In this article, the writer discusses that the process of reconciliation following civil or global conflict is beset on all sides by difficulties, relating to the prospects of maintaining precarious ceasefire agreements, to the need for the doling out of resources and assistance necessary to restore order and to the demand for some actionable form of punitive justice. The writer then looks at the Marshall Plan, which clearly delineates the responsibilities imposed upon the parties responsible for dismantling a global threat and ending a conflict there within. The examines the application of the Marshall Plan to a number of crises and concludes with a look at its relevance to the crisis in Darfur and the US role there.

From the Paper:

"Here, a fundamentally and physically divided Germany would emerge from the ruins of the second World War. One half would be shaped in the image of its Western conquerors while the other would take on the mantle as one of Soviet Russia's most prized creations. As one half of Nazi Germany, which would be the seat of World War II and the Holocaust, East Germany's 20th century history is stained by the active participation of its leadership and populace in the instigation of worldwide carnage and the mass murder of millions of European Jews in its concentration camps. Thus, its subsequent Soviet occupation would oversee a bleak humanitarian scenario. By clear contrast, the American occupied West Germany would become a model for democratic reconstruction, ultimately serving as a template for global conflict management, both for better and for worse.
"The end of WWII would also be a pivotal time for the relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union, producing a ripple effect. Former partners in the defeat of Germany, they would now begin a struggle at defining the future of the Germany, Europe and, indeed, the world."
