Windows to Russia

Putin this Sunday is to go to the Bush family’s oceanfront estate in Kennebunkport, Maine. There will not be a lot said about this meeting. This is an opportunity for the two most powerful men on earth to discuss issues that the media plays games with, like Missiles, Cold War, and Vodka!

This is a good time of the year to BBQ in America. Potato salad, hot dogs, hamburgers, deviled eggs, coleslaw, baked beans, and Budweiser Beer!! I wish I could be there.

This is one of those meetings that a saying of my Grand Ma fits. “If only you could be a fly on the wall, the things you would hear” She is right!

The thunder is Crashing and the Lightning is Flashing. Boza our dog is hiding under the bed. I am enjoying the cool air and the refreshing of the ozone. The air smells wonderful and fresh.

The weather in Moscow is identical to the weather that I grew up with. It brings back many memories. Memories that were from a good childhood, My family was poor but I had all I could eat and never bored. I grew up on a farm most of my life. I can remember seeing the rain clouds rolling in, fast. At the last moment I would run for the barn and jump in the hay and play while the thunder rolled. Sometimes we had to go to the storm shelter or cellar and hide when tornadoes would be present.

Life is good, my Grand Ma always said: “Just look for the cloud with the silver lining! Every thunder storm has one of those clouds!”

The sun just came out while it was raining: A rainbow just appeared! My Grand Ma is smiling, for that would be the silver lining, as she would say!!

WE ARE THY OWN, ENEMY!!

Hello Take a read at a 1983 article,

(“The enemy within”

“Psychiatrist John Gleisner argues that we must develop a totally new way of thinking about ‘the enemy’ to avert a nuclear catastrophe.”

“‘GOTCHA!’ screamed the headline in the London Sun the morning after a British submarine sank the Argentinian warship General Beigrono in the South Atlantic last year. The 360 sailors who went down with their ship were only Argies— the enemy— and cheers resounded in pubs up and down the country.

Many were shocked to hear British people chant ‘nuke the Argies’ and to see how the Ministry of Defense and the media portrayed Argentina as a nation of international gangsters. It was a shock, but it should not have been. After all, governments and media throughout the world have perfected a psychological war machine which is highly efficient in fostering fear and hatred of ‘the enemy’. True, for us in the West the enemy these days is usually portrayed as toting a red flag and a fistful of nuclear missiles, but the fear and hatred are free-floating and can be attached, by skillful maneuvering, to any object.

Softened by centuries of insecurity, our minds are malleable clay for the psychological war machine. There have often been good grounds in the past for fearing the enemy, and the distinction between ‘them’ and ‘us’ was once necessary for survival. But nuclear weapons have changed everything.

Today that ancient them us distinction threatens the survival of them and us. As Einstein once said: ‘The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything except our way of thinking. . . we need an essentially new way of thinking if mankind is to survive.’

The old them-us thinking is dangerous because it leads us to accept the unacceptable. And the reasoning goes something like this:

‘The Russians are basically different from us. They are wicked bullies who intend to take over the world. We can stop them only by threatening them because bullies only respond to threats. And because they are basically different from us it is alright to destroy them if necessary. Nuclear weapons are terrible but it may be that the Russians cannot be stopped by any other means. Although nuclear war would be horrible, we have a reasonable chance of surviving. And anyway life under Russian rule would be far worse than death.’

If any individual spoke about another using logic like this they would be diagnosed as paranoid. And, indeed, them-us thinking is a time-honoured symptom of psychosis (a psychotic being someone who can no longer distinguish between events in the world and events taking place in their imagination), characterised by what psychologists call ‘denial’ and ‘projection’.

‘Denial’ is refusing to acknowledge one’s own unpleasant motives. ‘Projection’ is attaching these unacknowledged motives onto someone else and then rejecting them. It is the perfect way of having your cake and eating it too: of indulging your own bad motives and criticising them at the same time.

Our media and governments depict the Russians as aggressive expansionists bent on our destruction. A powerful perception of threat is created to soften up the public for yet more ‘defence’ spending, And in the Soviet Union precisely the same tricks are used to persuade Soviet citizens to make the necessary ‘sacrifices’ for protection against us.

Most of us have never met a Russian. Yet there are few of us without opinions about how dangerous they are. We tend to see our own country as conciliatory, just, trustworthy, rational, legitimate. Theirs is aggressive, unjust, untrustworthy, irrational and illegitimate. Yet anyone travelling in the Soviet Union is soon struck not only by the Soviets’ strong belief in their own peacefulness, but also by their surprise and puzzlement at the fact that foreigners do not view them in the same light. They fear us — for precisely the same reasons that we fear them.

The noted sociologist and psychologist Gregory Bateson drew an analogy between nuclear deterrence and drug addiction: the ‘fix’ (new weapon) gives a sense of well being that gradually fades only to require a bigger fix. What the two also have in common is a powerful dose of denial. Denial of the danger of nuclear war underlies government thinking on defense. The public’s denial may be less strong, but they are hampered in their understanding by a pervading sense of powerlessness, which in turn leads to more denial: nuclear war may well happen. But not to me.

Our thinking cannot change without combating denial and projection the mechanisms of the psychological war machine. Logical argument in the face of paranoia is as ineffective as with a person in the grips of a psychotic episode. Emotion is what’s needed emotion directed appropriately. Fear of nuclear war and its effects are legitimate and appropriate and can lead to reappraisal of the old fear the Russian threat. Another method of penetrating denial is to look for the absurdity in the whole upside-down logic of the old them-us thought structure.

Confronting denial and projection can be painful, disorienting and can leave one feeling powerless. But another new belief network is gaining ground. The peace movement is at last building another way of thinking that can sway governments as countless people are daring to reject the old them-us psychology. But the question is: can we develop this new way of thinking in time to avert catastrophe?

Dr John Gleisner, a consultant psychiatrist at the North Western Regional Health Authority in Greater Manchester, is active in the Medical Campaign Against Nuclear Weapons.”)

Hello again,

I remember well the days of the Cold War, This article from 1983, is a perfect example of the mind set from that era. Dr. John Gleisner, all well known Psychiatrist. Put the whole issue in a nut shell, as we say in America. The people of America had never even seen a Soviet. But because the government was so active in propaganda. The Americans had an opinion about someone that they did not know.

This mind set will never change in America until the people accept the fact that the USA government plays games with them, Mind Games!

If the US plan goes ahead as expected, high powered radars from Poland will be able to cover all of European Russia, and a good chunk of Siberia as well:

At the same time, it illustrates just why Central/Eastern Europe is such a perfect site for this anti-missile system.

  • It’s directly in between any missiles that may be fired from Iran towards the US.
  • It’s almost directly in between any missiles that might head towards Western Europe.
  • It’s sufficiently far enough away to allow interceptors to be launched in good time.
  • It’s perfectly placed to mesh with US-based radars covering the Atlantic and Arctic oceans.
  • Oh yes – and it just happens to have a bonus feature allowing sneak peaks into Russian airspace…”

 

 




HELLO,

1st picture- environmentally safe antifreeze.
2nd picture- antifreeze kills animals.
3rd picture- High powered racing antifreeze, For Those On The Go!
4th picture- Do not waste that old antifreeze!

((“sometimes at a rate of two votes per second, more than 25,000 testified to being “regular” consumers of antifreeze and the like. Even after BBC computers zeroed out the results the next morning, the votes kept piling in, with over 90% blithely confirming suspicions that Russians are pretty much liquored up all the time.”))

Were you asked to vote in a BBC poll. Thousands of Russian blogger and Internet users have visited the BBC website to answer to the question. “Do you drink, eau de cologne, antifreeze, and detergents?” The answer ‘Regularly” was the most popular in the poll at about 90%.

Russian Internet users in the past have helped to push one other prank question to the top position: “Is Russia going to deploy combat android robots for protection of its borders?” Never underestimate the power of Russian blogger. Especially when it is something relatively mindless.

There are a lot of Russians on the Internet. It was said, that so many responses came in that the servers were over loaded. That even when the poll was shut down for the overload, that when reopened it was still being heavily hit.

This was a poor poll for BBC to put out, I understand that these polls are computer generated at times. So this might be an example of that. A computer logical question but not human logical. Also the translation from different languages can cause question problems. I think that BBC should scan the poll questions before posting.

I can tell you from living in the USA and now Moscow, The drinkers of alcohol are just as bad in America. You have a bar on every corner and every quick stop sells beer. So Americans could be asked the same question, Home brew is very popular in the USA and I personally knew some interesting characters that went blind drinking rubbing alcohol.

Hello,

Had fun today, NOT!

Purchased a web domain today, moved my blog site to the new domain and lost everything. Took me hours to get it all back. Now the blog is on the new domain. kylekeeton.com instead of kylekeeton.blogspot.com
I have my own spot now in the Internet world.

The transfer was not easy and was not fun. I did get everything working. Now I am publishing this article.

Want to thank my Wife for being patient with me, because I can get grumpy at times. This was one of those times. :)

Kyle




Hello,

I have a hard time thinking that the two most powerful Presidents did not go home after the G-8 meeting and say to the family, (God what I just had to go through for world peace!) Sometimes even the “elite” has to play nice!

I find it interesting that Bush invited Putin to his Texas Ranch. Interesting to see if Putin will go.

I am glad it went well, Now Bush just needs to forget about those missiles in Europe!

The three pictures are of the three types of mosquitoes that live in Russia…

1st picture- normal Moscow variety, just slightly irritating…

2nd picture- this mosquito lives in normal cities and towns, people carry shotguns to kill them. This variety has been known to carry off cats and dogs when traveling in packs of 20 to 30 mosquitoes at a time…

3rd picture- This is the mosquito that lived in the Village I stayed at. The photo was taken at 100 meters and still could only get his head in the photo. This is a Giant Killer Village Mosquito. Bred in the Russian country side. (Now you know why the Villages are empty): Takes Army tanks and rocket launchers to kill them!!!

Other than Giant Killer Mosquitoes, The Villages are perfect!

1st picture- typical Russian byway.

2nd- road to our Village!

3rd- Village house that my Wife and I stay at, Her mother owns the house.

4th- Sunset at the Village (Sunrise to Freedom).

5th- The Village!

Hello,

This is some of what I love about Russia. I was raised a country boy in America. It is just natural that I love the Russian country.

Now about the roads! I got to get me a 4×4 van, Russian made. Then I can make my own roads.

Kyle

Picture of work being done to Monastery.

I just got back from The Village called, Sunrise to Freedom. As I drove home I thought about the 12 people that live there.

8 women and 4 men.

Now you would think that 12 people living in a Village, many km from society and road that only a mountain goat would love, would all live in peace and harmony.

Not so! There are two ladies that I call goat ladies,(they have goats). One lady is cow lady. (yes she has a Cow!) There is Well guy, (he operates the pump for the water). There is Orange car guy, (Yes orange Car). There is a lady I call Garden Lady ( great veggie garden). The rest of the people stay hidden. Most likely to stay out of trouble. :)

The two goat ladies where best friends for like 50 plus years, but now they wont talk to each other, something about grand kids fighting or something. But cow lady is friends with both goat ladies, so she has to be careful about who she converses out in the open with. Well guy loves anyone who has Vodka, So he wanders from home to home looking for vodka. Well guy agrees with all the ladies and likes everyone. Now we have a new comer to this community. (no not me).

We have a Pope as they call him in Russia. I call him Preacher Boy! He has decided to rebuild the Monastery. He has bought about 4 of the houses and brought in 6 to 8 workers. They live there now! What use to be a Monastery for women is now going to be for men only. So I guess you could say the Village is growing.

Preacher Boy, has brought several government officials and other people to his new found Monastery. He comes in about once a day for about 10 minutes. Then he blesses the world while talking on his cell phone and leaves, not to be seen until the next day. He also drives an new Audi. Preacher Boy is doing very well for himself.

So I say 12 people that live there all their lives and now about 8 that live there part time. 15 people that visit couple times of the year. A Pope who visits daily, now and one Cow!

Oh, yes! One American who goes and visits. :)

Then my Wife said, “This place is too crowded”

She is Right!!!!!!!

Kyle

Hi,

Going to be gone a week. Taking a trip to a Russian Village. About 350 km South from Moscow. I will take pictures of everything. Then I will let everyone know what I saw and found. I love spending time in Villages. So peaceful and quiet. Looking forward to goats milk, YUMMY!

Have a good week.

This article gave me thoughts on the future. I realized that the two most powerful countries in the world have their presidents leaving office next year. Changing of the guard so to speak! What do you think will happen, Will relations get better or worse? Is the cold war going to start back up again? It is thought provoking at the very least.

I think with Bush leaving office, that it will help the relationship between the countries. Bush was one of those Presidents that should have had only one term. (Thats another story) American politics are corrupt! America likes to point fingers at other countries in hopes that no one will look at America. Sorta like crying Wolf!

Published: June 5, 2007

“”PRAGUE, June 4 — At a moment of rising tensions between Washington and Moscow, President Bush and President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia appear likely to use a meeting in Germany this week to focus on the one area where they appear to share a common interest: slowing Iran’s ability to produce nuclear fuel.

On virtually everything else — independence for Kosovo, missile defense and a sharp turn toward authoritarianism in Russia — Mr. Bush’s aides say they expect to have little leverage over Mr. Putin. Over the weekend, the Russian president threatened to once again point missiles at European targets if the United States went through with its plan to build a missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic.

“If part of the strategic nuclear potential of the United States finds itself in Europe and, according to our military experts, threatens us, then we will have to take corresponding retaliatory steps,” Mr. Putin said, according to a Kremlin transcript of an interview with journalists from Group of 8 countries that took place on Friday. “What are these steps? Of course, we will have to have new targets in Europe.”

Asked about the cold war era of hair-trigger confrontation, Mr. Putin said, “We are, of course, returning to those times.”

In fact, with Mr. Bush headed here to speak at a democracy conference, the countries’ relations are at their lowest point since the end of the cold war, and with fears that the deteriorating relationship could rapidly worsen. Even an invitation to the Bush family compound at Kennebunkport, Me., next month appeared to do little to temper Mr. Putin’s public remarks.

The White House national security adviser, Stephen J. Hadley, called Mr. Putin’s remarks “not helpful,” a phrase he has used many times in recent weeks in response to remarks from Russia’s leadership.

Last month, Mr. Putin issued a thinly veiled comparison of the foreign policy of the United States and the Third Reich, warning of “new threats” that amount to the “same contempt for human life and the same claims of exceptionality and diktat in the world.”

Meanwhile, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, David Kramer, delivered a blistering assessment of the Kremlin last week, accusing it of bullying its neighbors and silencing political protest at home.

The question at the meeting of the Group of 8 industrialized nations in Heiligendamm, Germany, and the visit to Kennebunkport will be whether the two leaders can get past the verbal sparring to engage in genuine cooperation — and if they cannot, what the United States can do about it.

Similar questions were raised a year ago, as the two men prepared to meet at the last meeting of the Group of 8, on Mr. Putin’s home turf in St. Petersburg, Russia.

“It’s a long way from ‘I looked in his eyes and saw his soul,’ ” one member of the American national security staff said, referring to Mr. Bush’s assessment of Mr. Putin the first time they met, in June 2001. As they stood side by side, Mr. Bush said then, “More than a decade after the cold war ended, it is time to move beyond suspicion and towards straight talk.”

“I think there must have been peals of delirious laughter echoing around the ornate chambers of the Kremlin when the invitation to go to Kennebunkport arrived,” said Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was national security adviser to President Carter. “Putin has been spitting at the United States for the last year, and what is the reaction? An invitation to a family gathering.”

Some experts say the Kennebunkport invitation was meant to defuse any potential blowups during the Heiligendamm meeting by enabling the two leaders to put off their substantive talks until July. Others say that whenever they expect fireworks between Mr. Bush and Mr. Putin, the pair disappoint. Still, there are no guarantees.

“You can’t be sure,” said Stephen Sestanovich, a Russia expert at the Council on Foreign Relations. “Putin is on a tear. Day after day he is ramping up the rhetoric. He is in kind of a snarling frame of mind and it may be that he will pick a fight at the G-8, but that hasn’t been his habit. The G-8 mode is good fellowship and good manners.”

But that has not been the mood this past year. Mr. Putin made his biggest statement at a speech at a European defense forum, an indictment of American practices that brought a mild and humor-filled rebuttal from Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates.

“There were a lot of negative parts to the Putin speech, a lot of harsh words,” said Brent Scowcroft, who was national security adviser to Mr. Bush’s father and an early architect of the transition to the new relationship with Russia. “But it’s important to read the whole speech, especially the last part on nuclear issues, where Putin listed a lot of areas for cooperation.”

Indeed, both Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Mr. Hadley, the national security adviser, have pointed in recent days to Russian cooperation on limiting Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Ms. Rice, speaking last week in Potsdam, Germany, described the American-Russian relationship as one of “cooperation and competition, of friendship and friction.”

But the limits of that cooperation have yet to be tested, because the United States has not yet tried to get mandatory sanctions in many parts of Iran’s financial network, as a penalty for Tehran’s continuing efforts to enrich uranium. As to the friction, Mr. Hadley seemed to throw up his hands at efforts to persuade Russia to accept the American missile defense plan.

“I cannot tell you, for the life of me, why they say no,” he said.

Clearly, the harsh words do not make things any easier, and the administration has been trying to tamp things down. Mr. Hadley said senior American officials raised Mr. Putin’s “Third Reich” reference directly with their Russian counterparts, “and they told us that they were not making any comparison between the United States and the Third Reich.”

Critics of the administration, including Mr. Brzezinski, say the decline in American-Russian relations is a byproduct of Mr. Bush’s heavy emphasis on building a personal relationship with Mr. Putin, instead of a strategic one.

Mr. Sestanovich, the Russia expert, said that Mr. Bush had hoped he could overcome the countries’ long-standing tensions, but that this became more difficult as Mr. Putin evolved from a leader who seemed like “a determined modernizer” into “an anti-Western autocrat.”

This will be Mr. Putin’s last G-8 meeting, and it will be Mr. Bush’s next to last. As to whether relations can improve, either between the men or their countries, Mr. Sestanovich responded, “Look to 2009.”

Hi World,

I am a Grandpa

Little Jaydan, born in Springfield, Missouri. Just about a little more than a week ago.

I am a happy Grandpa!

Kyle Keeton

The nights this time of the year are very short. I am not use to such long days. I can still see outside at midnight and three thirty in the morning, I can see light again. That is strange to me. I noticed that the days were very short in the winter. That was just as strange to me. I come from much farther South in the world.

The weather has gotten much better and allot more comfortable. The heat was pretty bad here, now they tell me its more normal. 70 degrees F. day and 50 degrees F. nights. Very nice!

The air is very clear today, I can see from my 14Th floor about 4-5 km in the distance.

The birds are singing like crazy today, The doves are everywhere!

The rain is coming, I can feel it in my bones! When I hurt in all my old injuries, I know the rain is coming. I stopped listening to a weather man years ago. My grouchy bones are better at telling the weather. :)

The World Just keeps turning!

Kyle



Hi,

Today I was having my morning coffee, I could hear the kids playing, the dogs barking and the Moms discussing the world problems. :) I thought to my self, This is normal. This is nice.

What I mean by saying that is, the world right now is at peace, at least in my neighborhood. I put in pictures that I just took. First one is typical Moscow housing. Called Flats. The second one is flats and the playground that is with the flats for kids to play on and in. The third is what flats look like from a distance, Lots of people living in a small area.

The point to all this is that the living accommodations in Moscow are not bad. The people all live the same. The kids have lots of play area off the streets, They always have forests near the flats. You can take long walks and have peace of mind. You can let your kids run and not worry about cars running over them. The designing of the flats and living areas show much planning and forsite. It shows intelligence. It shows care for people. Their needs and desires. This was all done in the Soviet era, Funny, I as am American and was told that Soviets were a cold, no heart, scourge, and hooligans. That Soviets could care less about the people.

What is bad, is that I have come over here and found a society that is being Raped by Capitalist processes. A society that is growing and doing better. But not because of Capitalism. Because the people and their leaders are working hard to be their own society. Not a dream from America or Britain. I see a country that has a stable money supply, A country that has a strong leader, a balanced budget, and people with desires to be stepping to the future. The one fault I see in Russia sometimes they can be a bit of a Bully!

I don’t see this any more in America. I see Americans with a huge World debt, no future, and sometimes they are a BIG BULLY. That is sad, I am from America and I see this as a problem!

The people here are content and happy.

Can you say the Same ???

Kyle

I went shopping today. To get food for the flat. I left the flat with my sweety and kissed her goodbye. I walked to my favorite store that has lots of food items. I shopped and went to pay. After the girl rang all items up, I asked for two plastic bags. In Russia you do not get free plastic bags. You must buy them.

I asked the girl in my broken Russian, Packet (bag) I pointed and she looked at me. I said English from America. I asked again for packet.

Then she said: Oh, you want a bag! (in English) I just stood there dumb. She gave me 4 bags and I paid.

Sometimes the English language comes from the weirdest places. It surprises me now when I hear English spoken.

I love this country!

When I came to Russia I brought my little dog. She was 18 years old, But she wanted to come. She loved to travel more than anything, and this was to be her last trip. She did it in style and loved the jet trip and she loved Russia.

The hardest part was getting international papers for Sneaky. Had to have a vet sign off on the fact she was ok to travel. She was healthy just very old. got paper signed and put Sneaky in pet carrier. Then carried her as my carry on luggage. Got to Moscow and nobody cared that we had papers or not for her. just carried her through the gates and she was in Russia!!!

Sneaky loved Russia, We got here in October and Sneaky died December 10th 2006. She got to play in snow and she got carried by the best mommy in the world (Svet). She almost made it to Christmas, But she had a stroke and had to be put to sleep. I cried for two days. She was my buddy. She came to Russia with me and when she saw that I was going to have a good life she said goodbye.

18 years old is a long age for a doggy. She was a long red haired dachshund and about 5 pounds. Toy miniature dachshund.

We have a new dog now named Boza the Bear. We found him at a gas station. He is half German Shepard and half wire haired terrier. Svet fell in love with him, now we have a Boza. Sneaky would have liked him. She would have told him who is boss! :)

Driving home last week, my thoughts at first were on staying alive!

Why? You ask…

Because Russian drivers are so different than American drivers. Russian drivers are very aggressive. They always do the wrong thing at the wrong time, according to my thinking. Yes I said according to my thinking!

It dawned on me yesterday, I was at fault. I was thinking like an American. I was driving like an American. I expected everyone else to drive like an American. Big problem I am in Russia! :)

So I figured out that if I drove like them that I would be going with the grain instead of against the grain. Guess what it worked!

So I drove like a Russian. I drove the same way that Russians do. You see they all drive the same way. So how they drive is normal, The way I drove was not…

With this realization came the best drive I have had in Russia. It was 360+ km of really nice enjoyable ride…

I learn more everyday…

The picture is typical of pictures from my childhood, They were all meant to make us scared of Russia. Which Russia to America was the Soviet Union.

Once again I was drinking coffee. We have just come back from a trip from a small Russian village, The same that I have talked about in earlier articles. I was on my second cup and a thought came to me. Why did we fear the Soviet Union?

I sit in a country that at one time I was sworn to protect against. A country that I as an American was told would nuke us at any second. A country that I was told would infiltrate our society and corrupt our children.

That is very sad to think that as an American, I was led to believe that only the Devil himself was more evil than the Soviet empire!!

I never believed it! I always doubted it. But my government said it was true. I had to believe, Right! No, I did not! Now I am sitting in Russia with the woman of my dreams and am very happy.

Now I look out the balcony window in Moscow, Very comfortable, and I try to write a blog about one of the most misunderstood countries that I know about.

I have talked with soviets, (most in Russia are from the soviet era). It was not that long ago that the collapse happened. This article is not political so I will not get into why it collapsed. I will just say that the people who live in Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova. (Where I have been personally) All are trying to survive. They simply want to be left alone and want to have a good life. They want the government to do its job and run the country, but not take too many rights away from people. They want to have food to eat and cars to drive. They want to have a roof over their heads and shoes on their feet. They want their kids to have an education and most of all they want Peace! Simply Peace and quiet. The people I have met are not evil or bad. They are humans. You know people that inhabit the earth and destroy much of what they come in contact with. Just like Americans, Humans!!

Funny thing, I see that Russians are just like Americans.

Maybe that is what scares people, how much alike we really are.

Comments welcome.

Privet…

Over ten years ago I met the most wonderful Russian woman in the world! What started as friends on the Internet per e-mails and text messages, became a dream come true for this American...

I moved to Russia nine years ago and have never, one time, in all those years, regretted that move to Russia. In fact, I have realized over the years that Russia is safe, incredibly fantastic and a wonderfully explicit country to live and travel in...

I have been lucky in many ways and meeting a normal Russian woman whose main goal is not to leave Russia, that was a blessing in disguise, as I was the one who had to make the hard decision to leave my country. It was a decision that I have never ever regretted and it also opened my eyes to a whole new world of ideas and thinking's...

So welcome to Windows to Russia and stay a spell, sip a cup of coffee...

Walkum Talkum

The US led "War on Terror" is an open ended vehicle by which any people on the face of the planet who do not agree with America may be targeted by covert Western forces using methods like drone strikes, social media instigated color revolutions, assassinations, death squads, 'humanitarian' bombing, sanctions and blockades. America forgets that during their much lauded 'War of Independence', THEY were the saboteurs
and terrorists...

The current activities and narratives of the USA are solely based on their egregious efforts to expand their hegemony, no matter who is 'right' and who is 'wrong'...

The Kiev regime using the word 'Terrorist' to describe 4 million of your own citizens who don't accept a government installed by a foreign power is a prime example. While the world debates semantics, thousands of men women and children die and millions are chased away from their homes and nobody cares...
