Opposition to the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War The two events protested the war in Washington, D.C. On 24 April 1971 and Anti-Vietnam War demonstration in 1967 demonstrate a large number of the American population were opposed to U.S. involvement in the South Vietnam during the course of the Vietnam War. Public opinion was strongly against the war from 1967 to 1970, which resulted in only a third of Americans supposed that the U.S made a right decision over participating in Vietnam War. It is why special groups led the anti-war movement to avoid America 's involved in the Vietnam War.
Throughout the first paragraph of King’s speech, he used emotional diction with words such as struggle, poverty, and poor to prove that the war in Vietnam was bringing down the American’s and their families fighting overseas. King proved this partly with the quote, “America would never invest the necessary funds… in the rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued…” (King, Beyond, 9). King was establishing his point that America was more troubled about healing and adjusting other countries, but would never invest the same in their own country. He was in the process of proving that it wasn 't a money issue in America, but an equality issue.
The goal of the 415 BCE play, The Trojan Women was to discourage war in the ancient Mediterranean world. The play showed the hardships that came with war in an attempt to end violent conflict. The same can be said about the 1971 film. The cinematized version of the play was released amidst the peak of Vietnam protest and aimed to show, yet again, the consequences of war. The film is one of the more interesting war films because its main characters are not the soldiers, but the people affected by the loss that war brought them.
Therefore, Ho had to put down the French and Japanese harshly, citing the war crimes that they have committed against the Vietnamese, to justify Vietnam’s “right to be a free and independent country” . Ho, through this speech, had to unite his people as one, and justify the country’s independence domestically and internationally because Vietnam was in a limbo state when Japan left and the French had not yet returned. Domestically, when delivering the speech, Ho condemned the actions of the French and Japanese harshly in an attempt to unite the people. For instance, he exaggerated the war crimes that the French enacted on them, such as forcing them to use opium, separating Vietnam into different regimes, and wrecking their unity .
The United States responded with Operation Rolling Thunder, which consisted of sustained bombing in North Vietnam. Instead of intimidating, pressuring, or frightening the North Vietnamese, the bombing raids of Operation Rolling Thunder solidified the North Vietnamese’s thoughts that the United States was intent on destruction. This reminded the North Vietnamese of the French, and increased their resilience. Chapter 6 – Into the Abyss, 1965-1966 One reason why the United States had to aid South Vietnam in the war was due to the fact that the ARVN suffered from desertion, absenteeism, cronyism, and nepotism (117).
In the speech Chavez says, “We are also convinced that nonviolence is more powerful than violence.” He then goes on to say that violence causes deaths and demoralizes the people, while nonviolence attracts people’s support and is morally just. The use of juxtaposition as a rhetorical device throughout the whole speech shows the pros of nonviolence and the cons of violence. This technique helps Chavez develop his argument because it creates a favorable bias
Many conservatives did not support the boycott and saw King as the cancer of the movement , and, therefore, they would approve of his arrest. King was known amongst conservatives and liberals as law-abiding citizen who preached peaceful protests. Yet a person who is arrested is typically associated with crime, and the photograph calls to question the validity of King's lawful nature. The image works to criminalize King, and to depict him as culpable and at fault. King himself embodied the civil rights movement, and his arrest implies that the black protestors are criminals, which works to negatively portray black activists during the Bus Boycott.
The song One Tin Soldier, written by Dennis Lamber & Brian Potter, is a song that is about the demonstrations in America during the Vietnam War. This song is trying to say that the higher-ups have something they want which is “Peace on Earth”, or in this case the Earth being Vietnam, they want to end the war. The artists are saying that the conditions of these demonstrations are caused the by the ‘One tin soldier riding away,’. It seems like the artists make it so that the soldier is not going by will, they’re forced to go. This is referencing the draft, a ‘soldier’ leaving town heading to war, causing the people to be angered.
Ancient literature serves as a revolutionary inspiration for modern civilization. Consider the play “Antigone” by Sophocles, Antigone is a symbol of justice and sacrifice towards the minority, and a symbol of chaos and destruction towards the government. Presently, it is believed that books or plays like these (about revolution) have been banned in fear of people starting their own revolutions. For example, in Thailand people have been arrested for doing the three fingered salute from the book, The Hunger Games. Do not be blind to the effects of what a few pages can actually cause.
Not only does FDR convince the audience to retaliate by appealing to their emotions, but he also convinces the audience that retaliation is necessary by allowing the audience to see the logic behind the attack on Pearl Harbor. He states that "The United States was at peace with that nation and…was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific." This proving that the United States had not done anything to provoke this attack. Because the U.S. have done nothing to deserve this attack, FDR believes it is only logical to fight back. FDR wants the people of the United States to know that they do not deserve to be walked on.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s assassination was just because he attempted to end the Vietnam war , restructure the CIA. My counter argument is that it was unjust because after he was out of office, he stay focused on political issues. JFK’s assassination was just because he tried to end the Vietnam war. If this plan had been operated and successfully made it would have left the US in deep debt. Because of this the US would have withdrawn without victory.
What are the arguments that support the Supreme Court 's ruling in favor of Phelps? The arguments that supported the supreme court are that they were attending a public event, they were protesting from a far distance that was approved by the state of maryland, the had organized the protest with the local police department and did not interrupt the service. What are some arguments in support of Snyder, the soldier 's father who claims he was harmed by the Phelps ' protest?
Malcolm X’s use of such radical ideas and solutions to the civil rights problems of his day, and MLK’s use of historical examples they captivate their audience and through logos and convince them of their views. Malcolm X completely shatters his listeners’ beliefs, using a roundabout form of rhetoric: he uses harsh language that seems to degrade his audience, while, at the same time, he increases their self-confidence subconsciously through their emotions and through logos builds in their minds the necessity to fight for equality. MLK uses analogies and enthymeme to relate to his audience the importance of equality in order to construct logos in the mind of his audience and convince them of the logic behind back equality. Through the use of appropriate elements of logos, MLK and Malcolm X appeal to logos to make an effective
Obama uses logos when talking about how the nation should continue their lives after this tragedy. He says, ““it would be a betrayal of everything Reverend Pinckney stood for, I believe, if we allow ourselves to slip into a comfortable silence again.” He goes on to state, “That’s what we so often do to avoid uncomfortable truths about the prejudice that still infects our society.” This is a call to action by the president for the nation to not forget about this incident. We cannot become quiet about this disaster as we have done for many others.
King’s uses pronouns consciously in his letter to both distance himself from his critics and include himself with the rest of America. King addresses his main critics, law enforcement across America, by writing “they have used the moral means of nonviolence to maintain the immoral end of flagrant racial injustice” (King 3). King describes how the police are immoral in there protection of segregation. King also uses the pronoun ‘they’ to distance himself from his critics. By dissociating himself from the police, King implies he is moral rather than immoral, convincing King’s audience protest is justified against immoral people and social equality is moral rather than immoral.
