Both the holocaust and the North korean genocide are genocides. They both included mass murdering of over 1 million people. The Holocaust killed over 6 million Jews, 1.1 million children, soviet civilians around 7 million (including 1.3 Soviet Jewish civilians, who are included in the 6 million figure for Jews).Over 16 million people were killed in the Holocaust. The goal of the holocaust was meant to kill all Jews, Homosexuals, and disabled people. This was resolved by the russians gaining an
Firstly, the ambassador of Darfur did not seem to care that much about the genocide issue and it did not seem like he was going to do anything for his people in order to solve the problem. Why is that? Should Darfur replace their ambassador with someone else? What is everyone else’s thoughts on this? Do you think the ambassador does not care about the issue of genocide too?
1962, Mississippi Race Riots Over First Black Student Mississippi Race Riots in 1962 over the First Black Student James Meredith was viewed as a significant crossroads in the historical backdrop of social liberties in the United States.

In 1994, a small country known as Rwanda, located in Africa, was devastated by a mass genocide over a short span of time. This tragedy between the Hutus and the Tutsis occurred over a span of 100 days and had 800 000 to 1 000 000 fatalities. Although small in comparison to other genocides such as the holocaust, the damage, emotionally and physically, was certain. The two populations, the Hutus and the Tutsis had major conflict in previous years, this eventually built up, thus resulting in the Hutu people to enforce mass murder on the Tutsis. Over the years there is and was great controversy as to what the main motivation of the Hutu people was to start the genocide.
However this bill was shot down by the Federal Government, LePage's response was to threaten to scrap the food stamp program if these new regulations are not included. Many people on food stamps are also on Medicate. With people using their food stamps to by junk food that will increase their risk of diabetes and other diseases it makes sense to give guidelines as to what can be purchased.

As former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali said in History’s “The Rwandan Genocide”, “The failure of Rwanda is 10 times greater than the failure of Yugoslavia. Because in Yugoslavia the international community was interested, was involved. In Rwanda nobody was interested.” So why did no one step in? According to “A Short History of the Rwandan Genocide”, it is believed that since Hutu moderates were killed in the early stages, countries believed the conflict to be more of a civil war rather than a genocide. Another possible reason is that world powers realized it was a genocide but didn 't want to pay to stop it (Rosenberg).
Attributing the cause of the genocide to the Rwandan war is expressed by one key factor. Firstly, that it is civil war that creates the platform and rationale for genocide. This follows the construction of out-groups and in-groups where leaders create grievances towards the out-group. However, this understanding neglects the main factor which fuels the transmission of genocidal ideology from the regime to the masses: the already existent and longstanding institutionalised racism of the Rwanda society which was endorsed under the guise of colonialism and obedience to authority, rather from the occurrence of
The Turkish government said that there was no genocide. History has an article that explains that the government in Turkey denies all accusations because they do not classify it as a genocide (History Staff). They are also allies of several countries which may make people hesitant to acknowledge the genocide. Because of this, many people have forgotten it. There were also very few people to record the Dzungar Genocide that took place.

President Nixon had secretly bombed Cambodia, without Congress or the citizens of the United States knowing. With these bombings Nixon had killed innocent civilians of Cambodia. This classified secret was kept in the White house for almost a year until there was a leak of information, in which the American people had seen the actions the President had taken without the proper checks and balances. (Billofrigthsinstitue.org) Because of this, the United States Congress made a resolution to limit the powers accessible to the President for war and military action. This resolution was called the War Powers Resolution.
The Armenian genocide, also known as the genocide of 1915, happened during World War One. It is labeled as the Armenian genocide because approximately 1.5 million Armenians were killed, even though other minorities like the Greeks and other Christians were also massacred. The genocide of Armenians began before 1915. From 1894-1896, hundreds of thousands of Armenians were wiped out and forcefully removed from their domiciles. When the Europeans powers threatened to take action the massacres stopped.
After the genocide, Canada marked April 7 as a Day of Remembrance of the victims, but all their empathy towards Rwanda seemed to appear only after the genocide ended. Canada received, but did not act on, multiple detailed messages and warnings about the killings happening. Canadian attention was not drawn to what was happening in Rwanda, and many networks like CNN were not in Rwanda or reporting the events. A Canadian military Major, Brent Beardsley, said “Africa and Rwanda were not a priority,” and “The government never let on it had information,” referring to Canada 's lack of action during the genocide. Out of all the countries that could have helped Rwanda during their time of need, Canada’s trademark of being peacekeepers made them seem like a country that should have provided large amounts of assistance.
The people in Rwanda are stuck between a rock and a hard place right now. There are over 1,000 of them in Paul Rusesabagina 's hotel. They are both Hutu and Tutsi refugees. Everyday the refugees live in fear of the Hutu Interahamwe coming to kill everyone of them. The Hutu rebels are committing a mass genocide.
In 1993, The United Nations attempted to help the victims of the Rwandan civil war by using a peacekeeping operation called the United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda, also known as UNAMIR. However, when the UN force started to experience casualties in April 1994, they quickly abandoned the effort. Although the UN stopped helping Rwanda, France quickly provided aid. The creation of small safety zones protected fearful Tutsis from the violence. With the war finally coming to an end, the UNAMIR regained strength.
It was like no one cared about millions of people getting slaughtered. After WWII people has said never again. Well it happened again, no one did anything about it. For that the US and UN should have at least said some kind of sorry. President at the time, Bill Clinton, actually went to Rwanda to apologize.
