    1,204 words
    Winston Churchill once said "Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events". Today some people believe that should America just withdraw from all of its military engagements and then terrorism would just ...

The most visible changes to boost a...

Anyone who has flown recently has discovered that at most airports when you want to get your boarding pass, you must show a picture identification. This same procedure is followed when checking your baggage outside the terminal building.

    Has Airport Security Gone Too Far? In the wake of 9/11, the once "simple things in life" required not much thought at all now they have been transformed into complicated procedures only brought about in a time of war. Traveling by air has been a very rewarding experience for most but courtesy of terrorism, it has mutated into a list of banned items, random luggage searches, and armed soldiers ominously toting M-16 rifles. One must wonder if airport security, with the addition of machines that sc...

  • Our National Security
    626 words
    National Security It has come to my attention that the current state of our nation is one of peril and doubt. Due to the recent attacks brought upon our nation's soil by terrorists and "evil doers", it is understandable that the current degree of national security must be heightened. Our country can no longer be one of completely freewill with utter disregard to those outside of our borders, but must now come to suspect all inhabitants alien to our land as potential threats to our sovereign free...
  • American Airports And Flight Security
    1,221 words
    The government can implement many new methods to increase security, or better yet give off the image of better security which is what they have predominantly done, yet ultimately there will always be a way to bypass or come up with a new way to infiltrate that measure. The government so far has done a variety of things ranging from the closing of the Dulles airport (permanently), working with the FAA on new security measures, having pilots carry handguns, and a not so specific, profiling. Well t...

For countries like Ireland, however, Annex 17 is a starting ...
