Typical Mail chauvinist piggery!

In any case, Europa will be fully united after the Kremlin has annexed it : )

Which could be fairly soon given the current level of Russian imperialistic behaviour!

Tut tut! Such benighted confusion. This all about liberation, from the Piggies.

We're prepared to bury as many Russian boys as they care to send over the border.

The Nazis tried that too. Yet our glorious crimson flag flew freely over the Reichstag...

Bad analogy. The Nazis invaded the USSR and got what they deserved. In this case, it will be Russia playing the part of invader and it will get what it deserves also. It isn't 1944 anymore.

'44? Not sure what reference is being made there, but in any case, where ever the Russian boys go, true liberty follows!

Invaders? Like the Anglo-Saxons in the Middle East today?

What does that have to do with Eastern Europe? Russia has been a historical invader and occupier of Estonia. 1944 was when the last occupation took place. Now that we have modern equipment, training and allies, any further invasions will be exceptionally painful.

Pain is the lot of the Russian soldier. Even their boots are designed to give maximum discomfort. Throw all you have at them. Just don't expect your Piggie allies to actually do anything to help if it involves them losing life. It wouldn't be like the Iraqi cakewalk.

What occupation is this, though? Are you referring to the liberation from the Fascists?

They would have been liberators had they gone home afterward. They didn't for 47 years and during that time deported a heck load of people to Siberia (a crime against humanity and some argue even genocide based on the number of deaths) and stripped the country of its natural resources while simultaneously polluting the heck out of it. Then there was colonization and Russification. And Russians wonder why they are hated so much by most Eastern Europeans.

Only social undesirables and collaborators were deported.

And as for this going home business, look what happened when they did - NATO expands eastwards as soon as you can say 'fascist piggie', and occupies them for real. Tsk tsk...

Even children? If you believe that, then maybe the Germans did the world a favor by making sure there are less Russians today than there would have been otherwise.

NATO expansion is the direct result of the USSR/Russia's behavior. No one in this part of the world is shedding any tears over Moscow's paranoid fears. Finland already has one foot inside the NATO door. Who knows, maybe Putin will even push Sweden our way.

NATO occupation? LOL. Nice, try.
