The Iron Dome, which was built with US taxpayer dollars, really encourages Israel to take a hardline and not negotiate.

Not really, since it has been well over a decade since Israel has done any serious negotiations with the Palestinians. But that's because they've realized that even if they do manage to browbeat the Chiefs into signing away Palestinian land and accept a few beads in exchange for living on a reservation, the Braves will go on the warpath anyway and refuse to accept the injustice done them.

Can't you people admire countries which are... a little more exciting and a little less bourgeois?

I'm not sure what you mean.

Should I be excited over Liberia, because they're so anti-bourgeois that there ran an warlord around with the name general Butt Naked?

Should I be excited over Venezuela because they run out of toilet paper?

Should I get excited over Greece, because... well because Greece are Greece and they can be called many thing but bourgeois are not one of them.

I like countries with low poverty, low corruption and trains and buses which run around the time you expect them. That may be "bourgeois".

The fourth- or fifth-worst President since World War II (normal).

Which 4 are below Carter for you? Obama, Bush Jr, Ford LBJ, and Nixon?

Yes

Bravo. Nothing more to say but bravo.

My original plans weren't to attack France, but to provoke a confrontation with Austria instead. I wasn't feeling confident about Germany, considering this happened pre-Russia and I didn't know Cranberry had good war orders, and my big short-term goal was to expand to all of the Dalmatian coast (plus Fiume) and Trentino. I had plans to invade Albania as well in order to create a chokehold in the Adriatic Sea for that, but then Austria got overthrown so I put those on the backburner. The best chance for this would have been in a Russian war without Britain, but then again you'd abandon your plans too if you had the Royal Navy 100 miles from your coast.

Essentially, from the moment Cranberry made the Alsace-Lorraine deal, I was collaborating with Russia to rope France and Britain into a Great War among similar OTL lines. Of course, that failed because the entire world would have been up my ass. Then, I started collaborating with America in Venezuela, the Ottomans in Morocco, and once Cranberry got into the "feel" of the game, I jumped in on the Entente side of the war and turned my eyes to France. I was actually eyeing Egypt and Sudan, and of course, Malta, from Britain, and my general strategy was to hold the Mediterranean Sea, and cut off Britain from there.

I don't support the death penalty (normal European), but why don't they use nitrogen gas asphyxiation like in factory farms, as opposed to injecting people with whatever bizarre concoctions they think might work?

Because it would make people think of the Holocaust, if they gassed people. In fact there are many different methods which would easier, cheaper, more efficient and more human than the methods used now, but because the pro-capital punishment people think that the American people are fragile flowers, who can't deal with the death penalty unless it's made to look pretty and clinical, we're seeing this jokes of execution.
