a nice story...
    #4154439 - 05/09/05 07:51 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Ever heard that WW2 story about Nezis and Americans deciding not to fight?

If not, I'll tell it here, it is a true story

There was a battlefield, two trenches, one with germans and one with americans (or was it britains, don't know but I'll call them americans)
there was a temorary piece (how do you call that?) and everyone was tired

don't know the details of how it happened, but americans took a white flag and invited the germans to come out too, and they shook hands and americans gave them some beer and exchanged a few words

after the piece ended and it was time to fight again, both sides
refused to fight, and all that happened was americans asking the germans how was the beer, so both "teams" were relocated and replaced by others

If all people were like that, those idiots like Hitler, Bush and Sadam would be just a couple of old men without any power

Great story and an interesting point! :laugh:

I've heard something similar happening, but it was placed during the First World War. It was Christmas Eve, and the white flag was put out and Americans, Britons and Germans shared what they had to make an Xmas feast which they partook of together. Sounds kind of quaint nowadays. I honestly wonder if somehow we've become more vicious these days, but maybe that's just the cynic in me talkin'.....  :confused:

I've heard this story back in highschool on english class, so it has been a while, I forgot the details, but yes it was Christmas eve, so it must be the same story you've heard

:thumbup: good point.

But, you a lot of court martials would be issued towards the beginning... as more and more people refuse to fight issuing court martials would be irrelevant.

It won't happen, too many people are mind-fucked into fleecing their liberties for a bunk ass war that has no end until domination is achieved.

Apparently wars with no ends are thought to be good. War on terrorism, with little in way of definition beyond those that we don't support. (USA supporting Israel)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/june/5/newsid_2654000/2654251.stm This is seen as acceptable, and is seemingly related to America's current strategy. Only preemptive attacks are now preemptive wars. It is very easy to suggest that Israel is a terrorist nation by how we define them in the loosest sense. Although because we support them, as it is in line with Biblical prophecy.... theirs nothing we can do.

The drug war... same thing.

I'm surprised by the sheer stupidity of the masses buying every silly notion sold to them.

I never heard of that, only that the French and Germans had a cease fire on christmas and met in the middle of the battlefield to clean up the dead, and enjoy some christmas festivities.

Humans have a way of playing the balancing act between testing the limits of their humanity in order to accomplish tasks that need to be done, war being one of them.
