7800-9-11movie

9.11 is one of tragedies all over the world. Terrorism action has happened seven years ago. What I think first about the terrorism action is Do not repeat twice! Not fact and cause of 9.11In the view, when I think homework of English I remembered one movie. The name of the movie is WORLD TREAD CENTER. The content, two policemen entered the bill to help the people who they can not move by injuring. But two policemen can not move by the second airplane occupied by bad men. That is they were injured. This movie is true story. So this is a documentary rather than the movie. This movie is clearly expressed the time of the tragic day by listening to testimony of two policemen, their families and witness. I think this movie is excellent to tell people Do not repeat twice! By the way, the cast is Nicolas Cage, and the supervisor is Oliver Stone.

7802-the recent terrorism-(2)

2008 年 10 月 22 日 水曜日

             Whatever their political views may be, most of mass media claims that the fundamental causes of terrorism must be poverty, lack of education, and conflicts of religions. While these views are widely accepted, I think that there might be other factors contributing terrorism.

              Let us call our memory of the 9.11 incident or 911 terrorist attacks in the land of America. Osama bin laden, the ringleader of this terrorism, is reported to have been well-educated and be very rich. Besides, some newspapers reported that the man who flew the planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center also seemed to have come from rich families and have been well-educated. Thus, it is evident that recent terrorists are motivated to take actions, nor by poverty and lack of education, but by their humiliation and anti-US prejudices.

              Nonetheless, terrorisms have a lot to do with areas of poverty and groups with lack of education. Terrorists need to have a headquarter somewhere. And it is reported that the best hiding place is the mountain in such country as Afghanistan. However, I am afraid that fighting with anxieties and furies on the poor conditions of political and educational system in those countries would not decrease the amount of terrorism as we would hope.

              In trying to wipe out terrorism, it may be no longer useful to provide aid and to promote education. If so, we would have to come up with better measures to cope with such problems. For example, money trade may be related to the terrorism.

One day, I talked with my friend working for a stock company; we talked about the terrorist groups’ involvement in the stock market. And we finally found that the sudden declaration of the U.S. against Osama bin laden was announced just two days after of his refusing U.S. rewards in dollars.

            In either case, recent terrorism is changing as I research the background issues of the 911 terrorism. Japan should find its own unique contribution in foreign policies so as not to needlessly upset any terror groups, so that the rest of the world can live in peace.

9.11

 

              The terrorist incident took place in America on September 11 2001. The U.S claims the ringleader of this 9.11 terror is Al Qaeda. America decided a retaliatory attack, so America invaded in Afghanistan.

              Some people has started suspecting that the 9.11 incident. This incident took place when I was a junior high school student. My intuition also told me that this may have been a fake planned by the U.S government, but I didn’t have any clear evidence of proofs. After beginning to fight in Afghanistan, America made a military Iraq target. Thus the U.S began to fight against countries in the Middle East. I guessed America want to acquire resources such as oil resources, so America made a convenient excuse, and America opened an attack on countries in the Middle East.

              We do not know the truth behind 9.11 attacks and the wars afterwards. America keeps fighting in the Middle East which is assumed a breeding ground for terror by the U.S. I think we have to solve the problem, and stop the war, so we have to consider the 9.11 incident more seriously.

 The September eleventh attacks exerted various influences. The change in the law can be seen from the influence.  

 

Have you heard USA Patriot Act before? This formal nomenclature is The Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act. As the main point of this law is reinforcement of investigative authority and take immigrant into custody. As a result, it tries to prevent terrorism from the terrorist’s organization beforehand. However freedom of speech and thought/belief were violated on the other hand. At the September eleventh attacks opportunity, there was big movement about the low in Japan. People become sensitive for terrorism and wishes that the same things never happen since the September eleventh attacks.

 

 

 

 

7792-9.11

7792-9-11

       Early in the morning on September 11, 2001, 4 passenger planes were hijacked. This indiscriminate terrorism took a heavy toll of lives.

      World Trade Center was heavy damaged in particular. 2 planes crashed into the buildings, and Twin Tower was completely collapsed. Many people include many fireman and rescue party were damaged by collapsing of buildings and crash of planes. After this historical event, the vacant lot of World Trade Center was called “Ground Zero”. This site was rebuilding and new buildings will complete in 2011. The WTC plan includes “five new skycrapers (1 WTC, Freedom Tower; Towers 2, 3, 4, and 5)” “National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center” “World Trade Center Transportation Hub” “Retail Complex” “Performing Arts Center”. All of the projects will be built incorporating the highest standards of sustainable design and safety systems. Memorial & Museum will consist of two voids on the footprints of the original Twin Towers. Surrounded by a landscaped plaza filled with oak trees, each void will feature rings of cascading water falling into illuminated reflecting pools. The names of the 2,979 who perished in September 11th attacks in New York City,

Washington, DC and Pennsylvania and the February 1993 WTC bombing will be inscribed around the edge of the memorial waterfalls. This monument was crated by architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker and selected from a design competition that drew more than 5,200 entrants from 63 nations. 

        This event has many problems and related a plot by US government. But, I think the most important thing is “victims”. We never forget the people, and we pray their soul may rest in peace and world peace.

             Whatever their political view may be, most of mass media says that the fundamental causes of terrorism must be poverty, lack of education, and crash of religions. Although these views are widely accepted, I think that there might be other factors contributing terrorism.

              Please call your memory of “9.11.” Osama bin laden, the ringleader of this terrorism, seems to be well-educated and be very rich. Besides, some newspapers said that the man who flew the plan into the World Trade Center also seemed to have come from rich families and have been well-educated. I think that the recent terrorists are moved not by poverty and lack of education, but by their feelings of humiliation.

              But international poverty and lack of education promote terrorism too. Terrorists need to have a headquarters somewhere. And the best place is the failed country like Afghanistan. However, I think that simply fighting against these countries’s political and educational system will not decrease the amount of terrorism as we expect.

              In trying to wipe out terrorism, to provide aid and to promote education may be no longer important. If it was true, we would have to think about problems in new direction. For example, money trade may be related to the terrorism.

              One day, I talked with my friend working for a stock company, we talked about this problem. And we finally found that the sudden declaration of the U.S. against Osama bin laden was announced just tow days after of his refusing U.S.$ as a reward.

               In either case, recent terrorism is changing as long as I see. Perhaps, going on our foreign policies not to needlessly upset any terror groups in the world is one of the additional efforts that we should make in fighting against terrorism.

7801-A Conspiracy

2008 年 10 月 15 日 水曜日

   The other day, when I looked for some informations about September 11 attacks, I found some articles. I’m going to introduce one of them. It is about William Rodriguez who survived the affair.

   William Rodriguez was a garbage collector at the North Tower of the World Trade Center for 20 years. He was in the basement of the North Tower when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the building.

   According to Rodriguez, he heard an explosion before the first plane hit the building. He said that from his location in the basement, he heard and felt a massive explosion from below, and that seconds later, he heard another, smaller explosion above, which he attributed to Flight 11 crashing into the tower.

   Now, he suspects the official view about the complete collapse of World Trade Center, and he made speeches in many places to develop the truth of terrorism.

 

   Actually, I had not known there are some doubts like this still read this article. Through reading the articles, I began to think that the United States may hide more important truths. I hope the truth will come to light as soon as possible.

7805-The American War and Terrorism

2008 年 10 月 15 日 水曜日

            At first, as a simple composition, it is a point that USA sowed the seeds of war about al Qaeda of Afghanistan and Iraqi Hussein. It is no more than they pick up the war flower grown by themselves.  In other wards this is American war entirely.  But, they made up the world war by naming it “War on terrorism”. And the world has been rolled up in chaos.  In addition, they planted fears threatened by an enemy at all times all over the world by the creation of a new enemy called the terrorist. In that way they let global military demand spread.

 

            Second, about terrorists, I think that they only fight to protect their country from American ambition.  As for them, USA is an invader, and a destroyer of traditional Islam customs.  With the freedom and the democracy, it is just like ogre executing a master of one country. Please imagine that. One day the foreign government found fault with Japan and they arrested the Japanese prime minister by force and took him to their country.  And they ruled that he was guilty without defense lawyer and have executed him.  Besides, supposing that we found that he was innocent later.  Anyone will be angry.  It is breaking the international law, and it is national disgrace to us.  American egoism lets war be bogged. Then why will they do a terrible act such as the terrorism? The reason is because it cannot beat USA even if they fight fairly from the front.   In addition, there is the characteristic to be remarkably weak for guerrilla attack in which USA proved by Vietnam War.  Of course there is the indiscriminate, radical terrorist partly. It is evil.  However, as for them, it is revenge, and they can say that “re-member Afghanistan” “re-member Iraq”.  It is a same thing as an American saying “re-member 911”. 

 

            Finally, The Japanese must notice  what the essence of this war is.

 And,We should realize that japanese goverenment want to continue to military cooperation for anti-terrorism war is stupidly helpful for aggressive war.

911 Health Problems

 

I tell you about 911 health problem. After the World Trade Center fell down, lower Manhattan was covered in cloud of harmful dust. It causes different respiratory disorders. The cloud is that about two-thirds is powder of cement. The powder stuck to lining of airways, creating searing and burning. In addition to the cement, there was powder of glass. The building’s surface was glass, so the glass was broken and turned into powder. That expanded the damage caused by the cement. These two materials, powder of cement and glass, brought most of the respiratory problems.

Seven years later, many people still suffer from different problems. What comes next? Some doctors worried about the possibility that there may be additional kinds of disease from asbestos. Asbestos was used in the construction of the building. It is not rapid poison, but has the possibility that cancer could develop in the future.

These problems I talked to you are not known to many people. I also did not know this. However, damage of 911 has continued yet.
