"Why did Italians fare so bad..." or "Why are we Brits so good"

I replied to one of those forums...and it was a mistake. I just threw some more gasoline to the fire...HMMM

STOP THAT NATIONALISTIC BS! What is in it for U? Hey, this is a game-forum for IL2 and IL2 Forgotten Battles. If U R so interested in mumbling about national pride and "how we R sooooo good" pls find another forum for it.

Nationalistic behavior makes people untolerable and made it possible e.g. that today we play IL2 FB on our computers. Get civilised and start throwing those uneducated opinions to this forum.

S!

It's not nationalistic BS, the spaghettfressers really didn't do very well in ww2.

Those who wish to inult others using inflamatory, profane language to make ad hominem attacks based upon religion, nationality, sexual preference, body odor or on innummerable other grounds may do so on the unofficial pilot's lounge forum.

The questions are only part of the scenario. It's also how people answer the questions; it didn't have to go down the road of slating each other. Sadly, that seems to be the feeling in these forums regardless of the thread topic.

Not all the time, in the 17th Century, the United Provinces had the best admirals: the Tromps, de Ruyter, Evertsen.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hey history is history.

In the North African campaign the Eyeties gave up in droves to the Brit Troops. In fact there are some pics in the books showing one Tommie with an Enfield taking hundreds of Italian soldiers to the prisoner of war camp. Amazing! They did really well with there little tankettes again the Abysinian tribes.



Happy hunting and check six!

The best rejection of the notiion of National/racial superiority that I have read is a book called "Guns, Germs, and Steel" by Jared Diamond. The basic premise is that the 'success' of a nation/race is dependant soley on the conditions/environment they find themselves in. For example, it is much easier to have a farm in Europe than in the Sahara. The book obviously goes into much more detail.

The Nationalistic slandering is mild here. You want to see nation bashing on a regular level check out the German forums with a translator. You will see many people who you see acting nice and cool in this forum bashing other nations on a regular basis. They act much different when they are among there own kind.

Good men died for their beleifs, no matter if they were wrong, which only history/time can prove. In my opinion every man who fights and even gives his life for a cause, no matter his nationality or (in recent years) religion is a man to honour.

As long as the fight does not include innocent civilians.

The definition of cause is up to the individual.

Never deprive the honour from the men who gave their lives to ensure our tomorrow, whoever they are.
