So the Russian casualty rate was indeed 10 times higher than the Ukrainian one. I feel vindicated.

Yeah, soon many Greeks will realize that Angela Merkel was actually their friend and there are worse alternatives to her.

The way sanctions are seen by the population depends on whether the population actually supported the actions which led to the sanctions or not. There are only a handful of countries...

I think the Christian attitude to Islam in the early days of that religion reflected the common evolution of human thought when confronted with something new.
The first attempt is to try to fit...

Actually there is zero evidence that sanctions get the population to support the government. The Iranians nowadays and the Iraqis pre-2003 resented their respective governments for the sanctions. ...

Those polls figures show that whatever suffering the Western sanctions are causing, it is well deserved.

The answer depends on the agenda of who is answering :)
The most recent popes decided it would be convenient to state the Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Centuries before, the...

Yes, they were a bit overweight, at least that was the conclusion of the forensic analysis performed on their skeletons.
Also those who died as gladiators tended to die young, according both to...

There is evidence the gladiators were more similar to the professional wrestlers of today than what the movies and the fiction books have portrayed them to be.
For instance, it seems that actual...
Colonization resulted in a pretty functional democracy in places where the newcomers almost completely replaced the natives: US, Canada, Australia, New Zeeland or Singapore (most of the Singaporeans...
You do realize that Hamas cannot actually do anything if Israel decides to drive the Palestinians from Gaza into the sea or into Egypt, do you?
So Hamas isn't protecting the civilians, Hamas is...

Well, another approach would be to have the media under the control of the national academies. That way only high-quality stuff gets published and broadcasted.
However, since many people might...

And oil is Norwegian but those are all past and future Swedish vassals. So you are just splitting hair.
In the times before effective birth control and in poor countries, the children were often seen as a liability or as a source of cheap labor.
Those children in Switzerland weren't slaves,...

If things really start to happen, the effects will be visible in less than a year.
I have already seen that in Romania. The cooperation among prosecutors, tax inspectors and intelligence services...

The core debate of this thread is the following:
1) Armed Muslims who engage in violence against non-Muslims result in non-Muslim media reporting negatively on their deeds. Those reports risk to...

Some Copts allied with the Muslims, just like during the Crusades some Muslims allied with the Crusaders. Nothing new under the sun, really.
What matters armed Muslims invaded Egypt, where they...
July 29, 2015, 01:16 AM
The Copts refused to surrender their cities, even though the Muslims invoked a [non-existing] kinship through that mythical lady Hagar.
The Chinese had fought the Muslims on several occasions...
July 28, 2015, 05:32 PM
Other than killing them and being killed by them? I guess you're right, they were on excellent terms otherwise.
By the way the Muslims are increasingly popular in China nowadays.
July 28, 2015, 05:14 PM
Which claims do I need to back? That both the Egyptians and the Chinese had fought the Muslims on the battlefield?
I wasn't imprecise, nor was I wrong unless somebody imagines people killed on...

Staying in the Euro zone is probably the only thing which would result in meaningful reforms. And the pain which comes with it is the only guarantee at some point in time people will ask for blood...
July 28, 2015, 09:18 AM
Read more carefully next time.
So I should understand that you don't like it?
July 28, 2015, 09:14 AM
The good news everybody seems to ignore is the Russians have decided to increase the spending on their navy.
July 28, 2015, 09:02 AM
Hey, be nice to the pigs! They are hundred times better than Mr. Phillips.
Filthy Western lies!
July 28, 2015, 08:58 AM
Out of curiosity, do you have any idea why Greece couldn't be fixed for like almost 100 years, before falling into the lava?
Could it be that a lava bath is the only cure? After all, Hephaestus...

Fighting against them sword in hand would be opposite to welcoming them, methinks.
1) It would be all those things if it would be attempted and after being attempted if it would still fail like...

Do you think companies would keep hiring immigrants if they could be herded like chattel and dragged around the EU from country to country?
And if companies would stop hiring immigrants, do you...
July 28, 2015, 08:32 AM
You may want to look closer to what actually happened both in the case of Egypt and China.
Add to that those Muslims had no business outside the Arabian peninsula to begin with, just like nowadays...
July 28, 2015, 08:13 AM
Some say we still have it, but that's beside the point.
Which means the taxman does extract money from you. But instead of funding the say, local fire brigade, or local ambulance service, that...
July 28, 2015, 08:00 AM
Well, the EU has a policy of free movement. It is good people are free to move, and that should be not only kept, but emphasized: if you are not local, you should be encouraged to keep moving.

The State is made of cheats and liars who can exercise lawful coercion towards you because you were stupid enough to break the law and make yourself vulnerable to them.
In case you haven't figured...
Your rhetoric is priceless.
You cannot stop stop Russia from collapsing, so you can't prevent the arrival of the NATO peacekeepers either.
By the way, the level of this thread...
July 28, 2015, 07:28 AM
More likely you create a liability for yourself because after you cheat you are a valid target for both blackmailing and lawful repression.
July 28, 2015, 07:10 AM
You are Muslim by choice. The Muslim terrorists have made two choices:
1) To be Muslim;
2) To be terrorist.
You chose not to be terrorist.
You can also choose not to be Muslim if you...
Oh, so we have a Dugin fan.
In your imaginary world the Romanians will eventually get fed up with the "Western whore of Babylon" and would jump in the wide opened arms of Orthodox Mother Russia.
Well, the evil NATO and the evil West have succeeded to drag your beloved Mother Russia into another arms race.
We know how that ends. Last time it ended with the collapse and dismantling of the...
As I was saying before, Putin's money can't buy decent trolling anymore.
So yeah, the evil NATO member and America's lapdog Romania is about to gobble up the ancient Russian lands of Moldova. ...
July 24, 2015, 08:28 AM
Actually what truly matters is which of the two countries will be left standing when this conflict ends. My money is on Ukraine.
July 24, 2015, 08:26 AM
Talk is cheap.
July 24, 2015, 08:16 AM
Central Anatolia wasn't as interesting as the coastline (including Cilicia here) or as Syria was from the economic point of view. The land there had much lower fertility than the land on the...
