On the other side, bin Laden had very many followers, including all of those in Al- Qaida. The terrorist group demonstrated old Islamic beliefs, but abused them with new technology (Graham para. 3). Many people look up to him and say that he demonstrated how to use power and not conform to others. Also, Al-Qaida members believe that the assassination was unjust because he was not armed during the invasion by U.S troops.
There are far too many attacks to explain them all. The most violent and was on September 11, 2001. Four planes were hijacked. 2 of those planes were crashed into each of the twin towers in New York, USA. One of them flew into the pentagon right outside of Washington, D.C.
Every action matters and can change the outcome depending on how we perceive and respond to one’s actions. Modern-day America can relate to the characters in The Crucible due to the hysteria that is always forming. America as a nation responds differently to different terrorist groups opposed to terrorist attacks. In both instances, they threaten our way of life similarly to how the idea of witchcraft had threatened the religious aspect of a Puritan’s life. For a terrorist group, negative images and emotions are received since it gives America the lack of security notion.
Attila the Hun was the ruler of the Huns from 434 to 453. He was an extremely powerful fighter and often fought simply to gain riches and to instill fear. Many saw him as a psychopathic killer while few saw his reason and success in killing. He was given the name “Scourge of God.” In many ways Attila was like a modern-day terrorist, he thrived off other people’s fear, he killed mostly just to instill fear. Attila had a brother named Bleda, who co-ruled with him, until, Attila wanted sole power over the Huns and killed his brother.
Bertrand Russell, a British philosopher, says "Religion is based primarily and mainly upon fear... Fear is the basis of the whole thing – fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death"(Carlisle). Thus, when everything is controlled by religion in the society it would also mean it is controlled by fear. Religion creates an excuse for anything they do and fear of going against what religion is telling people to do makes them very easy to manipulate. Gilead is proof that how people change the religion, Bible in this case, in order for it to fit their narrative and use it to oppress others.
Both of these events showed how some other countries felt about the United States, and its citizens. Also these attacks showed how religion plays apart in the actions of others, and their culture reflects their political beliefs. Mutually these events are alike because they initiated the emotions of fear and hatred amongst the citizens
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.
One of those consequences include people joining actions that are against the United States (Source K). People often join terrorists groups who are against the United States due to seeing their loved ones injured or killed because of drone attack (Source K). Now, al Qaeda in Yemen is rapidly spreading and merging due to rage at the U.S. counterterrorism policy (Source K). Two people who were nicknamed “Underwear Bomber” and the “Times Square Bomber” tried to set off bombs because their anger at the drone strikes conducted by the U.S. (Source
How has 9/11 Changed American Culture? September 11, 2001 was a harrowing event that took place in New York City, NY. Two foreign terrorists hijacked four planes that were flying above New York, two of which were flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. A third terrorist plane crashed into the Pentagon, a paramount government building located in Washington, DC. The fourth and final plane crashed into a nearby field a few miles outside of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
Terrorist campaigns were climbing in decades prior to 9/11. A group of terrorists attacked New York’s World Trade Center on February 26, 1993. The aim of this attack was to drive two bomb loaded trucks into the basement of a building to bring down both of the towers of the World Trade Center. The mission was not accomplished, but the attack did kill six people. The organizer of this attack was Ramzi Yousef, whose uncle went on to be the operational commander of the attack at the World Trade Center on 9/11.
(Vox para. 4) The assassination of Osama bin Laden was completely justified. He was an awful mad who killed thousands of people without a second thought and brought shame and hatred to his own religion. Although his followers argue he was a man of faith and did everything for Allah, his death brought peace to millions. He caused so much pain, grief, and terror in our world and when he was announced dead, everyone felt safer and more comfortable in the places they
Each plane had a distinctive destination. These locations included The World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and an undisclosed location, which we will never know. The terrorist had a calculated plan and initiated an attack so horrible that three hundred and forty three firefighters and paramedics lost their lives. Twenty three New York City police officers and thirty seven Port Authority police officers were also killed. Could we have had less casualties if we, our nation, was better prepared?
On this day 4 American planes were hijacked by terrorists. These ¾ planes had hit some pretty important buildings that killed lots of people. The first plane had hit the World Trade Center. The second plane had hit the Twin Towers. The third one hit the Pentagon.
September, 11th 2001 4 planes are hijacked and crashed into the 2 World Trade Centers, the Pentagon, and a field in Philadelphia. 2,997 dead and over 6,000 people injured are the result of the horrific terror attack called 9/11. This is the biggest terror attack in U.S. history and has been for the past 15 years. 9/11 was not the only attack on the World Trade Center of its time. “Shortly after noon on Feb. 26, 1993, a bomb planted in a van parked in the center’s underground parking garage exploded, killing six people and wounding more than 1,000” (Carmen Taylor) 9/11 terrorist all had their own part to play in the World Trade Center plot.most of the hijackers took flight lessons before they took action.
By this standard, Al Qaeda’s attack on the United States on September 11,2011 was a success in that they created a chaos big enough to last in the minds of everyone for eternity. In In order to kill America’s pride, wealth and power, four hijacked planes, with a total of 246 passengers, were turned into bombs and flown into American symbols. Three planes crashed into the World Trade towers in New York City and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth plane was supposedly on track to attack the White House, but, crashed in a Pennsylvania field. A New York rescue worker exclaimed that, “We 're going to look on this as the day everything changed… It just feels like nothing’s ever going to be the same” as a result of the thousands of passengers on the airplanes, policemen, firefighters, emergency workers and regular civilians who died that day without doing anything wrong (Stewart 10).
