War has been a varying topic for a long time throughout history. People that were put in charge of their country have always had different views for centuries of time. People in general have had their say, in the most part, on the decision of a war and some part in the outcome.

This style was helpful if you were to have a larger army, but caused significant casualties. The art of terrorism was a very new part of war when it was introduced on September 11, 2001. The Al-Qaeda is a terrorists group that was led by Osama Bin…
