Germany pushed America to step into World War 1 because they made bad decisions on other nations that also took a toll on America. Germany antagonized president Woodrow Wilson 's neutrality in WW1 by destroying ships such as the Lusitania and going back on promises that they made.

A common argument in favor of bystanders’ inaction is that they would have been in greater danger and put more lives in jeopardy if they became rescuers. However, this is not a valid claim.

In the reading, “From Bystanders to Resisters,” people who were originally bystanders created a strong group that opposed the Nazis. After the ordinary Germans citizens combined in a joint effort to “[consider] ways of fighting the Nazis and building a new Germany after the war,” they “placed a briefcase containing explosives under a massive table around which Hitler and his staff were scheduled to meet later that day” (“From Bystanders to Resisters” 374).

Some would like to argue that it was actually his Hussein’s realization that such power existed that corrupted him. They think that he wishes to return Iraq to a historical age of glory. But the real history that is important is that of the beginning of his life.
