Empire: How Spain Became a World Power, 1492-1763. Charles De Gaulle, who led the Free French Resistance movement against the Nazis during their occupation of France in World War II, was elected but refused to participate and thus resigned. At this point, naval fleets are still mostly Pre-Dreadnoughts, which gives the scene here a sort of Jurassic Park feel in comparison to what would become familar in World War I and II. The Tagus River, flowing west into the Atlantic at Lisbon, divides mainland Portugal into two distinct topographical and climatic regions.

Paul Cézanne set out to restore a sense of order and structure to painting, to "make of Impressionism something solid and durable, like the art of the museums". Some of the social sciences as they are instituted in the United States are younger in Spain. That litany of lone "no" votes can keep going, such as regarding resolutions condemning Israel's horrendous human-rights violations of the Palestinians, or the apartheid government of South Africa's treatment of the blacks there.� The USA has a lengthy record of installing and/or propping up some of the most brutal regimes on Earth, such as Suharto's Indonesia, Pinochet's Chile, the Shah's Iran, the death-squad regimes of El Salvador and Guatemala, its support for Pol Pot's Cambodia and so on.� The USA regularly stands alone on the world stage and rejects principles of decency and humanity that the rest of the world has embraced.� In that light, the sudden professed humanitarian concern for the Albanians should be viewed with a skeptical eye.� Indeed, try as one m ight, there is probably not one “humanitarian” military intervention to be found in world history. [337] � Violence is not, has never been, and never will be, a humanitarian undertaking.� Somebody is always violated, and invading armies have never inflicted violence out of humanitarian intent.� It has always been self-serving on the part of those who created the armies and the situations they are used in, and they will always concoct a reasonable and seemingly noble rationale for their violence, and it is never the real reason.� If America’s activities happen to benefit Albanians or Kuwaitis or Iraqi Kurds, it is incidental, and our leaders will always look for a good cover story to sell to the masses, so minor population elements benefiting from America’s interventions become the story of the day, not the majority’s suffering.� If Albanians or Kuwaitis get in the way or become expendable, they will share the same fate as Iraq's children.� Whenever pe ople begin to analyze whether Serbs are worse than Croats, or if Albanians deserve to be “free” in Kosovo, or how murderously the Muslims were treated, they usually have already made assumptions that should be rejected, which is that the USA's government really cares about any of those people, and that we have a God-given right to intervene.� The only right being exercised is the right of might, which America exercises regularly, accompanied each time with lies to justify it, just as Hitler and Mussolini did when they invaded Czechoslovakia and Ethiopia.� The Kurdish people comprise the world's largest ethnic group without a home state.� There were more than 16 million Kurds alive in 2000, and about half of them lived in Turkey.� Turkey is another artificial entity that imposed a national identity on a land of tribes, as the Ottoman Empire's remnant after the Great Powers carved it up after World War I. [338] � At World War I’s conclusion, the Kurdish people vied to establish a nation for themselves as the Ottoman Empire ended.� Woodrow Wilson even remarked that the three ethnic groups that should have their own nation as the Ottoman Empire was carved up were Armenians, Kurds, and Arabs.� Unfortunately for Kurds, Kurdistan was sitting on large oil deposits, and the UK's power politics (other colonial powers were also involved, including France and America) divided Kurdistan between the new artificial nations Turkey and Iraq (Kurdistan also was carved up into portions of Iran, Syria, and the Soviet Union).� Kurds are neither Turks nor Arabs and have their own distinct identity, linguistically and culturally. [339] � The plight of Kurdish people over the past century has been grim, with periodic revolt and repression throughout Kurdistan.� The 1980s were a particularly difficult time for Kurds.� Although Kurds were instrumental in deposing Iran's Shah, Khomeini's regime denied them autonomy, and Kurds were partly used as pawns by Iran during the Iraq-Iran war in the 1980s, with Iraq's Kurds being armed and encouraged to fight against Iraq.� In light of how America sold them out earlier, Kurds must have been desperate indeed to rise up again, with American encouragement.� As Iraq gained the upper hand militarily (enthusiastically armed by the West, America in particular [340], and the USA also helped arm Iran, as the Iran/Contra scandal made clear), in 1987 it began a military campaign against Kurdish rebels, and that was when Saddam Hussein's troops used chemical weapons on Kurds.� In 1987 and 1988, when Hussein was using chemical weapons on Kurds, he was the USA's ally against Iran, so those atrocities went largely unreported in the mainstream American press.� While chemical weapons were being used on Iraq's Kurds, Turkey engaged in its own bloody repression of Kurds.� Beginning in 1984, the military effort of Turkey killed about 40,000 Kurds and made refugees of two million others.� In Censored 2000, the number-five story of the year was the fact that Turkey had destroyed thousands of Kurdish villages with American weapons.

Spanish has been spoken in the US for centuries, and it is used in many different ways today. The Franciscan mission of Nuestra Señora del Espíritu Santo de Zúñiga, built at Matagorda Bay in 1722 to help protect the coast from the French, was later moved inland. This tense developed by medieval Ibero-Romance is now old-fashioned in Spanish, but remains in vernacular use in Portuguese (in fact, it shows no signs of falling out of favour).
