The war machine of the US/zionist/corporate/banker empire must never let the myths rest. Pound it into the public's mind, never let them forget, never let the cheers for blood be silenced.
Let's roll! US Navy's newest ship is a floating tribute to the passengers who fought back on Flight 93 on 9/11
The U.S. Navy's newest ship has been unveiled as a floating tribute to the passengers who lost their lives when Flight 93 has hijacked by terrorists on September 11 2001.
The USS Somerset is filled with reminders of that tragic day including a quilt bearing the names of the 40 passengers and crew on Flight 93 who stormed the cockpit of the hijacked airliner, forcing it to crash in a Southwestern Pennsylvania field but thwarting an attack on Washington D.C.
The ship takes its name from Somerset County where the plane crashed killing everybody aboard while the ship's mess has been named 'Heroes Hall'.
But the warship also bears a physical link with the tragic event after which it was named, 22 tons of steel from a large crane near the crash site was melted down and used to build the sternhold.
Captain Thomas Dearborn, the ship's commanding officer, said: 'Had it not been for their heroic actions, the terrorists would have reached their intended targets, and for sure, countless more lives would've been lost and perhaps even changed the outcome of history as we know it.' more
The ship, now at Penn's Landing PA, will be formally commissioned there Saturday March 1.
Throughout the ship's otherwise spartan interior are reminders of Flight 93 and symbols of Somerset County. A map of the county is painted on the floor. Road signs from boroughs and townships were placed on passageway walls. The words Never Forget are etched on the bow deck.
The words "Let's Roll" - the rallying cry of the passengers and crew who stormed the cockpit doors to confront the four hijackers - are inscribed across the rear of the superstructure.
The ship's motto, "Virtus per adversa," "Strength through adversity," is visible throughout.
The Somerset is the last of three warships built to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks, along with the New York and the Arlington, named for the location of the Pentagon.
The ship is not likely to deploy before 2016 because it has more testing and sea trials to conduct from its home port of San Diego. By then, it will be ready to mobilize for war. more
There's nothing like touring a big boat while half dressed and waving pom poms.
The Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders get a early look at the USS Somerset and solidify that special relationship between the NFL and the military.
The Avondale Shipyard on the banks of the Mississippi in Louisiana is a place I was once very familiar with. This will be the last warship built there. Don't worry though, someplace else will build others as more borrowed fiat money is available.
