    Bruh why whould you start a war just saying : "IM GONNA START A WAR ON [insert Country here]!" WHY WHOULD YOU START IT LIKE THAT. If that is the legal starting war im not gonna do that because it's like telling someone you don't like that you are gonna shoot him in the face. Because if you have a illegal war noone knows you're doing a war So you can plan out without any suspects. Like killing is illegal already.

    Book about Japanese troops in Russia: - Our fathers and mothers were neither convicts nor exiles. They were looking for a better life and satiety on Sakhalin. When the Japanese came, we already had two hundred yards here. There was a school, a Church, a mill, even a dairy farm. The samurai ravaged everything, looted everything, swept it clean. They are pests: where the sewing machine will see, because he, the bastard, will spin it on the cogs; and all the cogs will be scattered on the street. To frighten us and force the Russian people to leave Sakhalin, the enemies burned all the crops on the vine, and the forests around them were felled. And two hundred of our Vladimir men and women were taken to the pad beyond the lake. When they found them, they all had no heads… Then we, who were still alive, immediately ran. Who wants to die such a death?.. Let me remind you of an interesting historical fact. At the Portsmouth negotiations in 1905, Russian representative Sergei Witte, trying to bargain for the rights to Sakhalin, referred to an agreement of 1875, according to which Russia had already given Japan all the Kuril Islands for this land. Yutaro Komuro, head of the Japanese negotiating delegation, said: "The war negates all agreements. You have suffered defeat and let's proceed from the current situation." What is the problem with the Japanese?
