If it wasn’t for the colonists’ spirit, Americans probably never would have won the war. The British didn’t win, even though they had the best military in the world, because they had no motivation. The colonists’ wanted freedom and they fought diligently to
America won not because they had better soldiers, more supplies and weapons, or better fighting styles. America won because they had moral victories and causes that cannot be counted the same way the English troops can be counted. More often than not throughout the war, it is demonstrated that the intangible features are often the ones that count more in the
The wars that occurred did bring change but were not the only causes of change. World War One bought the most transformation as it ended Tsarist rule and contributed to the failings of the provisional government. The Crimean war and the Russo-Japanese war both bought significant changes but acted as more of a catalyst to the developments rather than being the sole cause. Furthermore the wars that were won often bought very little change to Russia such as the Russo-Turkish war. Additionally there were developments that occurred without war, which illustrates that involvement in war was not the only cause for change.
Unfortunately, we cannot harness that kind of direct information, but primary resources state that life was substantially better due to the fact of how many requests to change laws and bills had been taken into consideration. But there was a competition with a new party, the Republican Party. This party had other ideas besides just inheriting some ideas from Democracy. This caused life to sometimes be separated between which political parties you were
What we don’t think about is the fact that most medical and quite a few technological advancements evolved because of war. Another fact is that, although it’s hard to believe, but war makes countries use their resources better, or at least find better ways to use them. Think about it, most countries try to win wars and to do that, you need to be better than the people that you are fighting, so we use our resources better. Another thing, without war, we might not have certain medical advancements at our disposal; such as penicillin, hydrogen peroxide, and antiseptics. Life would be a lot harder if these things had never been created, wouldn’t it?
The attack in Cambodia was far more public than Laos and had a much bigger impact, thus losing more credibility for the US. Nixon’s idea for Vietnam was to let reconstruction be possible. Basically, if the North survives he did not want them to leave war without major
Causes of French Military Defeat The first Indochina war fought between the French and Vietminh ultimately cumulated to Vietminh victory. However several important factors led to their success. These include the misjudgment of the political situation in Indochina and her surrounding neighbors before and during the conflict; the tactical and strategic miscalculations that the French made; and also the support or lack thereof present within Indochina, France and the allies of both nations. The complicated political allegiances of countries in Indochina and their people were not taken into greater consideration amongst the French. The Cambodian Democrat party, supporting the independence movement gained a majority in their elections, whilst the Laotian King still supported the French; nationalist groups soon divided the country along with French garrison and Vietminh.
D’Souza acknowledges that while there are many materialistic gains to be made in the American society the desire for immigration and the commonly held views of America has a more prominent reason, the American dream is a dream based on freedom. It is not necessarily a literal freedom from oppression but a freedom of choice, a freedom to create one’s own destiny. D’Souza’s most powerful and agreeable argument is that the Americans simply have a better standard of living in comparison to most countries. In many countries throughout the world living conditions cannot be changed. No amount of hard work or experience can change something that you were born into.
America has spent numerous amounts of money on strengthening our homeland security as well as border patrol, which have strengthened our defense but weakened our economy. Although some Americans feel much safer within our borders today, there are still many more that still have fear of those terrorists, but with all the new laws stemming from 9/11 people generally feel much safer in America than ever before. In conclusion, 9/11 has had many a huge impact in America in many ways both positive and negative. A positive impact of 9/11 is that Americans came together as one and showed they were there for one another when times got hard. A negative impact that 9/11 has had is the effect it has had on the economy and also with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
military. So the reason for going to war did not justify actually doing it but the underlying reason would justify it from the aspect of the nations going to war. The Spanish American war is justified to the United States, but perhaps not as morally as what people would think when it comes to war because war can definitely be a lost. The main purpose of it was to expand America. Despite that both nations lost troops America definitely gained land and more respect in the military forces from their other
