9-11-2013 Two Million Bikers to Washington DC ~ To Honor the Fallen of 911

The September 11, 2001 attacks resulted in 2,996 immediate (attack time) deaths: 2,977 victims and the 19 hijackers. A total of 372 foreign nationals (excluding the 19 perpetrators) perished in the attacks, representing just over 12% of the total. The immediate deaths include 246 victims on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,606 in New York City in the World Trade Center and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon. About 292 people were killed at street level by burning debris and falling bodies of those who had jumped or fallen from the World Trade Center's windows. All the deaths in the attacks were civilians except for 55 military personnel killed at the Pentagon. Some immediate victims were not added to the list until years later.

The news media has traditionally described the attacks as the deadliest attack on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor, but in fact there were several hundred more casualties on September 11, 2001 than there were in the December 1941 Pearl Harbor ambush. Not since the last battles of the Civil War had there been a domestic assault with greater loss of life.

More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks on the World Trade Center. The foreign countries with the highest losses are the United Kingdom (including the British overseas territory of Bermuda) with 67, the Dominican Republic with 47, and India with 41.

I don't know if 2 million bikers can make it to DC. Maybe if they had had a year or longer to prepare. However many make it all I can say is God Bless them. I've got a hunch the 1 million muslim gathering will be miniscule. Probably a few thousand demanding, angry, obnoxious, sniveling rag headed MFs. I hope they push the bikers too hard and get the crap knocked out of them. Screw islam.
