Bombing of Dresdon annon Fire Storm On February 13-14, 1945 the British Royal Air Force gave the final clearance to commence what would later become known as one of the greatest atrocities that has ever been commited against a civilian population.

- Death Penalty - 1,462 words
Death Penalty The death penalty is a major issue that brings up a lot of arguments in our society. The most important question concerning the death penalty is whether it should be abolished or not. I think that the death penalty is the ultimate denial of human rights. It violates the right to life as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is the ultimate cruel, inhuman, and degrading punishment. Race, social and economic status, location of crime, and pure chance may be deciding factors in death sentencing. In addition, prosecutors seek the death penalty far more frequently when the victim of the homicide is white than when the victim is black. The actual cost of an exec ...

- Monroe Doctrine - 1,566 words
Monroe Doctrine The Monroe Doctrine can be considered as the United States first major declaration to the world as a fairly new nation. The Monroe Doctrine was a statement of United States policy on the activity and rights of powers in the Western Hemisphere during the early to mid 1800s. The doctrine established the United States position in the major world affairs of the time.

- Navy Ncdu Teams - 1,603 words
Navy Ncdu Teams The Teams On the beach invasions of Normandy, one of the marines commented, "Jesus, we don't even have control of the beach yet and already the tourist are here!". This is the normal response that the men of UDT get, during WWII in the pacific campaign. They would paint themselves with steaks of blue and white. They were the first ones on the beach and the last ones to leave. They carried no weapons except for a combat knife used for cutting, and crimping the fuses of their explosives. Some say that you would have to be "half nuts and half fish" to join the UDT. But, besides being courageous and saving the lives of many a thankful marine(although they will not admit it) the U ...

- The Role Of Technology - 1,065 words
The Role of Technology in World War I Technology made a huge impact in the fighting of World War I. Blimps dropped bombs, airplanes with propellers in the back radioed gun positions, aces battled in their biplanes, ground troops threw and shot grenades at each other, and heavy machine guns snapped off bullets at each other making a big difference in the course of the war. These tools of war can be divided into two major categories: air advances and ground improvements. Airplanes were first used in 1911 in a war in Libya, and also in the Mexican revolution. There wasnt much air bombardment in these wars; the planes were used for reconnaissance missions.1 By 1914, however, this technology was ...
