Many countries were scared after the 9/11 attack and started to stricken their security. The attacks resulted in the death of 2,996 people, including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims. The victims included 246 on the four planes from which there were no survivors, 2606 in New York City in the towers, and 125 at the Pentagon. Nearly all of the victims were civilians, and 55 military personnel were among those killed at the Pentagon. More than 90% of the workers and visitors who died in the towers had been at or above the point where the plane was hit.
Actually, I believe they did, I personally believe that the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and the crashing of Flight 93 does not accurately add up to it’s ashes. On September 11, 2001 the media/government reported that terrorists hi-jacked two U.S. commercial airplanes that struck the World Trade Center. Although how could the terrorist successively pass through security and board a plane with weapons, especially after the D.B. Cooper incident? How could such a hateful crime be planned and executed so flawlessly without any suspicion of an attack?
This was not the first time they had tried to attack the world trade centre. In 1993 February 26th a truck bomb exploded in a parking garage below the world trade centre. Six people were killed and more than 1000 people where injured. A Pakistani was eventually captured and convicted for the bombing as were several Egyptians. The FBI believe that these terrorists plan was too explode one of the towers and make it lean and fall onto the other tower to destroy them both to try and kill and total of 250,000 civilian deaths.
9/11 2001 affected Americans because it was is the most tragic day in American history. Members of Al Qaudea, hijacked American Air Line’s airplanes, and crashed them into many buildings such as the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and were possibly going toward the White House. September 11 showed America that we’re not invincible and we need to expect the unexpected, to prepare for the future, and to be ready for anything. Also, fire fighters lost their lives do to the terrorist attack by saving others. Finally, it helped Americans come together and realize that every person in America was affected by the attack.
The buildings went up in flames as people attempted to flee from the ash, steel, glass, and bodies falling from above. Both buildings, which took a total of eight years to construct, collapsed in less than 90 minutes. That same morning, at 9:37, a third plane crashed into the Pentagon, just outside of Washington. Then, at 10:03, the fourth and final plane crashed into a field in southern Pennsylvania. (National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States) The hijackers on this plane intended to slam into The White House, but heroic passengers managed
Without a warning hundreds of thousands of Hiroshima residents were instantly killed by an atomic bomb the size of a small home, devouring the entire city. Being the first nuclear weapon in history, President Truman claimed the results were not intended to be so powerful and destructive as they proved to be. Truman believed that by dropping the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the war would end. Although it did just that, there were many other peaceful ways of resolving this war. Both countries wanted the
The Jets caused large fires and damage to the lower levels, which theorists claim is impossible, but the jet fuel went down the elevator shaft causing an explosion (Dunbar38). The kerosene from the airplanes jet fuel couldn’t cause enough heat in the fire to melt the building, steel melts at 1,510 degrees Celsius and kerosene can only burn at 1,100 to 1,200 degrees Celsius, implying that there were bombs planted in the towers, but the heat was just hot enough to loosen the steel (Dunbar37). When the two buildings collapsed, they collapsed at a higher rate than usual and there wasn’t a delay in the towers falling (Mondics). As the building dropped it was very smooth, symmetrical, and straight down. Most buildings with a huge gaping whole would have leaned and fell over (“Blaskiewicz”).
9/11 affected the health, financial markets and economy of the citizens of the United States. 9/11 took place on September 11, 2001. Three airplanes were hijacked by terrorist and used as weapons. Two of the planes hit the World Trade Center in New York City and 2,752 people died (September 11 Attacks). The other plane crashed into the Pentagon and killed 189 people.
September 11, 2001, describes a series of attacks towards the United States in New York City and Washington, D.C. Hijackers intentionally crashed two planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centers in New York City. Both of the towers collapsed within two hours of the crashes, killing nearly 3,000 people. Hijackers also crashed a plane into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and the last plane into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The fourth planes target was intended to hit Washington, D.C. but passengers of the planes attempted to take control before it could reach D.C. There are many effects that changed from the terrorist attack on September 11th security, charity, post-traumatic stress and military.
Holocaust: a great or complete devastation or destruction. Alas, Babylon, written by Pat Frank, is a frightening pessimistic story because the dramatic effects of a nuclear war almost wipes out the population, causes more criminal activity, and a rampage of diseases to spread across the country. The life of the River Road Family took a fatalistic turn after a massive bombing by the Soviet Union kills millions of people, including their friends and family. “This was the end. Civilization was crushed” (page 103).
