That's fine. Have a worse 9/11 attack (or variation thereof). Besides, this TL couldn't be as bad as A Giant Sucking Sound got (especially for Japan in 1995).
My my, in a dystopic mood, are we? Don't you think America needs some time to recover from the Duke debacle? In any alternate history with a sense of justice, having that racist scum getting elected anything higher than dogcatcher should be worse than any one nation deserves.
But then again, I cannot comment on things to come. Only hint at it.
