Yes. Nuclear weapons were invented because of that war, and that led to world stability :D

Meaning, it didn't answer anything positively.

I think he's saying that since it failed to kill all the jews, it effectively accomplished nothing. I didn't know AMTY was such a racist, but whatev's.

lol, how am I a racist?

It's factually false that the Holocaust accomplished nothing. It accomplished something. Whether or not that something is a desirable outcome is irrelevant.

In many cases it is the only answer. Diplomacy only works if someone is open to diplomacy. Diplomacy is useless if a individual would just as soon rape your wife, kill your children and cut your head off.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

It's funny how this exceedingly vague thread had a Godwin pulled on it, and now we're talking about Jewish people and the holocaust.

It was inevitable, now, im not proposing that violence be used to solve all our issues, just that it be recognised as a tactic that has never failed.

Violence has never failed to get the majority of people to pay their taxes... unless it has.

It has never failed to entertain.

Not always the Best answer..

sometimes it can be counter-productive.. but it's definitely on the table :o)
