One of Montoneros’ very first actions was the 1970 kidnapping, condemnation, and execution “in the name of the pueblo” of Army general Pedro Eugenio Aramburu. From that point on, violence was their trademark. Yet, in the film, no survivor, militant, or sympathizer defends the use of violence as a viable answer or tactic. In this sense, an air of self-critique hovers over Montoneros, even if the film never really stages a true political
In fact, a factor that contributed to a large extent to Castro’s rise to power can arguably be Batista’s government. Batista’s government was the main cause of instability in Cuba from 1952 up to 1st of January 1959. Batista seized power and created a dictatorship. Moreover, adding to this dictatorship, his government was also corrupted. This factor led to Castro’s rise to power as the Cubans did not want to live under such government which used violence as a mean to control the population.
Not to mention that sun god worshipers are virgins, which means zero birth rate (Schreiber). On another note, Garcilaso de la Vega, a Spanish soldier and poet, said he would “kill everyone if someone defied a sun god” (Schreiber). One of the many reasons the Inca empire is on a mountain is because Machu Picchu was their defense mechanism against the war hungry Spanish. In the same fashion, the Inca army was one of the most powerful at the time, “defending themselves against neighboring kingdoms” (Meinking). The Incas in Machu Picchu had such a powerful army, most thought that nothing could get in their way.
intervention in the Bosnian COnflict. Unlike the Chilean coup, the U.S. took a role in the Bosnian conflict due to humanitarian concerns, and teamed up with other countries in NATO, as to de-escalate the problem. The Bosnian conflict emerged after the split of Yugoslavia, and the Muslim Bosniaks wanted independence. Their plea for independence was rejected and thus a genocide in Bosnia began, with over 80,000 Bosniak casualties, making it the largest genocide in Europe since the Holocaust (United States Holocaust Museum). The United States took part in the war after humanitarian issues became a concern, with the casualties of Bosniaks, and NATO joined them.
The wars of independence in Latin marked the end of Spanish dominance in much of the Americas. While those rebellions were successful, there are stories of previous revolts that did not end with independence from Spanish rule. A prime example of these less successful uprisings is the Tupac Amaru Rebellion in the Andes during the late 1700s, in which the Kuraka leader Jose Gabriel Tupac Amaru led an uprising against the Spanish authorities in retaliation to forced labor and taxes imposed upon the Indigenous population. Those oppressive conditions were caused by the Bourbon reforms, a set of policies implemented by the Spanish crown on its South American colonies in order to keep a tight grip on the colonies and prevent British aggression in the region.
According to Robert Hoag article Armed Humanitarian Intervention, humanitarian intervention is defined as “The use of military force to address the extraordinary suffering of people, such as genocide or similar, large-scale violation of basic of human rights, where people’s suffering results from their own government’s actions or failures to act.” (par. 1) In other words, this kind of interventions purpose is to protect, rescue or defend people from violation or abuse, which is cast upon them by the government. This intervention can be executed by states or International Organizations. Furthermore, humanitarian interventions are a zero-sum game and occur without the approval of the offending state. On this essay, based on cosmopolitan doctrine, I will argue why humanitarian intervention can be justified, DUE to the protection of human rights, and states responsibilities.
The Liberian conflict contained features of class distinctions and struggle for political power, which later became factors in the national conflict. While some of these policies were contrary to liberal democratic theory, in which the ultimate power rests with the people, these policies allowed the ruling elite to maintain political and economic powers by excluding the majority of the Liberian population, the native Africans. These practices led to the 1980 military coup and later became one of the conditions responsible for the persistent national conflict in
However, a permanent Court was not established - two events that shocked the world’s conscience in Yugoslavia and Rwanda necessitated immediate action from the United Nations which was tasked with creating ad hoc tribunals to prosecute persons responsible for serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in the respective countries. The process of setting up the tribunals, long court delays and operational expenses of the tribunals, among other reasons, made the U.N. Security Council less willing to set up similar tribunals culminating in the eventual establishment of the International Criminal
Military coups started to take place when politicians showed illegitimacy and corruption. But the military governments were not exactly good too. I am writing this piece to compare Ayub Khan’s era and Bhutto’s era. But to do that it is essential that all the social, political and economic aspects are considered with due regard. Only after analyzing all these aspects can we decide which era benefited Pakistan the most.
We namedcalled this round of military attack from government army the February 24th coastal area incidents. After studying the whole process of the February 24th coastal area incidents, we noted that it was different from the military operations of the Indonesian army against our revolutionary arm forces at the border area. It made us suspect that it had its political agenda judging from the strategic deployment and its tactical operations of the Big Net Operation which was coordinated by the Special Branch of police. Therefore, this military operations had a very complex presentation. During the fight, both side had some very illogical and unimaginable actions that deserves special attention and serious study.
