It's 1944, the Allies are ashore in Normandy and the Soviets are rolling the Axis back to its Operation Barbarossa starting point. The situation for Germany is getting desperate. You have the following goals

>kill or remove Adolf Hitler from office
>strip the Nazi Party of its power and arrest or liquidate its leadership
>negotiate a peace with the Western Allies
>win the war in the East
>save Germany from utter destruction
>don't die

How do you go about it?

Defect to the Western Allies
I'd just shoot Hitler in the face and be done with it. Then I'd pray for my soul until my execution.
Give in to all Allied demands

Is Taiwan its own thing or are they just Chinese who don't want to be ruled by the CCP?
157 replies and 13 images omitted. Click here to view.
The idea that Mainland Chinese are being oppressed by the CCP falls apart if you refuse to grant them the right to immigrate to Taiwan, become naturalized, and eventually be allowed to participate in liberal democracy. The narrative would switch to Chinese people being complicit in their own oppression and no amount of exposure to liberal democracy is going to convince them to break away from aligning with the interests of their authoritarian government.
>they are taiwanese because they said so
They don't even say so, it's called the republic of China, not the republic of Taiwan, they use the flag of the chinese nationalists, speak chinese.

The idea of taiwanese nationalism is a new concept.
Yes, the 80 year exile is only temporary dude, this is the equivilant of a retarded portuguese imperialist claiming that Brazil's totally gonna be brought back into the fold in 1922.

A mandate is not inherently moral, or just, you fucking dullard.

What did mongols think of the jews?
They forced muslims and jews to stop doing circumcision or some shit I'm pretty sure. They also didn't like their ritual slaughter and food opinions desu.

Why are anti-semites considered the bad guys? They unironically believed Jews secretly controlled the world and were evil so they believed they were fighting for a good cause. I'd be more worried about the ones who knew it was bullshit but went along with it anyway for personal gain. In fact that's probably what I'd do, just collect Jewish gold teeth then when the war starts to go south make an excuse to go to Spain then abscond to Argentina, seems like the übermensch move.
your question is easily answered with the following analysis: every other video/book you see analyzing ancient or medieval battles, massacres and history in general you're presented with a distinct neutral narration of these events, but as soon anybody has to talk about WW2 every narration becomes editorialized in tone.

95% of the people living in that place are fully Europeans that changed religion, many of them germanics (visigoths). You will probably never see the Emirs which by the way after Hacken II they looked like germans since their fathers mixed with visigots concubines for generations.

How distinct were the Franks from the Saxons? Genetically were they different from one another? How about culturally?

They are perhaps the two most famous Germanic tribes that left the biggest legacy.

But that's useful for their victim complex
Cordoba, Baghdad and Kaiouran were comfier.

But I guess it was good enough for european standards.
The ertugrul and osman shows depict byzantine empire castles and stuff. Its pretty nice.
well we had a few directors who could do it well, but they mostly depicted events from our history like time of troubles or mongol invasion. i don't think there is enough incentive to produce anything about other cultures(even the ones influential to us), although i hope it will change someday
I watched this cartoon about Mehmet II and the events leading up to 1453 as a kid. It mostly covers events from the turkish/muslim POV. Can't say it gave a balanced picture of things, but it covered a lot of ground. Events like Varna, the building of the Rumelian Castle, Orhan making his cannons, the log bridge over Galata, and the death of Ulubatlı Hasan are all depicted.

Is there any place left on Earth where your life would be in danger for insulting Christianity? "You can't find any because Christianity is a tolerant religion". No that's not why. Because as little as 100 years ago Christianity would've fucked you up for insulting it. The reason Christians don't do shit any more is because they've cucked. Every last one of them.

No argument there, and I'm sick of it. I'll happily take the 19th century variety wherever I can find it.
>as little as 100 years ago Christianity would've fucked you up for insulting it
Atheism was already a fact in all urban centers in 1921. White people have fought for the right not to be oppressed by religion, anon.
The strictures that Christ lays upon you are not oppressive unless you're a druggie or an alkie or a hopeless faggot, though.
The bullshit that your religion wants to force on people are always oppressive, that's why people rejected it and reject it still. Deal with it.

>Hey guys can I have this huge chunk of Africa for my own humanitarian reasons

How did European leaders fall for that shit

Divying up colonies as whole or splitting them was always a shitty ordeal. Leopold got his colony because many of the powers also had a "we'll back you and you support our business interests" which he proceeded to break all of them.

Also I think Belgium held onto it because they were kidna chained up to it because how a lot of the admin of the Free State were Belgian on top of the fact that he already put a lot of his money into Belgian infrastructure projects so Belgium in way was already tied to Congo regardless if it wanted to or not much to the political leaderships chagrin.
I mean, there are a lot of Christians in Africa so
Mission partially accomplished
Most of the spread of Christianity in Africa was done by Africans.
They'll bicker about who gets what like they did with the rest of Africa
and no one wanted a repeat of the Fashoda incident.

>Inspired to defend their country and pursue greater opportunity, African Americans have served in the U.S. military for generations. But instead of being treated as equal members of society upon their return from military service, thousands of Black veterans were accosted, attacked, or lynched between the end of the Civil War and the post-World War II era.

>During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, white supremacy remained law and custom throughout the nation, and many whites feared that Black soldiers who had experienced the pride of military service would resist the disenfranchisement, segregation, and second-class citizenship that still characterized the African American experience. In August 1917, U.S. Senator James Vardaman of Mississippi warned that, once a Black soldier was allowed to see himself as an American hero, it would be “but a short step to the conclusion that his political rights must be respected.” Bringing Black soldiers home to the South with expectations of equality, he predicted, would “inevitably lead to disaster.”

>For Senator Vardaman, Black soldiers’ potential as community leaders was terrifying, and the “disaster” would be a mass movement for African American rights. Indeed, many African American soldiers returned determined to fight for their own freedom and equality, and veterans like Hosea Williams and Medgar Evers played central roles in what became the civil rights movement. The effort to suppress that potential leadership made Black veterans targets, and many suffered brutal violence for protesting mistreatment or simply wearing their military uniforms. In August 1898, a Black Army private named James Neely was shot to death by a mob of white men in Hampton, Georgia, for protesting a white storekeeper’s refusal to serve him at the soda counter.

The KKK shot the people at the vegas concert?
What the fuck are you talking about, schizo?
the post you replied to was replying to somebody claiming that the vegas shooting was "white terrorism"
Well, it was deleted for whatever reason, and that post I replied to made absolutely no reference to that and was just asking in general "what the fuck is white terrorism"

The video is from a channel I like called "Whatifaltist" that covers geopolitics, history, and alternative history. I basically copied his list onto here from his video to see what you guys would have to say on these books. I am interested in reading some of them myself, and want to know if it's worth it.
