It has been 16 years since one of the most devastating days in US history – a day which sparked more than a decade of relentless international conflict.
Thousands of 9/11 victims’ relatives, survivors, rescuers and others are gathering at the World Trade Centre today to remember what remains the deadliest attack on American soil.
Almost 3,000 people died when hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Centre skyscrapers, the Pentagon, and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.
President Donald Trump, a native New Yorker, is marking the anniversary for the first time as the country’s leader today.
But what has been missing is that the world has become more insecure, crazy.
Aftermath of 9/11 has been horrendous, as Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan suffered the fall out of this brutality.
Pakistan became the Non-NATO ally of US in combating terror.
Al Qaeda claimed the responsibility; their deceased leader Osama Bin Laden was behind in maneuvering this act.
On the pretext of cleansing terrorists, and the ones who support them, USA intervened in Afghanistan
The repercussions were felt within Pakistan.
The wave of terror expanded; Pakistan Tehreek e Taliban a ban outfit emerged.
However, ironically Pakistan bored losses of precious lives, economy.
In return Pakistan has been credited in providing safe sanctuaries to terrorists whom President Donald Trumps discredits as “Agents of chaos”: the mere mistrust.
