Re: Can Russia be Defeated?

It presumably helps that Portugal is on the tail end of Europe, with Lisbon nearly 4000 kilometres from Moscow. He's safe in feeding everyone else to the crocodile knowing it really will eat him last. It does help, but it isn't the reason why I am not afraid of Russia. Russia doesn't need any more ...

Re: do the Europeans want another war?

I couldn't say it any better. I don't know how long it will take, but we will get back control of our Continent, and send all US troops back to their country. Without which we will have another war in Europe . Strange, sertorio, that in light of your quoted article you should concede that without t...

Re: Blue or Red Wave?

The Canadian system is similar to the Australian one. Furthermore, when Canada got its Charter of Rights and Freedoms the practice of denying prisoners the right to vote was set aside, a practice still common in America. The government’s argument that denying the right to vote to penitentiary inmat...

Re: Two lessons from WWI
