    Re: Russia continues to expand

    Why would a "pro-Russian coup" occur there? Why not a pro-Dutch coup? Or a pro-Italian coup? Both are probably more likely in Sweden.

    Re: Ukraine and Russia Developments, Thread 3

    Besides the Leopard 2A6, some American tanks are outfitted with German main guns. German small arms are almost as ubiquitous as the AK-47. And then there's some naval equipment. And all of those...

  11. Re: I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the Islamic Caliphate of Iraq and Syria (Warning, thread contains dangerous levels of stupidity)

    IIRC it's the same problem with Northern Germanic (e.g. Icelandic) names, too. I guess since The Americans is centered on Russian folks, they researched the subject a little better than others.
