The First Iraq War also known as the First Persian Gulf War, began on August 2nd, 1990, and it lasted until February 28 1991. This war was fought between the UN coalition forces from thirty-four countries led by the United States. The leader of Iraq Saddam Hussein attacked Kuwait on August 2 1990. This led to many economic sanctions to Iraq world wide. Six months later the United States sent in their troops to Iraq and urged other countries to join in forces. The conflict ended with the aerial bombardment of Iraq on 16 January 1991 and the final victory was sealed on the 23 of February.

The word holocaust has Greek origin and means “sacrifice by fire”. The Holocaust is the result of the Nazi politics, a systematic execution of six million European Jews. As we all know during World War II Hitler had the idea of cleaning the World of all that wasn’t white and and all who didn’t practice Christian Religion. He believed that they had “racial inferiority”. In order to achieve his goal more easily he started opening “the camps of death” or the concentration camps as they were called. In those camps he forced people to work hard, made medical and scientific experiments on them and in the end he gassed them with carbon monoxide and other deadly gasses.

The Black Death was one of the deadliest pandemics that ever happened to mankind. It is called the Black Death because of the black spots that it left on human skin, but the name of the disease is bubonic plague that was imposed by the Yesinia pestis bacteria. It is believed that the illness originally appeared in Asia, and was passed in Europe thanks to the black rats and the fleas living on their backs, that were regular passengers on the merchant ships.

The key territory was the Far East, Truman thought that the Communism would have the domino effect on the world (if one became a communist country all would be) and the USSR was the biggest communist country at that time.

When I looked up for the meaning of tsunami, I found put that it is a large amount of water that is moved as a result of an earthquake, volcanic eruptions or underwater explosion. These kinds of movement are characteristic for seas, although it can sometimes occur in large lakes. The knowledge for tsunami was wage until the beginning of the 20th century; even nowadays it is still the subject of many researches.
