    Do all countries rank them the same, or are we going with just leaders?

    I don't think so, that is why I went with the greatest military leader I could think of.

    Well, if we're going all-time, it's hard to go against Ceasar. More recent times, it's hard to go against Hitler. I don't agree with Hitler and please don't anyone take this the wrong way, but to convince an entire nation of that scam was incredible. He basically brainwashed millions, so even though he lost the war, his mind games could be learned from.

    Probably not the greatest all-time but South Africa's Shaka Zuku was a pretty canny war leader. Turned a small, isolated tribe into the dominant fighting force in the country. The Zulus later won battles against white armies with guns using his tactics.

    To answer my own question, best freestyle wrestler: With Gatsalov going down it's either Makhov or Kudukhov. Makhov is less likely to lose IMO but Kudukhov is the more technical wrestler.

    Masses get duped into crazy and absurd ideas almost on a daily basis. With enough fear and social unrest, people can be duped into believing anything.

    Sorry to disagree with you. But if the farce wasnt started nobody would have to take a side. I guess I should say man made global warming because we all know that the earth goes through natural heating and cooling cycles.

    The outcome would have been quite different had Hitler not opened up the eastern front. Had he focused on the UK, he would have removed any launching point for an allied push into Europe. By virtue of those two gross errors Hitler can classified a horrible general..technically he wasn't a general either.

    Sun Tzu , 500 years or so b.c. His theories on battle are studied today at the war college. Patton adopted his theories and tactics including his well known pincer attack.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
