    Oh good grief, she/we dislike Wikipedia because ANYONE can post and edit. How can someone who acts so smart be so ignorant? What's wrong, difficult drumming up REAL sources to push your points? :roll:

    For all we know, you bloody well edited it yourself!

    Thank you for that read Allison.
    Wikipedia is a lot more accurate than Allison's posts. Perhaps you would care to show where it is in error...was there no French Indian War? Perhaps you would support Ward Churchill...if so, why?

    Take a look at the non-attributed screed posted as fact:

    "In 1997, around 1.1 million German soldiers were still officially listed as missing. According to the recently opened Soviet archives, which have been proved to be extremely precise and detailed, the Red Army captured 2,389,560 German soldiers. Of these, 423,168 died in captivity. In October, 1951, the West German government stated in the United Nations that 1.1 million soldiers had not returned home. In other words, we were led to believe they had died in Soviet camps. If we subtract the proven number of deaths in Soviet camps from the missing in Germany we arrive at the figure of around 677,000. Where are these men?. They must have been interned by the western Allies, the greatest majority being held in American and French camps where they died in their thousands through deliberate starvation, disease and hard work."

    REALLY? We killed 677,000 Germans and no one noticed? Every missing German was a POW killed by Americans?

    You find THAT believable?

    Yes, it is a pity one doesn't have to go further in research than Wiki to show how false the claims are. Perhaps if some here would read Wiki before posting anti-American rants, they could at least realize not everyone buys their version of history. In fact, almost no one does...

    Again - do you deny the existence of the French & Indian War? Do you believe a rant that suggests every missing German was a POW murdered by the US or French? Do you think the Battle of Okinawa didn't take place? Or that only soldiers were killed there?

    If you have some facts, present them. Cite your sources. Right now, all that has been offered is the idea that all missing Germans were killed as POWs...

    The figures on POWs comes from, according to Wiki:

    Ferguson, Niall, Prisoner Taking and Prisoner Killing in the Age of Total War: Towards a Political Economy of Military Defeat, War in History, Vol. 11, 2004, Part 2, page 186

    You know, this post has degenerated and strayed too far from the OP. I think enough has been said on both sides to satisfy my curiosity about who believes what. As such, I am done. It has just become too personally attacking and "one-upsmanshippy".

    See you at the next debate.

    This is a good for us that the leader of terrorism has been killed. I hope that terrorism will extinguish.

    One can hope, but in truth it will never go away.

    (I haven't read it all and don't plan to) but I just wanted to say: I think we need to get prepared for a hell of a fight.
