government must acknowledge the program’s mistakes and correct them to bring them in line with international law and a smarter strategy. Part of this is acknowledging the civilian deaths caused by strikes and apologizing to victims’ families. The U.S. has taken steps to reform the program, reportedly tightening the rules for targeting (along the lines of Boyle’s suggestion to only target High-Value enemies). But without transparency, there’s no way for the public to know what is actually happening and to evaluate the program’s success, except leaks. The war will continue in secret, any ineffectiveness hidden, except to the innocent
To conclude his speech, the President mentions self-guilt on the part of the country on how they had not displayed the “sense of business responsibility” that they should have, a rhetorical strategy that approximates the audience to the government. His final sentence is an allusion to his inaugural address, another point in which JFK creates an extra layer of attachment to his listener. The previously mentioned ‘alternate reality’ is used once again but primarily for pathos. He mentions the possibilities of the way that science could be advancing efficiency,“In short, at a time where we could be exploring how more efficiency (...) could be obtained,” he proposes and
Author John M. Barry, in The Great Influenza, claims that scientists must embrace uncertainty and doubt their ideas in order to be successful in their research. To support his claim, he first states that “uncertainty creates weakness”, then lists the traits required by scientists (including curiosity and creativity), and finally explains that experiments must be made to work by the investigator. The purpose of this is to further support his claim in order to encourage readers to embrace uncertainty because certainty creates something to lean on, while uncertainty forces one to manipulate experiments to produce answers. Barry adopts a formal tone to appeal to a worldwide audience, specifically those interested in scientific research, by using
The group of presidents use the fallacy of slippery slope to display why the order shouldn’t be in enacted. The presidents believe if we barricade foreigners from other countries then the higher education of the United States will be impacted. Also, students from around the world show us the importance of religious diversity that’s a key point of America’s freedom. Using slippery slope shows the cause of preventing foreign countries from entering the United States wouldn’t benefit us.
They are afraid that it would change their minds.” Todd leaned forward and locked eyes with Jerry. “What is that supposed to mean?” Jean squinted her eyes. “You’ve heard the conspiracy theories. Perhaps the ones who oppose Memory Shifting believe that the evil government and corporations use Memory Shifting to control us in someway.” Todd leaned back in his seat and crossed his legs. “But, who really believes in that sort of thing, right?” Todd looked at Jean and Jerry before pulling out his phone to check the news.
I was assigned to critique Blaze Brumfield’s persuasive speech about why we as a country should use renewable energy sources instead of nonrenewable energy sources. Overall, I believe Blaze did a fine job, but he could do a few things to improve his speeches. One thing that I believe Blaze did poor was conveying his subject to the audience. For me, I had to think about what the topic of the speech was. The audience should not have to think to themselves about what the speech they are listening to is about.
His followers were angry and pissed, they wanted to honor his life, his death will bring more and more violence. Bin Laden’s death led to many political problems. Osama Bin Laden’s death did not become the guarantee for peace and security. With him gone it had tension the needed to help patched up the misstaked made with Pakistan, the U.S.A carry out this mission with out informing the Pakistan government.

Obama mentioned that changes might need to take place but her did not emphasize on what. He left people very pleased, including the republican party which mostly opposes gun control. The events in Newtown however left Obama with a better opportunity to persuade the nation on implementing gun control policies and thus, he announced a call for action. This began the nationwide debate on what type of action should be taken on gun control
Football players should not be punished for their opinion and issue in which they protest in the United States because it brings awareness to society issues, use social status, and even though people disagree that the protest should not happen during the National Anthem. However, it the best time to show the fans what issues they are protesting. This act of protest is nothing new to America, but it has only just become an outrage due, to the involvement of the president and many other average citizens that claim it to be an unfit way to protest. The first instance of this act dates all the way back to World War II, when the Supreme Court voted down a demand that the flag should be saluted during the Pledge of Allegiance (Sachs 1). Then time goes by until 1996 when basketball star Abdul-Rauf was suspended for the length of one game, due to him refusing to stand for the national anthem for a religious purpose.
Statistics are known to be biased, and his statistics are picked to justify and push this theory. Pinker doesn’t consider that his American perspective and our way of life colors his beliefs. He doesn’t mention the possibility of massive destruction of humanity in a way there could never have happened before the invention of nuclear weapons. He feels our sense of responsibility for democratizing and civilizing the world influences our ability to have empathy and compassion, become less selfish and vengeful and therefore violence has declined dramatically. People have experienced a broadening sense of community, global interdependence and our global society.
