I argue, terrorism and genocide are getting worse, and not enough is being done to prevent further genocide, and I think that mankind will be destroyed if genocide and terrorism are not abated. I am especially concerned about those women and children who are more affected and killed. Genocide and crime against people is everywhere.

The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was adopted by the UN General Assembly in December 1948. As a result, the convention excludes from the definition of genocide the killing of members of a social class, members of a political or ideological group, and that of cultural killings. (Source: Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.)

On April 7, 2004, in a speech in Geneva commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 1994 Genocide In Rwanda, UN Ex-Secretary General Kofi Annan announced the Five-Point Action Plan. To date all international prosecutions for genocide have been brought in specially convened international tribunals.

It is true we need to work hard in the world and in other countries. However, anti-terrorism movements and economic programs cost money - lots of it - and there are other demands on money too. Therefore, we must make priorities and that means that only the most intolerable genocide and crime against human will be eradicated. In the world money has been spent since many years on eliminating genocide and terrorism. But we need to also eliminate to curb excessive crimes and genocide. However, we must remember that if people are not threatening, then we can conclude that they are basically satisfied with the the peaceful existence. I want to stretch my argument that mankind is on the path of destruction from genocide, terrorism and war. People are dying in large numbers from genocide, hungry and poverty.

Genocide and terrorism is becoming worse, on the earth. There, more work on peace, poverty and equality must be devoted to eliminating known killers groups. If terrorists begins to kill people at higher rates, then more money will have to spent on it. Action of genocide and terrorism are constantly shifting with circumstance. We need to wage peace and justice. The more peace actions to the world, the more people will survive. Genocide and terrorism are a human threat. All over the world, some people are being used and their future is being destroyed. We have only little talk about the basic problems face by people like higher education, employment opportunities and business.

All should respect the people's right of being unaffected from the poverty. And also, poverty remain pressing problems for development and democracy.
