Twin Towers wreckage being turned into a Weapon of War

USS New York

Warship built out of Twin Towers wreckage – World – Times Online

Mr Clement said it would be fitting if USS New York’s first mission was to capture Osama bin Laden. He said: “They hit us first, but out of a tragedy a good thing has come, in that we’re building a ship which can help take those people out.”

What do you think of something like this? Basically they’ve taken the remains of the World Trade Center towers and are now using them to construct a giant Navy vessel.

  1. Hmm… it’s been a very talky week for me here. I’ll just say that I don’t like it, but it fits with a society/world that confuses justice with vengeance, and confuses both with healing.

  2. Wow.

    I know a building isn’t exactly a farming implement, but to me, this sounds like the exact opposite of turning swords into plowshares. Instead of taking weapons and fashioning them into something, we’re making weapons…

  3. I am a New Yorker. This is disgusing but not at all surprising. I do wonder whether some of the firefighters and people I know who helped clean the mess up would have so easily have volunteered to do so had they been aware that this is what would have happened to their efforts.
