The terrorist groups, especially the al Qaeda, were dissatisfied with how the United States government ran its affairs. In the case of Al Qaeda, the leaders and members felt that the United States should not protect Israel from the Arab world’s attacks. During the 1960s and 1970s, several groups of individuals as well as individuals voiced their disgust over the government’s handling of its affairs in terms of politics and the handling of international environments. For example, the discouraging loss during the Vietnam War was frequently mentioned as one of the waterloo events (losses) of the United States by the antigovernment rallyists. Within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States and Europe, several factions sought to terrorize those joining the war prerogative.
However, no monetary amount could correct the trauma that was brought upon this man by his own government. This in turn caused many Americans to question the actual usefulness of the Patriot Act. The feeling is that it doesn’t work and it allows government to skip important steps in trying to prove people are guilty or were truly involved in a crime. While there was without a question a mistake made, it is the knowledge gained from experiences such as this one in which government officials can reflect on and use better judgment in the
Aiming to win back support from the American’s, as many people did not support the Vietnam war due to the bad media that was publicised. This was the first War to be so publicised and it shocked many of the people back home. This lead to Anti-War protest, which became one of the US governments aims to stop. However they still stuck to the aim to try and contain Vietnam from the spread of communism and supporting the SV defeat the VC in nearby country Cambodia. On the other side the aims of the NV government and their terrorist organisation the VC did not alter as they still aimed to persuade the SV government to vote for Vietnam to become a communist country.
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.
Abstract: This research aims to identify causes of terrorism that are consistent across several divergent movements at the macro-systematic level. By identifying root causes that can explain terrorism, and their flow, regardless of differing backgrounds, this research attempts to outline methods by which policy can be crafted that aid in the identification of potential terrorism as well as the reduction of the threat of terrorist movement generation. This piece was completed through the qualitative analysis of case studies of several terrorist organizations as well as general research literature germane to the topic. The research has revealed that, despite different time periods, cultures, and ideologies, the precipitation of terrorism requires a society spanning problem necessitating rectification which leads to the revelation that the political system in place is inadequate to fulfill this demand which ultimately leads to people adhering to radical ideologies to enact the change they wish to see. Also, it is found that ideologies only come into play once longstanding grievances have been established.
Today, the United States is involved in a similar situation. The war in the Middle East has caused enormous public debate and anti-war protests within American culture. Because of the lack of support from the American people, the war in the Middle East has fallen far short of successful in the eyes of the public. Despite the fact that both Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden have been killed, the US armed forces still lack the support of the American home front. The United States engaged in war against terrorism because of the attacks on the World Trade Centers on September 11, 2001.
Many reasons were given as to why terrorism was not included at the time, such as: (1) the lack of a generally accepted definition, (2) the possibility that the inclusion might politicize the court, (3) the inclusion may impede the acceptance of the Rome Statute, (4) would overburden the court with cases of less importance, and (5) the core crimes were of more concern to the international community, those four crimes being the crimes currently listed in the Rome Statute. While there were many reasons why the crime of
The challenges facing groups in law enforcement organizations in America include public policy, political, punishment, rehabilitation, crime victim, criminal investigation, and agency cooperation challenges (Stojkovic, Kalinich, & Klofas, 2012). Public policy is a critical challenge facing groups in law enforcement organizations in America. Since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, public policy has been on the downslide, causing major challenges for law enforcement groups. The reason terrorism creates a challenge to law enforcement groups is because society distrusts law enforcement in the wake of September 11, 2001. The current lack of trust within society about law enforcement’s ability to protect America from terrorism creates gaps in public policy for law enforcement groups, which results in society demanding that law enforcement groups re-develop new policies that prevent and combat terrorism on American shores (Wilson & Herrnstein,
People started to become unsatisfied with the war. Due to the cost of the war may the inflation worse (Ryan, 2008). The president kept telling the US that the war was going to end soon. Unfortunately, President Johnson lied. There was no longer any faith in government officials.
Many legal experts now describe the attack of Iraq as an act of aggression and violating international law and accuse Britain and the US. This is because there is no the authorization of the U.N. Security Council and Iraq had no WMD since 1992. Therefore, the sanctions were illegal crimes and the war on Iraq is an act of aggression in gross violation of U.N. Charter. UN Secretary General stated that “the use of force without Council endorsement would not be in conformity with the Charter". President Bush’s war campaign into Iraq is not justified under article fifty-one of the United Nations charter.
