It will be you tomorrow.”(Document 2). This statement is from Haile Selassie, the Emperor of Ethiopia, was pursuing help from the League of Nations. In 1935, Italy had invaded Ethiopia and they needed military sanctions, but the League didn’t pull through. The weakness of the League of Nations was exhibited when the League did nothing to discontinue the invasion of Italy in Ethiopia and the Troops sent into the Rhineland (Document 2, 3).

Before the Bombing of Pearl Harbor many events were happening. World War II was the main event going on. This war would soon become known as the biggest war in world history. World War II started on September 1, 1931 when France and Great Britain declared war on Germany after Germany invaded Poland. After the invasion Germany said that it was a defensive action and not a real invasion, but France and Great Britain were not convinced so they declared war on Germany.
World War I began on July 28, 1914 and lasted until November 11, 1918. Differences in foreign policies were to blame, although the immediate cause was the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. The two main sides were the Allies, which included France, Great Britain and Russia; and Germany and Austria- Hungary. Thirty countries were involved total. World War I was the first global conflict, also known as “The Great War”.
As stated in Article 232 of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany became angry and humiliated as it was being forced to pay 132 billion gold marks ($367 billion in US Dollars, 2010) over the next 30 years (Doc C). In 1929, these payments were reduced to 112 billion gold marks ($341 billion), but Germany still fell behind on these payments as they were struggling to pay for their own reparations of World War I (Doc C). As Hitler rose to power, he stopped all of the reparation payments and continued to rule Germany in his own reign. The payments required for the reparations of the victorian countries did not allow Germany to strengthen itself, thus allowing anger towards the Treaty of Versailles to lead as a contributing factor of World War
American entry into World War II would cause a major conflict of national loyalties for those immigrants coming from nations with whom the US would be at war, specifically Germans and Italians.

The War lasted about six years, ending up in 1945, when both the Nazi and Japanese were defeated. In addition, the attack on 9/11 had around the same change. The Government invaded Iraq and went after Osama Bin Laden, then finally killed him in May of 2011. Following both the attacks the economy was majorly impacted as well. Before the date of December 7th, the United States had already had an unstable stock market since the Great Depression.

H.G Wells said, the Great War was supposed to be “the war to end all wars”; ironically enough a few years later a second world war broke out due to Germany feeling like the Treaty of Versailles treated them unfairly and the League of Nations having little to no power. World War II started on September 1. 1939 and ended nearly six years later on September 2, 1945. The war was long and bloody with nearly sixty million civilians and soldier casualties combined (according to nationalww2museum.org). There were five major turning points in World War II.

World War ll had affected the countries who were involved and affected everyone around them. The citizens of America wanted isolationism but Woodrow Wilson had another idea and Japan had other ideas of their own as well. By the time World War ll was over Europe had lost a lot and Japan/Asia had regained most of what they had lost. America wanted to go back into isolationism but Woodrow Wilson went against that by signing the power treaty which led to him not winning the election but also tied America to other countries including Germany and Japan. In 1941, Japan had entered United States territory and dropped a bomb on Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii that killed over 1000 crew members from the United States Armed Forces, that had then later been one of the causes leading to the Second World War.
To start off, The unsuccessful policy of a laissez-faire government during WWI, the Great Depression, and WWII made the U.S change to the new policy of getting involved and stopping problems immediately. Throughout 1914-1918 the U.S experienced WWI which was the world’s second most devastating war of all time and the U.S lost a good amount of soldiers. Following this was the world’s most catastrophic depression that lead the U.S citizens to unemployment and poverty. The U.S eventually get out of this because of the start of WWII. During this war our policy was to let the dictators make the first moves and then we would get involved.
