Re: Charlottesville Race Riots

From Tom Woods podcast: "Keith Preston, whose writing I always find interesting and challenging, wrote an excellent overview and analysis of what happened in Charlottesville last weekend. He does the impossible here: this is as dispassionate as it gets. Enjoy." Listen here: http://tomwoods.com/ep-97...

Re: Truman, A-Bombs, and the Killing of Innocents

Japan was the aggressor. Many defenders from their aggression were tortured, attacked, starved by the Japanese. The Japanese bombed Darwin Australia in an attack which resulted in greater destruction than their attack on Pearl Harbour, but for some reason was kept quiet and not publicised as was th...

What benefit has there been from the US presence in South Korea?

Re: What would you do?

Are you asking the same in reverse? Namely, "What would you do if your enemy, who's already destroyed your nation once, parked thousands of troops on the border, and rushed Naval ships and bombers within striking distance?"

Truman, A-Bombs, and the Killing of Innocents

"And the worst of this atomic bomb tragedy is not that not only did the people of the United States not rise up in protest against this savagery, not only did it not shock us to read of this wholesale destruction of men, women, and children, and cripples, but that it actually drew from the nation a...

This isn't a thread to bash on Trump or any other president. This is a discussion about what would you do if you were president.

Re: North Korea and their missle launches

Are you suggesting a history of non-intervention prior to WW2? What did we do to justify Japan's attack on us? Is dropping bombs on people ever justified? However, since you brought up the subject (Pearl Harbor I think), let me refer you to this as a starting point (start with Chapter 4, pg 101 in ...

I am certainly not opposed to a strong defense to keep the peace, but defending is not what we've done for decades.

Would the posters prefer "killer" over "murderer"?

Or is there another preferred term? (more than likely vague and whitewashed)
I believe the preferred term of art is "threat neutralizer" or "collateralizer".
