  Do you think that future historians will view isis as a legitimate successor to the ottoman empire some 100+ years from now?

Historian 16/07/19(Tue)02:05 No. 14885

Not really, since the Ottoman Empire's foundation was the Eastern Roman Empire. What connection is there between the Roman Empire, Orthodox Christianity (its successor) and ISIS?

The latter are just fundamentalist fuckwits, who, like all fundamentalist fuckwits, believe in taking some goat herders masturbatory fantasies literally, using 21th century linguistics to interpret the translation of a translation they're using as the basis of their theocracy.

ISIS and Southern Baptists would be the best of friends if only they would stop declaring each other the devil.

Ali burns in hell as an unrepentant Muslim vermin and those Christians who cry for him and America the most filthy country since Sodom will burn with that bastard.

Ali did nothing in his life, his works were meaningless. He was a filthy black Muslim and Christ hater in life and he now burns in eternal torment.

So is the Islamic invasion of Europe an intentional act being perpetrated by a multitude of interest groups in the Arab world.

Or they are invading Europe because the laws are so lax, Africans are too poor to do so, and Asiatics are in their own realm.

The dude in germany getting beat up by turkish immigrants for wearing a german immigrants got me thinking. Plus this issue started late 90s and just seems to be rolling out of control.

Your iran choice would've been much more appealing had you just said Iran takes over mid east or something like Syrian-Iran pact where the syrian arabs take arabia, israel and north africa while iran takes iraq, afghanistan, pakistan, azarbaijan, and all the other stans as they were all former persian territories.

When did war stop being glorious?

In the past people joined the war with intention of gaining honor.

I reckon it was the Civil war that really ended the glory of war. I think it has something to do when warring countries ceased to respect eachother.

War was never truly glorious to begin with. Generally power-hungry people, with a lot of influence and money, are able to paint war as being glorious. By doing this, they can get more people to use as pawns to fight wars for them.

Historian 16/04/22(Fri)06:03 No. 14851

I think the Crimean war can also be seen as the end of these glory days. Following the war Russia could no longer use religion as an excuse to invade the Balkans, so war is going to be solely for political gain if they choose to invade. Also, the letters and propaganda that returned home from the soldiers/journalists was mostly criticizing the organizations of their respective army, as well as their leadership in general. Most people began to see the atrocities of warfare at this point and knew that war wasn't as romantic as many made it out to be.

How would other countries react if Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Sweden were to all conglomerate into a single functioning unit? How pissed would Russia be? Would Germany be equally nervous?

Could this new country Scandinavia not theoretically increase positive production through unification since it provides more incentives for investing into different areas for the wealthy?

Is something like this prohibited by EU, what if they did it anyways would people start embargoing them? Would other countries/regions possibly start doing the same thing elsewhere?

Dane here, a little late to the conversation.
Firstly, while the idea looks good on paper, it doesn't have a snowflake's chance in hell given the current socio-political climate of Scandinavia. That is to say, while your average Dane, Swede and Norwegian can get along just fine, our upper middle classes (the people who are needed to act of the 'glue' of such a union) would be at each others throats, and indeed already are to some degree. You've likely already seen examples of Swedish journalism and debate culture, and likely think it complete madness - so ask yourself if you would ever want to merge your country with people like that?

I will leave you with this small example of a moderate Danish/Swedish televised debate:

Ukraine & Belarus (Belorussia) and their mythical nationalisms Historian 15/06/06(Sat)06:11 No. 14625 [Reply]

File 143356391557.jpg - (153.98KB , 733x480 , BRFPB.jpg )

Both Belarussian and Ukrainian nationalism are so misguided. They side with the Western, Latin occupiers (Poland, Lithuanian, Austria-Hungary) and ignore the fact that Belarussians and Ukrainians are part of Rus. They have more in common with the so called "Great Russians" of the Russian Federation than with Westerners.

Why is this? Why do they love their myths so much?

Nationalists lie, and one would be remiss to think that Russian nationalists are immune. But through a purely historical analysis, one can see the holes in the nationalist movements of Ukraine and Belarus. The departure from Rus which is present in both is not only a betrayal of ancestors but a change of identity. Ukrainian and Belarussian nationalism are far more Polish, far more Lithuanian, far more Austrian, than they are Ukrainian and Belarussian.

Ukrainians and Bealrussians are in fact Russians who lived under Western European rule. That is the only difference between them and Muscovy. Why embrace the foreign chains? Why deny one's identity in favor of a foreign force? Why seek to create weak, poor states continually begging for alms from the West? Why not re-unite with the Russian Federation to restore Rus?
