Many children, much like Ishmael, were given the choice between having a chance to live by joining the army, or to be left to die. Many, again much like Ishmael, chose to join the army, as they felt there was no other choice. They joined the army in order to survive, and it isn’t fair to charge them for something they had no control over. If they were founders of the organizations that started the war, then yes, it is fair to charge them with war crimes. If they were someone who was trying to escape but ended up being pulled into the war and forced to kill others so they could survive; those people should be granted with at least the amnesty of not being charged for war crimes.
foreign and domestic policies because it scared Americans and caused tension within the country and worldwide, leading to a lack of trust within the country. The second Red Scare, propaganda, Russian growth in power, nuclear tension, and the Hollywood Ten were all parts of the war that damaged American policies. Civilians lost trust between one another and within the government. Communism intimidated many people, and the Cold War made it appear as though it would soon take over the world. However, Truman and Eisenhower made it evident that the United States was fighting for innocent civilians worldwide, but they could not promise a steady government or country while the tension exists with Russia, but the nation is doing what they must(Document C).
These revolutions and acts of disobedience led to many unnecessary deaths of innocent people. To the Russian people, this was their only way to meet their goals because if they spoke out against the Tsar, the would’ve been
His way through the ladder was stirring fear through the people to get what he wanted. Saddam Hussein used fear as a weapon because he believed that if he lost the element of fear, all power would be lost, including his life as well. He controls the people through fear and violence. He breaches their right of privacy, freely uses the death penalty, disallows anyone to have any political opposition
They way they kept soldiers fighting is cruel, they way they killed people from other empires is not necessary, and the way they got married depending on the situation is unfair. To begin with the Genghis Khan way he set up his soldiers to fight is cruel. Having his soldiers fight is groups, if any more than one man leaves to fight his group members are put to death. (Doc 2) This meaning that the people who leave know that them leaving will cause the death of people who are willing to fight. This is really
He is also in grave threat from the suitors there for his mother who would prefer to see him dead. I actually thought they would kill Telemachus and was quite surprised to see that they did not. In the beginning of Telemachus’ efforts to get rid of the suitors, he asserts himself by calling a congregation of Ithaca 's leaders in order to dispute the suitors ' activities. Although he speaks well at the assembly and impresses some of the
In the beginning of chapter 12 Scout says “he was difficult to live with, inconsistent, moody. His appetite was appalling, and he told me so many times to stop pestering him,” so she did but didn’t exactly know why he was acting this way. (153) Jem was starting to change into a young adult so he left all his things behind when he did when he was smaller. To explain, he doesn’t want to play with Scout so he stays in his room all the time and as Calpurnia says he is going to do what boys do now. He is way older than Scout so of course he is the one who is going to change first and these were the few steps leading him into a
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
“You couldn 't trust anyone in Kabul anymore – for a fee or under threat, people told on each other, neighbor on neighbor, a child on a parent, brother on brother, a servant on a master, a friend on friend. [...]. The rafiqs, the comrades, were everywhere and they 'd split Kabul into two groups: those who eavesdropped and those who didn 't.” (108). This passage shows how the life of a village had become imprisonment and everyone was only trying to save themselves at the cost of others. Ultimately, we see how the Russians began the end of the normal childhood for Hassan and Amir.
Pictures of children being sprayed with firehoses sweeped the nation and made the United States look bad during the Cold War. These actions got notice from the government. If Martin Luther KIng Jr. did not go to jail for the cause the movement could have halted, waiting for justice from the courts as many had advised Martin Luther King Jr. to wait for. This halt in progress could have stalled the movement altogether and no future action would have been
The prophecy said that ‘anyone else who wears the king’s crown is a threat.’ And so he ordered the sailor’s head to be cut off at once.” By saying “anyone else who wears the king’s crown is a threat,” the document reveals that Alexander doesn 't care that the sailor was trying to help. If anyone is a threat to him, Alexander is willing to kill them so they don 't take his spot as King. This shows that Alexander is greedy because he wants to be powerful and have control over everyone. Also, Alexander did not value
