—Animalizing the Opposition—

Suspected Viet Cong prisoners are driven in a coffle-like fashion by American troops to a POW destination near Da Nang, Vietnam in November, 1965. (PC: Granger Archive). Coffles have been used by man throughout human history for the purpose of containing two things: livestock and slaves. When the coffle is used upon humans by other humans, there is perhaps nothing else that so prominently displays the primitive indecency and inhumanity which man so often practices on his fellow man. The common human will to abuse other humans will perpetually enkindle the question: Will man ever learn to lay down his grudges, understand his brethren, and see respect as a basic human principle?

—The Final Roar—
.
The remaining soldiers of a Ukrainian ‘cyborg’ unit sing the Ukrainian National Anthem for the last time and begin to put up a final defense after realizing they have been surrounded by Donetsk People’s Republic(DPR) separatist forces in the latter stages of the Second Battle of Donetsk Airport in January, 2015. The unit had attempted to retrace casualties through the airport and subsequently became completely surrounded by DPR forces in the process. The Ukrainian National Anthem is sung at the beginning while the DPR forces prepare to engage the unit. The Ukrainian National Anthem is followed by an anti-Russia taunt song as the DPR unit begins to advance. When the DPR forces come within firing range, the Ukrainian commander then orders the men to fire salvos. The men seen in the video were either killed or captured in the following moments.

In 2012, France was summoned for intervention by their former colony of Mali after Islamic and Tuareg nationalist groups began to rebel against the Malian government to establish their own autonomous state of Azawad in northern Mali. The Tuaregs, whom had rebelled twice before in 1990 and 2007, allied with Islamic groups and began to rebel once more in 2012 in response to feeling largely marginalized by the Malian government. A brief peace deal was signed by both sides in 2013 after heavy fighting, but ended shortly after when Malian soldiers opened fire on a group of unarmed protesters. A ceasefire was again signed in 2015, however, minor fighting is still ongoing. France continues operating in the region along with other militaries as tension ceases to budge.
