this may sounds like an obveous statement, but it begins to hint at how empowering the right staments can be. As stated above, mabye the best example of this is the way hitler used his gift with words to rise to power. Hitler carfully crafted his words to most deeply effect the german people, that is, he took a problem that was effecting the entire country (nationwide poverty) and gave the
Kissinger: Realpolitik or War Criminal When discussing the United States foreign policy of the last century, there is one name that stands out from all others. Following a very unique journey into American politics, Henry Kissinger has been documented and debated by scholars and leaders worldwide. His tactics have brought upon him both praise and condemnation, being described by some as a hero and others as a war criminal. Kissinger has been involved in just about every major foreign policy prescription from Vietnam to the modern day crisis in Syria and his career has spanned an important time in American history. Love him or hate him, Henry Kissinger has been, and is continuing to be one of the most accomplished statesmen in American
That is what a lot of people asked themselves and still ask themselves until this day. To put it briefly, Fussel’s argument states that war was savage for invasion forces and killing civilians of Japan was the only way to avoid a Japanese invasion. In complete disregard to civilian lives, he believes the atomic bomb may have killed many but that it saved many more. Walzer believes that dropping the atomic bomb was inhumane and that war is all about the choices that you make. Walzer makes many valid points that forced me to change
Well, the Japanese had demonstrated near-fanatical resistance, fighting to almost the last man on Pacific islands, committing mass suicide of Saipan and unleashing kamikaze attacks at Okinawa. Firebombing had killed 100,000 in Tokyo with no discernible political effect, and the atomic bomb was the only way to jolt Japan’s leadership to surrender. With only two bombs ready, it was way too risky to “waste” one in a demonstration over an unpopulated area. If there was an invasion of Japan by the Allies, there would have been casualties on both sides that could easily have exceeded the toll at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The two targeted cities would have probably been firebombed anyway.
Atomic Domination The Race for the Atomic Bomb Kiran Raja 3/12/11 TB: 2 & 5 Ms. Smith and Ms Lafayette It was 8:15 A.M. on a chilly, unsuspecting morning (Fromm). Forty seven seconds later, 75,000 people died (Fromm). On August 6, 1945, the citizens of Hiroshima went on as usual, assuming they were safe from the fighting in their homely city. Little did they know their world would be altered eternally by the weapon that ruined their lives. With the ability to inspire fear and cause mass destruction, the atomic bomb still haunts the world today.
Many people will argue that the United States was justified in the dropping of the atom bomb. These people believe that dropping the atomic bomb was necessary for Japan's surrender and the end of World War II. Before the bombing, Japan refused to accept the unconditional surrender offered to them by the Potsdam Declaration, and in response to the Declaration Japan prepared every man, woman, and child to fight till death. There was no possibility that Japan would surrender. The pride of the Japanese was so great that it would not allow them to surrender and many of Japan's soldiers fought in a kamikaze style which they would go to the extreme of killing themselves in order to kill at least one enemy soldier.
Devastation, destruction, terror, and straight up fear, is what people would’ve seen if they visited Nagasaki or Hiroshima after the atomic bomb was dropped on those cities. The number of scientists who were involved in the development of the atomic bomb is unbelievable. The bombs were very unique objects, whether it was the size of the bomb, or even the amount of explosives inside. The names of the atomic bombs will forever be remembered for the chaos they brought to Japan. The decision to drop the bombs was one of the most difficult things President Truman had to do during his Presidency.
More recently, there was Hitler's genocidal six-million-death final solution to the Jewish problem, and the Communists' ten of millions of mass murders continue to this day. All this has been done without benefit of nuclear power. Many made comments came at the beginning of the atomic or nuclear age, and while the source and the judgment deserve respect, experience has shown that nuclear power in Western hands deterred a third world war and ultimately caused the collapse of the greatest
The people were divided. Both the American people and others around word were soon to find out the horrors of what lay beneath an ash cloud that hung hundreds of miles above the Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Even the scientists could not quite believe and could not imagine the effects that these two bombs would have, even now, more than 65 years later. News of the atomic bombing was greeted enthusiastically in the U.S.; a poll in Fortune magazine in late 1945 showed a significant minority of Americans wishing that more atomic bombs could have been dropped on Japan. The immediate death toll will never be known, but within four months, it was estimated that that the effects of both bombs had claimed around 166,000 people in Hiroshima, and 80,000 in Nagasaki.
