The Sino-Vietnamese War: The Forgotten Vietnam War
Topic: History

Many have heard of the French-Indochina War; which culminated in a French defeat, and the end of French colonial power in Vietnam in 1954.  Many more are probably familiar with the Vietnam War, especially in the United States.  This war involved North Vietnam and America and ended in 1975 with a North Vietnamese victory; and the unification of the nation under Communist control.  What many in America and elsewhere do not know is that there was another "Vietnam War" later in the 20th Century:  The Sino-Vietnamese War of 1979!

 

The conflict was a result of a split between Communist allies China and the Soviet Union.  China backed Cambodia, while the Soviets supported Vietnam.   When Vietnam went to war with Cambodia, China invaded northern Vietnam on February 17, 1979.  After tens of thousands of casualties on both sides, and with Chinese forces facing the same determined resistance that American soldiers had faced earlier, the Chinese withdrew less than a month later.  Click the image below to watch a documentary on the war:

Pakistan vs. India: Who Would Win A Conventional War?
Topic: Military


Since their partition into separate countries, Pakistan and India have shared a very contentious history.  Fighting a number of wars in the 20th Century -- with the most recent being The Kargil War of 1999 -- the two longstanding enemies share what has been called the most dangerous border in the world.  Military enthusiasts have often discussed what a modern conventional war between them would look like.  Binkov's Battlefields creates war simulations, and this is one of the conflicts the channel has featured.  Click The Photo Below To Watch:

Sign Petition To Impeach Trump
Topic: Politics


If you are one of the millions of Americans who believes that the time has come to end the Trump Presidency, you can make your voice heard NOW!  If you question Donald Trump's mental fitness to hold office; are tired of Trump's almost daily scandals; upset by his use of the Oval Office as a bully pulpit for lies and attacks; his attacks on the free press; his support for White supremacists; the rollbacks of environmental protections; his response to disasters; and his involvement and relationship with the Russians...LET YOUR FEELINGS BE KNOWN.

Eminem Undresses Trump In Political Cypher
Topic: Music

The Battle of Isandlwana
Topic: History


The British, with the imperialistic goal of increasing England's exploitable territory in Africa, set their sights on South Africa.  This brought the British Empire into direct confrontation with the Zulu Kingdom.  In 1879, the British invaded Zululand and this initiated the Anglo-Zulu War.  Eleven days into their invasion the British force had their first major battle with the Zulus, on January 22, 1879 at a place called Isandlwana (Isandhlwana).

The British Army had fought other armies in Africa.  They had usually employed guerrilla ambush and hit-and-run tactics.  The British expected the same from the Zulus.  However, the Zulus had been militarized under the great king Shaka.  Everything from training to weaponry had been reformed, all with the goal of dominating enemies in major battles. The British would learn the differences between the Zulus and other foes at Isandwana

A movie. "Zulu Dawn," gives a look at what transpired.  CLICK THE IMAGE BELOW TO WATCH THE FULL MOVIE:

 

 



The result of the battle was the greatest defeat of the British Empire by a native army EVER!!!  What followed was the failure of Britain's invasion of Zululand, and a retreat by British forces.  In future clashes the British Army learned to classify Zulu infantry as "Light Cavalry" due to their speed, stamina, and distances covered when "running" to battle -- STILL BEING READY TO FIGHT UPON ARRIVAL!
