Fisher proposes valuable points about the possible outcome of this trial if Bales was to be set free by the American court system. I believe this complication could be bypassed by the US if they would simply allow Afghanistan to try SSG Bales for the crime he committed on their own soil. Allowing Bales the right to be tried in America was the first mistake made by our nation’s justice system. According to Fisher, Bales would be needed to “grab the pooper scooper to our nation’s justice and “bail” us out of this one.” Our nation has allowed this voluntarily, jeopardizing their own reputation for the rights of a criminal. Removing Bales from Afghanistan to be tried in the US has provoked worldwide controversies between countries in the Middle East against the US.
+Basic Critical Thinking Individual Work Week 3: Teamwork Questions for Analysis 1. Describe the main arguments, reasons, and evidence that support the perspective of Historian A. Answer-the main arguments in Historian A the atomic bombing on Japan was an unjustified way to end the war. It is argued by the United States that by them dropping the bombs upon Japan that they not only shortened the war but saved many of lives in the process. While others like a few historians these are people who keep documentation on important events throughout the world’s history. They argue that that in no way that the United States was in the right to drop the atomic bombs onto Japan for any reason at all.
With that in mind, America also had missiles in Turkey targeting the Soviet Union. In The fog of war it says “We (America) lucked out from not having a nuclear war”. In the interview it says “we went eyeball to eyeball and they blinked”, referring to the friction between the United States and the Soviet Union. JFK strongly tried to keep America out of war with the Soviet Union. Kennedy asked how many American causality’s there would be if one of the Soviet Union’s missiles would go off in the United States.
Once the US troops took over Iraq they reinstated the prison and this time they held Iraqi rebels and terrorists. After some time media attention turned to the Abu Ghraib prison once again. It was found that pictures had been sent to the media to show the Iraqi detainees being tortured by the US army personnel. There was an international outcry and the soldiers involved in the abuse were investigated and court-martialled. Public opinion suggests the US army had been brutal toward the prisoners and were abusing their power rather than doing their job as being normal soldiers.
Kennan predicted the types of laws the Soviet would try to make to defeat the U.S. and explained why we should accept them. Keenan believed that we did not have to go to war to put a stop to the Soviet Union, although this letter leads to the Cold War. Kennan felt the Union would eventually collapse on their own because they were built on weak principles like isolationism and fear. Kennan in all was trying to make the United States stand up for what we knew was right, if the U.S got stronger in political and economic influences we could stop communism and the Soviet Union. The NSC-68 was way more aggressive than the Long Telegram instead of discussion; the NSC-68 was more direct.
The Decision to Drop the Atomic Bomb Good and Bad One of the major questions regarding the study of World War II is whether or not the United States was justified in dropping the Atomic Bomb on Imperial Japan at the end of the War. Crimes against humanity, as never witnessed before, and hopefully to never be seen again, occurred during the course of World War II. The security of our nation and of other Allied nations was severely threatened, not only by the Germans, but also by the Japanese. The Japanese were a strong people willing to fight until it was no longer possible. It may even be said that they were suicidal, with their kamikaze pilots and no real hope of defeating the Allied nations.
Though this treat he was able to have his way at the Yalta conference. Truman thought of America as the World’s atomic power and was assured by Cabinet advisers; America would reign supreme in the arms race. However Joseph Stalin was also attempting to build Russia’s power in this arms race too. Truman began to get tough on Russia in 1946 when there were strong protests in the Iran against Russian Troops. The Soviets had denied sharing control of the Turkish Straits as they had claimed they would not have.
If USA didn’t drop the bombs, then it will give the USSR the chance to advance to china and influence those countries to Communism, therefore resulting in possibly sharing the occupation of Japan WITH USA after the war. Besides, it would suggest that the USA was afraid to use it. The US didn’t like that idea as the Americans and the office of Strategic services believed that Stalin have other plots and intentions, such as capturing the land’s resources and land. According to James Byrnes (Truman’s personal advisor), he made a comment in 1945, stating that he is worried and fretful about Russia’s spreading influence in eastern Europe. He also said that it will be impossible to persuade Russia to remove her troops from Poland and China and the island of Sakhalin unless they are shocked and impressed by American military strength.
In fact, the debates behind using the atomic bombs against Japan began even before the decision was made. Many of the scientists such as Leo Szilard and Dr. James Franck, who made great contributions towards the creation of the bomb, campaigned against its use. President Truman said “We have used it in order to shorten the agony of war, in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Amercicans”. It is completely understandable that President Truman’s aim was always to save the lives as many American people, but was it necessary to do it by dropping the atomic bombs on Japan? And was the reason behind the decision to drop the two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki purely to ‘save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans’?
Ron Howard, the director, and Akiva Goldsman also added some espionage element into the movie. This is shown in the movie when the government forces (Willian Parcher) are trying to make use of Nash's brains to thwart soviet plot despite his mental illness. The intended message that the movie is trying to convey to the audience is about John Nash's journey in achieving sanity and the unconditional love between him and Alicia throughout his battle with schizophrenia. The production team omit to tell other parts of Nash's life so that it would not diverge the audience's attention from the key message of the movie which was about Nash's journey in achieving sanity. Several
