I Feel Violent

when I read things like this.  I really do.  It is times like this that I wish I had some kind of skill to make myself feel better (like kick-boxing, judo, or throwing knives).

Let me be perfectly clear.  I admire the fact that Boris Nemtsov is speaking out.  But his only solution to the current problem is a fantasy.  It is not going to happen.  And I cannot believe that Nemtsov is stupid enough to believe that it will.  So why bother?  What is Nemtsov's goal?  Nemtsov's goal seems to be "brownie points" from the West.  To which I reply, "Brownie points do not get you anything but a cute patch; you cannot even resell the patch later for cash."
