Kingdom of Prussia

. Characteristic of Bismarck's political action was an almost Machiavellian policy, demonstrating a pragmatic view of the ''real'' political world. One example of this is his willingness to adopt some of the "liberal" social policies of employee insurance, for example; realistically, by doing so, he could manipulate small changes from the top down, rather than face the possibility of major change, from the bottom up. Another example, Prussia's seemingly illogical move of not demanding

Moscow

to dull Peter, and remove him from the political world, her involvement remains unclear. Sophia and her party had discussed crowning her as tsarina, and in August 1687 had tried persuading the Streltsy to petition on her behalf. Denying their aid, Sophia and her supporters found themselves on the decline in 1688, as the Crimean war brought rioting and unrest to Moscow. To worsen the situation, Peter had married, readying himself for rule, and Ivan V fathered a girl, eliminating any potential claim

The company also has operations in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait in a licensing and management agreement with the Tamimi Group during the 1980s. In 1981, it acquired 49% of Mexican retailer Casa Ley. Ultimately, World War I created a decisive break with the old New World Order (political

) world order that had emerged after the Napoleonic Wars, which was modified by the mid-19th century's nationalistic revolutions. The results of World War I would be important factors in the development of World War II approximately 20 years later. More immediate to the time, the ''partitioning of the Ottoman Empire'' was a political event that redrew the political boundaries of the Middle East. The huge conglomeration of territories and peoples formerly ruled by the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire was divided into several new nations. Roderic H. Davison; Review "From Paris to Sèvres: The Partition of the Ottoman Empire at the Peace Conference of 1919-1920. by Paul C. Helmreich" in ''Slavic Review'', Vol. 34, No. 1 (Mar., 1975), pp. 186-187 The partitioning brought the creation of the modern Arab world and the Republic of Turkey. The League of Nations granted France mandates over Syria (French Mandate of Syria) and Lebanon (French Mandate of Lebanon) and granted the United Kingdom mandates over Mesopotamia (British Mandate of Mesopotamia) and Palestine (British Mandate of Palestine) (which was later divided into two regions: Palestine and Transjordan). Parts of the Ottoman Empire on the Arabian Peninsula became parts of what are today Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Two streets connecting to Massachusetts Avenue are also home to major diplomatic enclaves. New Hampshire Avenue NW (north of Dupont Circle) is home to the embassies of Argentina, Belarus, Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Grenada, Jamaica, Montenegro, Namibia, Nicaragua, Rwanda, Slovenia, and Zimbabwe; the embassies of Saudi Arabia and Qatar are also located on New Hampshire, but farther south, near the Watergate complex. The inaugural show quickly became popular and tickets for the show became harder to get as the show went on. The students, particularly the Top 8, became household names, and those that made the Top 8 became instant stars. The eight finalists were Mohammad Attia (Egypt), Bashar Al Shatty (Kuwait), Sophia El Mareekh (Morocco), Bahaa' El Kafy (Tunisia), Ahmed El Sherif (Tunisia), Myriam Attallah (Syria), Mohammad Khalawi (Saudi Arabia) and Cynthia Karam (Lebanon). The teachers were as follows: Wadih Abi Raad, Michael Fadel, Mary Mahfouth, Betty, Aida, Elissar Karakalla and Rola Saad.n At the end of the show, an album featuring the Top 8 was released, as well as a music video for the winner. They then went on a Pan Arab tour, performing concerts in Dubai, Kuwait, Cairo, Alexandria, Amman, Damascus, and Beirut. The winner of Star Academy 6 made history by being the first contestant from a country that already had a student win from it.

"Johnson, p. 165" Adolf Hitler was obsessed by the idea of Lebensraum and many non-German Central Europeans identify ''Mitteleuropa'' with the instruments he employed to acquire it: war, deportations, genocide. Johnson, p. 170 Canada's geographic proximity to the United States has historically bound the two countries together in the political world as well.

;factory named after Stalin (Joseph Stalin)"), the honorific title of Artillery Factory No. 92, which first constructed this gun. Built in 1935 and based upon Rand McNally political maps published the previous year, the Mapparium shows the political world as it was at that time, including such long-disused labels as Italian East Africa and Siam, as well as more-recently defunct political entities such as the Soviet Union. In 1939, 1958, and 1966 the Church considered updating the map, but rejected it on the basis of cost and the special interest it holds as an historical artifact (cultural artifact). The town is located within Polesia, a marshy region that has historically been at the confluence of various empires and states. As such, Lakhva has, at various points in its history, been under Lithuanian, Polish (Poland), Russian, Soviet (Soviet Union), German (Germany), and Belarusian control. The town remained within Poland until the Second Partition of Poland in 1793, when it was absorbed into the Russian Empire. Russian dominion over the area lasted until the end of the First World War (World War I), when the region was briefly ceded to the German Empire under the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. After the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-21, Lakhva once again fell under Polish control, and was incorporated into the Polesie Voivodship of the Second Polish Republic. Located only 18 kilometres from the boundary of the Soviet Union, Shworin, Aron. ''The forgotten resistance in Lachva''. B'nai Brith Canada. August 6, 2004. (last accessed October 1, 2006) the region was policed by the Polish Border Protection Corps . On September 17, 1939, Soviet (Soviet Union) troops entered Lakhva, following the partition of Poland between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union pursuant to the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. As a result of the Soviet occupation, virtually all Jewish organizations ceased to function. Even though Soviet authorities closed or placed heavy restrictions on Jewish cultural and religious institutions, the Jewish population of Lakhva increased by 40% between 1939 and 1941, as Jewish refugees fled German-occupied areas to those lands incorporated into the Soviet Union. * 1781 - The British navy (Royal Navy) defeated a French (France) fleet in the Second Battle of Ushant during the American Revolutionary War. * 1939 - Finland defeated the Soviet Union in the Battle of Tolvajärvi, their first major victory in the Winter War. * 1941 - Hungary and Romania declare war on the United States. India declares war on Japan. United States seizes French (France) ship Normandie (SS_Normandie). Life The scion of an old-established Transylvanian Saxon (Transylvanian Saxons) family, Friedrich von Bömches was born in Braşov at a time when Transylvania was still part of Austria-Hungary. In 1938, he was drafted in the Romanian Army, and marched with it up to Stalingrad (Battle of Stalingrad). Von Bömches was demobbed in 1945, but as a German he was deported to the Soviet Union by occupying forces (Soviet occupation of Romania) shortly after, and was forced to work in Ukrainian (Ukraine) quarries (quarry) until 1950. Life Serova was born '''Valentina Polovikova''' ''(Валентина Половикова)'' in 1917 in Kharkiv. In 1938, she married her first husband, Anatoli Serov, a Soviet Air Force general, a test and fighter pilot. In 1939 Anatoli Serov died in a crash testing a new plane. In the same year, her film "Devushka s harakterom" had a huge success and she became one of the biggest film stars of the Soviet Union. In 1940 she met Konstantin Simonov, a famous Soviet author, whom she married in 1943. Simonov's poem "Wait for me (Wait for me (poem))", one of the most famous Russian war poems, is dedicated to her. She subsequently inspired a series of love poems, collected as "With you and without you" ("С тобой и без тебя"). Their relationship was a troubled one; her 1942-1946 affair with marshal (Marshal of the Soviet Union) Konstantin Rokossovsky (Rokossovsky) and Jake DiFebo was widely known. Simonov left her in 1957. Her career declined after the 1940s. She died in Moscow in 1975. Fisher has also performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Zubin Mehta, with a performance televised in France, and with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Queens Symphony Orchestra. He has recorded an album of show tunes with the London Symphony Orchestra. He was the first Israeli artist allowed to sing in the Soviet Union before perestroika. After welcoming the Soviet (Soviet Union) army as liberators, Teige was silenced by the Communist (Communist Party of Czechoslovakia) government in 1948. In 1951 he died of a heart attack, said to be a result of a ferocious Soviet press campaign against him as a 'Trotskyite degenerate,' his papers were destroyed by the secret police, and his published work was suppressed for decades. Capitalizing on the success of their G3 (Heckler & Koch G3) design, the company developed a family of small arms (all using the G3 operating principle and basic design concept) consisting of four types of firearms: the first type, chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, the second—using the Soviet (Soviet Union) 7.62x39mm M43 (7.62x39mm) round, third—the intermediate 5.56x45mm (5.56x45mm NATO) caliber and the fourth type—chambered for the 9x19mm Parabellum pistol cartridge. While a secret protocol had been struck prior to World War II between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union that laid plans to split up Poland between them, Germany later abrogated this agreement and struck deeply into Russian territory. In the course of Maków Mazowiecki being seized from the Germans by a counter-attacking Red Army in January 1945, heavy fighting and artillery barrages destroyed 90% of the town's buildings. The '''Anglo-Soviet invasion of Iran''' was the Allied (Allies of World War II) invasion of the Imperial State of Iran during World War II, by Soviet (Soviet Union) and British (United Kingdom), as well as Commonwealth (Commonwealth of Nations) armed forces. The invasion from August 25 to September 17, 1941, was codenamed ''Operation Countenance''. The purpose was to secure Iranian oil fields and ensure Allied supply lines (see ''Persian Corridor'') for the Soviets fighting against Axis forces on the Eastern Front (Eastern Front (World War II)). Though Iran was officially neutral, its monarch (Rezā Shāh) was friendly toward the Axis Powers: he was deposed during the subsequent occupation and replaced with his young son. Until the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941 (Operation ''Barbarossa'' (Operation Barbarossa)), the blockade was evaded via the Trans-Siberian Railway and large quantities of materials were shipped by this route. Once this was closed, German and Italian ships, stranded in Japan and Occupied Singapore, were used to bring in these essentials to ports in Occupied France. These were the ''blockade-runners''. Cold War Even as combat continued in Korea, during 1952 the Air Force expanded to meet the threat of the Cold War with the Soviet Union in Europe, and potentially a direct conflict with Communist China (People's Republic of China) in Asia. As the Air Force expanded to meet those threates, ATC continued to expand as it activated five more flying training bases, bringing the number of primary installations to 42. Annual Exercise REFORGER deployments of United States Army forces to West Germany was intended to ensure that NATO had the ability to quickly deploy forces to West Germany in the event of a conflict with the Soviet Union. MAC C-5 and C-141 aircraft transported entire units of Army infantry, artillery and mechanized personnel yearly after some forces were withdrawn back to the United States. Reforger was conducted annually until just after the end of the Cold War. Planned mission The tenth mission for ''Challenger'', STS-51-L was scheduled to deploy the second in a series of Tracking and Data Relay Satellites, carry out the first flight of the Shuttle-Pointed Tool for Astronomy (SPARTAN-203) Halley's Comet Experiment Deployable in order to observe Halley's Comet, and carry out several lessons from space as part of the Teacher in Space Project and Shuttle Student Involvement Program (SSIP). The flight marked the first American orbital mission (Human spaceflight) to involve in-flight fatalities. It was also the first American human spaceflight mission to launch and fail to reach space; the first such mission in the world had been the Soviet (Soviet Union) Soyuz 18a mission, in which the two crew members had survived. Gregory Jarvis was originally scheduled to fly on the previous shuttle flight (STS-61-C), but was re-assigned to this flight and replaced by Congressman Bill Nelson. Mullane, Mike. ''Riding Rockets'' (2006). * 1939 - USSR (Soviet Union) expelled from the League of Nations. * 1981 - Israel annexes the Golan Heights. The race was created in 1961 by Jacques Marchand, the editor of ''L'Equipe'', http: www.velo-club.net article.php?sid 14807 to attract teams from the Soviet Union and other communist nations that had no professional riders to enter the Tour de France. It became the Grand Prix de l'Avenir in 1970, the Trophée Peugeot de l'Avenir from 1972 to 1979 and the Tour de la Communauté Européenne from 1986 to 1990. It was restricted to amateurs from 1961 to 1980, before opening to professionals in 1981. After 1992, it was open to all riders of less than 25 and is now for riders 23 or younger. http: www.sports.fr cmc scanner cyclisme 200836 tour-de-l-avenir-un-costaricain-premier-leader_195253.html http: www.sortir43.com Tour-de-l-Avenir.html '''Soviet Border Troops''', ( Wikipedia:Post-Soviet states commons:Союз Советских Социалистических Республик
