    Re: Afghan Elections on Saturday

    You should also look into Tsarist support for Afghanistan. Our economic/military support went on way before Lenin came to power. Whose guns do you think they were shooting at the British?

    Re: McDonald's Under Pressure in Russia

    I think its more of a citizen's angry response than a government induced one. Think of freedom fries back in the day. Started as butt-hurt among the people AND then kinda egged on by the government.
