There is a frightening story from the UK about a former KGB/FSB official who has apparently died from a lethal dose of radiation. A substance being called Plutonium-210 was found in his body. The man was an outspoken critic of the Russian government, and of Vladimir Putin, specifically. He claimed on his death bed to have been poisoned.
Russia has never shaken off the old Soviet KGB, demonstrated by Putin's presidency. Russia has conspired with France for valuable Iraqi oil contracts during the post-Desert Storm embargo. Russia has sold arms or given money to Iraq and Iran, and has held sway over the UN, against the interests of the United States and the rest of the free world.
Will we pull Russia's butt out of the fire when China attacks them, or will we stand back and watch, continuing to aid China in our ignorance through an insatiable desire for the latest cheap consumer goods?
