Therefore, the Cold War spread fear which led to the United States being negatively impacted in domestic and foreign
The many powerful people of the colonies wrote to talk against the formation of Congress. Letters would go into great depths about how Congress would make bad decisions, inefficiency and ultimately let down the American people. Especially, colonies’ individual governments such as Rhode Island spoke about how they do not approve of Congress and its main goals. In fact, the amount of boycott toward the idea of Congress did not allow the people to hear from Congress, but instead their state governments would overpower them with reasons not to allow it.

The Syrian Civil War has been prolonged further than ever anticipated. With casualties reaching the hundreds of thousands, this war has left permanent impacts on families across all of Syria. The civil war in Syria was sparked from the Arab Spring which consisted of countries in North Africa and Middle East.

Saddam Hussein did not know how to civilly operate with others around once he rose to great power; so he was forced to use his village mentality where violence is the rule of law, thus leading to his intense and irrational cruelty. Some would like to argue that it was actually his Hussein’s realization that such power existed that corrupted him. They think that he wishes to return Iraq to a historical age of glory.
