This scenario was made by Derpmaster.
September 11, 2001. It started like any other. People were going to work and school, living their life, oblivious to what would happen that day. As they woke up, no one knew what significance this day would bring, that this one fateful day would sow the seeds for perpetual strife between the West and the Muslim world. This day would scar the world forever.
The first two planes hit the Twin Towers in New York. Then the Pentagon fell. After that came the White House, the US Capitol, and the Washington Monument. Then the Sears Tower in Chicago, the GM Headquarters in Detroit, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Santa Monica Pier and the Hollywood Sign in LA, the Mall of America in Minneapolis, the Bank of America Tower and the Space Needle in Seattle, the Empire State Building, and many other monuments and important buildings all across America. All destroyed in quick succession.
However, they weren’t done yet. Soon, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina became targets. Then Europe. After that, Russia, South Africa, Nigeria, India, China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. By the end of that fateful day, not a single major non-Muslim country was left untouched. Tens of thousands of innocent civilians had lost their lives, and many hundreds of thousands more were injured, some not to live through their injuries. But aside from the atrocity of the attack itself, something else changed that day. September 11, 2001 was the last day that peace between the Islamic and Western worlds prevailed. Because after this horrible, horrible attack, the West wanted just one thing. That one thing was revenge.
Point of Divergence
The 9/11 attacks were much larger in scope, targeting multiple major cities worldwide. The War on Terrorism, in return, is also much more brutal and larger in scope.
