Palestine and Israel Our views of world conflicts such as war are influenced by the part of the world in which we live. When exploring media coverage of discord, it is important to think about where the author is from and how it has influenced the way he/she has portrayed disharmony. Reports on a world conflict can express extremely different views depending on the social values and understandings of the writers. One must read articles that address the issue of war with cultural relativism by taking into account the local values and historical experiences of the writer. By neglecting this approach, a reader may be persuaded to believe biased and often untrue facts.
Adams, Adams attempts to shed light on these evils to his audience in order to be provocative. His objective is to make readers question their prejudgment that World War Two really was so wondrous and phenomenal and to show the negative and harmful aspects of the war in a greater light. Although most Americans are nostalgic of this war, they must not veer away from understanding all that goes into a war. That being said, Adams takes this to a whole new level. He exaggerates the evils and tends to look past some of the positive endeavors that took place.
Henry excites fear by stating he is so passionately ready to sacrifice for his country. This play towards pathos, or appealing to the audience’s emotions, is an effective way of trying to convince the House to go to war against Britain. This pathos combined with the logic of Henry’s speech, makes for a convincing argument. Logically taking the house step by step from stating that because he has an outlook on their situation, he should express it to them, to stating his argument before the House, to saying that lacking freedom is worse then death, then taking it full circle pronouncing he would prefer to be “give[n] death” then to have his freedom taken away by the British.
Their examination of the role the United States may have played in creating conditions that make terrorist acts more likely amounts to a justification of the acts themselves. There is an emotional tyranny at play here, and its effect is to obstruct processes of understanding that alone will aid us in our ongoing debate over how to come to terms with terrorism. What do I mean by tyranny? In the first instance, we are being told that feelings alone are appropriate now. It is too early, indeed, it is tasteless, to begin to sort through our role in the complex factors that brought these people to their heinous acts.
The crowd's feelings are changed greatly because of Antony's moving speech. Antony employs diction and repetition tactfully to implore the audience to Brutus' dark agenda. Rhetorical questions are another powerful tool used by Brutus to strain the wrong that has occurred in Rome and its necessary correction, using their ethics. Since this is not a written expression to the people and a speech directly to the people, Antony also uses alliteration heavily. Brutus' tone in his speech addressing Caesar's passing to the public is described as rational; Antony recognizes this weakness and uses the powerful leverage of passion to sway the audience in his favor.
Truman claimed towards the end of his speech to congress “Should we fail to aid Greece and Turkey in this fateful hour, the effect will be far reaching to the West as well as to the East.” The Truman Doctrine’s true effect was the persuasion of the public to adopt the new foreign policy of “aiding the victims of totalitarianism” on more than just one occasion but as a habit. The other effect of it was creating an ideological enemy in the eyes of the general public, and “that the chief ideological enemy could rise up and inspire fear in many guises; and that the United States would always have to be prepared to find and defeat new foes” (Chernus). This opened Pandora’s box to U.S. foreign involvement, giving the nation the impression that if we do not take action in these issues otherwise unrelated to the United States there
Yes something needs to be done about the threat, but those who believe that our men and women don’t belong over there are faced with challenge of stating exactly what we SHOULD do. The hardest part of having an opinion is backing it up, especially so in situations such as these. Believers of the war with Iraq say that a mad man such as Saddam must be taken out of power, because he has the potential of becoming another Hitler. That being said, they also believe that any force necessary should be taken to ensure the safety of our country against such individuals. So yet another controversy develops among the present one of the ensuing conflict (phew!).
Chambers’s Cyclopedia defines necessary as “that which cannot but be, or cannot be otherwise”. Jefferson described the Revolution as “necessary “, making the people feel as if this was something that couldn’t be avoided; the people had no other choice but to agree to a Revolution against England. This powerful word style persuaded the people into agreeing. Thomas Jefferson also uses the stylistic and artistic method of personification in his document, The Declaration of Independence. The use of personification makes the reader feel as if what they are reading directly impacts their personal life.
With so much at stake and so mush to lose it is often a wonder how governments, which are seldom trusted anyway, convince their citizens to support their various war efforts. With closer speculation it becomes quite clear how this is accomplished: the media. Whether print, radio, or television the media gives the public a sense of getting the real story. With this in mind it is much easier to persuade citizens that wars are necessary. Medias role in the politics of war is an often debated topic by those who believe the role is minimal and those who believe that media plays the utmost importance.
In exchange for better protection of the citizens, the citizens must be willing to also give up or abridge certain rights, the problem being the United States founded on freedom. Another issue is h... ... middle of paper ... ...made to others that oppose the United States. It is certain that changes need to be made in the areas of domestic policy, foreign policy, and the military. However, the answer to terrorism is not an easy one. The United States has already created a catch 22 situation with the middle east by its obsessive intrusion into the affairs of the middle east which is the main reason that terrorism has rose to what it has today.
