This has been around for awhile. But, I want to thank JB for sending it to me.
It illustrates a point that needs to be made. If you think Russia is no longer a threat, you may want to reconsider that thought.
Vladimir Putin spent 17 years with the Soviet KGB. He didn’t get to where he is today by helping little old ladies across the street. On Putin’s watch, during his KGB days and after, a LOT of people are spending their time in Siberia (if they’re lucky) or have come up dead or missing. Communism in Russia may be history; but the gosbezopasnost (the Kremlin’s political police) has taken over the Kremlin itself, and a gang of over 6,000 former KGB officers are now running the country. I guess you know what that means.
During a press interview with President Putin, a reporter referred to his career as an ex KGB agent, Putin laughed and said there is no such a thing as an ex KGB, “Once KGB always KGB.” (Something about that quote rings a bell with me.)
There are a WHOLE LOT of ‘Vladimir Putins’ out there. I just use him as an example because there are others that come from different races, different cultures and different countries and they all have one objective in mind -- bootheels on the neck of America.
This is life, folks, and only the strong survive. Or, only the strong survive along with the well-heeled... as long as the money holds out. The ONLY thing that I’ve known that ever insured peace was having superior fire-power.
Look at the pictures and compare the men (well, at least one of them is a man) and tell me which one is going to win in a hand-to-hand combat situation. Look at the pictures and compare them as if they were America and some other foreign power(s). The pictures become not so humorous, but scary, huh?
