15 Januar, 2010 (16:14) | History, Politics | By: pooq

In his book „The Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire“ the writer Edward Luttwak is describing the strategical measures of Byzantine to survive more than a millenium in eternal war. Based on this book this post describes the basic situation. Byzantine always have been a comparibly weak empire as it lacked of large human resources […]

The Strategist

15 Januar, 2010 (15:35) | Politics | By: pooq

A „distant and safe“ country? This sounds like the kingdom of the elves far in the west, where they sail too when they are fed up with all the ongoing trouble in Middleearth. I could not have guessed more wrongly. This article is about New Zealand a boring bunch of islands in the middle of […]

Miep Gies was the woman who sheltered Anne Frank and her family during the time of Nazi terror. She died on Monday 11th. This made the author to write an obituary.

Under The Influence

Teasers are teasing me. So I do get to know that „The Small Business Majority […] and the Main Street Alliance […] gained prominence on Capitol Hill and at the White House“. And also there is a conference „to kill a proposed tax on large stock and derivative transactions“. So the most important think of […]

Hotline On Call

9 Januar, 2010 (14:56) | Politics | By: pooq

„Hotline on call“? – how about „Dial H for Hotline“? „Steele’s Book Timeline Doesn’t Fit“. Not the timeline of the content is in question but the timeline of writing the book. „Michael Steele said today he wrote the book before he took over the national party last January.“ We all know that there are several […]
