This administration was not entering into this war without its own interests addressed since they received $6 billion (US) from Kuwait in support for the United States forces. The USA had its own interests in mind and the most important to them was not the safe return of all Kuwaiti land but rather the oil with which Kuwait would owe them for returning their land. This war was also known as the Desert Storm. Desert Storm was not only about Iraq since it affected many countries around Iraq. Some have suggested that Israel felt threatened as a result of the power which Sadaam and Iraq had gained and that is what brought the United States into the war.
Controversies of oil or political control are only some of the reasons citizens assume is the reason. Despite these facts, a majority of the United States population agree that the Iraq War is not neccesary. The United States White House and the Bush administration assure the citizens that they are trying their best to complete the Iraq War, and return the soldiers back to their homes. Through the recent surge of reinforcements in Iraq, the government state that this is essential to ending the war faster. But carnage the surge has caused, the war has been made longer instead of shorter.
These protestors argued that there were not enough reasons to justify an invasion of Iraq. The same argument can be applied to American involvement in many other affairs today, such as its debated intervention in the Syrian Civil War and the Russo-Ukrainian conflict. When should deciding the fate of a foreign country be justified? The answer is to determine how the people living in the country will be affected. Many historical events, especially the conflicts in World War II, have shown when foreign invasions have been justified, and when they have not.
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.
Student: Cristiano Queiroz Professor: Magdalena Lamar Date: 15 April 2011 Compare and Contrast study between the Gulf War and the Iraq War The Gulf war and the Iraq war are wars in which the chief antagonist was Saddam Hussein. Even so, the two are recent wars which threatened the stability of the Middle East, as well as international security, it has also been speculated that the real motives leading to west intervention in both wars were not what the coalition, led by United States, declared, justifying their intervention, instead the real motive triggering the quick retaliation from the West, was due to protection of the Middle East oil supply that was threatened to fall in Saddan Hussein’s control. While both wars are similar to the aspect of the America’s policy in regard only to its own benefit throughout the world, when we see American policy makers repeating the same mistakes of Vietnam, “where they exaggerated the importance of the Vietnam to the United States. Had they instead, more soberly assessed its true value to the economic and security interests to US, recognizing the popular appeal of revolutionary nationalism within the country (McMahon). Also the ensuing Wars might well have been averted other major interpretive approach offering far more radical critique of American intentions and behavior.
There are reasons to support both sides of the issue. War is seen by most as a measure that should only be used if there is no other alternative. Some would argue that war should be an offensive strategy because if we perceive a country as a threat, we should be able fight them. And the others point out that war should never be used. Only diplomatic resolutions should be used in a modern society.
Nothing in either of these plans can be transposed or removed because each step is essential for the plan to be a success and without Sutler’s plan for takeover of government, there would be no reason for V to start a rebellion. Second, the story is credible. The story of V for Vendetta could happen in the world as we know it today. The externally observable truth of the way things really are can be observed by the mention of a few things. The worldwide problems presented by Sutler and his party started with the “American’s War”, referencing the war in Iraq currently in progress.
I could blame the defeat which would have been the result of my action on him and come out as Peacemaker…But I had a greater obligation than to think only of the years of my administration and of the next election. I had to think of the effect of my decision on the next generation and on the future of peace and freedom in America and in the world.” However, this idealistic standpoint was mere propaganda. In private, President Nixon would favour a more militant and aggressive approach. This contradictory position not only exposed Nixon’s vulnerability to public opinion, but also his disillusion and misunderstanding of the complexities of such a war. It is imperative to understand the factors which influenced President Nixon’s strategies and decision making during the Vietnam War.
This is a war that began with your invasion of Kuwait; this is a war that can be ended only by Iraq’s full and unconditional compliance with UN Security Council resolution 678. 2. I am writing to you now, directly, because what is at stake demands that no opportunity be lost to avoid what would be a certain calamity for the people of Iraq. I am writing, as well, because it is said by some that you do not understand just how isolated Iraq is and what Iraq faces as a result. 3.
