The Vietnam war brought a lot of deaths of American soldiers.
Also , “First of all, World War II and the Vietnam conflict, both of which were very costly in terms of human life for numerous reasons, were also both wars of conscription, as was the Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in American history in terms of American lives lost” (Source 2).

Miles Stanton, the man who took too much, is dead. Will anyone mourn the loss of a hero they never wanted? He was a martyr through and through, but no one man could hold that much. In the end he wasn 't much more than a thief, he wasn 't quite the force of good he wanted to be. If he had managed to succeed and stuff all the negative emotions and experience of the human race into one being, trust me when I say that the result wouldn 't be anything spectacular.
The information you showcase regarding the United States’ movement westward is very intuitive. Additionally, the information you showcase about the massacre of the Native American people during westward expansion is something that people often avoid discussing. Furthermore, the information regarding the governments’ incentive packages for moving west highlights how desperate the United States is to settle the new land. Now, consider that the military massacred hundreds of Native Americans, do you believe that those men should have stood trial for war crimes? Also, do you believe the government’s incentive packages are a contributing factor to settler’s clashes with Native Americans?
Be that as it may, but considering the fact that the United States’ anti-communist repression was another reason for the advancement of violence within guerilla groups, it’s fair to say that we were also a contributing factor that caused the whole conflict in the first place and therefore by moral means, it’s important that we sufficiently contribute to troubleshooting the problem in order to reinstitute our reputation globally and historically. The problem developed as a result of the fortyfive year long conflict between guerrilla groups, paramilitary organizations and government forces. The cause of fortyfive year long Colombian conflict is rooted within the civil war known as La Violencia, which was caused by the assassination of populist political leader Jorge Eliécer Gaitán in 1948. This motivated both the political leaders and rural town police to enrage the conservative supporting peasants to take over the agricultural lands of liberal supporting peasants, which later developed into a widespread civil war throughout Colombia. Since the conflict is still going on and civilians are the main component between the
Therefore, he gathered numerous documents about the case into his documents. The atrocities committed against Vietnamese civilians was a political threat to Nixon’s strategy of Vietnamization. Nixon’s goal was to turn the war over to the South Vietnamese so that he is able to withdraw most of the U.S. troops. The massacre in My Lai would further justify the resistance of the enemy and it was the complete opposite of what Nixon wanted to accomplish.
He proofed them wrong by setting a harsh example for them, he attacked the accent city of Thebes and then sold more than twenty thousand Thebans to slavery and killed six thousand of them. (Pg. 98). Alexander planed on conquering the world, but there were some countries like India and Bactria that was not willing to let him take over their country.

While many worldviews exist, The fall of the Aztec empire was unavoidable.The Aztec’s were a group of people who were very religious and lived in Mexico for hundreds of years but one day a group of Spanish people arrived and executed all of the Aztec people. Many of them died from diseases the spanish brought with them like small pox. The others were killed by the spanish and some were taken to spain as slaves. This was led by an explorer named Hernan Cortes.

As a way of finding meaning behind all the bloodshed and carnage that the Vietnamese went through, we see through the belief in Karma a way to understand and cope with the war. Sometimes people can cope better with a situation that is outside of their control by trying to understand the reason behind it. We are told that karma is the reason that the Vietnamese are suffering with the war as a sort of divine retribution against them for their people destroying the ancient city of Indrapura and the native inhabitants of the Indochina peninsula, known as the Cham (Cao, 55) (Windows on Asia). Based on the Confucian idea of the sanctity of the land we see that what was motivating many of the Vietnamese was a connection to the land (Cao, 83). The war was fought in the rice fields because it was a war fought for the soul of the country, and subsequently the soul of the individuals tied to that land/country (Cao, 172).
The Truman Doctrine stated that the United States would aid countries which were threatened by communism. According to the Domino Theory if one country fell into communism, a domino effect would occur, causing many other countries to fall into communism. The line that says "we must fight to keep our freedom," is referring to the fact that many believed we had to fight the war in Vietnam to prevent communism to spreading to the US, and the song disputes this logic with the line "but Lord knows there 's got to be a better way". This song answers the question "How does war affect the individual?" with the lines "war, has shattered, Many a young man 's dreams, Made him disabled, bitter and mean".
