In the majority of cases, human rights abuse and economic downfall follow communism. A change in government through military action could prove to be the solution to this by eliminating the source of the problem. This has been proven through Vietnam where there is now a democratic government in place and the country is now in better economic, political and social standings. Conclusion by Emily Sprainis Although it would be beneficial to create a new form a government, it would not happen easily. Some of the countries in this area are very strong and would not be easily beat. What would happen if they actually won and possibly took over countries like the United States? That could mean that the U.S. government would become communist and it would be even harder to eliminate communism and its abuse on human rights. We need to find alternate solutions. For example, another possible solution is to try and get the media to actually show what is really going on in the country, that way, the world and the people there could actually see what is happening. That could turn everyone against the government, then it would be easier to fight and change the form of government that way. And the people of the media could not get into too many problems because more people would be on their side as well. Going back to the first solution provided, the first step necessary in getting the government to change by military action is to invade the area with troops from a country willing to try and change the area to a different form of government.
