84). In other words, Israel plotted a terrorist attack against us, its ally. Israel sent unmarked fighters to destroy the USS Liberty and then destroyed it completely using torpedo boats (How Israeli Terr. 84). To cover up their treacherous actions, they riddled the remaining life boats with bullets so that news of their treachery would not reach their American “friends”.
Japanese pilots would crash their planes into US ships. The biggest strategy and best technological advancement was the atomic bomb. This bomb ended the war with its powerful explosion and radiation rays, WWI did not have this advantage. Without the differences between the wars, America could not have improved their weapons and
The Germans could’ve bombed the radars and won the war because Britain wouldn’t have know where the bomber planes were located. If this did happen, Adolf Hitler would’ve gone through with attacking Russia and possibly gaining the country. This would lead to him ruling over most of the world. Although he did make many errors along the way, it led him to fail the first attack on Britain. This changed the whole outcome of the war; failing to overcome the RAF meant that he didn’t have any control over Britain and he couldn’t
Pearl Harbor Lasting Effects The Pearl Harbor attack severely crippled U.S. naval and air strength in the Pacific. However, the losses could have been much greater. If the Japanese had continued their assault on Pearl harbor it could have given them an even greater victory. However they did not destroy most of the docks, repair shops, warehouses, and ammunitions. One of the Japanese main objectives was to destroy the three American aircraft carriers stationed in the Pacific, but these were not present.
September 11th, 2001 In my perspective, what happened on September 11th, 2001, was an act of terrorism on the United States. It was a decade ago that 19 terrorists took control of four planes, flew two into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, hit the Pentagon with a third, and crashed the fourth in a field in Pennsylvania after passengers resisted and made it impossible for the terrorists to complete their mission. The government also thought that 9/11 was an act of terrorism put on by the Muslims. While conspiracy theorists have a different perspective because they believe that there was more to this attack, it was plotted out and people from America were in on it. There have been many different perspectives on what really happened on this day.
She would also need support from the emperor as her husband was now dead and could not care for her. Furthermore, although the flying machine would have a chance of being spotted it would have been to far away to be noticeable. To the other empires it would have been assumed that the flying machines were just birds in the distance. The machines could have been flown away from the boarder so that it could be kept a secret. If the enemy did manage to create a flying machine then the empire had one to defend itself against them.
The Kamikaze were suicide attacks by military aviators from the Empire of Japan against Allied naval vessels in the closing stages of the Pacific campaign of World War II, designed to destroy as many warships as possible. Kamikaze pilots would attempt to crash their aircraft into enemy ships—planes often laden with explosives, bombs, torpedoes and full fuel tanks. The aircraft's normal functions (to deliver torpedoes or bombs or shoot down other aircraft) were put aside, and the planes were converted to what were essentially manned missiles in an attempt to reap the benefits of greatly increased accuracy and payload over that of normal bombs. The goal of crippling as many Allied ships as possible, particularly aircraft carriers, was considered critical enough to warrant the combined sacrifice of pilots and aircraft. These attacks, which began in October 1944, followed several
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. Among his fellow terrorists, he is a revered hero, but all over the world, he is seen as a villain, a power-hungry monster greedy for power and attention. Because of bin Laden’s treacherous deeds, the United States has lost over 100 billion dollars in revenue, billions more by invading
Others are skeptical or outright don’t believe America would uphold the Order and finally it is viewed by some as an attempt to regain some integrity after the Watergate scandal and failed assassination attempts of previous administrations. President Ronald Reagan was the last president to officially address the ban on assassinations. However, he set a precedent for interpretations of the ban that did allow individuals to be targeted without deeming it “assassination”. In 1986 the Libyan President Muammar Quaddafi bombed a Berlin club that was often frequented by American troops. In response to this Reagan ordered an air attack on the Palace of Quaddafi justifying it as
September 11th, 2001. The day that changed America forever, the day that has been commonly referred to as the modern-day Pearl Harbor. The day Americans realized just how vulnerable they really are. On that fateful day according to the official story, America was attacked by Islamic extremists masterminded by the terrorist organization of AL-Qaida led by the most wanted man in the world, Osama Bin laden. September 11th has since then dramatically changed much of our foreign policy, has allowed for the war on terror in 2 countries of the middle east, and has been used to allow for additional security measures to be taken to ensure the national security of the country (The Patriot Act), and also the creation of the Bush Doctrine, but all
