Gondorian imperialism


The Commissar reviews Gandalf the "White" and his role in Gondorian imperialism in The Return of the King (via Argghhh!!!). I humbly repeat my own comments.

His illegal, immoral invasion of Mordor was typical. He is "all hat and no magic," so arrogant riding on big white horse. Who he think he is? Never bothered to get authorization from White Council for his war on Mordor.* Never even tried to get Sarumance on board. And Sarumance ended up vetoing his plan at the White Council.

Never proved to me that Sauron actually had the Ring of Mass Destruction. It seems to Commissar that GW and HIS side are only ones that actually USED Ring of Mass Destruction. Why not GW give up HIS Rings of Mass Destruction, huh? Now that would have been fair!

Let's talk about the role of Numenor in propping up Sauron after the so-called "Dark Years". Let's talk about Gondorian arrogance toward the Woses. Let's talk about crippling economic sanctions against Near and Far Harad. Let's talk about illegal Gondorian "settlements" in Ithilien. Besides, I have it on good authority from the Mouth of Sauron that the so-called Last Coalition is nowhere near the Vale of Udun! This is racist, genocidist, colonialist Gondorian imperialistism!

Hey hey! Ho ho! Racist, genocidist, colonialist Gondorian imperialistism has got to go!

I have to admit, the helmets of the soldiery of Gondor struck me as, a, not useful, and b, pretty fey. Those tall peaks just make it easier for someone to knock your helmet off. Or wrench your neck if you have a chin strap.

And Denethor got off lightly for sending his cavalry against entrenched troops with missle weapons. I wouldn't have let him jump.

I love the Orc helmets. All that frip-frap to give your blade/mace/axe lotsa grip! No spanging! off the side of those bubbas. Just good, solid, crunchy-gushy whacks!

Your comments definitely merit their own post.

"the role of Numenor in re-arming ..."

"illegal Gondorian settlements in Ithilien ..."

Great stuff!

Yes, excellent stuff. Bravo.

Aragorn is Hitler!

I couldn't agree with you more. Besides what proof is there of the "6 Million" killed in the Downfall of Numenor? That's just a "myth" with Sauron having nothing to do with it.
