Great Britain and France are excellent world powers who are jealous of Germany. All the countries mentioned above have been in an arms race for at least 3 decades and are ready to show off their military might.

In the late 1970s, Harvey Milk and George Moscone were killed by Dan White. Milk was known for being gay and holding political office. Many people were against his holding office, but others supported him and his views. At one time, Dan White worked with Milk and Moscone. However, he became upset and went to their offices and killed them immediately.

After this took place, people began to riot in San Francisco and this became known as the White Night Riots. This was brought about not so much due to the anger towards Milk’s killing, but for the light sentence that White got. Dan White received a voluntary manslaughter sentence and was to serve a seven-year sentence for killing two people.
