Propaganda War

As the US and Russia descend into an unproductive, and ultimately, harmful tête-à-tête, sometimes its fun just to stop and saver the glory of our newly minted propaganda war.

This little gem comes from the Moscow Weekly News: "10 Reasons Why Russia Can’t Trust Uncle Sam." But there's a twist.

While the usual talkers are on display: Mutually Assured Destruction is a good thing, Bush is evil, the Pentagon has lots of money, NATO is too big, the Council on Foreign Relations is a war-mongering think tank...the author is an American living in Moscow.

The marriage of Kremlin publicity and the Cindy Sheehan crowd was certainly a matter of time. But now, the first buds of spring are sprouting.
