War on Terrorism 9/11/2001 That Changed the Nation
The attacks of 9/11 left the United States in a state of disbelief and hurt. I’m going to explain to you about the day that changed the Nation. It changed the world and put fear into the heart of the Americans, the American that has been known to be the strongest.
When analyzing the world's current situation concerning terrorism, it is difficult to say whether the global war on terrorism has been a successful one. Since the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Centers in New York City, George Bush, former president of the United States, vowed to defeat terrorism. Moreover, to entirely grasp the subject, one must be familiar with the definition of terrorism and it can be defined as an act of violence or threatened violence intended to spread panic in a society, and to bring about political change. Terrorists do not necessarily live in their native states, majority migrate to neighboring countries, and countries and often go undetected. The logistics and man power it takes to combat terrorism is immense, and it seems more evident that the global war on terrorism is not succeeding due to essentially three factors. First, that The United States has created a terrorist haven in the Middle East. Second, international support for the global war on terrorism is decreasing. Third, terrorism has been on the constant increase since 911. Sept 11, 2001 changed the world forever because the attack on the two most powerful economic symbols which was the Twin Towers World Trade Center and the Pentagon. On September 11, 2001, I woke up believing it was going to be a safe and productive day, but sadly to say at 10:00 we were notified of the attack that have taken place on the twin tower and the pentagon. At that moment, the directors excuse the entire office for the day due to the attack and that our office was in the CDC building. I remember tears of fear and hurt falling from everyone eyes as we watched the new as the twin towers collapsed. The attack was all we heard on television and radio that current day. Terrorists hi jack four jet planes and target was the world trade center and the pentagon, there was another intended target but America do not know which government building, it could have been the capital or the White House. The first plane crashes the plane into tower one and the building collapse not know if it collapses from a bomb or something else. Unfortunately, towers two was target and collapse. When the two targets were collapsing, the entire world was watching the death toll rise to approximately 3,000. The third plane flew his plane into the pentagon causing the pentagon to burst into fire and one side the pentagon collapsed. The attack took the lives of 189 military personal and civilians. The fourth plane took place in Pittsburg. The intend target could have been for the capitol building or the white house. However on flight 93 there were many brave passages that heard what happened with the prior attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon, they refuse to go without a fight they took action into their hands. They had courage to fight for their nation. They are considered heroes of flight 93. The attack on America on September 11, 2013 was to destroy the freedom of America and destroy the two most symbols of Americas power and influence. The pentagon is the headquarters of the Dept of Defense (BBC). Both are powerful symbols of economic and military mighty (New Nation). Days followed saw a significant effect on world economic market confidence (BBC). In some instates they be fighting over power at the sometimes having biblical disagree between countries. . Al-Qaida and Bin Laden group who was trained and funded financial by the United States carried out President Bush called America is now at war the attack. On the evening, the President calls...
How were the United States goals in World War I similar or different to the United States goals for fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan?
The United States goals in World War I and Iraq and Afghanistan are very different, and this is partly because they are in totally different time periods and the technology is very different. World War I took place from 1914-1918 (Strachan 1), whereas thewars in Iraq and Afghanistan started in 2003 and are still going (Deese 1), although many of the United States goals have already been accomplished. Also, the causes of the wars were totally different. They were not started for similar reasons partly because of the time period, and because of some of the conflicts with other countries.
The United States had a few prominent goals in World War I that stood out among some of the others, and one of them was making allies with other countries so that they could become more powerful (Strachan 1). They did this in many ways; one of them was joining to fight on the “allies” side of the war with Britan, France, and Russia (Varho 1). This would help them to become more powerful, and to win the war because the “axis” powers weren’t able to stand up to a whole new country pushing the military on them as well. Also, the United States joined the allies...

The Russian Revolution
The 1917 Russian Revolution was not, as many people suppose, one well organised event in which Tsar Nicholas II was overthrown and Lenin and the Bolsheviks took power. It was a series of events that took place during 1917, which entailed two separate revolutions in February and October (with a great deal of political wrangling in-betweens), and which eventually plunged the country into Civil War before leading to the founding of the Communist State.
The Great Depression
* Herbert Hoover (1874-1964), a Republican, was president when the Great Depression began. He infamously declared in March 1930 that the U.S. had “passed the worst” and argued that the economy would sort itself out. The worst, however, had just begun and would last until...

Was Dropping the Atomic Bomb Justified
While writing my exploratory essay about Mechanical Engineering, I stumbled upon
Engineering in the Air Force. From there, I dove into different military research until I found a
summary of the events in World War2. World War2 was a war that lasted 6 years, from 1939 to
1945, and there was many countries involved, including: The United States, Germany, Japan,
Soviet Union, Britain, and many more. The war was ended shortly after the United States
dropped the atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, but I wanted to know if dropping the
bomb was absolutely necessary. Therefore, the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and
Nagasaki because the United States wanted to force Japans surrender as soon as possible to save
the United States money, the United States needed to use the atomic bomb before The Soviet
Union did, and Truman wanted to prevent anymore American casualties.
All throughout World War2, Japan and the United States fought many battles one
including the surprise bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 6, 1941, the Battle of Midway,
battles at Iwo Jima and Okinawa, and finally the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The
United States dropped the first atomic bomb on Japan because the United States wanted to win
...Origins of WWII
- understanding the outbreak of the Second World War requires keeping a perspective on interplay of and convergence of several factors…many historians are tempted to see WWII as a continuation of WWI, and call the period 1914-1945, the Thirty Years war1) Legacy of WWI and its Peace Treaties - the “politics” of Versailles very nearly destroyed Weimar in the early 1920’s, contested territorial settlements and state power (especially for Germany and to a lesser extent for Italy) continued to be a weakness for regimes that lost the war or the peace, making for unstable peace foundations that undermined will for collective security (rather, ‘revising’ Versailles system was implicit foreign policy of those states)
2) International Economics During the Interwar Period – reparations and the “economic consequences” as Keynes warned in 1921, poisoned relations between states…the burden of reparations and maintaining debt payments developed into the “borrowed time” scenario of U.S financing the int’l system…also the 1920’s was marked by growing protectionism and barriers to trade and nations raised tariffs and Europe favoured trade within their Imperial blocs…the effects of the Great Depression were international and compromised the stability of U.S, then Germany, eventually Western Europe…nations were focused on national solutions to the economic collapse, catastrophic decline in...
... World War I, also known as the First World War or the Great War, was a global war centred in Europe that began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. More than 9 million combatants and 7 million civilians died as a result of the war, a casualty rate exacerbated by the belligerents' technological and industrial sophistication, and tactical stalemate. It was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, paving the way for major political changes, including revolutions in many of the nations involved.
The war drew in all the world's economic great powers, which were assembled in two opposing alliances: the Allies and the Central Powers of Germany and Austria-Hungary. Although Italy had also been a member of the Triple Alliance alongside Germany and Austria-Hungary, it did not join the Central Powers, as Austria-Hungary had taken the offensive against the terms of the alliance. These alliances were reorganised and expanded as more nations entered the war: Italy, Japan and the United States joined the Allies, and the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria the Central Powers. Ultimately, more than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilised in one of the largest wars in history.
The immediate trigger for war was the 28 June 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary,...
World War1 made a colossal impact to all aspects of human life around the world, everyone who fought, witnessed, and survived from this catastrophic event was impacted on each to different degrees and consequences. One of the major groups who were affected by World War1 were the women of Britain, playing a significant role to provide for their family and for the men who fought in thewar.
With the early rush of volunteers in 1914 and the conscription in 1916 led to a shortage of manpower on Britain’s home front, this then led to women taking up jobs normally done by the men such as farming or bank clerks. This was the start of a major social change as prior to the war a women’s main job was to stay at home to bring up the family and to do domestic work. Both source A and source B show how women’s lives had changed at the home front in Britain during World War1, source A shows a photograph of women working in a munitions factory, this is an example of how women’s roles changed during this time as a women’s main job was staying at home and not to get their hands dirty. Source B is an image of a type of propaganda which was used during that time to get women involved in the war by taking over jobs normally done by men, such as a munition worker.
The importance of women in the workforce had grown...
...EGT Task 2:
A. Price elasticity of demand (Ed) is used to determine if percent change price increases
will percent change quantity demanded decease. In price elasticity of demand (Ed)
there are three possible coefficient categories that can result; elastic, inelastic and
unit elastic. Key components to remember when determining coefficient category, the
threshold is set at one, there are only absolute values, no negative numbers, and the
coefficient can only be categorized as elastic, inelastic and unit elastic. To determine
if the coefficient is elastic, inelastic or unit elastic they would have the following
When price elasticity of demand (Ed) is elastic the coefficient will be greater than one
(Ed > 1). When a percent price change occurs quantity demanded responds strongly
and there will be a large change in quantities consumers purchase. There is price
sensitive in this scenario.
If price elasticity of demanded (Ed) is inelastic the coefficient will be less than one
(Ed < 1). When a percent price change occurs quantity demanded doesn’t respond
strongly and there’s a small change in quantities consumers purchase. There a weak
price sensitive in this scenario.
Lastly, if price elasticity of demanded (Ed) is unit elastic the coefficient will be equal
to one (Ed = 1).Whenever there is a percent change in price there is an equally
matched percent change in quantity demanded. This...
