    Anyone in favour of Revisionism ?

    Historical revisionism of course. Anything from standard historical topics like vietnam war, world war 2 to contentions topics like israel/gaza, holocaust etc. I am. History is written by the winners, so there's no guarantee that is actually completely accurate account of how it happened.
