BAGnewsNotes: Iraq: The Game

"The Times states 'Still, the British hired 30,000 German Hessians to help them battle the revolutionaries in the American War of Independence.' In NYC they made them the police, near the Fulton Ferry in Brooklyn where the Explorer's Club used to meet on Doughty Street (Rev. Doughty was the first English minister in New Amsterdam, his group of settlers burnt out of Masbeth, Queens). I read as many as 1/2 of yje Hessians over all defected from the British, perhaps over the British Policy. Many of the troops set against Virginians were Irish merceneries according to the remains analyized at Fort Niagara. Bad policy makes for defection, should we worry? ("Virginians were tall, Irish were short")
