I enjoy reading your post. I agree with you Osama Bin Laden was educated, dedicated to his cause and he did not show no remorse for the deaths of 2,996 people including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims. I personally feel that he should have been brought back to America to be charge for the deaths of all this innocent people and victims. He did put this amazing
In the essay "We're Safer Post 9/11" written by Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, and James Clapper, a very intelligent, well descriptive work is published based on the days after the tragic 9/11 event. We all know that 9/11 was a very sad day and it destroyed the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pa. The writers gave great examples as to how the United States has increased the safety of our country. We have took down most of the people and groups affiliated with the 9/11 attack and that is a great achievement accomplished. The attempt of proving how we have increased our safety was well expressed. Yet, there are still terrorist groups plotting to take us down that we are not aware of. Holder, Napolitano and Clapper stated “We have expanded the number or Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs) around the country from 35 to 104-” (706) as an example of logos. Ethos is shown through the knowledge the writers have on the safety precautions made throughout the years. The positive take they have on the safety increase and strong framework throughout the country is shown through pathos. The United States is a
Thanks to history we see war is not limited to killing. Instead, war is a multi-packed good or evil struggle each with its own purposeful initiation and ending. Conquering poverty, illiteracy, HIV-AIDS, wasting profitable time, crimes, and armed conflict between nations or factions could exemplify what war envelops. The language of war, as states by Khalid Sheik Mohammad is, however, generalize or viewed as killing. The nature of the war addressed in Mohammad 's one lengthy article is also taken as a specific social conflict based on religious confrontation. The hot issues that include liberalism versus terrorism and economic issue are left behind in Mohammad 's discussion. Mohammad 's participation in the 11 September 2001 massacre in New York clearly indicates his anti-position against the United State 's stand. Mohammad is correct when he said that neither roses nor kisses reach Saddam from his opponents. What I understand from “The language of war is killing” is Mohammad 's active position as a living terrorists symbol not only in Iraq but also in the Arab world.
For thirteen years, Osama Bin Laden has orchestrated many attacks on multiple nations killing many innocent lives. Over that thirteen year span, his team, Al-Qaeda, killed thousands of people. Osama Bin Laden changed our society by orchestrating several attacks, killing many innocent lives.
How can society advance peace when one tyrant wants to use pure evil as persuasion? In the play Macbeth (written by Shakespeare) and the acts of Osama Bin Laden, one statement that is heard from everyone is that “one must fall, for others to progress”. Macbeth and Osama Bin Laden both rose to power through intimidation and pure violence. Both political leaders had no limits to how far they’d use violence in order to obtain a certain status or objective. In this analysis, the reader will able to see how history repeats itself through the actions that take place before/during their rise to power, the influence they had on other people, and most of all, how they’re downfall saved society. Many people say that a person’s past is what defines their
Osama bin Laden, leader of the terrorist group Al Queda, was killed on May 2, 2011. After being the target of a decade long international hunt, Bin Laden had been tracked to a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. (History para.1)United States Navy Seals invaded the compound and shots were fired, killing Osama bin Laden. He was then flown to a disclosed area in the Arabian Sea and buried.(CNN para.4) The killing of Osama bin Laden was justifiable due to the fact that he was the mastermind behind many attacks, including September 11, and has killed countless innocent civilians in different countries.
Osama Bin Laden, part of the FBI’s top ten most wanted fugitives, was a suspect of several terrorist attacks against Americans (Murdico 7). Bin Laden was the financier and leader of Al Qaeda, an enormous worldwide terrorist organization which killed the lives of thousands of innocent civilians(4). However, the road to his future actions started when he was just a kid. In 1967, when Bin Laden was only ten years old, he inherited 250 million dollars after his father, Mohammed Bin Laden had died in a car crash(11). Later on, Bin Laden would use this money to help fund his terrorism campaign against the United States. Al Qaeda had many goals which they desired to achieve which included getting Americans and Western influence out of Muslim countries(38).
In the fall of 2010,Osama Bin Laden was captured and killed by American soldiers.It was quickly assumed that the Pakistani goverment helped with this mission but the Americans made it clear that they completed this task alone and with their intelliengence and stratgic ways were able to follow one of his couriers,who wife was from Swat.The killing of Osama Bin Laden was a major event for American history. Finally the man who murdered thousands of Americans in 9/11 was punished. After Bin Laden’s death, Pakistan intelligence was questioned. How was Osama able to hide in Pakistan for so long without being caught? The Pakistan spend billions of dollars on it’s military and yet couldn't protect its borders from American helicopters. The effect that
ISIS is a clan formed in Iraq and they despise our country and the muslims located in it. ISIS is also responsible for a lot of bombings we hear about today. ISIS was responsible for a major terrorist attack on Paris a few months ago. Paris was bombed in a hotel and many people killed or severely injured during the terrorist attacks performed by ISIS.
Very few individuals in the world have had the same impact as Osama Bin Laden. This man has changed the face of global security and immigration policies. And just like any popular person, he too, has many myths and misconceptions surrounding him. As dramatic as Osama Bin Laden’s death was, his life has been equally mysterious. Many people say he was already dying due to a kidney disease, while many say that he was a raunchy teenager in Beirut before he became a fanatic. Some even claim that he was an Arsenal fan. All these are myths and there were bound to be more misconceptions about this person. In this article, we will debunk five of them.
No Easy Day is an autobiography by Mark Owen. Owen was a navy SEAL that served on SEAL Team Six, otherwise known as DEVGRU, during the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden. Following the mission, Owen felt the need to write his book to put to rest the rumors and inaccurate accounts of what occurred that night in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
The terror group ISIS has for the last years made big problems for the western countries. Their beliefs and “way of life” is reversed from the western mainstream, and this has resulted in a dangerously hot tension between the east and the west. What the best solution is to this problem we don’t know, but there are a lot of different opinions on how we should approach this problem. From the packet we received I agree with article nr. two of Andrew J. Bacevich.
Successful international counter-terrorism efforts against terrorist organization like al-Qaeda have inflicted heavy casualties and decimated much of their senior leadership over the last decade (Sageman, 2008, p. 131). These efforts have forced many terrorist organizations to adopt a highly decentralized cellular model in order to survive. Starting in the mid 2000’s, al-Qaeda began to adopt this new concept of unorganized terrorist cells and leaderless jihad (also known as the lone wolf concept) (Spaaij, 2012, p. 26). This concept was further refined and formalized in a 1,604 page book written by Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, a high ranking al-Qaeda operative at the time, titled Call to Global Islamic Resistance which can be found in PDF format on many radical Islamists websites (Zackie, 2013, p. 1). This new strategy endorses smaller scale, less complicated attacks which are well suited for the lone wolf concept (Barnes, 2012, p. 1649).
