The terrorist attacks of September 11 led to a lot of pressure from the public to find those responsible and bring them to “justice”. In order to do so, President Bush declared a war on terrorism just a few days after the attacks, but little did he know that this very decision would also bring devastating consequences to many countries. Over time, people have been losing faith in the war and in its purpose. Consequently, countries whose economies have fallen under the Military Industrial Complex have manufactured a societal fear against Muslims and jihadists. As a result, they are now being stigmatized and portrayed as the enemies of democracy, and of the United States in particular.

Reasons for Break Out of World War One 1. War broke out as a result of a combination of short and long term factors. The system of alliances contributed to the outbreak of war as this caused tension between the countries and everyone became suspicious of everyone else. The triple alliance consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy, and the triple Entente consisted of Britain, Franceand Russia. There was a lot of mistrust between the alliances and if say Russiaand Britainwere to fall out, then all of the countries would be involved.

I believe that this was the spark that triggered war and caused it to be declared but not a main long term cause like the alliance system. In conclusion, the causes of World War One included many factors both long term and short term. Some factors go deeper and contributed to the tension and rivalry developing in the nineteenth century among the Great Powers stage. Such as things involving politics, cultures, economics and what I believe to be the most important, the alliance system; lots of other factors tie in with the complex web of alliances.
Iraq and Middle East are the most threatening countries associated with terrorism and the United States government is trying to control the threats by sending its army to these two countries. The paper explains terrorism and the efforts which the US government has put in place to help stop terror attacks. Terrorism involves a person or a group of people causing threat to the life of others for the purpose of self-determination. Terrorism is associated with politics and in most cases the terror acts aim at influencing political decisions in a country. Terror attacks have created fear among the citizens in America who are always suspicious due to the threats issued every day by other states like the Middle East and Iraq.
However, before I begin my argument, I must establish a working definition for ‘terrorism’; an important and controversial issue in itself.

Terrorism against the United States has been a security issue that forced the government to establish the Department of Homeland Security in 2002, which is tasked with spearheading counter terrorism measures. American has experienced terror attacks on its home soil and against its foreign interests, making terrorism the biggest threat that is facing the country in the twenty first century. It is evident that even small terror groups can access weapons that can inflict catastrophic damage against the United States. Terrorism has extensive adverse effects against the country ranging from economic, social, and political to psychological effects. Based on these effects, more attention has been focused on preventing and disrupting terror attacks, but less attention has been directed towards understanding motivations behind terrorism.
