"People" have never had and will never have the right to choose to fight in some wars until their asses are blasted...

No. I only use Google Translate to find what Tolstoï means in English since I can't read French.:lol:

=========

About 50,000 Canadians died in World War II, a battle far from our shores. (As it happens, I know of one Canadian who died in France.)

These young men took crazy risks. xul, have you ever wondered why they did this? 

Yeah I thought the title was quite stupid and disrespectful of those who have died in wars. No one, but corrupt elites in power that have influence,love war.

An interesting story of 2 real WW2 soldiers.

Some youtubers call Mr. Hensleigh a looter. Maybe he shouldn't deserve the title. But what he did then, should not be considered noble. And according to him, such things were common in US army.

I hate to disappoint political-correctness believers who believe all American or Canadian soldiers joined the war for some noble causes, but the fact is:

Whether a soldier is good or bad doesn't depend on which side uniform he or she wears. In most cases, which side a soldier joined merely depended on which side the soldier lived.

WWII Veteran paratrooper Returns Wedding Photos 68 Years Later

Even though he is 92, Howard Hensleigh of Menlo Park remembers 1944 like it was yesterday. That was the year the Army World War II veteran killed a German soldier during a gun battle in Southern France.

"The sergeant that I chose to fire the first shot fired and of course they hit the dirt. Firing going back and forth all the time," Hensleigh said.

Hensleigh, who was an intelligence officer and assistant platoon leader, says he knew the German soldiers were not going to give up without a fight. He says he gave them several chances to give up. But a man he later came to find out was named Georg Reick give him no other choice. Hensleigh shot and killed him during a firefight. Hensleigh said he felt it was something he had to do in order to save his men.

"When you take prisoners you get all the information off of all of them," Hensleigh said. "I hate to admit it but they don't end up with their watches rings and anything else."

In this case, Reick was stripped of personal artifacts, such as pictures of his wife and family and his wedding photo: It was common to confiscate the goods from the dead Germans at the time. Hensleigh took them, and put his enemy's belongings in his personal scrap book.

They stayed there for 68 years until a young French writer named Jean-Loup Gassend came along out of the blue. Jean-Loup Gassend was interested in interviewing WWII veterans who served their country in Southern France for a documentary he was working on. While researching online, Jean-Loup found Hensleigh as one of the many U.S. soldiers who had fought in World War II.

Jean-Loup flew to the Peninsula to meet Hensleigh, and during their meeting, learned of his story and started to connect the dots. Jean-Loup then contacted the company that developed pictures. But the company was no longer there. He then sent them to the mayor of the small German town where the soldier lived.

The mayor recognized the dead soldier and put Hensleigh in touch with the soldier's grandson whose name is also Georg Reick.

The grandson and Hensleigh now e-mail each other back and forth. Hensleigh gave Reick's grandson information he's been longing for and Reick Jr. has pictures he thought he would never get.

Back in the 80's when I joined, we still had a lot of the WWII vets  around, and the ones who served in my regiment tended to agree that they were just bored sick of the Depression and desperate to get out of Canada to have some adventures, so, kind of war enthusiasts in a way.

Canada is a welfare-warfare state, a socialist state corporate welfare gulag propped up by the American military industrial complex.

War is the source of all the nice things what Canadians have.

Not true.  We have American excess including hyperbolic rants.

This is all starting to go away now tho, because the Americans have at this juncture rightly determined that,  in the event of war, Canada is simply a no mans land and of no particular use to them, so they are now clear to start pulling back their corporate welfare to Canada in order to give it to Americans instead, as the Information Age revolution displaces their industrial workers, inciting said workers to adopt the doctrine of America First.

Bear in mind, I'm not trying to bring Upper Canada down, Upper Canada is my real country,  I'm just trying to bring fake country Confederation down, in the meantime while I am saddled with its balderdash equalization communism, I am still paying to keep the lights on in Upper Canada, until such time as Upper Canada is free to move on without them.

Upper Canada is perfectly capable of collecting its own taxes, without having to pay for the Eskimos and whatnot, so after we rid ourselves of Eskimo Communism, we will just pay our taxes to ourselves.

So you're a free man if you pay Trudeau...

For the most part I am paying Dougie Ford, Trudeau skims off the top for his mafia state, but I have to put up with that in order to get the funding to Upper Canada.  I simply wish to cut Trudeau and his nanny socialist welfare gulag failed state out the deal, because he is right about Post National State, and I'm already there, but not as a Canadian rather as a UKUSSAN

Upper Canada simply remains my tether from which I float in the ether, so I'm perfectly willing to pay Queen's Park for the service.

1.The WW2 version multiculturalism: liberation and depression:lol::(

The real world is more complicated than Marvel's good guys vs bad guys universe.:P

 

2. I have watched many youtuber's parodies based on the famous "Hitler's rant"  scene of 2004 film Downfall, from Hitler heard that Trump was elected as President to Hitler watched Star Wars:The Last Jeda. I don't know how, but I suddenly got the idea to go further and more politically-incorrect------let Hitler play Winston Churchill to see what kind of effect it would make. :rolleyes:

Should read 'history enthusiasts'.  Only idiots are enthusiastic about war.

If you think so, you will find there are a lot of idiots out there...because:

1. Human DNA was programmed (by God, Allah, Buddha:P...., or evolution, etc.) to use wars as their last and ultimate resort to settle their difference. If there wasn't any war-loving DNA in human gene, there would be no war at all.

2. People are enthusiastic about war because they anticipate they will gain from war. No nation will go into a war for lose it. No man joins army for die for his country. Men join wars and take risk of dying for win. It's not too much different from what everyone does everyday----We drive to work for receiving paychecks meanwhile risk to be killed by car accidents or something on the way. Though sometimes people do miscalculate their chance of winning in wars.

3. Modern technology makes war easier for stronger side. Ancient warriors fought enemy by swords so they had equal chance to be killed by enemy's swords. Modern soldiers kill enemy by missiles and drones. They are beyond weaker enemy's reach and safe. This is why US, the country with strongest military in the world, always has greatest number of war lovers.:lol:B)

I have just watched a YouTube video made by Japanese war loving fan boys who dream about the war between US and China. I can't resist to crack a joke at them:

Japanese war loving fan boys finally got what they wished--米中空母機動部隊対決.

China fired a missile at US and US fired a missile at China.

2 missiles hit each other at the mid of their ways and exploded.

Next day during UN Security Council emergency meeting, Japanese ambassador jumped on the table and yelled to Chinese and American ambassadors: "Fuck both of you. Japan was nuked again yesterday...":lol::(

Another reason that human race can not settle their difference entirely via debate without war or fight is that debating needs facts which are recognized by all parties of the debate. Unfortunately not every man in the world is Holmes who used to gather and investigate facts in person. Which caused the facts people believe in are not facts at all but false information which is  selective fed to them by media, interest groups, deep states....etc.

Use the protests in Hong Kong recently for instance:

If you search "cbc news hong kong protest" you will get the results:

1. Jun 12, 2019 Defiant protesters in Hong Kong aren't backing down

2. Jun 16, 2019 Hong Kong government apologizes for handling of extradition law

 

So far so good eh? 

3.Jul 1, 2019  Hong Kong protesters storm legislature

 

It seems something goes wrong, then

4.Jul 22, 2019 Hong Kong police unleash tear gas on protesters

 

It seems like media writers has made the news towards right direction again. And their audience are eagerly waiting their next episode of the news. But where is the next episode? 5 days has past, but you can not get any development from CBC. Fortunately you can find this on Global News:

5. Jul 26, 2019 Protest held at Hong Kong airport against recent violence

 

Feel not good? But this....I bet you can find it from any western media but from their Chinese counterparts:

6. Jul 26, 2019 Elderly man harassed at Hong Kong International Airport, besieged by 'peaceful' protesters

 

How could the people who have only watched video 1-5 (like most people in western world) and the people who have only watched video 6 make a reasonable debate since the so-called facts they received from media are so different?
