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).
Due to the increasing fear of a Japanese attack on the West Coast, Lt. General John L. Dewitt recommended that all people of Japanese descent living in America be removed to the interior of the country. In the article “An American Tragedy: The Internment of Japanese-Americans During World War II” by Norman Y. Mineta, former US Secretary of Transportation, Dewitt backed up his suggestion with rumors that “ethnic Japanese on the West Coast were signaling Japanese ships out in the Pacific ocean” and they “had stockpiled numerous rounds of ammunition and weapons” (Mineta 161). In order to combat this threat in case of enemy invasion, the camps would detain the Japanese Americans so they cannot aid the enemy. The warped logic used to imprison 110,000 people purely based on ethnic background was convincing enough to the American people that they didn’t even question
Bush and his administration in reference to the United States of America post-9/11 policies. to place it more accurately, he argues that the Bush administration skillfully used the shock that affected the country once the fear attacks, so as to attain its own goals, as well as the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author stands on the bottom that the United States of America authorities used mass media as means that of pressure on the mass audience. Moreover, media served as suggests that of psychological pressure on Americans since they accelerated the worry that flooded minds and souls of American individuals. At a similar time, the author implies that American’ reasoning skills were much unfit due to the overwhelming power of mass media that bombarded the consciousness of American citizens with terrible news and even additional terrible forecasts regarding the longer term of the USA (Gore, 2007).
The devastation that happened at Pearl Harbor is a memory no one can forget and the speech President Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave to the reassure the United States on justice to be served is just as important. This speech drove the United States into World War Two establishing the US as the superior country for nearly a century. In the wake of the Japanese dropping bombs onto Pearl Harbor, the main purpose of the speech was to push Congress to declare war on Japan. The U.S was in a distraught form after being informed on the news of the bombing. In spite of the fact that the main intention of this speech was to persuade Congress to engage in war with Japan, the speech was also put on television across the nation for the objective of gaining
In President Roosevelt’s speech, there are multiple rhetorical devices that can get a point across. Using these rhetorical devices, the audience may be able to become swayed by the main message being expressed. The goal of a speech is to catch the audience’s attention greatly and persuade them to gain similar beliefs on whatever is being spoken of. In Roosevelt’s speech, the mood expresses a ray of hope yet a feel of strictness. One rhetorical device used by Roosevelt is personification.
Is the film Pearl Harbor, based on the horrific Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor and America’s actions afterwards, an accurate portrayal of the infamous event or simplified to appeal to audiences? The general storyline is correct in comparison to history, but the film portrays altered incidents. While the film is accurate to history in several ways, numerous instances arose where the story was changed slightly to focus on the teamwork of the men and women involved and create a more heartbreaking effect for audiences. Multiple scenes of the 2001 film contain minor discrepancies with history, such as the account of African American cook Dorie Miller and his actions during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Miller was a cook on the battleship USS West Virginia (Hull).
The levels of war interest and topics treated in opinion magazines illustrate which aspects of war history are featured most prominently within each ideology. Progressives’ publications tend to focus on Japanese atrocities and war responsibility issues while Japanese victimhood is related back to Japanese war responsibility. On the other hand, publications by Conservatives and Nationalists direct their effort more toward heroic actions by the Japanese military and treat Japanese suffering more as the result of Allied crimes
entered the war for personal gain and national power. On the other hand, Schweikart and Allen attribute it to the Pearl Harbor attack. Zinn reports, “Japan’s strike against the American naval base climaxed a long series of mutually antagonistic acts,” such as the threat against U.S. markets by Japan’s invasion of China, and the U.S.’s embargo on certain products (Zinn 410-411). He also says the U.S. declared war on Japan not because of the threat to American citizens, but because of “the Japanese attack on a link in the American Pacific Empire” (Zinn 410). Schweikart and Allen agree hostilities started long before the attack and led to it.

It also had long lasting effects that still impact Japanese lives. In the newspaper by Jack Doherty headlined ¨Atomic Bomb Fury Hits Japan¨ after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the president said, ¨It was to spare the Japanese people from utter destruction.¨ Yet, look where it has gone and how much damage it had cost Japan. I encourage you to not listen to these statements as if they were true, and right the wrongs the atomic bombs have done to Japan by unjustifying the act and telling others to do so as
Following the attack by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor in December 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered a speech to the congress about the previous events and what would happen next. In both, his draft and official transcript, Roosevelt addresses what he knew and the measures the United States and others would take thereafter. Ultimately, this speech that was given would convince congress to declare war on Japan starting World War II. Both of the papers show the account of how the invasion in Hawaii was planned in advance and how the United States will do anything to defend themselves; although, only the final draft mentioned that the Japanese forces also attacked Hong Kong, Guam, and multiple islands. The added details from
