The Palestinian Territories are certainly not a country in the sense of an independent sovereign nation; that's just a fact. If you go by limited self-governance, then you must include Abkhazia at least.

The Palestinian Territories are recognized by more countries than Taiwan or Kosovo. Palestine also has UN observer status like Vatican City. The only reason why you don't call it a country is because you come from a country where it isn't recognized and you are biased.

They were thinking: let's put most of the ethnic Kazakhs into the SSR Kazakhstan, most of the ethnic Tajiks into the SSR of Tajikstan, most of the ethnic Azerbaijanis into the SSR of Azerbaijan, and so on...

Different approach than the British, who thought: let's draw a straight random line through the desert that bisects many different ethnic groups and hope for the best.

delete
Aug 19, 2016

Kal's not wrong, he's just stating the facts. The USSR allowed the semi autonomous republics to declare independence if they wanted. What the British did was send a guy (who had never ever been to India, nor studied about it)to randomly decide the lines of division in the country, dividing ethnicities and families along religious lines and damaging the economies on both sides(which would later spur a massacre and mass movement of people on three separate occasions).The actual affected people were never given any say. Those are the facts. What you make of them is up to you, it's just that some conclusions are more apt than others.

What people like Kal forget is that 'times they are a changing' what was seen as sensible 80 years ago is not relevant to todays decisions. To say Ah what someone did yesterday is better than what someone did 100 years ago is ludicrous. Today UK may definitely make different decisions than the historical decisions of yesteryear, but there are countries now making worse decisions with the knowledge of past mistakes available to all. The Scots should not have invaded Great Britain from Ireland in the 5/600s ad..... lets go back in history and find fault with all the decisions of mankind.

Crybaby, drew, I didn't forget anything. Please point out where I used any of these words: better, evil, good, bad, etc. As to being relevant today... ask someone from Iraq or Kurdistan or Palestine if they think this is relevant today. Yes, a long time ago, it would have been hard to predict what a powerful force nationalism would eventually become. That doesn't render discussion of decisions based on this ignorance irrelevant. And... they probably should have known this by the end of the 1940s at least. Your insecurities are showing again.

Everyone is arguing that the terrorist run Palestinian Territories are a country when it isn't, whereas poor old Islamic State doesn't even get a mention. They've got their own flag, government, army, tax-raising powers and a multi-billion dollar oil business that they run entirely on their own. Surely if one bunch of bandits get a mention because they are autonomous then others should too.

This is a fair point. Islamic State has a much better claim to sovereignty than Palestine. But nobody has recognized them because they are hated by literally everyone. State recognition often has more to do with popularity, sympathy, and (of course) politics than actual real sovereignty.
However, that said, Palestine has a (disputed, fragmented) government, they have a flag, they collect some tax revenue and exercise some civic authority, to varying degrees in different unconnected places. What Daesh most notably has that "Palestine" lacks is control over their own borders and territory, and a stable and centralized undisputed government.

All the people making definitive comments about the Middle East and saying things like: Pakistan is South Asia, not the Middle East; or Kazakhstan is Central Asia... has it occurred to you that these are vague, somewhat arbitrary and loosely defined cultural groupings with no definitive definition? It my experience people will argue for whatever definition they happened to first hear. Indeed any consideration of these groupings ("Middle East", "Central Asia", "South Asia") as absolute risks erecting nonexistent barriers in people's mind. Iran clearly has a great deal of cultural, historical, economic and political characteristics in common with the core Middle Eastern countries, with the Indian subcontinent and with Central Asia - to try and categorise it or any other nation as one or the other misses the point entirely. Instead picture a Venn diagram and these groupings are the overlapping circles. And stop arguing about subjective, arbitrary things.

It translates to "land of." Each country simply puts the name of its dominant ethnicity in front of "stan." So you've got "Land of the Uzbeks," "Land of the Turks," "Land of the Kazakhs," "Land of the Afghans," and so on. Makes very good sense, and it speaks to the fact that the borders were set along ethnic lines, rather than carved up indiscriminately.
