Explain the reasons for U.S. neutrality during the 1920s and 1930s. How did ideas about neutrality change during the period from the end of World War I to the passage of the Lend-Lease Act? Be sure to include any events, terms, or people that may support your response.
Franchesca and Ylaira : We both believe that the point at which US actions were no longer neutral when President Roosevelt declared that neutality would change due to the spreading of the war. Japan's expansion definatly had an effect.
In your opinion, what was the point at which U.S. actions were no longer neutral? Explain your reasoning with supporting details from the lesson.
In your opinion, what was the point at which U.S. actions were no longer neutral? Explain your reasoning with supporting details from the lesson.
Criticize or defend each of the U.S. actions surrounding World War II that are listed below. Justify your opinion with supporting details from the lesson.
1st Neutrality Act: "By the time the Nye Committee ended its investigation in 1936, public support for U.S. isolationism ran high. It was in this political environment that Congress passed the first Neutrality Acts. The Neutrality Acts of 1935 and 1936 barred Americans from lending money to warring nations or selling them arms. The laws did not differentiate between aggressive nations and the countries they invaded." I believe this act was a good action of behalf of the US. This represented the idea of neutrality and it was preventing the US from getting involved with other countries, which was the whole purpose.
Cash and Carry: This was part of the 2nd act and at this point the US was involving themselves in the war. This act allowed for "...the United States could sell military supplies to warring nations. These nations were required to transport the supplies on their own ships and pay for all purchases in cash."
U.S aid to China: "He was able to do this using a type of cash and carry policy. China paid for supplies, and British ships were used to carry supplies to the Chinese. This action infuriated isolationists. Events in Europe would soon put Roosevelt and the isolationists on a collision course." Roosevelt at this point had fully involved the US. By working with China, we were working against Japan by selling war goods and placing economic sanctions against Japan.
Lend-Lease Act: Under this act, The US could provide aid financially to any country in need of economic aid. This was a terrible idea because this allowed for the us to get involved with Germany during the war.

One of the reasons neutrality was that the US did not want conflict with other countries, they wanted to be low on the radar. "Harding's short administration worked to lessen the chances of another global conflict." The neutrality changed over time for example, "The Neutrality Acts of 1935 and 1936 barred Americans from lending money to warring nations or selling them arms. The laws did not differentiate between aggressive nations and the countries they invaded." In comparison to "Under this policy, the United States could sell military supplies to warring nations. These nations were required to transport the supplies on their own ships and pay for all purchases in cash. This policy would expire after two years."
