Aside from the war, America would get revenge any ways, even one that would end the war
Women have had a huge impact on American history. Many seem to think that men were the only people that contributed to the foundation of America. Without the strive and intelligence women brought to the table in the early years of America this country would not be as strong and beautiful as it is today. In the beginning of this country women were seen as home makers. Women stayed home and took care of the children, cooked and cleaned while men were away working and “getting things done”.
In 1979, religious fundamentalists dethroned the Shah and took 66 American hostages from the U.S. embassy. The group would return the hostages in exchange for the Shah’s return to Iran in order to stand trial for his crimes. President Jimmy Carter attempted diplomacy and a military rescue of the hostages but did not succeed. Carter became aware of the consequences of the nation’s dependence on foreign oil and delivered a State of the Union Address.

During the war food rationing was one of the most important tasks that the government faced. The main source of food for Britain was coming through imports from outside of the United Kingdom (especially by the United States). In order to eliminate this strong suit, Hitler and the Nazi Germany used torpedoes to attack the shipment of food that was being sent to Britain via ships. Due to the fact that Britain is an island, the only way for them to be able to obtain food and resources to thrive is by sea. This was strong tactic by Hitler to try to weaken the British people, and try to turn them against the government.
The Japanese invaded China in 1937, which forced America to take action.

The Japanese were vulnerable without American materials of oil and metal (80% of Japanese oil and metal were from America). Prince Konoye, Prime Minister of Japan, wished for a meeting in Hawaii with President Roosevelt to resolve their conflicts with one another.
Furthermore, Wilson had already created a divide by maintaining neutrality, and it made the opinion of the United States of lesser importance in the Treaty of Versailles, seeing as they entered later in the war and received a decreased amount of casualties. In addition to the dissent amongst world powers, Wilson also faced opposition from his own people, with a substantial amount urging for war at the start. As Germany launched U-boats and sunk US ships, the citizens of the United States paid the price. In response, the citizens became restless, pressuring their leaders to go to war, and succeeding in the process. At the conclusion of World War I, President Woodrow Wilson offered his opinion on how the United States should conduct peace in the Fourteen Points.
