Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Yes, and North Korea is the most democratic country in the world because Kim Jong Un has 100% approval ratings.

Nobody disputes these figures. Even Western polling companies release the same numbers. It's fine that you don't like it. It's not OK that you make up blatant lies to disprove my point.

I am tired of Putin. Liar, murderer, bigoted racist, idiotic fantasist...

Charlie Chaplin knows the way forward...

If Spain invaded Portugal and said, "Oh, 800 years ago they were part of Spain, after all we spoke the same language then, so they really belong to us...". What would the world say!?

It is a fact that there were no defined states in Europe or Eurasia 800 years ago. But it is also true that St. Sophia cathedral in Kyiv was built before the city of Moscow.

As time passes, people develop their own languages and cultures become differentiated.

In 300 years through continued inter-breeding everyone will look the same, more or less, and everyone will speak some dialect of English...

Repeat a lie often enough it becomes the truth if you believe it

Fact-checking Putin's 'nonsense' history
Mr Carlson, frequently appearing bemused, listened as Mr Putin expounded at length about the origins of Russian statehood in the ninth century, Ukraine as an artificial state and Polish collaboration with Hitler.

It is familiar ground for Mr Putin, who infamously penned a 5,000-word essay entitled "On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians" in 2021, which foreshadowed the intellectual justification the Kremlin offered for its invasion of Ukraine less than a year later.

Historians say the litany of claims made by Mr Putin are nonsense - representing nothing more than a selective abuse of history to justify the ongoing war in Ukraine.

Regardless of the historical realities, none of Putin's assertions would form a legal justification for his invasion.

The heterogeneous-ness of Russia would qualify as a Soviet-Russian concept in line with the old mythology Putin continues babbling about... It's all in his mind.

So, I should say, he's a typical solipsistic narcissist: someone who thinks that he knows "who and what others are" because all he knows and sees is himself and like minds who feed his delusions, like Alexander Dugin, et al ...

Putin is kind of like Tom Cruise and John Travolta. Dugin is like the leader of the church of Scientology.

He's not racist, in fact he loves minorities so much he insists on recruiting most of his army from their impoverished regions.
