911 -- 15 years on

By Duncan Mil

September 11, 2016 - On September 11, 2001, coordinated attacks by Al Qaeda terrorists killed 2,977 people in New York City, at the Pentagon in the U.S. capital and on Flight 93 in Pennsylvania.

Now 15 years later, the world is embroiled in seven wars which grew out of 9/11. From Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen to Libya, Somalia, North Africa and Syria, teenagers worldwide have grown up in a never-ending state of war.

Of 88 plots and attacks against U.S. homeland, 82 have either failed or been stopped since December 2001. Six have been fatal.
