  • Nick - good point. Quick question for you: How do you do that? I have never rep'ed anyone.

    Thanks!

      Click on the Yin Yang Circle on the top right of any of the posts by the Purist you think are any good . You just enter a phrase why you think that post was good, or just to say a general thank you . You can amend it to negative rep but I would not recomend that doing that in almost any case .

      • Well it's good to see the German offensive going so well. Must be really pleasing for you to see Russian troops on German soil!

        • I didn't read that in the Daily News! I have to get our newspaper services in shape.

          Just make sure to stop when you hit Berlin

            You must mean German troops on Russian soil.

            Always nice to be behind the news isn't it?

            Hey, how many Russians have died for the Brits so far?

              No, there are Russian troops occupying part of East Prussia. Did your generals not tell you about this humiliating reverse for the Wehrmacht?

                  Zero. We have not asked the Russians to do anything we are not prepared to do ourselves. We do not force or sacrifice our friends for personal means. We are willing to stop evil and are prepared to do what is necessary to restore Europe to peace.

                  • On German soil? Oh, a few acres of sandy Pine-barrens?

                    Meanwhile, what I told you would happen IS happening, once again.
                    Stalin's ill-gotten gains are being taken away from him, step by step, and we don't have far to go now.

                      Well, it's not our fault that German soil is so rubbish. :-)

                        Uh huh, look who's talking. At least our farmers have toilets.

                        Hey, will we be pickling this up again this weekend? Just wondering.

                          Toilets wired directly to the Panzer divisions, it appears ;-)

                          • Ok lets be nice . On the Napoleonic forum people do verbally abuse each other . However, it is done with respect, and letting the enemy know you do have that edge . Let us all pursue that route. Instead of abusing each other as enemies, which is easy, let us abuse each other as friends, which is far more difficult.

                            Given that we are playing a computer simulation I expect WW2 to have almost the same outcome as before.

                            Since the CW, Poles and Free French do not have a great deal of options at the moment there is no need to harangue them.

                            The Germans appear to be pusuing a new line of attack that I would never have considered .

                            Let us applaud our competitors decisions when they are great , and laugh at them (not the person) when they leave a little to be desired .

                              Ah, so you will be declaring war on Russia for their unprovoked and premeditated invasion of Poland. As well as Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland. Seems to me that you have sided with the country that has done more to disturb the peace of Europe then anyone else.

                              Let's watch that double standard kick in now.

                              • We have an agreement with Poland (as did France - you remember them? ) to stand by their side should they go to war. You invaded them and that automatically made our agreement with Poland kick in. We also gave our word to our French friends to stand by them.

                                We gave no such word to Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, or Finland so there is no sense in our government playing the "what if" game.

                                It is not our job to police the whole world. We offered our help to our allies and then stood by that word. True we have suffered a few setbacks, but we have only begun to fight...
