Joe Marinaccio Mrs. McCarthy English 10 21 March, 2015 The Flag Raising at Iwo Jima World War II was one of the greatest and bloodiest wars in world history. When characterizing it, one normally thinks of Hitler’s domination and the Nazis. Although, that was a major part of the war, the war on the Pacific was as significant, yet unrecognized to the public today. The Great Depression was in full effect in the US when World War II began, giving many unemployed men a job in the army. This resulted in a surge of patriotism and national pride.
One of their major goals was to disrupt and destroy the South Vietnamese government. Orders were actually given to the invaders to cause maximum disruption to the government to create crisis by killing military and administrative personnel. This reason alone would do some serious damage to the government but another tactic was to kill for “…terrorism and warning.” By killing government officials and private citizens it scared the citizens of not just Hue but all over the area into compliance with the National Liberation Front. The communists also wanted to annihilate Christians for political reasons. The communists always tried to suppress religions anyway possible and because of Ngo Dinh Diem being Catholic and in charge of South Vietnam at the start of the resistance to the North.
Hitler argued that the failure of the New Deal was the cause of the war. The hostility between Germany and the United States caused them to go to war against each other. Once Hitler declared war for Germany, the U.S. had to fight back to protect

The Vietnam War affected millions of veterans and showed the United States that even though they had the most powerful and best military in the world they could still lose a war. Many veterans all across the United States came back from the war with hatred and psychological problems.

President James K. Polk and President George W. Bush had both wanted to go to war with countries that they believed had been a threat to the United States. They both had believed that these two countries that they had wanted to go to war with had been terrorizing American citizens. Both presidents had honestly believed that the only way to settle this dispute was to go to war. These two presidents had manipulated the government and Americans into thinking that that the only option they had left was to go to war. They both made citizens feel that their lives were going to be, if not already, in danger.

“It is the story of arguably the greatest World Series ever played and deals with many watershed moments in and out of the game.” (www.timwendel.org/blog) King, Kennedy, and the Power of Words was a short story about Robert Kennedy giving an amazing speech after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Most of Kennedy’s campaign were hesitate of Kennedy going through with his speech. Kennedy spoke from the heart, he had notes given by his secretary, but his words were “spoken with conviction and from the heart.” I personally have read and watched Robert Kennedy’s speech that night and you can feel the pain in his voice, Kennedy was being completely sincere in his words. The cause and effect in this short essay is mind-blowing and very ironic. Not only did Kennedy hold that crowd together that night and saved them from being destructive, but later in time he himself was also assassinated.
The passengers on the ship knew there may be a possible attack on the ship but Woodrow Wilson condemned this attack as illegal and inhuman. After the ship sank, it sparked some outrage against the Germans causing hostile feelings on the country. (Faragher, Buhle, Czitrom, & Armitage, 2000) A coded message was created and sent by the German foreign secretary Arthur Zimmerman.
