He feels somewhat threatened by Europeans navy so he figures that if he can mimic theirs then there would be nothing to be afraid of. Tsar Peter the Great did rule the Russian Empire and he must have liked Europe if he wanted a navy like theirs. He even went as far as changing the Russian capital and culture to be more like Europe. He obviously liked European ways and maybe a little jealousy took place to make him want to change the navy to be like Europe’s. Doc.
Enlarging the EU would bring democratic institutions, protect human rights, and would end the divisions in Europe which would benefit the member stated who would be bringing peace to the region. The more countries that were involved within the EU, the more successful and significant it would be. It was not only the economy of others which would be an advantage to member states but also the links that other states had. Former communist states had links with Russia which the EU could use for diplomatic link as Russia would not join. The USA and Russia were in favour of the expansion because eastern states would be involved in western politics and their systems.
This is because the whole reason Vietnam got involved in the first place was to aid France. Truman wanted to support France because he believed that Vietnam was important for the success of the Cold War as they didn’t want the Communists to expand. So even though there was a clear reason for why Truman should support France there is no clear reason why Eisenhower should stay involved in Vietnam. If he had removed troops earlier, then there would have been no US- Vietnam War. Also the war is Eisenhower’s War because Eisenhower changed tactics since Truman.
According to Lafore the French ambassador went far beyond his diplomatic solidarity. Also Paleologue’s “actions and influences offer a precise counterpart to those of Tschirschky in Vienna. Lafore states that different ambassador might have made different decision, which might lessen, the probability of war. Another significant man to discus then talking about mistakes in World War one is Sir Edward Grey. A British Liberal statesman according to Lafore could have taken a clearer viewpoint, which might have saved the peace in the world.
In the early days of WW1, President Wilson asked the US public to remain impartial in stance and action to the two sides of the war. It was his intention to exemplify the ideal democratic peaceful nation and maintain the USAs policy of isolationism throughout this European war. However, this aim was not met, due to the a number of reasons, these being, the allies debt, the safety of US shipping, the Zimmermann telegraph, general dislike of Germany and Wilson’s desire to be involved in the creation of peace in the conclusion of the war. These contributing factors lead to the USA entering WWI associated with the allied powers in April 1917. Throughout the early to mid 1900s it was widely accepted that Wilson was pushed to enter the war purely based on his business interests, being the trade and debt aspects the his relationship with the allies lead to as suggested by C. Beard.
We should measure effectiveness by whether Henry and Wolsey achieved their aim and what the country gained from the policy. Due to England being a smaller European power, war was a major drain on resources and was simply not affordable. As well as England’s economy suffering under war Henrys status could not be upheld by the victory of war alone. To avoid war being a further burden on England, Wolsey decided to create a non-aggression pact between all major European nations. France, England, The Holy Roman Empire, Spain, Burgundy and the Netherlands, all of whom agreed not to attack one another and to come to the aid of any that were under attack.
America’s first foreign policy formulated by George Washington and John Adams had, as its primary goal, the avoidance of war at all costs. Washington and Adams had many reasons to support their decision. Although the French disagreed with their decision, it would be a new country’s best interests to stay neutral with a country that they influenced revolution upon. In 1794, Washington proclaimed the Proclamation of Neutrality when a revolution broke out in France. The French diplomat, Citizen Genet, was sent to America to discuss terms of their alliance now that they were in the time of need.
This definition accepts that restrictive policies were in place but implies these were justified as they helped provide security and stability. (A) and (B) propose the more simplistic viewpoint that Napoleon was not just using the police to impose security, but instead using them to crush all opposition and create a “Police State”. (A) and (B) fail to provide enough convincing evidence in favour of their argument and so the title of “security state” is more suitable. However, on the other hand, it is also essential to look at whether this form of policing within France was actually introduced by Napoleon. Even though (A) and (B) present Napoleon’s regime in a rather cynical light, neither claim he solely introduced a “Police State”.
It also showed France and Great Britain that America was beginning to form its own government, which would help achieve respect as a country. Document D shows the John Jay’s Treaty of 1784 where Britain agreed to the request of the states that they abandon their trading posts in the north-west and limit ship seizures because, America feared that Britain did not accept the Treaty of Paris and would later rebel. This agreement shows that the American government was earning respect and was becoming a stronger country that assumed some power in the world. Document E indicated how the articles were proved effective because the map shows the different Land Ordinances between the dates of 1781-1802 made by congress were very successful. Congress was able to handle these difficult tasks which seemed unsolvable with such understanding.
Model answers: The Peace Treaties of the First World War What did Lloyd George hope to achieve from the Treaty of Versailles? 4 marks Lloyd George hoped to achieve a lasting peace at the Paris peace conference. He also needed to make Germany pay for starting the war as the British public had voted him in as Prime Minister on the promise that he would do this. He personally did not want Germany to be crippled as he feared that this would lead to resentment and could lead to them starting another war in revenge. He also did not want them crippled because Germany had been Britain’s leading trading partner before the war and he wanted this trade resumed so that Britain’s economy could grow again.
