World War One was a war of bloodshed and suffering that left Europe devastated after the war (History Learning Site, 2000). Woodrow Wilson, stated that The Great War was the war to end all wars (Sturgeon A., 2009). At the end of World War One, Woodrow Wilson came up with the Fourteen Points which was a peace plan to prevent all future wars (Sturgeon A., 2009). Unfortunately, not all of its recommendations were part of the final agreement known as the Treaty of Versailles (Bolotta A., Hawkes C., Jarman F., Keistad M., Watt J., 2000). The Allies wanted to take revenge on Germany by humiliating them for the cause of World War One (Sturgeon A., 2009).
World War I was resolved to an extent with the Treaty of Versailles, but it was not entirely settled. This is clear because World War II was a result of World War I. The assassination of Franz Ferdinand and his wife was definitely the most significant cause of the calamity that is World War I. Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro- Hungarian throne, was simply visiting Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Unfortunately, a secret Serbian society known as the Black Hand awaited the Archduke’s arrival. This nationalist group targeted Ferdinand due to the feeling amongst Serbians that once appointed to the throne; Ferdinand would uphold the persecution of Serbs inhabiting the borders of the Austro- Hungarian Empire.
The church assembly convened in Prizren in August 1997 criticized the activities of the Serbian special forces as well as of the Albanian KLA. As for the KLA aim of independence for Kosovo, they warned that this "would immediately produce large scale instability in the whole region, resulting in a disastrous multiethnic war." The church urged that ethnic Albanians would be able to find a satisfactory status in a "democratic Serbian state." They recognized that this ideal was far from the Milosevic regime. By 1998, the conflict was in full force.
Finally, we will identify and conclude immediate and long term effects of the war from the U.S in terms of material, civilian life, strategy, finance, and so forth. Just as pre-revolutionary governments hint at subtleties before creating a climax within itself, wars start from their own. After the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, the July Crisis of 1914 followed suit. This was the diplomatic conflict that stemmed from the major powers of Europe that led to war. Primarily, Austria-Hungarian sent and ultimatum to Serbia stating that the “Serbian government would have to accept an Austro-Hungarian inquiry into the assassination” and “Suppress all anti-Austrian propaganda and take steps to root out and eliminate terrorist organizations within its borders” ("Austria-Hungary issues ultimatum to Serbia."
The Bridge Betrayed portrays from a human perspective assault on Bosnia and the resistance by Bosnians. It shows how the genocide was motivated and justified through the manipulation of the mythology of Kosovo which culminated at the 600th anniversary passion play of Kosovo, the remembrance of the death of Prince Lazar--portrayed as a Christ-figure, fighting the Turks at the battle of Kosovo in 1389, the "Serbian Golgotha." Slobodan Milosevic and Serbian religious nationalists, including the leaders of the Serbian Orthodox Church, worked to militarize the Kosovo story. Through exploiting the powerful symbols of Kosovo, Milosevic came to power, overthrew the governments of Kosovo, Montenegro, and Vojvodina, broke apart Yugoslavia, and carried out genocide in Bosnia, and then Kosovo. The Bridge Betrayed also demonstrates the activities of Croat religious nationalists in destroying non-Catholic culture and communities throughout Herzegovina and especially in the Mostar Region, culminating in the deliberate destruction of the ancient bridge that symbolized the bridge of cultures, religions, and peoples in Bosnia throughout the centuries.
This essay will differentiate whether the events that took place in Bosnia between 1992 and 1995 are to be considered as a genocide or a civil war. In the aftermath of world war two many Balkan states including Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia became part of the federal republic of Yugoslavia . Following the death of longtime Yugoslav leader, Josip Tito in 1980, many Yugoslav countries grew in terms of nationalism and the desire for the regarded countries to become independent. The mid-1980’s saw the rise of Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic who brewed the discontent between the Bosnian Serbians, Croatians and Bosniaks. In February 1992 Croatians and Bosnian Muslims voted for Bosnia’s independence, the Serbians boycotted this referendum therefore the referendum did not reflect the views of the whole population.
In WW1, the terrorist attack of a Serbian nationalist caused the ignition of flames that were set across Europe. The Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary led to the July Crisis. A crisis in which, Austria sent an Ultimatum to Serbia, with requirement to be followed. Serbia accepted most but not all of Austria’s demands. Serbia’s decline of the Ultimatum led to Austria-Hungary declaring war on the Serbs.
The U.S. not only issued a boycott, Carter also pressured the Soviets to back out on the Afghanistan war, by cutting off their trade supply of the goods they needed, such as grain and technology. When an international coalition suggested that the nations that were boycotting send athletes to go to the Olympics under a neutral Olympic banner, President Carter threatened to revoke the passport of any U.S. athlete who attempted to leave to go compete.

This is a complicated issue because the Muslims couldn’t fight back the Bosnian Serbians. If no one helped the Muslims they would have been exterminate in the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Ching 8).

The reasons for that is because the Bosnian Serbians wanted to kill all of the Bosnian Muslims (Ching 8), NATO, Internat... ... middle of paper ... ...le believe that genocide just like this one will happen again.
