"Victory means achieving the strategic goal and not necessarily territory. I maintain that we also have to part with the concept of a land battle. We have to talk about the integrated battle and about the appropriate force activating it. Victory is a matter of consciousness. Air power effects the adversary's consciousness significantly." Commander Dan Halutz Israeli Air Force (IAF), 2001 1....

Globalisation is the process of integration which is international and arises from the mixture of products, ideas, views and some other aspects of culture. Neo Realism and Neo Marxism are the different approaches that have different theories, rules and regulation which can be used by different geological countries to accept the different cultures and the technologies to achieve the globalisation.

The prime minister is just one actor in a wider, interdependent core executive where policy-making takes places in 'a complex web of institutions, networks and practices surrounding the prime minister, cabinet, cabinet committees, and their official counterparts' (Rhodes in Allen and Ward, 2009:238).

Throughout the 1980s there was an evident and growing enthusiasm for the contribution of NGOs particularly for their ability to work directly with the poor and with grassroots organisations (Turner,1988; Gorman,1984).
