#1 After twenty years, we're back to a September 10th world.

I'd dispute that statement.

The post 9/11 creeping security theater police state is here to stay, as are Islam & Sharia which became relevant for non-Muslims in the West because of 9/11.

Also Western and specifically US deterrence has been catastrophically damaged if not annihilated by 9/11 and the weak, masochistic and confused reaction to 9/11.

If 1962 the Soviets as rational actors had Pearl Harbor and the aftermath as the relevant data point for assessing and predicting an American reaction to a serious military challenge.

In 2021 and beyond the relevant precedent is 9/11 and the subsequent military engagement that ended in a shameful defeat for the West.

A reset to a 9/10/2001 world would be eminently desirable but is unrealistic.

#3 If Fred is right about thrashing Islamism (#8), that'd be the best news in a while.

#5 In a 9/11 anniversary speech today, Boosh climbed on the "Jan 6ers and [Q]An*n people are just as bad as the Taliban and al Qaeda" bandwagon, thus completing the journey to American hating POS that he began when the neocons co-opted his original Afghan mission.
