"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" - Evelyn Beatrice Hall, in the book 'The Friends of Voltaire'
Coupled with the powers of Origin, my wallet was a mere Serbia to Steam's German Empire and Origin's Austria-Hungary.
The Emperor awakes from his dream, a single tear drops from his face and splashes upon the Golden Throne. He thinks to himself:

I made a stoopy. I should have put LT-40.
Is it the LT vz. 40?

Also, according to the info in the linked image, no photos of the prototype or its remains actually exist.
I've never heard of this movement, so meh.
Fixed it for you.
Yeah, they've sent a destroyer, the USS Truxtun, to the Black Sea which is joining an aircraft carrier strike group and Turkey has scrambled jet fighters in response to Russian reconnaissance aircraft. There have been four, I think, F-15s sent to Lithuania.
The best result would be the withdrawal of Russian forces and a plebiscite held in Crimea under the supervision of impartial UN observers to guarantee that they are fair. No need for each side to continue the d*ck waving contest.
This debate gave my biology teacher depression.
My eyes... they burn. Must claw out... the pain
It depends really. If the protest is about something worthwhile, as those in the Ukraine and Turkey are, then it is more reasonable for them to increase in scale. Personally, I support the Ukrainian and Turkish protesters for reasons that I could write about for hours but shan't. Violence is not always right, but it sure as heck is expedient.
Also out of curiosity, where about in Europe did you live if you don't mind my asking?
I have no quibbles with what you've said save for the what happens in Europe doesn't affect America. It does. European nations are the US's staunchest allies. For example, in Iraq: Round 2, nations involved in the war from Europe include everyone from the UK and Italy to Estonia and Hungary. The second biggest contributor to said war was the UK with 46,000 troops. The US sent 165,000 roughly at peak. If these European countries did not contribute to Iraq, the US would likely have had to contribute more troops to this conflict leading to a bigger cost on its part. Not to mention the fact that, the last time I checked, only France was willing to trawl into Syria with the US, knocking out the additional European soldiers that were present in Iraq, as well as the blue water navy of the UK.
To factor economics into this, the US invests about three times more into EU nations than it does into all of Asia while the EU nations invest several times more into the US than they do into India and China combined. If, for whatever improbable reason, the USA and European nations become enemies politically or militarily, that's a lot of investment that's at risk of being wasted. Generally the two continents are inter-reliant on each other; the USA has massive military and economic power while Europe is the ally that ensures, so long as the politics is right, that America has the extra manpower, money and political support to drop large mounds of faeces on evil dictators or terrorists around the world and do so without major opposition from modern nations. The best example of this would be the Cold War, Europe was the equivalent of a 'swing state' if Western Europe were pro USSR, bearing in mind their international relations in the form of overseas territories and the Commonwealth of nations (a sorely underused political force), then it is more likely that the USSR would come out on top as world superpower.
I should add, the USA most certainly does not deserve the terror attacks from militant muslims just as Britain did not deserve the 7/7 bombing, Lee Rigby most certainly did not deserve the cowardly attack he suffered, Denmark did not deserve the attempts to sabotage its economy after an image of muhammad was drawn and published and the Indians didn't deserve to have bombs placed under vehicles in Orissa intending to blow up police officers.
My history teacher was in New York and was asked by a waiter, once he realised he was British, 'Well, d'you want us in or out buddy?'. We had a discussion as a group in class, only 3 of us including my teacher, and we decided that we'd sooner have the USA involving itself and leading to positive change through unrefined means (see the removal of dictator Saddam Hussein; it was positive but involved the false WMD Iraq, or Afghanistan; some good work is being done but the people we're leaving in control of the country are unpopular dirtbags). Anyhow, my personal dislike for the United States is the relative lack of education of the people there. I have been to the US, more specifically New York. I was asked by several people where I was from due to my rather unusual (or sexy) refined English accent. Anyhow, most of the comments were rather silly. Things like "Why don't you just invade France and finish the rivalry once and for all?", "What's it like having a Queen rule the country instead of a proper government?" and probably the golden one; "Why don't you let Scotland be independent? I mean, they practically are already!"
This sort of lack of aware of other nations and their politics grates on me. I make it my job to know about Europe. I can name every country in it, west to east and their capitals. On top of that, I am aware of American politics and can name a fair number of states. I also know about American history as well as European. While most Americans on here act civilly and are intelligent, there are plenty who believe the USA can do no wrong and has shouldered every burden alone throughout history. That's why I have a slight distaste for the USA.
Boris: They're so kawaii!
I'm glad to see that no one is surprised by this. "Oh you have 'insert object America wants or doesn't want others to have/use', only way to deal with that is superior firepower. Not like we have diplomats right?"
Do you... do you hear the voices too? The voices talking.. ABOUT RELIGION!?
Save me please. My atheism forces me to debate but every inch of my brain tells me that all the religious and non religious folk are arguing over is which side of the Titanic to jump over.
Also, it wasn't just the religious that were targeted; the overall death toll is placed between 40,000 to 100,000, of which only 6,832 were members of the clergy. The following White Terror, which killed between 150,000 to 400,000 targeted any opposition to the Right Wing victors which included Atheists, Generals, Intelligentsia and political leaders who had supported the Madrid government. So overall, lots of people died but it was for political reasons. I have yet to find a mention of it being atheist driven.
You would be correct in assuming that I haven't heard of this. However some quick research suggests that the Church and religious were targeted by Left Wing rioters as the Church supported the Right Wing. So far I have not found any mention of Atheism. However, the link you provided only goes to Chapter 5 so I'll have to look a bit deeper for the full story.
Definition of militant as an adjective: adjective
favouring confrontational or violent methods in support of a political or social cause.
So yes there are militant atheists in the sense that we can be quite confrontational but there are none/very few who use violent methods. The last time I heard about an atheist flying a plane into a building was..um.. never, while radical militant muslims did that in 2001. The last time atheists tried to plunder the Middle East was... again never yet we've all heard of the Crusades right? So yes, atheism can be verbally militant but has never, as to my knowledge, been physically and violently militant.
One thing America has going for it is Allies. The Russians ****** off a lot off people by being ******** and occupying their nations in the Cold War. America was all 'FREEDOM, YEAH!' which kinda won people over.
Those lies of WMDs were scarier than 'Oh Assad's gassing civvies. Been there done that in 1914-18'
You should keep this. Deffo this
It's weird to say it wasn't an act of terroism really. They were spouting drivel about toppling the Government, shouting 'Allahu Akhbar(not sure of the spelling' and ,according to the news, were planning on killing responding police officers. They created fear and anger to push a political opinion (that of toppling the government and trying to get us to pull out of the mid-east). That is the definition of a terrorist act. It doesn't need bombs to be one. These individuals are scum. I'd love to see the look on their faces when their fellow prison inmates come knocking once they realise who they are.
I don't believe America should just bull-rush them, we saw how well that worked out in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. The international community should ignore them. If they make any threats of violence, we respond in kind. Not actual violence, just a bolstering of American/NATO/UN fleet presence and posting troops along the border to reassure South Korea and intimidate North Korea into submission. They're a small nation with 'little man syndrome'. Besides, China has already condemned several of NK's missile tests, so it seems likely that with time, China will become fed up of them.
It's a Fallout 2 reference. I'm surprised nobody got it.
Well, technically.... its a thingy.
Yep, some Massachusetts colonists were puritans that had been kicked out of England for being too religious.

Very minor but the Corporal Degnan/Bearded British soldier is missing hands again... lol. But the brown battledress worn by the other soldiers also sort of comes through the white coat he has. Also on occasion, a halftrack upgraded with a .50 cal gunner will lose the gunner if a squad is removed from it. Minor I know, but every little helps right?

It's great what people can do with an idea and a little motivation.
Yes, they are the citadel guard.
Damn they look great. Gonna download the full mod on saturday as it is a big *** download.
Wow wow wowy!
I agree with Okatakio. Both sides look great. The only problem is who to play as first?
Reminds me of a certain film.
Just like the films!!!!!!!
It does. You said, and I quote, 'It's their belief that religion is wrong and belief in God is wrong. They persecute on that basis.' I've just addressed that issue by saying, 'Actually, you're wrong, they targeted religion because it was a threat to the stranglehold of their dictatorship.'
Which image would that be? The cow-f**ker one? Because that insult has nothing to do with race. It is, however, highly insulting to the religion of Hinduism. If it is something else that I missed during my brief absence, then I apologise.
America is officially a secular state (though religion does have an impact on politics) while the UK is classed as ambiguous as in religion play no official role in the state save for traditional ceremony. Therefore those examples are rather null.
Just to add; religion was seen as a symbol of the old and widely disliked Russian Empire, hence why it wasn't quite as effective a method of rallying the people.
They enforce this for the same reason that Stalin did. It's not in the name of Atheism but, rather, because the Church, Synagogue, Mosque and any other religious institution provides an alternate method of leadership and thought than that of their dictator in charge; be it Stalin or Kim Jong. This alternate source of leadership would teach that a God(s) are a power above the dictator which threatens the system as people would fear hell more than the firing squad. Keeping people's fears down to Earth keeps their perceived leader as the one on planet Earth.
Two can play at that game: Indonesian muslims call for an Atheist civil servant to be beheaded-http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/archive/calls-to-behead-indonesian-atheist-alexander-aan/
Also, the USSR attacked the Church in the name of their communist ideology as it provided an alternative teaching and leadership to Comrade Stalin and was a symbol of the old and hated Russian Empire. Edit: How do you post HTMLs as links like that? I know that makes me sound stupid.
I'm not a fan of the censorship either but it has nothing to do with racism. From what I've heard it was because the comments were turning trollerific and angry. Anyhow, racism hasn't, isn't and never will be tolerated in the Atheist community and group on ModDB.
Only someone whose argument is collapsing brings up the race card.
OUR STREETS CAN'T CONTAIN PROTEST OF THIS MAGNITUDE!!
I would say that its 'Atheist Extremism' as Evanp hasn't called for anti-Hindu militias to be formed or anything. Still, the comment is a low blow.
Poor Eesti :(

I always love how the Scots complain about the rest of the UK. Even though Scottish MPs get to make decisions about England and English MPs don't get to make decisions about Scotland unless its a national decision that affects everyone.
Russia reminds me of the Ottoman Empire around WW1. It was the weakest of all the Empires but it was still a force to be reckoned with. It had little power projection outside of its sphere of influence and control, but the power it did have was fairly substantial.
I would say that Russia is more powerful than that. Maybe more close to Austria-Hungary. Definitely not the weakest, but definitely not the strongest either and it lacked the ability to project its power globally in any serious manner, though its control in a local area was significant.
Because they wouldn't be able to afford free prescriptions and University (amongst other things) without the extra £2 billion they have spent on them, sourced from the rest of the UK?
It seems that Gandhi has developed nukes.
I reckon we'll see new members and associate states come along pretty soon. As for its mission? It'll stay the same. Defence against whatever 'other' attacks them. What will change is who that other is. Currently that 'other' is potentially Russia.
I do think, however, that NATO will become pretty Eurocentric again.

We only bombed it when things got rather messy. You know, ethnic cleansing messy. And as part of a UN task force I should add.
I think that's the joke about the internet accounts; Russia has very little idea of what its doing or how to do it.

I tend to avoid Wikipedia because of everybody's lack of trust in it. And when it comes to the media, the best you can do is check more than one news outlet to see if they are generally in agreement.
I'm still against Russia occupying Crimea. For the same reasons I would be against India, Pakistan, Poland or Romania occupying London; just because people who share the ethnicity of your nation's majority live in an area in large numbers, does not give you the right to occupy that area. I would understand if the Ukrainians had willingly given up Crimea but they haven't.
Russia's actions are in direct violation of the Budapest Memorandum, which they signed. They are in the wrong. There is no way around it.
But that hasn't happened until Russian troops marched into Crimea. If you can provide some evidence from relatively neutral sources, I'm willing to change my view.
Edit: I just searched various terms equating to 'anti-Russian, Ukraine'. The only stuff that came up is related to the events that the occupation of Crimea sparked off. Also, about the EU; f*ck it. I hate it. It needs gone and gone quick. Rebuild it properly from the ground up with nations joining based on the people's votes.
You know, a group of Sudeten Germans were killed by Czech border police in 1939. Those poor Sudeten Germans were helped out by a really nice Austrian called Hitler.
The point is that anyone can claim that they are helping an ethnic group in a neighbouring country. Truth is, that group doesn't need help; its an excuse to land grab from a neighbouring sovereign nation.
Put it this way; if there was a revolution in Romania, would it be acceptable for Hungary to invade? After all, there are a large amount of Hungarians and Szekely Hungarians living in Central and Western Romania.
Also, the Russians are not 'fighting for their lives' nor do they make up half of Ukraine's population. They make up about seventeen percent of the population according to a 2001 census.
I called this shiz right at the start. I mean, there's no way that people could genuinely believe that Ukraine was run by Nazis and that Stalin was a 'true friend of the people, a role that Putin is trying to take on'.
To be quite frank, its rather pathetic. I expected more from you Russia.
True. I guess I'll have to give the PC versions a try. I do agree with the plot thing though. It was a bit... ramshackle.
I should clarify; awful combat=having to mash the attack button for standard attacks. It actually hurt after a while due to the large health amounts and multiple waves. I could deal with those issues if I had the Origins 'select enemy to continuously deliver standard attacks to it'.
Mashing the attack button was pretty awful. I think it may lead to arthritis in my later life.
I don't particularly care anymore. Most of the franchises I enjoy have collapsed under their own success. Mass Effect 3's cop out ending, Dragon Age 2's awful combat, constant re-hashing of Call of Duty and Elder Scrolls:Online+monthlypayments. Need I mention the issue's with launch date Rome 2, some of which still persist as well as the buy factions DLC.
While not necessarily bad games, they've lost the features that I particularly enjoyed about them. Now I just wait for bargains on Steam rather than keep up to date with new releases.
Government regulation would prevent the low grade stuff with god awful chemical mixtures. Of course, if it were to be legalised, it should be used in moderation as long term regular use may cause paranoia and make an individual more prone to schizophrenia. Also, rules about things like driving under the influence should be updated if it does get legalised... CLOSE DEM LOOPHOLES.

I was trying to address it in relation to war, particularly how it propagates them rather than starting them. That does not diminish your point though. It is true after all.
(continue) Ultimately, its unfair to say Hitler was completely Christian or completely not Christian, due to his occult and pagan views influencing him in his later years. However, the Catholic church did play a role in assisting Hitler. Dissolution of the Catholic centre party at the Church's behest helped the Nazi's gain a majority in the Reichstag. The church also ordered the celebration of his birthday and the infamous Nazi/Fascist escape plan codenamed Ratlines was committed by Catholics.
Oh and, in case you think I'm a closet Nazi, my copy of Mein Kampf is purely for University study. Just a quick disclaimer.
(continue) How can our images be anti-free thinking? Allowing people to post whatever in relation to the group's topic and within the boundaries of the site's rules are about as open as you can get. Again, early images I can't account for as I stated previously.
The Hitler wasn't a Christian is an interesting point that I partially share. He was born a Roman Catholic in Austria, a trait most Austrian's shared with him. Most of the Nazi party were Catholic too. Indeed, evidence of this can be seen in Mein Kampf (Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord) and in various speeches (such as on from 1922, a bit long to post here but an excerpt should do;'As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice, and if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people').
While initially a Christian, it was not necessarily his primary reason for his disdain of Jews. The Catholic church had propagated anti-Semitism for some time. This propagation likely influenced Hitler and Catholic Nazis along with the common people, but a belief in a supreme race of Germanic people was the prime reason for this hatred of Gypsies, Slavs and Jews.
While he was a Roman Catholic in at least the early days, he did develop a sort of paganism that he integrated into some aspects of ideology. Of note is the appointment of neo-pagan Alfred Rosenberg as the official Nazi ideologist.
I can agree with you on the whole Christianity causing wars thing. Because, to be frank, while it has been used to propagate or influence war, most wars have been over territory or resources or because they just can be fought.
I haven't actually ever condemned HinduMan. I've criticised and disagreed with his methods, but I have never said 'Stop Hinduman, you're awful' or words to that effect. If I've come across that way then I apologise.
On the causing offense front, I share the opinion of Stephen Fry;
'It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so ******* what."
I see no reason to respect your religion. But mocking religion is different to mocking people. While I can't account for ALL the images on the page, due to having not always been a member and having taken a 2 or 3 year break from moddb, that is the general trend in the images.
I have to say that I agree with this idea. While that is not to say the Crusaders are innocent of any wrongdoing. We generally consider the Allies to be the 'good guys' but was Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne etc. necessary? No side is fully free of guilt, rather, it is generally little bit more right on one side than the other. In this case, the Crusaders, at least at first, were fighting to help their Spanish and French brothers and aid their Orthodox cousins in Byzantium. A short look at what happened in the time afterwards can show you what the Turks tried to do and nearly achieved. After swallowing Byzantium, they pushed through Southern Europe and very nearly took Central Europe. They were stopped at Hungary only due to a coalition of Hungary, HRE, Poland and other forces.
You cannot fully absolve the Turks of guilt, just as you cannot say that the only reason radical muslims today kill people is because of the Western World.
What you call garbage is satire and comedy. We make light humour out of religion because we can and we find it funny. Unlike you, we don't post images with questions intended to incite a flame war or to discredit the character of individuals that belong to a certain group.
As for the topic, you could see the bible as pro life, but due to the lack of abortions back around the time period that the bible was written and inspired from, chances are there is no specific message as there wasn't much of a choice except for hoping that you don't die in childbirth.
I wasn't saying you were, I was explaining that those you claim are being 'bashed' are usually bashed because they do that. I apologise for not being clear, it wouldn't let me edit my post.
This provides basic, average and high levels of overview on the state of scientific consensus regarding global warming.
Also, the 3% are usually not bashed, just looked at with disbelief and then presented with evidence. Also, this 'bashed on' and 'absolute truth' thing. Science does this thing called weighing up the evidence. In this case the evidence points to human contribution of global warming.
If you fly in the face of all the evidence and sing 'la la la' with your fingers in your ears and your eyes closed, as the 3% generally do, then expect to be ridiculed to an extent.
I don't get why people don't accept it. I understand people arguing over the rate of it occurring but the principle is simple really; humans burn stuff. Burning stuff releases CO2. Sun rays enter through the atmosphere to the Earth's surface which warms the Earth. Normally most heat would be radiated away from the Earth. CO2 blocks some of this. Extra CO2 means more heat blocked and re-radiated to Earth. Thus the Earth heats up more. Of course, other gases also contribute such as; methane, nitrous oxide and CFCs.
I'm surprised nobody thinks that telling/ordering/forcing if necessary the Russians to leave and then having UN observers from neutral member states observe referendums in the Crimea region would be a good idea. That way, according to Putin's statements, everyone would win. The Russians would get Crimea and the rest of the concerned parties would be satisfied that everything was done fairly. Best way to avoid war.

They also did this thing where every muslim was called to kill a guy who wrote a book they didn't like. And where they put gays to death and have virgins raped by veteran soldiers so they can be put to death for a crime that they are being punished for. Very bloody liberal.
I know its not in service, my point was that it is still a valid and usable tank. Jordan still uses them and is developing unmanned turrets for them. As far as I'm aware, there are also still some in storage in the UK, though not in active use. Also, the only countries that use or have used them are Jordan and the UK.
Its not even that outdated; its still very usable. Just older and not as good as the Challenger 2. Of course, its look is pretty damned classy.
There are way too many issues that I hope will be addressed in the future to mention here.
I suppose my main point would be space exploration. I would like to see the human race building colonies on other planets and mining resources from any metal rich asteroids that we can. Also, renewable/nuclear energy usage would be nice too.
I'd probably be dead by the time any of this happens though though. Yay average life expectancy of 79 years.

I couldn't give two hoots about religious imagery in public places. As long as its not funded by the government of course.

Of course, if its ridiculous like a carved limestone statue of Jesus with a massive dong poking the Flying Spaghetti Monster in the face with it, then I'll have to protest.

We have, but-mostly-I-Councilor-Sparatus- of-the-Turian-Hierarchy -who-even-are-the-other-two- I-would-prefer-working-with-a-Hanar -or-sweaty-Volus, have dismissed that claim.
Launch. Everything. Upload.wikimedia.org
For god's sake, it's a fallen tree, not a bloody tank.
Commander Shepard, Alliance drag queen.
Sweet. This is making some nice progress.
Sweet Jesus. These are pretty beautiful.
We have failed, for the last time... *steps off edge of cliff*
Gentlemen, today is a sad day indeed. One of our brothers has lost his tank to those... things. Contact our allies and spread the word. Launch the nukes. All of them. May God have mercy on our souls.
I'm glad someone has the sense to understand this. Most, but not all, people are just like OMG I KNOW IT'S NAME AND IT'S RUSSIAN SO IT MUST BE GOOD!!!1ONE!!!
Tips, as in foreskin.
I see what you did there.
Maybe Mario with a trimmed 'stache and different clothes. Mother of god.
He sure seems to be compensating for something.
Don't move, don't even blink, he can smell the movement.
What tank? All I see is an advertisement and some flags attached to tree branches while two men sit near the top of the tree.
You can purchase some for less than a brand new ford focus.
It DOES come with an inbuilt kettle though.
I don't even know...
We Brits confuse the system even more by using Celsius and Miles (Mind 'splosion)!
In one night we have posted 30 pictures together. We truly love tanks.
All tanks cower in fear at the sight of the all-father Willie.
Because he is the father of all tanks, and as I said in the description, I see him to tank lovers as God is to Christians. Sometimes we need to be reminded of the origins of these machines that we love.
I believe it is also true.
Much more devoted than the Scottish lol they may wear kilts while playin bagpipes but camel bagpipes! Nothing can beat that. Also, I must say that I respect a country that maintains good relations with it's neighbours, as you say your leader is indeed a wise man. We need more people like him in this modern age. Peace in our time is a noble cause.
That's probably another reason Challenger 2 sales are pending. ._. Darn Americans. Can't even sell military equipment without them muscling in. But seriously, I never realised Britain had quite as good relations with Oman. Wikileaks said Oman helped Britain get some British sailors realeased from Iran because it has sway with Iran politically. Also, I never knew there was an Omani camel backed bagpipe band. That is truly epic.
Yeah, copying the design of a recon tank and kitting it out for infantry support isn't gonna end well.
Last time I spoke with my Dad (He is a Logistical civilian contractor in the british army, former Royal Engineer) he said that Britain sold about 40 of them to Oman with further sales pending to be completed after the current economic crisis.
You're from Oman, judging by that? I thought Britain sold Chieftans and Challenger 1s to your country? But yes, your country has the rare honour of bearing Challenger 2s in it's arsenal.
Yeah, I've read somewhere that the swelling of the shell often lead to the end of the barrel widening, creating a blunderbuss kind of shape, not as pronounced as that though.
Can't tell if witty comment, or serious about purchase.
"Stop picking your bum, we're movin' out"
Aye, but I heard that because each crewman was from a different branch of the army (infantry for the mgs, engineers for driving, artillery men for cannons etc.) they often argued over who had the most authority leading to inefficiency etc.
Tonight on 'COPS' we're rollin' in with the heavies!
What about them funny rhino things they use to pull battlewagons? Oh wait that's bfme2
Who are they?
This is so detailed that my computer may just grow legs and kick me square in the uhhh 'painful' area for downloading it!
The cloaking device is great. Oh wait its an empty display.
Nice touch that ship. Nice isn't good enough how about awesome?
