No need to respond to the previous post. That member won't be with us any longer. What the heck did you write anyway?

Oh, sorry I forgot translating.

 

Well, I realised he is a very passionate Chechen and they often compare Russia to Rome and Chechnya to Carthage :))))

 

Therefore I wrote in Russian - Salam, Greetings to Johar Dudayev,

also, Son of Shamil Bassayev is my friends, studies in Azerbaijan, he always used to tell:

 

Let the enemy know for the centuries that we will stand on our knees only before Allah when we pray to him/her. 

 

something like that is the translation of the seconf sentence, below.

Tongwancheng

Xiongnu - asian hun capital city. The uncovered city occupies one square km in Jingbian County in northwest China's Shaanxi Province, adjacent to the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. It was built by more than 100,000 Xiongnu people in the year 419. Named "Tongwancheng", which means "unify all countries", the city is composed of three parts, the palace walls, the inner city and the outer city. Watchtowers stand at the four corners of the complex. The 16-30 meter thick city walls are made with sand and white-powdered earth mixed with glutinous rice water. This mixture made the earthen walls as hard as the stone walls.

From a distance, the white city looks like a giant ship. The southwestern turret, the highest of the four, is 31 meters high and looks like a ship's mast. The ruined city is now fenced with brush-wood, trees and grass.

"It is the most substantial, magnificent and well-preserved city to be built by any ethnic group in the history of China," said Zhu Shiguang, president of the China Ancient City Society.


During the Qin (221-206 B.C.) and the Han (206-220 B.C.) dynasties, the Huns subdued regimes ruled by other northern ethnic groups in the Western Regions which included present-day Xinjiang and parts of Central Asia, and became a big threat to the domain of feudal empires in the Central Plains.

During the first century B.C., the Huns were defeated by imperial troops led by Emperor Hanwu, the most famous in the Western Han Dynasty, and then split into two parts, the Northern Huns and the Southern Huns.

From the year 89 to 91 A.D., the main force of the Northern Huns, defeated by the Southern Huns and the imperial troops of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220) successively, moved to the Ili River valley, Central Asia, regions east to the Don River and the Volga River valley.

"The Huns played an important role in the world history, especially in the shaping of the European nationalities and the development of European history," said Lin Gan, a professor specializing in the study of Huns at the Inner Mongolian University.

My dear friend, I do not think that you say Anatolian Turkish lacks Q and Gh ( G'/─×) is entirely true. That lacks the sounds Q and Gh is not Anatolian Turkish but Istanbulite Standard Dialect which imposed as Standard Literary Language on the whole Anatolia.
Whether you call Turkish or Turkic, We are all Turks.

When Filimer , fifth King of Sweden, was entering Scythia, with his people, as we have before described, he found among them certain sorcerer women, whom they call in their native tongue Aliorumnas, or Al-runas, whom he suspected and drove forth from the midst of his army into the wilderness. The unclean spirits that wander up and down in desert places , seeing these women, made concubines of them, and from this unionsprang that most fierce people of the Huns who were at first little , foul ,emanciated creatures, dwelling among the swamps ,possessing only the shadow of hunman speech by way of language...... Nations whom they would never have vanquished in fair fight fled horrified from these frightful --- faces I can hardly call them , but rather ---shapeless black collops of flesh , with little points instead of eyes. No hair on thier cheeks or chins gives grace to adolescence or dignity to age, but deep furrowed scars instead down the sides of their faces, show the impress of the iron which with characteristic ferocity they apply to every male  that is born among them .... They are little in stature, but lithe and active in their motions, and especially skilful in riding , broadshouldered, good at the use of a bow and arrows, with sinewy necks, and always holding their heads high in their pride"  
 

Now if psychologist and psychiatrists observe the minds observing the world .... Freud and Jung would have had a field day with those Gothic accounts of the Huns.
