  1. Re: Julian Assange is arrested by British police

    As expected, the rape investigation has been dropped by the Swedish judicial authorities. This will help cement his image as a victim of political persecution, since it also deprives his opponents of...

    I agree. I'm usually too casual for these moves, but even I enjoyed it. The next image concerns one of my favourite political films:

    Re: Name that Battle!

    Nope. It took place near what is now an Estonian port and the destroyed ship had the name of a Russian prince (not sure whose, but he probably ruled in Kiev).

    Re: Name that Battle!

    You found the British and you are very close to the year, but no Ottomans were involved.
    As an extra hint, the engagement occurred in the Baltic Sea and resulted into a British victory.
