So check him out, there he is, unvieled yesterday at the Tallinn War Cemetary is our old mate the Bronze Staue. See he was never going to be REmoved, just MOVED to a more appropiate location, amongst the dead of ALL countries, Estonians, Russians, Germans, even Brits lie in this site.
Watching Estonian news is fun, I cant understand whats happening but the pictures are pretty anyway. The Russians are going ape shit over this, the Estonian embassy in Moscow is being blockaded, by mainly young people holding signs of which my favourite is "We Will Be Back". WHAT THE HELL. "WE WILL BE BACK?" See thats the thing in all of this, the Russian government, which in turn feeds the information to the people, DOESNT ACTUALLY GET THAT OCCUPYING THE BALTICS WAS WRONG. How can they make such outrage over someone elses country?
Ok so heres the best, this is my favourite, very favourite. I saw a report about a bunch of stoney face Russian politicians who travelled to Tallinn yesterday to express their outrage and demand the Estonian prime minister (or was it the whole government) be removed… AGAIN. HELLO RUSSIA. What country sends an official envoy to another country to demand the removal of its government? How can they do this? Can you imagine if Australia sent an envoy to America, not to express some concerns over foreign policy but to say "BUSH GET THE HELL OUT". You cant, diplomacy doesnt work like that, its another independant nation.
For the Estonian people this seems more of a rallying point, a center for pride that they can be themselves and not be bullied by their old occupier. All power to them I say.
