Short Essay on War and Terror
The United States is known as a Super Power in the world today for two particular reasons and they are one, the outcome of World War II and two, how the President at that time, Franklin Delano Roosevelt handled conflicts at home as well as conflicts overseas. During that time the United States was going through some challenges dealing with the Great Depression and the difficulties of Germany beginning to start conflicts in Europe where there was nothing being done about it. World War II was a situation America had stayed out of for about three years, but when the U.S. finally did get involved the balance was then tipped in the favor of the allies due...

War culture, while not heavily discussed in media or amongst politics today, is hiding right under our noses—and thriving. War culture has evolved so rapidly and widely it has managed to have a profound effect on everyday life influencing media, pop culture and even constitutional crises due in large part to the culture of fear it creates. In recent times war has been used as a way to secure foreign oil and fulfill other political agendas that don’t necessarily benefit the majority of our nation. War, once considered a last resort, is now a go to tactic. It has become so commonplace it’s quietly become a big part of our lives that we never really notice. War culture is almost subtle, one...

One who wins must tell the story. Everyone who has won wars, or accomplishes mission, etc. always seems to tell the story. In a way where the teller most likely did not finish telling the truth about the story and or lied about their way on the journey. This is where the quote by Anatole France helps you understand the quote.” We have never heard of the devil’s side of the story. God wrote the entire book”.
First of all, after looking at the quotation you can clearly say the meaning of the quote is winner’s get to tell the story and losers get to hear the winner’s side of the story. The first example is Iraq going head to head with the...

ISIS is a terrorist group led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It began as the Iraqi chapter of Al Qaeda. But the two groups always had disagreements, and ISIS broke away in 2014. Now ISIS and Al Qaeda compete for influence and recruits.
In 2011, a civil war broke out in Syria in response to efforts to overthrow dictator Bashar al-Assad. ISIS quickly took advantage of the chaos. The group now controls a vast territory in Syria and Iraq. They’ve become one of the largest, most successful, and most violent groups operating in Syria and Iraq. They execute prisoners of war, enslave minorities.
ISIS funds itself by selling oil, extracting taxes, and extortion. Until...

Many books, articles, or even essays that are read throughout one’s life, can at times be slightly unclear about what precisely the main idea is or what the authors true purpose is for writing that text.

These rhetorical strategies are particularly important because they help with the clarity of complex ideas and assist the writer in getting their point across.

Unifying issues among progressive Democrats include opposition to the War in Iraq, opposition to economic liberalism and social conservatism, opposition to all corporate influence in government, support for universal health care or single-payer health care, revitalization of the national infrastructure and steering the Democratic Party in the direction of being a more forceful party.

The Senate Committee On Foreign Relations voted on Wednesday to give President Barack Obama the power to a launch a limited military attack to punish Syria for using chemical weapons.
The vote was 10-7. It marked the first time in more than a decade — since a 2002 resolution that preceded the Iraq war — that members of Congress have voted to authorized military action.

Throughout the 20th century in Afghanistan, many violent and nonviolent Islamist Movements have emerged. Some of the more violent movements include the Taliban, al-Qa’ida, and the Islamic State. The Taliban originated during the Soviet, US, and Saudi Arabian supported civil war in Afghanistan from the Pakistani-trained, US sponsored mujahidin. This civil war, the bombing at Kabul, and the many massacres of civilians contributed to the emergence of the group. The US got involved in the civil war to help out allies, in which led to a bundle of hatred for the US by the Taliban. The ideology of the Taliban is an innovative form of shari’a, which combines Pashtun tribal...

Pressure groups play an important part in the current political system in that it is these organisations who attempt to influence public opinion and shape policy in relation to a particular issue. Pressure groups are associations that may be formal or informal whose purpose is to further the interests of a specific section of society or to promote a certain cause. Democracy is the idea that the people’s views are represented. There has been the argument of whether pressure groups enhance or do not enhance democracy in a country.
Pressure groups can be seen as being undemocratic since pressure groups are unelected and unrepresentative. This can be seen in the way in which the leaders or...

Women at War
Women have faced multiple struggles to gain equality. When it comes to women trying to fight for our rights in the country, the struggle is even tougher. Throughout history, women being involved in the military seemed to be more of a burden than anything. Even though women can help with military readiness, social change throughout the military and get the career advancement they have been dreaming of for so long, they have had a hard time convincing others differently. Others would see women being a part of the military as a risk factor, as they are not as physically strong as men or that women are to compassionate compared to men. Even with the extra stress from maternal and...

Most Americans are probably not aware that European’s are concerned with the U.S. Presidential elections. After all, Europeans will not have a vote coming this November. Numerous poles of different European citizens show an overwhelming support for the current president, Barrack Obama, over his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney. "If Europeans could vote in November's election, 75% would vote for Obama while only 8% would vote for Romney" (World views). While many ideas and opinions are given for the overwhelming support of President Obama it is mostly due to cultural, historical, and foreign policy views of European.
The US Democratic Party is much more secular and closer to European idea...

DQ 1. How does a government budget deficit and surplus affect the economy? During what periods in recent history has the U.S. run budget deficits and budget surpluses? What were the reasons for the deficits/surpluses during those time periods?
When the government runs a budget deficit, it is essentially spending more money than it is taking in. The caveat to this is the accounting method used to measure expenditures. For example, the Social Security fund creates an expense for the future expense. A deficit is not a bad thing though. A deficit means the government is pending money and that spending can be as investment in the future (assets) or to help the economy grow out of a recession.

The Syrian Civil War has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Since 2011, protests and attacks have been a daily occurrence, and the regime of Bashar Al-Assad has done what it believed was necessary to stop rebel forces and end protests. As such, Assad has committed many questionable, at best, and criminal, at worst, actions against the civilians of Syria in an effort to stop the rebels. The indiscriminate warfare Assad has used against Syrian citizens is shown in multiple international doctrines as illegal, and is thus a war crime, which should be prosecuted.

Journal Assignment (Oil Market)
Throughout the past decade there has been constant discussion about the United States attaining most of its oil from the Middle East. In fact, many journalists and news feeds have theorized how the majority of American oil has been imported by the Middle Eastern countries, and have even gone to the extent to claim that the American “War on Terror” in Iraq was simply to attain more oil. Whether these conspiracy theories are true or not, import data on oil to the United States has proven otherwise. Peter Kiernan’s (2008) article “America is Not as Dependent on Persian Gulf Oil as Some Might Think” illustrates what his proposed title claims by...

Have you ever read or saw something so profound and riveting, you actually thought the writer crawled into your soul and translated it into words? This poem “Collected Thoughts” by Elena Avila had such an impact on me. From the moment the poem began with “I accept my death” (Avila, 1997, p.1) instantly brought me back to the first time I felt the cold reality of possibly not returning home to my loved ones, while deployed to Iraq in 2003-2004, subsequent deployments to follow in 2005-2006, and finally 2007-2009 to the place of misery. From the initial push into Iraq from Kuwait and the other two deployments...

Assess sociological explanations of the relationship between globalisation and religion
Globalisation is rapidly increasing as the world is becoming more interconnected and barriers are disappearing as a result of the creation of global markets and media and culture due to instantaneous communication systems and deregulation of trade and this is also causing a social change to some religions.
In India globalisation has been a good thing as it has brought rapid economic growth and has caused it to be a more important player on the world political stage. Also it has brought rising prosperity to some people and notably India’s new middle class as Meera Henderson (2008) looks at the role of...

Mesopotamia is home to the invention of writing, our twelve month lunar based calendar, the wheel, the division of minutes to seconds, and the opening of the first routes to import and export trade. The Sumerians of Mesopotamia were enveloped by environmental conditions that constantly tested their skills and intellect for survival. This need for survival served as the basis that called forth the invention of methods and ideas that overtime increased and spiraled into the creation...

There is no denying it; we all are prejudice, some more than others. Just imagine yourself walking through an airport terminal. There is a Middle-Eastern man sitting, waiting to get on the same plane that you happen to be boarding. Due to recent events over the past decade, many Americans have a feeling that this man is a terrorist and is going to blow up the plane. Although this is not the truth, this is how most people think. People obtain these prejudices from family, friends and events. When you are growing up your personality, beliefs and lifestyles are formed. Prejudice does not just come out through skin color, but about other qualities such as physical and mental disabilities....

Religion and religious organizations assert a most important impact on international conflicts. To date, religious, ethnic and nationalist conflicts remain ignored in the study of international relations and peace. The end of The Cold War brought an escalation of nationalist violence and many expected an additional escalation of religious conflicts. Despite the attention given to the religious element of conflicts, it exists as an under-inquired subject. No critical study of the impact of religious organizations on conflict behavior or comparative research of peace-making and peace-building efforts of different religious organizations can document the facts we know in our hearts and should...

The United States first began the invasion of Afghanistan in October of 2001. Since then, the ensuing war has taken many turns, the most significant of which came when Al Qaeda's figurehead and 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden was captured from Afghanistan. The two statements that just followed provide a significant number of anomalies to foreign policy experts.
Firstly, the country of Afghanistan never declared war on the United States or ever officially threatened its sovereignty. Secondly, the main aim for the U.S invasion of Afghanistan, at least in theory was to capture and kill Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda, but has since not only shifted to become a war against the...

Stephen Frears, utilises the director's imagined memories of the events succeeding Diana's death to portray the Queen, and her actions, in a warmer light. A compelling and challenging view of Diana is also presented in the film, furthering Frears' purpose of convincing the audience of the difficulty of the Queen's position and hence softening the public image of her. Diana is initially presented through a montage of grainy archival footage, where Diana almost seems to be courting and teasing the media with her image. While this archival media footage adds authenticity to Frears' account, it also demonstrates how insulting this behaviour would have been to the rigid policies of the monarchy....
