Cut the crap man...everyone knows about movies like The Interview, Team America, etc...
So no one with a working brain takes what you try to pull seriously.

You spend 90% of the time talking about others members, almost never adding information to threads. If only there was an ignore button. At least some of the other pro Russian posters provide links to information along with the bias.

Another reason I have chosen to highlight this cartoon is because members who get their news from a variety of sources, but who do not speak Russian, are often mystified by posts coming from members who rely on news and other media prepared exclusively for Russian consumption. The Russian media is like a parallel universe, where it is assumed that the United States and/or NATO must be responsible for everything that happens in the world. After all, no citizen of any country is ever discontented to protest against their government unless they are paid to do so, right? This cartoon illustrates the relentlessness of the Russian media's multi-layered programming. It reminds Russians of their glorious military past while demeaning those countries that were able to leave Russia's sphere of influence. It is suffused with revanchism scarcely sweetened by it supposed humor. It is intended as propaganda, not satire.
Having said that, I still believe this was more feeding Russian citizens the greatness of their country than satire.

Man, you should have just ignored this thread. Now it's going to get unnecessary attention, again.
It's one thing to believe that Putin controls all the media and the newspapers, but to think that he's controlling all the stuff that's being put on the youtube, is just beyond ridiculous. But hey, as i have said many times before, these guys when it comes to Putin would believe in absolutely anything.
