SAFET Y of the nation. This is the primary aim of the application of the different procedures implied in creating a much safer society that is best to serve the values of the people living within the communities that are known for freedom and popular understanding of democracy. This in particular includes the United States which is understandably noted for its realization of democracy and the importance it particularly makes certain in the different laws and regulations it creates in the ways by which it reconnects itself with all the other nations around the world.
Possibly, through the existence of these major elements of national status, the United States is noted for always assuring that the entire nation is under a specific level of security that nurtures its belief and upholds its dignity towards the importance of democracy among its people. This is the reason why it has naturally been debated how the nation's governmental administration should deal with the threats to their homeland security while being able to find the right procedures needed to deal with the accused terrorists who are within the territories of the United States (Worth, et al 1999: 17). Through the laws that had been made dealing with these individuals lawfully had been naturally created to at least protect them too of their rights as humans. This is the reason why it has naturally been constantly debated how a homeland security law could actually be balanced and impartial in handling both the values of the country and the values of the accused individuals of terrorism, despite the fact that at some point, some of these accused individuals have already been proven of giving lesser respect to the humanitarian values of those who have become their victims. Hence, as a major process of approaching the issue, the new administration handling the US systems today under the Obama-Biden rulership tries to revert everything so as to make an implicative balance in the ways by which they handle the needs of the country to be safe and the lawful dealing they have with the accused terrorists.
2. The U.S. has faced threats from 'asymmetric' enemies throughout its history. Discuss the characteristics of asymmetric threats and one historical example of this type of threat and its impact on the U.S. Then discuss the government reaction to the threat and any lessons that could be applied to countering the modern threat of terrorism.
