I have an immense amount of power from my invention, the "Big Stick Diplomacy"
Sinking of the Lusitania-1915
HOW DARE THE GERMANS DO THIS!!!
This war began because of yellow journalism which occurred for 3 months as they were fighting between Spain in Cuba and U.S. and Philippines. This concluded Cuba's independence and Puerto Rico, Guam and Philippines was now gained by the U.S.
Pearl Harbor Attack-1941
To add on to the power gained by America around the world, the Monroe Doctrine was developed and this reminded Americans the role of the "International Police Power" which ended unjust European incursion into the Latin American states, helped keep economic affairs consistent.
Bombing of Hiroshima-1945
In the beginning of World War Ⅰ, Germany sunk the European passenger ships which cause the deaths of 128 Americans. This caused the U.S.going to war which they weren't siding with either side of the war until they joined Europe. Wilson tried to negotiate with Germany, but they wanted to back.
Japanese Surrender of WWⅡ-1945
After World War Ⅱ, the fear of the U.S. joining the war in Europe cause Japan to drop bombs on the naval base in Pearl Harbor. This caused U.S. to fight back against the Axis Powers of World War Ⅱ.
After Germany surrendered, the U.S. warned Japan of their atomic bombs. When Japan refused to surrender, the bombs were dropped which killed hundreds of thousands of people instantly.
After the devastating bombing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Emperor Hirohito finally announced the surrender of Japan. This innocent blood that was put on was not worth the destruction of the country.
