The 9/11 tragedy was a moment where people had their guard up at all times. This was a time where life had strike to reality of time warfare with every person and country. Couldn’t trust no one that came to the U.S. America is the land of the free and the home of the brave, were brave because the generations before us had to face what had happened and to what is going to happen. This had left the buildings torn instantly killing hundreds of many people, getting them stuck in the higher floors. This attack was the worst in America ever since the Pearl Harbor All over our nation saw a major impact of devastation in the face of the September 9, 2001attacks.
The events that occurred on September, 11, 2001 were among the most catastrophic events in American history. The events of the day were summarized as 19 militants associated with the terror group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out targeted attacks in the United States. Out of the four planes, two of them were flown into the World Trade Center in New York, a third one into the Pentagon in Washington and the fourth one crashing off course into a field. The attacks resulted in the deaths of over 3000 people and the beginning of a soon to come American counter terrorism policy and the subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Although there are a lot of conspiracy theories around the real motives and players behind the attack,
On September 11, 2001 it was early morning and I was sick so my dad had me go to work with him because my mom couldn’t watch me. Something terrible happened this day though. People were going to work to the trade center where my dad worked. My dad had arrived a little late to his meeting, we had both thought the was our biggest problem of the day.
The morning of Tuesday September 11, 2011 is one of the biggest tradgies of all time. On this specific day four airlines were hijacked by an Islamic group that goes by the name al-Qaeda. The attacks took the lives of 2,996 innocent people, injured nearly 6,000 people, and caused at least $10 billion in infracture and property damage. These attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, will forever be remebered as one of the most horrific days for so many people around this world.
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.
On September 11, 2001 four U.S. planes were hijacked by the terrorist group, al-Qaeda, and were used as weapons of mass destruction in a suicide terrorist attack which targeted four separate U.S. locations. Over 3,000 people died, more than 6,000 people were injured and there was over $10 billion dollars in damage, to property in the United States. These occurrences which took place on September 11, 2001 were among the most devastating hits to the United States in history, to date. .
“If we learn nothing from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” This quote comes from Sandy Dahl , the wife of the pilot on flight 93. When thinking about 9/11 this quote comes to mind because on that particular day, the world was reminded how short life really is. This quote also intertwines with 9/11 because it teaches us how there is no time to hate, but to move forward and help each other hand in hand. Even though I was only a year old when September 11th happened, I want to understand this horrific event that went down in history of the United States.
Randall gonzalez Per.4 DAY OF INFAMY Do you know the events of the 911 attack that took place in September 11, 2001 and the Pearl Harbor attack that took place in December 7, 1941? Do you know the difference between these two tragic attacks? These two events have both differences and similarities. A huge similarity they have is that both of these attack had a huge impact on the united states.
9/11 Reflection You never think of how your country can change in a matter of seconds. One second, it’s a perfect day, and the next second chaos. Events like this, like 9/11, can change your life forever. You can 't forget these types of events. Neither can your country.
Proportional Responses If someone does something to you, then you’ll most likely want to do it back right? Sometimes this can cause bad situations to worsen. I think a proportional response is bad, it makes things worse, causes retaliation, and it can potentially hurt our country.
The Iraq war such a powerful war, which had many positive outcomes. While researching through the sources available there were some main positive points expressed in each one. The Weapons of mass destruction (WMD) was one of the most deadliest and most secret tactics that Iraq had in store, knowing that the first move had to be made, as stated in the “Secret History of the Iraq War” the primary reason the United States went to war was the revival and rejuvenation of Iraq’s WMD programs in recent years (Bodsansky #7). They have been keeping secrets for far too long and Saddam Hussein the Iraq dictator, was in this situation for power and for supremacy and his removal for American security interests (Buchanan). As time progresses the situation gets more complicated, and the resolution gets more
Ethical Dilemma: Discovered by Unarmed Combatants During Operation Red Wing, a reconnaissance mission partaken by a group of U.S. Navy Seal Team 10, Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy and his team were spotted by three civilians. LT Murphy was immediately asked the most discomforting question of a young Leader’s career, “what do we do?” Considering the question in accordance with similar events and laws concerning the Law of Warfare, I often ask myself what I would do if I was behind enemy lines and my positioned was uncovered by unarmed civilians. I would allow the civilians to go free and immediately attempt to return to my operational outpost because killing innocent people is against the law, unethical, and counterproductive to the overall goal within the Global War on Terrorism.
On the morning of 9//11 arguably one of the worst day in American history, 19 members of Al Quiada had hijacked 4 U.S airplanes and aimed to use them to harm the american people. This attack was well planned and executed but, it was very much preventable. If the right intelligence and communication were made between agencies about these men, the terrorist act could have been prevented or minimized. Some of the terrorist were even selected by CAPPS, CAPPS was created to Identify passenger that should be subjected to special security measures, the only security measure that is take for people that are selected by CAPPS are their bags are helds off until the person is on the plane.(911COM)This was not the only terrorist to be selected by CAPPS that day, 10 others were selected and nothing was done(911COM). The other security measures or checkpoints that
9/11 will never be forgotten, it happened almost over 15 years ago and if you ask anyone that was there our watching it live they will remember what they were doing during it. My opinion about Congress suing Saudi Arabia is that America should be allowed to Sue them because it will give the families of the falling closure they are missing. Tons of families today still are very sad for the family members that they have lost and if they could go to Saudi Arabia they would go and bomb something of theirs that has lots of people to make everyone feel the pain they have to feel every day of their life.(http://kut.org/post/why-families-911-victims-want-sue-saudi-arabia) During the 15th anniversary of 9/11 the House was under pressure to follow suit. Many members of the House are looking for the person who paid the hijackers it’s going to be a tough task because it happened over 15 years ago a lot of people have come and gone in that time. Here are a quote from one of the family members "I want somebody to be tried and convicted and executed," Mathers says.
