Therefore, during the 1961 British Guiana elections, Kennedy was determined to deny Jagan power. John F. Kennedy did not make a good choice by carrying out a coup in the British Guiana to overthrow Jagan. Although Cheddi Jagan was a declared communist, he posed no threat to the United States. The British Guiana was an insignificant colony for the Western Hemisphere; however, Kennedy was unwilling to let any country become communist. Besides that Cheddi Jagan was a communist, John F. Kennedy did not have a valid reason to overthrow the British Guiana government.
Despite one of its main purpose being to prevent the outbreak of war, it was useless and did nothing to prevent the outbreak of World War 2. This was due to it having no military force of its own. America, one of the major powers, did not support it. France and Britain the other major powers also did nothing to stop. The League did nothing except protest against Germany’s past aggressive behavior and Japan and Mussolini’s invasion.
The second amendment says “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” (Bill of Rights). But how could we interpret this amendment? Does this mean that we have the right to have only one gun, or we have the right to have as many guns as we want? Every right has its limitations and this right is not the exception. The first amendment says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…” (Bill of Rights).

My partner and I disagree with the resolved: Unilateral military force by the United States is justified to prevent nuclear proliferation A few definitions to set the stage for the debate: Unilateral- a unilateral action or decision is done by only one of the groups involved in a situation. <http://www.ldoceonline.com/Government-topic/unilateral> Justified- Demonstrated or proven to be just, right, or valid. <http://www.answers.com/topic/justify> Prevent- to stop something from happening or someone from doing something. <http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/prevent> Nuclear proliferation- a term used to describe the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons-applicable nuclear technology and information, to nations which are not recognized as "Nuclear Weapon States" by the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons, also known as the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty or NPT. < http://definitions.uslegal.com/n/nuclear-proliferation%20/> In order for the Pro to win this debate, unilateral military force by the United States must not only be proven to effectively prevent nuclear proliferation, but also be justified.
3. I am not in a position to judge whether this impression is correct; what I can do though, is try in this letter to reinforce what Secretary of State James A. Baker told your foreign minister and eliminate any uncertainty or ambiguity that might exist in your mind about where we stand and what we are prepared to do. 4. The international community is united in its call for Iraq to leave all of Kuwait without condition and without further delay. This is not simply the policy of the United States; it is the position of the world community as expressed in no less than twelve Security Council resolutions.
Why has the United States paid lip service to the 14th & 15th Amendments while it venerates Amendments 1-10? Amendments 1-10 are known as the Bill of Rights and guarantee individual freedoms and protections from the intrusion of the federal government. Perhaps the most important and critical amendment is the first Amendment:“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” This amendment details the freedoms the founders were seeking to give the people; for with these rights they guaranteed that we can assert our views of religion, of speech, that we can protest and change unfair practices. Three Amendments are called the Reconstruction Amendments for the period following the Civil War called Reconstruction 1865-1877. The concept was that the defeated southern states would be rehabilitated and brought back to normal standing as citizens of the united states during this reconstruction period.
Fact NOT Opinion: Gun Control Doesn’t Work vs. Gun Control The 2nd Amendment states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Lorri Anderson, in her article “Fact NOT Opinion: Gun Control Doesn’t Work,” attempts to convey the idea that the government and media are to an extent, responsible for misleading the public of relevant statistical information pertaining to gun control in the USA. She implies that, “Everyone should have the right to bear arms,” and her ultimate purpose is to justify that, “It is not the guns that are bad; it is the individuals carrying them.” Therefore, CCW (Carrying Concealed Weapon) carriers should be permitted to carry arms anywhere and not just be limited to having them in their homes. Anderson uses statistics from the Department of Public Safety and recounts past shooting events across the country to support her point. Anderson adopts a patriotic tone in an effort to appeal to readers that may disagree with her argument.
No one ever said that guns killed Osama Bin Laden. It was the Navy Seals that caught him and killed him. And that is just one example. It was Benjamin Franklin who said “He who sacrifices freedom for security, deserves neither.” If you take all the guns away from Americans, there would be no deaths by guns and that is understandable. But if we as Americans have no way of protecting ourselves and the ones we love, then what is going to happen if the fight comes to our front door?
If the sole reason for war was to capture Sadaam and his officials, this would then be unjust. At the time of the war, the war met another requirement of the doctrine; it had legitimate authority, George W. Bush. As long as a legit source declares the war, approval from the UN is unnecessary. Therefore there was an official declaration of war, showing
