We need Austria in this game, their greatness cannot just be put under the German title. Germany and Austria, though similar peoples are not the same place and the Greatness of Austria in the history of Europe far outways that of people's current winge fest Poland. Austria has been a dominent power over Eastern Europe and for a long period in History the corner stone of the Hapsburg Empire. To even consider Poland before Austria would be like thinking Al Gore really believes in what he's doing [look up his house]. We must also remember I mean Austria before the compromise of the 1850's were they had to split the Empire in two into Austria and Hungary instead of just the Great Austria. They were much more powerful before this and we must remember this. Frans Josef is also a definite no because of the compromise. We need Austria nearly as much as Israel and we need Poland about as much as we need AIDS or Al Gore. Think wisely people.
