Many American soldiers had sacrificed their valuable lives fighting. And if the war had not been stopped and continued on, no less than 250,000 soldiers were going to die, as it was estimated. It all came down to a simple calculation: is it necessary to sacrifice 250,000 American soldiers so the bomb wouldn’t be dropped? Another very important detail to the picture is that from the lives saved, it was not only American lives being saved but it was also Japanese lives. The largest number of people killed in war was not at Hiroshima, but at Tokyo, with conventional firebombs.
So many friends and family had been lost, people were angry and wanted someone to blame, so when the time came and the war of terror was announced many civilians were for it. There was not a doubt in their mind that they needed to be protected. Americans first resort was guns, what better way to kill the enemy. They were angry and acceoted the message given to them by the mass
According to Darwin (1988: 65), twenty five percent of the national wealth was needed for war supplies, restoration of industries and reconstruction of the buildings. In addition, Britain did not have a strong military base as a result of industrial decline: the country was short of manpower and could not re-arm itself because of mobilizing man for war. As a result the development of new technologies declined especially in the aviation and Britain could barely defend itself during the war (Darwin, 1991: 43). Although the USA allowed Britain to have large amounts of ammunition without paying for it to be able to defend herself, Britain still had difficulties financially. American aid was very important to Britain as the means given could be used to restore industries and pay for imports of food and raw material (Darwin, 1991: 44).To pay for imports of
How you may say? well the death toll in every month that the war continued there would be a range of 250,000 people unlike the atomic bomb which halted the war. Invading Japan would have resulted in casualties far beyond bombs. The Americans anticipated losing many soldiers in the planned invasion of Japan. In the war Millions of Japanese military and civilian casualties were expected.
They knew that an invasion would require a huge army, would take a long time, and many troops would die, estimated more than the entire German casualties in the war. If the US would lose 1 million troops, Japan would lose 10 million as they would not be allowed to surrender and continue being sent on suicide mission. The United States wanted to avoid this, and end the war
The question of gun control has existed in American society for decades now. But the question remains: are we willing to sacrifice the Second Amendment for a false sense of security? Millions of Americans have begged this question, but it comes down to one simple answer. In reality, gun control threatens the safety of law abiding citizens and strips them of their right the to Second Amendment of the United States Constitution or reducing the effectiveness of the Second Amendment by limiting the amount of ammo to prevent any life threatening incidents. Taking away the right to bear arms is a major security threat to the citizens of America for a plentiful amount of reasons.
Uninsurance in America The number of uninsured Americans is growing at a staggering rate; in fact, the number has reached 43 million, which is the population of everyone living in twenty six different states combined (Committee on the Consequences of Uninsurance, 2004). The debate over whether universal coverage should be available to all Americans has been going on for decades. The people opposed to universal coverage believe that insuring all Americans is too costly and that the resulting bureaucracy would undermine patient care. Those who are in favor of universal coverage believe that it is too costly not to insure all Americans. They believe that the lack of preventative care, and the resulting poorer health, places an even higher burden on the taxpayer then universal coverage would.
According to Gallup, the lack of good jobs in America is a greater problem than the inefficient healthcare costs, runaway government spending, and even global terrorism. The lack of good jobs is a poignant crisis in America today, and is making our nation bankrupt. When GDP is up, there are more jobs in a nation, resulting in better welfare. This is why GDP is so important to the welfare of its citizens. GDP is the sum of all goods and services produced in a country during a year (Ferrell).
In the mid-2000s, when crime rates were declining fast, almost 70% of Americans wrongly said that crime rates had risen over the past year. Analysis: Why gun controls are off the agenda in America What force on earth could convince Americans that down is up? The most powerful force of all: television. TV news -- and especially local TV news -- is dominated by news of violent crime, the more spectacular and murderous the better. TV news creates a false picture of a country under attack by rampaging criminals, and especially nonwhite criminals.
In contrast, involuntary euthanasia refers to ending one’s life that openly expresses their wish to die and requests other individuals to end their lives.  Euthanasia is currently illegal in many countries, including Canada. It has been recently legalized in some cities such as Oregon, Washington, Montana, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Euthanasia should remain illegal because it takes away hope from the patients to get through their diseases, it creates conflicts between religious groups and it could be used for ulterior motives. If euthanasia becomes legal, it would be a treatment option for the terminally sick ones.
