It seems that the terrorists are killing more russian citizens than vice-versa..I am sure the USA and the Western actions or sucesses are not reported in russian media, either. I never see them noted.

"Hear", "Here" or "hare" or "hair"..or "bear" or "Bare"..or "to" or "two" or "Too"..

They're widely reported in Russian media. For example, from today news on RIA Novosti:

U.S. drone strikes in Afghanistan kill 16 Taliban

At least 16 Afghan insurgents were killed in two missile strikes using unmanned aerial vehicles in Afghan volatile Helmand Province, the U.S. military command in Kabul announced on Tuesday.

According to the statement, both attacks took place early Monday in the southern Helmand Province. A total of 13 militants were killed in the first attack on a house in Now Zad and another three insurgents in the second one in Nad Ali. The drones fired Hellfire antitank missiles.

The use of drones to target the militants was unusual for Afghanistan, where they are mostly employed for surveillance. The craft are more commonly used for airstrikes over the border in Pakistan's tribal areas.

Airborne attacks by foreign forces are controversial in Afghanistan, and on Tuesday in Helmand Province several people were short dead and more than a dozen injured during an anti-NATO demonstration.

Hundreds of Afghans took part protesting against the killings of civilians by NATO troops and demanding their withdrawal from the country.

On Monday the mayor of the city of Delaram, in Afghanistan's southwestern Nimruz Province, has been killed by unknown gunmen when he was returning home from his office by car.

Violence surged in the country in 2009, with the radical Islamic Taliban group staging regular attacks on provincial government officials, police and civilians and planting roadside devices as part of its fight against U.S. and NATO troops.

In early December, U.S. President Barack Obama announced plans to send an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan in the first part of 2010 to defeat the Taliban.

I have to support STA in this one. He does know the reality. I received my brainwashing early when a student in Moscow. His mind is clean. And, the media is free. I still buy my commie books from the American Communist Party..Many of their literature is free, too!! Stalin snubbed my hero, Gus Hall, and that was mean of him..But, I still love Stalin too!! I can also buy putin's books and all books published in russia here as well. Why, if I spouted out what I say about the USA and the West and said the same thing about russia, instead, putin would have me injected..

You could pepper sayings here from here to eternity and the end result would still be the same - a sow's ear.
