Another area of this paper I want to mention is the lack of help Bosnians received during this war torn time. The U.N. did not want to intervene till, in my opinion, it was too late. This is touched upon in each of the materials covered. 1993, the United Nations (UN) Security Council declared that Sarajevo, Gorazde, Srebrenica and other Muslim enclaves were to be safe areas, protected by a contingent of UN peacekeepers, which we read about in “Safe Area Gorazde” which we know that was a joke in its self
THIRD GENEVA CONVENTION Third Geneva Convention was signed on July 27, 1929 at Geneva, Switzerland. It was made to protect the human rights of Prisoners of War (POW). These laws apply from the moment a combatant is imprisoned until the POW is released. The main point of this Convention was to protect the Prisoners of Wars from physical and mental torture. Because of this law, torturing to prisoners was illegal and wrong on an international level.
Complete universalism cannot be applied in the case of the military. The influence of relativism can undermine human rights, but is acceptable if used for the right reasons. In the matters of safety and national security, relativism can and should be applied to the rights of those sworn to protect. In the issue of displaying religion through traditional garb, civilian peoples should enjoy the right universally, while national security forces and active military should be restricted. Civilians have the privilege and duty to display their culture and religion towards the purpose of obtaining universal acceptance for religious freedom.
A thorough assessment will protect patient who request euthanasia for the benefits of others. A patient who seek for euthanasia does not use him/herself as means, but as ends to respect his/her own humanity. Furthermore, God as a benevolent will not allow a person to suffer which endorse the purpose of euthanasia – to end suffering. Therefore, voluntary active euthanasia should be legalized in the United States.
But while the United States had a responsibility to investigate and punishing acts of genocide. They would not even call the millions of act genocide, they did not investigate, and they did not punish the Hutu people responsible for the deaths of many tutsis and moderate hutus people.

America was not effective in stopping and helping prevent genocide because during the Holocaust America decreased the number of immigrants that were allowed in the country twice. The United States also took three months to investigate and join the war.
Countless innocent lives were ruined by this choice by American military leaders. It is questioned why the bombs were dropped at all, much less why they were dropped where they were. Many think that if the bombs had to be dropped, the US should have chosen less civilian populated areas. Leahy was named as Chief of Staff of the army and navy to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1942 and was useful in this position in all the Second World War, and continued under President Harry S. Truman. In relation to the bombings he said, “It is my opinion that the use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan.
To make apparent the fact that America was an isolationist country, several policies came into effect. The first of these policies was known as the Good Neighbor Policy. This policy was first initiated by Herbert Hoover but formalized by Roosevelt. It stated that the United States rejected the right to intervene militarily in the... ... middle of paper ... ...ng the night, continuous flashlights were shone on them to keep watch on them.

The US citizens actively supported its nation’s participation in ceasing the crisis in Somalia only until the death of American soldiers and thereafter demanded the operation be terminated (Wengraf, 2011, p.118). If the safety and protection of those suffering from violations of human rights is not the core motive during mediation, then the intervention is not humanitarian whatsoever, but merely a war on a sovereign state. Without a political or economic benefit, it becomes very difficult for governments to employ its limited resources in order to fulfill the needs of individuals in foreign states. Though the international law orders the security of human rights beyond national boundaries, it fails to impose an established duty.
R2P is responsibility to protect and includes the idea of sovereignty in international law. The right to protect is a notion that every nation must protect its citizens form disasters like humanitarian intervention and natural disasters. Often times that notion is not something that benefits society. War is not a means of right to protect and it does not bring peace for the humanity. When Weiss says that “Over the last decade, we have witnessed not too much but rather too little armed force to protect human beings”, he is stating that armed force is not a means to protect human being.
The man who developed its charter and who died from exhaustion after his own country, the United States, refused to ratify it in the senate . On November eleventh, 1918 an armistice was declared in Europe. The President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, saw this as an opportunity to form an international organization of peace. The league was brought forth to provide security against future wars. However, the league did not fulfill the hopes of it's founders, it did not enforce the Versailles treaty, and did not protest injustices.
