Secrecy played a big part in the Cuban Missile Crisis. President Kennedys got Khrushchev to remove the missiles out of Cuba, but in reality he also removed missiles out of Turkey and Italy confidentiality. This resulted in the embarrassment of Chairman Khrushchev and the Soviet Union since no one knew of the ordeal other then the leaders of both countries; it seemed as if the Soviet 's were retreating from the problem they had started. The withdrawal of the missiles from Turkey and Italy by the United States, were not made public, it was a secret deal between the two leaders that would occur within a short time after the crisis was over. After the quarantine went into effect, Khrushchev sent a personal and emotional letter to the President on Friday, October 26.
During the twentieth century, liberals were anxious to distance themselves from anything that might possibly be perceived as being associated with communism, which resulted in many cold war liberals abandoning their original concerns. Not only did the nation’s cultural and intellectual life suffer as a result of the weakened noncommunist left, but the institutions of American democracy suffered as well. Rather than arguing against issues, such as McCarthyism, that were occurring and would have originally concerned left-wing ideologists, those issues now became irrelevant. Therefore, in my opinion, the weakening of the noncommunist left can be partly blamed on liberals and progressives who reacted poorly to accusations that they were communist
American forces suffered a devastating defeat during the War of 1812 attempting to annex Canada by ignoring various strategic principles. Many Americans believed the assault would be a cakewalk due to Britain being so distracted by the Napoleonic Wars in Europe. President Thomas Jefferson stated “The acquisition of Canada this year, as far as the neighborhood of Quebec, will be a mere matter of marching.” The overconfidence of Jefferson and his generals violated the principles of mass, security, and economy of force. What went wrong? A number of realities were overlooked; terrain, weather, and the general overall physical vastness of Canada.
Recently, the Guatemalan president Jimmy Morales tried to remove a United Nations backed commissioner when they tried to investigate possible corruptions in his campaign. When repercussions were evident, the Guatemalan government actually voted to shield Morales from the consequences of his actions. Though most people may think of national level events (country A in conflict with country B over something) when speaking about sovereignty, it also plays a role at the domestic level too. The issue of the niqab law in Quebec during the past October, for instance, is a recent example. Recently, a law has been passed in Quebec (the Bill 62) which “prohibits students from covering their face in class.
When the British won the war they established an act called the Proclamation of 1763. This act didn 't allow colonists to travel over the Appalachian mountains. The British did this because they didn 't have the ability to protect colonists over the mountains where there were Indian uprising. This angered the colonists and was one of the many things that caused the American Revolution.

Over the years there have been many world events and factors that have made Canada what she is today. There are many ways and things that uniquely identify Canada from other countries. Canada is considered a stable country, with her democratic government, prominent natural resources and trustworthy personality. Canada’s growth and acceptance of immigrants, celebrations of multi-cultural events and her own “homemade” attributes make her special and diverse. Canada is also known to be a just country because of our actions regarding Aboriginal people, Women rights and Japanese Canadians during WWII.
The Canadian government shows respect to issues of other nations, but not First Nations. During the Quebec referendum, Canadian Politician and chief of the Red Sucker Lake community Elijah Harper declined the Meech Lake Accord because Canada was addressing the issues of Quebec instead of First Nations. The accord was about Quebec becoming “distinct society”, this insulted Elijah Harper when First Nations have been trying to become a distinct society and get special treatment. First Nations have been trying to reclaim their land for decades, but the Canadian government pushed aside the issues of First Nations and put the needs of Quebec above theirs. This explains how the federal government does not acknowledge the issues of First Nations.
History is all about inspiring speeches, gruesome wars, and unexpected events that decide the course of the future. The Cold War is not an example of a war, but a highly important event, considering there was no actual fighting. The Cold War started because the Soviet 's wanted to spread communism, but America was getting in their way to stop it. Three major factors also contributed to the conflict of war, the most obvious one being the U.S. wanted to stop communism, another being both the Soviet Union and the United States were afraid of each other, and finally competition, because everyone needs some good competition. These factors are both reasons why the war started, and "weapons" that were used.
