    (1) Theirs not to reason why,
    Theirs but to do and die:

    From what poem is this line taken and who wrote it?

    The Charge of the Light Brigade – Alfred Lord Tennyson

    (2) Can you name the belligerents for the siege of Sevastopol which took place from September 1854 until September 1855?

    France. England and the Ottoman Empire versus Russia

    (3) It’s subterfugio in Spanish, sotterfugio in Italian, too easy in French and увертка (uvertka) in Russian = in English?

    Subterfuge

    (4) Can you name the belligerents for the siege of Sevastopol which took place from October 1941 until July 1942?

    Nazi Germany, Romania, and Italy versus the USSR

    (5) Looking forward to an extra hour in bed this Sunday?

    Probably not.

    Sevastopol of course has just been taken again which has increased the sabre rattling against Russia that has been evident ever since Ukraine had the temerity to take the Russian Bailout package offered by her sister next door and not submit to the much smaller and draconian IMF one.

    Still toppling an elected Government in the name of “promoting freedom and democracy™ ” has bought Ukraine into line and their new “legitimate” (1) Government has submitted to the IMF.

    (1) Legitimate – John Kerry speak for the Government that installed by the USA that will comply with what the USA wants.

    And to everyone’s horror and surprise Vladimir Putin has denied these “freedom and democracy™” promoters Russia’s Black Sea Naval base.

    How many civil wars has the Nobel Peace Prize winning President engineered now?

    I lost track after he bombed Libya into anarchy in the name of promoting “freedom and democracy™”
