“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
The nation can only protect itself to a certain extent but when it comes to terrorist they cannot protect themselves from such people so it is the duty of National Security to step in and to do so they use certain procedures like torture to gain information from the terrorists. If National Security did not use torture to retrieve some of the information it has, then many citizens would be in danger because of timed bombing, assassinations and planned attacks. Not using torture only makes it difficult for National Security to attain information because nobody would be afraid of the treatment they would receive from withholding important information and not only making it difficult but the process of attaining the information without using torture would take longer and for all we know there could be a ticking bomb. Torture is an advanced interrogation technique and people need to understand this. The world is developing and techniques will always change and become better just like technology does.
In this regard, VIP’s security detail has to be up to task to protect the leaders of their countries. To ensure this, VIP’s security details have been trained on various responses as far as terrorism threats are concerned (Keeney & Von Winterfeldt, 2010). In this paper, a number of such threats on country leaders are examined while outlining security details’ potential response to each of the threat. 2. Terrorism threats and VIP’s security detail potential responses Given the recent attacks on world leaders and civilians, a number of threats have been categorized differently.
Thus, if an actor wishes to change the stance of another actor it will do so by influencing their opinion. The importance of terrorist groups is unquestionable; their impact is greater in parts of the country where the government is at its lowest. What role do these groups have on politics? The importance can be seen in many different states. The rise of terrorist groups is most known to be established when a weak government is unable to sustain itself and thus it opens up to anyone willing to take the power.
Thomas Jefferson, one of the greatest revolutionary thinkers that ever existed, believed in the power of rebellion. He reasoned that conflict between government and the people occurred naturally. Jefferson “ hold[s] it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing” because he believes it to be “as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” This deep quote relates to the theme of conflict since conflicts between governments and their people lead to rebellions. Furthermore, this quote indicates that conflict plays an important role in society even at the national level. While many people do not consider the positive side of conflict, a wise Jefferson realized its power to prevent oppressive rulers from rising.
Clearly, the problems will not be invincible forever, but putting an effort into stopping them for the time being will be worth it. “Every realist knows that the democratic way of life is at this moment being directly assailed in every part of the world…. The assailants are still on march, threatening other nations, great and small.” (Roosevelt). Roosevelt points out how not only are they targeting the United States, but other countries as well. If we were to fight in World War II, we would be helping out nations.
United States Army General George S Patton famously said: “It is better to fight for something than live for nothing”. Fighting for ones ideals is a righteous and a dangerous game played by many around the world. Usually fighting for ones ideals or what one thinks is right is regarded as heroic and something to be aspired to. However, in many cases the longer and harder one fights for their principles the more they can become misguided and lose sight of their goals or their values. This is clearly seen in the article Mission Gone Wrong by Mattathias Schwartz, in this article Schwartz paints a picture of the United States’ War on Drugs asking the critical question: why are we still fighting this war?
This is due to their profound influence, and financial power to establish new investments. On the other end, local civilians present the demographic group that usually assumes the most deprived position in the mix. As such, eminent domain is a practice that generates significant questioning of the moral compass and, and ethical foundations upon which the leadership of The United states is founded (Baude, p 34). Finally, different states in America are governed by different sets of rules and legislations. This aspect renders eminent domain a major causal aspect of legislation controversies, as eminent domain presents a profound basis for litigation, which affects peace, harmony and unity of the United States as country.
One of these incidents entailed the US intervention in the civil war in Somalia and the Iraq War in 2003. Even though the US military suffered a catastrophic loss, it helped send a message to the Alshabaab terror group. In this incident, the US intervention was mainly driven by the humanitarian need to assist innocent civilians caught in the fight between government forces and a terror organization. Additionally, the Multinational Force in Lebanon which involved British, Italian, French, and American intervention in Lebanon are other incidents since the second world war when the US has intervened and acted as a policeman of the world. Their response was aimed at ending the civil strife that was almost culminating in a full-blown war.
Concealed guns are allowing the public to overcome the dangers in the world, but they are also a danger in many ways. These dangers have lead to many horrific accidents in our present time. These incidents are also causing more people around the world to join in on these events. Concealed guns should be banned because by permitting handguns, it can end up causing more crimes, dangerous people are more likely to carry a gun and endanger the public, and guns can make the public paranoid. A possible concern is threatening weapons that are used too often when a person is causing a crime.
There has to be more research done in order to identify the reason behind the bombing. Governor Cuomo states that this violent incident will not let Americans live in fear. As a result, the bombing is making the presidential candidates to demonstrate their qualities of leadership. The bomb attack is a reason why many view the United States an unsafe place. Terrorism has always been one of the biggest problems the
It is hard to tell but the biggest problem in society to day is the use of “self defense” and violence by police officers. According to the Catechism, “armed forces are servants of the security and freedom of nations.” This is true but sometimes, police officers use violence because of racism or just because. Another part that challenges people to question the morality of our society is the “just war” doctrine. The outlined circumstances of just war are reasonable. What happens when we just go to war for a non-just reason.
Military Presence From the United States There are many measures we must take and sacrifices we must make to ensure the safety and comfort within our nation, however, sometimes we must look at the precautions we are taking and wonder whether or not our methods are effective, reasonable, or even ethical. Although we need to protect our country, war and a strong military presence create more violence, communication barriers, and havoc than necessary or ideal. In the world today, the United States already has a strong military presence in foreign countries and within the borders of our own, but this often interferes with other political and public affairs and does more harm than good, such as delaying communications between nations and keeping
Suspects commit crimes and often the victims are left wondering why the suspect’s rights seem to be more important than those of the victim. It does seem like an unfair game, the bully gets afforded everything, the victim left to suffer. In order for the justice system of the United States to stay the most balanced and civil rights friendly system in the world; suspects’ rights have to be respected and guarded so chaos doesn’t take over. Police officers through the years have gotten better with training and experience, guidance by prosecutors, and increased motivations to “do the right thing” to ensure suspects are processed correctly, and interrogated within the constraints of the U.S. Constitution. Seeing a conviction through to the end, the suspect afforded all protections under the law, and the victims seeing closure is the ultimate testament to how far law enforcement interrogations have come since Miranda.
People also “...support the rights of hunters, sport shooters, and recreational gunmen.” (openreader.org).Criminals are already breaking the law, so adding more won 't deter them. “Criminals will get hold of guns – indeed, by definition, if guns are outlawed, one becomes a criminal just by acquiring one – and leave non-criminals more vulnerable than ever.” (bigthink.com). Gun control laws do not help deter, and only slightly inconvenience them. Guns are a high trade item in the US, so there are definitely many other illegal sources. Also making strict gun laws takes power from the people.
