Adopting the ways of the Shining City


February 26, 2006 by AK

According to RIA Novosti,

The lower house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, passed a counter-terrorism bill in the final third reading Sunday.

The bill […] empowers Russian secret services to tap telephone conversations and control electronic communications in areas where counter-terrorism operations are carried out.

In other words, to keep doing legally what they’ve been doing anyway. Putin and his puppet parliament are in their native element when they pass “security” laws but it’s also obvious whose lead they are following.

    These two gentlemen do have established, if I am right, quite an admiration to each other. Even more amazing to me is how much the Bush-administration looks like the theocracies of the Arabia.

    Sorry, last sentence should read “or the Bush administration”
