A. K. A. Loose Canon
Tecumseh, I'm impressed that you did the research into this. A batalha do Ourique was critical both for the creation of the nation of Portugal, and for the undermining of the "Western" caliphate. Henriques was of Frankish, hence vaguely French, background.... the House of Burgundy we can imagine as a House of Bush that had as its nexus someone more of a Reaganish than GWB disposition. The bitterness of the game is that, in the end, all that fierce courage was for nothing. Portugal is enfolding, without a fight, into the Ummah. Watch, within 30 years it will no more be outside of Islam than is Lebanon today. Remind me, one day of rain and gray, as to where this deep pessimsim draws its reality from.
Let's wait till the weather turns to get gloomy. Right now, let us celebrate the great victory of Ibn-Arrik, El-Bortukali.
Cortés era más macho. Como siempre, el español gana al portugués.
Hey, Herr Rott, our fine researchers showed that Cortes was Portuguese, and was dragooned into service of Spain Militant by the same cabal as undid the once sterling Fernando Magelhaes. Much has been lost in the Castilian lust for dreams over reason.
Dreams have gone better for the widely hated (and deservedly so, in spite of your participation) gachupines. Next time we have money brother, we'll tour Iberia together and we'll ask the girls to be impartial, my investment manager, by the way, has indicated that I have money in tons. Needless to say, it is likely that I will be he decision taken with complete autonomy without interest in the petty desires of petty urges of penniless of plebs.
"petty desires of petty urges of penniless of plebs." Why do the managers of money never sympathize with We, The Petty??Touring Iberia would be magnificent.
Count me in. All I did was go down from the Pyrennees to Saragoza, and then took the train to Madrid and the airport there. I guess there's more to Iberia than that...
It's the greatest province in the Empire, Hispania.
