Sailer “The battles of 1862-63, cnitluaming with Gettysburg (where only one civilian died), were arguably the closest the human race came to war truly being (in Churchill’s words) cruel and magnificent. No, these were actually fairly minor battles between opposing armies of a country that, at thst time, was still a developing country and didn’t have the scale of production and lethal technology that armies had in either World War ! or II. All the greatest land battles ever were between the Red Army and the Wehrmacht in WWII. The number of casualties in the siege of Stalingrad, for instance, was moroe than 10 X greater than that of all battles of the American Civil War COMBINED. Adn whar do you mean by cruel and magnificent? More cruel and magnificent than Thermopylae, where 300 Spartans held the entire Persian army of a quarter million men, fighting to the last one of them. Were the battles of the American Civil War greater than that? Greater than Waterloo? Greater than Gaugamela? I find your fcber-nationalism obnoxious and annoying. It’s like, to you, the U.S.A is the greatest ever at everything. The way you constantly chest-thump and blow the born of the U.S.A is almost cartoonish. It is ridiculous. It is amzing to me that someone can live so vicariously through their countries and derive so much sense of self-worth from it.
I saw that this weekend at Prytania Theatre. I love Prytania and that ad! Too bad 10,000 B.C. was a let down.
