The attack on 9/11 and Pearl Harbor By: Jesus Hernandez
What Was The 9/11 Attack ? • The September 11 attacks (often referred to as September 11th or 9/11) were a series of coordinated suicide attacks by Al-queda upon the United States on September 11, 2001. • On that morning, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger jet airlines • The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the world trade center in New York city
How Many People Died IN 9/11 • Nearly 3,000 victims and the 19 hijackers died in the attacks • According to the New York State Health Department, 836 responders, including firefighters and police personnel, have died as of June 2009 • People were jumping out of the buildings
What Was The Pearl Harbor Attack • The attacks on pearl harbor from the Japanese naval force were a surprise to the united states. • It happened at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on the morning of December 7, 1941. • The next day the United States declared war on Japan.
How Many People Died In pearl Harbor • 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed, 2,402 personnel were killed and 1,282 were wounded. • Japanese losses were light, with 29 aircraft and five midget submarines lost, and 65 servicemen killed or wounded.
How did The U.S Respond To 9/11 • The United States responded to the attacks by launching the War on Terror: it invaded Afghanistan to depose the Taliban, who had harbored al-Qaeda terrorists.
What Did The U.S Do To The Japanese • Since they declared war on Japan which started WW2 the United States bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki which caused a lot of damage to both cities. • Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki.
Who Planned 9/11 • Osama bin laden was the one who planned the whole 9 11 attack and his terrorist group the al-Qaeda did too and the al-Qaida did the hijacking. • There was 19 hijackers all of them committed suicide killing themselves and other innocent people.
Who Planned Pearl Harbor • Japanese refer to their emperors by the emperor's renal name rather than by his given name. Thus Emperor Hirohito is known as the "Showa" emperor after the name of his reign • He was the one who sent his naval force to bomb Pearl Harbor.
What Was Used In the Attack Of 9/11 • The planes that were hijacked to attack the twin towers had bombs that the Al-Qaeda put on the planes.
What Was Used In the Attack Of Pearl Harbor • In Pearl Harbor the Japanese also used airplanes with bombs and guns they used them to sink the ships as well as kill people.
Racism Of 9/11 • I am of East Indian descent, from Trinidad and Tobago (fourth generation). At the time of 9/11 I lived in New Jersey and commuted to NYC to work on First Avenue and Houston. • After 9/11 I was very nervous about going into the City, as nervous as everyone else. I was particularly affected by the fear of leaving my home that enveloped me on a daily basis. • You see, although I come from a country in the Caribbean, Americans thought I was Iraqi, Pakistani, you name it.
Racism Of Pearl Harbor • The U.S made camps for Japanese or Asian people so they don’t cause harm to the city of Hawaii. Despite the fact that most people who were Japanese were against their own country.
Conclusion • I think that both attacks were awful and they were both racist related so I think what Afghanistan and Japan got they deserved don’t you?
