War never again! - They are words of Pope Francis on June 6, 2015 when he presided over a Mass at the Olympic Stadium in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia - Herzegovina. The call of of peace was launched byPope Francis at the time when conflicts are ongoing and the world is facing with the threat of terrorism so that his call received wholeheartedly support from peace-loving public opinion. For our part, Vietnam underwent fierce war, the people of Vietnam understand the value of peace and strive to contribute to the protection of peace.
The message of Pope Francis made was not only meaningful to the people of Bosnia - Herzegovina but also for humanity in the context of global communication where we feel an atmosphere of war. The conflicts around the world in fact are world war. According to the Pope, some people deliberately provoke and incite the atmosphere of war, they want to create divisions to profiteering from war. From the affirmation: “War means that children, women, elderly people must live in the refugee camps, while homes, roads and factories are destroyed” .
Francis Pope called for “Never war anymore”; at the same time he emphasized: “Turning swords into plowshares is not just about poetry in the Bible, which is a realizable goal in world politics today. The goal is possible if each party can reconcile conflicts through dialogue in the spirit of peace building. This goal is significant when it was presented in Bosnia - Herzegovina, where a bloody conflict was taken place in the 90s of last century and ended with the Dayton Agreement after parties reached an agreement in Ohio (USA) in 1995.
It was not coincidental that Pope Francis chose Sarajevo - the capital of Bosnian - Herzegovina to visit and give the message of peace. The city of Sarajevo is a clear case to the severe consequences of war and great sense of peace. This is a city with many religious cultures and very different race. It is the only major city in Europe with the followers of the four major religions are Islam, Orthodoxy, Judaism, Catholicism together for centuries. But the war between Orthodox Serbis and Muslim Bosnians left severe consequences. In the four-year war (1992-1995) there were approximately 100,000 deaths, two million people were homeless. Sarajevo is the city's longest siege in the history of modern warfare: 1,425 days.
This beautiful city with rich culture was been destroyed by heavy artillery, tanks and other weapons. The result is that 11,541 people were killed, including 1,500 children; 56,000 injured people including 15,000 children. After achieving the Dayton peace agreement and reconstruction efforts, Sarajevo is now the fastest growing city of Bosnia - Herzegovina, ranked as the 43rd beautiful cities of the world. In 2009, it was considered in the top 10 cities worth visiting.

Sarajevo was nominated as Cultural Capital of Europe in 2014 and will be the venue for the European Youth Olympic in 2017. The visit to Bosnia-Herzegovina and message of Pope Francis here was welcomed by all peace-loving people. Notablyl that earlier Pope Francis also visited Albania in September 2014 and Sri Lanka in January 2015. These are countries just get rid of the complex social upheaval or conflicts, so that after the mediation efforts, stability was initially established and the value of peace was increasingly affirmed.

Fifty years ago a state-centric universe allowed governments to treat their own citizens virtually as they chose within national borders. Today the concept of human rights is flourishing, and the rights of individuals are prized (if not always protected).

Across the contemporary legal, political and social landscape, we see abundant evidence of the legitimation of the movement

we see global conventions that outlaw discrimination on the basis of gender and race and outline the rights of refugees and children; a planet-wide ban on land-mines that was sparked by the outrage of a Vermonter; a pair of ad hoc international war crimes tribunals that take certain mass murderers to task; and an abundance of human rights lawyers who have acquired a respected presence at the policy-making table.

But one ugly, deadly and recurrent reality check persists: genocide. Genocide has occurred so often and so uncontested in the last fifty years that an epithet more apt in describing recent events than the oft-chanted "Never Again" is in fact "Again and Again."

The gap between the promise and the practice of the last fifty years is dispiriting indeed. How can this be?

Signatories agreed to suppress and punish perpetrators who slaughtered victims simply because they belonged to an "undesirable" national, ethnic, or religious group.

In recent years this consensus has gained indirect support from the popular growth of a veritable cult of "Never Again" in the United States.

Contrary to conventional wisdom, the modern media is probably not making intervention more likely. For starters, unlike in cases of famine or natural disaster, genocide can be exceedingly difficult to cover.

Gentle Moon 10/8/15 20:27

Despite all the "globaloney" about reporters being "everywhere," stories about the early stages of genocide are often unattainable because the price of accessing such terrain may be the life of the reporter.

John Smith 10/8/15 20:28

And even if technological advances -- such as Internet television images or flying, unmanned rescue cameras -- succeed in bringing viewers live genocide, the "CNN effect" will not necessarily translate into louder or wider calls for humanitarian intervention, as television images have both attract and repel concern.
