What is terrorism In the past years we have all experienced or heard about some sort of attack that has made a huge impact on us A few years ago 911 caught us by surprise and had an overwhelming effect on us This time powerful figures were targeted such as the World Trade Center which symbolizes Americas influential economy the Pentagon which represents Americas military power and if it were not for the courageous passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 the White House would have been another target There have been other attacks such as these some of which have also taken place on an airplane like the Egyptair Flight 648 that was heading to Cairo from Athens on November 23 1985 Instead the hijacking took place in Valletta Malta The group responsible for this attack was part of the Abu-Nidal Organization Other attacks have targeted US Embassies in foreign countries such as Kenya and Tanzania A little point being put across here is how a number of attacks have made symbols of US polity and sometimes economy such as the attacks on the World Trade Center a target We all know that the United States is the land of opportunity to some people this has been an advantage and to others a threat These attacks on the US especially from foreign civilians have been concluded as being terrorist attacks I am not saying that terrorist attacks only occur in the US or have to do with anything relating to the US but instead Im pointing out that since these attacks had to do with politics they might be considered terrorist attacks There have been attacks in other countries that had nothing to do with the US that have also been believed to be terrorist attacks Terrorist attacks or terrorism is when someone or a group of people try to obtain a political social or religious objective by way of attempting to intimidate another group
