A cargo ship disguised as a cruise ship sunk because the Germans torpedoed it. It carried weapons and the passengers had access to one or more warnings by the Germans concerning sea travel around Great Britain. The British wanted America to join the war to support the Allies. Though this event did not immediately trigger the reaction the British wanted, the Lusitania event, in combination with others, caused the Americans to join the war, allowing the Allies to win. They needed the Americans, and they used an ingenious tactic to cause the Americans to join the war: the death of its own civilians.
Finally, it helped Americans come together and realize that every person in America was affected by the attack. To begin with, the leader of Al Qaudea, Osama Bin Laden, sent terrorists to bomb the Twin Towers to try and tear our nation apart, but all he did was make us closer and even more powerful. He sent his people to take flying lessons in Florida in order to fly the plane into the towers and the Pentagon. Their plan was to bomb the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and White House, but they failed to complete their mission. Instead they only succeeded in the Twin Tower destruction, because the Pentagon was still standing, and the last plane crashed in a field in Pensylvannia.
North Vietnamese were against the Americans during the war and had multiple reasons in hating Americans. Some reasons they hated Americans were because the North Vietnamese “deaths were very many” (Adams) and because of the “the poisons Americans dropped” (Adams) onto their land. By having so many deaths, the families of those people were sad and the North Vietnamese troops lessened. The poisons
Over 6,000 lives, most of them American, have been lost because of his actions. Many Muslims have now been given a stereo type of being “violent terrorists,” just because of the alacrities of a handful of extremists. Due to bin Laden’s interfering with the United States, they abortively invaded Afghanistan, punching a dent in President Bush’s presidency, and throwing the economy into turmoil. Any hope of returning to the former lifestyle that Americans had once enjoyed has been long dissipated. Al-Qaeda, the terrorist group that he founded in the early 1980’s, has been encouraging other minor terrorists to take action, making the world an over-all more dangerous place to live.
The fourth plane crashed into an open field in western Pennsylvania. Some people on that plane started to call friends and family to tell them what was happening. It was believed that the fourth plane was also intended to crash in to the pentagon aswell. The attacks between the towers and the pentagon cost more than 3000 deaths. President Bush announced the U.S intention to fight its own war again against terrorism worldwide.
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?
The first one is that the brave women and men refused to let their airplane or their deaths be used to hurt America they died as heroes as they retook the airplane crashing it into a field near Shanks Ville Pennsylvania instead of allowing the hijackers to crash the airplane to its intended target believed to be nearby Washington D.C. The second story is that flight 93 was shot down by F-16 near Somerset Pennsylvania. THIS IS THE INFORMATION USED BY THE HIJACKERS AND NAMES. HI JACKERS FROM FLIGHT 11 ARE 1. Satam Am.a.
Secretaries, businessmen, mothers and fathers. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by despicable acts of terror. Most Americans remember where they were when the series of malicious events occurring, and the feeling of shock they had when it was first heard on the news. On that day most citizens were scared for their lives and the lives of loved ones involved in the attack. It wasn’t until three or four years later people started to ask questions about who was behind the events.
The dreaded day we all know as “9/11” was heart-rending and painful for many Americans all because of an inhumane and merciless act by a gang of jealous and loathing group of terrorists known as “Al-Queda”. On this day, 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked 4 planes and intentionally flew two of them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. This act killed everyone on board, in the buildings and took down both towers. September 9, 2010, the proposed construction of building a “ground zero mosque” at park 51 has stirred controversy throughout the United States. Many Americans oppose the construction of the mosque next to ground zero because they see this as the terrorists gaining victory over the U.S. and building a mosque
United States: Ground Zero Terrorism is a criminal act that influences an audience beyond the immediate victim. The terrorists plan their attack to obtain great publicity and choosing targets that symbolize what they oppose. We will always remember September 11, 2001. Most of us can remember our locations on this horrific Tuesday morning as we witnessed the second plane hit the South Tower. We felt vulnerable and grieved as we tried to piece the puzzle of this horrendous catastrophe we wondered who was to blame for this attack.
