I have made no glorification of the Nazi regime, where did I say it would have been a good thing if they won the war? That they should have killed more people than they did? How is my criticism of their inneficiency glorification of the regime?RichTO90 wrote:Two sides to a coin really.

Tough question ....
"Different opinions" are one thing. When that "different opinion" is glorification of totalitarian regimes - I probably shouldn't have said fascist, except strictly WRT World War II - is when I get irritated. When that glorification is masqueraded as a condemnation of the "evil Allies" for contravening "laws of war" that didn't exist and then boo-hooing over all the poor dead German civilians is when I get angry.
I think that it was incredible that we actually managed to free Europe from the Nazis, considering their very strong strategic position after June 1940 and that we also didn't have to let the Soviets bring western europe inside the iron curtain. To aknowledge the greatness of these feats requires also to aknowledge the formidable enemies which had to be defeated. While I don't exactly glorify the allied fighting power, though partly because I lash out on the arrogance regarding the western allies. Though dropping millions of tons of bombs over civilian heads wasn't exactly a good thing the allies did.
Finally, you claim you never insult me but now you call me a glorifier of facist regimes. Though I don't know the reason why you would think so, not being a huge fan of the anglo-american countries, though, doesn't make me a glorifier of facist regimes.
The 90,000 wounded and killed in the first 3 months of the western front is the correct number. I don't understand what's the problem with using it, I don't think that many of the 200,000 MIA in the same period were KIA and WIA and I wasn't convinced by the arguments provided that the use of this data is wrong.OTOH, misuse of data is simply misuse of data. And when that misuse is calculated, ignores corrections, and simply repeats the same nonsensical litany of bad data and claims for simple correlation "proving" causation is also when I get angry. As has already been demonstrated by his most recent return, guaporense sheds crocodile tears over being "insulted", while claiming "sorrow" over having "in the past" used bad data, something that, oh no my goodness, never, will he do it again. And then promptly posts bogus "casualty statistics", which he was long ago corrected on, in another thread here at AHF, requiring yet another correction.
