September 11th was a defining moment in history, it showed that America could be 
attacked within her own borders; it didn't need an ICBM as has been the thinking.

It would be tragic that when (not if) it happens again; and what could be the outcome 
(will cities not buildings lay waste)?

Lastely, could it have been prevented? Will the thinking of no war still be present?
