High politics and popular culture

High politics and popular culture



Question 1

As the empire moved through the new nation, the Americans continued to immortalize the lost west since they became part of the nation that is not frightened by the growing technologies through various war weapons being made.

The international, domestic politics managed to shift the cold war to more of fights regarding ideas and technology. Government like the soviet, Americans and the westerns began to change through completion through by molding the cold war culture to be a competition that is health transforming the nations economically and physically. The new modern films that are produced by the American and the west through the shift to the cold war style fight system than the one that existed before when only what they could think of was to fight. The nations were able to fend for they in the making up for their decision regarding products without depending on the other oversee market. The oversee market was the one that majorly introduced a destructive cold war before the general domestication of politics. These resulted in indulging in other activities that enhanced the cultural conflict between the nations.

Question 3

The Vietnam War was perpetuated to be a military that was battled mainly in the Southeast Asia. The reasons for the United States involvement in the Vietnam war with the Southeast Asia. For the states, the reason was due to the fact it had a containment policy where communism was a concern. The containment was a foreign policy strategy that was being followed during the cold war periods. Therefore, the adherence to the containment policy and the Domino theory made the United States intervene in the Vietnam War. Moreover, the states wanted to prevent the spread of communism into Southeast Asia. The Americans developed the domino theory with the view that communist taking the South Vietnam would possibly cause the non-communist governmental in the Southeast Asia to fall under communist governments and therefore, like a giant of dominoes, they wanted to prevent the case from taking place through whatever means. The war took place in two phases, and that is the cold war that existed for long and the actual war involving the states army taking the war to the front to prevent the communist from reach southeast Vietnam. The cold war began with the states preventing the soviet from refueling process, and luckily they managed to do so, and this was unpleasing to the officials which led to the demotion of Armstrong.

The war was internationalized because the communist regime had been spreading to many parts of the nation expanding their territorial grounds. The war spread because many countries such as the Americans were not happy with the spread of communism through the Soviet government. The consequences of the war very devastating in both parties since it majorly led to the death of the soldiers and other innocent people in the society. Therefore, just like any other war, there has to be dead people and injured. Moreover, the war declined the economy of the Americans and the global community because they invested in the war through purchasing of high military equipment for the operation. Therefore, the ending of the war goes along with the funds and human resources that were involved in the planning of the entire operation. The main reason for the America diplomacy failing was because, in the entire history, the Vietnam War was the longest ever and were in very hostile places that would only favor the natives. Moreover, the guerilla tactical warfare war already in Southeast Asia and the communist were using the tactic. Therefore, there was a possibility of them using the same fighting style. Additionally, there could be a spy in the states leaking the information about the soldiers to the communists.
