>Rwandan genocide >1 million dead in 8 days using nothing but machetes and guns from the hands of some goat-fucking African Hutu militia in the middle of buttfucking nowhere
>Holocaust >only 6 million dead after 5 years with mass concentration camps, human experimentation, mass starvation, chemical/biological weapons used and the full might of the modernized German military
Holy shit Germans are actually borderline retarded when it comes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Rwanda was and still is a small, densely populated country, Germany is not.
The Rwandan genocide was undertaken during a period when the only thing the government was doing was killing Tutsi, helped out by the earlier introduction of ID cards that classified your tribe on them, the German government was doing quite a lot more than just killing undesirables.
I'm sure if Germany was a very small country with a very dense population and had decided to carry out the holocaust during a period when they had no other responsibilities it would've been a lot quicker... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The Combined Action Program was implemented by the USMC in 1965. The idea was that a relatively small unit of marines along with a unit of South Vietnamese soldiers and they would be stationed at a specific village and given the responsibility of holding that area. CAP marines would live amongst the Vietnamese and fight against communist guerillas in a way similar to how gangs in the US might fight over territory in a city. The program was considered a resounding success: CAP units were cheap to set up, had high... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What would happen if Israel was never created and all Jewish refugees after WW2 were just integrated back into western society and compensated for their loses in other ways. Would the middle east still be the shit show it is today?
Bonus points cuz I'm bored. What if the UN/whoever drew the borders for the middle east respected their unique views on what constitutes a natures borders and not all countries have to be a fucking nation state and left them alone.
There were no fresh bodies of water so the Maya channeled rain across their cities into cisterns during the rainy season. Priests were the ones who gave out the water and supposedly controlled the rains. A record drought hit and the authority of the priests dried up with the water and the civilization dissolved.
Also they had the only legit writing system in the Americas.
I've always been really interested in axes and decided that I should learn about them now. What sort of insight and good articles do you guys have on them, particularly on how and why they were used, techniques and strategies of any kind used with them, and why I have heard some people regard them as shitty weapons? Thanks in advance for whatever you can tell me.
First know that an axe used for war is not the same thing as an axe used for utility purposes. The blade has a much thinner profile and will break if used to chop wood.
The reason the axe was the signature weapon of vikings/raiders was due to the nature of their fighting style. The hit and run tactics used by barbarians do not favor a weapon such as the spear because it isn't as handy and formations weren't utilized in these raids. Swords weren't utilized because they were generally too costly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My money is on funtionalism. Conciousness is *probably* a mechanism to help us survive and preform the same tasks all other mammals on earth effectively. But from that we birthed existentialism, which comes with it's own sleu of problems.
But with that being said I could also see it being a quantum thing, or simply the conciousness exists in another dimension of sorts that we just can't discover yet. I believe fully mapping the brain will give some powerful insights. Ultimately whatever we think is probably wrong, and we will never be certain of anything. I... Comment too long.
