Considering there was a post about Pokemon GO, ...
I'd like some advice about if it would be good to purchase a Russian Dragon's of Tarkir booster box for about $100 USD? Shipping prices don't matter, as my friend is in Russia at the moment (he is the one actually buying this, and is wondering if he should).

Statistics for ModernDiplomacyII
Is there any statistics about how common is the win by solos. Which nations has the most wins, and who the least wins. And statistics like that.
And also, in general, which variants would you say are the most played, and why?. Any thoughts?.

You say that you back a coup until it succeeds, krellin. Obama did the correct political move here. What happens if he backs it and he fails? He just burned a bridge with the second largest army in NATO

Well the coup was unlike any other previous coups. It was lousy, it was slow and it was brutal. From the first moment, it was very likely that they fail. As soon as the initial shock-wave is gone, it was more or less clear for everyone that these guys did this coup with no support from any major players in the parliament. As soon as the minority parties condemn the coup, which happened really soon after people realised that the tanks on Bosporus was not there for any security reason (many people thought there is a bomb or possible Paris-like bomb attack initially) but to make a coup.

It is also the first time in the history of Turkish republic that the Parliament is directly bombed.

Many people now suspect that this was a well staged theatre of Erdogan. Anyone who wants to do a coup knows that now it is Erdogan, that is the head player, although he is just the head of the republic. They did nothing against him, he, on the contrary, turned it into a PR stunt. He went to Istanbul first, called people to get on the streets, etc. Now he arrests anyone who just might have something against him, including those who helped him against the coup...

It was also very unacceptable that Erdo comes out and claims to be the head commander of the Military forces. This title was not used since the first president and it was not meant to be used as the chain of command in the military was already reinstated and he has no military history, unlike the first president who was the commander of the resistance against Ottoman empire and occupying forces in Turkey's independence war. So there is a certain number of people who thinks this was just huge theatrics to reinforce the "Authoritarian Sultanate" dreams of Erdo.

This is not Erdogan's senario. If didn't get intelligence, it would be made later and more brutal. Intelligence services learned coup.

If that's the case, then Erdogan had the hotel he was staying at bombed, the country's biggest airport that he flew into bombed, and the Parliament building bombed. That's on the same scale as the "Bush did 9/11" thing would be.

Well Malcolm Turnbull is visiting the Governor General, so an election is imminent, and probably a "double dissolution" election with the full Senate being dissolved, not half as is usually the case

UK Politics
We have had an elected Head-of_State since forever, we've had a Prime Minister elected with something like 25% of electorate and now he is standing down to be replaced by new PM that no one elected. Home of democracy? I think not.

Ban all Trucks
Without trucks, the terrorist couldn't possibly have carried so many explosives. Trucks are weapons of mass destruction and must be banned. Goodness, at least do background checks on the truckers.

Meaning of "no in-game messaging"
First-time player question: if a game has a "no in-game messaging" setting, does that mean there's no communication between the players at all? Or is there just a specific kind of messaging the players should/should not use?

*Apologies if this is answered somewhere in the rules or another thread; couldn't find it specifically anywhere.
