  • To be a little fair, it's not that the allies and the rest of the world didn't TRY to keep war halted after this one. The problem was, unfortunately, that the treaty of Versailles (particularly the impossible debt that they forced Germany to pay) was the creation of a few demons that would come back to bite them HARD

  • Awww everytime i heard of assassination on franz ferdinand i laugh its so dumb. 1. They missed car with bomb. 2. Ferdinand starts panic and starts raging on his driver (driver dont know german lmao) 3. Gavrilo Princip goes on launch. 4. Ferdinand enter the street and at the same time Gavrilo leaves the store and shoot him and his wife... Perfect time it was destiny to be at same second. SPOILER! Serbian government have nothing with this this was organized by Black Hand organization, war did not broke out cause of Serbs - Germans and Austro Hunagarians did not liked new emperor so they knew he will be assassinated in front of all those peoples so they decided to organize military parade in Sarajevo and put him in open car 🙈 Finally when that was done they finally had what they wanted many years before WAR and they were damn good prepared for it, they just needed reason like this - instead of kaiser wilhelm (lived long and happy till death in swiss) Serbia is guilty for war....

    • Mate, australia invaded both German new Guinea and Gallipoli. Even after the war, Papau new Guinea as a whole was annexed into australia as a territory in 1920. It was only when in the 70s Papau became a Commonwealth country, independent from australia. We weren't chilling, we were kicking ass.

  • If anybody thinks about it Rome is responsible for European Colonization because, If Rome didn’t exist, Byzantium wouldn’t exist, so the Ottomans wouldn’t have conquered Byzantium so the Ottomans wouldn’t have blocked the spice trade. spice trade would still exist so Christopher Columbus wouldn’t have tried to get to India which means he wouldn’t have found America and the Europeans wouldn’t know about the continent for a long time. (ps i know the Vikings and native Americans discovered the americas)

  • I know this is an oversimplified version, but seriously not 1 mention of Canada SMH ppl always sleep on what they did in both wars especially considering they were not in danger from the Germans. They helped right from the start, are the reason Vimy Ridge was taken back and had less men the most others but we're savage, ruthless to the enemy and tactically intelligent. Yes I'm Canadian so I do have some biases, but if you really read the history of the Canadians contribution many would understand why it bothers me they get overlooked in both world wars (except from the Dutch I know they never forget what the Canadians did).

WHO THE FUCK IS GOING TO HOLD PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE, IF NOT US?!?!?! Too scared to not be re-elected? putin doesn't have that fear so we need to think differently. Cyber attack is the optimal method. These puppet presidents are all good for nothing. They made people wear hats and shit to distract from their lack of strategy and even welfare of Americans. FUCK ALL REPUBLICAN clowns that voted against healthcare for the majority of the public! Fuck them and their mothers with a barbed steel electric rod! All this money in our Military, and if you're not using it then give it to the people/businesses struggling... How incompetent can these overpaid government puppets get? It's all a BIG JOKE!

  • The master class has always declared the wars. The subject class has always fought the battles,” Debs said. “The master class has had all to gain and nothing to lose, while the subject class has had nothing to gain and all to lose-especially their lives.” “They have always taught and trained you to believe it to be your patriotic duty to go to war and to have yourselves slaughtered at their command. But in all the history of the world you, the people, have never had a voice in declaring war, and strange as it certainly appears, no war by any nation in any age has ever been declared by the people.” “And here let me emphasize the fact-and it cannot be repeated too often-that the working class who fight all the battles, the working class who make the supreme sacrifices, the working class who freely shed their blood and furnish the corpses, have never yet had a voice in either declaring war or making peace. It is the ruling class that invariably does both. They alone declare war and they alone make peace.” “These are the gentry who are today wrapped up in the American flag, who shout their claim from the housetops that they are the only patriots, and who have their magnifying glasses in hand, scanning the country for evidence of disloyalty, eager to apply the brand of treason to the men who dare to even whisper their opposition to Junker rule in the United Sates. No wonder Sam Johnson declared that ‘patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.’ He must have had this Wall Street gentry in mind, or at least their prototypes, for in every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the people.”
