Ah, the Effing Russians

Gosh, why would anyone who escaped Russia's loving embrace feel the need for lots of guns between them and Putin?

Russia is going to review whether or not it was legal for the Soviet Union to recognize the Baltic states as independent nearly 25 years ago, according to a report by Interfax.

A "source familiar with the situation" told Interfax on Tuesday that the Russian Prosecutor General's office began checking the legality of the recognition of the independence of the Baltics.

Because the Nazi-Soviet Pact that gave Moscow those three Baltic states was totally legitimate.

We should review whether Russia is actually the successor state to the USSR and whether they have to reapply to the United Nations for membership.

Without their P-5 Security Council seat, of course, which belonged to a state that no longer exists.
