Introduction The Cuban revolution took place in 26th July 1953 and ended in 1st January 1959. It was caused by overthrowing the president at that time, Fulgencio Batista. It started when Fidel Castro led a group of rebels against the president of Cuba Fulgencio Batista. At first it started with a small group of supporters, then the group of rebels started to expand and raise awareness when Fidel went on a Propaganda tour, which then turned into a civil revolution. The group of rebels were unsatisfied with their dictator, and demanded freedom which slowly caused Cuba to be a communist country.
The government, weakened by years of poor management, was unable to protect its citizens nor did they have the ability to secure the country, another indicator of its fragility. RUF managed to control several regions and not only exploited the natural resources, but also raped, mutilated and killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. One of the external intervention missions, the 10000 strong Economic Community of West African States Monitoring Group (ECOMOG) peacekeeping forces from Nigeria, withdrew in 1999. Given the state of the then Sierra Leone government, the withdrawal of ECOMOG would have meant a sure failure of Sierra Leone, hence the government negotiated a peace agreement called the Lomé agreement with RUF, granting RUF significant political power and key cabinet posts. Additionally,
Third, the revolution started with monarchy and ended with monarchy; there were no changes in the form of government. In other words, the goal of the revolution wasn’t achieved. Overall, the French Revolution was an unsuccessful revolution because there was a hefty price to pay for an unsatisfied result. One of the most apparent failures of the French Revolution was the “Reign of Terror.” It was the bloodiest time of the French Revolution, with over fifteen thousand people executed by the famous national razor, the “Guillotine.” Marie Antoinette and Revolutionary George Danton were two of the thousands who were executed. One swift drop of the giant blade down on a person’s neck, makes their head roll.
According to Indochina Newsletter, Asia Resource Center (Special Issue 93-97), the U.S. government spent $350 billion to $900 billion on the Vietnam War. Not only was blood and money wasted but the news of violence weakened the American people’s faith and confidence in their governments. There was a widespread public distrust of the government. Taxes were increased and the people's morale was extremely low. The use of herbicides did not only destroy the Vietnam's natural environment, it also caused numerous health problems which lasted for years.
Meaning people were starving, having limited education, not being able to make money to support their families and their could be no uprise without the fear of being murdered. Without stories like that of Nyein Bulson, no one would take heed to the turmoil the people of Burma have suffered through. The government in Burma is so corrupt and the people there have had to suffer all these years. It is no surprise to anyone, what the British and other European powers had done to Southeast Asia, but it’s not widely known that even after European colonization Burma was still suffering intra-community issues. Being under total government control one minute, and not having a steady government the next must have really been challenging to the people of Burma.
In 1962, Park Chung-Hee became the president of the Republic of Korea. He repressed the political opposition, the personal freedom of South Korean citizens and controlled the press and the universities. He also introduced the Yushin Constitution in 1972, which increased the presidential power and created a virtual dictatorship. People were disappointed toward President Park’s rule and he was assassinated on October 26, 1979. After he died, Chun Doo-Hwan who was the general of South Korean Army became the new president.
As a result, there were mass killings of Tutsis by the Hutus – leading to a massive wave of refugees fleeing Rwanda, mainly taking refuge in Uganda, Tanzania and Zaire. They were denied entry back into Rwanda by the president Juvenal Habyarimana on the grounds that the country was over populated and there were no opportunities for the refugees economically (Outreach Programme on the Rwanda Genocide and the United Nations). Further problems were created in 1988 when the Tutsis formed a rebel army known as the ‘Rwandese Patriotic Front’ in Uganda. Its aims were to “secure repatriation of Rwandans in exile and to reform the Rwandan government, including political power sharing” (Outreach Programme on the Rwanda Genocide and the United Nations). On 1st October 1990 the Rwandese Patriotic Front, with a force power of 7,000, attacked Rwanda.
After one hour the battle ended with Magellan with a sword in his face, and his very few supporters dead. Although Magellan did find his way to get to the Pacific Ocean easier by discovering a strait. He was definitely not loyal to anybody but himself. The reasoning for me not willing to help Magellan when in trouble is because he honestly did not deserve anything he did or accomplished. If I was Ferdinand Magellan I would defiantly regret the past, and what the crew had to put up with
The second war was happened in 1999, there was a war that happened in Liberia because of the groups of rebels wanted to bring down and drive away the current president of that time, Charles Taylor. They wanted to oust him because Charles Taylor was funding the rebel acts in Guinea, Ivory Coast, and Sierra Leona, even though his source of money already had been cut off and he himself already was indicted by UN , and those countries were suffering because of it. The rebels were from two different ethnic backgrounds and were backed up by different three countries that were suffering because of Charles
Nelson finally decides what he sees as the terrible inevitability – taking up arms and start an armed revolution against the white injustice and subjugation. He justifies his turnaround by saying that for 50 years non-violence had not reaped any benefit and his people were losing lives. When the enemy showed no mercy, he decided to show no mercy too. He had lost faith and patience with non-violence. He became the head of the rebel group ANC and was then captured and
