    one has to wonder why VP Biden went to Lithuania to reassure them.

      and it's the diplomatic thing to do. Lithuania has almost no Russians, maybe they'll vote to secede too!

      A Russian diplomat mentioning minority rights in Estonia was presented as the drums of war. It's sensationalism ad fear mongering at it's worst.

      If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?

        so I take no credit for that. And I do sincerely hope you are correct. It will be interesting to watch the news develop and see if Russia tries to stir up unrest in Estonia or if this is truly just bloviating on the part of the Russians.

          was by the diarist. I didn't mean to claim you were fear mongering, sorry.

            I agree with you that there are major differences between Estonia and Ukraine.
