Bulgaria Educates Russia
We could hardly help squealing with delight late last month when Bulgaria gave Russia a lesson by painting a Soviet war statue, shown above, so that the Soviet soldiers looked like American superheros (Wolverine, Superman and Captain America, for instance), as shown below.
The repainting came just in the time for the 70th anniversary of Germany’s attack on Russia in World War II.
Russians screamed and howled in its predictable and impotent manner, but for months before the supposedly sacred monument had been fronted by a skateboarders’ half-pipe, and Russians had said and done nothing.
Russians were 0nce again confronted by the cold fact that they have burned their bridges all across Eastern Europe, and now watch powerlessly as all these nations drift into the Western fold and embrace American values, rejecting Russia and all it stands for. Many of these nations have joined NATO and the EU.
Russians claim “victory” in World War II even though the Germans killed nearly 40 million Soviet citizens and of all men born in the Soviet Union between 1921 and 1923, only 3 percent survived. So, what Russia actually should be doing is mourning a horrific loss and failure. But as is so often the case with Russians, they do exactly the opposite of what they should be doing.
It is the height of irony that Russians complain about the West failing to give them due credit for their “victory.” Not only do Russians give the West no credit whatsoever, but they teach their children they “won” a war that resulted in total devastation and national collapse.
