RT is an unknown quantity at this point

For a long I don't tour the Nick Beale's section, nd found a lot of interest in ..
but I found also a good occasion to start this thread, I hv to say , it hv nothing to do with the luftwaffe, or really at the margin of the margin, I want to speak about , what Nick call the "Bastille day", i.e. the 14.July , french national day, in fact as on the july 1789, really nothing happened , some drunk people, armed by the king cousin nd a business man who need the stones of the fortress, enter in the non-defended Bastille , killed some people in, nd "liberated" 3 or 2 "prisonners", more than the liberation , the killing of adm. people gives the trend to the whole revolution, one year later they made the "Fête de la fédération" nd after that nothing or quite nothing, until the 14.July 1880, the first national day, celebrating the "Fête de la fédération" nd not la Bastille, to add that also this celebration is a bit tricky, because as all people know, France is really not a féderation,as it was when the kings were ruling, but a very strong central state.
