"Goddamn royals. I swear, sometimes I think we would be better off following the French and lopping all of their blue blooded heads clean off."
Mike Ferraro grumbling about the Kansas City Royals versus his own Menphis Hippos and the St. Louis Trappers, 1986.

"People often describe classical as being the whitest music out there, but when's the last time you've seen or heard of a black metalhead?"

The singer and songwriter Mournival talking about music stereotypes. He would be quickly defied by the songwriter Herman Henry, who was black, but contributed significantly to the modern metal music genre.

"Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow/So says the West, for he claims he will rise/A resurrection rather Jesus-like/But now that resurrection is akin/To a pale zombie, shambling from the grave."
(The format was iambic, that's why the slashes and the syllabic pattern)

The lyrics are of the Metal song "Failed messiah", composed by the group Machine Cult. They talk about JFK miraculous recovery of his assasination attempt in 1963 and his disastrous presidency (the Middle East War, the diplomatic incident in Berlin, the southron terrorist movements, etc) afterwards due to the damage done to his mind. Both the title and the lyrics make reference to the inmense fame Kennedy had among the american people and his presidency's later decadence.

"Of all the satrapies of the Empire, Greece was the most fierce and indomitable, later it was the most prestigious and cultured and now a greek sits on the Throne in Persepolis by decision of her subjects"

An unamed writer commenting on the Greek seizure of power in the Persian Empire, circa 500 BC.

"To NATO's surprise, their expected implosion of the anarchist commune in Russia had failed to occur. If anything the giant nation was prospering even though it did not have a government."

President Alex Johnson on the Belgian Congo annexation after the war with Belgium, 1922. Today his legacy is heatedly disputed between those who accuse him of encouraging american imperialism and those who consider him someone who fought for democracy. While is true that the situation of the natives improved considerably in the american Congo, there was still institutionalized racism in the congolese States, although many have pointed out that this was due to the circunstances and mores of the age.

"Is there a more outworldly beautiful city than Gobol Q'zalt? I don't think so"
 
From the alien commander in the book "Another World", published in 1996.

"It's not that us Arabs have a problem with the Jews. The problem is that the Jews use far too much security at their borders. When I tried visiting my friend in Israel, they pulled out an army of border officers and a sniffer dog. Good grief, it felt like I was in one of those Yank comedy sketches."

The British Empire looking at various countries in the Middle East which never gave civil rights to women. This quote was from David Attenborough, who exposed the insides of the United Arab Emirates and Oman to the world with documentaries. This caused an international outcry at those two countries, which ended up forcing some change.

"The average Russian now only wants three things: affordable food, affordable housing, and a good salary."

A popular statement by Admiral Alexander Kolchak in the closing stages of the Russian Civil War, and when victory for the Whites was truly inevitable.

"What to colonize next, Mr. President?"

"The Pacific. The so called Pearl of the Orient. The Philippines. We need to take it before Berlin does."

A conversation between French President Charles Caron and Secretary of the treasury Micheal Bisset. For the better half of the 19th century, France has been locked in something of a colonial cold war with the German Confederacy, a cold war which would eventually culminate in a war over Taiwan in 1878.

"I know everyone thinks our nation is a joke, but nobody ever seem's to give the Austrian's a hard time when it comes to there Military track record."

Doge Luigi Zaia of Venice, about the poor state of the Venetian military when compared to the rest of Europe.

"See? That's what I call punishment! Say anything you want about the Krauts, but at least they know how to handle their criminals!"

David Lloyd George speaking about the prison system in Germany and comparing it to the almost porous system in the UK where criminals kept escaping prisons in the early 1900s. Usually any attempted escapees of German prisons died in the pursuit, hence the "say anything you want" line.

"A volcanic disaster and a sewage disaster? This is a... crappy experience."

Said by the italian Prime Minister Carlo Mazzinni on a telephonic call upon hearing news of the Napoli Sewerage Flooding of 1984, which coincided with the infamous Mount Etna eruption of the same year. Despite the gravity of both events, Mazzinni's administration accomplished saving a lot of people and managing the reconstruction works, including a renewal of Napoli's sewerage. This made him a very popular PM and got him reelected in the next elections.

Lt. Col. Feisal Kattan of the Arabian SABRE Unit, with regards to SABRE's controversial tactics against religious extremist resistance movements, primarily in the Arabian Peninsula and in the Sahel. SABRE was one of many units employed by the Arabian Democratic Federation against such groups. While the Federation remains committed to democracy, the harshness of their crackdown on religious extremist and nationalist elements across its vast territory remain controversial despite its success.

"The thrice glorious and thrice august Emperor Arthur of House Wellesley is crowned and enthroned. Long live the Emperor!"

The crowning of Emperor Arthur of House Wellesley in a what-if scenario where Wellesley became Emperor of the British Empire after a massive restructuring after the Napoleonic Wars.

"The American public longs eagerly for only two things now; a decent salary, and the National Football League."

A quote from a New York Times op-ed several months after the NFL declared bankruptcy in the midst of a catastrophic recession.

"You cannot defeat the United States. This country will return blow for blow, insult for insult, until all our foes lie humbled. Let this be a warning to all nations: If you try and catch us off-guard, if you think you can take us down, we will get back up on our feet and WE WILL BURY YOU!"

Bellowed by Richard Nixon, the Communist Ruler of the United States of America during Communist rule (Communist America: 1929-1992) at the League of Nations summit in Paris. This was clearly aimed at America's main rival, the most powerful capitalist nation in the world, the Democratic Republic of China. This quote became ironic when communism in America collapsed in the 90's and Chinese Capitalism prevailed.

"Everyone always speculated how the world would end. Nuclear war, alien invasion, zombies, disease, an asteroid, maybe even murder hornets. But they didn't predict it would be due to the spread of Immortality."
