As a German it is always funny to read the Hollywood versions of WW1 and WW2. To the US-guys: please remove your occupation troups from our County and finish WW2 with a Peace contract. Trump was on the right way to do so. Thank you.

As an American, it's always funny to read how the defeated country attempts to justify and rationalize their defeat... It was never Trump's intention to pull US troops from Germany. It was threat to leverage your government to step up and pay their fair share for NATO. In 1945, US troop presence in Germany was to check Russian aggression in western Europe. It has since evolved into a strategic presence to quell Russian aggression in the region as well as the maintenance of our international defense and economic interests. We continue to exercise that right because WE WON the war...! You seem to confuse "occupation" with the concept of defeat and unconditional surrender..

Not too many nations throughout world history have defeated an enemy and gave them the luxury of getting their country back.. Germany, Japan, and Italy should be kissing the USA's ass for perpetuity.

Be honest, your troops are not protectors. The protection of Germany is part of a Hollywood view (the other part ist the written history: USA covers the russian war crimes und Russia covers the US war crimes ) .

As stated above, the main US objective is not your protection. You still enjoy that protection nonetheless whether you choose to acknowledge it or not... Our interests are for our own defense and economic interests in the region as is our right as the victor of war.

Your assertion of the cover up of "war crimes" is absolutely hilarious considering the genocide of millions. Your hypocrisy is truly laughable.

NATO is dead and should be abolished like the Warsaw pact.

As flawed as it is, if it wasn't for NATO, Every country in western Europe would be speaking Russian today. It's fairly arrogant of you to sleep under the blanket of protection that NATO (and the USA in particular) has provided, especially when you have not been paying your fair share for it.

I don't talk about history of WW2. History is written by the winner (Hollywood in the western hemisphere) and i read a lot of it in this threat.

Yep. Hollywood falsely portrayed the attack on Pearl Harbor, the D-Day invasion, and what the allies discovered at Auschwitz, Dachau, Arbeitsdorf, etc.. LOL.. If I was German, I suppose I would avoid talking about WW2 history as well...

You are at least partly correct that the winner gets to write the history. It's one of the spoils of war isn't it?

If anybody wants some information about my german view, please feel free to contact me over an email.

A bit late for this declaration, no? It seems as though you have already offered your "German" view on this topic quite freely. Your country acted as the aggressor and invader responsible for the genocide of millions people, then you lost, and now you are upset that you have to live with the results of that defeat? That type of arrogance amazes me... LOL..

If anybody celebrates that victory over Germany, that is ridicolous (best seen every year 9th of may in Moscow).They celebrate that 10-12 russian soldiers have killed 1 german. That is an neutral view, isn't it ?

So are you saying that the Soviet Union was not entitled to celebrate their defeat of Germany because they outnumbered Germany 10:1? Is this what you are saying? If so, maybe Germany should have considered those odds before rolling their Panzers into Russia during Operation Barbarossa... Just saying...

Now concerning NATO, I would agree that this vehicle, for the purpose of being a front against Russia, has outlived its purpose a bit. I do not longer see Russia as the main threat. I would look a bit more eastward for the real threat... I see Russia rather as a big old bear in his cave next door, best left alone and not messed with its own private affairs. Communist they are definitely no longer, rather an extreme form of predatory capitalism is now in vogue there. In fact, in my mind US+EU should rather come closer in cooperation to Russia than having a bigger wedge between them.

There are 2, and only 2, kinds of government in the entire history of the world:
  • governments with no limits on their power
  • governments with limits on their power.
What Russia is doing, what China is doing (and what the US is doing these days, unfortunately)... not capitalism, and is the result of having no practical limits on their power. The idea of "predatory capitalism" is an idea born of Marx and Engels.

This discussion of media generated historical viewpoints regarding WWII reminds me of a friend in high school. His dad was employed by the US state dept and was stationed in Japan following the end of WWII. My friend was born in japan and resided there until his family moved to the US in the mid-60s at which time he was in the 10th grade. From the movies he saw while growing up in Japan he thought Japan had won the war. It wasn't until he came to the US that he saw what is referred to above as the "Hollywood" version. Evidently there are those living in Germany that are subject to the same propaganda. Too bad people can't have enough self-confidence to seek an open display of evidence without picking and choosing to support a predetermined result.

You are quite correct @sgt_zim it was a rather poor choice of words on my part. I have quite a few Russian friends and the picture they paint of Russian (Moscow) society is one where only money matters. The more you have of it, the less rules apply to you. Where the rich will fully take advantage of less fortunate people and this is somewhat unwillingly accepted to be a fact of life.

This WW discussion is hilarious. Germany got it's ass kicked, not once but twice, by the free world. History is history and cannot be changed. Accept it and stop trying to change it. Just thank American generosity that we rebuilt the country instead of letting it remain destroyed.

perhaps.

but perhaps if more Germans had shown some backbone, like this guy...
View attachment 401821

we are all either free moral agents, or we are not. if we are not, then we're incapable of "sinning" (however one may define that word)

we are all responsible for our own actions, or we are not. but if we are not, then we're no better than barnyard animals.
How different history could be if perhaps more Americans had shown some backbone....

Ah yes. Let's do compare slavery, a universal throughout human history, to what the Germans did between 1939 and 1945.

But it’s ok that not enough Germans had the backbone to say “no” to what one man, one “leader”, wanted done to millions of people?
Ludicrous hypocrisy, and a ridiculous comparison.
This site is about information, healthy discussion, and helping each other out.
Posting photos of deceased victims of tragedies in human history has no place here in my opinion. Take it to Facebook or any other of those shit sites and let’s keep this one up to the standard it had achieved and maintained.

Earlier in the thread it was claimed that there are but 2 types of governments: One without limitations and the other with limitations. I think this is just a description of the framework on which the government operates. The soul of a government is the linear placement between Individual and country.

A couple years old, but just saw this today. Quite good and still very relevant.


I have no sympathy for Baltimore or the people who vote in this nonsense, just font move to a good state and spread your virus of idiocy.

Well the uk government has started its push against farmers and hunters....fkup
Or, it could be to make political move to make tree huggers happy, since it looks they are loosing the grounds on action to ban the trophy imports.

Friend in uk said he had spoken to farmers he knew, and they said it was to keep the vegans and other things like that happy....start of the slippery slope to total appeasement of these fktards
