I am prompted to write your good office to recommend that our government should take a direct participation in Libya because I am concerned with the recent political development in Libya particularly the unclear circumstances that led to the death of the dictator Muammar Ghaddafi and NTC’s handling of its political prisoners that has been reported as being abused (CBS News, November 29, 2011). I believe that if the US government will take a proactive role in Libya, it will prevent the dissolution of its political gains that was earned by the revolution against the tyranny of Muammar’s government. I believe that it is only with US government direct participation that will ensure that Libya will follow the democratic process of justice and ensure its smooth transition into a real democracy. III. Argument why the official should act as you suggest. This should also have several parts: - a) sketch the public problem, as you see it; The newly founded government of Libya is still very young and still carries the vestiges of the old regime. Being such, it is prone to excess with a predilection towards summary execution as a way of meting justice. This was clearly demonstrated with the unclear circumstances of Muammar Ghaddafi’s death where he was captured alive and was later reported dead alleging that he was caught in the cross fire (El Gamal). Many of us are not convinced. Given the political culture of Libya, we both know that there was a big probability that he was executed. Such, the US government must act so that similar acts or incidents would not happen again. As what we have seen, Libya’s newly installed government is lukewarm in investigating the circumstances of his death if indeed he was caught in the cross fire or summarily executed. It would be better to take a preventive step than to react to an incident that has already happened. The recent development of prisoner abuse is already beginning to surface. With the less open political environment of Libya, I suspect that there are more abuses than what is actually reported. Already, UN had reported that Libya’s new leaders acknowledged that prisoners are being abused (Associated Press November 29, 2011). If these abuses will continue, I am anxious that Libya will lose its political gains if it will degenerate and slide back to its former dictatorial nature of carrying out justice. In effect, nothing changed but only those who are in power. To keep Libya’s political gains, it has to maintain a steady course towards democracy and proper implementation of justice. For Libya to achieve this, it is imperative that the United States government should be directly involved in setting up the justice system of Libya and its government. b) describe the inadequacy of the actions taken on it to date The United States government must learn from history, particularly the lessons taught by the experience of Iraq when the US government left after it liberated the country from Saddam Hussein. Iraq disintegrated and fell into chaos without a clear government (Rashidian). We should not let this happen to Libya. Libya have started a revolution and able to win it under the slogan of freedom and democracy. But we have to understand that this was a close country that only had a bare idea of what democratic process and justice

It is here that most Americans, if they are watching television, can get a view of the candidates at work and showing what their selling skills to the people of America are. Yet, a truly interested voter will take the time to investigate the issues and determine the truth of what each candidate says about these issues.
The Treaty of Lausanne was signed between Turkey and the Allied Powers, which included Italy and paved the way for a new form of colonialism, one which was brutal and authorized by the fascist Mussolini-ruled government. This treaty completed the annihilation of the Ottoman Empire and forced Turkey to relinquish Dodecanese Islands to Italy’s rule.
The duration makes the war to be considered a tough slog. During this war, many U.S. troop and other innocent citizens were killed. This led to more troops from US to be deployed in the country. The war got fiercer after the September 11 attacks (Baker, 2009).
A joint operation organized by a coalition of the United States, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Canada, Qater, Belgium, Denmark, and Norway assumed the responsibility of implementing the no-fly zone restriction authorized by the United Nations Security Council.
The author states that McCain went on to call for a ‘coalition of the willing’ to go in immediately and enforce a “no-fly zone.” Obama recklessly stated that “Qaddafi must go” which indeed has become the consensus among most nations but is it responsible for a world leader to make that statement?
A harmless protest in February 2011 turned into an uprising that led to a conflict. International community intervened, and after months of bombardments by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), as well as ground conflict between the opposition forces and the Gaddafi forces, the Gaddafi government was overthrown.
In other words, it is the theme of a president’s foreign policy outlined for the country’s role in international politics. From an academic perspective, it can be called the country’s foreign policy, set by the president to be followed during his term.
Capitalism flourishes with free trade and limited restrictions; however, the U.S sugar policy is a protectionist policy that goes against that value. Although legislators must decide about policy by looking at both sides of every
