Why is this country considered a state-sponsor of terrorism? What sanctions has the United States implemented against the country outlined? Does this nation provide a safe haven for terrorists? If so, for what groups? Do you believe that the country outlined has a chance of being taken off the state sponsors of terrorism list? Why, or why not? Is this country considered a “failed-state”? Why, or why not? What characteristics of a failed state does this country have? (Please be sure to thoroughly read pages 166- 167 in your textbook, which explain the five characteristics of failed states.)
