On August 2nd, Torpedo boats from North Vietnam attached an American destroyer in the Gulf of Tonkin. Shortly after the attack two U.S. destroyers reported that they were under attack on August 4th. As a result of the recent attacks President Lyndon B. Johnson issued a retaliatory attack on North Vietnam. He also requested for congress to pass the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. The resolution stated “The United States regards as vital to its national interest and to world peace the maintenance of international peace and security in Southeast Asia.” The resolution also gave President Johnson to take all actions necessary in order to prevent any armed attack against U.S. forces.

It is getting to the point that everyone is living in fear. I would agree that security is good, but not when I can’t live a single day without thinking am I being watched. Ever since 9/11 our security protocol has been getting more and more extreme. They went from adding more cops to now checking people’s phone calls and bills. The whole security extremity is getting way to outrageous.
Kennedy’s administration — the year after his election. He played an integral role in the Vietnam war because of his expertise in foreign policy. In February 1965, two years after Kennedy’s assassination and two year’s into Lindon B. Johnson’s first presidential term, Bundy released a memo to the president that outlined the goals and costs of the Vietnam War. His idea was of sustained reprisal “in which air and naval action against the North [Vietnam] is justified by and related tot eh whole viet cong campaign of violence and terror in the South [Vietnam].” (Bloom and Brienes, 162) Disorganized and scatterbrained, Bundy’s sketch had its flaws. By 1965, the Gulf of Tonkin incident had occurred where it was claimed that North Vietnam had fired upon two United States Navy ships.
Freedom is a privilege many of us share. Most of the time we do not give our liberty a second thought, because it doesn’t seem relevant. However, during the holocaust, millions of people did not get to experience freedom, because they were taken into camps and brutally tortured till their death. During these painfully godless times, many would hope and pray for just a taste of the freedom they once had. In Elie Wiesel’s astounding novel Night, Wiesel uses imagery to further the idea that confinement can make one long for the freedom they once took for granted.

The point of Punitive War is not to illustrate the guerrilla actions, but focuses on the Union Army’s response the aggression. The purpose of this study is to educate those interested in military history, such as Officers in the United States Army or simple college students, on how guerilla warfare can and will frustrate a large, professional military force. The message Mountcastle is trying to get across is that guerrilla warfare did had a huge effect on the Union Army’s action and that the true value of this aggressive behavior
Now don’t get me wrong things like the patriot act are necessary for the safety of our nations but I believe the NSA has been taking things much too far. The NSA has been purposely intruding SMS, texts, calls, and almost anything that is considered over the web interaction. Not only is this causing problems for people right here at home but is also making enemies overseas. A great example of this is the NSA spying scandal in Germany. On July 10th 2014 as told by several news site including my citing of NBC news  that Germany demanded that the top U.S. intelligence official leave immediately over spying allegations.
First, Cyber bullying, people that bully others in social media and hide behind a screen. Second, Social Isolation, having a big list of friends in social medias, but in real life you have no friends. And finally, Social Media is dumbing down our society, because people don 't develop their interpersonal skills with each other. Cyber bullying has become a deadly epidemic in our society. Society has become too attached to social networks.
With that being said, teens have no privacy using these sites because all it takes is looking up someone to see a lot of their personal information. A good amount of teens also use these social networking sites to harass and bully other teens. “In a 2013 opinion piece for the Huffington Post, Randy Taran, founder of the nonprofit Project Happiness, asserted the anonymity and lack of accountability on some social networking sites and apps “bring out the worst of human nature”(Rai, Komal and Gurpreet Gill). The teens that are “bringing out the worst of human nature” are doing this by following the teens home. When someone signs up for a social media site that teen is allowing everyone and anyone who has that social networking site to access them, allowing bullies to follow the teens and attack them while they are at home as well.
