Using 2002 estimates of 24 million and a more conservative 2.8% growth rate, and assuming that growth rate since 1994, a projected 2002 population of 26 million is calculated.� Using conservative numbers, two million Iraqi citizens are missing.� In number, that qualifies as a genocide, and also in American intent. [309] � How many lost lives were due to premature death, how many were due to children not being born because of the hardships that the potential parents suffered, and how many were due to dead soldiers who could have fathered children, is a matter of conjecture.� If the missing people were Iraqi children who were never born, instead of children, ill and elderly who died before their time, it is obviously not a population control program that the Iraqi people freely chose.

The reconquistadors gave the Muslims three options: - Retreat out of Spain along with the defeated Moorish armies. - Embrace (rather return to) the faith of Christ. - Face a wholesale slaughter as worshippers of Satan. Rather than stressing technical expertise, they took a broad-based approached to media and communications. Without getting too deep into the details, several stark differences exist which include: Word order of personal pronouns (“Desculpe-me” in EP vs. “Me desculpe” in BP) Although this is just an overview, I hope this provides some insight into this wonderful language.

But for historical reasons, Swedes would rather make jokes about Norwegians than Finns ( Read more in French ). – What is the difference between Swedes and Finns? – The Swedes have nice neighbors! They officially deposed Philip in 1581 when they signed the Oath of Abjuration. The USA's govern ment and mainstream media endlessly justified the bombing of Yugoslavia as a "humanitarian intervention."� Even so-called "left" media sources stated the same thing. [332] � America’s bombs somehow saved Albanians, even as they killed Albanians.� NATO's bombs directly killed about 300 Albanians, whom they were supposedly saving.� In only three previous instances in the 20th century had a large power invaded another nation for "humanitarian" reasons, and America and Bill Clinton made the fourth.� The other three were Hitler's invasion of Czechoslovakia, Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia, and Japan's invasion of Manchuria. [333] � In those three earlier instances, the invading imperial powers invoked lofty rationales for their invasions, and their rhetoric accurately cited problems and abuses in the regions they invaded.� Such rationales could be concocted for any place on Earth.� The Big Lie regarding each rationale was that their motivation was helping the nations they invaded.� In each case, they invaded for murderously self-serving reasons.� One thing is certain: the application of violence, if justified (which I have not found a clear instance of yet, and doubt I ever will), should be the result of lengthy deliberations by those who authorize such actions.� As with all of our violent interventions, the American public (who ultimately authorized the violence) knew virtually nothing about what was happening as they cheered the violence.� Not one in ten Americans could pick out Yugoslavia on a geophysical map (one with no national boundaries or names) of the world.� In a 2002 global geographic literacy survey by National Geographic, more than ten percent of American adults between the ages of 18 and 24 could not even identify the USA, and 87% could not identify Iraq.� Thirty percent could not even identify the Pacific Ocean.� Americans cheer the bombs without really knowing where they fall.� With all the self-congratulation about what a humanitarian nation America is, and how we saved the Albanians, a little investigation into our humanitarian record is warranted.

Andalusians also enjoy freidurías (fish, such as sole or anchovies, fried in batter). Spain also lost its territories in Belgium and Italy at the Peace of Utrecht, a source of much resentment of Spaniards towards their new government. The later intrusion of Napoleonic forces into Spain in 1808 (see Peninsular War) cut off effective connection with the empire. In 1999, the country's major investors took an interest in the media. During that same year, William of Orange united seven northern states in the Union of Utrecht, which formed the Dutch Republic that openly opposed Philip and Spain.

How did the harbor influence Boston's culture? The first Europeans to North America’s Eastern Woodlands remarked on a park-like, open forest, which was a hunter’s paradise.� That open forest was maintained by humans burning the undergrowth every year, which turned the woodlands into an environment conducive to feeding animals that humans could hunt and eat.� There is significant evidence that the Great Plains was an environment husbanded by humans over millennia, burning the plains regularly so forests could not recover, and turning it into the world’s biggest pasture, where bison, elk, and other edible animals could flourish. [8] � Similarly, the Ama zon may at least partly be a human-created biome.� It is controversial today, but there is persuasive evidence that the Amazon basin and vicinity was partly terraformed, millennia ago, on a scale so vast it is difficult for modern observers to even imagine, much less accept.� Thousands of square miles of the Amazon basin were terraformed by mixing ceramics into the soil, thereby creating a kind of super-soil, and ancient earthworks in the plains above the Amazon basin are so vast that it is challenging to imagine the civilization that wrought them.� As with nearly everywhere else in the New World, early European invaders described a thickly-populated Amazon, and the plants of the “wild” Amazon are highly unusual in their abundance of fruits, nuts, and other human-usable nourishment, which is strong evidence that the biome was transformed by humans millennia ago.� More than half of the Amazon's domesticated plant species (more than 100 of them) were trees that provided such bounty.� The Amazon rainforest may be the world’s largest garden. [9] History has sho wn that all cultures unravel when subjected to the stresses of disease, famine, warfare, and the like, especially when large fractions of the population die off.� Because European contact was so quickly and universally disastrous for Native Americans, what later chroniclers recorded were generally remnants of New World cultures that existed before Columbus.� What the New World was like before Europeans arrived will be a source of enduring controversy, but some pursuable evidence is the first contact accounts of Europeans in the New World.� The early Europeans to North America, whether they saw the Great Plains, the Eastern Woodlands, or California, described peoples who were not particularly hostile toward one another, even enemy tribes. [10] � Few early European observers left behind detailed descriptions of the New World they encountered, and those that do can have major deficiencies.� Columbus and Cort�s chronicled the first contacts between Europeans and the intact cultures in the Caribbean and Mesoamerica, but both chroniclers had agendas.� Although his journal is dominated with his quest for gold and how he might exploit the wealth of the discovered lands, Columbus regularly remarked on the incredible beauty of the islands and the happy, healthy, peaceful natives, and many of them did not know what weapons were.� He described the islands as an Edenic paradise and the natives its worthy inhabitants, and he was right.� Columbus and his invasions quickly destroyed it, however, so reconstructing that extinct culture has been a challenging task for modern anthropologists.
