  1. Re: What if a diminished Western Roman Empire continued into the Late Middle Ages too?

    First of all, I am very interested in the history of the Late [Western] Roman Empire. Could you be so kind and point me to those studies covering the last days of the "Kingdom of Soissons"/"Kingdom...
  2. Re: Discussion on Greek political, financial issues + Referendum

    China might see no reason to lend money to somebody who doesn't pay those money back.

    At first glance it would look like Russia might be willing to buy Greece's vote in the EU. But that vote...

  4. Re: Discussion on Greek political, financial issues + Referendum

    Assuming Greece defaults, how likely is the government (any government, not necessarily Syriza) would be able to cut tax evasion and graft down to acceptable levels within the next 12 months?

    Re: Ukraine and Russia Developments, Thread 3

    Getting Debaltsevo while losing 10 times more men than the Ukrainians is far from encouraging. Especially if Putin intends to get to Odessa. Or even to link-up with Crimea.

    And then there's the...

    Indeed.

    I rest my case.

    Keep up the good work. Fight American imperialism! Expose the Ukrainian Nazis! Long live Putin!

    And while you're at it, keep pretending to be Romanian. The...

  26. Re: Ricochet politics, Romanian style - after electing a German president, a Turkish lady gets a key cabinet position in Bucharest
