A museum dedicated to the victims of U.S. and NATO military aggression has opened in the North Caucasus city of Vladikavkaz.
The exhibition, which is housed at the National Scientific Library of North Ossetia, opened Thursday to visitors over the age of 16, and displays artifacts "attesting" to "the state terrorism" of Western nations, organizer Vyacheslav Lagkuyev said, Interfax reported.
Among the themes of the exhibition are the conflicts in Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan each of which has its own display in the museum. The U.S. war in Vietnam and the NATO bombing of Serbia are also detailed in the exposition.

If America was such a hegemonist, why are Japan
and Germany, not to mention a slew of other countries
around the world NOT part of America TODAY?
The Tzar is back
It all started when some folks tried to take advantage of Serbia. The Russians view Serbs (and Montenegrins) as their little Slavic Bros, who must be protected from the rapacious Western Powers, whosoever they might be at any given moment.
Betcha all this Russki truculence got a boost when Bush the Wimp, then BJ Clinton, and then Bush the Inarticulate decided that poor little Serbia was the bad guy in that unpleasant encounter with the unlovely Kosovar Albanians and the sly Muslim Bosnians. (As if anyone in his right mind can pick out the good guys in any Balkan Brouhaha.)
Never mind Putin. If the Czar were still around, he would be doing the same thing! BTW, he used to personally own The Crimea, the Poles once owned the Eastern Ukraine, and the Russian Empire owned them both!
Now The Mombasa MF*, who cuts no ice or gets any respect anywhere outside of the housing projects where he pulls 102% of the vote, and Botox Kerry are going to choose the good guys in a fight between the re-rampant KGB and the neo-NAZI Ukrainian Nationalists?
*Out of window look please. Pig is flying by? Is day when Russki respect gay Muslim ubarred lawyer raised by transvestite queer nanny in Indonesia.
Sounds like an old Smithsonian Institution annex. Back in the early 80’s, several communists worked high up in the SI and Put Angela Davis’s photo on the cover of their honoring black women publication.
Another high upper was a member of the Maoist “Frontline”/Transactions” organizations/publications, as well as teaching at the Communist-cofounded and co-funded “Institute for Policy Studies” in the late 80’s, earl 90’s.
Don’t forget the Politcally Correct fiasco against the display information on the B-29 Enola Gay of Hiroshima fame.
The first real head of the SI’s Museum of African-American History was a hardcore marxist named Johnnetta Cole (Venceremos Brigade, USPC, J4C, Marxist Perspectives journal, and friend of Hillary Clinton/on her husband’s election transition team).
The reds never sleep, like termites, always infiltrating our cultural/societal institutions in order to destroy or misguide them from with.
I sure looks like SOMEONE is Russia is trying to revive the Cold War.
No sane leader would be this dismissive. Obama's no great shakes as a president, but he does have the weight of the entire US economy behind him, in addition to a military budget that's larger than the next ten countries combined. Putin was bluffing, because when it comes down to it, he has no cards to play. If McCain were in charge, he would have put conventional forces in Crimea, and the Russians would simply have slunk back into Russia. Because ultimately, no rational country is going to start a nuclear war over a failed invasion. Invasions are carried out to get territorial gains in exchange for very little cost. Nuclear wars against an opponent capable of retaliation not only don't result in any gains, they result in catastrophic losses, probably including everyone known to or related to the the leadership.
Best comment on the whole Ukraine/Russia situation for all time.
We restarted the Cold War after we bombed Serbia.
You support the idea that we should have landed troops in Crimea? What national interest did we have there? You do understand that national interest doesn’t mean, “hey, that looks interesting. Right?
Extra credit for telling us the Year when Catherine the great established Russian Navy bases in Sevastopol.
Extra credit for explaining why Americans should be willing for fight and die for Crimea, when Ukraine was unwilling to.
As of 1938, ethnic Germans had inhabited the Sudetenland for close to 7 centuries. By historical standards, Russians are arrivistes in the Crimea. Chamberlain was leery of challenging German dominance in a land (Czechoslovakia) that wouldn't defend itself. The result was WWII and 40m dead Europeans, along with 400K GI dead.
I don't support putting troops in the Crimea for the same reason that I don't support the existing system of alliances. I think we ought to pull out of existing alliances and slash defense spending to the bone to avoid the temptation to get involved in situations like this. Our muscle-bound defense establishment has put us in a situation where if we don't waste money on other people's problems, we look irresponsible, because we could have helped them, whereas all the weaklings by choice in the EU can say that they simply don't have to resources available. In the long run, we need to hold their feet to the fire, and let situations like Ukraine run their course - perhaps including giving Putin free rein to annex all of the ex-Warsaw Pact nations - so that the EU will finally start arming up in its own defense.
Having said that, if Obama (or McCain) had put troops in the Ukraine, Putin would have blinked. He doesn't have any cards to play. He doesn't have the hardware or manpower, and he doesn't have an economy that can go head-to-head with the US.
Wonder if they’ll have a KGB museum; they could have a special part dedicated to Putin and his dad. His father was also a secret policeman, but he didn’t spin that into a career that made him President for Life and a position that allowed him to become one of the richest men in the world.
Disagree. This is an opening Russian bid to eventuallyreplace as much American influence in Europe as they can. There is a perceived weakness in the leadership of the US. There is a rapidly changing demographic both here and in Europe. Putin has a weak hand, but (a) it's no weaker than ours, and (b) he can play it a lot better.
As far as military efforts might go, major elements of Obama's base would not ... IMNVHO, countenance it. They and Obama are anti-military.
Putin may well be nuts, but he ain't stupid. I have worked overseas for many long periods of time and although this is strictly anecdotal, I'll report that when we have had a President like Carter, or Clinton, Americans were not taken quite as seriously as when Bush (both) were President. Now this idiotic teleprompter jockey simply causes intelligent foreigners to roll their eyes and ask, "WTF are you people thinking?"
