(BS-3) Americans in Afghanistan have bombed many locations connected to the Taliban in hopes of creating peace but failed in Nusrat’s case. (BS-2) Innocent people in Afghanistan have been affected from American bombs, including Najmah. (BS-1) Americans ruined everything many Afghan people loved but seemed to think it is helping. (R) "’If the [U. S. ] base wasn't here, the Taliban wouldn't be attacking us,’ says Kamin Agha, a local truckdriver” (Moreau, Ron,
Harry Truman evidently demonstrates ultranationalist actions and motives to a moderate extent, accordingly, he is guilty of crimes involving the mistreatment, internment, and use of nuclear warfare against the Japanese peoples. Arguments on whether or not he is an ultranationalist are debatable to a considerable extent. Nevertheless, due to the complexity of the issue, the most reinforced position points to a moderate degree of ultranationalism for various reasons. Although Harry Truman was responsible for the death of 129 to 246 thousand Japanese civilians as a direct result of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he ultimately prevented further casualties. The Japanese launched the war with the United States with a secretive attack
Cole, a United States destroyer (Time Magazine 1). The attack on the U.S.S. Cole not only killed innocent people, but those people were American military personnel. After the attack, Bin Laden stated, “I knelt to thank God for this heroic operation that damaged the prestige of the United States,” (Scheuer 118). As a result of the numerous lives lost and attacks executed, it became clear to the United States that Osama bin Laden was a threat, and he needed to be
From logical fallacies, and bias claims that the United States led a massive cover up story just to secure oil interests - and even completely fabricated stories of iraqi soldiers murdering innocent kuwaiti babies- to sources that used ethos, pathos, and logos persuasive techniques involving cruel stories of Iraqi military soldiers- under the command of Saddam Hussein-that used unforgivable, barbaric torture methods against United States POWs. There is only one clear cut solution, in the overwhelming amount of information that was factual and the least bias. It is clear the United States was acting in the best interests of the American people as well as its government , maintained control of one of the world’s most important natural resource, and put an end to the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait . If Operation Desert Storm was never set in motion, a man who spent his entire life causing chaos, murdering innocent people in his own country, and who wanted nothing more than to watch the world become engulfed by hate and fear, would have gained control over ⅕ of the world oil supply. The evidence that suggests the war was unsuccessful or was a cover up to hid the true intent of the government are full of logical fallacies, and bias information, the overall research was factual and the least bias information
Is hatred and revenge ever justified? “Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” (Martin Luther King Jr.) Hatred and revenge proves nothing; hate leads to more hate and revenge leads to more revenge. Osama Bin Laden (founder of Al-Qaeda; a militant Sunni islamist group) justified the 9/11 attacks at New York which violated the USA’s security because 10 years previous during the Gulf War the U.S used Osama’s homeland of Saudi Arabia as a base which in turn violated the security of the Muslim world.
Persepolis proves that a stereotype of “fundamentalism, fanaticism, and terrorism” is dispelled by learning of the average citizen. Satrapi addresses this in Persepolis by using herself and multiple characters in the book. In America you grow up hearing that the middle eastern people are all terrorist, that statement becomes embedded into your brain. This book shows there is way more to the story that we don 't get on the news. The citizens’ stories need to be told too, because they are the ones dealing with oppression of their country.
Bush and his administration in reference to the United States of America post-9/11 policies. to place it more accurately, he argues that the Bush administration skillfully used the shock that affected the country once the fear attacks, so as to attain its own goals, as well as the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author stands on the bottom that the United States of America authorities used mass media as means that of pressure on the mass audience. Moreover, media served as suggests that of psychological pressure on Americans since they accelerated the worry that flooded minds and souls of American individuals. At a similar time, the author implies that American’ reasoning skills were much unfit due to the overwhelming power of mass media that bombarded the consciousness of American citizens with terrible news and even additional terrible forecasts regarding the longer term of the USA (Gore, 2007).
On December 16, 1998, the United States military initiated Operation Desert Fox against Iraq. The operation was planned in response to Saddam Hussein’s countless refusal to cooperate and allow the United Nations to do a weapons inspections for suspicion of concealing Weapons of Mass Destruction, or WMD. The mission was to strike Iraqi military installations used for production, storage, maintaining, and delivering of WMD, while minimizing casualties within the surrounding. Furthermore, as president of Iraq, Saddam Hussein mission was to use military forces by all mean to gain preeminent power. In order to obtain the power, he executed attacks on neighboring Iranian for personal gains on natural resources, tortured innocent civilians in Iraq
generals covered up the story and lied about the massacre of My Lai, because they knew that as soon as the media would find out about the massacre , there would be huge protests and uprisings against the Vietnam War Officials claimed at first, that Charlie Company achieved its aim and “had killed 128 Vietcong guerillas and that 22 civilians had died in this battle” (The Vietnam, p. 47) The My Lai massacre happened after the Tet-Offensive, so the military could not risk the publishing of the massacre to the U.S. citizens, because of all the protests that were happening anyways The story about the massacre must have spread, because more and more people found out about it and got involved in it until, one soldier, named Ron Ridenhour, who heard the story, wrote a letter “to the president Richard Nixon, the Pentagon, State Department and other high ranking government officials” ( ) The government as well as the military still tried to hide the scandal from the public and charged many officers discretely for
This number are minuscule compared to the $53 billion the US put into combatting terrorism and $300 billion in lowered world growth lost to the attacks on 9/11. “Fourteen agencies had requested more than double their FY2002 level. The largest increases were for Homeland Security ($23.9 billion) and Defense ($15.2 billion).” (The attempt of Osama bin Laden and his organization to disrupt the economic growth of a world power seemed to be
The first reports claimed that this was an attack on the Viet Cong but these reports did not fool the public for long. Other soldiers decided to tell the true story of what went on in My Lai and the media was livid with how the military censored the information. Soon after, more reports about unreported deaths by the survivors of the My Lai massacre began to surface. As a result of these events, news reports became increasingly negative. Two years after the My Lai Massacre was revealed, the Pentagon Papers published by The New York Times showed that the government lied to the people about the entire war.
Young people where jumping out of the window. Other people were just scared to see this happen. The government had to response because if they didn’t the terrorist will just keep on doing this and hurting innocent people. The government response was “close terrorist training camp. Hand over leaders of the al- Qaeda network and return all foreign nationals.” It was just not America that suffered on 9/11 the entire civilized word was transformed United States military
Instead, the Saudi Arabian government preferred to seek assistance from the United Nations. Osama did not like the idea of Americans being involved. In 1991, bin Laden went against the government’s orders, and he and his troops tried to take matters into their own hands; however, the Sudanese government decided differently. The government of Sudan had bin Laden return to Afghanistan five years later in 1996 due to the government pressuring bin Laden and his troops; therefore, the American forces defeated the government of the Taliban. (Gale, 2008).
The rising threat of terrorism went ignored by the US government when Osama threatened use of aircraft in an attack against the US (Langley, 69), and because the US wouldn’t acknowledge this, Osama naively believed that america was weak (September 11 attacks, n.p.) and stated that it is a muslim duty to kill americans (Langley, 44), America only makes it worse by trying to kill Osama, making it look like americans really are a threat to Islam (Langley,
For a time, there was monitoring international phone calls made by U.S. citizens, and soon Bush administration started seeking to destroy Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations using military forces. He said, “They saw liberty and thought they saw weakness. And now they will see defeat.” In 2002, Bush announced that they would be use military force if necessary to prevent further threats from terrorists or rogue states, especially any that possessed weapons of mass destruction. George W. Bush mended our country from this devastating event and lead us to a stronger today. His leadership to me defines political courage in all aspects because he chose to do what he thought was right for our country and never backing down for what he believed
