Hi shazzam,

it is not TRADITION - it is something more. It is HISTORY and learning from history. It is something much more than history. Some nations can learn this lesson, other cannot. My mostly cannot. i mean - no more Napoleon in Europe and we are lost in our Poland. But still we can move out for a holiday. IF we have money of course. Well... besides we can work. How long?
Time will show. I think sooner or later possibility of working to Polish people in so called European Union will be will be illegal again. I don't know if it is good or bad. No difference for me.
Cheers:)
real_lord, Poland.

For me Blair is simply cunny he didn't start a war. He supported Bush out of historical and economical reasons. Besides, my dear, you all - US, Canada, Australia, New Zeland, GReat Britain, Ireland speak more or less the same language. You have to admit is much better to visit your cousin whom you can understand than someone whom you HARDLY understand:(

History turns its everlasting circle once again and today British Empire is a brain of this world. Not US. I say BRAIN not FORCE of this world. Well... I realise technology PROBABLY is better in US but history and long-lasting are on Europe's side. So Blair has to take care both about US and about Europe. It has happened never before cause Brits cared usually only outside continent.
Far from France I mean.
People mostly are US obsessed. I am far from that. Good? Bad?
Don't know. But what I believe superpowers come and superpowers go away while both Rome lasts and Jewish nation.
(Plus Polish hihihihi)

I said I would not reply to your posts, but this part really annoys me. You keep bragging about your knowledge of history, but I do not think you understand what the real meaning of history. Part of learning about history is observating and absorbing the cultures and events, not comparing one culture to another or one event to another with a judgmental eye. Instead, one should look at history with an objective eye. People who learn history to compare which culture is better than which or which event is better than which are prejudiced. Sometimes they can be discriminated since they try to compare and generalize cultures to cultures. I mean, who to say which culture is more modernized or savage than another? :roll:
