Tragedy of 9/11 “Our enemies have made the mistake that America’s enemies always make. They saw liberty and thought they saw weakness. And now, they see defeat. (Bush,George.www.wordpress.com)” Is the words George W. Bush said that was part of his speech after America was attacked. He couldn’t even believe what was happening.
In a world that has been flooded by news, there is usually nothing that rises far above the smoldering lava of sensation—that which consumes all truth and absorbs all lies mixing them into a fiery lake or stew of bubbling nonsense. So much so, that to discover glanced over facts, to question people of importance within government or the machine itself leads to the branding of one as a “conspiracy theorist.” Truthfully, there are many people who lived life with doubt over the facts surrounding 9/11, who felt afraid to express it, probably because they feared being accused of “hating America,” of being “with the terrorists,” hence sympathizing with the people who were responsible for killing all of those who died on 9/11. You talk to people
This essay Was written by Serj two days after the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. It caused a lot of controversy, particularly because many readers seemed to miss the message. Please understand, this essay is not attempting to justify the 9/11 attacks. When it was published, many mistook Serj's intentions and consequently denounced him, but if you pay attention to this small excerpt, it is impossible to say that Serj tried to justify the 9/11 attacks: ...my belief is that the terror will multiply if concrete steps are not taken to sponsor peace in the middle east, NOW. This does not mean that we should not find the guilty party(s), Bin Laden, or whoever they may be, and not try them.
The tragic events of September 11, 2001 constitute a fundamental landmark in American history. a decisive watershed, a breaking point. Millions of people have been misled regarding the causes and consequences of 9/11. September 11 2001 opens up an era of crisis, upheaval and militarization of American society. A far-reaching overhaul of US military doctrine was launched in the wake of 9/11.
The United States was able to fight communism without having to put U.S forces in action, with support to anti-soviet rebels. In the short term, this proved successful of removing communistic powers and formation of U.S-friendly governments. However, the long term goals of were hampered, as governments that formed usually involved a militaristic regime or total anarchy. It also left many people to resent the United States and later opposed to U.S policies. Especially in Afghanistan, where the U.S cut and ran after the Soviet defeat, not willing to establish some sort of democracy in the country.
The authors comments stress how important it is for the military forces to remain in Afghanistan according to military officials but fails to expand on why the President of Karzai refuse to sign an agreement that would benefit them from their presence, a President that was placed in power for over a decade because of the United States, and he know he don’t have the extra military equipment the United States possess that he benefitted from, nor do he have the financial means to sustain the military forces he needs. For a man that could only benefit, from the information presented implies the security agreement contain information the President don’t feel is beneficial for his country. The basic understanding that can be deduced from the article is the Afghan soldiers learned a lot from the military presence of the United States and they are equipped with the military prowess to combat the Taliban and they no longer want the United States involved or present in their country; even though, the Afghans can benefit from the United Military aid and financial
To most Americans who can remember exactly what they were doing on September 11, 2001 it feels as if it happened just last week, when in fact ten years has passed since the tragic even. Many still fear another major terrorist attack and some even fear the Muslim sitting next to them. One example of the uncertainty that has arisen as a result of 9/11 is all of the security measures that have been implemented. The department of Homeland Security was created as a direct result of 9/11 to fight terrorism. Controversial acts were passed in an effort to control terrorism, the Patriot Act.
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.
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.
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”.
