Zhuge Liang--

A Chinese general"nearly 2,000 years ago, Zhuge needed to defend his village with only a ragtag army. He decided to sit outside the gates sipping tea until the enemy arrived. Fearing an ambush, the enemy retreated.

Why is the Inquisition your favorite? I am unsure why mass murdering people not following a certain belief set would be classified as one's favorite, but to each their own I guess.

Inquisition removed Islamic filth from Spain and brought back Christian social cohesion.

Um, let's just say that I don't want that religion to decline in popularity any time soon.

Ah, yes, mass murder of Jews, the Moors, and heretics is great for "social cohesion". You know what I always say: If you want to create peace, massacre civilians -_-
/s
Not to mention that the Reformation was only about 20 years after its start, so it certainly didn't bring back cohesion.

Anyway, my favorite moment in recent years was Desert Shield/Storm. It's too bad the lessons of multilateralism and the Powell Doctrine's point about using overwhelming force to execute a clearly defined mission were ignored under the younger Bush.

Prior to that, the Preliminary Emanicipation Proclamation and the actual Emancipation Proclamation. It was the perfect tactic for making the war about slavery (which absolutely had to go) while still keeping the border states on our side (well, suspension of the writ of habeus corpus didn't hurt, but I prefer constitutional solutions to problems).

Bismarck's unification of Germany was also really spectacular.
SO to Bailey, the love of my life <3
