RE: A World War II Debate For You

There has been a temptation in recent years to overplay the Eastern Front and downplay the western one, simply because of the scale of casualties involved. In addition, there has been a lack of appreciation for British power at the time, the view - critical for political reasons at the time - that p...

Thing is, Baroque, I doubt many people who have any awareness of Churchill's role in the war would disagree with your criticisms - they are entirely valid, and it's certainly true for a good 20 years or so (i.e. in Churchill's lifetime) little of what he said was properly challenged.

RE: Will China Overtake The USA One Day?

Of course they will. So will India. This century is part of the decline of the west and the rise of the east. We need to face facts here. And for Europe and the United States, we need to face up to a reality that we need to be together in the hundred years to come.

RE: Airmen Told Not To Wear Uniform Outside Of Base.

It is, of course, not unusual for British servicemen to be banned from going out in uniform. At the height of the IRA campaign, they were too obvious a target and so were compelled to dress in civilian clothes on the street.
