did you mean like the attack in pearl harbor? or the great raid? yeah the Americans did made good use of the Philippines as strategic position leading many Filipinos suffering along the way... i hated them for that... but hey the past is the past its 20th century now, and Americans did help the Filipinos defeat the Japanese invaders and did provide funding after the war.

If you've ever taken a history course,then you should probably know that the most interesting part is learning about the various wars and battles that have taken place throughout history,what was your favorite to hear or learn about?mine favorite wars were the wars between the ottomans and europeans until the ottoman empire crumbled after the naval battle of corinth.


I hate wars -_____- but to be honest, they're interesting..dun kill me >____>

I love listening to stories about them and yes I do take history course. To be honest, I love listening to twist and turns in wars and some of the secrets behind them are interesting =D

i'm not saying favorite war as in having fun watching ppl die,what i mean is wars that u learn about in history,the tactics and logistics of them,the secrets of the wars,and the legends of the various war heroes that start up around them,and yes i get that sum ppls families suffered in recent wars such as WWll,mine did too.im half dutch,my oma and opa had to flee holland and come to canada to avoid the fighting.but the thing is,every point in history is full of war,eventually old wars stop being full of horror and no longer make u think about the poor soldiers who died,and it seems more like just another story.

yes i realize that the title wasnt well thought out,i shoulda said favorite war to learn about or favorite war story or sumthing.and no,im not a fan of war but i do understand from a cynical point of view that without war we'd be even more overpopulated and that history always repeats itself so we should learn about wars because they will happen again,also...without any conflict in life we wouldnt have any technology,apart from a few simple tools to gather food and other resources,we would not have any of the greatest human achievements without war forcing us to adapt.

I like every war except the Cold War. 'Cause that one's kind of lame.
Posted 9/17/08
I guess you meant favorite war historical. I personal don't like war either, but I guess having your favorite war history is okay because we usually learn how wars could also change history.

My Favorite War history:

Ghengis Khan; Mongolian Invasions
Khmelnytsky Uprising; Polish-Lithuanian vs Cossack/Urkranians
American Revolution
American Civil War
Great Sioux War of 1876-77
Barbary Coast War
Wars of Scottish Independence
Japanese Sengoku War Era

I am interested in War, I mean I like lots of war game but I like the history and US History is my #1 Favorite Subject. Hmm Ima explained about the Khmer Rouge *Some Information could be false*

Let me think about the Khmer rouge attack on Cambodia, I don't know much but my families was effected by it.

Khmer Rouge was created by Pol Pot, hoping to change Cambodia into a communist State. Khmer Rouge name was founded when Vietnam is so upset on what the US and the Democratic system has done. Most of the Vietnam view Communist as their savior, So Vietnam split into North and South. Khmer Rouge viewed Communist is the best government system for Cambodia but I think he was from a Democratic group but renamed it. I never learn much because so much information was lost and we don't even have track of human records. Cambodia was kind of corrupted that time. 1,500,000 people have died which is about 1/5 population. In power, the Khmer Rouge carried out a radical program that included isolating the country from foreign influence, closing schools, hospitals and factories, abolishing banking, finance and currency, outlawing all religions, confiscating all private property and relocating people from urban areas to collective farms where forced labor was widespread. I also heard they teach children to be the Khmer Rouge and hate the adult. In a video I see a girl looking at the board with a mother, father, son, and daughter. She crossed out the Mom and the Dad and raise his hand with cheer as the Students clap. Khmer Rouge would kill

* anyone with connections to the former government or with foreign governments (outside world/nation)
* professionals and intellectuals - in practice this included almost everyone with an education, or even people wearing glasses (which, according to the regime, meant that they were literate) (Smart)
* ethnic Vietnamese, ethnic Chinese, Cambodian Christians, Muslims and the Buddhist monks
* Homosexuals
* "economic sabotage" for which many of the former urban dwellers (who had not starved to death in the first place) were deemed to be guilty of by virtue of their lack of agricultural ability.


For the intelligent part I saw a video where a person check your hand. If they say your smart they cover your face with a ribbon and shoot you on the head. The killing Field and the Torture is so far the worst. Killing Field = Kill the heck of the peoples in any way. I found this one weird Torture. For male, they probably rip your nipple off and make a hole and they put those Centipede you see in Asia and put them inside.......or something like that.

What I learn: My mom and her families left Cambodia after hearing the Vietnam Conflict. They left before the Khmer Rouge started and went to Thailand. My Dad however, was captured and put in Labor Camp and forced to work. 3-5 years later they break out. I think he said he escape at night with most of the farmer so I am guess the Khmer Rouge start shooting when they see escaper, busy fighting, or run away. My mom friend who come to our house sometime, he is Chinese Communist but he like to stay at USA. I think he Khmer too.My mom said he own factories at Cambodia and is a rich guy. Until the Khmer Rouge attack, he lost all his factories and workers, and I think he came to the day the Khmer Rouge captured Phnom Phem. I forgot the rest so I don't know how he got out but he still had a lost brother/sister somewhere and he don't know if they are dead, alive, or somewhere for more then 30 year. Nothing much except seeing a guy with no right arm at Mom work. Most of the Khmer Families was effected by the Khmer Rouge. My best friend father is rich until the Khmer Rouge take everything.




Said on the a internet site- The Khmer Rouge regime took power on 17 April 1975 and was overthrown on 7 January 1979. More than three million people perished. The end of the Khmer Rouge period was followed by a civil war. That war finally ended in 1998, when the Khmer Rouge political and military structures were dismantled.

Woo long paragraph I type I just did some studying lol, there is poor grammar sorry. This is one of the War I like to learn since most of the Khmer peoples I know was effected by it. Time to watch the Kiliing Field Movie from Google Video *look through bookmark*. I wonder if I know any other war I might post here.
