Bomb Attacks. What do they achieve?

Postby TalkingPoint » Fri Nov 21, 2003 12:54 pm

What do bomb attacks achieve? People sometimes plant bombs in non-military targets (airports, banks, buses...) for political reasons. What justification can be given for such attacks?

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

It's really a tragedy that some people always think force can solve any problem.

It shows to me that those people are so desparate or determined to kill the "enemy" that they sacrifice their own lives as well. Maybe if world leaders could look for the root of the problem, ie, poverty, racism, etc. and try to solve them., maybe then bomb attacks will stop. In my opinion, the war in Iraq hasn't stopped, it has just opened new "fronts" in other parts of the world, where next? Sincerely, costadina :!: ][/b]
I think, war is a bad thing to do.

Clean war doesn't exist and innocent people will continue to died. Ahmed

By planting abomb to certain place does not help terorist archice their aims in long term. Many Innocient people had always been ruined by that cruel attacks in the past without knowing what they were murrdered.

bombing

bombing can assist planters in multiple capacities. A suicidal bomber in Kashmir helps his fellows by burning to ashes an indian headquarter, a bus has a bomb planted in it to cause terrorism and a prime minister is killed by bombing. so bombing is taking place from war to the parliamentary levels.
terrorism is the weapon of weak!! but can a poor and meek afford to buy a bomb?? when UNO has its headquarters in Washington why is the testing of MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) taking place in Florida fields of the same country??
these are the biased and dual standards of our international bureaucracies which believes in the divide and rule policy. now the point is how to divide.....how to make two humans descendants of same biological hierarchies enemies of each other????
the answer is 'JUST BOMB THE BROTHERHOOD OUT BY BOMBING THE LOVED ONES OF ONE AND CASTE THE CRIME ON ANOTHER'!

IN A NAME OF GOD MOST MERCYFUL MOST POWERFUL

I THINK THAT THIS SUBJECT IS RIGHT THING TO DISCUSS,WHERE PEOPLE CAN EXPLAIN HIS THOUGHT.

ACCORDING TO THIS TOPIC I THINK THAT THIS IS A TERRIBLE THING TO DO ,WHERE PEOPLE CAN FIND DEATH AS A RESULTS OF SOME PEOPLE'S INTERESTS.
BUT WHAT I WANT TO SAY IS THAT HOW MAN CAN DO DO IT OR IS THERE ANY REASON WHY MAN IS DOING SUCH THINGS
I THINK THESE DAYS ONLY POOR MAN ARE DOING THESE ATTACKS I MEAN ILLNESS PEOLE,NOT POVERTY.

IN MY OPINION THE BEST SOLUTION TO STOP THESE ATTACKS ARE RELIGION LESSONS

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.

from Turkey

There is no excuse for such an action

Postby from Turkey » Fri Nov 28, 2003 9:03 am

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!

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!!!"
