This disparity has caused some to look for a dues ex machina to explicate what otherwise seems unexplainable. This paper will also attempt to resolve the unexplainable by discussing some of the issues that are considered to have caused the 9/11 attacks on America.
Some of the issues include radicalization caused by Afghan jihad, influence of Islamic texts, stagnation and decline in the Middle East, as well as the “humiliation” of the Islamic people and the U.S. international policies in the Middle East and particularly its support of Israel (Bergen 1). 9/11 was the crop of Bin Laden’s blemished strategic thinking.

Cause is what makes something happen; effect is what happens because of the cause. Nearly all of the science work and nature’s studies occur in pair of cause and effect. “If you prove the cause, you at once prove the effect; and conversely nothing can exist without its cause.”(Aristotle and Great Books of the Western World, 1952).Global warming is also cause and effect subject.
