Before opperation Barbarosa on September 1940, Germany invited the USSR to join the Tripartite Pact, an alliance between the Axis powers in Europe including Japan. The pact was not signed by the USSR because of the comments that German Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels made towards Russians, which he described as ‘Bolshevik subhumans’ . This showcases how the ribbentrop-molotov pact was merely a strategy from Germany to invade the USSR in a surprise manner rather than to make a lasting alliance, the fact that Germany saw russians as “subhuman” insinuates that Germany had no means in having peace with the USSR because of their inferiority

Some might say, the real reason that the United States helped out was to stop the spreading of communism from Stalin, since Russia was along the borders of the Eastern Europe countries, and those were the countries US wanted to help. The USSR hated the idea of the Marshall Aid. America had two goals when it came to spending 13 billion dollars: Goal 1: USA had a feeling the more the countries were poor, the more they wanted to become communist. Thus, American’s giving aid would reconstruct their success in Europe. Goal 2: USA was trying to destabilize The Soviet Union in Eastern Europe.
Adams gave speeches to Americans influencing them to separate from Britain. He spoke of the wrongdoings of Britain one being the trial of Captain Preston. They felt they were wrong “for protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit”.

The Treaty of Versailles had an immense significance over Germany in 1919-1939 as it would cause large political, economical, financial, geographical, and military changes for Germany and would result in the rise of the Nazis. The Treaty of Versailles was a treaty to help “settle” international conflicts after World War 1 by deciding who was responsible for the war and how they should be punished. The treaty was written up by Great Britain, France, and The United States of America. Germany was ultimately decided as responsible for the war and was punished heavily as a result. This was in large part due to the complaints of George Clemenceau about the treaty’s original leniency.
These territories that Germany had to give were Lorraine and Alsace, which were French territories that were taken by Germany, and now taken again by France. Also, Germany lost hundreds of square miles of territory in the west and east of Germany, and as a final part of the deal, Germany overcame its overseas colonies. This became a factor of the Second World War because, Hitler, as a great influence for the Germans at that time, declared that they were not going to follow the Treaty of Versailles and that they were also going to fight back. This influenced to the Second World War because many people began to follow Hitler and his ideals, that means, they began to agree with what he said and thought, and this was not the exception. This is the fourth and last reason why the Treaty of Versailles managed to influence in the Second World War, because Germany did not want to follow what the Treaty of Versailles declared, resulting with a refusing and vengefulness attitude.
Iraq was invaded by America in 2004 because of the security threat, North Korea declared itself as a Nuclear power, whereas suspicions arise that Iran is also trying to reach nuclear capability as well.

They attributed the great depression which ended in the inter-war era to the U.S.A’s failures to lead a more active role in the globe
