Eventually, the opponents, Axis Powers, were able to listen to the conversation, Unfortunately, the Germans had tapped into the power lines and were able to decode the Americans long range messages. Therefore, resulting in the code deemed useless. After World War 1 it was soon discovered that “Germany and Japan sent students ... after World War 1 to study Native American languages [ Comanche,Cherokee, Choctaw] ”(Toledo) .This roadblock had to be solved rapidly as World War Two came along. This time the Japanese were interpreting the codes and set the United States a huge disadvantage. The Allies refused to be handicapped and came up with
Hitler disobeyed the Treaty of Versailles, and was allowed to succeed at the Munich Conference. Although the main causes revolved around Hitler, and he caused many of the problems, the Allied nations could have stopped him in different situations. One reason the Allies started World War II, is that the countries that made up the Allied nations were focused on their own countries after World War I, and were not
Being the president of the United States comes with the responsibility of making tough decisions that aren’t always perceived as the best, especially when it involves the war. In 1945, President Harry Truman had to make a difficult decision that ultimately gave americans a leg up in the war. President Harry Truman’s decision to use the atomic bomb on Japan in WWII is surrounded by much controversy but holds many positive advantages that helped end the war. Presidents Harry Truman’s decision to use the atomic bomb posed nearly no significant dilemmas overall. Rightfully, there is no doubt that dropping the atomic bomb on Japan was not only destructive but devastating as well but that was the best choice that Truman had.
Ronald Reagan was able to reduce tension between America and the Soviet Union but he is not the best leader because of the Iran Contra Affair in which it showed that he is easily influenced by other people.One of the foreign policies was military build up.Because the Soviet Union decided not to abide by the SALT II treaty which was to maintain nuclear equalness between two main superpowers, it was no surprise when Reagan also bagn defense building. The main objectives of the buildup were to strengthen military, encourage and gain trust from the European allies that US will not abandon them. The defense budget in 1981 was $171 million to $300 billion in 1985. The increase in budget has many positive results such as a military upgrade and modern
Thesis statement: Though many speculate that the act of dropping the atomic bomb on Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki) while not doing so on Europe (Germany and Italy) was racially motivated, racism played little to no role in these bombings. The United States of America and her allies were willing to end World War II at any cost, had the atomic bombs been available they would have been deployed in Europe. In the 1940’s there is no doubt that the United States of America was engulfed by mass anti-Japanese hysteria which inevitably bled over into America’s foreign policy. During this period Japanese people living in both Japan and the United States of America were seen as less that human. Japanese-Americans living on the west coast were savagely and unjustifiably uprooted from their daily lives.
Neither of these authors has any experience of oppressive regimes but both feel morally outraged by the Stasi and Stalin’s rule. Orwell is inspired by Stalin using the USSR. Post war Germany had the Stasi to make sure it remains a communist country and not get influenced by capitalism. The third person limited narrative favouring the point of view of Winston the protagonist. On the other hand, Funder who has a first-person narrative, but Funder’s text is polyvocal because she uses a lot of direct speech from her interviewees and she has narrative commentary which influences the perspective
I am firmly opposed to the manipulation of one’s subjects for the better of the ruler. Machiavelli’s concept for a prince’s soldiers is a malicious brainwash. A feared ruler will only induce despise from his people. I regard Machiavelli’s justification for a prince containing aspects of evil to be a unethical form of governing a society. His depiction of a feared ruler disregards the prosperity of his people and does not account for their pursuit of happiness.
But if you wish it so, we shall obey you. Rather shall we be evil with you than good with all our brothers. May the Council have mercy upon both of our hearts” (Anthem, pg.10). This explains International 4-8818 fear of moral judgement and not wanting to take responsibility for his actions, which explains his failure of pronouncing judgement, according to Rand’s
Finally, Mr. Thoreau willingly accepted the consequences of his actions in order to prove his point. Civil disobedience is “the refusal to obey or comply with certain laws or governmental demands for the purpose of influencing legislation or government policy, characterized by the employment of such nonviolent techniques as a peaceful form of political protest [such] as boycotting, picketing [or not paying] taxes and fines”(Dictionary). Henry David Thoreau broke the law by not paying his taxes but the motive behind his “crime” is comprehensible. Thoreau being a good humanitarian opposed the injustices being committed against the less fortunate and made sure his money was not being used to glorify and expand the horrible atrocities of war and slavery.
As the leader of us, it was a great move to show authority by giving a punishment. This not only showed who was in charge but also told to never cross you, for it is wrong. Nevertheless, for a crime to have good intentions, I believe if you had just given him a small, but powerful judgment, Prometheus would’ve understood that he shouldn’t continue to abruptly make decisions. In conclusion, I hope you have realized the decisions we all made weren’t the wisest and we could’ve done a lot more for mankind. Even though, I know I, as a Goddess, should not be interfering with this kind of situation I believe it would better our living situation if you would take any one of these ideas into
New to the presidential office, Truman was presented with the decision of whether to drop the atomic bomb, a choice that today is viewed as controversial, but which at the time was well-received by an American population tired of war. The unexpected death of beloved president FDR placed a difficult burden on Truman to fulfill the expectations of the public when he was inadequately prepared or informed. Thus, he refrained from interrupting the existing plans put into place by the predecessor he admired so greatly, and allowed the momentum of the atomic bomb to continue. Additionally, the amount of resources devoted by the American and British governments to the development of the atomic bomb made Truman reluctant to halt the operation at its
Overall, the Battle of Berlin was a very costly battle for all parties involved, but ultimately a necessary one. The Germans were weak compared to how they were positioned earlier in the war. It was the ideal time for the Soviets, and the Americans to strike them down. The atrocities that Germany, under the lead of Hitler, were committing had to be put to an end then and there. It was also in the best interest of the leader of the USSR, Joseph Stalin, that the war was ended before sooner than later.
I strongly believe our armistice is just a mirage. It will be impossible for our country to remain neutral. The United States needs to join the alliance against Germany because of uncontrollable submarine warfare, the Zimmerman Telegram, and to stop the imperialism of communistic countries. The nationalism and propaganda circulating the country will not allow the United States to stay away from the war. The German u-boats have shown that the German government has neglected the consequences of attacking countries not involved in the war.
Someone who actually cares for humans at all would never call them “specimens”. This type of behavior, a general lack of care for the human life, is saddening. To compare Zaroff to someone like Hitler or Stalin would not be uncalled for. Hitler and Stalin referred to people with the same amount of care that Zaroff does, next to none. Instead of wanting to help people, both Zaroff and dictators like Hitler would rather see the strong survive and the weak die off.
Hitler, the political leader of Germany during WW2, strived to create a “perfect race”. The building of this race was at the expense of Jews and other minorities he thought of as inferior. Since the minorities were less than human in Hitler’s eyes, he imagined that the art did not belong to them. Rather than Hitler stealing their art, in his eyes the Jews stole his art. This perspective differs greatly from Eisenhower’s, the Commander-in-Chief of the US army during WW2.
