United States of America: Dominating the World Military Powers
Since the beginning of time, the strength of the World Leaders is directly affected by the strength of its military. It is nearly impossible for a Nation to be a world “power house” without the strength of a dominating military force. This statement holds truth when you look at the United States military and how it has shaped the balance of the United States’ influence throughout the world. Although the United States military force has constantly changed over the years; it still remains as the driving force behind the machine known as the United States. America’s military force has always been a threat, and began to emerge...

Military veterans, from any branch of the service, often have very desirable skills that can assist them in transitioning from military life, to civilian life, and do so successfully. Military training can help prepare soldiers to thrive in various careers ranging from health care, food service, carpentry, aviation, police work and counter terrorism. In the case of Robbie Doughty, Michael Llitch was moved by Robbie’s story. Robbie’s courage, perseverance, and never say die attitude impressed Michael Llitch. These personality traits, along with the intense training programs designed to teach soldiers how to operate under a tremendous amount of physical and mental stress make them ideal...

Combat Exclusion Law
Should women serve in combat positions? The Combat Exclusion Law has dealt with this question since the 1940’s. As time continues, the question remains. The military has increased the percentage of females allowed to be enlisted and commissioned in the services as well as increasing the positions allotted to them (Matthews, Ender, Laurence, & Rohall, 2009). Keenan posits “women have served with distinction in … the Revolutionary War…as volunteer nurses and were only occasionally in the direct line of fire…four nurses evacuating 42 patients while the Germans bombed...

Protecting information and all assets is critical in today’s time. The military faces three major types of threats: Employees, Zero-Day Exploits, and Cyber Espionage. It is imperative, due to the information and assets on-hand, that the military mitigates these risks.
The first major threat, employees, is a very common threat to all organizations. Employees can be broken down into three types of threats which include, employees that are careless and untrained, employees that are tricked or fall prey to social engineering, and employees with malicious intentions. This will always be a potential threat because every organization requires employees to run and function. Protecting a network...

Hamdan was recognized as the bodyguard and personal driver for Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. Following his capture, Hamdan was sent to Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba in 2002.

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...

The freedoms that the United States prides itself on came at a cost, and it continues to require a sacrifice from those members of the military and their families to protect the country. A controversy regarding the freedom of speech that has been covered recently by the media is the protests that the Westboro Baptist Church performs outside of military funerals.

Informational Privacy in the United States Marine Corps (USMC)
Sgt Karen A Holliday, USMC
Trident University International
In my honest opinion the thought of informational privacy within the military is a sort of oxymoron. Although huge strides have been taken to put in place more secure methods of information storage, the military lags far behind their civilian counterparts in this department. There are many policies under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) in regards to the informational privacy protection of service members. The problem is not in the policy, it is in the enforcement and adherence to these policies.
When asked to write on this issue, there is one...

In 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Executive Order 9066. This order allowed the United States military to section off parts of the US as military areas. In these areas they were trying to exclude specific groups of people from them. The group they were trying to exclude were the Japanese-Americans because they were believed to be acting as spies and sending signals to enemy submarines. The order requested that many Japanese-Americans leave their homes and business. However, many were forcibly removed from their homes and placed in internment camps during...

In this week’s readings I have learned that Henry Fielding from Westminster, England can be credited with laying the foundation for the first modern police force in 1748. The first metropolitan police force was started in New York City in 1845 because of the fear of crime and social disintegration (Inciardi, 2010 p. 148). As America moved west, most frontier towns had a sheriff who was the chief law enforcement official. The Sheriff could be recruited from the community or selected by his reputation whether good or bad. Today the Sheriff still exist and serves in a more formal and political role. The law enforcement system has grown from small organizations to many advanced units that...

Jean Genet’s life experiences in 1940’s France affected the content of his book Querelle of Brest. This is immediately evident when you glance at the main character of Querelle of Brest. The immediate comparisons are obvious, both Jean Genet and Querelle were in the French military, both Genet and Querelle are criminals, and both Genet and Querelle have a history of homosexual tendencies. These similarities are just the surface however. Genet uses the characters in Querelle of Brest to express complex ideas about his own self-image.
Before delving into these ideas however, one must first know a bit about Jean Genet’s personal history and the environment he was in. Jean Genet...

After a historic election in 2001, Thaksin was the first democratically elected prime minister of Thailand to complete a full term in office and his rule is generally agreed to have been one of the most distinctive in the country's modern history. At the time, some academics called it the most open, corruption-free election in Thai history. Thai Rak Thai won 248 parliamentary seats. Not only that, he got re-elected and back in position again in 2005, winning 374 out of 500 seats in the Parliament. The election had been recorded as the highest voter turnout in Thai history. That means that the people of Thailand approved him democratically. And it’s the...

Research Paper: Foreign Assistance
The government needs to solve the problem of wasteful spending in regards to its use of foreign aid. While it has been a practice for the U.S. to provide foreign aid to other countries for national security purposes, wasteful spending in a time when the U.S. already runs a large deficit needs to stop. I recommend the cutting of foreign aid to foreign nations and in turn setting up an economic investment fund aimed to help countries economies specifically; this is the proper policy because humanitarian groups will always help the impoverished and spending money on foreign aid to help corrupt leaders needs to stop.

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...

The yes votes comprised seven Democrats and three Republicans, including Sen. John McCain, who had expressed...
