Oklahoma City Bombing

...​Terrorism is a horrible threat to the modern world. It has become a problem around the world. Many innocent people are killed by terrorists. You can see terrorism in multiple forms including but not limited to, bombing, hijacking, cross border terrorist activities and massacres on a massive scale. Its consequences are very frightening. Though much effort is put into eliminating terrorism, it is impossible to get rid of it until some strict laws are devised. Whenever and wherever society is victim to brutality, injustice, wrongs and intolerance, terrorism cannot be eradicated. Terrorism was a dormant issue in the media until the attacks on the USA. The organized use of violence to target non-combatants for political purposes, is one of the most effective ways to gain media attention. Mainly used by extremist groups in the hopes of gaining recognition for their cause (weather it is religious, political or otherwise.) Several attacks on the US have recently made headlines. The attack on the USS Cole (October 12, 2000), US Embassy bombings in Kenya + Tanzania (August 7, 1998), Oklahoma City bombing (April 19, 1995) and finally the World Trade Centre bombing on February 26 1993. What we need to recognize about terrorism is its message. Attacks are always perfectly planned and precise, almost showing that they could do better. It was a clear, beautiful day in the town of Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. Richard Williams arrived to work as normal, waving and smiling to his......

Perspectives on Bombing

...operation in history and it’s victims included citizens from 90 different countries. President Bush is said to have written in his diary that night that the world had witnessed the “Pearl Harbor of the 20th Century” Once Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda had been identified as the perpetrators of 9/11, President Bush was quick to roll out a plan of action. On September 20 he gave the leaders of the Taliban clear and specific demands: close terrorist training camps, hand over the leaders of al-Qaeda and return all foreign nationals including Americans that are unjustly detained within Afghanistan. The Taliban rejected President bush’s ultimatum, and on 7th October 2001, the United States launched Operation Enduring Freedom. US soldiers began bombing Taliban and al-Qaeda training camps and bases in Afghanistan. By destroying camps and disrupting communications, it was made much more difficult for the terror network to train new recruits and coordinate their evil plans. They used a combination of air power and small numbers of Special Forces to fight the Taliban. At the same time, the oppressed people of Afghanistan knew generosity of America and it’s allies. As the soldiers struck their military targets, they also dropped food, medicine and supplies to the starving and suffering men, women and children of Afghanistan. The United States of America is a friend to the Afghan people, and they are the friends of almost a billion worldwide who practice the Islamic faith. Since......

Nucor in 2009

...Title of the Case: Nucor in 2009 Time Context or Period: 1905-2009 of Nucor Summary of the Case: In 1905, Ransom E. Olds, creator of the Oldsmobile, had a dispute with stockholders and left his own company — Olds Motor Works. He soon formed REO Motor Company, which evolved into the Nuclear Corporation of America and ultimately, Nucor. In 1962, this was the year that Nuclear Corporation made two moves that would soon change the company and ultimately the American steel industry. First, they acquired a company called Vulcraft, an unassuming producer of steel joists and girders. Second, to run Vulcraft, they hired a man named Ken Iverson who would soon emerge as one of the great visionaries and mavericks in American industry. Barely staving off bankruptcy, Nuclear appointed Ken Iverson as its new president. He acted quickly to put the company on a course toward profitability including selling off inefficient divisions. Not long after we shed our conglomerate business model to become a highly focused steel producer, The board of directors elected to change the name of the company from Nuclear Corporation of America to simply Nucor. Since then, Nucor has contributed over 70 million dollars to Scholarships and Educational Disbursements. It is a source for millions of dollars for educational funding. To this day, every child of every Nucor teammate is entitled to educational funds from the company. Now, Nucor is one of the leading steel producers in the United States.......

Oklahoma City Bombing

...Tim McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing Born to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Bill McVeigh, Tim McVeigh was hit hard by the separation of his parents at age 10 in 1978,something he hardly showed. He rarely spoke about his mother and spoke fondly about his father. Being a low achiever in high school and not so interested in college, he hit the job market in the mid-1980s, a time when the men with the blue-collar skill were hardly needed. In high school Tim was really obsessed with guns, such that by the time he was 20, he was able to explode bombs and even shoot guns Tim was raised up in a conservative family; an exclusive one in the absence of the mother who had left with Jennifer, Tim’s sister at age 4.Bill McVeigh worked the midnight shift in an auto plant that his father had put his 30 years. Tim’s sister Patty took the role of the house’s disciplinarian even though she was barely 2 years older than Tim. He had his way of having friends around by having a skateboarding ramp and a haunted house at their house’s basement. Bill McVeigh bought Tim a 22-caliber rifle which he used in the woods before acquiring a semiautomatic BB gun which he was really proud of. His way of passing time during boring classes was drawing guns and had this patriotic way of talking about defending America. A few computer classes here and there he got him bored so he took up a job as a truck driver. The only two things he found interesting about this job was that he could carry a gun besides...

The Bombing of the American Embassy

...The Bombing of the American Embassy in Kenya | | POL-375 International Terrorism | Abstract Americans have focused majorly on the horror and devastation of September 11, 2010. The media covered acts of heroism and terrorism on US soil. These events were horrific; however, they were not the first time that terrorism has touched our precious land. The bombing of the US Embassy, in Kenya, is just one incident that occurred prior to 911. When we think of terrorism towards the US, everyone naturally thinks of 911; although, this would be a natural reflect, it shouldn’t be. Our country has been under attack several years prior to that memorable day. Does anyone remember the “powerful terrorist car bomb exploded outside US embassy in Kenya, killing at least 81 people – including eight Americans – and injuring more than 1600.” (William Claiborne. The Washington Post. Washington, D.C.: Aug 8, 1998. pg. A.01) American lives were lost on this day, also. Not only were there Americans among this death toll, but it was “confirmed that Osama bin Laden planned, financed and executed the attack.” (Jack Kelley. USA TODAY. McLean, Va.: Aug 21, 1998. pg. 04.A) As we live in the comfort of our homes, and go about our lives; our country has been under assault from this mastermind dating back to 1995. This event has familiar aspects to the mayhem that occurred on September 11th. There was a simultaneous bombing at the US Embassy in Tanzania on August 8th. These......

Uss Cole Bombing (2000)

...ase SAILAJA BODEPUDI USS COLE BOMBING (2000) On October 12, 2000, suicide terrorists exploded a small boat alongside the USS Cole—a Navy Destroyer—as it was refueling in the Yemeni port of Aden. Yemen plays a key part in the ability for U.S. and coalition maritime forces to operate in the region. The blast ripped a 40-foot-wide hole near the waterline of the Cole, killing 17 American sailors and injuring many more. This boat bombing was a new methodology, which was used by the terrorists to attacks on their counterparts. As a consequence of the attack, concentrated on executing approaches to enhance U.S strategies and practices for mitigating terrorist attacks on U.S. was used by the terrorists to attacks on their counterparts. Three groups claimed responsibility for the Aden attack – the Islamic Army of Aden-Abyan previously unknown in Yemen, the Army of Mohammed, and the Islamic Deterrence Forces (IDF). A suspected al Qaeda terrorist wanted in connection with the October 2000 bombing of the USS Cole exploded himself with a grenade late Wednesday as Yemeni security strengths surrounded him in Yemen's capital city, security sources said. Authorities had gone to a suspected al Qaeda fort, a house in a poor area of Sana's downtown, and a firefight resulted. The suspect bounced into a taxi, and as authorities attempted to stop the vehicle, the man hauled out an explosive and was clearly attempting to toss it when it blasted in his grasp, sources said. A police identified......

Church Bombing

...Sixteenth Street Baptist Church Bombing The Civil Rights Movement contained hundreds of events that affected the lives of millions of blacks and whites. Many people know about the “March on Washington” or MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Some critical events during this time period were not so peaceful or uplifting though. Lots of events included deaths, explosions, bombs, or just plain sadness and tragedy. The events, causes, and results of the Sixteenth Street church bombing, which occurred in the 1960’s, were an important part of the Civil Rights Movement in America. The Birmingham church bombing was a major event in the Civil Rights Movement. On Sunday, September 15th, 1963 a bombing occurred at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. This was the seventh bombing in Birmingham within six months! About 200 members of the church were in the building on this horrific day (History.com 2). Most were going to Sunday school or preparing for the 11am service. Four girls, wearing white, were preparing for their church’s annual youth-day worship service. They were getting ready in a bathroom underneath a staircase. A Caucasian man had been seen getting out of a turquoise Chevrolet and placing a box somewhere around the church earlier this day. At around 10:22 am, a box of fifteen dynamite sticks with a timer hooked to them exploded at the church (Hampton and Fayer 171). The detonation of the bomb happened on the east side of the church, under the...

Was the Bombing of Hiroshima Justified?

...Truman’s Decision - Was the bombing of Hiroshima justified or not? It was on the afternoon of 6th August 1945 that an event was believed to change and save the world forever. Harry Truman had made a life changing decision to drop an atomic bomb named “Little Boy” in Japan’s Hiroshima. The result of this weapon ended up in destroying more than 4 square miles of the city. The company who made the bomb was called Enola Gay. The motive behind the doing of this was to threaten Japan and make them surrender in World War 2. It is a fact that this was the first time in history that a nuclear weapon was used. This event is still one of the most important topics in history. It has been debated by an abundance of historians: Was it justified despite 129,000 innocent citizens died? There isn’t a definite answer to this but there were both sides to the story. Bombing was justified It is widely believed that the bombing was brutal and cruel. However, it was the reason that ended World War 2, and if America did not drop the bomb, the losses of soldiers would be even at a larger number than the amount of people who died in the drop of the bomb. It has also been said to save a lot of American’s lives and soldiers. This statement is backed up by the quotation “Fighting would be fierce and the losses heavy.” that was said by Harry S. Truman in 1955. This quote can tell us that during that time he believed that if the war was still going on, it was very likely that the upcoming......

The Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

...The Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7, 1941. An air attack led by Commander Mitsuo Fuchida, which consisted of 183 fighters and bombers, attacked Pearl Harbor at 7:55 a.m. During the bombing many ships were destroyed, and many soldiers died. This event would bring the United States into World War II. The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor because it was considered the height of America’s Naval supremacy. Another reason is that the Japanese knew the United States would primilary be using the navy to attack them. Since the Japanese were trying to take over China, they knew it would be a bit easier for them to do it because it would be harder for us to get to Japan and stop them if they destroyed the American Navy in Pearl Harbor. Despite how far Japan was from Pearl Harbor, it was still closer then the rest of the United States. The Japanese fleet had to sail over 4,000 miles to launch airplanes to attack Hawaii. The Japanese were able to attack Pearl Harbor because America's intelligence community failed to notice them. Some reasons why it was hard for the American intelligence community to notice the Japanese on their long naval journey, was the Japanese would only travel at night and would not use any radio communication. Any form of radio interception was impossible (Truman). The Manhattan Project started when Albert Einstein left Germany to come to the United States to escape Nazi prosecution. A month after Einstein had left Germany......

Atomic Bombing

...and Nagasaki on the most devastating military mission, The Enola Gay Dropped the worlds first atomic bomb.105, 000 died and 940,00 were inquired this causing 199,000 innocent citizens affected by the bombing. During the Second World War the United states spend six months of intense fire bombing on 37 Japanese cities this had done only little to break japan and they refused to surrender. The bombing involved an advantage of re-building the Japanese economy, which lead to very fundamental changes to the Japanese Government and Society. General Douglas MacArthur was chosen to be the Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers (SCAP), the command that was to govern Japan for the immediate future. SCAP introduced land reformation, made to benefit the large number of tenant farmers and reduce power of rich land owners. The economy dictated a new constitution for Japanese leaders and downgraded the emperor’s status, which was made able to place more power on the parliamentary system, promoting greater rights and chances for women. MacArthur’s right of way was to carryout a political revolution that would establish constitutional democratic government for Japan. Dropping the bomb meant that tens of thousands of civilians would die. But during the war, all sides had become used to the bombing of civilian targets, Americans hatred of the Japanese grew very strong. Was it a bomb that never should have been dropped? People argued that it shortened the war and keep the subsequent peace.......

Khobar Towers Bombing

...Khobar Tower Bombing Introduction: Terrorism, across the globe has many kinds of very complex meanings and definitions. Terrorism is a very powerful word, which creates fear in all the entire population of the world. According to FBI, terrorism is involving violent acts or acts which are dangerous to human life that violates federal or state law (FBI, 2015). Usually, there are many different causes that make people choose terrorism. Some of the causes include ideologies, political issues, religious issues and socio-economic issues (Zalman, 2015). Terrorist activists in general think that they are fighting for a cause, but they don’t know that the way they chose to fight is affecting innocent civilians in a negative way. In the past also there have been many terrorist attacks on U.S., either directly in U.S. or outside the U.S. on USA assets, troops etc. The attacks include World Trade Center bombing, Murray Federal Building bombing, USS Cole bombing in Yemen, Khobar Towers bombing on U.S. force in Saudi Arabia, 9/11 attacks on World Trade Center towers and Pentagon (Bullock, Haddow, Coppola, 2013).

The 1920 Wall Street Bombing

...With Occupy Wall Street gaining headway and the country seeing greater inequality than ever, anarchists and socialists protested in the streets of Lower Manhattan’s “Corner” in a rage at the banking systems. Before the turn of the century, the feelings projected toward the financial barons of New York were all but tranquil. Because the majority of the wealth among a few happened at the expense of laborers and echoed with Americans, its result lead to terrorism (King 2011). On September 16, 1920, an explosion tore through the streets of Lower Manhattan’s “Corner”. The Wall Street Bombing of 1920 was the deadliest terror attack on American soil until the Oklahoma bombing 75 years later. The blast killed 38 people and injured hundreds of others (Andrews, 2015). Although the case remains unsolved to this day, there were many suspects. Investigators believe their strongest lead was the Italian anarchists of the time. On Thursday September 16, 1920, an unknown driver pulled a horse drawn wagon filled with one hundred pounds of dynamite and sash weights up to the corner of Wall and Broad Streets in Lower Manhattan, an area often called “The Corner”. “The Corner” was described by author John Brooks as “the precise center, geographical as well as metaphorical, of financial America and even of the financial world.” The building on “The Corner”, housed the most powerful financial institution in the world, J.P. Morgan Co., as well as professionals like J.P. Morgan Jr. and Thomas......

Case Study; Jakarta Indonesia

...Case in Point: Jakarta, Indonesia There is an urgent need to improve the environment and quality of life in cities, particularly in the rapidly growing megacities of developing countries. Consider Jakarta, Indonesia, with a population of about 13 million. Jakarta is plagued with many of the problems found in other rapidly growing megacities in the developing world. The air in Jakarta is badly polluted with the exhaust from cars, buses, and motorbikes that transport about 2 million commuters into the city each day. The lack of public transportation contributes to congested traffic, with vehicles sitting in traffic jams, spewing air pollutants into the air. Currently, Jakarta is considered among the top Asian cities with the worst air quality. Water pollution is also a critical problem. At least 95% of human wastes produced in the city are not cleaned up at sewage treatment plants. Instead, human sewage and garbage are dumped directly into nearby rivers (Figure 25.11). Jakarta’s municipal water supply is so polluted that piped water must be boiled before drinking. Figure 25.11 Water pollution in Jakarta, Indonesia. As groundwater has been depleted to meet the city’s needs, parts of Jakarta have subsided, making many areas more flood-prone, particularly during the rainy season. In 2007, for example, low-lying areas of Jakarta were inundated by floods that forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes. About 40% of Jakarta is below sea level. Illegal squatter......
