By: Ethan Yang, Jun Hao, Xiang Heng

palestine 1947
Palestine (1947)
  • Failure
  • What was it about?
  • -It was a dispute between Jews and Arabs -After investigation, UN decided to divide Palestine, leading to the creation of the Jewish state of Israel.
  • Outcome
  • -This was one of the most controversial decision made by the UN and it was rejected by the majority of Arabs.-This led to series of civil wars between Israel and various Arab states.
the korean war 1950 53
The Korean War (1950 – 53)
  • South Korea was invaded by North Korea in June 1950
  • Security Council condemned North Korea
  • They sent help to South Korea
  • Managed to repel North Korea

VERSUS

slide4

Overall, a great success for the UN

  • However, it was only possible due to absence of the USSR
  • Very much an American Operation
the suez crisis 1956
The Suez Crisis (1956)
  • British and French protested and sent troops when president of Egypt nationalized the Suez Canal
  • This is so as British and French had some shares of the Suez Canal
  • At the same time, Israelis invaded Egypt
  • Security Council stepped in and asked British and French troops to withdraw
slide6

They agreed to withdraw if the UN ensured a reasonable settlement over the canal and kept the Arabs and Israelis from slaughtering each other

  • Overall it was a great success
hungarian rising 1956
Hungarian Rising (1956)
  • Occurred at the same time as the Suez Crisis
  • Hungarians tried exerting independence from Russians
  • Soviet entered Hungary to stop the revolt
  • UN stepped in when Hungary asked for help
  • Russian did not want to withdraw their troops
  • They refused to co operate and no progress could be made
  • UN failed as Russians simply ignored them therefore nothing could be done
  • Unlike Britain and France who were willing to bow to international pressure
  • FAILED
czechoslovak crisis 1968
Czechoslovak Crisis (1968)
  • Failure
  • -This was almost a repeat of what happen in the Hungarian Rising-Czechs showed, what Moscow felt to be too independent-And thus, Russian and other WARSAW pact troops were sent to enforce obedience to the USSR-The security council tried to pass a motion condemning this action, but Russian vetoed it-And there was nothing the UN could do, with Russians not cooperating
the iran iraq war 1980 88
The Iran – Iraq War (1980 – 88)
  • Long drawn war between Iran and Iraq
  • After years of meditating, UN finally managed to negotiate a cease fire
  • Success, however it could be due to the fact that both sides were close to exhaustion
