Yes, that's cartainly a factor here: a nation with strong identity but no state is well relatable to 19th century Poland - which means they're in a situation well relating to our culture classics. The Kurd I knew also showed a welcome version of Islam - he didn't eat pork nor drink wine but he was t...

For some reason, Kurds have very good press in Poland.

I met only one personally and he was genuinely in line with this good press.

I wonder if these opinions on Kurds stem back from Iraqui War, where Polish soldiers found them the most relatable group of locals? Maybe.

^ Not only this aspect of their leadership style is a weakness. There's long tradition of something I'd describe as "the tsar has spoken - screw the reality" system. Putin, who has zero military experience and is far away from the matters, tells the battlefield officers what decisions to m...

I was warned about "conservative" Eastern Turkey but it turned out difficulty in buying alcohol was the only noticeable sign of it. And muezzins singing five times a day while everyone were ignoring them. Women wore long trousers and T-shirts, around half of them wore hijab, mostly the old...

The only connection between Cuban Crisis and current situation I can see is fear of nuclear SHTF.
Otherwise, the two are totally different stories.

I think there are two possible paths to ending the war: Ukraine loses decisively or Putin loses decisively But haven’t most wars in human history ended somewhere in the middle? As illogical as this might seem. Most wars, yes. But total invasions are rarely like this. Either a nation gets practicall...

Whatever people think about the EU, it's not Nazi Germany! The EU hasn't murdered millions of innocent people or invaded other countries :roll: People here were afraid EU would become an European Soviet Union, but 18 years later I can say: no, it didn't. It's rather over-bureaucratic but that's not...

Poles did protest in 1980s. Ukrainians did protest in 2014. Belarussians did protest in 2020. Iranians are protesting now. Do they want to build a better country for themselves or not? Or is the only problem the fact they are losing and as long as it were Ukrainians and Buryats dying, they didn't ca...

Challenge— Prepare a short speech of what you might tell family members of people who might die in the coming months, and how you might explain that “making Putin pay” or something similar was deemed as more important than allowing the war to wind down? To Ukrainians: "I know what you're fight...
