This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

>3.9 million direct famine deaths
Where did all the corpses go? It seems to me that so called "Holodomor" is nothing more than a myth invented by post-Soviet Ukraine to use as a tool against Russia in politics.

Capitalists use the supposed famine as an excuse to discredit the Soviet Union.

Supporters of the genocide myth are mostly Ukranian nationalists who want to retroactively hit out at the Soviet state for crushing nationalist and fascist ambitious during WW2 and the pre-war period.

I made a Turkmen friend yesterday, but he looks white

I made research on Turkmen people and they look like pic related

How come they look European ? Why aren't they slenty eyed like the other Turks ?

Is it because they live next to Russia ? Which prompts me to ask where the original Turkic people white ? Did they become yellow once they moved further east ?

Or is it possible that Turkic people are actually Slavs like the Russians ?

I don't get it

Turkmen tribes were still raiding northern Iran (and especially Persian caravans) for slaves into the 19th century. It was a big point of pride for a Turkmen to confess how many slaves he has taken. Most of them were sold to Uzbeks in Transoxiana but obviously a lot were also kept for themselves.
Turks were once white, they have slanty eyes and dark skin due to mixing with Greeks.
They assimilate lot of iranian nomads
Their YDNA is mostly western eurasian meaning r1a/b and J.
It's actually mostly Q.

Kind of like what you are doing right now?

You're right and I'm a hypocrite.
But I'd rather have discussion of this nature compared to retard IQposters or people screeching the word nigger and babbling about how Africans never have and never will amount to anything.
>Europeans only had relations with local women due to the lack of their own women or for business ties (slave trade). Once those the latter was negated and colonial migration was feasible for entire families or couples.

Hey to be honest people to this have the exotic beaty fetish, so I don´t think it would be that weird for an italian to go to eritrea just to get some action with the locals

When settlers came over they mostly came with family.
Not to say there weren't any but they were few in number.

Has Islam ever been a truly pacifying factor or a true cause for solidarity among Muslim nations (aside from political and ethnic concerns)? Why do many Muslim groups fight each other against the wishes of the Prophet, much less on the sacred months specifically forbidden for warfare in the Quran?

Most Saudi tribal Arabs hate Khashoggi and denigrate him for his non-Arab Turkish ancestry calling him agent of Turkey.
Arab Bedouins in Israel serve in the IDF against Levantine Palestinians. And normalization of ties with Israel isn't the main agenda, beating Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood is. Turkey has full diplomatic relations with Israel and an embassy. Saudi Arabia does not.
Ottomans used to do worse than bonesaws and the Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey want them back.
Do you support the Muslim Brotherhood?
>That one hadith where Mohammed says the side of the head of Satan will rise from the Najd

To be honest, if there's one thing I can respect about commies it's that their leaders tended to look kind of ugly.
It's a bit of a problem with the right-wing because they always seemed to have a kind of homosexual and effete fascination with appearance.

Why did the USSR destroy the Aral sea?

1) Paranoia isn't rational.
2) They didn't see a contradiction because, for them, both international labour and international capital were conspiring against the nation-state. They didn't like foreign workers, they didn't like foreign companies, they didn't like like foreign banks, etc.
3) Big businesses and banks from the west did cooperate with the Bolsheviks. It just wasn't a jewish thing, it was a mutual benefit thing: businesses got paid, banks got interest, the bolsheviks got technology and expertise - race wasn't a factor.
Wasn't it because of a botched project of sorts which was abandoned when the Soviet Union collapsed?
It became two botched projects of sorts by two countries that can't coordinate for shit.
Ah yes

can you give even 1 example of Russia chimping out?
Every single bad thing, every war that happened in the entire world in the last 200 years can easily be traced back and blamed on either USA or Germany, what did the imaginary Russian scary boogeyman do to you?

I still remember the boner-inducing clips of Russians wiping off ISIS from the map in Syria in like 2 days, while the American halfbreeds couldnt do it in 3 years.
Stay mad, you sub-khokhol level IQ baltoid.
The Mediterranean is still boxed in by Suez and Gibraltar which are owned by an American vassal and Great Britain. Russia cannot be safe until the Anglo encirclement of their country is smashed
What about Kaliningrad, Novorossiysk and Vladivostok?

Precisely we're touching the thing in class, it's about the nature of the religion, at. Least in Rome times it was due the fact the Christianity was patronal instead of contractual(I care for you in exchange of devotion, instead of the Roman style of appease me with the right rituals and i'do shit happen)
Not him but literally every thread on the Trinity prompts a string of posts from Christians unwittingly posting heresies. It's pretty clear most Christians don't get the Trinity.
