The massacre consisted of mass murder by Japanese troops against the residents of Nanjing, the capital of the Republic of China, which lasted for six weeks. Chinese civilians and disarmed combatants were killed left and right (Document O). Eventually, the lead perpetrators were prosecuted and received the proper punishments. Japan led numerous attacks of extreme brutality on countries near and far. America was tuning into the disgust of the Japanese through propaganda.
Soon, terrorists with connections to Libya also began to attack Americans which caused relationship between Americans and Libya to deteriorate. As a result, America decided to down 2 Libyan warplanes in a military encounter with the US Navy. 200 US aircrafts dropped 60 tons of bombs on Libyan targets which caused 37 deaths and this caused the Palestinian group in Libya to kill 3 American hostages. Iran Contra Affair was another foreign policy under Reagan’s leadership.

Response: I agree with this statement because it 's too easy for people to blame a celebrity for all of society 's problems. What we should really be doing is looking at how to solve the problems and not who should be to blame. Thesis 3: People who consider themselves second amendment supporters are simple refusing to accept that the laws have to change as society changes. That law was written for a different time and must be changed as the world changes. Response: I disagree with this statement because the second amendment was written very explicitly that it shall never be infringed, and that every american has the right to own a firearm.
Introduction Prior to the Rwandan genocide, the Rwandan population consisted of some eight million people. In 1992, beginning the second week of April, some 800,000 ethnic Tutsi and moderate Hutu were killed – the majority murdered by civilian militias with the support of government forces. Over the next three months, Rwandans would experience the most accelerated, deliberate human cleansing of known history. The Rwandan genocide did not occur without warning. The violent collapse and subsequent purging of Rwanda necessitated multiple failures, exacerbated by both the domestic government and the international community (IC).
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.

Claim #3: The Trump Administration recently made a justifiable decision to engage in resistance against Syria because the Syrian government malevolently abused its power directly on its own citizens. Support #3, 1: The United States responded to the Syrian government killing dozens of their own citizens with a chemical weapons attack by launching a military strike on a Syrian government air base (Starr and Diamond). Support #3, 2: As a part of the retaliation, President Donald Trump ordered for the US warships to launch 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the air base where the warplanes originally delivered the chemical attacks on Syrian citizens (Starr and Diamond). Support #3, 3: Paradoxically, not only did Syria go against its own ban on chemical weapons, but it also violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention which outlawed the production, stockpiling, and use of chemical weapons (Starr and Diamond). Analysis #3: The Trump Administration is worthy to be praised for their actions because they took a brave action by resisting against the Syrian government.
Causes of the Cambodian Genocide The Cambodian genocide took place from 1975 to 1979; it is estimated that some two million Cambodians were systematically murdered by the Khmer Rouge and its followers (Power 90). In Alexander Hinton’s article, “A Head for an Eye” he recounts in details the experience of Gen, a survivor of the Cambodian Genocide. After the Lon Nol government was overthrown by the Khmer Rouge, the Communists began their witch-hunt in an attempt to identify and kill anyone who was associated with the former regime, as well as the educated, the Vietnamese, the Muslim Cham, the Buddhist monks, and other “bourgeois elements” (Power 101). During the investigation, it was revealed that Gen’s father was a teacher–this fact alone was
“ Though there are no exact numbers, the . . . estimates that tens of thousands were murdered, with a documented 5,600 killed by firing squads alone. Even more Cubans were killed by state forces when they tried to flee the country, which occurred during the 1980 Canimar River Massacre and the Tugboat Massacre of 1994.” Any person who kills others for his/her benefit is not a good person.
Prime example of this is the Purging of Stalin that saw more than one million citizens of the Soviet Union executed with a bullet to the head and the killing of over 800.000 people by order of Mao Zedong after the Communist Party's victory in 1949. Alas the public was not unmoved by the sheer number of people that saw an swift and unjust death and various organizations were formed that had the abolition of the capital punishment as their primary goal in their agendas. Following the change from authoritarianism to democracy, abolition was adopted due to political change. Among the nation-states of the globe, the majority has abolished the death penalty as a form of retribution. But not everyone has.
