  • Blowback, And American Foreign Policy - 875 words
    Blowback, And American Foreign Policy BLOWBACK, AND AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY America prides itself on being the world's largest superpower, and the American public rarely hears about wrongdoings made by the American government. On the occasional occurrence when the media has delivered such controversial news, it is gone before the public really has a chance to absorb all the information. American foreign policy is often times possibly doing more harm than good to foreign nations and the way in which certain matters are handled reflects on the American nation as a whole. In Chalmers Johnson's book, BLOWBACK, he criticizes the American government for not taking full responsibility for its actio ...

  • Chemical Biological Warfare - 920 words
    Chemical & Biological Warfare Ever since the beginning of time people have used tools, which were later called weapons. People have used weapons to defend his or her life, family, property, prosperity, country, and even his honor. Over the years weapons have improved greatly and people are still trying to make them even better. In earlier times when man started using weapons they were made of stones, sticks, fire, or whatever was available to them. Now, the weapons I speak of weren't as harmful and deadly as the weapons of today, but as the old story goes, David did kill the giant Goliath with a sling-shot and a stone.

    Countering Terrorism Countering Terrorism There are currently more than 1500 terrorist organizations and groups being monitored in the United States.

In the future that will require both state of the art measures to monitor terrorist activities and the movement of materials used for these activities, but also response scenarios in the event of an actual incident.

  • Ecstasy - 787 words
    Ecstasy MDMA, or Ecstasy, was first made in a lab in Germany in 1912. The German pharmaceutical company E. Merck patented it in 1914, not as a medicine, but as a chemical for making more useful drugs later on. MDMA was forgotten until 1953, when the United States Army funded a secret University of Michigan study to develop chemical weapons. After learning that MDMA was non-toxic, the government put it back on the shelf. Rumor says that the drug was tested for mind control purposes, or as a "truth drug", but there is not actual evidence of that. In 1978, Alexander Shulgin wrote a book detailing the MDMA experience called Phenethylamines I Have Known and Loved: A Chemical Love Story. Many psyc ...

  • Eu And Usa - 992 words
    EU And USA What does a coherent and unified European community (now known as the European Union) mean to the United States? Is it a threat, a competitor, or a partner? Or is it the three combined together? I think it is the three combined together.

This could be demonstrated using different economic, political and military examples. First, lets look at the role and involvement of the United States in the Formation of the European Union. The United States has maintained diplomatic relations with the European Union since 1953, when ...

    November 28, 1999 I was one of only nine survivors of the Waco blaze -- 74 men, women and children died -- and I've devoted the last six years to understanding what happened there. Back in 1990 I had been drumming in a stagnant Los Angeles rock band when I met and befriended David Koresh. I needed some new drumsticks, and on the way to a gig stopped in at the Guitars R Us on Sunset Boulevard. Seeing the sticks in my hand, two strangers introduced themselves and asked if I was playing in a band. The two were David Koresh and Steve Shumacher, the closest thing Koresh had to a deputy. Schumacher gave me his card and I promptly handed it back. The backside was full of Bible verses. You guys are ...
