The Boston Marathon Bombing took place on April 15, 2013. The bombers used pressure cooker bombs during the marathon to kill three people. The bombing subsequently lead to shootings of on April 18 , 2013. The bombing injured 264 people were injured in the attack and was only 210 yards from the finish line. The FBI was the leader in the investigation on the Boston Marathon Bombing.
The FBI took control of the investigation took place on April 18 , 2016 and later that day the Chechen bothers were found. The brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were found the same day April 18 , 2016 due to the FBI releasing photographs and video of the brothers. The brothers opened fire on a police officer , the officer had severe bleeding but survived. A Boston police officer was also shot and was wounded and died later that year.
One of the brothers Tamerlan was injured in a firefight exchange between the police and died shortly after arriving at Boston's Beth Israel Hospital. Tsarnaev evaded the police , there was a full blown manhunt for Tsarnaev. The authorities asked for residents in the area to stay inside . The transportation system in Boston was shut down for the duration of the hunt and was the longest ever. They found Tsarnaev in the back of a boat in a residents yard.
We should have been ready for a attack because it was such a populated area. They should have checked the nearby buildings for bombs and terrorist. There should have been more security at the marathon. The marathon should have been more secure and blocked off from the bystanders. The attacks should have been avoided by normal security procedures done by the police.
On July 14 , 2016 there was a attack in Nice , France. The attack happened on Bastille days , when a cargo truck intentionally struck a crowd of people. The terrorist attack killed 86 and injured 434. The attacker Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel was behind the attack and was believed to have accomplices. The attack was killed on site after being shot at before driving into the crowd.
The people in the attack were celebrating Bastille days. The attack happened at 10:30 p.m. well the crowd was watching firework. The were believed to be five accomplices in the attack. The attack lasted only a few minutes as the attack drove through the crowd. People were running and trying to hide from the vehicle well the fireworks kept going.
The attack was claimed by ISIS and said that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel was a soldier of the ISIS group. The attack had been planned for months and was being ready to be played out. The French are fighting back against ISIS as they are sending troops to Iraq. The french army is conducting air attacks or ISIS to combat the issue. France has set a state of emergency under order until January 1 , 2017.
I believe that France should have seen it coming. They have been getting attacked by terrorist for almost a year and Bastille days is a very big holiday with people outside which makes France vulnerable. France going under state of emergency is a good idea so that they can avoid as many civilian casualties as possible from terrorist attacks. Terrorism is destroying there country and has plagued them for the last year and has been getting progressively worse so fighting the war on ISIS is the best opportunity of them stopping attacks.
On September 11, 2001 tragedy struck, 2,966 people were killed and more then 6,000 others were injured when the twin towers were struck. At 8:45 a.m. a passenger jet struck the northern tower leaving the tower weak. At 9:03 a.m. another passenger jet crashed into the southern tower. At 9:43 a.m. the Pentagon was struck by Airlines flight 77 leaving a huge hole in the side. At 10:10 a.m. a plane crashed in western Pennsylvania carrying 40 passengers.
The passenger Boeing 767 that struck the northern tower was the first of the attack. The Boeing 767 was carrying 20,000 gallons worth of jet fuel. The planes crash left a giant hole in 80th floor of the tower. Another Boeing 767 struck the southern tower 18 minutes later . The world was in disbelieve as the towers were burning.
The western part of the Pentagon was struck by Airlines flight 77. The fuel from the plane burned the building and led to building damage. The pentagon attack killed 189 people of those people 125 of them were military personnel. United flight 93 was in flight when it was hijacked. The plain was controlled by hijackers when passengers on board fought back . The plane was crashed in a field in Pennsylvania , the plane was headed for the White house.
I think we could have avoided this incident by raising security at airports before the attack. The attack was a surprise to the United states. We should have been prepared for a attack before it happened.
The incident was the single most deadly terrorism attack in French history. ISIS was responsible for the attack on Paris, France. These attacks took place on November 13, 2015 and timed from 9:20 p.m. till 12:20 a.m. There were seven different attack locations and over 100 people killed. The French president François Hollande declared it "an act of war".
At 9:20 p.m. at Stade de France the first explosion occurred. The first explosion was outside the stadium in a shop , the second explosion was inside the stadium . Both of the bombs were set off by suicide bombers wearing similar vest. The president of France was inside the stadium watching the soccer game but was evacuated safely. Four people were killed outside the stadium , the explosion could be heard as the game was being played.
At 9:25 p.m. two restaurants were attacked by armed men. The men were carrying Kalashnikov-styled assault rifles, the men were wearing full black outfits. The gunmen killed 15 people and 10 more people were wounded. There were over 100 shell casing found at the scene.
How I believe we can stop this is by raising security around the world. The bombings are happening in poverty stricken countries that have low security. This makes countries a higher target as it would be easier for a attack. We need to deal with these terrorist groups , we haven't found a way to stop them yet and so they keep attacking.
