How about it? Have a sub-thread for WWII. After all, look at the number of topics we have just on WWII and some of us are history buff when it comes to WWII?

I'll vote yes. It's one of the most common topics discussed and many times those conversations and threads get bumped and re-opened which makes other non-WW2 topics get lost in the shuffle.

Mind reader. This thread is blessed to enjoy posters possessing extensive,
detail-oriented WWII knowledge... and the most supported claims are backed up,
albeit from historians and politicians on the victors' side.
Sometimes a few of us, those whom are willing to entertain, or have specific knowledge of, facts outside of the "mainstream" feel disregarded, and even fearful to be labeled "bigots", which is unfortunate. Walking on tulips, we feel unable to express ourselves.
That aside, the preponderance and domination of WWII threads is tiresome for all.
There is a need to consolidate, and perhaps have a sub-forum for the two WW's.
I maintain a serious respect for all contributors to this forum that is genuine,
especially those whom at a prima facie level are in disagreement with me.

Yet, my lingering impression is that the forum is just a little bit too "PC", and
could be more open-minded to allow some controversial matters to be discussed
seriously, if possible.
Breaking off WWII, or grouping it with WWI, known by contemporaries as the
Great War, would be beneficial for all readers.
The same can be said for the Civil War, as we refer to it, but at the time it was known
as the War Between the States.

I also voted "yes", but if such a thing ever comes to pass I feel sorry for the moderator who will have to go back through all the history threads and place them in the correct sub-forum. That will be a long, tedious task.

OK, Thought you used that you used the ship in a fireball as a metaphor to the WWII sub-thread.

There is controversy like...should Hitler have split his panzer divisions after Smolensk vs. driving straight to Moscow...and then there is controversy like...Zionist Jewish bankers control the world and are the reason Germany lost WW1...the former is encouraged...the latter is flushed away like the steaming pile of horsecrap it is.

that is your opinion, not a fact.. if millions of people believe something, it is historically
relevant.
