In 988, Russia adopted Orthodox Christianity. In 1242, St Aleksandr Nevsky kicked the shit out of the Teutonic Knights. In 1380, St Dmitri Donskoi skunked the Horde on the Kulikovo Polye. In 1613, Minin and Pozharsky ran the Poles out of Moscow. In 1709, Tsar Pyotr Veliki whipped the Swedes at Poltava. Where was the indispensable USA? Yes, where was it? Answer that, and you know that Paul Wolfowitz (and all “conservatives”) suck wind. Russia has been around for a long time… the USA hasn’t been around as long. When it lasts as long as Russia has, then, they can talk. Now… they’re just bratty arrogant toddlers armed with nuclear weapons. That thought scares me… it should scare you, too. May God have His mercy on us all.
