At the time of the Terrorist attacks, people were afraid of what else the terrorists were planning or could do and so George Bush sent troops in to look for Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). In hindsight the war on Iraq was a bad idea. The situation was handled poorly, far too much money was spent, and there were far too many casualties to say that the war was a good idea to enter into. To continue war efforts and gain support, lies were spread about finding actual weapons. Later in the war it was revealed that there were never any WMDs.
Westerners brand them as terrorists, they brand themselves as freedom fighters; people argue both ways on this topic. 9/11 was just one of the many effective displays of terror that they can cause among the Western powers. Islam also has interesting teachings, which turns some people into fanatics or zealots; driving them to commit such atrocities. Islamic Fundamentalism is the bad idea of mixing religion with politics, resulting in dictators who hate the U.S and most likely secretly support Al-Qaeda Thus resulting in the West generalizing the Arabic population as just being mindless terrorists. The attacks located at the Benghazi Embassy, another freighting display of power.
It was the Muslim Extremist group of Al-Qaeda. Because of this hatred towards them the average Muslim has been made to change their way of life, “Many Muslims in America live in terror o... ... middle of paper ... ...ime will tell.

After the terrorist attacks, they’ve brought worry and fear to many Americans in the past years and even up till today, They put blame on the Government for not increasing our security and privacy. All though it’s natural to think negative and believe the worst about Muslims after the horrific attacks, we need to at least give them a chance and move away from 9/11. Americans know little about the ways of being Islam.
In that case it is unfair, because not all Islamic religions support killing, and suicide bombing. The first amendment gives everyone the freedom of religion, expression, and speech. However, many individuals are discriminated against in the workplace because of their religious beliefs. If a persons' religious beliefs has nothing to do with their work ethic, why is it considered an issue? During, and after 9/11 Muslims became the butt end of all jokes on tonight shows, and sometimes in general conversation.
Many people think the 9-11 attack is just like any other terrorist attack, but it is not true. The attack into the Twin towers is different than any others attack that happen in our history. To quell the anger and the grief of thousands Americans, the president at a time, George W. Bush declared the war on terrorism, which many people want that there was a war on Iraq. At first, a lot of Americans believe the war in Iraq is the right choice and they go for the Bush’s action, they supported that ideas. But many years go on with the war in Iraq and many people began to have doubts on the war in Iraq now.
Now, because of the destruction of the old Iraqi society, for the first time in centuries, power is in the hands of the Iraqi Shiites. When regarding foreign affairs, I’m considered myself to follow the constructivism theory. Hook and Spanier spells it out well on how Americans “lack historical and cultural understanding” of other sates, which allowed the setbacks in Vietnam and now in Afghanistan. How can the US coexist with other nations within the international community? Polls have shown the majority of Americans feel the War on Terror is misplaced, invoking the debate on how similar it is to the Vietnam War.
(Heuvel) Later, the Bush Administration stated that Iraq possessed terrible weapons of mass destruction. Secretary of State Colin Powell was sent to the United Nations, to make the Bush administration's case for preemptive war against Iraq. His case presented several accusations but very little new information or proof that weapons of mass destruction are actually present in Iraq. "Nearly all of his evidence was largely circumstantial or speculative"(Heuvel). Not only will this war take the lives of a nation where over 50% of the population is children under the age of 15, but it will also endanger our own troops because of inexcusable negligence by our government.
Terrorism what a complete disgrace, however people forget one thing that terrorism is not only found in Islam yet also continued in other religions and countries. But then why Islam? Is it because terrorism has been related to Islam just like peace is to war. The terrorist that claim they are Muslim with pride are oblivious, ignorant and it shows their lack of knowledge. The Holy Quran clearly states that: It does not behove a Prophet that he should have captives until he engages in regular fighting in the land.
One of Hussein's weaknesses is negotiating. Negotiating in his terms is to fight it out with as much carnage as possible until his side comes out "victoriously". Repeatedly, Saddam and his government break international convention laws. During his war fought with Iran, the Iraqi army used chemical weapons on the Iranian troops and even on their own Iraqi population. This was seemingly overlooked by the rest of the world because most nations didn't want to see the Ayatollah's Islamic revolution rise.
