As the casualties grew, disillusionment began. The news of the Tet Offensive, was received with shock and unhappiness across the nation and started the biggest period of anti-war protests. CONCLUSION The biggest effect of the Vietnam War was the loss of lives and many more wounded. Both countries were ruined. More poverty, suffering continued for years afterward and I just think that when countries go to war, there is no winner because of all the pain and suffering that occurred during and after the
The Civil War left America in a state of disarray, with over 600,000 casualties of the war and the South founds itself in social and economical ruin. The following twelve years, from 1865 to 1877, even though one may argue that Reconstruction for the South started as early as 1863 with the Emancipation proclamation, marked an era of reconstruction that contained many challenges: first, the reunification of this divided nation, second the conversion of the South, whose economy relied entirely on slavery and finally the integration of the emancipated slaves, culturally as well as politically. It was a time of transition from a belligerent conflict between the North and the South to a political one and a time of many changes. We may thus wonder to what extent the Reconstruction Era was a rupture in American history and paved the way to a unified nation? My argumentation will consequently fall in two parts: on the one hand I will demonstrate that the Reconstruction Era marks the end of a time and then I will show that the reconstruction is far from fulfilling its ambitions.
The main internal reasons for the decline were economic problems and political issues.The economic problems started when Inflation began causing people to go back to bartering as I was told by my fellow classmate’s website. These economic problems let urban life decline and for trade to be lost. My classmate’s website on the Roman Empire also informed me that there were political issues when Julius Caesar was assassinated which led to a 13-year civil war. The political problems which were mostly caused by power not being in one place for too long, and the economic problems were caused by inflation which made Rome poor, eventually led to the fall of the Roman
In 1965, economics in Indonesia was horrible. Production started to slow down drastically and imports and exports came to rest. It was then followed by the conflict for power between the army and the communist party in Indonesia also the case of the seven generals that was murdered by the communist party during Sukarno’s era. This case of murder had capped the political and economic chaos and brought President Sukarno and his guided democracy down on the 11th March of
With each evolving era there is a strong and independent woman leading a change. In medieval times there was Joan of Arc and in modern day America it was former first lady Michelle Obama. These women were fighters for what they believed would make the world a better place. Another leading lady who stood alongside Rosa Parks during the time where segregation was heavily present, was the incredibly talented Maya Angelou. This successful female author wrote a masterful poem during one of the most brutal times to be a black woman.
News of this was publicized in November 1969. This is when the tide began to turn; more and more frequently, the war was identifed as inhumane and unfair. A major cause of this shift in view was the My Lai Massacre. To make matters worse, on May 1, 1970, President Richard Nixon sent 30,000 American troops and 50,000 South Vietnamese troops across the Cambodian border.
Women are also deprived of basic human needs like health care, education, and entertainment. Afghanistan under the rule of the Taliban produced one of the worst human rights records in the world. They were involved in the 9/11 terrorist attack in the U.S. which triggered the war in Afghanistan. The war in Afghanistan has costed both the U.S. and Afghanistan billions of dollars and thousands of lives. If the war goes on, more lives of troops and civilians will be lost, and if the Taliban win the war, they will resume their oppressive rein in Afghanistan.
As a result, thousands are starving and becoming malnourished. It will continue if nothing is done. This famine has harmed human beings and has put them under stress. Thus, they have little food and are experiencing many hardships. The food security in Somalia has dropped substantially due to a famine that has caused thousands to die from starvation, if there is no aid given to these malnourished people, the country will break down in security causing people to be defenseless and at risk.
Somalia is a very difficult nation for foreigners to understand, it has come to be associated with famine terrorism and piracy. With the fall of the central government headed by Siad Barre, Somalia fell into political, economic and social turmoil. The country had experienced both military and humanitarian interventions throughout its lawless and chaotic 20 year civil war. Various scholars attribute one of the worst humanitarian catastrophe of the 21st century in Somalia directly disintegration of the Somali state as an entity (Brons 2001). However there has been not concrete research to verify these arguments, this research will therefore be trying to seek to answer whether there’s a link between the collapse of the Somali central government and the famine that affected the region exists?, and if it does, how the collapse of the central government contribute to that calamity to the scale that it lead to an international humanitarian
By that time Liberia was a torn-up element. It had been in two bloody civil wars that lasted for fourteen years. According to the guardian, the first civil war was from 1989 until 1997. 250,000 were killed, 1 million displaced and at least 25,000 raped. Poverty was a common aspect for all since everything had been damaged.
