This is NOT some lame ass conspiracy…it is a ‘what if’……so it should be ‘what if 9/11 never happened”?
Today is the day when we take a few minutes to observe a silence for those people that perished in the attacks….
I do like to look at history and thinking of some sort of alternative…..9/11 is no different…..
How different would the world be today if there had been no 9/11? What if the attacks had been foiled or bungled? One obvious answer is that Americans would probably care a lot less than they do about the rest of the world.
Back on the eve of destruction, in early September 2001, only 13 percent of Americans believed that the U.S. should be “the single world leader.” And fewer than a third favored higher defense spending. Now those figures are naturally much higher. Right?
Wrong. According to the most recent surveys, just 12 percent of Americans today think the U.S. should be the sole superpower—almost exactly the same proportion as on the eve of the 9/11 attacks. The share of Americans who want to see higher spending on national security is actually down to 26 percent. Paradoxically, Americans today seem less interested in the wider world than they were before the Twin Towers were felled.
What would the news have been if the attack had not happened?
Everyone remembers exactly where they were and what they did on 9/11.
But what do you remember about the day before — or the news the early-morning of?
Not much, we’re guessing.
Nothing that happened the day before 9/11 — and nothing that was set to make news before 8:47 a.m. on 9/11 — seemed remotely relevant in the aftermath.
If the attacks had never happened, here’s what you would have been talking about on 9/11.
Now that was interesting…….. the crap that would have made the morning news if the 9/11 attacks had been canceled or thwarted….
