Truthful - Factual - Honorable - Indifferent to Political Correctness

The We Shall Never Forget 9/11 Vol. II The True Faces of Evil - Terror, rated PG-13, is about the real world. It is about being human: Good vs. Evil. There is no fantasy in this book. Designed as a consumer friendly, family publication for use with children and adults, this excellent graphic coloring novel helps expand understanding of the factual details and meanings in the War on Terror.

Inside this edition are several pages of perforated, removable card-stock terrorist trading cards. Inspired by real people, real life and reflecting the truth, Vol. II presents terrorism in direct open simplistic terms: what it is, what it looks like and what it means. In this book you will find names, dates, numbers and locations exposing the men, women and governments behind terror as we begin to hold them accountable. Details include a letter from within the Department of Homeland Security signed by five current Congressional Leaders a service organization page directed to the public and family friendly action notes, and The Congressional H.R. 847, the 9/11 Health & Compensation Act. Also in the book is a recap of the original 9/11 Coloring Novel published in August 2011.

Composed with a clear message the graphic coloring book novel calls out for open and honest discussion. We educate children about something besides the "TMZ Society" which bombards them with "important" news. Truthful and honest education about serious subjects for youth is an essential part of learning and considered a critical step in beginning to comprehend the world in which we live.

In describing the inherent bad nature of a terrorist we have included their horrific crimes. This is Good vs. Evil. We Shall Never Forget 9/11 Vol. II Terrorist Trading Cards clearly identifies the evil that may sit next to you on an airplane, or it could be an avowed Atheist in the parking lot of your local grocer on a sunny morning.The world should look at them, make fun of them, name them - shame them, recognize who they are and rid the earth of them. No comic book published, nor any nightmarish fiction written, can compare to the absolute evil pictured in this book. And realize as well "They" are not finished. Imagine a terrorist with a nuclear bomb.

Meanwhile, here's a really interesting article on Assange in the Guardian: The bizarre, unhealthy, blinding media contempt for Julian Assange

Holy nutbar, Batman. To think there are people in your nation that truly think like this. It's buzzing around Twitter today.

It seems like the first poster (Anon) is under the impression that your blog is somehow based in the U.S. - whereas I know you are merely a displaced Amurican...

I agree with the "holy nutbar" comment and can only wonder what fate awaits you at the border the next time your visit the U.S.

If the TSA ever gets wind of your absolute mockery of the United States of Amurica, they will put you in a Wizard of Id cartoon (in chains, hanging upside down on the wall)

Remember this: one of the first reactions to the shooting in Aurora CO, was to ban movie-goers from wearing masks...

Hi Kerry!

Well now that you mention being in a Wizard of Id cartoon, it doesn't sound so bad... even hanging on the wall.

Reminds me of one of my favorite "Radio Free Vestibule" skits... three people chained in a dungeon when the executioner comes, distract him by arguing about the lyrics to "Blinded by the Light".
