Are we civilized
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 technolo

To have world peace does not mean that United States should increase its military strength. The Realist theory would argue that military strength is important to maintain peace both domestically and internationally. Even though the Unit

In August of 1990 Iraq started its long and vicious attack on Kuwait leaving thousands dead from their torturous reign as Kuwait’s dictator. Kuwait, as defenseless as it was, had no chance against Iraq’s small but mighty forces. It took a collection of United State’s, Britain’s, and France’s elite to put an end to Iraq’s torment on the small country. The torture and torment inflicted upon Kuwaitis during Iraq’s occupation of Kuwait however, has many more reasons than first appears. Iraq’s occu
