    I've always wondered why Jews were so instrumental in the communist revolution which overthrew the Czars. They just ended up trading one tyranny for another.

    Hope for better does not always achieve the desired purposes.

    You don't expect the ruling class to take credit for the results of their incompetence?

    What do you think the 1% crap is all about? Just Obama trying to rip a page from Alexander's playbook.

    Transliteration of Russian can sometimes be difficult, and has never been consistant. In the 19th Century the letter Ц was usually transliterated as cz. Nowadays they transliterate it as ts.

    The letter Ж is usually transliterated at Zh. It has been the most consistant.

    In the old days the letter В was transliterated as ff when in the final position in a word, wich is closer to the way Russians actually pronounce it. These days it is always transliterated as v, even in places where it is closer to f.

    The letter Г is always given the value g by the library of congress these days, despite the fact that when used in a genitive pronoun or at the end of a genitive adjective it has the value of v.


    Just figure the Russians be crazy and be done with it.

    Whatever preference you wish Mr. H. Tzar is also on that table of multiple nouns for the identical description.

    That's your call...

    ...but it indicates the importance of the Roman Empire, in that the name is based on
    Caesar.

    As is Kaiser....

    ...and some say Shah, as well.
