And for my part I know no personal cause to spurn at him but for the general. He would be crowned: how might that change his nature, there is the question… that his will he may do danger with. Th’abuse of greatness is when it disjoins” (2.1.10-19). Another point to add is how is the last stab to Caesar, from Brutus, the killing wound? Caesar was stabbed 32 other times by other conspirators who should be prosecuted.
This essay will explore this interpretation of Haig and the generals, but in order to provide a balanced view, I will also consider the positive interpretations of Haig as a leader, as many sources from the time and recently praise him as a good leader. At the time of the war and after, soldiers criticised Haig and the generals , Haig was criticised because he made commands without being in trenches. In source B2 a soldier who had watched his friends die around him due to Haigs incompetence and bad planning, wrote “it was pure bloody murder. Douglas Haig should have been hung, drawn and quartered for what he did on the Somme. The cream of British manhood was shattered in less than 6 hours.” This suggests that he wanted Haig to be punished due to his loss of so many of his own men, but also due to his own resentment towards him.
McVay was used as a scapegoat by the Navy because they needed to place the blame upon someone other than themselves and McVay seemed to be the perfect candidate. The navy also had failed to utilize their intelligence in ways of communication such as the top secret ULTRA. 3. After all the evidence was presented, the testimony of the surviving sailors, the testimony of the Japanese submarine commander, and all the information finally released about the naval errors, why did the government still refuse to exonerate Captain McVay? What was he actually found guilty of, and do you agree or disagree?

He buys an expensive wardrobe and checks himself into the Waldorf Astoria hotel. Paul has a night out on the town with a freshman from Yale that end in a bad note. Paul finds out that his theft has gone public in Pittsburg and his dad has come to look for him. He has one last dinner at the Astoria, wakes up the next morning and takes a cab to a set of railroad tracks where he jumps in front of them and commits suicide.

In “The Lesson”, Wolff says that even though it wasn't their choice, they felt what they did was justified. “The process by which we helped lay waste to My Tho seemed not of our making and at all times necessary and right.” In contrast, the narrator in “The Man He Killed” seems to think that it was pointless and if they only met at a bar, they would have had a grand time. “You shoot a fellow down/ You'd treat, if met where any bar is,/Or help to half-a-crown.“ (Hardy, lines 18-20) 3. “The Man He Killed” makes me think of the American civil war. There were families that were fighting against each other.
Based on my understanding of the theory I believe that Lt. Colonel Markinson was a Guardian. He believed in his role as being the right hand to Colonel Jessup. Markinson followed orders when his commander stated them and he later realized the Santiago’s death was his fault and states that in his suicide note to Santiago’s parents. Markinson also felt that what occurred was wrong but could not to anything really to stop it because he was following direct orders.
And as far as Zimmerman claiming the Stand Your Ground law, does that mean someone should die at every quarrel because they have the right to ‘stand their ground?” Smith makes another valid point with his last statement. If the NRA was to nationalize this law, there would more “justifiable homicides” than ever in history. Ending the questioning of Zimmerman he stated that “If I was put into Zimmerman’s shoes, I would have stayed on the phone wit 911 and I would have been the best witness I could have been. I would not have pursued
The military treated sodomy (which was then described as anal sex) as a sufficient ground for the dishonorable discharge of even the most decorated officers. Take for example, Lt. Frederick G Enslin. He was dishonorably discharged proceeding military charge of sodomy. George Washington, to the surprise of many, was not entirely thrilled about letting him go, but understood that the Articles of War must be upheld, it is said the Washington
