Do Russians Want War?

Russians don’t want war… but they’ll fight if the neoliberal “conservative” Anglo warmongers invade… the Anglos will find out what the Teutonic Knights, the Poles, Napoleon, and Hitler found out. Russians love peace… but they’ll never give in to evil aggression… America had best take note…

Update:

A Celtic Cabineteer told me:

Those look very “ren fest” to me. The kilt only came into being in the 1600’s very late 1500’s at the earliest.

There it is… but they loved the links. The garb is bit outré, but the music is spot-on!
