  • On August 2nd, 1990 Iraq Military Forces Invaded And Occupied Kuwait The Order Was Given By Iraqs Dictatorpresident Saddam Hu - 1,367 words
    On August 2nd, 1990 Iraq military forces invaded and occupied Kuwait. The order was given by Iraqs dictator-president Saddam Hussein. His aim was apparently to take control Kuwaits oil reserves (despite its small size Kuwait is a huge oil producer; it has about 10 per cent of the worlds oil reserves). Iraq accused Kuwait of breaking agreements that limit oil production in the Middle East. According to Saddam Hussein, this brought down world oil prices severely and caused financial loss of billions of dollars in Iraqs annual revenue. Saddam Hussein had the nearly hopeless task of justifying the invasion. Iraqi borders were not created until World War 1. There was also a further and more obvio ...

  • Saddam Hussein - 575 words
    Saddam Hussein Saddam Hussein, an Iraqi political leader, was born to a poor Arab family on April 28, 1937. Hussein studied law in Egypt after his attempt to assassinate the premier of Iraq, Abdul Karim Kassem, in 1959. In the summer of 1968, the Baath party returned to power and named Hussein as deputy chairman of the Revolutionary Command Council. Hussein has been described by many as the most powerful person in Iraq because of his intimidation of enemies, careful control of his political power, and his military purges. Saddam finally gained control of the Iraq presidency in 1979. His many goals as President included attempting to increase industrial production, reorganizing government pol ...

  • Analyzing Persian Gulf Crisis Between Iraq And Kuwait - 508 words
    Analyzing Persian Gulf Crisis Between Iraq And Kuwait In analyzing the Persian Gulf Crisis originally between Iraq and Kuwait, one must first understand the factors that contributed to the conflict. In 1980, Iraq carried out a major air and land attack on Iran. For eight years, the Iran-Iraq War grew more intense, until the U.S. "accidentally" downed an Iranian plane, killing 290 passengers. Three factors contributed to this war: (1) territorial dispute, (2) religious disputes between Islamic moderates and fundamentalists, and more importantly, (3) a personality conflict (also known as ego-mania) between Saddam Hussein, Iraq's president, and Ayatollah Khomein, the leader of Iran. During this ...

  • Are We Civilized - 935 words
    Are we civilized? We are starting to witness the beginning of a new era. It is full of information and technology, and it will decide how the future is going to be. But despite all our new inventions and ideas that show us how we're better off than the generations before us, have we grown in any other ways? Does being civilized only mean to become more advanced technologically, or does it apply to our moral foundation? It is very obvious that society has developed a lot in learning and technology. Today, we have inventions such as the stealth fighter, the home computer and nuclear powered power plants and naval vessels. Things that were imagined many years back have now become today's realit ...

    ... ed to the Western impact in one or more of three ways: rejecting both modernization and Westernization, embracing both, or embracing modernization and rejecting Westernization. In the twentieth century improvements in transportation and communication and global interdependence increased tremendously the costs of exclusion. Except for small, isolated, rural, communities willing to exist at a subsistence level, the total rejection of modernization as well as Westernization is hardly possible in a world becoming overwhelmingly modern and highly interconnected. Kemalism, which is the embrace of both concepts, is based on the assumptions that modernization is desirable and necessary, that the ...

    Clinton Impeachment Clinton has been impeached for committing perjury and the obstruction of justice in order to try to cover up the present evidence associated with the Paula Jones civil rights case. In 1868, the House of Representatives impeached President Andrew Johnson because he unfairly fired his War Secretary. He was not removed from office because of a Senate vote of 35-19; he was one vote short of being guilty. In 1974, the Democrats marked President Nixon for factual reasons over Watergate and drafted Articles of Impeachment for thought by the full House. Before the vote his main advisors claimed that they would be unable to support him any further leading to his resignation. This ...

  • Gasoline Prices - 1,019 words
    Gasoline Prices The price of gasoline is a major interest to almost everyone in the country and almost everywhere in the world. It seems that every month and sometimes more frequently, gas prices are either spiking or dropping, never staying stable. Gasoline prices are affected by many factors, including the price of crude oil in the world market, supply and demand for gasoline, local market competition, temporary supply interruptions, government regulations, or taxes. Gasoline is produced by a distillation process where crude oil is heated and fumes are captured and converted into many products such as kerosene, jet fuel, and gasoline to name a few. Therefore the price of crude oil, which i ...

The United States demands more gasoline in spring and summer months than in the fall or winter, due to people driving more.

The country is constantly searching for new and more efficient forms of energy. More importantly the country is searching for means of energy that will not make Americans poorer. The following chart shows the price of oil per barrel over the last year. These prices match the increases that take place at the pumps. Countries around the ...

  • Imagine That You Are In Charge Of Setting Up A Civilization What Would Be The First Thing That You Did Many People Might Choo - 1,534 words
    Imagine that you are in charge of setting up a civilization. What would be the first thing that you did? Many people might choose to set up a system of rules and regulations to better control the way the civilization acted and regulated it. After all, a civilization cannot grow and prosper without rules. The civilization would die because no food would be gathered and no one would work for anything. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding had the boys do exactly this. To symbolize the rules and regulations in the boys new society Golding picked a symbol of the conch. By doing this he assigned the conch the responsibility of representing the rules and order in the boys island life. The conch sy ...

  • In The Saudi Desert Just North Of Kuwait But At The Last Minute, - 540 words
    in the Saudi desert just north of Kuwait. But at the last minute, the Allies shifted their forces to the west, south of Iraq. The Iraqis were not aware of these changes. They did not have informative aircraft surveying the Allied movements. General Schwarzkopf also stationed eighteen thousand US Marines in plain sight in the Persian Gulf near the Kuwaiti coast. Thinking there would be an amphibious assault, the Iraqis pulled thousands of troops out of the desert and put them near the coast. They were taken completely by surprise when the huge mass of the Allied assault penetrated northward into Iraq. At the same time, farther west, French and American troops sneaked across southern and centr ...

  • Machiavellis The Prince Has Long Been Used And Studied As A Manual For Those Who Are Already In Power Or For Those Who Wish T - 896 words
    Machiavelli's The Prince has long been used and studied as a manual for those who are already in power or for those who wish to have power. Through rational thinking about political power, Machiavelli is the authoritative source on how one should lead and govern. To illustrate his points, Machiavelli uses many examples of leadership from his life and some from history before 1469. To many readers however these examples are not of relevance anymore because the examples are so dated. To bring the influence back into The Prince, we must put the work into a more modern context. In chapter 16, Machiavelli debates on whether it is better to be liberal or stingy in governing. In a leader both of th ...

  • Political Violence - 1,552 words
    Political Violence Political violence is like a festering wound, in that, without the aid of antibiotics the wound has the potential to depress the immune system and eventually overwhelm the individual, leading to death. In this analogy, antibiotics could represent forces that are always looking for the rogue virus's bent on the destruction of the whole body (society). I often wonder why people resort to violence, of any kind, to solve a particular problem. Questions can be asked of the individual(s) involved in carrying out the attacks, but the questions never seem to be answered in a way that will show why violence is needed to resolve conflict. Rather, excuses are rendered in the hopes th ...
