Decision about whether to capture or kill a terrorist leaders is dependent upon the goals that the states aim to achieve. Capturing of a terrorist leader depicts the thought that he is a criminal authorised to a legal hearing. On the other hand, killing him is treating him as a challenger to the state’s peace. Thus this settlement depends upon the counterterrorism policies created by national rulers. With the emergence of the topic of decapitation, certain questions occupy our minds regarding the merits, demerits and effectiveness of this method of ending terrorist groups.
They use violence to have a change in politics. The similarity between terrorists and criminals is their target. They do not think about which one is combatant or which one is civilians. They do their action to anyone; they attack both combatant and civilians. The example about terrorist is the Bali bombing in 2002.
This last case was full of seriousness. Many innocent people got killed because of this conflict between the government and the Islamic extremist group. When religious and cultural extremists get involved with the politics or capture the state power, it can definitely lead to a global security threat. It is because the extremists can use all of the sources or power over that certain state as much as they
Malcolm X was a man with great controversy. Many thought he was a powerful speaker with great ability to influence others. Others believed this was a tremendous threat to the Nation of Islam and individuals who disagreed with his philosophy. Malcolm X was killed by two black gunmen from the Nation of Islam just before giving a speech at Audubon. Despite many people’s concerns that Malcolm X was dangerous, the assassination of Malcolm X was unjust because of the work he did to achieve civil rights for African Americans and was a result of a power struggle within the Nation of Islam.
Terrorism is a huge problem in the United States and all around the world. It is a federal offense that ends with the death penalty--or at least it should. In fact, the exact definition of terrorism is, “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” From a worldly perspective, Batman represents the government, and the Joker represents terrorists. Since the government should put terrorists to death, Batman should do the same to the Joker. It’s crazy how society takes more action on imaginary scenarios rather than real-life situations.
Throughout the years it’s often quoted that “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”. The characteristics that define terrorists are if an organisation is attacking specific groups, committing violence, wanting to change government policies and they do not form part of the government structure. The Irish Republican Army covered all these characteristics, in 1972 the IRA set off 22 bombs in Belfast within a space of an hour. The IRA also declared that their fight was not aimed at innocent victims but focused on government officials or anyone who worked or was linked to Government. The reason for these scare tactics was to force the end the British rule in Northern Ireland.
Religious classifications are done so as an act of terror to break down people in spite of fear. A common classification of religions is that Muslims are terrorist, since 9/11 people have viewed all Muslims and people of Arabic decent to be extremists and terrorists. Classifying all Muslims as terrorist is an accusation that diminishes the view of Americans by foreigners. Religious classification do not just fall upon Muslims. Christians, Jews, Jehovah Witnesses, and so on all face different classifications based of their beliefs and traditions.
Countries such as the Syrian government has overused their military force by using banned chemical weapons against their civilians. Indifference when the United States performed the mission of killing the most dangerous terrorist in the world. Military force should be justified
Torture is a topic that has come under intense scrutiny and debate regarding whether there are any circumstances in which it should be employed, and if its is absolute legal ban should not be protected and respected. Recently, terrorism has brought to the public 's eye the violent tactics used by terrorist, against humanity. The September 11 terrorist attacks, in the New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, lead to the passing of the "Patriot Act" when George Bush signed a secret finding empowering CIA to "Capture, Kill, or Interrogate Al-Queda Leaders"( Bush, 2001:). The most predicted and widely publicized
According to Paul Ratner, he gives a list of conspiracy theories and background information about them. There is a conspiracy theory that involved with 9/11. We have gained knowledge that the 9/11 was a terrorist attack but the conspiracy theory is that it was an inside job. Conspiracy theorists say that the U.S. government planned the
He will use his power as commander of the armed forces to directly deploy troops onto the terrorist, route them out, and kill them. The option of deploying the armed forces is used to circumvent the requirement of congress to declare war. While, if the president were able to move beyond this action, he will openly declare war on the terrorist and avenge Anderson’s murder with the full support of congress. 2.) The financial system has
As we learned in week 1, the Boston Marathon Bombers set of two bombs killing several people and injuring even more. They also killed an MIT Police Officer. Both of the Boston Marathon Bombers had emigrated from Chechnya to the United States. One of the brother’s girlfriends had reported an increased interest in radical Islam, and he took a trip to Russia that concerned the Russian FSB prior to the bombing (DHS, CIA, DOJ, 2014). Chechnya is a country that has become somewhat known for Islamic Terrorism, and it could be speculated that the brother may have taken some interest in terrorism while visiting his
Osama bin Laden this monster and formal leader of the Taliban and the major influence to start the plan of hijack planes and drive them into the twin towers. This man in his home country was renowned as a hero. This was a man who had nothing to lose but everything to gain. Osama would plan terror attack on some of the tourist for not believing in his ideologies. He was on top of the terrorist world he could not be stop.
As time elapsed from September 11, 2001, the public began to break ideas about who was to blame for the attacks on September 11. A vast majority believed that the 9/11 attacks were solely to blame from the Islamist radical group, Al-Qaeda, a terrorist regime that sought to rebel against western civilization norms and enact their hate among the United States. The other idea, which is highly noted as a conspiracy theory, was that government knew the terrorist attacks were likely to happen and the only reason the government took a back seat was to conduct a reason to mobilize troops into the war-riddled Middle East. Whether the public believed either or, a paranoia was created, later to be recognized as Post-9/11 Paranoia. This paranoia would harbor certain ideals in American brains, creating a specific view and caution for certain areas, actions and personnel.
