There is a constant threat to the United States and its citizens in the form of terrorism. Taking the proper steps is crucial to ensure the Homeland stays protected as well as the people that rightfully live in it. There are still many terrorist organizations that have explicitly spoken and wrote about having their ultimate goal to inflict terrorism on the United States. These organizations are being constantly monitored with professionals and counterterrorism agencies. The National Counterterrorism center is one of the leading agencies in gathering intelligence and reporting on potential terrorism activity.
Take swift and decisive action, including military action.” (UN). Preventing can contain two terms, preventing a genocide to not happen and prevent further destruction and casualties while a genocide is going on. And, genocide most probably happens at the time of war, so to stop that people need to understand its roots such as hatred, intolerance, racism, discrimination and so on. After understanding the early warning and root causes of genocide the convention can mandate to prevent the genocide. It can be done through the UN Peace Keepers, preventive diplomacy or putting pressure on the government in order to change the decisions of political leaders, through humanitarian interventions and human rights.
Additionally, I have identified two propositions that may be decent approaches at addressing this nightmare. In order to successfully address this issue, Latin America needs to implement stricter laws and regulations pertaining to feminicidio. Recently, more laws and regulations have been incorporated in attempts to decrease the amount of killings. Although they continue to expand these laws, I think they can achieve better results through harsher punishments, stricter regulations, and advertising the significance of the issue. Implementing harsher punishments will serve a useful purpose and help rid the country of several criminals.
Torture When it comes to the topic of torture, some of us will readily agree that torture is necessary when dealing with terrorists. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the question of receiving false information. Whereas some are convinced that torture is the only way to get information out of terrorist who are threatening to put thousands of innocent lives in danger. Others maintain that doing this will violate laws such as the Bill Of Rights which forbids cruel and unusual punishment. My own view, however, is that terrorism aims to spread and increase fear within civil society in order to achieve certain political goals.
The Two Types of Terrorism Terrorism has always been part of the world since evil has existed. But now with modern tools and the advancement of technology, we have met a new and quicker caliber of destruction, called terrorism. September 11, 2001, is the date when terrorism made its fearful presence in the United States of America. There are two types of terrorism, Domestic and International. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) website international terrorism is defined as the following “Perpetrated by individuals and/or groups inspired by or associated with designated foreign terrorist organizations or nations (state-sponsored).” Domestic terrorism is defined by them as “Perpetrated by individuals and/or groups inspired
Firstly he vilifies the groups by mentioning in greater depth than necessary their egregious crimes and policies, and secondly he asserts the need to create an international task force to destroy these terror groups. His purpose in making these statements is clearly to create a resounding need in the view to combat these groups, and make it seem like he knows how to combat these groups. Bernie's use of hyperbole
The need not only to save the hostages, but also to end this cycle of terrorism, was clear, and hence a mission such as Operation Thunderbolt would both liberate the hostages as well as act as deterrence to future terrorist attacks. Hence this mission may also be viewed as a reaction to all terrorist attacks on Israel in the past and not only a reaction to this event alone. Therefore when looking at the context of this event, a powerful strike back mission, such as Operation Thunderbolt, can be viewed as a necessary step in order to act as a deterrence to any future acts of terrorism. This mission was meticulously planned and incredibly well thought-out and therefore, can by no means be seen to be a rash or impulsive action. The element of surprise, the rapid speed of the mission as well as the lethal force implemented were all essential aspects to ensure the success of the mission.
(U) In order to fight terrorism, the intelligence community needs to understand its causes and precursors. Additionally, identification of emerging trends and indications allows the intelligence community to forecast potential terrorist threats and provide early warning to policy makers in order to minimize potential attacks. One of the most prominent early warning indicators in determining the potential for terrorism growth derives itself from demographic trends. The “youth bulge” suggests a strong correlation between countries
“Where is the Love” was released in 2003; post 9/11. The events that occurred on 9/11 were very gruesome for the United States. The lyrics emphasises the evil that is terrorism, and how the U.S is sending troops overseas to stop the terrorism in other countries even though there are still terrorists that still reside in the U.S. Not only that, but the lyrics suggest that there are terrorists that are members in the CIA, Bloods, Crips, and KKK. That line of the song calls out the faults in the government and its branches of systems and institutions. This stanza especially highlights the similarities of violence that is associated with all of those
These improvements are aimed to monitor suspicious behaviors and hopefully prevent future terrorist attacks like 9/11. This topic is highly controversial. Opponents of the Patriot Act argue that this act restricts the right to privacy which is promised to citizens by the founding fathers and is stated in the Constitution. Supporters argue that the Patriot Act is a necessary response to 9/11 and provides our law enforcement with the means to eradicate potential terrorist behaviors before they occur. Truly, the Patriot Act is one of the most positive government or public response to the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
Captured pirates can also provide information about terrorists in Somalia. Increasing humanitarian aid to Somalia will help in the reduction of the impact of terrorism on civilians. Somalis and other East Africans have borne the brunt of Al Shabab terrorists. They need assistance to recover from terrorism, lack of leadership, and poverty. The taskforce should consider policies that seek to strength democracy and democratic institutions within the region.
The Democratic party believes we must also increase the number of cops on the streets, while Republicans wish to limit the amount of freed prisoners. More concerned over the supply and demand of drugs in the United States, the Democratic Party wishes to put in place more preventative measures against smuggling and dealing drugs. By strengthening our relationship with Central American countries, together we can combat gangs and narco-traffickers that target those who wish to smuggle drugs into our country. They also wish to reenforce the D.A.R.E. program and provide treatments for at risk
“Homeland security is defined as: a concerted national effort to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce the vulnerability of the United States to terrorism, and minimize the damage and assist in the recovery from terrorist attacks. Homeland defense is defined as: the military protection of United States territory, domestic population, and critical defense infrastructure against external threats and aggression. It also includes routine, steady state activities designed to deter aggressors and to prepare U.S. military forces for action if deterrence fails.” (Bowman,
The Department of homeland security was formed in the wake of the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. It was created as a part of a determined effort to protect the United States against terrorism. The goal of the DHS is simple, one department of homeland security, one enterprise, a shared vision, with integrated results-based operations. There are a variety of topics handled by the DHS which are academic engagement, border security, critical infrastructure security, disasters, homeland security enterprise, human trafficking, preventing terrorism, privacy, transportation security, economic security, and plenty more. Terrorists’ attacks on the United States in the past years have sparked a national fear that many people
Mission Overlaps within the Department of Homeland Security In the United States, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is primarily responsible for ensuring the safety of the general public. Aside from that, this department seeks to protect the U.S. from terrorists, and it ensures that the immigration and customs is properly managed, and that disaster is efficiently prevented, as the case may be. However, some have called for the shutting down of the DHS because mission areas overlap within this department. In line with this assertion, this paper will identify the possible mission areas or responsibilities that overlap within the DHS and at the same time, this paper will also provide recommendations for possible consolidation.
