He knew he could not repair what had been done, but he knew we could fight back. The speech focuses on the fact that these terrorist attacks were out of pure evil. Bush wanted to make sure that America, along with the rest of the world, still had a fight and a drive in them. He wanted us to feel safe and protected. As he continues on, the American people hear what he has done and what will be done to
He mentioned at the beginning of his speech that “whether we bring enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done.” He also emphasized at the ending part of his speech “we’ll meet violence with patience justice”. In this latter sentence, Bush was clearly using “patience justice” in place of “slow revenge”. The notion of justice could be subject to different interpretations by the audience; however, judging from the context of his entire speech, Bush deliberately distorted the meaning of “justice” to fulfill his propaganda. While he seemed to be talking about justice while he meant war and
Hitler’s violent passion towards the executors of the assassination and the idea of revenge if very obvious in this speech. His passion towards his cause of leading Germany into being the dominant race in Europe is also very visible. Finally “Telos” is the purpose or conclusion of the speech, in this case it was to assure the Germans that he is alive and the plot failed. Thus we use these concepts to show how rhetoric functions, and how Adolf Hitler was eloquent from the rhetoric
We’ve witnessed so-called leaders not merely against the forces of hate, but for equality and justice. Bigotry may run through the American grain, but so too does resistance. We know the world we are fighting for” (277). Ahmed introduces the importance of peace in a crowd filled with hatred. People have the power to destroy hate before it transforms them into ugly and regretful individuals.
Several people from different walks of life have extended their own opinions on just and unjust wars. Defencists argue the need to engage in war as an act of defense when there is a threat, such as facing a country what initiated a violent war, overthrowing a cruel and oppressive government, and protecting its people against an invader; the Realists’ belief is similar to those of the Defencists, but that war is said to be just when your moral standards call for it (Orend, 2009). For instance, fighting against the US government after it overthrew your previous dictator, but then proceeded to use Phosphorus shells on civilian targets. As a Realist soldier ordered by the US government to participate in this war, you would call for the right to
Primary Drama Posting: Act V, Scene ii Othello makes a careful distinction between “a murder” and “a sacrifice” (65). What is the difference, as he sees it? Othello starts the scene thinking Desdemona’s death will be an honorable “sacrifice”(V.ii.65), but her denial of guilt “dost stone [his] heart, ”(V.ii.63), and vilifies his murderous intent. The “sacrifice” (V.ii.65) is just and moral because Othello believes his indignant jealousy is warranted. Vengeance must be enacted to restore right to the world.
He gives the appeal that we must not be afraid and in the end we will have great triumph. Paine also uses imagery relate the devil with the current king of Britain. “The king of Britain can look up to heaven for help against us: a common murderer, a highwayman, or a housebreaker, has as good a pretense as he…” He is painting a picture in the soldiers’ minds of how cruel the king has been to the colonies and should give them even more spirit to go and
The role of religion presents a responsive and understanding attitude towards the ridiculous moments. Religion answers questions such as, why did Laius and Jocasta leave Oedipus at the crossroads, or, why did Oedipus leave Corinth. The use of diction is almost comical in its presentation of dramatic irony. The climactic moment when Oedipus takes his own vision is just as tragic as it is necessary, as every tragic hero must fall. Moreover, he vows to bring Laius’ killer to justice, and that is exactly what he does.
The speaker is Franklin Delano Roosevelt is trying to convince congress to go to war with japan for bombing pearl harbor(December 8, 1941); The speech is a persuasive speech but also a rally at the same time because he knows that they will probably go to war, he used words such as “disastrous” and “infamy” to describe the attack on the U.S, he uses small phrases such as “last night” and “so help us god” witch gave people a sense of nationality they haven 't felt before, and made them want to get revenge and fight the japanese (japs). He uses repetition and anadiplosis to repeat his message and drive what he is saying into his spectators/listeners heads, as well as pre-empting, which makes things sound way more serious and crucial and get back at them for what they 've done. Roosevelt 's purpose was to make the people of the U.S.A. to want to fight the Japanese empire in order to get them back for what they 've done to us. President Roosevelt is addressing Congress and people of the
Since Creon is more pragmatic and is not willing to take action, Oedipus takes action and threatens Tiresias to speak the truth. Once revealing the truth to Oedipus, he is quick to accuse Tiresias of being a false prophet and the murderer himself. “Know, I suspect you joined to hatch the deed;/Yea, did it--all but slaying with your own hands;/And if you were not blind, I should aver/The act was your work only,” (p. 15). Oedipus is quick to find someone who is culpable and in this situation it happens to be Tiresias. On doing so, Oedipus does not reflect on how his actions are causing him to dishonor the gods.
Why has this nation always declared war? America when will you declare war on racism? When will a leader be able to enforce that we are not the lesser people because of our skin color, without him/her being assassinated for taking a stand against what is morally and humanely right? Can we as a country say forget 9/11 get over it already, forget the Boston Bombings can we stop talking about it? The minute we reflect on what our ancestors went through just to be comfortable in this land that we was forced to live in and build, we are told to get over
I find Charles Lewis to have a valid point by saying that this country is in fact very militant. The reason why I think he says we don 't want to associate ourselves with wanting to be militant is because of all of the horrible things that can happen during war. When watching why do we fight every president has always gone into another country and tried to do it so that it was as if they did something to up hold America 's freedom. America likes to police the world and most Americans agree with it, this makes them feel safe. I think the real truth though in this statement is that fighting as a nation is in our best interest and we all should support anything our country
