The issue of the Iraq war is still one of the most controversial wars that the United States has ever led. Before the 9/11 attacks, the United States starting a war against Iraq, would have been highly unlikely. In 2003, the United States backed by the United Kingdom, decided to invade Iraq. One of the main reasons that led to this decision was the fact that Iraq was thought to have weapons of mass destruction, which would pose a threat both to the United States of America and, by extension, to the west. Here we are, 14 years later, and the war has had major effects on world politics.
However, NATO 's current actions are gravely offending Russia. Russia 's political class interprets the air campaign as the US reneging on the bargain it struck with Russia at the cold war 's end. Russia would be increasingly threatened by the deployment of ground troops, should that come to pass. NATO must prevent a nationalist backlash by reassuring Russia that it doesn 't intend to threaten Russia 's security. They must work toward repairing NATO-Moscow relations and transform Russia 's passive support into active opposition to Serbian
Good day to all! My name is Steffi Yapson. And today, I will be talking about why the European countries should accept refugees to enter their borders. The Syrian Refugee Crisis has been one of the most controversial issues in our world today, especially in the Western World. Numerous sides have sprung up, with most countries in Eastern Europe refusing Syrian refugees on the basis of security policies, while some countries in Western Europe such as Germany expressed support for refugees seeking refuge from the terror and chaos in Syria.
Some argue that attempting to overthrow Assad could prompt military conflict with Russia, who backs Assad due to its belief that the only way to defeat ISIS is to team up with him (McDonald & Moser, 2016c). While this is a valid concern, if the ground troops first achieve the goal of dismantling ISIS’s military and then focus on overthrowing Assad, Russia’s reason for backing Assad will be gone and it will have no reason to retaliate. Others argue that this war is not in the best interest of the United States as a community because it will inevitably lose another war due to lack of international and domestic support, which can lead to other countries doubting its military and political strength. (Simon & Stevenson, 2015). The US would not face any opposition from the international community because many countries are also against ISIS.
In conclusion, the Cold War created a great tension between the US and Soviet Union in forming competing ideologies of capitalism and communism. These opposite ideals were the driving force behind many major decisions by the US in its foreign policy in terms of containing the spread of communism. The US engaged in proxy wars where it supported allies which held similar beliefs. In the Vietnam conflict, the US not only supported an ally but even fought side by side to stop the adoption of communism in that country. Although looking back, the US may question its involvement in the Vietnam war, at that time, based on its position taken in the Cold War conflict this high cost seemed well worth it.
The stage leading up to the outbreak of World War 1 featured incredibly impactful decisions that would eventually create the beginning of the Modern Era. However, diplomacy leading up to World War 1 created a negative impact on the war in that it was largely based upon a balance of power. Globally, this outdated diplomacy lead to the militarism of all countries involved, thus only heightening the tensions, and leading up to the outbreak of World War 1. By the end of the war, it is evident that many of the countries recognized their mistakes and attempted to find long-term solutions through extensive treaties and international humanitarian efforts. The diplomatic tendencies of many prominent leaders invited war.
By capitalizing on the presence of Islamophobia, politicians have been able to renew and grow radical nationalism. The use of entrapment and unnecessary surveillance has created an environment where the Muslim-minority can be easily targeted and identified as a threat through damaging rhetoric. The rate of anti-Muslim crime over the past two decades has risen exponentially, leaving many to have to fend for themselves and fight injustice in a society where their mere presence is considered threatening. Rhetoric framing the privileged majority as somehow under attack has allowed politicians to enter wars and maintain damaging military presence while justifying the acts, stating that they are necessary for national security. It is clear that until political rhetoric completely shifts away from its pattern of marginalization and Muslim-focused hate, Islamophobia will remain a painful element of western society, leaving many to suffer the consequences of acts completely unrelated to
To conclude, in my opinion, this event is what sparked the war into action and without it the war wouldn’t of happened. Lastly, The most important person in the cause of the war is Franz Joseph Ⅱ. After his son was assassinated he made many demands Serbia had to fulfil. When Serbia didn’t meet the Duke’s demands he declared war on the country. Franz Joseph Ⅱwas the one who initiated the war when he declared it against Serbia which drawed the other Europeans into it because of their alliances.
In the wake of the recent Paris attacks the argument of allowing refugees into the UK has been a greatly debated topic and has been argued incessantly in the media. A common argument that is given is that, allowing the refugees into the UK will bring terrorists attacks to the country, people believe that hidden amongst the refugees are terrorists and that bringing so many Muslims into the country will cause destruction to the nation. They believe Muslims are the root cause of terrorism and terrorist acts however there is evidence to show Islam’s stance on terrorism and show that allowing refugees into the country should be a moral obligation as It is inhumane of the people of this country to neglect men, women and children who are fleeing severe war and persecution in
