Another badass named Chesty Puller.
He was a retired United States Marine Corps lieutenant general and one of the most decorated members of the Marine Corps. Puller is one of two servicemen (and the only Marine) to ever be awarded five Navy Crosses. He fought guerrillas in Haiti and Nicaragua, and participated in battles of World War II and the Korean War.


Famous for his quotes:

>We're surrounded. That simplifies our problem of getting to these people and killing them."
- November 1950, during Chosin Reservoir campaign
>Where do you put the bayonet on the damn thing?
-upon seeing a flamethrower demonstrated for the first time

Hitler. The hard shelled badass with a heart of gold. Plays by his own rules and all that. Probably the most badass to take on the soviet unnion, all of europe, and the usa at the same time. What would the world be like if he had obtained the first nuke before us? Idk but europe wouldnt be nearly as brown as it is today and the middle east would have an israel to complicate everything

I knew his name is gonna pop up here, but i hardly think of him as a badass. He took advantage of the economical situation Germany was in at the time, and was able to get into power with that.
He was a great motivator as well, in a time when the country needed motivation. He did nothing badass though...

Then we have this beast, and a story.

Ever wonder where the term "Don't kill the messenger." comes from?

Genghis Khan sent a messenger to a city to do the usual gib. "Yo, Khan is here. Surrender your shit or die." (Paraphrasing). Anywho, the leaders of this town decided "nah, and fuck you Mr Messenger".

So they killed the messenger, chopped off his head and threw it over the city wall. Now, Genghis decided to show everyone why he would end up in every history book ever.

He invaded the city, killed every man, woman, child, cow, sheep, cat and anything else living. Burned the entire city to the ground, removed all of the stone and put it far away, scorched the earth and then divided a river so it would run over the earth where the town stood.

Then ordered everyone to tell the story, but not to mention the name of the city or anyone that lived there.

So yeah, don't kill the goddamn messenger.

I have a story for him. The story takes place in 1815, after he had already had his stint as emperor and was exiled to Elba. He escapes with a pitiful army of around a thousand local ragtag sodiers. King Louis XVIII, who had just taken the French throne, sends his royal troops to apprehend him, but when they arrive at a standoff, Napoleon orders his men to lower their weapons. He walks forward, eyeing soldiers in the King's army, who had been under his command only two years before. If asked, he could have recounted their individual names. He stops in the middle of the battlefield and says,

"Soldiers of the Fifth, do you recognize me? If there is anyone among you who wishes to kill your emperor, here I am."

The King's Army screams, "Long live the emperor!" and they rush to his side. As he continues to march northward, the King sends another contingency to push him back, but Napoleon recruits them too. The king retaliates by sending another, larger group of troops down. That's when Napoleon steals the King's army for the third time. After this, Louis receives a letter from Napoleon that says,

"Dear brother, you need not send any more troops. I have enough as it is."

Then he took back France.

After his father died he rebelled against the political stance of his mother, who wanted to strengthen the ties with Leon (aka being subservient), smacked the hoe and later beat her in battle. With the troops he had left, he then proceded to claim most of Portugal's land from the moors and the kingdom of Leon, won the Pope's favour and founded is own country.

on a purely evolutionary survival of the fittest point of view: Genghis Kahn
Given that he increased his fitness (producing living offspring/spreading his genes) to a point that "0.5 percent of the male population in the world, or roughly 16 million descendants [are] living today". http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/02/0214_030214_genghis.html
The fact that only a small percentage of men relative to the percentage of women throughout history were able to carry on their genes makes it even more astonishing (http://www.theguardian.com/science/2014/sep/24/women-men-dna-human-gene-pool)

beatiful just beatiful.
I always liked stories about total anihilation of someones enemies. So i go with 2 guys for this post:
-Hannibal: A genious leader from Carthago in north africa. Led a huge army including war elephants over the sea, from spain over the fucking alps to italy and terorrized it for about 15 years. He was just that good of a tactician that he made the war loving romans fear for their lives in their own territory for 15 years.
-Scipio africanus: A roman badass. After rome had suffered for years under hannibal. They had enough. They survived. They lost the battles but survived (mainly because the dictator Fabius Maximus was smart enough to evade Hannibal; drew always back; kept him at bay; left them empty villages to be raided; made him suffer slowly). Then they just got to carthago. They defeated their army in battle, not standing a chance against the romans without hannibal ( hannibals brother was leading the battle).
Hannibal had to return to carthago to defend the city. But he lost eventually against scipio who had just studied hannibals tactics for years and years, adapting them to the roman stile and thus being able to crush hannibals forces.

Hannibal had to flee; commited suicide wile surounded.
Carthago was taken by the romans. They killed everyone living in it, sparing no one. They burned down the city and all villages and towns, they destroyed every piece of art and literature comming from that place. They burned down the fields and the woods and then salted the earth so that nothing would grow there anymore

if by pretty fucking close you mean not at all. We had writing, timekeeping, world-travelling merchants, historians, and very accurate dating and calendars during these times. To the point that we can date almost to the day any given date from historical evidence- and the practice of dating news and accounts is not anything new - In fact the practice is so old that we know which dates exactly (and in some cases the times) from wars in the second and third centuries B.C. If we can get the fucking time in the morning that Hannibal launched an attack on the Romans, I think it follows that we can date stuff a little bit more accurately than to "within a generation"

The Way of the Samurai is found in death. When it comes to either/or, there is only the quick choice of death. It is not particularly difficult. Be determined and advance. To say that dying without reaching one's aim is to die a dog's death is the frivolous way of sophisticates. When pressed with the choice of life or death, it is not necessary to gain one's aim.
We all want to live. And in large part we make our logic according to what we like. But not having attained our aim and continuing to live is cowardice. This is a thin dangerous line. To die without gaining one's aim is a dog's death and fanaticism. But there is no shame in this. This is the substance of the Way of the Samurai. If by setting one's heart right every morning and evening, one is able to live as though his body were already dead, he gains freedom in the Way. His whole life will be without blame, and he will succeed in his calling. -Yamamoto Tsunetomo

The charge only ended because his ear was shot of. died some years later in a siege when he was shooting down from the castle.

Aristophanes was pretty well known for using real Athenian citizens as characters in his plays. It would be out of character for him to use Socrates if he wasn't a real person. Also, Socrates never did anything supernatural. There is zero reason to need him to be a myth.

I know, but then again it was common at the time to personify a set of ideals as those ideals' "perfect person." I was under the impression that that's what those instances were. Plato blames Aristophenes for slandering Socrates name, therefore getting him killed.

Are you implying real-life Socrates wasn't the personification of Socratic ideals? Also there weren't really ideas like his floating around in the culture. He changed philosophy permanently. There's a reason all philosophy before him is called "Pre-Socratic"

People take what's in that film to be actual fact but it's not even close. The truth is that the Allied High Command covered up how incompetent they knew he was for propaganda purposes. When he began to believe his own hype and disobeyed orders they sent him to Italy with the excuse that he slapped a soldier. It then left to Omar Bradly to clean up his mess and Germans took full advantage. There was going to be an accounting for that, but he was killed by a traffic accident first.

zero reason for him to be a myth other than the potential for martyrdom. Easiest way to get people to love a made up character is to kill him off for standing up for his ideas. Arisophenes seems like pretty damn contemporary evidence to me, though. I'm genuinely happy that Socrates seems to have better evidence for his historicity than Jesus, lol.

Hannibal excelled as a tactician. No battle in history is a finer sample of tactics than Cannae. But he was yet greater in logistics and strategy. No captain ever marched to and fro among so many armies of troops superior to his own numbers and material as fearlessly and skillfully as he. No man ever held his own so long or so ably against such odds

You get personal gratification from believing Jesus didn't exist, therefore you latch onto a tiny number of crackpot pseudo-scholars who support that belief when the overwhelming majority of everyone else who's studied the issue, Christian or not accepts his existence.

I want the whole world to know that ISIS has nothing to do with Muslims or Arabs. I want the world to know that ISIS is nothing but a westernized fabrications to make people in the Middle East look bad.

based teddy, have a quote

“I like to have the man who as a citizen feels, when a wrong is done to the community by any one, when there is an exhibition of corruption or betrayal of trust, or demagogy or violence, or brutality, not that he is shocked and horrified and would like to go home; but I want to have him feel the determination to put the wrong-doer down, to make the man who does wrong aware that the decent man is not only his superior in decency, but his superior in strength.” -TR

>>571513414
I see your point.
But the evidence we have for the existence of Socrates comes from more than the writings put forward by his "students". In fact, those writings probably do more for the appraisal of his character and, to a certain degree, his ideology, even though they cannot account for these beyond any doubt.
There were writings about him by contemporaries and many people who knew him personally, though we only know of these through other texts that reference those texts that have since been lost.
In any case, historical exactitude was not of their utmost concern; at least, not to the exactitude we have come to expect today.

I don't know what you have studied, but most of the resources for New Testament studies are horrible. I mean there is probably have been more studies done to find out if Moses existed compared to Jesus. Then again, I never majored in it or anything, perhaps there are a few scholars who are producing good New Testament research.

Otherwise I applaud you admitting defeat in regards to Socrates. A thousand years from now people like you will be denying the existence of World War II because Churchill didn't publish his memoirs until after the fact.
