(Foot) The Canadians and their allies wanted to protect Ypres partly because it offered rail and road links to ports on the coast. During the battle, the German army took advantage of a favourable wind to release the cloud of chlorine gas from cylinders in front of their trenches. Soldiers watched a yellow-green cloud creep over the ground toward nearby French colonial troops. 2 days after their first attack, Germans attacked in an attempt to obliterate the Salient once and for all. A violent bombardment followed by another gas attack, but the Canadians maintained their grounds.
Each plane had a distinctive destination. These locations included The World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and an undisclosed location, which we will never know. The terrorist had a calculated plan and initiated an attack so horrible that three hundred and forty three firefighters and paramedics lost their lives. Twenty three New York City police officers and thirty seven Port Authority police officers were also killed. Could we have had less casualties if we, our nation, was better prepared?
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. 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.
The killing of the Al-Qaeda leader, which is a Radical Islamic Terrorist Group, founded in the 1980 's by Osama Bin Laden, was a huge justice in the U.S. and other countries. Bin Laden posed a global threat to the countries where Islam is not implemented, he was responsible for the September, 11th attacks back in 2001. He orchestrated it, and had it planned for months, he was planning more attacks on the U.S. after 9/11 as well. ("The World Trade Center History.") The terrorist group Al-Qaeda knew they couldn’t beat the U.S. in a straight up firefight, so they tried to destroy us through economic failure and imposing fear into American lives.
Daniel Ash and his team are following a series of clues that have led them to Everton Vermont. Just outside the city limits is an innocent looking building, though nothing could be further from the truth as this is the front gate to Dream Sky, the headquarters of Project Eden. They have been looking for the base for months and finally they may have a chance to wipe out the organization once and for all. To give themselves the best chance at success, various resistance movements around the globe have been surrounding Eden Project bases which they intend to attack simultaneously. These attacks will act a diversion that will draw attention away from the invasion at headquarters.
ISIS has had probably one of the biggest impacts on Canada ever since Justin Trudeau has started to let refugees or immigrants into Canada, some of those refugees and immigrants are part of ISIS. The first reason ISIS has made an impact is that they have been trying to kill people, but a lot of the people who tried killing people failed and have been sent to court. Some of the examples are. September 25th an ISIS member tried killing a police officer at 10:04pm after running the cop over with a silver chevy and getting out and stabbing the cop 8 times in the legs and running off into a u-haul van. Another attempted murder was at a Canadian tire in Winnipeg at 8:32am.
On April 19th, 1995 Timothy McVeigh parked a rental Ryder truck in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, and lit a short fuse to a bomb on the truck that caused a huge explosion.

On April 20th, 1995 the rear axle to the rental Ryder truck was discovered with a vehicle identification number that aided law enforcement to the location of where the rental truck was from. The truck was rented from a location in Junction City, Kansas, where employees at the rental shop were able to help authorities
William Cecil had become worried that Mary would inspire Catholic uprisings to overthrow Queen Elizabeth and place her on the throne instead. “Cecil soon realized that he needed a whole organization of spies to keep him adequately informed about possible conspiracies. He knew just the man to create and run such a network: Walsingham” (“Walsingham, Francis” 4). Walsingham would hire many spies to increase the number to fifty. “Walsingham established a spy school to give agents the professional training they needed.” This school would give these agents professional training to enact in espionage (“Walsingham, Francis” 4).
The world mourned when the Twin Towers were burned, Brussels was bombed, and when people were slain at a concert in Paris. All of these atrocities happened because of radicalization, which is taking an ordinary person and influencing their views to be more extreme and typically more violent. Radicalization is a social issue that was presented in the novel, Unwind, by Neal Shusterman. One of the main characters, Lev, was radicalized by a terrorist group, known as Clappers. Clappers lace their blood with explosives and then clap to detonate, killing as many people as possible.
In this manner, Reid had used a covert weapons through the guidance of a terrorist network, such as Al Qaeda, to plan a suicide bombing to destroy the lives of American citizens and an American commercial airliner. These are the technical aspects of Reid’s terrorist actions, which define a terrorist through covert methods of destruction with unorthodox weaponization of bombs found in his shoes. A terrorist often uses covert methods of
This factionalism ultimately resulted in the assassination of Malcolm X by a member of the NOI as a consequence of the faction-fighting which led to Malcolm’s split from the NOI. (COINTELPRO Papers pg. 103) Several years later, it was discovered that the FBI instigated the NOI infighting that led to the split, with the use of informants, rumor spreading and the exacerbation of internal disputes. In a memo dated January 22nd, 1969, the Special Agent in Charge of the Chicago branch, Marlin Johnson wrote: “Factional disputes have been developed – the most notable being Malcolm X Little.” (FBI Vault, Cointelpro: black extremists, 10 of 23, pg. 17) This statement implies that the FBI had fostered the rift within NOI with the goal of its destruction, thus leading to the assassination of Malcolm X.
Let’s look at what happen post 9/11. After it’s devastation, the Department of Homeland Security was created to assist in fighting the “war” against terrorism. The DHS implemented many “strategies” to help fight this war, including increasing airport security. American parents protested that TSA agents were groping their kids, and “(Janet) Napolitano (former DHS Secretary) defiantly retorted that if people did not want their children groped, they should yield and use the unpopular full-body machines – the machines being sold by her predecessor, (Michael) Chertoff” (Turley, 3). These full body scanners, which Chertoff had a hand in getting into the airports, were “heavily criticized (and little tested)”, and were sold by a company which was a client of Chertoff’s consulting agency (Turley, 3).
