Very well. Then let's count the number off different people in this thread.

Previously, when I was not a participant in this thread, there was but one, you. And as you were the only person in the thread, you clearly are the only oen to have said MFW at the time.

Such a common yet silly misconception my friend.
The entire group of comments you are referring to is not the thread, it is the comment section or whatever you wish to call it.
The threads are showed by the pretty purple lines and are seperated by them.

If you are the kind of guy that can't get stuff done and rely on the government to finance your pathetic life.

It sure is perfect.

At least in Norway a hard working citizen doesn't get screwed over by the government, and denied health care because they can't afford necessary, life saving surgery.
Where you come from, the poor probably stay poor for all eternity, instead of helped up and out of that situation. It sure is perfect.

Wikipedia actually says Finland had 337,000 346,500 men whereas soviet union had 425,640–760,578 men, 998,100 men (overall), Which is still a great difference but maybe not as much as that picture says
#464 to #417 - polpoldk (01/12/2013) [-]
while i do agree that the finish fought hard and brave in this war. the numbers aren't relay comparable.... the finish army was made of highly trained soldiers, while the soviet soldiers were conscripts who barley fired with a gun before they were sent in to battle.
ps. your later alliance with Hitler probably isn't something to be proud of either, just saying.
User avatar #561 to #464 - noonesperfect (01/12/2013) [-]
well, it was the only thing to be done to prevent soviet from invading, and besides en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lapland_War
#596 to #561 - polpoldk (01/12/2013) [-]
no offense, but did you read about the Moscow Armistice that, in your article, is named as the main reason for the fight against Germany ? Finland had given up in 1944 when the USSR started advancing and Finland couldn't relay on Germany to occupy the USSR at Leningrad. Finland started fighting Germany because otherwise it would have lead to a USSR invasion of Finland.

and would you plz elaborate why the USSR would have invaded Finland after the Winter war showed that the red-army had huge difficulty fighting in Finland ?
User avatar #616 to #596 - noonesperfect (01/12/2013) [-]
umm.. no i just meant that our truce/alliance didnt last because we wanted to surrender but germany didnt want to, its quite a trick cuz our president promised that we wouldnt give in, then he left as president and we signed a truce with soviet. The lapland war was most just that finland drove germany out
#621 to #616 - polpoldk (01/12/2013) [-]
i guess we can conclude that politicians have been full of **** all through history :)
User avatar #485 to #464 - oux (01/12/2013) [-]
Quite the contrary actully, most of the finnish soldiers had no military training what so ever and were badly equipped. The diffrence was that the finns knew the land in and out and had something to fight for!
#421 to #417 - anon (01/12/2013) [-]
We probably could. look up "war of 1812" where canada defeated the USA Army and then proceeded to burn the US Capital Washington to the ground.

Ps. you should totally move to canada some point in your life, everyone's real friendly.
User avatar #430 to #421 - noonesperfect (01/12/2013) [-]
quite impressive, but there didnt seem to be a huge difference in numbers there. Im just pointing out that under the winter war Finland was outnumberer 250k to 1,5m :b
#602 to #430 - polpoldk (01/12/2013) [-]
actually as fucedbyapony pointed out the picture is ******* , the real numbers were 425,640–760,578 men, 998,100 men.

As the vietnamese proved against the americans. you don't need to be militarily stronger than your enemy to win, you just need to kill enough of their soldiers so they give up.
User avatar #352 to #336 - alfjnn (01/12/2013) [-]
Vietnamese were well equipped to deal with the Americans, and received training and support from the Soviet Union.

Not like the vietnamese did it on their own.
#399 to #352 - anon (01/12/2013) [-]
Just ask the marines who were at khe sahn getting pounded by NVA artillery shells and rockets all day.
#369 to #352 - elchimpanc (01/12/2013) [-]
well equiped? seriously

get your history straight, they got weapons allright, but they got it from china
of the steel of terrible quality that they overproduced and couldn't get rid of.

btw, soviet union dropped out of it 1 year after the war started, first of all because they had a non-attacking pact with the USA and the second reason was because they were argueing with china about it.

not much training was done by russians, russians had only granted scientist, to help produce weapons, china only interfered once or twice in the whole war because the allied forces came to close to their front.

so lets get this summed up, the vietnamese had inferior weapons, they were outnumbered with about 3 capitalist to 1 communist. Most of them were farmers before the war started, all the troops from the allied forces were real soldiers.

so vietnamese just managed to take you down by supreme tactics and knowledge of the landscape. + usa didn't do a background check of the leader of south-vietnam, the people weren't really fond of him anymore, so the desertion rate was higher ;) that's all, sorry for the long read ;p
#395 to #369 - anon (01/12/2013) [-]
Vietnam is on of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted wars in history. its probably too complicated to explain on comments thread.
#396 to #395 - elchimpanc (01/12/2013) [-]
yeah but i tried to make a brief summary ;)

It's important to remember the American media's impact on the war too.
From a strictly number standpoint, you might think the Americans were winning.

From the perspective of health care, standard of living, freedom index, crime rates and wealth distribution. Pretty much everything that matters to the ordinary man.
#340 to #330 - anon (01/12/2013) [-]
Meh. Despite lack of health care i'd probably prefer to live in the USA than any of the nordic countries. when i visited the USA it seemed more fun due to all the crazy **** going on there.

It's one of the only countries higher than Australia. #OPsabotageNorway
