What´S The War On Terror? Essay

1368 words - 6 pages

What is the “war on terrorism?” A lot of people have different views on it but my perspective is that it is a series of tragedies led by a group of individuals or a single person that hates everything America stands for. These accounts of terror can include bombing, shooting, or even just injuring innocent people. Even though America is only 238 years old, it has been through so much terror such as having ten wars, so many natural disasters, shootings, and Islamic extremists attacking America such as the nine eleven attack, the Benghazi scandal, and the Boston bombing. I am for the war against terror because of all the dead and injured innocent Americans. Terrorism has to stop.

The people in the building had no way to survive so they had the choice of burning inside the building or jumping out and splattering to the cold hard street below. Some people had to do both because the top of the burning building fell to the ground. You could only imagine how terrifying it was for their family members that got a phone call from the victims. It has to feel awful when September eleventh comes around. Then the last plane blew up the second building and everybody knew then that it was in fact not an accident but instead a strategically planned attack by Osama Bin Ladin and his Islamic group AL’ Quieda. Thankfully last year Seal team six found and killed Bin Ladin in his house but unfortunately Al’ Quieda is still going strong today. The family members and even the law enforcements, paramedics, and firefighters had to live with that awful sorrow for the rest of their lives. It is safe to say that the law enforcements and paramedics were the heroes but the bravest were the friends and family members of the victims www.Discoverthenetworks.org page 1
Eleven years after the nine-eleven attack, there was another terrorist attack on an American diplomat meeting in Benghazi. Ironically, they were meeting to talk about peace with Libya. Then, before they knew it the American democrats were attacked by 150 terrorists. The ambassador called for help but the commander in chief, president Obama did not allow back up to help him. (He dose not even know how to salute correctly.)Ten other people were injured in the attacks. And then the worst part is our “president”,(terrorist) Barack Obama would not admit that it was an act of terrorism until a year and a half later. Ronald Reagan would have been honest. He blamed it on a youtube video. www.CIA.gov page 1
The Boston Marathon bombings were two bombings targeting fans and the runners of the city's annual marathon race on April fifteenth, 2013. The bombs were two pressure cooker bombs that came from a backpack that a foreign terrorist and his brother set on the sidewalk. It exploded and killed three people and injured 264 others near the finish line. Several runners lost their legs. Shortly after the FBI released pictures and a video the brothers came out of hiding after being scared from seeing the video that showed them setting the bomb and walking away. A lot of people started calling the FBI, informing them that they saw them at the race and at a party. The Boston police told residents to lock your doors and stay inside because these terrorists are extremely dangerous. The oldest suspect supposedly killed a police officer, carjacked a police SUV, and began an exchange of gunfire with the police in Watertown, Massachusetts. During the gunfight, a Boston police officer was injured but survived with severe blood loss. The...
