9/11 changed everything
2001. Everything has changed.
Stories about why I have been told countless times since then
Every time is as chilling as the last one. At 8:46 a. m.
One of the four hijacked commercial planes hit the north tower of Manhattan\'s World Trade Center. At 9:03 a. m.
The second plane hit the South Tower.
Then the third hit the west side of the Pentagon in Washington, and the fourth hit a field in Pennsylvania.
Nearly 3,000 people have been killed in the deadliest terrorist attack on North American soil.
Since then, the daily life and daily contacts of Canadians and Americans, people around the world have always been changed by a scholar who calls it similar to the historical \"game changer\" of the Pearl Harbor attack.
James Raker, author and professor of politics at the University of York, said the 9/11 attacks have changed the way we travel, the way we govern, and the way we view, experience and respond to terrorist threats.
He said that what 9/11 people have done is to end the Soviet Union\'s Communist disintegration and the short-lived \"borderless world\" that emerged after the end of the Cold War \".
\"What 9/11 does is close the door to the idea,\" Laxer said . \".
\"What it does is to say that the country exists.
The borderless world is a short-lived myth that ends at 9/11.
Laxer said how terrorism changed the attack and became a \"huge fuse\" to create the terrorist threat that is seen today, he explained, 9/11 the terrorists achieved a key goal of getting their enemies involved in the conflict.
\"What it does is anger the United States. S.
In the past 15 years, the invasion of Afghanistan has led to continued fighting against the Taliban and their successors, and of course, it was later decided to invade Iraq, \"he said.
After 9/11, al-
Al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden became faces of terrorism.
But Laxer said immediate and long-term retaliation from Western countries, as well as unrest from the Arab Spring and the Middle East government, led to new terrorist groups such as the Islamic State.
Since 9/11 years, terms such as jihad, activism and homeland security have become ubiquitous in media coverage of terrorist acts in North America and around the world.
Historian and professor Arne Kislenko of the University of Toronto said: \"There is no doubt . . . . . . It has had some profound impact on our organization, on our legislative and political responses, and on our imagination.
\"Now, we think terrorism is synonymous with Islam in the Middle East.
It\'s not always true, but we came up with a
We come up with the end of the world
It\'s usually Islamic. Middle-
Terrorism in the East
More than a year after the 9/11 incident, the Canadian government established the Canadian Air Transport Security Agency (CATSA)
A central unit overseeing the national airport security checkpoint. “Before (9/11)
Inspections of passengers and their belongings are more dispersed, and individual airports and airlines are responsible for inspections of passengers . . . . . . Transport Canada is overseeing the process, said CATSA spokesman Mathieu Laroque.
\"With 9/11, the government has created CATSA as a national agency to oversee the entire screening operation . . . . . . It is managed at the national level for better coherence and coordination.
\"Before 9/11, passengers were still passing through X-
Machine and step through metal detector.
However, the enhancement is 9/11.
It often takes time.
Air passengers experience safety process today.
Now, passengers find themselves taking the belt and the outside subject to the scanner.
In some cases, especially on flights to the United States. S.
Laroque noted that passengers must also take off their shoes.
Blades and sharp objects are generally not allowedon bags.
Removal and individual scanning of carry-on items over the years
Liquid and aerosol enter the mixture.
A long time ago, the children could visit the pilot in the cockpit during the flight.
Laxer says these huge changes in the way people fly also reflect new realities on the ground.
\"The biggest impact is security around the world.
\"No matter where you go, you\'re going through security now,\" he said . \".
The legislative responsibility of Canada is after 9/11. like the U. S.
But not hawkish.
Significant legislative adjustments have been made in efforts to address new terrorist threats and strengthen vulnerability.
\"It puts the idea of terrorism and the reality of terrorism at the forefront,\" Kislenko said . \" He cited the immediate \"restructuring\" of Canadian intelligence \"--
Communities gathered after the attack.
Although terrorism is \"as old as prostitution and bread making,\" Kislenko said, 9/11 terrorism triggered a \"panic\" in Canada\'s new legislation:-
The Act on terrorism, the Public Security Act, the Act on combating terrorism, etc.
Now, Kislenko\'s lecture includes stories from a long time ago.
\"I told my students: Can you imagine where to go now without a security check?
Can you imagine crossing the border without a passport? Said Kislenko.
\"Even if we were computerized, basic security protocols became more complex and necessary.
We built an extraordinary
A complex of security and intelligence.
