Ok, Kremlin is banning South Park and Simpsons!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the end! The cold blooded monsters that sit in Moscow have finally shown their true totalitarian face! What a load of ***!
So, why no one complains when “GTA” gets banned in USA and it is OK when “Visions of Ecstasy” gets banned in UK by BBFC, but when Russians decide that crude and often disgusting humor of South Park is too much for kids it is called “Soviet-style indoctrination”.
On Thursday, the Federal Parliament’s Joint Standing Committee on Treaties had recommended against ratification of the uranium export agreement signed by John Howard and Vladimir Putin last September.
I am sure this will be haled by the USA and treated as proper and adequate response to “Russian threat”. And of course, even thought the premise of Russia using this uranium for military goals is retarded (Russia being the third largest supplier of uranium in the world and all really can’t find it anywhere else) no one will think that this is exactly the kind of use of resources as a threat that Condoleeza Rice was accusing Russia in just yesterday.
Once again, the double standards rule. Nice!
Hmm… In Russia there is a saying, “The less you know the better is your sleep”… There is definitelly some truth to it. I certainly started to worry a lot more since i’ve started this blog and got a habbit of reading news and digging around for additional information.
Now, can someone tell me that the following is a complete bullshit please! Because a lot of it makes too much sense. And if it is true, the world is a much darker place to be than I thought it is…
The movie is coming from here: http://www.uaff.us/ I am not claiming it is true. I don’t live in USA and have no idea how bad it is. For all I know it can be the same kind of propaganda that Russia gets pounded with lately. But if it is true… what right does the American government have to pursue democracy in other countries!
More under the fold…

It is interesting how certain things just come together at one point in time. As I already mentioned it is really depressing for me to see that the majority of searches that land on the blog are “hate Russians” and “why Russians hate America”. This really made me think that I should go back and maybe rewrite some things to explain more clearly the point of view of 80%+ of Russian population in regards to expansion of NATO and general American politics in the last 20 years.
The comparison that came to my mind was that of Germanic and Gaelic tribes that experienced Roman expansion when it was at the peak of its power. Think about it. A large and powerful country comes your way and tries to impose the influence on the premise that it is “more advanced” and “a core of the civilized world”. Naturally the powerful country doesn’t give a damn about the “barbarian” countries that it tries to subjugate as they are inherently unworthy of their independence.
Too many depressing posts lately. Here is something fun for a change. A few Russian and Soviet cartoons that I think you might enjoy 🙂
So, the blog was up for 4 days now and here is some statistics… These are the terms that people used to find the blog. 5:1 victory goes to “Hate”.
I have to say I am shocked and depressed to find that. Not even one search for Georgia… Looks like everything is even worse than I thought.
Here is a great analysis of the whole situation in Georgia that I found at OpenDemocracy.net . The author – Rein Müllerson is professor and chair of international law at King’s College, London. He has been a member of the United Nations Human Rights Committee (1988-92), visiting centennial professor of the London School of Economics and Political Science (1992-94), and first deputy foreign minister of Estonia (1991-92).
Although I personally believe that it is not so much about the differences in political systems and more about resources that are getting more and more sparce on our planet, I generally share the same opinion as Dr Müllerson. I believe he is making a lot of sense and presenting it much better than I ever would. But you can make your own judgement.
