foreign and domestic policies because it scared Americans and caused tension within the country and worldwide, leading to a lack of trust within the country. The second Red Scare, propaganda, Russian growth in power, nuclear tension, and the Hollywood Ten were all parts of the war that damaged American policies. Civilians lost trust between one another and within the government. Communism intimidated many people, and the Cold War made it appear as though it would soon take over the world. However, Truman and Eisenhower made it evident that the United States was fighting for innocent civilians worldwide, but they could not promise a steady government or country while the tension exists with Russia, but the nation is doing what they must(Document C).
Tsar Nicholas’ choice to prioritise the war over his people played a large role in the economic adversities Russia was facing, and in no way benefited the war effort, as Russia suffered many defeats. His decision to command the army, and abandon his people, left the Tsarina in charge, creating further discontent due to Rasputin’s influence over her, instigating a further loss of faith in the Romanovs. However, it was ultimately Tsar Nicholas II’s incompetent leadership which truly caused the political, social and economic strife in Russia and sealed the fate of the Romanovs. The February Revolution of 1917 was the final tipping point, and clearly outlined the Tsar’s alienation from his people, finally causing the Tsar to abdicate, bringing an end to the Romanov

During Nixon’s presidency, he was attempting to bug the Democratic Party headquarters located in the Watergate Hotel. While his henchmen were placing the bugs, they were caught, thus causing a huge controversy amongst Americans. Although Nixon attempted to cover up his ties to the break in, it eventually came out that he ordered it to be done.
Our civilization is flinging itself to pieces. Stand back from the centrifuge. There has to be someone ready when it blows up” (87). They are willing to tear each other apart because of the position they have put themselves in through hate. War can not only tear people apart, but also destroy things produced from past generations and made for the future
Working as a student nurse in Radom, Poland, she experienced the horrific consequences associated with destruction, death, and loss of national identity. When Radom was bombed, she kept herself together, tended to the wounded, and volunteered to travel with the Polish army, all while having no idea if her family members at home were even alive. The world crumbled around her, she became an exile in her own country after Poland became occupied, and she was brutally raped, but she continued to fight. I am fully aware most millennials in the United States, including myself, would not have the capacity to endure this amount of pain and suffering without breaking down. Irene, nonetheless, overcame her fears to survive and thrive, and never lost sight of her true goal; to return home to her family.
These allegations have been just as ruinous as being called a witch throughout the 1800’s. During the Red Scare there was an enormous amount of McCarthyism, accusing people with no evidence; this explained best, “Joseph McCarthy thought that it was his duty to get rid of communists in Washington”(Kraine).”Worries that the Soviet Union 's communist ways would infiltrate the United States led to a significant amount of paranoia within the American government” (“Why”).Senator Joseph McCarthy was
Truman proclaimed, “As a result of these tragic conditions, a militant minority, exploiting human want and misery, was able to create political chaos which, until now, has made economic recovery impossible” (The Truman Doctrine, 1947). The blame for the political unrest an instability in Greece would be placed on the Communist uprising. Truman stated, ““The very existence of the Greek state is today threatened by the terrorist activities of several thousand armed men, led by Communists, who defy the government 's authority at a number of points, particularly along the northern boundaries” (The Truman Doctrine, 1947). With Britain being unable to support either Greece or Turkey, support would be asked from the United States. Truman makes several arguments as to why it’s the responsibility of the United States to provide whatever support is
The Assyrians held a huge obsession with war and because of this, many casualties resulted leading to their downfall. Due to the many causalities, their numbers begin to dwindle and outsiders began to see this as an opputunity to attack and take over. In the end, they were in such a weakened state that, they eventually were defeated by the people of Babylon and they were no longer an independent state. The Persian empire came to power with the help of a powerful leader. This powerful leader was known as Cyrus the Great.
They, as conservatives, feel the extreme change in society during JFK’s presidency created problems. The authors feel Kennedy ruined America’s reputation, caused citizens to rebel, and somehow disrupted family life. This is an unfair interpretation. As, multiple times earlier in their accounts, Schweikart and Allen have shown obvious bias towards leaders who promoted change, such as FDR. Yes, the authors feel he had no equal, at least in his time period, they feel this way mainly because of his differences from JFK.
They are just hiding the fact that they are bad people and they make bad decision. I just hate how this book basically ignored the fact that George W . Bush was a bad president, which was responsible for sending our troops to get even with a bunch of terrorists. His rushed executive orders has put countless of soldiers in the Middle East and we are just getting troops out of the Middle East now. This book is expressing a very arrogant
The Rise of the United States most secretive and covert intelligence unit, had a large failure preceding its need. What had also preceded this failure was a larger problem where American Hostages were taken during the Iranian uprising which ended up overrunning the American Embassy leading to the hostages being taken. This ushered in the newly created Special Forces Operations Detachment Delta, (SFOD-D) which was based of the world’s premier Special Forces unit the British Special Air Service (SAS). What occurred during Operation Eagle Claw, was a critical failure of intelligence support and logistical support to better allow for the hostages to be retrieved as well as the operators surviving. What was not received by the SFOD-D teams that

Thomas writes, “But after we removed the fists in Iraq and Libya, without putting a new bottom-up order in place, and the people themselves tried to remove the fists in Syria and Yemen, without putting a new live-and-let-live order in place, a horrifying wall of all against all has exploded” (Friedman 1). Friedman explains that by trying to intervene with Middle Eastern countries in order to make the situation
The Patriot Act has destroyed the public opinion of law enforcement due to technological advances and information collection. With the world becoming more aware, situations are reaching a boiling point. If something is not done to restore the system of checks and balances, the country could lash out with a second Civil War.
