toraque: ISO15693: Hah. And you all laughed when Romney described Russia as a threat.

Well, he IS a threat, only not to us. Just to Russians.

And with Russia's ongoing demographic crisis, he may even run out of Russians to threaten.


As a (somewhat) Russian, I am very concerned about that population crisis. Especially given the 1+ billion Chinese who coincidentally live just South of the least-populous region in the world. There will be a takeover, though it will be done with goods and currency rather than tanks. Look on Google maps at cities on the Siberian border with China; like Manzhouli... In the past ten years these have grown from villages into cities. On the Russian side? Still villages. Particularly arresting are the images of newly-built four-lane Chinese expressways dead-ending at at the border; that is most suspicious work.

Kanemano: Gyrfalcon: lajimi: Just like the "Patriot" Act.

I think under the Patriot Act it's still okay to talk to foreigners. Even Mexicans.

"Citizens recruited by international organizations acting against the country's interests will also be considered traitors", the official gazette, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, said in a commentary on its website.

Just like US Citizens working for the FSS, MSS, Mosad, MI6, DIS, NHL, DHL and FTD,


I'm not too sure about the last 3

crawlspace: President Obama: "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

President Medvedev: "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you."

/true story


This, however, I see nothing wrong with. It's standard politics.

FTA: The maximum sentence for high treason remains 20 years.


Pffft...amateurs. I can get that here in America for a quarter-ounce of mushrooms.

Straelbora: Spartacus Outlaw: Why do Americans insist on pronouncing "u" as "oo"? Surely Vlad doesn't pronounce his last name "Pootin".

How do you think it's pronounced? "Pyootin?" The core of his last name is путь, transliterated as " put' ," meaning "path" in Russian. The last name Путин is pronounce "Poot (with a softening of the 'T")-een."


Thank you. I decided it was too much trouble to do the research you thankfully did. My Russian classes are decades behind me, but from what I remember, "Poo-teen" is probably correct.

Thats pretty much how the US views things as well.

Good thing you don't need to talk to foreigners for things like, say, international commerce.

So Putin has many foreign contacts. Maybe the opposition could use that to accuse him of treason.

Well, anyone working for FTD should be shot on sight regardless of where they live.

Well, at least Obama can now make deals with him, since he doesn't have to worry about another election.

His...what the fark? Seriously, what gets into you, George?

"The reason why I said that is because I remembered him talking movingly about his mother and the cross that she gave him that she had blessed in Jerusalem."

Please never, ever use the word "reason" again. It deserves better.
