But the movie provides enough information to create an impression about Russia and its citizens. The result is quite negative, but it can be explained by the real background and rules of the cinema. People’s clothes and streets’ condition looked like a real situation at a time of post-perestroika. Soldiers’ behavior could be a result of director’s decision to adhere to the classical canons of action movies mentioned above. Regardless of reasons, the movie showed Russia as a quite gloomy place with ineffective defense system that allowed a traitor to become a general, steal dangerous space weapon and kill the Defense
Another reason why America was aggressive is because for example, when there was a meeting on what action the US should take against Cuba and USSR, three out of the four proposals were ones that could probably cause another war. One of the proposals was to destroy the Soviet missiles in Cuba by an airstrike, which is a very intense act. Furthermore, another reason why I agree with Cuba’s point of view, is because America was unfair with its ‘regulations’ with Cuba. Castro was not allowed to keep Soviet missiles in his land, because Kennedy stated that it was a threat to the security of the US. While on the other hand, the US had all the nuclear power to fire at Cuba at any time without any conditions.
The Cuban Missile Crisis occurred in the month of October, 1962 when American-Soviet relations were tested by the installation of nuclear missiles in Cuba by the Soviet Union. Many historians point to this moment in time as the closest the United States and the Soviets ever came to nuclear war. The tensions began to rise once the Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961, supported by the American government, failed to remove Fidel Castro from power in Cuba. As a result, Castro was open for the Soviet Premier Khrushchev to place troops and nuclear missiles to threaten the United States. Khrushchev considered this justifiable because of the American missiles positioned in Turkey.
The objective behind, what you call a successful mission, was to intercept America’s U-2 spy aircraft, basically messing up their mission. An American U-2 spy plane is shot down while conducting espionage over the Soviet Union. The incident derailed an important summit meeting between President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev that was scheduled for later that month. The U-2 Incident is very significant, not just to the cold war, but to the United States of America because Nikita Khruschev wanted to wreck relations between the two countries, Eisenhower was president at the time, and Khruschev announced that he would no longer deal with the United States of America until Eisenhower was out of
Truman in 1947. President Truman said that the United States would go to whatever lengths possible to contain the spread of communism and stop the United States' former ally, the Soviet Union. The doctrine drafted up due to the crises in Greece and Turkey, both, nations were believed were in danger of falling into the Soviet control. The United States and the USSR were alliance during the Second World War, was only to defeat a same enemy the Germans and the Japanese. When the war ended, Stalin became in control of Eastern Europe.
The Bombing of Hiroshima The bombing of Hiroshima was the right thing to do due to the military lives that were going to be lost if the bomb did not get dropped, America also wanted to impress Russia or intimidate them by dropping it and the president saw this opportunity to make japan surrender as well. This all supports the main point on why it was the right thing to do but many to all Japanese say otherwise Lots of soldiers lost their lives because of the conflict with japan, in document B, it states,”123,000 Japanese and Americans killed each other”. Paul Fussell, a WWII soldier also stated, ”war is immoral, war is cruel”. This is speaking for all the soldiers in the war or most of them, this also means that he doesn’t like war and it would

He believed that setting the film up to climax till after the fight was appropriate for the people of America and Russia to realize in hating is wrong. In the movie after Rocky and Drago beat each other down eventually leaning in Rocky’s favor, he speaks, “During this fight, I’ve seen a lot of changing, in the way you feel about me, and in the way I feel about you. In here, there were two guys killing each other, but I guess other, that’s better than twenty million. I guess what I’m trying to say, is that if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change!”.
