    The Frames of the Iraqi War There are many views, theories, perspectives, and ideas pertaining to the War in Iraq. Throughout the last three years, as more and more information becomes available, the reasons for going to war with Iraq has changed. The War in Iraq would be considered a social movement. Therefore, it has many collective action frames, which legitimize a set of beliefs about a certain action or movement. The first pro-war frame is the first reasoning that the government gave for go...

    George W. Bush may not be a bad man; however, he is not a good president. Perhaps his presidency started to go downhill when the first hardship of his term came along, the September 11 attacks. Bush had launched a War on Terrorism shortly after. Bush ordered the Taliban to hand over Osama Bin Laden and when the best they could offer was to bring Bin Laden to be tried under Islamic law, Bush decided to invade. When in Afghanistan, the U. S. took many prisoners who he believed were affiliated wit...

    JD 2 Logical Fallacies In this editorial from the Citizen-times, we are considering some issues about Iran and their uranium enrichment program. The foreign minister of Iran said that it would be against the 'ways of Islamic thinking' to produce weapons of mass destruction. Well, it should be against anyone's ways of thinking to produce weapons of mass destruction. There are only a few reasons to make uranium, and most of them have to do with the making of explosives and types of weapons that cr...

    There is an opinion that Americans cannot speak sincerely as they fight not against the international terrorism, but against the world intervention of Islam in Christian civilization. At least, it corresponds to the conclusions derived from report made by National Intelligence Council in January 2003, two months before the Iraq invasion. According to this report, "the approaching war had the potential to increase support for political Islam worldwide and could increase support for some terrorist...

    Just cause is the first of the many criteria in the Just War Theories. (Walzer, p. 45) It may also be the most important of all the criteria. Most theorists hold that initiating acts of aggression is unjust and gives a group a just cause to defend itself. (Walzer, p. 60) This can be as simple as an insult from one country to another or as complicated as a trade embargo on one country from another. Although the previous examples are referred to as acts of aggression, it has been commonly held th...

    The greatest threat to the United States of America lies not in the weapons of mass destruction being harvested in poor countries such as Iraq, but in the arrogance of her own government. For a year following the attacks on September 11 2001, the Bush administration has been making war-like speeches against countries such as Iraq, North Korea, and Pakistan concerning their 'build up of weapons of mass destruction.' Such threats are now nearing true as the crisis in Iraq continues. The American g...

    U. S. History The War in Iraq Since the end of the Gulf War of 1991, Iraq's relations with the United States remained poor. In the absence of a Security Council agreement that Iraq had fully complied with the terms of the Persian Gulf War ceasefire, both the United Nations and the United States enforced numerous economic sanctions against Iraq throughout the Clinton administration, and the United States and the United Kingdom patrolled Iraqi airspace to enforce Iraqi no-fly zones that ...

    Leaders of the United States and Britain are under relentless questioning over whether they relied on intelligence estimates that deliberately exaggerated the threat of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) to justify waging war. This is a matter of grave concern for Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi as well, since he accepted fully the American and British rationale for the war. In attacking Iraq without any specific United Nations resolution, the United States and Britain asserted that Iraq ...

    Back in the early 1980's, there was a war between two neighboring countries, Iran and Iraq. At that time, the United States was an ally with Iraq. To help Iraq win their war, the U. S. gave Iraq some biological and chemical weapons. The United States Army also helped train the Iraqi military. The weapons the Iraqi Regime was given were used numerous times on the Iranians and the Kurdish population of Iraq. During the early 1990's, Iraq invaded Kuwait. The United States did not like the Iraqis i...

    1. The author is showing that in the doctrine that President George Bush handed down there are flaws. These flaws may allow the most powerful nation or realm to impose their will as they see fit. 2. According to the Bush doctrine, a rogue state is a regime that brutalizes its own people, seeks to acquire weapons of mass destruction and expresses hatred of the US. 3. A pre-emptive strike is justified by the Bush administration as a legitimate form of self-defense. In the tradition of internation...

    The United States is completely justified with invading Iraq. First of all Saddam Hussein would be a worse threat if not stopped now. He may have done nothing to start this war, but this war is also a war on terrorism. Many have seen the photos of what Hussein does to his own people, humanity cannot let this happen. The Iraqis deserve a free and democratic government. It is not right to let them be ruled by this dictating tyrant anymore. Finally we must rid the world of a sadistic, war mongerin...

    According to people in Iraq and even the U. S the real reason for war wasn't weapons of mass destruction it was much more than that. First of all there hasn't been any weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq which was the main reason for why the U. S declared war and particularly invaded them. Terrorism is another reason that the Bush administration gave to go to war but instead of eliminating it they made it worse. North Korea for example may have nuclear weapons, it expelled the U. N inspec...

    As the war with Iraq approaches with every passing day, many people are convinced that President Bush's intentions are true. The intent of this war, according to Bush, is to disarm Iraq's arsenal of weapons of mass destruction. Now, while I believe that weapons of mass destruction should be eliminated, I believe that the United States has no moral right to make such demands. The United States has in its possession the largest arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (atomic archive. com, 2002), th...

    The past few months have been filled with tension. Everyone has pretty much chosen sides in the debate. The war with Iraq has been on everyone's mind. I don't know about you, but I think that America is not ready to ship off the soldiers.

Terrorism has destroyed our economy and devastated our people. Whi...

    We live in a different world. Once, we could disband our enemies even nuclear-armed ones, without a major war. The Cold War proved that much. Unfortunately, that world order will be gone sooner then we may realise. Today weapons of mass destruction, also know as (WMD), can be acquired with great ease, not only by states, but by private armies of terrorism. One can frighten or strike back against a state attacker with the threat of overwhelming force. But we do not have this option with terroris...

    I think we should go to war with Iraq. Saddam Hussein is trying to or is creating weapons of mass destruction. U. N. inspectors have gone in and are searching for weapons, but the 3 or 4 groups of people only makes up a total of about 70 people. Saddam Hussein reminds me a lot like Hitler. Saddam has killed his own people like Hitler did. Saddam also thinks the same way that Hitler did, they both are evil and two faced back stabbers. Saddam is a liar and a back stabbing cheater. Saddam made an ...
