That's not quite right. The USA utterly clobbered, say, the Choctaw, but we don't look back on the Trail of Tears as a good thing.

That example is right in a strict sense...but I was more referring to war time thinking in general. I am not quite familiar with all events relating to native america in the USA (I live in Canada, the story is different here). However, I am pretty sure that the magnitude of military deployment wasn't quite equal on both sides.

But, I see your point and I can't argue against it!

I think this has gone too far into another topic. Can a moderator please move this into a new thread?

Guys, if you want to continue to debate the morality of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, please start a new thread. The discussion has been respectful and intelligent, but it's eating up multiple pages of our video appreciation thread. Thank you.

I would support a split already (and if you do split, feel free to delete this meta post)

The Ur-Quan version of children classic.



I think guys at Stardock need to contact Kevin for the soundtrack of new SC game.

Wow!

I didn't think that song could have such sinister tones! :twisted:

That video reminded me of this late night comedy skit.

It helps if you know the band Megadeth a bit.

It's a shame they have gone with a raccoon character, rather than red panda...
