3385 World Trade Center seen from movie.

2014 年 11 月 19 日 水曜日

Have you seen a movie called World Trade Center?

World Trade Center is a 2006 film directed by Oliver Stone. It is based on the September 11 attacks at the World Trade Center. Nicolas Cage played a role of a police.

This story begins on September 11, 2001, Port Authority Police officers, John Mcloughlin and Will Jimeno, resucue victims left behind on the upper floor.

John Mcloughlin and Will Jimeno who are actual survivors appeared in the movie. Moreover, the members of the fire company and policeofficers who participated in rescue those days are appeared as extras.

This movie is drawing conscientiously the motion of heart of the person faced death. I have not seen more realistic a movie than this. So realistic, you should see it too.

3384 Summary of Usama bin Ladin

2014 年 11 月 12 日 水曜日

Let me introduce about a “famous” person. His name is Usama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Ladin. He was born on March 10th in 1957. And he dead on May 2nd in 2011. But it was also said that his death was not true.

Most people in this class have heard of the name of this person, I guess. Yes, he was the person who plotted the attack 9.11. He was wanted by FBI.

Being a ringleader, he was also a highly educated person. He studied Economics in the King Abdul Aziz courage.

Today, we meet many misery incidents anywhere. Maybe your friend is involved. We can’t believe person just because “he is clever.” Here is an alarming state of things.

2817 Meaning of “Ground Zero”

2014 年 11 月 12 日 水曜日

Today, let me introduce you the 911. Thirteen years ago, terrorists group named Al Quida attacked the United States. It is one of the largest attacks against the United States, about 3,000 people were killed in the attack. We call this affair 911 because this attack happened on September 11.

Maybe you know the site of 911 has been called “Ground Zero” since that time. By the way, do you know what about the meaning of “Ground Zero”? I’m learned that only the site of 911 came to be called like that. I checked what this phrase means.

I learned that the center of attacks in the war time or the like is called Ground Zero, such as the WT in NY City or Hiroshima or the Fukushima Nuclear Plants. And it is use for the disaster area like a quake or infectious diseases.

Sadly, many places are called “Ground Zero”. I hope that there will be no place called like that from now on.

3381 Another Story of 9.11

2014 年 11 月 12 日 水曜日

In the world there are some special days. Many people were killed by the terror group, which is called “Al-Qaeda” on September 11, 2001. The number of victims is about three thousand. The terror happened in the USA. And the government of the USA decided to declare the war in retaliation for terrorism.

But some claim that this incident may have been performed by the USA. The terror is very large in scale and ingenious. Some people think the USA performed terrorism to play the war. If it is true, many people will not forgive the USA. Indeed the USA made war against Afghanistan and Iraqi.

Some people think the USA is a victim. Other people think the USA is a wrongdoer. The scariest thing is that few people know the truth.

 

3390 The Aftereffect 9-11 Triggered

2014 年 11 月 12 日 水曜日

Thirteen years have passed since the 9-11 terrorist attacks. However, a serious problem such as discrimination and prejudice against followers of Islam in America still remains.

Four days after 9-11, a first Islam was murdered. With that as a start Islamophobia began to spread across America. Needless to say, not all Americans have the hostility against Islam, but some made a claim in a radical and offensive way. For example, “Keep Islam out of America !”. Due to this, many followers of Islam came to be forced to move out, hiding their identities there.

In order to transcend this aftereffect, we should keep arguing about way to coexist with the diverse races especially in the multi-national nations like America.

3387 Michael Moore’s Statement

2014 年 11 月 11 日 火曜日

I’m going to talk about Fahrenheit 911.  It’s the movie produced by Michael Moore.  It criticizes George W. Bush.

For example, the movie depicts that former president won the election thanks to strong connections in the first place.  And when 911 broke out, Bush was at an elementary school and didn’t take action.  Moreover, the administration had a relationship to Usāma bin  Lādin.  And Bush put up a good reason that Iraq had been weapons of mass destruction, and orderd U.S army to attack.

Someone might feel Michael Moore’s criticism too strong.  But for Moore, we would be tricked by a government.  If you see this movie, you can know the terror of power.

0428 The September Eleven Attacks

2014 年 11 月 5 日 水曜日

Though there are some conspiracy theories about 9.11, let me introduce you one of them. One is introduced in a movie on 9.11 and regarded as the most likely conspiracy theory. At the time the U.S needed to wage war in order to develop the war industry. According to the conspiracy theory, the U.S government took up an idea that Osama bin laden was to be a ringleader and caused a terror. There are two things that make it believable. The first is that the terror is too enormous and too shrew to be caused by terrorists of a foreign country. The second is that there is a doubt that only two planes can attacked a buildings and make it collapse. Because there is such spectacles, now the theory is regarded as the most likely theory.

3393-The Feeling Of Reprisals

2014 年 11 月 5 日 水曜日

I’m honored to present 9.11. Let me introduce the feeling of reprisals. If you were an American citizen, what would you feel about 9.11? Would you feel animus against terrorist? It is natural that American citizens showed anger and indignation. I would feel the same. However, revenges cause nothing but negative cycle.

Sep. 11, 2001, America was attacked and 3,000 people were killed by terrorist. I can’t imagine what the victim’s family are going through. American citizens increased their anger against Al-Qaeda, Islam. Mass media agitated civil emotion, citizens advocated punishment to Islam, especially principal offender, Usama Bin Ladin. Then Iraq War outbroke in 2003. The conflict between America and Iraq still continues.

The feeling of revenge caused patriotic spirit. Therefore, they began the war. It goes without saying that terrorism drove U.S. citizens to war. However, we mustn’t forget that it is dependent on the consequence which state is right.

3362 Experience the American Way of Thinking from 9.11

Experience the American Way of Thinking from 9.11

 

On September 11, 2001, the awful incident happened. The Islamic terrorists made attacks the United State of America.

Have you been to the site of World Trade Center? In this summer, I visited there. There is a huge waterfall, where the flowers are laid and the names of victims are carved. To my surprise, the new building is 1776 feet high, which is taking the US independence year. I can’t understand why the Americans constructed the very high building in the site of 9.11. A guide said, “American don’t want to give away the terrorism, but want to defeat it. This is their way of thinking.”

When visiting the site of world trade center, you can feel keenly fear of terrorism and the American ways of thinking.

 

3372 Victims of 9/11

2014 年 11 月 5 日 水曜日

Do you think this incident was over? On September 11, 2001, about 30 million people were killed because of terrorism. Not only bereaved families but also rescue workers are still suffering from various different diseases.

The building named WTC had harmful materials such as the asbestos. These dusts splashed around them at the same time as it collapsed. Rescue workers breathing there are more likely to develop cancer and respiratory disease than ordinary people. Most of them are still fighting against these diseases. Some of them are also suffering from PTSD because of seeing horrible scenes.

They are not unrivalled heroes, but ordinary persons who may lose hope in their own life. In order to honor them, American government should continue to give relief to them.
