official describing the decision to not intervene in Rwanda. The U.S. official is quoted as saying that, “it was a foregone conclusion that military intervention was not on the table for discussion; it was automatically concluded that the United States would not take part in stopping the Rwandan genocide.” Which showed that, all deaths are not the same. The emotionally effect that the genocide caused on the people of Rwanda was massive. During a 100-day period, the people were tortured and terrorized as they saw those they love die and feared the loss of their own life. According to Tom Andrew, it is estimated that nearly 100,000 children were orphaned, abducted or abandoned.
The tension between the three main ethnicities occupying Bosnia and Herzegovina was what helped spark the war. The three main ethnicities in Bosnia were the Muslims, Serbians (Serbs), and Croatians (Croats). What is thought to be the start of the violent tension between the three groups was the death of the communist dictator of Yugoslavia, which was one big country that now is broken up into a group of smaller countries.

Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction of an ethnic, racial, religious or national group that has brought many losses for human population through the whole history of the world. First cases of genocide had such reasons as territorial, competing and religious arguments. For instance, one of the first genocides is thought to be the Roman destruction of Carthage in 146 BCE that occurred due to religious reason and the competitiveness of these two superpowers. The history has seen many cases of genocide, but this social problem especially spread worldwide during the twentieth century which was even claimed to be the “century of genocide”. The number of such events outnumbered 20 and the number of people killed was nearly 160 million.
The people received justice because the overthrown government had many issues. The government orchestrated evil acts of terror that left many Egyptians living under fear. The occupation of Imbaba serves as the best example because in 1992, government forces occupied the town for six weeks.

(Polsby 21) This same technique can also be seen in Turkey. In Turkey many strict gun control laws were passed against most citizens of Turkey. The passed gun control laws allowed for the genocide of millions of Armenians once again unable to defend themselves. (Polsby 21) Gun control has led a terrible example across the world, and often results in the genocide of millions, as millions of citizens find themselves unable to defend against a tyrannical government. On the other hand, in countries that have refused to implement any gun control, have some of the lowest crime rates in the world.
Abstract The Rwandan Genocide consisted of the slaughter of over eight hundred thousand African people from April of 1994 until June of the same year. Conflicts, primarily economic and cultural differences, between the Hutu and Tutsi peoples forced the country into genocide. An entire country was separated by ethnicity as neighbors, friends, and family turned against each other. After the capital of Kigali was captured, the government collapsed and the genocide finally came to an end. Since then President Paul Kagame continues to run the country with a strong authoritative hand, but victims and perpetrators are working and living peacefully and the economy is seeing rapid growth.

When peace failed to come, Liberia spiraled into an extremely bloody civil war. Armon and Carl write that “the outbreak of the Liberian civil war cannot be explained by a single dominant factor. The war grew out of the domestic, socio- economic and political environment of the 1980s.” The civil war lasted for seven years and resulted in mass devastation, including 200,000 casualties and thousands of refugees. The war finally came to an end in 1996, and shortly thereafter, Charles Taylor was appointed president of Liberia. These few years caused damage to the society of Liberia.
