I think it's already been decided that they are going to build towers or some kind of structure. You can see the new designs on CNN (the old concepts sucked). I find it interesting that the one that looks most like the old WTC gets the most votes in the poll. I think they should build them exactly the same, maybe a couple floors higher and have the first two floors be a giant memorial.

take a look at the gallery on the left, the article photo shows the worst one

firstly, does any one know what the leaders of the muslim religion have said on the matter?


secondly, i know this is a little old but, regarding the slaughtering of a christian neighborhood (i think it was morocco). could anyone point out a place in the koran where it says a person may kill with the context that surrounds that situation?

I think instead of taxing us to build towers again we should use the money to nuke people. So instead of saying "f*ck u" with rebuilding the towers we could do it by killing them.

I'm just glad they weren't replacing the towers w/ just a memorial that only shows what happened. I think the original towers would be enough of a memorial.

Yeah, I completely agree that the towers should be replaced exactly the way they were pre 9/11. I live in Brooklyn and had the unfortunate experience of watching the second plane fly straight over me and into the South Tower. These designs are holding up the construction and it's insane. These construction workers cleaned the hole up in five months and that's unheard of if you saw how much clean up was needed. That section was ready for building over a year ago now and the city is losing trillions by not having anything there. Build the damn towers back again. The way they were!
