Whereas naval units of the Communist regime in Vietnam, in violation of the principles of the Charter of the United Nations and of international law, have deliberately and repeatedly attacked United Stated naval vessels lawfully present in international waters, and have thereby created a serious threat to international peace; and Whereas these attackers are part of deliberate and systematic campaign of aggression that the Communist regime in North Vietnam has been waging against its neighbors and the nations joined with them in the collective defense of their freedom; and Whereas the United States is assisting the peoples Of southeast Asia to protest their freedom and has no territorial, military or political ambitions in that area, but desires only that these people should be left in peace to work out their destinies in their win way: Now, therefore be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Congress approves and supports the determination of the President, as Commander in Chief, to take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against the forces of the United States and to prevent further aggression. Section 2.
The United States regards as vital to its national interest and to world peace the maintenance of international peace and security in southeast Asia. Consonant with the Constitution of the United States and the Charter of the United Nations and in accordance with its obligations under the Southeast Asia Collective Defense Treaty, the United States is, therefore, prepared, as the President determines, to take all necessary steps, including the use of armed force, to assist any member or protocol state of the Southeast Asia Collective Defense Treaty requesting assistance in defense of its freedom. Section 3.This resolution shall expire when the President shall determine that the peace and security of the area is reasonably assured by international conditions created by action of the United Nations or otherwise, except that it may be terminated earlier by concurrent resolution of the Congress The federal bureau spoke to legislature and the American community about an alleged ambush on the US Maddox US boat that was defeated in the Gulf of Tontine, close to Vietnam. This event was actually a lie. As a consequence, all but two Congressmen chose to give President Johnson the complete decision to go to war with North Vietnam. The Gulf of Tontine Resolution had an immediate horrible result on the general public of America.
The resolution steered America to a harsh and costly war that America soon realized couldn’t be won.F-or his 1 964 presidential election, Johnson effectively disregarded Vietnam as a subject of the campaign. Nevertheless, the growth of the war, permitted by the resolution, forever stamped the misfortune of Vietnam into Johnny’s second administration. This drew the publics eye away from his massive and motivated program for communal improvements and civil rights. This was called the Great Society. Approximations show that more than 50,000 Americans died in Vietnam. Unfortunately, Vietnamese fatalities totaled above 2 million.
When the resolution was first administrated, Americans supported the Gulf of Tontine Resolution whole heartedly, as well as the growth of the battle.The House accepted the resolution unanimously with only two representatives, Wayne Morse of Oregon and Ernest Greening of Alaska, voted against it The result of the Resolution was essentially a “green light” to strike back against North Vietnam using American forces. The Tontine Gulf Resolution was the instigator in the increase of conflict in South Vietnam. Johnson took advantage of the Gulf of Tontine Incident as a reason to attempt to acquire additional war powers. President Johnson then went to congress and he asked for war powers. He requested the ability to send military troops, short of the legislature’s support. The Gulf of Ton kin Incident as well as the following of the Gulf of Tontine Resolution, delivered the explanation for added IIS growth of the battle in Vietnam.
Operation Rolling Thunder, a bombing campaign against the North, was launched after Johnson assumed that Hanoi would ultimately deteriorate after being confronted with bombing attacks. Operation Rolling Thunder started on February 13, 1 965 and lasted until spring of 1967. Johnson similarly sanctioned the first of many war troops to Vietnam to battle the Viet Congo in its rural landscape. Later, after additional facts about the Tontine Incident came to be accessible, several decided that President Johnson and his consultants had misinformed Legislature into agreeing with their idea of the extension of the war. The United States developed into supporters with South Vietnam. The United States ended up hostile until 1973. The war remains to be contentious.
BMGT110 Week 6 Discussion
Reply to at least four different postings by other classmates. Responses to initial postings should be specific and assess whether posting accurately and sufficiently addresses the questions asked in the discussion topic and should incorporate relevant research correctly. Explain your assessment as to why the information is or is not correct and/or complete, providing correct information to enhance the discussion.
1.)The definition of diversity in and of itself means different, therefore it stands to reason the definition of a diverse work force would mean to have different people of various backgrounds, beliefs, and lives that are ever changing all coming together (like a melting pot) to form a workforce needed for a business. A great example of a diverse workforce would be the United States Military, I am currently serving in the military as a welder. I can tell you for a fact that no one in the military is the same. We all come from different backgrounds and ways of life, a fine example of a knit workforce that functions in tune with one another regardless of where they come from.
I am not entirely sure why (on the civilian side of employment) employers would higher diverse groups, but if I had to take an educated guess it would be to encourage those like the individuals they hired to want to also apply to work for them knowing that they will be able to be them selves and not be judged while working in a stable, secured, and professional work environment. I believe that the benefits would be to have a pool of diverse potential employees to have if an employer ever needed to hire more employees if the need to had ever raised. The benefits I personally would see would lots of individuals who could put aside their differences to do a job both proficiently and professionally as they could regardless of their history, backgrounds ( to a certain extent), or beliefs.
One strategy an employer could use would be to advertise to all groups and hire those who are both qualified and diverse for the job position. In my personal experience as a minority (out side of the military), it is important to me that a company advertise openly that they are accepting of all diversities before or during an applicant process. That way it is understood before and after taking a job that the working environment is a safe place regardless of how you identify.
One potential problem an employer might experience during a hiring process, is speculation from a applicant that they were not offered position based on their minority. A way of gently handling this situation would be to explain your reasoning with work ethic examples as to why they weren’t offered the job. Let them know about the employment policy regarding the protection of diversity. Encourage them to apply at a later date if another position becomes available. It’s important that they are shown value as a person, regardless of how they identify.

2.)Diversity in the workplace means that different types of people work at the organization. Diverse workplaces have employees of varying ages, gender, race, education, marital status, etc. Organizations want to attract diversity for different reasons, such as innovation, localization, and adaptability. Diversity brings innovation because employees with different perspectives and ideas collaborate. Diversity brings localization because the employees can relate to broader demographics. Diversity brings adaptability because new ways of thinking and decision making allow the organization to keep up with consumers.
To attract a diverse workforce, organizations must use internal and external tactics to recruit applicants. An example of internal recruitment is hiring from within. An example of external recruitment is an organization attending job fairs at different colleges or universities to attract younger candidates. It is important for organizations to appeal to everyone, so they should emphasize diversity during recruitment. To retain a diverse workforce, organization should implement and require diversity trainings. Some people have never been in a diverse atmosphere, so trainings can ensure that all employees are taught how to work with others.
Issues that can arise from focusing on diversity are cliques, communication barriers, and and resistance to change (Vaux, 2016). Cliques can form when a place is very diverse because people are more comfortable being around others who are similar to them. Conflicts can stem from communication barriers. People may speak different languages or perceive conversations differently than others. Resistance to change can be an issue because some people are stubborn.

3.)Diversity in the context of a work environment would mean having people with different backgrounds, experiences, and life experience. This can come from different religious backgrounds, work experience, race, gender, age, educational background, sexual orientation, and even geographic location (Williams, L. (2022)). A diverse workforce could look like people from all walks and areas of life working together as a unit to accomplish a goal for the company they work for.
Diversity has been a large topic at my current employer, with greater focus on Employee Resource Groups and getting current employees to become more involved with D
