Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well, we know that's bullshit  

I don't think one can even imagine how much of the history ,as we know it, is actually bullshit...And I am sure a lot...at least  from the history I had to witness through my time and what actually has been written in those history books about it...
They say rightly "Winners write history" ...who ever they are...
I wonder what American children are learning about Vietnam war from their history books? No matter that they lost that specific war ...but they are winners in greater sense. What Vietnam's children learn about that war? Is there Universal truth???
I have heard that American ambassador in Serbia (or so) criticized Serbian history books that are telling children about NATO AGGRESSION 1999 on Serbia. He would like to find better word for it, ha-ha. But Serbian children know even without books how that felt when bombs have fallen in their neighborhood ...and killed their loved once. My daughters primary school teacher (and sport trainer) has died amongst others... Some of their school friends went crazy or sick after being drafted to the army...Your ancestors are going to tell you history as it happened. You just need to listen...

Try telling a "Great Patriotic War" Russian veteran that America saved Europe's ass during WWII...
You'll learn the relativity of History.

Well yes...that's what I was talking about...truth have more then one side. I wouldn't say purely that "America saved Europe's ass" (maybe just Western Europe's ass from communism, ha-ha) but I would prefer to say that USA helped greatly to defeat Hitler. Bear in mind that more then 20 million of Russians have died in WWII...
