Homeland Security - 1,339 words
The potential effects of continued mirror-imaging on future US strategy and policy in Homeland Security Homeland Security is the national program intended to ensure appropriate defense of the country.

... s or be allocated irrationally. However, I have to notice that I do not mean by any chance to say that the creation of any additional agency is necessarily evil. Yet, Homeland Security will require from now on more attention on behalf of Bush and his Administration to the proper functioning of any additional institutions. Otherwise, the efficiency of such security policy will be extremely low. As for implementation of new technological advances in detecting any kind of criminal procedures, this is the right direction to follow. They will help a lot Intelligence Department in gathering the adequate information to prepare any sort of unexpected events. They also require substantial financi ...

Terrorism And Other Homeland Security Threats - 1,596 words
Its a little after 9 A.M., at Ronald Reagan National Airport, and a middle aged man of indeterminate nationality has his hand in my pants. Hes not very far down into them, barely over the belt line, but a little of this sort of thing goes a long way (Goldberg 29). This sort of thing, airline security, has reached a new level resulting from the 9/11 tragedy. The quiet solitude stemming from an early morning layover in LaGuardia International Airport is all but interrupted by the feeling of Big Brother watching, glaring at ones every flinch. One does not make any sudden motions to his bag or allow anyone to see him pull his letter opener out to open yesterdays mail because these actions might ...

Violence The Need For Better Security In Schools - 1,594 words
Security in schools is it enough? Perhaps the security in some schools can be better. Look at all the violence that we have had in the schools of the United States. Not to mention the shooting, stabbings, and arguments the students have with their peers and teachers now a days. It seems to me that the student teacher relationship has died out. The student should have a very trustful relationship with the teacher so that he/she can come to the teacher and talk or explain anything to the teacher about school or home. Now the National School Safety and Security Services has a philosophy and it states OUR PHILOSOPHY: Youth violence is community issue. Schools however do not create violence, nor ...

As we gather tonight, our nation is at war, our economy is in recession, and our world faces unprecedented dangersyet the state of our union has never been stronger. In the State of the Union Speech that President Bush addressed Tuesday evening was a strong, confident, powerful speech. From the beginning he made it clear and direct that the nation is still under attack. That it may have won the first battle but the war, and the threatis far from over. And he emphasized that homeland security must be strengthened because thousands of terrorists remain at large. What moved me from his speech was the fact that he acted like a President. He put all the politic competition and rivalries between p ...

... of-the-art equipment that could have been used for agent production. No evidence, to date, has been established for munitions development and/or agent weapons. The experience of the U.N. team emphasizes the difficulty of locating a Smoking Gun relative to BW programs.

USAMARIID (2001) U.S. Offensive Program The United States initiated a review of the potential of BW in 1941-1942, implemented a program in 1943 and had established its feasibility by 1969.

Terrorism - 557 words
The terrorism is developing its weapons permanently. The development of the science and the technology provides opportunities for the terrorists groups to update the new forms and the weapons of the terror.

Short Term Of Us Economic Outlook - 1,027 words
It is very difficult to predict what American economy will be even in the nearest future. Almost no one is certain about future state of U.S. economy now. U.S. investors are worried about everything from possible war with Iraq to global growth prospective. Many economists are concerned that a war in the Middle East would severely disrupt America's economy. This is because America's modest and uneven growth leaves the economy vulnerable to shock. America is in stage of recovery now. This recovery isn't as strong as many executives, job seekers, and investors have hoped for. The recovery is not rapid mainly because the mini-recession last year was the mildest in nearly 60 years. America is not ...

Terrorism - 1,630 words
Why should terrorism command our exceptional attention? That the 9/11 terrorists maliciously attacked the symbolic and actual seats of our economic and military power (WTC/Wall Street and the Pentagon) should concern us if we truly think that future attacks might destroy our society. But who believes that? Government responses seem directed mostly at stopping future similar attacks ... which returns us full circle to the question: why should that have become our primary national goal, at the sacrifice of tens of billions of dollars, of some of our civil liberties, of our travelling convenience, and of many of our pre-9/ 11 priorities? Instead of rationally apportioning funds to the worst or ...

Deficits In The United States - 1,356 words
Perhaps no aspect of American trade is discussed more and, at the same time, understood less than the trade deficit. The U.S. trade deficit appears in the result of a net inflow of capital to the United States from abroad. Because of the stable and free domestic market, the USA remain the most attractive for foreign investments. Basically, the U.S. became a net importer of capital. It happens in the result of the fact that Americans do not save enough money to finance all the investment opportunities in American economy. The inflow of capital from abroad allows to pay for imports over what is exported. The trade deficit represents a mirror reflection of the macroeconomic situation that inves ...
