After the first world war the leaders of europe came together to discuss the boundaries of europe. British rule decided to separate ireland into two sides. North Ireland was created when the british government of Ireland Act in 1920 divided Ireland into two areas; the Irish Free State and the Northern Ireland Roman Catholics, who made up around one-third of the population of Northern Ireland, were largely opposed to the separation. The British took over , but only after many revolts and riots against them from the people of ireland. In 1969 the IRA (Irish Republican Army) was formed. They were a Catholic Irish nationalist group that used guerrilla tactics like bombings and assassinations to oppose British rule and oppression in Ireland. Their main goal was to fight the british that took over their home. The IRA would Fight using guerilla and terrorist tactics including bombings, assassinations, kidnappings, punishment beatings, extortion, smuggling, and robberies. But over time the IRA became more of a dangerous militia then patriots defending their home.
During arduous combat operations coinciding with a high OPTEMPO unit cohesion may flux toward a detriment of mission success. This report will focus on the 56TH Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) in order to address the critical leadership problem. In addition, focus will center on relevant facts and assumptions that led to the critical leadership problem and rectify the issues. Furthermore, a new ABCT vision will be published in order to restructure the organizational culture toward a unified purpose and an increase in esprit de corps.

Over the course of history, the United States has a reputation of getting involved with other nations to sort out disputes, arguments, conflicts, wars, etc. One specific example of U.S. Military Involvement is the 1980 El Salvador Civil War. The El Salvador Civil War was a civil war that lasted from 1980 to about 1992. The war slowly arose due to little uprisings in society, promises to improve economy and lifestyles that were never fulfilled, and the push of communism beliefs onto the people who didn’t believe in them. The U.S. Military would not get involved unless their is a violation of human rights, or if mankind is being put into harm's way. The U.S. involved themselves in the Civil War of El Salvador because they had enough evidence and support for specific claims, had the appropriate authority, and fought for an outcome that suited the needs of humanity.
The Real Irish Republican Army (RIRA) is a splinter group of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) that uses sabotage, subversion, and guerilla warfare to express its opposition to the terms of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. This agreement basically recognized that the majority of the people within Northern Ireland wished to remain a part of the United Kingdom. It also recognized that a large section of the people of Northern Ireland, and the majority of the people of the continent of Ireland wanted a united Ireland. For the most part, the Good Friday Agreement brought an end to the struggle between unionists and nationalists during the “Troubles” (an unconventional war spanning from 1968-1998 in Northern Ireland between British security forces, republican and loyalist paramilitaries, and civil rights groups). To understand how the RIRA came to be, you have to know a little about the history of the IRA. Specifically, on how the members regarded violence as a means to a unified Ireland without British involvement. “In December 1969, the IRA divided into “Official” and “Provisional” wings. Both factions were committed to a united Irish republic, but the Officials eschewed violence after 1972, whereas the Provisionals, or “Provos,” carried out various attacks and assassinations, attempting to compel the British Army to withdraw from Northern Ireland. In the wake of the Bloody Sunday shootings by the British military in January 1972, the Provos’ ranks
They also called for reform of the humanitarian response and development assistance, to enhance resilience and promote long-term solutions. Also, the US supports developmental assistance over military aid. ThinkAfricaPress states “Western governments look set to increase their military support for Sahelian and Saharan countries. But they do this based on incorrect assumptions, misguided objectives and questionable methods. At best, this trend will cost a lot of money and lives, and achieve little. At worst, it will lead to a worsening spiral of violence, producing the very outcomes Western powers fear.”
The National Liberation Army (ELN) was established July, 4th 1964 by college students and a group of radical, Catholic clergy that were inspired by the revolution that took place in Cuba (Stanford, 2012). Since its inception, the ELN have had an ongoing rivalry with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia (FARC), due to a constant power struggle between the two groups.
History has been shown to repeat itself, and if we don't learn from it, we are doomed to repeat it. We have watched many genocides happen within the last decade, some of which the U.S. has intervened, and in some cases where they have not. The United States should not intervene in foreign countries for humanitarian reasons because the U.S. may lack investing the amount of troops and resources necessary to make the intervention successful ; that doctrine will be abused unless there is a self-interest at stake.
With the conflict within Africa becoming more prominent, President Walker and his staff weighed the idea of intervention. Being a neoconservative, intervention of tyranny and pushing democracy across borders is very common (Gee, 2017). Feeling a creeping possibility of impeachment, the President and his staff pull the trigger (Powell, 2011, p. 1). On the morning of May 25, 2030, the news broke that the United States had invaded the region of Lake Chad and Greater Sahel.
The 56th Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) is considered among the best maneuver brigades in the Forces Command three years ago. I know this because I was a member of the 56th ABCT then. During this period, our leaders want to lead and our soldiers were highly motivated. In addition, the morale across the brigade was high with strong supportive family atmosphere. Today, this is no longer true. My review of multiple assessments, surveys, and reports regarding our brigade couple with my interaction of leaders across the brigade confirmed that our brigade has changed in the wrong direction. The environment for our brigade is toxic. My vision is to return the 56th ABCT to its glory days when it was considered among the finest maneuver
After Lakwena’s exile, Joseph Kony began to lead the movement. Joseph Kony claimed to be Lakwena’s cousin(War Child, Linton House). Without a clear objective Joseph Kony rebranded the movement from the Holy Spirit Movement to the Lord’s Resistance Army(LRA). Joseph Kony intended to take over the Ugandan Government and run the country based on the Christian ten Commandments. Kony’s movement quickly lost support, so he started abducting children to increase the popularity and dominance, thus starting the Human Rights Violations. The Children once kidnapped would be turned into soldiers (boys) or sex slaves(girls).
There has been desperate pleas for peace between the Ugandan government and the Lord’s Resistance Army. Every time efforts for peace has been offered Kony shuts the efforts down. While government efforts have weakened the army’s numbers they still have not been stopped. Efforts such as the Ugandan People’s Defence Force has taken various steps to stopping this resistance but has not successfully stopped the group from attacking villages. The army has spread over the years in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, and the Central African Republic. The United Nations has taken steps to protect and aid civilians but unfortunately in the DRC, the UN does not have the resources to protect civilians. Another problem is communication, an attack might happen but won’t get word until weeks after the event. The International Criminal Court has issued warrants for Joseph Kony but the warrants have failed to arrest him and his
In December 1960, the National Liberation Front, normally called the Viet Cong, developed to encounter the South Vietnamese rule. A civil war exploded for regulator of South Vietnam, although Hanoi required to bond the country further down its own communist guidance. The Additional Indochina War began in serious with the US pledge to stop the communists as of overrunning South Vietnam. In spring 1961, the government of John F.

This paper briefly describes the delayed U.S. involvement in Somalia. The three major operations conducted under the United Nations mandate in Somalia, between 1992 and 1994, in the effort to stabilize a country torn by famine and civil war. Then, it focuses on the operations conducted by the United States Task Force Ranger (TFR) between August 26, 1993 and October 4, 1993, in Mogadishu Somalia. Followed by how limited coordination with the United Nations and the ineffective use of intelligence assets led to a costly tactical victory with heavy casualties.
The British Army during the American War of Independence served for eight years in battles fighting around the globe. Imprisonment at the Siege of Yorktown with a recipe of France and US force eventually led to the loss of the Thirteen Colonies in eastern North America Not only that, the Treaty of Paris robbed Britain many of the profits attained in the Seven Years' War. However several victories in other places meant that much of the British Empire remained unbroken. The army suffered because of deficiency of peace spent and useless enlistment in that period since the Seven Years' War. These circumstances had left it in a wrecked state at the burst of war in North America. To counterbalance the British, the government
