Every American citizen can remember exactly where they were on the day September 11, 2001, this day was burned into the mind of American because the biggest terrorist attack in American history would occur. Two Boeing planes hijacked by a terrorist organization named al-Qaeda who would crash the planes into the world trades centers, sending America into shock(Pizzo,2016). There have been countless laws and regulations passed in America since the awful terrorist attacks on 9/11, has it been effective or a failure. The attack on September 11, 2001, will forever be a turning point in American history, it raised one of the most important questions in American society today what is more import for a citizen freedom or security and the law put in place to combat these horrific terrorist attack ultimately would be ineffective and tear American more apart on political issues.
On September 11, 2015 the greatest act of terror known was committed at the World Trade Center, as well as the Pentagon. The terrorist group known as al-Quaeda coordinated an attack by hijacking U.S. commercial flights and sending two planes into the World Trade Center and another into the Pentagon. Luckily, a fourth flight was retaken by the passengers and could not reach its target, yet sadly it crashed in a Pennsylvanian valley. This event broke the hearts of American citizens and citizens worldwide, and the actions coming after wards would have a huge impact on America.
On September 11th 2001, the United States was hit with a devastating blow when four commercial airplanes were hijacked by Al-Qaeda terrorist who deliberately crashed two of the planes into the World Trade Center complex, and a third plane into the Pentagon. The fourth plane, headed for Washington D.C., instead crashed in Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 lives were lost on this egregious day. In response, President George W. Bush waged the controversial “Global War on Terrorism” which turned out to be a self-inflicted wound for America, bleeding still today. Bush’s highly-criticized decision was inconsistent with the strategic principles of war.
September 11, 2001, the start of terrorism in The United States, and the end of innocence in our lives. Some of us are lucky to never know the fright of that horrid day. For others though, the events that transpired on September 11 will live on forever in their memory.
The United States has been in a national state of emergency fighting a war on terrorism since September 11, 2001. The intelligence communities have pursued and tracked down terrorist suspects who pose a direct threat to this country, yet one of the greatest threat to this country is the astronomical number of mass shootings and hate crimes that have occurred in this country post 9/11.
9/11 was a tragic, dark time for many american citizens. The feelings lost ones are ever present along with the aftermath of these events. Could 9/11 have a good outcome? I believe it may with it causing many life saving advances such as modern airport security, a war on terror, and surveillance
9/11 is probably one of the most devastating things to have happened during my lifetime. The attack on the twin towers caused so many Americans to lose their lives including the brave men and women who stepped up to help. I believe that this event brought Americans closer together as we stood together to help support the victims and their families. Because of this I believe that the people who were alive to witness the fall of the towers now are more patriotic in a way than the people who were born after and learned about it from the ones that were here to live through it.
September 11, 2001 will forever be known as an infamous and tragic day Americans will unquestionably remember. On this day, three planes filled with innocent civilians, were hijacked and crashed into significant sites. The three places the hijacked planes collided with were the Twin Towers in New York City, and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. In addition, the terrorists orchestrating the whole attack scheduled a fourth plane to collide into another aimed target. Fortunately, though unlike the other hijacked planes, the mission was unsuccessful. The passengers on the plane fought against the terrorists and eventually surpassed their power, landing the plane in Pennsylvania. Though this may have been a slight victory and prevented worse outcomes, it did not outweigh the devastating results of the collisions. Inside the Twin Towers and the Pentagon,
September 11h of 2001 was the most terrifying and memorable day for Americans. This event shook the world because nobody would have ever expected these atrocious actions that happen that day. Two of those four planes crashed into the north and south tower called “The Twin Towers” located in New York. The remaining planes had two other goals. One of those planes crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense) located in Arlington, Virginia. The final plane failed to crash into the White House because the passengers overcame the hijackers and made the plane crash into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. More than 2000 people died and 6000 thousand were injured. The events on September 11 made Americans hate the Islamic culture, causing the U.S. government to impose stricter requirements for immigration and making them fortify their defenses against terrorist groups
Smoke bellows into the sky, children cry. Everyone stands in awe and shock as they see, one shadow of a person jump, one by one of the two 110 story buildings. 9/11 is one of the U.S devastating moments. To many people died. The young and old. The two hijacked planes showed no mercy as they soared 500 miles per hour into the Twin Towers. 9/11 was where Osama Bin Laden targeted people, who never knew what their terrible fate would be.
The Iraqi war was highly unjustified, the imposition of the American forces in the Iraqi soil was uncalled for, and it bred a lot of hostility between the Middle East and the United states that resulted in acts of terrorism against the United States. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi people were killed including civilians
In both The Prince and The Discourses, Machiavelli presents very specific advice on how a ruler can maintain stability and control over his newly acquired state. Machiavelli lived in a time when a ruler could come to possess another kingdom through the simple act of war. Yet, in our modernity, a ruler cannot simply declare war and occupy a territory. He must also face repercussions from the other world powers that are in existence today. Our time has evolved and a ruler now has to take into consideration the opinions of other world powers along with the opinion of other global organizations such as NATO and the United Nations. In terms of the United States and their policies towards Afghanistan and Iraq, Machiavelli would disagree in the
The world has been changed forever since the tragic attack on September 11, 2001. An observer described the atrocity by saying, "It just went 'bam,' like a bomb went off. It was like holy hell (CNN 1). " The new world will be different from what any American has known before. A new war has arisen, not against a foreign country or a major region of the world, but rather against a select group of people who have the capabilities to destroy the lives of so many. The war against terrorism which the United States is now forced to wage will not be an easily won battle. This war will not be fought solely on scattered battlefields in certain countries. It will instead permeate through every aspect of life as we
Ever since the beginning of the terrorist attacks on American soil, the War on Terror has been involved in the lives of Americans and nations near us. The War on Terror’s background originated through conflicts between warring countries in the Middle East; U.S. involvement started when a terrorist guided plane crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 in New York City. The attack was suspected to be the work of the middle-eastern terrorist group Al-Qaeda. The U.S. military, under the leadership of then commander-in-chief George W. Bush, declared a “War on Terror” on the terrorist group and the fighting began.
