Just war theory: Iraq and Afghanistan

Because of the inevitable difficulties of waging war in the Middle East, many Americans have called the wars waged in Afghanistan and Iraq 'unjust wars.' But unjust wars and wars that are hard to win are not the same thing. Those who would take issue with the justice of waging war in Iraq and Afghanistan must first consider the "Principles of Just War Theory" (2009).

The core contentions of Just War Theory are as follows:

"A just war can be started only in defense against violent aggression.

The only just intention is to restore a just peace -- just, that is, to friend and foe alike.

Military force must be the last…. [read more]

Just and Unjust USA War Against Afghanistan Term Paper

… Terrorism

There are a number of ways to interpret terrorist attacks in the modern world. The Bush administration has chosen a particular perspective that is intended to justify the employment of the United States military as a tool for rooting out terrorism in general. However, there are many difficulties with the logical backing for such a position; the way terrorism is understood, and the sources of terrorism have been largely misconstrued. Many people have put forward criticisms of the White House's outlook -- some from particularly visible individuals -- and an equal number of alternative approaches to terrorism have been offered. but, fundamentally, terrorism needs to be understood as a means of waging warfare; usually adopted by those who possess significant strategic and militaristic shortcomings.….

War in Afghanistan From Different Theoretical Perspectives Research Paper

… Theoretical Perspectives on the War in Afghanistan

As the sun rose over New York and Washington D.C. On what began as a quite, pristine, lovely early fall, beginning of September morning, the citizens of New York, the nation's capital, the United States and indeed the global community were unaware of the magnitude of horror that would befall not only these two illustrious cities but how these actions would alter the geo-political landscape for years to come. The actions of September 11th, 2001 did more to change the very nature of international relations than any other global event-save for World War II and the dropping of the Atomic Bomb. Although one could argue that September 11th, 2001 influenced the evolution of geo-politics more than either WWII…. [read more]

War on Drugs Moral and Economic Arguments Essay

… War on Drugs

Moral and Economic Arguments on Both Sides of the War on Drugs

Today's Americans are obsessed with war. War with Iraq, war in Afghanistan, and war among the nations of Asia and the Middle East are all common topics on the lips of Americans discussing politics. Still, many forget that one old war is still raging, a war that has been overshadowed by the Vietnam war, the Cold War, the Korean War, and three Wars in the Middle East. Although occasionally a conflict of arms, this war has primarily been fought with law enforcement and incarceration, with politics and civil rights law, in town halls and among the D.C. lobbyists. This war is the War on Drugs. Founded in 1971 by President…. [read more]

Normal I Offer. Why? Essay

… Even with the fact that it would be difficult to determine why a powerful community would be interested to organize a false flag event during the London Olympics, it is only safe to assume that these individuals are concerned about securing their position in society by coming to possess important resources and by focusing on influencing the international public in supporting their actions. While these actions seem absurd in the present, they are probable to seem less irresponsible as matters progress and as the masses come to concentrate on punishing imagined terrorists.

John Perkins' "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" provides a lot of information regarding how powerful international bodies try to remove unjust rulers from around the world and concerning how they put across benevolent…. [read more]

George W. Bush Administration Policy on Syria Essay

… Syria

An Analysis of the U.S.-Syrian Conflict

This paper will analyze the G.W. Bush Administration's justification for conflict with Syria and show how the disparate reasons of internal organs within the White House and those offered to the public by way of the national press suggest that an ulterior motive much broader in scope and ideological in nature was (and is) actually the basis for justification. In doing so, this paper will utilize Conflict Theory to help bring into perspective the opposing rationales that are presented throughout the analysis.

The Bush Administration had very clear reasons for initiating conflict with Syria, outlined by such neo-conservative think tanks as the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) (members of which were highly placed in the Administration…. [read more]

War in Iraq Focuses Term Paper

… Hence, the war against Iraq is unjust not because there exist no legitimate reasons for the waging of war but because a war is ethically incorrect. War aims at destroying not only the people, but also the economy, trade and family ties of a country too. "Today, comparisons of the Iraq war to Vietnam are growing louder and steady reports of American troops killed on the battlefield are having a corrosive effect on public opinion of President George W. Bush" (Lester). Thus people should become familiarized with the future prospects of war and try to condemn it as much as possible.

Winston Smith, the Protagonist in Orwell's 1984 Essay

… Winston Smith, the protagonist in Orwell's 1984, exemplifies the struggle of the autonomous individual within an oppressive state-run society. Despite the fact that Smith works for the state as a government censor, he realizes that oppressive control by state authorities is incompatible with happiness and fulfillment in human life. Eventually, Smith becomes interested in the true historical facts that are his job to alter and searches for the truth. He is apprehended by the authorities for plotting against them, tortured, and sent for re-education. The author's principal message is that government control and censorship are antithetical to healthy human societies.

The topic chosen is 'Is the War on Terrorism an example of 'Post-Modern Warfare?' being one that is very relevant to today's world, it deals with the causative factor behind the 'war on terrorism' that was declared by the United States of America after the attacks on some of its main centers on September 11, 2001, executed by a group of Islamic militants identified as 'Al-Quaeda', and the post-modern warfare that has resulted out of the entire episode.

Morality of the George Bush Term Paper

… A war justified with falsehoods, conceived in confusion, and carried out in arrogance has now degenerated into chaos. Yet the war's neoconservative defenders still cite Iraq as the archetypal action in America's mission of freedom

Bush's claim that the war in Iraq is about freedom is nothing more than a smokescreen to the public to hide the fact that he is using millions of dollars in American tax dollars to promote the attack against political figures who did not get along with his father. His quest for personal vendetta has failed to provide the happiness that he promised the American people when he took office.

"If Iraq is the best example of the Bush doctrine, pre-emptive and mostly unilateral war has become the preferred means…. [read more]

Extraordinary Rendition Refers to the Practice Research Paper

… Extraordinary Rendition refers to the practice of transferring terror suspects from one country to another by means that bypass all judicial due process. After their secret transfer to selected countries, which do not care much for human rights or the due process, the suspects are subjected to brutal interrogation methods to gather information. Most such 'renditions' are initiated by the United States, although they are tacitly approved by several U.S. allies, and the objective is to gather intelligence about international terrorist networks by whatever means necessary without judicial oversight. Although the rendition policy for forcible transportation of terror suspects to other countries was started by the Clinton administration during the 1990s, it has considerably expanded in scope under the Bush administration especially after the 9/11….

Logical Fallacy's on the Iraq War Research Paper

… Fallacies of the Iraq War: A Critical Examination

The Iraq War is an excellent example of a conflict involving a combination of assumptions, fallacies, and downright lies. Before the invasion, the plans were being laid to take over one of the world's richest oil fields and secure these and other resources for the U.S. And its interests abroad. The invasion of Iraq itself was conducted on shaky footing, and the reasons for invading the country and the justification for deposing its leader were changed multiple times from the beginning of the Bush Administration up until the end. The Iraq was can be viewed through many different sets of lenses, but Just War Theory as well as the UN charter shed light on many of the…. [read more]

Weapons of Mass Destruction Nuclear Term Paper

… Deterrence may only have worked in the Cold War because the United States had actually used nuclear weapons on a prior occasion. Waltz's assumption that deterrence was a success during the Cold War because neither the U.S. Nor the Soviet Union used nuclear weapons simply cannot be proven. In light of the September 11th attacks and what they teach us about precedents there is nothing to say we weren't just lucky. Conversely, Sagan's view only renders the world safe if everyone subscribes, voluntarily or otherwise. If anti-proliferation succeeds in getting all nuclear weapons destroyed, then every country in the world is at the mercy of the first one to renege on the anti-proliferation doctrine and successfully build and possess a nuclear weapon.

Feminists Critique of International Relations the Gendered Politics of International War and Peace Research Paper

… Gender and International Relations

International Relations in perspective

Gendered issues in the realm of International Relations have not been widely discussed, questioned or researched until recently, according to author Jill Steans. The reason for this lack of investigation into gender and International Relations, Steans explains, is not necessarily based on bias against females or chauvinism to any degree. To wit, historically, the study of International Relations has been focused on relationship between sovereign states, and since the "processes" and the "structures" of relations between states were not understood on the basis of gender, there seemed no link in that regard (Steans, 1998, p. 1)

. However, feminist scholars in the field of International Relations have in recent years pointed to the fact that while, "frequently…. [read more]

Global Refugee Regime Term Paper

… There are those who manage to get away from their native lands but do not attempt to cross their national borders and such people are termed "internal refugees." The UNHCR tries to cope with such refugees too, for instance, those who had to leave, due to the tension in 1992, from Transdniesteria. The UNHCR indulges in other activities too. Besides providing a secure place and help to such people it joins hands with the many aid agencies and non-governmental organizations to bring to the attention of the world the hindrances and problems faced by internal and international refugees.

The UNHCR supports and helps millions of refugees. The number of refugees keeps increasing by the day and the various crises have done nothing but to add…. [read more]

Morally There Is No Difference Between Killing Essay

… Morally There Is No Difference Between Killing Civilians With Bombs From Military Aircraft and Blowing Them Up With Bombs

Morally, is there a difference between killing civilians with bombs from military aircraft and blowing them up with bombs?

The central question of this paper raises some complex moral as well as practical and legal issues. On the one hand there is certain, if somewhat spurious, validity to the argument that justifies civilian deaths in a military action as a result of "collateral damage." The bombing of civilians in an anti-terrorist action is commonly seen in a different and more positive moral and ethical light to the actions of the terrorist or terrorist group who purposely set out to harm or terrorize innocent people by detonating….

Islam Radicalization Essay

… Islam Radicalization

The Radicalization of Islam

The forces of economic, political and religious distinction which have driven a wedge between the Western World and the Arab world are steeped in a long history of divergent interests. The conflict as we know it today, largely waged between the United States and such long-standing allies as the United Kingdom and Australia, is the fallout of centuries of subjugation, exploitation and occupation. The colonial forces of Europe and the United States exist on a continuum within which Arab states and cultures, once themselves a dominant and imperial global entity, have developed both historical and modern motives for violent and militant resistance. These motives relate as much to a sense of political resentment as they do to a belief…. [read more]

Accusations of Ignorance Term Paper

… ' The European community wanted to take into consideration the feelings and motivation of those who attacked us. In Arundhati Roy's article challenging the U.S.'s approach to responding to the trade center attack in kind, as an act of war, he accused the U.S. Of rushing to judgment. He says "America is at war against a people it doesn't know, because they do not appear on the television." (p. 429) In other words, Mr. Roy is accusing the Americans as being ignorant, and knowing nothing more than what appears on the telly. According to Mr. Roy, our myopic view of the world is matched only by our bullying shortsightedness by which we think we can push the world around. "The trouble (with America) is, that…. [read more]

Role of Islam Term Paper

… Even if different in appearance, the resemblance between the decorations used in a mosque in Afghanistan for example and a mosque in Spain are obvious. Why is that? One of the obvious reasons could be that, as is the case with law, art is in itself an expression of religion and the principles by which religion governs, among them unity and unicity (of God), can find their place in artistic manifestation as well. Islam art can indeed reveal the inherent religiousness of art.

The unity of Islamic art directly relates to the unity God in Islam. Otherwise, we cannot possibly explain the common cement that links artistic expressions in places that are geographically so far away from each other. But we must consider the fact…. [read more]

Roots of Terrorism in the Middle East Term Paper

… Roots of Terrorism in the Middle East

When individuals inhabit the same space, conflicts often occur. But it's only when conflicts degenerate into harsh violence of any sort that the issue truly becomes a problem, threatening the stability of a peaceful cohabitation. A conflict often has its origin in a dispute over resources, over something of great interest for more than one party. Usually conflicts appear when the object of interest cannot be shared in an acceptable way for all parties involved, without any of them feeling left out or treated unequally. it's enough for one party to consider a lack of fairness in a dispute. The birthplace of violence between two "players" is, in most cases, a conflict, an unresolved argument over a source…. [read more]

Why America Cannot Leave Iraq Thesis

… Iraq Exit

No Exit: America's Responsibility and Need to Remain in Iraq

The War in Iraq began on March 19th, 2003, when American bombers began a 'Shock and Awe' campaign designed to 'decapitate' Iraqi Republican Army leadership and to pound the civilian population into preemptive submission. The attack preceded the arrival of a deadline by which despot Saddam Hussein had been given the ultimatum to vacate Iraq with his sons to make way for democratic reform or to face the wrath of the United States. The purpose of this invasion was proposed quite singularly as the disruption of a regime which 'could' aid terrorists in destroying the United States, its friends and its allies. The final justification for this war was that, to that end,…. [read more]
