There are some rather bizarre 911 conspiracy theories circulating. Some of them suggest the happenings on that day were a prelude to apocalypse while others have suggested it was the act of extra terrestrials whose mission is to colonize this planet.
911 refers to a date in history when the USA was attacked by terrorists. Aeroplanes were used as missiles and were deliberately flown into the New York World Trade Centre and also into the Pentagon. There were 2000 American victims as well as others from other countries such as 63 British nationals. The attack was carried out by suicide bombers who also died in the attack.
The event has been described at the worse acts of terrorism every to be carried out on American soil. The scenes that erupted that day are very dramatic even when footage is reviewed 10 years later. It really does play out like the scenes of a disaster movie.
First is the explosion from the explosion from the impact. Then there is the billowing smoke emanating from the towers. Crowds in the locality of the building are gasping, screaming and running. There are pictures from inside the lower part of the building as fire fighters try to organize evacuation. Finally, the world looks on as the twin towers collapse, one after the other.
Many people polled about the events are sceptical about the official account offered by the American Government and believe some of the alternative explanations. According to the theorists the whole thing was actually organized by the American government as an attempt to justify its actions in Afghanistan. They cannot understand how the twin towers could have fallen as a result of the impact and believe the collapse had all the hallmarks of a controlled demolition.
Despite all the 911 conspiracy theories, one fact is without any question. Many innocent people lost their lives that day in the most terrible circumstances. It is a day we will never forget.
