What? The majority of Americans live in cities too, moron.

Yes, there`s seperation of labor in the global world. Those nations which are only good for digging manure are peasants, like Ukranians, the nations which can do something better, like to launch space ships like Russia, don`t bother with digging manure. They have countries like Ukraine for that.

Yes-- I appreciate the Russian effort at building space shuttle. They had one sucessful flight (by remote conrol-- nobody would risk heir lives in it) and then it was destroyed when the poorly maintained hanger it was stored in collapsed under snow load and destroyed it. The Russins did, however, do good job of rationalizing why they terminated the program.

As for your idioicy about manure etc. Just rememer not to criticize the farmers with your mouth full of food.

Oh yes maybe we should look at some wonderful inventions from the Russians such as 1) telephone 2) airplane 3) automobile 4) nuclear bomb etc etc. I know that they were really invented in other countries but the Russians claim that they did it first, and they wouldn't lie would they?( watch their lips- if they are moving they are lying)

Your space shuttles don`t fly anymore while Russian space ships work. NASA guys hitchhike Russian spaceships to get to space orbit station.

Nuclear bomb was invented in USA but not by Americans. Americans were those which tested it on Japaneese civilians though.
USSR made first commercial nuclear reactor, first passanger jet airliner, first settelite etc.

25 % of scientific discoveries in the world were made in USSR.

Not bad for a country which lost 27 mln. during the war.

I doubt that USA would be able to produce even bysicles if it had lost that many.

Shuttle does not fly by choice-- better units are being developed. BTW we now supply the ISS by means of cargo ships built and operated by (gasp) private companies (and at considerably less cost than either government can mange). Russians cannot do that.

Look again comrade-- every person working on the Manhattan project was an American Citizen. Even the traitors you relied on to smuggle the plans for nuclear energy were American Citizens.

While talking about borrowed talent-- if Russia had not captured the majority of German Rocket Scientists they would not have made half the proress they did. They made that progress by clustering smaller engines and it gave them a head start. U.S. developed larger engines. When they clustered them as in the Saturn rockets Russia was left in the dust as far as total thrust and lifting capacity. BTW--- I don't remembe seeing any videos of Russians landing on the moon. When was the last time the wonderful Russian space Agency landed a functioning rover on mars?

First passenger jet airliner-- meadow muffins- that honor goes to the DeHaviland Comet. First commercial nuclear reactor-- nonsense. Nice try but that theft does not work. Even your great Tsar Peter the Great, who did admittedly make much progress in modernizing Russia, did it by touring Europe incognito and borrowing all kinds of ideas, such as the Dutch and English ships. They even have a stature in Moscow commemorating his theft of naval designs.

You remind me so much of a small child huddling in a corner crying "We did it first".

So Russia didn`t devolope shutle program by choice then.

German rocket scientists had nothing to do with Soviet space program, it was entirely Russian. USA had Verner von Braun personally and it didn`t help USA, Russians were the first. This is the fact, deal with it.

First commercial nuclear reactor, the first nucear plant was built in USSR, the city of Obninsk. This is another fact you must deal with. Space station was created on Russian technologies mostly. Russian cosmonafts spent months in space, while the longest American visit to space was several days, untill ISS was built.

Yea, we did many things first.
Even though it had never been a fair competition.
USA ended the war being 8 times richer than before the war. Russia ended the war being ruined. If it would be the other way around, I think USA would be country like Mexico or Brazil, no way a superpower. Well, let`s see what will be. All we see now is that USA is getting weaker and poorer while other countries are getting stronger. And this time no one is going to start a world war to save American economy.

If you call it choice to scrap a program because you cannot afford to rebuild after the first was destroyed on the ground. Nice job of whitewashing the decision to scrap it though.

BS the ISS was built as a joint effort. Many of the lrager items could never have been delivered without the shuttle (you conveniently forgot that)

You conveniently forgot the moon landings-- or maybe you will sour grapes about it not being someting worth doing. YOu are so childish.

That you didn't use German technicians and ideas is plain and simply a lie. But then that is your way-- lie, conceal, deny.

You are so braninwashed that you are totally ludicrous-- pardon the rest of us while we laugh at your stupidity. HAHAHAHA

BTW-- you "forgot" to comment on Peter the Great. He DID do a great job of dragging Russia, kicking and screaming, out of the dark ages. BUT he did it with borrowed ( aka stolen) ideas and technologies. For quite awhile the court language of Russia was borrowed from France (not to mention that Katherine the Great was "borrowed" from Germany)

You are coviently forgetting in what condition Russia was in 90s. It had a lot of problems other than devolope Buran project. The only problem with that was lack of money.

USSR had created 2 orbit stations without any shuttles or American aid. How is it Russia could not create ISS without shuttles? Rubbish. The only thing which Russia really needed from USA was money. The technologies are Russian. USA never had such technologies because USA NEVER created any space stations.

I don`t believe Americans really visited the Moon. It was all staged probably somewhere in Arizona or Nevada.

When Peter the Great lived, USA did not even exist. I don`t kno wthe reason why you brought him up here. I can name a lot of Russian immigrants which came to USA and tought the dumb hillbillies such as yourself haw the things should get done. USA benefitted greatly from Russian immigration after the Russian revolution and after the collapse of USA. They certainly did for USA more than dumb fools like you.
