A Mad World
Around the modern world people tremble at the very thought of Radical Jihadists, or Terrorists, when trying to live their normal lives. Making strange eye contact to those who wear turbans or have Arabic origins. Secluding them from society and making comments of hatred towards their people. But, the people of the Western world do not ever acknowledge what might be causing these attacks in the first place. Westerners brand them as terrorists, they brand themselves as freedom fighters; people argue both ways on this topic. 9/11 was just one of the many effective displays of terror that they can cause among the Western powers. Islam also has interesting teachings, which turns some people into fanatics or zealots; driving them to commit such atrocities. Islamic Fundamentalism is the bad idea of mixing religion with politics, resulting in dictators who hate the U.S and most likely secretly support Al-Qaeda Thus resulting in the West generalizing the Arabic population as just being mindless terrorists. The attacks located at the Benghazi Embassy, another freighting display of power. America pretends they are not a problem, thinking that because the U.S is a super power it can handle anything the world can throw at them; this is not a laughing matter like U.S officials believe it to be. A red letter day, 9/11, an arguable point in this ongoing debate, is nothing short of an example of Western annoyances; 9/11 showed the power and influence this organization has. Terrorists attacks, no doubt, happen on a daily basis; civilization as we know it assumes they are insane or just downright idiotic, while others might argue they have a logical reason to.
(Personal Example) On the morning of September 11th 2011 a normal U.S citizen named Zach Marburger woke up to a normal day. Since his cousin was visiting he didn’t have a worry in the world. Playing outside on the swingset, talking about Pokemon cards, and even playing with little plastic army men to pass the time. Upon spending most of the day outside he and his cousin both went inside to relax in the living room of Zach’s house. Entering the home it seemed all fine inside, but when they both entered the living room something stuck them. Sitting down on the couch and watching the T.V they saw that the World Trade Center was stuck by two planes. During this age, emotionally they were not saddened, but instead asked themselves what would drive someone mad enough to drive planes into these towers; killing hundreds of innocent lives? This event became known as 9/11, a dark stain in American history and the world.
(Extended Case) At the dawn of the new century, America was attacked by Al-Qaeda on September 11th, 2001, the meaning behind this attack was confusing and difficult to solve for the International Community. Only a mad man would attack the world’s only superpower to date; this quickly escalated into a full scale reaction from the U.S. Declaring war on the country of Iraq, forming a...
