Because the KGB has always been known for instilling altruism in its employees.

Question authority. How do you know, that you know, what you know?

Russia says in went into Crimea and into Ukraine to "protect" Russian people living there. Russia has now also gone into Syria, to "protect" Assad. Those old KGB guys are such great fellows. Salt of the Earth, they are. And just like salt on the Earth, nothing grows where they are.

Russia has now gone into Syria, to protect Syria against the CIA trained terrorists, ISIS and Al kaida.
Why the U.S. Is Stuck With Saudi Arabia for example, the wonderful democraty in the world??!!!
The eagerness of the us regime to topple Assad has nothing to do with democracy or human rights. It just because Assad doesnt say always "yes" to the us regime that always supports the Israeli crimes in Palestine.
So don't ever, ever believe that the us regime would care about something like democracy or human rights.
Thank you Russia so very much. We need you to prevent the dracula regime from committing more crimes. We know that the us regime commits and supports crimes in Palestine and talk about peace and human rights at the same time, trying to decieve everyone.
Note the hypocrisy of Clinton criticizing the Russian veto, when the US history of vetos in support of Israeli crimes is by far the greater travesty.

Year Resolution Vetoed by the United States
1973 Affirms the rights of the Palestinians and calls on Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories.
1976 Calls for self determination for the Palestinians.
1978 Calls for developed countries to increase the quantity and quality of development assistance to underdeveloped countries.
1979 Calls for an end to all military and nuclear collaboration with the apartheid South Africa.
1980 Condemns Israeli policy regarding the living conditions of the Palestinian people.
1982 Condemns apartheid and calls for the cessation of economic aid to South Africa. 4 resolutions.
1986 Imposes economic and military sanctions against South Africa.
1987 Calls on Israel to abide by the Geneva Conventions in its treatment of the Palestinians.
1997 Calls on Israel to cease building settlements in East Jerusalem and other occupied territories.

Are North Koreans fighting in Syria?
It’s not as far-fetched as it sounds.

***********

Reports that Pyongyang has sent pilots to Syria suggest the Damascus regime can no longer rely on its own airmen;
ties precede current Syrian war, forms part of North Korea's broader network of relationship in Mideast.

As a foreigner, I realize that I should be very careful about commenting on the actual conditions in another country.

Therefore, I will just say that the American media report that there seems to be a growing consensus among some younger Russian people that it would be nice if (a) President Putin declined to run for another term and (b) if the presidential elections could be scrupulously honest this time.

A good president is not one who does what seems nice to school children. People will vote for Putin because he has made Russia great again, if you let me use Trump's slogan.

The problem with the "Great Again" slogan is that

the sloganeers are driven past the point where they

should have stopped. See the fate of past empires.

Putin doesn't have a problem with this slogan. I don't remember him ever saying it. He is a doer, not a sloganeer.

You live in Russia.

I do not.

So I shan't gainsay you.

Some foreigners think that it is their place to lecture me on how I should deal with certain situations here in my country.

They shouldn't. They do not know what they are talking about.

So I shan't lecture you on how the Russian people should deal with certain situations in their country.

Your country is considered to be the leader of the "free world", or even the entire world by some. It's normal for people to criticize their leaders. As soon as the US quits this position, there will be no reason for other countries to pay so much attention to how things are done in it.

Besides, the US itself is always criticizing other countries. You, as its citizen, is also partly responsible for this, especially if you believe it to be a democracy.

Thanks for your note.

Actually, I was NOT referring to criticism of our leaders by foreigners.

I was referring to foreigners who tell me how I should conduct my personal life.

I have a responsibility to myself to do what I think is the wisest course.

No foreigner should be telling me what I should do or not do.

They do not know the nuances of living in the United States.


So it is not my business to tell Russians how they should live their lives in their country. They know things that no foreigner can ever understand.



Have a nice day!

Then kindly also stop telling people they should "know their place".

There seems to be traditional muckraking in the US,
now going on ceaselessly.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muckraker

"In contemporary American use, the term describes either a journalist who writes in the adversarial or alternative tradition, or a non-journalist whose purpose in publication is to advocate reform and change.[3] Investigative journalists view the muckrakers as early influences and a continuation of watchdog journalism. In British English the term muckraker is more likely to mean a journalist (often on a tabloid newspaper) who specialises in scandal and malicious gossip about celebrities or well-known personalities and is generally used in a derogatory sense."

********************


In some countries, if you are muckraking ardently
you will be taken to somewhere like dungeon and
you will end up like this activist.
