What does it matter now if men believe or no?
What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
To murmur in pity that my words were true
(Cassandra, in Agamemnon by Aeschylus)
To see the wizard one must look behind the curtain ....
Better here than the picture thread.... "Putin sought to burnish his image as a father of the nation who cares for the people's needs, alternating benign statements with his dry and sometimes harsh humor.
He backed his talk about the need for a strong military with a joke about a boy who swaps his father's navy dagger for a watch.
The youth is told by his father: 'It's a good watch. When bandits will come to us and kill your mother and rape your older sister, you will come out and say: 'Good evening, it's 12:30 in Moscow.''
"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." - MLK Jr
