2000 Redux

I keep thinking back to the 2000 Gore-Bush debates and Dubya kepting repeating "The army should win battles, it should never be used for nation building". Ironic

Saddam Captured

Window dressing! Thats all it is. After the US occupation of the country, he was never in a position to hold power again. They say they will hand over power next year, but the US influence will be running policy for years yet. The only difference is that it wont be Americans in plastic bags anymore

The Closet

Before I begin my thread, I am a straight dude and just want to get the views from the other side of the fence :-) A while ago, I went away on a weekend with some friends, a mixed group, four girls and four fellers. Known them all for years. We usually rent a self catering cottage for drunken pr

What's your own policy regarding lending of DVDs / CD's / fragile media etc to people

I'm the same with certain stuff but it all depends on who it is. I had someone who never returned a PS game (45 pound at the time) so with that person it became zero tolerance, and other people who dont take care of the lent items, well then it depended on how fragile/expensive the item to be lent w

But he did actually take Moscow, just that the Ruskies inconvenienced him by burning most of it. Check out this link, its not bad: http://www.napoleonguide.com/campaign_russia2.htm?PHPSESSID=de9f93ab233c2b36811690c94d6e13e2 But seriously, does no-one else think he was one of the greatest?

The Bible-Is there anything it cant do??

It all depends on which side of the argument you prefer, thats what makes the whole thing so damn freaky. They did an experiment with the names of thirty historical Rabbis, and the Bible code revealed their places and dates of birth. So statistically, the code may coincidentally reveal the places a

TV program to see.

Another interesting program thats already been slated in the US is Olivers Stones interviews with Fidel Castro. That would be interesting watching in my opinion. Wonder if we'll get to see that one?

The Bible-Is there anything it cant do??

Just seen an excellent documentary about the Bible Code, basically a mathematical theory that there is a hidden gospel within the Bible uncovered by the use of skip codes. This hidden book reveals details of human history, both past and future. It has apparently revealed the Kennedy and Rabin as

"ahem - Lets invade Russia in a Winter Campaign - ahem." I didnt say he was perfect nor that he didnt make mistakes, merely that he should in all fairness rank higher than he scored in the poll. Take his last battle Waterloo, although he lost, his speed at dividing the forces of Blucher and Well

Does anybody else find it strange that Napoleon scores so low in the "Greatest Military Leader Of All Time"? Even Rommel scores higher than him. Rommel was good but he was nowhere near Napoleon in terms of ability or accomplishments. Dont forget Bonaparte influenced Europes political direction fo
