keep in mind this happened after Philip IV bullied the previous pope until he killed himself. He was just being a dick and testing the limits of his authority while trying to humiliate the present pope.
>be Philip IV
>burn down Templars
>fuck with all of France's pesty noblemen
>roll over Flemish cities wishing for freedom
>order the shit beaten out of the Pope
>surround yourself with an army of lawyers who justify you taking over all of feudal matters
>create the Estate Generals to have all of the important people licking your ass
>put the wives of your adulterous sons in prison
This man was fucking crazy. He was a GoT-tier villain.
I know it's not old enough, but this is one of the biggest 'fuck you' moments of recent history.
I think so. The whole ordeal of deposing Saddam has really been a big 'accidental' fuck you to Iraq and the region as a whole. Especially after what he did to prevent non-state terrorist groups from operating in his country.
>After the sack of Antioch in 540, Khosrau built a new city near Ctesiphon for the inhabitants he captured. He called this new city Weh Antiok Khusrau or literally, "better than Antioch, Khosrow built this."

that only justifies even more the use of the bombs, they were so bushido'd that even after the total destruction of one of their cities they still wanted war. just imagine how many more military and civilians (only that without the bombs would have been on both sides) would have taken to make the japs surrender.
They redraw districts to influence voting outcomes in the usa a lot.
Say you win a district if you have 50-100% of the votes. Then you could redraw a district that is 90% down to 60%, so you can bring up another district above 50%.
>cut off the hand of the pope
>it was that same hand that blessed you as a bishop thereby nullifying your confirmation
>throw him down the river
>peasants find the corpse and claim that it is performing miracles

It's hilarious how well this back fired on him.

And people think the fucking Germans were cruel
Republicans also want to flood states with Mexicans and out them on welfare slavery in order to reduce the price of labor. That's why they haven't done anything about welfare or immigration on the federal level, and it's what's happening in Europe right now.
Herodotus mentions an Egyptian king who would erect pillars with a carving of a vagina on it at battle-sites that his armies won at, as a symbolic statement that the defeated armies fought like women / pussies.
>corruption is alright since it's probably the reason why a certain demographic I don't like doesn't get to vote.
I agree. 40% of Massachusetts voted for Romney but it is gerrymandered so that all 9 districts are controlled by Democrats- Republicans from Massachusetts have no representation in Congress!
You mean neocons. Actual Republicans wanted Reagan to get the mexicans out in 1980, neocons wanted them here to destroy unions.
>liberals and foreigners don't understand why those districts are gerrymandered
Those districts are all black majority districts. Statistically white people- even white democrats- vote for whites 99% of the time in primary elections. Blacks vote for blacks 99% of the time in primary elections. Hence the only way to ensure black representation in Congress is by putting all of the blacks in one district.
White liberals complain about this because they'd rather have a 95% white Congress controlled by Democrats than give black people a voice.
Texas isn't ruled by mexicans because they aren't citizens yet.
>Hence the only way to ensure black representation in Congress is by putting all of the blacks in one district.
What the fuck are you talking about? That's not at all the case. Gerrymandering is just a means for whatever party controls a state to solidify power. Take Maryland for example. Baltimore's gerrymandered into as much of the state as possible to ensure that the Democrats will always hold a majority.
>Another time, after the Battle of Toulouse, when an aide brought him the news of Napoleon's abdication, he broke into an impromptu flamenco dance, spinning around on his heels and clicking his fingers.
Funny looking districts can arise without shenanigans - say you've got a state with a large coastline, a dense urban area, a wiggly river bordered by farmlands, and a bunch of mountains full of bears and lumberjacks and lube-mining operations.
If you construct the districts to give the farmers, the lube miners, the city slickers, and the coastal dwellers each their own district, you get borders that wiggle all over the fucking place, not straight lines.
(That said, I agree that districting is a fucking huge shenanigan temptation, and there are definitely rotten boroughs in the States... but 'it looks funny' isn't the smoking gun.)
That guy was a fucking legend. For anyone interested in this period of French history i strongly recommend 'The Accursed Kings' by Maurice Druon. Its historical fiction but it generally remains true to the historical aspect and its very interesting
If you start the German-French history in 1871.
But if you add the decade-long French occupation of Germany during Napoleon, the theft of Alsace under Louis XIV, the rape of Germany by France during the 30 Years War...etc, the French and Germans are still far from even despite all that happened between 1871 and 1945.
Basically everything Martialis wrote. Fucker was an absolute legend.

Yes. Saddam posed no threat to the west and ISIS does. You just don't like him because "muh dictatorship" even though secular autocratic rule is what a stable middle eastern society requires. However this idea makes you uncomfortable and you'd much rather believe that culture is simply the food we eat and the holidays we celebrate rather than the deep-running traits and attitudes of a people, and that they can, in fact, be different from ours.
