Aiming to win back support from the American’s, as many people did not support the Vietnam war due to the bad media that was publicised. This was the first War to be so publicised and it shocked many of the people back home. This lead to Anti-War protest, which became one of the US governments aims to stop. However they still stuck to the aim to try and contain Vietnam from the spread of communism and supporting the SV defeat the VC in nearby country Cambodia. On the other side the aims of the NV government and their terrorist organisation the VC did not alter as they still aimed to persuade the SV government to vote for Vietnam to become a communist country.
Society dos not want to be lied to, all they want is the true facts and actual reason behind the wars we send our soldiers into. Like in George Orwell’s, 1984, there is a war going on between Oceania and Eurasia, it is later depicted that it is between Oceania and Eastasia. Nobody in Oceania knows who they are actually fighting. This enhances the idea that the government in society today doesn’t want to give the real reason why they go to war with another country. This disconnection between the government and society shouldn’t be happening because we should know why we have to send our loved ones out to another country to fight for a “cause” that the government thinks is right.
The second poem “Shine, Perishing Republic” by Robinson Jeffers mostly resembles my attitude towards America right now. I do believe that the government is trying to do anything possible to gain more power even if it means ruining or destroying the environment and society. I feel like the government pretends to actually care about our well-being but we're brainwashed to actually think that. I really don't understand how people can actually do whatever it is they want to do even if it isn't right just to make themselves happy and to have a good time. This era is actually really messed up, it seems like there isn't any structure with our society that everyone is just going with the flow of what's “in”.
Although it involved many positive aspects, it was strongly rejected by America, both the government and the citizens. The Congress found it to be an attachment of war for our countries, spend more money and slowly destroy our economy, and it pulled us into European affairs. This war without country seemed at that time very dim. Coming out of a war and feeling unstoppable, maybe Wilson was only wise enough to see that war is not something to be used unless absolutely needed. To protect the right of mankind, and lives of American and allied lives.
The launching of the Great Experiment September 9, 2013 Establishing a durable Government in the 18th Century was very difficult because there was no way to please all of the country which all had different opinions. Americans have failed before with the Articles of Confederation because it did not meet the needs of our nation. There remained disputes between the Americans which led to the division of government; one remained for the American people and the other for the thirteen colonies belonging to Great Britain. The Constitution was also created to test Americans and to see if they could govern themselves without being watched by someone. The American people were in need of a government that would make everyone happy and satisfied.
With the Spanish American War happening because of the imperialism, this brought many people in America against the idea. With their loved ones going off to fight in a war that they should not be fighting in and that most believed America should never have got involved in, in the first place. Wars were just a start in the imperialism
President Bush had not trusted Saddam Hussein and he didn’t want rest of America to either. President George W. Bush had gathered enough “evidence” against Iraq and Saddam Hussein that America had been deceived by these false statements and they were too terrified for their own safety that they had decided to allow president Bush go to war with
However it would have had a tremendous and awful impact on the United States society as it did represent the war as evil and criminal. The US Army always denied that the bombs they let off never hit civilian casualties; they stated that there was not many of them. The journalist's reports broadened, which was still furthering the credibility gap'. This is the state or condition of being dissimilar or unlike between the American military and government and what the American people had confidence in. The broader the gap is, not as much the people will believe.
Government Shutdown The government shutdown was something that I was angry about, but I could not really pinpoint why. I had recently never heard of a government shutdown and I really did not know the ramifications of an issue of this magnitude. There were so many thoughts going through my head, but I did step back and realize that those ideas were probably ludicrous at best. I thought that the government would not exist anymore for the time being and that really got under my skin. After a personal analysis I realized that I was upset because I felt as though there was absolutely no reason for the government to be shutdown.
The press didn’t want to show what people really went through, they only focused on the heroes and volunteers of the aftermath. This piece tells the story of how desperate the victims of 9/11 were. The audience the author wants to relate to is American citizens. He targeted people that want to know the real truth. He didn’t want to hide one of the most shocking pictures in history.
