According to bin Laden, “The reason for killing Americans was because of the ‘jihad’, which means religious war. Bin laden stated, the U.S as the “worst civilization by history of mankind.” He went on to
IV. American Military Culture The American Army 's history, composition, and structure predisposed the leadership to a rigid fixation on conventional warfare. In contrast to the British army-as-force-projection model, the American Army found its first task a matter of national survival. This historical trend - the continued perception of the Army fighting a war of annihilation - helped in many ways to keep the Army purely focused on its military objectives. Unconditional surrender was the name of the game, and smaller political goals were seen at best as derivative to, and at worst, preventative of the fabled 'total victory '. The varied composition of personnel which make up the US army also ensured a degree of formality, and a deference to rank. The structure, born of open-combat wars at large scale, was constituted around large divisions, which often rotated officers and manpower in and out. In short, everything within the Army was organized -rigidly- around the principle of a large scale conventional war. What worked against the Germans would work against the Russians.

The wear and appearance of soldiers in the United States Army are while in uniform should be neat. There should be no excess “things” in a person’s pocket but it should lie down flat. The person wearing the uniform should look neat and concise not drawing attention to themselves. Soldiers
Source E focuses on one particular study that was published in 2005. It states, "...if DeShawn Williams and Jake Williams sent identical résumés to the same employer, Jake Williams would be more likely to get a callback." Using this quote from the book Freakonomics, it can be inferred that the employer had a stereotypical opinion on DeShawn Williams merely by looking at his name. Although the résumés contained the same information, the cliché idea that the name DeShawn (which is typically considered a "black" name) sounds like a name that would appear in a low-income, low-education family gave the employer the impression that Jake is more fit for the job in question. Using physical and visual evidence is often enough to create an opinion on someone, but sometimes, very little information is needed. The human brain is hard-wired to always work with what we have, whether that be a little information, or a lot of information. To conclude, it should be known that in order to form an opinion, information is always needed. It just does not have to be restricted into the categories of "visual" and
Osama Bin Laden; the mastermind of 9/11 Christian Hanke December 21, 2012 World History Period 1 Osama Bin Laden changed the world on September 11, 2012, when he orchestrated the 9/11 bombings on the World Trade Center in New York City. He has also formulated many other attacks including the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole, and attacks on the US embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in 1998 (Encyclopedia of World 1). Osama Bin Laden had a negative influence on societies, economies, and religion throughout the world because of his actions in masterminding many radical terrorist attacks, and because he created and funded al-Qaeda.
On 9-11-2001 four airplanes were hijacked by Muslim terrorists. Two of the planes flew into the sides of the twin towers, one flew into the pentagon, and the final plane crash landed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania (“What happened on 9/11?). There were a total of 19 terrorists who hijacked those planes that day (“What happened on 9/11?”). Those Muslim terrorists belonged to an organization called “Al Qaeda” whose leader's name was Osama Bin Laden (“What happened on 9/11?”). Close to 3000 people died that day, by either being trapped in the buildings before
Bin Laden, throughout his piece, frequently used Ibn Taymiyya quotes to add a religious legitimacy to his claim, what’s problematic is that Ibn Taymiyyah was a controversial Sufi that was imprisoned several times, one of which was for being accused of anthropomorphism (ascribing human characteristics to God) and for having criticized, contemptuously, the legitimacy of dogmatic theology (Laoust). Ibn Taymiyya clearly stands in opposition to al-Qaeda’s “Salafists jihadists” doctrine, which empathizes the principle of the absoluteness of God and his image. One of Ibn Taymiyya’s quotes Bin Laden used was “if the danger to religion from not fighting is greater than that of fighting, then it is a duty to fight even if the intentions of some of the fighters are not pure” (Zaman 443), this quote goes against Prophet Muhammad’s teachings and emphasis on good intention, he once said “actions are according to intentions, and everyone will get what was intended”, in this case, if some of the fighters would participate in fighting the USA for the sake of killing soldiers (bad intention), then they are simply considered murders, and such actions should obviously not be encouraged in the name of religion, which invalidates Ibn Taymiyya’s

The events of 9/11 shocked the nation. One of the most highly acclaimed countries in the world was now lost and extremely vulnerable. The last terrorist attack on American soil had been ages ago dating back to Pearl Harbour in 1945, so far back that most Americans were not even alive to remember the incident. Now our nation was in a state of mourning, a feeling that does not come often. Everyone wondered if this was just the beginning or if it would lead to something more drastic. What was the motive or cause of this event? The answer lies in the past of their leader, Osama Bin Laden. Many critics have claimed that the terrorists in the Middle East just wanted to see us suffer and show that they are superior. Thus, they targeted the most symbolic places in our nation:the World Trade Center, the White House, and the Pentagon. The Terrorist attacks on 9/11, resulting in great devastation, can be traced back to Osama Bin Laden’s home environment, and these circumstances explain Osama Bin Laden and his

Military Appearance In this paper I will discuss the importance of why a NCO or Drill Sergeant should maintain proper military appearance and why it is important. The NCO’s Creed first states that “no one is more professional than I”, so I am sure that means more than just appearance. It is a statement that includes mannerism, attitude, professionalism etc. It also says that NCOs are the backbone of the Army, which will also tell you that we serve a critical role. Even though I respect the entire creed, the statement that most stands out to me is” All soldiers are entitled to outstanding leadership; I will provide that leadership. I know my soldiers and I will always place their needs above my own”. Although Drill Sergeants have
