The threat of terrorist attacks changed American culture immensely; the devastation wakened the need for protection and a sense of security. Dramatic measures were taken in order to protect this country, so foreign relations were severely affected. Post 9/11 government saw the “link between immigration and security”, and that by changing foreign policy it would “reduce the likelihood of future attacks” (Krikorian 567).The safety measure in airports were countless from metal detectors to full body scans. “The immigration system has being penetrated by the enemy”, the officials realized which led to unfair accusation of innocents (Krikorian 568). “Overzealous officials” grill suspicious foreigners “to the point of near panic” (Khan 559).
A terrorist threat/ attack and a nuclear threat are real attacks that still go on today in our country and our people are scared of. In my opinion both of them are alike. They make the government have to evaluate everything that is going on and it deters the economic growth in our community, on this causes the government to take advantage of their view of defense against an upcoming attack. A war and an attack such as 9/11 are two different types of attacks. And these are attacks that people will forever remember.
When the Louisiana Purchase was bought in 1803, Lewis and Clark went to discover the mysterious territory and see the changes that could be made into something great we see today. The quote “He’s cleaning up his system to keep his nature pure,” is part of the act in industrializing and having the country look better. Our country America is on going in learning new thing and is in constant motion of changing. Even today in America we are still trying to come up with new inventions and keep our country clean and pure. America still strives to be something great and eye catching to other people around the world.
After the debatable “success” of the atomic bomb there was talk of using it again Every country now wanted to know who had one, where it was kept, and when/if they would be using it Causes Differences between the US and the Soviet Union were intensified by suspicions after the war. Power was largely shared between the Soviet Union and the United States. As one wanted to dominate the other conflicts were inevitable. Cold and warm Open warfare is referred
He also plays on the emotions, or the pathos of the audience by stating “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” (Kennedy) At the time, it seemed the entire world was fearful of nuclear war. This may have come across to many as evoking fear into those who do not stand for what he believes Americans stand for. He also uses words such as “we” and “my fellow Americans” in an attempt to tie himself to the audience. His tone was stern, his words chosen carefully, as to not speak over the heads of the audience, but to talk with them. On can not help but notice the Boston accent.
Words are very powerful, and sometimes the words we use offend people.There are so many different races, groups, religions and just plain types of people and each person may be offended or inspired by different things, but so saying that, it can only take one word to decide a persons opion, or change their veiw on a subject, even if they feel very strongly on said subject. it is this unique ability that make language so speacial. for example, take hitler and the holocaust. using only words, skillfully built into many speech conventions, Adolf Hitler convinced many thousands of people to perform atrocities that they never would have done otherwise, and his words were so effective, that they truley beilved what they were doing was the right thing. But Although many of historys worst events were inspired by the words of dictators, words can also convince somone to donate an organ, risk their lives to save others, and donate to a lifesaving cause.
He was on the front line, he was right there about to invade a place in which he was told he would probably not make it out of. He is solely speaking from a selfish standpoint and only speaking for the people that stood beside him waiting to die. One may wonder what Fussel’s argument might be if he were not on the front line. In conclusion, in the position I have taken, there are some immediate and long term consequences that I could possibly see occurring. An immediate consequence would be anger from people who believe that the atomic bomb was the right thing to do.
‘’Truman was to blame for the outbreak of the cold war. How far do you agree with this statement?’’ The Cold War was a period of great tension between the United States of America and the Soviet Union, which were the two ‘superpowers’ that resulted from World War II. Although many believe that the ‘ideology clash’ between these two countries was the cause of the outbreak of the Cold War, many factors were involved. It would be impossible to summarize all of them in a text, since there are dozens, maybe even hundreds of small factors and events that affected the relations between these two countries, so this essay will concentrate on some of the ‘main’ causes of the cold war, at least according to historical resources. Defining the start date of the cold is a difficult thing to do: Some say it started even before World War II, after the Munich Agreement
Mario Martinez Instructor Marsh English 1A 8 July 2012 I Had a Dream Depending who you ask, 1963 could have been one of those years that could be described as the year that changed the United States. Perhaps the whole decade can be attributed to the re-construction of the United States. One event that was significantly important was a cry of a people of that suffered the pain of persecution and that called to a nation for peace and equality. At the forefront of this event was Dr. Martin Luther King, the pinnacle figure at the time of freedom and racial equality. In this essay I will present why this speech is effective in many ways while using logos, pathos and ethos, in his writing techniques and skills on formal and informal
week 1 Individual Cold War and Communism To consider what it would have been like to live under the threat of nuclear attack brings to mind mass hysteria. I would imagine that living under this type of threat would have been very scary. To not know when or where this kind of attack would happen would make people live in fear. I cannot truly imagine what the people then felt like or the fear they had to be living in. To know each and every minute of every day wondering if this could be their last day.
