Posted nearly two years ago, I would urge anyone who stops by this blog to read this short, succinct, and prescient letter to the citizens of the US, especially in light of US reactions to Mr Putin’s recent speech to the Russian Federal Assembly. Still not convinced? Orlov’s got a more recent post that deals with reality based consequences of Russia’s new defence stance.
I would also suggest visiting The Saker’s blog which has a number of posts concerning the speech that provide commentary and context sorely needed in these days of headline-grabbing hyperbole.
On another note, Orlov’s use of the Chekhov quote about the “gun on the wall” reminded me of The Polemicist’s article on gun rights from a Left point of view, which I highly recommend.
