Bush’s intentions with the speech is to calm the country, and be their president. Since Bush is the president, he already has a big ethos. However, he also points out in the speech, to underscores his ethos even more, that he has control over the situation, and that America does not need to be worry about theirs safety even though what just happened a few hours ago. He says:” Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans. Our military is powerful, and it is prepared.” He underscores that America is strong and powerful and that they are not afraid of the future because they can and will handle it.
However, the fact that in source B, when he says that the death of American soldiers is unacceptable, also fits with the economic and military adviser aid as he was not willing to use military force to uphold their independence even though in source A, he is very devout to protect their independence at all costs, which may have included military force. In addition, another main difference in the two sources is that source B states that Kennedy would have been willing to abandon Eisenhower’s Domino Theory and also his continuing aid to South Vietnam. Whereas source A shows that Kennedy was planning to continue his commitment and not let the Domino Theory occur. The similarities between the sources include the main idea of the Domino Theory as it suggests that their main reason for an increasing commitment to the country is the fear that the theory will come true and cause the widespread of Communism. This is shown in source A as he focuses directly on peace and maintaining independence instead of any other interests.
The Cuban Missile Crisis was a defining moment in human history. It pitted two strong and very idealistic civilizations against one another in a situation where the outcome could have lasting and devastating effects on the entire world. The almost unthinkable consequences of a direct military confrontation between the two great nuclear states of the world were to be avoided. The decisions made by President John F. Kennedy during this crisis would define him, his administration, and his country. The President had no closer ally and no more trusted confidant than his brother, U. S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.
Essay #3 Within the Logevall’s essay “Choosing War” he focuses on the Americanization of the Vietnam War. It shows how Johnson was able to make many of the decisions that he did because he had the support of many Americans. American’s felt that it was necessary to follow the events that took place over in Vietnam. “Americans, to the extent that they followed developments in Vietnam, tended to support the effort there, in large measure because they took candidate-for-president Johnson at his word when he said the nation’s commitment would stay at about its current level and that South Vietnamese boys would have to fight their own war.” (Logevall, 185) He also makes it clear that many countries opposed the American involvement in Vietnam whereas many American critics supported the Johnson administration’s escalation and no one questioned the need to contain communist threat in Vietnam. Johnson’s administration tried very hard to keep distain for his policies at bay.

I don’t believe he was ever violent with his war protests. The only thing in my opinion that could have been argued that John Lennon was endangering was the image of the government which made them feel threatened. I feel that John Lennon did a very good job of how he handled his opposition and I don’t believe he could have gone about it another way while staying peaceful. In my opinion I think the government handled the John Lennon situation very poorly, John only demonstrated peaceful protest, and he never harmed anyone. The government tried to have John Lennon deported on a charge that they dug up from his past in his country.

Furthermore military advisors were confident so consequently Johnson was confident, as he trusted their expertise.

During the Harry Truman presidency there were many impacts on the American and Soviet relations because of the atomic weapons, the Marshall Plan or the Berlin Blockade. The United States pushed the Soviet empire to its knees and won the Cold War. No, the USSR collapsed of its own rotting weight, and Japan won the Cold War. Option three: A brilliant Kremlin leader, besieged at home and long misunderstood abroad, perceived the irrelevance of superpower military competition to the overarching new challenges of global security and engineered a strategic retreat toward sanity in East-West relations. The deterioration of relations within the Grand Alliance led to the undeclared conflict known as the Cold War.
The Soviet decision to put up the Berlin Wall after the Second World War, was a compromise for both the East and the West of Berlin, with the impact on East Berliners one of cruelty and horror. The Cold War began with the tension between the two great superpowers, the Unites States and the Soviet Union. This tension was feared by many to cause another world war that was seen as lethal, due to the nuclear weapons newly created by the USA. The harsh and destructive realities of the wall lead to people’s desire to escape, bringing global attention to the cruelty that occurred.
