America, the world's most powerful country, was horrified by Al Qaeda on this day in the year 2001 with the 9/11 plane attack. In just 102 minutes, 2763 people lost their lives. Millions of children born on this day across the world have also turned twenty today and it has also been twenty years since the terrorist attack.
It is important for the youth of the world to know that how the terrorists had terrified not only America but the whole world with their cruelty. Under the leadership of President George W. Bush, America started the fight against terror in 2001. During the tenure of President Barack Obama, America avenged this attack on itself by ending al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, but its two-decade-long fight against terror has again come to the same point in Afghanistan, from where had begun.
With the withdrawal of the Taliban in Afghanistan, a new threat of terror has arisen. Ken McCullum, head of Britain's M15 Domestic Spy Service, says that the situation in Afghanistan has given the terrorists a boost again. All countries have to be alert about terrorist incidents. Although the Taliban has said that it will not allow Afghanistan to be used to plot terrorist attacks, the truth is that Afghanistan has become a haven for terrorist attacks on Western countries.
