They killed forty eight men one night ago. They came in to the town, took out a police station, demobilized them and then proceeded to shoot at everything male in their path. They shot them and left their bodies lying in the dark to be collected and disposed. They didn't care; shot at close range and left them for dead. They killed forty eight people in less than four hours. Sadly this is not a one time only incident, there is more... A well executed shoot to kill attack in a h...

As many expected and predicted, the resolution against Sri Lanka was adopted by a majority vote at the Commission that is for Human Rights of the Nations who Stand United. Any thought on ignoring its impact is officially a goner. They will watch us. That’s what Navi Pillay says. So our people have one question now; why did they do this to us? Well I for one have a different set of questions; how did our post-war diplomacy fair? Did we get the mix right? And if we did, why did we fail? I have...

Why violence? Violence has in the past few years been a major contributer to wars, conflicts and distruction of public property. A war cannot break out if people are not violent, live in harmony and unity. We can make a difference! Lets unite as the next generation for a better future. Yes we can!

If we can't stop the war, then maybe we can change a heart, and help those who need our aid. The world today has carved us into divine beings prone to the alteration of the universe. Nonetheless, we have been condemned by nature and at the same course raised to a unique base by its prowess. In all, we have seen a difference in life, scope and justification. Nature has almost shut the doors to those suffering from the war. Now they are scattered abroad, like ants when splashed with water. What we...

I am going to write about one of the human rights, which is the freedom of religion. Freedom of religion is a universal right, which means that the whole world’s countries have it. It is the same with all human rights. They are universal and indivisible which means that no right is bigger than the other. The freedom of religion is very important for almost everyone. This right says that the human has the right to believe in whatever he/she wants and thinks (in a religious way) ho...

Sometime last week I happened to attend a forum discussing the very tragic South Sudan conflict. My attendance was mainly out of curiosity, I wanted to understand why people in my neighboring country were maiming each other and displacing hundreds of thousands of people. My interest was further fueled by the fact that the speakers were South Sudanese nationals and also present was an official from the mediation team[1]. I was also deeply interested in knowing how a very young count...

Poetry is a powerful form of communication and expression. In fact, the very foundation of poetry is based on emotion and sentiment which seeks to make itself universal in its plight, understood by everyone. If there is one thing that every person in every generation can understand, it is war. I decided to use poetry to convey the thoughts of the greats about war. Enjoy! Nefarious War--Li Po (c. 750) Last year we fought by the head-stream of the So-Kan, This year we are fight...

The 2014 Winter Olympic Games are just around the corner and Sochi, population 350,000, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of thousands of athletes from around the world. Amidst terrorist bombings and threats nearby, on account of Chechnyan rebel groups, Sochi faces great security challenges arising in the form of space, land availability, warm climate and safety from terrorist coups. Chechnya is to Russia what Tibet and Basque are to China and Spain respectively. Essentially, they ar...
