Iran and North Korea: The Nuclear 'Axis of Resistance'

Iran and North Korea: The Nuclear 'Axis of Resistance' | Warfare Harry Truman | Scoop.it
A new U.S. intelligence report warns North Korea could resume exporting nuclear technology and material. That could spell trouble for U.S. efforts to keep Iran from getting the bomb.
Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

This article talks about how Iran is trading uranium with countries like North Korea. Iran's trade with North Korea could cause them to have enough uranium to make nuclear bombs that could be used against U.S. or other countries. I thought this article was interesting because if counties like North Korea get enough uranium to make bombs it would cause the world to go in to war with each other. I liked this article because it gives you info on current nuclear activates. This relates to my topic because it talks about nuclear warfare and in 1945 when we bombed japan we killed millions of lives. We destroyed thousands of buildings and land. If we were to go into nuclear warfare again with todays technology it would be devastating.

Atomic Bomb one page report

Atomic Bomb one page report | Warfare Harry Truman | Scoop.it
Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

This document is easy to read and is simple and to the point. It is a report about the bombing of japan. It says that if japan didn’t surrender they would use the atom bomb to force japan to surrender. The second bomb was not met for Nagasaki it was for Kokur but due to weather they dropped it on Nagasaki instead. This document also talks about the planes that dropped the bomb and how they got their name. I thought it was good and if it saved American lives than it was worth it to me because every country killed innocent citizens to save the life’s of there own. We also gave japan a chance to surrender but japans ambassador refused to declare peace with the United Nations. We also gave japan three days to surrender after the first bomb to surrender and when they didn’t we dropped the second bomb on japan.

Harry S. Truman Letter about Atomic Bomb

Harry S. Truman Letter about Atomic Bomb | Warfare Harry Truman | Scoop.it
Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

This website is a website about atomic bombs and there impact on the U.S. and other countries. This link is a letter sent from Harry s. Truman in response to a letter he got on august 5 1963 from woman talking about if he had any regrets from bombing japan. Truman express that he did what he thought was right at the time and he would do it again if he had to. Truman believed that he killed millions of lives in japan to save many years of economic depression and millions of more Americans lives. He also had pressure to drop the bombs by the citizens and congress to bomb japan for bombing Pearl Harbor 1n 1941. I enjoyed this letter because it allows you to see that Truman stands by his decision about dropping a bomb on japan. This letter is a primary source because it's a letter written by Harry Truman himself to a woman making it a primary source.

The Electronic Passport to Harry Truman

Harry Truman was required a make a very important decision shortly after he became president. Learn about Truman's decision to drop two atamic bombs on Japan and the implications of that decision in the Electronic Passport at www.mrdowling.com.
Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

I enjoyed this document because it was a great document that gives you information about Truman's reasons for making his decision. This document is about president harry s. Truman. Truman became president when FDR died and the us was still in World War II fighting Europe/ wanting revenge on japan for bombing Pearl Harbor. Truman’s had to decide if he should end the war with japan by dropping a bomb on them. Truman was struggling because many people wanted revenge on japan so they didn’t care if millions died to prevent millions of American life’s from dying but there were many Americans that didn’t want him to bomb japan because they will be killing millions of there life’s. I thought it was a great document to look at his struggles and reasons for the bombing before he bombed them.

2 - 12 sentance paragraph

2- 12 paragrah

 

Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

Harry s. Truman was the vice-president to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s forth term. Truman soon would become the president of the United States of America when FDR died in office in 1945. Truman had no time to waste because just two weeks into his presidency he had to decide if he should bomb japan with an atomic bomb. Truman wanted to end the war but he also didn’t want to kill millions of innocent lives in the process. He was Torne in half whether or not he wanted to bomb japan. There were people that said yes to get revenge on japan for bombing Pearl Harbor. There was also Americans that didn’t want to kill any more lives that were necessary because the war already killed so many lives. Truman waited a few weeks hoping that japan would surrender to the United Nations. When president Truman was informed that Japan’s ambassador refused to agree with the peace treaty he turned to Russia for assistance. Russia declares war on japan before president Truman could talk to Russia’s government. Now Truman had to make his decision because there was no more time to stall. Truman’s advisers then sent a letter to japan saying to the citizens that they need to leave the city and that they have all the worlds forces against japan.

 

Americans were still upset with japan from when they bombed pearl harbor in 1941 causing the u.s. to enter the war and killing many soldiers in the process. In august 1945 we bombed japan killing millions of Koran lives. One bomb was dropped by plane Enola Gay hoping that japan would surrender. After three days and no word from japan we dropped another bomb. Japan surrender shortly after dropping the second bomb. In the sixties a women wrote the aging harry Truman and asked him if he had any regrets. He replied be saying he didn’t have any regrets about bombing japan and if he had to make the decagon again he would because he stands by what he decide in 1945. Harry s Truman is remembered as the president from the bombings even though the atomic bombs that were dropped happened in his first year of president.

Israel issues warning to Iran over nuclear bomb report

Israel issues warning to Iran over nuclear bomb report | Warfare Harry Truman | Scoop.it
The Obama administration is asking Congress to hold off on enacting new sanctions against Iran.
Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

This document is about how Iran has enough uranium to build nuclear bombs. Nuclear bombs are a treat because Iran could use them on the U.S. flatting in and killing millions of innocent American lives. I thought this relates to my topic because we bombed japan and killed thousands of their lives.  Now Iran they can do the same to America. In this article you learn that nuclear warfare is and always be a problem in history.

The Atomic Bomb

The Atomic Bomb | Warfare Harry Truman | Scoop.it
Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

This photo is of one of the planes that bombed japan. This plane is Enola gay and it shows the plane dropping the bomb on japan. You can see some smoke in the background rising up. I don’t think that was the bomb going off I think it was something that the bomb hit when it dropped or it could be gunfire from the plane or japan its hard to tell. I thought this was a good primary source because you can’t get much closer to the event than when the bomb was dropped. Its also a great visual aid to the actual bombing and not just is blowing up.

The Atomic Bomb

The Atomic Bomb | Warfare Harry Truman | Scoop.it
Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

I like this document because its gives you a lot of information but are hard to read because of the age of the document. This document was sent to the Japanese people stating that because you have bombed Pearl Harbor the president has now declared war on japan. It also stats that the Soviet Union is now involved so all the worlds most powerful nations are against them. What I found interring was that the Japanese’s ambassador has refused a deceleration of peace from the Soviet Union. This document also says that the citizens should leave the cities and warring them that they will lose the war. I thought that it was wrong to threaten the Japanese’s when most of the citizens weren’t even involved with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. I believe that this document is an example of a primary source because it was a letter sent to japan at the time.

Atomic Bomb-Truman Press Release-August 6, 1945

Atomic Bomb-Truman Press Release-August 6, 1945 | Warfare Harry Truman | Scoop.it
Andrew Duane Williams's insight:

Harry s. Truman was the president of the United States after FDR died 1945. The U.S. was still at war and the death count was climbing fast and Americans wanted it to end. Japan had nuclear bombs as they showed us by dropping it on pearl harbor in 1941 and congress along with the citizens were afraid that japan would bomb us again. Truman was feeling pressure from everyone so he decided to bomb japan in hopes that they would surrender. This document was an easy read and is a press release so it’s more of a secondary source. I like it because it tells you what was happening during the bombing of japan.
