From the three documents provided, Documents A, B, and C. I think that the Early Islamic Empire expanded war, by truced, and rare peace. It changed dramatically. The spread of Islam from 632-661. The battle in al-Yarmuk was the fiercest and bloodiest of its kind. According to Document A Al-Biladuri, “The Battle of the Yarmuk” “The Greeks and their followers in this battle tied themselves to each other by chains, so that no one would run away.” When anybody goes to war, the only thing that you think of is, “Get me out of here!” But, putting chains together so that they would not run away is really hard.
I believe that WWII was indeed the last total war of the modern era. "Total war is a military conflict in which contenders are willing to make any sacrifice in lives and other resources to obtain a complete victory." This was made obvious by numerous factors including Operation Meetinghouse or as many know it the firebombing of Tokyo. The United States unleashed a fury of which has never been seen before. Over 1,000,000 were made homeless and 100,000 civilians were killed in this raid.
On October 28, 1993 a strike team of Delta Force operators launched an attack to capture a high ranking warlord living in Mogadishu Somalia. The goal of the operation was achieved but the local militia forced the soldiers into an overnight standoff that lasted well into the next day. In the end the United States lost 18 operators 73 were wounded and one was captured. The causes of the incident known as Black Hawk Down provide insight into changes made to U.S. tactics and foreign policy. One of the major factors that contributed to the fatality of the operation was the reliance on cutting edge technology.
He brought to light that there have been significant increases of violence toward Muslims since nine eleven. By confronting this issue once and for all he would have potentially saved the lives of over 12 million Americans (Somnez). He showed the members of the House and Homeland Security Committee that the hateful and discriminatory rhetoric used by religious, military and political leaders is feeding fear and hysteria (Muslims battle to be
With such a large-scale attack, a large media presence swarmed the area. For the local Kenyan press, it was "one of the largest, if not the largest" (Driscoll 75) news event in decades. With such a large presence of the press the words and actions of American personnel after the bombing spread like wildfire. This was the first impression the Kenyan public had to form a lasting opinion on the United States response to the disaster relief. First impressions, positive or negative, can influence long term relations.
A two front war is a war in which fighting takes place in separate fronts. This was a major key to defeating the germans “More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolf Hitler’s crack troops.” (www.army.mil/d-day/) In addition, the Allies and the Axis both knew how important it was to win this war. On D-Day, the Allies arrived and attacked first. The Axis Attacked last. The allie’s powers were the USA, Britain, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Greece, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, and South Africa.
Causes and Effects of 9/11 September 11, 2001 was a horrific day for all American citizens. Four American commercial flights were hijacked by Islamic extremist that would soon crash into some of the most important structures in America. From that day on we will remember the ones we lost and the ones who gave their lives to save others. This was the first major attack since Pearl Harbor in 1941 on American soil. Nineteen militants who were suicide bombers crashed into the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field which had a central and global effect on the world caused by global terrorism increase and the spread of the group Islamic Extremist.
The Aztec empire was highly developed and had many large cities, larger and beautiful than any Spanish person had seen. This made the Spanish want the Aztec empire, so Hernan Cortez a Spanish conquistador led his allies to the capital city of Tenochtitlan where he hoped to humble the Aztecs. This resulted in the death of the Aztec’s leader, after this event the Spanish conquistadors fought several bloody battles before they finally defeated the Aztecs. They were also greatly assisted in this by smallpox, a disease that killed 3.5 million Aztecs in just a year. From Mexico, the Spanish expanded their control to the south and destroyed the Maya.
ISIS has been able to successfully take over the country of Libya in recent years due to the fact that Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011 because of the Arab Spring. The fall of Muammar Gaddafi from government led the way to a country wide civil unrest and a massive rise in tribal warfare. ISIS has been using Libya as a center of operations for their illegal activities. This is because of Libya’s prime geo-political location on the map with easy access to Europe and the Mediterranean Sea. As a result, Isis is generating millions from their illegal drug trade based in Libya.
It all began when Sudan’s very own government ordered and armed an Arab militia to attack certain ethnic groups. Without their intent it led to the mass murder of more than 480,000 people. Time and time again people question, why should we care? Imagine being out in public spending a wonderful day with your
