    The Union Army kicked your “superior soldiers” asses over and over and over again.

    Then a bunch of ragtag Mexican rebels did the same thing when some of your officers fled to try and prop up France’s little project.

    Compared to the Confederates even Italy looks like a martial superpower

    Does this mean the Trump-Russia ties are suddenly nonexistent? Didn't think so. Anyway, anyone bringing up Trump or Clinton is off topic.

    Re: Russia trains for large-scale war

    With NATO encroaching and treaties being nullified by the US, can you really blame them?

    As we prepare to invade Venezuela and build Fort Trump in Poland, can you really blame them?

    They would be foolish if they did not prepare for military aggression against them. That is the stock-in-trade for the US.

    So yea, that puts you up quite a bit over the "hicks". Nobody was killed when the 101st went into Little Rock. Nobody was injured either.

    Oh, also 1,500 National Guard were called in for riots in 1966. 1,000 National Guard for the 1968 DNC convention. And over 2,500 National Guard for the Days of Rage in 1969.
    You forgot the Kent State shooting of 1970 by the Ohio National Guard. 4 students were killed and nine injured (one suffered permanent paralysis).

    Considering a conservative said we needed another Kent State, he may be actively trying to avoid it.

    Ueah, that's not true. Southerners have always been superior soldiers.

    Of the top 5 most decorated U.S. servicemen, 3 are from the South: Audy Murphy, Chesty Puller and James Mason.

    Then there's Doris Miller - Texas. Carl Brashear - Kentucky. Julian Cook - South Carolina. Chester Nimitz - Texas. Maxwell Taylor - Missouri.

    So many Army posts are named for Confederate generals because even after the war, they were recognized as superior commanders vs. any northern generals. I mean, hell! Even Braxton Bragg got a fort...lol.

    Let's continue:

    Robert Sink - North Carolina

    Roscoe Robinson, jr. - Missouri

    Jack Lucas - North Carolina

    Clair Chenault - Louisiana

    Carlos Hathcock - Arkansas

    Chris Kyle - Texas

    John Lucian Smith - Oklahoma

    John Lejeune - Louisiana (Camp Lejeune is named for the son of a Confederate officer)

    I could go on all day, but you now understand that the Southern culture produces superior soldiers.

    On the one hand Russia is pilloried for preparing to defend itself.


    On another thread people salivate over the prospect of the US 'making the first move' against Russia and China. What could possibly go wrong


    Well look - maybe the US should ensure it's negotiated peace terms with the robed cave dwellers in Afghanistan, and the pick up truck machine gun armed Islamists in Iraq, before taking on capable militaries.

    Yes, I’m quite sure you could indeed humiliate yourself all day. That’s all your good at, after all.



    And yet, Confederate officers got their asses kicked up and down the south by the US Army. The fact that the US government decided to appease whiskey tango losers by naming forts after confederate officers——and considering the numerous Confederates had previously serviced in the US Army, it certainly wasn’t an “acknowledgement that Confederate officers were better”—- does not change reality.

    Sherman and Grant sent your fantasy southern ubermensch running home to their mommas with a stream of piss trailing behind them

    Southern culture produced loud mouthed morons apparently.

    But I get it. You don’t have the spine to admit you were whipped.....so you cling to fairy tales.
