Shake Hands with the Devil Discussion Questions
1. Was Dallaires mission doomed

Underfunded with no support or training
UN didn't take him seriously
It was a "bluff", he wasn't equipped to take
control
Already existing tension locally
Orders denied him taking actions when they
were informed of a plan to massacre Tutsis
2. What role did the Belgians play
in the genocide? Rwanda was their colony
Discriminated in their experiments
ID cards
They technically should not have taken part in

were needed the most
Soldiers left UN sites where they were suppose
to protect refugees
3. What happened to Dallaires
