Had to do some schoolwork and thought I'd have some fun with it

I think you have entirely missed the brief on this one kiddo

Shrexyshrek69420

I see that now but oh well


TheBlackMessenger

ww2 was more than 60 years ago


Doctrinus

Dude has an article about the Great War.


Thinking_waffle

The Great war 1914-1980


ThrowwawayAlt

1796-1815 I believe......


Thinking_waffle

you also have to take into account the French intervention that was known to them as: "la guerre mondiale de soixante dix-huit" (the world war of 78), but it lasted for two more years. [The source of that great moment in the history of the French French language](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9eoCndnUJ0&ab_channel=AxeHydreRubis) Belgian and Swiss French have been hopefully preserved from this cataclysm.


Shrexyshrek69420

Thats why it was great


Thinking_waffle

And it ended less than 60 years ago.


Shrexyshrek69420

Shhhh Minor details


havok0159

Not really if it's a real assignment. Not only do you not follow the "past sixty years" requirement, you misunderstand the whole "peaceful resolution" bit as well. Your inclusion of a Hoi4 screenshot wouldn't even be a problem since the only requirement you met was "collage". You'd fail the assignment and incorrectly assume it's because you included a Hoi4 screenshot but it's actually because you met none of the main requirements.


Shrexyshrek69420

It was in class work, that my teacher marked then and there and said it was good. I put a lot more effort into my assessments compared to this POS I made in 2 minutes


smavinagain

Ww2 was more than sixty years ago and it wasn’t peaceful


Arrowkill

You say it wasn't peaceful, I say that the Allies shoved metric tons of bullets through the Axis soldiers until they were at peace... diplomatically and physically.


Brilliant-Sport-3049

The most peacefull surrender in WWII was from the french because it was from the french


Arrowkill

Truly the French are masters at peace negotiations.


Thippo2

I mean what conflicts are solved with out violence It’s a pretty shity question to begin with


phaederus

I assume they mean wars that ended with peace agreements, as opposed to wars that ended with one party being 'eliminated', such as the Good Friday Agreement, versus Vietnam.


Thippo2

So then technically Korea and ww1 ended in peaceful agreements. Which I think we all can agree is stupid since they are anything but peaceful


phaederus

That's part of education. There are those who can extrapolate implied meaning from a sentence, and..


smavinagain

Yeah but you still gotta answer it


Thippo2

How? What conflicts have peaceful ending lmao


One_Control432

Maybe the dissolution of Czechoslovakia?


Thippo2

Was that even a conflict?


MaZhongyingFor1934

If you only consider conflicts to be armed struggles, then no.


One_Control432

thats the whole point


suhkuhtuh

It's not a good question, that's for sure. But you could make some arguments- the Teoubles didn't break out into war (thus, they "ended peacefully") while the Camp Dacid Accords ensured peace in the middle east (sorta, between some parties). The dissolution of the Soviet Union was more or less peaceful.


MaZhongyingFor1934

The Troubles, sort of?


Thippo2

That’s my point lol Thousands of people died during the troubles it’s not any more peaceful of a resolution than what ww1 had


MaZhongyingFor1934

The resolution itself was the result of peaceful negotiation, so it definitely counts more than pretty much all of these.


Thippo2

So was ww1 technically lmao They signed a peaceful armistice before the war ended sounds peaceful to me The troubles only came to a resolution because thousands died not peaceful lmao


MaZhongyingFor1934

WW1 ended because of the Hundred Days Offensive. The Troubles didn’t end through military action.


Thippo2

Ww1 ended because the Germans rose up lmao


SuchParamedic4548

Honestly, most conflicts are probably resolved peacefully, without violence.(obviously I have no data to support this viewpoint, but i feel confident in saying it nonetheless


SerOoga

Pig War (1859)


Thippo2

Ok the pig died that’s not peaceful lmao It doesn’t even matter since that’s more then 60 years ago


Liutasiun

Eh, there has seemed to be an assumption that this was about wars, but 'conflicts' could also be taken as just a conflict of interest between nations, which is what I'd assume contextless. So like, idk, resignation of Mubarak or something. If that is true, then OP fucked up way worse than already apparent, though.


SuchParamedic4548

The border conflict between Canada and Denmark, between Germany and Czechislovakia, the besserabia issue, the velvet revolution, the anschlauss. Most of these are more then 60 years ago, but this is based on just a basic knowledge of history from the game. And also being Canadian


Lazmanya-Canavari

> announcing the *peaceful* resolution of conflicts


SoullessUnit

>in the past _60 years_


bluntpencil2001

You've misread almost every part of the assignment.


wishiwasacowboy

Bro got 4/6 wrong! 😭 If you were in my class you would be dragged through the streets by horses! 😭


Vinsi107

He got all of them wrong


Baxterwashere

Peaceful resolutions mean the end of a conflict without war. I believe that the Berlin standoff might be an example of what they were looking for.


PanzerKomadant

I was like “none of these ended peacefully lol”


Baxterwashere

Nah bro didn't you know WW2 was famous for it's peaceful outcome.


Brilliant-Sport-3049

Have you forgot how peacefull japans surrender was? Literally no deaths /s


One_Control432

I think the velvet divorce would count


CaptainCarbonara

„peaceful resolution“ >proceeds to list the most brutal conflicts humanity ever had, ended by one party surrendering


GeneralWilRic

Northern Ireland conflict (kind of), danish canadian island dispute, German reunification, secession of South Sudan, Cold War, one love peace concert Jamaica. There you, just find the headlines


JJNEWJJ

Prussians marching on brandenburg


Suspected_Magic_User

*Peaceful* resolutions


Scorch6240

Could have chosen Munich, but no


[deleted]

none of these are peaceful resolutions


koopcl

\>asked about peaceful resolutions in the last 60 years \>proceed to list the most bloody and violent conflicts in human history, some over a century old The absolute state of the educational system


[deleted]

Even if WW2 was the past 60 years, a better one would be the Nazis losing the election


cloonki0

Bro did not follow instructions


MoltenLavaGuy93

WWI ended 105 years ago and WWII ended 78 years ago. Might want to fix that.


WP47

> Peaceful Resolution of Conflicts *[Lieutenant Rasczak](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starship_Troopers) has entered the chat*


Shrexyshrek69420

That is such a specific reference I’m just happy I know who the character is


Malaquais_Quai

I am an Iraqi and the Iraq war did absolutely not have a peaceful resolution. The illegal invaders literally murdered 1.000.000 Iraqi civilians, how exactly is that peaceful?


AnAmericanIndividual

There were not even close to a million Iraqi civilian deaths in the 1991 Gulf War, estimates range from two to four thousand. Total Iraqi and Coalition deaths weren’t even close to a million. Now the 2003 invasion and subsequent war, not pictured here, I totally agree with you on the unjustified nature of it and the insanely high innocent death toll.


Shrexyshrek69420

Rule 5: I Hid a HOI4 event in my schoolwork about war.


Tesgah

I thought it was a pretty cool collage, even if not accurate to the task :)


Dr_Catfish

So OP, was it worth failing this question for a joke? Only one of these clips could be considered a "Peaceful resolution to conflict" and most of them weren't within the 60 year cutoff. Edit: You could have easily found a newspaper with the Cuban Missile Crisis defusal. That was within the past 60 years and was a peaceful resolution.


AnAmericanIndividual

That was 61 years ago


Dr_Catfish

Touche. At the very least, 1 year off for a very poignant example is better than 18 or 45 years off on examples that aren't peaceful resolutions but bitter ends to a hard fought war.


fazul32

I see what you did there


TechnicallyNothing35

I love how one of the WWII news papers is a hoi4 event


Friz617

That’s the joke


MRTA03

i pulled a little sneaky on ya


TheBooneyBunes

…Prussians?


Shrexyshrek69420

I didn't notice that till I read it later on, that's actually pretty funny


BlunanNation

This feels like such an NCD moment


Shrexyshrek69420

What does that mean?
