According to Martin Luther King 's opinion over the Vietnam War it hurt both the poor and Vietnamese. As he has said “I speak for the poor of America who are paying the double price of smashed hopes at home, and death and corruption in Vietnam”. The war claims to fight for the freedom of the Vietnamese but the government can’t even secure freedom for it’s poor and african american homes. Also the methods going about freeing Vietnam with violence won 't work as “...Molotov cocktails and rifles would not solve their problems”. Shown by the Kent State Shootings you can’t even protest Vietnam without being met with force.
Like the reporters and camera men at the time, this book provides in great detail what atrocities occurred during the war. “Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried is a montage of graphic scenes.”(pen.org). Because of its graphic violence and abundant use of profanity, The Things They Carried has been banned and challenged throughout the United States. In Troup, Texas 2016, a mother of an AP English student claimed that the book was “complete garbage, trash” and that it contains “nothing…that will benefit [students] physically, emotionally — mentally, morally, spiritually to be used as an educational tool.” (cbldf.org). Because of this challenge to the book, the principal decided that all questionable content regarding student curriculum will be disclosed to parents beforehand.
You worry for your safety, and your children’s. It’s just what you do. Many people think of war as disastrous. Towns ruined, families run out of their houses, and death. Hunt applied letters from soldiers that are families and friends of the Creighton’s to show the hard times of the war.
A representation of a living hell would be the trenches in trench warfare, where over 200,000 courageous soldiers died fighting for their country. Not only did the soldiers sacrifice their lives, in addition they also suffered non stop until their conclusive breath. Trench warfare was the kind of warfare that no one wanted to fight in because of how dreadful it was and of how it seized innumerable lives effortlessly. Trench warfare was deplorable and seized countless lives because of the chemical weapons used, the diseases caused by the deplorable conditions, and the emotional environment. First of all, one of the most treacherous weapons, that are now illegal, utilized in trench warfare were chemical weapons.
Yeah, I understand why they want to protest and make themselves heard, but they are doing it in an incredibly disrespectful way. I’m sure there are plenty of other ways they could think of to get their message across, but what they’re doing is just really unnecessary. By kneeling during the national anthem, the players are being very rude to all of the brave men and women who have risked their lives and died fighting for and defending America. If it wasn’t for these people, the NFL wouldn’t exist and those players wouldn’t have jobs, and especially wouldn’t be making the millions of dollars that they do. I don’t think the NFL was trying to be offensive towards the military, but they were and it’s not okay.
We will never stop until we win back what we deserve.” This obviously shows that Germans disliked the treaty when he describes the treaty “disgraceful” and they were really angry. Count Brockdorff-Rantzau, leader of the German delegation at Versailles said Article 231- the war-guilt clause - was: "a lie". Germany officially denied the war-guilt clause in 1927. He also stated “Those who sign this treaty, will sign the death sentence of many millions of German men, women and children.”-He is trying to portray that treaty of Versailles will make the German people suffer. The Germans also hated the loss of territory.
Through the novella, Leaving Gilead, Patt Carr introduces the idea that war brings out the worst in even the best of people. Even though we might be fighting a war for a good cause, no one wins in war. We all lose something or someone. Through this story, Carr tells the story of the Birdsong family during the Civil war and how it affected them. War brings out the worst in people.
“Or to take arms against a sea of trouble”(3.1.60), this metaphor is to explain how his troubles are like fighting currents of the see. “The undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns,” (3.1.80-81). He makes this metaphor of comparing death to a travel no one knows about, which is why everyone is terrified of death. People put up with the turmoil life throws at us, because no one knows what death brings. The unknown frightens people more than the known ever would.
He recalls "Suddenly, my family was thrown into the middle of a nightmare, being told my brother was going to die…". Rightly so, this touches our feelings. It hurts us to see other people suffer, and we all know that gun violence affects many more people in our country than it should. Most of the time people are very separated on the topic of gun control. Either you are a republic, democrat, pro-gun, or anti-gun and this divide in the public is why nothing can ever get accomplished.
Many were left homeless, roaming the streets of their burnt town. Total War left the south in complete and pointless destruction. William Tecumseh Sherman was one cruel general. He lead a march of veterans that would overrun and eventually desolated the south (Overly). Originally both sides believed the war would be a short one resulting in only
this work of fiction was not well received throughout Germany. The German people felt he had over stated the horrors of war to further his pacifist belief. They felt he was a traitor to his nation and the Nazi government burned all his
The Jews and those of the oppressed were crying out, “How was it possible that man, woman, and children were being burned and that the world kept silent? No. All this could not be real. A nightmare perhaps... (32).” These outcasts of the “Aryan race” arguably experienced the worst this world has to offer, unspeakable and unbearable conditions to even exist in, they lived in the end of hope; they cried out with their only breath for this world to listen, just as the smoke consumed their hope, their lives, and their existence. Grimly, these “inmates of the European prison” faced not only a physical torture/murder of their bodies, but also a crushing blow to their mind, soul, and faith throughout the second war of the world.
Walter Dean Myers once stated that “One of the lessons learned during the Vietnam War was that the depiction of wounded soldiers, of coffins stacked higher than their living guards, had a negative effect on the viewing public. The military in Iraq specifically banned the photographing of wounded soldiers and coffins, thus sanitizing this terrible and bloody conflict.” The Vietnam War, fought in 1955 to 1975, was the longest war in American history. This war was a conflict between the Communist North Vietnam and its ally Viet Cong, and South Vietnam and its ally the United States. During the Vietnam war, tensions in the United States were extremely high. Increasing opposition to the war was causing major division amongst the American people, and many feared that Vietnam could potentially see a victory.
