The terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and Washington DC have been considered as an act of war and a loss for the United States, a loss for the United States that must not be allowed to happen again and that must be avenged.

One thing is sure: the attack on the Pentagon was much less effective, much less damaging than the attack on the World Trade Center. Only a part of the building was damaged. Significantly less people were killed, and the most important parts of the Pentagon were unaffected.
