5.01 World War Again
By:Nick Ruiz
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.
I think that the U.S. actions were no longer neutral when the US elected Franklin Roosevelt as the President. President Roosevelt had a great relationship with China. When China was getting attacked by Japan and needed help, President Roosevelt decided to step in and aid China. When we aided China it showed that the US were no longer neutral.
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.

1st Neutrality Act
Cash and Carry
U.S aid to China
Lend-Lease Act
I believe that the Lend-Lease Act was a great idea. The reason I believe that the Lend-Lease Act was a smart idea was because it allowed the president to aid other countries that were in need of the help. The Lend-Lease Act said that these countries in need of help did not need to pay in cash, but rather in return for payments on credit or in kindness. The Lend-Lease Act also helped the US gain respect. The three major countries that used this Lend-Lease Act were Great Britain, China and the Soviet Union.
I think that it was a good idea to aid China. When we aided China, they were being invaded by Japan. The United states was able to use the Cash and Carry policy to help aid China. Neither China nor Japan had officially declared war, so the United States Of America could aid China. Many of the British ships were used for the transportation of these aiding goods.
I personally think that Cash and Carry Act was very unnecessary because it would just make the United States weaker against the other countries. The Cash and Carry Act could endanger the United States and could have a potentially dangerous ending. The countries would have to pay in cash and would have their own ships to carry all of the military supplies.
When the Nye committee ended its investigation in 1936, the public support for isolationism was high. I agree with the 1st Neutrality Act because at this this time the US was very independent. There would be no reason to negotiate with the other countries that could have potentially hurt the US at a later time.
There were many reasons for US neutrality during the 1920s and 1930s of which the main reason being that the United States was a Isolationists country. This meant that the US did not want to deal with any of the other countries. In the late 1920s and early 1930s their was a lot of media that claimed that the US had joined World War I just for profit.
