>in their homeland
It wasn't really a war.
The Iraqis barely had a functional army.
Half or more outright surrendered and/or defected to Iran ffs.
The Iraqis were outmanned, outgunned, and outclassed by the US.
also one thing i genuinely dont get is how american soldiers buy into all that "its glorious to defend your homeland" shit yet theyre the first ones to be sent to kill people who do just that lol (and in much more heroic circumstances seeing as they're always massively outgunned by the US army budget)

you dont defend shit. you kill people who do. you just joined because you thought youd look cool in uniform and get to be BADASS and EPIC stoic soldier man just like how hollywood taught you.

Are ghost towns still "owned" by anyone? Does the federal government reclaim them? I'm just curious how that works and I didn't know if I asked here or /pol/.

Italian here. The towns went depopulated due to a dire lack of jobs. They are mostly rural communities. If you find a way to value that place (foreign turism, innovative agricolture, putting a good internet connection and working via internet in a cozy brick and mortar office in the Appennini mountains) can be a good idea. Due to aging population, if you are young nice and respectful, and manage to communicate, Italian nonnas will like you a lot and even give you tons of food. Even more if you start a family and make kids. Nonnas love kids.
I also had a similar idea, unfortunately i'm too much of an autistic neet to do it alone.

That's really impractical. And filling it with "badly polluted" water is a terrible idea on top. Pollutants will just leach through the bedrock and up in the environment. Steam 'explosions' would cause cracks, subsidence, cave-ins, etc. and is pretty unpredictable.

Are you trolling, or really this stupid?

My boy is always right.
>He was also furious at Ermakov for bringing only one shovel for the disposal.[7]
Imagine being Yurovsky and having to deal with this shit.
Family of citizen Nicolai Romanov lost all rights to rule after he abdictated. All his other relatives also refused the "honor" of sitting on the Russian throne when asked. They were executed not because they were a threat. They were executed because they were held by people who were very angry at them and they used the opportunity to murder them. Honestly, if higher-level Bolshevik leadership was anywhere close to Ekaterinburg back then - they would be kept alive most likely.

Pretty sure the decision to kill them was made by Lenin or always harbored a seething hatred for the Romanovs for executing his brother.

Never forget our righteous brothers who were killed in hatred of the faith by inhuman Nazi regime.


>Blessed Alojs Andritzki (2 July 1914 - 3 February 1943) was a German Roman Catholic priest.[1][2] He was ordained as a priest just prior to the beginning of World War II in which he became a vocal critic of the Nazi regime and its actions; this earned him their ire and he was arrested before being sent to the Dachau concentration camp where he was administered a lethal injection

>The Gestapo oversaw his arrest on 21 January 1941 for producing Christmas theatre and was described as having made "hostile statements" against the Nazi regime thus the motivator for his arrest.[1][3] He was interrogated on 7 February 1941 and was first sent to the detention center at Dresden but was moved two months later on 2 October 1941 to the Dachau concentration camp with the prisoner number 27829. Back in July 1941 he was sentenced to six months due to "insidious attacks" against the regime. His father sent a moving letter to Berlin asking for pardon since there were no charges but this appeal was instead ignored.

>He fell ill with typhoid around Christmas of 1942 but did not go to the infirmary until 19 January 1943. Andritzki's final request was to receive the Eucharist but the guards and warden scoffed at this suggestion and decided instead to euthanize him; the warden jeered and said: "He wants Christ. We'll give him an injection instead". He received the lethal injection and died as a result of this overdose of chemicals.The Nazis claimed that he died of abdominal typhoid in order to hide the fact that the priest had been killed. His remains were dismembered and incinerated.

What was public support for the war like? How did it vary by country and how did it change as time went on? I'm looking for specifics on Imperial Japan, especially in regards to "the grand suicide" that was planned if an American invasion took place.

Thanks in advance!

This. The guy had every chance to win the war pretty decisively, but his autistic obsession with capturing the Polish king who he believed betrayed both him and God (yes, literally) and also absolutely refusing to give up a town made of wood in the middle of marshes and lakes because of the principle of not giving up anything meant he could never succeed, however long it took for that to catch up with him.

My only idea is abolishion of Soviet projects like Teletan, since it would work simmilar way like megaprojects of Germans in late war, no real progress or effectivity but shitload of resources wasted.

I've read here and there claims that openly discussing the Holocaust during the few decades that followed it was generally frowned upon in the US, Europe and even Israel. Is that accurate?

I've also read about a series of explanation: Jews in general and Holocaust survivors in particular wished to forget and move on; it took a while for the general public to be educated about and realize the full extent of the genocide; the US didn't bring it up to ensure cordial diplomatic relations with its then new ally Germany and the UK didn't want to boost the appeal of Zionist agitation in mandatory Palestine; and some other I can't think of at the top of my head. Is there any truth to those?

I've also read about how the very word "the Holocaust" with a capital H (to refer specifically to Nazi-sponsored antisemitic extermination policies) was actually coined no earlier then the '70s until which drier official Nazi terminology was usually employed (Endlösung, etc). Is there any evidence for this?

a lost of them where arriving at a time that the jews already in Palestine where struggling them selves.
So a lot of the survivors go pushed to the bottom of society. Forced to eek out a living in what ever way was possible.
It got even worse during the 1948 war.
Boats with survivorss comming in where check for fighting aged men who where immediately conscripted. Several of this of the boat groups where thrown into some the bloodiest fighting, the lest prepared, lightest armed and most fucked units. I've read accounts of survivors from those survivor units that recall the dead that no one could identify. Because they had no papers and they didn't even have the time to get to know the other members of their units.
you might argue that desperate times make for deperate actions.
But the overall tone of things doesn't mesh with the image isreal or the jews try to project.
As a new vigorous nation that isn't like the poor wretches in the camps. (can be poor wretches fresh out of the camps dying in a screwed from the start frontal assault with out even a canteen for water)
Or that of the worlds most mistreated people ever on earth. (why would the world care about the holocaust when you care so little for it as to send it's survivors on doomed assaults with nary a thought or care)
They literally considered survivors to be Eurotrash, since there was a large local population of middle eastern Jews in Palistine at the time.

Faggot that phrase wasnt said by Porfirio Diaz
They believed in representation, as was standard in the Monarchy. When they could not achieve representation, they moved for independence. It was basically a vote of no confidence with violent consequence.
