April 29, 2017 (SSB) — In law of torts, foreseeability is a leading concept use to determine whether the person causing the injury should have foreseen the consequences that his conduct would resulted into. This concept enables human beings to carefully tread in their doings. Well, that aside since much of it will come out as I trickle down. Have you ever asked yourself when and how the current war in South Sudan will end? If yes, then allow me to educate you on a living testimony of a war piece. ‘The French invasion of Russia, also known in Russia as the Patriotic War of 1812’. Famously staged by none other than Napoleon, the Great, to stamp his feet at the helm of affairs politically, socially and economically in Western Europe.
In those days, Napoleon had imposed himself on Polish, Prussians and Austrians as their emperor and wanted to silence Alexander I of Russia from making claims on his loyalist (Polish). He plans to go to war with Russia and later use his victory to prevail in the negotiation over Poland. He promises to crush his enemy within a period of one month with his large number of troops (685,000). Little did he knows that nature can dictate the tide.
