I think the Turks acted with the blessing of the Americans (and British, and French). You may ask: what is in it for those Western powers?
Due to the Paris terrorist attacks the West has come to...

I doubt this time Putin would manage to look good in the eyes of the Russian public opinion by just taking his shirt off.
He now has to find some dragon to slain very quickly. He can't play the...

Jarred Diamond writes is his book "Guns, germs and steel" that it has been attempted in recent modern times (after WW2) to domesticate the zebra and the African buffalo without success, in spite of...

More likely because in the last 20 years or so terrorists killing in the name of Jesus have limited themselves to bombing abortion clinics. Muslim terrorists have a much more spectacular track...

I would wait for the second round of voting. Topics like this are approached differently than in the West in this part of the world.
Romania decriminalized homosexuality only in 1996, 5 years...

Only if the SMEs can become big by doing business better than their competitors.
If the SMEs cannot grow because they don't have access to financing (from banks, from VCs or from the stock...

The fundamental problem the southern economiei had (and still have) has little to do with a strong euro and a lot to do with the structure of those economies, the productivity of those economies and...

You do realize that if the assistance extends to the Volga river this time again, that would mean Mother Russia's nuclear arsenal had become inoperable, don't you?
And while it is true the World...

The steel helmets were not used if those troops were unlikely to be subjected to artillery fire. This is why commandos or alpine troops were often fighting wearing soft hats.

You do realize that region, which used to be part of Romania until the Russians annexed it in 1940 and again in 1944 is impossible to supply from Russia, while it's easily accessible from Romania?

Using the phenotype (the looks) as an argument for the "blackness" of the Egyptians is as scientific as phrenology.
That being said, guess what? The evil white supremacist Europeans have already...

And would kill Jesus twice if given the opportunity. Therefore I sincerely hope sanity would eventually prevail over cheap political correctness and they will haul his butt to Guantanamo.

The issue is less about "Romanian companies care more about Romania than foreign ones". Just one glance at the behavior of the Romanian companies owned by the local oligarchs would quickly dispel...

The interesting question is why wasn't he struck by lightning before entering the building?

The government is currently negotiating the sale of Tarom to Turkish Airlines.
The Turkish white goods manufacturer Beko had bought the largest Romanian manufacturer of white goods (Arctic) in the...

The following were privatized at gunpoint (EU and the IMF holding the guns) to foreign investors:
1)Fixed-line telephone company;
2)The largest two energy companies;
3)The consumer part of the...

They keep the foreign investors away through corruption, bureaucracy and refusing to privatize the large state-owned companies.
The largest amount of foreign investment in Romania is the result of...

If you take a good look at that graph you will notice that Romania was doing well for 7 years in a row before joining the EU. You will also notice the slope of the graph stayed the same for the next...

Apparently Putin's troll factory in Leningrad is still working on Ukraine. I wonder when are they going to switch on Syria? That would be the sign the terrorists have been completely abandoned.

Isarescu was trying to delay joining the Euro zone since Romania joined the EU, way before the Greek crisis.
The reason is this: most of the Romanian exports go to Germany, Italy and France and...

Except for the tiny detail those scumbags are connected to the Russian government in more than one way, as Adar has sourced.
Which means you either didn't bother to read his sources.

Not really. There are a few groups, each claiming to be "the real Iron Guard".

If the communists do win and abolish the private property, you will be re-educated. After that, you would understand why you didn't deserve to live in your house and that the community knows best...

For the refugees and immigrants, the best way to achieve this is to place them in reeducation camps as soon as they cross the border. A comprehensive re-education program should also consist of...

Quite likely that is how the EU procedures for integration will look like as a result of this crisis.
In the past such "forced secularization" would have been deemed "Nazi" and as a result the...

On the issue of brown people (and black people, while we're at it). After Michael Jackson there's no excuse anymore for being brown (or black). Probably no excuse for being yellow either. If...

How could those marines be sure those Japanese soldiers were honestly surrendering, after experiencing false surrenders which resulted in comrades of theirs being killed?
Add to that the other...

The yellow captions are accurate.
The problem is the last frames are not part of the original video. They are added by whoever edited it, in order to advertise those racist websites.
So you and...

Riot police are supposed to Duke Nukem the rioters. How else should they instill fear into the hearts of rioters?
I remember a French documentary about the CRS (the French riot police). The...

The Chinese had developed the repeating crossbow in the 3rd century AD. It had a very high rate of fire (10 bolts in 15 seconds) but had an effective range of about 80m (because the bow had to be...

Overall Archduke Charles won more battles than he lost, which shows he had a good grasp of the issues he wrote about. His books are a better read than "On War" for somebody who wants to understand...

At the time there were 2 rival schools of thought, that of Clausewitz and that of Jomini + Archduke Charles of Austria.
(Archeduke's Charles works are free on Google Books, provided one can read...

If one believes the world was created in seven days one believes in other interesting stuff too, like saving the souls of the Muslims.
That can be done in many ways. One way would be to separate...

I think it's more of a matter of shall I say intellectual laziness. That is, instead of trying things in practice, spending too much time debating them in the realm of ideas and principles.

The root of the problem is not the Syrian civil war or the Afghan one, or Iraq 2003 or Libya 2011.
The root of the problem is the EU countries don't have adequate ways to integrate the minorities...

I have never claimed you were Hitler. I simply pointed out he would have been able to say the same things in a much shorter way.
As for your hope that the Israelis would see the errors of their...

Agreed (wow! it happened!), but several far right parties thinking along the same lines are increasingly popular all over the EU.
That, combined with some random shootings on high speed trains,...

The Slovak government has announced Slovakia would only accept Christian refugees. I wonder who else in the EU might catch that ball and run with it.

Muhammad is the false prophet (if one believes in imaginary beings) or just another dirty old pedophile caravan robber and extortionist (if one doesn't believe in imaginary beings). He isn't...

Pray tell me which false prophet is the Book of Revelations targeting?!
