The Vietnam War was a battle fought between democracy and totalitarianism. It was idealistically, rather than reality-based. Perhaps it was intended to help South Vietnam, which desired freedom achieve it. Even though the Allied forces won all the major battles, they lost the war! One of the reasons may have been that the Vietnam War never seemed to end. Another reason may have been that fact that the motives were lost somewhere among the 58,000 flag-draped coffins that came home.

RWANDAN GENOCIDE: The Unspeakable Evils of Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide in Rwanda

by Dr. Julia Sanders

RWANDAN GENOCIDE – The Unspeakable Evils of Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide in Rwanda

There are few crimes more heinous than murder, ending an innocent human life is an unforgivable act that’s consequences cannot be taken back. And yet, there are occasions where murder is taken to a new extreme in the form of genocide. In 1948, a group called The United Nations Genocide Convention was founded and as the experts on genocide, they define it as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group.”

With how far humanity has come as a whole, it’s easy to think that something as terribly monstrous as the intentional targeting of a single group of people for mass murder with the hope of total extinction would be something the world hasn’t seen in centuries. Unfortunately, that isn’t true.

One such group to suffer an event to fit that definition was the Tutsi people in Rwanda. They were targeted during a period that lasted 100 days in 1994 by members of the majority government of Hutu and it is estimated that 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandan lives were taken. The genocide began on April 7th and lasted until July 15th. The Tutsi lost as much s 70% of its population and the Pygmy Batwa suffered the loss of 30% of their population as well.

This is the true story of the horrific evils that led up to the Rwandan genocide, one of the most evil mass murders of modern times.



STONEHENGE: The Mysteries of England’s Most Sacred Historical Landmark

by Phil Coleman

STONEHENGE: The Mysteries of England’s Most Sacred Historical Landmark

Mention Stonehenge and many people instantly think of an ancient monument with religious significance. They see images of Druids at sunrise, the summer and winter solstices, and festivals.

There are hundreds of ancient circles around the UK â?? an estimated 900 now and possibly over 4,000 at one time. The earliest ones were built of wood but that changed to stone in the late Neolithic and early Bronze Age period. Stonehenge may, therefore, be regarded as just one amongst many.

It is, however, without doubt unique. It’s a wonderful piece of engineering, especially considering it was built by people who had only the most rudimentary of tools to do the job. Its history goes back over 4,500 years â?? even older than the Egyptian pyramids â?? and possibly even further, with evidence of other major construction on the site going back another 2,000 years.

Indeed, some large Mesolithic post holes found under the current car park are dated around 8,000 BC, indicating a possible 10,000 year plus usage of the site.

This book looks at the history, mystery and sacred tales of Stonehenge, England’s most cherished landmark.
