The country, just like in the 1950’s – nearly 60 years prior was, and is sold on fear. However in this decade there isn’t a new “McCarthy” – one man is not needed to stimulate accusations and distrust as this fear is not against just anyone, but rather focused on specific ethnic groups. The terrorist scare of present times shares the same qualities and traits as the communist scare of the 50’s and the resulting effects on historian thought. Both are an overblown paranoia against a specific group of individuals causing much havoc and fear. Out of this fear comes the resulting philosophy or thought process of historians – a new pro-American, less critical view of the
There simply isn’t time to sit around and wait for a prisoner to confess the needed information to release the hostages safely. The government has to work quickly and effectively in order to ensure its citizen’s security. It is a moral duty of the governments to torture a terrorist if it means saving American lives, so therefore torture is justified in any hostage situation. Terrorists live to terrorize the civilians and so they are entitled to nothing. They are not entitled to be protected from torture as a law-abiding citizen would be because they do not abide by the law, they live to break
All Muslims seek to be martyrs. The tern is used to describe this act was important, whereas; suicide bomber implied an impulsive act by a deranged individual. The missions were ones that were deliberately and carefully chosen as part of their religious obligation. Rantisi emphasized “we do not order them to do it, but give them permission for them at certain times”. These acts were only allowed in response to acts of violence brought on by the Israeli side, which frequently affected innocent civilians.
In the beginning, slavery was the most popular labor force in both Latin America and in Caribbean plantation, whom were mostly Africans brought by the Atlantic Slave Trade. Through time slavery declined through abolition movements, but many plantation owners secretly kept slaves. By 1914, indentured servants were most popular in plantations and slavery was nearly non-existent. Another change that occurred was that after indentured servitude became and alternative to slavery, it was argued that it wasn’t much better. Eventually, wage labor in cities was industrialized and wage workers were given the ability to gain power.
Within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States and Europe, several factions sought to terrorize those joining the war prerogative. A vivid example to bring home the point is the Germany incident. Here, the small Bader-Meinhof Gang members had anti-Vietnam feelings. On the other hand, many of the activities orchestrated by such groups were classified as pure social or political nuisance instead of being branded as terrorist groups. To bring home the point regarding terrorism, Ted Robert Gurr described within his book “Some Characteristics of Political Terrorism”.
Ad Misericordium Argument (or also- called pity appeal) is recognized in Murdock’s article. This logical fallacy means appealing to the reader’s emotions rather that reason because pity appeal feels like manipulation and distraction from the real issue. (Goshgarian 24) Ad Misericordium is shown through, “Victims of terrorism do not “die”, nor are they “lost”. They are killed, murdered, slaughtered. Likewise, many people “died” in the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.
Cicero states not only must we show consideration for those whom we have conquered by force of arms, but we must also ensure protection to those who lay down their arms. In addition to the Geneva Convention, the United States armed services have a code of conduct that soldiers must adhere to. There have been instances where innocent busloads of children have been killed in the Middle East. According to the tenants this was not unjust because the intent of the US military was not to kill innocent children although the children ended up being the casualties. Complicating the obligation to follow the tenant of discrimination is the fact that our enemies do not adhere to the tenant of discrimination.
This is because a deadly weapon was actually used. First, even if her husband did threaten her, it was only verbal and was not accompanied by any physical action. There is little perceived fear that we can attach to Sharon and no reasonable basis why she should have been scared. She also had the chance to leave the table and retreat away from her husband but actually chose to hit him over his head with a bottle. In addition, majority of jurisdictions consider force that can lead to serious bodily harm; for example, a bloodied head, as being equivalent to the use of a deadly weapon (Siegel & Senna, 2008).
The slave trade was no longer monopolized by the Royal African Co., therefore opening up a new market of human trade to fuel the growth of the American colonies which was dependent on the cheap forced labor to oversee the cultivation of corps like tobacco in the United States, and Sugar cane in the Caribbean Islands and its Lesser Antilles. In the newly formed colonies “migrant slaves from Africa outnumbered the European migrants nearly five to one.”(Pg. 50) Over the next century and a half more than 21 million people had been enslaved in Africa and forced into slavery in the New World as described in the
