  • Valcarenghi, D. et al. Kilim Anatoliai, Antiche Tappetti Tissuti dell Turchia ; Milan: 1985.
  • Valcarenghi, Dario Kilim History and Symbols New York Electa Abbeville 1994.

Vambery, Arminius.

  • Most likely a agent Provocateur of the Austro-Hungarian Empire that was involved in thwarting the ambitions of Czarist Russia.

    H.B. Paksoy wrote "Vambery, it is now known, was working for the British government.28" in ALPAMYSH. Central Asian Identity under Russian Rule. http://www.ukans.edu/~ibetext/texts/paksoy-1/chapter_1.html citing 28. "For archival references, see M. Kemal Oke, "Prof. Arminius Vambery and Anglo-Ottoman Relations 1889-1907" Bulletin of the Turkish Studies Association, Vol. 9, No. 2. 1985." I am not at this point ruling out that he worked for both and will pursue this in the future.

Van Eyck, Jan.

Vance, Cyrus.

  • Secretary of State under President James "Jimmy" Carter.
  • Cyrus Vance was a man quick to appease and slow to react. He seemed so weak in response to the spread of Soviet aggression that I always saw him as the American version of Neville Chamberlain. Vance was almost painfully shy. Vance was completely unsuited to work with Carter. Carter was so inherently weak that with a weak secretary our government had serious setbacks.
  • Vance accidentally invited the Russians to invade Afghanistan. Prior to the invasion of Afghanistan Russia unofficially asked what our reaction would be to the invasion. Vance had Hodding Carter deliver a stern warning not to invade. The Russians assumed since the warning came from an aide Vance was really signaling them we would not seriously object to an invasion. So to a great extent Vance's shyness was the cause of the Afghan war.
  • Cyrus Vance recommended Alexander Haig for sec of State. Rubin, Barry Secrets of State. Page 204.
  • In July 1993 Sandinistas came to power in Nicaragua overthrowing the Somoza Government. Cyrus Vance took the stance that we needed to work with the Sandinistas so that while they stayed leftwing they might maintain a nonaligned stance. Rubin, Barry Secrets of State. Page 218.
  • Cyrus Vance was Deputy Secretary of Defense under Robert McNamara and his closest advisor. He resigned in 1967 due to serious back problems. Paul Nitze replaced Vance. Hoopes. The Limits of Intervention. Page 52.
  • By the end of his time in office Carter thought Cyrus Vance was too passive and that Brzezinski was innovative. Rubin, Barry Secrets of State. Page 173.
  • Brzezinski thought Vance suffered from Vietnam Syndrome. Rubin, Barry Secrets of State. Page 174.
  • It was the crushing defeat of US Foreign Policy in Iran and Afghanistan that shifted Carter from Cyrus Vance to Brzezinski. Rubin, Barry Secrets of State. Page 175.
  • Warren Christopher was so boring that he made Vance look flamboyant. Rubin, Barry Secrets of State. Page 176.

Vase Carpet

  • Vase Carpets are a Persian Carpet defined by a particular structure. The weave uses wool warps and the wefts are two rigid wool singles, then sinuous silk or cotton singles and then two rigid wool singles. Vase carpets are generally attributed to Kerman because of similar construction in 19th century Kermani carpets. Recent evidence and a review of the older evidence shows that Kerman is unlikely and the probable place of origin for the vase carpets is Khorasan Province in both Mashad and Sabzevar in the sixteenth century. The carpets most likely originated in the workshops of Ibrahim Mirza.
