Alas, unitil the West returns to fighting wars of Annihilation - the strong suit - failure will ensue.

Thanks for posting that link. I wonder how many computer wargamers read FP?

BTW, I can vouch for Twilight Struggle. James (JAMiAM) taught it too me at Pacificon last September and I bought it right after the con. It's a fun game and a great history lesson (or stroll through memory lane) on the events of the Cold War. There's even a way to play it on the internet if you have someone you know to play it with (haven't found time to do that yet).

Well, there is at least one. It is bookmarked on my computer along with the Economist.

Go figure....

Me too. What history nut wouldn't be interested in world events. (Although their liberal bias is somewhat annoying, but i'll leave politics for another forum.)
