    Wait, when has war ENDED communism. I thought it tended to create it (russian in wwii, china in their revolutionary war, north korea in the korean war, etc).

    Yeah, but they never fighted against those things, they where just side-effecs.

    Actually, Russia became Communist in WWI. North Korea became Communist before the Korean War. And, if you are inclined to believe Osama bin Laden, the Russian invasion of Afghanistan caused the fall of the Soviet Union.

    Oops, typo. Of course it was WWI, 1917 I believe. They were led by John Lennon, right? And Richard Trotsky?

    Slavery still exists, even in the US.
    Fascism is more common than ever.
    Nazism was a combination of racism and fascism. Both still exist.
    Communism <a href=” still exists
    War is a Racket

    it ended legal slavery. of course other political systems exist, but war’s changed the power in many other countries, whether for better or for worse.

    When you look at it though, the Gulf war really served to end the Soviet Union and the Cold War. The USSR saw our stealth technology, and realized that they simply did not have enough economic power to duplicate, let alone defend against, our technology. And yes, though communism may still exist, its on the way out. Once the USSR fell, many communist countries that depended on it fell or were crippled as well. For example- Cuba depended on about 5 Billion dollars per year from the USSR, and when Gorbachev said “No more”, Cuba fell into a horrible state.… Read more »

    People still find planes buried in the deserts in Iraq.

    It would have taken less than a day to send all nuclear weapons back to Russia (where they bought everything aside from the yellow cake Uranium).

    Bah.

    War solves everything. It’s the definition that needs to be understood to mean conflict and this world doesn’t exist or evolve without conflict.

    Protesting any war is naive and stupid. But at least you’re allowed to protest without a tank running you over.

    “Gulf war really served to end the Soviet Union and the Cold War.”
    Soviet Union dissolved Dec. 26, 1991
    Operation Desert Storm began Jan. 17, 1991.
    “The USSR saw our stealth technology,”
    Then it must have not been very good stealth 🙂
    I am not saying that war is never justified, I am saying that 90% of wars do nothing other than get poor people killed and make rich people richer.
    I have to cynically agree with mAgnUS, “Protesting any war is naive and stupid.” Protesting has never really accomplished much.

    ahahahhahaha AHAHAHAHHhahahahahahhhHAHAHAHhha A little advice about history. Don’t just *think about* what the logical event would be and then assume it’s true. Crack a book. There have been volumes written on the USSR’s dramatic economic decline. For years, the people had been going long stretches of time without basic items such as food and soap. Long tomes have been written about how Gorbachev’s reforms strengthened the various puppet governments, many of which spontaneously declared independence, completely destroying the planned economy which had been depended on these Soviets from Stalin’s day, and making it virtually possible to address the problems militarily.… Read more »
