The Russian Bear is awakening from a 20-year hibernation… beyond the well-publicized attack of the Georgian country, the Russians are starting to revert to many of their harsh methods. For example, Stalin is making a comeback with Russian school teachers, who are telling their students that Stalin (the murderer of more than 10 million Russians) “was an effective manager”. More importantly, the tolerance for different opinions in Russia is starting to disappear. Most recently, the owner of a website that is critical of the Russian leadership was founded murdered.
Russia always reminds me of the Americna wild west in the 1800s, when laws were more of a suggestion.
