The official reasons to enter the Iraq conflict were freeing Iraq people, planting democracy, and destroying the Iraq nuclear potential. The U.S intelligence got the data which said that Iraq has been increasing its nuclear potential through the past decade. American and British governments agreed that letting Iraq, which is a potentially aggressive state, possess nuclear weapon, it too dangerous. Iraq leaders stated they needed nuclear substances and technologies in order to create sources of nuclear energy that could be used for peaceful means. Nevertheless, the elements used for it can also be used for creating nuclear weapon.
Operation Iraq Freedom When they surrendered in the first Gulf War, Gulf War I, they agreed to allow inspections of WMD. They kicked the inspectors out and started shooting at our planes in the no-fly zone. More babies are aborted each and every day in the USA than the number of USA troops killed in Iraq since the beginning of the war. If people are worried about life, they should be working to stop abortion instead of the war. The average age of the soldier in Iraq is 30 years old so when you hear someone say to get our kids, boys, young men, out of Iraq, they don't understand what is happening over there.
They will challenge non-Islamic governments in anyway, including force. Al-Qaeda operates in 40-50 countries in the Middle East, Asia, North America and Europe. In each country they recruit new members, raise funds and plan operations to plan their attacks. They hope that continued attacks on non-Islamic governments and their people will eventually persuade America to leave Saudi Arabia. The Response (1) War on Terror In response to 9/11, George W. Bush, the US president established the War on Terror.
Iraq Prison Scandal In the year 2003 The Bush administration justified and led the American people into war with Iraq. The White house reported claims that Iraqi leader, Saddam Hussein, had weapons of mass destruction and that the people of Iraq were living under brutal dictatorship from their leader. Ostensibly the war was to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction and eviscerate and remnants of Alqaeda and its affiliates. The war mongers of both sides (democrats and republicans), wanted someone or something to blame for 9/11. After selling their lies and plans for the war to the America people, congress had given President Bush carte blanche to bring justice to those who caused pain and destruction on American soil.
The soldiers were to help the Iraq population rather than destroy it by killing innocent people. There were times during this was where this strategy seemed impossible. Baghdad is an example of these times. The soldiers would end up taking innocent lives just because they were trying to keep up good self-defense. Many soldiers lost their lives trying to follow through with the surge.
Nyle’s Grandma allowed two evacuees, a mother and her very sick son, to settle in her house until the boy got better. The boy’s name was Ezra, and in the beginning Nyle was not happy with him staying at her house. She was sure he was going to die, so she swore she would not let herself get too close to him, she was to afraid she would lose him. Pity overcomes her and they become great friends. Towards the end of the novel Leukemia overcomes Ezra and Nyle is forced to live with the thought that Ezra might be dead.
I worked individually on my paper to research the topic of the war in Iraq and more specifically, President Bush’s policy on this topic. My initial intended focus for my research started with the presidential election debates during 2004 but was redirected to the current President’s policy on the war in Iraq. This transition was, in large part, due to my reading from Fiasco.
Case Study: Iraq War Daryle Moore The policy for the Iraq war is Iraqi freedom, which ultimately means a democratic state. The issue is this; should we have gone to war in Iraq. Our case for going to war was based upon these ideas by the U.S. government: Iraq's noncompliance with the conditions of the 1991 cease fire, including interference with weapons inspectors Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction, and programs to develop such weapons, posed a "threat to the national security of the United States and international peace and security in the Persian Gulf region" Iraq's "brutal repression of its civilian population" Iraq's "capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction against other nations and its own people" Iraq's hostility towards the United States as demonstrated by the 1993 assassination attempt of former President George H. W. Bush, and firing on coalition aircraft enforcing the no-fly zones following the 1991 Gulf War Members of al-Qaida were "known to be in Iraq" Iraq's "continuing to aid and harbor other international terrorist organizations," including anti-United States terrorist organizations Fear that Iraq would provide weapons of mass destruction to terrorists for use against the United States The efforts by the Congress and the President to fight the 9/11 terrorists and those who aided or harbored them The authorization by the Constitution and the Congress for the President to fight anti-United States terrorism [i] Our first war with Iraq was based upon some of the same findings as well as the invasion of Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, the latter is the only thing that we have indisputable evidence of. I dare to say in normal instances, we would have two different sides to a confrontation of policy or rule.
However, terrorists can argue that their methods are ethical and just to right wrongs due to political and social injustices. For instance; when people have been stripped of their rights or land, resorting to terrorism could be the only effective means to bring change. Many nations live in hunger or poverty—particularly the Third World countries—and see few options other than violent acts of terrorism to get the attention of the media in hopes of making their world better. After the attacks of September 11, Osama bin Laden, founder of Al-Queda, felt that the land of his people is being stripped by oppressive U.S. military forces simply by occupying the holy lands of
