There was a terrorist attack in Des Moines, Iowa. The man shot two unexpecting officers in their cruisers. The man was identified as Michael Greene and was caught three hours later in Dallas Texas. The charges are pending on Michael Greene of the murder of two officers. The man confessed to the killings of the officers.
The man was sent to the hospital after confessing due to old medical problems. The slain officers were identified as Justin martin and Anthony Beminio. The police and trying to get a warrant to enter Michael Greene’s house to see if they can find some kind of illegal substance or weapons. The police belief the man had prior mental issues before this attack . Since 2001 the man has been arrested four separate times.
The man shot fifteen to thirty rounds at the police cruiser with a .223 caliber rifle. The officers were found at about one in the morning , well was found at about one thirty . Sgt. Beminio died shortly after being taken to the hospital . The officer's funerals were held Sunday November 7. The officers were one of many attacks on police officers this year.
I believe that this attack could not have been avoided by the officers. I think this attack happened due to the man's mental instability and his prior times he’s spent in jail. The man wasn’t in the right mindset and only wanted to do harm to people . The officers were unfortunately the man's target and were surprise attacked. The man is now in prison and will probably be serving life .
The Beslan attack took place on September 3 , 2004. The attack was in Beslan, Russia and killed 366 and injured 747 civilians. This attack is one of the worst attacks on Russian soil ever recorded. The attackers forced their way into a school , the attackers took hostages. The attack killed 156 children and injured 337 more.
The attack took place in a school. The attackers took over 1,000 hostages and killed many of them after they tried to escape. The attackers deliberately took small children as they knew they wouldn’t fight back. The terrorist took teachers as well as parents as they were in the school celebrating the first day of school . The hostages were taken to the gymnasium , the attackers then rigged the gym with explosives.
The hostages were not given water or food of any sort. The Russian special forces moved into the school and tried to enter the gym when the explosives went off. This killed many civilians and others were killed by fire. The attackers shot down any survivors, some civilians survived with shot wounds or burns. The Russian forces killed most of the attackers but one , the man fled the school and was later captured by the special forces.
This attack was a ambush on the school and was inevitable as there was no way to avoid it . The school was taken over by hostages and lasted two days with no food or water . I think this attack shows that terrorism is a big thing in the world and has to be stopped. This attack was targeting small children shows how messed up people in the world can be . This attack killed many people and injured even more , the attack affected people all around the world.
There are many terrorist groups, some have done more devastation than others. These groups were composed for destruction and mayhem. Terrorist groups can range from small groups to large groups in the thousands. These groups of terrorist can range from small scale attacks to global threats.
ISIS is a very well known terrorist group in modern day. There attacks have been focused on Europe mostly, but have also attacked the United states and Australia. Most of these attacks are concentrated on a certain person or location that would have the greatest impact on a community. ISIS has killed more than 1,200 people outside of Syria. ISIS is thought to have up to or even more than 80,000 members.
Al-Qaeda is the best known terrorist group. They have had the greatest impact of any terrorist group and have affected the most countries in the world. Al-Qaeda's most devastating attack was on American soil when a plane struck the twin towers. The group was founded by Osama bin Laden and the objective of the group was to unify Muslims through jihad . They killed thousands of innocent people.
The Taliban is a well known terrorist group in the middle East . This group was founded by Mullah Mohammed Omar in the mid 90's. The Taliban is known for human trafficking as well as drug trafficking. They believe in jihad and kill in his name. This group has killed thousands of innocent people as a believe in there god.
The Munich Massacre was a attack on Israeli Olympians. This attack took place on September 5, 1972 from 4:31 a.m. till 12:04 a.m. the next day. The terrorist group held responsible for this attack is known as Black September. Five of the eight terrorist connected to this attack were killed and the other three were captured. The attack happened by surprise as the members of the Olympic team were asleep.
The attack killed 11 Olympians and one German policemen. The terrorist hid their weapons in duffel bags and scaled a fence outside the Olympic Village. The attackers had used stolen keys to gain access to the building and sneak there way to the rooms of the Olympians. The attackers had an easy time getting the Olympic hostages as the Israelis did not have guards. The attackers snuck into the rooms and took the hostages and demanded 234 of the “Red Army Faction,” be released .
Yossef Gutfreund was a wrestling referee and the first awakened by the intruders. The man tried to keep the intruders out but was it was a futile attempt as the attackers pushed through. They shot Yossef in the cheek and forced him to help look for other hostages. Yossef led the to apartment 3 , the attackers took hostages and were taking them back to the coaches offices when Yossef attacked the intruders once more. This attack allowed Gad Tsobari to escape through a parking garage but left Yossef dead as the terrorist shot him to death.
I believe that this could have been avoided if the Israeli grouped have had guards or sometime of protection. The attack came out of nowhere and surprised the Olympians leaving them no time to defend themselves. The attackers used AKM assault rifles and forced the Olympians to move to the coaches offices were some confrontations happened and left one dead. 11 of the Olympians would be killed in this attack , 2016 was the first time that tribute was paid to the people in the attack. The attack left the 1972 Olympics in disbelief and horror after what had happened.
Will terrorism still be around in the future? Yes, terrorism will always be around. Terrorism is a attack of anger against a country usually, people will always find something that angers them. Terrorism can’t be stopped by just one person or one country . I believe that it would take the entire world working together to stop terrorism or even make it less of a global threat. Terrorism will always find a way to shake a country or the entire world.
How will we stop terrorism in the future? There is no real way to stop terrorism. Terrorist attack are at random without anyone knowing of the attack till after . Terrorism can’t be stopped because it can't be guessed when , or were a terrorist attack is going to take place. Terrorism will be stopped showing that it is a serious crime and punishable to full extent. Terrorism won’t be stopped anytime soon but we can decrease the amount of attacks by being ready and secure.
Is terrorism a big deal to worry about for the future? Yes, terrorism is a big deal. Terrorism kills thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people every year. Terrorism can cause wars or even civil wars. Terrorism cause countries billions of dollars to fix or bring back peace. Terrorism is a big deal in media, this makes people more aware of what's happening , which can lead to rioting and protesting in cities and towns.
How will terrorism affect people? Terrorism will make people feel scared and worried about there future for themselves and others. Terrorism affect everyone that will ever live , it might not be directly linked to them but it will always be around them. Terrorism always finds a way to affect your life. Terrorism has the effect to change people that haven’t even been born yet , it can change the world,
The act of suicide bombing wasn't notorious till after World War II. The first large scale suicide bombing took place on October 23 , 1983. The attack was on a U.S. base called Lebanon . The attacker drove a truck into the base and proceeded to detonate the vehicle. Suicide bombings have been plaguing countries all around the world , recently France has been targeted by large scale terrorism .
Why are acts of terrorism committed? Acts of terrorism are committed usually through anger for a country. Some terrorist believe that if they commit crimes like terrorism there god will praise them. Islamic and Muslim are seen as the focal point of terrorism due to large scale terrorism acts such as 9/11. Terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS plague countries all around the world. Terrorism acts usually focus on large populated places with sentimental value to that country.
Large scale terrorist attacks are usually on highly populated areas. Terrorism attacks can devastate countries or can lead to Civil War , many terrorist attacks in Iraq prompted a Civil War. Airports are terrorist most targeted large scale attacks , usually sneaking small weapons or bombs onto an airplane. Terrorist have found ways to sneak some bombs through airport security , these bombs are used to hijack a plane or to detonate in mid-air. Some terrorist will attack the airport itself with heavy weapons or suicide bombs strapped to them.
I believe that terrorism has to be stopped for a brighter future. The world wants world peace but that is not feasible with terrorist attacks happening. Terrorism has been going for as long as can be remembered and there hasn't been a solution to it yet. I think terrorism attacks happen mainly because there frustration due to other counties or their own country. Terrorism will probably never be stopped , there are new people every day joining terrorist groups.
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.
