Посмотрел фильм Тарковского "Андрей Рублев"....

Неужели все так беспомощно?

"... France sought the psychological compensation of territorial conquest in distant regions of the non-European world where local authorities lacked the political organization and military power to offer effective resistance."

Currently browsing through my History/IR textbook from the "History of Intenrational Relations of 1900-1945" class.

Feeling very nostalgic about the good days, before communism; belive me there was light in the tunnel, even before the reds led the people like Moses through the desert.

The very good times, when the Russian Empire was in control of Finland, Manchuria, Outer Mongolia, the Baltic countries, roughly a third of Poland...

Very, very sad. I can live without Mongolia, but Manchuria and Poland are priceless.
