Due to the events of the 11th September 2001 the USA began its war on terror, and specifically targeted was George Bush’s ‘axis of evil’ which included; Iran, Iraq and North Korea. The USA used their war on terror so to legitimise their actions worldwide thus destroying any hopes for a post cold war collective international security, therefore basing their response to international aggression on protecting their own national interests. This is seen with the invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001. Together with Britain they acted unilaterally in order to remove the al-Qaeda and capture bin Laden, who was the prime suspect for the 9/11 attacks. The USA believed its actions were justified by labelling them as self defence under Article 51 of the UN charter.
It is also blatantly evident that in the past Radical Islamists have taken several major acts of terrorism and violence in an attempt to achieve these goals. It is because of these things that Radical Islam is considered by many, as a threat to world security. The core belief of Radical Islam is to gain complete control of the world and to do so by any means necessary, clearly outlining that Radical Islam is a threat to world security. Radical Islamists draw on the beliefs of Islam and consider their actions as the will of Allah, which calls for his followers to bring the world to him, somewhat like Christianity, however Radical Islamists take a much different and more destructive route in achieving this goal. An Al Qaeda training manual clearly outlined that “Islam does not coincide or make a truce with unbelief, but rather confronts it” which is essentially stating that if people don’t agree with their beliefs, they do not believe in a peaceful resolution, but prefer to use the “dialogue of bullets, the ideals of assassination, bombing, and destruction, and the diplomacy of the cannon and machine-gun”.
Christopher Hitchens – Neoconservatism Christopher Hitchens describes himself as an anti-theist and a believer in the philosophical values of the enlightenment. Dr. Hitchen’s became an activist against Islam when Ayatullah Kohmeini declared a fatwa against his personal friend Salman Rushdie. This event led him to join the neo-conservative side on foreign policy and the war on terrorism. Dr. Hitchens believes that the war on terrorism is both just and necessary. He backs this statement up with numerous facts and hypothetical situations that could’ve happen if the US government had not invaded Iraq.
Model Essay Student’s Name Section Number Why the Atomic Bombs Saved Japan. The decision to use nuclear weapons to stop the War in the Pacific by President Harry S. Truman in August, 1945 remains controversial to this day. Most of Truman’s critics, the so-called revisionist historians, argue that Japan wanted to surrender and had already been defeated, making the use of atomic bombs unnecessary. They say the bombs were used mainly to demonstrate America’s power to intimidate the Soviet Union. The historians who support Truman, sometimes called the traditionalists, agree that Japan had been defeated but argue that Japan was not ready to surrender and was, in fact, preparing for one last great battle that would have cost millions of lives.
These are the people who have decided the holocaust never happened at all. In this essay I am going to explain when I think Hitler planned the Holocaust. Deniers Introduction Deniers are people who totally deny the Holocaust ever happening.

It is said that President Obama is the most Pro War President ever. It is wrong to fight and kill other people whether there is a purpose or not. It’s like playing God. No one has the right to decide and order American people to go overseas and kill. Also, President Obama is indifferent to the US military and national security: Second, for the past few months, his attitude and lack of genuine interests in the US military and national security are very alarming and disturbing.
What is politicization of Islam? Is Islamist organization Hamas politicized in Palestine? Although the number of secular countries dominates over the number of non-secular states, religion remains a major part of many modern societies. In recent years, the politicization of religion, particularly Islam, has become a hot issue in international politics. After the shocking events, such as the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers, the controversial debates on whether Islam plays a major role in foreign policy decision-making broke out.
Despite one of its main purpose being to prevent the outbreak of war, it was useless and did nothing to prevent the outbreak of World War 2. This was due to it having no military force of its own. America, one of the major powers, did not support it. France and Britain the other major powers also did nothing to stop. The League did nothing except protest against Germany’s past aggressive behavior and Japan and Mussolini’s invasion.
The bombs affected the children of the future, who are not to be blamed for anything that took place in the war. They also violate the Just War Theory, and did not give the US any tactical advantage in the war- the bombings were simply experiments to show the world America’s military standing. Along with that, US should not have taken revenge for Pearl Harbor on such a large scale. Some people argue that the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were justified as the Americans had the right to take revenge for the attack that occurred at Pearl Harbor. This isn’t true.
Another Major flaw was that “the country, whose president, Woodrow Wilson, had dreamt up the idea of the League - America -, refused to join it.” The league’s most powerful militaries Britain and France not only suffered casualties, but also economically as they were greatly in debt to the United States. Because of this neither country was enthusiastic to get involved in disputes that did not affect Western Europe. Therefore the League had no military might and could only enforce economic sanctions in hope that they worked against aggressive nations. All these flaws point to signs that the League of Nations was a failure. However, even though there were a few setbacks, the league was a success in many ways.
