With the backdrops of the Balkans War and the Rwandan Massacre, Grotesque Human Rights abuses have often been used as the main Moral Reason for Foreign Intervention in Countries such as IRAQ, LIBYA and AFGHANISTAN. However, events following the massive destructions inflicted in the course of foreign invasions, Regime Change and the Consequential Failed State dividends and their impact on the Lives of Citizens have raised even Bigger Morale Questions. Questions are also asked as to whether these invasions have cotributed in any shape or form to the rise of Islamic Extremism in the post Invasions Era and how the Soft Power of Diplomacy can be made more potent as a tool and model to Conflict Resolution between Dictaroships, States and Citizens to maintain the Peace and prevent the necessity of Foreign Interventions.
