Can someone please tell me when it was decided by Russia to design and send over this beautiful monument. I would really like the know the whole story, from the first thought up to the delivery here in the states.
I would also like to know why this monument was placed in such an obscure spot. Not only is the monument in a not very high profile place, but not even our own media reported on this. How many people who don't know about this monument will just happen across it? I am an American, an All American (82nd ABN) in fact, and this is one of those times where I am really upset how America handled this.

That's not a bad idea actually. I still wonder how this could have been so secret.

well I'm not too surprised at our (American) media. Personally, I think the lack of coverage would be shameful, if true. I always wondered why the (broadcast) media has to play background music for those "touching" stories. I always wondered why the media uses the terms "drama", and "dramatic" to describe real life situations when drama is more a term of theater. I googled the definition:
http://www.google.com/search?q=defin...ient=firefox-a
not a mention of real life events among the definitions I checked. Well, that's my anti-media rant.

LOL!!! Tvrdi you crack me up. "what a cinical world....i can puke" :LOL" That says it all doesn't it? Politics the world over breeds cynics, my good man. In the USA people are daily showing their disgust for the politicians who fake indignation about executive bonuses while companies lay off thousands, and banks need the lowly tax payer to bail them out. A story ran today that listed the names of blood-sucking politicians who screamed contempt at the banks, but took money from them all the while. I'd like to see those politicians give that money back. Yes, they are hypocrites. The worst sort. Democrat and Republican politicians. All scum as far as I'm concerned. And yes a lot of people believe the drivel these politicians spew, even while they are being bled dry. Always eager to believe the next promise given at re-election time. Bah!
I say let's unite the people of the world to puke on all politicians. Maybe even have an Earth_Puke day celebration where we pull our leaders into the streets and let them run the gauntlets of puking citizens. Maybe even have a projectile hurling contest to see who can puke on a politician from the farthest away. Would the winner use indirect fire? Maybe an arcing hurl?
btw don't think people don't care about the smaller countries. We do, but mostly people are just looking after themselves where ever they are. Politicians are the ones who don't give a darn. That makes them perfect targets for burning-hot streams of puke. Don't you think?

Thanks Nike..


This was int he newsd.. it was just so... low key.. anyway I think it is such a beautiful monument... IMO it should have been publicized more... it probably wasn't because we still have yet to get ours up but to not even give this much shrift... smacks of all that was wrong in the previous administration. (Not that I said.. all that was wrong in the administration... NOT all in the administration was wrong..)
