The Holocaust, 9/11, wars and assassinations are common events that come to mind when thinking about history. These events tend to make people think that mankind is evil and will always choose to be evil. However, when looking at the people behind the evil doings, are they really killing for a selfish reason? Mankind will always do good for their nation, no matter the cost. While most powerful leaders end up hurting many people, they either have good intentions behind the mask of people suffering or people come together to stop the leader. When Hitler ended up killing many Jews, countries came together as a nation to save the Jews from the camps. Good will overrule the horrible events in Earth’s past, present and future. Pearl Harbor, 9/11, and ISIS all have one thing in common, nationalism. The beginning event occurred on December 7th, 1941 and is globally known as Pearl Harbor, the event that woke America from the Great depression. Pearl Harbor was hit with a surprise attack consisting of 353 Imperial Japanese fighter planes, bombers, and torpedo planes in two waves, all launched from 6 aircraft carriers. The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor thinking it would prevent America from getting involved in Japan’s military actions; their plan backfired and America soon joined World War II shortly after Pearl Harbor. During the September of 1940, the U.S. banned trading exports of steel, scrap iron, and aviation fuel to Japan because of Japan taking over of Northern Indochina.
