The War of 1812 and the urge that the War Hawks had to declare war on Britain caused social, political, and geographical changes between the years 1812 to 1815. The War Hawks were a group of pro-war Jeffersonian Republicans. Since the War Hawks were pro-war, they strongly advised Congress to declare war on Britain in 1812. It has been proven that when the time came to vote, most states voted in support of war. Most people voted in support of the war because of the War Hawks.

In the time frame of the Vietnam war there were a collection of sources of media to explain what was going on with the troops and the war itself. The media could be a clarification of the land of Vietnam. A song recorded by the band named The Animals gives a sturdy explanation of the layout of Vietnam that will be discussed later on. Before getting into the media, what was the Vietnam war and how did the United States get involved in it? The Vietnam war was a very long, costly conflict to stop the communist of North Vietnam spreading to southern Vietnam.
In one verse from the tune Paxton says “Lyndon Johnson told the nation, ‘Have no fear of escalation, I am trying everyone to please.’ Though it isn’t really war, we’re sending fifty thousand more to help save Vietnam from the Vietnamese.”. These lines hit home for many Americans at the time and was driving factor behind the initial anti-war movement. A song that emerged when the movement had become more prominent was “War” by Edwin Starr. It’s filled with a blatantly clear message and directly goes against the entire concept of war.
Since the beginning of time, war has been practiced for numerous reasons ultimately to benefit a group of people or nations. But, when war divides the world into two different sides with the capability to destroy faster than we can create, it makes us question, is war really worth it? With the aftermath of World War One, people we’re still divided, but for a different reason, after a war with a catastrophic amount of deaths we had militarists advocating to fight and pacifists demanding peace. The two sources I have used from this essay comes from a European militarist, Friedrich Von Bernhardi with his book “War a Biological Necessity” and United States pacifists, William James, in his book “Moral Equivalent of War”. Therefore this essay will review the
What was one of the most important events that led to the American Revolution? The French and Indian War was one of, if not the most important events that led to the American Revolution. The war between the French, Indians, and England started many thought provoking ideas in the Colonists minds.

The speech is incredibly valuable because through its recording and written document, many of us historians and Americans can understand the events that took place during 1941. It gives a critical insight of what President Roosevelt was rationalizing after the bombings. His constant revisions of the speech signified his attempt to find the righteous words to express mourning, but also vengeance for what had just occurred. The exact words he uttered became a terrifying chapter for America, for what had occurred on this day, December 7, 1941 would be a dark day in history for the United States. It was a time where thousands of Americans lost their lives, by an enemy that we thought was inferior.

Without the involvement of Congress, the executive branch could possibly abuse its power and make poor decisions, especially during wars. The sharpest conflict between the president and Congress has to be their partial overlapping of the powers on military affairs. While Congress can declare war and raise funds for the military, the president as the commander in chief has “the power to repel sudden attacks” (587). Thus, there were too many cases of the president sending troops out without approval from Congress. Ironically, Congress has only used its power of declaring war five times.
Furthermore, war also played a considerable amount in United States history. George S. Patton once said, “the object of war is not to die for your country but, to make the other bastard die for his.” This shows the idea that human nature is devious and destructive. The United States is the world’s superpower. We are seen as the big brother and other countries depend on us as we depend on other countries.
In the vast expanse of time there has almost always been a conflict somewhere in the world between two or more parties. War and conflicts is how disputes have been settled for thousands of years and even today there are conflicts beginning and ending all the time all over the world. A side effect of these conflicts is the mass amount of resources, namely money that is needed to fund and supply the personal involved in them. This results in the view point that war is a business and there is money to be made from conflicts. “What Keeps ISIS Running” by Egyptian Streets is a rhetorical argument about the funding ISIS receives and the problems and people involved in the process.
America’s War Crime From 1939-1945, or otherwise know as the duration of World War 2, an estimated 2,600,00-3,100,000 civilian and military casualties fell upon Japan as the years slowly dragged on. The two nuclear bombs, Fat Man and Little Boy, killed a combined total of 129,000-226,000, while the entire incendiary campaign only killed 300,000 and injured 400,000 more, and with those numbers the pure lethality of the nuclear bomb is clear. Since the United States Government knew about the radiation and its effects, the nuclear bombing of Japan in World War 2 can be defined as unjustified war crimes. The government can not legally own nuclear weapons under international law due to public safety.
