National Geographic brings back dark memories of 12 years ago; live footage and re-enactment of actual crashing of hijacked planes by terrorists in into World Trade Centre in New York, Pentagon Building and a Pennsylvania field re-echoes tragedies of unimaginable proportions.
It re-tells moments when terrorists who hid under religion (a mere pretext I belief – true Islam and Muslims believe in peace), and hatred for anything Western brought the world to its knees. It was devilish.
Four hijacked passenger airliners (American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 77 and United Airlines Flight 93), and 19 al-Qaeda terrorists were all it took to change everything. Evil men destroyed the world peace.
Thousands died that day, thousands died after. Thousands are still being killed today in war theatres across the world. All precipitated by September 11, 2001 attack on the United States. Revenge and reprisal killings (justifiable to some extent), and often disguised as the search for terrorists, are leading cause deaths in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, etc. today.
September 11, 2001 changed our world; it changed relations. It was the day Osama bin Ladin’s al-Qaeda suicide terrorists murdered world peace.
9/11 changed our world, for the worse.
