If not, Germany would have looked at all the positives and negatives of sinking the Lusitania, and would have realized the cons outweighed the pros in this situation. The Germans, though sure of the presence of weapons onboard, did not consider all the possible repercussions of sinking the Lusitania. They knew the ship held weapons, and, instinctively, any enemy will fight their enemy to prevent them from gaining an advantage. So, the Germans sunk the Lusitania because of their knowledge that the ship contained munitions
warrants that can be executed in other specified judicial district (US DOJ, July 2004). It was used to investigate members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad that were later indicted for conspiring to assist a foreign terrorist organization and to the man who, in 2003, drove a vehicle onto the National Mall in our country’s capital while threatening to detonate a bomb. Clearly people should see this as a victory that was only made possible by the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act allowed the government ways to investigate the group and people that couldn’t be done legally before. If the government were not allowed to investigate those people as thoroughly as they did the outcome of those men’s actions could have been more destruction to the country and possible lives lost.
In the sense of Walzer then, the Marines would not have been acting unjust, and that all the insurgents should be killed. However, in reality, it is most probably that the men were not all insurgents and the Marines entrapping them and unfortunately killing some of them in the car accident that soon followed the capture, was in fact a real war
We should punish the Bush Administration because of the three reasons I am about to tell you. The first reason is the Bush Administration tortured terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. Second reason is that it broke America’s budget. Final reason is it took America to an unnecessary war. I believe the Bush Administration should not have done any of these things because if they had not done this, then we would not be in terrible situation.
People were so upset because they were afraid that sending troops to Iraq would take the focus off of Afghanistan and the mission to find Bin Laden. Seeing the way that people just turn against and decide that they want to kill innocent people just does not make since. Looking at this serious situation, many people see that the September 11th attacks badly because it was more of a modern day situation. Also it was in the United States, which we live in. The attack was a very tragic and hurting time in American history.
I’m not a killer! You didn’t want me, you bastards, you wanted Peter, but you made me do it, you tricked me into it” (Scott Card 297-298). Through out the entire program, Ender thought what he had been playing on his stimulations were fake, only to find out that he was being manipulated by the people he thought were his friends. Ender believed that the government should have picked Peter because he was the one who was all for the violence and eliminating an entire species: unlike
One of their major goals was to disrupt and destroy the South Vietnamese government. Orders were actually given to the invaders to cause maximum disruption to the government to create crisis by killing military and administrative personnel. This reason alone would do some serious damage to the government but another tactic was to kill for “…terrorism and warning.” By killing government officials and private citizens it scared the citizens of not just Hue but all over the area into compliance with the National Liberation Front. The communists also wanted to annihilate Christians for political reasons. The communists always tried to suppress religions anyway possible and because of Ngo Dinh Diem being Catholic and in charge of South Vietnam at the start of the resistance to the North.
That is what a lot of people asked themselves and still ask themselves until this day. To put it briefly, Fussel’s argument states that war was savage for invasion forces and killing civilians of Japan was the only way to avoid a Japanese invasion. In complete disregard to civilian lives, he believes the atomic bomb may have killed many but that it saved many more. Walzer believes that dropping the atomic bomb was inhumane and that war is all about the choices that you make. Walzer makes many valid points that forced me to change
The Real Effects of Torture “If we are unwilling to torture, we should be willing to wage modern war.”(Harris). This quote is from the article “In Defense of Torture” where author Sam Harris makes a stance stating that torture should be legal. Throughout this article Harris makes comparisons between the lives of innocent people and the lives of terrorists and other war criminals. His main point of argument is that dropping a bomb on a foreign country creates collateral damage killing some innocent people along the way, and that collateral damage is more detrimental to a foreign country than torturing people for information. Harris provides a good point of argument with these examples, however, this argument is flawed.
What good will it do us if I kill our worst enemy? Except, of course, the celebration of our triumph of good over evil, or is it really evil over evil? Captain Torres kills people and destroys their families to show that he is the most powerful and nobody can go against him. On the other hand, I would kill to win, by bloodshed. How is that good over evil since some people will be against and some will be for this act?
