It upset people for a bunch of reasons:
1) it happened over here, not "over there"
2) Everyone got to see it, while in iraq you don't know what's going on for certain, in NY, everyone saw it, with no filter, and that made it more
3) People had the illusion of safety, also ego plays a big part in that, that's why there are so many conspiracies about it being an inside job: "we
are the best/most powerful country in the world, we are perfect, of course it came from the inside, nobody would ever catch us off guard!"
those just off the top of my head, i am sure there are more.
As for the buildings in and of themselves, i do feel that had something to do with it. they were phallic representations of american ingenuity and
vision. had the same amount of deaths occurred in a bunch of smaller buildings, i doubt it would have such on impact.
the attack was, just like the city itself, larger than life.
