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.
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.
Why Did the U.S Go to War with Iraq in 2003? Iraq war is one of the most debatable U.S military conflicts of the past decades. Different opinions exist about the propriety of this war. Nevertheless, it is likely that that the U.S intervention into Iraq was a justified measure, as it helped to prevent more serious and dangerous conflicts on the Middle East. The official reasons to enter the Iraq conflict were freeing Iraq people, planting democracy, and destroying the Iraq nuclear potential.
This is why I think we shouldn’t have nukes in some countries of the world. There could be a potential world war III all from one nuke. For example the launching of a big out right war using nuclear war heads against Iran has activated drawing boards of the pentagon since 2005. Since 2005 we have been at war with Iran. This has turned into a pre world war three shaking countries all over the world.
Iraq was left out on its own to fend off the world. This war turned out to be Sadaam vs. the world. Countries felt threatened by the mere existence of this man Sadaam considering him a menace to society. Sadaam proved over again that he was after land first invading Iran and then taking over Kuwait. When Sadaam took over Kuwait he was after the Kuwaiti Oil.
In March 2003, US-led coalition forces invaded Iraq with the proclaimed objective of locating weapons of mass-destruction. These two examples confirm the realist theory that the laws of politics are unchangeable because they are rooted in human nature (Morgenthau). However, as far as war is concerned, the realist claim that the laws of politics are always the same can be challenged. The events of IR in the last century have provoked profound changes in the nature of war. Two world wars, the threat of a third global conflict, policies of mass extermination, the establishment of international regimes and organizations, issues of decolonization and the technology revolution have revolutionized the way of waging war.
Vocabulary changed too “terrorism” “bomb” and “terror attacks” were terms used regularly and became a social norm with “war” being added to the list when Iraq was invaded. The acceptable images that were broadcast during this time were also changing the American use of a deck of cards as a hit list of people they wanted dead was a regular occurrence as were images of victories and injured soldiers. While all the graphic images were being beamed into our homes, printed in our newspapers and magazines the music industry was struggling with many radio stations choosing to censor music quite drastically. Many artists and bands had to change to avoid censorship. The attacks by Al Qaeda on September 11th were co-ordinated and calculated they hit the heart of capitalism and also the Pentagon another plane was ditched in a field in Pennsylvania which may have been heading for Washington D.C. almost three thousand people from many different countries were killed that day so the effects were felt world-wide.
Suspicion quickly fell on al-Qaeda. Although the group's leader, Osama bin Laden, initially denied any involvement, in 2004, he claimed responsibility for the attacks. Al-Qaeda and bin Laden cited U.S. support of Israel, the presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, and sanctions against Iraq as motives for the attacks. The United States responded to the attacks by launching the War on Terror and invading Afghanistan to depose the Taliban, which had harbored al-Qaeda. Many countries strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded law enforcement powers.
Philosophy 111-003 15 December 2011 Terrorism and the War on Terror The War on Terror is characterized as a fundamentally different type of war than previous and more traditional conflicts. The War on Terror is a military effort to eliminate terrorism as well as the funding of terrorist cells throughout the world. The primary goals of this war are to find and eliminate terrorists and ultimately end terrorism, with the initial targets being the Taliban and Al-Queda. A precise definition of terrorism has proven to be rather controversial, various government agencies and legal systems tend to have different definitions. After numerous readings and film viewing on the topic of terrorism throughout this course I believe I can define terrorism as premeditated, deliberate, systematic murder, as well as threats aimed at people or property to intimidate and create fear for political ends.
