    So with consultation from @Arthur Marston, I thought it would be interesting to do a visual photo thread for the dystopian scenario of No W written by @Lost Freeway (who unfortunately was banned in September 2017) similar to the photo threads for World War Z, 1983: Doomsday, Fatherland, and Man in the High Castle.

    Anyone is free to join. Reminder there is a three photos per day limit so as not to catch the admin's attention.

    New Year's Eve Ball Drop 2000 in Times Square, New York City. As the ball dropped and the world entered a new millennium, the entire world hoped for a much peaceful 21st century now that the four-decade Cold War ended and America became the world's sole superpower. Things would seem peaceful all until one year, nine months, and 10 days later.

    ABC Footage of the Ball Drop, December 31, 1999-January 1, 2000.

    Eyewitness News' ABC7 NY last footage of the World Trade Center on the evening of September 10, 2001. The headlines were Michael Jordan, a wild high school party that included a stripper, and the New York Giants. No one could have predicted what would happen the next day, a day Sam Champion forecasted as "sunny and pleasant."

    Capitol Hill being evacuated on September 11, 2001 as reports of fourth hijacked plane was on its way to Washington, D.C. The fourth plane identified as United Airlines Flight 93 would crash in a field near Stonycreek Township within Shanksville Borough, Somerset County, Pennsylvania after reports of a passenger revolt. The plane was 12-20 minutes away from D.C. before it went down.

    The captured U.S. Navy EP3-C Orion at Hainan Island after it collided with PLAAF fighter jet. The crew were detained by Chinese authorities after a forced emergency landing and were held for 11-days before being released. This incident known as the "Hainan Island incident" tested U.S.-China relations, presenting a challenge to President John McCain. However, the plane was dissected and returned by parts, in which the U.S. accused of stealing classified information from the maritime patrol plane.

    Indian security forces responding to the Parliament attack on December 13, 2001. This would be the catalyst for the India-Pakistan nuclear exchange in the days to come.
