Before the collapse of USSR North Korea was a pretty developed country, while SK was just a huge village. United States has changed it by stripping NK from energy (dead factories, empty roads, dark apartment buldings...), while flooding SK with investments and markets for its products.

I would be miserable too, if I were God's Anointed Tsar, in a KGB mask.

When the mask comes off, then *Michael* will arise.

Russia is traditionally (and our tradition may easily extent to almost the dawn of the man) atheist/paganist - rather weird place for a messiah

Reminds me of something Vladimir Putin said years ago when he was praising democracy as the longest lasting form of government.

He said: "as democracy flourishes the jews flourish."

If only he was "God's Anointed Tsar" anywhere but in your head.

If only the Archangel Michael actually existed.

So Putin's already acting like a Tsar and blaming the Jews for his problems.

PS. Atossa, if he would have taken care of you as well on this forum, I'd become a devote Christian...

... and then he farted...

In Russia only Jews (maybe, but not certainly) care about Jews - who make up a tiiiiiiny minority. No domestic Jewish question can possibly raise to the federal level.
