September 11th

      On September 11th  of 2001, 4 planes were kidnapped to destroy the Twin Towers, The Pentagon and perhaps the White House. In that time we were six years old, and we don't remember well how it happened but we saw it a lot of times on TV. Two planes crashed the Twin Towers. When the first crashed the people thought that it was an accident but when the secound crashed, the people believed that it was a terrorist attack.



       It was the first time that they used planes like weapons. The third plane crashed against the pentagon and the fourth exploded in the air.The people thought that they were going towards the White House. There are a lot of theories about this fourth plane. Some people think that maybe they used missiles to make it explode and died little numbers of people of the plane. In the terrorist attack of the Twin Towers many people died. The people thought that the towers wouldn't go down so the firemen and other people went inside to rescue the people that were inside. But it was impossible to rescue the people that were in the final floors. And a helicopter couldn´t rescue these workers because the toxic smoke didn't let them see anything. But finally the two towers fell and a lot of people that were inside died. Later a lot of planes were cancelled.

      This attack happened because the Arabian people thought that the Americans feel that they are the owners of the world. Behind this attack we supposed that was the Islamic group Al Queda represented by Osama Bin Laden. They attacked the twin towers because they were a symbol for the Americans and also were a symbol of the economy. There worked a lot of people with high reputation. And they attacked the Pentagon because it was the most protected headquarter of the world.


      That event had a big impact because it was the first time that USA was attacked in their territory and also because it was the first time that they used planes like bombs. Another reason was that all the world could see it live on TV and the American can´t explain how they attacked USA because this country invested a lot of money in security. All the people were in a constant fright. The government decided to cancel all the flights. Bush the president of that time decided to attack Afganistan, with the excuse that the Talibanes, the government of there, protected Osama Bin Laden, but really they wanted to control the petrol that goes through Afganistan and change the government of Afganistan and put in a new government, allies of the Americans.
