Here, again we see two instances where a group of people twists their religion to kill these people and cause terror. This doesn't just happen in the middle east, it happens everywhere. We have seen ISIS countless times in France, South American countries, even the U.S. ISIS wants to take government positions to justify these killings even more. They want these positions to spread this mass chaos, and to stronger their reasons. This is just one of the numerous reasons why religion should not be a position in the

Millions are killed in the take-over and during the regime as the Khmer Rouge attempts to kill off anyone who may have had education and anyone who may potentially work against it. At the same time, the journalists also appear to be invaders as they insert themselves into the ongoing events and try to take pictures and stories even after their countries have extracted themselves and they are no longer welcome. Towards the end of the movie, we learn that Pol Pot and the leaders of the Khmer Rouge are getting restless due to the Vietnamese attackers- this can be seen as invasion from the Khmer Rouge (the government in charge at the time) even though these attacks eventually help free the Cambodians trapped in the work camps and lead to the fall of the Khmer Rouge. Pran, the protagonist of the tale, too invades- although he is trying to free himself and is considered the protagonist, he is like a spy invading his
They were frustrated in the jail, so group of African American inmates rioted trying to escape, after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. The worst case in the documentary was the My Lai Massacre, where U.S. troops went in and destroyed the village, killing many women and children. “Americans didn’t want to be believe that these things occurred in the name of the American people and for the sake of freedom”, so it was something that was swept under the rug until journalist got a hold of it.

Similar to the Tsars before him, Stalin caused the death of anyone who opposed his way of ruling, especially the Kulaks. He violated the rights of the people by launching an extensive campaign on deporting ethnic groups that opposed his leadership. Stalin’s years of “great terror” through much unneeded purges caused him to more and more act as a “Red Tsar”. The only difference was Stalin was ruling under Marxist ideologies with communism being the end result as opposed to adherence to the Russian Orthodox Church. However, just like Stalin, Alexander II was very similar in that the secret police was at the centre of dealing with outside issues towards his power.

Just before the multi-party negotiations could resume in April 1993, violence once again took place that greatly affected the negotiations and the CODESA talks. On the 10th of April 1993, Chris Hani, an important leader of the ANC and the South African Communist Party (SACP), was murdered outside of his home. The gun that was used to assassinate Chris Hani was provided by a member of the conservative party. This had greatly added to the racial tensions in the country and this made black South African’s and ANC members even more critical of the white government and this impacted the negotiations greatly. Nelson Mandela had to give a speech on Chris Hani’s to keep the peace as many people feared a civil war after the death of Chris Hani (source 2) as he persuaded the militant ANC youth to be accepting of the negotiations so after his death the ANC youth were more critical of the negotiations and this led to more township violence which in turn, affected the negotiations and the CODESA talks even more.

Not only are they similar by means of monitoring and control over the public, they also both have nuclear weapons and a knack for ‘vaporizing’ people in order to maintain a controlled image.
