We loaded them into the Humvee which had quickly become crowded when the side of it was lit up by enemy fire from an adjacent building. The soldier on the .50 caliber lit up the side of the building with a few bursts from his gun turning the walls into nothing more than rubble. No one returned

He shot indiscriminately at morning commuters on the 55 Freeway, hitting at least three cars. In the end, authorities say the gunman killed three people and wounded three others before fatally turning his gun on himself. Authorities were stunned by what they described as the "senseless violence," which spanned about 25 miles of normally placid suburbia.
As Cyrus’ family searches for him he comes running out and jumps from the tier and kills himself. Two of the gang members start to collect money and set half of a row on fire, anybody who had water used the last of the last of it to put it out. One of the gang members starts a fight a preacher and almost cracks his skull open. The next day Katrina finally stops, but that didn’t mean they were free to go. All of the people who were in the Superdome had to go into a barricaded fence area where the conditions were just as bad.
We repulsed the attack, with the help of a friendly airstrike, but we only had 13 men left. We were ordered to destroy the artillery with explosives at retreat to friendly territory. I could not believe I was still alive. I remembered killing many Chaos warriors, by stabbing a bayonet in the weakest part of their armor, their helmet. As they had crumpled to the ground, bleeding
The 1983 Bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon Jason Sauerland Southwest Florida College Abstract The bombing ob the United States Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, Lebanon was a very tragic incident for all American soldiers. It was the United States’ first experience with a suicide bomb, the largest non-nuclear explosion detonated on the face of the Earth, and it marked the beginning of an era for the Middle East and the United States. On October 23, 1983, at approximately 6:30 AM, a yellow Mercedes delivery truck drove to Beirut International Airport, where the United States Marines had their headquarters. The truck was a hijacked water delivery truck, and was driven by Ismalal Ascari, an Iranian. The truck contained about 12,000 pounds of TNT, and it plowed over the barbed wire fence and past
A ball of fire hit the Hummer causing it to shatter into pieces knocking them all out. Jason was thrown through a shop window and remained unconscious while Katherine was thrown onto the sidewalk and was woken up when her head hit the ground. A greatly agonizing throb went through her head as she felt the gash from where her head collided with the rough sand and concrete underneath and the loud sounds of people screaming, car pieces falling from the sky, and the many vibrations of feet slapping the ground as they tried to escape the blast she looked up for a brief moment to see turmoil all around her she noticed a soldier with a single tear streaming down his face holding his fallen comrade. But she only felt pain for a few seconds until one of the doors from the Hummer landed on her, knocking her out again but also shielding her from the rest of the debris as it fell from the sky.She woke up to a bright light searing her eyes. She let out a scream of pain and reached out for whatever was around to shield her eyes.

Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The explosion wrecked much of downtown Oklahoma City and killed 168 people, including 19 children in a day-care center. Another 500 were injured. Although many Americans initially suspected an attack by Middle Eastern radicals, it quickly became clear that the mass murder had actually been carried out by domestic, right-wing terrorists. The slaughter engineered by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, men steeped in the conspiracy theories and white-hot fury of the American radical right, marked the opening shot in a new kind of domestic political extremism.
