Terrorism in the Book Dying Term Paper

… Ultimately, it would be helpful to prevent terrorism before it erupts by listening and responding to politically disenfranchised groups before the conflict becomes too long and drawn out.

Some types of terrorism occur not by nebulous non-state actors such as Al Qaeda but by officially recognized state powers. When governments commit acts of terror, the word terrorism is sometimes not even used because legitimacy is inferred. However, in the case with Syria, the government can easily be referred to as a terrorist organization even if it operates officially. Because terrorism is always political, it does not matter whether or not the state or a non-state organization perpetrates the terrorist acts. The responses to terrorism will always be similarly structured, targeting the root causes and preventing…. [read more]

Blood Diamonds in Africa Research Paper

… Blood Diamonds

The Prologue in Greg Campbell's book Blood Diamonds: Tracing The Deadly Path of the World's Most Precious Stones is not for the faint hearted. In fact this book isn't for the person who is squeamish or finds graft, torture, violence, greed and terror discomforting. Like other strife-torn cultures and violent situations in Africa in 2009, the Sierra Leone of 2002, reflected all the horrors of classic African civil wars. But ironically the Sierra Leone of 2002 also reflected the glittering wealth that power and diamonds can produce.

The Economics of Diamonds: The story of how one company took over the mining and the marketing of diamonds is told very thoroughly by Campbell. That company is De Beers, and having been established in 1888…. [read more]

Culture of Fear Created by the Global War on Terrorism Essay

… For instance, Moore emphasizes that, "When I say there is no terrorist threat, I am not saying that there are no terrorists, or that there are no terrorist incidents, or there won't be other terrorist incidents in the future" (p. 96). Indeed, Moore concedes that not only are there terrorists seeking to harm America and its interest at home and abroad, he also acknowledges that these actors have already inflicted serious harm and can be reasonably expected to continue to do so in the future. In this regard, Moore adds that, "There ARE terrorists, they HAVE committed evil acts, and, tragically they will commit acts of terror in the not-too-distant future" (p. 96).

Nevertheless, simply because Americans have a statistically miniscule chance of being a…. [read more]

Earth Liberation Front (Elf) Case Study

… The ELF has been able to carry out its operations in an effective manner because of having a decentralized controlling body with no leader or hierarchy of command structure. Additionally, working underground and having autonomous members are the key benefits due to which the movement cannot be completely discontinued. Even if the counter-terrorist agencies infiltrate or capture one of their cells, the movement would continue its operations because of having no formal structure (Leader & Probst, 2003).

The ELF movement works and operates in support of various other network groups. Since no formal membership is offered to the individuals, the estimation of the total number of people involved with the group becomes complicated and difficult. However, from the records, it has come to notice that…. [read more]

Making of a Suicide Bomber Term Paper

… ¶ … Suicide Bomber

History of suicide Bombing.

The history of suicide missions can be traced as far as the days of Samson the Jew, retrieved from the Holy Bible in the book of Judges. Therein is found the story of Samson, a Jewish superman who killed himself by bringing down the philistines temple in order to kill thousands of philistines. This happened after he was subdued and grossly physically disfigured and even lost the eyes, this led to deep anger and when he was brought before a multitude to be teased and insulted more, he asked God for power to break down the pillars of the building and die with the Philistines. He killed in the name of God.

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]

Feared Terrorist Acts Research Paper

… According to reports, not only were 86 cars destroyed but also the blast contributed in making hundreds of people homeless after the attack. Not less to mention those injured by the bombings, the survivors also suffered a huge loss in terms of losing their loved ones and their properties. In addition, the psychological affects that they bore soon after the attack and years after the incident accounted for much destruction in both tangible and intangible forms. The blast was reported to have a weight of 5000 pounds as aimed by McVeigh and was heard up to 89 kilometers from the spot of occurrence (Rappoport, Pg.178).

Reported casualties after the blast:

Sources gathered sufficient and reliable information of the blast and reported that at the time…. [read more]

Pastoral Care Emergencies Book Review

… ¶ … Pastoral Care Emergencies

In the following review, this author will review Pastoral Care Emergencies by David K. Switzer (2000). We will see how the author reshaped and spurred thinking about ministry and pastoral care in the present post-modern culture. We will also see how his thoughts have reshaped and sharpened pastoral identity, awareness, and development in the present day and have become standard fare. His work has become cutting edge for pastoral care that translates flowery sermons into saintly examples for members of the flock to follow and rally around. The book is highly practical in approach, but still extremely sensitive to the theological issues at hand in ministering to those experiencing great emotional, mental, and physical distress.

Included in this review will…. [read more]

Mikhail Lermontov's a Hero Book Review

… Russia, a country that today poses so many questions that are still to be answered, a country that would not let go of its right to control regions and peoples that were formerly part of the Soviet Union, needs to be understood in its complexities starting with its domestic and foreign relations.

The Fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Soviet Union made the world hope that Russia will finally join the democratic world on its way to tip the balance toward the benefits freedom and capitalism in the context of globalization and against an increasingly stronger growing enemy: terrorism. The last twenty years witnessed a Russia that was torn apart by violence, the rise of the nationalistic political forces, the war…. [read more]

Hidden War: A Russian Journalist Book Report

… The weak areas of the book are that there were only descriptions of two brief actions in the book, one was in the first few chapters and the other was at the end of the story. Besides this, Borovik goes on and on about bloodshed, nightmares, and the countless horrors of war he personally witnessed, but makes it less interesting because he fails to give any details. This makes its less imaginative for the reader.

Originally, the book was written in Russian, since it was written primarily for the people who had been living in a society without freedom of the press. This book broke all barriers when Borovik wrote the story about how Moscow was not telling the truth about the war, and also…. [read more]

Ernest Gaines - A Lesson Term Paper

… " "I think that's a very good reading," Gaines replied to the question. "I think you have read very well."

The interviewer also mentions the character "Marcus Payne" in Gaines' novel, Of Love and Dust: "On the one hand, he is very egocentric and individualistic. But, on the other hand, he cannot be broken or defeated. He has created his own way of resistance which makes him really likeable." Gaines replied: "I feel [that Marcus] is a rebel, a troublemaker, but I love him. I created him." And that resistance, which was discussed earlier in the paper, could also be the novelist using a character's resistance as a kind of metaphor for all the resistance there was in the south during the period, in the….

Disassociation, Personality Disorders, and Global Research Paper

… Though there are many more ways to communicate, social & communication intelligences are declining at staggering rates. It is completely possible to function with minimal or no face-to-face contact with people; it is completely possible to live one's life and never leave one's home as demonstrated by the Furni scene in Fight Club and the fact that Cesar lives his life behind prison walls (but really within the confines of a cryogenic pod) in Abre Los Ojos. Thus, what is at stake with this research and discussion are the re-articulation of and improvement upon the human condition.

The climax of Fight Club and the related film reveal threads connecting capitalism, consumer culture, deviant or criminal behavior, and mental instability. At the climax of Fight Club,…. [read more]

Impressions of War the Most Vivid Imagine Essay

… Impressions of War

The most vivid imagine of war was the beginning of it all. September 11, 2001 changed the United States. It was vividly relived over and over again in the media and in the newspaper. There was this sense that the nation's spirit had been broken and there was no room to live innocently. There were plenty of young individuals, both male and female, that either got summoned or volunteered to go and fight this war on terrorism. It began in the United States with the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington DC. Although we did not really know it at the time, this was the first image of war and it was the…. [read more]

Tom Shulich ("Coltishhum") a Comparative Chapter

… 40).

Thus, from the perspective of the bottom rung of Indian society, it is Lapierre's contention that the self/other dichotomy if not fully eradicated, at least becomes practically irrelevant. Lapierre's slum dwellers refuse to entertain invidious distinctions between self and other. The familiar as well as the stranger, the healthy and the diseased, the old and the young -- all are taken in and cared for in one big, harmonious community of the urban poor. In a society of unfortunates who all must struggle simply to survive against great odds, no one is rejected "marginal." The denizens of Calcutta's slums, Lapierre tells us, "had reconstructed the life of their villages in urban exile" (p. 41).

History of Pakistan and India Term Paper

… The League' won 76% of the vote for reserved Muslim seats, but still partition was not inevitable. However, the British were forced to leave by a huge rebellion from the end of 1945 to 1946 that surpassed even the Quit India Movement.

In 1945 the British authorities put on trial Indian National Army prisoners who were Hindu, a Muslim and a Sikh together for the first trial. This led to country wide protests with massive inter-communal unity, especially in Calcutta where strikes and riots went on for months.

The British cabinet was convinced that India must be surrendered now, especially with the changing economic and international situation and the Second World War. Towards the end of the war Britain was in debt to India -…. [read more]

Journal Exercise 3.1A: Addressing Love and Loss

I have left someone without knowing when I would see them again. It was a relationship that was very important to me, but it was, ultimately, one that I knew was not going to work in the long run. I still loved this person. I felt so sad to know that I might not see them again, but I felt that there was no other way. They asked me to reconsider the relationships, to give it another chance -- which was the most painful part. I wanted them to see things like I did. I wanted them to be okay with what was happening, because then, in some way, I would feel better.

Power of Big Brother Term Paper

… ¶ … controversy over governmental power and the centralized government under the Bush Administration has provoked significant debate within congress and the world. Most specifically, the Bush administration has been criticized for taking a Big Brother approach to governance. In America 2014: An Orwellian Tale by unheralded author Dawn Blair, the author carefully portrays a world that sequels the acclaimed 1984 Orwell story. He shows us what it would be like to live in a world dominated by censorship and overbearing government control. The world is currently faced with the struggle for freedom, not only political freedom, but freedom and access to information. The Bush administration has repeated been humiliated within the press for their disparity between truth and fabrication. Blair's tale along with 1984…. [read more]

Born to Die Term Paper

… But this display military might was a concerted and active effort, unlike the unintentional incursions of disease, and may have been more easily resisted, at least on an intellectual level, by the Indian and indigenous population had the population not been so decimated and the seeming imperviousness of Europeans to disease not seemed so frightening. Disease was not a willed instrument of terror, initially, because the European populations knew nothing of germs, and had developed a substantial level of toleration of immune resistance to the pervasive bacteria that affected the native populations. But once disease came, it affected political development and political and intellectual views the two groups had of one another.

Noble David Cook makes an interesting analogy between incursions by the political and…. [read more]

Angola and Sierra Leone Blood Term Paper

… Their crime? The theft of some rudimentary mining equipment" (Tom Rawstorne, p.36).

The United Nations attempted to investigate and evaluate the connection between Sierra Leone diamonds and weapons. The resulting report stated a number of steps and initiatives to be taken including some sanctions on the crime infested timber, diamond industry and aircraft registry which is responsible for the supply of arms throughout the continent. Such systems take time to be formulated and enforced. They are hard to control and the ease with which illegal diamonds can seep into the legal line makes it more difficult to control. Even today "The RUF continues to hold the diamond areas. Weapons continue to flow in through Liberia" (Ian Smillie, p.24). It is really important for Sierra Leone…. [read more]

Patriotism Start? Term Paper

… God, for example, is served and honored in different ways throughout the world. Some assume that going to church four times a day is a proper way to worship God and that anybody who does not practice religion as fervently is an atheist or a Communist. But religion, very much as patriotism, is a personal thing: everybody can worship in their own way. Everybody can choose to manifest their love, for God or their country, in different ways. Who is to judge whether an action is patriotic or unpatriotic?

I have chosen to have this discussion because the issue of the journalists deemed unpatriotic because of their articles revolves right around these points-of-view. The journalists were deemed unpatriotic by a team of politicians, among them…. [read more]

Canada's Relationship to the United States in Margaret Atwood's Surfacing Term Paper

… Canadian Nationalism & Margaret Atwood

Canada's Relationship to the U.S. Vis-a-Vis Margaret Atwood's Surfacing

For Americans or Europeans who are oblivious to the justifiably pessimistic feelings many Canadians have toward the U.S. In particular and Western attitudes in general, reading Margaret Atwood's book Surfacing should serve as enlightenment. And if readers rationalize that Atwood's work is fictional so it probably isn't representative of how Canadians truly feel about their neighbors to the south - those readers would be, at some level wrong. Indeed, Atwood's is a critically acclaimed and brilliant novel which weaves Canadian nationalism themes, universal feministic themes - and strong ecological consciousness - into an appealing dramatic tapestry of drama and conflict. Meantime, this paper's task is to flush out metaphors deep in…. [read more]

Ethics of War: Justified Research Paper

… In this regard, Dagi cautions that, "It seems that the Assad regime is consuming itself with violence inflicted on its own people, but the question today is even when the regime gone what will remain of Syria? It is feared that a post-Assad Syria might plunge into another round of civil war" (5).

According to Recchia, the notion of justice after war and the fear of civil war in Syria may compel the international community in general and the United States in particular to take steps following the inevitable fall of the Assad regime to ensure social and political stability during the transition to a democratic state, but this a treacherously slippery slope. In this regard, Recchia advises, "Protracted international trusteeship over fragile war-torn societies…. [read more]

Horror Interviews Interview

… Horror

Dimitri is a fifteen-year-old boy whose parents moved to the United States four years ago from Russia. I selected Dimitri for this interview because he plays a lot of video games, and also watches a lot of film and television. I asked Dimitri how he defines "horror" and his answer was quite complex for someone his age. He did not know the German term das Unheimliche, but he gave me the Russian word, which is something like "Strashni." He explained to me that Russian culture likes to address the darkest themes in human consciousness, but that his parents find many of the movies he watches and the games he plays to be too disturbing. Dimitri says that the scariest things for him are the…. [read more]

Sir, on for your kind consideration I have done a research on the intervention strategies adopted by different cities adopted in the same situation that is prevalent in our area. I have come to conclusion that there is a need to adopt pulling levers strategy that includes problem-oriented policing methodology along with local community collaboration strategy to address this issue. Bellow is the detailed description of this strategy and the reasons for which I am recommending this strategy:

During the 20th century, police practice evolved from one of political corruption and incompetence to one of law enforcement and crime control. "The period from 1895-1920 was (one) of fragmented department that…. [read more]

Responding to Visuals Term Paper

… ¶ … Visuals

The first image appears on page 288 of Chapter Nine and is captioned as being "A still image from director Mel Gibson's the Passions of the Christ."

This image is a powerful yet common one. It is a photo of Jesus Christ dying on the cross, an iconic symbol that the Christian faith is founded on. Thus, as a Christian, this image creates a personal response as I know the story behind the image. However, even without a Christian background, this image is a universal symbol of pain and suffering and the unnecessary cruelty of humans against humans. This response comes from the fact that, regardless of background, Jesus is a symbol for peace and him being murdered a symbol of humanity's…. [read more]

Religion differs from magic in that it is not concerned with control or manipulation of the powers confronted.

Rather it means submission to, trust in, and adoration of, what is apprehended as the divine nature of ultimate reality.


I am I not a man and a brother?" (Windschuttle) was the slogan a black slave presented during the time the Enlightenment secularized Christian concepts produce the perception of a common human nature, along with universal human rights. Reconciling Christian morality with the rapacity of imperialism has reportedly been noted, however, to be "an impossible task." Christianity was initially…. [read more]

Binge Drinking Among College Students Term Paper

… Binge Drinking

The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism defines binge drinking as a pattern of drinking alcohol that brings blood alcohol concentration to 0.08 or above. This translates into five-plus drinks in two hours for men and four-plus drinks for women; a drink is defined as a half ounce of alcohol. Many may believe that the problem of binge drinking is limited to a few problem students. However, according to research from the Harvard School of Public Health, binge drinking occurs among two out of every five U.S. college students; half of them did so multiple times. The researchers, caution, "While the heaviest drinkers are at greatest risk for harm, they are relatively few and generate proportionately small amounts of all drinking-harms. The…. [read more]

Gun Ownership and Gun Control Term Paper

… (Youth Violence Statistics, Pg 2) In 2002, gang members were responsible for over three hundred homicides. (City Declares War on Gangs, Pg 2)

Gang culture - much like militia culture - revolves around respect for firearms. Gang members take a great deal of pride in their guns and they take pride in their killing. Violence by gang members in big cities is equivalent to war. It is not uncommon for non-gang affiliated bystanders to be hit by stray bullets in gun battles perpetrated by those involved in gangs. Youth gang members use their guns mercilessly, and unlike war they don't tend to take prisoners.

If guns were not available so easily, gang members would have a much harder time participating in violent activities. If guns…. [read more]

American Foreign Policy That Both Realists and Idealists Should Fall in Love Term Paper

… ¶ … Foreign Policy Idea to Fall in Love With

Robert Wright's 2006 article -- in summary -- does a thorough job of taking the George W. Bush foreign policies to task. By invading Iraq, Bush squandered the chance for the U.S. To gain respect in the world, Wright asserts, and Wright goes into great detail to justify his theory. But meantime, "realism" means basically what can be done in the world, and "idealism" is what is dreamed of and hoped for in the best of all possible worlds.

Wright explains that "progressive realism" has a "nice ring," and he begins with a coy remark, that if Democrats adopted his idea of "progressive realism" they might win a presidential election. Well, Mr. Wright, they did.…. [read more]
