War and Terrorism in XXI century
Write what you think.
Terrorism in the 21st century is in insult to the intelligence ofš everyone.šI don't understand how people
that have repeadedly come together as a whole nation can throw away all the values that they have worked
for and held dear. How can we discriminate against people for the color of their skin, or the language they
speak, or because of what they believe in?š It seems as if the moral standards of the world are too high
for some people- those who use predudice as a weapon agains others; to cover up their own short-commings.
Someone once said that WW1 would be the war to end all wars and they spoke fom the heart. Yet even today it
seems that most conversations are still happening at gunpoint. Terrorism has shattered the peace that we
have all become accustomed to,šand in Afghanistan a new chapter unfolds as people continually are thrown
around and endangered in the place that should be their haven. Wars to tear people apart and predudice to
Forever- these are the things that our society is built upon. Untill we can appreciate uniqueness or
untill we can stop letting violence solve everything, we will never be able to be the people we were meant
to be and there will never be a war to end all wars.

This issue is very big, i think in a way the USA had this coming to them by making the soliders in Afganistan what they
are, then abandoning them in the war against Russia.
Everyone knew Bin Ladin had declared war against all Americans, they knew that he had the money, the resources, the power.
it was just a matter of time before they struck. Noone was expecting it and from a strategic move it was very well planned
out. Now its very scary the thought of war close to home. All the changes that have been undergone in just the past few months.
My step grandma is a flight attendant, and on September 11 we didn't know where she was, or if she was hurt.
I do hope these issues in the middle east are solved soon.

I belive terrorism in the 21st century is a horrible thing. How can we accept the fact that humans have
been on earth for 4 million years and still there is clashing between cultures, skin, color, gender, age,
relgion and race. If we still have terrorism in the 21st century then we have a˙serious problem. The way
the events of September 11th took place is even more disgusting, using innocent passanger littered
planes, to crash into two buildings full of innocent people is very sad. If wars contiue on earth then we
all should be very aware of the fact that, stupid choices based on past events or the actions of one, a
few, or some people will bring our earth to a time of great pain to the innocents, children, elders and
everyone even thoese blamed for the actions. Terrorism is wrong and should not exsist in the 21st century.

A year ago we came to the 21 century and our life now become more and more dangerous. The last group of incidents took place in USA. The first incident was the explosion of Twin Towers. Then a dangerous disease began.

Near a year ago our life was quite normal.
Now situation changed a lot. In present time we're all afraid of different terracts because of the awful incident in the USA, when Twin Towers exploded.
Also now there is another dangerous disease.

I think that people who are terrorists and who did such things as blew up a building of world trade center and crashed the airplanes are really cruel people who have no soul. I think that Americans did the write thing (declared the war against terrorists) and I'm glad that the rest countries agreed to help America in the war. But I think that Americans have to be more careful in their actions and don't kill innocent people.

The end of the 20th century: It is full of things of this kind. Terrorism is a new kind of war. Fifty years ago there were tanks and cannons, but now the new weapons are bombs in civil houses, kidnapping, murders. It is awfully.
