Magorn: stuhayes2010: It's hard for me to use the word Hero for invading imperial forces killing native Zulus.especially when it's 150 men with repeating firles single shot rifles squaring off against a mass charge by guys with spears and hide shields. it a damn Civilization game game ot life, except the spearmen never take out a tank in the real world

vygramul: stuhayes2010: It's hard for me to use the word Hero for invading imperial forces killing native Zulus.The funny thing is that most leadership of most nations/cultures/tribes/whathaveyou are a bunch of farkwads who did ugly things to their fellow people to become their leadership. I don't respect any of them.

Nana's Vibrator: Let's be honest. Even at 150 vs. 4000, it was probably like entering a cheat code.
GungFu: Meh.Colonial Invader Problems.Using rfiles against a multitude of shoeless black people with wooden spears and animal hide shields shouting "Where Dem White Wimmin At?" isn't all that brave in my book.
