Security: US Intervention in Iraq - Throughout the years, security has been secluded to this narrow framework of territorial security and ideological dominance whether we look at geopolitical wars or ideological ones such as the Cold War. The security of the individual has eluded this framework until the 1990’s where we saw the birth of Humanitarianism through interventions in Iraq, Somalia and the Balkans. Security had started to redefine itself in a Human dimension characterising itself as a child who did not die, a disease that did not spread, a job that was not cut, an ethnic tension that did not explode in violence, a dissident who was not silenced....   [tags: George W.
