Clumsy and Clunky




Saw this on the Internet news this morning.

Russians always do things in a heavy handed way. Just listen to their music. Look at their submarines. Their AK-47s. Their biological-weapons program during the Cold War. Their chess tactics.

I love the photo of this big-bellied Russian with that ridiculous oversized Russian hat and his big clunky Russian assault rifle, and the beleaguered expression on his Muslim detainee. (actually, I'll bet that Muslim dude is guilty as hell ... that's the irony here)

Russians did give us Bolshoi and Rachmaninoff. They need to handle these Muslims in the same way: with grace, dexterity, and alacrity.

But those swelling patriotic vocal pieces with the all-male choruses? OK, those are cool too.

Comments:
It's all about control. Always was, always will be. History will probably show that control was easier to maintain through Imperial coersion. It's what people are used to. Czars and Emperors were what they were called 100 years ago. Now they call them Premier or some other monniker. In the end, the same system prevailed under a different name.
 
But you gotta dig those outrageous hats.
 
Yeah, the hats and the goose-stepping and the cool Mayday parades with all the missiles. I miss them.
 
And the chess. You really can't knock Russians' chess, unless your name is Bobby ...

HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH
