While the more sophisticated of the US advisers realised that the domino theory was too simplistic in an increasingly non-linear world, split not just by ideology but also historically through ethnic and nationalist conflict, this didn't mean that the USSR and China would exploit any weakness shown by the USA. Cold War Considerations: Western Europe and the USSR De Gaulle's France was challenging US leadership in both Vietnam and Europe. Anti-American riots tore through Panama which was merely the most obvious show of increasing hostility to the USA in the western hemisphere. There were fears that one of the two Communist superpowers might be tempted to use this, forcing the USA to get involved in other local conflicts against their will. Vietnam and the survival of the South were considered a central part of the maintenance of a stable world order, and LBJ in particular said that if Chinese aggression could be contained in South East Asia then it would “give the pole on
In his work, Fleming explained that if the Soviets wanted to attack the united states of America they had done it because they had all the necessary equipment but at that period the nation was more interested in its inner politics than conquering the world. Seeing the Soviet Union as its biggest threat and being afraid of the “Domino” effect, the American government decided to take actions by supporting the rebels in Latin America and countries that were gaining their independence in a hope that these societies will adopt the capitalist ideology. The decisions that the USA made where not always elaborated and in some cases they did more harm than good. Isolating the U.S.S.R from the world politics was
The British were unable to bomb the gas chambers and crematoria for sound technical reasons. From about the end of August 1944, the Americans could have bombed these installations. Senior air commanders were justified in their decision because numerous sorties against V-1 rocket sites, barges, petroleum oil, lubricant depots, roundhouses, airfields, power stations and other German military installations would have been sacrificed due to the amount of aircrafts required to bomb Auschwitz. Heavy prisoner casualties would have arisen and the uncertainty of success would have posed grave moral questions. Overall, the Joint Chief of Staff, the British Foreign Office, the Royal Air Force, the War Department and senior officials knew that their air power was imperfect and finite and thus acted
Air military strength became one of the most important elements of the war. Aerial bombing became increasingly popular among politicians and military leaders because it was not as messy as trench warfare. At the start of the war, Western Europe, especially France, lacked air power and, therefore, were more vulnerable to Germany’s air raids. Jets were introduced later into the war by the Germans. Many of these new aircrafts and jets were created in secrecy because the Treaty of Versailles, previously established, restricted the development of aircraft for war from the Germans.
Necessity of the bomb lies with the amount of people that would have been killed in a land invasion, although it was vastly exaggerated. If next generation were raised on the path the Japanese were taking, they would grow up to become monsters. it saved many American Soldiers lives by stopping a land invasion of Japan and prisoners of war were being abused. But the Atomic bomb used against Japan was not necessary to end the war considering the numbers of American lives saved was vastly exaggerated, They were sending their battleships and pilots out on suicide missions as they were desperate, there was a vengeance for pearl harbour and racism towards the Japanese people, many victims of the bomb were civilians that had nothing to do with the war, the only reason Japanese weren’t surrendering is because they didn’t want to give up there emperor to the “unconditional surrender” and to demonstrate their power over the world. The bombing of Hiroshima was necessary to end the war as it would save many lives as suggests in source A “should adopt a position that rather than throw to this bomb we should have sacrificed a million American and a quarter of a million British live”.
People’s emotions are heightened, and accidents happen. While it is clear that Israel did not want the United States to monitor its progress during the war, it seems pretty unlikely that Israel would risk a military confrontation with its American allies. As was noted earlier, it would be difficult to determine the exact identity of an isolated ship from the height of a flying jet aircraft. Maybe if the United States had notified Israel of the Liberty’s presence, or if there had been better communication between the Israeli pilots and the Americans onboard the vessel, this accident might have been
Armed Pilots 1 A LOOK AT THE ARGUMENT OF ARMING PILOTS A look at the argument of arming airline pilots D M Aeronautical Science for Management AGMT 202 Arming Pilots 2 ABSTRACT: This paper gives both sides to the argument about pilots carrying guns in the cockpits. While on the one hand the pilots would be able to protect themselves and their passengers if they carried guns, on the other hand there are those pilots that have never had gun training and do not care to handle guns. When they became pilots they did not take into consideration that they might have to become 'soldiers of the air' as well. Armed pilots 3 A look at the argument of arming airline pilots On the subject of airline safety, I feel that the consideration of guns being carried by pilots is astoundingly important. There has been much controversy as to whether pilots should be allowed to carry guns in the cockpit.
I agree that the enabling act was the most important factor in Hitler’s consolidation of power because the enabling act allowed Hitler to pass decrees without the president’s involvement it also made Hitler a legal dictator he has absolute power. Hitler was still not secure as he could not remove his opponents like the civil service who could undermine the Weimar republic also Hindenburg could still sack Hitler at anytime. For the next 4 years if Hitler wanted a new law he could just pass it and because of enabling act he didn’t need to consult the Reichstag. He intimidated the Reichstag into passing the enabling act by using the S.A. the Nazis won their largest even share of the votes and with support of the smaller nationalist parties Hitler had the majority of seats in the Reichstag one of the Nazis main aims. However the Reichstag fire plus emergency decrees was also another important factor in Hitler’s rise to power because they were able to take advantage of the situation when the Reichstag build burned down as he was able to then blame the communists for this a declared that it was the start of a communist uprising and that he needed to act and got Hindenburg to grant him the emergency decrees to help deal with this uprising.
Hindenburg couldn't oppose against the public's choice otherwise he would be going against the democratic ‘Weimar republic’ regulation of including the people’s views. Overall, Hitler’s popularity with the nation was one of the main reasons why he was appointed as chancellor. He promised things to a variation of people that not many other politicians had offered. Secondly, because of the propaganda that was responsible for the change of peoples view's of the
But should multipolarity be feared or should it be welcomed? If you are a part of the Realist school of thought then you would think that multipolary is a bad thing because as a realist, you believe that people are inherently selfish and will not do anything to help the fellow man. So it is also believed that countries will only work to better their interests, and with so many countries competing to become the new world super power, they could come into conflict. Most of these countries do have nuclear weapons so if conflict breaks out it would be very dangerous. Realist also believe that when the cold war the world was the safest that it could have been because the two super powers of the world the USA and the USSR were at logger heads which meant that all of the other countries in the world did not want anything to happen because these countries could destroy the world, so other countries watched what was happening between the USA and the USSR.
