Lebensraum refers to origins and policies of a form of settler colonialism connected with agrarianism that existed in Germany from the 1890s to the 1940s. The Nazis used this term to take lands away from Austria and Poland. Like the Nazis, the Ottoman Empire coveted lands that the Armenians occupied which was called Turkestan. The reason the Ottoman Empire wanted this land was due to it belonging to the Ottoman Empire at one point in its history, arguing that they were striving for their old empire. When looking at the Cambodian Genocide and its attempted acquisition of the Khmer Krom, we see the Khmer Rouge try to capture parts of the old Khmer empire.

There have been a number of effects on the everyday lives of Americans made by the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. First of all, United States troops invaded Afghanistan less than a month after the World Trade Center attacks to release al-Qaeda’s grip on the Middle East.

FB: The Taliban came into the country with their own ideas on how things should be done and how they felt they could make it better. ES1: Their ideas to make life better was not better in the eyes of people in Afghanistan. In a recent article Zachary Laub writes "...enforced prohibitions the Taliban deemed in-Islamic, requiring women to wear the head-to-toe burqa, or chardi, banning music and television; and jailing men whose beards it deemed too short." (Laub, 2014 p.2). ES2: In the novel The Kite Runner examples of this type of behavior is prominent when citizens get in trouble for cheering too loudly at sporting events.
There were an estimated 200,000 people who were killed between 1992-1995 in a genocide commited by the Serbs against the Muslims, and Croats in Bosnia. On top of this, another 2 million Bosnians were displaced from their homes and placed in dangerous environments. Three main groups fought each other within the country, Bosnian Muslims, Serbs, and also the Croats. This was a horrible and important genocide that killed thousands of people between 1992-1995. Like the Nazi’s cleansing Europe of it’s Jews, the Serbs aim was the ethnic cleansing of any Muslims or Croatian presence in Serbian territory.

Operation Oluja was undertaken after many years of unsuccessful efforts by Croatian political leadership and international peacekeeping forces to re-establish constitutional and legal order and security on the entire territory of the Republic of Croatia – as it was defined by the UN Resolution. Political and diplomatic means, agreements and settlements with representatives of local Serb population and the authorities in Belgrade, as well as several HV’s warning operations with limited objectives were to no avail. Political situation prior to Oluja was marked by the incapability of the UN forces to contribute to a political solution to the conflict in Croatia. Following the rebellion of the Serbian minority in Croatia and the aggression of the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) as a response to the declaration of independence of the Republic of Croatia from Yugoslavia in 1991, by signing the truce in January 1992, conditions were created for the deployment of the UN peacekeeping troops along the demarcation line. Unfortunately, the engagement of the UN forces did not yield any improvements nor did it resolve the conflict.
Following this, an agreement was signed by the Serb government along with the Croat to come into the settlement regarding the issue of a cease-fire in the year 1994 (Hanhimaki, 2015). Ideally, this followed after the intense war between the two sides in the years of 1992 and 1993 once Croatia had declared its independence. In fact, the year 1992 saw the conflicts intensify and even extend to Bosnia-Herzegovina in the midst of the same year (Guney, 2013). Following this, the body's mandate was extended to serve such regions since peace was essential in the whole area and this lacking. As a consequence, the UNPROFOR was supposed to exert its power to the regions of Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia (Army, Force, & Karadžić, 2013).

On the 6th of April 1994, Juvenal Habyarimana, the Hutu president who was on board his private jet, was assassinated when the jet was shot down near Kigali international Airport.1 The cause of the incident: Hutus blaming the Tutsis for killing the Hutu president, but it’s believed to be the presidents own supporters to orchestrate the attack. On April 7th, 1994, Rwanda started to report the first signs of genocide where the Hutus used radios to send out messages towards the Rwandan community.2 “Cockroaches”, and “Rats”, was such language used in propaganda to describe the Tutsis throughout Rwanda.3 Well over 800,000 Tutsis were murdered in the span of three months.4 The blame for the Rwandan genocide should not only be placed upon the United Nations and Hutus, but the Belgian government should be blamed for the genocide. The act of Belgians colonizing in 1918, to gain control among other western powers resulted in the loss of many innocent Tutsis lives. 5
