The Vietnam War lasted for 20 years (1955-1975), more than 2 million lives were lost. 3 million people were wounded, and thousands of children were left orphans. The war destroyed both North and South Vietnam. In my opinion, war is, unnecessary and useless. We must strive towards peace and harmony not violence.
Thousands of people lost their homes and many people were made orphan and widows. War brings hatred and spreads falsehood. The Vietnam War was a long, costly armed conflict that pitted the communist regime of North Vietnam also known as “Viet Cong” against South Vietnam and its ally The United States. During this period more than 3 million people including 58,000 Americans and more than 1.5 million Vietnamese civilians were killed in the Vietnam war. After some time, the anti-war protest began to increase which ultimately ended with the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973.

It's understandable to see journalists vent out. It's their community that has been hurt. But for you and me, I think neither Charlie Hebdo matters, nor the 139 children. Just to be sure, there are 2000 people, mostly children and women, dead in Nigeria at the hands of Boko Haram. And there are many dying in Syria, Sudan, Congo daily, without a cry being raised for them.
Rwanda and 100 Days of Bloodbath: Lessons for Nigeria By: Adeyinka Abdulfatai TOMORI Sometime in the night of 6 April 1994, an incredible incident happened in Rwanda; the plane flying both the Rwandan President, Juvénal Habyarimana, who was from the majority Hutu and his Hutu president of Burundi, Cyprien Ntaryamira was shot down as it prepared to land in Kigali, the two presidents died as well as every other person on the plane. Responsibility for the attack was disputed, with both the RPF and Hutu extremists being blamed. This assassination set off a violent reaction, resulting in the Hutus ' conducting mass killings of Tutsis and pro-peace Hutus, who were portrayed as "traitors" and "collaborationists". This was the beginning of the popular genocide in the small Africa country of Rwanda. It was the culmination of longstanding ethnic competition and tensions between the minority Tutsi, who had controlled power for centuries, and the majority Hutu peoples, who had come to power in the rebellion of 1959–1962 and overthrown the Tutsi monarchy.
Some of the general features, characteristics and consequences of internal conflicts - wars waged after the World War II are: (a) millions of victims, especially among the civilian population; (B) a high level of brutality and cruelty; (C) genocide; (D) ethnic cleansing; (E) the mass of refugees; (F) an extremely difficult humanitarian disposal of innocent victims, etc. The largest number of victims in internal conflicts occurred in Rwanda in 1994. Officials of the UN Secretariat had failed to submit to the Security Council a timely warning of extremist plans to kill thousands of members of the Tutsi and moderate members of the Hutu tribe. When the genocide began, the number of "blue helmets", who were engaged in that country, was reduced to only 270 people, and the UN and the Security Council, due to pressure from the USA, failed to respond. The result was about 1,000,000
Once again, Katrina resulted in over two thousand deaths, damaged approximately ninety thousand square miles, and cost over one hundred and forty-five billion dollars. Many survivors blamed the federal, state, and local government for the extremely slow response and lack of resources to handle such a tragedy. Thus, the US President authorized the Department of Defense to create DSCA, which authorizes the US Military to work in conjunction with FEMA in response to national disasters. This action allowed the federal, state, and local governments to develop an action plan known as the National Guidance of Preparedness, signed into law in August 2011. The NGP is considered doctrine for the Active and Reserve Military’s role in assisting the state and local government’s ability to prepare, respond, and recover the affected areas.
In 1967, the attempt of Biafra (Southeastern Brazil), separate yourself from the rest of Nigeria was received with violence and a civil war that lasted three years. Somewhere between one and two million people lost their lives, many were homeless, while others were left to die of hunger after the rest of the country, cutting the supply of food for the southeast region of Nigeria (Smith, 2005). During this period, many employees educated and intellectuals who dared to challenge the government fled the country for fear of persecution. "Today, it is estimated that the United States is home to approximately 10,000 "Exiled Nigerian Academics' " (Tettey, 2003:4). The discovery of oil in the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria in 1950 ushered in a new era of greater political instability.
