TERRORISM

              Terrorism is a problem in the world. This is what can cause war.  There is                  a few examples that I would like to show you like, the Boston Marathon Bombing, and      the 9/11 Twin Towers.

Boston Bombing

April 15, 2013

     It was a public marathon witch was held on patriot's day as a tradition. It was five hours into the marathon, and the first bomb exploded less than half a block from the finish line, on the north side of Boylston Street.Roughly 12 seconds later a second bomb exploded some 600 feet from the first. It too was planted on the north side of Boylston Street amid a crowd of onlookers. First responders reacted immediately, and a medical tent that had been erected to treat runners was turned into an emergency medical facility. Three bombing victims died of their injuries, and more than 100 of the seriously injured were transferred to area hospitals as local police and federal investigators surveyed a crime scene that covered 15 square blocks.

''In the weeks and months that followed, investigators attempted to understand the two brothers’ motives and determine whether they had ties to larger organized terrorist networks. Many also posed a question that was articulated by Pres. Barack Obama during an address to the nation; “Why did young men who grew up and studied here, as part of our communities and our country, resort to such violence?”''

September 11
Twin Towers

September 11, 2001

Militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliness and carried out suicide attacks against targets United States. Two of the planes were flown into the towers of World Trade Center in New York City.    

Did You Know?

September 11, 2001, was the deadliest day in history for New York City firefighters: 343 were killed. 2,608 total attacks and 226 fatal attacks in the U.S. between 1970 and 2011. Te

1) Terrorist attacks and attempted attacks in the United States have become less frequent since the 1970s — though Sept. 11, 2001 was a huge exception.

Keep in mind that the attacks on September 11, 2001 in New York City, Arlington, and Pennsylvania are counted as just four events, even though 2,996 people died, far more fatalities than all the rest combined. This chart only shows the frequency of terrorist attacks and attempted attacks, not severity.

Most terrorist attacks in the United States have relatively few deaths and injuries, but there have been 29 "mass-casualty events" since the 1970s

In the wake of the Boston marathon bombings in April, START released a report noting that the average terrorist attack in the United States has resulted in 3.3 casualties on average. ''Casualties'' includes both deaths and injuries.

However, that's just an average. 29 terrorist attacks have happened in the U.S. since 1970 known to have resulted in more than 10 casualties. That includes the 2,996 killed and 6,000 or more injured on September 11. It also includes the Boston bombings, which killed 3 and injured 264.
