Their scholarship seemed to reveal the war as it sordid scramble among imperialist powers. -the new disillusion was clinched in 1934 and 1935 by the work of the Senate committee set up under the chairmanship of Gerald P. Nye of North Dakota to investigate the munitions industry. - The Nye committee purported to show that the United States had been shoved into the war when international bankers saw no other way to guarantee be payment of the vast credits they had granted to the Western Allies. - Nye also charged Wilson with duplicity in pretending to be ignorant of the secret treaties. - The Nye Committee consolidated the isolationists' argument.
In this essay I will explain the rock that the natural wonder of Easter Island contains. Its located in Chile, 30 00 S, 71 00 W. Located 2200 miles due west of Chile and 1200 miles east of Pitcairn Island, is a sixty-three square mile island formed eons ago by two volcanoes. Because a Dutch seaman, Jacob Roggeveen, came upon it on Easter Day, 1722, we know it on our maps as Easter Island. Rich as the natural resources were, over-population, probably, resulted in their substantial depletion. Pollen records indicate the forests were endangered by 800 AD and likely disappeared in the 1400's.
Germany established a submarine war zone around the British Isles and said they would sink any enemy war ships that entered that proximity. Innocent American trading and merchant ships were being shot down and sunk by ruthless German warfare at sea. Germany refused to let the neutral America trade goods with their enemy countries. This dramatically impacted America because much of the American economy was controlled by trade with Britain and France, and moving forward America knew it would be impossible to keep an expanding economy without GB and France. America, despite its efforts, could not remain neutral and was forced to enter World War 1.
In the Confederate States, the hope was that the incident would lead to a permanent rupture in Anglo-American relations and even diplomatic recognition by Britain of the Confederacy. Confederates realized their independence potentially depended on a war between Britain and the U.S. In Britain, the public expressed outrage at this violation of neutral rights and insult to their national honor. The British government demanded an apology and the release of the prisoners while it took steps to strengthen its military forces in Canada and the Atlantic. After several weeks of tension and loose talk of war, the crisis was resolved when the Lincoln administration released the envoys and disavowed Captain Wilkes's actions.
Chile 1973 Salvadore Allende was elected President of Chile in 1970 and ran a socialist government. President Nixon fear that Chile could possibly became another Cuba which followed the Soviet example of Communism. The United States cut off most foreign aid to Chile and supported Allende’s opponents during his presidency. Nixon wanted a coupe by any means necessary to overthrow the Marxist government of Allende. Nixon was quoted in de-classified CIA documents as saying “make their economy scream (in Chile to) prevent Allende from coming to power or to unseat him.” The United States main goal was to get rid of the Marxist government and they had two approaches.
Politically the United States appeared impotent as a result of losing the Pueblo. Not only were we unable to prevent the North Koreans from taking one of our ships but we were then forced to make a written apology. Making a written apology is something school children do, not the United States of America. Yes, a military strike on North Korea following the capture of the Pueblo would have resulted in a larger military engagement on the peninsula at a time when we were already engaged in Vietnam. By doing what the United States did, we only emboldened an enemy that we are still battling
Of course, even though the U.S was supporting dictators, it was far more important to stop the evil Communists! this terrorizing campaign was known as Operation Condor. As a part of Operation Condor, the Dirty War occurred in Argentina. However, no one knows exactly when
Was the Tet Offensive A Greater Reverse For The Americans Than The North Vietnamese? The Tet offensive was a greater reverse for the Americans than it was the North Vietnamese. This is due to the ideological shift in both the USA and in NV which swung the war the communist’s way. This can be examined by simply looking at the American media of the time, which largely criticises the American handling of the offensive and so would’ve demoralised Americans and severely turned opinion against the war. Not only did this happen at home but within the army, and changed SV thinking which allowed them to perhaps concede that communism could become inevitable.
National business interests also enticed the U.S. to declare war upon Spain. Revolutionary chaos within Cuba were detrimental to U.S. investments and trade, which in 1897 alone amounted to 27 million dollars. The rebel’s destruction of sugar plantations hurt not only Spanish, but American investors. Also, Cuba had been viewed for decades by many Americans as an opportunity for further Southern expansion. The control of an island so close to the Florida coast by Spain, equipped with a powerful navy, was a threat to the United
