Here are some one liners...
The 80 Years' War in 'Those lands around there' -- High taxes, religious differences and an absentee king causes the Dutch to fight for independence. The war will be so bad that rules will be set that remain in force today. I also talk about selling Stinger missiles to Afghan rebels in 1979.
Paying Off the Ottomans and the Price of a Christian Life -- The Holy Roman Emperor pays protection money to the Sultan. I talk about how that protection money is still demanded today from Christians held at auction and what to do about it.
