    I read several articles. By "recall," I understood it to mean exactly what you've said (and Smoh too) upthread: to call back for discussions. The media's used a few terms like summons and such. I apologize about using the term "recall" because I didn't think about how it sounded permanent at the time; I meant they were "called back home." That's it.

    The nastiness is another issue, and it's not I-P based, and so that's why I would like to see it not brought into I-P diaries. If posters have personal grievances with other posters for ancient history unrelated to a topic, bringing that into a diary with lots of active participants is not fair to all of those trying to stay on track to talk about the issue right now.

      but I think there is still some confusion here about the "called back home" thing.

      I just wanted to clarify a little further referring to the comment above, so that others in the community are not getting inaccurate information -- my understanding from the various articles I've read is that they are not being "called back home." I think they are being "summoned" or "called" to the foreign ministry office of the country in which they are serving in order to receive a message from that country.  I believe this is a standard protocol for registering a complaint to a country with which you have formal diplomatic relations, ambassadors, etc.

      I also agree with your comments about dragging up ancient history. I didn't see JesseCW or anyone else do that here though, except you. As far as I can see, we are all commenting on topic and you are the one who is dragging up old arguments. Markos has advised that each conversation between kossacks in a diary should be considered a sort of a "clean slate", without dragging in old grudges or convos from another diary, etc.,  and that is exactly how it is being treated here. I don't know why we can't have this perfectly "on topic" discussion here without dragging in old stuff or mentions of old stuff. I think that is a bad idea.

      Anyway, I have to run.  I  am just popping in here for a minute then have to log off again and continue with pile of work that I have on my plate right now, and have to deal with the kids who will be walking in the door any minute, get dinner, etc. My life is too busy to spend all day and night online arguing with people.

          what you mean by this.  

          See, this is what I mean.

          The whole thing has become convoluted because one person got it wrong and then refused to just get honest and admit it, and instead made it even more confusing.  

          Phoned home? Went home?  None of the above.  Got summoned to the foreign ministry office of the country in which they served.  Did not get sent home or called home.

          Gah.
