The Alter of Avarice.

#1. Jackboot is when invaders and occupiers stomp on foreign soil .

#2. It is your country's comeuppence. Dubya was the one who declared a ' crusade ' ie fight  ALL Muslims to the death.

Look at the unholy scramble among the 15 British sailors for the fast buck . A cool half million pound is on the card. Where oh where has principles and altruism gone, I ask you ? With that sort of " encouragement " even little old me can provide a passable story to the editor's liking and agenda, spiced liberally with ingredients of his choosing and with a little additional " oiling of the machine " may even garnish it with some little porkies as well. See how liberal capitalism works  !!  Well done Britain. The world can truely see the stiff upper lip of freedom , transparency and democracy now.

===>  I hope that mengzhi is able to freely associate this term to any possible mainland China invasion/occcupation of Taiwan.

I despair.

Emu the ignorant,

Are you talking about INNER MONGOLIA or Mongolia ? They are not the same, similar or slightly related. It is like Spencer station form Spencer Gulf , matey. OK I know " They all look allike " yeah ?

When you discover this thing called a map, tell me and I will continue your education : geography this time.

Actually I am talking about "greater" Mongolia. Yes we do know that there is an independent nation called Mongolia, and we know there is a region of China called "Mongolia", AKA "Inner Mongolia".
Now do the Mongolians from Inner Mongolia "look alike" the people in Mongolia proper?

Surely there's some ethnic, linguistic and historical link, correct me if I'm wrong, Mengzhi.
Maybe it's a bit like the Kurds' situation being split between, Turkey, Iraq and Iran?

Why are some Mongolians independent, and others are a simply a minority group in another land?
