On May 5th 2006 a representative from the Sudan liberation movent and a representative from the Sudanese government signed a peace treaty. It was ment to be as a method of finally ending the genocide in Darfur. However even with the peace treaty signed the genocide in Darfur continued (Daly). The attacks on the people of Darfur gets more worse every single day. In a single attack the combination of the Sudaneese army and the janjaweed 60,000 peoples lives were changed forever (Hueschen).
Long after Abraham died, there was famine in Canaan. So the Hebrews moved to Egypt where there was plenty of foods and water. For first few years, it went fine, but later on, Egyptians used them as slaves to build two great new cities. Later, a leader called Moses came and asked Pharaoh to set the slaves free, however, he refused. So god sent 10 horrible plagues.
After facing apocalyptic war destruction, a new nation arose from the remains of what was once North America: Panem. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, not only exposes the struggles due to the overpowering Capitol of Panem, but also looks into humanity itself. How could something so cruel go unopposed and even enjoyed? Surrounded by 12 districts, the Capitol started an annual event, known as the Hunger Games, to remind everyone of their defeat in the war. Each district offers a tribute, one boy and one girl, anywhere from age twelve to the age of eighteen.
Never has our support for a war started so high and sunk so low. As the nation debates a military strike in Syria, it's natural to wonder how Afghanistan — which began as a righteous fight Americans said they were ready to wage for as long as it took — came to this.
In 1966, the dream of flourishing democracy was diminished when a series of massacres occurred, inter-country arguments came about, and a military coup started the first of a series of military governments. As a response to this take over, the Ibo seceded and declared the independent republic of Biafra. This secession began a civil war that lasted for almost 3 years. Nigeria won the war and the military government controlled both regions.

The Vietnam War (1954-1975), commonly referred to as “Americas longest war” (however, no longer true to this day), was one of the most poignant wars in American history. For about fifteen years, North Vietnam (Democratic), fought against the American-supported South Vietnam (Republic). The US withdrew troops out of the war in early 1973; however the Vietnamese continued fighting for an additional two years, eventually leading up to the dwindling of South Vietnam under the hand of the North. The US failed to achieve their objective of securing the North from falling under the rule of a communist government. A nation familiar to victory underwent their first major defeat, which would haunt the lives of Americans for centuries I was privileged

Joy Bassett English 102 April 4, 2011 Research Paper Women and Children of Darfur—Basic and Mental Health Needs The Darfur region has been under siege both by neighboring countries as well as the Sudanese government. They have cut off all attempts at restoring Darfur to a settled country. This civil war that has lasted for over 20 years saw a short reprieve in January of 2002 when a ceasefire was reached between the two sides. The conflict at hand started in 2003 and is increasing at an alarming rate. It is causing damage to both the mental and physical welfare of the population of Darfur.
Estimates of Iraqi military deaths range up to 100,000; coalition forces lost about 300 troops. The war also caused extensive damage to the region's environment. The Iraqi regime subsequently faced widespread popular uprisings, which it brutally suppressed. A UN trade embargo remained in effect after the end of the conflict, pending Iraq's compliance with the terms of the armistice. The foremost term was that Iraq destroys its nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons programs.”The 21st century was quiet with wars until the attacks of September 11th happened.
Liberia has been an independent country since 1848, making it the oldest African republic, however it is known for its long running, and disastrous civil war in 1990s. Liberia emerged from its second civil war in 2003, and it is still undergoing extensive reconstruction. Much of the country was bombed and therefore many buildings had been destroyed and abandoned during the two civil wars. With less than one hundred medical doctors and three hundred certified midwives, there is dire need for more trained health professionals. Maternal mortality rates in West Africa are amongst the highest in the world.
