外围体育投注It is no big secret that the Congo Crisis was one of the UN's greatest failures. This was largely due to three factors: the failure to remove the Belgian and foreign mercenaries (Ex: Operation Morthor, and Jadotville), the death of Patrice Lumumba a key leader in the Congolese government, and the death of Dag Hammarskjöld, the Secretary General of the UN and the lead negotiator who tried to establish a reconciliation between the DRC and Katanga.

Some argue that if Lumumba had lived the Congo Crisis the DRC would have suppressed the Katangese state and the foreign mercenaries. But what a lot of people forget is that Lumumba lacked the necessary political skills to gain allies in the DRC government and he was unwilling to work and compromise with Dag Hammarskjold. And even if he supressed the state of Katanga as long as he was associated himself with the Soviet Block the USA and its allies would continue to support insurgency groups to undermine him.

So what would it take for the UN to resolve the Congo Crisis? Would Dag Hammarskjold need to live? Would Patrice Lumumba? Please feel free to give your thoughts and comments.

外围体育投注Today, circa 1984, the country of Burkina Faso was founded. It's leader was Thomas Sankara, whose administration was known for its anti-imperialist foreign policy, widespread nationalization of resources, and nationwide vaccination program, among other accomplishments. However, Sankara was assassinated in 1987 as part of a coup by Blaise Compaore, who took control of the country shortly afterward and undid many of Sankara's policies.

外围体育投注My question is what would have happened if the assassination failed and Sankara lived?

In the 80s and early 90s Nintendo had a strict policy toward overseas releases against things such as graphic violence, sexualized images, religious references/ symbols, profanity, and use of drugs/alcohol. If Nintendo did not do this would we have just seen an earlier ESRB before Mortal Kombat and Night Trap or would concerned parents at the time have killed the prospects of gaming taking off in the US?

外围体育投注Tom Mboya is probably one the most underappreciated leaders of African Independence. During his tenure as minister of Labor he instituted economic reforms that improved the standard of living for Kenyans and encouraged stronger ties with the United States. But this all changed when he was assassinated in 1969 by unknown parties. His death sparked years of ethnic unrest and economic instability in Kenya. But what if he wasn't assassianted? Would Kenya be a better place if he hadn't died? And how would he continue his life? Would he run for President?
