  1. NY Times article, 100 years ago. http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=9A06E5D9153AE433A25751C2A9629C946696D6CF
  2. YEAH but the CONSTANT bombing employed by General Lemay in WW 2 could have been stopped but the Japanese government would never give up. Crap the USA had to demonstrate they had the A-bomb and killed 2 of their cities before they finally quit. I am glad the USA used those bombs as they saved US soldiers lives, and war is bloody hell. All sides commit atrocities in every war. Of course that does not make them "right". USA military did the My Lai massacre in Vietnam. And that was only exposed because a reporter from a Cleveland newspaper published his photos. The public would have ever known about it .
  3. Failed Allied April offensives....
  4. Nice news from Bronco land. ! Welcome. Am really looking forward to pushing any older women wearing their orange and blue down the aluminum stairs at Peccole Park here!
  5. I think he had paranoia issues. He always thought people were "dissing him". He was originally from Connecticut and in the Boston area all his old bad buddies from there joined him for nights out. That didn't turn out well for anybody.
  6. I had the Blackhawks and Caps in the finals. Just goes to show that these teams are not very far apart when they get into games where everybody is really trying. (Unlike a lot of the regular season)
  7. I am a Celtics fan. but I seriously can't stand the way they play. Is the young-ish coaching :genius; from Butler Brad Stevens an advocate of the farking dumb shot? Looks like it to me.
  8. copied from the British version-- Lord Kitchener died in 1916. And he was quite Gay.
  9. ok, this weeks 3-part series on PBS about WW 1 and the USA was absolutely farking awesome. YOU CAN STREAM IT AT PBS.ORG. When the United States declared war on Germany, the Marine Corps was scattered all over the world. They were serving in Cuba, the Philippines, Haiti, China, Nicaragua, Santo Domingo and other places. Five Marine regiments existed but seldom did they serve as a regiment. Mostly, they were broken up into separate battalions and companie s. On paper, Marine regiments were organized along the same lines as the Army - three infantry battalions and a machine gun company plus headquarters and support units. Each regiment had three battalions and each battalion had four companies. On 06 April, 1917, the Marine Corps consisted of 419 officers and 13,214 enlisted personnel serving on land. At sea, on board ships, were 49 officers and 2,187 enlisted personnel. In training were 1,193 recruits at the two main training depots - Parris Island, then called Marine Barracks, Port Royal, South Carolina, and Mare Island in San Francisco.
  10. Should be good. For a ROAD TRIP!
