Militaries are comprised of soldiers, characteristic of befitting the armed forces or the nation and are called “the army” collectively. Science is knowledge, general truths or particular facts, obtained and shown to be correct by accurate observation and thinking. When science is focused on the military, it is known as “military science”. How was military science developed? It is obvious that it is invented to fight against others and causes an opposition, which is called “War”. War is a conflict by force of arms between political bodies, the science or art of arms but also a terrible way to express a nation’s decisions or position. As we can observe that war directly pertains to military science, it is clear that wars are fought because of competition between nations in military science and the military science is improved because of wars. World War I and World War II are the biggest and most deadly wars so far between human beings; therefore they clearly support this statement. War World I was happened between 1914- 1919, and was fought between two group of power, Central Powers and Allies. The Central Powers were made of Austria- Hungry, Bulgaria, Ottoman and Germany; the Allies were formed by Britain, France, and Russia. They grouped together because of fear of militarism, imperialism and the ideas of nationalism. As Dr. James West Davidson states “Nationalism encourages unity, it also created mistrust and bitter rivalry between European nations”; “Imperialism fueled rivalries among powerful nation. Between 1870 and 1914, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, and Russia scrambled for colonies in Africa, Asia and the Pacific. Often, several nations competed for power in the same region.”; “Militarism was a source of tension. European nations expanded their armies and navies, creating new stresses”[1] Nationalism gives feeling that one nation or race is…...

Military Spending

...Government Limit the Military Spending? There is a product, each country only have one. To buy it, everybody in this country should dig their pocket. This product is named military spending. With the large amounts of research and the development of high technology weapons, regional warming of local wars, armed conflicts, and intensified arms race, the series of a new arms race, military deployment and new high-growth military spending boost are being performed on the international stage. However, governments are concerned about seeking “peace via war”. As the arms trade is the major cause of suffering for human beings, governments should limit their military spending; nobody in the world wants war. Under such rhetoric combined with powerful lobbying of the military industries, governments are intentionally aiding military, because the military spending is an important indicator to reflect the dimension of a country’s military strength, and also a major factor of the military strength. As it is a serious issue in the world and so important for every country, every country values this issue as a primary one and pay special attention on it. As each country has different situation and government systems, there are different views towards military spending. Some people suggest increasing the military spending while some people suggest governments to cut the military spending. Some people think that government should keep increasing the military......

The Uses of Simulation in the Military

...The Uses of Simulation in the Military Week 1, Research Paper Simulation has been a part of the military for almost as long as war has been around. However the types of simulations that we use today are a modern invention. Generals have been creating and testing strategies in simulation for a long time. Today we have the technology to create virtual representations of a battle zones stocked with geographical landscapes, both hostile and non-hostile NPCs (non-playable characters) and controllable entities acting as the various soldiers and vehicles. Simulation is a great and a necessary tool for training your soldiers and winning the war, the most important of these simulations are wargames, field exercises and flight training. One of the oldest types of simulation in the military are Wargames. A wargame generally is a type of game or simulation that is designed to expose a player to concepts and aspects of war (University of Virginia, 1999). Wargames would have started at the time of the first organized war (University of Virginia, 1999). These games were most likely picking an action then taking that action testing it and then tweaking the plan to make it better (University of Virginia, 1999). Generals used this setting for many years, allowing them to come up with better strategies, therefor winning more battles. In 7th century India there was a wargame called Chaturanga, Chaturanga in many aspects is much like the game chess which is often played today. In the game......

...succeeding Ronald Reagan. He entered office at a period of change in the world; the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Soviet Union came early in his presidency. He ordered military operations in Panama and the Persian Gulf, at one point, Bush was recorded as having a record-high approval rating of 89 percent. Early in his term, Bush faced the problem of what to do with leftover deficits spawned by the Reagan years. At $220 billion in 1990, the deficit had grown to three times its size since 1980. Which to this day we still have not fully recovered from. Had Bush not entered into his presidential position with so many millions of dollars in debt, I believe its quite possible that he would have been reelected in 1992 because he wouldn’t have been disliked so greatly for breaking his word and promise to America to not raise taxes during his term in office. The Persian Gulf Was also known as operation Desert Storm, was initiated on January 17th 1991. This was a very emotional time for not only my family but also the American people. President George H. W. Bush deployed U.S. forces into Saudi Arabia, and also urged other countries to send their own forces to the scene. An array of nations joined the Coalition. Being that I was from a big southern family, being a member in the US Military was deemed very respectable. I recall having several family members that were deployed during operation Desert Storm. It was a tough time at home for my parents knowing that close......

Military Aftermath

...during his training. I wondered if he was in any danger in these gas chambers or how he would be treated by those in higher ranks. I wanted to know how much control the military now had over his life and if this training would change who he is as a person. I always wondered, but never really wanted to know the answer to, if he was ever going to kill anybody and how he could get himself to pull the trigger. Back in World War II, sergeants had a hard time getting their troops to pull the trigger at the enemy. According to Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, M.Ed., who taught psychology at West Point and is currently a professor and chair of the department of military science at Arkansas State University and a former Army Ranger and paratrooper, only 15 to 20% of riflemen would actually shoot at the enemy. Everyone else would miss on purpose by firing above the enemy, round up wounded soldiers, or collect ammunition. To me, this makes perfect sense. If I was in battle I don’t know if I could get myself to take away another person’s life. Grossman explained it as “the simple and demonstrable fact that there is, within most men and women, an intense resistance to killing other people. A resistance so strong that, in many circumstances, soldiers on the battlefield will die before they can overcome it.” Because of this, the military got smart. Grossman expresses that an era of psychological warfare was conducted upon our own troops; using methods of desensitization, classical and operant......

...Controversy in the Military For the longest time homosexuals have had to deal with discrimination everywhere, including the military. When Bill Clinton ran for president, he gave a promise to the gays he would allow them to fight, but changed his stance when elected and did not follow through on his promise. Instead Clinton issued the policy Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell that still hindered the homosexual’s chance of getting into the military. Finally, now after years of discrimination, a Representative of the House wrote a bill that will allow homosexuals the right to join and fight in the armed forces. The H.R. 1283 Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2009 states homosexuals can join the military and should pass for the benefit of all those who serve the armed forces. Official discrimination against homosexuals began during World War II. Before World War II, it was only African Americans who had a hard time joining the military, but then the military started becoming stricter on who can join and who cannot. The military started making people take a psychological test, where anyone who wanted to join the military had to get tested by a psychiatrist (Katel). If people claimed they were gay, they could not join the armed forces. Discrimination continued in every war America has fought until Bill Clinton came along. When Clinton ran for president, he guaranteed to lift the ban that the military established on not allowing homosexuals the right to fight. To get around his campaign...

The Rise of Canadian Military Professionalism in World War 1

...The Rise of Canadian Military Professionalism in World War 1 Paul Dickson in his article “The End of the Beginning: The Canadian Corps in 1917,” attempts to answer the question of what factors were responsible for the turnaround in professionalism and capability of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) during the later half of the First World War. The author’s thesis is that the Canadian Corps that fought at Vimy Ridge was not the superlative force that the Canadian public thought they were. In fact, during the early period of World War I, before 1916, the Canadian Corps was still in its infancy and definitely undergoing teething troubles, even though the beginning of a firm and solid base was slowly developing. “The Canadian Corps that took Vimy Ridge was not the “elite” formation it would become in 1918, but the foundation was firmly in place.” Prior to 1916, the author explains that the key ingredients to success that are described as “good habits” and a “good organizational culture” , were not fully in place and prevented the CEF from reaching its maximum operational effectiveness. Dickson is intrigued with the CEF in that there was an element that made them unique to both their Allied and Axis counterparts allowing them to reach this “elite” plateau, as the “Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) shared many of the problems encountered by other armies on the Western Front…” . He attempts to explore this question and seek answers. Was it better......

These events happened decide how the world is going to be, such as the Cold War that made changes in the U.S. military. The Cold War happened between the U.S. and USSR from 1945 to 1991. During the Cold War, the two superpowers were competing with each other. They had varieties of competitions in different ways such as nuclear arms race. One of the biggest reasons for their competitions is that the U.S. and the USSR have two different political systems. As the final result we occur today, the Cold War forced the U.S. to cease their nuclear weapons and instead focus on conventional weapons. Both the United States and the Soviet Union emerged right after the World War II as the two strongest powers in the world, advanced in various aspects such as technology, military, and economy. However, their development was based on two different political systems that to some extent go against each other. These two national systems were very different. The system in the U.S. called capitalism. Capitalism has been known by profit income, private wealth, competitive markets, and inequality classes. The system emphasizes on personal ownership and individual development. The system in the USSR called communism.......

How Far Was the Korean War a Military and Political Success for the Usa?

...How far was the Korean War a military and political success for the USA? Arguably, the numerous political and militant events mean that it is possible to state that the Korean War was infact a success for the USA, with events such as the Inchon Landings, and the pushing back of the opposing forces to the 38th Parallel. However, it can be equally argued that it was a Military failure, with the most obvious example being the retreat following the Dragon Attacks. Similarly, the complex political nature of this war also means that success is debatable, for example, the anti – communist paranoia and the decision to introduce General McArthur. The Inchon Landings serve as on of the most famed military successes achieved by the US army to this very day. Despite being extremely risky in theory, with the very real possibility of the target area being mined by the North Koreans, the attack went on regardless, under the orders of McArthur. This event was a hugely successful attack, taking the Koreans by complete surprise, and as a result Inchon was successfully taken. Moreover, in terms of military casualties for the US, these were extremely minimal. Furthermore, the entire North Korea position within South Korea collapsed, a massively success story in the eyes of the US. Additionally, Walkers army in Pusan forced the remainder of North Korean troops into retreat. As a result, Kim’s forces were left with no option but to return to the 38th Parallel, due to being subsequently cut......

Military Leaders Contributions to the American Military Tradition, American Culture, American Way of War, and the Exhibiting of Christian Values

...MILITARY LEADERS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE AMERICAN MILITARY TRADITION, AMERICAN CULTURE, AMERICAN WAY OF WAR, AND THE EXHIBITING OF CHRISTIAN VALUES ***** ******* HIUS 380– Spring B02 March 11, 2016 The United States of America has exemplary Divisions of Armed Forces where many outstanding members have stood courageous and resilient in their service to this country and the protection of others. General John J. Pershing, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and General Matthew B. Ridgway are three of the military leaders which this paper will depict and associate while expounding upon the way each contributed to the American Military Tradition. Continuing in how these individuals were or were not representative of an American culture or an American Way of War as interpreted in this course of study. Also, an opinion will be offered regarding such persons as to whether or not each was an appropriate Christian role model. No matter the similitudes or dissimilarities of the individuals each will prove to be distinguished and accomplished in their innovative and outstanding leadership and service to this country. Military Tradition in the United States of America is a frequent reference to relationship and affiliation through the ancestral line of a serviceman and an individual’s advancements and accomplishments as soldiers. American Military Tradition will endeavor itself to change as new technologies and ideologies transpire. The reflection of change or enhancement will reveal......

Military Suicides

...are many theories behind what is driving this, however there are no hard facts behind any of these theories and there is still no concrete reason why white males are more prone to commit suicide. A very important group within the American population has been increasing rapidly as well in suicides. The rate of suicides in the U.S. military is so high now, that in 2012, more service members died from suicide than combat exposure. Determining the driving factors behind this increase is not only important in mission readiness and the safety of our nation but can provide information on whether or not key individuals (whites, males) should not be used in combat situations if already prone to suicide. Because it is already proven in the civilian world that these individuals are more prone to commit suicide, one must wonder if this is true in the military. What characteristics predict whether or not an American soldier will commit suicide? Is it the same as in the civilian world? And if there is any difference, it may be important to know in prevention and treatment as well as selection for service and screening measurements.  Suicides among U.S military members, both active and reserve, have become increasingly common as shown in Figure 3. Beginning after the conflicts in the Middle East around 2001, the service member suicide rates have been rising. From 2005 to 2008, in active duty members alone, the rate increased from 10.3 to 16.3 per 100,000. Since 2009, suicide rates among......

Homosexuality in the Military

...Serving in the military is for many the most honored position they will hold in their lifetime. Many dedicate their entire lives to serving their country. For some soldiers however their dream of proudly serving their country was cut short because they are gay, lesbian or bisexual. America’s attitude towards acceptance of homosexuals has continued to grow over the past couple of decades, but full acceptance and equality is still far off. Nowhere are attitudes towards homosexuality more conservative than in the U.S. military, yet even here attitudes are slowly evolving towards acceptance and equality. Gays and lesbians were banned from serving in the military until 1992 when President Clinton signed into law “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, which allowed homosexuals to serve as long as they did not discuss their sexuality, and the military could not ask about it. The debate about whether homosexuals should be allowed in the military at all and of whether they should be allowed to be open about their sexual orientation while serving has been ongoing over the last thirty years. Sexuality has no bearing on one’s ability to be a good soldier or on the cohesion of a military unit. Gays and lesbians should be allowed to serve openly in the military, because the policy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is harmful to both soldiers and the military. Human sexuality is complicated, yet we live in a society that tries to only see such issues in a black and white fashion. Homosexuals have......

...Military Technology Technology in the military has greatly increased strength and eased the ranking among world powers and effected the development of new military weapons. The term "Survival of the fittest" means that the strong will succeed but the meek will not, this is the case with military technology. The U.S. has the best technology in the world, therefore we are the highest military power. Technology is a very important part of warfare. Technology is driven by the military. The army's race during the cold war, spawned some of the greatest technical achievements in human history. Space travel for example is a result of the X-plane project. The Internet was produced by the military as well. If we stop investing in military technology, we risk our safety. If other nations had more advance technology than we do, they would have more power than we do. If that was to happen, we face the threat of that nation taking over us. Military technology may be divided into five categories. Offensive arms harm the enemy, while defensive weapons ward off offensive attacks. Transportation technology moves soldiers and weaponry; communications coordinate the movements of armed forces; and sensors detect forces and guide weaponry. There are many types of technological developments in the military happening at all times. They range from new aircraft to sophisticated guidance systems. Teams of specialists work for years to develop some of our simplest equipment. These......
