We all know there have to be some sacrifices. What grates on me is that they're sputing all this "we're all in this together" rubbish. Yeah, some of us are just more in it that others, though. Is the...

We did do the Cold War, as well as Russian and Italian modern history. The Iran/Iraq war are too recent to be history, the Iraq war started when I was about to go into my GCSE years.
