All of them. ✌
They all have their points
Yes. Selling weapons and paving the way for American imperialism, amazing…
>>978>puts china on both sides>doesn't put the usa on both sides
What did they mean by this?
how modern are we talking? what does "pointless" entail, a bunk causus belli, or simply unnecessary loss of life? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Zanzibar_War >The war, lasting less than three-quarters of an hour, is considered the shortest in recorded history. Several durations are given by sources, including 38, 40 and 45 minutes, but the 38-minute duration is the most often quoted.
A war where both sides failed to accomplish anything, leading to a waste of money, ammunition and human life
Recent history as in from the Cold War and onwards
No necessarily wars, but the battles of the Isonzo river lmao>>999>>1000
Is the man on the right wearing Chucks?
Lot of people in the Iran-Iraq war were irregulars who didn't always have full uniform.
Yep, there it is, the 8 year bloody war that pretty much defined my country and solidified the new governments rule, and by extension Khomeini's
Though currently looking at wikipedia now, it doesn't list China as one of the belligerents, which is correct since China never actually engaged in combat
This is actually the first time I even learn China had anything to do with Iran-Iraq war
Kinda ironic how our government is seeking help from people that also helped our enemy
Not true, the Iran-Iraq war was instrumental in solidifying the Iranian government's power and influence for decades to come
The Iran-Iraq war gained religious significance because of the concept of marty-ism in Shia Islam, So it became a religious war from the get go.
Even the names reflect it, "دفاع مقدس" ( religious defense ) .
Also I kinda fucked up the translation there, its better to translate it as "The Holy Defense"
Bit of a late response but I'm curious, are you religious? Do you think Shia Islam and socialism can be compatible? Are you using a VPN or does the government allow acces to this site? If you don't want to respond don't worry.
chechen wars. I get tactical locations but why 2 fucking wars for less than 1/300 of your land?
This except the Great Patriotic War, Chinese and Russian Civil Wars and certain National Liberation wars
yeah selling guns to get rich
in the second chechen war, terrorists from chechnya bombed a russian hospital on daestan
This is how the civil war in Yugoslavia started, Croat and Serb soccer hooligans started fighting each other during a match between two domestic teams
>>1056>are you religious?
>Do you think Shia Islam and socialism can be compatible?
I thought the whole point of religion was to assist the capitalist class in keeping their power?
As for your question, you might wanna take a look at Ba'athism ( though the ideology itself is secular )https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ba%27athism#Role_of_Islam
>Are you using a VPN
>does the government allow acces to this site?
The only reason I'm allowed to access this site is because its under the radar of the gov, websites like 4chan are banned though
Sorry for all these questions and this is mostly just my morbid curiosity speaking but aren't you scared of stating you're not religious here if this site is under the radar of the government? Or is it unlikely anything would come of that?
>>1103>this site is under the radar of the government?
Sorry for any misunderstanding, English is not my first language
I mean "it flies under the radar of the goverment" as in "leftypol.org is not a popular or even known site to the government for them to even ban"
Ahh ok, I see now. I had interpreted that as leftypol was known by the government but not seen as something to censor.
Second Libyan Civil War. At least it's over now.
Pretty sure it was because some dude put a Beer bottle up his ass lmao
What the FUCK is that Belligerents list? That has to be one of the strangest I've seen yet.
