The threat of terrorist attacks changed American culture immensely; the devastation wakened the need for protection and a sense of security. Dramatic measures were taken in order to protect this country, so foreign relations were severely affected. Post 9/11 government saw the “link between immigration and security”, and that by changing foreign policy it would “reduce the likelihood of future attacks” (Krikorian 567).The safety measure in airports were countless from metal detectors to full body scans. “The immigration system has being penetrated by the enemy”, the officials realized which led to unfair accusation of innocents (Krikorian 568). “Overzealous officials” grill suspicious foreigners “to the point of near panic” (Khan 559).
They also thought that their massive fighting force would lower Vietnam morale and would allow them to crush the enemy. Another lesson was that to do good, sometimes you must engage in evil. During the war, the United States and McNamera came under fire for their intense bombing campaign throughout Vietnam, mainly in major North Vietnamese cities such as Hanoi. McNamera had to face the press and defend his actions. The bombings killed many civilians, not all of whom were communist and pro-North.
Basically this was created and hand made by Canadian radio amateurs, yet it was crucial in facilitating a link of communication between North and South America and European allies. Another examples of how Camp X contributed to the successful outcome of the war include the fact that it allowed President Roosevelt and Winston Churchill to relay top-secret messages to each other almost instantaneously. This expedited any decision-making or strategic planning sessions, which were important in taking the enemy by surprise. Intercepting enemy communication was also important for the Camp X agents. One of the famous German U-Boat groups was known as Donitz Wolf Pack.
Racism Post 9/11 September 11th 2001 will forever be remembered as 102 minutes that changed America. The attacks not only shook the nation with fear but altered racial stereotypes until this very day. When one reflects upon the media post 9/11, they initially spot the increases in Arab/Muslim prejudged remarks; however, with a decade past one could argue movies and television shows have managed to represent a more accurate illustration of life in the Middle East. Days following the attacks on the twin towers, the media occupied its broadcast with horrible racial stereotypes. Newspapers, homepages, and newscasts filled their content with prejudiced information which distorted many Americans point of view.
America was in a recession and gave off the impression that it was no longer the superpower that was once feared and respected. It would come to the surprise of everyone that a hockey game would be the reason that fueled Americans to become excited and proud to wave the flag again. The symbols taken from the 1980 Miracle on Ice played an important role in boosting the morale of a torn nation and gave hope to the future of American culture.

One problem that people have really with these kinds of wars is that they only focus on the bad things and what goes wrong in them. These ignorant people let the ever so negative media make their decisions on why wars like these are wrong. The media only ever has seemed to show the bad sides of everything and unfortunately the majority of the people in this country watch about five minutes of the news, only watch and see the bad sides of these wars, and continue on about the business only knowing and thinking “oh the _____ war is so dumb we aren’t accomplishing anything whatsoever!” Take another war for example the War in Iraq. We entered it to really try and establish ‘peace in the middle east’. Again sadly people flip on the television; see the reports reporters found of Iraqis begging that we get out that we have only made things worse, they see that our government spends too much money on the war, and that x amount of soldiers died that day.
Comparison microscope was first introduced to the European scientists for firearms identification and other forensic uses by Sir Sydney Smith (Thorwald ,1964,wiki,) In the late 1920s, Swedish criminalist Harry Söderman drastically improved the comparison microscope by inventing a system for rotating the bullets under the objectives. This allowed for a much faster comparison of impressions of bullets by simultaneous rotation of both the suspect and comparison bullets. (Lerner, 2005,World of Forensic Science, Encyclopedias) During the 1960s, proposals were made to computerize the process of microscopic comparisons of fired ammunition components but at that time neither the software nor the hardware existed to
In the article The Gaza Crisis, by Phyllis Bennis, she makes the claim that Israel violated international law when attacking Gaza since Israel knew that scores of the civilian inhabitants within Gaza would be injured or killed. Bennis also makes the argument that the United States was complicit towards the Israeli attacks. The author states that everyone reading this piece of writing ought to get in touch with their congressmen, their local and state governments, start petitions, and to criticize the brute force in which the Israelites have used against Gaza, illegally. The author anticipated this paper appealing to a large audience of citizens sympathetic to the Palestinians. Bennis is making an appeal to the world, and it does sound like
Fear that they would end up either an outcast, in the same position as Mary Warren or worse being accused of witchery. Though The Crucible was written in reference to McCarthyism, it is still relevant to modern situations. On September 11, 2001, four planes were over taken by Islamic extremists and three were successfully used as implements of destruction. This destruction caused the taking of thousands of innocent lives. While this was a horrible day, it can’t be an oversight that paranoia became a prevailing part of post-9/11 America.
7 December 2010 Illegal Immigration: The Silent Invasion Over the past decade or so I have noticed the growing concern about the non-citizens coming in and going out of our country. Indeed, after the horrific events that transpired on September 11, 2001 it seems to me that tracking immigrants is of paramount importance to our national security. With that in mind, I find it more and more disturbing that many Americans do not have the intestinal fortitude to call illegal immigrants what they truly are: criminals. I constantly hear the quaint euphemisms attached to illegals being bandied about on news broadcasts. I have heard it said too many times that they aren’t “illegal”…they are simply “undocumented”.
