    Most on the board seem to agree that teaching the "Holocaust" (TM) should be state-mandated. It's just history.

    So how do the same people feel about the murder of 7 million Ukranians by the Soviets? Should that be taught?

    They should teach what the Soviet union was, so many people today have a hardon for communism, they should study its finest example.

    I agree, of course it should be taught. So should the Armenian genocide by the Turks, the genocide of the Hutus in Rwanda, and the near genocide of the American Indian.

    And all the other mass murders, past, present and future.

    Including the mass murders done by Saddam Hussein and his people, that should be taught as well, so people can really see in full what we have accomplished in Iraq.

    Sure. But lets be honest about it, and teach the number of Iraqi civilians that were killed by American troops as well.

    In fact, let's teach our kids honestly about everything.

    The number of civilians doesn't even come close to the numbers massacared by Saddam's goons.

    But if you want to play that way we can, lets talk about the numbers of innocent civilians who died during WW2, oh wait it was a Democratic President so I guess it doesn't count..........

    You're the only one bringing partisan nonsense into this discussion. Of course we should teach how many civilians were killed during WWII.

    Starting with the purge pogroms against the Mensheviks, after the Reds won.

    Then we could move on to how political dissidents and other "undesirables" were conscripted into the Red Army, to be trotted out in front of the Germans armed with little more than broom handles, as a means to run them out of ammo in places like Stalingrad, Moscow and Kursk.

    Moving right along, we could then teach about how nearly no German prisoners ever captured by the Reds made it out of captivity alive. The slave labor gulags, purges of the Ukrainians and the turning of their home into a modern industrial environmental wasteland would be a nice touch.

    But then we'd run into that touchy subject of how much a disaster socialism is in practice....And we can't have any of that.

    Until the Liberals perverted American History into Social Studies the murder of American Indians was always taught in the American School system as was the American slave issue. Now only feel good crap is taught with one class on American History in High School.
