That state is the Republic of Turkey and it's primary troubles stem from the past seven decades of acrimonious policies directed at the indigenous ethnic Kurds.

Cold War vs United States
Cold War vs. United States The Cold War ended in 1991 after the Soviet Union fell apart. Since then, Russia's economy paralyzed, and the United States is three trillion dollars in debt, and both counties were weakened by the Cold War because of military spending. 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

Iraq It was a mistake to go into Iraq. Afghanistan, where Osama bin Laden and the Al Queda are, was fair game after 9/11, but we were lied to about WMD and Iraq and have no moral authority to be there - on our own - after we did not get UN support. Now we are begging everyone to join us? Bush was wrong to lead us in that direction. It is also wrong to support the Israeli's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza as the US has done for years, to the death and detriment of thousands of Palestinians w

European Union
European Union Above all, there is a huge economic incentive. With the accession of the ten countries, the population of the European Union will grow by approximately 75 million into an economic area of almost 450 million people and will thus become the world's largest single market, one which is admirably equipped for the challenges of global competition. The economic potential of the candidate countries is considerable: the EU will thus integrate valuable growth markets with these countries. I

ISLAM AND WOMENS SEXUALITY
ISLAM AND WOMEN’S SEXUALITY: A RESEARCH REPORT FROM TURKEY The control over women’s sexuality through restriction, coercion, violence or more complicated forms of political and social manipulation remains the most powerful tool of patriarchy in the majority of societies. Religion is often misused, both as an instrument of this control mechanism and as a cultural system, to legitimize the violation of women’s human rights. However, concentrating on the role of religion in constructing women’s sex

Chemical warfare is the use of natural and man-made toxic substances to incapacitate or kill an enemy. There are many different types of agents used in chemical warfare, some of which are mustard gases, nerve gases, psychotomimetic agents, tear gases, hydrogen cyanide, and arsines. All of which are very poisonous and lethal when exposed to humans in large amounts. Until the 20th century such warfare was primarily limited to starting fires, poisoning wells, distributing smallpox-infected article

Iraq's Side
Iraq's Side One of the items that has dominated the news for eight years is Iraq under Saddam. For years we have been bombarded with western propaganda about Iraq's non-compliance with UNSCOM (United Nations Special COMmision). We have heard about Saddam killing the Kurds and his ‘War Atrocities', we have heard about his hidden weapons of mass destruction. He bombed Israel. He invaded Kuwait. By now we all hate Saddam Hussein. He is a dictator, a warlord, and a sadist. Right? Wrong. This image

Perisan Gulf War U.S. warplanes fired on Iraqi anti-aircraft missile sites in the country’s northern no-fly zone today, the third such incident this week.

The World's Longest War
The World's Longest War
The World's Longest War Where We Are Journals practice a laudable self-censorship of criticism of religions. The most vicious devil worship is mentioned with little comment and then only in crime reporting of the atrocities committed. This is a good thing. Religious hatreds are so easily inflamed, and there is so much history of religious persecution, that we are much better off with this self restraint. Furthermore the separation of church and state is spelled out in our constitution and is pra

Why The Persian Gulf War was not Iraqs Fault
Why The Persian Gulf War was not Iraqs Fault At 2:00 A.M. (local time) on August second 1990, Saddam Hussein sent the Iraqi military across the border into Kuwait, and sparked a war whose repercussions are still being felt. Today what eventually became known as the Persian Gulf War, featured the largest air operation in history; and a senseless destruction paralleled only to Danzig or Hiroshima. Even though Saddam was the one who physically invaded Kuwait, is balking at United Nations resolution
