  1. Re: President Biden's 100 first days in office

    I was under the impression that minimum wage part of the bill was struck down by the Senate Parliamentarian, Macdonough, and that Harris as Vice President being presiding officer of the Senate could...
  2. Re: President Biden's 100 first days in office

    Well, Biden did say that nothing will fundamentally change. He kept his promise so far - airstrike on Syria and no minimal wage increase. More Obamaesque policies to come...
  3. Re: President Biden's 100 first days in office

    Given the geopolitical outlooks of Biden's foreign policy team members, save for Robert Malley, I can't imagine any. At least nothing tangible.

    Perhaps some symbolic sanctions can be placed upon...
  4. Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    Obviously if there's a consensus among the people to allow the owner(s) to exhibit the statue on the public ground, the same goes for maintenance funding.

    Only in non-democratic societies are...
  5. Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    Public statues, in democratic societies, represent a consensus of the local populace that a certain person or their work should be honored and their erection and maintenance are, usually, publicly...
  6. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Congratulations to Joe Biden, personally I don't think he'll be capable of debating Donald Trump due to his... way of speech, but I'm sure that the first debate will be fun to watch, won't need to...
  7. Re: What Is ISLAM?

    Abbasids may not be the most perfect example, given their promotion of Muʿtazilitism as well as the fact the promotion of such views led to figures such as Abu Isa al-Warraq existing during Abbasid...
  8. Re: Who was Alcibiades?

    You are right, with one caveat. There was a somewhat tangential thread a few years back regarding what would the Mediterranean turn out if it was conquered by a Hellenistic power or Carthage instead...
  9. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    For a detailed chronology of Saudi, and that of other states, patronage of Wahhabism and Salafism outside their borders I would like to recommend a book by David Commins, The Wahhabi Mission and...
  10. Re: Who was Alcibiades?

    Maybe, however Athens did forge a relations with dependent Greek city-states in somewhat similar matter Rome did with Italic ones, also Athens created military colonies like Rome. We can only assume...
  11. Re: Mourn with me, brothers and sisters

    Well, neither the laptop or the desktop use Intel's integrated graphics. Laptop uses ATI Radeon and my current desktop uses Nvidia.

  16. Re: Drug of Ionia

    Didn't read the OP since I don't have the time right now, will do later, nevertheless my opinion is that it was mildly realistic given the historical circumstances. However concluding a treaty with...
  17. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Minority in control? Your post gives the impression that 5 milion Arabs are ruling the poor opressed Persians. In reality the Supreme Leader is an Azeri (second largest group) and most of the...
  18. Re: United Arab Emirates: ToTok Affair

    Interesting, but hardly surprising. The UAE are somewhat of a watered down KSA, and depending on individual emirates some, like Sharjah, are even almost as repressive as KSA in terms of cultural...
  19. Re: War with Canada incoming?

    Nothing new here, Cascadia claims parts of Canada as well and we know that the Canucks love arming people who then somehow, for no apparent reason, turn against them.



    It took a lot of work...

    Excuse me, who are you again?
  21. Re: The thread for horrible suggestions

    Modern historians now claim that these highway systems are clearly an improved imitation, like so many of "Roman inventions", of the Old Germanic Autobahn, the Ur-Bahn. I would also like to suggest...
  22. Re: The Afghanistan Papers and

    Like in your previous post, your tone is insulting and you allow yourself to make assumptions about me. My comment is no more ignorant than yours. This is the main point of "disagreement" here. You...
  23. Re: The Afghanistan Papers and

    You can point whatever you like, chances are I already now of it. Also my previous post still stands, I neither said US created the Taliban, nor did I say that the Taliban are the only group apart...
  24. Re: The Afghanistan Papers and

    That, genuinely, has absolutely no relevance to my post. In my post Taliban were mentioned as an avenue for those wanting to attack US and allied troops for whatever reason.
    Also there is no need...

    Thanks. Someone else can take my turn.

  27. Re: Name That Historical Event

    Palms, European buildings... First I thought maybe Spanish killing natives but, later I remembered the Chinezenmoord. 1740 Batavia. Dutch aided by some natives massacred Chinese in the city.

    Pants, long-sleeved tunic, a beard... can't get more Parthian than that, well except that it's missing a pair of boots.
  30. Re: Did you ever visit any place where a particular battle took place?

    I guess you're joking about Jaffas... Nevertheless battles tend to be named after nearest major locale known to participants and that would be Jaffa in this case. Tel Aviv at that time was a small...

  32. Re: EURABIA IS REAL AND WE MUST ACT ASAP!

    May I suggest Brunei instead? They just re-instated Sharia a few years ago, if you behave well perhaps the Sultan's brother will give you tour of his yacht. The one filled with naked mannequins.

    First thing, I don't know... they look... different shade of barbarian to me. :surprise:
    Second, that first site had a popup saying "hey human, did you know we had a podcast'" - How dare they assume...
  35. Re: Did you ever visit any place where a particular battle took place?

    I've visited many Greek battle sites... As well as some others in Balkans and Anatolia.

    You've missed Sanders and Warren.

    There are some people who believe that one doesn't need an economic system where "means of production" are common ownership or owned by the state, therefore there...

  39. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Not sure on what you're basing the opinion of pacifistic Trump. In my humble opinion, probability of next war started is something like this:

    Trump - Turkey 5%, NK 10%, PRC; 25%, IRI 50%;
    Biden -...
  40. Re: The successes of President Donald Trump and their under-reporting by the media (please, no flaming)
