An important figure in peacekeeping of Canada was Lester B. Pearson, a Canadian prime minister who reigned from 1963 to 1968. Although the concept of peacekeeping was evident before Lester B. Pearson, it was him who promoted for United Nations to establish an official peacekeeping force during the Suez crisis. He stated, “We need action not only to end the fighting but to make the peace... My own government would be glad to recommend Canadian participation in such
This came after the U.S. and Russia both invented atomic weapons over the past few years. In 1955 he met with major county leaders such as Russia, Britain, and French leaders to talk about nuclear weapons. One year later Eisenhower was reelected for a second term winning bigger than his previous election after he had recovered from a heart attack. During his second term he promoted nuclear weapons used for peace not war, as well as creating the U.S. Information agency and having Alaska and Hawaii become states. In 1957 he signed the Civil Rights Act and a Civil Rights Commission.
Planes with enough fuel were told to return to their airport of origin, and the rest was diverted to airports across Canada. Fearing the attacks may not be over and worried that other planes could be turned into “destructive missiles,” Transport Canada instructed NAV CANADA (the agency that handles air traffic control) not to redirect planes to large urban areas, such as Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. Canada was also upset because they lost 24 Canadiens in the Twin Towers attack, the youngest of these age 29 and the oldest 70. Canada 's economy also would have suffered because of the attacks as most of their supplies comes from the United States. Canada was a quiet leader in sending aid, special rescue units, and equipment.

There are several differences to note between the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War and the Canadian involvement in the Afghanistan War. The first major difference is that The United States had conscription during the Vietnam war, which fueled massive antiwar protests, some even leading to the death of protesters. This was not true for the Canadian troops heading to Afghanistan, Canada has an all-volunteer armed force. Yes, there were some protests against Canada’s involvement in the Afghan War, but these were much smaller and more infrequent than anti-Vietnam protests. Anti-Vietnam protests became escalated by the public 's discovery of several massacres of Vietnamese civilians, including women and children.
An explosion of protests resulted, including the Kent State Incident previously mentioned. In 1972, North Vietnam attacked South Vietnam. South Vietnam forces struggled on their own until the United States issued aid through US airpower- once again, becoming further involved in the war. Fighting continued through the next few months but as more and more antiwar demonstrations took place by those waiting for Nixon’s plan to follow through, negotiations were made to officially pull the United States out of the war. In January of 1973, the Paris Peace Accords were signed and the United States was officially withdrawn from the war in Vietnam.

In 1991, bin Laden went against the government’s orders, and he and his troops tried to take matters into their own hands; however, the Sudanese government decided differently. The government of Sudan had bin Laden return to Afghanistan five years later in 1996 due to the government pressuring bin Laden and his troops; therefore, the American forces defeated the government of the Taliban.

Around the 15th and 19th century some Indian emperors have executed several Shias Scholars and destroyed their sacred sites. In modern time, outsiders have exploited the division of the groups by using Sunnis to suppress Shias. The two groups fear each other, therefore as one group feels more threaten, the other reacts harder in response. Despite the tension, many Sunnis and Shias refuse to allow their differences to divide, nor bring hostility between them. According to Halpern “despite the conflict, every Friday over the past few weeks Shiites and Sunnis in Iraqi cities have come together in major squares throughout the country….they have gathered united, as one voice, in protest over the current divisive situation.
Canada entered the war not just as peacekeepers but as a strong police force acting in union with the American Forces to combat global terrorism, promote human rights, and help a country rebuild. Firstly, Canada helped annihilate terrorism at a global level in Afghanistan though its Joint Task Force Two (JTF2) Operation. Furthermore, Canada went into Afghanistan promoting human rights in hopes of putting an end to oppression in the Middle East. Finally, Canada helped Afghanistan rebuild into a stable, democratic and self-sufficient country. Ultimately, Canada 's participation in the war in Afghanistan has allowed it to become a strong police force that can function as soldiers of a global government through it peacekeeping

Recently, the Guatemalan president Jimmy Morales tried to remove a United Nations backed commissioner when they tried to investigate possible corruptions in his campaign. When repercussions were evident, the Guatemalan government actually voted to shield Morales from the consequences of his actions. Though most people may think of national level events (country A in conflict with country B over something) when speaking about sovereignty, it also plays a role at the domestic level too. The issue of the niqab law in Quebec during the past October, for instance, is a recent example. Recently, a law has been passed in Quebec (the Bill 62) which “prohibits students from covering their face in class.
As a former United States Army soldier I would have to say no, I believe that emotions and feelings ran high throughout the United States, so this gave our government away to invade the country of Iraq by implementing and tying them into terrorist activities which led up to September 11th. Just recently President Obama shut down operations in Iraq, however while shutting down operations based on public opinion he suspended then change the operational capacity within the country, this led to a new threat to the country 's region and the declining the stabilization of this country. Now we are back to square one president "Obama has urged Congress to authorize military action against terrorist who are actively cutting a swath across the Middle East," I do not believe that the use of force is necessary unless we know all of the facts,
By late 1967, U.S. forces had dealt serious blows to the communists, but the fighting continued unabated. President Lyndon Johnson launched a public relations campaign emphasizing that progress was being made in order to bolster public support. In the midst of this campaign, the communists launched the massive Tet Offensive on the Tet (New Year) holiday in 1968. Although American and South Vietnamese forces prevailed, the shock and scope of the attacks stunned the American public and convinced a demoralized Johnson not to run for reelection. Richard Nixon was elected in 1968 largely because he promised to end the war and achieve "peace with honor."
