The value of counterfactual history lies not in the questions it raises about the past, but the questions it raises about the present and future, and in the reminder that there is nothing inevitable about the world we observe.”
- John Kay

New York Magazine asks the that question after five years (via FP blog);

Without 9/11, would the London plot have been foiled? Without 9/11, would there have been an Iraq war? Without the Iraq war, would there have been a London plot?

The world would have been a much safer place then now. We all know that there were Jewish who were behind this but even though specially Americans who are so mature still are running with their eyes closed.Time is close when their kids will also know the real truth but then it will be too late. Coz at tht time the all the world will be against US.2 bad.
