Russia runs more than 100 known spies under official cover in the U.S. Story dated 30 January 2005
"[A]lthough the cold war is long over, Russia is fielding an army of spooks in the U.S. that is at least equal in number to the one deployed by the old, much larger Soviet Union. . . Officials say the Russians are after secrets about American military technology and hardware, dual-use technology such as the latest lasers." One Russian spy, apprehended after purchasing "sophisticated computer components in the U.S. to send to Russia through Ireland stands to be charged in mid-February with "unlawful export of 'defense articles.'"" This is just great. "Russia has indicated that it may sell advanced weaponry to China [a belligerent power with imperialist designs on Taiwan and some Japanese territory], including strategic bombers that could pose a threat to U.S. aircraft carriers in the Pacific." Now they are spying on us and stealing technology. Of course, we probably spy on them too. And I am told that the United States spies on British citizens while the U.K. spies on British citizens with each power trading the information it gathers with the other. But you don't care, do you? You want to see who won American Idol, of see what's happening the Michael Jackson.

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
