    I agree, in the sense that it's a rather pious line to take from a country that's run by immoral gypsies and gangsters. But Russia still wields a lot of influence in the Middle East, not to mention being in possession of huge gas reserves. Like it or not, their opinion counts, regardless of how it coincides or reflects upon their undeniably tarnished reputation.

    Let's count the innocent bodies that were killed in war or hostile acts in near history and let's look at Russia's share within these numbers. Russia doesn't bomb anyone and makes a "we bring democracy" Hollywood drama out of it.
    With the exception of Georgia, where body-count was very very low Russia acts like a responsible actor within International System. Definitely more responsible and with more "moral"-stance then some other countries.

    You made a sarcastic comment about Russia and moral-stance.
    I wrote down my conviction, that there isn't anything wrong with Russia's moral-stance as Russia is a peaceful and responsible member of International Community, based on the body-count it has caused in recent history.

    To be fair, Ringel, Ekrem does have a point.

    Obviously he, and apparently you, have forgotten about, or ignored Russia's history through the end of the cold war not to mention their history with their own or subjected peoples.
    So again Ekrem, aren't you dizzy yet.

    I think Ukraine would disagree! Holodomor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Probably your terrorist Chechan friends would disagree!

    Stalin is said have MURDERED 20 million of his own people!

    What about Afghanistan? They invaded to bring communism to their neighbor. They killed 1 million plus there.

    Name a former Soviet State and they will account atrocities committed by mother Russia.


    Not to mention when they invaded other countries they aren't seeking to bring Democracy, they are seeking to suppress Democracy and bring socialism!

    I think the people in Chechnya would disagree you dumb fuck. Russia definently will not hesitate to use its Military for its own interests.
