Well, NATO certainly had good aim in this incident. Serbian state media intentionally and shamelessly whipped up the Serbs to support the Serb aggression against Serbia’s Balkan neighbors, so too bad if the Serb state media ended up a war target. Cry me a Drina….
Ireland is NOT a British Isle. The UK is the United Kingdom of Britain AND Northern Ireland. Isle of Man is a British isle.
The United Kingdom and the British Isles are different things. The British Isles are made up of: The Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey. Whereas, the United Kingdom is just England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The Republic of Ireland is actually part of the British Isles but not part of the United Kingdom.
However there is a dispute in the naming of the British Isles as it alludes to the British having lordship over Ireland, so the British Isles might also be referred to as ‘The British-Irish Isles’.
According to who? It seems the Falklands and Cyprus should be listed as “British Isles” under this curious definition. Why not Rhode Island too?
Well known Irish song about Brit cartographers and politicians always claiming more than their due. Song is about a tiny island near Ireland that Britain claims is ‘British’ so it can get oil rights. Such proper manners:
‘Rock On Rockall’ by the Wolfe Tones
Oh the empire is finished no foreign lands to seize,
So the greedy eyes of England are looking towards the seas.
Two hundred miles from Donegal, there’s a place that’s called Rockall,
And the groping hands of Whitehall are grabbing at its walls.
Oh rock on Rockall, you’ll never fall to Britain’s greedy hands,
Or you’ll meet the same resistance that you did in many lands.
May the seagulls rise and pluck your eyes and the water crush your shell,
And the natural gas will burn your ass and blow you all to hell.
If I see another Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez or Candice Swimmingpool post I will just unfollow, unfriend, undulate, and unreally discombobulate anyone who posts that, as well as shave their eyebrows. Please, be considerate to others…
Yes, I took liberties with Candice’s last name, but I kindly kept the first letter intact. Lucky I didn’t take liberties with her first name….
Sarah Shahi, American TV actress. There is nothing to criticize here… those legs and face alone > most things.
Remember her in The L Word?
I never saw the L Word. Lust? Love? Longing? Lesbos? Lulling? Lascivious? Longing? Lolling? Lilting? Lolita? Lactiferous? Laicism? I don’t know what the L Word was referring to, but I would happily spend an evening playing Scrabble with Ms. S.S.
Ireland is NOT a British Isle. The UK is the United Kingdom of Britain AND Northern Ireland. Isle of Man is a British isle. Americans (as in those in the USA) are rightly accused of bad geography, but Brits shamelessly say Ireland is a British Isle? Why not list the Falklands and Cyprus too if you are using a political spin on what’s British?
