    Communist Control Act of 1954: was it wrong?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Control_Act_of_1954 It seems to me, that this act was an attempt to almost control how people thought.

    Did the Romans make the wrong decision in choosing not to annex Germany and Parthia?

    Under Augustus, the Romans opted for strategically sustainable borders with clear geographic boundaries (the Rhine, the Euphrates, etc). I think that was a broadly sensible strategic decision, but I also wonder if it might not have been more sensible to create a buffer zone in Germany/Parthia...

    Wars where the wrong side won

    As we all know, history is written by the winners. But, this does not necessarily mean that those who do win are histories most loved. So my question is: In which wars do you feel that the ''bad guys'' or in other words the wrong side won?

    Where did Mussolini's Italy go wrong?

    In my opinion, the Fascist Sate of Italy, despite its brutality, did work during the 1920s and 1930s. Where and why did it go wrong? From my own research I believe it was due to Italy entering a war against enemies it could not compete with. Do you agree? Disagree? Or have a different reason?
