Obama picked his national-security team and it is made up of members who tend to disagree on major policy issues. Each one of them is a powerful figure in the political world except for the national security adviser James Jones. Jones is former four star marine general he worked for John McCain but claims no party and doesn’t take any political side. He feels that the political parities and viewpoints shouldn’t interfere with national security. Robert Gates a familiar face will be returning again this year, Obama is the eighth president he has served under. Hillary Clinton was nominated by Obama to be secretary of state, she was a fierce opponent against Obama during the primaries but he knows her foreign policy skills are a huge talent of hers.

The national-security team is only a nomination position and it is up to congress to decide if they like the presidents pick if they do the president gets to keep his pick and they will become part of the team. If not he will have to choose another person and put his pick to congress for approval. This is one of congresses checks against the executive office and it is there for congress to make sure the right person gets the job and tries to keep the president from choosing one of his homies or a member of the fringe elements of society. Obama still has to keep these opposing opinions in check or it will turn out like President Bushes national-security team which turned out into a disaster because Bush didn’t establish control over his…...

...Today’s news Women to drive day in Saudi Arabia Women in Saudi Arabia took part in a protest on Friday against measures that pretty much ban them from driving. Around thirty female, would-be motorists drove their cars in various cities across the country. Their actions were part of a campaign from the Women2drive Facebook site. Manal al-Sharif, who set up the site, was arrested on May 21 and released the following day. She was rearrested after posting videos of herself on YouTube and spent a week in prison. Authorities said she was “inciting public opinion and harming the country’s reputation.” Another woman was given a traffic ticket in the capital Riyadh on Friday, but there were no arrests. Fewer women than expected decided to protest against their inability to drive. Friday’s protest was the latest in a string of incidents of Saudi women driving without a licence and then posting videos of themselves online. Maha al-Qahtani, 39, drove through Riyadh on Friday with her husband in the passenger seat. She said: “This is my basic right. It should not be a big deal. There is nothing wrong or illegal about driving.” Another woman posted a video on YouTube with the message: “All I want is to do my errands or go to work whenever I want.” Many women complain that they spend a quarter of their salary on hiring a driver to take them to and from work. There is no law against female drivers in Saudi, but women cannot get issued with a driving licence to drive in......

New World Order: Not Built in a Day

...The New World Order: Not Built in a Day Luke Nosko 2011-04-02 David Tabachnick Word Count: 3028 The end of the Cold War, marked by the collapse of the Soviet Union, was the beginning of an unprecedented geopolitical scenario in modern times, namely the existence of a lone superpower nation which easily dominated the other countries of the world in terms of military strength and international economic and political influence. With this never-before-seen position of power in the modern, globalized world came the heightened importance of American foreign policy decisions, and the world waited to see how the US would react to being thrust abruptly into this role of the unipole of world power. The first test of US foreign policy as the sole superpower would actually come before the official dissolution of the USSR (though it had been in steep economic decline for some time), when Saddam Hussein lead the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990. US President George H. W. Bush would place this conflict into perspective for the countries now looking to the US for leadership in his address to a joint session of Congress and the nation on September 11, 1990, and it was then that he most famously claimed that the US would strive to establish and protect the concept of a New World Order (NWO): “We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these...

China and New World Order

...China and New World Order Based on what you have learnt in this course, what kind of world order do you think we have now and to what extent a new world order is shaped by the rise of China? In what aspects is the rising China changing the existing world order? World order has a variety of definitions. In general, it refers the pattern of relations between states, behaved according to a set of institutional rules and principles. It changes over time when great powers rise and fall. Suggested by George Modelski, the Long Cycle Theory believes a war will emerge after the rising power threatens the original hegemony and might replace the existing world order. The challenge posed by the rise of China to the western dominance is felt worldwide as her second largest economic status. A question has been asked by an American scholar John Ikenberry – “Will China overthrow the existing order or become part of it?” This essay aims at introducing the current world order and investigating how it has been changed with the inclusion of China. One of the two major types of world order is the Westphalia order which is based on the modern state system. It is the concept of authority on the territory that the sovereignty of states and the fundamental right of politics is self-determined without any intervention from other states in internal affairs. This system highly respects the territorial integrity of states and the legal equality between states that is no matter the size of a......

The New World

...THE NEW WORLD In 1609 King James I commissioned the Virginia Company with colonizing North America between the 35th and 45th parallels. The Chesapeake and New England colonies would emerge as the cornerstones of America. The two colonies navigated the world in sight of different objectives, but ultimately through their economic triumphs and the social and political hardships, these colonies would eventually develop into stability. In an effort to financially benefit Europe, the Chesapeake colony settler’s main objectives were to find gold, silver, a cure for syphilis and a passageway to Asia. The New England colony differed from that of the Chesapeake colony as their main purpose as separatists were to pursue the freedom to worship. After spending nearly a decade in the Netherlands, although fulfilling religious goals, they realized that their children were becoming more Dutch than English. They sold all the land they owned in Europe to finance their voyage for free worship. Nonetheless, both colonies journey was funded by the London Company to make their initial voyage.  Even though the mission was different for both colonies they both shared a detrimental first winter. Both colonies also relied on native Indian support for supplies and food to ensure survival.  Farming was absolutely essential for both colonies to master, and quickly. Religion was found in both colonies and played a serious role in society. In Jamestown you would find Protestants and Catholics,......

...Westerhoff claims that throughout the world, as people reach adulthood, they’ll become resistant to change. At age 30, people who are usually open, aren’t that open anymore because of all the time they spend on work. When a family is made, people are no longer welcome to try new or different things because of responsibilities. Not even divorce or death of a loved one can result a change in the personality. People who want changes in their life fail to make the changes because they set up too many goals for themselves. Nikolas Westerhoff claims that people become resistant to change as they change from adolescents to adults. Part II: Discussion Key Words/ Phrases: Novelty, Personality, Transformation, Resistance, Age, Decrease, “New experiences” Topics/ Subjects: Freedom, Society, Openness, Responsibility, Change, Inspiration, Failure, Power Connection: Nikolas would connect the topic failure to his ideas about resistance to change by suggesting that people have tried to change, however because they have failed to change they now became resistant to change. Someone may have set up a goal and was hasty with it resulting a failure. Since they have failed to change, they become afraid which leads to resistance on changing.

Conspiracy Theories - New World Order

...is the need to constantly expand the conspiracy as new evidence comes to light. An example of this is the climate change conspiracy theory which states that the climate changes are not true and are made up. This is, as we all know, a topic that has been researched a lot, but the conspiracy theorists means the scientists involved are corrupt. After the Climategate scandal in 2009, they even began accusing the major scientific organizations, and this is how the conspiracy theorists expand their theory. And when they expand the theory, it becomes more trustworthy since it seems like there are more evidence behind the theories , even if it is not. - Previously proven theories Some people also uses previously proven theories as reasons to believe in other theories. An example of a proven theory is the theory that government mass surveillance was tracking a large percentage of the world's telephony and Internet traffic. - Small forces -> huge consequences It is also that many people have trouble believing that small forces can have such huge consequences. That is why people have such a hard time believing that a lone gunman assassinated the President of the United States. They think there must be something behind this. - British study – one theory -> several What is the New World Order? • Totalitarian world government As a conspiracy theory, the term New World Order or NWO refers to the emergence of a totalitarian world government. • Secretive power elite –......

The Coming World Order

Upcoming events is hardly possible to predict, but the main factors that will determine the future development are evident now. Just make a reservation: in the scope of this article were very important points, such as the beginning of the spread of nuclear weapons, a progressive weakening of the system of international governance, expansion of the incident or failed states, and others. Recent advances in technology have created a single world market of labor and capital. The ability to act as a high use value, regardless of their location in alignment rates worldwide. In recent years, this factor of a price equalization were used nations with abundant cheap labor and the people who have access to cheap capital. Some argue that the current era of rapid technological progress the merit of work, and some argue that it is a merit of capital. What both camps infringed is the fact that the technology not only integrates with existing sources of labor and capital, but also creates new ones. Machines replaced the principal amount of types of human labor than ever before. How do they reproduce themselves, they also create more capital. This means that the real winners in the future will not be providers of cheap labor, or the owners of ordinary capital, both of which will be shorter for automation. Luck is in favor of a third group: those who can innovate and create new products, services and......

...The new world In the beginning, the film opens with aesthetic views of meadows and creeks with orchestrated medleys playing in the background. The viewer is almost lured into a serene, calming mood due to the peaceful atmosphere that such images provide. Almost 6 minutes in, a young woman's(also known to be Pocahantas) voice begins to speak as she talks about the Earth being her mother, speaking to nature as if it were to be a physical human. As the nature scenes continue, a man then begins to speak - directing ones view from what was once the peaceful meadows to now gigantic ships filled with English men and a prisoner( who's name later is revealed to be John smith) that is kept in a room under the ships deck. As the focus seems to be on the differing surroundings of the natives and the Englishman, the viewpoint is then set focus on the English men arriving to shore and the natives being alarmed by such big, rare, objects arriving to their native land. As the film progresses on, the Englishman soon begin to cut down each tree with in a large radius in which they have decided to settle. The natives see the future harm that this could bring and are worried for the land they have grown an attached bond to in order to survive and lie in peace. Through out the film small quarrels break out amongst the natives and Englishman, but also with in the Englishman as individuals as the try to survive freezing winters, scarce food supply and little......

Discuss the Need for World Order and Evaluate the Effectiveness of Responses in the Maintenance of World Order

...World order is a term used to describe the balance of power among the nations of the world. It is linked with the political, economic and social framework in the world at a particular time and the effect that this situation has on the relationship between countries. There is an increasing need for world order in the global community due to growing conflict both within and between nations and regions. The increased trade between countries has stimulated the growth of many world order issues such as the access to resources, the inequality in a nation’s distribution of income, crimes against humanity and the growing awareness of human rights globally have also led to an increased need for world order. The importance of world order in promoting peace and harmony can be seen in the dramatic growth and development of international law over the past 60 years. The international responses currently in place include are mainly enforced by the United Nations (UN) and are aimed at the maintenance of world order in the international community. There is an increasing need for World Order in contemporary society than ever before as a high level of interdependence between countries has resulted from the push for globalisation and free trade. This interaction between countries has instigated greater conflict in the world in the form of terrorism, civil unrest and conflict for access to the world’s shrinking resources. Access to resources has been a major source of conflict......

Book Review "World Order"

...Henry Kissinger’s World Order asks, if today’s leaders can rise above their own definition of world “order”, to achieve peace and global stability. Especially when the “balance of power” is constantly threatened by anarchy and chaos. The reason Kissinger, makes this his core enquiry, is because it addresses a challenge that the human race faces today, one that it might fear the most- a total global chaos. Kissinger uses conflict between different nations as the premise to his argument. He does so by looking at the historical experience of different civilizations, even going back to the Dark Ages, as suggested by the subheading of the book. The author begins by defining World Order as “an inexorably expanding cooperative order of states observing common rules and norms, embracing liberal economic systems, forswearing territorial conquest, respecting national sovereignty and adopting participatory and democratic systems of governance”. But in the introduction, the author also lets us know that “No truly global 'world power' has ever existed”. And what is considered to be the 21st century world order, is just a treaty which was devised in western Europe, without taking into consideration, the other countries and civilisations. Towards the end, Kissinger remarks that the leitmotif of our age is science and technology. With countries making huge advances in technology, they consider the security dilemma, before looking at the zero (sum) game analysis. Technology could thus......

Brics Build a New World Order

...Something stupendous happened in the middle of a recession last year. At a time when vast swathes of Europe were being laid waste by an economic tsunami, world trade grew fastest in the last 50 years. It is not hard to figure where this growth was taking place – not in Europe or the United States. The long anticipated South-South show is now a reality. Trade data show a paradigm shift from the advanced nations, which will show an import growth of 0.9-1 percent, while the emerging economies will exhibit import growth of 4.5-5 percent this year. What this means is that the emerging nations are trading more among themselves while the West is being edged out of the fastest growing markets. But behind these statistics hides another story – the United States, the flagship of the Anglo-American empire, is listing. And from its shadow is emerging a new world order being drafted by the BRICS – Brazil, Russia, India, China and the latest member, South Africa. Since the G-7 has turned into a gabfest, the BRICS will increasingly set the global economic agenda. This is not a replay of the Great Game – geopolitical manoeuvres aimed at top dog status – though you can never discount that possibility entirely. The BRICS have no empire ambitions, and in fact are a diverse group of multi-ethnic nations with very little in common. Russia and South Africa are literally and racially poles apart, and India and China are on opposite ends of the freedom index. This rainbow......

A New World

...A NEW WORLD OF COMMUNICATION Certainly, the first president of the United States would be awed by the power of these new media to change ideas about the world, perceptions, and even life itself. At the end of the twentieth century and the beginning of a new millennium, there can be little doubt about mass media's impact on the way the world works. Consider a few examples: The communist world collapsed, and mass media played a key role. In the Persian Gulf War of 1991, the American government seemed to be as much concerned with influencing the media as with fighting the enemy. Our politicians have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on television advertising; they are no longer judged by their ideas or leadership but by their ability to project a telegenic image. Athletes no longer seem as engaged in sportsman-like competition as they are in competing for huge salaries as mass entertainers. The 0. J. Simpson trials and the death and funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, have shown us that celebrities often command the world's media attention more than real issues of life and death for the planet. Most of us have had some direct experience with the impact of media on our lives, and we have witnessed their power in molding institutions and shaping events. What is still debatable, however, is whether that power is being used for good or for ill. In this discussion there are many sides-and that is what this book is all about. Without question, the mass media in America are......
