Accordingly, the “ Japanese Emperor Hirohito was one of the Japanese officials who expressed reservations about going to war” (Timms). While the Imperial Navy’s Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, who was also known as the “chief architect of the attack on Pearl Harbor, stated that he believed it was impossible for Japan to win such a war but Japan had to gain the upper hand at the very beginning so that the United States just might be enticed to the negotiating table” (Timms). Hotta revealed her own interpretation by reviewing relevant published primary sources and the reasons why Japan decided to attack the Pearl Harbor. In addition, everyone talked about going to war such as the “Japan’s top brass referring to the prime minister, the foreign minister, the army and navy ministers, and the chiefs of the army and navy general staff”
They comprehend the amount of damage Japan inflicted upon multiple territories and they comprehend that their enemy has enough power to kill thousands. Roosevelt goes on to reveal that “This morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island,” (Roosevelt) proving that Japan shows no signs of stopping. Therefore, the audience speculates if any other part of the USA is in danger. !The president’s use of anaphora then an update of that morning’s attack go hand in hand to build Roosevelt’s factual, yet urgent tone.! By using anaphora and an update, Roosevelt is able to scare his audience and introduce a factual and urgent
The speaker is Franklin Delano Roosevelt is trying to convince congress to go to war with japan for bombing pearl harbor(December 8, 1941); The speech is a persuasive speech but also a rally at the same time because he knows that they will probably go to war, he used words such as “disastrous” and “infamy” to describe the attack on the U.S, he uses small phrases such as “last night” and “so help us god” witch gave people a sense of nationality they haven 't felt before, and made them want to get revenge and fight the japanese (japs). He uses repetition and anadiplosis to repeat his message and drive what he is saying into his spectators/listeners heads, as well as pre-empting, which makes things sound way more serious and crucial and get back at them for what they 've done. Roosevelt 's purpose was to make the people of the U.S.A. to want to fight the Japanese empire in order to get them back for what they 've done to us. President Roosevelt is addressing Congress and people of the
The theme of fear in both the Crucible and the Japanese Internment Camps of WWII caused people to be easily persuaded with the use of pathos and logos. In the Crucible, pathos is utilized as a powerful form of persuasion which pulls at the emotions of an individual to change their opinion or belief especially in the testimony of John Proctor. When John Proctor goes before the court for his confession, he declares, “how may I live without my name? I
Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat was a speech given by Winston Churchill. This was his speech promising the British of his nonstop work to get the victory against Germany. He proposed a new government to Parliament respectfully in a speech. He helped give the military confidence so, they could go into war with their head head high. In the end, the British won the war.
Americans to acute offense to this and again asked for war. President Mckinley said he couldn’t see going to war over “something so silly.” Still the American people wanted action against Spain. The American government responded to these American war cries by sending the battle ship U.S.S Maine for a “friendly visit.” The events that would follow would finally get these cries for war answered (Lawson
For example, at the end of World War II, U.S. President Harry Truman was faced with the difficult decision of either invading Japan, causing a huge loss of life, or dropping the atomic bomb on Japan, causing a smaller immediate loss of life and bringing the war to a speedy conclusion. Truman was forced to take the decision which was the least worst. Moral rigidity however, would not have allowed Truman to make this difficult decision as both choices seem to be unethical. In summary, this paper has shown firstly that people have the capacity to be both good and bad through the examples of Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, King Leopold II of Belgium and Pol Pot. Secondly, this paper has demonstrated the necessity of adopting a flexible moral code as rigid moral codes cannot be followed indefinitely, as in the case of the Aztecs, and also we all at some point have to choose between two or more unethical acts, as in the case of Harry Truman, which a rigid moral code would not allow us to
Now that is my example of how the ends justifies the means. The President of the USA, and perhaps high officers had to weigh the ends so as to justify the means of how to bring an end to war with Japan. Japan started it by bombing Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941. I am certain no sane Americans wished to kill thousands of Japanese people, as well as innocent kids. However, the war may have continued on for years.
Because of this characteristic, his Russian Empire had to receive an infamous defeat in the Russian – Japanese war. In February 1904, the Japanese attacked Port Arthur of Russia to show its power to the western world. However, Nicholas was very confident when he received the news. His pugnacity brought him the subjectivity in war. He believed that “the upstart Japanese would soon be taught a salutary lesson.” He also wrote to his mother: “So the war has begun, our brave men will surely be victorious over the foe.” In contrast, the Russian navies were “all sunk in a single day in the battle of Tsushima.” Nicholas II still did not awaken; he even showed his pugnacity to his own people on the Bloody Sunday.
Therefore, Ho had to put down the French and Japanese harshly, citing the war crimes that they have committed against the Vietnamese, to justify Vietnam’s “right to be a free and independent country” . Ho, through this speech, had to unite his people as one, and justify the country’s independence domestically and internationally because Vietnam was in a limbo state when Japan left and the French had not yet returned. Domestically, when delivering the speech, Ho condemned the actions of the French and Japanese harshly in an attempt to unite the people. For instance, he exaggerated the war crimes that the French enacted on them, such as forcing them to use opium, separating Vietnam into different regimes, and wrecking their unity . However, we must also consider the long-term gains that the French had given Vietnam.
They supplied Britain, Soviet Union and China with war materials and even deployed troops to Iceland, relieving Britain soldiers. However, the sanctions against Japan only outraged them leading to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Americans were entering the war by joining the RAF Squadron in Britain. On December 7, 1941 a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese changed
In order for them to support the war, the government used propaganda to evoke feelings of nationalism. While the United States joined the war as an opportunity to get revenge on Japan, propaganda was often censored to guarantee that Americans only saw the damage Japanese soldiers had done to Americans. To insure that Americans would not be put off and maintain the desire for war, images of dead Americans were prevented from being published to the public. (“Supporting Evidence”). Government officials knew that citizens were unable to withstand the gruesome photos taken of the realities of the war.
There is always a reason behind every attack that occurs in the past. The incident that took place in Pearl Harbor in 1941 was not a mistake, but in fact a well thought out plan by the Japanese. It all began in the nineteen thirties when the relationship between the United States and Japan grew progressively worse. Around 1854 United States Commodore Matthew Perry opened trade with Japan and other nations. It was no secret that Japan wanted to become a modern industrial nation and wanted economic control of the Asia-Pacific region.
On December 7th of 1941, an attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese changed the course of history of the United States and the world. This attack on an American naval facility claimed a staggering 2,403 lives and wounded 1,178 others forcing the United States’ formal entrance into World War II. I was very fortunate to visit and participate in a South Washington County ISD 833 group band performance at this historic site, in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. While visiting this monument, I learned about the significance of this International aggression on the American soil. This attack symbolized a threshold point for Americans from just offering support to the Europeans to becoming actively involved in the war.
The U.S. viewed bombings as a necessity because Truman gave the Japanese a chance to surrender when he issued the Potsdam Declaration. In his message, Truman warned the Japanese that if they would not unconditionally surrender that they would be struck with “prompt and utter destruction.” Similarly, by bombing the Japanese it would spare up to 1 million American lives along with 250,000 British casualties because U.S and allied soldiers didn’t have to attempt to invade the heavily guarded Japanese territories. Another reason the United States needed to bomb Japan was dominance. The secretary of state thought it would put the U.S. in a dominant position in the postwar and have power over the Germans. The last reason that America needed to bomb
