Even scientists who worked on building the bomb were opposed to its use. Crimes of humanity are usually murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation, and other inhumane acts committed against any civilian. The dropping of the Atomic bomb killed thousands of people and scarred all the people who survived permanently. Seven scientist, who had helped build the bomb, submitted a report to the Interim Committee, which advised the President, saying “If the United Sates were to be the first to release this new means of indiscriminate destruction upon mankind, she would sacrifice public support throughout the world, precipitate the race for armaments, and prejudice the possibility of reaching and international agreement on the future control of such weapons” (John Toland, ibid, p. 762). The scientists are the ones that know best about the bomb, they were the ones that built and designed it.
The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed millions of people, left families with nothing, and leveled cities. The war would have gone on for a couple more years if we had not dropped the bombs and sent troops to Japan instead. The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was justified. This is one of the pros for the atomic bombing on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. One of the pros for dropping the atom bombs is that the Japanese would have not surrendered.
Japan already had over 60 cities defeated and they knew more devastation was to come, that’s why japan had asked the Russians to intercede for them and had indicated that they would surrender if allowed to keep their emperor. This shows that the dropping of the bomb was completely unnecessary. General Dwight D. Eisenhower claims the uses of atomic weapons were an excessive use of firepower and were not required in order to reach a peaceful outcome with Japan. People believe that the Americans only dropped the bomb to justify the $2 billion spent on its development and not to forget they wanted to demonstrate their power to the rest of the world. And so at that moment, USA became the most powerful nation on earth.
Sophocles seems to even mock the believers a few times, by telling the audience how there is no point in struggling against what is meant to happen, In Oedipus Rex, we finally see the conclusion of the prophecy made at the beginning of the Oedipus Trilogy. As Oedipus tries to hunt down the man who killed Laius, the audience already knows that it was in fact himself who did it. The audience at the time still believed in prophecies, so they would have expected Oedipus to kill his father and marry his mother. Sophocles seems to even mock the believers a few times, by telling the audience how there is no point in struggling against what is meant to happen, In ancient Greece, the Greeks accepted Fate to be a reality that no one could control, and that determined the course of an individual’s life. Nowadays the idea of fate sounds ridiculous and has become something that belongs in a fantastical tale.
At least majority of the time the people I am destroying are just idiots who lived close enough to a volcano. I mean seriously if you are that dumb you should be wiped off the planet. So you believe that we are arguing two entirely different points of belief is invalid, we are arguing what is the correct answer for EVERYONE because if there is a correct answer then it has to be able to apply to the majority. We are arguing which is more of the correct answer for the MAJORITY not just for you. On to your points which you concede early you have no idea how to beat me
“If (the Holocaust) is something like a religion... that in a few years time no one will believe this particular legend anymore. They will say, as I do, that atrocities were committed. Yes, hundreds of thousands of people were killed, but there were no factories of death.” - David Irving (in a recent trial, suggesting Irving was an Anti-Semite, and associate with extremists who promote Neo-Nazism) What this quote is trying to suggest is that the Holocaust (Mass extermination of the Jews) never actually happened. The reliability of this source is poor, because the purpose of this source is Irving looking to promote Nazism, by attempting to disprove the Holocaust. I can also judge the reliability as poor, because I know from other sources and my own knowledge that there were indeed extermination camps.
But I think that the unique technique, which the politician applies throughout the whole speech, is rhetorical questions: “Was it because all our predecessors were ‘thick’?”, “Were those people not university material?”, “How can they have strength if they do not have care?” and etc. (there are thirteen rhetorical questions in this speech). So, in my opinion, using rhetorical questions in the introduction creates Mr. Kinnock’s own style of speaking. In the next part Neil Kinnock expresses his point if view about talents and opportunities of our great-grandparents. The politician says that our ancestors were not ‘weak’, they had abilities to have an education.
Knowing this, the mysterious “bomber” got enraged that he pretended to kill himself in front of Jack and Harry. Everyone thought that the “bomber” is dead and that the peace is back. This “bomber” fired a bus that was just right in front of Jack. The “bomber” called Jack and told him that he wants a big amount of money and that if he doesn’t get it at a specific time given, the “bomber” will fire another bus called, 2525. The catches are, no one gets off or the bus will explode, the driver cannot slow down before 50kmh or the bomb’s timer will turn on, and the only one who knew was Jack Traven.
By no means did he have to continue but because the authority figure told him to, he did. Obedience of authority is simply people in charge telling others what to do and them doing it. This has been ongoing for years, and especially apparent in World War II with Hitler demanding the Nazis and death camps to kill all of the Jews. Even with famous history, it is still said that people will not obey authority if doing so with affect negatively another person like with injury. Milgram’s experiments proved otherwise.
A month later Britain created their own chemical weapons because if they didn't then Germany would be the first country to win the war because of technology. That tactic of duplicating others' weapons in wars has occurred many times in the past and now. In WW2, when the U.S. created the atomic bomb, other countries followed and created their own atomic bomb. Also the use of poison gas proved that Germany didn't care about honor and courage of the old wars and just wanted to win. This also occurred in the Second World War when the U.S. had used the atomic bomb on Hiroshima.
