    Re: Macedonia Naming Dispute: Solved?

    A thoroughly idiotic statement. "Either you have a unified Greek identity, or you have a Greek and an Athenian identity. You can't have two cultures and two histories." Fully and entirely ridiculous.
  2. Re: The Threat Within NATO

    Occupation of Greek islands is entirely an invasion by any definition of the word, including the legal one. I mean this is the dumbest statement I've seen in a long time, and this forum isn't exactly...
  3. Re: The Threat Within NATO

    Nonsense, as if everything a country does or does not do is reasonable always.



    And unless you fire those MLRS and howitzers blind and miss, you'd still need targeting data for them to have any...
  4. Re: The Threat Within NATO

    The government has an intention of acting aggressively, minimum.

    And the US has a good reason to get involved seeing how the two countries almost went to war.



    Where did I say Turkey has a...
  5. Re: The Threat Within NATO

    False, and false.

    Turkey has plenty of reason to invade Greece - they're a predatory rogue nation built on a patented brand of expansionist ultranationalism. Their continuous provocations against...

    Re: Adding some Seleukid units to Makedon

    First, remember to back up any of the files you edit before editing them. That way you can easily restore the game if something goes wrong.

  7. Re: Some unrelated recent military procurment storiess since I am getting bored of Ukraine

    Ah, I thought production lines were open in Finland, but it makes sense if they were closed. What a damn shame. Another awesome performance by our shortsighted political leadership.

  8. Re: Some unrelated recent military procurment storiess since I am getting bored of Ukraine

    Hold on, isn't AMOS operational with the Finnish army? Why are we bothering with Mjolnir instead of just picking up AMOS again?
  9. Re: State Barbarism in Turkey: The imprisonment of artist Zehra Dogan

    False on both counts. First of all there's no uniform Western penal code so there's no such thing as a "crime in the West". It may be a crime in some Western countries. If your backwards ass country...

    Re: Erdogan's Prelude to war II.

    There really is nothing to argue about, Turkey is just being obtuse (as they always are). I don't see how one could argue differently, again even if we pretend like there's no treaty:

    Turkey has...

    Re: Erdogan's Prelude to war II.

    Even if we pretend that there isn't a treaty on the subject, this would be sufficient for Greece to have legitimate territorial sovereignty (ownership) based on occupation or prescription, depending...

    Yes. Seriously. Source, show me a statistical source which shows that "land ownership" in international law is "usually" determined by treaty, and that this apparently permits you to draw the...

    Re: Erdogan's Prelude to war II.

    Frankly there's little for Turkey to be gained here. They have no legal title to the island, and nobody is going to concede a Greek populated island to Turkey, period. Not the EU, not the USA,...

    Re: ECHR: Russia failed during the Beslan Siege

    1. Lol at "reading between the lines". No, your OP and title were straight up lies and hyperbole, plain and simple.

    2. Nobody suggested that there shouldn't have been an assault. What is...

    Your condescension is unwarranted. Everyone on the planet understands the "mathematics" (it's basic arithmetic) behind your logic (and I'm being generous by calling it logic). The problem is that you...

    Re: ECHR: Russia, not terrorists, to blame for Beslan Siege

    I'd have done what any other special forces except the Russian SOF units would have done - i.e. not killed the hostages I'm supposed to save. Judging from their actions, one would think they noticed...

    Implying the only options are to let the terrorists gun down children or bomb the school with tanks and thermobaric launchers. Nice one.

    Re: ECHR: Russia, not terrorists, to blame for Beslan Siege

    1. The US isn't part of the Convention, so irrelevant.

    2. Nobody is blaming the terrorist attacks on Russia here. As Adar pointed out, the ECHR is criticising Russia's handling of the situation....

    Re: Erdogan's Prelude to war II.

    Pretty sure it was an explosion, not a fire. A Turk planted a bomb at the Turkish Consulate next to the house where Kemal was born - and the Turks then blamed the explosion on Greece. Of course, your...
  21. Re: Holland refuses turkish FM to enter country, Erdogan retaliates calling dutch ministers nazis

    Turkey has a pretty large domestic military industry, actually, and it's getting bigger. While they still rely on a lot of foreign technical assistance, they've come quite far in developing more...
  22. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

    No, of course not, you just said I needed to be more clear in my post to Nebaki, after I had posted a specific response to you clarifiying that I was referring to Nebaki and even though the original...
  23. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

    It was quite clear from the post itself, as I just explained. Besides there's quite literally no point in insisting on carrying on with this topic : you were "confused" as to whom I was referring, I...
  24. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

    The comment was directed at Nebaki, who claimed the S-300 can be used "offensively" and failed to support the statement, then started criticising Ioannis for his sources with this statement (emphasis...

  26. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

  27. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

    I'm noticing one side dropped the whole "S-300 are offensive" schtick. That was quite humorous. Additionally quite rich to ask for sources when you have provided none for your own claims.

  29. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

  30. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

    So at this point you're so far in denial that you're arguing that your (uninformed) opinion on the content of the law supercedes that of legal scholarship. I think that attitude of yours says...

  36. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

  37. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

    No, the "actori" is the one making a positive claim (the one claiming that something is). I'm making a negative one (i.e. that something isnt). You are asking me to prove a negative, which is nothing...
  39. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

    False. You're assuming a heavily armed escort and asking me to disprove you, that's not how this works, onus probandi incumbit actori. If you want to claim he had some heavy weaponry with him, the...
  40. Re: Turkish provocations against Greece, 21 years after the Imia incident

    I dont need to disprove that he didnt have military escort. Do you see any military escort sporting heavy weaponry in the pictures provided? No. I'm not going to assume there was any.
