When thinking of one of the biggest disasters in American history, the 9/11 attacks does not fall short of being at the top. Probably, where thousands of deaths of innocent people occurred, and even after helping the victims, there were hundreds who were left alone to rot while they kept searching for their loved ones. The world trade center incident was surely one of the most hyped incidents in history, not because of the deaths, but for various other reasons, some of which are listed below.
Not an Accident
One thing needs to be kept in mind. The attack on world trade center was not an accident; in fact, it was a completely planned out activity. If you are to say otherwise, then you may have not even been born when the incident occurred. The 9/11 incident had specific targets, not just the world trade center. The pentagon had also been attacked the same way on the exact same date at the exact same time, so if one thinks of this as some accident, then they are mistaken.
Another reason why there is so much hype on the event is because of the numerous amounts of conspiracy theories and controversies on this particular matter. Many people believe that the attack was actually an “inside job” rather than a terrorist attack (some video and paper evidence supports that), and the fact that the plane which hit the pentagon at the same time had completely vanished when the media arrived. Several other controversial acts make the incident quite suspicious, thereby attracting greater attention from all over.
The after effects of the incident had also been catastrophic, not from the American point of view, but from the point of view of the other nations in the world. Since the world trade center incident, America has bombed several Middle Eastern countries, and is currently at war with some to this date, which has resulted in deaths of millions of innocent people in those areas. A perfect payback for a crime many of them did not commit. Although there were numerous deaths during the 9/11 incidents, the deaths caused by bombing and wars are far greater than we would have imagined.
Live TV Coverage
Another cause of major hype from the 9/11 incident was due to the live TV coverage during the incident. While tens of stories were dropping to the ground, the whole world was watching in horror as they could do nothing about it. Thousands of people were shown plummeting to their deaths, and all we could do was just stare at our television screens as the incident took place.
Changed Lives of Millions
This event proved historical in a sense that it marked the beginning of the world’s hatred towards a specific religious group, the Muslims. Millions of Muslims living in America had now been targeted as the evil doers and were tortured to death in many cases. The whole world had to stare as the Muslims got a huge beating for a crime they never committed.
The future of WTC was to never see the light of the day after 9/11, but the incidents that took place after the event are not justified, as an action taken by one person or group does not mean that you blame the whole community for it.
