The Justification for the Iraq War (which includes the 2003 invasion of Iraq and subsequent hostilities) has been a topic of much discussion since the George Bush Administration began a major military push into Iraq in late 2001. The main justification for the Iraq war was created through a joint resolution among the U.S. Congress known as the Iraq Resolution.
The United States cited that the intervention was intended to remove «a regime that developed and used weapons of mass destruction, harbored and supported the development of terrorist groups, committed outrageous human rights violations, and defied the demands of the United Nations and the entire world.» Additional reasons have been suggested as «changing the landscape of the Middle East and denying military support for Islam through military pressure on countries that support it.» The justification for the invasion of Iraq was «the United States , taking into account the authority of the United Nations Security Council and its resolutions 678 and 687, decided to invade Iraq and to use all means necessary to make Iraq respond and take the measures requested by the international community.»

Climate change is producing numerous consequences on our planet, such as the increase in temperatures through global warming, the melting of ice at the poles with the consequent rise in sea level and strong meteorological phenomena.
However, there is another consequence that seems to be less well known, and that is that climate change is negatively influencing many species whose survival is being compromised, i.e., it is affecting the planet’s biodiversity.
Biodiversity provides numerous goods and services that are essential for human survival. Many rural communities need the benefits provided by the natural environment for their livelihoods, but this biodiversity, regardless of its benefits to us, has an intrinsic value of its own.
Recently, 2 theoretical approaches have been proposed that attempt to explain why some people are willing to die and kill for their group or beliefs. Identity fusion is a visceral connection to a group that predicts willingness to extreme behaviors for the group. Sacred values theory holds that some people have a visceral connection to a value that leads them to hold it sacred and predicts willingness to make costly sacrifices for those values. The devoted actor model postulates that those who hold certain values sacred and are fused with the group that shares those values will be willing to make exceptionally costly and extreme sacrifices for their beliefs and/or their group. This paper analyzes these theories and the model of devout actors from the point of view of their relationship to terrorism.
Two theoretical approaches have been recently proposed to explain why some individuals are willing to die and kill for their group or for their beliefs. Identity fusion is a visceral connection with a group that predicts willingness to perform extreme behavior for the group. Sacred values theory suggests that some people have a visceral connection with a value that makes them consider that value as sacred, and predicts willingness for costly sacrifices for such values. The Devoted Actors model postulates that those who hold certain sacred values and that are fused with the group that shares such values will be willing to conduct sacrifices exceptionally costly and extreme for their beliefs and for their group. The current paper analyzes these theories and the Devoted Actors model from a point of view of their relation to terrorism.
