Another example of why showing wartime violence is bad would have to be videos ISIS takes of themselves killing other people. To many it doesn't matter who they killed, just that they killed someone and it was caught on camera. Those videos make it to the news channels and the news channels get it to the whole world which then erupts a panic in the world. People begin freaking out on who the person being killed is or who he was. Wartime violence can never be a good thing because it causes panic and more lives lost in some
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.
Not only are there deaths from these attacks but also a large numbers of life threatening injuries that range from 1,228 - 1,362. according to a study conducted by Stanford and NYU. Some witnesses even accused the CIA of double striking, which is shooting at a target after the initial impact, which would kill the responders of of the first strike (CNN Wire Staff). The Stanford/NYU study also states that these attacks cause harm, “...beyond death and physical injury.” Also, they published many cases of psychological trauma. Hajii Gulab Jan Dawar, a pharmacist in a bazaar in Pakistan, says, “Sales of sleeping tablets, antidepressants and medicine to treat anxiety have soared (Walsh).” This comes to show how the constant fear of drones circling above a village, not knowing when or where it will strike, is extreme hardship for many of the civilians in the
(TS) Staples uses the nonfiction topic of American Involvement in Afghanistan to describe character change in both Najmah and Nusrat. (MIP-1) Americans in Afghanistan have bombed villages to push the Taliban away, but this affects many, including Najmah and her family. (SIP-A) A bombing in Kunduz threatens Najmah and her families lives. (STEWE-1) The bomb falls from the sky to Najmah’s homeland ruining everything though she doesn’t know it yet, “And then I hear a strange whistling sound that seems to grow louder, and the ground heaves and a loud thump echoes from somewhere below” (Staples 65). In this quote, Najmah experiences a bombing in her small village of Kunduz though she doesn’t think of it as something terrible.
He was strict with his leadership in fact, he would have his own followers beaten if they didn’t listen to his sermons. Then the worst happened when Jones wanted his followers to commit a “revolutionary act” of suicide by drinking Flavor Aid laced with cyanide so they could show they’re no longer controlled by the U.S. government, including the murders of the a California Congressman and journalists who went to Jonestown investigating reports of abuse, only a few of Jones’s followers survived the massacre by running away into the jungle. The purpose the author wants us to know what happened on
They have become a part of the world and become an involuntary fragment. The use of WMDs over the decade has even shifted from security to purely destruction. Most terrorist groups use WMDs as they possess political goals and have traditional, ethnic, nationalist, or ideological associations which make it necessary for them to use such weapons solely for the sake of destruction. These terrorist groups want to gain politically from their attacks and create terror in the minds of the people which may even not require the use of WMDs in certain cases like the WTC attack. These attacks just aggravate with the use of WMDs.
Nearly two decades later, the impact of the devastating September 11 attacks still lingers. All Americans, no matter what religion or color, endured the hardships following the event.. The attacks severely hindered moral in the United States, causing people to commit ignorant acts. With the discovery of the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks, there came a surge of Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hate crimes. The aftermath of the September 11th attacks has left a negative impact on the Muslim community, by leading into the rise of the demonization of Muslims, Islamophobia, and even more terrorism.
Everyone has a Story Can one imagine a world where people undergo such insanity, that they willingly go on suicide plane missions? Neither could the United States before September 11, 2001. The 9/11 terrorists attacks, lead by an Islamic group al-Qaeda, devastated the country. This group so heavily believed in their religion, that they wanted to create an independent Muslim State. The tragic event of 9/11 impacted everyone in the United States, whether or not they were present at the terrorists site of attack.
In the hunt for terrorists they have often beat and tortured innocent people if they or other villagers have suspected they are reporting to Boko Haram. Amnesty amongst others have reported on these war crimes , and just like drone strikes and increased air strikes killing civilians is recruiting jihadists in the Middle East, government “overreaction” (in the sense that they go out to hunt anyone without either a fair trial or even double checking) is recruiting Boko Haram fighters. The governments behavior has definitively both caused suffering directly through their violence and indirectly through the recruitment of more
Vicious Violence You kept a straight face as you watched the news. There was another news report about a police officer that opened fire on an unarmed African American, resulting in a fatality.
