    I guess for me I have to say it varies depending on what sorts of things I'm fixated on at any given times. When I'm in my history classes, usually there's a case that seems to go against the grain of the times. I usually get fixated on that case and start trying to figure out what factors might be involved. Right now, I'm fascinated with Czechoslovakia. Why did liberal attitudes take stronger hold there than in other parts of Eastern Europe? Questions like this come to me when I'm studying and I sort of get fixated.

    The Czech lands were Hapsburg possessions and were also once part of the Holy Roman Empire (Bohemia) so they developed more along the lines of central rather than eastern Europe. Now liberalism didn't exactly take hold in central Europe either but I think the above does help explain the differences between the Czechs and other Slavs.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    20 US dead, another 80 wounded.

    Between 1000-2000 Samis dead and twice that wounded....

    We left because we had no strong national interest to be there in the first place. We should have minded our own business and let them starve.

    As an aside, I worked for the commander of the Rangers in Mogadishu for a time. That was one big dude.
