(Johnson, & James, 2008). Despite the comprehensive covert interventions carried out by the nation states, the international law does not support the use of the covert interventional against other states based on the numerous resolutions passed in the General Assembly.

Muslim Americans and the Impact Of September 11th

The "enemy" responsible for 9/11 was never substantially identified: even the role of White House favorites in saudi arabia was not divulged for years because the "28" pages of material redacted from the 9/11 Commission's Report were barred from being seen by the American public.[footnoteRef:7] There was a deliberate effort on the part of the Establishment to whitewash the investigation and deceive the American public about the role of geopolitics in the Middle East and how American leaders were aiding and abetting terrorist cells in the Middle East to promote regime change.[footnoteRef:8] The double standard was rife with hypocrisy… Continue Reading...

Multinational Companies

(GSK), a British pharmaceutical firm, to transfer its management practices to a subsidiary in the U.S. than one in saudi arabia. This is because the U.K. is culturally closer to the U.S. than it is to saudi arabia. Typically, without making significant adjustments to the Saudi culture, GSK would have a difficult time operating in that environment. Essentially, significant differences in culture between the home country and the host country mean that what may work in the home country may not necessarily work in the host country. To explain this, consider the issue of workplace diversity, an increasingly crucial… Continue Reading...

Digital Marketing Details and Plans

for. At present, those options are United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, saudi arabia, Bahrain and Qatar. With that selection page and the ensuing page that loads when a country is selected, there is the common yet effective theme of a mostly white (or shades of white) page. A white background dominates the page with the menu bars and headers being a subtle gray. The presence of color, for the most part, is limited to the clothes that are being marketed and, to a lesser extent, the backgrounds of those same pictures. The verbiage and marketing text on the page… Continue Reading...

Americana Group

together with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, and saudi arabia (Thomas, 2009). Despite the fact that government administrations in nations across the Middle East region are yet to efficaciously deal with this particular issue, or undertake stringent measures to put into effect healthy eating policies, and when such actions are undertaken, Americana Group could face significant pressure to alter its product mix and line of items (Thomas, 2009). A positive impact for the industry in which Americana operates is growth. There is a projected increase in the demand for food in Kuwait, the Gulf Cooperation Council, and more… Continue Reading...

In addition, the research indicates that the system was relatively equally common amid managers at the top-most, middle, and bottom-most level. Correspondingly, the ABC system was being implemented in just about all the corporations… Continue Reading...

The Trump Travel Ban and Why It Is Bad

administration claims the travel ban is a counterterrorism measure, Trump failed to ban nationals from places like saudi arabia, from where the September 11 terrorists hailed. Therefore, it is clear that by targeting Muslim nations, the ban is discriminatory. Several of the lawsuits pending against the federal legislation directly address the discrimination issue ("Trump travel ban: Five questions about the revised executive order," 2017). In fact, Trump clearly admitted to allowing Christian refugees but not Muslim ones ("Trump travel ban: Five questions about the revised executive order," 2017). Social justice is a clear reason to oppose the ban, which… Continue Reading...

Organizational Culture and National Culture Of Automakers Comparison

where resource-rich countries with decent-sized domestic markets still struggle to unlock their potential. Countries like saudi arabia, South Africa or Argentina have all the resource wealth, good local market size, and access to markets to compete with Canada, Australia or European countries, yet they all lag significantly because their economies are constrained by government and culture. Leading Of the three companies, I would lead Renault-Nissan. First, the culture is more aligned with my approach to collaboration, team-building and innovation. Second, it is a truly international culture, and my approach to the world has always been international in nature. I… Continue Reading...

Bin Laden Al Qaeda Financing Crime

as legitimate business activities, and in some cases they actually are legitimate, as when the United States CIA or saudi arabia offers financing directly. In fact, Naylor would do well to further update this chapter as the author does not yet fully grasp the power of the Internet in fomenting terrorist financial networking and money laundering capacities. The Internet enables “a broad reach, timely efficiency, as well as a certain degree of anonymity and security for both donors and recipients,” (Jacobson, 2009, p. 353). As such, the Internet makes it both easier for terrorist organizations to covertly conduct their… Continue Reading...

Nursing Shortages

make them effective in their jobs and careers” (p. 751). This is especially true in countries like saudi arabia, where nursing is viewed as woman’s work but is not valued highly by society—though it is recognized as being highly needed (Alyami & Watson, 2014). To address the issue of staffing shortages, the Institute of Medicine (IOM, 2012) has called for more nurses to achieve a higher level of education so that they can be better prepared to handle the demands of the real-world nursing environment. The idea is that the more educated a nurse is, the more prepared the… Continue Reading...

Israeli-palestinian Conflict

in the area. The US sells weaponry to many regimes in the region, including the largest military power saudi arabia. The Saudi military would then become a proxy for the US in the region. Jihadists usually view the Saudi regime as such already, and already target it, other corrupt regimes like it, and the supporters of those regimes. Furthermore, the US would still have considerable economic interests. Entire compounds in the oilfields are run and staffed by Americans – these would replace military bases as symbols of imperialism. Whether the calls for violence are based on mere pretext or… Continue Reading...

Private Security Vs National Security

as well as with Middle Eastern governments like in saudi arabia when private contractors are used to address domestic situations—such as those regarding Mohammed bin Salmon’s recent crackdown on corruption among several high profile Saudi princes). Private security forces put distance between the public and the government by placing security issues in the hands of private companies and thus getting them off the shoulders of the state. In this manner, states that lack the expertise and confidence in their own police forces can find trustworthy security among private companies; and states that must pacify public resistance to foreign intervention… Continue Reading...

The Yemen Conflict Between Saudi and the Houthis

were engaged in conflict in the region near the Saudi border, drawing saudi arabia into the conflict. This became a front in the Saudi-Iran proxy war, as the Houthi rebels are predominantly Shia. Western powers have traditionally backed saudi arabia in this conflict (BBC, 2018). In recent months, the conflict appears to have spiralled out of control, and may be contributing to a rift between saudi arabia and the UAE. While they have been allies for much of this conflict, each is using the conflict as a means of extending influence and power in the region, but there are… Continue Reading...

How Pictures Shape the Story in Syria

ranging from destabilizing the current regime to supporting it. Turkey, Russia, Kurds, Iran, saudi arabia, ISIS, Israel, the U.S.—all have been on the scene for a number of years, and the stories told about what is happening there are as wide ranging and conflicting as the players and parties involved themselves. For many, understanding what is going on on the ground depends on seeing images of attacks, atrocities, war torn regions, and heroics, captured on camera by photojournalists. President Trump, for instance, is on record saying that he was moved to strike a Syrian air base after seeing the… Continue Reading...

Isis Attacks in America Essay

You may have heard of ISIS referred to in a number of different ways.   ISIS, ISIL, IS, and Daesh all refer to “the jihadist group which controls large swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq” (Irshaid, 2015).  It is the organization responsible for most of the radical Islamic terrorist attacks around the globe.  Not only does… Continue Reading...

Businesses in Kuwait

Kuwait is showing potential and innovation. It is behind only saudi arabia and Turkey in the number of scientific and technological patents produced (USPTO, 2015). Kuwait has emerged as a leader in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries in terms of innovation (“Kuwait sees fastest growth of GCC countries obtaining patents,” 2016). And as the Kuwait Times (2018) reports, “Kuwait has witnessed an extraordinary rise in entrepreneurship and small business start-ups.” Many Kuwaitis are using Instagram, for instance, as online store fronts to showcase products and boost sales, which is an innovative approach to business that correlates well with the… Continue Reading...

Islamic Terrorism Essay

of the two groups, which was a viewpoint advocated by primarily Sunni saudi arabia and many of its political backers, including the United States.  However, the Sunni version of Islam was equally subject to radicalization; the Taliban, which began as a group of mujahideen fighting against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, was a Sunni group, and its radicalized ideology formed the foundation for Al Qaeda. Terrorism: A Many-Headed Beast Terrorism is the use of violence and intimidation to further political aims, and it can be accomplished by an individual or an organization.  What the United States government found in… Continue Reading...

The Federal Reserve and the Gold Standard

problem by using the oil standard—the petrodollar was born thanks to an agreement between saudi arabia and the U.S. in which the former would only use USD when transacting oil exchanges—which made everyone trading oil need to get USD too. However, this prop is not as effective as a gold standard in many ways: first, the oil standard can be taken away—as is currently being seen by countries who make other arrangements for oil in order to bypass the USD—nations like Russia, China, Iran and so on. Plus, it does not place a limit on the money supply. The… Continue Reading...

Negotiating Peace in the Middle East

among the Syrians; however, his neighbors in the region—i.e., saudi arabia and Israel—are determined to see regime change so that they can benefit from 1) laying pipe through his state and collecting profits from pumping oil and gas to Europe, and 2) expanding their own territory and national security (Engdahl, 2014). As an ally of Israel, the U.S. is heavily leaning towards supporting regime change and has so in the past with respect to Syria. However, now that Russia and Iran have emerged as defenders of Assad and have helped to drive back ISIS and the U.S.-supported rebels, the… Continue Reading...

Women Empowerment in Iran

report by World Bank of 100 countries, it was noted that just below saudi arabia and Jordan, Iran was seen to be the third highest in the number of discriminatory tendencies and laws that discriminated against the economic activities of women (Alikarami L., 2016). These discriminatory laws hence send the women back to the home where they play their traditional roles despite being well educated. At the political front, Iran has not had a bright or vibrant history of women politics. The discrimination against women has always pervaded even the political sphere. Before the 1979 revolution a few women… Continue Reading...

Will Congress End the War on Terror

biggest supporter of terrorism in the world. During his campaign, Trump identified saudi arabia as the “world’s biggest funder of terrorism” (Williams, 2018)—and the shift indicates a new alliance between the Saudis and the White House and the potential likelihood of an escalation of conflict in the region, just as the ISIS threat in Syria appears to be mitigated (Colling, 2016). So while some voters and politicians want the War on Terror to end, others support its continuation. This paper will discuss the sides and whether change on this issue is likely to come about anytime soon. Sides to… Continue Reading...

America and the Cold War Mentality

allies’ interests. In the Middle East, those allies are clearly Israel and saudi arabia, and toppling regimes (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran) is what they desire. Since the start of the Cold War, regime change has been America’s bread and butter all over the world. From Italy to Iran to Guatemala to Laos to Cuba to Vietnam and so on, the U.S.’s track record speaks for itself. Recent events in the Middle East show as much, as do earlier incidents like the Bay of Pigs and Gulf of Tonkin just to name a few of the more egregious examples (Paul,… Continue Reading...

Investing in China

as much, especially as it seeks to build relationships with long-term partners like Russia, Iran, Syria, saudi arabia and other countries that may end up playing a major role in China’s One Belt, One Road Initiative (Ferdinand, 2016). Entering into the country via JV and developing a trusting, respectful relationship with Chinese partners, consumers and authorities by applying the Hofstede model of cultural dimensions, the company will do well. The market for its products exists, and in terms of consumers responding to the English language products that the company wishes to sell there can be no doubt that so… Continue Reading...

The Meaning Of American Identity

the idea of being free. Today, we are entangled in endless foreign wars, have long-standing alliances with countries (like saudi arabia and Israel) who probably do not have our best interest at heart. Our independence is not at all like it once was and the American identity is now focused not so much on prosperity as it is on how good it is that we spread democracy around the world. Second, the American identity used to emphasize freedom, but with today’s centralized government and the loss of many states rights over the years, there is not much freedom. One… Continue Reading...

Emirates Airlines Porters Five Forces Analysis

Porter’s Five Forces Analysis Porter’s five forces model is a tool that is utilized to analyze the competitive environment within which an organization or a product operates. There are five particular forces including the threat of entry, the bargaining power of suppliers, the bargaining power of buyers, threat of substitutes and rivalry amongst existing competitors.

The levels of organized crime in countries like saudi arabia, Japan, and China are significantly lower than Chicago. This is because the youths have been given no space to be idle or hang around and about without any constructive responsibilities.

Comparing Nations Civil Order Control

how the U.S. deals with these problems and compare and contrast these approaches to other countries, such as saudi arabia, Japan, England, and China. It will also discuss the factors that contribute to these similarities. Civil order control in the U.S., like that in England, China, Japan or China, is based on the need for the government to prevent a situation from escalating and to restore order. A number of agencies may take part in this type of enforcement. In England in the 1980 Liverpool and London riots, tear gas was deployed to dispense with and deter crowds from… Continue Reading...

recognized as legitimate, which was why force had to be applied. In saudi arabia, state power is manifested in the form of a theocracy in which authority is granted by way of the religious culture, which serves as the dominant force of information in the Kingdom.

Uae and Japan Relations

a few other countries in the region including Kuwait, saudi arabia and Qatar, with relatively smaller mounts from the rest of the world including most especially Iran and Russia (Lind, 2014). This heavy reliance on crude oil and gas imports from the UAE has already had some profound implications for these two countries’ future relations. For example, most recently in April 2018, Japan and its top trade partner in the Middle East, the United Arab Emirates, agreed to continue to expand economic, political and defense partnerships as well as an investment protection agreement that resulted from Prime Minister Abe’s… Continue Reading...

Gender Equality in Arabia

and women’s empowerment in the countries compromising the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which include Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, saudi arabia and the United Arab Emirates. There are a number of reasons responsible for this situation. Firstly, these countries are all predominantly Muslim. Traditional gender roles (and stereotypes) largely exist in Islam and in countries which adhere to this faith as their national religion. Women are supposed to remain covered up in their raiment and relegated to domestic roles. The problem is that women account for approximately 50 percent of the population in the GCC countries, yet only constitute approximately… Continue Reading...
