DQ1 CAUSES OF WAR

Apply one of the theories to a 20th- or 21st-century war that has occurred or is currently happening. Be sure to use concrete examples from the wars and the lecture. Also, comment on two other classmates’ posts, relating the different causes to their choices.

DQ2 TERRORISTIC THREATS AND RESPONSES

Much has been made about the United States’s use of drone strikes to root out terrorist threats, mainly in the Middle East. Comment on this as a preemptive strike against terrorism, but also comment on how some may see it as an act of terrorism.
