Maybe they were being too proud and this is why the Taliban believe it is justifiable to kill innocents, or they chose to attack now because America was just feeling safe. Whatever the reason, we will never know. In 2002, the world changed forever. Anthrax, a biological weapon was released into the postal system and a commercial aircraft was turned into a 1000 tonne missile. War will have a new face, it will not be against an enemy firing projectiles, but instead, an invisible, deadly network of shadows attacking miscellaneous targets in random locations.
After finding out all the hijackers belonged to a regime called Al Qaeda, a terrorist organization that had been responsible for many other attacks and threatened the U.S. prior to the September 11th attacks. I could not help but to think what is going to stop this from happening again. It must have been clear to the hijackers that there mission was suicide but yet they still volunteered. If there are people out there in the world that hate the United States so much that they are willing to die to inflict pain upon its citizens. How can we possibly stop them?
The only way to make sense of this seemingly revenge-like behavior is comparing it to a situation like someone shooting or vandalizing one 's house. One would not ignore that behavior; rather one would approach the perpetrator and completely obliterate their property to show them to never mess with them again. The use of the atomic bomb was a way to let any potential enemy stop while they are ahead because at the click of one button a whole country can suffer huge devastation. Not only did the Japanese cause traumatic strife for America, but also they brought the nation into a war that we were purposefully avoiding. So America took advantage of new weaponry and destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki to show the world to not mess with American grounds ever again.
I agree with the article because it has a clear vision of what the United States didn't try to do before it started bombing Afghanistan. The United States, first of all, should stop the bombing, change its international policies in the Middle East, and stop the continuous help to Israel. " First, Stop the Bombing". First of all, let's start with the purely practical considerations, the bombs are not going to kill Osama Bin Laden (who is almost certainly hiding somewhere safely out the line of fire), nor the Taliban leaders, they are hiding too. The direct consequence of the bombing is that, many innocent civilians, who do not support Osama Bin Laden or the Taliban leaders, will be killed.
Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward. And freedom will be defended.” –President Bush directly after the 9/11 attacks (Tsimelkas). The government issued extreme changes in the military system and the surveillance ... ... middle of paper ... ...hey would probably not speak to them anymore so they do not get accused. In America when 9/11 happened whenever someone saw Muslims they would think they were a terrorist (Grover). The difference between the two topics is that the aftermath of 9/11 is sudden change in circumstances.
Is it Terrorism to Attack Terrorists? Terrorism is politically motivated violence intended to intimidate and terrify. When U.S. embassies were bombed in Kenya and Tanzania, Washington decided to retaliate. On Aug. 20, 1998, the U.S. launched military strikes at what they believed were terrorist-related bases in Afghanistan and Sudan. They believed these groups played a key role in the embassy bombings.
These factors that justified war in Iraq was the refusal to corporate with UN inspectors, and the harsh punishments that the Iraqi government imposed on its citizens. The ignorance that Saddam ruled by was dictated throughout his country during the time he commanded the Iraqi government. In retrospect’s Saddams dictator ship imposed possible future problems with national security. Although this possibility of future crisis could have happened, I believe other diplomatic diplomacies could have diverted the war from ever happening. Saving millions of people’s lives before the bombing and invasion took place.
The Patriot Act needs to be strengthened following the Marathon Bombing last year. The Boston Marathon Bombing has been the biggest act of terror on American soil since September 11th and just 12 years after the Patriot Act was created in order to prevent events like this from happening. While the FBI was presented information years before regarding one of the bombers from the FSB and CIA, they decided to close the assessments. If the Department of Justice is going to have large sums of money allocated, 68.9 billion dollars in 2013, and little restrictions into surveillance they have to be thorough with their procedures and not take such costly risks.
The establishment of the American power into the Middle East is the result of a clear event: the corruption of the government and the conspiracy of 9/11. “Tonight, we are a country awakened to danger and called to defend freedom…” (George W. Bush) From the identities of the terrorists, to the total disappear of two of the four planes, to the stall of the most powerful defense of the entire world, to the causes of the fall of the three towers, this official version presents a lot of dark points that nobody has been able to clarify. So what is the truth? What has really happened on 9/11? Nobody will ever know the real truth but thank to the freedom that our Nation still e... ... middle of paper ... ...11news.com/PresidentBushSpeech.htm Jamie McIntyre - http://www.911myths.com/html/jamie_mcintyre_and_the_pentago.html Lesley, Clark.
It was not until August of 1996 when Bin Laden issued a fatwa a declaration war upon the US, following the June bombing of a US Air Force Installation in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 service members and wounded 515 people (Hellman.) He laid out the multitude of reasons why the group has purposely targeted the United States and its allies. The fatwa outlines 7 major reasons with a multitude of sub reasons concurrent with his main points. His first is that of “we” as in the western world attacked them first and they are only resisting foreign aggression. The remainder of his reasons includes everything from our exploitation of Islamic countries resources and economies to moral issues such as the acceptance of homosexuality, porn, sex for pleasure and so on that we commonly accept.
