If you haven’t seen the movie, here is (sort of) a spoiler
alert. They detonate an EMP bomb in a major city.
Just think of all the airplanes, traffic and people on
life support that they just killed.
Although he played a role in the creation of the
League of Nations, re-segregating the government
was definitely not a high point of his career. Or the
fact that he has been accused of indirectly causing
the Vietnam War by refusing to help Ho Chi Minh
against the French (who then decided to
look elsewhere aka China).
As the Cherokee will tell you, getting the military to
force them out of their land was not cool. Although
we have to admit, Manifest Destiny aka “this land
is ours because we’re awesome” was first
introduced by President James Polk.
As a kid you thought he was just the helpless little mouse trying
not to be eaten by the big mean cat. Then you grow up and
realize he’s a good for nothing thief and Tom is just doing
his job to protect the house.
During the Irish Famine she blocked the Turkish Sultan
from sending in food because it was more than her
personal contribution and she didn’t want to look bad.
And that was after her government basically caused
the famine in the first place! But good guy Sultan
smuggled the food ashore anyway.
Similar to pirates, Vikings have been romanticized. If you
just read a little bit about their culture though, you will be
thankful for wherever it is that you live.
Everyone thinks it’s a beautiful and touching love story.
No. It’s about a couple of teenagers that end up causing
the deaths of numerous people, including themselves,
because of their stupidity.
Once again, it’s usually hipsters who didn’t actually live under
Chavez that spout his greatness. The feeling is not
reciprocated by many Venezuelans.
