Osama Bin Laden (founder of Al-Qaeda; a militant Sunni islamist group) justified the 9/11 attacks at New York which violated the USA’s security because 10 years previous during the Gulf War the U.S used Osama’s homeland of Saudi Arabia as a base which in turn violated the security of the Muslim world. In return this justifies the Obama and Bush administration invading Afghanistan then Iraq and the rest of the brutal and violent saga of the last 10 years. During World War II, tensions were mounting when the US enforced a full embargo on Japan due to military aggression on China. In return to this, Japan executed a surprise bombing on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. After Japan’s actions, the US justified its revenge attacks on Japan and the atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
The Bush administration wanted nothing to do with Iraq’s oil reserves, but Hussein could have used the reserves to benefit himself. Hussein “would always use petrodollar influence to undermine U.N. resolutions, seek to spike world oil prices”. Hussein could have used the oil to dominate the whole region and used the currency from exporting the petroleum to cripple the United Nations judgement. With Iraq having such a large supply of oil he could have single handedly raised world oil prices. Iraq also did not have weapons like the United States or the Unites Kingdom.
This caused panic about health and brought with it heavy dietary policies from the federal government. The fifth event is how rock and roll defeated communism. Not only is rock the embodiment of freedom, but it became a vessel for anti communist extremists to reach young people. The sixth event is how Ronald Reagan wrongfully pulled out of Lebanon. Schweikart explained how this move made America seem weak and put a target on our back for terrorist organizations.
Under the command of the Dulles Brothers America looked to "willfully and systematically proceed to crush" the third world's "aspirations for the sake of control" (Norouzi 1). The Basic Concepts of International Relations and Foreign Policy are reflected in the details of the United States intervention in the political affairs of Guatemala and Iran in the early 1950s, to a great extent and in may ways. The era in which the Dulles Brothers were heads of the CIA and Secretary of State departments helped define the time after the Second World War. They also greatly influenced America's foreign policy for decades to come. As a result, the sovereign states of Iran and Guatemala suffered considerably.
The book “After the First Death” was published in the year 1979 by an American book publishing company called Pantheon Books. The book depicts about the story of violence, crime, drugs, thriller, and death. The story involves a group of terrorists that initiates a hostage taking to draw attention of the military to meet their demands of having enough money and to fulfill their agenda. A lot of people were involved with the terrorism, children are drugged and held hostage including the bus driver. It also came to the point in the scene were one of the Military’s son was involved.
One reason was the fact that the United States began an embargo on Japan, ending the trade of Japanese weapons. This limited Japan from obtaining more resources in their expansion. Another reason was that Japan needed oil to help keep expanding and raise their economy. The U.S. Navy was in their way, by controlling the Philippines, which is why they thought they needed to get rid of them. Lastly, both Japan and the U.S. did not agree on each other’s ways of running government.
On December 16, 1998, the United States military initiated Operation Desert Fox against Iraq. The operation was planned in response to Saddam Hussein’s countless refusal to cooperate and allow the United Nations to do a weapons inspections for suspicion of concealing Weapons of Mass Destruction, or WMD. The mission was to strike Iraqi military installations used for production, storage, maintaining, and delivering of WMD, while minimizing casualties within the surrounding. Furthermore, as president of Iraq, Saddam Hussein mission was to use military forces by all mean to gain preeminent power. In order to obtain the power, he executed attacks on neighboring Iranian for personal gains on natural resources, tortured innocent civilians in Iraq
The Cuban missile crisis was said to be his fault. He was to blamed for the situation because he taunted the Soviet Union and they reacted by placing missiles in Cuba. When Kennedy discovered the missiles he reacted in an aggressive manner. He cut off all trade with Cuba after this happened. These events have long since caused tensions between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.
This claim might be a surprise to someone who buys into the myth that Reagan managed to, as Thatcher stated in a eulogy for him, “break the world free of a monstrous creed without a shot being fired”(Ronald Reagan). But should we trust a statement from a hardline conservative political figure about her close friend? Maybe we should ask the people of Grenada. There sure were some shots fired during its US invasion. And what about all the weaponry supplied by Reagan’s presidency to the Mujahadeen and other anti-communist guerrillas?
Alger Hiss was a United States government official and government official Whittaker Chambers eventually threw Hiss under the bus leading Hiss to be “the central symbol in America’s struggle over domestic communism” (17). Hiss tried denying multiple times that the accusations were lies and he was innocent of anything Chambers implied but “on January 21 1950, a jury found Hiss, and attorney with a once-promising career in the State Department, guilty on two counts of perjury - for having lied about his Communist connections in the 1930’s” (17). This eventually sent Hiss to be in a federal penitentiary for four years and also his testimony exposed many politicians such as Richard Nixon and the New Deal. I found this event interesting as Alger Hiss was actually never found guilty of having Communist ties and everything known as of that time were just speculations. I also found this interesting as the Hiss case also exposed many other politicians and associations but those people were never mentioned to be questioned or tried to
