i was wondering if i could get some help on the advantages and disadvantages of nationalism. i would also want to know some examples of excessive nationalism
Excessive nationalism produces most wars. World War I is the classic example of a war that was the result of excessive nationalism. Germany and Japan were excessively nationalistic and started World War II. Of course, nations defend themselves due to their own nationalistic interests.
Are we fighting a war in Iraq due to excessive nationalism in the U.S.? What do you think?
Ms Sue, i think nationalism plays quite a role in the war between Iraq and the U.S. The U.S is trying to help the people of that country establish a democratic system of government but it looks like they are being resisted very strongly by the opposition. It is now a contemplative issue since it is now too late to back out cos they are deeply immersed in it and as to whether to keep on fighting while watching many of their troops die. If they decide to back out know there is a probably that they will be followed back to the U.S.It is now a tight web and i somehow think the U.S doesnt want to back out and look like its afraid.
