Chemical Weapons in Iraq

​The United States troops and the Central Intelligence Agency have worked together to secretly purchase and remove all illegal and dangerous chemical weapons from Iraq. The United Nations began investigating the weapons that Iraq produced for the Gulf War during 1990-1991. When the United States took military action against Iraq, everything seemed normal until troops started coming across old, corroding, and volatile chemical weapons. In 2005 a secret operation (Operation Avarice) began and the CIA and US troops were able to purchase and remove over 400 weapons. Today, we do not know why Operation Avarice was kept secret from regular troops nor do we know many more details of the operation.

(Download  it to get a better view)

Introduction:

This infographic spotlights the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, I takes a look at one of the reasons the U.S. dropped the bomb on Japan. It also discusses the bombs themselves and they are compared to show how they both were extremely dangerous. I chose to focus on this topic since it was an extreme case of American intervention (on civilians no less) that ended up killing hundreds of thousands and even after the bombing damaged the land.

U.S.-AUS Relations

The United States and Australia (AUS) have had diplomatic relations for 75 years. The relationship began in 1940 after AUS left the British Empire. The ANZUS security act, which was signed in 1951, was put into place to create the foundation for the defense and security relationship between the two countries. This act was not enacted upon until 2001 by AUS, after the 9/11 attacks. I decided to focus on this topic because I thought that AUS has an interesting geographical location in the world. Also, in my mind, AUS is often forgotten when it comes to U.S. foreign policy.

Nkrumah's Ghana vs America

Ghana
We chose to write about the U.S financial involvement in Ghana because it was different from any other instance of U.S foreign involvement. The U.S used its financial power to influence countries across the ocean and showed once again that it is a super power.

Nkruhmah's Ghana vs America

We decided to do the relationship between Ghana and America. Kwame Nkrumah (president of Ghana) had a bright future planned for Ghana, but the execution was poor. He became blind to the people suffering from his actions and only had his plan in his mind.

The U.S Involvement during the India-Pakistan Conflict

https://magic.piktochart.com/output/5194176-untitled-infographic 

  The India-Pakistan conflict led to several different conflicts around the world where third parties wanted to intervene to either rescue one of the countries or to prevent a catastrophic event. Fighting over territory was one of the main causes in this on going conflict. With The U.S, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, China etc. I chose to do this topic because I was interested to in learning about India's connection to the United States. When I found that India had a conflict with neighboring country Pakistan and the United states and others were also involved in the conflict. I wanted to research more about it.

US Relations with Cuba Infographic

The major aspect of the relations is how Fidel Castro overthrow the dictator of Cuba back in 1959, which caused fear in the US over his possible plans for socialism. During most of this time the cold war was going on between the US and Russia. When Cuba allied with the Soviet Union it brought more tension to the stand off. Recently tensions have began to settle down and plans are underway to restore diplomatic ties between the groups.
I decided to focus on this topic as it allows me to look at the changes in US relations over the years. Additional the US-Cuba relations is a topic that we need to look back at now that diplomacy is to be renewed between the two countries.

Britain's involvement with America

My infographic is about America's development after succeeding from Great Britain. I wrote mostly about how America compares to Great Britain after the war. I compare things like their countries system, the people who "lead" their system and the people who actually rule the system (a.k.a the government and the parliament).

American Samoa Infographic

American Samoa is a very small island in the South Pacific that was taken control of by the US. We decided to work with the American Samoa because it is a place I have never previously focused on in school and we were interested in how the US involvement affected the native people.

The Gulf War - An Examination of US Foreign Policy

For my infographic, I chose to study the Gulf War, which took place from 1990 to 1991. What I found very interesting about it was that is set a precedent for much of our current foreign policy. It was our first major intervention in the Middle East, first of all, and it was our first conflict based almost entirely on oil. The US had come to a point where it was so dependent on oil that it would go to war to protect it. This is a major theme of US foreign policy in the 21st century, and the Gulf War was the first time it happened.
