• Am I one of the few people that believe the official story of 9/11, but still think it's strange that "7 World Trade Center" collapsed?

    I believe the official story of 9/11, but I still think it's very strange that 7 World Trade Center collapsed despite not getting hit by a plane. I think it's going to take a lot (and years) of research to finally officially found out why 7 World Trade Center collapsed.

  • Would a far harsher Treaty of Versailles have prevented WW2 and saved tens of millions of lives and prevented tremendous damage to Europe.?

    Best answer: Unlikely, after Hitler came to power the Germans largely ignored the Treaty of Versailles any way.

    Swifter and harsher action from the British and French would have prevented WW2. None of that appeasement crap.

  • Why is war such a constant in our history?

    Why haven't we as a planet learned from hundreds of years of war, and it just keeps repeating itself? I'm not asking this from a peace-loving-hippy standpoint, I'm asking this from a logical one. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result. I was... show more
    Why haven't we as a planet learned from hundreds of years of war, and it just keeps repeating itself? I'm not asking this from a peace-loving-hippy standpoint, I'm asking this from a logical one. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result. I was thinking about the millions of young lives lost throughout all the wars, and it made me wonder how if the same effort that is applied to war, was applied to establishing actual peace, do you realize how far we'd be as a collective society? I don't know why this hasn't happened yet.

  • If Hitler had a nuke in 1945 who would he use it against ? Moscow? London?

    Best answer: The USSR (be it Moscow or other major area) is the most likely target as Nazi Germany was ideologically opposed to Communism and regarded the Slavs as "sub-human".

    Best answer: The USSR (be it Moscow or other major area) is the most likely target as Nazi Germany was ideologically opposed to Communism and regarded the Slavs as "sub-human".

    With the use of an H-bomb, the Nazis would've caused catastrophe to the enemy they loathed the most and frightened the bejesus out of the other main Allies, that a possible armistice may well have been thought of as a good idea on their part; with Hitler saving face from certain defeat and possible achievement of the "liebensraum" that the whole invasion of Russia was the thrust for in the first place.

    But it's all really guesswork. Who knows the workings of the mind of a sociopath.

  • Why did the 1924 immigration lead to the attack on pearl harbour?

    Best answer: No. The Japanese attack had several major aims.

    Best answer: No. The Japanese attack had several major aims. First, it intended to destroy important American fleet units, thereby preventing the Pacific Fleet from interfering with Japanese conquest of the Dutch East Indies and Malaya and to enable Japan to conquer Southeast Asia without interference. Second, it was hoped to buy time for Japan to consolidate its position and increase its naval strength before shipbuilding authorized by the 1940 Vinson-Walsh Act erased any chance of victory. Third, to deliver a blow to America's ability to mobilize its forces in the Pacific, battleships were chosen as the main targets, since they were the prestige ships of any navy at the time. Finally, it was hoped that the attack would undermine American morale such that the U.S. government would drop its demands contrary to Japanese interests, and would seek a compromise peace with Japan..

Would America use its atomic bombs on Germany if they were unwilling to surrender? I for one believe they would not have because Germans were white people after all and I do not believe the American public would have kindly accepted this act.. The Japanese were looked down as asiatic savages and many were sent to internment camps across America.

  • Why do weak leaders often follow strong ones?

    It seems that history is full of leaders that were great and revolutionary and then as soon as they died/resigned and power passed onto to their successor, everything they built just went downhill due to the incompetence of the successor.

    It seems that history is full of leaders that were great and revolutionary and then as soon as they died/resigned and power passed onto to their successor, everything they built just went downhill due to the incompetence of the successor. Some examples I can think of, 1. Marcus Aurelius and his son Commodus. 2. Alexander the Great and Philip III 3. Oliver Cromwell and his son Richard 4. King George III and then King George IV 5. Lincoln and then Johnson 6. Gheorghiu-Dej and Ceasescu 7. Gorbachev and then Yeltsin 8. Hugo Chavez and Nicholas Maduro 9. Hafez al Assad and his son Bashar In America this doesnt happen so much because of the nature of the state but we do see it often in other countries. Now why is this? Why makes these successors so incompetent? Is it because they never had to fight for power that they have very little skill in maintaining it? Then again, we do some successors who keep things smooth.

  • If the U.S. had not dropped the Atomic bombs on Japan and fought Operation Downfall would there have been another Civil War?

    Since for a fact that the country was weary after WW2 and wanted the war to be over and our troops home after Japan surrendered.

    Since for a fact that the country was weary after WW2 and wanted the war to be over and our troops home after Japan surrendered. Had those bombs not been dropped and invaded the mainland Japan we would have had to fight a battle 100x more brutal than that of Battle of Okinawa as Japan vowed a fight to the last man and were training civillians to combat the Allied Forces. A Naval blockade of the mainland would have tajen several months perhaps years to force a surrender. The Japanese government would have executed thousands of American POWs held in Internment camps. Also keep in mind that the Japanese were working on the Atomic bomb themselves, they were harvesting radioactive material in a nuclear power plant in Korea on top of that they were planning a chemical attack on the West Coast in Operation Cherry Blossom at Night. I don't think the American public would have wanted that and Truman would have been forced to resign or there would have been civil unrest. Be grateful we had leaders at the time that made tough calls. Dropping the bombs ended the war with saving lives. Lesson Learned Don't start something you can't finish. The Japanese government was entirely to blame for what happened.

  • Has there ever been a war in history where afterwards the victors killed all the men and then raped/interbred with all the women?

    Best answer: The sad answer is that that sort of thing has happened many times in conflicts in many parts of the world. The men (or most of them, never a complete process, some escape) are killed to prevent the formation of an opposing army.

    Best answer: The sad answer is that that sort of thing has happened many times in conflicts in many parts of the world.

    The men (or most of them, never a complete process, some escape) are killed to prevent the formation of an opposing army.

    The women are raped to dishonour them (in many societies sex outside marriage is a dishonour, even if by rape) - if bastards are born they are either killed by the mothers (usually seen as a sin) or they grow up and are shunned by their society because they are "half enemy people". That is why rape has often been used as a weapon of war, rather than to give the soldiers their jollies for a few minutes.
