    To me it's a no brainer...

    Let's see, we were in a standoff in the CMC where no one got killed versus thousands of innocent lives perishing because of wackjobs and their religious beliefs...

    Pretty sure you can't compare the two.

    I should point out that had the Missle Crissis gone bad, this conversation wouldn't be taking place because everyone reading it on different continents would be dead or never born.

    9/11 happened and were all still here.

    Apparently you thought it was needing to be put out there twice.

    You can't compare them. - different situations. I doubt any of us were alive or remember the Cuban Missle Crisis. But from talking to people who lived through that- it was maybe more dangerous. I mean kids doing bombing drills in the classrooms, the threat of a nuclear strike at any second. Very scary, dangerous time, end of the world kind of feeling.

    So like, you like think they are not comparable eh?? Probably the two most frightening moments in American history in the years since Pearl, but I think you should enlighten us all on how they are like not like comparable. And, like, nobody died in the CMC so, like, maybe you could like explain how the....hmmm how did you put it so well..."Obviously the CMC is worst" when thousands of American lives were like lost in 9/11?? Like, props to you and yours, cuz' that was like a real quality like post!!

    we know what happened on 9/11- Terrorists hijacked planes and crashed them into the WTC and the Pentagon, killing thousands of innocent people. No mystery there.
