One of the most recent and predominantly exhibited problems of today is the abuse of firearms within the American culture. Since the effects of Illegal use of firearms have been currently rampant in the United States, our government has implemented laws to regulate offenders and format a solution in attempts to eliminate the accidents, misuse, and crime on the rise. Although it seems as if these laws would quickly diminish this problem, they have many repercussions. The rights of Americans, specifically the second amendment, are being questioned by the members of society who obey gun laws and safety regulations. This is creating an enormous debate and concern for many people, not only within our government.

After the terrorist attack of 9/11 several criticized the intelligence community for failing to warn about the terrorist attacks. The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) was one of the main agencies criticized mainly for not focusing on the domestic terrorist threat, collecting useful intelligence, analyzing strategic intelligence or sharing intelligence internally and with other members of the intelligence community. The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks report identified that the failure of the United States intelligence Community to share information in being a problem and identified that intelligence is the first line of defense in our nation’s security and recommended integration of all domestic and foreign sources of intelligence resulting in the creation of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorist Prevention Act of 2004 (IRTPA). The IRTPA established the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to oversee the intelligence community and facilitate the exchange of information with the community. It also redefined national intelligence to include foreign intelligence, domestic intelligence and homeland security intelligence.
Throughout his whole speech, he uses an anger and disparaging tome to reflect Bush’s point of view. Overall, George Bush uses emotional appeal, metaphors, and tone to portray Al Qaeda as iniquitous freedom haters which persuades the audience to recognise his contention and accept his point of view. Americans are depicted as victims of war from the September 11th terrorist incident with George Bush’s speech. An anecdote is used in the first paragraph to portray this: “...Americans have known the casualties of war--but not at the centre of a great city on a peaceful morning. Americans have known surprise attacks—but never before on thousands of civilians.
These events have shocked the U.S. liberal media and millions of Americans, both liberal and conservatives alike, but as alarming as these things are, and as disturbing as the ongoing use of excessive force is, there has been an alarming change. That change being the militarization of America’s police forces. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to expose and sensitize the reader to and help them make sense of current trends in the police institution, the causes and effects of the increasing military tactics and weapon and how incidents of violent overreach are the only logical conclusion to a police force who views and conduct itself more like an occupying army then a civilian protectorate or defenders of the population, but most importantly to understand the dangers of the increased use of military weaponry and tactics used by civilian police forces against its citizens. Determining whether a civilian police force is becoming ‘militarized’ should not be viewed as antipolice. It should be
Edward Snowden was an ex National Security Agency (NSA) contractor who leaked classified government information to journalists about the agency’s domestic spying activities which he believed to be an abuse of NSA’s authority and illegal(McCutcheon). He maintains that his revelations were for the good of the public because the government was over reaching and trampling on our Bill of Rights. And as a result, some people see him as a hero while others have branded him as a traitor. Although Snowden sees himself as a good citizen and a force for good, I on the contrary, take the position that his actions has put the nation at a disadvantage against our fight with the terrorist and therefore, that makes him a traitor in my eyes. To begin with, Snowden’s revelations made know to the public that the NSA has been collecting phone records on millions of US citizens as well as running an electronic surveillance program code name PRISM.

Many people are diverse when it comes to the cold war and each believed the other was the cause and the start. USA believed that Russia was a threat and thus tried to make out that she was the true villain, yet Russia believed that it was the USA’s doing in which provoked a war full of rivalry and suspicion.

For example, when the USA dropped the atomic bomb on Japan the Russians were particularly frightened of what this meant for them.
