    It's been my experience here and other forums banning sort of runs in multiples, 2, 3, 4 within days or weeks then things settle down a bit for a while.

    ?????

    I know I was gone for 30 days but was wondering what a squad of black Yankee soldiers has to do with baking cookies?

    ...but am glad I will never get a reply from you now.
    Forget about the Nazis. Look to much more recent failings to see what may affect the US.

Another truism about war is that, "In war, truth is the first casualty." For the winning side, it remains a casualty. I know with certainty that the vast majority of people around here aren't the least bit interested in the real truth. But should you ever feel like taking a walk on the wild (truthful) side, come over to The Truth Zone forum and introduce yourself to me. My username over there is moronfinder. Not that I go looking for morons. They seem to find me.


    I would suppose that we know more of the truth today than we used to. Obviously those who's turf the war is fought on know the best. But LT. Kelly's trial opened many eyes. But if you really think it through would you not guess that murder and rape ( literal and figuratively) would be part and parcel of teaching 18-19 year old's to kill and blindly follow orders then inserting them into the most threatening/stressful situations imaginable? It takes a lot of marketing to get a society to offer up it's sons to these risk. Both the risk to them directly and what they might have to become and the risk that poses to others ( the undiscussed portion of (PTSD) All of this is bad enough when the need for war is real. we have been in very few such wars since WW 2.
