Read what it is about and see the date of the topic.

How scary is that?

I just wanted to share it.

I hadn't seen that before. It's morbidly fascinating to read some of the replies. Particularly about the death toll estimates.

Let's just hope something horrible like this will NEVER be repeated again.

Let's just say that Americans won't just sit and stay in their seats if someone tries it again.

I hope you're not implying that the Americans did sit and stay in their seats back then, I mean, just look at how the middle east has changed since then (in a positive way, IMO). In fact, the Dutch government fell over the matter a year or two ago.

The standard policy back then WAS to sit there and do nothing.  Only after passengers on United 93 learned of what is going on did they actually take matters into their own hands.... heroically, I might add.

Ah, you meant inside the aircraft themselves. Yeah, the heroes of United 93 are not soon forgotten.

Certainly not. The United 93 documentary was very impressive. They're real heroes.

How has the middle east changed in a positive way? It went from a place which NATO and OPEC were attempting to get a stranglehold on to a place where NATO and OPEC gained a stranglehold due to the "war against terrorism" Perhaps for NATO it's a good thing, but for the people in the middle east, it has been a steep negative spiral.

Please, try to keep politics and "world order" out of these forum... There are plenty of political/strategic forums all over the internet if you want to discuss this kind of issues, please... :)

If anyone thinks about the complete irony of somebody predicting the exact building and plane that were to get hit a year later, it's really scary. I mean they got the building and plane right.

Besides the fact that it was a 762 and not a 763, yep indeed.
