The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is one of the most controversial events that came out of world war two. This event of speculation should not be, simply because as a modern day society we can not fairly evaluate the situation as if we were there. Though killing many innocent lives the bomb ultimately stopped the war that would have ended even more lives. The bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki should have been dropped because the bombing of these cities caused the political and militaristic changes and because of these changes, the United States benefited greatly. At the end of the war, devastating bombs were dropped on the two unsuspecting cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The internment of Japanese Americans during WWII was not justified. After Pearl Harbor, many Americans were scared of the Japanese Americans because they could sabotage the U.S. military. To try and solve the fear President Franklin D Roosevelt told the army in Executive order 9066 to relocate all Japanese Americans living on the West Coast. They were relocated to detention centers in the desert. Many of them were in the detention centers for three years.
A tragedy is an event that is horrific and often can be never be healed. However, with the presence of the correct type of leadership, a tragedy can progressively produce a better world for mankind. For example, the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. were horrific tragedies. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, world leaders, such as President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair, produced speeches that motivated people to prevail over tragedy and instead take the opportunity to make a greater and more prosperous future for the world. President Bush and Prime Minister Blair also had to use their speeches to turn the world from terrorism to a more positive course.
During the second World War (1939-1945) two atomic bombs were dropped on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, it is debatable whether or not these bombs were the appropriate response. I believe that this was the appropriate response because of the horrible crimes the Japanese committed against Americans as well as innocent people during the Rape of Nanking, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the Bataan Death march, also, the two bombs were the final factors in ending the war, as well as the atomic bombs were the first bomb of their kind, this put the Americans in a position of undeniable power. Without these bombs, the war would’ve only progressed and left behind more casualties and destruction. The Japanese committed horrible crimes against innocent
About 6 million people died from the government-engineered famine. Stalin eliminate the Kulaks because they didn’t support him to show that he did controll Ukraine. In 1937 and 1938 the French ambassador attended the public trials that were a part of the “Great Purges”. He wrote “The lessons they (the accused) recited must have been forced from them... It is most likely the GPU [secret police] touched at his weak point...Some would give in to save their families, others in the hope of saving their own lives.” (Document 9) This is saying that at the trials, and outside of the trials people were being controlled by the secret police and desperately trying to keep their families
Since the Japanese were willing to inflict the most harm possible, the war may have lasted several more years. By 1945, those involved in the war were shattered. Therefore, the use of the atomic bombs was justified because it put an end to an already horrific
This statement affirms the fact that even if the atomic bombs were not dropped, and a land invasion had taken place instead, the battle would not have been easily fought. Aside from the hostility of the Japanese, the war was almost over, and dropping the atomic bombs expedited the prolonging of the war. The planned operation, titled ‘Downfall,’ would have taken many years and the estimated casualties of “a half-million American lives” (O’Neal). Based on the estimation, which excludes an added number of casualties, it was necessary to drop the bombs. Lastly, the Manhattan project was rather expensive, and Japan’s persistent honor and barbarism justified using the bomb’s destructive
The Belgians saw that the natives were falling victim to these common diseases and believed the natives inferior to their European breeding. Unfortunately, sleeping sickness and malaria ran rampant in the Congo due to colonization and relocation. People who had never encountered a disease spreading parasite quickly succumbed to the disease. La Force Republique attempted to aid the “savages” by building a school, but it had to be shut down, since each year “100 out of the 1000 school children were dying of sleeping sickness” (World Health Organization par. 2).
It played a part in WWII ending around a month later. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki brought about the beginning of the era of Mutual Assured Destruction, which means that if two countries that have atomic weapons go to war it is very likely that both countries will be obliterated. The potential for MAD became a reality when the Soviet Union acquired atomic weapons in 1949. To clarify, an atomic bomb is the splitting or fission of the nuclei of a molecule, creating an extremely large and destructive reaction. The destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by atomic bomb was unnecessarily devastating because Japan was already on the verge of surrendering, they were effectively helpless and it decimated a civilian population.
In defying the compromise of the Great War nearly twenty-two years prior, Germany remilitarized their country in order to expand their borders, creating political conflict. The Berlin Games caused conflict between countries and races as Hitler defied the compromise of the Treaty of Versailles and started World War Two all under the face of a peaceful, hospitable Germany. The Berlin Olympics were full of controversy and conflict, but before the world could band together it was first threatened to never affiliate in the first place. The Games were awarded to Berlin after the war and before Hitler came to power (Smith). The Olympics were the biggest gift that the Fuhrer received when he started his dictatorship and twisted laws to strike at the Jews.
The first village built by the English was named “James Fort” in honor of their monarch. Within two weeks the Indians, known as the Powhatan’s, found out from the Secotans (North Carolina Native Americans), where most of the recent settlements got “lost”, so they attacked the village. The attack was a failure because the British drew out the Indians with cannons and muskets. After the British drove the Indians away showing more power they also had disadvantages, most of the settlers were trained soldiers and gentries which means they didn’t have enough farmers and farm land to feed all 150 colonists. By the first half of September more than half of the James Fort city (later Jamestown) colonists died, taking the Powhatan’s to pity.
Code Talkers were Native American soldiers who helped in World War II, and they really made a difference for the United States. These soldiers not only could fight in war but, they were used for a bigger purpose, they would speak in their native language. The Native American
