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
Ah, the Chosen People. God would be proud of their behaviour
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
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
I'm the same with certain stuff but it all depends on who it is.

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?

"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
