That’s the former “Stalingrad” if I’m not mistaken.

That’s going to really piss the Russians off. Say what you will, but that city is almost considered sacred ground in the Rodina.

If Putin chooses to reduce Mecca to glass, I’ll most definitely vote for him to replace our b*ll-less piece of excrement currently drawing flies to the White House.

Ooooooooo! Those fun-loving moozlums are at it again. It is unfortunate that the moozlums aren’t a “suicide” cult, rather than a “homicide” cult. Is that a suicide vest or are you just happy to see me?

Putin will order the KG, oops the FSB to kill her entire family, and any friends they may have.

You poke the Bear with a stick, and it will bite.

Ivan doesn't f'k around with terrorists like we do.

That statue is nearly 300 feet high. The sword is 108 feet long, which is more than ten feet longer than the total height of the Atlas missiles that were used in the Mercury series of manned spaceflights.

It’s on my To Do List to go see that. As much as I despised Stalin and the Soviet Union, I have great admiration for those who fought for their homeland against a terrible enemy.

Attacking Russians in Stalingrad is never a good idea, even if it has been renamed.
