bomb attack

Postby daizy » Wed Nov 26, 2003 5:47 am

This is an interesting subject. Anyway being a girl, I do not really like to talk about this much. I myself like to talk about daily life stories.
I hate bomb attack, and people who are only interested in planting bomb.

I don't understand the reason of planting a bomb in public places. In my opinion the authoruties don't care about civilians anyway. In fact , this kind of terror horrifies the population and make the authorities say their speech which we are tired of listening. Needless to say I am completely against WAR, TERRORISM or any kind of violence.

Biggest bomb attacks in history: Hiroshima & Nagasaki

The biggest bomb attacks of all time were against civilian (ie non-military) targets. They were the atomic bombs dropped by the United States of America on Japan in 1945.

On August 6, 1945, the city of Hiroshima was the target of the first atomic bomb used against a civilian population in history. Over 100,000 people were killed in that attack, and many more wounded. Three days later, the United States of America dropped another atomic bomb over the city of Nagasaki. In total, about a quarter of a million people were killed by the two bombs.

The united States of America justified these attacks against civilian targets as a way of ending the war quickly and saving American lives. It seems, therefore, that there can be justification for attacks against non-military targets.

Footnote: Atomic bombs are "Weapons of Mass Destruction". They have never been used against civilians by any other country or organisation, either before or since.

There is no excuse for such an action

I am from Turkey and as everybody knows,we are having violent attacks very frequently.I believe there is no justification for such a violent action.Innocent people die because of silly reasons.As a teacher,I really feel sorry for the coming generation.Unless these stupid wars end,they will unfortunately have terrible days and nobody has the right to do such a thing.I HATE WAR!

We need to thing about how importan for us is the world "Peace", some times we forget the love and the comprension with other people, just for money, or power, but we have responsability for the future of the children and for the integrity of the word, PLEASE!!! don't be so cruel with the humans, we have future if we thing more to live in peace.

i dont know why they've to put bomb in public places wherein some civilians would get hurt. Until now im still thinking on why they have to do that if we could only talk and solve the problem in a nice way without hurting other people. There's nothing we can do about them because i think that bombers are sent by the evils. One thing i am really sure we could help them, "pray and ask for PEACE!!!"

What do you think bomb attacks achieve?

English checker:-
bomb: a container of explosive or incendiary material that explodes and causes serious damage
achieve: to bring about, to accomplish
plant a bomb: to place a bomb in a certain position ready to explode
justification: good reason, good excuse
