The threat of terrorist attacks changed American culture immensely; the devastation wakened the need for protection and a sense of security. Dramatic measures were taken in order to protect this country, so foreign relations were severely affected. Post 9/11 government saw the “link between immigration and security”, and that by changing foreign policy it would “reduce the likelihood of future attacks” (Krikorian 567).The safety measure in airports were countless from metal detectors to full body scans. “The immigration system has being penetrated by the enemy”, the officials realized which led to unfair accusation of innocents (Krikorian 568). “Overzealous officials” grill suspicious foreigners “to the point of near panic” (Khan 559).
ImperialismOsama bin laden and his followers charged another thing on United Status that the UnitedStates is using his power in the countries where it has military occupation formerly and thegovernments of these countries are alike puppets for it.They also blame that the United States unseat the government who turn against it and denyaccepting his order.There may be others factors about it that why Bin Laden do not like America or hate it. It can bestate that until unless these factors are present the issue of terrorism and insurgency is difficultto resolve. It is also seem that it is difficult to bring any improvement in the politicalcircumstances in the Middle East without resolving such
With this in mind, the common attitude in the United States was, as it continues to be today, that communism is evil manifest in a government. For this evil to manifest itself in a government that is supposedly of, for, and by the people, created a fear that the devil, or evil in general, had found its way into people in the United States. And, similar to Hale’s ideas in The Crucible, who better for this evil to envelope than those in the government? Those who govern the United States are supposed to be trusted to uphold the values for which this country stands. The evil, the communists, would have nothing to profit from infiltrating those who wielded no power.
Should George Bush be impeached?DS: Do you think George Bush should be impeached? NS: I think there is a case for him to be impeached, but I don’t think it would be a good idea. The reason I say there is a case because partly under the Constitution it’s high crimes and misdemeanors, which are not defined and the latest precedent we have is having a blow job in the Oval Office and lying about it is considered to be a high crime and misdemeanor. Well, Bush, has clearly lied to Congress, the American People, to the media about much more serious infractions and violations of the Constitution. He’s had a view that as Commander-in-Chief he can do whatever he wants, that he’s above the law, that he doesn’t have to abide by the laws that are duly
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.
Some would argue that by killing our enemies without due process, that we are no worse than our enemies in our barbarism. While such a statement is targeted at an audience's pathos, and is devoid of substance, it nevertheless points to the slippery sloped involved in targeted extra-judicial killing. Once powers contravening the Constitution have been put into the hands of government, this power is not easily removed. With this, in dealing with the dangers of terrorism, at home and abroad, America's policies do threaten its democracy. With this, it is of the utmost imperative that independent reviews of governmental policy, regardless of secrecy and classification, take place so as to ensure that extra-judicial governmental actions fall within the national interest, rather the whims of a given
Nowadays when one sees a Muslim or someone who looks like a Muslim, that person is automatically deemed as either being dangerous or a terrorist. This fact comes to tell how far the world has come to. The 9/11 attacks changed the people’s perspective upon Muslims and now the stereotype is that all Muslims are bad and that they are all terrorists looking to kill innocent Americans. The next reason as to why the attacks were a success was due to the support that al-Qaeda got from different organizations and countries. They got financial support from countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Syria.
While the scare is over terrorism rather than communism, the principle is the same. Out of this terror, paranoia, fear, and general discomfort, historians tend to draw a more positive light to shine through the darkness of the age. The terrorist attack on the twin towers on September 11th was one spark that started the fire against terrorism. People, primarily men of Middle Eastern descent are the new subjects of discrimination - in the eyes of the fear-ridden American they are possible terrorist threats. The country, just like in the 1950’s – nearly 60 years prior was, and is sold on fear.
“The Detention Scandal” is an editorial taken from the America magazine. In this article, the authors show how national security is used as an excuse to keep the prisoners on the Guantanamo Bay. The authors try to prove how the fear of terrorism has blinded the U.S. government that it has made them deny the basic human rights. Everyone sees the wrong doings in Guantanamo Bay and knows it needs to be shut down but the fear of government to lose their “suspected” enemy combatants make it impossible. The authors use the different components of persuasion throughout the article.
