Citizenship in the World Merit Badge Requirement 3A

Postby ycats31 » Fri Feb 24, 2012 6:09 pm

I am working on the Cit in the World merit badge and need assistance with 3A:
Pick a current world event. In relation to this event, discuss with your counselor how a country's national interest and its relationship with other countries might affect areas such as its security, its economy, its values, and the health of its citizens.

What kinds of current world events do you suggest? I was thinking about discussing the the current situation with Iran having nuclear weapons, but not sure if I am heading in the right direction on this requirement.

The choice of the Iran developing nuclear wepons is a very good choice for a current event.
Without writing this for you, some points you may want to discuss.

How will the US and Europe deal with Iran now?
What is the impact on OPEC?
How does this affect speculators in the oil market?
What is the position of the US Dept. of State?
What countries are aligning themselves with Iran?

Good luck with your research
