You are kidding me, right ?
Why post at length about Rome on the France board?
We are in the middle of a war over here in Paris and you are worried about the location of my posts ?
Everything is relative.
Where in the world is Wilfrid ?
Where are you, what time is it and what year is it there ?
You're clearly not in my rabbit hole nor are you in my foxhole.
What makes you so sure that Rome is not a part of France ?
Napoleon I annexed it.
Napoleon III garrisoned troops there and protected it as a vassal state.
It's about to become a vassal state again.
Do you consider Rome German instead ? Or Franco-German ?
Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who knows what's going on in the world.
Maybe I'm just ahead of my time. Maybe I should just go back to the future.
Economic war is under way here in Europe. Sovereign boundaries are being rewritten as we speak.
I don't think you have a real good idea what's actually going on on the ground.
Here is the European landscape as I see it.
1. Greece has been enslaved. She is on her hands and knees begging for her life as her bondholders are getting reamed but good.
2. Italy is now a vassal state. Germany and France are deciding her future.
3. France is not totally in the clear either.
4. God only knows what's going to happen to Spain.
Events are occurring at a maddening pace.
Events that would have been considered unbelievable, if not impossible, just months before now seem routine.
Let me attempt to put this in context for you.
For example, just tonight I saw stuff transpire that you will not believe.
Hence, I am going under oath and I am swearing to its veracity :
I'm going to sleep now. It's been a long and eventful day.
I, Chambo, situated in Paris, witnessed Germany annex Austria on the evening of December 8, 2011. I saw German power rising before my eyes. I saw swastikas the size of infields laid out before me. I saw Nazis. I hate Nazis but I saw them. Lots of them - in uniform in central Paris. You may find these goings-on despicable, as most people would, but it gets worse. Thousands were actually applauding these monsters. On their feet, applauding. Yes, the Nazis had guns drawn. These events occurred as described. It's in all the French papers and the citizenry is excited but not rebelling. And here is where it starts to get a little weird. This story is being reported here in Paris as a major coup for the United States. I cannot speak as to whether the US press is following this story at the moment. At the very least, it seems worthy of some modest coverage. To the very best of my knowledge, everything I have said here is true, so help me God.
Some people prefer to sit back and simply read about what's going on in the world.
I prefer to act. I prefer to get involved. I prefer to throw my hat into the ring. I prefer action on the world's stage.
No promises, but I hope to further comment on the above-described unusual state of affairs.
