    Something doesn't quite add up there. Ya think?

    It doesn't take away from the fact that those events actually happened.
    Not saying it does but VT is a total piece of crap site.

    I already have, but you refuse to learn anything, because you already know it all. A failing common among Liberals.

    Hell, you still believe The Revolutionary War was a guerilla war.

    If nothing refutes the events, then you're wasting our time.

    No you havnet. All you have done is ask questions, and make claims. But as always you just blame everything on "liberals"....

    When it comes to the erroneous information you've posted, its nothing more than Leftist disinformation. I think its motivated by the fact that Libbos see The Viet Cong as the good guys.

    Your own lack of historical evidence proves me correct. Even the one source you presented proves you wrong.

    More claims made and yet a a single source has not been provided for the accusations you have made. When you asked for sources I provided, yet when I ask you to provide sources for the claims you make you provide none.

    According to me:
    - The single most important factor in deciding the outcome of a war is wealth to fund it.

    So, there will be occasions in history were one or the other mattered the most, but overall I still think money makes the final decision.


    My examples were Rome, England, the US. His focused on Indian kings (asia) and the soviet union.

    Tell me your thoughts and examples.


    The most important factor is preparedness.

    You go to war with the military that you have when war breaks out.

    If that military isn't prepared to fight, and win, that war you're going to lose.

    After war breaks out it's too late to start thinking about your military

    You provided a source that proved you wrong. Enough said.
