kind of sounds like all the peoples swallowed up by soviet expansion.

nice

Yeah, that's one way to look at it. Another way is to look at it like the Romans came out on top in the big street rumble. Rome vs. Carthage was *not* Russia vs. Lithuania. The Romans beat people that could have, and sometimes nearly did, grind them underfoot. The Soviets were just a land grab.

Also, maybe the Romans would have stayed home if the Gauls hadn't originally sacked their city. :)

thats fine but my real point is that being occupied and forced to live under foreign control is not the same as touchie feelie feel good multiculturalism that is promoted as the cure for all the ills of modern life.
