fighters and Al-Qaeda, I would not call them freedom fighters. I do not believe that they are inflicting harm to other countries just because they are trying to fight for a good cause. I think that they are just fighting to inflict harm and fear on countries, and they are just looking to kill. Conclusion Overall, I believe that Al-Qaeda is a very violent terrorist group, and has a lot of insight how to work the justice system. They know what happens when you get incarcerated, they know how to evade captivity and how to escape. They are very skilled in what they do, and know how to do it very discreetly. I do not believe that Al-Qaeda is done yet, even if they haven’t attacked for a few years. I believe that they are planning something bigger than 9/11, and is something so discreet that not even our intelligence agents are going to be able to see it coming. Al-Qaeda’s group size may have gone down immensely, but that still has not stopped them. We talked about their goals, how they get their finances, their preferred method of attacks, and ideology. Being able to see some of the background information on Al-Qaeda has given me the ability to have a different perspective on them, but I still don’t have any sympathy for them if they were to ever get reprimanded. They deserve to all die because they know what they are doing is very wrong, and very inhumane and very evil. A lot of lives have been lost because of Al-Qaeda, and no amount of jail time or fines can ever replace that many lives. Out of all their terrorist attacks, it is estimated they have killed 6,011 innocent people and injured 4 times that amount. That’s not what a freedom fighter does, that’s a terrorist. Works Cited

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
