I wish I could've watched the whole game. It sucks not having Fox Soccer. I watched a little bit of it, until they shut my stream down. From what I saw, it looked like United was dominating. I agree with Panch, Neuer was a man. IMO, he's a top 3 goalkeeper in the world at the moment. He'll make a ca...

I can't tell if you're being serious, but Guatemala was never one of our rivals turned allies. Because of the Monroe Doctrine I guess there's a connection, but I'm indifferent to them. Guatemala does trade with us quite a bit, but I wouldn't consider us allies, so I guess no, I don't. The US is frie...

New French away. What do you think? I think they look really good actually.

The most amazing thing about the whole Libya situation is that the French were the first to get stuck in with the no-fly zone. I've never heard anything like it. It must be the first time their military has been in action since they sank the Rainbow Warrior (google it). I was also very surprised by...

The thing about the Japanese fighting style was that there was no such thing as "surrendering". The Japanese almost always fought to the death. The Japanese saw it as an honor to fight to the death and surrendering was seen as a shame and an embarrassment. What they would do is if they were being ov...

I read through the rest of the article and there were some pretty interesting things. There is a growing consensus among modern historians that the views as to the utility of the bomb held in August 1945 were correct. We now know that if the bomb had not been used, the invasion of Japan would have g...

I guarantee you I am. You've posted some things that show your lack of history knowledge, i.e. America is the main culprit for the slave trade. Japanese school text-books still refer to the total war Japan waged against China between 1937 and 1945, in which some 20 million Chinese died, as the ‘Chin...

History lesson time. If we're going to talk about war crime atrocities, Japan invaded China and killed 20 million of their people. Let me say that again. Japan killed 20 million Chinese civilians. And that's a conservative estimate. Chinese historians have that number all the way up to 35+ million. ...

I think you can? some "election campaigns" in the southern states seemed to be giving the message "don't vote for him, he's black." South is not the majority. The majority of the people in the United States live in the North or in and around big cities out west. The only state that is as densely po...

Well, Chancellor, but Yes, Germany has a women Chancellor. The German political system is odd. The President is the head of state in Germany, who is a man, but Merkel is who most people think of when it comes to leading Germany. Germany is predominantly white, though the ethnic German population is ...

There will always be racists in the world. It's a sad truth, but I think the US has progressed more than any nation in the last 30-40 years in terms of race. I mean, our leader is a black man. 60 years ago, saying something like that would have been laughable. I don't see many nations which are domi...

The thing is, barring things like national debt, the USA has the manpower and the resources to essentially fight a war forever. But that doesn't mean they should. Getting involved should make sense to the country and serve some purpose. The Iraq War was somewhat understandable, given the direct 9/1...

I think you'll find the US are taking the lead in the sense that they have committed more forces than every other country combined. They are playing it down through publitcity and handing over control to NATO. Of course this is different to previous deployments but in the end the US are still commi...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jap I really don't think there was anything racist behind what happened on Saturday. The large majority of Americans don't harbor any racist feelings toward the Japanese people. And just for the record, this is the first time (that I can remember at least) that a moment ...

Are we going to resort to name calling now? That's mature. On the other hand, America is the main culprit for bringing Africans to America and enslaving them for many years and causing years of discrimination towards Blacks in the first place. If you want to critique our racial attitudes, take a loo...
