Re: Two lessons from WWI

Hi Alexis, You have not posted on this website for so long now I was concerned that you had grown tired of us and bowed out. Glad to see you are still with us. The person on this planet who most needs to think about the lessons of WWI, and what befell the German emperor Wilhelm II, is US president D...

Re: WWI

. High ranking officers - mostly generals - have a duty to refuse to fight any war which isn't strictly defensive. But since they hardly ever are part of the cannon fodder, I suppose they don't mind. Have you not heard of charges like mutiny; insubordination; treason? In wartime you can be executed...

Re: 'Rah, rah rah!' for the Isthmus of Kra.

Indeed. Neither Russia nor China treat their "friends" and "allies" worse than the US does. Just a while ago the US decided to leave the INF Treaty, which means it has the intention of displayng such missiles against Russia. Which can only happen in Europe, and will automatically make Europe a targ...

Re: WWI

Today several heads of state celebrated the end of WWI, the most useless and unjustifiable war ever. Over 20 million people died - 10 million of whom soldiers - for nothing. Europe was in 1918 a lot worse off than it was in 1914, and the seeds were sown for another major war. The whole conduct of t...

Re: Jair Bolsonaro declared Brazil's next president

Hitler of course being the most prominent promoter of Social "Justice" Yes, his version of Socialism was National Socialism. He left the assets of production ie farms, factories, businesses etc nominally in private hands but told them what to do. Mussolini did the same thing. The problem here being...

Re: 'Rah, rah rah!' for the Isthmus of Kra.

True. But I have this funny feeling that Thailand - like the Philippines - may prefer China to the US... At least the Chinese are polite while they screw you... Sertorio, Nobody in SE Asia prefers the Chinese to the US and that includes Chinese dominated Singapore. It is only leftists or Socialists...

Re: The Kra Canal

Wake me when it actually happens. You would have said the same of the Great Wall... Or the Pyramids... :D Or the Nicaragua canal, or the superconducting supercollider.... Look, I'm not saying it's impossible, just that no one should bet the rent on proposals to build a 150 Km long canal that would ...
