Many people, especially Americans, believe that Germany killed the passengers on the Lusitania for no apparent reason. Now, the government of America tries to call the incident a horrible mistake. Germany did not, however, completely act in error. Surprisingly, the Lusitania had many dark secrets. Germany sunk the Lusitania because
People were so upset because they were afraid that sending troops to Iraq would take the focus off of Afghanistan and the mission to find Bin Laden. Seeing the way that people just turn against and decide that they want to kill innocent people just does not make since. Looking at this serious situation, many people see that the September 11th attacks badly because it was more of a modern day situation. Also it was in the United States, which we live in. The attack was a very tragic and hurting time in American history.
The third plane hit the western side of the Pentagon, and the fourth plane was targeted at the U.S. capitol, but it crashed into a nearby field. One reason for the attack was because of the U.S. foreign policy, Osama didn’t like how the U.S. support Israel. He thought that the U.S. foreign policy oppressed and killed Muslims. After the terrorist attack on September 11, many actions were made after this incident, like the Department of Homeland Security, the Patriot Act, and the Transportation Security Administration.

We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “- George Bush)[pic] ---*--- September 11, 2001 has been the darkest day in the life of every American. On that day, the radical Muslim group Al Qaeda led a series of suicide attacks that demolished American Trade Center, damaged Pentagon, destroyed the hijacked planes, and killed thousands of innocent Americans in the process. Such an unprecedented attack of this magnitude on the unprepared nation shook the confidence of the people, impaired their sense of security and changed their view of the world around them.
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.
People would have seen the explosion as the loss of a building, and not as the graphic act of terror that it is. Simply bombing the building at night would not have gotten as much recognition at all. The death toll is what brings the powerful and urgent meaning to what the Patriots stood for and there was no other way to convey it. This impact was supposed to alter the reality of the public and motivate them to take up arms and join the cause that the insurgents were preaching. McVeigh and his terrorist organization wanted to retaliate against the federal government for the massacre at Waco and they felt as if the deaths of hundreds of innocent people were a realistic way to do that.
Nowadays when one sees a Muslim or someone who looks like a Muslim, that person is automatically deemed as either being dangerous or a terrorist. This fact comes to tell how far the world has come to. The 9/11 attacks changed the people’s perspective upon Muslims and now the stereotype is that all Muslims are bad and that they are all terrorists looking to kill innocent Americans. The next reason as to why the attacks were a success was due to the support that al-Qaeda got from different organizations and countries. They got financial support from countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Syria.
People were watching this horrific act being shown on every news channel for weeks after the attacks occurred. At the same time Americans were being told that terrorist had hi-jacked each plane and took control of the planes in order for these terrible acts to have taken place. The media was used as a deception to all Americans in order for them to believe that there were actual terrorists who attacked America for an unseen reason. To this day no one has shown a reliable reason for the attacks on
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. Many of us still don’t feel safe. What is the root of such hatred? Our lives changed instantaneously the deaths of adults who were killed in the attacks or died in rescue operations
9/11 has had a huge impact on Americans directly. There were many men, women, and children who died. The amount of death has made many Americans sullen and it has affected the way that we view terrorism. The fact that we were hit in the center of our trade, where no one thought we were vulnerable, still unnerves Americans today. We were attacked when we least expected it, and what's more, the attack, to some, was successful.
