However, the first try to overthrow the Fulgencio that failed was through the judicial system which does not follow the Crane Brinton’s stage 1. Furthermore, there weren’t change or new ideas in the beginning of the revolution since not many people were involved in the revolution which also doesn’t fit in Brinton’s revolution system.Fulgencio didn’t try to reassert anything at that time since he didn’t lose any power. And he was not afraid of any of the rebels which Castro and his rebels attacked the barracks but failed once again. It doesn’t fit in Brinton’s revolution system since there weren’t any other allies against the president. It was only Castro and his rebels again Fulgencio.
The bunkers are where Larry got his first experience in the field, He spent his first 13 months protecting the bases.

When I first arrived in early January, I was sent to one of the bases as a sort of “ Protection” I was there until February of ’66, my first 13 months was up.I got rotated out and back to base camps, but I will never forget the time I spent there because that is the first taste I got of what my life was going to be like”. The bases are a significant part of the Vietnam experience because those bunkers oserved an important role during this time another veteran official describes the tunnels at “French bunkers served a key role during combat operations, including as a base for Communist attacks against nearby Saigon. VC soldiers lurking in the tunnels set numerous booby traps for U.S. and South Vietnamese infantrymen, planting trip wires that would set off grenades or overturn boxes of scorpions or poisonous snakes onto the heads of enemy troops.” The quote is showing the importance of the bunkers and explains the role that set up Larry’s military

When that happened, it gave the government to do treaties fairly, voluntarily and peacefully. No one that was powerful, never even the president, can force Native Americans to give up their land. President Jackson ignored the letter of the law made by the government and he forced the Native Americans to leave their territory where they lived for many
His real name, Eliezer Wiesel, no longer matters to the SS officers, and Elie is solely a body assigned to a number, nothing else. His name has been what he identified himself as since he was born, but that is taken from him and replaced with a meaningless sequence of numbers. Later in the memoir, an SS officer 's tries to strip Elie of another possession, his shoes, but Elie refuses: “I refused to give up my shoes. They were all I had left” (Wiesel 48). Shoes are not commonly something that humans have a very strong emotional attachment to.

“ Aaron, it's been half a day and our ships are standing still, I will command the guards to take their places in the paddling room, then we can move without the need for the wind or the stream” Lord Swann said. “ We have to resume our spot, until the stream build up its force again” the King answered, after he gestured with his eyes the disapproval of Swann’s suggestion. “ Aaron, no man ever sailed to the Forbidden Land before and came back alive. It’s never been drawn on the map of the seven Kingdoms. What we know about it will be mythical if it is faced with the facts” Lord Swann said.
My traits were congruent during that period in areas of emotional stability, social support, and personality. I found no difficulties in setting realistic goals and using strategic stress-coping approaches. I felt easy being with well-known classmates, who always listened to me when I had a hard time. There were almost no conflicts among people, so the social environment in my alma mater provided me with security, and never irritate me. I remained emotionally stable at that period, thereby attributing myself as having high emotional intelligence.

According to the President’s Commission on the Assassination of Presidents John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald did kill President Kennedy by himself. I have to agree with them because evidence shows that there was only one killer, which was Oswald. To this day, it still is a mystery whether Harvey was even the killer, but the evidence that was found all points to him. According to the Commission, they found no evidence that anyone assisted Oswald on the assassination (177). He was not involved with any group, persuaded or encouraged by any foreign government, he was not involved with any political party, was not associated with the FBI, and there was no relationship between Oswald and Oswald’s’ killer Jack Ruby (177).
