RE: Antwort: [iwar] Just a simple question--part-2
- It is a teaser all right, but I guess it should not tease a wrong way.
The 85-88 gap is just to make things crystal clear, and at the same time to
challenge the world watchers (members of IW think tank) not take into
account of the political turmoil in Russia that led to its withdrawal from
Afghanistan and subsequent breakup of former Soviet Union into many small
states, and at the same time birth of the European Union Concept (late 88,
but still within the period), but I have distracted from the main topic
relating to IW.
Coming back to it, I would like you to visit these sites that I have
mentioned below, and then tell me where do you see Russia, Europe or Asia.
My choice of these sites were mainly due to their popularity and supposed
authenticity as reliability is key to their business. The misconception
(please allow me to use this word) presented by www.lonelyplanet.com shows
Russia to be a part of Europe, technically making Europe larger than US, now
this is something to marvel at.
At this stage, I would ask the members of this group to find reasons for
this "change". I do have my views, but it would be worthwhile to hear
something from all of you.

Nice teaser, Ozair.
I figured something like Asia and Europe, ever since
they sold Alaska to the US. I think sometime throughout
20th century there were some claims to Antarktika, too,
in relation with the science camps.
The 85-88 gap thrills me.
