Behind the Sinking of the Lusitania

Wolfgang6 Wrote: Sep 02, 2014 1:38 PM
The Lusitania, like all large British passenger liners, was required to be able to mount a battery of six inch guns in order to convert her into an armed merchant cruiser. Where the British deception was in the carrying of several million rounds of small arms ammunition, gun cotton, and other military stores. It was these supplies that made her a valid military target. The Germans weren't even obligated to issue a printed warning - but they did. finally, the Lusitania's captain decided to avoid zigzagging in the waters off Ireland - a fatal error which put him directly in the path of the German U-boat. Hardly a master conspiracy.

Care to document that? Especially considering that the principle complaint of the English is that more English tax money flows north than anything equivalent coming south. Eh, eh?

Salmond is a charlatan whose REAL interest is to be the top dog in an independent country. His supporters have a rather interesting perspective that they are entitled to keep the advantages of being part of the UK - like sterling as the currency - but with none of the obligations. I've lost my respect for the Scots over this - all they are interested in is government handouts at someone else's expense. They lost their shipbuilding industry because it became cheaper to build ships elsewhere and they refused to acknowledge that fact. Do they really think that NATO will want them - a glorified Ruritania with a border guard military, a shaky economy and a refusal to allow nuclear-armed submarines in their waters? The dead highlanders that helped build an empire must be turning in their graves.
Really? The militant atheists seem to be doing a pretty good job of it.
remember...a lot of the worst liberal/progressive types are the LAST individuals who would ever serve and wear a uniform.
David - provide the sources which support your assertions or sit down and shut up. Your ignorance is sickening.
Of course they wouldn't listen...they don't have the time to do some research because it would take them away from their asinine electronic devices and their Facebook obsession. Millenials are an educational disaster - they can't write, they can't speak, they are historically ignorant and generally socially inept. In short, perfect fodder for a demagogue.

Gee...does that mean that copies of "Hustler" magazine will be put in the rooms instead?

Nice try. That was Churchill's comment in describing Britain's Royal Navy. It has nothing to do with the U.S. Navy. Put your ignorance where the light doesn't shine.
Nothing like trying to breathe new life into that perennial Republican wet dream of doing away with Social Security and forcing everyone to take their money to Wall Street and the tender mercies of the snake oil peddlers in the brokerages and hedge funds. Sure...and I have some Bolivian bat guano bonds I'd like to sell you. Bunkie...it ain't gonna happen.

The poofsters get away with these intimidation tactics out of Dr. Goebbel's playbook because too many people are afraid to talk back. Tell these stormtrooper wannabes to back off, to shut up or even threaten lawsuits. It is the only thing they will understand.
