Introduction The problem that I am facing is Terrorism in USA.Terrorism has to be stopped because there is nothing we can benefit from we only get depression, fear, instability, and families that break apart. The country cannot recover from these acts quickly and lots of innocent people die just from political warfare.Today, there are always risks of future attacks from terrorists, a recent act was the one on Christmas where a hijacker failed to crash into Detroit, Michigan.
9/11 Attacks The 9/11 attacks in 2001, has a really big affect on the United States as a whole. 9/11 happened in New York, where two planes crashed into the World Trade Center Towers. After a few hours from the crash, the two long buildings collapsed to the ground and that resulted in the death of around 2973 victims and 19 terrorists.
Social Impacts Socially the 9/11 attacks had a lot of impact. The attacks made mostly all of the Americans stand as a community and put their hands together to defend their country from terrorists.The attacks also depressed the citizens hearts as the attacks put a lot of fear into their minds. This also affected the transportation, schools, building, offices, malls and almost everything closed for a week or so in New York City which is recognized as “The city that never sleeps”.
Political Impacts After the attacks there was a lot of racism happening not just from America but from the whole western world towards Muslims. They all declared that Muslims were terrorists and that they didn’t respect any other religion.After the attacks, people from America said that Arabs were the same as Al Qaeda and that Arabs were just Muslims who wanted to kill non- Muslims.These blames made the Arabian people lose confidence and trust towards America as well as American people lost trust and confidence towards the Arabs. The world saw the other side of Americas face, where they went to Iraq and Afghanistan and they killed everybody and used bombs to kill many innocent people.
Economic Impacts After the attacks America had to pay billions to re-enforce the damages.People after the attacks did not buy things , which made the sales in New York fall for a period of time.America went to a war after the attacks against Afghanistan , they were claiming that Al Qaeda were responsible for the attacks. During the war which is still on today, America wasted billions of Dollars to supply their army with the latest Machinery, Weapons and Technology. As well as helping the soldiers and supplying money to nurse the soldiers.So, this war contributed to a major shortfall in the stock market today.
Environmental Impacts Another big impact was when America decided to go to war after the attacks, they destroyed many lands and crops in Afghanistan. The bombs and chemical weapons destroyed the soil in parts of Afghanistan. That impact made another impact, where people could no longer grow crops and farmlands as well as animals ate poisoned chemicals and lots of animals died because of the bombings that happened and are still happening today in the Afghani war.That had a major affect in the environment in America and In other countries. The attacks so lots of smoke risen to the air. These smokes increased the pollution in America, people in New York were not getting fresh air for more than a week after the attacks. These smoke also affected global warming and it enhanced in the destruction of the ozone layer.
Solutions America once said that they are fighting for Democracy. They are not doing that, they are being hypocrites and they are not doing what they are saying. If they do work towards what they are saying we will see a major change in the world and everything will be back to normal. The problem with America is that they are against Muslims and Arabs. They only take the side of the Israelis. Even if the Israelis are wrong they stick with them. Unless this problem is resolved there will never be peace neither for the Arabs/Muslims or America or who ever is involved.On the other hand, if we educate the poor and create jobs and balance the wealth better there will be less terrorism.
Conclusion Two airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center Towers in 9/11/2001. That was the biggest terrorist attacks of all time in America and there were 2973 victimsBecause of this attack we had impacts on the economy, environment, politics and the Society. Because of these attacks we didn’t only see America get affected, we saw the whole world get affected from the market deficit, and we saw America lose more than 50000 people in a war against Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. All of that for a Terrorist Attack that saw 2973 people die from over 90 nations.
