## Did Nostradamus Predict the Sept 11th Tragedy?

Written by Richard Lowe

Continued from page 1

Yet another variation showed up in emails all over internet.

Earth-shaking fire from center of earth. Will cause towers around New City to shake, Two great rocks for a long time will make war, And then Arethusa will color a new river red.

This actually comes from a real verse, below.

Volcanic fire from center of earth will cause trembling around new city: Two great rocks will make war for a long time. Then Arethusa will redden a new river.

You will note correct translation does not include anything at all about towers.

Some hoaxer played numbers game (another favorite pastime of followers of Nostradamus). The attack is no exception.

The flights that were hijacked were from United and American Airlines, they were numbered as follows: 11, 93, 175, and 77

11= Today's' Date (Sept. 11) 9+3=12 = Tomorrow (Sept. 12) 1+7+5=13 = Thursday 7+7=14 = Friday

I'm not sure what this is supposed to prove, but it's pretty darn silly. A hoax, of course.

The flights were chosen for specific reasons. The numbers meant nothing.

- Destination (large amount of fuel on board), - Origin (large amount of fuel remaining at time of impact), - airport security (or lack thereof), - and time of departure (for a loosely coordinated attack)

There is a real passage from Nostradamus which is similar to one above (although nothing matches attack facts).

When 1999 is seven months o'er Shall heaven's great King -- albeit a dread host, he -- Restore King from Angoumois once more, Ere -- after March -- he'll reign propitiously.

This verse has been used to predict everything (almost literally) from comets to disasters.

So what's bottom line? The prophecies of Nostradamus may or may not be valid. But they have nothing to do with terrorist attack on September 11th. Nothing at all.

## September 11, 2001 - A Day of Infamy

Continued from page 1

What should United States do now? First of all, we need to understand that this attack came from a small group of evil creatures. These creatures do not deserve mercy as they are not civilized in any definition of word.

It also needs to be understood that we MUST REMAIN CIVILIZED. We are not barbarians, we are good human beings. We do not need to needlessly strike out at innocents without cause.

We must and we will strike back. However, we must be absolutely sure that we strike intelligently and with precision of a surgeon who knows exactly what manner of cancerous tumor he is removing. It is our right to defend ourselves, and it is our right to demand and establish justice - it is our duty to ensure that justice is indeed served properly and in good time.

One critical goal of this attack was to destroy some of symbols of American power. The biggest symbol is World Trade Center.

We MUST rebuild twin towers, grander and more beautiful than ever before. We must clean up damage, plan a new set of towers, and get them reconstructed as fast as possible. The towers must be rebuilt to show these uncivilized sub-human beings that they cannot do permanent damage.

We MUST identify, with certainty, who is responsible for this attack, and we must do it quickly. The United States spends billions or even tens of billions of dollars every year on intelligence - every single piece must be turned towards finding culprits.

Once we do identify, with certainty, responsible parties, they must be destroyed, without mercy and without delay. It is imperative that evil not be tolerated when it has unmasked itself for all to see.

Most important of all, we must now understand that we are at war with these terrorists. We are at war and we must act as if we are at war. All of our military power must be channeled towards finding these creatures and taking them out. Fast.

Finally, we MUST NOT allow evil to corrupt our basic good. We must continue to hold out our hand to rest of world. We must continue to help establish order on planet. And we must not harm innocents in our search for guilty.
