    One of the few manliest men to never raise a gun but go in blazing with a sword in a bow and a bagpipe. If they ever wanted to make an alternate reality Captain America or Captain Britain this is the guy to do it.

    The American propaganda machine strikes again. The truly first in flight was Santos Dumont, period ! Thousands of schools are named after him in Brazil because of that. The brothers came back later saying that they did it first, yeah, right. FAI in France also recognizes Dumont as the first. You americans invented many things but please do not steal the only thing a Brazilian invented and contributed to the world's modern era !!!!!!!

    Reznov: Brave comrades of Vorkuta, the time has come to rise against our oppressors! Today, we show them the hearts of true Russians! We have all given our blood for the Motherland. We have answered her calls without question. We gave our youth, our hearts, our very souls for her protection. As brothers, we fought side by side against the German fascists. We crawled through dirt and blood and sand to achieve our glorious victory... Not for medals, or glory ...But for what was right. We fought for revenge... When Berlin fell, how did our leaders repay us? We returned not to the rapturous welcome...but to suspicion and persecution. In the eyes of our leaders we were already tainted by the capitalist West. Torn from the arms of our loved ones, we found ourselves here... this place... this, this terrible place. Here we have languished, with no hope for release... No hope for justice. We have toiled in Dragovich's mines until the flesh peeled from our bones... We have watched our comrades succumb to sickness and disease... We have been starved. We have been beaten. But we will not be broken! Today, we will send a message to our corrupt and arrogant leaders. Today, my comrades... Vorkuta - BURNS!!!
