War and Death Research Paper

… War and Death

When considering the causes and outcomes of war, oftentimes it can be helpful to compare and contrast seemingly disparate cases, because this comparison can often reveal underlying processes, strategies, and assumptions that would have remained hidden otherwise. This is why, for example, one may consider the United States' more recent occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan alongside its actions in the Korean War; though these cases are separated by a substantial expanse of time, examining the causes behind these conflicts as well as the effects reveals that the conception of warfare as a means of statecraft has not changed substantially in the intervening time. This leads one inevitably to reconsider the state of South and North Korea's relationship today, because these two actors…. [read more]

War of the Worlds by HG Research Paper

… War of the Worlds by H.G.

Wells' "The War of the Worlds" is certainly a thought-provoking novel that addresses a series of divisive topics concerning society and the degree to which people believe they understand the concept of power. The writer provides readers with an account involving an unnamed narrator who generally feels confident concerning the power of humanity and of the British Empire in particular. While Wells has the ability to look at things from a more general point-of-view, the protagonist seems to be obsessed with introducing his own point-of-view concerning things that happened as Martians attacked Earth.

In order to gain a better understanding of the narrator's perspective concerning what happens in the novel, one must first understand why Wells chose this individual…. [read more]

War on Drugs for Roughly a Century Research Paper

… War on Drugs

For roughly a century, the United States government has been using their resources to police the substances known as drugs. In the last few decades the regulation of certain substances has resulted in an all-out "war" on drugs. Today in the United States, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 55% of federal prisoners and 21% of state-level prisoners are incarcerated on the basis of drug-related offenses which represents an incarcerated population greater than the population of Wyoming; the federal government is spending over twenty-two billion dollars alone on a so-called war that 76% of the population view as a failure (Head). The "war" has been so unpopular that President Obama stopped referring to the criminalization of people for drug charges as…. [read more]

"War of the Worlds" and "Independence Day" Movies Term Paper

… War of the Worlds' Influence on Independence Day

Two of the most popular science fiction movies over the course of the last five decades are the War of the Worlds, circa 1953, and the 1996 blockbuster, Independence Day. Although almost fifty years separates the two films, anyone who has seen both films becomes quite aware of the effect the War of the Worlds had on the creation of Independence Day. This paper will overview both movies, and then how the predecessor affected the latter.

The War of the Worlds Overview:

The War of the Worlds was an updated movie adaptation of H.G. Wells book of the same name. Heralded as one of the greatest science fiction film of the 1950s, the War of the Worlds…. [read more]

Day War and Its Influence Term Paper

… Day War and Its Influence on the Political an Social Culture in Israel

The 6-day war has had a significant impact on the lives Israelis. Israelis by and large have shown significant progress to modernize their political, economic and social fabric. Their efforts are second to none, particularly, in the education and technological sector. However, the war-mentality amongst its political elite and its military bureaucracy has overshadowed its achievements in almost all areas. This, for many, has been a source of discomfort. Many argue that the state is going in the wrong direction and needs to review its current policies, not only domestic and foreign policies, but also political, social and economic ones too. Colin (2008; pg 1) writes, "The state of Israel has been…. [read more]

War in Afghanistan Research Paper

… War in Afghanistan

Following the unprecedented 9 / 11 terrorist attacks on American soil, an atmosphere of fear and hysteria swept through the world. U.S. reprisal came in the form of fully blown war against terrorism as they assured the world that America would use all resources at its disposal to wage war on terror. Even as the demise of Osama bin Laden marked an important milestone in the U.S.-led war on terror, it appears as though U.S. Middle East foreign policy is going to take yet another tactical turn. After scaling down operations in Iraq in the first term, the Obama administration is at least rhetorically signaling that they will remove combat troops in 2014. By just about every measure, Afghanistan is still smoldering…. [read more]

War in Iraq Facts Term Paper

… War in Iraq

Facts: When a knowledgeable person hears the statement "the war in Iraq," most informed observers now see that there is a civil war in Iraq between the Sunni and Shiite Muslims. This is a bitter ethnic rivalry that has existed for centuries. The Kurds are another ethnic minority in this stew. It is also clear that there are numerous al Qaeda extremists in Iraq that have been recruited, trained, and sent to Iraq to kill Americans and conduct terrorist-style suicide bombing incidents that slaughter and maim scores of innocents.

This paper is focused on the American's five-year involvement, during which the true cost of the war approaches $2 trillion (health care for injured; interest on money borrowed to finance the war), over…. [read more]

War Term Paper

… The papers seem careful to not take a position directly contrary to the war effort, but with smugness that only can be found in east coast journalism, these two papers began debating who the most charismatic TV talking head had been on the opening night of armed conflict. A Washington Times article asked "TV talkers: Who did it best?" Another piece lit matches between the toes of democratic congressmen George Mitchell and Tom Foley, reminding them how difficult it would be in the days ahead to stay opposed to a popular president who is executing a popular war.

Color and character articles also began to occupy more pages. An article considered how to talk to children about the war when it had become such a…. [read more]

War's Effect Term Paper

… War's Effects

The traumas and deficiencies of war inflict unpredictable and disastrous effects on the family. Roles and responsibilities are often dramatically altered (Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture and Trauma 1996). Traumatized parents become less able to emotionally support and protect their children. The extreme disturbances parents go through in war times produce new traumas for their children. Together, they confront financial difficulties and generational conflict, which further place additional burdens on all family members. More bad news from the home country continues to traumatize the family, while other people in the same country now are perceived as threatening. Language and cultural differences and dislocations aggravate the situation. Children are instructed not to trust anyone. The guilt that develops from leaving the family hampers…. [read more]

War, Isolation, and English Essay

… War, Isolation, And English

English is often referred to as a "bastard" language due to the fact that it has so many sources. Though technically a Germanic language there is also a heavy Latinate influence that occurred over the millennia of English's spread, beginning in the time that Romans first set foot on the British Isles and continuing through direct and indirect influence from French, Spanish, and other romance languages; so much so that now less than half of the words in the modern English lexicon are actually etymologically rooted in the Germanic family (Marsh, 89). This kind of change is inevitable in any language where the speaking population is not in total isolation, and even then language may still adapt and develop as society…. [read more]

War in Defense Term Paper

… "as late as January 1951, the U.S. 8th Army was detailing all units in Korea that refugees be attacked with all available fire including bombing." (Williams)

As many as four hundred civilians at a time were killed in more than sixty reported incidents, and many more likely went unreported. This kind of lack of regard for the lives of the Korean people whom America was supposedly present to liberate could reasonably be interpreted as a general lack of regard for Asian-human life, and a serious threat to security as troops approach China. Likewise restraint was not communicated when, despite stated intentions to regain the status quo, American forces began invading what had previously been Northern Korean territory. The many lives lost by both Americans and…. [read more]

War on Drugs Research Paper

… As the power of the Colombian economy grew as a result of trading cocaine, the influence was not only experienced in the country's political system, but was also institutionalized virtually into the very system. Many poor people were enriching themselves by indulging in the cocaine business. A good example is Escobar, who was a dealer for cars which had been stolen. Once he got to know about the cocaine business, he was given responsibility to substitute marijuana with cocaine to the market. He later made contacts with influential cartels both in Peru and Bolivia and due to the expansion of the business; he became one of the most known successful cartels in the sector. Different meetings were arranged and organized with intentions of discussing how…. [read more]

War in Iraq: An Application Term Paper

… In Coser's view, whether or not conflict is a good thing is dependent upon which parties are in conflict and the reasons behind it. The motivations behind conflict are as important as the conflict itself, if not more important (Conflict, 2003).

This is applied to the war in Iraq by looking at the motivations behind Saddam Hussein's regime in comparison to the motivations behind what the Iraqi people do. Unfortunately for the people of Iraq, it appears that Hussein's motives are not good ones. He is not looking for a form of conflict that can cause the society to change and grow into something better. Rather, he is looking for the kind of conflict that only comes from one person telling a country what it…. [read more]

Analysis of Poets War Poetry Essay

… Gentle images such as the "flowers to love" and the glorious picture of the English countryside, including the "rivers" and the "suns of home," emphasize the peaceful tone. The sestet gives an sanguine tone of idyllic peace as well, with phrases such as "dreams as happy as her day," "laughter," and "an English heaven." The last line especially explains the gentle tone of the poem, with the phrase, "and gentleness, in hearts at peace."

On the contrary, Thomas Hardy's explained war not as pleasing as Brooke did. In his poem, "Drummer Hodge," Hardy narrates a story of an Englishman who died during the Boer war, in South Africa (Johnston, 1964). Thomas wrote this poem after completion of World wars. Similar to Brooke, he never participated…. [read more]

War on Terrorism Research Paper

… War on Terrorism:

Though it has been used since the beginning of recorded history, it is relatively hard to define terrorism. However, terrorism is a planned use of illegitimate violence to instill fear, targeted to intimidate government or societies in the hunt of goals that are generally political or religiously motivated by sub-national groups or undercover agents. Terrorism can also be defined as planned violence that is politically motivated aimed against non-battalion targets by national groups with an intention of causing psychological impacts on a large audience.

This kind of violence tends to function in small units and make the most use of home-based bombs, car bombs and other arsenals uncharacteristic of military workforce like in the case of the September 11, 2001 attack. As…. [read more]

War of Independence Thesis

… War of Independence

There are many reasons sited by countless historians and even the primary sources of the American War for Independence, that presume to encompass the causes of America's relatively early insurrection from the colonial rule of England. Among those are political, philosophical and even economically practical reasons. Many of these independent causal reasons are likely to ring true as partial factors associated with the phenomena known as the American Revolution, yet in reality the most encompassing reasons given include the lack of English policies and enforcement to keep the colonists in check. As years passed Americans who were fundamentally loyal to the crown still developed an unflagging sense of autonomy from it which eventually culminated into a revolution. The physical and political presence…. [read more]

War of the Worlds by HG Wells and Why War by Freud Essay

… War of the worlds by H.G. Wells and "Why War?" By Freud

Wells' book "The War of the Worlds" puts across an account describing a male protagonist going through a series of experiences involving Martians coming to Earth and vainly attempting to conquer the planet. The fact that they are unable to adapt proves to be disastrous for them, as they end up dying because of the multitude of elements that their bodies cannot withstand. In addition to providing an intriguing story, Wells was also concerned about criticizing people's tendency to attempt to conquer other cultures without actually understanding them. Imperialism is one of the main topics that "The War of the Worlds" is meant to stand as a metaphor for.

The fact that Wells…. [read more]

War on Blackness Essay

… War on Blackness

The war, as almost all wars are, was premised on economic reasons. For over a century, between1800 to beyond the 1900s, as the U.S.A. And Western countries entered the industrialized era and demanded more products from Latin America, the price of these products, correspondingly, swelled and the value of these exports almost quintupled from $344 billion in 1870 to $1.6 billion in 1912. This state of affairs was beneficial for the Mexican nation since it introduced a period of stability and contentment to the country. Politically, too, stronger measures were taken to impose central authority and to quell anarchic segments. The workers and the country were content.

Unfortunately, this closer union between the U.S.A. And western countries also had its negative ramification…. [read more]

War on Terror - Afghanistan Thesis

… War on Terror - Afghanistan

Introduction / Thesis

The Afghan people have been subjected to hostile takeovers and cultural disruptions for centuries, so the invasion by the Soviet Union in 1979 and the subsequent seizing of power by the Taliban are not new dynamics in this ancient land. The Taliban were driven out after 9/11 but are now resurgent; the Afghan border with Pakistan is where Taliban fighters get their training and their marching orders. The new U.S. president has signaled a shift away from Iraq and is reportedly sending 17,000 or more troops to Afghanistan. This paper posits that the U.S. cannot "win" the war in Afghanistan because there are simply too many young Muslim men around the world who already despise America, who…. [read more]

War and Occupation: The Effects Term Paper

… Since agriculture was still the major industry in Japan, the implication of the reform cannot be underestimated. In fact its implication extended far beyond the economic -- it served to change many ancient and severely entrenched attitudes in the Japanese society and even served to weaken the previously strong authority of family and community. (Roberts, p. 517) It also prompted continuing electoral support of a succession of conservative Japanese governments (who supported the reforms) by the rural community. In the meantime the trade union reforms were implemented by the Americans to balance the power of management. The workers in the Japanese cities embraced trade unionism enthusiastically and as early as May 1946, 2.7 million workers were members of trade unions. (Ibid.) MacCarthur's economic reform policy….

French and Indian War Cultural Term Paper

… [11: Anderson, Fred (2000). Crucible of War: The Seven Years' War and the Fate of Empire in British North America, 1754-1766. New York: Knopf]

The war is frequently seen as war that existed between France and Britain. However, Indian nations were also active participants of the War and hence, they had either sided with France or Britain. These tribes had played a dominant role in starting the war as well as the consequences of the war[footnoteRef:12]. To control the land, the fight was between the three nations and in late eighteenth century, it was not evident who would emerge as the dominant player. Iroquois, the five Indian tribes, had been successful at ensuring that French and British sides fight with one another in order to…. [read more]

Social Impact of Cold War Essay

… Innocent civilians are often at extreme risk in the battles for gathering information or in the battles run by remote. In an interesting way, it might also be seen that this kind of distance campaign strategy is like the way some see the U.S. As contributing to the near collapse of the world economy. The U.S.'s lax financial rules and regulations pulled in other countries and set them up for many of the challenges they now face -- many of which are bringing about social and cultural unrest. It clearly would not be difficult for terrorists or even other nations to see this as an extension of the type of attitude that America picked up when it did its victory dance after the melting of….

Consequences of World War II Term Paper

… Hiroshima/Nagasaki attacks were an indicator of the future plans of the United States government. These plans included expansion of America's economic and political influence. The results of WWII made it easier for the United States to achieve this goal since it brought an end to the supremacy of former powers such as Japan and Germany. Naive American public and the rest of the world was shocked to find the entire population of Hiroshima and Nagasaki destroyed by the country whose President had explicitly declared that, 'We Americans are not destroyers -- we are builders' [13]

Anglo Chinese War the Historical Discussion Research Paper

… ¶ … Anglo Chinese War

The historical discussion of the First Anglo-Chinese War (frequently referred to as the First Opium War) included a variety of competing perspectives even as the war was still being fought, because either side viewed the war in entirely different contexts.

In largely the same fashion, for years the historiography of the first Anglo-Chinese war developed independently in the East and West, and it was not until relatively recently, when Mao Zedong relaxed restrictions on access to Chinese documents and collaboration between historians, that this historiography has begun to include these differing perspectives, thus allowing a more complete picture of the war, as well as its causes and effects, to emerge. Coinciding with this increased access to Chinese primary documents was…. [read more]

Arab-Israeli Wars Essay

… Arab-Israeli Wars

Palestinian and Arab views on the Middle East conflicts and the Israeli views could not have been more in conflict over the last several decades. As many of the post second world war conflicts have had as cause, the colonial footprint of the "great powers," has left a severe mark on the Middle Eastern region, particularly because of the Israeli-Palestinian issues. The British Empire tried to create a region of stability between the Arabs and the Jews but failed severely as it became perceived as an intrusion in a region that was seeking its own identity and power.

As Peter Calvocoressi presents, the 1937 Peel Commission enforced a separation of those territories in three equal parts: an Arab, a Hebrew and a British…. [read more]

Sonar in WWI and WWII Research Paper

… That would be detrimental to the study, and would also be confusing. Larger cases make more sense for this study, and will be used to provide insight about, and examples of, how sonar made a difference in Naval operations.

Case One: World War I

World War I, or the First World War, was also called "The Great War" (Abbatiello, 2005). Centered in Europe, it was actually a global war that brought in a number of countries, including the United States and its Naval operations (Price, 2004). These Naval operations used sonar in order to find other ships and determine where to position themselves in order to have the best opportunities to protect their crews and stop enemy troops from gaining any ground. The main use…. [read more]

World War II Term Paper

… World War II or the Second World War turned out to be a war that was proceeding by 1939 and then finished up 1945. It had a lot to do with a huge mainstream of the world's states -- will involves all of the big powers -- ultimately starting two contrasting military associations: the Axis and the Allies. It was the most extensive war in history, with more than 100 million individuals that had served in any of the military units. In locations of "all out war," the main members put their entire financial, business, and scientific competences at the delivery of the war effort, eliminating the difference among civilian and military capitals. Marked by important proceedings linking the mass death of civilians, counting the…. [read more]

Vietnam War the Lessons Essay

… Presidential leadership

The Vietnam War was also a central focus in the presidential campaigns and also official agreements and commitments that were made by various presidents that ascended to power during the war period. Of greatest significance was the agreement by JF Kennedy to send the initial troops in 1961 also known as the U.S. Army Special Forces or the Green Berets. By 1962 Kenned has seen over 9,000 of the Special forces go into Vietnam to cushion the South Vietnam from the intimidation and propaganda by the Vietcong. This won him great admiration among the U.S. citizens and almost guaranteed him a second round with little opposition, until that vision was cut shot upon his assassination. Upon the assassination of President Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson…. [read more]
