幢楼倒塌的时间，据说每幢里可能有3、4万人。
另外一件事，和911不相干，是两国人对自己国家领袖的不同态度。CNN报道说冲布什扔鞋的那个伊拉克人虽然被判了三年，但他的律师说他明天就可能出狱了。新闻一提这件事就会播放布什弯腰躲鞋的镜头。我和一个美国人聊天，他呵呵笑说，I want to see how he ducked for it，说，我很能理解那个伊拉克人，是美国人去了他们才成为那个样子。他们的新闻上对此也轻描淡写，没有谴责当然也没有赞许。我跟同胞们说温总理被扔鞋时，一般对方表情都会立刻变得相当凝重。
下面是标题为“Sad and disturbing 9/11 call”的Youtube上的一段视频，看不到的需要用翻墙软件。
Our war on terror begins with alQaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated. Americans are asking, why do they hate us? They hate what we see right here in this chamber a democratically elected government. Their leaders are selfappointed. They hate our freedoms our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other. They want to overthrow existing governments in many Muslim countries, such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. They want to drive Israel out of the Middle East. They want to drive Christians and Jews out of vast regions of Asia and Africa.These terrorists kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and end a way of life. With every atrocity,they hope that America grows fearful,retreating from the world and forsaking our friends. They stand against us,because we stand in their way. We are not deceived by their pretenses to piety. We have seen their kind before. They are the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions by abandoning every value except the will to power -- they follow in the path of fascism, and Nazism, and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way, to where it ends in history's unmarked grave of discarded lies. win this war? We will direct every resource at our command every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence, and every necessary weapon of war -- to the disruption and to the defeat of the global terror network. This war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not look like the air war above Kosovo two years ago, where no ground troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat. Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.
