If Azerbaijan does invade -- and it's hard to believe they won't ever give it a try -- then it'll put Russia in a hell of a bind. If they don't step in to defend Armenia, they look weak. If they do, they alienate Azerbaijan -- and does Russia really want another hostile neighbor in the Caucasus? Especially one with oil money to burn?

So, Russia's best line is to deter Azerbaijan. And the best way to do that is by making a convincing case that they /will/ intervene -- whether they actually will or not. The problem is, that makes it really hard to tell whether Russia is bluffing or not, since their behavior and statements would be pretty much identical either way.

I got 86%. One round was particularly good for me.

81%, and I think I can guess which round was good for you ;-) I surprised myself by getting all of that round right as well, but I was let down by my lack of knowledge of the history of US settlement.

79%. I thank Laurel and Hardy for telling me where the Blue Ridge mountains are, though I came a bit unstuck on the American colonial and civil war history!
