The IRA split into two factions in 1969, one calling for the same objective but without terrorism, using politics as their weapon. The other faction known as the “provisional” IRA instead began escalating terrorist attacks; some believe this is the initial creation of the IRA which exists today. Irish Republican Army 3 IRA/Al-Qaeda The IRA shares similarities with other terrorist organizations like the radical Muslim terrorist organization Al-Qaeda. Where Al-Qaeda’s mission is essentially to rid the world of those who are not of the same beliefs, certain factions of the IRA would stop at nothing to rid the world of those who would hinder their objective. Al-Qaeda would eventually use tactics used by the IRA decades before.
Introduction The events of September 11th 2001 have cause a major alteration in the world. After 9/11 many countries throughout the world have increased security in airports and country borders, and increased security in main areas of major cities. The biggest consequence of 9/11 however was the USA’s war on terror. The war on terror was started with the objective of recognizing, finding and destroying terrorists, denying sponsorships to terrorist organizations and defending people all over the world from future terrorist attacks. However, the USA’s war on terror has had a negative effect on many countries in the world as well as their own, and their citizens by creating animosity in the international community, causing a downturn in their own economy and their major allies, and ruining their international reputation.
It means that we leave Al Qaeda without their original leader and it makes them weaker. We also captured and killed the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks and other previous events. The United States successfully executed its retribution on Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden. Still, it doesn’t mean that this is
George bush, America's 43rd president was first inaugurated on the 20th of January 2001, his first term would see him though the biggest attack on american soil ever, on the 11 of september 2001, headed by al qaeda, a terrorist group with a leader known as bin laden. Bin laden, a exiled saudi with a radial belief of islam, he had development a network known as al Qaeda arabic for “the base”, Bin laden even before 9/11 was a top priority for the the us government, the top government officials were all worried about him, they were united in their belief that al Qaeda was about to do something big, as the government would often intercept communication or chatter as it is called, such as “zero hour is tomorrow” or “Something Spectacular is
The Taliban countered demanding proof linking them to the attacks. On October 7, 2001, the United States began an aerial bombing campaign against the Taliban, with the goal of defeating al-Qaeda. The U.S. government claimed the invasion was to find bin Laden as well as other high-ranking members of al-Qaeda. They vowed to remove the Taliban from power.

GLOBAL INJUSTICE: TERRORISM Terrorism is the use of violence and or intimidation by a person or a group of people to achieve a political goal. That is one of the many unofficial definitions of terrorism some other definitions now include acts of unlawful violence and war. Studies have found that there are over one hundred different definitions of terrorism but people today use the term terrorist to describe islamism or jihadism and ignoring the non-islamic organizations or individuals. Terrorism has been used by many political organizations, nationalistic groups, religious groups, revolutionaries, and ruling governments. one consistent characteristic is the use of violence on non-combatants to gain publicity for a group,cause, or individual.
The Issue Since September 11th 2001 the United States have been at war with terrorists who have brought the fight to America’s homeland. This is not the first time wars have been fought within the American borders, but recent events in history have kept the majority of fighting off of American soil. “The militarization of domestic policing in the United States coincided with the onset of two ongoing "wars": the "war on drugs," which began in earnest in the 1980s, and the "war on terror," which assumed much greater dimensions in the early 2000s. Like any other war, these conflicts utilize military personnel, equipment, and tactics to combat and eradicate real and perceived enemies” (Hall & Coyne, 2013). On 9/11 terrorist where able to murder over 3,000 people many who were civilians.
The question to examine here is are they really terrorists? Or are they simply the most powerful partisanship in the world today? “...The West presents a threat to Islam; ... loyalty to religion and loyalty to democratic institutions and values are incompatible; and that violence is the only proper response” (mi5.gov.uk). This is the belief system that is instilled in members of Al Qaeda which has stemmed from the global message by such ﬁgures as Osama Bin Laden. Amongst the teachings of Osama Bin Laden, former Al Qaeda leader, towards his followers is that the removal of Western inﬂuence in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Palestinian Territories is crucial for the survival of Islamic faith, and that the destruction of these “inﬁdels” is the only means of maintaining the strength and existence of Islam.
On September 11, 2001, The United States of America and the whole world witnessed the most extreme terrorist incident ever committed on U.S. soil. It was perpetrated by Muslim extremists using commercial airliners as projectiles of destruction. The attacks on September 11, 2001 left nearly three thousand people dead. Following the attacks there was much speculation as to why these attacks were not prevented from happening. In the months following the attacks, President Bush assigned Attorney General Ashcroft the task of producing legislation to assist the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement community to prevent such of an atrocity from occurring again.
