Country of one wall. Subjectively about Malta


Country of one wall. Subjectively about Malta
"Duma" continues the heading "Subjectively about the Abroad". Today we bring to attention of readers Alexey Kravtsov's material. Continuing after Cyprus and Hong Kong raid on the former British colonies, the author will tell about Malta this time.

God's Spittle in the center of the Mediterranean Sea. A bone in a throat of Ottomans. Unsinkable aircraft carrier of the British Empire. Generally, the next microscopic state, where from resources pleasant and useful to the person - only valor and constancy. Member of the EU and Eurozone. With same-sex marriages, but without NATO and Schengen. Total area - is twice more than Odessa, the population - is twice less. we Will begin

with small historical digression. The unitary state of Malta will become only in the 1964th year when Great Britain begins to legalize the refusal of imperial essence. Up to this point three islands and seven rocks to the south from Sicily will witness blossoming and decline of one and all states and empires of the civilized world. At the same time local latitudes plainly haven't grown up own cultural background though demand for him is obviously available (in the modern global and cross-cultural world such need is felt by all developing economies).

Long ago the states of crusaders have fallen, Constantinople is called 80 years Istanbul, the most part of the Mediterranean is turned into Islam, the South of Central Europe is subdued, and only the winter forces Ottomans to raise a siege from Vienna.

Thus, the last chance of Europeans of presence in the Mediterranean Sea - a small group of the religious fanatics driven through centuries through Cyprus and Rhodes from Jerusalem.
