  • Environmental Scarcities And Violent Conflict
    991 words
    Conflict From Environmental Scarcity or Lust For Wealth In "Environmental Scarcities and Violent Conflict", Thomas F. Homer-Dixon writes about the possible conflicts that are caused by environmental scarcities, using three different hypotheses's to do so. I found the first hypothesis to be most compelling because I feel it is the most prevalent in the world today. The first hypothesis in "Environmental Scarcities and Violent Conflict" states that environmental scarcity causes simple-scarcity con...
  • Chocolates And Brother Leon And Archie
    1,035 words
    1. Robert Cormier wrote The Chocolate War. The copyright of the book is 1974.2. In the exposition of The Chocolate War, Jerry Renault, the freshman quarterback, was receiving constant blows from opposing players.

  • Our Role In The Korean Conflict
    701 words
    The Korean War, or more accurately, the Korean Conflict was quite obviously both a civil conflict and an international conflict. As I go forward in this discussion of the war, I will attempt to explain my theory on both separate ideas. Fundamentally, it is hard to have a civil conflict, that will not in some respect, impact a part of the entire world. The Korean conflict was a civil war (from now on I will refer to the Korean conflict as a war collectively) between two sets of the same people. T...
  • Inter Ethnic Conflict
    613 words
    The idea that inter-ethnic conflict has exploded since the end of the Cold War is somewhat of a misconception in my opinion. The idea that the number of ethnic conflicts has recently exploded, ushering us into a violent new era of ethnic "pandemonium", is one of those optical illusions that round-the-clock and round-the-world television coverage has helped to create. Ethnic conflicts have consistently formed the vast majority of wars ever since the event of decolonization began to sweep the deve...

The following is a full analysis of the conflict, which explains the background factors, which contributed to it. The Chechnya- Russia conflict, can be more understoo...
  • Internal Issues And Conflicts
    551 words
    The War of 1812 was not merely a battle against an external foe but stemmed from internal problems as well. The external enemy that the United States was facing was Britain, but that was not the most severe dilemma that they faced. The real problem that was occurring during this time was the internal struggle going on in the United States of America. These internal conflicts consisted of matters such as the issue of the north part of the country which was federalist did not want to go into war, ...
  • Minor Armed Conflicts And Wars In Order
    2,168 words
    Cold War My first inclination would be to answer the first question with a clear "YES". But come to think of it, the causes of war really have not changed at all, or at least very little. Rather than changes, there has been a shift in the causes. The cause of war which has dominated the last 50 years was the cause of ideology. However, due to the recent end of the Cold War, this cause of war, has significantly declined and is almost trivial. The causes of war have shifted from mainly ideological...

Factors that constitute total war 1) The percentage of the population that identifies itself with the war of its nation. i.e. the citizens feeling about the conflict, a just war. 2) The percentage of the population and resources that participate in the conflict, in terms of industrial, agricultural and military terms. 3) The percentage of people affected by the...
  • Birdie And Cole
    1,180 words
    What is war? Is it explicitly limited to an external conflict between two or more countries, or can it be a conflict that occurs within a person's emotions, thoughts, and beliefs? That question can be pondered by anyone for countless hours without any real sway to either choice, but there a few examples in literature that could prove the latter choice is the more adequate definition of what war is. Novels such as The Things They Carried, Caucasia, and Funny Boy are great examples of the war that...

  • Television Wars And Violence
    302 words
    Television Wars Desensitise Us Television wars desensitise us. The constant bombardment of brutal fighting on our everyday television sets undoubtedly desensitise us. Statistics show, that about 97% of New Zealand homes have a television set and more than half have more than one set. Considering that our news hours are filled with conflict from countries all around the world, these numbers clearly show that the majority of the New Zealand population is exposed everyday to television wars and vio...
