    The original conflict was between the French and the Communist forces of North Vietnam, mainly the National Liberation Front (NLF), which was later given the title of "Viet Cong" by Americans, a slang-term meaning "Vietnam Communists". The NLF's goal was to unify all of Vietnam under one rule and to free itself of France's colonial rule. Despite the name given to them by Washington, the NLF allowed anyone to join, Communist or not, "as long as they opposed Ngo Dinh Diem and wanted to unify Vietnam." [ 1]

    When Gorbachev was elected in 1985, he brought two new policies which at first, people thought would help the Soviet Union but eventually, it brought an end to the empire. Glasnost and Perestroika were the two policies. Glasnost ended the censorship and soviets were allowed to speak freely about the government and problems in the society. It also stopped the jamming of radio broadcast from the West. Perestroika was not a policy to end communism but it was a policy that would bring an end to poverty and other social problems. Local factories had more power and were allowed to regulate their prices with the demand of their product.

    In the picture to the left: President Truman is signing one of the many pieces of legislation that he passed during his time in office. The uproar that his mandates and laws created are well reflected in the amount of people gathered around to view the signing of the National Security Act. His influential ideas had a lasting impact on foreign policy in the United States.

    4.) The Gulf War was the first war fought that was televised to home across the country. With TV prices decreasing, the majority of families in America were able to supply a television. The news media entered a heated competition in order to receive the most views. Between stunning war images, exclusive interviews from the Pentagon, and frequent updates from Iraq, Americans were completely enthralled by the idea of war. The concise coverage of the war was an indirect form of propaganda which swayed many Americans to be in favor of the war across seas. It also proved to raise George H. Bush's presidency rating to 90%, a U.S. record. Other forms of propaganda including a testimony and journalism brought a lot of attention from the American public. Time Magazine published a special issue covering the entirety of the war.

    60,000 American troops to the Saudi Arabian oil fields. With little cooperation from Saddam Hussein, on November 29, The United Nations established a January 15, 1991 deadline for Iraqi troops to abandon Kuwait before the UN acted with force against them. Expectantly, Hussein refused to abide by the UN's demands and as a result Operation Desert Storm was launched on January 18th.
    2.) After obtaining Saudi Arabian approval, the U.S. military ordered troops to occupy and unleash a war against Iraq. The Americans hoped to preserve cheap oil flow in the West. The first major act of violence was introduced on January 17, 1991, known as Operation Desert Storm. The United States almost instantly claimed air supremacy after the Air Force sent 1,300 men and the Navy fired hundreds of missiles. When U.S. President George H. W. Bush declared a cease-fire on Feb. 28, most of the Iraqi forces in Kuwait had either surrendered or fled.After several casualties but little reaction from Iraq, the United States initiated ground troops to attack. After just 4 days the troops had covered all ground in Iraq, causing panic amongst many Iraqi citizens. Six weeks after the breakout of war, the battle was officially won by the United Nations.

    3.) After World War II and the collapse of communism, The USA has the power to be an emperor of the world. George H.W. Bush and William Clinton established what was called "New World Order." New Word Order was the unity of nations to protect peace and human rights of all those countries in need. The PersianGulf War was the first test to the New World Order when the UnitesStates allied with Great Britain, France, Canada, Australia and various Arab states to protect the rights of Kuwait. The New World Order not only proved to be successful in dispersing Iraqi troops from Kuwait, but it also allowed the U.S. to surpass the Vietnam Legacy.

    He named all family members (and animals) accordingly, so they could have his own initials. His daughters' names, Lynda Bird and Luci Baines are examples, and also his dog, Little Beagle Johnson.
    In World War II, Johnson flew a combat mission on a tour of the southern Pacific. Before takeoff, he left the B-26 bomber, the Washbash Cannonball, to use the restroom. Upon his return, the plane had taken off without him. Therefore, he boarded a different plane, the Heckling Hare. During this mission, the Heckling Hare was called back to base, while the Washbash Cannonball crashed, killing everyone on board.
