How do germans and germanaboos justify their destruction of Rome?
Roman forces were weak and deficient (evidence came from defeats by Alaric) led to great optimism in the Germanic tribes.
They only had to kick in the door and the whole rotten structure came crashing down.
Was their any significant differences between them or is it just a meme respected by their respective propaganda ministries?
Things that happened because of their different starting conditions, feudal state vs industrial powerhouse, don't count.
dear /his/, i am an ex muslim agnostic atheist. Been an atheist for 5 years or so, but lately I feel like isn't filling this hole I had when I left my religion. It's too sober, depressing, and just empty (i'm a STEM student, so no, I don't see le ebin science as a substitute for religion, but i respect it ofc). I'm drawn towards Christianity because of its beautiful history & Jesus ofc. But i have this dilemma, I don't know enough about the difference between catholicism and orthodoxy.
Can you give me a primer on these two?

Was he right? Did his plan work out in the end?
Pretty sure Serbia Lost more than it gained from it all in the end.
Did the V-1 and V-2 rockets have serious military potential or were they just meme weapons?
they were mostly propaganda tools, which is an indirect military application.
given a few more years and they would have been accurate enough to be directly applicable like cruise missiles today.
How much did the gulag contribute to the industrialization of the USSR?
It didn't, slave labor is very inefficient. At best it was low-level resource extraction in Russian colonies in Siberia, hardly anything industrial. Actual industrialization was done by foreigners, most importantly Americans with American equipment.
How did rome manage to lose majority of battles in the second Punic war, and go on to win the war?
Of course they exercised a measure of ingenuity, as reverse-engineering ships (which weren't great copies, but they were good enough), but the bigger issue, we're to understand, particularly in the latter part of Hannibal's campaign, was the decadency and incompetence of the Carthaginian oligarchy. Rome just wanted it more.
Was it justified?
What we should've done to Germany to ensure WWII doesn't happen.
Cut both balls, and the shaft, and burn the place they used to be.

Question: how come no culture became boat-nomads? It's literally ideal for nomading.

Literally who are the fucking ancestors of polynesians & island Southeast Asians.
Am I foolish in believing that Judaism is far more theologically sound and believable, as well as life affirming when compared to Islam and Christianity?
An alleged later revelation, which adds to the pile of contradictions, is not that good of a comparison, a good comparison would be the god of the philosophers (Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus...) or the non-Abrahamic faiths.
As for life-affirming, Judaism is more of a this-world religion and definitely less obsessed with hell, but it still worships the god that commands his prophets to eat human excement in public (Ezekiel 4:12).
Haha, wtf is this shit.
Just how? Why?

this can't be real
Tell me about the Spanish Blue Division, /his/.
How effective were they in battle on the Eastern Front? How were they viewed by their German comrades?
The announcement on June 28, 1941, by the regime of Caudillo Francisco Franco that a division of volunteers would be recruited to join Hitler’s six-day-old invasion of Russia set off a wave of virtual hysteria across Spain. While some mobs stoned the British embassy, others stampeded recruiting offices in such numbers that many met their quota in a day and within in the week they had signed up enough to form several divisions.
The entire cadet corps of Spain’s equivalent of West Point volunteered, as did 3,000 students from the University of Madrid. While the senior...

Many of the young Spaniards who volunteered, the Russo-German War was a continuation of their own Civil War of 1936-1939—a crusade against Communism
To reach the front, the Blue Division made the longest sustained marching effort of World War II—45 days. From August 29 to October 9, 1941, they trudged from Sulvaki, Poland, to Vitebsk, Russia, almost 625 miles, in a column stretching 20 miles, each man lugging 70 pounds of equipment. The division saw its first action just 24 hours after being moved into the line and would soon be engulfed in a military maelstrom.
Did the Romans wiped out the Etruscans to extinction?
No ethnic or cultural group has ever been completely exterminated by force of arms. They were absorbed into a more powerful force that took much of their culture and made it their own.
