9/11 is overrated, America is so ego centric, we go to another country and kill a 100,000 people with questionable reasons at best and we consider it no big deal, we lose 3000 people and its the worst thing ever? All counrtries are just imaginary lines made up by the rich. Remeber we killed millions of indians, but thats right they don't count (not white, rich, christians). 9/11 is used by the evil in power to fatten their pocket books by scarring the stupid masses. By the way I feel awful for the people that died on 9/11 and their families, it was obviously wrong and immorale, but we vastly over inflate its historical value, and our so called leaders have used it to mame and murder far more innocent people for profit and power.
You can debate its historical significance and whether that's overrated, but you have no way of really knowing without having that history to really reflect on it.
But I do think it had a profound effect on the American psyche. I know it did on mine. The insulated bubble I believed I live in was shattered when terrorists destroyed one of the three icons of the world's greatest city.
I don't think it's overrated at all. Sure, if you just look at body counts. But I think the fact that it has led to the hundreds of thousands of deaths is very much why it isn't overrated at all.
The Cold War had only officially ended a decade before, the sky seemed like the limit for America, and then this bombshell is dropped in our laps, and we've basically been embroiled in a Hot War ever since, and probably will remain so for many decades.
