Impressed with Italy's early military successes, German dictator Adolf Hitler sought to establish a relationship with Benito Mussolini; he was flattered by Hitler's overtures and interpreted the recent diplomatic and military victories as proof of his genius. By 1939, the two countries had signed a military alliance known as the "Pact of Steel." Influenced by Hitler, Mussolini instituted discrimination policies against the Jews in Italy. In 1940, Italy invaded Greece with some initial success. With Italy's resources stretched to capacity, many Italians believed the alliance with Germany would provide time to regroup.
In Brutus’ oration he answers the question of why he decided to kill Caesar. Brutus answers the question by saying, “this is my answer: not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more” (3.2.22-24). This answer from Brutus appeals to the Romans’ sense of nationalism. Brutus inflames the mob’s feeling of passion and pride for their country. This use of pathos is very powerful and well crafted; however, Mark Antony outsmarts him.
The key aspect discussed in this essay is the cause and affect the Italian Campaign had on World War II. The Italian Campaign was one of the bloodiest campaigns of the second world war, and one of the most necessary. The campaign gave much needed flexibility to the Allied powers and many additional benefits and advantages in facing the Axis powers. Furthermore, the campaign lasted from July 10th, 1943 until May 2nd 1945.

Odysseus is more than likely the most renowned conqueror of all places during the time that he was alive. He was the mastermind behind the siege of troy and came up with the idea for building the Trojan horse all by himself. Many people probably believe that odysseus was more of a villain than a hero because he lead his men into dangerous situations in which some of them never returned home to Ithaca. In the passage on lines 130-210, Odysseus leads the men to an island with many sheep on it. Odysseus then decides that it would be a good idea for the crew and himself to stay on the island to see who the ruler of the island is or who the inhabitants of the island were.

Paine threw in this biblical reference to the world with no kings yet God granted the Jews only one even though he was angry. Paine questioned that if God was the true King, why would there be a need for Parliament? He then, in turn, concludes that monarchy is a sin and is a disgrace.

In his article, ¨So You think You Know the Second Amendment,” Jeffrey Toobin, points out the duplicity of the NRA in their quest to re-interpret the Second Amendment. Toobin emphasizes that “for more than a hundred years” the “Supreme Court, and the lower courts as well” had found that the Second Amendment “conferred on state militias a right to bear arms- but did not give individuals a right to own or carry a weapon.” Toobin poisons the well when he says, “Enter the modern National Rifle Association.” Introducing a paragraph of critical comments about the group identifies this as an unwelcome appearance of the NRA.
3) David vs. Goliath The kingdom of Israel, ruled by Saul at that time, was at war with the Philistines. These counted on a leader called Goliath, of enormous stature.
