Of course on Friday night the Russian army was drunk

When I heard the first news of the 1991 attempted coup I knew that the coup leaders were all drunk. I was proven right. This coup took place on Friday evening when the army was drunk.

The Romanian revolution took place on television.  The Russian revolution is taking place on social media: Twitter and Telegram. This thread is the best thing I've seen. widely read in Russia relays uncensored information.


  1. Putin liked to accuse Ukrainians of Nazism. Now maybe Vlad will have to deal with the real Nazis in his own backyard.

    1. Just a lot of Wagner blokes with Nazi tattoos.

    2. Blokes with Nazi tatoos exist, so do a few people who call themselves Nazis, but the National Socialist Party and its ideology existed at an historical moment and is gone, as is fascism. Why do people keep talking about fascism? And ignoring the far left (who are usually not Marxists now but stand in the nihilistic tradition of the Jacobins)?.

  3. If not for Prigozhin's comic relief, no-one would have anything to tweet about Ukraine after 3 weeks of offensive. C'mon, guys: What's the next Wunderwaffe? How are you going to win this one? Not being facetious. I don't see any moves on this board.

      The FBI lied to the American people & launched an entirely unwarranted investigation against Donald Trump to prove nonexistent collusion with Russia & prevent him from winning the 2016 presidential election.

      Every American should be outraged by this corruption & abuse of power.
