What event led to a stronger relationship between the United States and Iraq, despite no official re-establishment of diplomatic ties?
The Iran-Iraq War, as the United States provided intelligence and logistical support in arming Iraq. Under both the Reagan and Bush administrations, the U.S. authorized the sale to Iraq of weapons, including chemical. A report concluded that the U.S., under the successive presidential administrations, sold materials including anthrax, and botulism to Iraq right up until March 1992.
What led to the creation of the Church of England, or the Anglican Church?
King Henry VIII sought an annulment from his wife, Catherine of Aragon. Catherine had failed to give birth to a male heir and around 1527, Henry tried to convince the Vatican to grant him an annulment from his wife. The pope would not oblige and hence, Henry dismissed papal authority and created the Church of England, thus initiating the English Reformation.
Is there any religious imagery in the book, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?
Yes, there is. There is a reference to Jesus Christ in the introduction of Ellis, a patient who is receiving electroshock therapy. Ellis is posed against the wall with his arms spread out on either side, adopting a crucifixion pose. This imagery alludes to Christ, "with a crown of electric sparks in place of thorns".
