The case of the twin towers assault

I thought it might be a good idea to also write a blog on what happened after the twin towers attack according to my psychological model.

When the twin towers fell, people were upset. Bush jr. was on tv announcing a "war on terror" which consisted of 2 punitive expeditions at the same time. Germany fell because of a war on two fronts, but Bush was PISSED OFF and it was clearly visible on tv. He was going to make a show of force.

Bush jr. hated Saddam Hussein with a vengeance before the attack because he didn't listen to his daddy Bush sr. He was going to fall. So was the taliban. Something needed to be attacked.

In comes the concept of confirmation bias. That is all there is to it. WMD's, all that stuff. Just check the article on wikipedia. In the meantime everyone knew Syria had chemical weapons but no one cared about that, which proves my point.

Plain stupid. There was no point to any of this. The punitive expeditions cost a lot of money and probably did more harm than good.

The aftermath is that George Bush probably still thinks he did a great job. I think it is the lymbic system or something like that which gives him a positive feeling. However all he did was destroy two countries just to relieve his frustrations and it did no good at all.
