Some argue it was not only morally wrong but a foolish military tactic. Thousands and thousands of innocent lives were lost with the dropping of the atomic bombs, including all of the radiation and sickness that it brought. Others say that Hiroshima and Nagasaki weren’t even legitimate military targets with civilians outnumbering soldiers six to one. This counterargument could be just as effective in a debate with all of the statistics and emotions tied to
In retaliation to these attacks that Al Qaeda carried out, U.S forces carried out air strikes on targets in Sudan and Afghanistan with success but did not achieve the ultimate goal of killing Osama in one of these attacks. Still though, that did not stop Osama from planning and carrying out more attacks. In October of 2000, Al Qaeda operatives bombed the USS Cole which was ported in Yemen at the time killing seventeen service members. This was the first time that Al Qaeda successfully carried out a terrorist attack on a U.S vessel. The attacks on September 11, 2001 is a day that many Americans will never forget as the
Able to achieve their desired purpose by eventually breaking through to the south and east, Americans were able to threaten to encircle German forces in Normandy from behind. However, this came at a great price of innocent civilians’ and soldiers’ lives. This ultimately resulted in the destruction of Caen due to bombing and fighting, and great casualties were a major result of this intense combat. Much of the destruction and death on Caen could have been prevented if the Allies had ultimately been more careful with following through orders, and had they taken more precaution in bombing the entire city, many civilians wouldn’t have had to pay the price. In conclusion, the Battle of Caen should be remembered for the great efforts of the Allied forces in preventing German expansion, however many should be informed on the opposing side in which the Allied forces created a great deal of the tragedy due to negligence, rage, and severe
He couldn’t even believe what was happening. Watching planes crashing to the Trade Center, seeing people only way is to jump off the building from the 78th floor, and then realizing we were being attacked. 9/11 was the day America changed and it is the worst attack in U.S history. More than three thousand died and our country in mixed emotions. Quickly fell on al-Qaeda, and in 2004, the group's leader, Osama Bin Laden, who had initially denied involvement,
The knowledge that we provided them allowed them to effectively turn four hijacked planes into deadly guided missiles. The tragic and devastating events of 9-11 are something that, from beginning to end, will forever live in the minds of many Americans as well as something that future generations will read about in history books. The unprecedented shock and suffering of a nation that was totally unprepared has created a unity, not only within our
Deneice Collins Instructor Williams English 1010 11 October 2012 Rhetorical Analysis of “President George W. Bush speech on the 9-11 attack On September 11, 2001 President Bush “Address to the Nation on 9-11-01” spoke on the series of deadly terrorist acts that took thousands of lives. In Bush’s view, “these acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat”. However, they failed because according to Bush we have the strongest country in the world. I feel no one deserved to go through such a lost. The anger the terrorist had against America is unethical.
Darryl Vick Dennis Phillips Eng. 111, 4301 25 April 2014 The Effects of 9/11 The attacks that took place in New York’s Manhattan city, on September, 11th, 2001 had rippling effects that caused a great deal of controversy. The chaos of the two planes soaring through the two towers crippled the American economy. It also created numerous health issues. Social issues were at another alarming effect that the effects of 9/11 had on the U.S.A.
Even though the troops who die volunteer and fight with pride, the United States should end the war on terror because it is causing damage to the economy and too many troops’ lives have been lost. Our death toll since the war started in Iraq and Afghanistan has damage us as Americans, because our death toll
Hiroshima and Nagasaki were both very populated cities that had military members living there. "As far as I am concerned I made one great mistake in my life, when I signed the letter to President Roosevelt recommending that atom bombs be made; but there was some justification - the danger that the Germans would make them” (Einstein 620). Many innocent women and children were killed. Areas near where the bombs hit were contaminated with radioactivity. People died of radiation months and even years later after the atomic bombs explosions.
9/11/01 was a very horrible day. On 9/11 a tragedy happened that Americans will never forget when the U.S. airlines were hijacked from suspected terrorist and 3 out of 4 targets were hit. The two twin towers and the pentagon were hit but they missed the 4th target, the White house. This is a day that people claim they will “never forget,” but memories fade over time, so it is important that Americans keep reminding each other of the tragedy so that we really do never forget those lost. Many people lost their lives that day.
