Kimbrough1 Adolph Hitler and Saddam Hussein Eagles become Vultures The lives of Saddam Hussein and Adolph Hitler are devastating not only because of the destruction that these two men caused, but also because it could have been prevented if they had both looked in the past, seen what they were headed for, and the many different choices they could have made. Even though they ruled in two different periods in time and different countries there are striking similarities between these two men and the way they ran their countries into ruin. With their foreign policies, religious views, and the international response to these men. The first likeness lies in their foreign policies. Both of them had few allies and did not follow the guide line set for them by the leaders of other nations.

The movie "Flyboys" portrays stories, inspired by true stories of these American heroes. Throughout the film we are able to identify all types of the literary hero including the warrior William Jensen, the teacher/prophet Reed Cassidy, and the trickster Blaine Rawlings. William Jensen, the archetype of the traditional "pretty boy" is the warrior hero of the film. Tall, blonde, and blue-eyed, this loving family man possesses an anxious attitude of returning from France a war-hero much like his father and grandfather were before him. During the movie he goes through an extended stage of shock which impairs him from flying for quite a while.
I compared this film with my knowledge from class lectures of the Spartans, as well as Book 7 of Herodortus’ History. While King Xerxes continues to pursue, King Leonidas will not surrender. Though this film has very interesting graphic effects, and some parts of the plot are in line with what history says there are many aspects that seem overdone or false. This may be because this movie was adapted from a graphic novel, by Frank Miller. Based off the Battle of Thermopylae, this film opens with the accurate description of the rigorous training that young Spartan boys had to go through, in order to be trained at Spartan soldiers.

Hitler, Stalin, and the Bomb Hitler and Stalin both share the dubious distinction of being two of the most destructive figures throughout all of history. The atrocities committed between the two of them against innocent people runs up into the millions. With Hitler, his rage was derived from his disdain to any Jewish person around believe that they truly were inferior to him. Stalin had a deep fear of people rising up against him and killed a mass amount of his own people just to suppress that fear that the people in his country might soon rebel against him. During the time period in which their reigns each occurred, nuclear science was starting to make some of its biggest discoveries in history.
Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech was delivered at Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963. In hopes of planting the seed of equality into every American’s heart and letting it flourish. King expresses his profound and powerfully emotional thoughts while also mentioning momentous decrees such as the Emancipation Proclamation and Declaration of Independence that were signed by our founding fathers in our nations early history. These documents were intended to unlock the invisible cage that once held African Americans hostage from being treated as equals. Centuries later the Negro community was still riddled by racial injustice and oppression.
Dr. Martin Luther King’s speeches and demonstrations would provoke a change in the minds and hearts of the American people. He stood up and inspired a nation into action with his words. With his speech he masterfully uses Ethos, Pathos, and Logos in his rhetoric to provide proof to all Americans that racism and segregation is not the intended foundation of America. With this I will describe the Ethos, Pathos, and Logos appeals that are hidden within Dr. King’s speech. First of all, as he delivered his speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial he analogizes Lincoln in his speech, “Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the emancipation proclamation.” (King) Where the Ethos are found, his use of Lincoln brought authority to his speech.

Teddy Roosevelt gave out a command to invade the Philippine islands if war had risen with Spain.
