Nicholas Roberts Professor Rinehart English 1100 8 September 2013 Be All You Can Be “When I grow up, I wanna be a soldier!” I told my mother. “You know your grandfather was a Colonel in the Army!” my mother told me. I had always looked up to my grandfather; he was the rock that kept our family together. I remember standing in his office with all the awards and commendations hanging on the wall. The sword that hung over his desk made him seem like the coolest guy ever.
The minutes tick by.” the article made it seems like Bush didnt knew what to do. And that footage of Bush's reaction, made some conspiracy theories about the attack on the twin towers were planned, because why would the president not react when his nation are under attack from terrorists? The 2nd article comments on Bush's close relationship with the saudis, the bin ladens. On the 5th column, on the 2nd article which says that after the 9/11 attacks all flights in the whole nation was cancelled. But then again relatives from the bin ladens got acces to fly from USA back to Saudi Arabia.
Consequently to the 9/11 attacks, the United States Government made significant modifications to what is surely considered to be one of the Countries most significant and important documents that has stood almost in tacked for over 200 years. Accordingly, our generation has earned the distinction of experiencing one of this century’s most important controversy. Therefor the debate of weather or not the Bush administration and congresses actions were un-American will go on, for possibly ever. Though no reasonable person can dispute the need to give the authorities we task with keeping our precious children safe from extremists who want nothing more than to see us dead, the tools they need to do what is seemingly an impossible job. Therefore, our modern day Jefferson’s and Franklins are guaranteed to have notched their place in history for acting so quick as to pass such big and heavy bill faster than any legislation has ever been passed before.
The last time there was a draft, typically, congress persons' sons nearly always found a deferment, an "essential" job status, Reserve Officers Training Corp (ROTC) commissions (that did not involve going into a war zone), or some other way to not have to serve in an actual war. That draft harvested hundreds of thousands of poor and minority group members, not the sons of those in power. Those congress persons were still able to vote to send boys off to war ("with a clear conscience?") without fear for their own sons' safety. I should know .
The film points out that every decade since World War II, the American public has been told a lie to bring into war to fuel the military-economic machine, which in return maintains Americas dominance. Industrial military complex is three linked to the military, industry and congress. For a congress defence bending it means job. Loosing a hundred defence jobs in the district could mean a hundred boats, its not just a 100 workers, its
During the Vietnam War, the US only required that draftees serve for one year. So not only was the terrain weather and tactics an issue but experience became one too. In our interview Lt. Terry stated that, “As well trained as we were, soldiers were only required to fight for one year, and we would be fighting gooks that may have been fighting in the area for many years. It would be like your Regis baseball team trying to beat the Yankees.” As fighting really escalated the US took on many casualties. When Doherty spoke to our class he said, “Replacements couldn’t keep up with casualties.” This problem led to another problem.
Are Soldiers still in Iraq? Yes they are! But you are probably thinking to yourself; didn’t they have a ceremony that stated the soldiers in Iraq were being brought home for Christmas in 2011? Many soldiers did leave Iraq but at least a couple of soldiers were needed to keep parts of Iraq safe and to train Iraqi soldiers. President Obama is trying to be re-elected, so he is using the accomplishment of killing Osama Bin Laden, and having all of the soldiers taken out of Iraq.
We discuss any issues we may be having such as car troubles, appliances breaking down and all off a sudden being a single parent for a year and just the whole new life adjustment and anomy we have to make going from having your spouse at home to help and support your everyday tasks to having to do everything on your own is a huge functional transition. From a functionalist perspective the FRG is its own culture. As long as there are soldiers in the military and deployments there will be a need for an FRG. It helps with the communication between the spouses so we can learn from each others experiences that they may be having. There is also an in functionalism in the FRG just based on the fact that every deployment is different and that affects the way the groups are formed.
Virtually all first world countries would have voted against us at the U.N. on the matter of starting war with Iraq in 2003. Countries like Germany and France have been through thousands of years of armed conflict on their own soil, both on the winning and losing sides. Countries like Russia and China (who might like a few regime changes themselves) felt the situation wasn’t as clear cut and moralistic as we were made to believe. Our government’s rhetoric left them unconvinced, as Noam Chomsky explains in the sidebar. Germany, France, Turkey, Russia, Canada, to name a few—these countries acted in accordance with their citizens’ majority opinion on the matter.
Letters from Tuan Lieu November 1, 1964 (Day One), What a day it will be serving under the might of North Vietnam. As my first day of being a Vietcong soldier we immediately get to action. Stepping into a battle field for your people’s rights, felt rather brainwashing than being committed towards your actions. I just never figured why South Vietnam never understood that communism was the best way to fit Vietnam’s strength. We received Intel four months ago that the U.S. has the right to take whatever actions the president wanted to, to defend Southeast Asia.
