This leads to a fundamental United States security question why do organizations conducting terror tactics garner so many recruits? For without recruits, there are no individuals to carry out terrorist strategies or plans. It doesn’t matter if we agree with the rationalization of the use of terrorism only that we acknowledge the truth behind the roots of it. As Khouri stated, “Disrupting groups such as ISIL militarily without removing the causes that give them life is a fool’s
Decapitating of the leaders, or the killing, arrest or capturing of the leaders of terrorist organisations, has become an essential feature of United State’s counterterrorism policy design. Many scholars and analysts claim that it weakens terrorist organisations and reduces the threat they pose. Unsurprisingly, the killing of Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011, in Abbottabad, Pakistan, has proved to be a major tactical victory for President Barack Obama and specially for the war on terrorism. Despite the success of this operation and successive attacks on al-Qaida leaders, decapitation is unlikely to lessen the ability of al-Qaida to continue its terrorism in the long run. Rather, it may have counterproductive consequences, fortifying or nourishing the
However, Nixon was a man that would go to extreme lengths and tricks if it achieved political success. Nixon also believed that it was better to attack an opponent rather than defend, similar to McCarthyism. Nixon gained victories by attacking his opponents with blatant lies, partial truths, and confusing quotations. Not only this, but Nixon also employed arguments on distorted
Even if his motives were good, he used methods such as terrorism to attempt to stop the proslavery force’s spread, which stirred the pot, and made the clash between free-soilers and proslavery forces an even uglier fight than before. Fergus Bordewich has written seven nonfiction books, such as “Washington: The Making of the American Capital” and, according to Fergus Bordewich (2009) in his internet article, “Day Of Reckoning”, Bordewich summarizes that John Brown decided that terrorism and guerilla warfare would work against the proslavery forces, so Brown attacked proslavery settlers at Pottawatomie Creek, killing five, so in turn, because of the unjustified attack on the settlers, a band composed of proslavery forces killed a few citizens, including Brown’s son Frederick, and burned down the antislavery town of Osawatomie. The men Brown and his men killed were not even involved in the sack of Lawrence, which motivated Brown to attack in the first place. According to Bordewich, (2009), “A party of Free-Staters led by Brown dragged five pro-slavery men out of their isolated cabins on eastern Kansas’ Pottawatomie Creek and hacked them to death with cutlasses. The horrific nature of the murders
Several people from different walks of life have extended their own opinions on just and unjust wars. Defencists argue the need to engage in war as an act of defense when there is a threat, such as facing a country what initiated a violent war, overthrowing a cruel and oppressive government, and protecting its people against an invader; the Realists’ belief is similar to those of the Defencists, but that war is said to be just when your moral standards call for it (Orend, 2009). For instance, fighting against the US government after it overthrew your previous dictator, but then proceeded to use Phosphorus shells on civilian targets. As a Realist soldier ordered by the US government to participate in this war, you would call for the right to
Policy Options — Advantages and Disadvantage When referring to the extensive research on suicide attacks as a whole and in particular, retaliation methods for countering suicide bombers at the final stages of their attack, the most appropriate measures of action, initially appear clear. Nevertheless, just as with most troubling phenomenas, each option is followed by a series of pros and cons, which require deliberation for the purpose of achieving the most effective results. The following section will outline each of the policies available to the Israel Security Agency (ISA) and the Police Security Committee , followed by a set of advantages and disadvantages to each: Targeted Killings — Targeted killing of terrorist leaders and operators, using defensive and offensive intelligence (as a mean of protection, not
However, United States and United Kingdom’s airstrikes were ought to be extreme since the bombing sabotaged the innocent ones. The possible reason for US to undertake such actions was to avenge for the severe losses from the 9/11 event. Additionally, in order to demonstrate US’s strong military power to the globe, US had taken this as an opportunity. Whereas the US had successfully proven its troops’ strengths, Barrack Obama now faces criticism: rash, uncooperative, and brutal. Indeed, the United Nations Security Council might not be able to come up with the most feasible resolutions to cope with the dilemmas that take place in the Middle East and was unable to execute immediate actions; however, US’s defilement might provoke other series of social unrest in neighboring regions and more unknowing residents have to be sacrificed.
Then, Lewis becomes extremely sarcastic, when he reaches the main portion of his speech and starts to indirectly criticize Brutus’ actions. For example, he raises his eyebrows and shakes his head, which reinforce the message delivered. Furthermore, Lewis also consistently emphasizes and pauses between the words “Brutus” and “honourable.” Antony uses “Tautology” as he sends the same idea using different words in his entire speech. He repeatedly calls Brutus “honourable” and “noble”, which, or course, he doesn’t mean at all. The intended meaning is, in fact, the opposite, which the audiences understand.
But as has also been noted, such a cultural consensus can potentially, and damagingly, prohibit serious enquiry. And this dilemma defines how the literature of terror has struggled over the years to come to terms with the representation of 9\11. Thus, for Baudrillard, 9\11is an event that is the result of globalist or rather perhaps, the globalization of American economic, cultural military power. Given the ubiquity of this power and its complete dominance over the world, Baudrillard does not deny that terrorists were but he also accuses the globalized economy of being similarly immoral, he write including the Gulf War or the war in Afghanistan are the unavoidable eruptions endemic within any hegemonic domination. But Baudrillard goes on to argue that 9/11 defies not just morality, but any form of interpretation.
A great example of a group like this is terrorist organizations because they typically have different notions of what societies should be working towards, as well as alternative means. Of course, terrorism embodies violence and reform typically in lieu of the then-current political dominance. ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, has a mission of putting in power an individual they deem a religious successor to Muhammad, an entity to unite Muslims worldwide. They seem to want simple change for unity and such, but they advocate for themselves in such a way, using social media and fear tactics to promote their violent acts, such as beheadings, etc. to show that there can only be one victor and that they have the means to perform a coup successfully.
