Re:"the ever-sensible Philip Stephens, of the Financial Times, reminds us of Moscow's vulnerabilities", Russia's problem's are nothing compared to U.S's. The feds are bankrupt with tons of debt in the hands of their enemies, no troops to fight the wars they've already started, a collapsing economy, the prospect of ten dollar a gallon gas once Iran is attacked and the Suez is full of sunken US. ships. Venezuela will cut off petroleum to U.S. and Russia, Europe's main source of lpg, will ostracise them from heat. The U.S. can do nothing to Russia short of a surprise nuke attack and hopefully Cheney's bunker is locked in.

( from Pravda)
"President Bush,
Why don’t you shut up...

do you really imagine there is a single human being anywhere on this planet who does not stick up his middle finger every time you appear on a TV screen? ...

The US is not a superpower. It is a bankrupt farce run by imbeciles who were installed by stolen elections arranged by Karl Rove and Diebold. It is a laughing stock, that ignorantly affronts and attempts to bully an enormous country equipped with tens of thousands of nuclear weapons. "

On ProRev's popularity:

It's as simple as this. If you want real news, you won't find it from any corporation. People who want to read important things they won't find elsewhere will find Undernews and come back to it. What I like about Sam Smith, may he never stop updating, is his unique combination of a willingness to bash both parties and deep knowledge of the Democratic party.

What do I read to stay informed? I read Asia Times, WSWS, Undernews, Counterpunch, The Guardian (admittedly corporate), and DU for fast breaking news. I read blogs, some obscure, some lefty, some right-wing, some extremist, but it balances out. They're much more likely to be motivated to report the facts than the advertising-driven giants, who as part of the USA's political power structure pretend to be balanced but practise a deeply unbalanced selective reporting.
