Well, my dad says that if him and his buddies just pressed on for a few more weeks, they could've captured Moscow and WON the war !

And the Putin government's propagandists like to claim that the Russian media is mostly Western-owned, and/or controlled by the "Jewish mafia". lolol

Putin is just the latest in a long line of Russian despots. And unfortunately, he may prove to be one of the longest ruling Russian despots.

Pity the poor Russian people.......

In order for Putin to break the record for longest serving Russian leader/despot he has to beat Ivan IV Vasilyavich, also known as Ivan Grozny or Ivan the Terrible.

Ivan clocked in at 50 years, 166 days.

Putin would have to live to be over 100 in order to accomplish this task.

In more modern times, I was thinking of Stalin.

(I remember a cute cover on I believe the Atlantic magazine some years ago, with a caricature of Putin on the cover. He had fangs, and blood dripping. The caption was "Vlad the Impaler". I thought it was a witty reference.:))

Don't overlook the creatures that make up the Duma. It far too easy to focus on Putin.

Remember, Stalin didn't kill all 20,000,000 of his own people all by his lonesome in his spare time. The ones who did the deeds, and allowed the deeds, are still around. So are the children they raised.

I know. I've read a lot of Russian history, and Soviet history over the years.

If you want to see two EXCELLENT movies, one a historical drama starring famous gay actor Tom Hulce, and the other a documentary, see "The Inner Circle" and "MONSTER: A Portrait Of Stalin In Blood".

You cannot separate the history of socialism from the deaths and murders of more than 100 million people in history.

The Russians have never been taught the true meaning of "sins of omission", unless it's omitting kissing a cartoon enough times, bowing enough times, or ranting Gospodi Pomilui enough times (as if that makes any difference if one omits the really important things).

Personally, I think the Germans should take East Prussia back from the Russians.
