There is not enough national interest in such actions for the United States to sacrifice the American lives. The Afghanistan might have been seen as a country opened for a democracy, but as the attacks from 11 September showed, the American view of the spread of democracy is not viewed by the affected nations in the same light. Probably because these interventions had not yet ended by the time Kirkpatrick finished her book, she focused only briefly on these issues. She did nevertheless consider the US involvement as potentially unsuccessful. In the case of Afghanistan, there would be a point of trying to institute a democratic regime if it was right after the won Afghan war from 1980’s.
It took William Jefferson Clinton seven month to realize that people need apologies not for the deed, but for the lies. A close look at the speech opens a wide range of elements did not manage to make it truly appealing for the citizens of the United States of America. In his speech, Mr. Clinton admitted he did a wrong thing and at the same time he did not truly show how much he regretted that his “misbehavior” lead to irreversible consequences in his private and political life. The key failure of the speech is that Mr. Clinton moved the accent away from the affair he had to the necessity to concentrate on more important things. In other words he told the society that they are stuck on unserious matters, while important political events are taking place.
Greenwich did not do any “due diligence” which is the reason for getting sued because they did not check and that’s how Madoff was able to get away with the scheme. Greenwich should have seen that he was using his own money while he was pocketing the money from investors and they could have stopped him. 8. The SEC did not act upon the information by Markopolos because Madoff had a good reputation at the SEC and had many connections with the people within the SEC, so they didn’t even bother conducting an investigation. 9.
President George W. Bush declared, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve”. (History) A day that has changed the way we think and the way do things. Take nothing for granted, especially from your loved ones, you never know when they will be taken from
The only nation capable of incorporating all of the above requirements is the United States of America. But No one appointed the United States the world’s policeman. The government's founding document, the Constitution, does not and could not do so. A very recent survey found that America’s biggest haters include Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Russia and Yet America under the New Leftist Obama regime is losing its allies and gaining more enemies with its ‘humanitarian’ foreign policy that seeks
The Patriot Act authorizes unethical and unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens with a negligible improvement in national security. Free speech, free thinking, and a free American lifestyle cannot survive in the climate of distrust and constant fear created by the Patriot Act. The words that Bush once said about protecting civil liberties have been forgotten. Undoubtedly, The Patriot Act takes away individual privacy rights and liberties from American citizens in exchange for the “greater good” of the country. The first reason of how the Patriot Act negatively affects our society is by taking away freedom of speech and the right to express and communicate ideas.
Furthermore it is unclear whether it was meant to be a mutiny, aiming to overthrow the British or simply a rebellion that occurred due to opportunistic timing. Personally I believe that although the Mutiny had a large impact, it never posed a serious threat as the sepoys had neither the organization nor the equipment to defeat the EIC troops. I also think that the mutiny had no real aims for independence but was aggression born from built up resentment towards the British. Firstly it was made clear in the reaction of the British that they were much better equipped than the rebelling sepoys. The British reacted violently; using cannons to literally blow rebels apart as well as firing squads and hanging mutineers.
The Easter Rising was a complete failure and did not further the nationalist cause. Discuss It was not much of the rebellion of the Easter rising which changed the attitude of the Irish people- it is generally its aftermath. MacNeill himself, the volunteer’s Chief of Staff was against a premature uprising: “it could have no possible chance of success against the British forces and would lead to a reckless waste of life.” Though, MacNeill fellow commander Pearse, had taken a different approach and quoted that the question of military success or failure was largely irrelevant in the “blood sacrifice” to die for Ireland. Pearse and MacNeill had both taken different reactions towards the rising and therefore had stimulated Pearse’s plans to be cancelled by MacNellli. Moreover, the rebels of the Easter rising had neither received any outside help as the German ship which was carrying arms to the rebels had been intercepted by the Royal Navy and also had their numbers outnumbered by soldiers and armed police.
Another Major flaw was that “the country, whose president, Woodrow Wilson, had dreamt up the idea of the League - America -, refused to join it.” The league’s most powerful militaries Britain and France not only suffered casualties, but also economically as they were greatly in debt to the United States. Because of this neither country was enthusiastic to get involved in disputes that did not affect Western Europe. Therefore the League had no military might and could only enforce economic sanctions in hope that they worked against aggressive nations. All these flaws point to signs that the League of Nations was a failure. However, even though there were a few setbacks, the league was a success in many ways.
I could blame the defeat which would have been the result of my action on him and come out as Peacemaker…But I had a greater obligation than to think only of the years of my administration and of the next election. I had to think of the effect of my decision on the next generation and on the future of peace and freedom in America and in the world.” However, this idealistic standpoint was mere propaganda. In private, President Nixon would favour a more militant and aggressive approach. This contradictory position not only exposed Nixon’s vulnerability to public opinion, but also his disillusion and misunderstanding of the complexities of such a war. It is imperative to understand the factors which influenced President Nixon’s strategies and decision making during the Vietnam War.
