Rahul Bagga Mr.Campbell US History, Period 0 16 December 2015 Why did Japan attack Pearl Harbor? One day that will always be remembered by America is the date of December 7, 1941, which changed American history forever. December 7, 1941 was the day the Japanese warplanes attacked Pearl Harbor (Hawaii) which stationed many of American ships and airfields. Immediately after the bombings, United States President Franklin Roosevelt declared war on Japan, leading to a direct involvement into World War ll. Japan had many reason to do so but Japan attacked Pearl harbor for three reasons which were that they had a plan for a new world order, United States were expanding their number of naval ships rapidly, and an oil embargo was placed upon Japan
The terrorist attacks on September 11 2001 were a sad day for our nation, yet it showed the vulnerabilities in the Americans emergency management system. President Jimmy Carter made a good effort with the creation of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), but as 9/11 proved FEMA was not equipped to management terrorist threats. The nation needed something fay beyond what FEMA could offer, which lead to the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. Historically, major disasters have always prompt change in the American culture take for example the attack on Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor enhanced Americans drive towards technology and Science.
The attacks of the World Trade Centers and the Pentagon on September 11th resulted in the legislative response of the Patriot Act. The USA Patriot Act signed into law by both congress and George W. Bush on October 26, 2001, exactly a month and fifteen days after the terrorist attack. Solemnly, the Patriot Act was altered to strengthen U.S.measure to deter and punish terrorist acts against the United States. The Patriot Act was intended to "enhance the penalties that will fall on terrorists or anyone who helps them," the words of George W. Bush. I believe the intents of
government took crucial steps in securing the nation from terrorism. President W. Bush stated, “They saw liberty and they saw weakness. And now, they see defeat.” September 11, 2001, brought a sense of defeat in the country and immediate change was necessary. He introduced the federal government organization known as the Transportation Security Administration. Police officers were responsible for securing the transportation systems and tightened airplane security.
America has gone through difficult times with war, but has gone through harder times with the war on terror. Terrorism is defined as the use of terror or threat. The war on terror became a big deal on December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was bombed by hundreds of Japanese fighter planes, but has been a bigger deal since that attack on the Twin Towers in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.. The bombing of the Twin Towers and to the Pentagon was like a Pearl Harbor but for the 21st century. Terrorist turn to violent means such as killing and bombing of the government.
As time elapsed from September 11, 2001, the public began to break ideas about who was to blame for the attacks on September 11. A vast majority believed that the 9/11 attacks were solely to blame from the Islamist radical group, Al-Qaeda, a terrorist regime that sought to rebel against western civilization norms and enact their hate among the United States. The other idea, which is highly noted as a conspiracy theory, was that government knew the terrorist attacks were likely to happen and the only reason the government took a back seat was to conduct a reason to mobilize troops into the war-riddled Middle East. Whether the public believed either or, a paranoia was created, later to be recognized as Post-9/11 Paranoia. This paranoia would harbor certain ideals in American brains, creating a specific view and caution for certain areas, actions and personnel.
This is how America during the Cold War era overthrew Iran. “All knew they had changed the course of Iranian history (128).” This was not really a success because we invaded their territory because the British told America that Mossadegh was a communist and was not really clear as to why they needed American help. During the Invasion era, Reagan was awakened up early morning to hear devastating news, a Marine camp was blown up by a suicide bomber in Lebanon. Days before, Reagan approved of entering, but he could back out if he wanted. This event “intensified the desire of many Americans for some kind of revenge (223),” Americans wanted to show how strong our nation had become and wanted to prove
First, 9/11 weakened our economy. We spent millions of dollars after this event not only on defense efforts, but also on war efforts in retaliation to those responsible. Our number one focus became keeping our country safe. Secondly, after 9/11, we made our airport security tighter. We lost a lot of trust in the safety
3 Attacks that I think changed America’s Transportation Have you ever wondered why America has gotten more secure in transportation or traveling? My answer is because of terrorists attacks. I will be talking about 3 terrorists attacks that I think changed the way America looked at transportation. 9/11 was the most important attack that changed America. On this day 4 American planes were hijacked by terrorists.
In the midst of potential war and terror many are worried of what the future holds. This is how the American people felt after the terrible terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001. The government had to think fast and make brash decisions to protect our country, and The Patriot Act (during the time) was the best solution. The Patriot Act was one of the fastest acts passed, many government officials were only thinking of the present, and ways to prevent foreign attack. The act has been edited several times over the years due to many mistakes of violating individual’s rights.
9/11 in New York is the historical tragedy memory to friends and family. This event have shocked many people lives and will not be forgotten. It also affected the market, building, and business. In addition, it left businesses, offices,people who lived apartments, and neighbors being bankrupt, jobless, and homeless. Terrorists caused a huge impact corrupting buildings and innocent lives.
On 9/11 NORAD board said they learned of the hijacking in time to order the jets. Some people believe that NORAD ordered the defense system to “abandon” the mission, because of their lack of attendance during the attacks. Planes Didn’t Make Twin Towers Collapse, Bombs
Consequently, the Several days later after the 9/11 attack, the U.S. passed the USA PATRIOT Act which is an acronym for “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism” (Stan, 2014). The Department of Justice drafted the USA PATRIOT Act to increase the federal agencies’ power to use surveillance cameras, conduct search and detect communication both nationwide and from foreign countries to seek out terroristic attacks. In addition, the president that signed this into law was President George W. Bush. In addition, most people would not want the government to secretly spy on them.
The attacks of September 11, 2001 on our country was one of the most tragic and deadly days in our history. It brought a country together and the American strength of freedom and unity became a battle cry. After the dust had cleared, the questions came about that asked, how could this have happened? Were there not security and intelligence infrastructures and policies in place? Where did these failures occur?
Fifteen years ago on 9/11 our world faced a tragic event we wouldn’t soon forget. On 9/11 our World Trade Center that is located in the great state of New York were brought down by Osama BIn Laden and his clan Al Qaeda. This moment in history played a big part in shaping our country today. The attack on 9/11 shaped our country not only by the destroying of the buildings but also by the people we lost in the event. The attack
