Why did the Soviet Union and the United States both get involved in proxy wars in Africa during the Cold War? Both governments were focused solely on providing humanitarian aid to the region. Both governments were concerned with the protection of personal liberties and free elections. Both governments wanted to secure their political influence in the region through support. The United Nations requested that both governments intervene to bring about peace.

    I'd probably go with the the third answer -- that both governments wanted to secure their political influence in the region through support. That often meant with money, military advisors, or supporting elements that were friendly to their political ideas.

    Thanks!!! Which of the following is indicative of social revolution in Afghanistan in the wake of the fall of the Taliban?  Under Sharia law, a woman may be stoned for disobeying her husband.  Roads leading to warehouses full of unsecured weapons have been blocked.  Public executions are occurring with greater frequency in Kabul.  Young women are boxing with hopes of making it to the Olympics

    Even though I'd go with the third one, trustdestinee's answer also plays into it -- humanitarian aid was sometimes used as a cover by the Soviets or the US in providing assistance to nations that they wanted to be buddies with. It's just another way that both these superpowers were "playing the game" to find friends around the world.

    I'd probably say the boxing thing is indicative of the social rev happening over in Afghanistan. Under the Taliban, women's rights were severely hampered under Sharia law. To actually engage in a sport like boxing is a pretty bold move in that post-Taliban world.

    Thank you!!!! The organization that claimed to be behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks was Al-Qaeda. What effect did this have on the U.S. response to 9/11?  It caused the U.S. to invade Iraq within months of the attack.  It caused the U.S. to invade Afghanistan within months of the attack.  It caused the U.S. to invade Pakistan within months of the attack.  It caused the U.S. to invade Iran within months of the attack.

    Definitely the second one -- Afghanistan. It was first in 2001, and then Iraq took place afterwards in 2003.

    ...terrorist. Arafat and the PLO were both responsible for a number of brutal attacks against Israel and its allies over the years. Even when he attempted to hold out an olive branch, there was still considerable doubt that he was being true to his word.

    Thanks!!! With which statement would a supporter of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) most likely agree?  Palestine belongs to all who live there  the PLO is founded on peaceful protest  territories may be peacefully shared  western aggression led to Palestinian occupation

    This one is kind of tricky. Today, the PLO represents Palestine having recognized Israel (and Israel, in turn, recognizing the PLO as a legitimate representative of Palestine instead of as a terrorist organization). I guess a supporter of the PLO today would say that Palestine belongs to all who live there. But I'm not entirely sure of this answer myself.
