A warning would be nice, provided there was some efficient organised means to contact and evacuate several million people in the very short time available. That means regular practices and drills for something that has a very low probability of actually ever happening.
Suppose by some fluke, you knew right this very moment that a nuclear device was going to explode in New York in exactly twenty one minutes time. What would you do. Seriously, what could you personally do about it ???
The Police would laugh at you, The Mayor would be in a meeting, the News media would think you were a complete psycho,
Try getting 100 people out of the water on a crowded beach one summers day.
It is easy to blame people after the event, it always is. But the reality probably is, that nothing was actually possible in the short space of time available.

The thing is that when 9/11 happenned all americans cries because 3000 americans were death!! Oh it was serious!! 3000 deaths the most serious disaster in the world!! It's like if you were saying that 3000 americans were more important than 200 000 other people in the world.
And i hate things like that: Every human is equal... a rich american isn't worth 200 ``other nation people`` and you're president isn't worth 1/100 anyone in this world.
So those people who say that 9/11 is the most important tragedy those is just stupid.
