War and Death Research Paper

… War and Death

When considering the causes and outcomes of war, oftentimes it can be helpful to compare and contrast seemingly disparate cases, because this comparison can often reveal underlying processes, strategies, and assumptions that would have remained hidden otherwise. This is why, for example, one may consider the United States' more recent occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan alongside its actions in the Korean War; though these cases are separated by a substantial expanse of time, examining the causes behind these conflicts as well as the effects reveals that the conception of warfare as a means of statecraft has not changed substantially in the intervening time. This leads one inevitably to reconsider the state of South and North Korea's relationship today, because these two actors…. [read more]

Social Impact of Cold War Essay

… Innocent civilians are often at extreme risk in the battles for gathering information or in the battles run by remote. In an interesting way, it might also be seen that this kind of distance campaign strategy is like the way some see the U.S. As contributing to the near collapse of the world economy. The U.S.'s lax financial rules and regulations pulled in other countries and set them up for many of the challenges they now face -- many of which are bringing about social and cultural unrest. It clearly would not be difficult for terrorists or even other nations to see this as an extension of the type of attitude that America picked up when it did its victory dance after the melting of….

… Iraq Afghan Culture

The War on Terror and the Imposition of Cultural Change

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…. [read more]

War in Iraq and the Media Thesis

… Iraq War

The war in Iraq was undertaken on the basis of questionable intelligence, and the degree to which it should have been accepted remains controversial. Another issue that has been raised is how complicit the news media was in the lead-up to the war, with some charging that the news media did not do their job and that journalists did not raise enough questions or challenge the Bush Administration on the claims it was making. Elements in the media indeed became cheerleaders for the war in its early phase, and many to this day may not have done enough to set the record straight or to make up for failing to show more doubt about the rationale for the war.

Of course, whatever the…. [read more]

Iraq War- Why America Term Paper

… If anyone had ever paid a visit to Iraq, he could see how poor the country was and how it lacked basic amenities. America could have sent humanitarian help to the country if it was sincere in its desire to help the people there. Instead what it did was attack the poor country and Iraqi civilians simply to prove a point i.e. America can attack any region anytime it pleases and doesn't even need to give a reason for its attack.

The pictures released last week have created given rise to extreme fury and passionate debates around the world regarding America's double standards when it comes to human rights violations. If Saddam was hurting his own people, America wanted him out of the country- captured…. [read more]

War the Experience Thesis

… My cousin, who was posted in both Iraq and Afghanistan can attest to these horrors. The quotation given by Homer of "Must you carry the bloody horror of combat in your heart forever?" is completely true for this war. Having seen the family member's actions, and comparing them to his previous self, one can observe the change. Both in the Hurt Locker and in the other sources mentioned here, the answer to this question, time and again, is yes. Yes, the bloody horror of combat will be carried forever because it is such an anti-human, illogical thing. Cruelty is not the strong suit of a man with a family, a man who must return to a child of innocence. Thus, this man become ever-marred by…. [read more]

War and Human Rights Abuse Term Paper

… S.'s enemy during the time of war. Fred Korematsu, in a case to the Supreme Court in 1944, has expressed outrage at his imprisonment for 5 years because he was unable to comply with the President's order and report to an assembly center when the order was enacted. Because of his non-compliance, he was tried and imprisoned for 5 years, and later transferred to an internment camp after his parole. Korematsu's case illustrates the nature of racial discrimination during the period, where the ongoing world war between the Allied (U.S.) and Axis (Japan) coalition had resulted to hostilities between the American government and society against the Japanese-Americans. In sum, anti-Japanese-American sentiments during the world war resulted to discrimination and abuse of the marginalized sector's human…. [read more]

Conflict Management Collective Security's Affect on State Essay

… Conflict Management

Collective Security's Affect on State Sovereignty:

Implications for the Past, Present, and Future

Is collective security a way for nations to protect themselves against common enemies, or is it just colonialism repackaged to look appealing? This is a question that can only be answered in two ways: through historical exploration and future speculation. To some, collective security agreements represent a progressivism that is transforming states into coalitions, a positive phenomenon that will change the scope of international relations for the better. To others, collective security agreements are simply another example through which large states exploit smaller ones. In the tradition of imperialism and new imperialism, these people suggest that smaller nations that sign collective security agreements are at the mercy of larger nations.…. [read more]

War and Society Research Paper

… As such, war would not be an effective policy tool due to globalization and the rippiling effect it would have the entire world economy. Events, due primarily to globalization, do not occur in isolation anymore. As such war should not be treated as a simple dipute, but rather a global problem.

Is major power war likely to disappear from history?

The future is uncertain. It is difficult to say, with any clarity if a major power will disappear. Anyone who claims to know this aspect with certainty is, quite frankly, delusional. In the past decade the world has encountered many unexpected events, which were as difficult to predict as they were to manage. A war in Syria, a war in Egypt, a tsunami in Japan,…. [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]

War Without Victory Nominally Research Paper

… The goal of the war was not the destruction of Iraq, but simply getting Iraq out of Kuwait. However, President Bush was determined to have a quick and decisive victory in the area, not the drawn-out fighting that had plagued the United States in both Korea and Vietnam (PBS, 2010). This desire for a clear-cut victory may have resulted in him allowing Hussein to remain in power, which only delayed further problems for the United States in the region.


There are some arguments that the Persian Gulf War was not a political failure. For example, many people suggest that deterrence was ineffective completely in preventing the Persian Gulf War. However, that view takes a limited approach to deterrence. Deterrence does not only apply to…. [read more]

How the Current War Affects Economics Term Paper

… War and Effects

The War of Terror is a campaign which was initiated by the U.S. And its Allies to end international terrorism after the deadly September 11 Attacks. The first attack was launched in Afghanistan in October 2001 to oust the Taliban and to find Osama Bin Laden. The U.S. was aided by its allies from various countries. This invasion happened because the U.S. wanted to punish the Taliban government for aiding Al-Qaeda. This was followed by the war in because the U.S. wrongly believed that Saddam Hussein had ties to Al-Qaeda. The U.S. government believed that overthrowing Saddam would lead to democracy in the Middle East and reduce terrorism.

The Iraq War has been the most problematic for the global economy especially the…. [read more]

Iraq Reconstruction of Iraq: UN Term Paper

… S. foreign policy, especially when dealing with prisoners-of-war (POWs). Recent reports of Iraqi prisoners abuse by the military created outrage among Iraqis, which further worsened the already poor efforts of the U.S. government's reconstruction program in the country (Ensor & Mount, 2004). The UN can remedy this problem of weak foreign policy by taking over the U.S. government's job, replacing it with a 'neutral' institution that will serve as intermediary not only between Iraq and U.S., but among other nations as well. U.S.'s weak international relations will also be remedied with UN's international network with other countries, drawing support for the Iraq reconstruction program not only with U.S.'s ally counties, but also countries sympathetic to the plight of the country (Iraq) and its people.

US War in Iraq Term Paper

… War in Iraq

To the hard-core right-wing son of a life-long Republican who waves a flag on the Fourth of July but is thoroughly uninitiated in matters of American foreign policy, there a war going on in Iraq and that's about all that matters. "The world is better off without Saddam Hussein," this person says, parroting President George Bush. "I support the president and our troops," he tells anyone who asks for his view. His car is American made, he hates unions, he despises rap music and he rages against immigrants who come into America with no "green card."

Then there is the 9-to-5 blue collar worker who is not affiliated with any political party, who finished high school (barely) and is totally disinterested in…. [read more]

War Versus Pollution Research Proposal

… ¶ … War on Pollution of the Environment


War with all that is entailed in such conflicts has a powerful environmental impact due to the pollution generated during war. These impacts include environmental pollution on land, in the sea, and in the air. The objective of this work is to examine the impact that war has on pollution of the environment.


It is reported in a Greenpeace Briefing of February 2003 that the impacts to the environment of the Gulf War "were tremendous." During that Gulf War there were a reported six to eight million barrels of oil "deliberately poured into the Persian Gulf, causing the world's largest oil spill." (Greenpeace, 2003) More than 600 Kuwait oil wells…. [read more]

War in Vietnam the Web Site Term Paper

… ¶ … War in Vietnam

The Web site of the PBS documentary of the War in Vietnam:,producedby PBS Online, gives a compelling history of the Vietnam War, from its inception to the American pullout and beyond. The authors' intent in creating the site was to bring together information from a wide variety of sources that might make the war and its outcome a bit clearer to people unfamiliar with the events, causes, and outcomes of the war. The site contains areas of brief history, a timeline, the air war, guerilla tactics, and the siege at Khe Sanh, along with additional resources for further study.

The Vietnam War actually began in the 1950s, in a conflict between France and its colony, Vietnam. France actually lost…. [read more]

Gaza War Began in 2008 Essay

… Because of Israel's failure to effect any change as a result of the 2006 war against Hezbollah, the state of Israel was eager to demonstrate its capabilities in the new field of Asymmetrical war. [4: Page 5, Cordesman, Anthony. The Gaza War: A Strategic Analysis. Center for Strategic and International Studies, March 3rd, 2009.]

When Hamas reiterated its proclamations that the state of Israel did not have a right to exist in 2008, Israel took it upon itself to launch a pre-emptive strike on Hamas in Gaza, which was characterized by three things. First, the border crossing was overrun by Israeli troops, bringing the economy of Gaza to a standstill. Israel also threatened the cutting off of water and electricity in Gaza. Hamas responded….

War in Iraq: An Application Term Paper

… In Coser's view, whether or not conflict is a good thing is dependent upon which parties are in conflict and the reasons behind it. The motivations behind conflict are as important as the conflict itself, if not more important (Conflict, 2003).

This is applied to the war in Iraq by looking at the motivations behind Saddam Hussein's regime in comparison to the motivations behind what the Iraqi people do. Unfortunately for the people of Iraq, it appears that Hussein's motives are not good ones. He is not looking for a form of conflict that can cause the society to change and grow into something better. Rather, he is looking for the kind of conflict that only comes from one person telling a country what it…. [read more]

Conflict Management Is it Feasible Essay

… Conflict Management

Is it feasible to apply the principles of democracy and capitalism as practiced in the U.S. To nation-building projects in the developing world? Is so, how; if not, why not?

When considering the first part of this questions, if one looks at the Iraq war at this point, five years after George W. Bush sent invading forces into Iraq, the answer would have to be "no," it does not seem "feasible" to think the U.S. can install a democratic system of government in Iraq. Or anywhere else given the same lack of tools and cultural understanding the U.S. entered Iraq with. The principles of democracy and capitalism as Americans know them are not easily implemented into a Muslim nation like Iraq. What was…. [read more]

War in Iraq the Conflict Term Paper

… War in Iraq

The conflict between Iraq and a coalition of thirty-four nations led by the United States of America is generally referred to as the 'Persian Gulf War', the 'Gulf War', the 'War in the Gulf', the 'Iraq Kuwaiti Conflict', the UN Iraq Conflict', the Desert Storm', the '1990 Gulf War', and so on. The war started when Iraq invaded Kuwait during the month of August 1990. When this happened, the immediate result was that of the passing of various economic sanctions on the part of the UN, or the United Nations, against Iraq. By the month of January 1991, hostilities had commenced in full swing, and what resulted was a complete victory for the coalition forces, which in turn forced Iraq out of…. [read more]

War Term Paper

… The fear of the Founding Fathers over demagoguery was becoming true in Clinton's thrust on public approval and his oft-repeated calls for public opinion.

Most Federalists considered the concepts of popular leader and demagogue almost synonymously and an excess of passionate appeals constituting the key characteristic of demagoguery. The separation of powers in the American political system may be destroyed if these appeals resulted in the president encroaching the responsibilities of the other branches of the government. By making the presidency a factor in a balanced system of sharing of powers, the Founders wanted to avoid demagoguery. 8. Demagoguery was a threat to the ability of the executive in resisting bad policies and executing the good ones, they felt. There are some experts who are…. [read more]

Iraq War John Keegan Tackles Research Proposal

… Iraq War

John Keegan tackles what he admits to be the one of the most controversial wars in recent American history in the Iraq War. However, Keegan's first edition of the tome was published in 2004, meaning that the author penned most of his observations not long after the invasion began. When the author extols the victories of the coalition forces in the beginning chapters of the Iraq War readers wonder if he is referring to the same Iraq War: the one 24-hour cable news networks still report on in 2008; the same Iraq War that has sullied the reputation of the United States; the same Iraq War that has not been characterized by "ending victoriously," as Keegan claims in the opening sentences of the….

Iraq in the Ottoman Empire Ottoman Rule Term Paper

… Iraq in the Ottoman Empire

Ottoman rule in Iraq began in 1535 and lasted until World War I.
During this time Iraq became a central player in Ottoman religious,
economic, and political developments, as it was important to Ottoman
interests in protecting its lands from the Eastern threats, primarily those
of modern day Iran. Also, Iraq helped the Ottoman's to increase economic
trade and resist Shiite influence on their own Sunni Muslim population.
Thus it was important to Ottoman ends of political security and protection
from the Persians and future encroachments, which is reflected in the
constant turmoil in the region. It is also noteworthy that the Ottoman's
at times struggled to administrate Iraq, and although the Mumlaks
encouraged stability, this would not be permanent…. [read more]

Iraq's History of Social Conflict Term Paper

… Iraq's History Of Social Conflict

As the "cradle of civilization," it is not surprising that the history of social conflict in Iraq is an ancient as mankind itself. Unfortunately, the intervening millennia have not brought any substantive or lasting peace to this region, but have rather been opportunities for still further major social conflicts over resources and ideological differences that have shaped the course of the country's destiny and served to mold it into modern-day Iraq. Moreover, it would appear reasonable to assert that, based on the powerful historic religious differences that have divided the country, these patterns of social conflict will likely continue well into the foreseeable future. To gain a better understanding of what the basis for this divisiveness has been, this paper…. [read more]

The author is also seeing a diminishing popularity of President Bush in his own country.

They will get only one final answer - the politicians lied. The author is going…. [read more]

Combat Psychology in Iraq and Afghanistan War Essay

… The tours in spring, 2007 to summer, 2008 have been extended officially to 15 months along with a guaranteed stay at home for a year between the tours. In august 2008, the tours were decreased to 12 months, however, the schedule made for deployment does not grant the 'dwell time' or the approved rest in between the tours.

The Army Mental Health Advisory Team or MHAT states that the veterans deployed for 6 months or more in Iraq are likely to suffer from mental injuries and there is a higher risk of PTSD for the soldiers who were deployed for long periods, even after arriving to their homes. They recommended to either decrease the time of deployment or increase the time of rest from 18…. [read more]

Iraq Conflict and Esdp Essay

… S. has become very obvious during the Kosovo crisis and with Iraq war, it became even more evident that U.S. will always have a bearing on how European states react to global crisis hence a solution was needed.

Strobe Talbot, former Deputy Secretary of State, had this to say about European forces and the U.S. At the end of Kosovo crisis:

Many Americans are saying: never again should the United States have to fly the lion's share of the risky missions in a NATO operation and foot by far the biggest bill. On the other hand, many Europeans seem determined never again to feel quite so dominated by the U.S. As they did during Kosovo, or, for that matter, during Bosnia. In the next crisis…. [read more]

War Term Paper

… The papers seem careful to not take a position directly contrary to the war effort, but with smugness that only can be found in east coast journalism, these two papers began debating who the most charismatic TV talking head had been on the opening night of armed conflict. A Washington Times article asked "TV talkers: Who did it best?" Another piece lit matches between the toes of democratic congressmen George Mitchell and Tom Foley, reminding them how difficult it would be in the days ahead to stay opposed to a popular president who is executing a popular war.

Color and character articles also began to occupy more pages. An article considered how to talk to children about the war when it had become such a…. [read more]

War on Terrorism Term Paper

… War on Terrorism

Terrorism is one of the most foundational threats that the world has ever seen. Terrorism is also a difficult threat as it is rarely if ever linked directly to a source nation, that has an official role in terrorist acts or movements. For this reason the "war on terror" is a war unlike any other war. The invasion and subsequent war in Iraq, despite its early connections to acts of terrorism has proven to be a war wholly ineffective in curbing, controlling or eradicating terrorism and it may in fact be feeding the idealism that is needed for acts of terrorism to take place. Many even claim that the war itself was begun as a persuasive tool for political reasons and was…. [read more]

War in Iraq the Top Term Paper

… Most Sunni Arabs are suspicious of the squads, since they are largely composed of Shiite and Kurdish rivals "eager to exact revenge for decades of suppression under Hussein, a Sunni Arab (McDonnell, Moore pp).

The Dawn article is written by a staff correspondent, and concerns the problems the United States is facing due to the increased attacks. It strongly suggests that the steady increase of terrorist attacks in Iraq is adding to the problems of President Bush, who, the article says, "is being criticized for allowing the war to continue for so long" (Iraq 1 pp). The article reports that Bush completed his 100 days into his second term on Friday, and is facing a "precipitous" decline in support for his social security plan (Iraq…. [read more]
