This foreign minister must have access to a great supply of designer drugs only available to the regime. The proverbial pot calling the kettle black.

Obviously he doesn't understand the right of protest in a democratic society whether frivolous or not. It is unlikely the petition was a real call for cessation but one to hi-lite a perceived problem. A right in the US of free speech. Free speech which is an alien concept in the Belarus of Lukashenko the Terminator.

Not one of the 125,000 petition signers is in prison for promoting treason as would the same number in Belarus be if they petitioned cessation of an Oblast from the country.

If a young man from Novopolotsk can be held on charges of treason for distributing news flyers, imagine what retribution petitioners for a separate state would face.

News, you have to understand the concept of "foreign" for a minister in Belarus: besides Siria, Venezuela, Iran and North Korea, all other countries seem alien to them!

Obviously A..Hole Alan in La. did not read my comments. But first a lesson in grammar and punctuation. It is "what's" not "whats" (as in what is) and it is Canadian...not canadian. Another shining star in the US education system.

That said jerk off...I did not mention Texas in my comments. Read the article, read my comments. I supported the right of protest and petitions guaranteed in democratic nations. To do the same in Belarus is a ticket to a KGB cell and prison term.

If a group in the US gathers in silence to clap in a form of protest nothing happens. In Belarus it means jail.

Obviously your reference to "canadian turd" was meant to evoke some sort of ire in me but I look at where it came from....an inbred swamp redneck from Lousianna and I take the high ground when such comments come from a donkey loveing inbred Cajun.

I can also take the high ground when it comes to historical events. To refresh your memory (most likely not taught in your one room school houses) it is that of all the wars the US has fought, the one they lost was against Canada...we call it the War of 1812.

Now you can go back to the cricks and collect your crawdads for the inbred family fest. It is that festival day when you climb the town's water tower and spray paint to erase the name of your sister who may actually be your cousin to save her reputation. Or when you go to the square dance and the caller yells "Ho Down" and all the girls drop to the floor. Stick to the Bayou Parishes where it takes 20 women together before there is a full set of teeth.

When you know world history, world politics, current events, then you can make logical comments for discussion. Until then...shut your fk'n redneck pie hole.
