The consequences and the lives lost in the Vietnam War classify as bad judgment by the masterminds of it. McNamara and all the others involved were clueless about Vietnam; all they thought they had to do was use their military superiority in the correct way to keep communism from spreading. The most crucial mistake McNamara made was when he had doubts about the United State’s possibilities of actually winning the war and did nothing about it. He did not want to argue to John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson that we should have withdrew from Vietnam. By doing this, more cities were destroyed, approximately 58,000 dead American causalities, and countless more Vietnamese.
They were completely convinced that they were actually being arrested. Researchers set up a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford University psychology building, and they chose 24 of the 70 students that had responded to the newspaper advertisement. Those 24 were chosen because they did not have a criminal background, psychological problems, or special medical conditions. Ex-convicts and prison employees helped to replicate the prison environment to make it as accurate as possible. Laboratories were turned into cells by removing the doors, and a closet was turned into solitary confinement.
Leroy Brown Since the beginning men have fought, and war has been waged. Some fight for their family, land, or survival. Although, some fight for the sheer fun and pride that comes with it. The first person to pick up on exhibition fighting was Leroy Brown. Leroy was raised up tough, and had to fight to protect what was his.
There should be no exception to the rule! If it is wrong for one person to kill another, then why is it justifiable for innocent men, women, and children to die at the hand of our government because the president of this country says it is the right thing to do? Many nations, including our own, have won their independence in battle, but these victories are only temporary (ML King Jr., 2003). Violence can never bring permanent peace or solve any social problems; it only creates new and more complicated ones (ML King Jr., 2003). .
“For centuries we have seen casualties of war; soldiers who have had various physical injuries and scars that last a lifetime (Stan Tian).” This can tear a soldier’s life apart and even his family and that’s a huge struggle that some veterans must go through every day, it’s not just physical injuries but mental illnesses as well. “Yet until the 20th century little was known about the emotional effects of war on soldiers and it wasn't until soldiers were studied psychologically that we began to understand what had happened to them” ( Stan Tian). Tian explains how war can affect you and he gives a lot of information on the topic of physical and mental disabilities in regards to combat. Stan Tian is a psychologist and studies mental health and helps people cope with and understand about the effects of war such as PTSD. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder in which someone experiences something that is life threatening, a serious accident, terrorist attack, sexual assault, etc.
Many times, in the chaos of war, the fear and knowledge that others are getting hurt and dying all play a role in a soldier’s ability to think clearly. Even soldiers who come home from war unharmed can still feel the effects of the invisible damages of “combat stress". Shell shock and battle fatigue have long been used to describe PTSD but they are also general terms used to describe the normal physiological, behavioral, and emotional reactions experienced during all times of battle. Many times in the past, it was thought that soldiers experiencing symptoms associated with disorders such as CSR were mentally ill. Knowledge and experience has now proven otherwise.
Cherrie's is full with juvenile rumours like this one, and it controls the minds of the young innocent cherries, because they have no way of knowing what is true or not anymore. Also the stories could be put into the letters to help add some entertainment for the recipient of the letter. These rumours are important to the narrative because it shapes the way the soldiers fear and think about the enemy. Alan Bourne wrote to his girlfriend that his mission was to “find VC and kill them”; Soldiers have an almost dogmatically believing that whatever they are ordered is law and must be followed without hesitation. Most soldiers would not even know the cause of the war they just know that ‘VC’ are the enemy and you must “Kill them”.
Where men can do as they please with the women and nothing is ever prosecuted and basically a brave woman who wanted to fight for the country she loves is now going to be accused of lying and is looked down on for even bringing the charges up in the first place. Some justice our miltary has right? These men have the wrong idea they think there invincible and can get away with this and if any action is taken these men become violent. We give these men guns with hope that they will protect our country but in reality we are just giving ammo to a cold-hearted raping killing machine. Even when the men return home and possibly go after the women who asked for help they still have to answer to the military instead of civilian police.
His failings include the real value of imprisonment, the false hood of the risk of being raped or murdered; the simple reality that the author fails to see is that violence promotes more violence. As humans we need to stop the violence at all cost, in our schools, in our work place, etc. Flogging or horse-whipping publicly will not do that. We as human beings need not to revert back to Puritan times as Jacoby suggest, but to find answer to control the overcrowding we have in our prison today and to help those that are coming out of the prisons to make sure they stay
Dropping the bomb on an already defeated country would damage the moral leadership of United States. We should show our values and humane cares. Killing civilians is inhumane and unnecessary since we’re so close to winning. We can even continue fighting with soldiers and still win. Also, by not using the bomb, the U.S won’t be held responsible for all the innocent lives lost from the bombings and won’t feel shameful for the lives lost.
