  • President Clinton And Other Democrats

    The debate whether America should have a war to Iraq lasted for about 2 years. As far as I am concerned, however, I agree that America should not have a war to Iraq. The first argument that can be presented to develop my position is that the immediate war to Iraq costs for the U.S. will come to about 200 billion, giving the American people heavy economical burden. A good example may be found in many documents and statistics. So far, Congress appropriated approximately&56 billion in April 2003; a...

  • Being America
    354 words
    I think America was wrong in entering World War One, and I'll tell ya why. We (the United States as a whole) were being America centric... just trying to show that we have a bigger (missile) than all the other countries. If that wasn't the case, then we were just being the world's police by choosing the side we thought was just and suppressing the other; and if we thought we needed to retaliate for American deaths, we were wrong. America was not doing a good job of being neutral. It was trading ...
  • War On Britain In 1812

The spark of the Great War was the assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, and his wife by a Serbian nationalist on the morning of ...
