We as a Nation must always be in a state of readiness of our armed forces for military action against terrorism or military attack. On that dreadful morning of December 7, 1941, was a surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States Naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The Battle Ship USS Arizona suffered the greatest loss- over 1500 sailors perished.
The attack was intended as a preventive action in order to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from interfering with military actions the Empire of Japan was planning in Southeast Asia against overseas Territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and the United States. September 11, 2001 was one of the deadliest attack by a Terrorist group within American soil. A lot of people died in the attacks, the death toll ended at 2,996 which included the hijackers. Many Americans were wounded and hundreds of bodies were never recovered and remained unidentified.
On that fateful day, 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial planes with the intention of crashing the planes and use them as bombs (reminiscent of the kamikaze suicide pilots of the Second World War). Two of the planes were intentionally rammed into the World Trade Center twin Towers reducing the structures to rubble within two hours, raining debris and damaging other buildings in the area.
The third, was directed to the Pentagon, and was crashed there. And the fourth, crashed into a field apparently because some of the crew and passengers fought against the hijackers. There were no survivors from all the crashes. The author Therlee Gipson
