    A civil war was fought because of the king’s unconstitutional acts, but later became a dispute over the powers of the crown and Parliament. In order to increase the Roundheads’ chances of victory, Colonel Thomas Pride led his troops in the English House of Commons and removed one hundred Royalist and Presbyterians who were accused of siding with Charles I and were also seen as unreliable in the army. By the end of the English Civil War, the Roundheads obtained victory. Oliver Cromwell was convinced monarchy was not needed in England. He forced Parliament into trying, convicting, and executing King Charles I for “treason against the people” because Charles I was personally responsible for the outbreak of the Second Civil War (“English Civil War”). Oliver Cromwell handpicked judges and forced them to sign the death warrant of King Charles (“Cromwell, Oliver”). Charles I refused to give up his power as king and was beheaded on January 30, 1649. On that same day, the Rump Parliament passed an act prohibiting any person to become a monarch in England. Their intention was to crush any potential successors to the…

    The last few days of my life have been something new to me. I truly know now what I’ve been taking for granted. The war isn’t the great adventure it seemed to be at first. In the past battle at Vimy, I’ve witnessed the death of thousands of young men just like me. During the nights of the battle, the constant deafening noises of the enemy shells, bombs, and explosives made gave me nightmares. The trenches would be infested by rats and maggots who would swarm the dead bodies. This would frighten…

I am going to discuss how the use of force relates to the D.I.M.E. model and two types of power (“Soft” and “Hard” power), as well as resources associated with D.I.M.E. instruments of power. I agree with Robert Keohane and Joseph Nye’s idea that force is not normally used to solve disputes between states. However, to say force is unimportant or irrelevant in most situations is…

Mercenaries fight for money or other recompense rather than for political interests. In the last century, mercenaries have increasingly come to be seen as less entitled to protections by rules of war than non-mercenaries. Until recently, these categories who sold military services for money were called mercenaries. Now, they are called…

    “Child soldiers are actually preferred by some army commanders because they are easier to manage and manipulate than adults” (Miller, Sarah Rose). They do not have the experience of older adults and are unable to make decisions. Therefore, they do not question the actions of their leaders and disobey orders unlike older soldiers. This obedience eventually leads children to have the higher possibility to carry out suicide missions, because they are mentally weak and do not think abstractly…
