2 days later, von Trotha wrote to the Chief of Staff: “I believe that this nation as a nation must be exterminated… I prefer for the nation to disappear entirely rather than allow them to infect our troops with their diseases.” After the defeat of the Herero, the Nama rebelled against the Germans, but von Trotha and his troops quickly shut them down. On April 22, 1905 von Trotha sent a message to the Nama, “The Nama who chooses not to surrender and lets himself be seen in the German area will be shot, until all are exterminated. Those who, at the start of the rebellion, committed murder against whites or have commanded that whites be murdered have, by law, forfeited their lives.

When the Vietcong entered the embassy there was a stand off fight for about six hours in complete darkness. I really hope all the American troops in the embassy and around Saigon are safe now. I heard that we were able to stop the Vietcong from gaining control and also that U.S. soldiers were able to end the fight. I am very proud of all of the U.S. Soldiers, and Marines that have helped to stop the Vietcong from gaining control of the embassy. I also understand that many Americans are shocked by the attack in Saigon, they all

Initially, the Fascist Guardia Civil (the Fascist Army) arrive at her village to kill all supporters of the Republicans – hence the killing of Maria’s father. Other supporters of Maria’s father are killed, including Maria’s mother, who was not explicitly supportive of the Republicans, but shouted “Long live my husband”14 before she was shot. The presence of the Guardia Civil provides a more official, detached and “orderly” nature to the initial violence. Indeed, Maria describes the Guardia Civil “leaning against their rifles” and “waiting to shoot more”15. The imagery of the Guardia Civil “leaning against their rifles” suggests the normalization of violence in war, and thus by extension the detached and ritualistic nature of the executions.

The ones that did not have the sense to escape Bosnia while they could were found and capture.
When the monster was shot by the father of the little girl he had saved from the river, he stated that, “inflamed by pain, I vowed vengeance to all mankind ( Chapter 16, Par. 19).” At this point in the novel, we can somewhat agree that the monster has lost all faith in humanity. He will now start to become the monster that everyone fears. However, if we look closely at the monster’s reasoning behind his actions, we are able to notice that he was only frustrated at his present state of being, in this case a bullet wound. Not only that, but also how he has been rejected couple of times in the novel by society and even by his own creator.
‘How dare they kill his men!’ he thought to himself. Captain Kelso, Alpha Company’s CO, went from conservative and reserved about committing his Company to entering the box canyon.

Growing up in America we are taught to love and support our troops. Many people even feel that our troops, can do no wrong and they protect our liberates , but at what cost ?
