    Serious question re: Megali Idea.

    The Greek aims in terms of zones of control were always pretty much the Aegean coastline and nothing else inland for Anatolia, right? I always took it they essentially wanted the Greek-settled lands of the Turkish Aegean coast, pre-Alexander the Great/Hellenistic Age (from Doris-in-Asia northwards to and including the Straits Zone).

    I think so yes, it's basically some sort of vague idea that the ancient Ionian cities of the Anatolian coast meant that the population along that strip was 'ancestrally Greek' whereas the interior was not.

    That makes sense, thank you. I always found it fascinating Classical Greece's primary geographical area where The Greek People lived - not a mere city-state or colony but "Greece" as a contiguous area - was vaguely equivalent to ethnic maps where Greeks lived in in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

    I mean it was also where most of the Greeks in Anatolia actually lived.

    What happened to the little strip of land (Astrakhan?) that Russia was allowed to keep for some reason which seperated 'Khurasan' and 'Qoqzaz'? That was my favourite part of it... :frown:

    I think I was looking at a different map just to make sure the borders were accurate

    It was a map ISIS posted on twitter a while ago. Everything in black is all the land they intended to claim for their state within five years. It's as utterly ridiculous as it sounds.

    "Oh yes. We shall defeat Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, India, Spain, Turkey, etc in five years! Allahu Ackbar!"

    Jesus Christ. ISIS's fighters have the intellect of cavemen.

    Not touching Bangladesh though? You'd think they'd want more Muslim citizens...

    They also don't claim Indonesia. The largest muslim country on earth.

    Well. Why expect logical decisions from murderous fantatics?

    It takes big brass ones to want to overwhelm four nuclear powers, as well as poke at the boundaries of another alliance that contains three more. IIRC though, the map was a fake that emerged on Twitter anyway.

    The best 'ISIS map' was the one that 'they' made in Victoria 2. So you apparently had them planning on resurrecting Austria-Hungary after they took over the Middle East.
