A great terror struck our nation September 11, 2001, two aircraft’s hit the world trade centers, killing 2000 people and injuring over twice as many. A third aircraft flew into the Pentagon while a fourth crashed in a rural area in Pennsylvania. This day will forever be engrained into history as one of the worst terror attacks faced in this nation. Nearly three years later, in an attempt to figure out what happened on that tragic day, scholars came together to discuss the possible parallels between foreign and domestic terrorist. The author, Michael Kimmel, outlines the possible cause of the 2001 attacks and offers us a link between both foreign and domestic terrorism.

Contrary to what the mass media showed as the target of the attack on September eleven(the people), the terrorist organization really wanted to cripple the United States and its economy. " the immediate impact of the 9/11 attack was to reduce real GDP growth in 2001 by 0.5%3. " It is true that the American economy was not only affected by that factor; but the attacks on September eleventh 2001 did play a leading role in the hurting of the economy. Discussed further, the decline of other great empires share this characteristic-with a failing economy a civilization is most likely doomed to fail.

To begin with following both of these tragedies they brought the world closer together and gave the world a sense of security and gratefulness of our freedom. There were many similarities that conjoined these events; which were the United States fear of immigrants and dissidents, production declines and stock market decline after 9/11, improved technology to locate terrorist and terrorism activity, and lastly deportation and arrests of alien citizens. After the Red Scare many Americans had become afraid of alien citizens and some even went as far as to hurt and shun them out of our world. The same thing happened following 9/11; after the attacks many Americans had become petrified of and began to harass and put out hate crimes against South
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.
September 11, 2001 was a day that changed America forever. Four hijacked commercial airliners crashed into some of the United States ' most prized and recognizable landmarks, including the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. These attacks shocked our nation and were intended to provoke fear and a sense of vulnerability amongst Americans. Though the emotional impact of the attacks remains significant, one could argue that an equally devastating and long-lasting consequence was the sharp decline that occurred with the economy. The 9/11 terrorist attacks worsened the 2001 Recession, caused a major increase in foreign defense spending, and prompted an unprecedented initiative to
The terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 had an enormous impact all across the United States. Since this life changing event the United States has taken extreme measures to ensure the safety of all American citizens.

After 9/11 the question of terrorism was very important. Ever more terrorist camps emerged, planning to threat the world with chemical, nuclear, etc. weapons. Some governments like North Korea and Iraq were said to "sponsor terror" and shatter the world peace. Bush Jr. stated that America's troops are training other countries' armies to fight terrorism. A big amount of the USA's budget was spent on the strengthening of the army and weapons to protect its citizens and also to help other states.
Imagine running through the streets observing people weep and yell, the twin towers perish before them. Every ten seconds another horn beeps loudly to get the attention of those that are in a trance. Now, envision children alone or with family because their dad was a firefighter hastily rushing into the East tower to save those that were in the building. This event took place in New York on the date of 9/11/01, furthermore Muslim terrorists are responsible for this horrific event. From terror to hope justifies the events of 9/11 and the innocent Muslims that have to take the blame.
This is significant due to the actions that the government has taken in the name of “military intervention” so as to deter nations from building up to war or a war crisis in the Middle East.
