Help Me - I Wanna Be Un-PC For A Day...


Here at the PMC we're in a bit of a quandry, namely, we can't decide which side we back in the American Civil War of 1861-65 we should back.

Now, on the surface, this should be a no brainer, right? The North, obviously, since they were abolitionists. On the other hand, the South had a cooler flag (latterly, I think the saltire-based design came in towards the end of the war), more balls, and the Dukes of Hazard (and Lynryd Skynryd) onside...

...anyway, since the war was resolved (on the side of the righteous) one hundred and forty five years ago now, it's fairly academic, but we're still wondering if any of our readers are faced with the same, "it's-obvious-whose-side-I-should-back-but-in-any -case-I-fancy-the-other-side" dilemma. Perhaps you secretly back the nazis, hoping their far cooler Stuka dive bombers, Tiger tanks and Nebelwerfer rocket launchers would put pay to those pesky Americans, Brits and Russians once and for all. Or maybe you really take pleasure from the British government forces' crushing of the Jacobites at Culloden. Or alternatively you revel in the Conquistadores atrocities, or think that Sadam Hussein's use of chemical weapons against the Kurds and the marsh Arabs were right to hold sway, whatever it is, we'd like to know..

...mark your entries 'The Side That I Secretly Back In a War That Has Long Since Been Resolved, Even Though I Know They Were The Baddies' and there might even be a prize in the offing, for the best entry, who knows...
