Carter was elected into office when America was looking for a great change in politics but soon after instances like the hostage crisis, Americans began to realize that Carter was not the type of representative that they wanted. The Carter administration and the State Department officials thought that the problem would be over quickly and the hostages would be returned quickly, giving Carter’s image a boost. Unsurprisingly, Carter’s political needs matched poorly with those of Ayatollah Khomeini, the Shah Muslim religious leader of the time. Americans pressured Carter to handle the issue in an American manner with gusto and military force as a small group of university students managed to humiliate and humble the “American tiger.” Carter’s strategy included sending a letter to Khomeini, calling for the resolvement of issues of Iran-America issues but the Carter administration quickly learned that it would take a great deal to get the Ayatollah’s attention.
The thought of another Cold War is scary for many Americans including myself. The last Cold War changed a lot of American lives. Many Americans felt unsafe especially during the Cuban Missile crisis. If tensions do keep rising and another Cold War breaks out many Americans might not feel safe in their own homes. If you add this and terrorism together you will get a lot of americans who are upset at their national security and will want more security for themselves.
The Watergate Scandal was an act by President Nixon, that caused him to become the infamous president he was known as. The Watergate Scandal was a burglary that occurred in June 17, 1972 and was organized by none other than President Nixon himself. The scandal caused a great deal of uncertainty in America as no one wanted to believe that the President would do something so naive and devious. This scandal’s main purpose was to steal secret documents and wiretap phones in order to retrieve information from the
Unfortunately for the United States, this passing of the torch came as a result of a brutal attack on President Kennedy that resulted in his death. In this tragic turn of events, Lyndon Johnson made the transition from an almost unrecognizable Vice President to holding the most powerful office in the world. Although he now had power he so longed for, there had been a terrific and terrible price to pay. As the 36th president of the United States, President Johnson was forced to do his best to lead the United States through and out of the Vietnam War.
Debates, such as the economy never get fixed. But debates are just one of the reasons the U.S. is not a democracy. All in all, the voting statistics, gun debates, and police brutality are some of the main reason why the US isn’t a democracy. Voting is a good thing for our government. The people choose a representative to speak for them in the government.
When Theodore Roosevelt saw that trusts, or monopolies, were cheating millions of Americans, he did not stand by idly; he aggressively utilized the Sherman Antitrust Act to break up monopolies, causing some to mock him as the “trust-buster.” When Franklin Delano Roosevelt was faced with the worst economic recession in American history, he did not utilize moderate, monetarist economic policies; he passed what many would consider to be the most aggressively liberal economic policies in American history in the New Deal, which created programs like Social Security and the minimum wage, even though most of the New Deal was controversial and parts would be struck down by the Supreme
Germany one of the main reasons for the treaty did not like that they were blamed for World War 1 and that they had to pay for all of the cost. At first, Germany didn 't want to pay for all of there cost. Some people might say people could claim that Germany was able to pay off their debts but chose not to. This may have been true but if they chose to it would sacrifice a lot for Germany their economy would crash and their people would starve so Germany could but in the proses they would also ruin Germany 's country as a
All Reagan really did was close a chapter in the book of the cold war but there are still many unread stories and chapters. The collapse certainly did not mean the end of the cold war although many American history books will have you believe this. The Soviets could not keep up with their countries and states so they decided to secede and collapse the union which left Gorbachev to resign and watch the Union go. They were constantly criticized by the US for their flawed system and called it an “evil empire”. The soviets were very poor and seeing the way the westerners lived they were very upset with the soviet
IBT Media talks about how America’s trust has fallen nineteen percent because of the lack of policy and the increase in political divide (Poladian). All things considered, terrorism is being handled whether a productive or crippling path is being taken. Faith may not be a quality shown by several Americans, but a process is clearly being taken over the years to establish an environment lead out of harm’s way. September 11th has left a tremendous scar on Wall Street and all of America. The effects of 9/11 has tested the people of this country in more forms than one.
I think Theodore Roosevelt did not set the country on an unsustainable path to ruin. It’s extremely hard to predict the future on something like what a country will turn into. Theodore Roosevelt probably didn't think about the future consequences of his decisions. I don’t blame him for that he probably thought he was doing the right thing. We can’t blame someone who’s been dead for 97 for the current economic problems.
Jimmy Carter’s proudest achievement and his bitterest setbacks came in he Middle East. Carter hosted the Camp David Accords with Sadat and Begin to set a timetable for granting self-government to the Palestinians. It, however, was not successful because Israel continued to build Jewish settlements in occupied territories and Islamic fundamentalists assassinated Sadat. Also in January 1979 the pro-US ruler fled Iran being replaced by the Shiite Khomeini who preached hatred towards the United States. In November Iran and US tension increased dramatically, when Khomeini supporters stormed the U.S Embassy in Tehran and seized American hostages.
