    Sounds like you want to become a Turk.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    IMO, Russia, needs the help of those truly gifted, even more than our nation.
    But this depends so much on ones attributes .
    I think Russia needs help in economics, we need help in the "social " field.

    I have a friend graduate getting warning shots fired at him now.

    Sounds exciting. As long as they aren't warning shots to the skull with submachine guns like in the first blockade breaker.

    Russia: Dept of state? NGO? Or local operation?

    Just to note: wherefore means, most simply, why, not where, so your thread title is asking why are you SE102.

    Wherefore - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    Sorry, pet peeve.

    1. SE102 is neither Romeo nor Juliet.

    2. Peace Corps (or military), get some perspective. Travel is absolutely essential to personal development, as is experiencing other cultures, livelihood systems and standards of living.

    3. Grad school. This is best after some experience.

    Gratz w/school, there's a lot more.


    Or, colonize the pacific garbage flotilla, but don't forget I got dibs on the real estate.

    Sorry, one of the most famous lines in English literature, and so many people get it wrong. Juliet is not asking "where are you Romeo?" which would be kinda bland, but "why are you Romeo?", meaning "why are you a Montague, who are the enemy of my family?".

    Edit: foreign travel is awesome, even though the biggest thing you will get out of it is an appreciation for how great home is. I personally totally love Japan, and I think you would find teaching English there very rewarding, but all the options do look pretty cool. In the long run, do what you think would be the most rewarding for you, and work best for your long range goals, and for god's sake have fun while doing it.

    I went with Option Number 6: Go to Detroit and teach English. Lord knows they need it more than the Japanese do.
