It was at these times, however, Don would either find the remote, or turn a deaf ear. Here, however, he is forced to confront the issue nearly every day. At times, Don sees some truth in what they have to say, but he feels that it is an issue that will never affect his lifetime. He grows sick of all their talk about the ill effects of global warming and suburban sprawl. He simply does not care about what the future holds environmentally.
Moreover, this creates the idea that war never truly ends as it is questionable that Elizabeth’s son may grow up to fight in a war. Therefore, showing that soldiers such as Stephen and wars such as World War One are no different from soldiers and wars today. This leaves an uncertainty next to whether or not society learns from its previous mistakes involving war. In addition, within the chapter of England 1979 the reader discovers, along with Elizabeth that Stephen ‘didn’t speak for two years after the war.’ This finding highlights the damning effects that war can have. Also, many of the other soldiers within the novel suffered from shell shock.
I agree with the fact that war does usually resolve problems by making it clear what is wanted, and enforcing it physically. If one looks at the history of the world, it is true that some of the biggest problems appear to have been solved quite efficiently by fighting. Admittedly, sometimes in politics the decision is made but nothing is actually ever solved. However, I disagree with the fact that violence keeps everyone satisfied with the solution and that it solves the problem in a fair way. Voting in politics is very clever, since there are no advantages or disadvantages as there is in war, seeing as everyone has an equal vote.
The Korean war is often referred to as the ‘forgotten war’ and due to certain tactics by nations involved, particularly America, the fact that it was a war at all is often brushed under the carpet, with USA referring to their involvement as ‘police action’. War was never officially declared. However, all the loss and damage from this bloody and brutal conflict certainly wasn’t a time of peace. However, the winner of the war is ambiguous and in this essay I plan to evaluate It is fairly accurate to state that the Korean War had no winners. At the end of the conflict, all of the involved countries were technically able to claim some kind of success or benefit.
This was one of the main reasons why they gained many followers during the period of the Tsars abdication. Initially the public did think the PG would succeed in helping Russia redevelop from the deterioration of the country that the Tsar was responsible for, however it soon began to show different. They failed to provide food for the country, which is shown through the source of John Reed, an American journalist living in Petrograd in 1917. “Week by week food became scarce.” This will most likely be a reliable source as he is not involved with the Russian politics and government. He merely states what he has seen.
Likewise this sentiment was shared by many politicians and political activist during the Vietnam War era, like the presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy and singer/songwriter John Dylan. Similar to the Vietnam War, soldiers were returning from Iraq feeling unsatisfied and unconvinced of any progress. Today some solders return still home wondering what, if any impact they made over in Iraq. However, in contrast, our military is held in much higher esteem today upon their return as opposed to the experience Vietnam vets endured. Not only did solders return unsure as to whether their mission was accomplished and/or successful, but there was absolutely no fanfare.
As I said before, military was few and far between in my hometown. So you can imagine my parents reaction when I told them I was joining into something that nobody in my family had even considered, nor knew anything about. They were scared, as I was. But as time went on, and my family saw what the army had done to me, they began to relax and understand a little bit. They were familiar with my old questionable friends, and knew that my new friends were leaps and bounds better people than the old ones.
Joining the USCG has many benefits that will basically benefit me in the future. But unfortunately there is a road block in the path way to obtaining my goal and that road block is called a GED. The military does not accept anyone with a GED, if you do not
I did not think of this at first, but now I completely agree with it. Everyday people live their lives as If nothing bad in the world exists. I think that Golding was trying to portray this optimism as idiotic. During the war he probably witnessed people carrying on with their lives as if nothing was going on when in fact many people where dying and the human race was turning in Golding’s eyes savage. One thing I disagree with is the topic of the officer that saved the boys.
To the populations of Europe war seemed to be necessary and all thought that it would be a short war. Unfortunately the soldiers didn’t come back home for Christmas as expected and the quick and glorious victories that were expected didn’t take place. Why can one say that WW1 lasted so long? This is the question that will be answered through the whole following essay. In the first place, one has to mention that the two opposite sides, which were in war, were of similar strength.
