North Korea wasn't attacked because they has nuclear missile, Iraq was attacked because iraq attacked to Kuwait and Israel. but after Iraq war U.S shift war policy to diplomacy and dialogue with iran by economic sanctions, which actully sounds like failed a couple days ago. Syria's civil war is infact a war with Iran.
The start of the Islamic resurgence can be dated to about 1973. That's when they put together an oil cartel known as OPEC, and started raising prices for oil. The resulting oil revenues were sufficient to fund economic development, and also provide for large increases in national defense budgets.
The United States could produce enough nuclear material for one atomic bomb every six months. In August, 1945, it had the two bombs and at least "part" of a third. If Japan hadn't surrendered by then, a third bomb would have been available no later than early 1946.

According to the accusations against him, Burr’s goal was to create an independent nation in the center of ...
The issue that brought about the breakup of A T & T was that it controlled 1) regional telecommunications, 2) long distance telecommunications, and 3) telecom equipment (Western Electric, Bell Labs), etc. under one roof. That allowed one company to control "too much" of the whole sector. Regulators gave A T& T the choice of divesting either the ...
Wikipedia and Timeline provide a hint of the many discoveries that Bell Labs was working on during the breakup. A partial list of answers includes optical routers, signaling, lasers, HDTV, optical digital processors and the like.
By January 1964, public opinion had started to change - 68% now supported a meaningful civil rights act. President Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act in July of that year. I'm not quite sure how to answer your first question; the syntax is very difficult, and I have no idea how to measure how many people did not oppose a measure. What I can ...

The two situations were completely different: in 1943 Iran was largely occupied by the Allies (British and Russian) who thus had the final say in everything. Whereas in 1979 the Shah was toppled by a genuine revolution; at that stage there was nothing the US could have done for him. Perhaps if he had abdicated himself a few years before 1979 in favour of, ...
Yes, there was such a bill, known as Indiana Pi Bill, but it was never approved by the State. You can find a very interesting article on the matter, written by Arthur E. Hallerburg, in the text of Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science. Search for the phrase House Bill No. 246 Revisited. The whole affair started in 1894, when American Mathematical ...
I believe the "Tooth-to-tail ratio", the ratio of combat personnel to support personnel, is a useful guide for how many troops would have been involved in fighting. This is a slightly dodger proposition today in wars without a front-line (where logistics personal have a very real prospect of being engaged), but seems reasonable for WW2. I happen to be ...

I was born in the 1950s, so I will answer this question based on my knowledge of the 1950s. The "post war consensus" lasted through the 1950s (heightened by "Sputnik"), and into the 1960s (when the U.S. finally surpassed the Soviet Union in the space race). One instrument used to accomplish this end was "McCarthyism." That is, labelling "dissidents" as ...

Wikipedia confirms On the 5 of March 1770— the same day as the Boston Massacre—Lord North, the new Prime Minister, presented a motion in the House of Commons that called for partial repeal of the ...
