Yes, seen it before.

Now, it is imperative that when we study history we parallel it with today's events.

For instance, what events lead to WWI?

What events to WWII?

What were the events leading to the Great Depression?

If you start to study the past events and time lines you may not like what you find.

Yes, Lincoln was shot watching a play in a theatre.  Oswald after shooting Kennedy ran into a movie theatre, where he was caught.

I'm not saying its inaccurate, but that one is a stretch.  He ran home, and ran in the theater after shooting a cop.

The Romans used lead for everything.  They even used lead acetate as a sweetener.

Rome fell because of a ring, read your History or rent the movies, Duh

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,

One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."

The Multicutralism theroy has been shot down by most historic scholars. Many racist groups like to hold on to the theory.

Most inportant factor of the fall of the Roman Empire, was the long battles fought on many fronts, particuarly in Africa and the North Atlantic,

Secondly several crop failues and resulting disase that followed, due to a very prolonged drought.

Third: Other armies and nations had grown in Miitary might, weaponry and had learned how to counter attack Roman formations
