The death of former Russian spy, Alexander Litvinenko, last week from radioactive Polonium-210 poisoning is the latest in a series of politically motivated attacks on the outspoken opponents of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
I’ve heard a similar phrase, that the Russians are masters at chess, while the Americans are still learning to play Monopoly.
I’m thinking it’s the Simpsons or American Idol version of Monopoly, in reality.
