The usual methodology behind death by firing squad, is no one shooter would know if the bullet that killed was his own. Indeed, there was often one rifle with no bullet in the chamber. There was always a chance that the shooter would avoid being the tool of state sponsored murder.

With the NKVD shit was completely different. Awakened in the middle of the night, taken into a dark dead end room and tapped once in the back of the head. A single gunman, a singular responsibility.

NKVD were some dark ass mofos.

It is not enough for Islamists to kill the innocent and seek the destruction of modern society, but they also feel the need to demolish history carved in stone. How does it make you feel watching this?

most of the shit listed in that can be ignored by half of the political spectrum on that basis alone. The rest can be ignored by anyone who is not European.

Assyrio-Sumerian art is relevant to the histories of everyone who has an old world cultural heritage. The first men to write are now having their writings destroyed.

Looking on a few good books on Imperial and post-Imperial Japan.

More specifically, something that covers :

  1. Japan from 1900-1945 (covering economic, social and political issues, hopefully something that talks about the econmic factors that drove them to war),

2. What war time Japan was like economically, socially, politically, etc

3. Something about the Japanese occupation of China (including Manchuria and the more fucked up stuff that happened in Nanjing)

4. Something about post-imperial Japan, how US neocolonialsm affected Japan in the years after the war, etc.

If you could hit me up with some PDF's that would be chill af. Thanks for your time

A History of Central Banking by Stephen Mitford Goodson has a chapter on Japan's banking system and the reforms it went through in the first half of the 20th century, and how it clashed with the Anglo-American system.

Wiki is considered the best and most up to date resource in some fields, taxonomy for example.

However I find it particularly bad for an objective understanding of history. I've read wiki pages over and over, and noticed the changes as years pass by. One can see the active effect of trolls on any contemporary controversy.

Can anyone explain why Emperor Hirohito got to live?
I once saw a picture of a group of Nazis in a cinema seeing footage of concentration camps for the first time. 2/3 of them being physically sick, not sure if the description were true but it was definitely Nazis in a theater looking very distressed. Has anyone else seen it? It was on Stumbleupon. Lost it in an HD crash.

People have made it their full time jobs to go out hunting for these animals and bringing them by the pound to government areas in return for ransoms.

An introduced species is only invasive when it starts to hurt the economy/ ecosystem. Economy aside, the ecosystem being harmed is a very "so what" situation. As bad as it sounds, not all species were supposed to still be alive. Of course, we shouldn't purposely eradicate species like Passenger Pigeons or Dodos... But there's a line.

Something always bothered me about pearl harbor and now I finally figured it out..

Why didn't they occupy it with their surprise attack? strategic position, relatively low resistance (I would guess)

Why did they retreat after the attack?

I think maybe we knew about it.

But the extent of the attack perhaps we underestimated, they destroyed enough of our fleet where they were able to survive for many more months than they would have otherwise. They controlled such a large area because of this, but perhaps their greed got the best of them because they spread themselves over too many small Philippinean islands, the biggest landmass they ever had was Thailand, and they knew this.

Without colonialism, we have:
Current Haiti, current India, etc etc etc. Past the discovery and utility of electricty, it is the closest for of an Aristocracy as you can get.

Granted, it'd be nice if they could ease off colonialism slowly unlike countries just forcing off their technologically/culturally/socially superior rulers within 5 years. India and South Africa could've REALLY benefited from a slow release on Imperialism so they don't end up in shitty squalors like they are now.

Trivia time! Guess the country. Pic relevant.

Keep in mind that the Sino Campaign had a death rate of around 1:10 for the Japanese: Enemy. They were used to pile-driving the fuck out of any fellow slant-eyes but knew that round-eyed forces were to be reckoned with (Commonwealth and Americans stationed there were annoying as fuck for them).
Losses in the Burma Campaign had the Shogunate (fuck, i love that word) change plans and head Eastwards to conquer the area that is more easily taken over and would put them in prime control of the Pacific. It also cut off any possibility of Australian advantage and they were the more technological advanced commonwealth country.
Besides, the Gurkhas aren't people to take lightly

Inspired by Manetho the Historian's threads. With this I hope to cover the Russian Revolution, struggles in the party, the history of the Soviet Union, and brief sections on the Comintern and other international communist shit.


1860's-80's-Nihilist movement dominates Russian revolutionary factions, interests held in the peasant masses but largely comprised of students and the children of the aristocracy, series of assassinations leading to the killing of the Tsar in 1881, Piotr Kropotkin notes in is autobiography they had a tendency to wear all black and discuss German philosophy (not important, just interesting)

Narodnikism appears around this time, main ideology of the Nihilists.

1892-famine in the Volga region and across all of the grain producing regions of Russia, Russian Government neglects to address it and hundreds of thousands to millions die, mass anger at the government leads to various Marxist, socialist, agrarian, and anarchist movements springing up.

-1893 Due to a mass exodus of Russian political exiles to countries like France, Switzerland, and Britain, a number of revolutionary organizations abroad spring up (for you anarchists, this is where Kropotkin really comes into play), in Switzerland a group called the Emancipation of Labour is founded by a group of Russian Marxists, including Vladimir Lenin

-1898 Russian Social Democratic Labour Party founded, bringing together Marxist and other left wing revolutionary factions into one party, similar to other early European Social Democratic parties, including the revolutionary groupings founded abroad.
