The missing viewpoint is highlighted when it states, “Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima, an important Japanese Army base” (185). The atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima would be told in a much different way from the Japanese perspective. This is an event many Americans felt was necessary to end the war with a country that would fight till death to bring honor. However, many Japanese people felt this was a needless war crime that resulted in deaths of innocent civilians. It is much easier for Americans to relay this event as a factual occurrence, but to those still feeling and have felt the
In 1975 a check of “Lloyd’s of London’s accident records” showed evidence that “the triangle was no more dangerous than any part of the ocean.” Later on United States coasts guards confirmed these statistics (“The Mystery”). Another example, Includes that on December 28, 1948 the passenger plane vanished, with evidence it is shown that the batteries were low on the plane and it could have affected communications (“The Mystery”). Therefore, After the Flight 19 incident there was a lot of speculations of what really happened but truely the five planes got lost and eventually ran out of fuel, it was a cause of human error (“The Mystery”). With many incidents happening at the Triangle, some writers mislead the reader and tell the wrong information. Some writers conclude that there was calm weather or there was no remains founds but it was the opposite (“The Mystery”).
The terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused many debates over the years since they occurred back in 2001. Two American planes were hijacked and ran into the twin tower buildings, another was hijacked and headed for the pentagon, but thankfully never made it. Thousands of Americans lost their lives on the days of the attacks and to this day the sorrow hangs with us. Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.
Initally, al-Qaeda considered targeting nuclear power plants on 9/11, but decided to go against it because they feared it would get too out of control. Four passenger airlines, all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California, were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda members. One plane hit the Pentagon just outside of Washington D.C., the second plane crashed in a field in Pennslyvania, and the last two planes crashed into the Twin Towers. Within one hour and 42 minutes both 110 story towers were completely on the ground, with debris filling the air and fires starting to spread. Numerous other buildings at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan were destroyed or badly damaged.
Changes in society and technology have had an impact on the armed conflict also. The changes of society have made warfare’s more humane. For example, during Wold War II Allied bombers killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in Dresden and Tokyo as a matter of tactics, despite the fact that NATO airstrike in Afghanistan 2010, where nine civilians were killed, made the news as a tragedy and leading the top NATO commander in the country to apologize to Afghan President Hamid Karzai (Goldstein, pp. 3). Furthermore, when today 's civilians do end up in harm 's way, more people are looking out for them.
On January 28th 1986 the space shuttle Challenger launched and exploded only 73 seconds into flight shocking the world and killing the crew of seven. This disaster left the NASA community and its various engineering teams baffled to explain the disaster and some not surprised; while all wanted answers to questions as to why and how this disaster could have occurred, while some already held the data on what could have been the factors for disaster. 2 Research performed indicates there were a number of communication problems both internally with NASA and their Engineering team at Morton –Thiokol Engineering that lead to the disaster in question, specifically poor communication between NASA and the Engineering firm Morton –Thiokol Engineering, the designer of the Solid Rocket Booster (SRB), that was discovered after the accident through analysis of existing and post launch data. More specifically this paper will discuss engineering concerns about O-ring design of the (SRB) brought to the attention of NASA
Memory Hole A small chute in the wall used to carry documents to a large incinerator, in order to censor information and or remnants of the past. For example its say,”He tried to remember in what year he had first heard the mention of Big Brother. He thought it must have been at some time in the Sixties... there was no knowing how much of this legend was true and how much invented... It was not true, for example, as was exclaimed in the Party history books, that the Party invented airplanes... But you could prove nothing.
Several suicide attacks, carried out during the invasion of Leyte, by Japanese pilots from units other than the Special Attack Force, have been described as the first kamikaze attack. Early on the 21st of October, a Japanese aircraft, deliberately crashed into a heavy cruiser. By day 's end on October 26th, 55 kamikazes from the Special Attack Force had also damaged the large escort carriers, which had also been struck by a
This was the plane where the passengers took back control of the plane and had it not reach its target, which was thought to be the White House (“Hampson”). This memorial is the biggest of them, due to the huge back story behind the plane and how the passengers took back control of the plane. This is how the rebuilding of the crash sites changed the landscape of America to the way it is
Even though the attacks on the World Trade Center was well documented and publicized, the FBI confiscated all footage from nearby businesses that may have had video recordings capturing the attacks on the Pentagon. The only evidence of Flight 77
