I'd be lying if I said I did more than sorta skim this thread, but something that has escaped people's notice:

the article wrote:and we are hoping that once the script clears the approval process, China will come up with services and support.


There you go. Your man's just looking for someone else to finance his project. He wants to make a big movie with a big budget, so he chooses a subject that will allow him to do that with little personal expense.

Capitalists make me laugh. They say that capitalism works because its cold and logical. But when a capitalist finances a project in a capitalist way that isn't all rainbows and happy clouds with regard to capitalism (ie, Pursuit of Happiness) they shit their pants.

Besides, as far as we know this could be as Marxist as "Enemy at the Gates."

You seem to be absolutely obsessed with counting and recouting some phony death statistics in whatever thread you are in :eh:

Franco didn't just kill communists. He killed Liberal Republicans, anarchists, socialists, social-democrats, Basque and Catalan natiomnalist and Freemasons.

You can't honestly try and say that they are all communsists.

I know. And all the groups you just mentioned were executed for spreading radical ideas which were incompatible with the Spanish State. Of course, the Nationalists also often executed Republican prisoners-of-war, but this was common on both sides.

I'm not really sure where you're going with this one. Those eradicated by Franco's regime were largely leftists.

According to our nice civilized laws and everything:
Franco was the one who was incompatible with the Spanish State.

Indeed. Not that I value representative democracy, but he wasn't the rightful head of state.

They were the Spanish state. Mabye incompatible with your vision of the state.

You claimed Franco only killed communists to try and justify his actions. He killed everyone from far-left (anarchists (ftw) and communists) to center (liberals).

Surely, Germany had fought a war ostensibly against Russian-promoted pan-Slavism during the First World War

Actually in IWW Germany fought under the banner of Pan-Germanism and sought ethnic cleasning of Poles and Jews from Polish territories to make room for German colonists.
Proposals were made to use famine to reduce Polish population.
rather than the Slavs who carried out the oppressive acts.

Stop using that insulting term-Slavs are long gone and to classify nations using Slavic languages as one group speaks of historical ignorane or ill will motivated either by German or Russian nationalism.
I wasn't aware those ethnic German civilians were promoting bigotry against anyone.

Then perhaps you should learn history like German minority forming Selbstschutz that mass murdered Polish civilians, over 50% of Germans supporting Nazism post-war in polls, 37% of so saying extermination of Jews and Poles was necessary, or German minority in WW1 pushing for annexation of Polish Łodz into Germany.

By the Spanish State, I'm referring to Franquist Spain; not your idealistic vision of what Spain should have become after the fall of the Second Republic.

Indeed. Not that I value representative democracy, but he wasn't the rightful head of state.


Because you say so?

They were the Spanish state. Mabye incompatible with your vision of the state.


They were remnants of the old Republic. Once the Nationalists won the war, did you expect them to forgive and forget?

You claimed Franco only killed communists to try and justify his actions. He killed everyone from far-left (anarchists (ftw) and communists) to centre (liberals).


That wasn't my point. As I just stated in reply to you, leftists of all stripes were killed under Franco's regime, and largely for good reason. Now I'm left wondering what your point is.

Actually in IWW Germany fought under the banner of Pan-Germanism and sought ethnic cleasning of Poles and Jews from Polish territories to make room for German colonists.

Primarly, Germany entered the war in defense of its ally, Austria-Hungary, after the Austro-Hungarian government was attacked by Serbian terrorism, and then threatened with Russian aggression. The German Empire sought to preserve, and to some extent, increase its continental status, by curtailing the threat posed by a fiercely pan-Slavic Russian Empire, and a French population still extremely bitter after their previous defeat at the hands of Prussia in the Franco-Prussian War.

Stop using that insulting term-Slavs are long gone and to classify nations using Slavic languages as one group speaks of historical ignorane or ill will motivated either by German or Russian nationalism.


Do you think I mean to use it in an insulting manner?

Then perhaps you should learn history like German minority forming Selbstschutz that mass murdered Polish civilians, over 50% of Germans supporting Nazism post-war in polls, 37% of so saying extermination of Jews and Poles was necessary, or German minority in WW1 pushing for annexation of Polish Łodz into Germany


Yes, some small German communities supported the German invader, as they viewed its presence as possible liberation from the various Slavic administrations. However, this does not apply to most German civilians living in Eastern Europe, who were targeted for victimization by numerous bigoted factions during and after the war.

Nice revisionism, but German politicians were seeking war since later half of XIX century to expand their territory. Make propaganda as you will-Germany was keeping non-German territories and sought to control more by expansion, combined with ethnic cleansing of conquered population to make room for German settlers. Whatever other countries did-it was just reaction to German expansionism.

yes, some small German communities supported the German invader

Out of 700.000 Germans in Poland 100,000 took part in Selbstschutz. Considering the fact that they were able men, exluded elderly,women and children, an overwheling number of Germans supported Genocide of Poles.

possible liberation from the various Slavic administrations

There was no Slavia country-you are writing a fantasy book ?
However, this does not apply to most German civilians living in Eastern Europe
