Last week the British Embassy announced that British, French and American troops would march with Russian soldiers on Red Square to mark the 65th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany. The Brits said in a statement that the parade may mark the first time British troops have marched in Red Square; I believe the same observation applies to the American troops that will join the parade.
Marching with a regime that serves Polonium milkshakes to its detractors? In Red Square? I wonder if we'll be allowed to carry our own flag - wouldn't want to offend anyone.
This is turning out to be far worse than even I imagined.
