Russia’s Dependent Independence

Few holidays are as ridiculous as Russia’s Independence Day. One of the world’s oldest surviving colonial empires has nothing to be independent of. Everybody around Russia had been trying to liberate themselves from the oppressor, yet Russians decided it would be cool to have their own Independence Day.

Yesterday, Russia celebrated by sending tanks and armored vehicles into Ukraine to kill people. Probably, Putin didn’t get the memo where Ukrainians agree to give Russia its independence. Or, which is more likely, Russia’s idea of independence is very dependent on victimizing everybody in sight.

Raise your hand if you are surprised that Putin started a new round of invasions after Obama and Merkel groveled before him last week.
