9/11 Terrorist Attacks on the Same Day

[Whispers of Life] Seven years ago, 9/11 left a fresh memory on Liu Guohua’

s mind. Liu is a former law instructor at the Northeastern University in

China. Because on that day, while he was in the United States in Flushing,

New York, he was knocked down to the ground by a Chinese assailant who yelled

loudly: “All Americans should be killed." Later, Mr. Liu was nearly killed

in a retaliation craze. And has the police solved this case yet?




Yuxin: Hello dear audience. The 9/11 terrorist incident has now occurred

several years ago. The terrorist attacks that took place in New York and

Washington D.C. have caused thousands of people to lose their lives. This

tragic incident has brought about numerous family tragedies and mental trauma.


Some people say that the 9/11 incident changed the United States, changed

the lives of Americans, and also served as a wake-up call for the security

of the United States. During these 9/11 events, on the same day, in Flushing,

New York, Liu Guohua personally encountered a terrorist attack.

What actually happened? Now, we will have Mr. Liu share his story with us.




Hello Mr. Liu.


Liu Guohua: Hello Yuxin.


Yuxin: I read that you introduced a Website, called Liuyuan Website: www.6PARK.

com. What is this Liuyuan Website about?


Liu: Correct, I cited as an example the Liuyuan Website. This document tells

that the “Shenzhou V and Shenzhou VI Satellite”, Liu Chunyi offered to

congratulate the Chinese Consulate in New York. The “Shenzhou V and Shenzhou

VI Satellite” are an action to support the Chinese Communist Military.

And what is the main purpose of the Chinese Communist Party to develop their

military forces? Now in Mainland China, the websites controlled by the Chinese

Communist Party make it clear, without covering it up, that the purpose

for the Chinese Communist Party to develop their military is to fight the

United States. It has already been made public. It is easy to remember the

website, it is 6PARK.COM.



Yuxin: The Yuan is the Yuan in Gong Yuan (park)

宇欣 :是公園的園。

Liu: Its server is located in the United States.


Yuxin: Yes, its server is in the United States.

宇欣 :服務器是在美國。

Liu: Correct. People in Mainland China could hardly have access to this

website. It mainly targets overseas Chinese students. These global overseas

students, if interested, will all go to this website.


Yuxin: What is the main purpose of this website?

宇欣 :那這個網站的主導思想是什麼呢?

Liu: To use the Chinese Communist’s ideology to influence overseas Chinese



Yuxin: So it has a great impact, mainly targets upon the global overseas


宇欣 :那這個影響面就是很大了,主要針對世界各地的海外留學生。

Liu: Correct. It was two years ago when I read on this Liuyuan Website an

article entitled “Bombing New York”. This article is a poem. It states

to have the liberation army drive this “Bomber H-5”. It is the latest

type of bomber. And then it will carry four hundred pounds of bombs, four

hundred pounds of bombs is an extremely large amount of bombs. Generally,

a bomber carries less than two hundred pounds. And then fly to where? Fly

over New York. It states that it should not bomb any civilian residents.

They said that civilian residences have too few people. It should directly

target schools, hospitals, and places where there are lots of people.


It stated that at the New York bay, there were many military warships, which

should also launch some large barrel-like cylinders. How many people should

it kill?


It stated two million. And then it stated that two million were not enough.

It should kill four million. It stated that if we want to bomb them to death,

we should bomb them heartlessly, and bomb to death the majority of the




Yuxin: This scheme is horrible.


Liu: There were over four hundred people who read this article when I downloaded

it. This article I …


Yuxin: When did this happen?


Liu: Two years ago. It was during the time when the “Shenzhou V and Shenzhou

VI Satellite” were launched, when they had their highest nationalism.”



Yuxin: Does that website always carry this kind of articles?


Liu: This kind of articles openly promotes terrorism. This article stayed

at the website for one day before it was deleted. As a comparison, I also

registered with the Liuyuan Website, and also have posts on this website.


I recalled when the Atlantis space shuttle was launched, some tiny particles

dropped down. So when the Atlantis was launched, it involved many people’

s attention.


NASA analyzed the video, and believed that it was not a big deal. And then

Atlantis returned smoothly. I also felt very happy after it returned. I

felt that when it was first launched, that some small particles dropped,

but that eventually did not have a big impact. So I am also very happy.

I posted some articles on the Liuyuan Website, and about a dozen photos.

I should say this posting was very normal.


Yunxin: And it is also a very happy thing.


Liu: It is a very happy thing. However after it was posted, someone immediately

followed with a post saying that I was a “traitor to China”.


Yuxin: You posted this in the United States and he said that you were a

traitor to China?


Liu: This website definitely has the Chinese Communist Party’s backing.

That is why it can so openly and undisguised promote terrorism. It also

states that the liberation army should come to attack New York in the United

States, and also bomb many people to death. That is why it could have this

kind of articles posted there for so long. And you see my article was deleted

immediately after it was posted. Such a normal posting could be deleted.


Yuxin: Talking about this terrorism, it reminds us naturally of 9/11. I

heard that on the same day, you also experienced a terrorist attack. What

kind of experience was that?


Liu: This is an incident that I experienced myself. And it happened on the

same day when 9/11 happened. On the day of 9/11, we New Yorkers all had

this experience. The World Trade Center was bombed and destroyed. I was

in Flushing. Manhattan is far away. After being destroyed, the smoke came

up. And the big smog was extremely heavy. Even here, we could see it.


Every New Yorker was shocked by this horrible scene. It was around four

to five in the afternoon when I went to a printing company to take newspapers.

I just heard people talking about this.


Yuxin: You had not seen the images on TV?


Liu: No, I had not seen the images on TV. After I arrived at the print shop,

the TV in there happened to be rebroadcasting the footage of New York being

under this terrorist attack, including some footage of the Pentagon being


I was really shocked seeing these pictures.


At the time, many people at the print shop were watching TV. One person

in the audience, when he saw that the World Trade Center was destroyed by

the plane crashing into it, he applauded and said it was well done. While

cheering loudly, he stood up. He said that the explosion was so good. He

said that all Americans are criminals, and all should be killed. As soon

as I heard this, I was really angry.



Imagine, this is like if a family’s house is on fire, and when we return

and see that the building is still on fire, a person stands up and says,

“Oh, the burning is so good and people inside burnt to death.” Then them

being a relative of ours, one cannot bear to hear people say such things.


Well actually we are all the same. We came to the U.S. and we have very

close relationships with the Americans. We all know that the U.S. has a

Thanksgiving holiday. We came to America, so we should have appreciation

for this land and the people living in it.


Yuxin: We need to love this place.


Liu: We need to love them.


Yuxin: Which print shop was this?


Liu: A print shop in Flushing, it is on the 32nd Street.


Yuxin: What kind of person was he?


Liu: I do not know this person. I tried to stop him from talking. I told

him that he should not speak like this. I was quite polite at the time,

because I did not know this person.


Yuxin: What does he look like?


Liu: He was in his forties. He wore a pair of high-degree glasses. Besides

saying those things, he also talked about America’s invasion of Grenada.

This is a very small incident. What is it about? Due to the coup from the

opposition, Grenada was unstable. The legitimate government of Grenada at

the time invited the U.S. to give military support. Under this circumstance,

the U.S. sent troops to Grenada. Because of this issue, I was certain that

this person came from mainland China. Why? Because I used to be a teacher

in mainland China, and the anti-American teaching materials in Chinese universities

mentioned this issue.



Yuxin: Yes, the textbook mentioned this.

宇欣 :對,這個課本裏有談到。

Liu: Yes, so I was certain that he came from mainland China. I was sure

of it, and I tried to stop him. Later when I could not stop him, I went

out of the print shop with him. We had a clash outside the factory, I knocked

him down, and he was losing at that time.


Xinyu: Did he stop?


Liu: He ran to an automobile repair garage nearby and found an iron rod,

about this long. It weight about ten pounds. I saw that he got the iron

rod, and I knew he wanted to kill me. Anybody can imagine the consequence

of using such an iron rod. Hitting it on someone’s head can kill the person



Xinyu: Right, then what did you do? Did anybody help you?


Liu: I ran inside the print shop, because there were no Chinese in there,

they came out after hearing there was a fight. There were several Westerners

in the factory, but because my English was poor, I pointed to the image

on TV and told them the person chasing me said this was good. They immediately

understood that this assailant cheered for the terrorists. So they came

out to help me right away. There was a person called Frankie, a tall young



Yuxin: A westerner?


Liu: A Westerner, he came from South America.


Yuxin: He tried to hit you with the weapon, did he succeed?


Liu: After I came into the factory, I had nowhere to run. I was empty-handed,

so I said this person supported terrorism. Frankie became angry. He went

to the entrance, and the assailant came in. Frankie grabbed him by his clothes

in front of his chest. As Frankie is tall and big, he began cursing loudly

as soon as he grabbed the assailant, and pushed him outside.


The assailant almost fell outside the factory. He stood up, grasped the

rod and tried to continue fighting. The director of the factory also helped

me. He pointed at the assailant and asked, “Do you know who I am?” He

was also condemning the assailant. The assailant saw that so many people

were on my side, and he could not enter the factory, so he directly threw

the weapon in my direction.


Yuxin: So he threw it at you.


Liu: Yes, he threw it at me. I dodged in haste. The weapon fell on the ground,

making a loud “bang” sound, like iron makes!



Yuxin: Then what happened after this? Did you report it to the police?


Liu: There was a later development. The situation on that day was just like

that. It can be said that Frankie saved my life. Without his help, I might

have been beaten to death by this assailant.


Yuxin: Have you found out later what kind of person this assailant was?


Liu: I still do not know it.


Yuxin: Speaking of this, I thought about after the 9/11 incident, various

Chinese forums were filled with gloating voices. These people not only did

not sympathize or support the victims, but they cheered loudly for the terrorists.

This kind of mentality is really puzzling.


Liu: Yes, these are all very practical problems. After these things happened,

many people warned me that I might encounter other troubles. I believed

that I probably would not, as what I did was appropriate.


Yuxin: You were just stopping him.


Liu: I was merely stopping him.


Voiceover: Seven years later, Liu Guohua comes forward again alongside many

righteous people to fight the Chinese Communist Party’s accomplices in

Flushing in this battle between good and evil. With a gap of seven years,

what is the connection between these two incidents?


Yuxin: So what happened later?


Liu: About half a month later, I went to 32nd Avenue to do business. Everyday

from 4 to 5 o’clock, I closed my business, and then went to the printing

factory to pick up my paper. After I came out of the store, I was not prepared,

suddenly I sensed an object coming at me from behind. So automatically,

I quickly put both hands beside my head, then a hard object hit my head.

It hit me, and after I turned my head, I saw the assailant, he quickly ran

away after that, and my head was bleeding.

劉國華:大約半個月以後,我在32 大道做生意,每天四點到五點這段時間我就把生意結束,然後到印刷廠取報紙。我從商店出來以後,我沒有准備,我就覺得有東西從後面過來襲擊我,我當時就很自然的兩手抱頭,有個硬物就砸到我頭上,砸到我這邊,我回頭一看就是當天的歹徒,打完以後馬上就跑,我一看,頭已經出血了。

Yuxin: Did he know that you worked there before, or was he following you?


Liu: He was well prepared, he was hiding behind the door. Later my friends

told me that I must report this incident to the police, because if I didn’

t do that, I would never be able to find out who did this, so I must report

this to the American police.


I agreed with what they said, and went to No. 109 Police Sub-Bureau to report

this incident to the police. After that, people from that police sub-bureau

said they were very upset about this incident. At that time, the person

who wrote down the details of my case was a female police officer. This

police officer said to me: We make sure to help you to find this assailant,

because you don’t know how to express yourself in English, we will need

to find a police officer who speaks Chinese to talk to you, and have this

person take care of your case. I said fair enough. The following day, when

I was at my store, a police officer indeed came. He gave me his card, and

it stated that his name was Wu Yachang.

我認為說的對,於是我到109 分局去報警,我報警以後,109分局他們對這事情都感到很氣憤。當時負責記錄的是位女員警,這員警當時就給我講,我們一定會幫助你找到歹徒,但由於你不會用英語表達,他說我們會派一個會說漢語的員警來和你聯絡,讓這個人來負責這個案件,我說那很好。第二天我在店裏面,就有一個員警去,這員警去了以後,當時就給了我一張名片,我一看名片,他名叫伍雅倡。

Yuxin: Then here it brings up a story.


Liu: Then I told him what had happened to me. I’d say he paid a lot of

attention to it at that time, he asked me if I had any clue who did it?

I did not. I said to him that the reason why I reported it to the police

was out expectation that police officers would find out about it anyway.

When Wu left, he said, if you hear something, be sure to call me.


Yuxin: Then what happened after that?


Liu: After that, after some time, a friend found out some clues to this

case, then I got in touch with Wu, to tell him about that.



Yuxin: So a clue was found.


Liu: When Wu heard about it, he was very serious about it. Wu then went

to the No.109 Police Sub-Bureau and to my friend’s place, and got this

clue, which included the assailant’s address, his license plate number

and more. After Wu got a hold of this clue, we were sure that he had found

this assailant.


Yuxin: Then, did he deal with it afterwards?


Liu: Wu suddenly found me another day and asked me, if I wanted to reserve

the right to hold this person accountable legally? I said I wanted to reserve

this right. Wu asked me about that, after he obtained the clue from my friend.


Yuxin: So he asked you if you still want to sue this person.


Liu: I wanted to sue this person. But after this person was found, we didn’

t hear anything from him anymore, nothing. Therefore, my friend told me

that this assailant probably had been sent back to mainland China. Why?

We can think about it this way: after Wu obtained the clue, he found him,

and then the police probably would have arrested him.


Since this incident happened on “9/11” it was an open matter, and this

assailant could not deny it. If the police had caught him and then brought

him to trial, since he could not deny it, the police probably would have

to deal with his case. Probably would have sent him back, that’s our logic..
