Cambodia, a southeastern Asian country, was under the rule of prince Norodom Sihanouk since its independence from France in 1953. Cambodians lived in prosperity, and were self-sufficient under a “Buddhist socialist” government, but this peace was interrupted by the Vietnamese war (1955-1975) in its neighbor country. Although the prince tried to keep his people unaware of the war, by 1969 the United

The history of recent years in the Indochina conflict has been an eventful one. It will exhibit to the eyes of the future student some of the most remarkable instances of a ruthlessness and indifference to common humanity.

Introduction War or conflict is a part of the mankind’s world. Although nobody likes war but it still exists as a certain fact with various appearances and characters. In the 21st century, the phantom of the war and terrorism become a truly threaten to international community. In Vietnam, there is no terrorism or religious war.

However, Vietnam is facing to many unforeseen risks that directly threaten against the security and national defense as well stability and development of Vietnam.

Since the end of the Cold War, the government of Lao PDR (GoL) promoted internal resettlement of indigenous ethnic minorities from remote highlands to lowland areas and along roads as an effort to make the delivery of government services such as health care and education more cost efficient. Though the government considers resettlement a voluntary choice on the part of the village, the government implements incentives for villages to resettle such as healthcare and disincentives for villages to remain in the highland such as destruction of agriculture as an attempt to encourage resettlement. But, internal resettlement had a devastating impact on the health of the relocated minorities and the healthcare promised by the government was inadequate and in some places nonexistent. To promote rural development, the Lao PDR government incentivized the resettlement of ethnic minorities from the mountainous highlands to the lowlands as a way of improving the minority’s access to health care, but suppressed immune systems suppressed from malnutrition and exposure to malaria ultimately increased mortality among those who resettled.

Written Assignment: Unit 2 IMF Intervention in Thailand Clinton MacKillop University of the People Written Assignment: Unit 2 IMF Intervention in Thailand Clinton MacKillop Introduction During the late 1990s, the world, especially Asia, faced economic crisis. In May, 1997, Thailand was hit especially hard. Due to multiple factors, foreign investors decided to pull their money out of the Thai economy causing the Thai government to eventually devalue their currency (Laplamwanit, 1999). This paper is not focused on what caused the crisis; rather, it examines the actions the International Monetary Fund (IMF) took in attempting to help Thailand recover from its disaster as well as the unfortunate consequences of doing so.
The symbolic-interactionist approach might look at the same scenario and derive a different answer for the presence of UXOs in Laos. This approach might focus less on the inequalities (monetary discrepancies) of Laos and the United States and rather, focus on the interactions of these global entities. The symbolic-interactionist approach is a micro-level analysis of situations; it provides a “close-up focus on social interactions” (Macionis, 2009, p. 15). This approach might see the war as a result of the symbols that people have used for centuries in each participating country. The usage of these symbols and the meanings attached to each would be less familiar to the opposing sides. The war, then, might be a result of misunderstandings rather than severe social inequalities. Even the casualties that have resulted from the presence of UXOs in Laos might be reduced to misunderstanding of symbols – not knowing what a landmine or cluster bomb is – and a result of symbolic interactions – inadvertantly stepping on one or picking it up resulting in an explosion.
