In an early November 1967 memo to Johnson, McNamara's recommendation to freeze troop levels, stop bombing North Vietnam and for the U.S. to hand over ground fighting to South Vietnam was rejected outright by the President. McNamara's recommendations amounted to his saying that the strategy of the United States in Vietnam which had been pursued to date had failed. McNamara later stated he "never heard back" from Johnson regarding the memo. Another reason for his resignation is that, McNamara’s health and family life suffered because of the Vietnam War. His children had told him that what the U.S was doing was not right.
7. The effect of the collapsing time in the final paragraph is that it had really emphasized his terror of remembering the war because even though the war was a huge impact part of his life O’Brien fears the memories of it. The rhetorical effect of this irony is that he spent so much thought over going or not going to war that the memories of the war was given no details whatsoever. It was almost not considered as important as the decision. 8.
On the other hand, there was his son, Jack. He was not qualified due to poor eyesight. Rudyard did not approve of it so he used his connections in order for Jack to have a position in the war. With this, we can see how dedicated Rudyard was to his country. He will risk his own son who had an impairment to join the war.

Though this song revolves around the massacre on January 30, 1972 it speaks more about the lives that all this war and conflict are affecting. What's interesting about this song is that it isn’t meant to be a song, in fact i believe that Bono is trying to say that the Irish government was just as responsible. When he says “I won’t heed the battle call, it put my back up, put my back up against the wall” he refuses to fight for his country, and is then forced to choose between his patriotic obligation for his country and his moral vendettas. This is expressed through the distress and anger in his voice. This creates a sense of disappointment and unappreciation he feels towards how his country have handled these situations.
When the war started many American people was against it and want this to end son as possible. They were against it because United States didn´t have any trade with Vietnam or something like that. Many people give their opinions about the war in Vietnam. In the next paragraphs I am going to talk about two American groups fell about the war, the two groups are the American public and the soldiers. The first group the American public at the beginning of the war agreed with the fact that Us was helping South Vietnam, this because the president of the united States in this year told the people that they need to go to war and they have to go even if they don´t like the idea.
Eulogy for Willy Loman I wish the last words I spoke to my father were different and, I wish the last things I did to change my father were different. Now that he is left us, I feel glued by the words we last shared, and the emotions that we last destroyed. I now feel a constant ball of anger, disgrace, and disappointment in the pit of my stomach, bubbling up my throat every time I try to speak. The decision Willy made to end his life, no one can comprehend. An unachievable dream, and a never-ending self-succeeding heart infatuated Willy.
The Anti-Vietnam war moment in the untied states prove that there were people who cared about peace not war, with protesting, sit ins, and the communication to boycott drafting of soldiers so they wouldn’t go to war. The struggle of the Vietnamese workers, student, and peasants against the U.S. were the worse times. Long lasting moments happen especially the impact it had the growth of anti-imperlism, anti-racism, communism and the PLP. Ho Chi Minh, struggled to drive the French out of Vietnam but when they did leave the U.S. took over or tried to like if they needed to protect something. The untied states where being self-fish and not understanding at all.
Lincoln points out that he, as well as the rest of the country, did not want to go to war but realized that it was the only way out of the problems arising. He also goes on to say that both sides had the power to stop the war and that was brewing. He makes clear the fact that, if desired, all violence could have been avoided. Lincoln does a great deal of comparisons between the north and the south in his speech. He brings out the flaws in both sides, and ultimately puts the blame on the feuding between the two sides.
People in America (and teens from all over), usually the ones who have no right to, whine about how horrible their life is when some insignificant problem comes up. They won’t be allowed to go to a party or they have to redo a simple chore due to the lack of effort put into it the first time around. I admit, I too am occasionally guilty of this. But, let’s consider this. Does our life truly suck?
