Borders and Powers
By: Ross Petersen
What are "Borders and Powers"?
An example of an area of political power would be the United States' land. Where this land ends is an example of a border, which would include the edge of Texas and the beginning of Mexico, which is defined by the Rio Grande.
This is an example of what makes a nation powerful. It also explains why it is difficult to obtain too much power our the world.
Many conflicts are caused of borders and powers in a region. A current dispute is in Ukraine, where rebellious uprisings are challenging the government and the country's neighbors.
Who controlled the land that was once known as Palestine has been long debated and has remained a aggressive violent issue. Who had the power in the area and where the borders were has been fought over time and time again.
