orbister: Because what sort of civilised nation would abduct people and hold them in extrajudicial detention for years without trial, representation or hope of release?[i.telegraph.co.uk image 460x288]Oh yes. That sort. But then, what sort of nation would use overseas assassination of critics and opponents?[static.ddmcdn.com image 400x318]Oh yes. It's that one again.

Marmilman: Spare Me: Ya know, Putin used to be hard core Communist. He was an officer on the Berlin wall frantically calling for support when the wall fell. He is on record over the years lamenting the fall of Soviet Union as the greatest travesty of the 20th century.
