social goals Ireland For decades the Irish Republican Army engaged
in terrorist attacks against Britain because it opposed British contorl of northern Ireland. By 2001, however, the british and the IRA were peacefully
negotiating for the autonomy for northern Ireland Both Germany and Italy have suffered terrorist attacks by extreme left-wing and right-wing domestic groups.
In general, left-wing groups oppose capitalism, and right-wing groups support capitalism and oppose government regulation. In 2000, more terrorist attacks occurred in Latin America than in any other region of the world Terrorist activity was particularly heavy in colombia, a country where powerful narcotics organizations have frequently turned to violence. 9/11- 19 arab terrorists hijacted four airplanes from East coast airports.
the first plane crashed into the upper floors of the north tower of the world trade center
20 minutes later, the second plane crashed into the second tower
the third plane rammed into the southwest side of the pentagon in arlington, virginia, less than an hour after the attack on the twin towers
the passangers in the fouth plane prevented it from hitting the white house, which seemed to be it's destination Nine buildings in New york city's financial district completely or partially collapsed Antiterrorism law- on october 26, 2001, president bush signed into law an antiterrorism bill. the law allowed the government to:

The anthrax threat- not long after september 11th, terrorism struck
america again, but in a different form. letters containing spores of a bacterium that causes the disease anthrax were sent to persons in the news media and to members of congress in washington, d.c. if anthrax in inhailed it becomes deadly, five people who came in contact with the letters died. this became a huge scare of the threat of the other biological or chemical weapons, such as the smallpox virus or the nerve gas sarin.
