468 words - 2 pages

Over the past Century, terrorism has evolved from random killings to massive plans for terrorist groups. From the Trade Center bombing, to the September 11th attack in 2002, the United States had endured more than enough of its share of terrorism, and to this day continues to suffer.The first real wake-up call occurred on February 26, 1993.

Due to the strength of the tower, and the lack of funding for a more powerful bomb, the World Trade Center did not collapse, but only left the world wondering what the country would do to protect itself from its new threat.In April 1995 a truck bomb exploded on the outskirts of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, killing 168 people and injuring 800, making it the deadliest terrorist attack in United States history. The attack was caused as a direct result of a truck bomb planted by Timothy McVeigh. His initial plans were to "wake up America" to the danger of the government, and avenge the deaths of the Branch Davidians, whom he believed were murdered by agents of the federal government. Federal agents arrested him, and Terry L. Nichols for the crime. Both McVeigh and Nichols identified with the "patriot movement," a loose alliance of extremist groups advocating resistance to national laws and political institutions. In June 1997, McVeigh was found guilty of murder in connection with the bombing and sentenced to death. Later in the year, Nichols was convicted of the less severe charges of manslaughter and conspiracy, and he was sentenced to life in prison in June 1998.Terrorists from other parts of the world, especially the Middle East, continue to set off bombs and commit other crimes.
