    Re: Did China win the Korean War?

    Agreed on some level. But then I do think it's a difference of that. The Western Allies did not go out in 1948/etc trying to annex the North into the South. In contrast the North and its' sponsors...

  5. Re: ''The Gallipoli centenary is a shameful attempt to hide the Armenian Holocaust''

    If anything, it's more insidious than that. Everybody remembers the Armenians, and the genocides of 1915-1918(19/20).

    What many people don't realize is that it targeted a *lot* more than just...

    That is correct. However, it is by far one of the most common forms of address/title given to the city of Novgorod, which is why it struck me as possibly fitting. And a way to avoid it.
