Many people throughout the Reign of Terror were killed by a guillotine. This affects not only them but their family and friends too. Life is the biggest thing anyone has to lose whether it’s yourself or a loved one. 20,000-40,000 people died from the guillotine alone.

Eisenhower had no love whatsoever for McCarthy and his plan was to take him down. Though condemning him was not the proper way to approach the disaster McCarthy created, for Eisenhower did not want to upset any of the Republican Party who had jumped on the McCarthy bandwagon. McCarthy helped himself to his own destruction when he began publicly condemning the United States Army. This lasted a mere eight weeks before the Army attacked back. Overall, “McCarthyism” did nothing but hurt the United States.
These numbers mean tragic and brutal deaths in addition to the separation of countless families. Equally abhorring is the repercussion of chemical warfare. According to Jason Grotto in his newspaper article, ”A Tainted Peace”, thousands of gallons of herbicides and defoliants were sprayed over fields of crop and villages by the U.S. to target the Vietcong—southern Vietnamese rebels who supported communism—and their food supply (1). The result of the spraying is indisputable as stated by Grotto that 5 out of every 100 children in Vietnam are born some form of physical or mental abnormality, a four times increase since the start of the war (1). This places an immense strain on society as so many children are born with severe deformities—including babies born with organs on the outside and missing external body parts.
Such an atrocity rattled the very core of the American people. This massacre took the whole world by surprise and drew massive media attention. This moved Henry Kissinger to attempt to organize another peace talk with the North Vietnamese but this too failed. The Vietnam War had produced many political, social and military disasters for America. Lyndon Johnson kept spending money on the war without adequate funds to pay for the expenses.
Since there was an estimated number of two million people killed during the reign of the Khmer Rouge it was known as the Cambodian Genocide or Cambodian Holocaust. There are leaders all over the world but one leader in particular is Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge (the group he led) took over Cambodia and killed many people to succeed their goal of an agricultural reform. When the leaders of the Khmer Rouge were being persecuted Pol Pot was in a way lucky because he died peacefully while he was waiting for
To avoid communism, millions of people fled to foreign lands. Many died because of massacres, starvation, and depression.There is no end to the Vietnam War as well as any war when it still hurts humans by many ways. Sisters still look for their brothers. Mothers still miss their children. Humans still wait for the families.

The origins of illegal immigration date to the late nineteenth century. “In 1875, a federal law was passed which prohibited entry of convicts and prostitutes. In 1882 President Chester A. Arthur banned almost all Chinese immigration to the United States, and shortly thereafter barred paupers, criminals and the mentally ill from entering. Although this affected only a small percentage of immigrants, there were now distinctions between legal and illegal immigration” (End Illegal Immigration).According to this quote which came from the article “Americans working to stop Illegal Immigration” the United States has always had a problem with illegal immigration. Even though immigrating illegally to America might be considered wrong and a crime by some American people sometimes it’s necessary.
