Japan has also accused Russia of fomenting confrontation over the disputed Kuriles.

Terminator V: The machines want your job.

In a fun change of pace, we’re going to have a post that’s light on excerpts and heavy on ranty linkiness. That might not actually be fun but it’s not like there’s a robot standing over your shoulder forcing you to read this. Yet.

Fascists in Russian Anti-Putin Coalition: Whither the Oil Rich and Largely Muslim Caucasus?
