      Yes, this is true, when one starts speaking Russian as a new language, his ass starts twitching and laughing.
      It is very entertaining.

    One should not hesitate to learn the language of your enemy. The Russian language in particular helps you understand how the people think – world view, fears, etc. It’s built into the language and therefore the psyche.

    Assad does this because he’s guilty as Hell.

    He knows there is no way back for him getting refuge in France where he used to keep his wife and kids for years. This is sad, to punish his family forever stuck in Siberia, very sad.

    But, wait! Seeing the treason, his own party the Alawites will cut him in pieces and expose those at the Damascus gates.
