A tragedy is an event that is horrific and often can be never be healed. However, with the presence of the correct type of leadership, a tragedy can progressively produce a better world for mankind. For example, the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. were horrific tragedies. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, world leaders, such as President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair, produced speeches that motivated people to prevail over tragedy and instead take the opportunity to make a greater and more prosperous future for the world. President Bush and Prime Minister Blair also had to use their speeches to turn the world from terrorism to a more positive course.
In contrast, it could be argued that Kasich’s plan to spend $102 billion in defense is a waste of money and we could defend our country with less spending. “We must rebuild our defenses while leveraging the strengths of our allies in order to effectively challenge the capabilities of our enemies. We can ensure that scarce resources reach the troops who need them most by streamlining Pentagon bureaucracy and transforming procurement processes to get new weapons systems into the field on time and on budget” ( The
The Patriot Act (the full name is the USA Patriot Act, or "Uniting and Strengthening America Act by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001") was signed on October 26 by the former U.S. President George W. Bush in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11. The main purposes are to improve the level of domestic security and to strengthen the powers of law-enforcement agencies in terms of identifying and eliminating terrorists. The US government and its supporters believe that it is one of the most useful tools to investigate and arrest terrorists within and outside the borders of the country. However, critics argue about Acts “overpower” which treats the civilians in non-democratic way and
The Utilitarian approach to terrorism and torture asks to “choose the action that will produce the greatest benefits and the least harm” and provide “the greatest good” for the innocent and the masses (Velasquez, et al. 1996). In the case of terrorist attacks and mass murders officials must know what lengths they are willing to go to protect their people and the rest of the world. The war on terrorism is one that The United States has been dedicated to fighting since the attacks of 9/11. Our focus needs to be on stopping the individual terrorists of the world and finding the information we need in order to ultimately end these attacks on civilization and this war on terror. In search for a greater outcome for everyone affected, our government officials have to be willing to do everything in their power to protect the masses.
New terrorist organizations such as ISIS have raised from past conflicts that involved United States intervention in many of the Middle Eastern countries. Form the United States Kenyan Embassy bombing to 9/11 to the present day, the "war on terror" initiated by George W. Bush intended to dismantle and eliminate terrorism and countries that support terrorism. However, United Sates invasion in the middle east only brought more instability and more "negative" (Driscoll) options that the United States is the enemy. Dealing this rampant terrorism has been a controversial topic ever since the invasion of Afghanistan. American Counter Terrorism Operations was intended to deal and stop this issue, however, counter terrorism might not the
In the article “ Speedy drug approvals are risky, but drug companies have another idea that 's just terrible” the writer mentions how President Trump statement’s that “we’re going to be cutting regulations at a level that nobody’s ever seen before.” and ““we’re going to have tremendous protection for the people.” are contradicting each other. On his cutting regulations statement he’s basically saying that new drugs won 't have to go through much testing before they’re made available to the people. This could mean that the drug poses undiscovered side effects and could cause terrible risks.
For example in war society accepts killing for self-defense. Nations tend to get involved when there is an oppressing government in other countries. There involvement allows humanity to sin against, “authorities who tried to muzzle new thoughts and to the authority of long-established opinions which declared a change to be nonsense” (Fromm, Erich). Fromm believes that the definition of sin has changed in society when it is meant to a certain extent have a beneficial outcome. Osama bin Laden was one of the United States most wanted for the attacks on September 11.
Illegal immigration makes it easier for terrorist to come into the U.S and harm to the people of this great nation. John says, “George W. Bush promised to fix the problem with Illegal Immigration and presents possible solutions to help with border control, provides technological capabilities,
The 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, once stated, “My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.” America does need to work on being the “best country in the world”, but it does have some good things going for it like the freedom of speech and to protest. So many people around the world are murdered for speaking up for their personal rights as a human being, and that is why it is so important that we have this freedom to speak out. We need to protect our rights as Americans because other people do not have these
In recent years there have been a few cases surrounding the issue of the amount of power the United States government should have when it comes to surveillance of the general population. When it comes to issues like this, as well as any argument, there are two sides: those opposed and those in favor. The opposed in this case are of the Orwellian mindset, preaching that increased governmental surveillance, even for the purpose of increased national security from foreign harm such as spies or terrorists, will be the gateway for an extension of power that eventually seep into all facets of everyday life, and by the time the population realizes the government’s power has extended beyond its limit it will be too late. On the other hand, those in
As a former United States Army soldier I would have to say no, I believe that emotions and feelings ran high throughout the United States, so this gave our government away to invade the country of Iraq by implementing and tying them into terrorist activities which led up to September 11th. Just recently President Obama shut down operations in Iraq, however while shutting down operations based on public opinion he suspended then change the operational capacity within the country, this led to a new threat to the country 's region and the declining the stabilization of this country. Now we are back to square one president "Obama has urged Congress to authorize military action against terrorist who are actively cutting a swath across the Middle East," I do not believe that the use of force is necessary unless we know all of the facts,
I am in favor of the patriot ACT. I know many people think, it is kind of violation of the privacy, but the patriot ACT make the U.S. a better place to live. There are countries, which try to do some damage to the U.S., and they will do anything to accomplish it. The patriot ACT made it easier for the law enforcement whenever they needed to arrest someone, whether is a drug dealer, a terror organization or someone who tries to make some damages through technology. These acts can have huge impact on the people and the society, law enforcement should act faster than the enemies in order to get them before they get what they want.
I’ll be discussing the similarities and differences between the Alien and Sedition Act and the Patriot Act, and how these two Acts impacted our nation during a time of war. Furthermore, both of these Acts helped protect our nation when there was a crisis at at hand. However, both of these Acts provide the government with power that was not constitutional. The Alien Sedition act was passed in-order to protect the young nation from french spies. The Patriot Act was passed in-order to protect the nation from further terrorist attacks.
Has Al Qaeda become a problem in the United States today? Does the United States need to do something to stop Al Qaeda? Many U.S. Citizens think that all types of terrorist should be killed, then we wouldn 't have to worry about them anymore. The U.S. Policy on Terrorism has spread terrorism instead of containing it. These are some of the cons on the U.S. Policy on terrorism. "
However, a similar attitude seems to be at the center of the explanation. American’s seem to have a lot of pride concerning their culture, and their country. American’s want perfection for their country, like most people do. However, America has over-criminalized crime, and seems to be obsessed with “cleaning up the streets.” Politician’s do not want to look lenient, and they want to be hard on crime.
