  1. This is a reason why homosexuality is a sin.
  2. I admit my last time playing a "World of Warships" was the Avalon Hill game "Victory in the Pacific "
  3. Hhmm, I would say that as long as Japan had a navy and tankers -- and the rest of Japan's merchant marine -- the U.S. Navy would regard it as their responsibility to see that they were sunk as soon as possible and that the definitive answer to the availability of such ships would be Japan signing their surrender. I would like to read what Ken E. and Rich have to say about the first sentence. Regarding the second part of your reply, did the U.S. government print language guides for other Asian countries in 1944?
  4. The Iowas had the advantage over the Montana class of speed. The Iowas were the only battleships that had the speed necessary to keep up with aircraft carriers in a carrier task force. The construction of the last two Iowas; Illinois BB65 and the Kentucky BB66, was held up due to the Navy's shift in war time priorities to carriers and at one time were considered for conversion to such vessels. As far as I can tell, there was no evidence that the U.S. Navy believed the Japanese Navy was out of, or would be soon, of ships and oil by the end of 1944.

  9. The link below is truly evil! That such wretched choices are celebrated is a large reason why Western cultural is the antithesis of morality for much of the Islamic world. The basis of the family, the cornerstone of a successful society, is a man an and woman becoming husband and wife, then a mother and father. The Western evil below is one reason why the West spent 20 years in Afghanistan. https://www.aol.com/news/pete-buttigieg-husband-chasten-welcome-154439324.html
  10. For the U.S. this involved changes in leadership and legislative bodies throughout these 20 years, yet from the opposing view, imo, not much appeared to change. The West, basically the U.S., was/is in an Islamic country and no Islamic country was in the West. Do not irk the U.S. with surprise attacks or horrible things occur to you. The U.S. and Europe, it appears, could benefit from more and better human intelligence in the Islamic world. I admit I have no idea how do this. I do wonder on how impressed the Islamic world was, and is, impressed by Western firepower and logistics along with political staying power. I cannot think of a Mid-East/ Islamic country that is immune from this amount and duration of applied force and I wonder if this Western world ability is in the mind of said leaders in these countries. I do not believe you can have a successful government with a prior culture of compromise and morality. Afghanistan will, imo, never have this. With people you have problems and when you have groups of people you have groups of often large problems. The best form of government is Christianity leading Capitalism with a representative form of government. The West has this and is now living off the traditions such success brought. Islamic countries have not had the benefits of this and suffer accordingly.
  11. Thomas Sowell should be required study in every high school and university.
  12. Or the old-fashioned method that works every time by having a man and a woman become husband and wife than a mother and father.
  13. https://www.thestarpress.com/story/opinion/contributors/2021/09/04/saber-bahrami-why-afghanistan-government-collapsed/5708413001/ From a local physician.
  14. Are there any reports available on what captured vehicles were thought of compared to the said countries own vehicles? For instance, German thoughts on the Sherman, etc?
  15. Are there severe storms similar to hurricanes off the coast of The Netherlands?

  17. Those rifles look like they were machined from one solid chunk of steel.
  18. A few rays of hope in the People's Republic of Kalifornia (PRK) https://www.foxnews.com/us/california-teacher-pledge-allegiance-pride-flag-removed-from-classroom https://www.foxnews.com/us/pro-antifa-california-teacher-to-be-fired Doing the job of journalism, not propaganda https://www.projectveritas.com/
  19. So it looks like Napoleon in 1798 was the last one to invade Switzerland? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switzerland_in_the_Napoleonic
  20. Not being knowledgeable about the area, are there railroads and or roads that allow easy and quick access from point A -- through Switzerland -- to point B? Seems like it would be tough going through, I presume, a mostly mountain country?
  21. Leggings at 1:14? Not knowledgeable on jets, were those British Vampires -- the twin tail jets? What were the newer looking jets?
