      •  Sure (0+ / 0-)
        -war on Afghanistan (47,950 killed, low estimate)
        -war on Iraq (182,462 killed, lowest estimate)
        -car accidents (around 360,000 deaths since 9/11 in the U.S. alone)
        -bad health care (around 400,000 deaths since 9/11 in the U.S. alone)
        -AIDS (around 15 million deaths since 9/11)
        -world hunger (around 300 million deaths since 9/11)

        Need I go on? There are tons of things worse than 9/11, in several orders of magnitude.

        The only truly horrible thing about 9/11 is the mass hysteria it created that still exists today, and has killed far more people than the event itself.
