Hi Ianus!

Very very good riposte! And yes you were quite right, I was trying to play Devil's advocate to stir debate! Very well done indeed! But please allow me to see things from my 'British perspective' as geography does play an important part in our outlooks.

Yes, I do agree that Russia is a far better ally than my 'dear Turkey' but recent activities in England by Putin's people hardly endear us Britons to them! And yes I fully concur that defence of one's civilisational-cultural demesne, is by far and away the best policy but who is going to trust the bunch of cynics and opportunists that currently run thing in the world!? They really are a bunch of 'gentlemen without fathers'.

I also have to confess that I try to write from a none subjective viewpoint, deliberately to stir debate and get at the truth, or rather to gain access to what people really believe and think in a time when opinion is silenced by the scum that run the EU and the rotten religious bigots. This is in fact my sole function as an author!

We must speak up and debate for our civilisation to survive! And yes I am an Hellenophile with great admiration for the Greeks and their struggles, as I am the Serbs that stood against the Turkish hordes. These were after all Christian Armies...my people and my civilisation and yours!

And yes British politicians and diplomats are a pretty dishonourable bunch! And yes the installation on Mount Olympus is still in operation today.

As for the Russians wanting a warm water port that still holds true. Putin seems to be trying to bully Ukraine that has aspirations to EU membership and as they are Christian I would welcome them, as I would not necessarily the Turks without major changes in Turkey. Those changes will never happen of course without a civil war in Asia Minor. And like you I distrust the Nationalists. Moslems by the way seem to have a rather broad definition of the truth don't they? We would call it telling lies of course! But Moslems don't lie do they Ianus as we both well know! And the Moon is made up of Islamic green cheese isn't it Ianus? Did you know that the American Lunarnauts all became good Moslems after eating it and hearing the call to Moslem prayer after landing there! Wallace and Grommet went to the moon looking for Islamic green cheese as well! It is called 'A Great day Out! All good Moslems should watch it!

A Ukraine in the EU sympathetic towards Russia, could be a boon but how could we know, given Putin's desire to curry favour with his own populace in an effort to bolster Russia's lost power. I do not believe by the way that Russia is as broken as you say. She is still a power to be reckoned with and has a nuclear strike force. She also supplies power to the Ukraine and Europe, and she has already tried to influence European stataegy. You cannot blame her for that of course, since she has been invaded by Napoleon and Hitler, both Europeans in the last 200 years alone!

Russia cannot be blamed for being fearful of American and European attempts to surround her and hem her in! The modern EU maybe something of a military joke but the Yanks are not! Yes, Russian could be a great source of comfort to Europe and the US in our fight back, as she has been before when she gave 30,000,000 lives. However traditional east-west attitudes have to change big time and I do not see that happening ...yet. However as the reality of Islamist expansion dawns upon the dopes in Europe, then perhaps Russia will fulfil the role it did in the Napoleonic wars, to wit a traditional Eastern ally of the West. She has after all always wanted to be accepted as a truly westernised power and we have not exactly been of assistance here. That has to change I think!

Turkey would then be of little use to the West! or sic magnus cedit titulis Agamemnonis Atreus?

Regards

Guy (Agricola)
