Nowadays, what I hear from the radio and television programs in the US is about a war against Iraq. A main topic of what American people talk about is how it is going to be. What I thought after talking to young people about it was that they really do not want this terrible fighting. Through my philosophy and anthropology teachers, I knew the background of this war. They said that the US gave weapons of mass distraction including nuclear weapons to Iraq during the Iran-Iraq War. Although the US and Iraq had had a good relationship, Iraq might give those weapons of mass distraction secretly to some terrorist groups, which possibly attacked the U.S. That was why the US requested Saddam Hussein who is the current president of Iraq to resign his possession. However, he did not quit so that the US and Iraq started this war. Through some Japanese Internet news programs and any other countries’ news on the Internet, I realized that this war is not only a matter between the US and Iraq because of possible damage by nuclear weapons and other possible damage, which many countries all over the world may have because of this war. Therefore this war should be finished as soon as possible.
First, this war badly affects Iraqi people’s states of mind because people are worried about the U.S attacking them. They are living in a state of fear thinking they could be dead tomorrow. Although they are Iraqi people who are said to be bad people by American people, they do not have any role in the politics of their country directly. They will be dead instead of their leader (“This is worse than war” 1). If a person were in fear and doubt all the time, the society will not work well aft...

... war does not benefit anyone except the U.S. It is obvious that the US wants to get Iraq’s resources and bring peace into its country. However, to do so, the US has to provide many negative affects to the rest of the world. Actually, Saddam Hussein is bad guy who causes many problems. However, there is no reason that many people have to die for him. I hope we can avoid this possible war for world peace.

- Against the War in Iraq It has been more than one month since the war in Iraq started. The situation between Iraq and the US has been very serious. Many television and radio stations in the US have been broadcasting about the war in Iraq. At first, the war was a very big issue among people in Flagstaff, but as time passed, people did not mention about the war so much. It seems like people in Flagstaff got accustomed to this war. A possible reason for this behavior is because Flagstaff is not likely to be a target of attacks from Iraq.... [tags: Warfare Argumentative Argument Papers]

- As the nature of modern day conflict evolves, the news organization has also been forced to change their practices in order to adequately represent these conflicts to their audiences. “Networked journalism” has played a large role in covering modern day conflicts and its benefits have been instrumental for the work of journalists around the world. While networked journalism has permanently changed the way traditional media outlets operates, it has also created significant challenges for journalism pertaining to the verification of information, the capacity to build networks and adjusting older business models....

- Compassion and Security in the War against the Islamic State The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was once referred to by President Obama as the “jayvee team.” More recently the president said that ISIS has been “contained.” The reality is ISIS has become the apex terrorist movement on the planet, claiming or being assigned responsibility for bringing down a Russian airliner, bombing major cities from Turkey to Lebanon, and unleashing multiple simultaneous attacks in Paris killing 130 people, all within roughly 30 days....

- Countries engage in war for reasons that may often seem to have simple solutions. At first glance, reasons for war can seem petty or pompous. In fact however, the steps to war often are complex and deep, shrouded in history, cultural clashes and religious disputes. The Iran-Iraq war of the 1980’s for instance locked the two nations in conflict for nearly eight years, costing nearly half a million Iraqi and Iranian soldiers, and an equivalent number of civilians their lives, with no real resolution to the dispute....

- In this essay, Michael Apple focuses on the complex patriotic discourses that swept the United States post September 11, 2001. The patriotic zeal, a propaganda war against terrorism, flooded the nation and anyone not exhibiting such sentiments were viewed as non-patriotic, a traitor, and worse, a terrorist. In the aftermath of the horrific act of terrorism, even school children were place on the frontlines of the propaganda war against terrorism through an influx of legislation compelling schools to instill patriotism....

- The Iran-Iraq War was the prolonged war from 1980 to 1988 between two nations, Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Iraq. This competitive rivalry between Iraq and Iran goes back to the days of the Persian empire and the Ottoman Turkish empire. “From the 1920s onwards the nominally independent states of Iraq and Iran sustained historically animosities in changed circumstances, at first still under the direct influence of Britain, and later (after 1958) as truly independent countries pursuing their respective national interests”....

- The Iraq war has been a very sensitive and divisive issue in today's society. Although we can not ignore the cloud around this administration when it comes to potential incentives that going to war presented, (such as oil for profits and retaliation to Saddam Hussein for the Gulf War and treatment of President Bush Sr.), I will look beyond these potential motives to explain why the U.S. involvement in the Iraq War was unjust simply because it doesn't fall into any of the four functions of force authored by Robert J....
