In honor of grorious reader finally gracing us with a History board, let's have a thread about the greatest BTFO moments in history.
Based Dutch Republic. But the more serious answer would probably be Qing China getting absolutely ravaged in the 19th century, like holy shit what a downfall.
>By land and by sea we will battle with thee. Fuck your mother.
Though Sweden lost the war, I don't even know if it was possible to win that. Russians just had an absurdly large amount of people used as cannon fodder. It's the historical equivalent of zerg.
Wasn't that the same war where the entire russian baltic fleet was held ransom at england for killing a few innocent fishermen and sinking their boats, then they got diverted to madagascar or somewhere where half the crew died of sickness and many of the vessels weren't even seaworthy of Russia's main fleet.
That whole war was such a hilarious clusterfuck
>You Babylonian scullion, Macedonian wheelwright, brewer of Jerusalem, goat-fucker of Alexandria, swineherd of Greater and Lesser Egypt, pig of Armenia, Podolian thief, catamite of Tartary, hangman of Kamyanets, and fool of all the world and underworld, an idiot before God, grandson of the Serpent, and the crick in our dick. Pig's snout, mare's arse, slaughterhouse cur, unchristened brow, screw your own mother!
Bring the fucking bantz
This whole invasion,is comedy gold
>A small crowd had assembled, including several policemen still waiting for the customs boat. The British consul had received advance notice of the invasion and was waiting with his associates to assist the troops when they arrived. Uncomfortable with the crowd, Consul Shepherd turned to the Icelandic police. "Would you mind ... getting the crowd to stand back a bit, so that the soldiers can get off the destroyer?" he asked. "Certainly," came the reply
>Down at the harbour, some of the locals protested against the arrival of the British. One Icelander snatched a rifle from a marine and stuffed a cigarette in it. He then threw it back to the marine and told him to be careful with it. An officer arrived to scold the marine.
in that case its not your fault.
Philip said IF I bring my army there you will be destroyed. Sparta replied IF. as in yeah if youre dumb enough to try that you will win eventually but its not worth it. also meant that sparta likes sparta and wants sparta and isnt going to attack macedonia to try to expand.
philip is alexander the greats dad and neither of them ever tried to take spartas lands no matter how powerful they were
>and neither of them ever tried to take spartas lands no matter how powerful they were
Because it was completely worthless. The times of Spartas glory were long past and the Macedons had better things to do, like fighting the Persian Empire.
When Macedonia had finally some time to get bothered with Sparta, they took it down without much effort.
