Americans know “racial profiling is both morally wrong and ineffective”, but they rather be safe than sorry (Chavez 563). Americans only get the idea that all middle easterners are terrorists because media has taken the role of portraying them in such a way to plants terror in Americans (Spurlock). People have gotten to the point of people being “singled out” because of looking certain way or because people around them feel uncomfortable (Chavez 569).
"They are trying to manipulate world opinion in a way that is advantageous to them and disadvantageous to us," Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld says of the enemy. "And we need to do everything we can to make sure the truth gets out." Rumsfeld, however, makes it clear that he sees acceptable shades of gray between telling the whole truth and outright lies. "There are dozens of ways to avoid having to put yourself in a position where you're lying," he
A terrorist threat/ attack and a nuclear threat are real attacks that still go on today in our country and our people are scared of. In my opinion both of them are alike. They make the government have to evaluate everything that is going on and it deters the economic growth in our community, on this causes the government to take advantage of their view of defense against an upcoming attack. A war and an attack such as 9/11 are two different types of attacks. And these are attacks that people will forever remember.
“The Detention Scandal” is an editorial taken from the America magazine. In this article, the authors show how national security is used as an excuse to keep the prisoners on the Guantanamo Bay. The authors try to prove how the fear of terrorism has blinded the U.S. government that it has made them deny the basic human rights. Everyone sees the wrong doings in Guantanamo Bay and knows it needs to be shut down but the fear of government to lose their “suspected” enemy combatants make it impossible. The authors use the different components of persuasion throughout the article.
He is reverent and somber at times, and at others, full of fiery determination. Throughout the presentation, however, Bush stands resolute. He continually stresses the point of needing to "bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies..." which fits in with his urgently imperative tone. He makes known the great import of acting now, and makes it evident that over thinking and delay will bring failure to the country's quest for vengeance. George W. Bush's use of rhetorical strategies is admirable, regardless of whether one agrees or disagrees with his politics.
If they see the soft spot, they will attack it on full force. If that happens there will in fact be at least an attempt on a terrorist attack against the United States. The United States should keep troops in the Middle East to protect the countries that are unable to protect themselves from awful terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda and so that the U.S seems vulnerable to the same terrorist
The United States is the strongest government in the world and the media puts it down so very hard. It has gotten to the point where everything that you hear on the news and proclaimed by the media is in a negative manner. The media is hiding the good points of the story just to make an interesting story about the bad. It makes me sick! Now to hear about the hidden points of the war in Iraq I will explain them and prove how the media puts down this great uplifting story.
This freedom also opened doors for abuse. Armies, necessary to protect freedom, were able to bully other nations. There were two safeguards against the menacing instability. The first safeguard was a doctrine and it stated: wars were made by hungry, arrogant, ignorant, oppressed men. It was thought that the new world would get rid of the need for war.
It has hurt our credibility across the world and caused a loss of faith in government by its citizens. Although the necessity of the war is argued by many, it is only done in an analysis of its occurrence. Had it not happened and the world possibly fell under Communism, then we would be arguing the exact opposite. The United States did what it felt it had to do at the time, given the information it had. To go to war in Vietnam was a risk the US felt it had to take in order to contain Communism, thus securing its economic prosperity and worldwide dominance.
These illegals come to expect the handouts, which are happily given to them with no questions asked and the people here legally come to resent the government for giving these handouts. Crime rates skyrocket, innocents are hurt and then medical cost skyrocket, thus ending in another viscous cycle. This is a cycle that will only keep repeating itself, unless we as a country strive to change what we are doing and start holding people, all people accountable for their actions. It must be said that if you want to become an American citizen there is a certain protocol that must be followed, and they there are certain, important rules that must be followed, that if these rules are not followed there will be
