The operations, of AQ, target those people (and their property) it considers being kafir (non-Muslims and/or Muslims who are not true to their religion). These targets have been attacked in multiple ways, including the use of suicide bombers. Most of the attacks are conducted simultaneously, possibly to maximise the impact and cause widespread fear among the targeted people (Atran, 2010). Other than the 9/11 attacks, AQ, and its affiliates, have also been known for conducting other spectacular attacks, such as the US embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya in August 1998, the 2002 Bali bombings, the 2004 Madrid train bombings and the London bombings in July 2005, resulting in all cases, in high numbers of casualties. The majority of attacks conducted by AQ have been against ‘soft targets’, consisting predominantly civilians and unarmed individuals.
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.
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
However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
With this bomb we have added a new and revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces. In their present form these bombs are now in production and even more powerful forms are in development.” (Truman 1) By educating the audience, the audience can understand and have more knowledge about why the dropping of the atomic bomb was necessary for society and other countries. By stating repetition and tone, Truman can back up his claim that the atomic bomb saved more lives and shortened the
As a result, the media that cover these events dictate what and how they are shared. However, it only helps to feed our sense of fear towards terrorism as well as fuel the Muslim stereotype. In fact, according to a study on deconstructing the terrorism- news media relationship, “terrorists use media as a tool to gain increased coverage and communicate their message,” but sometimes the news does it for them (Ross). For example, in the UCLA shooting, where two men were killed in a murder-suicide, the news’ portrayal of the situation led many to believe that there were multiple attackers instead of just the one. While this may not directly convey terrorists’ message, it helps to spread unnecessary fear of terrorism in our communities.
The world is constantly plotting against one another. Humans are fueled by greed, rage, and vengeance which lead to each other’s demise. Throughout history it has shown the inciting of their scheming has always lead to consequences; this can range from a single person’s devising to an organization’s conspiring to a government’s plotting. The case against O.J. Simpson is one of the most well-known murder trials. O.J. Simpson was acquitted, but he still had serious consequences for murdering his ex-wife and friend.
Terrorism as stated in the Oxford English Dictionary is “The unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” and calculated is “done with full awareness of the likely consequences.” From this we see that a calculated terrorist is one who made use of violence against civilians, fully understanding the consequences, in order to achieve a political goal. Next we can look into Brown’s motives for his crimes, James N. Gilbert lists 3 points as to what motivates some terrorists “1.Society is sick and cannot be cured by half measures of reform. 2.The state is in itself violent and can be countered and overcome only by violence.
They cannot adapt with that situation and tends to solve it by attempting suicide. Teenagers commit suicide because they cannot cope with the stress related matter such as depression and substances abuse, but counseling session, reading and watching films, and also highest attention from parents can reduce the number of suicide from increasing day by day. The first causes that cause teenagers to attempt suicide are depression. Depression is one part of a large role in suicide.
Once this connection has been made, Orwell evokes further emotion from the audience choosing descriptive diction in a satirical sense in some situations. Orwell states a satirical aside of “At any moment, so the rumour went, some lonely lunatic in a laboratory might blow civilization to smithereens, as easily as touching off a firework” to emphasize how people have been overreacting to the new technology (Orwell 2). He dismisses the idea that many people have access to the technology. The alliteration of lonely lunatic draws attention and makes the statement stand out as well as the simile comparing the ease of setting off a bomb to a firework. Statements that draw the attention of the audience cause further curiosity of what the author will say, and Orwell uses this attention to polarize the audience as well.
In 2001, 19 militants associated with al-Qaeda planned and staged the September 11th attacks in New York City. Prior to the September 11th attacks, the group had been linked to several more attacks including attacks in Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Turkey, Algeria, Israel, the United Kingdom, and many more places. (The Editors of Encyclopedia Britannica 2) All of these attacks trace back to the main mastermind of the group: Bin Laden. He attacked so many more places besides the U.S. which shows his overall threat to the whole world.
Suicide bombers are motivated by their own experiences and other factors that are beneficial to them. Some think that suicide bombers are mentally ill, or psychologically disturbed, because of their self-less act of suicide in a public community; however a suicide bomber can be a person with a normal life, offered an opportunity that comes with beneficial rewards. Political conflict is the main reason for suicide bombings, because of altruism, repression, and religion basis. Suicide bombers who experience severe depression from letdowns, repression can lead to the act of suicide in a public area. Shaker Masri was an attempted suicide bomber in Chicago, IL.
After a terrorist attack of any kind there are always consequences that must be faced. Sometimes the point of the terrorist attacks is because the organization wished to send a message or to influence policy in their favor. However, after the 9/11 attacks administrators realized that the United States was not prepared for a tragedy of this kind and had little to no measures to prevent one, this lead them to create new programs and policies. Terrorist organization’s goal often comes down to one of the following: regime change, territorial change, policy change, social control and status quo maintenance. The main purpose of a terror attack may well be to influence public policy.
The documentary explains why America is prone to gun related deaths, and attempts to persuade the viewer to believe that journalistic media is to blame. "Seeking to explain the fear and paranoia that lead American to arm themselves, Moore casts a wide net, but he avoids some easy targets. Moore dismissed the notion that violent video games play a major role, nothing the popularity of such games in such nations as
On a higher level it impacts our criminal justice system. They are continuously trying to keep these massacres from happening and keep guns out of hands of those mentally ill or incapable of handling a firearm. People slowly lose their faith in the system and that’s bad guys take advantage and assume they can get away with the system. Media is somewhat to be blamed for this because we often get a exaggerated take on certain news that makes people feel more vulnerable to these
