A democratic government is meant to be indirectly run by the people, thus it is essential for their views to be considered. However, Johnson completely disregarded their opinions, and strove in vain to accomplish his own objectives.

The American people, however, would rather stay of war, and lose their right to the seas. Both sides became increasingly angry with the American position of neutrality. England publicly declared, “Anyone who talked of peace was a friend of Germany.” This created only hostility towards the British, but continued diplomacy with Germany.

Wilson thought that if the Americans weren’t going to stand up for their rights to the seas, that this would be the way to reduce the ...
Everyone has questions of morality and normal heroes would not show the questions of morality. Tim O’Brien wrote his novel with non-traditional war heroes to show many things about war that the reader did not know about.

French Foreign Policy and the Coming of War During this critical time not much attention was turned to France, as the entire spotlight was on Chamberlain’s policy of appeasement and Hitler’s aims. The Orthodox view of France was described as of a deeply divided and politically unstable country, which was obsessed with security and defense. France was definitely not ready for war, and therefore eagerly agreed to the policy of appeasement. It preferred negotiating with Germany at this stage rather than fighting it. The other reason for why France was standing up behind Britain so much and tried to never argue with it was because France was scared of losing British support if war with Germany would arise.

Since then he has written numerous novels tied to the conflict, most notably in his work “The Things They Carried” which was published in 1990 several years after his tour in Vietnam. Tim O’Brien’s “The Things They Carried” uses point of view, metaphor, and characters to demonstrate how his service in Vietnam influenced his life from that point forward. Through fluctuating point of view in “The Things They Carried,” O’Brien allows the readers to witness the physical, emotional, and spiritual experiences and burdens of war from different perspectives.
