Since my Grandmother is from Finland and we lost 8 family members fighting the Russians in the winter of 40, I keep track.
Sad statement:
I think we need to pay heed to the last sentence.

Sad stuff right there. The Finns of old had to be the toughest, most freedom-loving folks around. While we were busy stroking Uncle Joe, they were kicking ass.

Check out "Fire and Ice", a documentary about the Finnish defense of their homeland - this crap here makes me think those guys are rolling in the grave now.

Back in college I wrote a thirty page paper on the Winter War. I was always impressed on how the small country of Finland could kick the crap out of the Rooskies.

It's sad to see whats happening there now.

Related to the article, when will Japan be forced to take those immigrants by the zillions?

Finland...It's just fine if you don't take any refugees in. No shame in it at all. You don't have to slit your own wrists by admitting mooselimbs into your country. They bring absolutely nothing of any value to your society.

I got some connections to the Finns. Nice folks, don't say much, but they will shoot you in your face if you invade their territory. Good shots, the Finns.
I intend to enjoy all 120 years of my life. I just need to get that done before I'm 65.
