Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988)

Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988)

Hypothesis

Probably the most logical explanation is that there has been a conflict that is decades
old, that comes from, religious differences to territorial and power ambitions. This war
is a war that is not going to stop until both countries solve their internal affairs,
because the historical background that this two countries have is not an easy one. I think
that the only way to fully achieve peace between these two countries is, for them to come
to an agreement regarding the territories, and another one to respect each other's
religions.



Cause-Effect

Both countries wanted to have a certain peace of land that had an important role on the
trading and pass for both countries, and also the fact that they had different ideas,
religions, and political ideas, took these two countries to a war that was cruel and that
lasted 8 years.



Social science applicable to the problem


We could use, politics, psychology, and anthropology.


Delimited problem

We could focus on the problem that the people from Iran have by having a leader like
Ayatollah Khomeini who is a fanatic, and a crazy man. Good politician, but a cruel and
rigorous leader.





3 Different points of view

From the side of the Iraqis:
They perceived revolutionary Iran's Islamic agenda as threatening to their pan-Arabism.

    the kafirs of kafiristan THE KAFIRS OF KAFIRISTAN The land in the east of the Hindu-Kush range that lies between Pakistan and Afghanistan was called Kafiristan (the land of Kafirs), and there dwelled the Kafirs (the islamic word for "pagan") who rejected any conversion to Muslim and followed their own religion. Guarded by their geography and strength, it is assumed that 200 thousand Kafirs lived there. They drove away the armies of Timur (14C.), Akbar (16C.), Nadir-Shah (18C.), and were complete

Architecture is to building as literature is to the printed word. Vitruvius, a 1st-century BC Roman, wrote encyclopedically about architecture, and the English poet Sir Henry Wotton was quoting him in his charmingly phrased dictum: "Well building hath three conditions: Commoditie, Firmenes, and Delight."

  • Islamic Art and Architecture
    Islamic Art and Architecture Islamic art and architecture points to the artistic accomplishments in the lands where Islam was the dominant religion and from the seventh century on. These lands were the Middle East, North Africa, Spain, Anatolia and the Balkans, and central and northern India.

  • Criticism of Anne Tyler
    Criticism of Anne Tyler The Pursuit of True Happiness Anne Tyler has said that she uses the family unit to show “how people manage to endure together—how they grate against each other, adjust, intrude, and protect themselves from intrusions, give up, and start all over again in the morning,” (Applebee et al. 1007). From this quote, a reader can assume that Tyler encourages perseverance and courage. Life all too often presents challenges, but it is how you handle those challenges that matters. Th

For much of the post-World War II period, the greatest distinction was between the conservative, capitalist, pro-Western monarchies and the reformist, socialist, and neutralist or pro-Eastern republics, many of which were military regimes. Pan-Arabism, which seeks to reunite the Arabs, was a dominant ideological force in much of the region. The failure of Arab unification schemes, particularly

For decades, the PLO depended on the Arab world\'s dipl
