I think the real life version deserves a nuke. Such things belong in the forum.

Thoughts? Comments?

Concur on the nuke. Don't preserve anywhere else either. There's no possible way for this article to have a reasonably fair RL section, and this is one of those subjects where RL examples contribute nothing anyway.

Thirding this. It just seem to attract natter.

  • The first Christian missionary to set foot on Korean soil, Robert Jermain Thomas, was brutally killed before even leaving the beach. The pages of his Bible were used as some guy's wallpaper. Then the guy started to read them. The movement that spread from the wallpaper Bible made Pyongyang the center of Christendom in Eastern Asia until the rise of the current North Korean regime. Now, it's Seoul.
...as it seems to contradict the next account I read, on Wikipedia, which describes him as not being the first Christian missionary but the first Protestant one, and says he went to Korea once before before being killed, plus a whole bit with a grounded boat with Americans fighting aboard it. I think Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement may also apply, but an edited form could probably go back on the page, assuming the Wikipedia account is a reasonable one. Anyone know a bit more about this to help fix it?

No idea. I just edited in the name because I knew it sounded familiar, but that's all I know of the story.

Should we remove the Three Hundred Spartans from the Real Life section?

Aside from the hundreds of other troops, there seems to be contention on whether or not they were fighting to inspire the people back home. If it's the former then it's not a Doomed Moral Victor, but rather a military decision
