The United States, could not win the war without the soldiers who fought in it, and they cannot give Iraq the freedom promised if they do not have enough men and women in combat. The stop-loss program that President Bush set up and put into play is something that was very needed in the country during this time of conflict. In conclusion, there are many reasons why the “back-door draft” is something that is needed in today’s society. American is trying it’s hardest to spread freedom and democracy around the world, to countries that have not been able to obtain it on their own. The military plays a massive role in the gift that America is giving to Iraq, without the military the old Iraqi government would still be in charge, and they would be a lot further away from freedom.
He told others through morse code but they denied him death. The life that Joe Bonham led after his injuries was in no way glamorous but instead the worst possible way to live When I originally started reading this book I thought that war was a necessary part of our society to keep other countries in order, but now I realize that war serves no purpose whatsoever. It is just a waste of resources and life that could be better used. I still believe that we should have an army to protect us but I now feel that we should use more restraint when sending in military force. In most cases it is not necessary to shed blood in other countries.
Even though the name has changed to the march toward freedom it is the exact same thing as the war on terrorism. The U.S. is full of Euphemisms and the war on terrorism was changed to the march toward freedom mainly because most Americans cannot face reality. These same people who cannot face reality are the same people who are hurting the war. Whether these individuals like it or not we are at war and complaining will not do anything to benefit it. Many people argue that polls state that most of the U.S. opposes the war this obviously cannot be true because after all Bush was elected our president by a majority of the American people.
Forcing young men and women to take out two years of their lives to serve for our military is not even close to following the idea of a free country. We have the right to choose what field we want to work in, and we should have the freedom to do so. Forcing any person to do anything will, if not initially, ultimately cause feelings of, for lack of better words, hate. Furthermore, trying to control someone will almost always end in rebellions. If we take our history books, world or American, we see example of this everywhere.
While it is clear that no two wars are the same, almost every war requires at least one thing: men and women who are willing to risk their lives and fight them. Volunteering to fight in a war is a sacrifice that most of us will never even be able to comprehend making. Not only does fighting involve the obvious physical danger, but the mental and psychological toll that a war has on a soldier can be absolutely devastating as well. We hear countless horror stories about life fighting in a war, and also life afterwards. However, despite the dangers, millions have made this sacrifice bravely and willingly, and unfortunately; millions more may do so in the future.
Besides, gun control is almost too controversial to consider. Any action taken, whether to control guns or not, will result in heavy opposition. While gun control is the most obvious method thought to reduce gun crime, the fact that we are so divided on the issue means that we should try a different method, such as controlling gun crime, not guns. Reducing gun violence in this way would be more agreeable to the general population than a violation of the Constitution, or an only partially-favored decision by the government on this contentious issue. A second argument against gun control is that it is often unnecessary.
They obviously did not like having their rights taken away. Why else would they go to war to be free from tyrant who controlled what they could do or not do? They believed so strongly in the rights we take for granted. Would you go to war for these rights like they did? Without the second amendment we have now we would not be able to fight a suppressive government.
The Draft in the USA The draft is a taboo subject in America, but regardless of its controversy it is a subject that must be examined. The daft, however rash, is essential for America in case of a national emergency. Many people in this age of America lack patriotism for their country. Of course, many citizens ignore the fact that they are living in one of the only countries that offer you freedom and the choice to succeed as far as you want. However, “Of those to whom much is given, much is required” (Mackenzie) and all that is asked of you in America is to give yourself to her when asked.
One of the most controversial issues in the world today, especially the United States is gun control. Civilians feel that crime will cease if there are laws prohibiting guns anywhere. Others say that guns are our only weapon used for self-defense. Many people stand for and against this issue and there are plenty of reasons why we should stick to one side. Gun control should not be allowed because not only are guns needed for self-deference, many people rely on guns for survival.
There are few arguments that are pro the “back-door draft” yet there are many more arguments that are against the policy. This paper will explain why the reasons why the policy is something that will just destroy America, such as people being forced to say in war, their families being affected, the volunteer military becoming a non volunteer, and even what it has done to some of the soldiers. President Bush put the “stop-loss policy” into effect giving the military the power to keep military personnel for up to twenty-four months longer, in a combat zone or in a high-risk area. If a soldier’s military group is being shipped over to fight the War in Iraq, then the soldier would have to go with them as well. It does not matter if the soldier only has a month left, it would not matter and he would still have to go with him.
