Causes and Effects of 9/11 September 11, 2001 was a horrific day for all American citizens. Four American commercial flights were hijacked by Islamic extremist that would soon crash into some of the most important structures in America. From that day on we will remember the ones we lost and the ones who gave their lives to save others. This was the first major attack since Pearl Harbor in 1941 on American soil. Nineteen militants who were suicide bombers crashed into the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field which had a central and global effect on the world caused by global terrorism increase and the spread of the group Islamic Extremist.
After listening to and responding to the Story Corps interview about 9/11 I knew a lot more about how people who lost family members felt after and during that horrible day when the World Trade Center was attacked by terrorists, but I still had a lot of questions like how many people really died on 9/11, what was the general feeling of the people who were waiting for lost ones on 9/11, who was responsible for 9/11, what has the US done to punish the people responsible for 9/11. In this essay I will talk about these questions and the information and answers I have found to these questions. How many people really died on 9/11? I knew a thousands of people died and even more were injured, but I wanted to know how many people in total were injured or died. In my research I discovered that 2,996 people died on 9/11 with
They need it, because they want war, and they want France to stop accepting refugees .And they knew how to make france to increase amount of air strikes. The answer on the question why do they need wars needs closer look on the Islamic State and on the wars in general. One week before attacks in Paris, Russian plane crashed, investigations showed that this was a bomb. This plane was flying from egypt to St. Petersburg, most of the people on board were russians. 224 people died.
On September 11th, nineteen terrorists of Saudi Arabian decent hijacked three planes and sent them on a path to the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. According to Reza Pankhurst, author of “A Legacy of 9/11: A Decade of Denial and Destruction,” Pankhurst stated that the reason for the attack was that the American government supported underrepresented regimes, extradition, and foreign intervention in the Middle East for its own political and economical gain (738). These actions led to a growing disfavor for the American government in the Middle East. In their opinion, United States had angered far too many Middle Eastern countries, and these citizens wished to exact revenge by “dispensing” the treatment they experienced to the American populace (739). According to “9/11 Attack,” this response manifested as the attacks on World Trade Center on September 11th, where approximately three thousand and four hundred people lost their lives.
First of all, the United States was filled with new found racism after September 11th. People of Middle Eastern descent faced more adversities because the terrorists were also Middle Eastern.In America, some people commited “hate crimes, graffiti, and plain prejudice in the weeks and months following the attacks” (“Racial Profiling and the Battle Against Terrorism”). People of Middle Eastern descent also experienced racial profiling. Much of the racial profiling came from the government when the
On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, a terrible tragedy occurred, resulting in the twin towers of the World Trade Center to collapse. The towers were stormed by two Islamic planes that were participating in a suicide attack and were burned down in daylight. This attack was believed to be carried out by an Islamic terrorist group that goes by the name of al-Qaeda. During this massacre, there were over 3000 casualties and a huge number of first responders suffered irreversible health complications. Raymond Alexander and his son Robert Alexander were first responders during 9/11.
Many issues are going on that needs to be fixed by the upcoming president. That is one reason we need to make sure we become educated about social issues when elected our next president. It is hard to choose just one social issue that needs to be changed but if I have to pick on it would be terrorism. Terrorism is “the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.” (Dictionary) It is a major issue all around the world and many people are affected by it. It isn’t just people from other countries who commit them but even US citizens have done terrorists acts in America also.
If tensions do keep rising and another Cold War breaks out many Americans might not feel safe in their own homes. If you add this and terrorism together you will get a lot of americans who are upset at their national security and will want more security for themselves. This leads to more problems like airports making bag checks more stricts or require a full body search for everyone which causes many people to become angry. Another big issue with the possible return of cold war tensions with russia is nuclear weapons. NATO does a good job in
Refugees are people who leave their home country in order to seek safety. Over the past several years, terrorist acts against United States, plus the Paris attack, media is labeling terrorism as mulsim.Terrorists attacks affect all of us .we experience sorrow and anger at the loss of life. However, for Muslim there is another layer of grief which is the terrorist label. We become suspicion, we are call terrorist. After the terrorists’ attacks in Paris some states say that they will refuse to take any Muslim refugee from Syria, they will only focus on helping the Christians refugee.
Tuesday morning of September 11, 2001, United States awakened to the tragic events occurring in New York City. The nation came to a stop as hijacked planes collided into the country’s beloved Twin Towers, crumbling down within the matter of seconds. 15 years ago, the United States faced a major terrorist attack, with over 3,000 deaths and evidently bringing out the rage within the citizens. However, targets of revenge for this situation are faced by Sikh Americans, who still experience discrimination with their physical appearance in the nation today. Within the United States, the media limits the coverage Sikh Americans experience on a daily basis, and essentially undermining the discrimination that many of them still face today.
