Quote of the Day
The way I understand it, the Russians are sort of a combination of evil and incompetence... sort of like the Post Office with tanks.
The Russians love Brooke Shields because her eyebrows remind them of Leonid Brezhnev.
We are evolving as one species - not only as Americans, Syrians, Russians, Chinese, and jihadists. We cannot attack one without inflicting forms of violence and destruction upon ourselves. This is our new reality.
All we know is that, at times, fighting the Russians, we had to remove the piles of enemy bodies from before our trenches, so as to get a clear field of fire against new waves of assault.
Paul von Hindenburg
Russians not only vehemently despise blacks, they believe Africa begins at the Ukraine border.
P. J. O'Rourke
The Russians feared Ike. They didn't fear me.
Lyndon B. Johnson
During the Cold War, America undertook serious military cuts only once: after the election of Richard Nixon, during the Vietnam War. The result: Vietnam fell to the Communists, the Russians moved into Afghanistan, and American influence around the globe waned dramatically.
There has been growing quite a strain of irritating feeling between our government and the Russians and it seems to me that it is a time for me to use all the restraint I can on these other people who have been apparently getting a little more irritated.
Henry L. Stimson
If Russians knew how to read, they would write me off.
Catherine the Great
Russians aren't perfect. Their politics are messed up, and they keep going through self-defeating economic cycles. But I have a lot of respect for Russia, and a lot of love for Russians.
We didn't push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would.
From 1945 to 1991, China was engaged in a series of wars that nearly broke them. This generation has been through hell: the Great Leap Forward, hunger, starvation, near collision with the Russians - the Cultural Revolution gone mad. I have no doubt that this generation wants a peaceful rise.
Lee Kuan Yew
I first came to Russia because of the culture, literature and music... and my interest in the 19th-century revolutionary spirit of Herzen, Bakunin and Kropotkin. Russia is a wonderful place to bring new clowns because Russians give back a wonderful response.
We have an idea that we Americans are God's chosen people, that God loves us more than any other people, and that we are God's blessed. I tell you that God doesn't love us any more than He does the Russians.
No, the people standing before Christ and Pilate during the judgment scene do not condemn an entire race for the death of Christ anymore than the actions of Mussolini condemn all Italians, or the heinous crimes of Stalin condemn all Russians.
Another adverse factor was the way the Russians received continual reinforcements from their back areas, as they fell back. It seemed to us that as soon as one force was wiped out, the path was blocked by the arrival of a fresh force.
Gerd von Rundstedt
'Evil men have no songs.' How is it that the Russians have songs?
Foe means enemy. Now, will we have differences of opinion with the Russians? Yes. Will they get mad at us from time to time, and we get mad at them? That's part of the normal diplomatic relations.
The Russians and the Chinese have been absolutely clear they don't want to see Iran with a nuclear weapon.
The best thing we can do if we want the Russians to let us be Americans is to let the Russians be Russian.
George F. Kennan
The Russians imitate French ways, but always at a distance of fifty years.
The warning message we sent the Russians was a calculated ambiguity that would be clearly understood.
Russians can give you arms but only the United States can give you a solution.
There is no such thing as Russian fascism. You won't find a single Russian who considers Russians to be a superior race and who advocate expulsion of aliens.
Television is something the Russians invented to destroy American education.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
