    Well he had a choice at that time and he never had the foresight that the man he saved will turn to be one of the most villainous people in history. Maybe in an alternative universe where tandy shot well no point in thinking about it.

  6. kakashi sentai

    it was a dirty cia coup to try and infect china with the wests fake form of democracy. it was quickly squished though. i hope all the evil subversive colonizing scumbags get stomped out. we can tell a tree by its colonizing evil history when we simply look back at history.

  10. ray mendez

    It took 2:41 to even mention USA had missiles in Turkey. Never mentioned that USSR sending missiles to Cuba was a REACTION to USA having missiles in Turkey. Never mentioned that those missiles were nuclear. Instead, he calls them by their name [PGM-19] "Jupiter" but calls Soviet missiles "nuclear missiles" instead of their name "R-12 Dvina". This is what biased history looks like :)

    A History Channel should know that the Aztecs died out and turned into different civilizations, with the most important being the Mexicas (Not Mexicans). It's sort of how people of the United States is not called English people.

    Why do the drawings of the students make them appear like psychopaths, whereas the soldiers just look like they're sitting doing yoga?

    My grandparents said that during the great leap forward people ate clay and dirt to fill their bellies or just sesame seed oil in water to give them some flavour...those were certainly horrible times.

    Killing hitler is not a good thing, its only good if you knew how the people would suffer if you didnt kill him

  35. A Human

    I came here to comment; It’s a penis.

  36. Kevin Hernandez-Rives

    About the teddy bear thing, the portrayal in the animation is a little inaccurate. The hunt had been going badly, so people took a bear cub and tied it up to a tree for Teddy to kill so that he could leave with at least a single kill. But shooting a cub tied to a tree just for the sake of it was pretty pointless and just defeats the purpose of hunting for sport, so he didn't do it. It wasn't some great moral or compassionate thing. But it served as great PR afterwards.

    Individually even the most combat hardened legionaries don't amount to much on the battlefield, but in groups, I doubt there are other military force which can match the Legion.

  76. TheMadLaddTV

    I doubt you’ll see this but I have a story to tell. My great great uncle was one of those belly ball gunners. He went on numerous raids in Germany and made it back. But one raid he was shot down and managed to get the ball turret back into the plane before hitting the ground. He was woken up by a German farmer with a pitchfork. He was soon after captured by the Germans and was sent to a P.O.W camp. They treated the prisoners horribly. They barely fed them and when they did it was only raw potatoes that was fertilized by animal manure. They made them do hard labor and other things. One night they woke them up and marched them into the open snow. He thought they were about to get executed but turns out they had marched them to the British lines and he returned home safely. He didn’t tell his family what happened in his time in the military until he died. Before he died he had someone write a book for him and in said book it described what it was like in training, the ball turret, at base, and in the camp. They books are meant for family only. But I think it’s ok I say it here. Anyways thanks for reading if you do
