"If you think about it, it was all about the first (fictional) western man dying in a war in Asia! " - this is a constructed history; were not the Ionians residing in Asia Minor not Asiatics?

They were good subjects to the Great King; to this day the word used in Persian and Arabic for Hellenes is "Yunani" - Ionian.



Do you think the tepid to air support the US gave when Ramadi was over run a few weeks ago was punishment to the Iraqi Government for allowing the transfer of Iraqi militia forces to Syria at about the same time?
