    Failure to Prevent 9/11 When a giant explosion ripped through Alfred P. Murrah federal building April 19, 1995, killing 168 and wounding hundreds, the United States of America jumped to a conclusion we would all learn to regret. The initial response to the devastation was all focused of middle-eastern terrorists. "The West is under attack", (Posner 89), reported the USA Today. Every news and television station had the latest expert on the middle east telling the nation that we were victims of ji...

    1,107 words
    "After 9/11, Everything Changed" It's true. Most of us have not only heard this said, but we have said it ourselves. After 9/11, everything changed. How so, you ask? Many of our attitudes towards people of different ethnic backgrounds and religions have changed. Many of us have changed where we stand on the issue of immigration. We, as a country, as Americans, have changed in ways we never thought possible. Certain questions I need to address in analyzing this issue are: Do we have a greater sen...

    September 11 in International Relations Theory An event as epochal as September 11 is bound to provoke theorists of international relations. Over the past year or so, there has been a race in academia to claim the first prize for the best theory to explain the events before and after September 11. The consensus is that the dominant discourse of realism has won, because it conceives of conflict and destruction as natural in an anarchical world (from Thomas Hobbes' 'anarchical state of nature'). I...

    In the Bible, the devil appears, most famously, as Jobs tormentor and Jesus tempter. (Get thee hence, Satan, Jesus declares in Matthew 4: 10, rebuking the devil for having offered him all the kingdoms of the world.) So if less than one in three Americans seems willing to give the devil his due, academic authorities say, then that is a result of fundamental, long-term shifts in the nations religious culture. R. Scott Appleby, a historian at the University of Notre Dame, said that within the Roman...

    CHAPTER 4 CONCLUSION Defining international terrorism continues to be a problem fraught with difficulties. Though, several attempts have been made and continue to be made by various scholars, governments and international organizations such as the United Nations, a universally accepted definition is still a long way off, if ever it can be achieved. Such an impasse is due to various reasons. First, vested interests exist of nations using international terrorism as an extension of state policy but...

    Aftereffects of September 11 The impact of the attacks on the United States has been far reaching and has touched all Americans in some way.

While the attack resulted in loss of life for some, others lost their jobs, incomes and homes. Travelers have lost the ease of travel that was once enjoyed in the United...

    My Response To 9/11 September 11, 2001 has marked its spot in history. I remember the day just like it was yesterday. It was about 8: 00 or 9: 00 in the morning and I was on the way to the dentist. I remember turning on the radio thinking why aren't the Disc Jockeys playing any songs.

    2,519 words
    The War on Terror, at least in the attack on Iraq, has been fought for reasons not entirely clear. However, suppositions may be drawn from certain events. Clearly, the argument made for the invasion of Iraq-its possession of weapons of mass destruction- is looking more disreputable by the day. Despite this, the Prime Minister, John Howard, is resolute in his arguments. As late as Monday 16th June 2003, Mr Howard was telling Parliament that investigations by the Office of National Assessments had...
