There certainly is some bit of racism involved.

What with Neanderthals and humans intermixing is a purely European and (North)Asian affair.
The whole jolly african-americantits stormfront crowd will see it as "the good kind of multiculturalism/racemixing"

Also, a really interesting thing about higher cranial capacity =/= higher intelligence is birds.
Birds have evolved to be extremely lithe to facilitate flying. Which has altered their brains. Pound for pound, a bird will be far more intelligent than a primate with the same brain weight, because bird brains have more connections. The more connections you have in your brain, the more you can do with equal or less brain cells.
That's why you get shit like ravens with walnut brains out thinking chimpansees.

>>The more connections you have in your brain, the more you can do with equal or less brain cells.
This. People who make the cranial capacity argument forget little inconvenient facts like that the brain of an elephant is over 4x as large as humans, but they aren't even 1/4th as smart as us. Dogs have almost twice the number of neurons of cats, but are no more intelligent. Cranial capacity means (almost) nothing, except when looking specifically at the early evolution of genus homo (and that mostly having to do with expansion of the prefrontal cortex's volume, not the brain volume per se.)

Don't forget domesticated animals showing smarter behavior than wild animals, yet having smaller brains than wild animals.

(The shrinking is probably in fight-flight-response areas diminishing over the ages of breeding)

Probably the UN for not given' a shit, thought to be honest the Tutsi are kind of dumb in hindsight considering it probably could have been avoided if Paul Kagame and the RPF wouldn't have been raiding the Rwandan border, cause once Habyarimana died it pretty much pissed off the whole Hutu population and gave them more fuel for the "TUTSI BAD" narrative and convinced them to go through with it. In the end all it showed was that the Belgium truly were the most inept and imcompotent of all the colonial powers

Why do US retards think that the US won WWII single handedly? I drive uber and had some army guys in my car the other day and they were SHOCKED, MORTIFIED that I suggested that the USSR was both the superior fighting force and were the ones who defeated Nazi Germany (if any one force can be thanked it is indeed the Red Army).

I think its really important that Americans be told that their military is actually shit and they havent contributed a single fucking significant thing to the good of humanity in military terms besides an ASSIST in WWII. The rest of the entire military history of the US is predatory imperialist meandering around the globe and has been a net loss for humanity.

ITT we discuss good ways to teach americans that their military is evil and they are stupid to support it

Has anyone watched Oliver Stones "untold history of the united states"? I really enjoyed watching it. It's pretty dry history series but I think a lot of the /pol/tards on the internet should watch it as it really breaks down the whole illusion of right and left and shows how the USA is not at all what they've been told.

I find pre-columbian native history fascinating, the most interesting thing to me is the parallels between old world and new world history. Seeing as how they're completely separated by a massive ocean and had (most likely) no contact, it's really a great study in how humans deal.

Today I'm going to talk about the origins of the Inca and the similarities between it and Rome.

And here's one from a few centuries later that shows how the concept evolved as they got more knowledge of the area and the Russians expanded. It now shows a defined region of thinly populated steppe and mountain border countries that served as the buffer between China and growing British Indian and Russian interests from the north and south.

The flag is a lot closer to the Khanate of Kazan, a remnant of the subdivided post-Golden Horde time of nomadic empires. The tartar empire was possibly a thing as the cultural environment was hostile to feudalistic consolidation of resources. Its also difficult to exactly recreate what the size or scope of the kingdom or empire was due to the fact that nationalism wasn't a thing back then, and cultural norms were also way different. Thus they wouldn't have thought of themselves as Mongols, and certainly not Turkish or Chinese either, making for none of those powers to defend them in their time of need. Russia noticed this and took full advantage of it by waging several expansionist wars against the Tartars, eventually exterminating their political independence and making them subject to Russian Imperial vassalage, with the exception of those who fled east to China or south to the Ottoman empire. This exodus of sorts is how you get a distorted view on what the geographical size or makeup of this historical kingdom or empire was.

So lately I've been Indiana Jonesin, looking up lost treasures to be found.

For instance, near me in Illinois, USA, there's supposedly gold hidden in a place called the Sweetin Mansion.

Guy built a mansion around the time of the American Civil War. When the war broke out, he didn't trust banks to hold his earnings, and so hid his stash somewhere on his property. Later on he broke his neck horseback riding and his stash was never recovered.

Folklore says his stash is in a cave guarded by ghosts and rattlesnakes.

I'm thinkin about checking it out.

What treasure legends are around you?

Here in Arizona we have a large mountain range that separates the inhabited phoenix metropolitan area from uninhabited desert wilderness called the Superstition mountains. Legend has it a dutch miner found a huge vein of gold and hid his stash somewhere in the mountain range. I have heard different versions of the story but usually people say he told his sons where it was on their deathbed, but they could never find it, or that he died before telling them the directions, or whatever. I've hiked around there a few times but never found any treasure. People been lookin for years though for the lost dutchman's treasure.

I'm from a town on the Illinois side of St. Louis. There is small party of archaeologists that believe the tomb of Alexander the Great resides in a cave system in Marion County, Illinois. A collector named Harry Hubbard had acquired artifacts that were looted from the site and has put his reputation at risk for getting this idea into circulation. I think it is pretty outlandish, but the concept and the research they did is still worth looking in to. The radio interview with Hubbard is pretty interesting and has all the deets.

No, black people basically got their shit kicked in by everyone who ever happened across them. Whites, Arabs, Asians, and Jews all totally dominated blacks all throughout history. Nowadays, as whites are leaving Africa in droves, the Chinese are going to show blacks what real oppression looks like. Unfortunately for black people, the R word doesn't work on the Chinese communist.

I'm trying to discuss ISIS with my friends and family, but eventually we always seem to hit some sort of dark spot of ignorance. Questions like:
  • Why is ISIS about religion, unlike Al-Qaeda?
  • Why did America create Al-Qaeda and ISIS? Why is influence in the ME so important?
  • Why did Iraq invade Kuwait, and why was it important enough to cause the Gulf War?
  • Why was the US buddies with Saddam? Why did the relationship go south?
  • Why does the US fear Iran so much?
  • Why did the USSR invade Afghanistan?
  • What possible gain could there be in turning the ME communist?
  • Why does Israel exist?
  • What's Clinton's role?

This is just a fraction of all the questions I have. Please don't feel limited to just answering these questions. I'm really trying to understand the current situation and how we got here. I'm also looking for a good, mostly OBJECTIVE documentary on the subject (possibly impossible to find?)
Really, I'm just looking for an outline of the past 60 years of history, simple enough for anyone interested enough to ask the question to understand. I realize I could just google it, but most of the times the reasoning they provide is as dry and unhelpful as "it was a in response to this event".

I know this is asking for much, but face it, ya'll fuckers love history enough that you'll enjoy telling me everything you know. you enjoy telling ignoramuses like me what's up.

>Why is ISIS about religion, unlike Al-Qaeda?
They wanted ISIS to be more sensational. Al-Qaeda was actually a pretty lame boogie man, it didn't have enough lore or backstory for the media to make good fear porn out of it.

>Why did America create Al-Qaeda and ISIS? Why is influence in the ME so important?
They justify "the war on terror" that is actually a plan to destabilize middle-east to pave way for israels expansion. It's all about using other nations armies, intelligence services and mercenaries to advance israels interests. Pentagon is full of israel-US dual-citizens, and former KGB agents are now MOSSAD and working with the CIA. They make it so that Israel looks innocent all the while other countries around it are bombed to hell.

>Why did Iraq invade Kuwait, and why was it important enough to cause the Gulf War?
I haven't actually looked too much into this war, but my guess is that is was some kind of a test run for new military equipment and tactics that were to be used in the upcoming campaign in middle-east. They were already shifting NATO to be an invasion force ten years before 911 false-flag.

>Why was the US buddies with Saddam? Why did the relationship go south?
Saddam, like Gaddafi, Mubarak and Assad were and are not agents of the US-ISRAEL-RUSSIA-CHINA empire but ASSETS, their role is to be dubed into a war with a enemy they cannot win against so their respective nation states will be bombed back to the stone-age and they won't be a problem for the expanding israel, economically or demographically. This was all outlined in the NEW AMERICAN CENTURY white papers released by pentagon again well before 911-false flag operations.

>Why does the US fear Iran so much?>
They don't fear iran, they want you and people in israel to fear it. Iran is controlled opposition too. The tension creates a small cold-war in the region and justifies the huge military-industrial complex on both sides. Iran's revolutionary guards generals all have bank accounts in switzerland and get rich from weapons and dugs sales.

Hind sight is 20/20, trench warfare was the solution to a problem (the problem that mobile warfare in the first few months of the war was unsustainably bloody) however digging trenches created new problems. And yes there were dumb generals but there were also many generals that created solutions to the problems of trench warfare (like the tank, coordinated artillery fire, and small unit tactics to name a few) so it's easy to blame dumb stuffy generals for trench warfare but in reality there were forces at play that forced the hands of generals and nations.

And then the officer above him would appoint a new officer, basically if you did this then both sides would want to kill you. What I think you should have said was why didn't MORE people dessert, which happened like mad in the AH and Russian armies but every army had a problem with it. so this was not a well thought through line of reasoning
