Today marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. These were "a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks [...] against the United States of America on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001."

Of the 2,977 people who died, 2,605 were U.S. citizens and 372 non-U.S. citizens (excluding the 19 perpetrators). More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks, including the United Kingdom (67 deaths), the Dominican Republic (47 deaths), India (41 deaths), Greece (39 deaths), South Korea (28 deaths), Canada (24 deaths), Japan (24 deaths), Colombia (18 deaths), Jamaica (16 deaths), Philippines (16 deaths), Mexico (15 deaths), Trinidad and Tobago (14 deaths), Ecuador (13 deaths), Australia (11 deaths), Germany (11 deaths), Italy (10 deaths), Bangladesh (6 deaths), Ireland (6 deaths), Pakistan (6 deaths), and Poland (6 deaths).

It was a tragedy not only for America, but for the world.

    Yes, but Covid just kills people, who gives a shit about that? 9/11 destroyed values! Companies lost millions! Some companies even ceased to exist!

    Covid only kills people. Mostly old people who just cost insurances money anyway. 9/11 killed highly trained office workers that are hard to replace because you have to spend a lot of money training the replacement before they can be as efficient.

    The 9/11 attack killed several whole office buildings full of important people in one of the world's financial hubs.

      And destroyed the financial records that were to be used to investigate GOP crimes. And made many tons of gold simply vanish.
