Transcript of Similarities and Differences Between the Attack on Pearl Har

Similarities and Differences Between the Attack on Pearl Harbor and the disaster day 9/11.
Comparing the two events
In both events thousands of lives were lost. In the attack on Pearl Harbor 2,400 people died within a matter of hours. In the attack on 9/11 3,000 people died. The people that died were all innocent. 400 officers were killed in the attack of 9/11. Both of these events left thousands dead.
Comparing the two events
Both events were "sneak attacks". The 9/11 and the attack on Pearl Harbor were both surprises to the nation. Everybody was trifled by the sudden attacks that happened.
Comparing the two events
Both events happened because of FOREIGN attackers. They both were attacked by people from another country. The attackers used planes in both events to attack American soil. This caused frustrations in America in both of these events. The foreign attackers caused anger and turmoil to arise in America.
Both events were a disaster. In these events innocent lives were taken. Thousands were killed by foreign attackers that entered our country. These events were very important and what happened caused innocent lives to be taken.
The Differences
In the attack on Pearl Harbor the foreign attackers were Japanese. On the attack of 9/11 Islamic terrorists attacked the World Trade Center. The attack on Pearl Harbor was to hope to eliminate the fleet of ships so Japan can expand.
In the attack of 9/11 the attack was more symbolical. The World Trade Center was a symbol of the U.S. free-market economy. It was not tactical. The Pearl Harbor attack was tactical though. The Japanese planned to attack the fleet of ships to advance in their plans.
In the terrible attack of 9/11 the World Trade Center was attacked by Islamic terrorists. These terrorists supposedly were financed by Osama Bin Laden's terrorist organization. In the attack of Pearl Harbor, America was attacked by the Japanese. The Japanese were told to start this by Yamamoto, a commander of the Japanese fleet.
The Pearl Harbor attack by the Japanese was a military attack on a military target. The attack on the World Trade Center was a civilian aircraft against a civilian target.
The targets were different for the two. In 9/11 the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the White House were targeted. If it wasn't for the people on the hijacked plane to steer the plane away, the White House would have been struck. The Pearl Harbor attack was turned to the U.S. navy ships. The Japanese succeeded in sinking five out of eight ships in a fleet.
Both of these attacks were tragic and left the nation shocked. Many people died in the historic attacks and the attacks were deadly. Pearl Harbor and the 9/11 attacks were left in history for everyone to remember.
