After world war 2, Korea was divided into communist North with Kim Il-Sung appointed as the Prime Minister and democratic south with Syng-Man Rhee elected as president in South. This resulted in the formation of two governments of different ideology. Both Rhee and Kim desired to unite Korea. Rhee told Dr. Robert that “North Korea should be recaptured by the force of arms to fulfill the ancient nationality of Korea.” While Kim spoke to Shtykov that he"can 't sleep at night because thinking of the unification of the whole country.” However, due to differences in ideology, reuniting Korea was hard which resulted in military force. Spies were killed when found across the 38th parallel, and many gun-involved
Placing the blame on foreigners, by taking the minories residing in Russia, turned the loyal Stalinists against other nationalities, keeping the facts of the arrests relatively contained. The secret police also targeted “... Everyone accused of being an anti-Soviet element” (Budanovic 12). The Purges were not limited to only the enlightened and the minorities, common people who expressed displeasure with the government would also find themselves in a gulag. Stalin not only wanted his reign to go on unopposed, he wanted the people to think in the Soviet mindset, making the people easier to manipulate. This would also make it easier to weed out those he thought were against him, making the interrogations and killings easier to carry out.
American Citizens wanted justice for the horror that happened the night of the attack. Many wanted Japanese to pay for the crimes they committed and FDR wanted that very much as well. He wanted to do a bombing raid on Japanese soil because japan would least expect it. So, the war went on with the goal to punish japan for what they did. The united states were not standing on the sidelines anymore, The goal was to get to Japanese territory and force them to surrender, but in order to get their territory American had to get through the Pacific Ocean which was heavily guarded by Japanese
A hated prince’s preach for peace and good faith will only result in a lack of support from his people and the loss of his state. When a prince avoids hatred, he has done his job and successfully lost the risk of rebellion. His high reputation is very difficult to scheme against, as long as he maintains the utmost respect from his people. A despised prince should fear everything and everybody, however, wise princes have made a valiant effort into running well-ordered states and keeping their people from despair. Through a diabolical strategy, an informed prince will know how to kill his newly conquered people, while avoiding hatred.
The debate over the legitimacy of the atomic bombings of Japan generally revolves around what it was going to take to get Japan to agree to an unconditional surrender and what that might cost in American and Japanese lives. Those who supported the use of the bomb took the utilitarian view that it would end the war quickly and thereby save even greater numbers of American and Japanese lives by avoiding an Allied invasion of the home islands. In the context of The Just War Theory, however, the issue still comes down to the legitimacy of targeting civilians in industrial cities this line had already been crossed. Utilitarian considerations, such as the doctrine of double effect, only apply if the intended target is indeed military. Strategic bombing in World War II essentially was a decision to kill people not because of their military role, but because of their nationality.
And analyzing the situation of the Korean War and the Cold War, the main purpose and cause of the war seem to be to make democracy the dominant system and stop the spread of communism. As mentioned before, President Truman and other democratic countries believed that democracy was the right path in running a country. Therefore, securing democracy in the Korean peninsula would allow for democracy to be one step ahead over communism. The role of democracy was truly seen post Korean
Ultimately, ethnic studies promote American ideals, create identity, and only create contempt when being constrained from these courses. Ethnic studies should be implemented in schools, because they promote American ideals of diversity, inclusion, and freedom. In a place like America, where diversity is supposed to be the building block of our nation, one would think that different ethnic groups would have the right to study their own identity. Students question this in the film and make claims such as, “Education is so against me that they don’t want me.” Evidently, with the threat of abolishing ethnic studies courses, students feel a lack of inclusion, which defies American values. Other violations of American
(Shuter& Kelly, 2007) The Fascist believed that western values dominated the world and their ways were morally wrong. They saw the policy of keeping peace with the west as weak and did not want Japan to be dependent in the west for raw materials. As they believed in nationalism, they wanted Japan self sufficient by trading and be a strong nation and using propaganda they try and convinced the Japanese people that western ways were wrong. This help them to a certain extent as some people truly believe and were convince by them but one other way Fascism became more powerful in Japan is in the education system. In the 1850s, half the men and a seventh of the women in Japan were literate and by 1920s, farmers could read and write.
Cultural and government practices were factors that had triggered the building of the Berlin Wall. The main reason the Berlin Wall was built by East Germans (the Communist Government) was to stop the “brain drain.” The East Germans wanted to stop all of the scientists, engineers, doctors, teachers and many more scholars from crossing over to the West side of Germany (Democratic Government). The East Germans wanted to stop these people from crossing over, because without them their economy would crash. (history.com, 2017) Braving the
And when we did drop this bomb we made a statement not only to Japan but the world that we are not afraid to do what we have to do to protect our homeland and defeat our enemies. War is not a pretty thing and you don 't worry about other people’s feelings especially when they are the enemy, it needed to be done because we needed to end the war and save our American troops lives and give them what they deserved from Pearl Harbour. • They had warnings. It wasn 't a direct warning that the US was going to bomb, but there was a statement warning telling Japan to surrender while the bomb was still being talked about. Japan didn 't surrender.
