Russia Must Be Handing Out Weapons to Anyone and Everyone

February 13, 2012

I just caught this image (below) of Russia’s Sasha Gradiva from last night’s 2012 Grammy awards.

It seems in poor taste for a Russian pop star to be wearing a weapon to the award show for the sake of generating some media attention. This is particularly true at this point in time when Russia is selling weapons that are killing people in Syria and Sudan.

Only slightly more seriously — since we’re on the subject –why is the United States continuing to do business with Russian state-owned arms company,  Rosoboronexport, which sold 36 jets to the Syrian regime? It’s past time for targeted sanctions.
