This attack was a turning point for the United States because this was one factor that brought them into World War II to fight against the Axis Powers. In conclusion, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor because of their nationalist mentality, America’s embargo of oil to Japan and fearing that the United States will attack them first. The first reason why Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor was because the Japanese had nationalistic and narcissistic political mentality. The Japanese believed the Yamato race was a superior race to the other Asian race(Document A). They also believed they will become the “new order” once Europe and America crumble and become the “old orders”(Document A).
Therefore, the United States should not adopt military conscription because not only would it provoke an increased number of military conflicts and inequality, but also would be unpopular and unnecessary. The United States military has been involved in foreign wars since World War 1. Following World War 1, The United States abandoned its historical Isolationism and became a dominant player on the world stage. This policy, however, has caused many controversial incidents in international territory. Such incidents included the introduction of Japan to trade with the United States.
It 's challenging to look back at events and understand the logic of using an atomic bomb without allowing one scrap of knowledge to creep into our decision making. All of this being said, it 's still possible to come to the conclusion that using this weapon was wrong. The belief that a military blockade would end the war wasn 't believed any more than a military blockade without invasion of Germany would work. The notion that Japan was teetering on surrender is silly. They never were far more committed, ideologically and religiously, than the Germans ever were and Germany need a full-scale invasion by three superpowers.
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 next task at hand for MacArthur was working as a lieutenant general and commander of U.S. forces in Far East in July 1941. The norm for MacArthur was working overseas because of the experience he had in human resources. At the end of the year, December 1941, the Japanese invasion of America occurred, which defeated his forces in the Philippines badly. This event is known as Pearl Harbor and affected the Philippines because America had already been not happy about Japan’s expansion in the Pacific and American whad been interested in the Philippines. The American society knows Pearl Harbor as Japanese planes attacking the United State Naval Base in Hawaii Territory on December 7, 1941.
The policy of deterrence, he asserted, was no longer sufficient to prevent a rogue nation or terrorist organization from using nuclear and chemical weapons.This policy was eventually known as the Bush Doctrine. It was used to indicate a willingness to unilaterally pursue U.S. military interests. The United States-led invasion of Iraq represents the first application of the new national security policy. The Bush Doctrine relies on three stands, unrivaled military supremacy, the concept of preemptive or preventive war, and a willingness to act unilaterally if multilateral cooperation cannot be
Some people state that America was justified in going to war with Mexico because of manifest destiny; that it was God’s plan for America to spread to the Pacific Ocean. Depending on your belief system, this may be a valid reason. However, untrue intentions of war, provoking Mexico to start the war, and getting in between a war that should be between Mexico and Texas over rules the one valid reason, manifest destiny. Therefore the United States was not justified in going to war with
Although declaring war against Great Britain seemed to be a deadly miscalculation, and an unnecessary one, that could have lead to their imprisonment once again, the reasons as to why America went to war against the British in 1812 were justified due to the conflicts over impressment and naval superiority, the willingness to prove that they were to be seen as a separate nation, as well as the popular idea of expansion as a
“The Battle of Midway is considered the turning point for the Japanese-American conflict in World War II. It was an important win for America and resulted in numerous Japanese loses” (“Battle of Midway”). On January 14, 1942, the Japanese decided to destroy the American naval fleet, a feat which had not been achieved during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Midway was recommended by the Japanese generals. This battle, if won, could open the opportunity of invading Hawaii and forcing America to surrender.
The use of military force (depending on the situation) is reasonable, but it can also be very unreasonable. The situation at hand is the civil war in Syria and the production and use of chemical weapons. I think it would be reasonable if we attacked only if we were to be attacked but we could invade as well to prevent any further harm if necessary. The only problem with acting is that we might start a war from which would start an increase in taxes as well as casualties in the war at hand. I think that it is reasonable because it might prevent future casualties a possible war with the cost of our own troops.
