September 11th, 2001, a date marked by history. A day where thousands of Americans would wake up to their family, their friends, and the world one last time. Over 3,000 lives taken away because of the actions of a few terrorists who wanted nothing more than to watch America fall to the ground. Suicide Bombers cause global terror, and their motives and strategies are all part of a complex system of sacrifice and glory. Justifying the actions of these terrible people is almost impossible, but learning the origin of suicide bombers, examining their tactics, and discussing their motives will provide a better look inside the mind of a bomber and possibly give an explanation as to why terrorist attacks occur.
Drones are meant to be used to help out, but they can also cause even more problems, like the increase in terrorism. Like ProCons.org explains, terrorism has increased because drones kill people’s loved ones, which causes them to want revenge from their loved one’s parting. Not only can they kill terrorists and adversaries, but they can also kill innocent people that are not involved in the situation. “Classified documents leaked in Oct. 2015 showed that in one five-month period of drone strikes in Afghanistan, as many as 90 percent of those killed were not the intended targets…” (Drones). From all the drone attacks, people are traumatized because they don’t know when the next attack will be.
First impressions, positive or negative, can influence long term relations. However, for many interviewed in this report, those opinions where "negative" (Driscoll 75). The bombings held great significance during this time period because it was the first time that American society was introduced to foreign terrorist operatives and their malicious acts of horror. Up until this incident, the largest terrorist attack suffered on U.S. soil was the Oklahoma City bombings carried out by homegrown terrorist Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City Bombing 20 Years Later). Now that the American public had witnessed an attack directed specifically at the U.S. government on foreign territory, attention was brought to the encroaching presence of America on the world stage, reminiscent of the USSR in Eastern Europe.
So, without the psychotherapists for example, twisting life happenings into traumatic events and diagnosing the patient with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) the person might not get over their “haunting” experience. Zur also analyzes occurrences surrounding the September 11th attack in NYC. Firstly, he explains that the “United States was viewed by many therapists as a country of victims where nightmares, fears and PTSD diagnoses were as common as the water we drink” (par. 4) and contrary to terrorist attacks, many places all over the world experience worse traumas than what Americans faced, such as famine and natural disasters. Secondly, he states that so called U.S. victims merely
On September 11th, 2001, tragedy struck America. A terrorist attack was carried out resulting in 2,753 Americans killed. America became locked in a war, and it needed more security on its own soil. So, congress passed a law known as the Patriot Act. This allowed the N.S.A (national security agency) to gain information of individual citizens or groups of individuals by using library records, phone calls and other surveillance.
Srebrenica Genocide was one of the most hurtful and bloody highlights of Bosnian War. Srebrenica was a safe area which UN was responsible for protection against any kind of enemy attack. However, United Nations has failed to do what they were supposed to do in July, 1995. Ratko Mladić attacked Srebrenica with Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) and killed more than 8.000 people in Srebrenica Genocide. It was an attempt to achieve their ethnic cleansing campaign which has began in 1992.
The measles controversy started in 1998 after a fraudulent research paper in the medical journal was published. The paper contained studies stating colitis and autism is linked to the measles vaccine. After the initial publishing the amount of people getting the vaccine dropped from 92% in 1996 to 84% in 2002 (in the Uk). Within the first 5 months of 2006 there was reportedly 449 cases of measles, compared to 1998 where there was only 56 within the whole year. The measles is one of the leading causes of death among young children even though there is a safe and cost-effective vaccine available people are still believing these allegations are far more severe that the consequences of the measles.
Seventeen students killed in gunfire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have been a controversial topic in recent days (Lopez, 2018). It is a great shame to read or hear about a kind of gun violence every day while living in a country where human rights are at the forefront of the world like the United States. There has been a lot of debate about whether the gun laws are strict enough and what people could do to reduce gun violence significantly. The fact that many Americans are badly affected by gun violence, so letting everyone live a safe life when the gun is in use should always be on the top Although gun violence in the United States has become a social trend worth noting because of the impact on lives and morale that directly affects
Besides, there was not necessary of the constitutional amendment because the right to bear arms had missing its own usefulness. It is because the violent crime and a large proportion of this violent is gun-related. United States has one of the highest rates. The gun violence had incorporate the biggest volume of violence in the United States according to the U.S Department of Justice. For example, in 1995, about 60.3% of homicides involved handguns, and 68 % involved guns; in 1996, about 34500 people unfortunately passed away from gunfire in United States, and of these deaths, approximately 45% resulted from homicides.
Changes in society and technology have had an impact on the armed conflict also. The changes of society have made warfare’s more humane. For example, during Wold War II Allied bombers killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in Dresden and Tokyo as a matter of tactics, despite the fact that NATO airstrike in Afghanistan 2010, where nine civilians were killed, made the news as a tragedy and leading the top NATO commander in the country to apologize to Afghan President Hamid Karzai (Goldstein, pp. 3). Furthermore, when today 's civilians do end up in harm 's way, more people are looking out for them.
