.<quoted text>I don't recall anything about Gorbachev destroying the economy. I remember perestroika but weren't there already severe problems with the economy/society at the time? And that was his strategy to strengthen it . We can argue about this forever but I wasn't there and I only know the American version of events.
I do agree with that last part. I would be horrified if a lot of American politicians had a foreign passports and it would make me deeply suspicious of them. I don't blame you - it is strange that they're government officials and I wouldn't trust them either. I don't like dual citizenship at all, not even for private citizens.
American version of events, is as twisted and phoney as you are.
