The concept of strategic significance has undergone a certain degree of change in the post-Cold War period to include aspects such as human rights. | Mauritania is located in North Africa bordering the Atlantic ocean between Senegal and the Western Sahara. Mauritania is really hot year-round. During November through February, the temperatures become hot during the day but very cold cold during the night. During the months of March and May, the temperatures are really bad because there are high winds that tend to make your life miserable. In the months of June to October, the climate tends to be very, very hot reaching the temperatures up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

2: The concept of strategic significance has undergone a certain degree of change in the post-Cold War period to include aspects such as human rights and "good governance". This change is over and above the extension of the concept during the previous era to include both tangible and non-tangible determinants of national capability, as well as ego and alter perceptions of strategic significance.

This change is over and above the extension of the concept during the previous era to include both tangible and non-tangible determinants of national capability, as well as ego and alter perceptions of strategic significance. The country's first president, Moktar Ould Daddah, served from independence until ousted in a bloodless coup on 10 July 1978. Mauritania was under military rule from 1978 to 1992, when the country's first multi-party elections were held following the July 1991 approval by referendum of a constitution.

3: Mauritania became an independent nation on Nov. 28, 1960, and was admitted to the United Nations in 1961 over the strenuous opposition of Morocco, which claimed the territory. In the late 1960s, the government sought to make Arab culture dominant. Racial and ethnic tensions between Moors, Arabs, Berbers, and blacks were frequent. Mauritania and Morocco divided the territory of Spanish Sahara (later called Western Sahara) between them after the Spanish departed in 1975, with Mauritania controlling the southern third. The Polisario Front, indigenous Saharawi rebels, fought for the territory against both Mauritania and Morocco. Increased military spending and rising casualties in the region helped bring down the civilian government of Ould Daddah in 1978. A succession of military rulers followed. In 1979, Mauritania withdrew from Western Sahara.

4: The current population of Mauritania is 3,129,486 and increasing. The Mauritania People are traditionally nomadic.The different races of people live in the land of Mauritania. The people of black African inheritance and mixed Moor form 40 percent of the Mauritania population. The Moors are mainly descendants of Arab and Berber origin. The African tribes form a good percentage of the Mauritania population. The major African tribes living in the south of Mauritania include the Pular and the Sarakole. The Pular, also known as the Fulani, were the nomadic cattle owners of Western Africa. Their conquests were born in Mali and took them as far away as the Southern parts of Mauritania. settlement was not a priority with the Pular. Their most outstanding periods of history were their religious reform movements in the Hausa states. These campaigns led to the ultimate downfall of their opposing Masina and Tukulor empires. Islam was their main religion.The Soninke are a Mand people who descend from the Bafour and are closely related to the Imraguen of Mauritania. They were the founders of the ancient empire of Ghana.

6: Mauritania's main industries have to do with the mining of iron ore and gypsum and fish processing form the backbone of mauritanian industries.Also in 1998 mining exported equal to 214 million.It was the worlds largest foreign exchange generator.Mauritania is tring to develop some new natural resources such as gold and oil.

7: The type of government mauritania is ruled by is a military junta. A military junta is a government led by a committee of military leaders. It originally referred to an executive body that came to power after a military coup in 20th century Latin America. The country was under the autocratic rule of Maaouiya Ould Taya for 25 years until a military coup in 2005

8: Mauritania had many conflicts and also had many positive and negative aspects of this country.One positive aspect is that the desertation has been shrinking due to the fact of the growing metropolis is in middle of an ocean of sand desert. According to Mauritanian statistics, the Sahara desert is moving southwards at a speed of seven kilometres each year. Sand dunes follow its move and burry past human achievements. Their were many positive effects but that one was more towards the serious conflicts. ONe negative aspects was that mauritanian terror threat.Firstly, a statement believed to be from the leadership of the militant group al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb was posted on a jihadist website criticising the coup as against the will of the people, and calling on them to act. It has been much discussed by Mauritanians, many of whom worry about the implications of such a message.Secondly, the US government froze funding for military co-operation in protest at the coup. But with the military now in charge, the combat between extremists and the army is entering a new phase. In the last few months, Mauritania has suffered a series of attacks blamed on AQIM. In December last year, four French tourists were killed in the town of Aleg, prompting the organisers of the Paris-Dakar rally to cancel it because of fears of further attacks. Then three Mauritanian soldiers were killed, and later the police and alleged members of al-Qaeda exchanged gunfire in the capital Nouakchott.
