The Army and government tried so hard to keep it covered but it eventually got out. The efforts that were reached to expose the massacre from within the service triggered an Army investigation, the investigation led to the first stories of the massacre and what happened in My Lai. The authorities originally played down the bloodshed. On November 20, 1969, the first pictures of the My Lai massacre were released by the Plain Dealers Grim Newspaper. The front page photo was of dead bodies, children and women, that were killed by American GI’s (Government Issue).
After being shot, doctors rushed to the train station and began trying to locate the bullets to remove them. Since doctors did not believe germs existed, they did not disinfect the area around the president or their hands, which they used to feel around inside of his body. This caused a spread of germs which later developed into an infection which he finally succumbed to after about a month in the hospital. Critic of Guiteau’s guilt and author of a book about Garfield’s assassination, Candice Millard, blames the doctors by claiming, “If they had just left him alone he almost certainly would have survived” (CBS 1). This is backed up by the fact that the bullets were found to have not hit any vital organs.
Ngo Dinh Diem and Ngo Dinh Nhu Dinh Dinh Diem and His Brother were assassinated in Cho Lon, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (Britannica). The U.S wanted to kill Ngo Dinh Diem because they wanted to maintain the southern Vietnamese government (History.com Staff). The Southern Vietnamese government was unstable during the Vietnam War because Northern Vietnam was constantly trying to turn them Communist. The U.S also wanted to kill him because He was killing Buddhist. Ngo Dinh Diem’s family believed that people were becoming Buddhist because of the Communist (Kross), so he would kill everyone that had signs of being Communist.
generals covered up the story and lied about the massacre of My Lai, because they knew that as soon as the media would find out about the massacre , there would be huge protests and uprisings against the Vietnam War Officials claimed at first, that Charlie Company achieved its aim and “had killed 128 Vietcong guerillas and that 22 civilians had died in this battle” (The Vietnam, p. 47) The My Lai massacre happened after the Tet-Offensive, so the military could not risk the publishing of the massacre to the U.S. citizens, because of all the protests that were happening anyways The story about the massacre must have spread, because more and more people found out about it and got involved in it until, one soldier, named Ron Ridenhour, who heard the story, wrote a letter “to the president Richard Nixon, the Pentagon, State Department and other high ranking government officials” ( ) The government as well as the military still tried to hide the scandal from the public and charged many officers discretely for
Besides being president Nixon was known for many illegal activities and the Watergate scandal. This scandal made Nixon not a favored person. NIxon denied all illegal activities, and refused to hand over any video recording and recorded calls. In 1970 many things changed for him and other presidential advisers. “In April 1973, top presidential advisors and government members were forced to resign and later went to prison.” And during Nixon’s second term, in 1973 he stepped down as president.
To begin with, Chavez uses logos in his speech through a rhetorical question, “Who gets killed in the case of violent revolution? The poor, the workers.” The people who are arguing for violent revolutions are mostly poor workers whom Chavez refers to. Chavez uses logic to show these people that if they use violent revolts, they are most likely the ones going to be killed which for the most part will deter the people who are aiming for this. Another appeal Chavez uses is ethos to show everyone as people we are expected to do the right thing. In the speech he says, “We are convinced that when people are faced with a direct appeal from the poor struggling nonviolently against great odds, they will react positively.” This appeals to peoples’ morals by saying people are expected to react in a positive way when dealing with struggling
In addition his misuse of presidential powers by destroying the Bank of the United States. In my opinion Andrew Jackson should be removed from the twenty dollar bill, because of the corruption and misuse of powers throughout his presidency. First was Indian removal and how to rapidly achieve it. Jackson regarded Indians as children when they did white man’s bidding and savage beast when they resisted. He would not protect the Indians from state actions and put the full weight of the federal government behind their removal.
A couple of occasions have ever summoned as much worry and disdain as the genocidal killings in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge; more than 2 million individuals were shot, choked, executed, starved or tormented to death in the twentieth century. The United States, while checking human rights infringement, for occurrence, genocide, ought to acknowledge vital parts in canceling these law-getting out from under affinities, set up a sensible comprehension of repercussions, and give social and finical manual for the patching up of a lamented country. Yet, all through history the system for expansionism has made extraordinary traditions and decimated a broad number of them, from the Romans to the Nazis to the Khmer Rouge; one approach to manage summon
This final straw caused the Hutu people to crave and have reason for revenge. The killing of their leader as well as another Hutu man was now dead. The Hutu people had felt the Tutsis had tried to over throw them too many times and shown too much disrespect to their people. The Tutsis treated the Hutus as if they were their political props to prove their points. The Tutsis treated the Hutus like objects not people, killing whoever was in there way of superiority and power.
Eisenhower feared that communism would spread to other countries but countries cannot be considered “dominoes,” so the domino theory is false. The domino theory was then reintroduced during the Vietnam War and the Kennedy administration (“Vietnam War”). Many people see the domino theory as something entirely true. They think the theory is applicable because of the blood shed in Vietnam and its surrounding countries because of the spread of communism (Moïse). The American government saw Ho Chi Minh as one of the playing pieces in the game of communism.
