The goal of this paper is to explain why the international community did not intervene to prevent Srebrenica's massacre. In the following lines it will be reasoned that the intervention was not possible because the countries that sponsored the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR) were reluctant to the use of force. This lack of determination to use "all means" in the so called "safe areas" like the Bosnian Muslim enclave of Srebrenica during the summer of 1995 explains ultimately the killing of around 8000 male that were supposed to be protected by the Dutch soldiers participating in the UN strategy in the former Yugoslavia. When the United Nations was created in 1945, the use of force in the case of a threat for the international peace was already provided in the Chapter VII of UN Charter. Although it was included and passed by the members of the organization, the UN was conceived as a tool for peace, and most of the countries expected from the UN peacekeeping and not peacemaking.
Introduction George Tenet played a pivotal role in working with the CIA to removing the Taliban from Afghanistan and seeking out Bin Laden. The failure of not finding weapons in Iraq had forced him to resign from his position. CIA leadership went into a major shake-up during President Clinton’s second term. President Clinton appointed George Tenet as the Director of the CIA mainly because he was the only one that could be confirmed. President Clinton was not really a person that wanted the CIA to be involved in any covert operations or wanting to make world transformations and this made Tenet an important person to Clinton.
However, bobby Kennedy had become passionately anti-war and publicly opposed the war from January 1966. Johnson privately insulted ‘Nervous Nellies’ who disagreed with him about Vietnam, calling one senator a ‘prick’, Senator Fulbright ‘Senator Halfbright’ and Bobby Kennedy ‘spineless’. Johnson considered the Kennedy-McNamara friendship dangerous. One reason why McNamara ceased to be secretary of defence is, that he wanted to decrease the fighting for the U.S and hand over the conflict to South Vietnam. In an early November 1967 memo to Johnson, McNamara's recommendation to freeze troop levels, stop bombing North Vietnam and for the U.S. to hand over ground fighting to South Vietnam was rejected outright by the President.
c. There were toxic waste, such as radioactive material, and heavy metals such as mercury and uranium. d. According to the UN the Somalia Government is in a civil war and has no control over where to dump the waste. Companies are paying the Government to dump the toxic waste. 2. Inquiry a. I don't think the story was made as a headline in the news, because the American government might have been able to do something about thins problem a long=g time ago.
People are still dying and villages are still being destroyed. The question then arises as to “what is being done about it” and “is there being anything done about it?” The current Sudanese government continues to ignore what is going on in Darfur and refuses to take responsibility for its actions. They have not only ignored the problem but disrupt any actions or investigations that are ordered by the international community. There has been a lot of talk among both the international community as well as the United States on what to do about the conflict in Darfur. On April, 2006 the UN Security Council passed sanctions on high ranking members of the Sudanese government accusing them of war crimes against the Darfurian people.
The documentary, Fog of War, allows some insight into the choices and decisions that were faced by former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. I believe McNamara’s worldview has and continues to persist that America has a duty to act on behalf of the world community and that stability between and within nations is paramount to national security. It is this worldview that was the basis for his strategy throughout the Cold War. Previous administrations had committed the US to assisting Vietnam, but during Kennedy’s years Vietnam fell into further conflict after the coup in 1963. McNamara’s advice to withdraw military personnel prior the coup was no longer an option as instability in Vietnam posed a threat to national security.
The first mini method that applies to the agenda is called Bets and Odds. This method calls for a question: What odds will you give that the presumption proves correct? This question is what our agenda is completely made up of. Odds of inerrancy which the state must take into consideration, because no matter what method of voting there will always be margins for errors, but if we repeat the method enough times, we will eventually come out with the correct answer. When asking yourself this question it puts the state on the honor system.
I chose an article from the Journal Of Current Issues In Crime, Law & Law Enforcement the discus the history of homosexuals in the military and the events leading up to the repeal of the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy. “Early in the 1992 presidential campaign, then-candidate Bill Clinton commented that, if elected, he would "lift the ban" on homosexuals serving in the military.” (Burrelli, 2010) “Existing policies had been in place since the Carter Administration and, historically speaking, gay, lesbian, and bisexual (same sex) behavior had not been tolerated in the military services.” (Burrelli, 2010) The only change that happened was the start of the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy during President Bill Clinton’s presidency. The issues of the administration’s concern where based around good order and discipline in the ranks. Not asking if a new enlistee their sexual orientation opened the door for gays to serve
The German confederation was formed after the Vienna Settlement in 1815. During the 1860’s and 1870 Bismarck came into power and led Prussia in working with the German confederation to ascend in power and unify the confederation into a country. The German country would then be led by Prussia, with Bismarck in power. By 1871, this goal was eventually achieved after many contributing factors. The wars in which Prussia fought were undoubtedly significant to the unification of Germany, but however, I feel that it was not the sole factor that contributed to the unification of Germany.
Throughout the better part of the 1950′s, Eisenhower’s national security strategy insured that there was no military superpower confrontation. Because Eisenhower had doubts that a “limited war” would remain such, his over-all national security policy, called the “New Look,” was based on the unstoppable nuclear striking power of Strategic Air Command. During this period of relative peace, Democrat political opponents and social-science civilian theorists were in constant chorus that the New Look Massive Retaliation was simply too risky for the country and the world. In spite of the Massive Retaliation doctrine’s success in preventing conflict between the U.S. and Soviet Union, in 1961 President Kennedy and his civilian social-science theorists rewrote the rules of war, conceiving and implementing a replacement doctrine they dubbed “Flexible Response” to counter client proxy warfare. It was at this point that we completely departed from the strategic thinking that had won World War II.
