During the Great War (or, World War I), American attitudes towards the two sides involved were influenced in various ways. Perhaps most significantly, a general sympathy was felt for the Triple Alliance, especially Great Britain, based on their mostly similar forms of government and the mainly English heritage of many Americans. In respect to the Central Powers, American attitudes were generally hostile because of the aggressive conduct of Germany's submarine forces, which sank neutral ships, including American vessels,

In what most significant way was the American attitude towards the exercise of world power after World War 1 and World War 2 the same?
I don't think there is a single American attitude towards the Japanese. When I was younger in tyhe 80's, there was a strong fear and distrust of Japan (not unlike what w…e are experiencing with China right now). After all, you were beating us in manufacturing, and we were afraid of loosing our place on top of the world economy. Now, after Japan has had a lot of hard economic times, that attitude has largely vanished. In general, I think Americans think of Japanese as clever, industrious, creative (comics, movies, etc.) and and rather mysterious. We think of Japanese culture as exotic ... a culture that somehow blends modernity with ancient traditions. In general, I think the view is very positive now.
I think "Sod you Jack- we're all right" sums it up.
Though it has affected a select few American's attitudes toward immigration, it is by far not a national thing, as it is just too easy to beat around the presidential bu…sh over our current administration when Iraq is even mentioned. Osama, as well as many, many others have migrated/immigrated to neighboring Arab countries under the banner of Al Quaida and God only knows what other banners they have waved to pass various borders in order to avoid getting caught by those US trained MP's. If those Jihadists can scamper around the Middle East without being hassled, we must assume that there is more going on down south, in Dubya's back yard (Texas) no less. You hear tales of a little town in Mexico, right? Well, try Laredo, for this little Texan border town has had over 70 abductions by illegals, and it is only thanks to Glenn Beck that any of this, including the great injustices that were done to that poor town's dwindling police force, were even noticed. These upstanding officers have absolutely no backup, regardless of how many 911 calls end up with cops being shot by illlegals and cops going to jail for the fact that illegal's rights supersede those of US citizens.
American attitudes towards World War 1 at its outbreak were most feelings of indifference. At the time, most Americans had no interest in exerting American interests on ot…her countries and favored isolationism. However, several incidents shifted American opinion until eventually the US declared war on Germany, with full public support.
its when people from talley run around and say i like emmanuel k
You're gonna have to be more specific than that.
Negative in the south and some what positive in the north Hey I'm doing GCSE history so maybe I could help. White Americans believed the Indians were:Less educated and develo…ped because they believed in medicine men.Primitive, illiterate because they didn't send their children to schoolSavages because they didn't understand why warriors scalped their enemies.Uncivilised because they wouldn't sell their land as they believed land could not be owned, sold or bought. Also used all parts of the buffalo.Sinful as polygamy was allowed in the Indian culture.Lawless- Whites didn't understand there was a lack of government, law and order.Cowardly-the Indians used to count coup.Cruel because of exposure of the elderly. Before the civil war the whites were more linient with the Indians but once people started moving west and cattle ranching began the government saw the Indians as an obstacel for example in 1874 when gold was found in the Black Hills and the Sioux would not sell the land. people in the west wanted the utter destruction of the Indians and beleived the US army shold deal with this and people in the east had a negotiating view and though the best way of dealing with the Indias was to turn them into civilized Christian farmers. Hope this helps.
mad and most of civilians joined the war to finish it like chicken on a Saturday moring.
Senator Barry Goldwater, retired military men, many "blue collar" workers and middle class (the silent majority) members, and even some extreme members of the John Birc…h Society, were known as “hawks.” As President Johnson escalated the war effort, and became a hawk himself, his chief critics became known as “doves” and included antiwar protesters, college students and faculty, liberal Democrats, and many other people in various walks of life who felt that the war was immoral, dragging on to no benefit for the US, and was causing increased casualty lists to mount. Many believed the US was fighting a war against the wishes of the majority of the Vietnamese people. These critics felt the war was a civil war in Vietnam between north and south and we had no business interfering. Some supported the communist effort in Vietnam and hoped for a defeat of the “imperialist capitalist” United States. Many Americans felt we were fighting a small, unimportant county, while the real enemy was China and the Soviet Union. There were many demonstrations against the war which took the form of sit ins in college and high school campuses, marches both for and against the war, and editorials written for and against the war. One of the most infamous demonstrations took place at Kent State University, 1970, when National Guard troops fired on Kent State students and protesters and four were killed and eleven were wounded. Nixon had been elected on a promise to Vietnamize the war, meaning more fighting would be turned over to the South Vietnamese army, and to start bringing home American troops. When the President ordered US troops into Cambodia and ordered more bombings, the result was a tremendous uproar at home with more marches and demonstrations. Congress reacted to the antiwar feeling and repealed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution which gave the President the authority to send troops and fight the war in Vietnam. Our purpose in the war is debated to this day.
Slavery was outlawed in the US in 1807. Anything after that was considered contraband.

most Americans supported America's new global leadership role
America followed a policy of Isolationism at the beginning of the war. Basically, they felt that a war three thousand miles away over an ocean was none of their concern. Howev…er, they had no problem selling ammunition and other supplies to the warring countries, mainly England and France.
In US in WW2
Their attitude was than World War 2 was a European war and nothing to do with the US.
