The comments are a GREAT read. 3rd worlders vs. Commies/Russians.
Amazing to get a feel for the viewpoints of each on the other.
I really enjoyed it. Never seen viewpoints like this before.
Russians are unPC so they can do this. Whenever sailing russian waters, all weapons should be ready with pig blood dipped bullets. The russians should announce that all of their bullets are dipped in pig blood.
It was us Americans that came up with the whole pig blood war tactic during the Filipino Insurrection at the turn of the 20th century.
It was amazingly effective. I wrote my final paper to get my poly-sci degree on that conflict.
LOL, It seems that sarcasm slips by a lot there.
Yeop! I was spitting water out my nose.
I see you know history.
Too much of it, it is a curse- like being Churchill before he got banished and before they begged for him to come back.
I have degrees in Classics (focused on Athenian Democracy and Roman government) & American History & Politics (focus on Constitutional Republican government). I had good teachers, and continue non-stop to self educate in history. It is an addiction. But it leads to consistent madness; the best analogy I can think of is like being in a room full of blind people who also don’t have temperature sensory and the ability to feel pain and trying to convince them the whole room is on fire.
Knowledge is loneliness.
My knowledge of history may fall short of yours, but as to your tagline, I know one American who wouldn’t settle in Greenland- my Dad! He had enough white nights helping establish Thule AFB during the Korean War (Thule however, was definitely preferable to Chosin!)
Briefly the former British Somaliland was independent for about 4 days in 1961 before joining the UN Trust Territory of Somali to form the Somali Republic - on the basis of It seemed like a good idea at the time, and what could possibly go wrong?
In 69 the Somali Republic went pear shaped and gradually got worse until civil war broke out in 1988. Somaliland won and declared independece in 91. The UN did not approve, and to this day maintains the fiction that Somalia is one unifed state.
And the reason there is a Somaliland Press is while it's neighbours Somalia and Eritrea are rated as Not Free 7/7 Worst. Countries. Ever. for individual freedom by Reedom House, Somaliland has the highest rating for individual freedom in North Africa - Partially Free 4/5 (only marginally below Singapore)
Yeah, they are Islamic, but they make a effort to keep the pirates down and the jihadists out.
Hadn't thought of it that way, but it is certainly true. Ignorance of history, economics and human behavior is certainly blindness, however there is still a chance of discovery.
Thus the left creates revisionist history, environmental "science", and Keynesian economics to deepen ignorance should a useful idiot investigate the "facts".
