In 1997, a new president was designated, and the war declared over. This did not satisfy the RUF, and an uproar began, dragging the war on for another four years. War-ravaged Sierra Leone had trouble maintaining order, many still unclear what type of government they were living by. For years, the government of Sierra Leone had “made repeated commitments to... ... middle of paper ... ...er while fighting a war against their own people (members of the RUF). Whilst the Civil War in Sierra Leone now seems archaic, the RUF still competes in a battle for control over the diamond-producing regions of Sierra Leone.
The indigenous Mayan people were being forced to work for the companies fields. They also were tortured by the Ladino’s a part European who thought they were better than the Mayans. During the “Ten Years of Springtime” the presidencies of both Juan Jose Arevalo and Jacob Arbenz Guzman made the situation better for the Maya people but the United Fruit Company didn’t let that happen for long. Another cause of the war was the United States President watched Guatemala closely and decided that their actions were a major communist threat.

Amin Dada had a reputation for excessive brutality and Macbeth was very brutal in the killing of the traitor Macdonwald and "unseamed him from the nave to th' chops." (1.2.22) Both people also took over their countries by force. However, Macbeth was at first unwilling to kill the king ("We will proceed no further in this business"(1.7.31)) and persuaded into it by Lady Macbeth, was never found out, and appointed to the throne by the lords of Scotland. Amin Dada took over via a coup d'état and appointed himself president. Amin Dada was also more accepted by his country at the verybeginning of his reign than Macbeth was.
President Clinton began badly on Haiti. With his continual indecision and lack of any real back bone to the policies which were decided upon. "First, he gave charge of his policy to Bush administration holdovers who over the previous year had made clear their intent to construct in Haiti a version of democracy that left the president in exile but with an Aristide - appointed prime minister and cabinet. This tortured scenario was doomed to failure because over two thirds of the Haitian people equated democratic government with the return of Aristide and no arrangement that excluded his presence could
In his speech, Lincoln explained that our nation was fighting the Civil War to see if we would survive as a country. Although his initial intensions of the Civil War were to maintain the Union of our country, in the end the Civil War focused on ending slavery. It is this focus that is believed to have been the reason for his assassination.

They made this happen because collectively as a nation, the black majority of Rhodesia decided to all come together and help fight off the British Colonialist that had taken their land. They fought for the rule of the government of Rhodesia and got rid of Ian Smith and his Rhodesian Government and had the ZANU-PF take control. Furthermore, Robert Mugabe became the new president of the country and led to making the Nation stronger than ever before. That stable point in their government enabled them to rule their people and lock their interests internally helping Rhodesia transition into the country it is now known as, Zimbabwe.
This research paper will take a close look at the Sierra Leone civil war, the “blood diamonds” that funded the rebels, and how they effected the environment and its inhabitants. Compounding difficulties erupted in Sierra Leone in March 1991 when conflict in neighboring country Liberia fell across borderlines. (Fyfe, 2013) Joseph Momoh responded by deploying troops to the border region to repel the National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL). Sierra Leone’s army would also come under attack by the Revolutionary United Front (RUF), led by former Sierra Leone army corporal Foday Sankoh. Both the NPFL and RUF would work together to overthrow the Sierra Leone government and would drag out a long brutal civil war.
At that time the president of Vietnam was Diem, disliked by the most of the population, especially Buddhists which were persecuted because of their religion (Diem was catholic). In protest, Buddhist monks marched the streets and set themselves on fire. The same year the coup against Diem was planned and it was supported by the US government. In one year's time, President Johnson had gained the support of the congress to send troops to Vietnam. He claimed that those troops were meant to stop the spread of communism.
Eventually, ... ... middle of paper ... ...f people a day, the men and women in charge of their safety did not even reach a consensus to regard the situation in Rwanda as genocide. Had they see it that way, the efforts made to protect these people might have been a little bit more convincing. In truth, the mandate was also very vague and left a lot decision making up to the individual peacekeeper, allowing a acceptance of walking away or even “fleeing” as to not interfere with local affairs. The UNAMIR mission can easily be regarded a disappointing failure, not accomplishing the majority of the tasks that they were assigned. In the cases of the political figures that requested the protection of the peacekeepers or requested back up, several of them did not even live to see the next day as well as their families.
This left the government in the hands of the military; they held election in 1990. Aristide won but was overthrown in 1991, but returned to Presidency in 1994 because of the United Stated and the United Nations. Civil unrest followed until 2004, when the UN Stabilization Mission was sent to Haiti. The current President is Michel Martelly and the Prime Minister is Laurent Lamothe. The UN is not scheduled to leave until 2016.
