Why I Have Written "U2 tour in Moscow is WRONG?"

Please, read carefully...

Who's U2's leader? Bono... "Today, Bono, the U2 singer, global activist and one of the most powerful leaders on the world stage,"

The Truth About Kremlin (Putin and Medvedev). "As he prepares to step down from the Russian presidency in early May, Vladimir Putin has been boasting about his accomplishments. In a speech to the State Council on February 8, he talked of the stability that his government had established, thanks to which “people once more have confidence that life will continue to change for the better.” A few days later, during the last of his long annual press conferences as president of the Russian Federation, Putin said: “I have worked like a galley slave throughout these eight years, morning till night, and I have given all I could to this work. I am happy with the results.” By NYREV, Inc.

"one of the most powerful leaders on the world stage"

Bono is the singer in a rock and roll band. He doesn't lead any countries and has no power over any nations. He is an effective and tireless advocate for people that many leaders and nations would otherwise ignore, and has managed to gain the attention of many world leaders. That has no impact on his band's tour itinerary, and shouldn't.

(Really hate posts like this from new "members" who come in and make one post and then never return. Likely going to delete this thread before too long.)

Traveling to Russia, dangerous?

"The slaying of prominent Russian journalist Anna Politkovskayia is the message to everybody in Russian society: - Shut down! You will be next.- Russian people is living now in fear, in absence of respect to human rights of anyone and everybody. There is no freedom: no self expression, nor press, nor business. Not anymore! In builded by Putin so called vertical of power there so such place for that words. There is no more separation of branches of government - there are simply nothing to separate. Everything tied in monstrous knot of corruption, negligence and criminal (or close to) connections. In such environment nazi and xenophobia are flourishing. So I have displeasure to present you the phenomenon - Russian fascism. Last but not least, as I'm forced to admit with sadness and anger, contract murder in Russia is turning point to our society. We must turn over and close this shameful black page in our history. And we will overcome the grip of gray secret police on our throat, uproot its cancerous net from the life of Russian people."

I still don't see what this has to do with a rock concert in Moscow?  Paul McCartney preformed there and there was no backlash.

If Russia is still the same country portrayed in that epic and monumental film, Rocky IV (and I'm sure it is), then there's no doubt it's evil. I mean hell, one of their main heroes, Ivan Drago, killed Apollo Creed (a great American) without even a hint of remorse.

I'm not sure what this thread is actually about, but I felt that my voice needed to be heard, and my opinion entered into the record.

I know what you're saying, Exile.  Cripes, I remember when I was in high school and they invaded my country out of the blue.  Luckily, we had a group of students who rallied together and called themselves "Wolverines" and fought against them. The leader was cool too....  He kept saying "nobody puts (uncle) Sammie in a corner."

Thread = epic fail.

And let's not forget the insidious Russian spy, Alex Krychek, whose whole goal during the '90s was to thwart Mulder and Scully's research into the global conspiracy to generate an alien-human hybrid using common bees to spread the extraterrestrial virus to the populous.
