>reminder that this chick right here, the wet dream of many an American GI, left her film career to marry into the lineage of Fatima bint Muhammad (also the spawn of the Assassins), joined her husband (the son of an imam) in helping his horse racing enterprise, almost converted to Islam for him, then divorced him
Not hating at all, just musing on the surreal nature of the imamate.
Anyone here know anything beyond Wikipedia about these guys? Betwen film-star wives and the Assassins, they seem to have a pretty bad-ass history to tell you the truth.
I know she has Spanish descent.
I have a fetish for Latinas (me being half Puerto Rican probably factors in), and I always wondered why she looked so exceptionally sultry and sensual to me out of all the old pin-ups until I looked her up one day for kicks... there have been several times when I was particularly attracted to someone over others that should have been hotter than them and I later found out their parents or grandparents were of Spanish descent, so I think the fetish is inborn in by genes lol
>they seem to have a pretty bad-ass history to tell you the truth
Thats nothing compared to their predecessors whom ended up doing more damage to islam with their rampage across the ME than the crusaders and christfags ever wished they could have.
Just finished this book. Makes me want to vomit at the thought of the British Empire as some kind of civilizatory force.
How legit is this work?

Literally never did a morally wrong thing.
I'm looking for philosophical works on the origin of logic.
There seem to be a lot of works on the application of logic in philosophy, rationalism vs empiricism etc. But I'm unable to find anything on the origin of logic or anyone who questions logic or the ratio as a system. The closest to what I think I'm trying to get at seems to be Hume. Carnap and others like him turn up when I try to look for this stuff but they seem to be content with logic as a system and just want to prove it's importance.
Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, I'm...

It works because the implications are already inside the meaning of the axioms.
Why did saddam gas kurds and invade kuwait?
What did he meme by this?
Is this a result of all the social constructs that we live in shaping our world?
Or is this more of a case of people saying things and presenting them as fact I;e The jews caused 9/11 and I can't understand the science behind it therefore it must be true.
Or is it something else all together

Judas comes to mind (if Gospels were real to begin with)
So does Brutus.
Nixon and Kissinger for ruining the '68 peace-talks through promising South Vietnam they'd get a better treaty once the Republicans had the white house
War drags on for 5 more years, eventually US and SV have to settle for a worse peace treaty than they would've got in '68
How useful were swords in warfare?
Were they side arms which were used only in case of emergency, or were there any situations were swords were more useful than other weapons?
You hold one end, you either chop with the other end or poke it in someone.
They're really useful in pursuit, but not really for the charge or grind.
Outdated by rapid fire muskets in modern drill ("Prussian" drill) armies.
>How useful were swords in warfare?
Depends on the era. Spears and Bows always trumped the Sword. Then again, some empires and cultures used it more effectively than others. It wasn't always just a side arm.
How many failures and suffering is it going to take before communists admit their system is shit?
They will never admit it. Just now there was a guy saying the holomodor was capitalism's fault in some thread out there.
You have to understand that commies think they have a higher moral ground. Their entire personality is based on that. It's not easy to let this go.
What does /his/ think of the Satanic Verses?
Can any of you read this Greek? It's from a little pendant that I couldn't get a good picture of.
Shitty pictures of the pendant if that helps
What would the world be like today if nukes were never invented. What would change in our history?
What makes you say that? I would think far more likely is you'd have a massive conventional buildup by the west in Germany; and then a rough balance being maintained. The Soviets can't compete with the manpower and industrial resources of the West, but the West won't want to go to the expense and the multiple millions of people that would die to take out the USSR. Stable.
Between NATO and the USSR, you mean. Even Operation Unthinkable was planned as a joint effort.
The real shit, though, would've been Operation Downfall. A conventional invasion of the Japanese home islands would've been horrific for everyone involved. The sheer slaughter, on both sides, would've rivaled the Eastern Front, and would've scarred US/Japanese relations for decades and perhaps even centuries, assuming there was even...
