Throughout the United States, Anarchists mailed bombs to distinguished Americans, which gave more substance to the Red Scare. Through the people and the government, their actions show how fearful America was towards communism.
However, Japan disavowed these treaties of war. By attacking Pearl Harbor, indulging in biological warfare, and executing chemical murdering and torturing of prisoners, civilians, and slave laborers, Japan broke the laws of war on many levels. Throughout the war, Japan continued to operate above the law. The Nanking Massacre was an incident in December of 1937, during the Second Sino-Japanese War.

Angered colonists decided this was not fair and on the 16th of December 1773, dressed up as the Mohawk Indians, raided the ships and dumped all of the tea into the Boston Harbour. In the picture on the tea party from power point three, we see the colonists dressed as Mohawk Indians throwing crates of what we assume is tea and the British militia running towards the ship trying to stop the colonists. This event angered the British government and as a result, they introduced the “intolerable acts” of 1774. These acts consisted of the Boston port act (the closing of the Boston port); Massachusetts government act (colonists had less power and royal officials were put in charge); administration of justice act (allowed royal officers to be tried in other colonies when they committed crimes in Boston); and the quartering act (colonists had to take in British militia and feed them) was expanded to all colonies not just

The power hungry Cixi ordered the riddance of the current emperor allowing her to claim the throne. Soon after, Cixi would use the secret societies of China, such as the Society of Harmonious Fists, to attack Western missionaries and civilians in order to rid China of foreigners. In addition, Cixi demanded that the Qing army completely ignore the Boxers, essentially giving them the privilege to do as they please. Without authority over a group of militants and the Chaos that ensued, a sign of the loss of the mandate of Heaven, the Western powers formed a coalition to put down the Boxer rebellion. The coalition’s fleet arrived and Beijing and quickly put down the rebellion comprised of, as the name implies, boxers that did not use any guns.
