In your opinion, Foofie, when does a country/region "historically belong" to some state?
What would be the time period, both, when this period started and how long it lasted?
Does this apply to other regions/countries as well?
You are ignoring my posting,
where I said that "better minds than mine" consider Crimea belonging to Russia.
I wonder if Russia looks upon the Crimean Peninsula
the same as Argentina saw the Falklands in 1982.
I enjoy this immensely,
since now Europeans understand how it is to be a civilized,
law abiding citizen, (aka, "timid Jew"), in a world of belligerant bullies.
When I was in NY,
I was in the company of many Jews, especially in Mensa,
who were ROBUST
in the exercise of their freedom of speech.
Thay were not shy about letting u know their opinions.
I never deemed any of them to be "timid"
(except my Jewish girlfriend, Marilyn,
who was shy until
she got to know u. Then, she was VOCAL
I once asked u whether u consider yourself to be timid,
but u did not choose to tell me.
