Quote from: Cavebear on January 12, 2019, 03:00:20 AMBelgium had not the strength to resist a German attack. As someone said "Germany is too powerful for Europe, yet not powerful enough for the world".Kissinger?
Quote from: Baruch on January 12, 2019, 08:17:28 AMYes they can, in 1914. Are you Neville Chamberlain?Kissinger is a traitorous scum. He makes Darth Cheney look like a cub scout.Mr Obvious was talking, awhile back, about Belgian collaboration in WW II. I believe that, and communist subversion prior to Hitler's attack on the Soviet Union in 1941, were the primary reasons for the fall of the Francophone region to Hitler. DeGaulle was the only patriot in France at the time. King Macron I just cut a deal with Stazi Merkel ... to combine the French and German militaries. Treason runs deep in Revolutionary France, revolution and counter-revolution. Mr Obvious can't be happy with the Yellow Jackets. Will he join The Resistance aka Communist resistance to Capitalism? This time he has to ally himself with the new Franco-German Wehremacht.Historians have tried to make out that the fall of Belgium and France in 1940 were completely due to the master race aspect of German nationalism. This served the post war German recovery well. The swiftness of the fall surprised everyone, including Hitler. The prior Phony War was the false hope that Hitler would attack the Soviet Union first. Stalin knew this, and made a pact with Hitler deliberately, to let the West bleed white. He had wanted to make a pact with the West, but with the usual stupidity, was refused. And Stalin was disappointed that the Western front didn't drag on for 4 years, like it did the first time.
Quote from: Cavebear on January 12, 2019, 08:42:13 AMWell, that depends on whom you think to whom you think Kissinger was traitorous. He certainly understood Germany, and that was valuable to the US. And it IS true that the French fell in WWII about as fast as a bad souffle. I won't blame Belgium (small nation, big States, gets walked over from time to time).But I think Germany is not now what it used to be. It knows it won't be allowed to conquor anything. Neither will France or Great Britain. All they have is Europe among the US, China, and Russia. So, perhaps peace will fall on that unhappy peninsula of Asia after all the centuries.I think Germany and France and Britain have earned some peace.
Quote from: Halkenburg on January 27, 2019, 04:55:14 AMI learned about critical thinking and formal logic for the first time at the ripe age of 15 when I was studying math in college. I started questioning my faith soon after that and it didn't take long for me to reach the conclusion that I can't substantiate the things I had believed in all my life until that point.

Quote from: Cavebear on January 30, 2019, 08:21:43 AMIt is possible I may have misunderstood your previous posts...
Quote from: Plu on January 30, 2019, 08:24:33 AMThat's certainly a possibility. Did you think I was some form of theist?
