    Putin isn’t thinking of the Hammer and Sickle, but of this:

    True. We spent 50 years saying that we wanted China and Russia to abandon socialism and adopt capitalism. Now they’ve done, and we don’t like it at all.

    These cartoonists are a little too hung up on the shirtless Vlad.

    @Michael wme

    Morin, Auth, and a few others, on the left and on the right, all still hung up on the hammer & sickle, over 20 years after the fact…


    All I can say is: that anti-communist propaganda during the Cold War really worked wonders! :-)

    What makes me very sad is that there is no dissenting voice in the Duma or on the streets. I thought after Gorbachev, Jeltsin and that attack on their government building the people would have gotten a taste for democracy and freedom. But I was wrong, they are still the same close minded, indifferent, beaten down masses, kept at bay by violence and alcohol.

    One can be in two minds about the invasion of Crimea, it being a special case because of the history of that peninsula, but if Russian troops move into Ukraine proper every soldier and general becomes a war criminal, punishable the same way the leaders of Nazi Germany were punished in Nuremberg!

    So all those Tea Party crazies who’ve been drooling over the manly Putin are socialists? That explains everything.

    “if Russian troops move into Ukraine proper every soldier and general becomes a war criminal, punishable the same way the leaders of Nazi Germany were punished in Nuremberg!”

    And the same way the leaders of the Bush Administration were punished after the invasion of Iraq!

    What should the artists be using, if not the hammer and sickle?
    Maybe the red star (which I note is still on our Calif. flag) but
    China uses that.
    What else?

    @martens…: “There is nothing of either communism or socialism in Russia today.”

    There wasn’t in Stalin’s time either. They were deliberately false labels to turn attention away from a system of imperialism and serfdom the extent of which the Tsar never dreamed. The hammer and sickle were deliberately chosen symbols of that deceit, And it’s those days Putin seems to be trying to recapture.

    He doesn’t seem to care about imperial robes as long as he has imperial power, nor does he seem to have any desire to have his biological children succeed him. The cartoonists have it right. The Stalinist symbols are far more representative of his actions and apparent aims than anything Czarist would be.

    It was reported that the Crimea was given to The Ukraine by Khrushchev when it was part of the USSR. (yes I still have the habit of using “The”)
    I see that the “Tea Party” was mentioned yet again.
