Yes indeed wiki is goodies!
Looking for a little more depth too.
I should explain a bit more. Back in 1991 we’d purchased a defective product. The company rep came out and took care of it. He saw a newspaper and a story about Yugoslavia. He commented his brother had went to the war zone to help with “ethnic cleansing” last week and he would be joining him next week.
I want to understand how that mess got so bitter. Why would folks willingly leave a safe haven and go jump into the middle of an inferno?
along the lines of “Your great-great-great grandfather killed my great-great-great grandfather and raped his wife so I’m gonna carve you up and feed the pieces to the crows you ugly bastard”
No wonder they go at it with such energy …
Unfortunately this is the basis for most of the world conflicts…long long time a go,in a galaxy far far away,your grandpa,king,emperor, great great great something done that to my bla bla bla,or stole my land,candy,best Teddy bear…
and then there is the other type of conflict based on: You got something that I want, give it here you stupid bugger before I bash your head in.
War as a large scale armed robbery, often disguised behind some ethnic/religious/historic grievance …
I don’t agree…that is not an other type is just how the things start…i don’t bash your grandpa only because I don’t like it’s ugly face…at the start there’s allways something I want,land,oil,power,popularity or your sexy brother …no body move a army to sing “girl just wanna have fun “ on the Champs Élysées…also religion it’s about power
Memories seem to last forever overthere… Take Kosovo: the Serbs considdered it as rightfull theirs, as they fought a battle against the Ottomans there… The fact that they lost, seems lost on them … They fought there, so it is theirs…
I think you will be very hardpressed to find anything remotely resembling an objective reporting or documentary.
Every side, be that political, ethnical, religious, ideological or even media, had their own angle and pushed their narrative. Some more vigorous then others.
Look for different sources, read up and come to your own conclusions, is my advice. I am in the process myself. And it is a mess.
Edit; I now see this is a months old post? Why does it pop up as being “new” or “latest”??
Once the new topics or updated topics exhaust at the bottom of the feed older topics cycle into the rotation. I like that to a degree because it’s brought several good topics to my attention I’d missed when they were new.
Ironically one of my old topics about MiniCraft Rotary Tools popped up in the feed that’s about eight months old.
I lost interest in the topic when the planned Croatian T-34-85 build ran into issues. My primary reference for the T-34-85 disappeared from the shelf, the spare Verlinden .50 cal MG for the model went missing & likewise with decal sheet with Croatian markings. I seldom loose items but went 3 out of 3.
My quick look around the web could only find a replacement copy for like $35 which seemed a little too expensive to me.
Old topics popping up as new.
The list of latest posts shows the latest for al of Kitmaker, all of Armorama, all of a subcategory insida Armorama.
If you view a new post in General Discussions there will be a list of other “latest” posts that are the latest in General Discussions. If there is low turnover in a forum/category/subcategory the “latest” post may be several months old.
Any list of the 10 or 15 latest posts will contain just that, if there is only two posts per year the list will contain posts that are between 5 and 7.5 years old
