    Unconditional, lie prostrate upon the ground before us, 'have your emperor renounce his godhood'-type surrender?
    I doubt it.

    Was it good that the romans completely razed Carthage to the ground? Was it good that the assyrians impaled their captives in front of their countrymen as a form of psychological warfare?

    You can't really judge the past to any good effect. You can only learn from it.

    Worked for Rome and Assyria for many a century. That really is all you can ask of a policy.

    i disagree with both of those statements

    it WAS a good thing that america dropped the bombs.
    sooner or later nuclear weapons would have been developed.
    it's quite possible that some numbnuts country could have developed the bomb and held the rest of the planet hostage.

    about japans surrender, judging by the fanatical way japan was fighting all through the war even to the end it is clear that japan was going to go down swinging.

    This is called honour. (translation: honor)

    Something the US rewarded by vapourising several hundred thousand women and children.

    Drop the macho shit please.

    You can brag and flex your muscles when we are discussing a slightly less cowardly and dishonourable method of winning a war.

    Do you think marriage should be exclusively about "love"? Do you think that if two people stop "loving" each other who have had children, they should just go their separate ways? Do you think that two people, one beautiful, one ugly, should be encouraged to breed solely on the grounds that they "love" each other?

    Please tell me exactly what is so much better about our contemporary Western situation marriage-wise than in arranged marriages.

    Those things you describe are basically terrorism.

    You are american right? Don't you believe in that whole "war on terror" thing? Or does that only apply when it's YOUR civilians who are being bombed? What is the difference between an organisation murdering civilians and a government murdering civilians? If someone's father is a murderer, is it OK to go into their house and shoot them?
