1.[HALF PAGE] Many people are confused by international law because it both prohibits and justifies the use of force. The confusion derives in part from the just war tradition in ?Christian realism” in which the rules of war are philosophically based on morals (principles of examines behavior) and ethics (explanations of why these principles are proper.) Therefore it is important to understand the origins of just war theory and the way it is evolving today, and to also consider how the rules of law shape military interventions and negotiated solutions to international disputes.
The questionfor your Discussion: what is international law, and did you know that there are Rules of war, and a Just War Doctrine?

3.[HALF PAGE] The two world events that interested me the most were the Russian/Ukraine conflict, and the battle against ISIS. The goal of Russia is to restore the Soviet Union and take over the country of Ukraine. This assault originally began because there were Russian citizens living in Ukraine that wanted to be associated with Russia. This allowed incentive and reason for the Russian president Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine, and pursue the take over of the country. On September 5th the Russian president issued a ceasefire protocol that seemed to be an optimistic attempt at peace for the countries. In contrast the Ukraine Prime Minister Yatsenyuk described the ceasefire agreement as merely a pause that would allow the regroup of Russian troops. The ceasefire is part of a peace plan intended to end a five month conflict between the countries. The United Nations says the fighting has killed more than 3,000 people. It has also caused the sharpest confrontation between Russia and the West since the Cold War. This conflict between Russia and Ukraine is a modern attempt of the invasion of a country, and it is apparent that Russia needs to be stopped to prevent future war. ISIS stands for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria and is led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The aim of ISIS is to create an Islamic state across Sunni areas of Iraq and in Syria. They are doing this through large scale attacks aimed at capturing and holding territory. The group currently controls hundreds of square miles across the Middle East. They ignore international borders and only follows Sharia Law. ISIS is known for killing dozens of people at a time and carrying out public executions, crucifixions and other acts. This was publicly carried out in the decapitations of U.S. journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. This caused the United States and other countries to take action against ISIS. With his recent speech on how to deal with ISIS President Obama will use airstrikes and Iraq support to stop this group. President Obama stated in the speech, ?I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven?.
