    In short, if the OP escaped your attention, is there a popular platform for his ideas?

    Implementing a parliament for the euro zone and, in his words, "adapt our policies and institutions to...

    Aye. (But I won't hold my breath.)

    I really hope so. Data from the World Bank suggests quite a climb for Poland, as well as for the vast majority of NATO member states.

    I was unaware of the seigniorial prerogative.

    Regardless, I hope he finds his way back online, especially as it is now evident that Breedlove and Obama are not on the same page, or that Russia's...

    Fair enough. I actually thought that he was toying with that particular image, especially considering his increasingly blunt and aggressive antics. For instance, "I shot you down" or "Soldiers like...

    Pardon the absenteeism, but now that I have time to reply I'd might as well give this another try. Moreover, the Russian troop buildup along the Finnish border and the Baltic states brings new life...

    Classic deflection and reversal finished off with a brush of uncanny pro-Russian apologetics. Hitler/Putin annexes and invades, yet the invaded party is at fault for mobilizing his nation's defenses...

    Sticky: John J. Mearsheimer, The Tragedy of Great Power...

    John J. Mearsheimer, The Tragedy of Great Power Politics (Norton, 2003).

    In many ways an overly simplistic work by the notorious anti-Semite. That is, land-based forces take precedence to sea and...

    Pardon the absenteeism, but hopefully you will still be around to reply.

    This.

    I would also consider counseling for his fanboys. Repetition compulsion is a symptom of mental illness which is neither cured by externalizations ("hitting pillows") nor by the listener's...

    1) Because Republican presidents are often stuck with Democratic majorities in Congress overriding the presidential veto.
    2) Due to Democratic veto overrides. Then again, by nearly doubling GDP...

    Your blunt approach is unbecoming. As kato pointed out in the post above, military dictatorship has never been a hindrance to NATO membership.

    Communication is never a mistake, comrade. Communication reveals and outlines. The more we speak the more it becomes evident that your MO is textual Маскировка, be it conscious or unconscious.

    Apples and oranges. I was referring to a report compiled and presented by the Economist Intelligence Unit, known as the Democracy Index. The mere existence of a parliamentary system, as in Assad's...

    MrSecond,
    It is obviously a concerted effort by Sergei Kirichuk and his Borotba, the Ukrainian fifth column, joining forces with GRU operatives in the media. As far as I'm concerned I think you're...

    Finland will not become a member of NATO unless Sweden takes the first step. Moreover, in both Sweden and Finland, NATO membership is a partisan issue favored by the center-right and opposed by the...

    Yes, I'm a foreigner in Tallinn, which I thought was evident. That, however, should not make you dismissive. By comparison, anyone looking to grasp American democracy in its early stages will...
