      Colonel Summers' widely quoted critique of US strategy in the Vietnam War is having a modest vogue...it is poor history, poor strategy, and poor Clausewitz to boot - Robet Komer, Survival, 27:2, p. 94.

          You know, you can never think of these things when called upon to do so.

          il Postino (Italian)
          Indochine (French)
          How I started WWII (polish)

          For comedies I like Roberto Begnini films.

                  Hmmm:

                  Downfall - Good docudrama.

                  Da Boot - Sub flicks have to do pretty bad to get me to hate them.

                  Akira - I'm not an anime fan but Akira and Ghost in the Shell were good despite)

                  Asoka - An Indian film. Although it does insert a little bit of Chinese style exxagerated martial arts and has musical numbers (what kind of war movie has musical numbers?) Good for it's budget.
                  A new life awaits you in the off world colonies; the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!
