Ch 36 Readings

Here are two readings that go in depth on some of the topics from Ch 36.
Click on the link below and read 28.5 and 29.7.  Answer the questions at the end of each reading.  Email all responses to lwaddell@tuhsd.k12.az.us

28.5. Alain Destexhe, Rwanda and Genocide in the Twentieth Century

1. How would you define genocide?  Do you think that Destexhe is correct in indicting the Hutu leadership for this crime?

2. In the refugee camp at Goma at least tens of thousands and possibly several hundred thousand Hutus died, largely from cholera, which swept the area in epidemic fashion.  Several media sources applied the term “genocide” to the tragedy at Goma, but Destexhe finds it inappropriate.  What do you think? 

29.7. “We Wage a War to Save Civilization Itself” (2001): George W. Bush

1. In his speech of September 11, Bush states that the U.S. was attacked “because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world.”  Do you agree with assessment?  Why or why not?

2. Can you think of any instances in history where terrorism worked to achieve a political goal?
