The resolution started a war that lasted nearly eight years and killed over 58,000 U.S. troops. The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution allowed the president to take all action necessary in order to resist any attacks against the United States. This decision by the U.S. was a big turning point in the war because it not only allowed the U.S. to defend itself, but to also attack any enemy forces against the United
The teams embodied the spirits of the fans bringing fierce competition with them to the ice. The 1972 Summit Series between Canada and Russia was more than just a game because of the way it magnified the conflict of Communism versus Democracy, the ongoing tensions between the people of these two countries, and the existing rivalry between the two teams. The 1972 Summit Series put an emphasis on
America is being invaded. United States politicians let it happen, and say there is no problem. This enemy is sneaky, patient and has been trying to conquer the west for many years. Islam is the enemy and it is only a matter of time before its followers commit jihad against America. The Muslims are coming to America to radicalize people and attack Americans.
There have been a number of effects on the everyday lives of Americans made by the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. First of all, United States troops invaded Afghanistan less than a month after the World Trade Center attacks to release al-Qaeda’s grip on the Middle East. In 2003, the United States troops invaded Iraq, which was not directly related to the attacks but was an important weapon in the War of Terror. The United States stepped their game up in many departments around the country. They upgraded the airport security, had a lockdown on immigration and deportation, and many more things that could ever be a threat to the U.S. and its
The French and Indian War was about expansion and spilled over to North America from the conflict between the French and British in Europe. The war had many battles throughout North America, but no other battle was as time consuming or difficult as the Battle of Fort Duquense. The Battle of Fort Duquense was based off of strategic placement between the French and British within the Ohio Valley that took part over multiple attempts by the British to retake Fort Duquense. The many battles for Fort Duquense introduced George Washington’s military leadership, who participated in every conflict between the French and British for the fort. The Battles for Fort Duquense would prove to be instrumental in the victory for the British and future expansion west of the colonies.
When George W. Bush delivered his “Freedom at War with Fear” speech at the Congress on Sept 20th, 2001, America has just suffered from the single deadliest terrorist attack on US soil. Apart from the intention of establishing himself as a capable leader in times of crisis, Bush’s speech dealt primarily with how terrorism has trampled the very core of American values and how America should respond accordingly. Knowing that Americans were already raged about being attacked on their homeland (“our grief has turned to anger”) and the fact that many demanded actions (“and anger to resolution”), Bush’s general purposes was “strengthening commitment”; more specifically, to strengthen citizens’ and congressmen’s commitment to a long-term war on terror “until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated”. Throughout his speech, Bush extensively used common knowledge – universal beliefs and values shared by people of different cultural and religious background1 – to support his argument. He mentioned freedom, a value held highly by most Americans, thirteen times during the speech.
America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001. Little did we know that this would affect the nation for years to come. Shortly after the attacks on 9/11 the Government acted very quickly. As stated in an article by Jaeshin Kim, “The Bush Administration launched the bombing of Afghanistan, and Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act allowing law enforcement powers to detain foreign nationals or immigrants suspected of terrorism” (Kim 1). In situations as these, the President has no option but to quickly react, so he did.
For many years, the US Government has used basic interrogation techniques in order to force information out of prisoners and terrorists. However, after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the US Government initiated what they called “Enhanced Interrogation”. They initiated this process with the goal in mind to get more information out of terrorists or potential terrorists for the prevention of future attacks. No matter how controversial the methods, the CIA’s new methods may have good intentions, but proved ineffective when it mattered most. One method of interrogation used that most people are familiar with is a technique called “waterboarding”.
In these 19 years, conflict had caused a huge impact on the involving states and the neighboring states. During the fight, both sides have use different technique and strategy to attack each other including US using chemical weapon that caused the lost of many lives and still strongly affected on people nowadays. II. The Consequences After the war was finished, there were many things happened as the consequence of war that impacted on Vietnam, USA and the neighboring countries that involved. So, what were the impacts as a result of the war on the involving states?
In most cases though, they target to kill a large number of people. Thus, while coercion is an element in all terrorism, coercion is the paramount objective of suicide terrorism. The number of attacks using suicide tactics has grown from the year 1980 to 2005. These attacks have been aimed at diverse military and civilian
The battle was deadly for thousands of French and British troops. Currie confirmed that his supply and ammunition lines were laid down before he entered the fight. His infantry was divided into exact units, each of which had a main objective. As a result, his battalion acquired the ridge, which was a key moment both in the war and in Canadian history, as other nations took notice of the contributions of Canadian troops to the Allied effort. For this, Currie was promoted to lieutenant-general in charge of the Canadian Corps.
Born in a period of rapid change for Canada and the territory surrounding it, he was the voice of the minority people during the resistance in Red River. He helped create a province that had rights that were best for his people and in doing so, solidified their future. He was a rebel and a madman, trying as always, to help the Métis during the North-West Rebellion even as his mental instability began to take hold of him. Until the day he was hanged so controversially, Louis Riel was a man of religion, of politics, and of belief for his culture. His actions influence Canada even today.
The Canadian political system is based entirely on democracy. As a democracy it has the duty “to protect itself against the forces of dissolution as soon as they [appear]” (Pierre Trudeau 133). Few people would disagree with the government’s decision to invoke the act. Surely because of the apprehension, almost everybody in the nation was feeling during the violent insurrection in Quebec. Resulting from “seven years of terrorist assaults in Montreal and Ottawa” (130) in which “resulted in six deaths” (Eric Kierans 181).
1. a) Confederation was the goal of many prominent politicians during the mid 1800’s. What did they hope to achieve and why? a lot of canadian politicians wanted to get all the territories in canada and the goal was to make a country. But because of all the wars that the british french and the first nations people fighting for the land a lot of people from all sides at time people still had treated their enemies in a bad way. The canadian government wanted to create a big country because they thought that if they create a country with a lot of people they thought that they would be a powerful and a strong nation.
Prior to the September 11th attacks, the group had been linked to several more attacks including attacks in Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Turkey, Algeria, Israel, the United Kingdom, and many more places. (The Editors of Encyclopedia Britannica 2) All of these attacks trace back to the main mastermind of the group: Bin Laden. He attacked so many more places besides the U.S. which shows his overall threat to the whole world. And even though he always claimed to follow the “purest form of Islam”, many experts insisted that he was covering up the faith’s edicts against killing innocent people. Islam draws boundaries on where and why holy war can be waged but Bin Laden declared the entire world as fair territory.
