China moves troops to North Korean Boarder
(April 12th 2013) Video footage has been found of China sending tanks and troops to the North Korean Border. Although China would NOT likely back North Korea in a conflict, they may have to deal with a refugee problem if a war does break out. It is also possible that China may want to take control of North Korea should the current regime collapse.
Now thats a good shot!
AS TITLE... STILLS & CLIPS
Shell shock was a reaction of soldiers in World War 1 to the trauma of battle. It is described as a reaction to the intensity of the bombardment and fighting that produced a helplessness appearing variously as panic, or flight, an inability to reason, sleep, walk or talk. Simply put, after even the most obedient soldier had enough shells rain down on him, without any means of fighting back, he often lost all self control. During the War, the concept of shell shock was ill-defined. Cases of shell shock could be interpreted as either a physical or psychological injury, Or simply as a lack of moral fiber. The term shell shock was often identified as the signature injury of the War. The Battle of Verdun, French: Bataille de Verdun, German: Schlacht um Verdun, Was one of the major battles during the First World War on the Western Front.
