Somalia

1993 - The UN flees Somalia

United Nations Operation in Somalia II (UNOSOM II) was the second phase of the United Nations intervention in Somalia, from March 1993 until March 1995. UNOSOM II carried on from the United States-controlled (but UN-sanctioned) Unified Task Force (UNITAF), which had in turn taken over from the ineffectual United Nations Operation in Somalia I (UNOSOM I) mission. All three of these interventions were aimed at creating a secure enough environment for humanitarian operations to be carried out in the increasingly lawless and famine-stricken country. The UNOSOM II intervention is well-known for the Battle of Mogadishu and the resulting events portrayed in the book Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War, and its associated film Black Hawk Down.   On October 3, 1993, Task Force Ranger raided a hotel in Mogadishu in which Aidid was thought to be hiding. What ensued was the longest, bloodiest and deadliest battle for US troops in Somalia. In what later became known as the Battle of Mogadishu, eighteen US soldiers were killed. Images of their dead bodies being dragged through the streets were broadcast on television stations all over the world, horrifying and infuriating the American public.

Somalia, formerly known as the Somali Democratic Republic, is a coastal nation in East Africa . It currently exists solely in a de jure capacity, which can be described as anarchy. Somalia has no recognized central government authority, no national currency, nor any other feature associated with a remotely-established nation state. De facto authority resides in the hands of the governments for the unrecognized entities of Somaliland , Puntland, and other small rival warlords. Intermittent civil war has been a fact of life in Somalia since 1977. In 1991, the northern portion of the country declared its independence as Somaliland ; although de facto independent and relatively stable compared to the tumultuous south, it has not been recognized by any foreign government. Beginning in 1993, a two-year UN humanitarian effort (primarily in the south) was able to alleviate famine conditions, but when the UN withdrew on March 3, 1995, having suffered significant casualties, order had still not been restored. Yet again another secession from Somalia took place in the northeastern region. The self-proclaimed state took the name Puntland after declaring "temporary" independence in 1998, with the intention that it would participate in any Somali reconciliation to form a new central government.

Armenia: economic blockade - poor people

Armenia is a landlocked mountainous country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Situated at the juncture of Western Asia and Eastern Europe,] it is bordered by Turkey to the west, Georgia to the north, the de facto independent Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and Azerbaijan to the east, and Iran and the Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan to the south. A former republic of the Soviet Union, Armenia is a unitary, multiparty, democratic nation-state with an ancient and historic cultural heritage. The Kingdom of Armenia was the first state to adopt Christianity as its religion[13] in the early years of the 4th century (the traditional date is 301).[14] The modern Republic of Armenia recognizes the Armenian Apostolic Church as the national church of Armenia, although the republic has separation of church and state.[15] Armenia is a member of more than 40 international organisations, including the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the Asian Development Bank, the Commonwealth of Independent States, the World Trade Organization, World Customs Organization, the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, and La Francophonie. It is a member of the CSTO military alliance, and also participates in NATO's Partnership for Peace (PfP) programme. In 2004 its forces joined KFOR, a NATO-led international force in Kosovo. It is also an observer member of the Eurasian Economic Community and the Non-Aligned Movement. The country is an emerging democracy and is currently integrating with the European Union in many spheres as the Armenian government sees European integration as a priority for Armenia. Armenia will become an associate member of the European Union very soon   Nagorno-Karabakh is a landlocked region in the South Caucasus, lying between Lower Karabakh and Zangezur and covering the southeastern range of the Lesser Caucasus mountains. The region is mostly mountainous and forested and has an area of 4,400 square kilometres (1,700 sq mi). Most of the region is governed by the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, an unrecognized, de facto independent state established on the basis of the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast within the Azerbaijan SSR of the Soviet Union. The territory is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, although it has not exercised power over most of the region since 1991. Since the end of the Nagorno-Karabakh War in 1994, representatives of the governments of Armenia and Azerbaijan have been holding peace talks mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group on the region's status

Berlin, 1920's: Demonstration - protest in the streets - May,1929

Berlin, air shots In January 1919 the leftist Spartacus-rebellion is put down bloodily. Free corps troops abduct Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg on January 15th and kill them at the “Tiergarten”. On March 13, 1920 parts of the “Reichswehr” (empire’s army) overthrow their break-up as ordered by the “Versailler Vertrag” (Versaille agreement) and proclaim the rightist conservative Wolfgang Kapp imperial chancellor. A general strike organized by SPD and KPD leads to the collapse of the Kapp-Putsch. In October of 1920 7 cities, 59 country communities and 27 property districts are being suburbanized to Berlin by law and the city is divided into 20 districts. The population is now 3.8 million, the size 878 square kilometers. Berlin becomes Europe’s largest industrial city and turns out to be a cultural metropolis in the Twenties. Artists such as Otto Dix, Lionel Feininger, Bertolt Brecht and Arnold Zweig and Nobel Prize laureate Albert Einstein live and work in Berlin. In 1923 inflation is at its peak level. In 1924 the „1. Große Deutsche Funkausstellung“ (first big German radio exhibition) inaugurates on the fairgrounds. In 1926 the first “Grüne Woche”(agricultural exhibition) takes place. In August of 1928 the debut performance of “The Threepenny Opera” by B. Brecht occurs in the theater at the “Schiffbauerdamm”. About 150 daily and weekly papers are released in the city. The global economic crisis seizes Berlin in 1929. There are 450.000 people jobless in February.
