Explain the AH Quote

I not sure if adding the person who quoted it and the event itself is ok or not, it takes away alot of the chance for creativity by filling in the blanks imo.



A line from the futuristic comedy novel American Stars by L. Ron Hubbard (1911-1986), the novel is quite different from Hubbard's other works, which were usually fantasy and sci fi in nature, whereas this novel took a more grounded setting, with it being set in New York City in the 2040s, where America, after languishing in a midlife crisis sort of state, as with the fall of the Soviet Union and China in the 1980s, America has ripped the spoils of being the world's sole superpower, with the future generations having grown spoiled and used to not having to worry about hardships, which has seen the current generation deal with problems such as hooliganism, failing grades, and a drop in birth rates. The novel was also more lighthearted and funny, which again was quite different from Hubbard's other novels, which while not devoid of humor or wholesome moments, were usually serious in tone, sometimes to the detriment of the stories. While panned like Hubbard's other novels at the time, this novel in particular has gained a cult following, known by some people as "Hubbard's one good novel."

"Africa was left a mess by the end of the joint-European-Asian colonization in the 1950s. Alongside Britain, France, Portugal, Germany, Spain, Italy, and Belgium, Japan, China, Indonesia, and India left an impact on the continent - culturally, religiously, and socially."
A quote by the united nation general secretary adlai stevenson after the the un intervention in angola.

The mess he describe was how these newly born country have such instability and corruption especially those left by spain and italy.

The asian colonies in africa like the japanese seychelles and indonesian madagascar faired better as the people there accepted multiculturilsm homever the one that was run by the chinese and india (zanzibar and tanzania respectively) was a hotbed of racial and for india caste violance.

The only non european colony that is of morocco and liberia (which was ran by north american federation) was seen as an oasis in the middle of such a hostile continent.

Unidentified Russian police officer to American Associated Press journalist Brace Belden in 2014, stated just before arresting Belden for allegedly interfering with the police suppressing an anti-Putin demonstration. Belden would die in police custody, allegedly of a drug overdose but more likely of a result of beating sustained during his arrest. This would see a spike of anti-Russian sentiment in the United States, especially their potential social media influence on the upcoming 2016 elections.

An Ottoman Air Force General in 1949 to a Turkish Nuclear Phyiscist. The latter had just completed a test of the first nuclear bomb (detonated deep in the sands of Libya) and the Grand Vizier, the effective ruler of the Ottoman Empire at the time, proposed to use another atomic bomb on Budapest, to force the Austrian Empire to surrender under the threat of total destruction.

But given how brutal and deadly the war had been and promised to be if fought conventionally, the Vizier and the pro-nuclear camp within Court argued that it was less costly in men and money to both sides.

"When the Americans unleashed atomic fire on the French, I thought it was Armageddon. And then the French unleashed chemical and biological weapons of such evil and devastation that Emperor Napoleon V is likely still accounting for the list alone as he burns in hell, even now five years later."

British Prime Minister and leader of the UK-in-Exile government Winston Churchill (1878-1965) in 1952, when describing the war crimes of the French Empire during the Great War (1941-1947), in particular, their use of said weapons upon American soldiers, the nearest enemy towns possible, "subhumans", and it's own civilians. These actions would only further speed up France's spiral into madness as it was losing the war, eventually ending with the violent overthrow of the government in the city of Paris in May 1947, with the war coming to an end a month later.

"The Persians and Greeks were completely total opposites back in ancient times, with the empire to the east being considered a tolerant and multicultural place, while the city-states to the west were known to be victims of their own xenophobia and jingoism, both via diplomacy and warfare, words and weapons. But 2500 years later, those who are aware of these facts can only look upon what the two civilizations have become today, what their countries that have taken up their mantle as their descendants, and ask; what happened?"

Vinlander journalist Mads Halfdan, speaking on the current great powers of the Near East: the Social Confederation of Greece, a socialist-libertarian republic with large Muslim and Jewish minorities, competing with the Imperial State of Iran, an absolute monarchy of the most despotic kind.

Jomo Kenyatta, Prime Minister of Kenya, 1961, on the Commonwealth Invasion of Italian East Africa. Kenyatta personally despised the Governor Valerio Borghese, who had Somali rebels beheaded and their heads displayed at the border.

"Scotch Borderers, Settler Cavaliers, Baltimore's Fencibles and Sicilian cutthroats. Hardly a drop of English blood in the Royal Army, bar that they spill on their stirrups and breeches."

Quote by the Duke of Wellington in 1812, upon seeing the rabble that formed much of the Royal Army of the British Empire in the Peninsular campaign of the Napoleonic War. These soldiers were often low-quality because the British Parliament had low hopes for the Peninsular campaign at first. There were also Portuguese and Spanish allied regiments, but the entire campaign was fraught with internecine conflict, hence the quote by Wellington. Much of these rabble were not English by origin, but Wellington had the unenviable task of turning them into a real army. Through strict discipline and capable administration, this eventually did come to pass, leading to several victories over the Grand Armee of Napoleon in Portugal and Spain.

French President Gaul Mittermond to the Spanish King Alfonso X during the signing of the Treaty of Bilbao to end the Franco-Spanish War.

"The NATO forces rolled into Serbia, hoping that the common Serbs would join them in overthrowing the regime in Belgrade. However, that was not what happened - they ended up encountering resistance - which was both much more numerous and much more fierce than anticipated. Just to make things worse for the alliance, Russia threatened to intervene if they did not withdraw within 30 days!"

Dialogue caught on a security camera on Dock 13 in the port of San Augustine in the Dominio de Florida. This was caught between a Floridian Customs & Inventory inspector and Captain of the Aquila-5 cargo ship. The crew of the Aquila-5 had been infiltrated by Puerto Rican-based anti-imperialist rebel group Victoria de la Gente, or VG for short. This was the first cross-Caribbean offense that the VG took against the Spanish Empire. The explosion killed 50 crew members, both rebels and actual crew members, and multiple Floridian officials. The attack lead to direct rule from Madrid and the Spanish crown on Florida along with investigative military cooperation between Spanish Florida, the Georgia Commonwealth and the République du Tejas.

"And now... we wait..."
"Wait for what?"
"For the final bell to toll."

Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, late 1916 as German, Austrian and Persian armies crushed all resistance before them. The "final bell" would toll a mere month later when the last of Russia's increasingly weak armies was routed near Petrograd, prompting a general collapse in state authority and the murder of the royal family by revolutionaries.

An exchange between two unidentified voice actors regarding a potential dialogue exchange, with Mr. Nielsen referring to Leslie Nielsen, famous comic actor. The work was referred to Police Squad! The Animated Series; an animated adaptation of the short-lived television series. It was noted for having large production values, especially in animation, than animated shows at the time and aimed at an older audience. As such, it along with The Simpsons proved that animation could serve also for adults, namely by serving as an exaggeration of the real world and using that for greater effects. While not having as prominent a pop culture following as the The Simpsons, it did gain a fascinating association to the rise of more serious animation, due to serial storytelling.

Additionally, Nielsen himself would gain some attention by starring in Batman: The Animated Series as a veteran cop, returning to some serious chop and even helping to advterise Batman: Mask of the Phantasm as a favor. This helped contribute to the film's box office success and made serious animated films into more focus, such as leading to the creation of Superman: For The Man Who Has Everything, an adaptation of Alan Moore's classic oneshot made with his permission. Beyond an icnreased budget, it popularized Mongul as a Superman villain (becoming the go-to after Lex Luthor and tied with Brainiac) along with serving as a view into Superman's humanity and even showing off Wonder Woman, who in turn would get her own film in Wonder Woman: Betwixt Gods and Mortals, an original story written by Grant Morrison, who used George Perez's work as an inspiration, creating a form of "modern Greek myth" in her examining her humanity and her origins. While doing quite well and creating a ntoed trilogy, it had the then-controversial decision that she was born in a romantic tryst between Hippolyta and Heracles after he achieved godhood. Morrison noted that Diana realizing the folly of the gods (including Hera's manipulation of Heracles and that of the Amazons when Hippolyta and Heracles first met) was part of the theme of the story, connecting it to her growing past the gods and pushing her to become more human. It also cemented Wonder Woman/Diana Prince's civilian job of being a librarian, a keeper of tales.

An opening line from a documentary series about U.S history, on episode 12 entitled "The Second Progressive Era (1985-2005)", which detailed the fallout of when the election results were read out in November 1984 saying Walter Mondale had won over George H. W. Bush, the aftermath of Mondale's inauguration, Mondale's first 100 days in office, numerous reforms, the large pushback from reactionary, paleoconservative, traditionalist, and outright fascist/white supremacist-nationalist/bigoted forces, the various riots and attempted rebellions by far-right groups in the late-80s to the mid-90s, "the War on Racism, aka the War on White Supremacism", the WTC attacks, popular culture, Al Gore's presidency (1992-2000) and his efforts in environmentalism, foreign policy, and the Internet, the Presidency of Joe Lieberman (2001-2005), the 9/11 attacks against America and Israel, LGBTQ+ Rights, immigration reform, and the controversial 2005 U.S Election where George W. Bush (2005-2012) won, embolden since his father's loss in 1984. Bush's presidency would be marked by a return to conservatism, which while following in the footsteps of "a kinder, better america", would still pull back some of the taxes on corporations, halt the immigration reforms, and ramp up the involvement of the World's sole superpower in foreign conflicts, such as the Greater Middle Eastern Conflict (2012-2022), the Burmese Civil War (2011-2021), and the Brazilian insurgency (2010-2020).

"The Byzantine-Russian Empire, also known as the New Roman Empire, would become the World's most powerful nation not long after their unification, instantly becoming the world's largest nation in territory size, stretching from Magna Graecia to Ezo, Finland to Mongolia. But centuries later, when it eventually fell, it fell apart hard."

A line from historian sir jeremy clarkson on his tv show "Top History with clarkson,hammond and may". The event that caused the collapse of said empire is because the intervention of concert of europe nation after its leader agreed to support napoleon and switch side to support the french empire, this lead to bombardment if athens by british warship and the subsuquebt capture of the city by prussian marine in the east the us navy engaged the empire navy around alaska and california resulting in the largest ship Imperator Byzantium falling to the american hands alomgside this qing troops are starting to push the empire forces in the plains of gobi dessert the empire, at first thinking the qing wouldnt be able to retaliate was proven wrong wheb manchuria fell in just 2 weeks this and the subsuquent tokugawa surprise attack in siberia and british capture of st petersburg caused the empire to collapse.

The following year after its collapse it and the french empire was partioned by the victor with northern france and anatolia,the balkans to the prussian,alaska and kamtachka to the american,manchuria to qing and sakhalin and some siberian land going to tokugawa.
