    They're redefining "treason" to now include "dissent". Glorious.

    Remember another article I posted a few days ago in the Greece On Fire Yet Again thread...the one about stripping jury trials from anybody accused of "treason"? More glorious.

    Russia/Putin/Medvedev see the storm clouds forming, and I think they're taking the "hardline" stance in an attempt to save themselves.

    Russia has always been susceptible to strong men and totalitarianism. Just slipping back to what they have always been. The brief time of democracy is over.

    Those of us who are old enough to remember the old Russia understand what we are currently seeing.

    Some say that the old distrust holds us back from moving on.

    I'm of the opinion that you never turn you back on a rabid dog.

    I swear everytime I see that pic of Putin I can hear "O Fortuna" in my head (theme from the Omen...was also used in Conan the Barbarian II)
