worldwide conflict

Possible Conflict in the Shinaverse

Based on fanon facts that you can read about below, I have come up with a possible worldwide conflict that Shinachiku and his generation encounters.

New Shinobi System

Hanami’s Dream

Hanami Character Analysis

To summarize, by the time Shinachiku is born and old enough to enter school, Naruto, as well as the other leaders of the shinobi villages have reformed how the system works. In times of peace, there is no need to train their children to be killers. There is no need for the state to push shinobi propaganda into the general education of their youngest most vulnerable citizens.

Becoming a shinobi is a voluntary process that children can’t truly volunteer to do until they’re at least 15. Even then, their true service only begins when they’re 17. Given the world they live in is still transitioning to peace, everyone is not 100% safe 100% of the time, but it still doesn’t call for 12 years olds or even younger to be trained to kill.

The conflict is simple, a rouge nation appears that still follows the old rules. Children as young as 6 years old are still being trained to become soldiers. Kids are still forced to fight each other to their possible deaths just to prove which one is stronger. Their older populations are still riddled with physical and mental scars from growing up in such an environment.

The reaction from people in Shina’s generation would surely be shock and disgust. How can the leaders of the village have child soldiers and send them to their death’s on a whim? At this point, they can’t even imagine being trained to do such things so young.

The reaction from Naruto’s generation and older would be even greater. That WAS their system not even that long ago. How much shame would some of them feel? Not Naruto’s generation really since they are the ones that fixed it, but the generations a bit older than them?

How can they resolve the conflict? I mean, wouldn’t this rogue village feel justified in their actions? This was the shinobi system for centuries and centuries. What right do other villages, who used to do the same thing, have to tell them what to do? Why is Naruto’s way the right way?

Conclusion, I find this interesting. Mostly because I so strongly believe the new gen won’t be brought up the same way as the older gens, so I want to see how they reaction to such a terrible thing (child soldiers). I want to see older people who have already adjusted to the new system look back at what they used to be and feel shame and disgust and a drive to continue to make things better.

Maybe this will be what the Shinachiku movie is about. Maybe this is the main event that drives Hanami to want to be Hokage.

On July 11th, 1995 over 8,000 Muslim men and boys were murdered in Potočari near the UN Base of Srebrenica, Bosnia-Herzegovina under the watchful eyes of a Dutch peace-keeping UN troop. They were killed by Bosnian Serb forces despite this town being a UN safe zone. Tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of this horrid crime, and still Serbia and much of Europe (including the UN itself) has not officially declared the “massacre” a genocide, despite the ICTY (International Criminal Tribunal of Yugoslavia) declaring that it is. To this day, bodies are still being recovered and identified from mass graves and 250 will be interred in the graveyard and memorial depicted in the above photograph.

Despite rising Islamophobia in Europe and worldwide, despite another conflict in Eastern Europe, despite saying since the 1940s “never again”, despite that this site is supposedly “social justice”, I have not seen a single post on the worst genocide in Europe since the Holocaust, a genocide still not recognized as such by the international community, including the organization that was responsible for it. (Incidentally, many Americans have forgotten this country and the other countries involved in this conflict even exist at all.)

It’s deep down to each person. So in one way, we’re on an upward swing, but at the same time there’s still a lot of evil that goes on in the world. I think it’s definitely heading in a better direction, but it seems to take so long for all the people with the power, who control the negative side of life and all the bad inventions they have like guns and bombs and hate. But there has to be a balance. We’ve got to all try harder to manifest more love in order to counteract all that.

It is not to be supposed, that the death of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand will have any immediate or salient effect on the politics of Europe.

“There is a global epidemic of violence against women - both within conflict zones and within societies at peace - and it is still treated as a lesser crime and lower priority. Women and girls are bearing the brunt of extremists that revel in treating them barbarically. This is inextricably linked to our overall failure to prevent and end conflicts worldwide, which is causing human suffering on an unprecedented level. We need policies for long-term security that are designed by women, focused on women, executed by women.Not at the expense of men, or instead of men, but alongside and with men.”

casual reminder to ya’ll in the US:

You’re not only voting for what will happen to your own country, but also for what will happen to the rest of the world. Because The US is involved in a hella lot of big conflicts worldwide, and I am legit scared that the future is determined by people who don’t even think their vote matters.

The US doesn’t exist in a bubble.

Thousands Woke Up At Risk Of Deportation In The Dominican Republic. Almost All Of Them Are Black.

BERLIN (AP) — Syria overtook Afghanistan to become the world’s biggest source of refugees last year, while the number of people forced from their homes by conflicts worldwide rose to a record 59.5 million, the United Nations’ refugee agency said Thursday. Pointing to crises in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Burundi and elsewhere, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres said he doesn’t expect any improvement in 2015.“There is a multiplication of new crises,” he said. “The Iraq-Syria crisis gained the dimension of a mega one … and at the same time the old crises have no solutions.”

HISTORY MEME | [1/1] ONE WAR

          World War II or the Second World War, often abbreviated as WWII or WW2, was a worldwide military conflict; the amalgamation of two separate conflicts, one beginning in Asia, 1937, as the Second Sino-Japanese War and the other beginning in Europe, 1939, with the invasion of Poland. It is regarded as the historical successor to World War I.

                        Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!

          You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

                                                                      –Dwight D. Eisenhower

Errol was born in 2259 to a young couple in their trading outpost in the Commonwealth. One day, as his parents were working with a caravan group, he decided to explore the attic of trading post. After walking past some mannequins that had were donned with the clothes of yesteryear, he came upon a large locked chest that had been pushed up against the wall. Being the crafty kid he was, he pulled a bobby pin out of his pocket and started to pick the lock. With a dampened thud, the lock seized and Errol opened the chest.

He found a old brown uniform with strange looking lines sewed in on the arms. Upon digging deeper into the chest, he had found a canteen, a belt, and a flat looking hat with a small metal leaf on the front. Noticing there was a canvas lining under the uniform, he placed the articles of clothing on the floor and lifted the canvas. Under the canvas, he saw the most beautiful object he had ever laid his eyes across. A rifle. Consisting of wood that wasn’t rotted, unlike the other guns that had inhabited the Wastes. Not a speck of rust on it, anywhere. He pulled it out, and racked the bolt. Clean as a whistle. Stunned by the ultimately immaculate condition of the firearm, he placed it back down and ran back down to ask his father about the chest.

Errol’s father explained to him as they were loading the caravan with goods that his great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather fought in a worldwide conflict that was called the “First World War.” That chest had been locked away since the year 1937! His father explained that many good young men had answered the call of “Mother Canada.” As they were finishing, a man in a uniform very similar to the uniform Errol had found was looking for volunteers to join the army of a “government” called the “New Californian Republic.”

Emboldened by the stories his father had told him, he signed up right then and there. Though his mother did protest, Errol’s father was proud of the son he had raised, hoping this would give him a chance at a life he always wanted. The recruiter told Errol to gather a few small personal belongings and be ready to leave within the next dawn. His personal belongs consisted of his harmonica, a picture of his family an artist from caravan past had drawn for him, a flag of the old Commonwealth he kept under his bed and that beautiful rifle hidden in the chest for all those years.

After he finished his training, he applied for a spot in the First Recon. After his scores were reviewed, the Brass decided he would make an excellent fit. They decided to paired him up as a spotter with another soldier in the First Recon named Boone. As Errol prepared for his first assignment, he wrapped his flag around the butt of his rifle and headed east with his partner. Their mission: Scout as far East as it takes to find territory where Caesar’s influence hasn’t reached. As they finally reach the end, they notice the flags of the Legion are scarce. But a large, elegant towered loomed in the distance.
