    Is there anything much binding the GOP together...

    Is there anything much binding the GOP together other than teeth spitting blind rage? Even if they don't become as apoplectic at the sight of an old white guy as they did at the sight of a young...

    Either you are being deliberately obtuse or you are really not paying attention. There is enough information on this thread alone to explain what is going on. If you want to start paying attention...

    When it comes to government & legislation there is no such thing as a 'purely Hong Kong issue' and has not been for some time, though I suspect you actually know that. As long as China exerts the...

    OC,

    Can I suggest you learn how to use the quote function. Without it your posts are very difficult to follow. If you have question just ask, it is very easy.

    On the more general issue,...

    TH,

    No argument with your intervention, but it would be easier to treat posters with respect if vile misogynist language like this was called out by the Mods. It is well beyond the bounds of what...

    Thanks Ironduke. A small detail I forgot to include is that despite his father being a Congregationalist minister Hawke was openly agnostic.

    One of the things I like about Australia is that we...

    RIP Bob Hawke - Former Australian PM

    Saturday's election here in Australia has been overshadowed by the death of former Australian PM Bob Hawke at the age of 89. Hawke led the nation from 1983 to 1991 and is rightfully considered one of...

    It is pretty clear from this that you are incapable of making arguments based on facts and unprepared to defend even your own words. You found some charlatan who tells you nice little lies about your...

    Either this is a poor attempt at humour or I have wildly overestimated your intelligence.

    Not if it is based on some of the stuff in your post.



    So now there aren't any military historians making this claim? That was quick. As for 'common sense', that tends to be code for ill...
  12. Good luck to you building yet another 'Indian'...

    Good luck to you building yet another 'Indian' version of history, but I sincerely hope it is more soundly based than some of the stuff below.



    Which military historians said that? I would like...

    This has hit hard in Australia. While the two dead Australians is a blow, the real suffering is among the many thousands of Sri Lankan Australians. Most fled the Civil War and had hoped such scenes...

    Yet one more far left authoritarian regime decides to re-run the 'red vs expert' experiment that generations of previous regimes conducted with uniformly bad results (well, some were more disastrous...

    Most people here have been quite open about their 'qualifications'. They do not use them to 'feather their caps'. It is one of the ways we judge the worth of what they say. It is not the only way,...

    Well done DOR. If you keep this up you will finally earn the respect of our new friend, who was apparently once a member of an internet forum on economics. Then you can die happy having reached your...

    I haven't heard that story, but it isn't closely connected to the phenomenon I'm describing. Napoleon sold himself more as a moderniser and implementer of the ideals of the revolution.

    The rise of...

    It isn't a 'new thing' in the west, it just got sidelined by the growth of a particular sort of nationalist/bureacratic construct. Look at any European nation that isn't Iceland or some micro state...

    Can I just acknowledge this as one of the funniest posts I can ever remember on WAB. Misplaced self confidence is a wonder to behold. Lecturing the Colonel on military matters is funny enough, but...

    Well I suppose I should congratulate you on finally posting something that isn't some amalgam of cookie cutter 'anti-imperialist' left wing dross. Now you have moved on to gibberish.
