Also another interesting thing is that it makes Russian history look like a bunch of dictatorships and chaos. The textbooks don't mention anything good about the Russians, also it makes them look like they wanted to start a war with NATO. Oddly enough textbooks seem to be very pro-French, often glorifing them in various wars, they sort of forget to mention the fact that they lost virtually all of their wars, including the occupation in the 40's.

Have we ever actually sat and thought to ourselfs, "What are we learning in history class?", or maybe "How Do We Know This Point Of History Happned The Way It Was Told?". Alot of times I wonder to my self why so many figures in history portrey themselves as hero's, and Native Americans as savages. Even thought its 2005 some history books still insist that the Native Americans were the aggressors and still refered to as Indians in most cases. I didnt see this as a existing post so someone help me out with theories and hypothosis.
