This weekend I am engaged in extensive sessions with members of my National Security Council, as we plan a comprehensive assault on terrorism” Whitehouse.gov (2001) Here, the Former President has associated the attackers with “terrorism” and has explained that the National Security Team is planning a comprehensive assault on terrorism. Again, security is the primary issue, and it is the first topic of the speech. Further into the speech, in his words, “In Washington D.C. the political parties and both houses of Congress have shown a terrorist attack designed to tear us apart has instead bound us together as a nation” Again, unity is the key to the nation being safe from terrorists. Whereby, Former President Bush associates disunity with the goal of terrorist attack. To not be unified is to play into the terrorists hands.
During his presidency and after the attacks of 9/11, Bush declared war on terrorism in the form of global containment to a global threat. (Bergen L. Peter, “September 11 Attacks). With this action, Bush has effectively created a political platform and government focus that continues and will continue today on wiping out terrorism, more specifically terrorism in the Middle East. This also pressures other foreign nations as a moral obligation to help the U.S. contain such a threat. Another aspect of war that was influenced is the war readiness being a factor in creating war (Ehrenreich, 598).
To have productive people we need morals in our world. Censorship keeps us respectful of each other in order to be productive. Censorship creates safety In society hall Johnson author of “Censorship of War Casualties,” the author states “Americans are morally responsible for the wars and the war crimes controlled in their names.” By censoring our society we can have less wars and create morals. Hall also says.” We need to not give the news media so much info on war”. When we allow the news media to report our war tactics and give out info that destroys society and morals.
The activities of Osama bin Laden led to the gradual transformation of Islamic extremism Taliban terrorism, which left the country. Under the unified political and organizational beginning created the paramilitaries, a kind of terrorism, "Brigade", and the key coordinating role in this play led by bin Laden 's organization "Al Qaeda" and "World Front for Jihad", as well as the Taliban leadership. (Nasrawi 2004, np.). This is reflected in the financial and military support from Islamic organizations and movements in different countries and regions of the world - Bosnia, Kosovo, Chechnya, Uzbekistan, Kashmir, Xinjiang, etc. (Tucker 2010,
Some may argue that the government should be strictly respected because they provide and protect our basic freedoms and needs. Others may disagree and state that it is appropriate to not only rebel, but overthrow the government no matter the condition due to a lack of trust and a sense of individuality that these defiant citizens feel they possess and must preserve. I feel that these two views are too extreme and that there is no sense in having too much or too little trust in the government. People should be cautious, and should not act unless there is a sense of intense corruption within the government which can be reversed through peaceful actions, brought on by voicing an opinion, even if it is not deemed valuable by the
His argument at this point is based on the teaching of three specific religions. Not only is Colson referring to religion, which is already an area that is entirely open for interpretation, but he is also arguing that a legal change should not be made on the grounds that these three religions state otherwise. In a democratic country where church and state have been separated, this argument becomes invalid. The teachings of the church hold no power in the government. Although this choice of persuasive technique may have helped Colson to convince his Muslim, Jewish, and Christian readers, it has overall done more harm than good in developing his argument.
When speaking poorly about Muhammad Muslims face punishments resulting in death. (Sharia law,2017) The first amendment is the way it is because, citizens should not be punished for practicing the religion of their choice. Also, coming into America Muslims should not expect us to accommodate them. George Carlin once said “Religion is like a pair of shoes… find ones that fit you but don’t make me wear your shoes. (goodeads,2017)” Leaving the constitution as it is will insure that religion in America is
The United States of America government accused the Taliban of protecting and harboring Osama Ben Laden, which causes them a direct and serious threat; one they seek to remove. This leads us to ask who are al Qaeda After the invasion of Afghanistan by the Soviets, young Islam extremists went to Afghanistan to fight the “holy war” also known as jihad. One of these young men was Osama Bin Laden, coming from Saudi Arabia.Although he started in Afghanistan, Bin Laden wanted to expand his plans beyond and started gathering wealthy Islam extremists tofinance and help the jihad groups all over the Islamic world, creating, what he called, “The Golden Chain”. He also created a support group to train and finance young jihadists and follow them in their fight.After the Soviets pulled out, Bin Laden decided not to dissolve his organization but rather keep it as a base or “Al Qaeda” for future jihad. Bin Laden left Afghanistan and settled in
It has instilled and derived a fear, a fear which prevents me from going about my day as candidly and carefree as I once did. But I do continue to live, because I know that the law will ensure the individuals who present such cowardly acts will be brought to justice. Witnessing the repercussions first hand has only fuelled my determination to broaden my understanding of the law because it simply isn’t acceptable. One should not be deterred from sitting next to a Muslim on public transport, nor should the norm of Muslims being associated with terrorists continue. Hence, studying law is pivotal in changing certain social attitudes towards individuals, law manages to permeate every part of today's world; it colours many areas of life and is very much integrated with, and affected by current affairs.
Based on the first amendment which states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”. We the citizens of the United States have the freedom to choose and practice our religion, freedom of speech, freedom of press and freedom of petition. Although this amendment seems to be beneficial for the general public it actually does more harm than good. I do not believe that there is in fact a such thing as freedom. Freedom means the power to act, speak or think as one warns without hindrance or restraint.
