  1. Stalingrad was won before D-Day though if i'm not mistaken, and no more than 1/4 of the german forces were on the western front at any one time. The russians did by far the majority of the fighting. If the americans had stayed out we wouldnt all be speaking german, it would probobly be russian!
  2. well it's Nixon's own fault for pegging it to such a variable resource such as Oil... of course oil is going to fluctuate, you've enjoyed the economic benefits of it being friendly towards you, now you should live with the economic downside rather than invading countries who refuse to do what you want. I'm glad i know you M-S, it gives me so much more faith in the American system to know it actually has intelligent people in the military system who can see further than the next 'threat' to home security. I won't believe all these conspiricies about 9/11, no matter how screwed up the american system is i refuse to believe a government in the public eye that much would do that just to protect its oil interests, maybe i'm naive, but i have to have some faith in humanity... But anyway, condolences to those privates M-S, always sad when people have to die for causes like this... Just lets hope karma does exist eh.
  3. heh, well american history books are different to english ones then... everyone knows the russians won it, the americans just helped out and made it go much faster. if the US hadn't have joined it would probobly have lasted a couple of years longer, and left most of Europe in commmunist hands once the war was over... The americans were importent in winning it, for the simple fact that Britain would have gone bankrupt if it wasnt for the loans from america (which we only finally finished paying back last year by the way...), and the western front did take pressure off the beleguered russians allowing them to finally get the advantage in the east. I was never really taught much about Japan, but i'm sure the russians and the chinese could have taken them on too.
  4. *hands Validaire a pair of new socks* here you go, i stole them off that guy over there, oh look, i think he wants to come and talk to you... *runs off as a large 18st rugby player comes and punishes Validaire for his socks...* i wish my room didnt smell so much (thats alot of garlic...)
  5. It had been four days at sea now, and Commander Framp gazed out over the prow of his boat. They must have been about halfway there by now, it was good that they had been kept quiet so far, any interference from foreign powers would have caused much annoyance, especially in tis central crowded zone of Europa. But it was due to heat up soon, the other natiosn could not have missed his fleet in the central seas of Europa, and must be shifting in their seats, despite not having voiced their concerns already. They surely would after King Phil's proclemation today. The ten giant transport ships behind him took up alot of space, and he felt uncomfortable with only three naval ships as convoy, but he had been promised a second fleet would be sent once he had established a front in this Zone 97 area. He hoped General Burns was true to his word, he had no reason to doubt him. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- King Phil VII stepped out onto the balcony of his palace and observed the crowd below, handpicked of course, couldnt have the normal rabble gathering below, couldnt risk anything today, it all had to go well. "People of Philia! Today is a great day for our nation! today we will start to rebuild the what we once were! Our population has vastly outgrown our means, you have all seen the way our people are living, it is not acceptable for a nation with our history and stature. Which is why I have initiated a great expension program for our naiton! As I speak now, there is a fleet of our ships sailing towards the savage region of Zone 97 with 10000 civilians ready to begin colonisation of this savage nation! This will begin the final stages of the restructuring of Philia, relocating thousends of our population, people shall no longer be forced to live in these shanty towns, but shall assist in the forwarding of Civilisation and the greatness of Philia!" Phil looked down at the now cheering crowd, smiling at the cameras at the back, the rest of Europ would soon know about this, soon know that the sleeping giant had awoken...
  6. King Phil shifted in his chair, It was over a year now since his return to power. After the chaos left by the assassination of his father it had taken some sharp diplomacy and the power of his second in command, General Burns. when he had returned from his exile in the north he had not expected the country to be in such a bad way, he needed the generals power and resources to reclaim what was his. Now he had it, over a year later Philia was returning to the great power it had once been. Now, with a population of over 3 Billion, and much of the nation living in tiny cramped shanty hovels in the remains of the still half-ruined cities, something needed to be done, a Grand gesture, one that would show the Hand of Philia was great again, and also one to ease the troubles of the people. He chuckled as he stood, moving over to the small table where his pitcher of wine stood, he poured some out and sniffed it, amazing some of these old Philian Vintages survived the collapse really, but still, there was work to be done. He pressed the intercom button on the wall, 'Sophie, tell the General to come in please' as the door opened and closed he motioned the general to sit on one of the red chairs, as he took his place behind the desk. "General, It is time. Are the ships ready?" Burns nodded silently, he seldom spoke unless necessary. "And the first Shipment?" "rounded up and waiting in transport ships in the Slavenmouth. They were be told they are going to a new home, most seemed happy, anything would be better than that Pit they were living in before." Phil smiled, good, Two birds with one stone. Hopefully this new colonisation era would herald a new dawn, and would be able to nip a new threat in the bud. The district to be part of the first colonisation was not picked by chance. There had been some reports of disease spreading round that area... in a nation where the people are as tightly packed as they are now, any small outbreak like this could turn into plague...
  7. Right, after over a year of absence from the RP worl of Europa, i think it is about time to get back into the swing of things. from what i can gather, the RP world of Europa has come down to a series of Civil wars, invading countries for more space, and groups of countries who all have similer aims in keeping peace and being 'nice' to each other. now in the past Philia was renowned for being a peacekeepng nation, who wasnt that agressive (as far as i can remember, it was a while ago! lol) but now i want change that, just to shake things up a little. now, PHilia has been silent for a long while, other than a little RP a while ago beginning the restructuring of the nation, which i never finished. I am about to start anther RP saying what happened. I also wish my nation to now become more agressive, my first action is going to be my attempts to 'colonise' the savages of area 97. (I know its a bit far, but my nation is kinda boxed in! lol, i was origionally thinking about petitioning the ruler of Akiiryu to allow me to move through his territory to colonise 24... but i thought that was asking a little too much of him ) i fully expect much of Europa to be outraged at this, and not even i am sure how it will turn out, i havnt exactly plannned much yet, but i have a large nation (3.3 Billion) so my army isn't exactly tiny, even if i have been quiet for a long long time...
  8. granted, you shall never tire again! unfortunately this does not protect you from that nuclear war you just started, especially the nuke heading directly for you right now... I wish i didnt feel so ill right now
  9. (hso4 isnt tea ) granted, an end to world peace, welcome to the new nuclear war, the first shot landed on your houseand destroys everything you know and love... so much for wishes... i wish for another bacon sandwich
  10. Bun throne? are you referring to me there MS? lol Wellsy (although i know he wont post just to spite me...)
  11. really? the Mongols had most of mainland asia admittadly, but i dont recall hearing of them having any boats, or crossing into Africa. they could have taken europe if Ghengis hadn't died at such an inconvenient time, but they never did. i think the British was larger, we held Canada for a start, which is the 3rd largest country in the world (by sq mile anyway) behind Russia and Brazil i think. As well as large swathes of africa and australaisia, which the mongols cannot claim to hold, and also India and southern asia. congrats on the 600 though mate youll be catching up with my 2400 soon
  12. granted, unfortuantely you didnt specify where, so it snows in Norway, but no-where near where you are. i wish for a cup of teeeaaa!
  13. that just shows what a great leader Alexander was, he just didn't plan well for his legacy. British Empire, largest empire there ever was *Phil VII stands proud
  14. nay! long live Sussex, and the south coast! yay Chichester
