According to FBI statistics, Operation Cross Country X recovered 82 underage victims and arrested 239 perpetrators across the country In October 2016. (Zhai) If an international organization, in its largest numbers since 2016, found that many perpetrators and victims in just a small amount of time, then they can surely find more in the following years. The Spartacus III operation uncovered over 2,700 victims and made 134 arrests in South and Central America in 2016. With 25 countries involved in this operation alone, it’s no wonder all of those traffickers were caught and the victims liberated.
Everyday ISIS bombs small countries in order to spread terror. Today ISIS bombed Turkish soldiers in Syria. ISIS has sent multiple threats to the US. The US army acts as the hero for our allies. The US is very loyal to our allies.
The argument used by many death penalty advocates is that it serves to deter other violent criminals and murderers from committing such vicious acts themselves. Dating back to the early 1600s, the first recorded death sentence was carried out on Captain George Kendall in 1608 (Reggio). Kendall was killed by a firing squad for allegedly spying on America for the Spanish government (Reggio). This was the first of many executions by either a firing squad, hanging, asphyxiation, lethal gas, electrocution or lethal injection. Despite these horrific methods, Americans should support the death penalty because it demonstrates the power of the United States court system, serves as a warning to other offenders, protects citizens, and can bring a sense of peace to the families and friends of the
We can all agree that guns are to be used for protection, yet somehow not everyone sees it that way. The corruption and power hunger that comes along with owning a gun has set a fear in the hearts of millions of Americans. Why
Maybe it is because they feared John Brown. Who knows the true reason why? However, as there is no “set in stone” definition of terrorism, and John Brown was not trying to create fear like most terrorist, I think of him as a freedom fighter. Now, some may argue the fact that John Brown is indeed a terrorist because he murdered many people, just as a terrorist would. Though he did murdered many people, this does not instantly make him terrorist.
According to the ATF, there are approximately 55,000 licensed gun dealers in the US plus 8,000 pawn shops with licenses to sell them. With so many stores to sell these guns, it makes it almost impossible to control them each. Who knows how many of these stores lets anyone get away with a gun without a license or background checks. This goes into the idea that these shop owners should also go through a background check and license renewal every year or so, to guarantee genuineness. Not only is it the type of situation which can’t be cured entirely, it can be slowed down, which is why we need better precautions for people buying these
The army have many roles ranging from carpenter to infantry solider and even to Bricklayer. Throughout history the army has effected society both for the good and the bad even though it may not directly link to society it still effects it on a daily basis and has done for years. One effect the army as had on society is when the cold war happened, the effects of which still effect society today. Effects such as both USA and the Soviet Union built up huge arsenals of atomic (nuclear) weapons. This causes people to live in fear that another cold war may happen due to both sides having them still.
Other groups around the world have repeatedly proven their proficiency in manufacturing and using Molotov cocktails. Assassination. Assassination was the earliest tactic used by terrorists.

Diplomats and politicians have always been the
The shifting concentration of global terrorist activity can be seen in the following map. Terrorism post-9/11 has been concentrated in predominantly Muslim countries as a result of radical Islamic ideologies and sectarian
U.S. drone strikes come with risks. They can kill innocent civilians, they can undermine the authority of other nations, and they grant the president the power to assassinate anyone he deems is a terrorist threat abroad, without any authorization. For all the controversy surrounding the drone attacks they have one thing going for them. They are effective and the alternatives are not. Since 2013, President Obama has greatly expanded the use of drones, deploying more than 360 strikes, which is up nearly 50 from the Bush administration.
The killing of the Al-Qaeda leader, which is a Radical Islamic Terrorist Group, founded in the 1980 's by Osama Bin Laden, was a huge justice in the U.S. and other countries. Bin Laden posed a global threat to the countries where Islam is not implemented, he was responsible for the September, 11th attacks back in 2001. He orchestrated it, and had it planned for months, he was planning more attacks on the U.S. after 9/11 as well. ("The World Trade Center History.")
These full body scanners, which Chertoff had a hand in getting into the airports, were “heavily criticized (and little tested)”, and were sold by a company which was a client of Chertoff’s consulting agency (Turley, 3). Another example is Dick Cheney. He was the CEO of Halliburton, a company associated with numerous U.S. war scandals, prior to holding the office of Vice-President. How telling is it that “the company (Halliburton) made $217,199 in campaign contributions in 2004, and in the same year was awarded $8 billion in military contracts” (Newton, 229). According to Turley, hundreds of billions of dollars annually go towards the cost of war, the taxpayers’ money flowing into the arms industry’s pocket, and those agencies and contractors are trying to keep it that way.
