With the changes in the country over the last several years Iraq has turned into a power house when it comes to exporting oil and because the country has a different government they are able to form trade agreements, like the one that continues to grow with Europe that they would have been unable to form in prior year based on the ruler of the country and how the country was run.

This resolve continued with a Reaganite point of view, it was president Regan who responded to the Soviet proxies with a proxy war built on the Nixon doctrine of preparing to wage low-intensity conflicts against military nationalist regimes in the Third World.

attacks of 9/11. One such tactic the government used to instill a desire for war amongst its people was the act of “stovepiping.” Stovepiping was a process “by which Bush administration officials provided raw intelligence from the field directly to high level officials bypassing vital filters” (227). What stovepiping did was allow for the government to create made up intelligence and promote it to the general public as reasons why the war and invasion of Iraq was necessary. The government tricked American people into thinking the threat from Iraq was greater than it actually was by exaggerating evidence against Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction.

In addition the U.S. did not want to tell America, how they dropped food on the ground for the kids in Iraq to eat then the soldiers came and killed all of the kids.

Conceptually, then, ISIS is not behaving in the way that one might expect a terrorist group to behave. Rather, ISIS is conducting itself as a rebel government that has the ambition of capturing more and more territory and eventually becoming the official government of all of Iraq and the Levant (as its name would indicate). If ISIS continues to be perceived as a terrorist group, then this is surely not for geopolitical reasons, but rather ideological ones: that is, the ideology of ISIS would seem to be very close to the

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.

way that pressure groups can be a threat to democracy is that decision makers have their own political agenda. Politicians usually have their own agenda and ideas which leads to pressure groups being unlikely to gain any power or influence if their ideas do not conform. In practice, the most powerful pressure groups tend to be the ones that posses money, expertise, institutional leverage and privileged links to government. Two examples are CND who had 250,000 which was deemed unsucessful and during the Iraq war protests where 1 million people protested and was unsucessful as well.

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.

Led by elite troops making airborne and amphibious landings, and four divisions of the Republican Guard, 150,000 Iraqi soldiers rolled into and occupied Kuwait. It is probable that Saddam Hussein’s primary motive for the invasion was ﬁnancial. The eight-year war he had started by invading Iran in 1980 had left his regime with massive debts to Kuwait and other Gulf states. By taking Kuwait and declaring it the nineteenth province of Iraq, Saddam would cancel his debts to that country and be able to use its massive oil income to repay his debts to other nations.

In this situation religion has a special significance for its followers because it symbolises the group or society’s collective identity. There are two examples of this these are Poland and Iran. It has created war and terror such as the war in Iraq. So the effect of globalisation on religion has created a clash of civilisations. Huntington’s view is that religious defences are creating a new set of hostile ‘us and them’ situations as there is an increase in competitions against western civilisations for economic and military power.
