 1. Area between the Tigris and Euphrates.  Ancient historical region Mesopotamia is now present-day Iraq.
 Mesopotamia, an ancient Greek term meaning "the land between rivers," is considered to be the cradle of civilization because this is where we find the origins of agriculture, written language, and cities.

 + is a toponym for the area of the Tigris–Euphrates river system, corresponding to modern-day Iraq and to a lesser extent northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey and smaller parts of southwestern Iran.


  2 .City of Spain, it was a great city in the Roman Empire.
+ Tarragona  takes its name from the Tarraco (Colonia Iulia Vrbs Triumphalis Tarraco) of the Romans, who was the first city and capital of "Hispania Citerior" in the Republican era and also the name of a province of "Hispania Tarraconensis" at the Empire.

Tarragona: Model of the ancient Roman city.

We know that more than two thousand years was the residence of the Emperor Caesar Augustus and the Roman Empire capital. All this splendor, Tarragona keep a large monumental heritage which UNESCO declared a World Heritage Site in 2000.

+ Tarraco soon became a strategic point communication link and a very important base for the conquest of the peninsula that lasted over 200 years.Publius Cornelius Scipio, called "the African" saw in this rich piece of land a unique place to set up camp during the conquest of Hispania in 217 BC. Such was its importance that in 27aC the first Roman emperor, Augustus Caesar lived there for two years on his official visit to monitor the campaign against the rebels Astures.



  3. Vicar of St. Peter, Jesus Christ, a title taken by the popes.

+ Vicar of Christ: A title of the pope implying his supreme and universal primacy, both of honour and of jurisdiction, over the Church of Christ. It is founded on the words of the Divine Shepherd to St. Peter: "Feed my lambs. . . . Feed my sheep" (John 21:16-17), by which He constituted the Prince of the Apostles guardian of His entire flock in His own place, thus making him His Vicar and fulfilling the promise made in Matthew 16:18-19. 

the successor of Peter and the Vicar of Jesus Christ

+ In the course of the ages other vicarial designations have been used for the pope, as Vicar of St. Peter and even Vicar of the Apostolic See (Pope Gelasius, I, Ep. vi), but the title Vicar of Christ is more expressive of his supreme headship of the Church on earth, which he bears in virtue of the commission of Christ and with vicarial power derived from Him. Thus, Innocent III appeals for his power to remove bishops to the fact that he is Vicar of Christ (cap. "Inter corporalia", 2, "De trans. ep."). He also declares that Christ has given such power only to His Vicar Peter and his successors (cap. "Quanto", 3, ibid.), and states that it is the Roman Pontiff who is "the successor of Peter and the Vicar of Jesus Christ" (cap. "Licet", 4, ibid.). The title Vicar of God used for the pope by Nicholas III (c. "Fundamenta ejus", 17, "De elect.", in 6) is employed as an equivalent for Vicar of Christ.


 4. Ausonia: Ancient region of Italy, by extension all of Italy.
+ The Iraqis march against the allies of Spain (NATO and Kuwait) while the people have fun, laugh, celebrate banquetseveryone asleep or tricked: 

 -On the 25 September 1990, Saddam Hussein met with April Glaspie, an American ambassador, in Baghdad. Glaspie  believed that war was not imminent.....  she said.
 -On 2 August 1990 Iraq launched the invasion by bombing Kuwait City, the Kuwaiti capital. In spite of Iraqi saber-rattling, Kuwait did not have its forces on alert; the army had been stood down on 19 July.

+ The pope will flee and the final destination will be near the Rhone River (France) and the Vatican city still occupied , like Italy.The country will be occupied by foreign troops .
+ The war will start unexpectedly and its outcome will harm the Pope and Italy especially.

 A+ The allies of Spain: Officially the Kingdom of Spain is a sovereign state and a member of the United Nations, European Union, NATO, OECD, and WTO. The United States have a defense cooperation agreement with Spain, which regulates the presence of US troops in the military bases of Rota (Cádiz) and Morón de la Frontera (Seville) since the time of President Eisenhower .
+ This historic alliance commenced with the signing of the Pact of Madrid in 1953. Military facilities of the United States in Spain built during this era include Naval Station Rota and Morón Air Base, and an important facility existed at Torrejón de Ardoz. Torrejón passed under Spanish control in 1988. Rota has been in use since the 1950s. Crucial to Cold War strategy, the base did have nuclear weapons stationed on it for some time, and at its peak size, in the early 1980s, was home to 16,000 sailors and their families.

+ Spain is located in southwestern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. Its mainland is bordered to the south and east by the Mediterranean Sea except for a small land boundary with the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar; to the north and north east by France, Andorra, and the Bay of Biscay; and to the northwest and west by the Atlantic Ocean and Portugal.


B+ Relationship between Spain and Kuwait:

Kuwait's massive losses in Spain (1984 -1993)



-As the largest outside investor in the Spanish economy, the KIO has become a powerful and important institution in the country. The collapse of Grupo Torras, threatening tens of thousands of jobs in its subsidiaries, has become a huge headache for the government.


 -For the KIO, however, the Grupo Torras disaster is nothing short of a body blow. It is not so much the losses - which the Kuwaiti government has shown itself ready to write off - that are important, as the political implications in Kuwait and the damage the scandal will do to the emirate's credit while it is having to borrow to finance a budget deficit. Nasser al-Rodhan, Kuwait's Finance Minister, declared last week that what had happened with its Spanish investments was a 'disgrace in the history of Kuwait', which had damaged its financial reputation abroad.


  -His close association with the Kuwaitis began in 1984, when De la Rosa introduced the KIO to a highly profitable deal, buying a small Catalan paper mill called Inpacsa. From then on, the KIO's policy in Spain changed from its familiar stance of cautious and secretive investor to aggressive empire-builder. Based on the premise that the growing Spanish economy was about to boom, the KIO's senior managers in London plunged into it head first, advised by de la Rosa. The managers liked the way their new associate would come up with ideas quickly. Once established, Torras - which was formed out of a troubled Catalan company, Torras Hostench - was always run from De la Rosa's base in Barcelona, rather than from Madrid.


 -During the following seven years the KIO, through Torras, grew to be Spain's largest industrial investor apart from the government and the banks, controlling interests in several of the most important companies. These included Ercros, Spain's biggest chemicals group; Torras-Papel, its largest paper manufacturer; Ebro, its largest foods group; Prima, one of the biggest property developers; Amaya, the insurance company; and Industrias Bures, the textile group.


 -The final blow to the KIO's old regime came in the aftermath of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. Sheikh Ali Khalifa was cut out of the government installed after the liberation in 1991, and replaced by Nasser Abdullah al-Rodhan, long a critic of the KIO. The new Finance Minister, desperate for money to reconstruct Kuwait, examined the KIO's funds and found they had shrunk to less than dollars 40bn. The main loss had been in Spain.
