I saw this one a while ago and it's probably one of the best anti-war movies around.
One day the 'rain' will come and wash all the scum off the streets
A groundbreaking documentary about 911 which chiefly covers the Pentagon evidence of conspiracy as well as that at the World Trade Center. Brilliantly done with an excellent soundtrack which keeps the video moving along a quick yet well paced and documented pace. Part 1 of 1. The entire Documentary is here, and in a higher quality than is available elsewhere on the Internet. Probably the most watched 911 Documentary done on 911, seen by perhaps as many as 50 MILLION people worldwide. Has shown on National TV stations in over a dozen different countries! Our great nation in is dire danger, so please make sure you post this video on your websites and blogs and help spread the word that 911 was an inside job, and a conspiracy of significant proportions, and we, as Americans need to stand up and fight the terrible lies and injustice of 911 as well as demand those truly responsible be held accountable, arrested, tried and convicted. Our very Freedoms depend on this!
Here's a pretty good movie. I actually watched it all and it leaves an impression. And all the reviews I've read are also quite good. Highly recommended.
Mirage - Macedonian movie (with English subtitles)
There's a brief moment when Svetozar Ristovski's "Mirage: A Boy's Hope in a Land of Broken Dreams" looks as if it's going to be a Macedonian version of one of those American teacher-as-hero stories: a student at risk is urged on by a sensitive educator, beats the odds and wins the spelling bee or college scholarship or whatever. But Macedonia is not the United States, and "Mirage" is no feel-good fable. It's a grim look at the life of one boy in a country that, at least in Mr. Ristovski's view, seems to have nothing but grimness to offer. Mr. Ristovski's story (written with Grace Lea Troje) feels a bit underdeveloped, but the film, full of racist and misogynistic dialogue and bluntly proclaiming that hope is for suckers, opens an unnerving window on a Balkan country that was near civil war in 2001 and may still be simmering.
Hundred of years ago, the forces of light and darkness faced each other in a very violent battle on a bridge. In order to avoid the total slaughter, their leaders agree to have an armistice. Along the centuries, the two balanced sides are divided and the forces of light watch and control the vampires, a.k.a. as the forces of night. Among the humans lives "The Others", i.e., persons with supernatural powers including witches, sorcerers and vampires and with the free will to choose which side to join. The legend says that the two forces will be unbalanced by "The Great Other", and the side this powerful being selects will win the battle. In 1992, in Moscow, Anton Gorodetsky joins the forces of the light while hiring a witch for a black magic. In the present days, he faces the consequences of his act.

Nice post stefan. Even without subtitles, the images spoke volumes. One of the better docs I've seen on WWI. In the US virtually nothing is mentioned of that time regarding what was happening in Serba or true Serbia history. Except that all you guys are anarchists and assasins
TsarSamuil: Medicines aren't allowed to be sold on the market without a 15 year trial period, to determine short n long term effects. Sputnik just turned 1 year, others not even that, just months, how can we determine long term effects without the data from long term

TsarSamuil: exposure? Does anyone have a time machine to go 14 years or so into the future n come back n say whether we have good vaccines? Fear makes world abandon its own standards..Besides, vaccines for other illnesses that have been developed for YEARS actually
Aug 24, 2021 11:23:40 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: help. These covid vaccines are literally SHIT, why else do they demand you take 1, 2 n now 3 shots? The problem is also a disease becomes resilient if u administer a weak vaccine that doesn't do the job proper. Allow illness to survive just makes it strong
Aug 24, 2021 11:25:04 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: instead if we go by the book, we should all wait for a really good vaccine to take out the illness for good. Now...we may never get rid of it..but understandably the world economy has a hard time dealing with lock downs, but that is just needless panic
Aug 24, 2021 11:27:06 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: why Swe had fared well with country not being locked down? Because they are cold people, keeping distance was the thing before covid-19 was ever heard of, I hope world doesn't become like that, but some could use a little common sense n change in behavior.

TsarSamuil: It's no wonder covid hits so many Arabs in the country, stupid bastards..
Aug 24, 2021 11:29:38 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: If I go to H&M a new shirt, if an Arab wants to buy a pair of pants, not only is his whole family along, his friends, even his freaking grandmother is along n all chattering along in a big dumb group of ignorance..

Boro: Thx for the response. I'm not sure... It seems the vaccines work, at least people aren't dying of Covid. Those who get ill have a problem, it's not "just a flu". Maybe it's from a chinese laboratory, who knows...
Aug 24, 2021 13:46:55 GMT -5
Boro: I agree regarding Arabs..
Aug 24, 2021 13:50:39 GMT -5
Boro: Be glad, Sweden isn't overpopulated.
Aug 24, 2021 14:11:49 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: true, vaccines do help somewhat, maybe better than nothing..I hope in 2022 we can come out of this nightmare..

Boro: Horrible times, indeed.
