Stopping Terrorism

We need to put an end to Terrorism in the U.S.

Dear future president,

Did you know that around 3,141 innocent people died from terrorist attacks from the years 2000-2014? According to, 2,977 people died from the September 11th terrorist attacks other known as 9/11. But that’s not it, terrorist attacks are still happening. According to Johnston's archive, in 2016, 29 people were injured in New York City when a terrorist attack accorded. According to, johnston's archive, On september 17th, 2016 there was a bombing on street in Manhattan.

We need to stop terrorists attacks in the United States of America.

Not only are terrorist groups attacking the U.S., but after they attack it could take long to find them. Cs monitor States that It took roughly 10 years to find Osama bin Laden. Osama bin Laden was the head of Al-qaeda. If it took 10 years to find him, it could take as long to find anyone else. Osma could have caused other attacks while they were looking for him and so can anyone else.

The 9/11 attacks and boston attacks ared two of the most famous attacks. The author of johnston's archive states that The boston bombing was caused by terrorist 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev and 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. This attack killed 3 people and injured approximately 264 people. If we continue to not take this seriously and do something about it these attacks can get more serious and kill more people.

According to, Cns news, Of the syrians who arrived to the U.S. in july, 99% were sunnis, .19% were christians and .72% were other muslims. According to National post, ¨The Western notion of Shia being the dangerous iteration shifted through fundamentalist Sunni groups such as the Taliban, al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also referred to as ISIS)¨

99% of the syrians coming into our countries are Sunnis which are the race in terrorist groups such as al qaeda whoś leader was the cause of 9/11, Taliban which according to bbc,

The Taliban in Afghanistan were accused of providing a sanctuary to Osama Bin Laden and the al-Qaeda movement who were blamed for the attacks. Soon after 9/11 the Taliban were driven from power in Afghanistan by a US-led coalition, although their leader Mullah Mohammad Omar was not captured¨, and ISIS who we all know have caused some very terrible attacks.

I believe that we need to stop letting syrians into our country because the people that are fleeing from syrians and coming to the U.S. are the main cause of the terrorist attacks, like i said up above. Now that you've read my article, reconsider taking them more

seriously because you never know what they will do next. We need to stop terrorism and make america great again.
