Jozef Pilsudski's oddly prophetic words on the Polish-Soviet War. With Warsaw being run over by the Soviets by September 5, 1920, the Poles retreated west until Pilsudski himself surrendered to Soviet forces after Poznan fell on December 18. The day of his surrender was on December 25, 1920, which was White Christmas in Hell, Norway.

As France collapsed and allied forces entered Toulouse, the Second Great War drew to an end. Anticipating the impending diplomatic and political division between South-East and North-West Europe, the Danubian Federation spared no time in flexing its might on its soon-to-be rivals. On the 5th of August 1951, a week after French surrender, Premier Dana Sokol, having only taken leadership 3 months ago, announced that the DSF had undertaken its first successful nuclear tests, clearly marking it as one of the leaders of post-war Europe. Oscar Bergh, Prime Minister of Scandinavia made this remark upon hearing the Danubian announcement.

A dark summation of America's efforts to neutralize Japan

"Italy shall never abandon Britain and France! Hitler will have to kill every italian, Ethiopian, Albanian, Greek, and still more before he breaks our spirit. And mark my words, he would have tried to regardless. People of Rome, we must fight. FOR OUR FAMILIES, FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS, FOR ROMA!" -Benito Mussolini, Itaian Dulce, 1936

A comment by Shari Redstone when discussing his decision to diversify Viacom Inc into the crowded fast-food market. As the ultimate owners of the popular SpongeBob cartoon IP, Viacom created a series of nautically-themed "Krusty Krab" fast-food restaurants/children's entertainment centers. As a promotional stunt, the "Krusty Krab" chain offered for a limited time the 'Real SpongeBob'-certified cooking-&-swimming program where participants (who were selected from a draw among the chain's costumers under the age of 12) were taken on a tour of Nickelodeon studios and given cooking/swimming lessons. At the end the children would be given a certificate indicating they were "respobsible" swimmers/cooks. Though open to children only, a number of adult SpongeBob fans tried to get in by faking their age (hence Redstone's comment).

"The architects of the 2003 American invasion of Iraq believed that once Saddam had been overthrown Washington will be able to rebuild the country into a bright beacon of capitalism and democracy -- a "Germany of the Middle East", akin to the F.R.G. in the post-WW2 years. In a way it does resemble Germany now, just not in the way the Americans envisioned it. Instead of the Federal Republic of Germany, it is like the Holy Roman Empire: an anachronistic, disunited mess of a country which takes its national name from a long-gone (& much more prestigious) empire & where a few select elite "democratically" decide who is going to play the role of the feeble & powerless national-leader figurehead. We can only hope now that the "Napoleon of the Middle East" won't decide to knock on Bagdad's door and choose to "take the crown" for himself."

French Foreign Minister Jean Blanchard describing the miserable failure of the Central American Union to rebuild the country following the disastrous invasion of Iraq and the subsequent fears that the people would be receptive to "liberation" by the Persians.

"Franconia was the 'Greatest Land Power in Europe' because no one else was actually trying. Ireland and Castile were naval powers first and foremost, the Baltic League was an dysfunctional mess and even when they were functional they focused on trade rather than war, Karelia never had the population to be a serious contender although they made one hell of a run at it for a century or so, the Hungarians preferred to fuck their way to an Empire rather than fight their way to one, and Byzantium and the Rus were too busy being at each others throats to care about you half a continent away. No wonder you were successful for 800 years, you had no competition. The minute the Teutons stopped fighting each other and got their shit together they kicked your teeth in so hard you had to go crying to your mortal enemy in Rome and beg the Pope to save you from the big bad Hun."

A line from 1998 historical drama All the King's Men. The line in question is from the infamous monologue between the great Sultan Orhan I and King John II of Franconia where the Sultan is demonstrating Ottoman supremacy over the region and comparing it to Franconian exploits in the last 800 years. After a verbal exchange with John II and the ambassador, Orhan declares war on Franconia in what would ultimately become the Great Mediterranean War of 1354.

"60 years ago, the firing ceased. 60 years ago, the continent rejoiced to the end of the most terrible carnage it had ever seen. Today, the continent is once plagued by unsound theories, the desire for conquest, and the idea that might makes right. The tragic surrender of the Carolinas to President Long's military machine commenced when President Cameron Morrison failed to meet the demands of the Southron Dictator. At Long's mansion in Springer Mountain, the Carolinian President defying Long said 'Carolina will repel any Southron invasion and any incursion.' He added 'Carolina is a Christian state, an American state, and a free state.' However, within a few short hours, the 21st Continental Congress and the World were shocked to hear that Southron tanks had crossed the border in a thunderous invasion of Carolina."

A line from a news report on the end of the Southeastern War (1904-1907), where Carolina (ATL Carolinas, southern Virginia, eastern Tennessee, Georgia, and eastern Florida), clashed with South Ronaldia (OTL Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and part of Florida Panhandle), part of the US Union, and then led by George Long . The war quickly went messy once the US kicked South Ronaldia out of its ranks for it, Britain consequently sponsored SR, and Cuba decided the war would be harmful to its territory (in OTL west Florida). Tensions across the southern US still remain high.

"My folks used to laugh at me and say I wouldn't amount to anything in life. Now I laugh at them and think how they didn't amount to anything."

"The Romanian nation is fictitious and the Romanian language is fictitious - obviously, the true nation is Pridnestrovian, and the true language Moldavian - and with god on our side, we shall march from Tiraspol to Bucharest, and our glorious Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic shall regain its full sovereignty, from Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy to the Banat and from Dobruja to Bukovina!"

President Smirnov was incredibly similar to adolf hitler in attitude and policy, and would slander other balkan nationalities frequently. He rose to power shortly after the collapse of the European integration movements that had occured due to Britain and France objecting to German reunification. The US swiftly put an end to Transnistria.
