Warfare Tactics The Army Rangers have many warfare techniques. They have successfully utilized the art of Guerrilla Warfare since World War II. A guerrilla is defined as “one who engages in irregular warfare esp. as a member of an independent unit carrying out harassment and sabotage” (Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary. Pg.
In fact, when questioned about the names of his flight squadron members, and he gave the Vietnamese names of the offensive line of the Green Bay Packers (423). The torturers can be easily fooled because they cannot reliably verify the accuracy of the information they get from a torture victim. Therefore, the problem of unreliable intelligence deals a big blow against torture. Many nations, including the United States, made torturing illegal, but if America tortures a soldier from other nations, they can do the same back to America (424). If American troops held another nation’s soldier captive, the enemy may feel they have the right to do the same.
This was the type of warfare that the American’s were not use to fighting in. they were use to conventional wars were you could see the opposition, not hiding in the forest. They also used booby traps that were everywhere so a lot of American troops got injured. However, the failure of the American tactics could be classed as another reason that the American forces pulled out of Vietnam. The operation ‘search and destroy’ failed, as the idea of it was to go into villages and interrogate the villagers and torch their homes.
In some villages the were “piles” of body’s. Guerrilla warfare was a very effective tactic used by the Vietcong as the Vietcong had no uniforms the US army’s could not tell if they were civilians or not. And the North had used this before with the French and Japanese so was proven very effective. The Vietcong also used tunnels to keep supplies and even were used as hospitals, wells and body traps. Defoliation was the American “counter force” to nature as the North used the forest to fight the US and SVA.
On the other hand, Dori was the only one who tried to save me and stayed with me, until I was safe away from those Wargs, and he nearly got killed by the Wargs saving me. So, I suppose he isn't as malevolent as the others… especially Thorin! I think, if we ever get to the treasure, he might keep it all for himself! The Dwarves might be mean to me, but I can't just leave them here to be killed by those giant spiders when I can save them! How I wish I stayed in my safe, cosy hobbit-hole, instead of letting Gandalf persuading me to leave it.
They were unsafe because there were no regulations on how they were built. Some tenements didn’t even have windows or fire escapes. As a result many immigrants were caught and killed in fires (OK). Some groups tried to change the living conditions for the better. Immigrants worked in sweatshops that were dangerous.
The Hmong were forced to remain on the run from communist groups as those that were identified for helping the US were thrown in reeducation camps. The Hmong sought refuge in Thailand, but the journey was difficult as they had to travel at night and be silent while avoiding mines and dealing with the sick. Mothers would give babies small doses of opium to keep them quiet along the way. Thailand was not as accepting of the Hmong as they would have liked. Some of the Hmong took refuge in the US, especially those who had worked with them, while others remained.
Perhaps there were too many ready-made alternatives in the local drug, hardware, and general stores; perhaps our feeble artistic response was a measure of the insufficiency of the challenge we felt. In any case I do not remember that we did any more with the metal than to shape it into crude seal rings with our initials or pierced hearts carved in them; and these, though they served a purpose in juvenile courtship, stopped something short of art. The dump held very little wood, for in that country anything burnable got burned. But it had plenty of old iron, furniture, papers, mattresses that were the delight of field mice, and jugs and demijohns that were sometimes their bane, for they crawled into the necks and drowned in the rain water. If the history of our town was not exactly written, it was at least hinted, in the dump.
The discovery was due to the constant search and excavation of the inside of the Liang Bua cave. The bones when found initially were described to have the strength of “wet paper” so archaeologists had to dig with caution due to the delicate state of the bones. The remains of the partial skeleton were found at a depth of 5.9m. Stone tools and the bones of species such as dwarf elephants, giant rodents, and Komodo dragons were discovered in the same sediment deposits in Flores, which contained the Skeleton. Due to the size of their brain scientists believe that perhaps they didn’t make the tools and that I was the homosapiens.
Believing in the Governor Green’s promise to miners in enforcing mining laws, Scanlan’s worked on working over beyond more that all the other appointed inspectors. While inspectors chatted and took advantage of the position non-effectively, Scanlan kept to himself, reports were long and made numerous recommendations then other inspectors. Although he made many notions of his site being the worst of all mines in the district, also making recommendations of the cleaning and sprinkling of transport roads, the use of clay and stop the use of tamping of shots with coal dust, the mine to be shut down for maintenance and the list goes on and on. There were some alternatives that could have but not addressed such as: * Reasons why a method such as Rock Dusting wasn’t implemented as discussed in the case study. Rock dusting is the applying of pulverized stone to the walls and roofs of the passage ways, which would have killed the explosions by throwing a cloud of rock dust that is incombustible into the air with coal dust.
