    So we are clear: I do not want to learn anything from you because I am convinced you have nothing to teach me. Trust me, after having spent the better part of too many hours reading your posts here,...

    I said I wouldn't respond. I lied.

    Out of curiosity, who do you presume you are preaching to here? :) Who exactly do you think you are educating with these Disneyland, crayon, and cartoon...

    If traffic is your metric, you are doing this for the wrong reason. I don't care that you post, or post often. It's that you mistake being an industrious Google flogger for being a serious analyst....

    "Battles." Yes, I have been reading a lot of what you post here and, politely, I think you flatter yourself. You post, often, and it's clear you are passionate about "mother Russia." Having said...

    I am curious, will everyone who has something positive to say about be Russia be drowned out as well? As another poster noted somewhere else, if they (whomever) are going to talk to you in English,...

    It really does boil down to this and if we can instill that muscle memory the time/effort saved will be worth the monotony. Great post and great tips.

    Well said, top to bottom.

    I knew I was doomed as soon as "assume" hit my screen.

    Some Grand is Grander than Grand

    I agree and am more sure of it now than I was a week ago. The F-22/35 combo may both appear to be very pricey but what they offer in terms of apparent effectiveness far outweigh their cost.

    I have recently been accused of indulging in pith, vinegar and general snarkiness of which I am wholly and completely guilty (mea culpa) so I am going to try to pitch softly here.
