If you wonder why other nations should join in to defend freedom
everywhere, the following list was produced of people from other
nations who were in the WTC. The interaction of business from
around the world was being transacted and not just American
business interests in the WTC. These buildings represented
more than just NY or USA, it represented the place where all
could come together to keep business between countries flowing
for all. Although it definitely was a strike against the United States,
it was against the world by barbaric people who definitely have
other plans to continue. We mourn fellow Americans but others
mourn their countrymen also from this great tragedy.
