Whats wrong with Natural Law?
Well there is natural law. However Aquinas supports man's law speficially the law of priests. He literally beleived that certain truths can never be proven and one must just blindly obey the priests that have been given exclusivivity. Essentially he turns God into his own personal sock puppet.
Why did Iraq lose so horribly in the Gulf War? I'm sure they had tons of veterans from the Iraq-Iran War that should have counted for something. It's not just that they lost, but they lost over 20,000 men with over 75,000 wounded while only 148 U.S. soldiers died
I know this is very hard for many people to appreciate, especially fellow liberals, but never in the history of mankind has a nation been anywhere near as powerful as the US. Mid ranking generals hold more power than entire continents. If it weren't for the fact that other countries have nukes (which yeah that's a bit silly to even say), and if the US didn't give a shit about consequences (PR n shit), it could take on the rest of the planet without really breaking a sweat. It's really really funny...

Technologically inferior weapons, total air dominance by the americans,army still somewhat fucked by iran-iraq war, not resorting to a guerilla tactic against overwhelming enemy superiority
Mfw when america got BTFO in any war after WW2 even Korea and has only declined in its might since.
Be realistic you might be able to quickly conquer 3-4 shit tier nations at once, 1-2 secondary powers and 1 great power (China and russia are debatable due to Terrain and stuff). You won't be able to hold these for long and america would quickly spiral into bankrupcy and massive civil unrest.
Desert Storm is fucking insane, and if it wasn't for the political landscape wanting to only take a huge shit on US affairs in MENA, it would be hailed as an exceptional victory with its speed and ferocity.

He is an affront to nature at this point, a homunculus.
An interesting map based on Ethnic Diversity. There are several different versions.
This is a variation on the map detailing CULTURAL diversity instead. Which isn't the same thing For example the notable difference of.Brazil. The above map has it as relatively diverse due to its racial admixture. This map notes, almost all of Brazil has the same language and religion and thus has it as homogenous.
except roman times when italians didn't sucked ass in war ?
Some of the greatest HRE generals were Italian, as well as some of the finest admirals (including those who led in Lepanto).
I'm always triggered by the trolling they get everywhere.

All I know is that my Faith is unbroken for 2000 years. And yours is a DIY mishmash without an actual Priesthood, confessional or real communion.
Who was the most "competent" man in history?
The one who had a job to do and executed it so well that everyone, even his enemies, had to respect him?
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this guy. I doubt that anybody didn't respect him from his entry in the Senate until his death.
"There is no dear friend, and no grave enemy, that I have not repaid in full."
What is /his/ favorite Native tribes/Empire, before colonization?
The fall of the Inca was actually pretty tragic when one looks at how advanced they were at least compared to other AmerIndian powers
If It wasn't for the Civil war they could have easily survived like the Mapuche down south did
>The present king of France is bald
What did he mean by this?
>So we do not have a failure of the Law of Excluded Middle: "the present King of France is bald" (i.e. ∃x[PKoF(x) & ∀y[PKoF(y) → y=x] & B(x)]) is false, because there is no present King of France. The negation of this statement is the one in which 'not' takes wide scope: ~∃x[PKoF(x) & ∀y[PKoF(y) → y=x] & B(x)]. This statement is true because there does not exist anything which is currently King of France.
When did logic become so obtuse?
