You looked up slowly at the crimson sunset, rays of light shining across a ring of children opposite her.
“You want your teddy back?” The tallest boy jeered at a small boy with red hair kneeling in the middle of them helplessly.
“Please...” the boy began reaching up feebly trying to reach the stuffed bear being tightly gripped above his head.
The boy pulled the bear higher as the others chuckled “What was that, freak?” he cooed as tears started to stream down the helpless child’s face.
“Cry baby!” another boy giggled
“Cry baby, cry baby!” They chanted together laughing
“Boys!” A woman’s voice yelled angrily causing the laughter to stop
“M-Mum!” The tall boy exclaimed with wide eyes causing you to smile
‘Busted’ you thought to yourself as the angry woman charged up to the group of boys.
“What are you doing?” she hissed at them “That boy is dangerous”

“A couple more hours and we’ll be there” he chuckled standing up straight and looking into the distance.
Your mother smiled “maybe we should let the horse rest a while; he has been carrying our burdens for hours”
“Nonsense!” He exclaimed “Misty still has some walk left in her, don’t you girl?” he said smacking the horse on the side as Misty the horse just collapsed to the ground causing them all to frown.

Preparing the Defenses
On June 22, 1940 Britain was now only the country standing against the Germans after the surrender of France. Still British Prime Minister Winston Churchill would not consider defeat and raised the unity of his country in a speech over the radio where he stated that the British people would defend their island no matter the cost. Britain still had all the resources of its enormous empire. Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Egypt, and a series of other nations from Britain's colonies and commonwealth all declared war on Germany, but they were thousands of miles away across the oceans and their military power would be difficult to bring to support the mother country. Adolf Hitler, the German dictator, believed that Britain would quickly accept any peace terms.
Hitler entered the the German parliament (the Reichstag) and made a peace treaty to give to Britain. His offer was for Britain to keep its entire empire and virtually walk free so he could h

She walks to school with the lunch she packed
Nobody knows what she's holdin' back
Wearin' the same dress she wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with linen and lace...
The girl was only in grade school, but she had seen more pain than most people in their seventies. With long dark hair and big, expressive green eyes, she was small and cute for her age.
Her name was Sarah Michelle Lawrence of 216 Mountain Lane, and she was six years old.
Skulking quietly past her mothers room, she slipped outside and walked to school. How she feared and despised that woman. Betty Lawrence was a cruel woman, prone to fits of unimaginable anger and rage, almost always resulting in some new bruises on her young daughter. The latest ones were on her arm, in the shape of the very fingers that had held her down as she was beaten.
Her only comfort was the small red LEGO Bionicle figurine that she had gotten as a Secret Sant

The United States Strikes Back
On April 18, 1942, exactly four months after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the Americans struck back. US bombers dropped bombs on the Japanese capital, Tokyo. Some were even close to the emperor's palace. Many other Japanese cities weee bombed as well. The raid was ordered by President Roosevelt and it was actually a very dangerous operation. Roosevelt had ordered two of the US Pacific Fleet's aircraft carriers, the USS Hornet and USS Enterprise, to get within 700 miles from Japan. The American B-25 Mitchell Bombers had not been designed to be launched from aircraft carriers. They barely managed to take off from the decks of the carriers.
Nevertheless, the American bombers still made it to Japan and the raids caused enormous shock. Japan's military planners now thought it would be a good idea to extend the island's defenses. They thought that if they could seize additional strategic islands in the Pacific Ocean they would be able to attack Allied f

When I was little I did not care,
For the thousands of you struggling out there,
So here is to you,
You beautiful souls.
When I was little I did not know
In your world full of nightmares you continue to grow.
When I was little I did not see
Such trembling lips as they uttered your plea.
When I was little I could not believe
How you kept on struggling on days we didn't grieve?
When I was little how could I have known
Your contagious laughter was a sight to behold.
When I was little I would never have guessed
That with such delicate wings you have been blessed.
When I was little I could not feel
How much your weak smiles really reveal .
So tell me, my child, how do you strive
To live each day just to survive.
Your innocent strides will take you far
For in Gods eyes you are the star.
So soar to the heavens with your fragile soul
And there before the gates we will count your toll.
Because when I was little I didn't dare to dwell

In blizzard or storm,
Or in sun warm and bright,
The day hot as hell
Or bone-chilling be the night,
Our faces may with dust be laid,
But spirits never fade,
No, never fade;
Relentless, our tank
Thunders out on a raid.
With engines a-howling,
Fast as is the wind,
We head for the foe,
Safe, as we're in armor skinned.
Our comrades still behind us roam;
We fight the foe alone,
Yes, fight alone.
We stab through the line
To break the foes backbone.
Whenever the foe
May appear in our sight,
We'll ram throttle full,
Then we'll humble all his might!
Of what use is our life if we
Our country serve freely?
Yes, serve freely!
To die for our country,
Our honour shall be.
With tank traps and mines,
Our foe tries to impede.
We laugh at his ruses;
We know he'll not suceed.
And when, in threat, his cannons stand,
Half hidden in the sand,
Yes, in the sand,
We can find our way
Over much safer land.
And should at long last,
Fickle Lady Luck leave,
And we remain here,
Leaving family to grieve,

I sit with you on the deck of our house.
We cuddle from time to time,
Enjoying the scenery.
Birds sing, squirrels run up and down trees.
More than once we kiss deeply.
The phone rings, I go inside to answer it.
I told you to stay there do not move.
You smile at me with the gorgeous of smiles.
As I got off the phone,
I walked up to you slowly.
I once again sat next to you; my heart is bursting into tears.
I whisper in your ear, the news I got from the phone.
Your eyes water as you heard the news.
A few days later.
I pack for Afghanistan; you came to me hugging me tight.
You were wishing for me not to go. But I have to.
Your eyes begin water; I can't stand the fact of your crying.
When you cry I have to sometimes give in. Because I hate seeing a woman cry.
I shook my head and said to you gently.
This is what I have to do, I have to protect others.
You smile and kissed me on the cheek.
We drive to the airport where I head to Afghanistan.

My teeth flash in the night, my own eyes shining: anticipating.

A silent question is asked... Will he live past midnight?
He doesn't know... the Reaper's already signed the man's death warrant.
He closes his eyes for a second, opened and there I am,

The smell of fear just leaked into the air.

He knows his prayers to his deity will not be met... God has turned away.

13. Han Dynasty Civil War - Prime Minister Cao Cao (China)
This one ranks in last because the commander, Prime Minister Cao Cao was convinced to do something bad by a spy. However, it still makes on the list because what this commander did goes against common sense. Prime Minister Cao Cao was leading his Han forces to protect the dynasty from rebels. His 220,000 troops forced the rebels back but then they retreated to ships. The prime minister's army was not well experienced in sea warfare and then a spy is sent from the rebels to act as an adviser and to tell the prime minister that the best way to keep his soldiers well ready to fight would be to chain all of his ships together to avoid sea sickness. The rebels swiftly defeated
Napoleon: Start of an EmpireNapoleon: Start of an Empire4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
France was in turmoil in 1789. Commoners demanded political rights and an end to the aristocrat and church privileges. This erupted into a revolution that would end a powerful abseloute monarchy and kill tens of thousands of people including France's King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette. By 1792 France had been declared a republic, which it remained until 1804 after chaos by extremists in the government. It was around that time that a phoenix rose to power. Napoleon Bonaparte, a major general in the military, rose to become Emperor of France.
Once again France was an abseloute monarchy. Unlike the old monarchy, Napoleon gave the French people more reforms to preserve the revolution and his enourmous fame allowed him to stay as the monarch. His laws, known was the Napoleonic Code, were very popular with the people. In addition, he was a terrific military tactician. Napoleon was born on the island of Corisca in 1769 and was sent to France as a young boy to a military school. When he
The Guidelines Of WarWritten about the firsthand accounts of Navy SEAL Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell during Operation Redwing in Afghanistan on 28 June 2005, showing the uselessness of the Geneva Conventions when the opposing force do not take after the Conventions themselves. Three of the four Navy SEALs on his team were killed in action due to the vote on letting three goat-herders go, instead of killing them, after they were discovered. The choice was based on the fear of the liberal media labeling them as murderers and resulting in imprisonment of four of our finest service-members; the choice got MOH-recipient Michael P. Murphy and Navy Cross recipients Matthew Axelson and Danny Dietz killed. Luttrell was also awarded the Navy Cross for selflessness in the line of combat.The Guidelines Of War5 years ago in Settings More Like This

On July 4, 1778 it is the second anniversary of the declaration of independence. For the soldiers it is a day of celebration and for General George Washington a new time of confidence after the Battle of Monmouth when the American troops held their ground a battle that led to a draw. After Monmouth British General Henry Clinton took his army back to their base at New York City. The Continental Congress returned into session in Philadelphia and on July 4th a big celebration of Philadelphia's high society happened. Congressman, statesman, military officials, and wealthy merchants are still in attendance including the new military governor of the rebel capital, Benedict Arnold. Arnold was born into a prominent Connecticut family but his drunken father destroyed the family fortune. Arnold captured Fort Ticonderoga from the British in 1775 but the credit was passed over to the frontiersman Ethan Allen. He fought at the Battle of Saratoga in 1777 and won the fight against the

The Zulu WarThe Zulu War4 years ago in Settings More Like This
In the late 1870s the British decided to consolidate all their possessions in southern Africa in one federation. Throughout the decades, the British had built and controlled large colonies in Africa that were part of their empire. Now with the opportunity for even more expansion, Sir Bartle Frere, high commissioner in Cape Town in British South Africa prepared to expand. East of British South Africa was Zululand. Zululand was a kingdom where Native African people lived. Their warriors mainly had spears and shields. His ultimatum to Cetshwayo, the Zulu king, provoked war. The British military commander, Lord Chelmsford led a substantial armed expedition into Zululand. He then divided his forces, leaving the veteran troops of the 1st Battalion of the 24 Regiment at an unfortified camp at Isandlwana. Scouting parties failed to establish the strength of the Zulus, some of whom had rifles.

Merc Vs. SOFIn the last few months I have heard and seen a very deluded idea that's been formed over the last 40-years, maybe even 50-years, since the 1960s. Common sense in not used by these people, who simply believe that all that fight as "mercenaries" would only "fight for the highest bidder". This is inaccurate, for the fact that many of the adventurers, when it started heavily in Africa in particular, who have been inaccurately described as mercenaries but were in fact ideologically motivated to support particular governments. Those men took sides.Merc Vs. SOF4 years ago in Settings More Like This
There is a very serious line separating the usual mercenary from men that are called "soldiers of fortune". Men who didn't do the job solely for money or fight for any particular power, but did the job for adventure and sometimes even to help those on the battlegrounds who were innocents, and had nothing to do with the conflicts. The term "mercenary", by definition, is "somebody who will serve in any army in which there is profit". Which ma
