    It is pretty clear from this that you are incapable of making arguments based on facts and unprepared to defend even your own words. You found some charlatan who tells you nice little lies about your...

    Either this is a poor attempt at humour or I have wildly overestimated your intelligence.
  3. Not if it is based on some of the stuff in your...

    Not if it is based on some of the stuff in your post.



    So now there aren't any military historians making this claim? That was quick. As for 'common sense', that tends to be code for ill...
  4. Good luck to you building yet another 'Indian'...

    Good luck to you building yet another 'Indian' version of history, but I sincerely hope it is more soundly based than some of the stuff below.



    Which military historians said that? I would like...

    This has hit hard in Australia. While the two dead Australians is a blow, the real suffering is among the many thousands of Sri Lankan Australians. Most fled the Civil War and had hoped such scenes...

    Yet one more far left authoritarian regime decides to re-run the 'red vs expert' experiment that generations of previous regimes conducted with uniformly bad results (well, some were more disastrous...

    Most people here have been quite open about their 'qualifications'. They do not use them to 'feather their caps'. It is one of the ways we judge the worth of what they say. It is not the only way,...

    Well done DOR. If you keep this up you will...

    Well done DOR. If you keep this up you will finally earn the respect of our new friend, who was apparently once a member of an internet forum on economics. Then you can die happy having reached your...
  9. I haven't heard that story, but it isn't closely...

    I haven't heard that story, but it isn't closely connected to the phenomenon I'm describing. Napoleon sold himself more as a moderniser and implementer of the ideals of the revolution.

    The rise of...
  10. It isn't a 'new thing' in the west, it just got...

    It isn't a 'new thing' in the west, it just got sidelined by the growth of a particular sort of nationalist/bureacratic construct. Look at any European nation that isn't Iceland or some micro state...
  11. Can I just acknowledge this as one of the...

    Can I just acknowledge this as one of the funniest posts I can ever remember on WAB. Misplaced self confidence is a wonder to behold. Lecturing the Colonel on military matters is funny enough, but...
  12. Well I suppose I should congratulate you on...

    Well I suppose I should congratulate you on finally posting something that isn't some amalgam of cookie cutter 'anti-imperialist' left wing dross. Now you have moved on to gibberish.

    You are...
  13. SIGH! That is what I get for spending too long...

    SIGH!

    That is what I get for spending too long on boards full of screaming idiots all of whom mean every idiotic word they say. Our new friend would fit right in there.
  14. 'Fresh ideas'? You must be kidding. He is quite...

    'Fresh ideas'? You must be kidding. He is quite literally regurgitating, often word for word, the most cliched views of the 'activist left'. Worse, he is trotting out a joke site like globalresearch...
  15. New Zealand still is a peaceful country. This was...

    New Zealand still is a peaceful country. This was one person doing one terrible thing. I would hate to think any of our nations would be defined by a single event.
  16. 'Racism' has never had a simple 'biological'...

    'Racism' has never had a simple 'biological' definition. Remember that Hitler thought a fair chunk of Europe were a sufficiently different race that they needed to be enslaved or wiped out, yet they...
  17. If people are after some scale for this, the...

    If people are after some scale for this, the figures are awful.

    An Australian equivalent would be around 250 dead in a single day. That hasn't happened since WW2.

    For a US equivalent this would...

    Yes, several. In 1961 the conservative Menzies government secured its majority by 130 votes in a single seat - ironically the result of a handful of preference votes from the Communist Party. In 2010...

    Australia uses paper ballots for all elections. Electoral fraud here is virtually unknown. There have been occasions when ballots have been misplaced or lost, but the systems are sufficiently robust...
