Good evening. Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.
Today I will be telling you about the attacks of 9/11. The attack happened on september 11, 2001. This was a very tragic day in history for everyone. This was the day in history that our twin towers/world trade center and the pentagon got hit with airplanes by a group called Al Qaeda’s. These terrorist had been living in the United States for awhile we just didn't know they had this bombing planned. Two pilots had tried to warn everyone else but, these terrorist got to them first. They had planned on hijacking 5 planes and making them crash but only got to 4. Two of which crashed into the twin towers. A lot of people died in this crash. This spread fast through the newspapers, television, or through the people. Lots of families lost their
2,966 people died on September 11th, 2001. When a man named Osama Bin Laden launched a terrorist attack on the United States of America. Four planes were hijacked and crashed into the Twin Towers, The Pentagon, and the last was thought to be heading toward the White House. But the courageous men and women on the plane stopped them, and crash landed in a field in Pennsylvania. Here, you will here about Nikki Goughnour, she was 24 on 9/11. And she remembers that she was at home, sleeping, when her husband woke her up and told her that the USA was under attack.
Much has been made of terrorism and political crime lately. Since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center buildings and the Pentagon most have asked questions such as: How could this happen? Why would someone do this to so many innocent people? And possibly even more importantly, how do we prevent this from happening again? The attacks on that tragic day weren’t the first in our country though they were the most devastating to date. They were devastating in accordance with casualties and also emotionally for the whole country. One could only hope they would be the last, though this has not been the case. Before one can begin to analyze how the United States should combat such a horrific form of warfare and political change, one must first start to understand a few key elements. One must begin to understand what terrorism is, where it came from, and why terrorism exists.
A man it held up by a rope, blindfolded, and guards force him to stay awake while embarrassing and chastising him for hours; on end until he confesses or reveals information that will be helpful in fighting the War on Terror. The image, I am setting up for you is one of the techniques written in the torture memo on how to deal with terrorists and fight the War on Terror. When the memo got leaked, it created controversy among Americans. They saw how these alleged prisoners were being tortured. This incident raised many questions such as, how does the state get the power to use violence? How is this act of violence legal? And how is the war on terror so different that they have to change their techniques for war? To answer this question,
Terrorism continues devastatingly in the United States to this day and has increasingly become a more major concern. Starting in 1886 with the Haymarket Affair, a bombing that killed 12 in Chicago, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of terrorist attacks since then. The 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center was a preface to many other terrorist attacks to follow, for example, 9/11. The destruction of this attack gave the United States a reason to fear more massacres and allowed us to increase security and protection of our nation. The biggest terrorist attack in the United States to this day is the 9/11 plane attack on the World Trade Center Towers that killed close to three thousand innocent citizens. What many people do
Imagine waking up and seeing the Twin Towers being hit by airplanes and seeing mass destruction in the city. What would you do? How would you feel? What would you say if you were the President of the United States at the time that horrendous attack occurred? “ One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in America's history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.” 9/11 was a very tragic and scary day for a lot of people and many people lost their lives and some are still dealing with the effects today. It would be very sad seeing the lives taken by this attack and also scary because you didn’t know if there were any other attacks to follow. Due to the events that happened that day, many things had to be changed in order to prevent another attack from occurring again.
On September 11, 2011, the United States was rocked with a terrorist attack unlike any other to its date or since. As a nation we grieved and mourned the loss of those that died that day and in the following days from the event. While terrorism was nothing new on this date, terrorism has been around in some form or another since the time man began inhabiting the earth. Terrorism has never been something that the US has been free from, but it is something that the US viewed very differently from that date on.
The overwhelming majority of the world’s nations, including United States are signatories to at least one international agreement that condemns terrorism. The question comes to mind as why terrorism is growing and not coming to an end, and what are the intentions of the terrorist groups. There are many factors in the development of domestic terrorisms, however, there are several causes on the growing terrorism and there is a need to find the principal factors responsible for causing this growing threat. In addition, it is important to save the world and to save our next generation from being victims in the hands of terrorism. Many are the risk factors involved in the development of domestic terrorism. Additionally, it is important to remember that terrorism is a tactic practiced by people from a wide array of ethnic and religious backgrounds who follow various ideologies extending from anarchism to
Terrorism is a frightening reality that all people in today’s world must face. While some areas of the world are facing terrorism more than others nearly are regions and all people are facing the violence and devastating effects of terrorism in one form or another.
It is put all over the media about the different terrorist attacks and the different warnings. Due to these warnings there are forty seven percent of people that think it has helped the people, but there is a larger percent, forty nine, who think the warnings they give are just to scare people. There are only a few people in the United States that think there is a good reason to be afraid of terrorist threats. Besides these few people there are multiple people in which believe that they have little to no reason to fear the threats. A few believe it is their duty to not show their fear of these attacks, but there are many more people who believe there is nothing wrong with doing so. The feeling of threat and fear come from terrorism, but another big thing that comes to terrorism is the cost. According to the IMF, also known as the International Monetary Fund, acts of terrorism impact direct and indirect economic costs. Direct costs include the short term things such as the destruction of property and life. This also includes all of the emergency service providers, restoration people to rebuild the building and the costs of a temporary house. Indirect costs are bigger and affect the economy by ruining consumer and investor
The history of terrorism can be traced back as far as the French revolution. Some of these acts of terrorism only seem as distant reminders of our past, but at the same time, are not a far cry from today’s brutal acts; and although these acts seem distant, it doesn’t also mean they are no longer in the thoughts of individuals in today’s time.
Terrorism can affect everyone at any time and place. Even when there is a threat being made in another country, halfway across the world, it affects everyone in some kind of way. It affects everyone because it is a threat to all the people in the world.
Terrorism, which has been around for as long as people can remember, has been on the rise for the past ten years. Terrorists usually use murdering, kidnapping, hi-jacking and bombings to achieve their political purpose. For instance, according to Wikipedia.com (2006), in 1985 816 deaths, then in 2003, more than 1,000 people died by terorist acts around the world. In recent years, terrorism seems to be at a new height and attacks are much more violent than in the past. Unfortunately, in spite of many anti-terror campaigns, projects and organizations are being created for prevention (to prevent) terrorism, the number of terrorists only is increasing. These days terrorism is all over the world.
