Really? Like what? I can't think of a single company whose livelihood depends on STALKER.

They may be referring to former GSC Game World employees, that founded Vostok (making Survarium(sp?)) who also have assistance with Russian devs/testers and 4A Games (makes Metro games).

Time to move on from this tabloid rigamarole. Maybe they were for real, maybe there weren't. Ukraine is quickly becoming an austerity riddled country especially with living expenses skyrocketing, maybe they needed some hyrvnia bucks.

The kind of trash talk I'd expect from people that don't think on the basis of "Cui Bono?"

This from the guy who calls the U.S. a modern day Roman or Napoleon Empire equivalent. Educate yourself a little bit before you go spouting off about things you clearly don't understand.

Ohhh, look at all the links! Let me guess you're sheep dipped in CNN, FOX, and MSNBC just itching for war with Russia. Just spit it out already. Guess what, the U.S. today is an Imperialist Empire. FACT.

Facts about the U.S. Imperial Empire:

* U.S. has attempted to illegally overthrow 50 governments (most of which were "democratic" , just not "U.S. Democratic")
* Dropped bombs on people in over 30 countries
* Attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders
* Attempted to suppress populist movements in over 20 countries
* Illegally interfered with democratic processes in over 30 countries
* Over 30 million people have died following WW2 in conflicts started by the U.S. over 201 times

That's quite a score card, Russia doesn't even come close to committing the obvious Imperialist policy of the West.

When one Empire falls, another takes its place. Its not rocket science. And the people inside arrogantly defend it, just as citizens have done in other Empires. Just as people were in a fervor over lies to go to Vietnam, lies to go to war with Iraq TWICE, lies to bomb Libya, and a huge lie to almost bomb Syria (all documented as lies as they were told, now proven by Senate Committees and leaked documents).

Comparison between Rome and the U.S. has been made by many scholars:

* The Roman Republic had a constitution, and the Roman Senators rarely followed it (The U.S. Congress and presidencies have continued to ignore the constitution and even find "loop holes" to get around things they "don't like")
* Rome and America are the most powerful actors in their respective time periods in History, with near complete dominance in military, technology, ideas, etc. (The U.S. also has over 800+ bases in countries other than their own)
* Both Empires in their respective time periods believed themselves to be "exceptional" spreading their influence by force if necessary
* Both had/have a military expansionist policy (which can not be maintained in the long run, see U.S. debt)
* Both had/have a growing, corrupt aristocracy/oligarchy that inevitably made/make the divide between the rich and poor quite wide

Being part Native American, with cultures that were decimated by arrogant white folk, please excuse me in my unwavering, eyes wide open view of the failure that is U.S. Foreign Policy.

Educate yourself on truth before you go spouting off on things you clearly refuse to understand. I couldn't help but reply, with your one sentence in your unwavering belief that you seem to "understand" something that I do not. Kind of speaks of the kind of arrogance and exceptional-ism I just went over.

Toodles.

I'm sure Putin didn't use his own money. It probably came from the credit cards stolen off of the bodies of the passengers of flight MH17...

Wow, more Russia bashing, nice. The kind of trash talk I'd expect from people that don't think on the basis of "Cui Bono?"

Did you just link to a couple of poorly made YouTube conspiracy vids, one arguing all queda doesn't exist?

They say there is no such thing as a dumb question, but that was one. Pretty funny labeling what I linked as "conspiracy" though (and I know exactly what you are implying), even though its fact that guy is a criminal. He was behind arming the creation of "Al Qaeda" (aiding and abetting extremists, aka a crime, aka state sponsored terrorism). In a court of law, if you didn't know, a conspiracy is a planned crime by two or more people. If you want an example: Bush and Co planned and lied about reasons to go to war in Iraq, citing "WMD's and Al-Qaeda Supported by Saddam," both of which were lies (Fact), therefore conspiracy to commit a [war] crime.

Soon people will start dismissing history and say that Caesar wasn't killed by a conspiracy - it was a all hoax, he choked on some fruit!

But I'll let that one pass since you don't understand the irony of the title of that documentary, mostly because the documentary is not that extremists under the banner of that name do not exist, its that the name itself was made up by Brzezinski and Friends. What would you like me to link to you for easy information access on the person I am discussing?

Mika is an imbecile, because her father is one too. It runs in the family.

Its not just that. Her father is Zbigniew Brzezinski, who is a War Criminal and this. It doesn't surprise me that her arrogance and pig-headedness was likely passed down from her Father.

He's one of several pieces of shit, for the lack of a better word, that nobody votes for that work behind the scenes. You know, the policy makers/writers/advisers of a couple decades now worth of terrible Administrations since the 80s. His book "Know Thy Enemy" reads like a fkn love affair of Imperialist and Nazi ideology. He was also cheer-leading policy on Ukraine during the illegal Putsch takeover and currently Russia bashing.

Anyways, so yes, she is a very narrow-minded person and this is just one of several examples with this Activision speech of hers. But hey, its not like we can expect much from the media talking heads...

@ Beamer

Lol, those memes are goodins, never seen em. I'm getting older myself, 30s, but my family grew up I guess 'comfortable middle class.' I now make more than my parents combined, so I actually provide for them even though they live in different states, because I think its necessary.

@jdreyer

A good summary of reasons. Don't forget also that most top economists and even historians have stated that Nations, Empires, etc. that continually have large Defense Budgets continue to decline over time because of it. That is mainly due to the fact large Defense Budgets (IE, War Making Budgets) do not benefit a real, civilian economy whatsoever. It also funnels money out of Infrastructure repair or advancement, Education, etc. and then makes the Civilian populace pay for their War Debts in the long run.

That all, of course, is combined with the fact there have been numerous policies enacted that essentially see a marriage between Corporate and Government interests. I call this out for what it actually is, Mussolini style Fascism, which strongly supported Corporate interests. Eisenhower warned of course, in his famous speech, about the "Military Industrial Complex" which did not die after the Cold War, and has thus continually eroded U.S. society at all levels.

This study does not take into account other places. U.S. falling behind 17th and 20th percentiles for reading/writing. Its time to up the defense budget to 80% to make those numbers really shine.

While keeping in mind that agencies like the CIA have committed some rather heinous crimes throughout their colorful history, especially on the international level. NSA is like the Stasi, and the CIA are like ruthless Mob enforcers.

I have a windows phone, but mostly just because I wanted to save money and didn't need anything fancy at the time. The higher end Windows 8 ones are fairly decent as well, but for sure if you want a phone that does everything from being a remote or accessing your media servers, get an Android.

I can't imagine they won't not introduce you to up-and-comer Napoleon Bonaparte by the end of the story. Seeing as Nov. 8th, 1799 was an important date, the end of the French Revolution, and Napoleon's coup. Will it have a warning about one corruption replacing another with imperialism and so on? And the Napoleonic Code of course.
