Science Fiction’s ideas have always been part of many people’s conspiracies throughout the years. Whether it is raising the dead or aliens are among us. In this paper, I will be talking about one of science fictions classic conspiracy theories, Super Soldiers. When I say Super Soldiers, I mean the kinds that were genetically enhance. I have found that when someone hears “super soldiers’ their minds automatically go to Captain America or Master Chief from the Halo game series. Captain America started as a small lanky soldier that gotten injected with some type of serum that turns him in to the perfect solider. Master Chief taken from his family as a child and was train for eight years before scientist started their genetic testing. Is the military trying to make their own Captain America and Master Chief with a few extra abilities? If so, who is leading the testing and what types of powers are they trying to give to our soldiers? To try to answer these questions I had to start with where did this conspiracy stemmed from. The Beginning of the End by Micheal T. Snyder has led me to the DARPA (the defense advanced research projects agency). Let us have a quick insight into this agency. The DARPA is an agency of the United States Department of Defense that is responsible for the development of new technologies for military use. Established in 1958 their original mission was to prevent technological surprises for example the launch of Sputnik. Over the years, the mission has expanded from preventing surprises to making technological surprises of our own. Could they be talking about super soldiers? Is it possible that this agency is not just working on technology? Could they really be using this as a cover to their super soldier testing? From all of the research that I have done I found that many people think so. Maybe the reason that many people think so is because…...

...Human Trafficking/Child Soldiers Edwina Hay Dr. Rufus E. Robinson Contemporary International Problems-POL 300002043 March 18, 2011 Human Trafficking/Child Soldiers Human trafficking has attracted the attention of the international community and individual states on more than one occasion. Trafficking consists of the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons by means of threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal or organs (Human Trafficking, 2006). Many types of human trafficking and forms of exploitation exist and are constantly changing. The key types of human trafficking and forms of exploitation include sexual exploitation, labor exploitation of children, and exploitation for the purpose of begging. Sexual exploitation is generally considered to be the primary form of human trafficking offenses. Russia’s sex trade has spread; the sex trade industry currently employs 150,000 women (Human Trafficking, 2006). Sexual exploitation particularly affects women and children. ......

...A Long Way Gone: Examples of Bravery There is estimated to be 250,000 child soldiers in the world. They are forced to kill and mutilate people, sometimes their own families. In the memoir A Long Way Gone Ishmael Beah recalls his experiences as a boy soldier, and the impact it had on his life. Ishmael met many people along the way that helped him in his race to find safety. These people were very brave and took many risks for his safety. The people Ishmael show along the way show bravery many times. Early in the memoir, Ishmael and his friends showed bravery when they decided to sneak back to Mattru Jong in order to get the money that had left behind. At this point in the memoir, Mattru Jong had been overtaken by rebels, so returning to this particular village meant that ishmael and friends risked being shot, mutilated, or forced to become boy soldiers. However, without that money they would not be able to buy food and would face starvation. Fortunately, Ishmael and friends were able to secure the money, but faced life-threatening at every turn of the journey. Recalling the danger of crawling through an open clearing to avoid rebel gunfire, Ishmael states, “We started to crawl across the clearing at the signal of the first group that had it across...There were dead bodies everywhere and flies were feasting on the congealed blood on them” (Beah 28). Ishmael had the inner strength to remain calm and make it through this horrifying situation. Throughout the memoir, Ishmael......

Soldiers Home

...joni hill Mrs. Hastings Engl. 1020-105 13 March 2012 “Soldier’s Home” In a “Soldier’s Home” Ernest Hemingway helps many people to get a better understanding of what soldiers go through when they get home. Throughout the story, the reader can see how a soldier named Krebs tries to fit back into society after World War I. Krebs comes home with post-traumatic stress disorder and has troubles fitting back into society. Nobody understands what he is going through, not even his parents. He even has to lie about some of his stories from World War I to make them exciting, so people will want to listen to him. These and other issues are part of the plot of “Soldier’s Home.” Hemingway uses the literary elements of plot, characterization, tone, and irony to further develop the theme of a story involving the hardship he faces of finding a place. Many do not think Hemingway is a great American author, but one has to disagree because the plot of a “Soldier’s Home” shows what soldiers must endure when they get back home to America from World War I. The basic outline in the story is simple enough. It shows how a man named Krebs has come home from World War I to face an even greater challenge against not only himself but also against society. While fighting in the war, Krebs probably sees many of his friends die right beside him. This makes it extremely difficult for him to get close to anyone because he is in fear of him or her either leaving him or dying. Also, he is still a......

Female Soldiers

...by Lolita Baldor discusses a major change in how the military will be utilizing their male and female Soldiers. After many years of women not being aloud to fight in the front-line, the Pentagon is lifting its ban on women serving in combat which will open an immense amount of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after generations of limits on their service. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s move to lift the ban originates from President Barack Obama’s inaugural speech in which he emphasized about equal rights for all. Although changes are set to be announced Thursday by Panetta, the changes will not happen over night. While some positions may open as soon as this year, the more vigorous jobs, such as special operations forces may take longer. There is still no guarantee that a woman might be stepping into a mans job anytime soon. The military will have until January 2016 to make a case that some positions should remain closed to women. In spite of overturning a 1994 Pentagon policy that prohibited women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units, there is still is an ample amount of opposition towards women in combat. One of the biggest concerns about placing women in a combat zone is strength and stamina for certain jobs. In addition to the doubts of a woman’s performance, suggestions that the American public would not tolerate women soldiers being killed in combat. The necessity of a woman in combat, propelled them into behind the scene......

...stop spreading so that they would not get stronger. Now more than ever Americans wanted to change the political ideas of the British. They did not agree with them because it was not benefiting America rather it was benefiting Britain as a whole. Americans also wanted some of these benefits because they were English born but were denied the benefits of English men (doc. D). Not only were the political and economical relations affected by this war but also the ideological relations. Many before the war thought that it was an honor to serve the crown and it was a great pleasure to fight in a war under the command of a gentlemen of General Braddock’s abilities and all its experience (doc. C) .This same line was probably in many American soldiers’ minds but was beginning to change after the war. The proclamation act of 1763 had another ideological effect in American minds. Now that there was more room to spread west they wanted to do so Britain was not allowing them too, this is where Americans started to notice differences among them and wanted to change that and have an idea that would benefit America as a whole. The Seven Years’ War altered the relations between Britain and its American colonies in many different aspects of their relations like politically, economically and ideologically. By the end of the war Britain had spent a large amount of money for it and had to find a new way to make that up. Their revenue from its colonies was small and therefore started taxing......

Child Soldiers

...Child Soldiers Scott Birkbeck Distinguished members of the United Nations, I am here today as an advocate for exploited children. Imagine that you are an eleven year old child, when suddenly soldiers break into your home, capture you and kill your entire family. They bring you blindfolded to their army base deep in the jungle. When you get there you witness a sea of other children just like you but walking around with rifles and machetes. If you try to escape they will beat you mercilessly and may even kill you. Now, what if I told you that the soldiers that kidnapped you and brought you to this place are children. They are following orders out of fear in the hope that they will receive food and water for another day. These abducted child soldiers are mostly younger than you and I. Most of them are just seven or eight years old, orphaned and without a loving hand to guide them in their life. They are given weapons and forced to commit atrocious acts of violence and cruelty. If the children fail to obey their commanders, they are often drugged to make it easier for them to follow orders. Their entire childhood has been stolen from them. They have no idea what they are fighting for and their commanders tell them to think of war as a game so they will become fearless. Who could possibly do this to innocent children? One of the most notorious warlords is Joseph Kony and his Ugandan Lords Resistance Army otherwise known as the L.R.A. To increase his military power,......

...are lured and in most cases forced to participate in child militant. There are an estimated 250,000 child soldiers across the world today (Williams, 2013) . On March 5, 2012 a viral video project KONY launched pulling in over a million viewers in a matter of a few of weeks (Neylon, 2012) . Helping to raise awareness of child soldering, the KONY project targeted one individual Joseph Kony, a war criminal wanted for many crimes against humanity. In this analysis paper the struggle of child soldiers and how this world wide problem is being handled will be discussed. One question that is often asked is how could this be happening? How is it possible to create a child army? The essence of a child’s innocence can be disfigured into mindless brainwash. “Children affected by armed conflict can be injured or killed, uprooted from their homes and communities, internally displaced or refugees, orphaned or separated from their parents and families, subjected to sexual abuse and exploitation, victims of trauma as a result of being exposed to violence, deprived of education and recreation, at risk of becoming child soldiers.” (Mahcael, 2013) With children being so receptacle to influence due to development not yet reached, it is so much easier to control a child in development rather than an adult that has already achieved a level of independent thinking. Awareness of child soldiers and its effects are being brought to light by various organizations such as Invisible Children and......

Child Soldiers

...I. Introduction: a. Opening Device- There are a few words that just don’t belong together such as Child Soldiers. Every child has the right to live a normal life, grow up an experience the things kids are supposed to, like, going to school, playing kick ball outside, enjoying the company of friends and developing in a normal way both physically and mentally. However, not all children get to have this simple luxury that many take for granted. Child Soldiers are a fast growing problem in third world countries and need to be stopped. It’s horrible to think that a child’s life can be devastated and ripped apart by a war that they had no part in starting, but they are forced to fight in combat anyway, causing life long lasting psychological and physical damage. b. Thesis: Worldwide, tens of thousands of children ranging from the young age 6-19 are recruited into government organizations and a variety or armed groups. These children are robbed of the chance to have a normal childhood but in exchange are exposed to horrendous hazards and are psychologically and physically scarred for life and suffer a tremendous amount abuse. c. Preview: In this speech I will explain what a Child Solider is, the normal development of a child and how the development of a child is impacted when they become a child solider. II. Body: d.

Congo Soldiers

...least 12 countries with a documented history of child soldiers this paper will focus on one country in Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo. The research will describe how and why children are becoming soldiers, what life is like for child soldiers, how some children avoid becoming soldiers, and what happens to the soldiers when they become free. Since 1997 the Democratic Republic of Congo has become something like a never-ending nightmare, one of the bloodiest conflicts since World War II, causing more than five million deaths. It seems inconceivable that the biggest country in sub-Saharan Africa and on paper one of the richest, packed with copper, diamonds and gold, as well as immense farmlands of great fertility and enough hydropower to light up the continent, is now one of the poorest, and most hopeless nations on earth. Unfortunately, there are no promising solutions within grasp, or even within sight. One of the gloomiest parts about this nightmarish conflict is the use of child soldiers. The overwhelming majority of child soldiers in the Congo have been kidnapped from their families by rebel groups. It has been estimated that one in ten child soldiers or 30,000 children are found in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The United Nations believes that 15-30% of all newly recruited soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo army are less than 18 years old. One of the reasons the army, and the rebels, use child soldiers is that the enemy cannot find it in themselves......

... Name: Professor: Class: Date of submission: Child Soldiers: How the United States has an obligation to help them. In many parts of the world throughout history young children have been involved in armed conflicts. The destiny of the children who are recruited into armed conflict is tragically changed when they are forced to participate in the conflicts. Worldwide the number of child of ages ranging from 6-19 working as child soldiers is estimated to be over 250,000 (“Child soldiers”). These children are deprive of their chance to live a normal life like other young children in other parts of the world but instead are exposed both physical and psychological abuse which affect them for the rest of their lives. The problem of children getting involved in armed conflict as soldiers has grown in different third world countries and needs to be stopped. In this analysis paper the argument that the United States has an obligation to send our military to help the child soldiers around the world will be discussed. There are many different reasons given to support the argument that the United States has an obligation to help in improving the problem of child solders throughout the world. The first reason why the United States is obligated to help child soldiers is that in most cases the child soldiers are recruited by force to join the armed groups. The United States has been one of the leading countries in fighting human trafficking for both labour and sexual......

...as a successful method of changing certain contradictions. It would involve changing those factors that lead children to being recruited in the first place. Reintegration procedures must assist exchild soldiers in creating a new groundwork for their lives. Providing ways in which children can restore relationships with their families and communities is vital. This is because child soldiers have been raised far from their parents and have been denied the opportunity for physical, emotional and intellectual development.

Mistreatment of Soldiers

...This article is about soldiers who clearly displayed signs of mental illness after serving in Iraq and/or Afghanistan and instead of the providing them with proper treatment they are dismissed from service for misconduct. The story focused on SSG Eric James, an Army sniper who served two tours in Iraq. In 2013 the Army tried dismissing him for misconduct after an incident of drunk driving. To protect himself, SSG James began to secretly record his session with the mental health provider. His recordings sparked an investigation into how providers at Fort Carson are treating soldiers with mental illness and also the accusations that the Army is so quick to dismiss soldiers with mental health problem for misconduct instead of providing them with proper treatment. The investigation also brought to light the insensitivity of these providers whose purpose is to sympathize with soldiers and provide support and understanding; instead they undermined the significance of soldier’s traumatic experiences and mental illness. SSG James was told by health care providers that he was exaggerating his condition and because he is able to come to work and perform his soldierly duties meant that his condition is not as detrimental as he proclaimed. Investigation conducted by NPR (national Public radio) and CPR (Colorado Public Radio) revealed that the Army has been pushing out soldiers diagnosed with mental illness across the country.

The Death of a Soldier

... WILLIAM FAULKNER AND THE DEATH OF A SOLDIER The experience of war is always gloomy and leaves countless victims in its part. Countries go to war for different reason and citizens passionately dedicate their lives in the defense of their beliefs sometimes through the act of war. The view of war in the poems of Wallace Stevens “The Death of a Soldier” and William Faulkner’s “Two Soldiers” paints the unglorified struggles and agonies that comes with war even in modern times. Wallace Stevens’ poem, “The Death of a Soldier” portrays that death as instant and dispassionate for the falling Soldier; he metaphorically compares it to the season of autumn because leaves falls from the tree branches with discomfiture. Just as the Soldier falls in battle field, the leaf in autumn falls swiftly without any memorials because nobody mourns. Wallace stated that “As in a season of autumn. The soldier falls. He does not become a three-day personage, imposing his separation, calling for pomp.” This declaration echoes that no expectation of memorial is mandatory when a Soldier dies during his patriotic act of fighting for his country instead they are quickly forgotten. His view as a modernist poet about the life and death of a soldier is metaphysical in meaning since he believes that death is not in any way a life event that is celebrated for or by any fallen Soldier. William Faulkner’s poem “Two Soldier” relatively regarded war as though inevitable gives......
