Now a Russian leader has come along to call out the hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy of the West in waging its "War on Terrorism". A 'war' in which some terrorists are considered friends while others are enemies. In his column last Sunday ("Mail...

    Galina Timchenko recalls how proud she felt when the Russian news website she edited reached 3 million users per day. When she reported the figures to the websites owner, he was horrified. At that moment something snapped inside and I understood that this is the end, because there cannot be such an influential resource that is not controlled by the Kremlin, Timchenko said. A month later, she was fired and a more Kremlin-friendly editor was brought in to run the website, The shakeup at last year came as the government was pushing through a slew of new laws...

    As the weeks go by it is becoming increasingly apparent that a profound disconnect exists amid a very large portion of the current year electorate regarding the goals and objectives of the apparatus we call the GOPe.
