    Re: Russian & Eastern Europe Geopolitics thread

    That makes no sense. You don't want to just parry when somebody is trying to stab you, you want to hit that somebody where it hurts so he stops trying to stab you.

    Re: Russian & Eastern Europe Geopolitics thread

    The notion that Russia is a military threat to the Europe, or comparable to Germany in the 30's, is based on nothing but hot air and idiotic spin. All you hear is media fear-mongering. Look at the...

    I think raze should be in the game as it adds a good amount of depth and strategy to the game. For instance exterminating every filthy barbarian around you as WRE is a good tactic to achieve peace.

    How do you know Nemtsov had not angered some people important enough to put a price on his head? Contract killings are, sadly, not uncommon in Russia.
  20. Re: Putin did not order the execution of political opponent

    My guess is that this was a mob-hit or perhaps a hate crime (by ultra-nationalists). If Nemtsov was really killed by radical nationalists due to his views on Ukraine, Putin can be blamed at most ...
