Consequently, the moment the Incas heard the gun shot they ran in terror as they thought the sound was thunder. Since the Incas broke ranks it made it easy for the Spanish to kill Incas on their horses. The invention of using gun powder has a weapon had come from the Chinese and this knowledge had then been passed on to the Spanish. However the Incas were very isolated and as a result they did not gain knowledge from neighbouring civilizations like the Aztecs.

In the same fashion, the Inca army was one of the most powerful at the time, “defending themselves against neighboring kingdoms” (Meinking). The Incas in Machu Picchu had such a powerful army, most thought that nothing could get in their way.
So, we backed up the people who were claiming to be democratic (not to mention their military was hopeless, because American soldiers were actually thinking these people were joking when they said they had never seen a gunboat). And we decided to team up with not only a big bunch of jerks, but a big bunch of jerks who didn’t even have an army. Then we realized the fight was pointless, and ran away with our tail between our legs, leaving the South Vietnamese soldiers quite the situation. No
Then another time, I came in from outside with my hands full of anthuriums. I looked up at him, and I thought why not. I set up a vase on the table right under his picture… I don’t know if that’s how it started, but pretty soon, I was praying to him, not because he was worthy or anything like that. I wanted something from him, and prayer was the only way I knew to ask” (Alvarez 202).

The war also set a stage for other policies in the U.S and reflected the development that had been experienced in the 19th Century.
Creon was not fond of Antigone doing this and sends her to be starved to death in a chamber. With Creon being very stubborn, nobody could change his conjecture about burying Polynices; not even his own son, Haemon. Tiresias, a blind prophet, managed to make Creon change his stubborn mind and bury Polynices, but it was too late. Both, Antigone and Haemon, had already committed suicide. Antigone could not live her life suffering because of her brother, therefore she withdrew the punishment, which led to her taking her own life because she was not able to honor her brother in a proper burial.

Also, Hamlet killed Polonius with direct action. “Nah, I know not, is it the King?” (Shakespeare 81) This conveys that Hamlet’s original target is the King, but since he is not thinking through; he accidentally
Now while Banquo never plans Macbeths murder like Mary plans Elizabeth 's they both end up being killed for the crime. Macbeth does so because he suspects Banquo will try and kill him to have his son become heir and gain extensive power over the country. Elizabeth does so, because Mary is trying to kill her for power and Catholic rule. Both characters oppose what they perceive as unjustly rule and both characters are murdered. Another similarity would be how their sons got away unscathed, making the character of Banquo 's son, Fleance parallel to James.

Guns, Germs, and Steel were the main cause of the fall of the Inca Empire. The fall was caused because of Francisco Pizarro whose army was small but way more high tech then the Incas.

In the absence of Hernan Cortes, due to conflicting matters in Veracruz, the Spanish interrupted the Aztec people in the midst of their custom, human sacrifice. Hostility erupted throughout the city of Tenochtitlan. Due to the absence and lack of decision making on the part of Montezuma, he was renounced by his noblest of warriors and replaced by a new ruler or “speaker.” The Spanish, attempting to restore order to the city, freed Montezuma and demanded him to communicate and calm his people. It is unclear whether he was stoned and struck by the very people he led or stabbed to death by Spanish soldiers, but on 30 June 1520 CE, Montezuma was slain.
