Collective security had a better response towards aggression rather than appeasement. This is because a lot more European countries didn’t approve of the decision made during the Munich Conference. Winston Churchill was one person who strong didn’t approve with this decision. He was a British politician who thought, “keeping peace depends on holding back the aggressor” (Document 6). Churchill believed that in order to guarantee the security of Czechoslovakia, Europe should have held Germany back and Britain and France should have worked together as an alliance.
The British treated Americans indifferently when they were actually the same country. Although the economy and diplomatic relations were significantly changed, the most important factor contributing was the political system. The colonies were not allowed to let their own economy flourish. The British set laws such as the Navigation Acts and rejected Mercantilism to restrict the American economy and help the
It exercised to prevent the ruler’s attempt to corrupt and oppress people. So Britain’s efforts to tight government control and raise revenues convinced Americans that real Whigs reasoning really applied to their circumstances. They thought that all of the taxes they were getting would destroy their
This meant that having the in state building showed that the US wanted to be involved in the Communism situation and Vietnam was the closest place to be. Eisenhower made Vietnam to be a victim of the Cold War as the Cold War had increased the worries about communism. The Geneva Accords had stated that no foreign troops or alliances were allowed in Vietnam the US defied this by making alliances with France and attempted to make alliances with Britain, but they didn’t want to get involved in the war. This could suggest that the war was Eisenhower’s because if he had signed the Geneva Accords then Vietnam wouldn’t have split and there would have been no war. Once
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.
Whereas the French wanted a revolution to be freed from the monarchs that were implementing things in France. Due to the common reasons why the French and Americans were persisting into having a revolution made it seem like these revolutions were very similar. Unfortunately, there is some indifference towards both of the revolutions.
Isolationism , the made idea in the early 1920’s was changed after the course of World War 2, and urge to engage in world affairs made America the leading power in the world. America was beginning to get through World War 1 and trying to establish better relations with world powers but their differences led America into changing its foreign policies politically. Although most of the countries joined the League of Nations, America had from the start opposed it. As president Harding says in a speech at Des Moines, Iowa on October 1920 that he completely opposes America Joining the League because it is against the constitution and what Americans had fought for. Isolationism is still the idea in Washington.
Americans felt that since they had no representation in Parliament, and that there were decisions being made for them without proper representation, that they were slaves to the forceful word of the British crown. Even some countrymen in Great Britain felt that the Americans were being treated unfairly. Lord Camden believed that Americans were not being given their natural born rights as men. “My position is this – I repeat it – I will maintain it to my last hour, - taxation and representation are inseparable: - this position is founded on the laws of nature,” (pg.95, Major Problems in the Era of the American Revolution, Brown). It seems there was a miscommunication, because Britain was treating the Americans different from other British and also wanted to keep major control in anyway, like restricting trade from any other country (like France and Spain).
France had a burning desire for revenge on the British after their loss at the French Indian war back in 1754. and America wanted France to help them in the war. But France didn't want to step in because they were afraid that their participation would result in another expensive war with the British. So France said “ we will help only if you show us that you have a real chance of winning this war.” the victory at Saratoga convinced France to step in and donate a ton of supplies and men. This helped to even the playing field against the
American citizens and politicians alike began calling the conflict the “second war of independence.” The political standpoint of entering the war was to preserve the rights of sailors and would-be American immigrants from British impressments. The US also wanted to prove that big brother Britain could not tell them who they could and could not trade with anymore (meaning France). This was an easy pill for the American public to swallow because of continued tensions with Britain after the Revolution and the rise of the anti-Britain, Democratic-Republican Administration and
