I decided to go ahead and do some more research on the matter, and found the the word's origins have been traced to the Danube River near the mouth at the Black Sea, but is evidenced throughout the Ancient Persia Empire through Egypt, Israel, Iraq, and Iran, from nearly 3,000 years ago. Now, the Bal...

They used impaling, no doubt, but what they called it didn't translate into the current use of the word. The current use of the word is directly resulted from the Balkans. I think, however, you've taken offense when no offense was offered. I'm not criticizing the Balkans. I've not criticized the Bal...

According to the information I've read, impale came from Yugoslavia when it was under Turkish control. If you know that to be false, I'd like to learn the truth, and would much like to know your resource of such information so that I could learn it.

What about a man convicted of having sex with a minor consentually? That's still a sex-offense. Should they also be banned from owning guns?

I don't like sex-offenders having guns, but you may want to re-word that to be violent sex-offenders?

Just my opinion on the matter, but hand-guns are made for killing humans. That's the only intended purpose of them. However, I don't see how outlawing them will produce any results. We can outlaw the guns all we want, there is no way to prevent people from actually getting the guns. We tried outlawi...

If I'm not mistaken, he did it rather violently. In fact, the word "Impale" comes from Yugoslavia, but for the sake of those with weak stomachs, I'll not say the procedure or the outcome of the procedure.

What Milosivec did was merely restart what had been happening for hundreds of years in the region. It wasn't until after WWII that peace was actually settled in the region, and then the peace was always on edge. Well, until the early '90s when the peace gave way to war. However, Moonman, you made a ...

A great book to read on the subject of Milosevic is Peter Maass's "Love Thy Neighbor". Peter Maass is a Jew, and was a reporter in the early '90s. He was in Serbia reporting on the war, and his book is about his time in Serbia. Regardless of your current view on the subject, I do suggest t...
