US. Terrorism Should the U.S. Accuse Middle Eastern Countries For Supporting Terrorism? Since the beginning of time, there has been good and evil. Sometimes there would be a victory on the forefront of evil and sometimes on the forefront of good. This battle between good and evil has changed with time due to new technologies, new culture, and most importantly, new causes. Some evils such as terrorism have changed radically with time. Today, terrorism faces a worldwide attention and is claimed to be mostly concentrated in the Arab World. The United States blames a majority of terrorist attacks on the Arab World. However, the U.S. should not accuse the Middle Eastern countries for supporting and executing terrorism because the United States harbors terrorists herself, because the United States acts as a terrorist, and because the United States provokes or causes terrorism. The United States harbors terrorists within its own national boundaries. The United States encounters terrorism on her own land caused by none other than her own citizens. The best example of such an act was the devastating bomb, which exploded in Oklahoma City. The criminal was none other than a U.S. citizen named Timothy McVeigh. In a recent article, Time's Patrick Cole claims that before McVeigh was sought out as being the one responsible for the bombing the United States blamed a foreign, and more precisely, a Middle Eastern terrorist organization for the activity (26). However, the recently arrested terrorist, known as Theodore Kaczynski, is also an American citizen who executed his evil plots on Americans, from American soil. Moreover, Bruce Hoffman states in his book Inside Terrorism that various other Americans who act as terrorists, live and work on American soil (83). Americans such as Lee Harvey Oswald have committed some events in the past, such as assassinations. Therefore, the United States undoubtedly harbors terrorists who are responsible for most of the terrorist attacks on American soil. Since the end of the Cold War, the United States has lacked a major rival in world power.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
