    For Rob and Kwozzie...

    This is probably the best performance I've ever heard of this song, and a good-quality video.

    I'm seeing much in the way of blankness.

    War is not futile. Occasionally, it's even necessary.

    However, as to Gallipoli, some historians point to the experience as a defining moment in the history of both Australia and New Zealand, perhaps the start of a truly national feeling for each, and separate from each other.

    And some historians Sir Winston's fingerprints all over that debacle. Haig tactics revisited but including the need to scale a high, near vertical cliff in the process.

    The high cliffs were not part of the plan. There were navigational errors efore the landing.

    Winston's plan was to open a second front, with Russia unlikely to stand long, or at least not long with Britain. Good plan. Poor execution.

    The NZ and presumably Aussie soldiers' attitude towards the British generals was of unbridled hate; the soldiers liked the Turks and to a lesser extent the Germans MORE than some of the British toffs who viewed colonials as cannon-fodder... at least that's how it seemed at times. OTOH we were BRITISH, which is not unlike being American these days...

    We lost about as many men at Passchendaele in three weeks as the US has lost in Iraq in three years.

    I rather like the idea of abolishing the State of Belguim and turning it into French and Dutch provinces...

    Forward Walloons!

    Four. Although the fourth section would be very small.

    Romansch, spoken mainly in the south-east.

    I lived down there for a year, and I'm not sure I ever heard it spoken.

    Ken Burn's film "The War" (about WW-II) on Monday talked about the surrender of the Philipines & of Coreggidor. 75,000 Filipino & US troops left for Camp O'Donnell, only about 54,000 reached it.

    So if Switzerland were to be separated and absorbed into the neighboring states as I had previously proposed, then who would take the Romansch sector?

    Geographically, probably Austria.

    This is of little interest to the British.

    Except that most British retail websites now appear to be based in Luxemburg or Switzerland or E. Germany.

    An important point here would be that Switzerland has more trouble with people want to join them than they do with anyone wanting to split them up.
