Stop the weird spellings!

I am so sick of seeing the word “Belarusian” be used, instead of Belorussian for the Belorussian language! It’s Belorussian and I HATE how Wikipedia wants it to be spelled “Belarusian” because it’s British!  What happened to “Belorussian?” Did we all of a sudden decide to change the spellings on everything? I hate Wikipedia and I have no faith in it whatsoever! It’s Belorussian and it’s called “Anti-Semitism” not “Antisemitism” We are NOT speaking German! We are speaking English!

 

I hate the new spelling of the word “Belorussian” and I’m sick of Google Chrome’s autocorrect settings setting to “Belarusian” It’s like they decided to be in league with the assholes at Wikipedia again!

Battlefield/Red Orchestra series

Ah! Yes! The Battlefield, Red Orchestra, Day of Defeat and Source, series.  Where you die as often as you want and then be reborn at a different spawn point.  I’ve seen cases of what players call “spawn-camping” where people are gunned down right as they are spawning. That’s not funny, of course.  You can die again and again, unlike in a real war, where if you die, you die and don’t come back.  In the ARMA series, you also go up against real players online and bots in single player mode.

You never really lose anyone in a multiplayer game because so and so dies on one part of the map and spawns again on another. They almost always come back. You never really get attached to anyone. In Project Reality, you can build up fighting positions to impede, if not slow down your enemies.  In Project Reality, they’ve got a new World War II mod.  There’s a guy running around with a Sturmgewehr 44 in June of 1944.  Wasn’t the StG used, you know, like 6 months later? Did they have any in use on June 6, 1944? I’m kind of skeptical, here. Of course, I don’t recall if there were any of the halftracks with the Quad .50 mounts on Crete in Men of War, either.

I remember the original vanilla Battlefield 1942 where you had Tiger Tanks and Shermans dueling on the beaches, instead of say, over 50 miles inland where they ACTUALLY were. Of course, no game is completely perfect. I’m tired of people online lumping me in with serial killers because I have an eye for details, just like them. Yeah! And unlike them, I don’t go out and kill anyone. This isn’t ARMA 2 where you can just walk into a building a machine gun all the people in a room. Same with GTA V.   You can set up PaK-36 guns in Project Reality World War II and now they’ve got Rising Storm 2 Vietnam, where you can fly helicopters, namely the UH-1 Huey and AH-1 Cobra series.

What about having captured French artillery pieces for the Normandy maps?  I remember something else about BF1942, where the Americans were at an Arnhem, instead of the British. This was the original vanilla game that had so many flaws in it. Did the Japanese ever receive any Sturmgewehrs? Not that I can see.  In the vanilla game, you can see them in the Battle of Midway in 1942.  I could go on about anachronisms in various video games.  The H&D2 Spaghetti Airport mission has the Italian flag that was adopted in 1946, and not the correct one for the Kingdom of Italy that was used from 1861-1946.  The Italian flag does not have the house of Savoy symbol on it. It’s the Italian flag with no symbols on it.
The planes in the level have Italian markings on them.  There’s a little Panzer III that comes out to fight you in the Spaghetti Airport level. I thought that the Italians used the Carro Aromato tanks M13/40 tanks.  The heavy machine gun posts have MG42s, instead of the Breda Model 37 heavy machine gun.

I have no real modeling experience or have any experience with coding to be able to make a mod for any game.  Coding is not hard, but I would like to be able to have actual time to sit down and make models for various video games.  I don’t know why the British SAS guy says that the drum is no good for stealth missions because you can hear the bullets rattle through it. That’s also in H&D2.  Well, the British pretty much used the M1928 Thompson sub-machine gun with the 50 round drum magazine throughout the entire war. One of the symbols for the Commandos was a M1928 Thompson sub-machine gun imposed as their symbol.  It supplemented the Sten sub-machine gun in British and Commonwealth service.  The Australians had the Owen sub-machine gun with the same 9 mm ammo that the MP40 and Sten carried.

Operation Finale: an abomination of a film

I saw Operation Finale today in theaters on Sept. 13, (Thursday) 2018 and it had some good parts and bad parts. I can’t believe that the film presents a sick monster like Eichmann as a Good Catholic! Do they not know about or even care about the millions of Catholic Poles that gave their lives to fight animals like Eichmann? Well, at least Eichmann was being honest when he said that his people were like animals.  Well, he certainly did believe in the Social Darwinist bullshit that the Nazis espoused. Pretty much all of them did.  Eichmann was a pretty bad character and was one of the leading architects of the Holocaust.  Are we going to have a politically-correct pity-party over Christians being Nazis?

Do the lives of Orthodox Christians in Belarus, Yugoslavia, Ukraine, and Eastern Europe not matter, too? I think that someone should make a movie about the persecution of Orthodox Christians in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. Of course, I’m going to be branded a “Holocaust denier!” by all the simpletons (like Debbie Schlussel) on the internet. Sure! Sure! Like hell am I a denier of one of the most disgusting episodes in all of the history of mankind! In my opinion, this film espouses Schlussel’s, Geller’s, and Angela Merkel’s twisted, tortured, and prejudicial view of history!  It’s not Holocaust denial to tell the truth. Yes, we all know about the 10 million who died at the hands of the Nazis and the 70-80 million who died at Soviet hands from 1917-1991. What about 75 years of Soviet tyranny for the people of the Soviet Union? This is not to belittle the Holocaust in any way. The Holocaust is currently the most well-known genocide in the West among scholars.

I also think that the film also espouses Che Guevara’s view of history of the Catholic Church and the fascists being inexorably linked in a theocratic fashion.  Don’t they know that many Catholics opposed both the commies and fascists in Latin America? Argentina in the 1960’s was undoubtedly a dictatorship, like Nicaragua and Cuba.  Yes, the Catholic Church has a rather bad history among people in Latin America, but we must also point out how the Church helped many of the poor and needy in Latin American and it’s not just Catholics, but many Protestant denominations have done so, too.

The Nazis had many who were Lutherans as well. The Nazis were not exclusively Catholics as this film presents.  Too bad that the film does not talk about Martin Niemöller and his experiences with the Nazi regime and his persecution by said regime.  Yes, Niemöller did initially support Hitler, but later changed his tune when the Nazis tried to pervert Christian theology to support their twisted worldview.  The Nazis’ efforts to pervert Christianity failed spectacularly, contrary to what the Soviets would have you believe.  Must we believe in the Soviet version of history in this film?

 

Do you seriously expect those atheist pigs who make movies to believe that men like Eichmann are good Catholics? Of course, they believe it!  I refuse to call anyone names over this. What about atheists who were persecuted by the Nazis? Of course, not all atheists are communists and not all communists are atheists. Of course, my thinking could be considered “tortured” as well.  I want to talk about the millions of Catholic Poles who died under Nazi and Soviet rule from 1939-1990. 51 years of tyranny from these monsters! I am Polish and our people suffered 50 years of tyranny from BOTH of them.  Not just us, but Ukrainians, Serbs, Croats, Yugoslavs, Czechs, Slovaks, and others ALSO suffered under communist and Nazi tyranny.

Great! And I suppose they’re gonna tell me that Stalin was a good Orthodox Christian, right? What about Lenin? Are you gonna say the same about him? Was Lenin a good old atheist? You decide that one!

Look, I do not hate the Jews as a whole. They are just human as anyone else. When is the politically-correct pity-party about Nazi guilt going to end?  Not all Catholics in Latin American countries supported the Nazis or the Communists. Many were against both. Why? Because they destroyed entire countries with their corrosive ideology. Of course, Latin America has always been rather authoritarian, which kinda flies in the face of the whole idea of non-whites not being racist.  Latin American racism makes the KKK look childish by comparison.

Dishonesty in War Movies

Well, look at Platoon for example. Berenger’s character can just kill a Vietnamese civilian without mercy. Yes, I understand that they are not documentaries. Of course, even documentaries get things wrong from time to time. Well, I’m sick of those Japanese apologists who bash honest documentaries like the Murder Under the Sun documentary. I guess History Channel was too pro-American. These people are sick! Anything that shows the Allies uncovering Nazi crimes, these people call “propaganda!” Of course, they’d call me a “Nazi” for pointing out flaws in their films. Lepa Sela Lepo Gore, was not exactly honest either. I felt that the movie sanitized a lot of the Serbian war atrocities in Bosnia and I feel that Behind Enemy Lines only showed the massacres and not the soldiers taking sadistic pleasure in raping Bosnian women repeatedly! I feel that Lepa Sela Lepo Gore sanitizes the level of hatred in Yugoslavia. The foul-mouthed drunken tirades of Milan and Halil. Of course, it was Milosevic’s Serbia and they had to sanitize a lot of stuff in that movie. I think that the movie’s film-making is flawless, but the whole plot is corny, like so many Eastern European movies. The Chetniks the Fighting Guerrillas movie does not show the factionalized warfare between the Partisans and the Chetniks. It doesn’t show the Ustase atrocities, either. It’s too bad that Pavelic was never tried at Nuremberg, like he should have been! I felt that Behind Enemy Lines did not show enough of the Serbian brutality and it just ripped off a scene from the movie Savior clearly showing Croats gunning down civilians out of a bus! The movie shows the utter sadistic hatred that the Serbs had for their Muslim enemies, but it doesn’t show the same thing for the Muslims! The Bosniak soldiers in that movie aren’t wearing Army BIH issue uniforms. They’re just civilian guerrilla fighters. The Army BiH was the one mostly fighting the Serbs and the Croats, too. They weren’t saints, either. Yes, the Bosniak people did admire Western popular music at the time and even copied the style of it to make their own lurid war songs. All sides did that. Propaganda songs trying to raise the morale of the soldiers fighting in that war. These were film studios doing it with actors and some real soldiers. It was propaganda. It showed the rather warped mentality that the Slavic armies believed during these wars. The Serbian and Russian armies had little to no compassion for civilians and killed thousands of them! They tortured and raped and killed thousands! This is just another day at work for these people!

I feel that Behind Enemy Lines did not show enough of the Serbian brutality in that war and the movie Savoir sanitized a lot of it.  Of course, Oliver Stone and his fake movies. They’ve got a nice plot to them, like JFK.   Of course, the milquetoast Law & Order style plot of JFK is rather hokey.  It’s conspiratorial garbage, like Independence Day.  This Binkov’s Battles guy on YouTube with Millennium Falcon video says that our weapons would have penetrated the shields of that craft. Does that mean that Independence Day is all wrong?  In Independence Day,  the American F/A-18 Hornet Marine Corps fighter jets go up against these alien spacecraft and their missiles fail to penetrate the shields of the alien saucer craft. All of the American fighters are show down and Will Smith is the only survivor of the entire attack, minus the alien in the spacecraft. He punches the alien and knocks it unconscious and he drags its body across the burning hot desert and he takes out his frustration and his anger out on the alien and kicks it. I have a question. Why didn’t the alien come back to life? Why did the alien only come back to life in the fictitious Area 51 facility and kill Dr. Okun and his team? Why didn’t the alien regain consciousness while being transported in the truck to Area 51?

Why didn’t the Sea King helicopter pilots scream “OH SHIT?” and try to get the hell out of there when they were shot down by the UFO? They were the first casualties in that whole movie.  Any normal helicopter pilot would have sped up and got the hell out of there, instead of just hovering there and being zapped. Independence Day shows huge monolithic alien spacecraft destroying whole cities with their lasers and killing hundreds of millions of people all over the world.

The Russians panicked when they say the UFO heading to Moscow. Why didn’t the Russian VVS scramble jets to shoot it down?  Of course, the LAPD tells people to not shoot their guns at the alien spacecraft. Come on! Of course they’re gonna! A thing like that eclipsing the sun! I’d be afraid if I saw something like that over my city.  Well, the craft in Russia was going at such speeds through the earth’s atmosphere and creating a such a fireball that the E-3 AWACS plane was incinerated by it. Wait, I meant to say that the helicopter pilots were the first “COMBAT” casualties in the movie. Why didn’t the pilots see the craft beforehand? The AWACS is a very slow plane, but they probably would have found a way to dodge the fireball.  Independence Day has a great plot to it, but its depiction of the US military is utterly farcical and laughable!

The movie just emphasizes too much the conspiracy theories about Area 51 that were common at the time. They’re still ongoing, of course.  The Russian Air Force probably would have scrambled MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter planes or whatever they had available to shoot at it.  Why didn’t people take RPG’s and shoot them at the alien spacecraft? Those Russian soldiers would have taken their Kalishnikovs and sprayed bullets at them. It would have done nothing, of course.

The Americans, too would have done that.  Why did the Americans wait to attack the UFO after LA was vaporized, the next day?  Spoiler alert! Harry Connick Jr dies in the movie!

The F/A-18 Hornet USMC fighters had no chance against against the alien spacecraft and its associated fighter planes. Why did they wait until later to hack the aliens computer system? Why didn’t they do it then? Why didn’t some Russian guy come up with it? Those people are famous for that stuff! It takes David to come up with the solution, after all else had failed! The whole scene with the B-2 Stealth Bomber launching nukes at the spacecraft was rather questionable. They callously killed their own people in Houston!

What military does that? Of course, you never saw people going up to the craft and flipping off the aliens inside it! I would have! There was a scene where the people are zapped by the UFO as are tens of millions more,  on the rooftops. I would have taken my AR-15 and shot at that thing.  They didn’t have the people with machine guns shooting at the UFO! I think that someone would have set up a machine gun and tried to shoot at it.

No one has called Saint Petersburg Petrograd since 1917! The poor, garbled Russian is again laughable. Of course, the writers knew NOTHING about the Russian media! The Russian media would have blamed NATO and the Americans for the whole UFO craft in their typical slanted yellow journalism. It was Yeltsin’s Russia at that time.  There would have been conspiracy theories flying all over Russian media. They had access to Russian state TV in the movie, which is not a surprise.  The Russians running scared in horror at that thing!  Of course, there were few Russian spellcheck programs available in 1996 to help them out. Microsoft was just developing Cyrillic texts for Windows 95 back then.  Of course, it’s abysmal!  Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Russian media blamed Israel for the UFO!

Why didn’t Orthodox priests go up to the craft and perform prayers in Russian? The one Jew performs prayers in Hebrew and the guy in the shelter says that he’s not Jewish. And David’s dad replies “No one is perfect!” And continues in Hebrew.  Independence Day is a laughable fanciful movie that encapsulated the 1990’s atmosphere of the day.

B-17 The Mighty Eighth: A Review

As a gamer, I have played the famed flight simulator B-17 The Mighty Eighth on the PC. It’s a PC game only. It’s has some nice, but haunting music as its theme music at the beginning of the game.

The game will let you play a campaign where you can command a single B-17 and be ordered to bomb a certain target and it will let you command a whole 12 bomber ( a full dozen) formation and you can select whatever target(s) you want to, all throughout occupied Europe from 1943-1945. There is a problem with the game. You can only command the 8th Air Force bombers and you can’t fly a campaign with either the 12th Air Force or the 15th Air Force, bombing Italian, German, Bulgarian, Hungarian, and Romanian targets in southern Europe in the Balkans, for example in Yugoslavia, Greece, and Bulgaria. It would be nice if you could bomb that aerodrome in Zemun by Belgrade or the Ploesti oil refineries. That would be sweet if you could bomb those oil fields. Hell, yeah! The most heavily-defended target in all of Europe, flying B-17’s out of Italy or B-24 Liberators. The other problem with the game is that nobody made a mod where you can fly medium bombers for the 9th Air Force, you know, the B-26 Marauder. In CFS3, you can fly the B-26 Marauder.  I would love to be able to fly a B-26 Marauder in that game and I can actually do that in Il-2 Sturmovik 1946 with the Community Universal Patch that a group of obsessed mod-makers made to add more planes to the game.

It would have been more fun if B-17 The Mighty Eighth would let you land your bombers at bases in North Africa and the Soviet Union. Many B-17s and B-24s landed in the Soviet Union after flying bombing missions in Eastern Europe that were the extent of their range from the United Kingdom or flying out of Italy.  I think that it would be hella sweet if the Red Tails could be escorting your formation! I would love to see someone make a mod where you add the Tuskegee Airmen to the game. They were among the best combat pilots during the war and they had to endure racism and discrimination and be able to get past all that, just to fly P-51B Mustang fighters.

It would be nice if the fighters escorting you had squadron insignia and painted tails and noses to set them apart in the skies above Europe during World War II.  It would be hella sweet if you could fly to Italy or North Africa or fly to a neutral country, you know, such as Turkey or Sweden and land in a neutral country and have your plane interned by the Turkish, Swiss, Swedish, or Spanish authorities. It would be nice if you could land your plane in Spain, if Spain was the closest country that you could fly to, to be interned for the rest of the war and if you do that, your crew won’t be allowed to fly anymore, or at least your plane won’t. Your plane will be listed on the registry at the base that it was interned in Sweden, Turkey, Switzerland,  or Spain. These above countries were pretty much the only truly neutral countries during World War II, even though Francisco Franco pretty much supported Hitler and even sent him troops to fight on the Eastern Front against the Soviets. The Eastern Front was a meat-grinder for the German army, ever since 1941. The German could have taken Moscow around September of 1941, but the Soviets held them back.
I think that it would be nice if you fly your B-17 Flying Fortress bombers from bases inside the Soviet Union to fly back to the United Kingdom or to bomb other targets in Eastern Europe.

I would love to make a mod for that game, but I have no real experience with coding or to add 3D models to the game. If I could do that, I would. I would call it B-17 the Mighty Eighth realism mod.  If I could make the 12th Air Force, 15th Air Force, or 9th Air Force into flyable units, that would be sweet. Or better yet, you could serve in the Pacific flying B-17s and B-24s over there against the Japanese. It would be nice if you could add the 7th Air Force in the Pacific against Japan.  Or the 21st Bomber Command, under Curtis Lemay against Japan itself.  If you could fly the B-29 Superfortress against Japan, and be actually transferred from Europe to the Pacific, that would be fun, too.

It would be nice if you could add the RAF and have them bomb German cities at night and have the German cities reduced to ruins by RAF bombs, from Lancasters or the Short Stirling or whatever the RAF or RCAF were flying in Europe. I think if you could add the RAF squadrons in B-17 The Mighty Eighth escorting B-17s into occupied Europe that the range of the Spitfire would allow them to go, that would be fun, too. What about adding the Bf-110 or the Me-210 or the Me-410? Those were very good bomber destroyers.  It would be nice to add the RCAF or the Polish squadrons, flying with the RAF or the Czech squadrons.  The Polish squadrons would be flying for the Polish Air Force, which was subordinated to the Royal Air Force during the war.
Is there anyone who can record voices of Polish-speakers speaking with Polish accents in the English language? You could add English spoken with a Czech accent, too. What about Canadian accents for the RCAF? That would be awesome, too. I wish that I could create a mod, instead of just talking about it. I’m all talk and no walk! Well, you try creating modifications for computer games and actually have them work, you know without crashing to desktop or freezing or whatever.

What about having Japanese voices for the Japanese pilots in the Pacific? Are there any Japanese-speakers that can help me? Why not just take the voices from the IL-2 Sturmovik series and modify them to work with B-17 the Mighty Eighth?  You could do that.  Someone also made Chinese voices for IL-2 Sturmovik and posted that on a website somewhere. Wouldn’t it be sweet to fly for the 14th Air Force out of China and India? I would love to fly missions over French Indochina and Thailand, and Burma, and the Japanese-occupied parts of China, hell even bomb Japan itself.
Of course, if you do fly the European-style strategic “pinpoint” over Japan, you will be disappointed because there was something called the jetstream that was not real understood at the time of World War II that was the cause of most of the bombs landing off target when bombing Japanese targets, like they did in Europe. Why not bomb Italian targets and have a game that takes place in 1942? You can bomb Italian targets in Italy, or if Italy capitulates and becomes an allied co-belligerent country, bomb targets in German-occupied northern Italy or targets that were in German-occupied Italy, but were liberated by the Allies in their advance up Italy or Greece, or the Soviets taking over Yugoslavia and installing Tito as their leader.

Wouldn’t it be nice to fly for the 12th Air Force and bomb targets in Italy? You know? To bomb the harbors in Naples or Taranto or any other ports and other targets, such as aircraft factories, being used by the Italians to build fighter planes to fight the Allies. Not just fighter planes, but bombers, and tanks and whatever was made by the Italians with their rather small industrial capacities during the war. You could bomb the Italians in Yugoslavia that are fighting the Partisans or Chetniks and attack German, Italian, Bulgarian, or Hungarian positions inside Yugoslavia. I could make a mod and do that.  Wouldn’t it be nice to sink Italian ships? I think so. You could take the Italian voices from IL-2 Sturmovik and modify them to B-17 the Mighty Eighth.

The thing that was really disappointing with the Mighty Eighth game was that the Bf-109’s 20mm cannons did not a really effective punch against the B-17s. I felt that the 4 20mm cannons in the Fw-190s did far more damage and were more effective than the 2 20mm cannons in the Bf-109s.  The Bf-109’s punch was not very good, but in IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, you could massacre a whole unescorted formation of B-17s in no time at all. There was a mission where you could fly only as the Luftwaffe in Bf-109s against a whole formation of B-17s.  I most often failed the mission because the Bf-109s were using the wrong tactics when attacking the B-17 Flying Fortress formation in that mission. They were coming directly behind the B-17s and attacking them that way, without the use of the underwing gun pods that were fitted to the FW-190s and Bf-109s so that they could destroy more bombers.

The other problem with B-17 The Mighty Eighth is that the bomber gunners were hitting planes at unheard of distances with their 50 Caliber Machine guns and 8 times out of 10, usually being able to shoot down a Bf-109 or FW-190 and you can literally make ersatz “aces” out of those bomber gunners because they down so many damned German planes in one sitting!

I don’t know the exact numbers of bomber crewmen that became “aces” from shooting down many German fighters, but I know that it was not a very high percentage of B-17 or B-24 gunners.  The game does not account for leading an aircraft that you are targeting with your ball turret guns. The problem with the Mighty Eighth game is that the ball turret gunners frequently shot down over 70% or or more of the attacking Luftwaffe fighting forces attacking the formations in the game. You just don’t have hundreds of German fighters attacking a single bomber stream of B-17s or B-24s, like you did in the actual war.

It would be hella awesome if you could have a multiplayer campaign where you fly with other teammates from around the world in a coop or whatever, flying missions against various targets inside Europe or the Pacific or the Mediterranean.
Sadly, Mighty Eighth does not have that capability. That’s okay, it’s not all bad! You can still fly with intelligent AI and the AI are usually able to fix up a bomber crewman if he becomes wounded by enemy fire, but you aren’t gonna always be able to save your fellow bomber crewmen because they bleed to death. And in that game, they do bleed to death and you hear gurgling noises, indicating that this crewman, or these certain crewmen are wounded and need medical attention.  You can parachute wounded crewmen out the B-17 and have them land in occupied German territory and get patched up (Uh YEAH, if their lucky and don’t bleed to death on the way down in a parachute) by the the Germans, Italians, or Japanese or insert other Axis countries, like Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, or Japan.
You could take the Hungarian and Romanian soundfiles and modify them to work with B-17 the Mighty Eighth. I know that it is such an ancient game, but it’s a good game. It’s still fun to play and I grew up playing games like that in my childhood.

Of course, the infamous swastika marking is not added to the tails of the German planes, just so that the game will sell over in Germany and not be banned by their ridiculous censorship laws that they have over there about Nazi symbols. Bring it on, HANS! Sure, call me a “neo-Nazi” or whatever sick bullshit propaganda your bitch Angela Merkel has for me! Sorry, but I don’t subscribe to Angela Merkel’s version of history, any more than I subscribe to Putin’s.  I don’t believe the kind of bullshit that makes the Nazis into Christians, you know, the sick Angela Merkel version of German World War II history and self-hatred that the German people have endured since 1945.

I’m sorry, but much of the German historiography from post 1945 is rather flawed and ideologically-skewed, but that’s “okay” with Wikipedia because it’s better than “negationist false “nationalist” history, right? I hate Wikipedia and how they go through all kinds of ridiculous mental gymnastics concerning Germany’s ridiculous censorship laws, but they’ll keep those “evil Nazis” away, right? I’m sick of Germany and its Nazi hysteria that their German-language and English-language media have engaged in since 1945.  Der Spiegel is in my opinion quite well known for their copious Angela Merkel-style mental gymnastics and so is The Guardian and The Daily Mail, and DM and Guardian are British publications.
I hate to break it to you Angela Merkel, but Adolf Hitler is dead and he is not coming back! Quit making look as though he is coming back to turn Germany into another totalitarian dictatorship, like his!  Herman Goring is also dead and so is Heinrich Himmler. Sure, the SS are gonna march down German streets again in their black uniforms to intimidate folks all throughout Europe. Again, ain’t happening!
The Nazis are so ridiculously outlawed over in Germany, that their reemergence/resurgence is not going to instantly happen overnight!  Of course, Germany is not ever going to have territory stretching out to the Memel River in present-day Lithuania,  like they did in 1945 and 1918.

Yes, there are some people in Germany who want these eastern territories than are now a part of Poland and Russia back, as German territories. Irredentism is a serious problem over in Europe and Wikipedia sure likes to label things like this in a derogatory fashion, like they do in many of their articles, rife with anti-nationalist Marxist post-modernist bullshit!

But Alex Jones is the number 1 conspiracy theorist, right? Alex Jones and his “big, bad globalists” OOH! I’M SOOOOO “SCARED!” Seriously, Alex? Why am I going off into a tangent about him? I am frequently known for going off into various tangents about various subjects. Sure, and Poland and Russia “got” those German territories because the East German commie government over there “ceded” them to Poland and the Soviet Union because of their rather fake “friendships” between “fraternal” communist countries that the pro-Putin crowd love to tout as being “real!” Sure, in Putin’s (false) version of history, the brutal suppression of Czechoslovakia’s revolt against the Soviet Union and the Soviet Bloc was meant to “restore” “normal relations” between the puppets and the puppeteers in Moscow. Yep. Let’s all laugh at Angela Merkel’s version of World War II history, also. But Wikipedia doesn’t attack that and treats it as normal, while presenting a strawman argument that people seriously believe that the Wermacht didn’t commi any atrocities. Sure, there are so deluded souls among the neo-Nazis that believe that malarkey, but the article about the “clean” (German calque translations here) Wermacht is full of Angela Merkel’s post-war “pseudohistory” and for a time there, Wikipedia was all too keen to apply this derisive label to anyone whose history differed from Merkel’s version or Putin’s version. It’s not “pseudohistory” when Angela Merkel believes it, right?
The Wermacht DID commit atrocities, everyone who’s a serious scholar of World War II history knows that.  But there are few articles detailing Allied atrocities and most of those “Allied” atrocities during World War II, were committed, by YOU GUESSED IT, The Soviet Union! Our “wonderful” totalitarian allies run by the despot Iosef Vissarianovich Stalin.  Of course, Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin) idolizes this brutal tyrant and hell, wants to be like him.
Yep, that flawed Soviet historiography that people like Putin believe in, or that flawed German historiography post-war that Angela Merkel believes in and her followers. Yes, I will also address Shinzo Abe and Japan’s false historiography that they have engaged in since 1945.  Of course, it’s a “Marxist plot” that people believe the actual truth about Japanese World War II atrocities and I “just love” the ridiculous mental gymnastics that these Japanese nationalists engage in, post World War II. Wikipedia’s article about “anti-Japanese sentiment in the USA” is chock-full of Abe’s version of history, but Junichiro speaks “better” English than I do, right? An article chock full of Abe’s version of Japanese history, while condemning it on other pages.

The problem is that Japan and the Soviet Union have not mostly engaged in denazification policies or “decommunization” policies since 1945 or in the case of the Soviet Union, (aka Russia, the Russian Federation) since 1991.  Putin is still proud of the Soviet version of history and it is through this distorted lens that we have pro-Russian and pro-Putin sites full of garbage articles about Ukrainian “fascist nationalists” and Banderites,  since 2014.  Of course, Vladimir Vladimirovich was just looking for an excuse to take over Ukraine and his delusional beliefs about an ethnic cleansing allegedly (it never happened, BTW) at the hands of Ukrainian “fascists/nationalists”  Of course, it wouldn’t surprise anyone if the Ukrainian government engages in ethnic cleansing of its Russian minority because, you know, that version of history that Putin believes about the Holodomor being”fake” You know, that genocide in which tens of millions of Ukrainians were starved to death by Stalin.  I love how the Stalinist apologists try to make it about only the Ukrainians when tens of millions of other Soviet citizens starved to death, under both Lenin and Stalin.
Of course, I am NOT excusing Ukraine if they do carry out a genocide against their Russian minority, but Aleksandr Dugin and his Sovietesque geopolitics would reduce the Ukrainians to nothing, to a negligible group of people to be a “minority” You know? The kind of shit that Radovan and Slobodan perpetrated against non-Serbs in the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s because they “thought” the ethnic groups they were targeting would do the same to them and they use the tired excuse of what the Ustase did to the Serbs half a century earlier. So, that’s an excuse for Karadzic and Mladic to do their shit. Sorry, but I do not subscribe to Milorad Dodik’s version of history, Julia Gorin’s or Pamela Geller’s! But of course, Pamela Geller and Julia Gorin are both Jews, but they have no idea that the Serbs that they cheer for, hate them, too.
You know what? After the Serbs were through cleansing the Muslims, they would have started on the Jews next. I’m certain of it. I am 100% (well maybe not exactly 100%) certain that Karadzic and Milosevic would have most likely engaged in anti-Semitic ethnic cleansing of their Jewish minorities. They hated the Jews, like the Muslims did to them. I was a friend of Gorin’s but I changed my mind when I found actual evidence of Serbian atrocities perpetrated by the Serbs that people like Dodik deny to this deny. OF course, the Bosniak and Croat governments ALSO deny their anti-Serbian atrocities, too.

Karadzic, Mladic, and Milosevic hated the Jews, and that came from anti-Semitic false communist and fascist propaganda taught to them in Yugoslav schools.

Yes, Mister Hoare, I agree with you there.  The Serbs aren’t all bad, but according to Attila Hoare’s version of history, (Bill Clinton and Madeline Albright’s, too) the Serbs are “all bad” Plenty of Serbs were rightfully disgusted at what Karadzic and Milosevic and Mladic were doing in their name, and Arkan too.

That’s why many protested them and why there was a strong anti-war movement in Serbia and the former Yugoslavia against all this! They are made fun of in the movie “Lepa Sela, Lepo Gore” but they were real and they didn’t all engage in phony, milquetoast protests like in the movie.

Of course, there are times were Attila Hoare engages in Franjo’s version of
history.

Enough about this. I am tired of ranting about geopolitics. I was going to talk about B-17 The Mighty Eighth and I got off track! I just wanted to write all this stuff to give people “perspective” on why these various events are interconnected, since World War II.  I love how Max Hastings destroys Angela Merkel’s version of history about Germany’s role in World War I in that one documentary he hosted and narrated. Max Hastings is one of the better war historians and he was a journalist covering the Falklands War in 1982 and he has a better perspective, than, unlike, say, Julia Gorin, Pamela Geller, or Angela Merkel or Debbie Schlussel.

There is another problem with B-17 the Mighty Eighth. The other problem is that the bomber’s gunners accuracy is way too accurate to be realistic. The ball turret gunner frequently runs out of ammunition because he is firing so many bullets downrange at a German fighter plane.  Of course, in B-17 the Mighty Eighth, the barrels of the machine guns don’t overheat, which is rather irritating.  They just fire continuously without overheating, like in ARMA, ARMA 2, and ARMA 3 and that series of games, like Operation Flashpoint that Bohemia Interactive had a falling-out with Codemasters over OFP. My only complaint about the FFUR 2007 and other mods is that they do not have machine guns overheating and having to replace a burnt-out barrel after it had fired a lot of shots. The machine guns have unrealistic accuracies and you can hit targets at greater than 600 meters with a .50 Caliber Machine Gun or DSHK or PK.

The light machine gun barrels never overheating and you can fire off ridiculous amounts of ammo from these weapons and never have your barrels overheat and need replacing. Yes, a .50 Caliber M2 (yes, the ole Ma Deuce) can indeed hit targets beyond 600 meters, but this is rare and uncommon. They will most often hit targets at less than 600 meters, like in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Of course, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam were all close-in guerrilla wars that the USA fought with various Islamic/communist insurgent groups. The Vietcong made ISIS look like child’s play.  The Vietcong were deadlier than ISIS. They and the Palestinian terror groups were as reviled as ISIS and Al Qaeda and the Taliban are now, back then, as well as now.
The Vietnam War, War on Terror, and Iraq Wars were mostly fought against insurgents, like the Moro conflict with the Islamist Moro rebels in the Philippines. The Moros were brutal, like ISIS. I love how those Filipinos tout Aquino’s version of history about how the Moros aren’t Islamic/bad and were “fighting” for Filipino independence from the USA.
But I support the “American imperialist” (read imperiarist) version of history, right Kim Jong-un?

Yes, that was a racist jab against their Asian accent, like the movie Team America World Police.  That and King of the Hill show racism against Asian-Americans and have a stereotypical view of Southern white Christian males, that everyone in the East Coast and West Coast, (NOT everyone but many) believe in.

Banning symbols, a la Germany.

https://ethicsalarms.com/2016/07/31/bye-bye-snopes-youre-dead-to-me-now/amp/

Now, I’m reading articles on Ethics Alarms about gift shops banning Confederate flags and related memorabilia, even if it’s reproduction memorabilia that reenactors often use because the original ones are almost impossible to find because they are over 150 years old!

Should we let our country be like Germany? Sure, let’s be like Germany and ban fascist/Nazi symbols! The problem with banning controversial symbols of totalitarian ideologies that the left does NOT like, is that reenactors REALLY take their craft seriously and use the flags with these symbols to stage their own versions of battles, of course, before cameras were invented. Well, in the 1860s, the “cameras” were big and bulky and not many actual Civil War photos exist.

https://www.battlefields.org/learn/articles/photography-and-civil-war

See! Read this and I quote.

“While photographs of earlier conflicts do exist, (Well, where are the photos of the War of 1812, the Revolutionary War?) the American Civil War is considered the first major conflict to be extensively photographed. Not only did intrepid photographers venture onto the fields of battle, but those very images were then widely displayed and sold in ever larger quantities nationwide.

Photographers such as Mathew Brady, Alexander Gardner, and Timothy O’Sullivan found enthusiastic audiences for their images as America’s interests were piqued by the shockingly realistic medium. For the first time in history, citizens on the home front could view the actual carnage of far away battlefields. Civil War photographs stripped away much of the Victorian-era romance around warfare.

Photography during the Civil War, especially for those who ventured out to the battlefields with their cameras, was a difficult and time consuming process. Photographers had to carry all of their heavy equipment, including their darkroom, by wagon. They also had to be prepared to process cumbersome light-sensitive images in cramped wagons. ”

See! Those cameras were nothing like the Canon Powershot cameras that we have nowadays.  You just couldn’t point and shoot the camera. It took a lot to just position it correctly. How did they correct for lighting so that the picture wasn’t too overexposed?

Of course, pictures did not always turn out because of the technology used in their own darkrooms.

“For the first time in history, citizens on the home front could view the actual carnage of far away battlefields. Civil War photographs stripped away much of the Victorian-era romance around warfare.”

Sure, and we can just go on the internet and find an uncensored video of ISIS terrorists beheading a prisoner!   We still have a “romance” about the “tolerant and peaceful” Islam and we’re told to conveniently ignore the atrocities by these little clowns.  They think that turning our country into Saudi Arabia would fix everything, even though that flies in the face of their romanticized feminist beliefs! Oh joy!  Well, you won’t see the New York Times or the Washington Post publishing graphic photos from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Maybe we’ll “strip away” the romanticized and wrong view many people have of Islam.  There are women over there protesting to want better treatment by their fellow man to improve things and yep, they’re labeled “Zionists” “Jews” “CIA agents” and “Mossad agents” and every related anti-American and anti-Semitic slur that you can ever imagine. Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller destroyed a lot of our misplaced left-wing romanticized views of Islam and Islamic terrorism.   Sure, Mohammed! Your morals from the 7th Century are better than my ideology from 1791, that actually makes me free! I’d rather follow the Bill of Rights from 1791, than the 7th Century ramblings of a psychotic and delusional warlord!

Everyone has an opinion about religion.  At least in the USA, you can freely choose to be an atheist, but if you said that Allah does not exist in Iran or Saudi Arabia and you were a woman, then you would be arrested, beaten, tortured, and maybe even killed. No, those claims are “Islamophobic” and “made up” by conservatives. Look, if the left can ban Confederate symbols, then let’s ban the sale of Al Qaeda and Islamist memorabilia and symbols! Of course, they won’t allow that! I don’t want America to be like Germany where we ban parties and ideologies because they do not agree with the ruling elites. The people in Germany are sick of Merkel! Sure, there’s no “cultural conflict” let’s just sweep that under the rug. Nope, nothing to see here folks! Let’s just hold hands with these pigs and sing with them in Arabic, as they sing nasheeds about killing your enemies. Of course, the Muslims cite the Koran as evidence for not allowing music with instruments, the hardcore ones, anyway. Sure, and those Bosnian Muslim propaganda recordings on YouTube fly in the face of that.  I think that there was one commentator that commented on that. The Bosnians were genuinely being killed and persecuted and why hasn’t anyone made a pro-Serb fake (Servpro) ad saying “Serbpro, like it never happened?” And there in the background are a slew of dead bodies from their odious concentration camps! I suppose ISIS aren’t the only ones to have committed genocide, but their genocide of non-Muslims and persecution and terror of those that they do not agree with are rather odious in my opinion. I think that Wikipedia should call out the genocide deniers who deny left-wing commie genocides and they do at that.  Sure, I don’t know what the hell “Marxism” is! Okay, smart-ass! What the fuck is Marxism? Sure, ole Karly sure knew what he was doing! I laugh at Karl Marx and his bullshit ideology and the left-wing boot-lickers who make mental gymnastics, trying to tell me what Marxism REALLY is! And Stalin did not murder, 30 million, right?  Sure, far-left, Stalin was a nice man! Damn! I wish you could add emoticons to these articles! Je parle français!  The Soviet Union was a “worker’s paradise” and Aleksandr Grigorevich has people arrested for not working.  The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it? Of course, Aleksandr Grigorevich and Vladimir Vladimirovich were connected to the party. They could do no wrong. Sergey Kotov tells me that he hasn’t seen his friends being rounded up and arrested! Sure, and those people who are taken out forcibly in the middle of the night and tortured by Putin’s secret police don’t exist, right? WRONG! Sure, Eastern Europe is “violent and backward” and Western Europe is “forward-thinking and progressive!”  Of course, the folks in Eastern Europe are fighting repackaged communism in the form of the EU and telling the EU to go to Hell! They know what they’re dealing with. Those nations spent 45 years being ruled by two hideous totalitarian ideologies and you’re gonna tell them, they have to accept refugees or else? Poland does accept refugees and they come from Ukraine.  But, it’s “America’s fault” right? America “started” that war in Ukraine, right? Sure, the Ukrainian “fascists” decided that they did not want their country to reduced to a Russian satellite vassal state and they said so openly! What’s so “fascist” about wanting to be free?  It’s mental gymnastics about how “oppressed” the Palestinians are. The damned Palestinians think that blowing yourself up in a crowded city and killing thousands fixes everything!  Sure! Sure! They were hijacking airliners in the 1970s and 80s and threatening to kill the pilot if he did not land the plane in some God-forsaken Islamic-run shithole country or “Christian” Uganda!  Idi Amin was a brutal tyrant, like Slobodan Milosevic or Saddam Hussein.  He was a product of white colonialism! Those “folks” don’t know how to run a country and why waste billions in humanitarian aid? They’re still poor, but at least Akon and his Lighting Africa Project is making headway, but it isn’t much.  If only Africa had access to potable water for over 50% of the people and the water wasn’t filled with parasites! Africa has Ebola and other horrible diseases that we in the West cannot imagine.  There was the Ebola hype of a few years ago.  Of course, we have ways to treat Ebola over here in America. Why they have more of it in Africa? I would do anything to learn Afrikaans or Swahili or how to speak French fluently! I don’t know the exact numbers of Africans that immigrated to the USA from these “shithole” countries. I was calling them “shitholes” before Trump said that they were. I don’t need Donald John Trump to tell ME that Nicaragua is a shithole! So is Ecuador, and most of Africa! I do not hate the blacks! I don’t care what country he was referring to! Those “countries” are shit for a reason. Of course, the far-left and far-right would LOVE to turn this country into a stratified classist dictatorship,  of haves and have nots, like in North Korea, China, or Russia.  Yes, everyone. There are “class differences” in North Korea, China, and Vietnam!  You are middle of the road and you get by, or you have nothing and have to live in cramped and appalling conditions.  People in Russia still live with their parents! I wish that I could do that, but no, these bastards took me away from mine! I wanted to be “independent” and they won’t let me move back to my parents!  Let Jordan B. Peterson be an insight into totalitarian ideologies! I hate the state of Pennsylvania! I hate being away from my parents for 5 years and being told that my parents can’t take care of me anymore! Goddamnit! I want to kill myself because I cannot take care of myself!

How come it’s “okay” for Muslims to hate me? How come we can’t document the torture, violence, mass-murder and other violence from the Islamic terrorists? How come the world did something about Serbs who did the same things to Muslims? The Serbs were a perfect example of how NOT to fight Muslims and Islamic terrorism. The Muslims used the same tactics and we’re told that’s “Serbian propaganda” by those little clowns and their apologist boot-lickers. Sure! What if we had wars where NO ONE committed atrocities and everyone was an angel? Ain’t gonna happen!  Sure, call me a “racist” but those damned ragheads and their left-wing bootlicking apologists, sure like to blame poverty for all their problems.  Sure, being poor is an excuse to blow up thousands!

Sure, Pamela Geller and Julia Gorin support the Serbs, unquestioningly and so does Michael Parenti.  Many Serbs hate people like Pamela Geller and Julia Gorin. My theory is that when ole Rasha K had finished off the Muslims, the Jews would have been next.  Karadzic came from a culture where mass murder was acceptable and where murdering tens of thousands was a drop in the bucket. Yep, just like Tito! The very Tito that Marko Attila Hoare and Sabrina Rahmet worship for “liberating” Yugoslavia.  Mihailovic was no saint and neither was Tito. I think that Tito knew how to run a country and Mihailovic did not, or so the “official” story goes. Sure, Tito massacred thousands of people! Hey Gorin! Hey Geller! Does 250,000 dead on all sides mean anything to you? A quarter of a million dead! That’s just about the population of Erie. 8,300 massacred in cold blood at Srebrenica. That’s the entire population of Corry, Pennsylvania, right there and just about half of Meadville’s.

I’m a “pseudo-historian” Sure and I’m a “fraud!” Sure, Gorin and Geller can both lie about those Serbs that Clinton bombed.  You’re never gonna change their minds! You’re gonna change the minds of those Serbs who bullshit the entire internet and try to make it seem like all Serbs support them. They do not and never have.  I don’t care about being “alienated” Why doesn’t Wikipedia cover the usual left-wing conspiracy theories about Bosnia, that Clinton bombed the Serbs to destroy a socialist state in Europe?  What about any of the other wacky far-left apologist bullshit?  Marko Attila Hoare destroys these clowns, too.  I don’t think that the Yugoslav Wars were as “avoidable” as that bullshit documentary would have you believe.  They were unavoidable. The Croats did not want to be ruled by Belgrade anymore, they wanted their own country! Those Serbs that lived there mostly wanted to stay with Yugoslavia.  Milosevic was catching flak to deploying the Yugoslav Army to these countries to “restore” order and kill those “big, bad Ustashas!” Rightly so! They wanted to be free from Belgrade! Of course, no amount of mental gymnastics by Jared Israel, Julia Gorin, and Pamela Geller is gonna change that! It’s sad that these Jews support a virulently anti-Semitic culture like them.  Hate is hate! But those wars could have been “avoided” if they kept on kissing Belgrade’s ass, right?

Boy, the stupidity of the pro-Serb side speaks volumes! Yes, Marko. I don’t agree with your assessment of Tito’s partisans being the “liberators” of Yugoslavia. They were the enslavers of Yugoslavia. They enslaved whole peoples for 45 years!  Not just them! The whole of Eastern Europe, except Greece! Greece was only Western because they needed them and because they were the cradle of civilization and they had a strategic position in the Balkans. Well, what if Draza Mihailovic and his lieutenants had not collaborated with the Germans?  Their supporters to this day apologize for their collaboration. It was a “tactical” collaboration.  The Chetniks were military men, the Partisans had a rag-tag army. The Chetniks were Yugoslav Army special forces units, comparable to our Green Berets and Navy SEALS.  They knew and respected military discipline, but their whole approach to warfare was wrong.  They “selectively” collaborated with the Germans and Italians! That was REAL smooth! The Italians were part of the Axis at the time and the Chetniks got weapons from them because the numerically-superior Partisans would have annihilated them.  I’m sure that if ole Dragoljub did not collaborate with the Germans, he would have tried to fulfill his “dream” of an ethnically-pure Serbia! Sure, and the Ustasha was going about with their own designs of ethnic purity and slitting the throats of thousands of Serbs to do it!

Well, the movie Force 10 from Navarone says that the Chetniks “hunted Allied commandos like wild pigs!” Well, the Chetniks sure as hell pulled off Operation Halyard, with the help of those same “Allied commandos!” The Chetniks had infiltrators in their ranks in the movie. Why didn’t the two spies dressed in Chetnik uniforms shout out and say in Serbian or English, “Hey!” “We’re partisans!” Too bad that movie did not show the odious nature of the Yugoslav turf war known as World War II.  It was a mafia turf war between two rival gangs! That’s what the Chetnik and Partisan relationship was like! There were instances of the Taliban and some Afghans collaborating with the Americans to eliminate their rivals, whom they falsely labeled as “Zionists” or whatever parlance that they used in Afghanistan to eliminate their “hated” neighbors. The Chetniks were beloved by the Serbs like the Rasha Drachkovitch agenda-driven documentary points out.  Tito was more popular than Mihailovic, in many ways. I suppose that history will judge how brutal Tito TRULY was.  I think that Yugoslavia brought out the very worst in human nature from 1945-1995. 50 years of sheer brutality, followed in 1998 by Milosevic, trying to repeat the same stuff in Kosovo to the Albanians.  They let them rule them! The movie Force 10 from Navarone did not show how the Partisans would play victim with the Germans and use them to wipe out those that they perceived to be “Chetniks” or “Ustasha”

I suppose that Operation Halyard was just a PR move by Mihailovic and his Chetniks.  He had some support left from the Americans, but not much.  I think that both the Chetniks and Partisans were in the wrong.  The Partisans were following a totalitarian ideology, like the Germans were following. Of course, these partisan Titoists play “mental gymnastics” with how they’re “different” from Hitler and the Axis! The Allies accepted Tito because he knew how to get stuff done. Tito could reign in his loose cannon underlings and Mihailovic could not.  I think that Tito was a brutal, thuggish dictator and the commies ruled Yugoslavia for 50 years. Milosevic was just continuing in Tito’s footsteps. Tito ethnically-cleansed the Italians in Dalmatia and the Germans throughout Yugoslavia and it was “okay” for him to hate the Germans and brand them all as “Nazis” even though most of them followed Hitler because they would have been killed if they did not.  How many of the Chetniks or Partisans were forced to fight for one or the other? I’ll bet you money that many in their ranks did not “voluntarily” serve either one. Some were forced to fight for the Chetniks or Partisans.  This was Yugoslavia’s First Civil War, followed by the more brutal and more well-known one, 50 years later!

Tito and Hitler were totalitarian scum of the earth! Praising Tito is like praising a rattlesnake for killing mice and keeping the population down!  Tito was a snake! Tito was a deceiver and Mihailovic was the same way.  Mihailovic and Tito could get people to follow them, and so could Ante Pavelic.  Lou Diamond Phillips in the Officer and a Movie show on the Military Channel pointed out the “ethnic hatreds” of Yugoslavia. You did not see any of that in Force 10, but you did see how the commies duped cons like Sabrina Rahmet and Marko Attila Hoare and how they still continue to dupe them.

Tito was a brutal dictator, like Adolf Hitler! They’re similar in their approach. Tito called his ideology “National communism” and Hitler called his “National Socialism!” What does THAT tell you?  Tito and Hitler ruled their citizens at gunpoint.  I don’t care about the “mental gymnastics” from the delusional Titoist fan-boys and girls!

They praise Tito for “liberating” women. Yeah! Sure! Those same women worked for pennies in their state-owned rat-trap factories for pennies! Those “liberated” women! They were paid far less than what workers in America were paid. If you compare the Yugoslavian Dinar to the US Dollar, you will see a vast difference. Same with the ruble.  But Jasmina, the “education” was “better” right? Oh Malagurski and his BS documentary called “The Weight of Chains 2!” Having your head filled with commie bullshit is an “education!” The commies gave you their “education” for “free!” How many people did not go to school in Yugoslavia? How many were illiterate? Many! They figured out how to dodge the system, but not for long.  Sure, being skilled in commie bullshit is an “education!” The bullshit interpretation of history favored by scum like Marko Attila Hoare and Sabrina Petra Ramet is parroted throughout the whole internet on Wikipedia! Of course, people still deny the Bosnian Genocide! You’re gonna waste a whole article to it? Seriously? Alice Cooper on his Radio Show rhetorically wanted people to come with Polish solidarity jokes. Here’s one. “The eagle is not greater than the crow!” I have no idea what the original Polish phrase was. Why not just debunk the leftist bullshit conspiracy theories that Clinton helped the Muslims to fight the Serbs, just to be “nice” to his Middle-Eastern clients? The Bosnians received help from the Arab world, but it wasn’t much. Alija knew that he could not win with them alone! What about any of the other ridiculous conspiracy theories that the pro-Serb side employs? Address them, Wikipedia!

The Bosnian people were suffering, except that the Muslims were getting the very worst of Karadzic and his odiousness.  I think that Alija was an Islamist and he tried to play the “moderate” scheme, like Tito and Karadzic and Plavsic did.  He was just continuing Tito’s way of doing things, except that he was an alienated fanboy, like those pinheads who stalk Britney or whatever. It was worse than that. The Bosnians were no fans of Yugoslavia and the Serbs throughout Yugoslavia were not fans, either.  I don’t think that Karadzic and Izetbegovic could have shared the same room, for very long, like they did in 1990.  The giant clusterfuck known as the Yugoslav Wars could not have been prevented. Sure, and Belgrade’s ass-kissers who made the documentary “Yugoslavia: The “Avoidable” War” need to realize that!  They pay lip service by criticizing Milosevic and his propaganda, while parroting it in other parts of the documentary.  It was inevitable that they were going to kill each other and did! A quarter of a million dead later? What did that solve? NOTHING! They still hate each other, except now they’re spitting venom at one another on various social media websites on the internet in garbled English and very fluent Serbian and Bosnian and Croatian.

It’s clear that many of these people have a poor command of the English language and they are made fun of it, too. By the people on reddit and 4chan. The whole “remove kebab” shitposting stuff is meant to  be funny, like moon man.  Moon man was making fun of the remove kebab mentality that many in Europe believe in, not only many Serbs, but many in Western Europe, too. And some of them are Serbs. Sure, ethnic cleansing “fixes” everything, right, Voja? Sure Baja Mali Knindza! Seselj was a “Serbian savior!” Sure! The movie showed how brutal they were.  The Yugoslav Wars were an example of a European clusterfuck war, like the kind found in Northern Ireland with the IRA and the British. Those wars were fought over nationalism and religion, like Northern Ireland. People in the 90s were concerned about these conflicts. How many Irish do you know of were forced to fight for the IRA and did not want to? Many Irish Catholics and Protestants were forced to fight for the IRA and forced against their will, otherwise they would have killed them if they didn’t. Same thing happened in Yugoslavia.

BMK and his fawning praise of Seselj and the Serbian Radical Party. The Radical Party is the Chetnik party.  Might as well just say it! The sad thing is that all of those people have designs on each other. What territories one country should look like, compared to another.  Minorities not in the same countries as their compatriots. The people of Northern Ireland wanted to be a part of the United Kingdom, but how many of them were forced to believe that?  The British forced them to stay with the UK and the Irish would have forced them out. The Protestants in Northern Ireland feared that they would be “ethnically-cleansed” like in Bosnia! This is why European politics is a giant clusterfuck. Of course, you have people in America who want the southwest to be a part of Mexico again.  Sure! And Mexico’s leaders will “make Mexico great again!” Not all Mexicans believe that the Southwest should be theirs again. Would you want the United Kingdom to get the 13 colonies back? Of course, that hilariously bad movie “Wild Wild West” showed a madman who wanted to redraw the map of America and they actually tried to do in that in the 19th Century.  Many British were still bitter over the loss of the 13 colonies, but they went on with it, anyway. They traded with the United States because it had stuff that they needed and stuff that we wanted, from India and various other colonies and from Canada, to the north.

People forget that the British Empire was just across Lake Erie. The British Commonwealth is still across Lake Erie and the other Great Lakes. I live close to Lake Erie and I see Canadians driving all over the area to shop in Grove City and Erie and in Pittsburgh.

The Sordid Balkan Connection to the conflict with Daria Larsen. Why I became a Chetnik.

“What is supposed to be the happiest of days becomes the bloodiest of days as gunfire erupts outside the church.”

I saw the movies Sniper 2 and Behind Enemy Lines and in the past, I had wanted anti-Russian ethnic cleansing.  I also saw the movie “Savior” and the scene where one of the characters, goes into a mosque and shoots worshippers, believing that the mosque had abetted and incited the terrorist attack upon the American embassy in Paris, France.  This was the bombing in the movie of the American embassy in France.
My warped thinking. I am warped beyond all repair.  This was in the past where I had plotted anti-Russian ethnic cleansing operations.
I never saw the movie “Say it in Russian”, but I did see the movie “Lepa Sela, Lepo Gore” and it has influenced my worldview greatly.
But Rozhin has more than freedom on his mind. He wants revenge for the years he spent locked up and for the betrayal (Daria betrayed me, but none of that even matters to you!) by his one-time friend.  Gary Hunt could have locked me up, but he did not.
 “Beckett is given a mission to assassinate renegade Serbian General Mile Valstoria (Peter Linka), who is responsible for conducting hit-and-run ethnic cleansing operations in Muslim-populated areas”
Jacqueline, a Paris society hostess (Faye Dunaway) introduces a fellow American, businessman Andrew Lamont (Steven Brand) to a beautiful young Russian girl, Daria Larina (Agata Gotova), while he is on vacation in Europe. She is the kind of woman who will turn the eye of every man when she walks into a room. Andrew is fascinated by her, as Jacqueline knew he would be. He woos Daria with flowers and dinners. Eventually he wins her over and together they go to Moscow, where he meets Daria’s father Raf (Rade Serbedzija), a former mafia oligarch, but now Russia’s Minister of Internal Affairs. Raf lives in a magnificent mansion with his “Russian doll” blonde girlfriend (Musetta Vander), whom he is about to marry. He had kept news of the wedding from his daughter and is furious that she has found out about it and shown up with this American. He wants her to go back to Paris immediately. Daria is terribly hurt, believing that her father has no love for her. She doesn’t know, and he won’t tell her, that because he loves her so much he wants her as far away as possible.
If she stays she will be in mortal danger and he is unable to protect her. Raf’s past life has come back to haunt him. He is under pressure from a gang of dangerous hoodlums to secure the release from prison of their boss, and Raf’s one time friend and colleague, Oleg Rozhin (Steven Berkoff). Raf’s worst fears are realized when Daria is kidnapped and taken to a remote hut in the forest. He goes to the prison with a signed document authorizing the release of his nemesis. The prison governor looks at him suspiciously, but Raf is his superior and the sinister Rozhin gets his freedom. Andrew traces Daria’s kidnappers. He is outnumbered, but lures most of them away from the hut. He overpowers the remaining guard and escapes with Daria, riding a horse-drawn sled through the snow-covered forest, the heavily armed gangsters in hot pursuit. With Rozhin out of jail, the wedding proceeds. But Rozhin has more than freedom on his mind. He wants revenge for the years he spent locked up and for the betrayal by his one-time friend. What is supposed to be the happiest of days becomes the bloodiest of days as gunfire erupts outside the church.
Threatening to go out and shooting people is an act of cowardice! I am a coward, so who gives a fuck?
It’s just the nature of Eastern European ethnic hatreds over the course of many centuries.  One ethnic group cleanses the other and so on, except that the Poles, were ethnically-cleansed on many occasions by the Russians. The Russian leadership has used the conflict with Ukraine as an excuse to intervene there to protect Russians from this manufactured “ethnic cleansing” by the Ukrainian government.

President Boris Yeltsin accused the Estonian government of practising ‘ethnic cleansing’ and ‘apartheid’ against its Russian minority.  Of course, the Soviet Union practiced ethnic cleansing in the Baltics in the past.

They also practiced ethnic cleansing in Poland, as well.

Karstene, Karstene, Vaša žena je najgora drolja na svetu!  Oj Karstene! Oj Karstene!  Karsten je Darijin muž.

American businessman Andrew Lamont. Andrew Lamont is the guy in the movie, whom Daria falls in love with. Andrew Lamont is played in the Say it in Russian film by Steven Brand and Agata Gotova plays Daria (Larina).
 
 

Ova Bugarska svinja je u kući!  The fact that he is from the Balkans, from Bulgaria, has also influenced me.
Karsten je Danska svinja! Živela Velika Srbija!

Filmed in Paris, Moscow and Los Angeles, with award winning exceptional cinematography and a fully orchestrated original score by Russian Superstar Igor Nikolaev, “Say it in Russian” stars Russian actress Agata Gotova, in the lead role of the film as Daria Larina, the daughter of a rich Russian mafia oligarch played by Serbian actor Rade Serbedzija (Snatch, Shooter). 

It is precisely because of this connection with Serbia, through Rade Šerbedžija, that I allied with the Serbs to fight back against Daria and her Turkophilic flings with that Azmi Mavi guy. I supported Radovan Karadžić and Ratko Mladić!
Gotova’s character falls in love with the American Andrew Lamont, played by actor Steven Brand (The Scorpion King,) but Andrew soon finds on a visit to Moscow that he is involved with a family that is more complicated and dangerous than he ever imagined.

This is a picture of Agata Gotova, the actress who plays Daria Larina. 
 
I don’t think that my life is a movie at all. That whole stupid fling with Daria Perekidaylova was the worst experience of my life!
 
 
Why didn’t anyone tell the FBI about any of this stuff? It’s too bad that no one forwarded it to the FBI agents!
 
I am a bloody criminal!

Here is Rade, with Agata Gotova, promoting the “Say it in Russian” movie.
 
It is because of an appealing article on a blog somewhere that I decided to become a Chetnik and fight the Croats, Bosnian Muslims, and the Turks.
Chetnik, (Serbo-Croatian Četnik), member of a Serbian nationalist guerrilla force that formed during World War II to resist the Axis invaders and Croatian collaborators but that primarily fought a civil war against the Yugoslav communist guerrillas, the Partisans.

After the surrender of the Yugoslav royal army in April 1941, Serb soldiers throughout Yugoslavia set up čete, or “bands,” named after armed irregulars who had harassed the Turks in the 19th century.

Želio da sam budio četnik! Antimuslimanski genocid u Bosni bio je najstrašniji zločin u Evropi posle Drugog Svetskog Rata.
In my warped mind, I viewed myself a Serbian Chetnik, even though I was Polish, like that Boris Malagurski fellow. Malagurski fawns praise upon the partisans. I am going to collaborate with you, Touch-Stone Solutions and others who are my enemies, to fight Daria.
“Meets her when working in the veterinarian dispensary. After Ira dies, he moves to Daria’s place; he takes care of the stables. He sleeps with Daria only when she wants to; they do it in the forest as well. They go to Moscow for holidays to her parents’ villa in Voronjska street, where he meets Olja Kutina, who studies economy. Darja is pregnant and always follows him; she wants to marry and Tito says yes, but he also says he does not have appropriate papers from Croatia. Olja is visiting him often at his house, so Darja and Tito have a heavy quarrel, and so he leaves her, thinking Olja would accept him. But she doesn’t as she is afraid of her father. Darja wants him back, he says she should give him half of her estate, so she decides to leave him forever. He denies being the father of her son. He goes to the city to search for Olja… Son Josip Andirelov, born in 1916, Russia, dies as Red Army Aviation Officer in Berlin in 1944.”

It was because of the connection that Josip Broz Tito had with Daria Andirelova is one of the reasons that I want to go and fight Tito and his commie Partisans! Mihailović and his Chetniks were the primary opposition to Tito’s Yugoslav Partisan guerrillas and they both fought a turf war for control of Yugoslavia during World War II.

“Са вером у Бога, Слобода или Смрт!”  Девиз Четников Сербских.  “Свобода или Смерть! Со верой в Бога!”
 
I have thought about collaboration with Touch-Stone Solutions to fight Daria.
This is where all the sordid connections with the Balkans and the Russians come in, including Lee Waterhouse, who was born in Bulgaria, but now lives here in the USA. He does not even care about Daria from a long time ago.

This is why I did that utterly stupid act of mine of threatening to hurt Russians.  I am a dead man, now!

Darija me porazila!
