Why did the United States want the Soviet Union to remove its nuclear weapons from Cuba? (1 point) A. It wanted to protect Cuba from communism. B. Cuba is close to the United States border. C. It was protecting nearby countries in Central America. D. The United States did not have any missiles of its own

The problem  was the closeness of Cuba to US. If the Soviet Union had its nuclear weapons so close to the US it could fire them and they'd reach the US before US could react in any way (e.g. by shooting down the plane carrying it). Generally countries feel very uneasy about nuclear weapons controlled by an enemy (or potential enemy) so close to their borders.

1. I believe the answer is:

a. Freedom of speech was eliminated.

b. Enemies of the state were imprisoned.

d. Cultural identity was destroyed.

The communists policies transferred all the power in society to the hands of the government. This made the citizens to have very little freedom, and the citizens are subjected to the orders made by the government. Since the press in communist regime tend to be owned by the government, it is very easy to paint all of government's opposition in negative light.

2. I believe the answer is: changing Stalin's policies

The de-stalinization was initiated when Nikita Khrushchev rose into power.  It involves removing all of stalin's influence in the government (firing all of his followers and backers). It also revert back communism ideology that Stalin implemented and reverse it back to pre-stalin socialism.

3. I believe the answer is: B. Economic issues

The economic policies installed by Krushchev failed to stabilize the russian economy. At that time, the price of basic necessities such as food and housing started to rose rapidly (between 25 - 35 %). This lead to many dissatisfaction among citizens and revolts started to appear opposing Krushchev's regime.

4.I believe the answer is: d. open the country to foreign visitors.

The purpose of this policy was to increase the national income from tourism industry which previously dead under previous regime. It also invites many investors from other countries to give their investment , which might lead to establishment of many job opportunities.

5. b.They increased censorship of arts and literature.

Both Brezhnev and Stalin believe that arts and literature could very much influence the way people think. Because of this, they increase the censorship of arts and literature in order to ensure that none of them were made to criticise their regime.

6. I believe the answer is: c.The Soviets wanted to reverse democratic reforms.

The previous leaders before Imre Nagy was backed by the Soviet Union. Nagy did not agree with how soviet union conduct its policies and initiated a democratic reform in hungary.  Removing nagy from the government would reverse this democratic reform and bring back hungary to soviet's influence.

7. I believe the answer is: D.The Soviets agreed to make limited concessions.

Before they initiate the rebellion, all territories in Poland and Hungary were fully controlled by the soviet union's influence. Limited concessions refers to the territories given to each country in which they have a limited autonomy to govern themselves.

8. I believe the answer is: C.People could read about ideas contrary to state policy.

When the soviet union's impose heavy censorship to all media, they can control the narrative that perceived by its people. The media shall never paint the government in negative ways. When the censorship is eased back, many media would start to appear and criticize the bad things that the government had done, which might weaken the communist party's influence in the country.

9. I believe the answer is: A. They developed new and powerful weapons

During Khrushchev's reign, the USSR developed several nuclear weapons that are capable to create havoc to any country on earth. Khrushchev at that time believe that in order to maintain peace , a country need to possess a certain level of threat to others, so other countries do not feel that they could do as they please.

What made trench warfare in WWI inevitable - why was the trench a natural reaction to the weapons of the era? What made WWI trench fighting especially terrible? Why, when asked, do the majority of historians say that WWI would be the war they LEAST want to fight in? If you were a general, and you wanted to BREAK the stalemate and attack through the trench systems, what strategies might you use? What tools might you need? Be Creative! No idea is too crazy!

Trench warfare was inevitable because there is no greater defense against gas and artillery. Or at least not at the time. Trench fighting was terrible because not only do you have to worry about an arty shell hitting your bunk, but you get to worry about things like trenchfoot, and pneumonia. In the occasion that I wanted to break a stalemate and attack through the trenches, i would equip all my soldiers with some sort of close range automatic weapon, I would get a fighter plane, and have them drop napalm on the enemy trench. Then, as a cleanup, i would send an entire platoon, in groups of 6, into the enemy line, and i would go with them to sweep up the trench

Which resulted from the use of new weapons and methods of warfare during world war i? fighting caused very little damage to infrastructure. more people were killed than in any previous war. hand-to-hand combat disappeared from the battlefield. the war lasted only two years?


More people were killed than in any previous war.


The second half of the nineteenth century had witnessed a profound transformation of the basic weapon of the infantryman: the rifle. Of the load by the mouth, which forced the soldier to stand, he went to the backload, which allowed to load lying down. From the waxed paper cartridge, the compact metallic cartridge was reached; from the round bullet, to the pointed bullet. To this the bolt, the percussion by needle and the cordite, the gunpowder without smoke added, that, therefore, did not give away to the handle. The principles of portable weapons of the twentieth century were served.

The need to have a weapon with greater firepower in the attacks forced the evolution of the machine gun. This is how the light machine guns emerged, in the case of the American BAR of 1917, or the submachine guns (lighter than a rifle), such as the German Bergmann of the following year, the MP18.

One of the main problems of the infantry in the trench warfare was overcoming the dense wire fences parallel to the enemy lines, which could occupy a surface of up to 30 meters in width. British Colonel Ernest Swinton was struck by an idea when he saw a tractor pulling a cannon: maybe he could crush the barbed wire and carry the cannon to shoot. Churchill became a defender of the new weapon, which would be built in secret. The first specimens were packed as "tanks" of water, hence the name.
