Terrorism, the cowardly demon, has haunted Americans as well as the world for years. This demon has had its toll at recognized sporting events. It has torn apart government buildings. It has punctured military vessels. But most of all, it has taken the lives of Americans, of loved ones, of humans. Unfortunately nothing too significant has happened to stop this siege of terror on earth. The events of September 11, 2001, have caused and shall cause these actions to be changed. Therefore, the United States of America, with the support of the world, should contrive a plan and seize the opportunity given by making this inhumane force extinct. In this plan, money should be spent, protection should increase, and terrorism should be wiped off the face of this earth.
Today, terrorism is usually considered acts of groups. It is not always the case. Terrorists do not have to work in groups or with partners. There have been many incidents where men and women work alone to get their horrible messages across. One example of a terrorist working alone is the awful event at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996. Spectators and athletes had gathered together to perform and to observe. It was supposed to be an enjoyable, awing experience for the crowd. This act was not a catastrophe, but it was still an act of terror. A pipe bomb thrown into a trashcan caused the explosion. Two people were killed while others were injured. Eric Robert Rudolph, one of the ten most wanted fugitives in the world, is the man behind this act. “A large manhunt with tracking dogs and helicopters failed to find Rudolph,” and now he has a $1,000,000 bounty on his head. He is still yet to be found.
An act of terror that was caused be a group would be the two United States embassy bombings on August 7, 1998. One bombing was in Kenya while the other occurred in Tanzania, but they happened almost simultaneously.
