Free Essays on Terrorism: Bomb The Bastards Back to the Stone Age - Bomb The Bastards Back to the Stone Age The terrorists groups Hamas and al-Qaida have their foundations in Islam. Both of these organizations have interpreted the teachings of Islam in a violent manner. Al-Qaida calls for the founding of a "pan-Islamic Caliphate" to overthrow and expel Westerners". Hamas views any attempts at peace as turning over control to "non-believers", and they refuse to take part in any efforts for peace. Bill Clinton's previous inaction on embassy bombings and terrorists' threats has never prevented further violent action by either one of these groups....   [tags: September 11 Terrorism Essays] 360 words

Stop the Cycle of Terrorism - Stop the Cycle of Violence "How many times must the cannonballs fly before they're forever banned?" was the question posed by Bob Dylan well over thirty years ago. His poetic words still ring true today. The attacks on the World Trade Center and Washington D.C. don't make me any prouder to be an American. They make me realize that the world is more barbaric than ever. The saddest part of the whole attack is that we still live in a world where such acts are possible.

It was hours before "crime" changed to "war" with "casualties," "enemies," "military action," "war powers," and so on. Donald Rumsfeld and other administration officials have pointed out that this situation does not fit our understanding of a "war."

Free Terrorism Essays: It is Time to Take Out Saddam Hussein - Terrorism: It is Time to Take Out Saddam Hussein Following the tragedy of September 11, America has launched a 21st century war to eradicate the threat of international terrorism. Terrorism, long a problem for many nations of the world, was all but foreign to U.S soil. September 11th was the first major attack on mainland American soil since the War of 1812. The barbarity of the crime, the toll on innocent lives, and our lack of preparedness for the threat has scared the country to unity, and has scared the rest of the free world into assisting President Bush in "finding the evildoers," "smoking them out of their caves," and "bringing them to justice." The United States has started in Afghanistan, targeting Osama bin Laden, his al Qaeda network, and the Taliban government that supported and sheltered him....   [tags: September 11 Terrorism Essays] 781 words

I would just like to bring a particular comment to your attention. In the National Review, syndicated columnist Ann Coulter wrote: "We should invade their countries; kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We aren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians....   [tags: September 11 Terrorism Essays] 793 words

One might think of kidnapping, assassination, bombing, or even genocide and guerrilla warfare. Because it is such a broad and complex issue, an all-encompassing definition is hard to formulate. The United States Department of Defence defines terrorism as… The calculated use of violence or the threat of violence to inculcate fear; intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious or ideological....   [tags: Terrorism Terrorist Definition Criminology Essays]

President Bush quickly realized that the active cooperation of other countries, including Muslim countries, was essential to the intelligence and policy work needed to find terrorists and destroy their networks....   [tags: September 11 Terrorism Essays] 826 words

Response to Terrorism: Military Vengeance or Positive Actions? - Response to Terrorism: Military Vengeance or Positive Actions. The issues raised by September 11 are less about constitutional war powers than about war wisdom. Under national and international law the President has legal authority to react in self-defense against this invasion of our territory. Even the most vigorous critics of executive power concede that under the Constitution the President is empowered, in Madison's words, to "repel sudden attacks." One might quibble over whether "repelling" an attack, which in the eighteenth century would have been a land or naval invasion by a foreign state, extends in this era to a military response outside the United States to an attack by unknown forces, but the principle supporting the legitimacy of an immediate response of a military nature seems implicit in the original understanding of executive power....   [tags: September 11 Terrorism Essays] 863 words
