    {webkit-fake-url://FCF412AB-DDC7-44CF-BE19-7836E3AF5D3D/pastedGraphic.pdf} pastedGraphic.pdf The above is an article taken from a Greek newspaper announcing Greece's declaration of war against Bulgaria. The article serves as a form of propaganda and shows that much of Greece's reason for entering the war was to protect its national pride and dignity. Articles like the one above, helped to rally the public and boost its since of nationalism. The document is valuable for it provides insight as to how the Greek government tried to rally support for its cause. This article may be limited as it only provides the Greek perspective of the situation and contains extreme bias towards the Greek cause.

    Petrich Incident
    Known as the "War of The Stray Dog," in 1925, the Petrich incident started when a Greek soldier crossed into Bulgaria while chasing his run away dog. Bulgarian forces shot and killed the soldier, and in response Greece asked that Bulgaria pay to compensate for the soldier's life. When Bulgaria refused to pay Greece invaded the town of Petrich to capture and punish the soldiers responsible. A local militia banded together to prevent Greek soldiers from invading and petitioned to the League of Nations to intervene. By the time the League of Nations intervened 50 people had already been killed. In response Greece was forced to leave and pay a sum of 45 thousand dollars. Greece tried to appeal to the League of nations comparing the incident to the previous incident in Corfu as a response to the killing of Italian soldiers and General Tellini.

    Role Played By League Of Nations
    In this incident, Bulgaria was trusting that the League of Nations resolve the issue and ordered its troops only to show little resistance. Many gathered together to show resistance which included war veterans and volunteers. But, Greece made it clear that it didn't want any Bulgarian territory at all. They simply wanted compensation from what had happened. The League did not let Greece go through with the invasion and called for them to leave and to make compensation to Bulgaria. Greece left and had to compensate Bulgaria with 45,000 euros. There were over 50 people killed from this incident.

    Aland Crisis
    Outline of events:
    Prior to 1809, the Aland Islands were located centrally in the Swedish realm. However, in the Treaty of Fredrikshamn, signed on September 17th, Sweden had to give up all control of the islands, along with Finland, to Imperial Russia. The language and culture of the local population were hardly considered. By the Treaty of Paris of April 18th, 1856, an outcome of the Crimean War, Great Britain required Russia to withhold the construction of any new fortifications on the islands. This stipulation was obeyed, despite unsuccessful attempts to change the status of the de-militarized islands in 1908. By the First World War, however, the Russian government turned the islands into a submarine base for the use of British and Russian submarines during the war.

    Central Issue Of The ConflictThe central issue of the Mosul dispute is an argument between Mosul and Turkey. This particular dispute was concerning the northern boundary of Mosul and where it will lie. http://www.law.fsu.edu/library/collection/limitsinseas/ibs027.pdfb (robisap)The Role Payed By The League Of Nations After the creation of the League of Nations, many conflicts were resolved. Among these was the dispute of the former Ottoman territory of Mosul. The United Kingdom claimed that Mosul belonged to Iraq, while the Turkish state, which was newly formed, claimed it to be a cornerstone of its "historic heartland". The UK was awarded an A-Mandate, which meant that it was given control of the Iraq region. Therefore representing its issues to the League of Nation's committee. The resolution that the "three person" commitee was that Mosul belonged to Iraq. A condition was annexed along with the committee's decision. This was that the United Kingdom shall be given a stretch in its ruling period of the region to 25 years. This resolution took effect on December 16, 1925. Turkey rejected the proposition ,but by June 1926 a treaty was made between this country and Iraq, which stated that Iraq could keep Mosul.(ABetaAn)

    They were group commisioned by the League of Nations, whose primary purpose was to study the Mosul Area, and judge whether this territory would belong to the British Protectorate of Iraq or to the New Turkey.As part of their extensive research, they set out on a quest to study the region and gather information from the people living in the Area. Among these different people who lived in one same area, where the Assyrians, Kurds, Jews, Yezidis, Arabs and Turks. Their final ruling would be that Mosul belonged to Iraq, resolution to which Turkey would not appeal.http://www.shlama.be/shlama/content/view/298/249/
