Re: Jair Bolsonaro declared Brazil's next president

So when did your abos got the right to vote? Easy to answer, Just read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voting_rights_of_Indigenous_Australians You might wonder how, given that our indiginees made such progress during the latter 19th century in gaining voting rights, why they were shorn of those...

Re: No cassowary: it was the colonial tail that ended up wagging the British dog.

None of the Anglo countries (US, UK, Australia etc) were democracies in the 19th century . You also gradually evolved into a full fledged democracy. Let's take Britain for example. The vote was initially given to men of property and gradually extended to lower economic classes. I don't have time to...

Re: American Achilles heel?

Succinctly, the USA today lacks the strength that gave it the clear advantage over the USSR back in the 1980's. You forget that the US economy is nearly $16 trillion while the Russian economy is only $2 trillion . No way can Putin compete in an arms race with the US. No, I have not overlooked that ...

Re: Two lessons from WWI

Hi Alexis, You have not posted on this website for so long now I was concerned that you had grown tired of us and bowed out. Glad to see you are still with us. The person on this planet who most needs to think about the lessons of WWI, and what befell the German emperor Wilhelm II, is US president D...

Re: WWI

. High ranking officers - mostly generals - have a duty to refuse to fight any war which isn't strictly defensive. But since they hardly ever are part of the cannon fodder, I suppose they don't mind. Have you not heard of charges like mutiny; insubordination; treason? In wartime you can be executed...

Re: 'Rah, rah rah!' for the Isthmus of Kra.

Indeed. Neither Russia nor China treat their "friends" and "allies" worse than the US does. Just a while ago the US decided to leave the INF Treaty, which means it has the intention of displayng such missiles against Russia. Which can only happen in Europe, and will automatically make Europe a targ...

Re: WWI

Today several heads of state celebrated the end of WWI, the most useless and unjustifiable war ever. Over 20 million people died - 10 million of whom soldiers - for nothing. Europe was in 1918 a lot worse off than it was in 1914, and the seeds were sown for another major war. The whole conduct of t...
