    A year after the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, a coloring book company has published a new book for kids about terrorism. It's called "We Shall never Forget 9/11, Volume II: The True Faces of Evil-Terror" and, among the black-and-white outlines of memorials and military men, it features collectible trading cards with photos and information about terrorists around the world.

    "This is not the type of book that you would give to a pre-Kindergarten child, to put in his backpack and send him off to school," Wayne Bell, the publisher of St. Louis-based Big Coloring Books Inc., told Yahoo! Shine in an interview. (He is quick to point out that it's more of a "graphic coloring novel.") "This is a teaching and learning tool that's rated PG-13."

    "A lot of people seem to think that there's a disconnect with the public in general when it comes to teaching children about terrorism and terrorist activity," Bells adds. "A lot of people want to be politically correct. It's just really difficult to deal with that subject sometimes."

    The 40-page book features black-and-white drawings of the branches of the U.S. military and outlined images of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, all ready and waiting be colored in. It also features photos of 9/11 crash sites, excerpts from a letter from Rep. Michele Bachman questioning the head of Homeland Security about the Muslim Brotherhood, and four full-color pull-out pages of glossy trading cards.

    On the table of contents page kids are urged to "share the information in this book with your friends, neighbors, teachers, educators, religious leaders." They're also cautioned to get their parents' permission before taking the book to school "to share with friends."

    It's the type of book that people have to judge by its content, not its cover, Bell explains.

    "A lot of people simply love the book because it's not politically correct, and they're not teaching the history of terrorism in schools today," he says. "This book has nothing to do with the Muslim faith. It has nothing to do with Islam. It just so happens that a lot of the high-profile terrorists happen to be radical Islamic jihadists."

    The trading card idea was inspired by the "Terrorist Attack" collectible cards issued by the Piedmont Candy Company in 1987, and by ones printed in Chicago and New York in 2002, Bell says.

    "Why trading cards? It's kind of interesting," he says. "It's kind of like when the U.S. government made USA playing cards with terrorists on the playing cards, from the Ace of Spades down to the Deuce of Hearts. It's just another feature in the book that's pretty unique in that it explains terrorists and terrorism."

    "It's unique in the fact that we try to name them and shame them, the actual faces of evil," he adds.

    The 36 cards feature the 9/11 terrorists, but also include WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Beltway snipers John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, and Unibomber Theodore Kaczynski, among others. On the backs are printed detailed information about each.

    "We're giving people a teaching and learning tool," Bell says. "It's an unpleasant subject, make no mistake about it. A lot of people don't want to talk about it. They want to forget it. But we make it because a lot of people want to read about it and buy it."

    I believe the term that should be used is "cunt". The people responsible for this book are "cunts".

    By selling this book, they only promote what these people have done (excluding Assange, adding him is even more retarded than the rest of the book).

    Article posted:
    A lot of people don't want to talk about it. They want to forget it.
    I think that that is a good thing. If you constantly remind people about what some crazy lunatic did and tell everyone why they should fear people like him, you not only create more terror than these people did in the first place, you allow other people to get the idea that by becoming terrorists that they too will be remembered. Just let the fucking terrorists drop off the face of the earth.

    Oh hey! The Beltway snipers! They killed a landscaper on my street.

    I remember the day it happened, but I actually didn't know it was them until I saw a documentary about them and there was William Shatner narrating over a shot of my street.

    I like how they comment that a lot of the terrorists are Muslim, but don't mention anything about the Christian radical, "Tim McVeigh" Who bombed the Goverment because of supposed, "Religious Prosecution".

    It's only wrong when Muslims bomb for religious prosecution kids! When Christians do it, it's because the Government is persecuting them!

    Who the hell uses coloring books after 13.
    By that point if you want to color in the lines you're using the paint bucket in MS paint on a traced drawing and submitting it to DeviantArt

    "Wealth + Taste", a cyber terrorist? Read more about this belligerent Facepuncher's efforts to undermine America's white christian values through the internet in our new coloring book, The True Faces pf Evil II - Revengeance.

    Ah no wonder then.

    Also all you Wikileaks people coming in here should know that we on FP are very conservative and hate Wikileaks and Assange for being dirty commie Nazi terrorists that hate America and the Freedom it invented.

    Julian Assange might be a criminal (in some ways a good criminal), but he is definitely not a terrorist.
