England and France are at war over dueling claims to the Spanish throne, and the conflict has spread to the North American colonies where the Mohawk tribes have become aligned with the French. On February 29th, 1704, the war comes to the small New England town of Deerfield. The town is brutally attacked by a Mohawk raiding party and set on fire. Some of the residents are killed and scalped, some escaped, and others are captured and taken back to the territory of New France in what is now Canada. The target of the raid was Deerfield’s prominent reverend, John Williams, who was planned to be traded for the French captain Jean Baptiste Guyon, who was currently being held by the English.
The Party press merely declared that the eight generals were accused of espionage on behalf of Germany and Japan, anti-party conspiracy, cooperation with Trotsky, and plotting the territorial dismemberment of the USSR. Finally there is the Trial of the Twenty One (including Bukharin) in March 1938. The defendants were charged with the usual combination of treason, espionage, diversion, terrorism and wrecking as said in (Scales, Diann, "Stalin and the purges"). One of the men on trial here was head of the NKVD, Henry Yagoda. The NKVD was how stalin was able to arrest so many people.
In the two weeks leading up to the official end of World War II, September 2, 1945, Igor Gouzenko was stealing documents from the Soviet Union’s embassy in Ottawa, Canada. The documents that Gouzenko was stealing were all proof of a Soviet spy ring in Canada. Each day he bent the corners of a few documents that had stolen information on them, most commonly the information that Canada had on the atomic bomb, to mark them as ones that he would take. On September 5, 1945, Gouzenko stuck 109 documents underneath his shirt and walked out of the embassy right under the noses of the Soviet Union’s security agents, or KGB agents, at the embassy. After stealing the documents, he went to the Ottawa Journal to leak the information to the public.

While the world was focused on battle in Europe, the Ottoman Empire began a systematic campaign to eliminate the Armenian people within its borders. Ottoman authorities created a propaganda campaign claiming that Armenians were a threat to national security, in part because of some Armenians’ support of Russia in the ongoing World War. Armenians were arrested, tortured, and killed. The women and girls were raped and some were kidnapped into a life of sexual servitude.

Terrorism is the climate of fear that a political group attempts to instill in a society in order to create insecurity among the general population and often do this using acts of violence. The FLQ robbed banks, bombed landmarks and Anglophone symbols such as mailboxes, the home of Montreal 's mayor Jean Drapeau, and the Montreal Stock Exchange, and kidnapped the British Trade commissioner James Cross but it wasn 't until the kidnapping of Quebec 's Minister of Labour Pierre Laporte that Trudeau would finally have to turn to drastic measure, which was calling in the War Measures Act. In 1914, Canada adopted the War Measures Act, which assigns emergency powers to the federal government when it perceives a real or suspected threat of war, invasion, or insurrection, which in an act or instance of rising in revolt, rebellion, or resistance against civil authority or an established government, and this act also suspends people 's civil rights.

The force and bloodiness with which Pinochet and his followers pursued their ideological enemies profoundly shocked the Chilean people if not the whole world. Thousands were detained. Many were tortured. Many more simply disappeared. In the aftermath of the bloody coup d'etat of September, 1973, rape of detained women by their military jailors was common.
Pinochet was accused by the Spanish magistrate BaltasarGarzon of authorizing or knowingly allowing torture, disappearance of people, taking them hostage and murder in the decades following the 1973 violent overthrow of the democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende. Citizens of various nations including Chile, Spain and the U.K. were victims of his crimes. These crimes were alleged to have formed part of an international conspiracy to track
“Instances of violence springing forth from trivial rivalries are…” seen throughout the novel (Kovis). From the bombing of the enemies, to General Dreedle requesting Chief White Halfoat to hit his son-in-law, random acts of violence from competition can be seen all over the novel. All of them have been provoked in one way or another of competition. Some other consequences that are developed by competition are how it has “…caused humans to go to war with one another—killing each other in the process” (Kovis). War is the catalyst to all of the competition between the characters, as well as many other problems.
Born in a period of rapid change for Canada and the territory surrounding it, he was the voice of the minority people during the resistance in Red River. He helped create a province that had rights that were best for his people and in doing so, solidified their future. He was a rebel and a madman, trying as always, to help the Métis during the North-West Rebellion even as his mental instability began to take hold of him. Until the day he was hanged so controversially, Louis Riel was a man of religion, of politics, and of belief for his culture. His actions influence Canada even today.
Prior to the September 11th attacks, the group had been linked to several more attacks including attacks in Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Turkey, Algeria, Israel, the United Kingdom, and many more places. (The Editors of Encyclopedia Britannica 2) All of these attacks trace back to the main mastermind of the group: Bin Laden. He attacked so many more places besides the U.S. which shows his overall threat to the whole world. And even though he always claimed to follow the “purest form of Islam”, many experts insisted that he was covering up the faith’s edicts against killing innocent people. Islam draws boundaries on where and why holy war can be waged but Bin Laden declared the entire world as fair territory.

This event caused Britain and the United States to declare war on Japan, and Germany and Italy declared war on America.
The Toronto 18 case also known as “The Battle of Toronto” that was named by the terrorist group back in the year 2005.
