Debel - Word of the Day

Debel v. - To conquer in war

June 25, 1947 is the day that The Diary of Anne Frank was published

Also the day of the Battle of Little Big Horn in 1876

And the day that France formally surrendered to the Nazis

Given the number of wars the world has had in the whole span of human history, I'm guessing that the wiki is missing a couple of the major events.

Last year on June 25th, deaths in Iraq topped 50,000

Where will June 25, 2008 take us? Can we foresee a more peaceful world or will the conflicts in the Middle East only escalate? Will a new president make any difference in the grand scheme or things, or has this administration already pushed it too far past breaking point?
