  1. The world is in total denial if it believes the Geneva Convention helped anyone. My Gramps was a medic in WW2 and had gone AWOL-due to heavy drinking and waking up in France somewhere in a ditch(oops 😆)..then later rescued after floating 3 days in the ocean by a german POW hospital ship. He said the german soldiers and other pows he doctored were just like us Canadians. However almost all lead officers on every side were inhuman. I was always amazed he helped opposite sides as a POW or not. They gave him a medic position only because he came from Farm work and had experience with surgical stuff on animals prior. Even though he only had a grade 6 education. He only talked to me about events from the war. Never anyone else. Some of the stuff he had to do isnt anything u can even imagine.
    Even though Ive NEVER agreed with wars, I have so much respect for the soldiers and officers that were good people. Sadly, many turn into sick, insane soldiers.

  2. From what history tells us, the u.s. army treats it's prisoners the worst. Imagine working for an army that held captive 2-6 million (amount uncertain)German POWs AFTER the war withholding food and water until they perished.
    Think twice before you surrender.

  3. It's insane because I can always in my dream state, imagine fighting in the war but everything stops at the point when you say I've been captured and I'm POW… My mind can no longer comprehend what these people could have possibly gone though

    *but now what I've listened to about their interrogation techniques sounds like it was the REED technique.. And that has been mostly acknowledged and outlawed through most American states and other countries as being an illegal way to interrogate people.

  4. My great uncle was a POW in South Asia. He said the problem was his captors didn't have humanistic qualities therefore many POW's suffered. He believed that the reason mostly lay with the native religions that didn't promote 'good will' to all humans. I guess the CCP is a current example of that.

  5. Almost 40 years ago I went thru US Navy SERE school. It was Survival Evasion Resistance and Escape. It was brutal. I was only 18 years old and had never experienced such things, being physically and mentally beaten, confined to a box that I barely fit in and finally sleep/food deprived. I had a cadre dry fire a .38 revolver between my eyes until I wet myself. I was water boarded just to find out my mother’s maiden name, which I DIDN’T KNOW! Anyone who says water boarding isn’t pure horrible torture has never had it done to them. I had nightmares for weeks after but it was worth it! It helped make me the person I am today. I know when the chips are down I will survive.

  6. stonehenge was erected in the 1920's and the stones were not laid out in a circle its well documented proving its fake like most of british history.

    most likely the stones were building foundations as they were found flat on the ground and scattered certainly NOT as they are now since the 1920's
