Last census in 2005 claimed the Niue population was at 1700 but that was unreliable because it was during a period of cyclone rebuilding when Niue had a large number of contractors ashore. The statistics department also count people who have left recently many of whom don't return. There is a tendan…cy to over estimate the population for aid purposes.. An honest concensus by business leaders estimates the current population at between 1000 and 1100, about 100 being non Niuean (MORE)

Part of man's destiny; it's part of his history now...so yes, it was a noble cause.

They were humiliated and became too involved due to an irrational fear of… communism. But from Vietnam's point of view, it is split, rural people living in the countryside were definatly for communist and saw it as an attractive idea, but urban residents were up for the country to remain capitalist.

In wars in the United States, there have been two types of solders: regular army solders, and local militias. During the Revolutionary War, a few teen age girls disguised themselves as boys and joined the regular army. In more cases more women joined in local militias when the enemy came close and f…ought the British. (The women who had stayed home when the British solders marched toward Lexington and Concord had been raped and watched their houses burn. The same thing happened in other areas. American militias had many women as a result.) That was the first war when women in the United States fought. Before then, there was no United States. (MORE)

That would most likely be WWI as horses were still widely used. Although I do recall that in WWII, the Polish cavalry were roundly defeated by German tanks when the Nazis invaded Poland. But they went the way of the battleship in WWII; they simply became obsolete in modern warfare.

Not his job. Captains fight the battle, Field Grade officers control the battlefield (hence the name, "Field Grade" from the word "Battlefield"), and Generals DISTRIBUTE the forces. Same with the navy; Admirals are aboard a particular warship (the flagship) but they don't fight the ship, the captai…n of that vessel fights his ship. The admiral simply gives orders concerning the fleet that he's commanding. He's basically a "guest" aboard that warship. (MORE)
Fear: Fear of death, fear of never being able to see their families, fear of losing the war/battle and thus losing what they are fighting for in the first place (family, freedom, liberty) Anger: At the enemy for killing their friends (family in some cases) Sadness: For the loss of friends, homes, …and families Bravery: To stand up in the face of adversity in order to defend what they love Joy: When they know the battle/war is over and they have won and thus saved what they were fighting for Summary: Soldiers feel many different emotions while on the battlefield. Possible feelings are endless and differ from man to man. The best ways to grasp what a soldier would feel is to either ask a veteran or put yourself in their shoes. Picture yourself running up the beaches of Normandy or running in Pickett's charge. What would you feel? (MORE)

After the first world war the leaders in charge of countries blamed Germany for causing it. They came up with a document called the treaty of Versailles. This restricted what Germany could do almost as a punishment. This included how large an army they could have and also a large section of German …land was taken away and given to neighbouring countries. German people were very angry with these restrictions and that the whole blame for the war was placed on them. Also the country was weak from fighting a war. Large sections of the country were in ruin from bombings and most people were living in poverty with severe food shortages. Hiltler, an evil dictator won an election and took charge of the country. With him radical ideas about making Germany strong again the countries people quickly fell under a dictatorship. Hiltler sought revenge from the countries that imposed the treaty of Versailles and he started to invade and attack other countries. (MORE)
10.7% (2006) I don't know where this 10% came from. If it came from the Niue Statistics department then it probably measures the amount of working age people that don't work for the government in which case it is an abomination. There is no real unemployment in Niue. Subsistence agriculture and fi…shing are gainfully undertaken by a very small percentage of those not employed by the government or private sector. In a population of 1200 there wouldn't be 1% who don't partake in any of these forms of employment. (MORE)

The Phillipines. The US had just acquired them from Spain in 1898 and there was some resistance to this. The main resistance came from indigenous tribal peoples whose land was being seized by US settlers for cattle and fruit production. The US sent in troops to crush these tribes and successfully ex…terminated about 500000 of them between 1899 and 1902. This is why there are no native aboriginal tribes left in the Phillipine s-the genocide was 100%. (MORE)
