  1. Syria - What should we do if anything?

    They did not do this until 1991 too. Being combined in rather wealthy country that was among the leading ones in the third world. Intervening in the well-working regime is the worst idea. You can't make people of tribal society live in the united stable country without some elements of dictatorship. Arab society is still based on clan or tribe structure. And you can't form a stable and well-functioning state there with current European methods. They simply don't work there.
  2. Syria - What should we do if anything?

    Sure thing, the large black hole that accomodates hijacked cars from all over Europe and is a save heaven for drug dealers and illegal human limbs traders is a good example. Violation of international laws stating the inviolability of the states' borders is a good example too. You know, Russian authorities point at the Kosovo when someone talks about supporting separatism in Abhasia and Southern Osetia and recognizing them as a sovereign states. Crimean affair is largerly based on Kosovo case too. Well, did the invasion help in Libya in 2011? Maybe Kremlin's propaganda hides something from me, but as far as I know Libya is still a ruined failed state teared apart by civil war, being the constant source of refugees for seven years already. BTW Kosovo may be also an example of failed state unable to survive a couple of years without EU and US donations. Iraq cannot be named a prosperous state too, even 15 years after the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime. So I suppose the best solution is not invade but avoid of throwing shit on the fan (supporting different jihadists in case of Syria).

    Install Syrian civil war mod for ArmA2 (IMHO it's the most accurate) and play against each other.
  4. Syria - What should we do if anything?

    What you call "good old Europe" had been constructed due to competition with socialist state USSR and socialist system. WIthout such competition capitalist system just returns to its natural condition - late XIX - early XX century. All this strongly resembles a "Wishmaster" movie to me. "We want USSR and socialism to collapse!!! We want the freedom!!!" - "As you wish". So it's not about NWO or someone's mental disorder. It's just a return of usual capitalism that had been modified to withstand its socialist rival.
  5. Unfortunately there's no manual in 2.6 archive that is hosted at Armaholic. Maybe there were some in the earlier versions of mod downloads, but they are not available.
  6. Sorry for digging up old thread. I wonder if there's an option of setting manually emblems and insignias on Hueys and M113s? For example placing 'Navy'/'Marines' instead of 'United States army', setting emblem of detachment etc.
  7. Do you have any pets?

    Currently I have four cats in my appartments. All of them are taken from the street being kittens, one was about 2 days after been born, not even opened her eyes. Another one was taken on the highway about 700 km from my home, very sick and starving. Now all them are in good shape, eating, sleeping and playing with each other.
  8. World Cup 2018

    My congratulations to France
  9. World Cup 2018

    Even me, usually not interested in football, watched this. Victory of our team was quite surprising for me. But still...
  10. I think both variants are true. They are too dumb to get familiar with ArmA editor.
  11. Seems that more and more TV companies use game footage instead of dedicated 3D graphics for illustrations. And due to general incompetence they forget to insert some kind of watermark stating that it's not real footage.
  12. OFP Addon request thread

    Some tima ago there were news about CSLA mod progress showing MiG-15. Does anyone have this addon?

  14. The town that disappeared - BBC news item

    Maybe for sake of destroying the building before it will start to decay and become dangerous for occasional tourist.
  15. The town that disappeared - BBC news item

    Originally they were just left. But very often abandoned buildings become common place for the rest of local teenagers who set fires just in the rooms and don't extinguish them properly.
