BTW, I'm not asking.
The count of 'coalision' casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan is regularly updated and published.
Maybe STA should take issue with whoever releases that information!

STA think that dying needlessly is a sign of patriotism.
I have always maintained that it's just f*cking stupid!!

the story was posted back in March of 07, since then, plenty of Russian policemen were trained, some say, these Russkies are even better than any US cowboy, in TX.

:) I was waiting for you to say that so I didn't have to. I guess that means websites like the Washington Post, wikipedia, and even the US Defense Dept are anti-American, huh?

just in,

every 5th russian is watching too many US action movies, reported last week.
When polled, most prefer Rambos movies.
When asked, why, Rambo represents the true down to earth americans.

I didn't come on here to do that. I came on here to learn about Russia and the Russian people but I get caught up with all this other garbage and STA giving them the wrong impression of Americans. As soon as I start to think this is a waste of time, someone posts something interesting. If I hang out long enough, maybe I'll find the answers I'm looking for?

On topic - is it one in five Russians or is it "every 25th"?

From the article: ""So, has the adult population been subjected to torture within one year? The results -- in St. Petersburg: 3.4 percent, in the Pskov region: 4.7 percent, in Nizhny Novgorod: 3.4 percent, in Komi: 4.6 percent, in Chita: 4.5 percent," Gilinsky said. "The average result for all the regions is that 4.1 percent of people have personally been subjected to torture, or illegal physical or psychological violence."

4.1% is roughly one out of 25, not one out of five!(or am I reading this wrong?)
