A) What did President Ford do to try to ease turmoil in the United States? B) How did he try to ease tensions with other nations?
I answered your last two questions. Now it's your turn.
We'll be glad to critique your answers.
He pardoned Richard Nixon he wanted to spare the country the agony of a former president on trial. (Watergate)
A new regime in Cambodia seized the American merchant ship Mayaguez after the ship entered Cambodian waters. President Ford called the seizure an "act of piracy" He sent naval force and about 2,000 marines to free the crew of 39 sailors.
ARE ANY OF THESE RIGHT?
Yes. They are right.
Here's more information:
"In foreign affairs Ford acted vigorously to maintain U. S. power and prestige after the collapse of Cambodia and South Viet Nam. Preventing a new war in the Middle East remained a major objective; by providing aid to both Israel and Egypt, the Ford Administration helped persuade the two countries to accept an interim truce agreement. Detente with the Soviet Union continued. President Ford and Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev set new limitations upon nuclear weapons."
