Terrorism in Africa
video
North Korea
The issue is terrorism. People die from it. People
are tortured. Peoples lives are ruined. That is why it is a problem to the world. People are
in danger by it. Since Africa is such a big place I will focus on Kenya. The history of terrorism in
Kenya started in 1975. In 1975 there where
two blasts in central Nairobi in February.
The second bombing in Kenya happened on
Jan 1st 1980. In 1998 terrorist suicide bombers bombed the United States Embassy. Most recently there was the Westgate mall attack. The attack started on 2013 Sep 21 and ended on Sep 24. 72 people died. One obstacle that blocks a solution is that there are a lot of terrorists, so it is hard to find all of them. Also a lot of the time when a terrorist attacks it is the first time that person attacked since most of them die while attacking. Anyone can be a terrorist, so terrorist attacks are hard to stop. Today terrorism makes me feel sad, sacred, upset and worried. I think that in the future terrorism will effect me in a similar way, but I am not sure.

Human rights in north Korea is a huge issue for many reasons. People in North Korea do not have rights. There is a lot of famine in North Korea. People are put in concentration camps and are forced to work until they die as slaves. People are not allowed to leave the country. There are forced abortions, human trafficking, slave labor, and torture. North Korean government is terrible. They have persecution and public executions. There is also no freedom of speech or press. A lot of the history of concentration camps have been learned from people and guards who escaped. One person who escaped was Shin Dong-hyuk. He escaped from camp number 14. The history of how North Korea got this way probably started at the Division of Korea. Korea was divided into two halves. North Korea and south Korea. The Provisional People's Committee for North Korea was made in February of 1946. Kim ll-sung was the head of this. Later after much conflict the Korean War started. It began in June 1950 and it officially ended in 2007. After Kim ll-Sung's death his son Kim Jong-ll became The Supreme Leader. There are many obstacles that block solutions to helping people who are in concentration camps. The camps are in areas that are heavily guarded and are away from civilization, so it is hard to get the people out. The problems in North Korea upset me. They make me wonder how such terrible things could even happen. It makes me sad. I am not sure how it will effect me in the future it mostly depends on what the situation is like in the future.

Latin America
There is a huge amount of drugs in Latin America. One country which is in Latin America is Mexico. There is a lot drugs in Mexico and a lot of the countries that make up Latin America. The government has even been seen participating in drugs before. There is a debate whenever or not drugs should be legalized in Latin America. There is also a lot of violence in Mexico. In 2011 there were 27,199 homicides in Mexico. Violence is also a big issue in other Latin American countries. Honduras has the highest crime rate in the world. One of the reasons why Mexico has such a high drug rate is because of is location. It has a perfect location to get drugs everywhere. During the prohibition they supplied alcohol to some places. Pablo Escobar was a huge supplier of cocaine in the 80s. He was also at a time involved in politics. In 1989 Miguel Angel Gallardo was arrested and this triggered the drug war. Obstacles that block solutions to it are many. One being that a lot of the drug traffickers are dangerous. There are also drug lords who have a lot of men working for them. Some of them are really hard to find. It is very hard to stop drug production when there are, so many drug suppliers. Even when they arrest drug lords there is a lot of people who want to take there place. Drug wars and violence in Latin America effect me several ways. I am sad that there is, so much drug production and crime there. I feel shocked that such massive drug production is happening. It is makes me sad when I think of how all the families and people who are caught in between. I also have hope that someday things there will get better. In the future I think it will effect me depending on how things have changed there.

A There is an estimated 40,000 people from North Korea that are in Russia being subjected to forced labor. People are also taken out of Russia, so people are shipped into Russia and out of Russia. Human trafficking is also a problem in Albania where they also force children to beg.The Albanian government is trying to stop human trafficking. 90% of victims of sexual exploitation in Germany come from Europe. In the last ten years an estimated 1,000 from China were forced to Germany where they are forced to work in restaurants. In Germany they have found that a lot of the offenders of human trafficking were not going to prison. Human trafficking is obliviously a problem for the world. Anytime when there is this much suffering it is definitely a problem for the world. The Soviet Union's downfall is the reason for increased human trafficking in Europe. Another reason is for the soldiers in the Balkans. They are also responsible for the increase of human trafficking in Europe. Obstacles that block solutions to the problem of human trafficking are many. One is that it is hard figure out where it is going on. It is hard to find out who the traffickers are. Sometimes it is also dangerous for someone to testify against them. Today human trafficking influences me in a number of ways. It makes me sad that such awful things are going on even right at this moment. It upsets me that the different governments have not found solutions even though some of them are making progress. It scares me and disgusts me that people could do such terrible things. In the future I don't know how it will effect me. It depends on how things are at that time. If the situation is the same I imagine I would feel worse about it because it would have been going on for longer.

Middle East
Protests have been going on in Egypt since July. It stated when the people wanted them to remove their president from office. The presidents name is Mohamed Morsi. They finally removed him from office, but some people want him back. Others do not. These to groups have been fighting. Thousands have died because of the protests. It is a problem for the world because when thousands of people are dieing it is always a problem for the world because we are the people of the world and when are country needs help we help, so why would we not help people who live farther away. It is a problem for the world because of this. Many nations leaders have released there feelings about the protests saying different things. In 2011 Hosni Mubarack had a resignation and a trial. Egypt went under Martial Law. Of course people did not like this and protested. The military set up elections. Two main candidates Mohamed Morsi and Ahmed Shafik. Mohamed Morsi won although this does not mean that the citizens of Egypt where happy about him being president. After some time some people were worried that he carried to much power. People began to protest this, but he did not give up his power. Then on July 3 the Egyptian coup d'etat happened. Morsi was removed from office. After this the Muslim Brotherhood started protesting. Morsi is a member. In what was meant on July 4 to be peaceful protest turned violent. Over 100 people were injured. Two deaths were reported. The deaths are thought to be children. Many of these protests have occurred. In the 2013 Egyptian Raids hundreds to thousands died. There have been different reports. Obstacles that block solutions to this problem are many. One is there are two sides. One wants Morsi back the other does not. They both can not have there way. Today the protests have effected me in several ways. I am worried how it will turn out yet hopeful that things there will get better. In another way it makes me sad that so many lives have been lost. In the future I really do not know how it will effect me. It depends what happens there in the future. Either way I know that when I think about the protests in Egypt I will be sad about all of the people who died.
